Less than a month has passed since we expanded and improved the X4 universe again with X4: Tides of Avarice and the major 5.00 update. We haven't just been resting on our laurels since then, but have launched straight into update 5.10. We're excited to bring you this next update for X4: Foundations today. Please find the full changelog in our forums.

We would like to reassure you that we're not quite done yet with our vision for X4, but please note that the next item on the agenda for the game is a little further off, and that we won't be able to get into specifics about it for quite a while.

In the meantime, we hope that you continue to enjoy X4, build your empire, explore far away systems, dive into the storylines, and let yourselves be immersed in the X Universe.

Thank you for your continued support!

:D When you guys get them working .. Looking forward to doing just that.

Nice update though, the game as a whole is getting much closer to the polished state we all desire.

First line of the 5.10 changelog: "Added option to choose which ship to transfer to Mr Dagobas Lahubasis Yorilos III in mission Scrapyard Salvage of Avarice story."

This is a pretty cool idea but how is this supposed to work, and what ships can we choose as options? I'm doing that mission right now and trying to swap a Magpie for the salvaged ship, but I only get the option to transfer the salvaged ship. Both ships are docked at Tidebreak.

I really hope the time you guys take involves the mighty Boron. I really miss the species since the release of X Rebirth. I also a have suggestion if so, please keep the ship design of X3 Albion Prelude and make them just a bit “realistic”.

Anyway, I love the work you’ve put in X4!

Update 5.10 Hotfix 3 released

We don't usually create a news item for every hotfix, but we're making an exception for 5.10 Hotfix 3 of X4: Foundations, which was released today.

As many of you are aware, it's been quite a while since you were last able to access the paint mods that are in your online inventory for X4: Foundations. The reason for this is that we have been working on extensive changes to the Ventures feature of the game, which is part of the same online functionality as the paint mods. Since that work is still ongoing, and we don't want to keep you from your favourite paint mods any longer, today's hotfix re-enables the option to log in to your Egosoft account and access your paint mods.

Please note the following points about 5.10 Hotfix 3:
  • The most basic online functionality is re-enabled, i.e. you can log in to, and out of, your Egosoft account from within the game.
  • You will be able access any paint mods that are in your online inventory, with the same limitations and conditions as before.
  • You will NOT be able to build new venture docks or send ships on ventures, and you will not see any menus related to this.
  • You will NOT receive any "visitor" ships from other players.
We apologise for any inconvenience over the past few months, while the online inventory service was unavailable. As a small gift, you will receive ten units of the Alpha Zone paint mod (pictured below) when you log in to your Egosoft account. The paint mods will be available in both existing games and new game starts.

You can link your game to your Egosoft account in the settings section of the Egosoft forum.

As mentioned in a previous item in April, we would like to reassure you that we're not quite done yet with our vision for X4. However, the next item on the agenda for the game is some way away, so we won't be able to get into specifics about it for quite a while.

Thank you for your continued support.

Being selfish, let's hope it won't take too long for the new items. As always, looking forward to new features and improvements.

Why are they limited? And why are features which were at launch being added back to the game piecemeal.

Glad i can access my old skins, just don't get why access was removed to begin with even if you took ventures offline.

Also does anyone have any information about future updates to X4? Things seem to have just come to a grinding halt.

Access was removed because the database that contains the information was taken offline while it was undergoing major work for the future of the venture system. Things have settled down a bit, so we've brought the part of the database back online now.

And I can assure you that nothing has "come to a grinding halt". As explained in the news announcement above, we are extremely busy working on new things; we're just not ready to talk about them yet. Development doesn't happen overnight, so you may have to wait a while longer.
