Any summary how are new Argon and Teladi E ships re-balanced in general?

Comparing to old ships and possibly comparing to Paranid E ships?
Here you can see them in action, look on the timestamps of the video, you csn find the equipment stats in the last 1/3 of the video.

Is there Condor and Stork E? I don't see them anywhere mentioned or see in beta footage, but I think there was a screenshot of XL or is this jsut an E version of Herron?

So far the "only" new capital ships (with each needing according to Lino 6-8 weeks of work) seem to be those:
  • ARG Behemoth-E (L, destroyer)
  • ARG Colossus-E (XL, carrier)
  • TEL Phoenix-E (L, destroyer)
  • TEL Kranich-E (L, miner, both variants (gas, ore))
  • TEL Reiher-E (L, freighter)
"Only" in quotes because there are other new ships as well which I haven't indexed yet - at least 2 new capital ships (Xenon, Kha'ak) and a few new M models.

So all in all an awful lot of work which went into new ship models _for the base version_ (just don't forget that the upcoming DLC has "some" new ships and assets as well, all produced in the same timeframe in parallel)

Bit sad - given how great and industrial new Teladi ships looks like, Condor and Stork would look amazing.

Well, I guess we still have some items to list for 8.0 :D

Oh and with Terraformer and Timelines stuff, I have a feeling the DLC along 8.0 will contain Aldrin as they are most organically related to the new stuff from 7.0/timelines :)

That would be the Crane-E, I believe. The Heron's ring isn't as round.

Wow that new Nebulas background in some of new systems looks so fantastic its finally better game than E*E online . Finally something interesting on backgrounds during raiding systems.

New xenon ships looks so high tech much better than old bugs styles .

Egosoft asking for feedback all the time but i got feeling that if they keep doing what they doing its correct way.

I've seen screenshots of cokpits for new Terraformer ships and PE, SE - these are flyable/capturable/boardable.

No, as always you can continue playing your existing game. Do read the rules at the top of the public beta forum if you decide to participate, though, especially the part about backing up your savegames.

I am trying to get into the beta, I'm on Steam, the process constant starts / stops the download and goes into validation is this normal behaviour?
It was a woman who drove me to drink... you know I never went back and thanked her.

Don't try to outweird me, three-eyes. I get stranger things than you free with my breakfast cereal.

It doesn't sound normal. Try restarting the Steam client. If you're still having problems then you'll need to contact Steam support, I'm afraid, as we don't control the download process.

OK thanks for the swift answer. I have restarted Steam and the download several times.

I miss the ships that aren't designed for head-on attacks; most of them have frontal assault capabilities except for the "Raptor" and Supply Ships... It's true that in the latest DLCs, we see more ships designed like that, but it would be fun to see ships with strong lateral and rear attacks. In my opinion, it should be the Teladi and the Boron, as they are more peaceful factions not so focused on warfare.

Thank you for all your positive feedback on our 7.00 Public Beta launch last week, and also on our dedicated trailer. Those of you who have been with us for a while know how things proceed from here on out, but for all new X4 pilots, here's a heads up: During the Public Beta phase, we will regularly release new beta versions that fix issues found in the previous version, or improve features. This way, we are slowly but surely working our way towards the release of the final 7.00 update.

The next step in this direction is today's release of 7.00 Public Beta 2, which you can download now. At the end of this news you will find the changelog for this new version.

How Do I Take Part in the Public Beta?
Every player who owns X4: Foundations has the opportunity to download the new 7.00 Public Beta version. In order to ensure that beta participants are aware of the risks and rules involved, we ask all interested players to visit our forum, where they will find the rules and disclaimers, as well as practical instructions for participating in the beta. Follow this link to our forum - no registration required - to find the relevant information.

Frequently Asked Questions
Since the start of the 7.00 Public Beta, a number of questions have repeatedly come up, and we would like to address those here:

How do I deactivate or change the UI Glow effect?
From the X4 start menu, head to "Settings", then "Graphics Settings". You will find the "UI Glow Quality" entry. You can select "off" to deactivate the effect completely, or switch to "Low", "Medium" and "High" presets.

I can't access "Timelines", it's greyed out.
The 7.00 Public Beta does not include our next expansion X4: Timelines. The expansion will not be part of any public beta tests. You will not be able to test X4: Timelines in the 7.00 Public Beta of X4: Foundations. The menu item being greyed out is therefore intentional.

How do I start the new "Existential Crisis" endgame content?
The crisis will trigger upon reaching around half a billion in assets, most of which should be military. This is based on construction cost, i.e. not the monetary value you see in the Empire Menu. Boso Ta will contact you and guide you through the crisis.

The 7.00 Public Beta announcement said I can now board / claim / fly Xenon ships. Why doesn't it work?
This should now work in 7.00 Public Beta 2, released today. Please update your game if you're in the Public Beta branch.

I have reverted back from the 7.00 Public Beta branch to version 6.20 of X4 and now my mouse is slow when looking around while walking / in first person mode. What's up with that?
The 7.00 Public Beta modifies and adds a few settings in the key binding configuration file, therefore rendering the file incompatible with older versions of the game. Please restore your key bindings to their default by going to Settings > Controls > Input Profiles > Load Profile, and selecting the Reset to Default > Default - Keyboard & Mouse / Controller option.

I'm experiencing an issue with ...
Please share your feedback / bug report in our Public Beta Feedback forum. Before doing so, please make sure you read the Public Beta Rules and Information, which you can find in a sticky thread at the top of that forum.

Specific test / feedback requests
If you have already visited our Public Beta Feedback Forum, you will have seen that we are asking for feedback and reports on specific game features. We would like to explicitly point out some of these requests here so that a wider audience can see them, and ideally participate in reporting and sending feedback: Please post your feedback as a new thread in our Public Beta Feedback Forum, and make sure you have read the rules and information beforehand.
