X4: Foundations 2.50 released

Post by CBJ » Tue, 28. May 19, 17:39

We are pleased to announce the release of 2.50, which introduces some new features to X4: Foundations as well as fixing a number of issues with the game. We have added a whole new class of Auxiliary ships, and associated resupply orders, to help you support your fleet. We have also added a blacklist feature to enable your ships to avoid dangerous areas, and new inventory management functionality so that items collected by your pilots can be transferred to you or to a safe location. Also with this release, the Linux version of the game is now available to all players, and Tobii eye-tracking is supported for those of you playing on Windows.

Full release notes are available here.

Rest assured that this release is just part of our ongoing program of fixes and features, and that the focus of our next update will be on improvements to the in-game economy.

Thanks Egosoft, for giving such great support to the game! A lot of folks like to get on the bash Egosoft bandwagon because it is trendy or something, but I think you guys have done a fantastic job with X4 so far. Sure it could be better, but I appreciate that you are continuing to work hard to make it into a great game.

Regarding the comment about improvements to in-game economy, would you care to comment as to how exactly you look to improve the economy? What about it, do you feel, needs fixing? Also, are we still on track with 3.0 for the sector ownership and research improvements which were mentioned in the original roadmap?

Please add UNIQUE items, ships, engines, shields and more.
These are rare things that are impossible to buy at the stations.
For example, a very rare ship that is difficult to find in space.
In the wreckage of the ships there is nothing valuable, it makes no sense to open containers and wreckage.

Now that 2.5 is out of the way, any chance of some sneak peaks at the upcomin Split assets? Maybe a station or a ship?

I'd settle on a sneak peek for all the issues that are still there, unfixed, before any new content.

For the first time since 2.50 release I could finally find some time to play with the new map features a bit.

I'm very pleased with the new stuff I'm seeing. It will take a bit of time to fully get the hang of it or course, but it will ultimately make large scale empire management much much easier.
So thank you very much for the new toys! Keep on rocking!

This means that at one point you were nothing but an asshole.

Some people never develop beyond this stage.

Thx for the good work.

But...
Can you please fix some anoying issues occurings till 2.0? Like the empty data vault bug (27/28 open, can't get the 28th at Pius Myst cause... empty vault...)
Likewise, and for immersion, it could be a good idea to work on the pathfinding of the npc on the stations... and the issue were sometimes it's impossible to interact with some npc (invisible guys, or "hello" guys with no interactive menu).

Oh, and as we're talking about imersion... I'm not asking for a full exploration of our ships, with rooms where we can find our crew members (could be awesome, btw, but I understand it take hours of work for creating this kind of rooms, especially when you have to work on rooms for capitals ships and the 100+ crew inside of theses)...
BUT! Can you at least do something about :
- Npc pathfinding on cockpit (where 50% of the time they just... don't sit on secondary seats).
- Teladi's tails (Just look any of them sit, you'll understand... it just destroy immersion).
- As we're talking about immersion... Why the crew do not have animations at all? It could be a bit more interseting if they do... Well, it come with the next point ;
- Interactive screens. All theses consoles are just... TV? Photo? Idk. We're on spaceshifts, dammit! Can we have schematics, or any type of info about the hull, the drones, the docked ships... ANYTHING :cry: And if they could be TRUE data about our current situation, it could be awesome!
- And... please... Let us, players, sit on theses secondary seats. I love so much let the pilot do the travel, sometimes... But I'm just standing here, with nothing to do. I'm pretty sure it's noting that hard to do, but it make so much sense.

Well...
I'm complaining a lot, but it's just proof that I love this game. Just... Do something about immersion. I know you want a sandbox-like... but... We're not Xenon. A bit less procedural world, and a bit more immersive world could be a good choice, imo.

Anyway, I'm complaining, but I'll still continue to play untill 3.0 at less... So keep up the good work.

Thanks for the update - that's great - happy we can get the supply ships

That's always been a pleasure to manage a large scale empire and still being able to do some tacticals stuffs

in the next iteration please think about also the very large scale empire tuning/performance optimisation, so the fps available can still be reasonable

Unfortunately giving orders to your fleet and make your commands, even the simplest, be obeyed, still not works. :(
