7.10 Public Beta now available

Post by Gregory »

When one beta finishes, another one starts - here we are again! Following the great reception of the free 7.00 update for X4: Foundations, we're diving straight into preparations for the next update. We look forward to your support in the 7.10 Public Beta, which is now available. You'll find the changelog in our forums.

How Do I Take Part in the Public Beta?
Every player who owns X4: Foundations has the opportunity to download the new 7.10 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.[/b]

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.

FAQ on X4: Timelines and the Future of X4
In case you missed it: shortly after the release of the latest expansion, X4: Timelines, we published an extensive FAQ addressing some of your most pressing queries about Timelines. In the FAQ, we list all the rewards you can unlock in Timelines for your X4 sandbox, and explain how the development of X4: Timelines has positively impacted, and will continue to impact, the future of X4. We also provide a brief outlook on our priorities for the next major updates (likely to be numbered 7.50 and 8.00). Feel free to check out the FAQ in our Steam News.

Sapporo and Dart Ship Showcase
The 7.10 Public Beta is making some changes to two of our exciting new ships, so we're showcasing them a bit more closely in this news. Both of these ships can be used in your X4 sandbox by playing our latest expansion, X4: Timelines (see FAQ for unlock conditions). Please check the changelog at the end of the news to see the changes made to these ships in 7.10 Public Beta 1.

Sapporo
(originally a sturdy Terran deep-space explorer, later refitted to fill in as a nimble light destroyer and saviour of humanity)

X4-Timelines-Reveal_4.png

"The Sapporo class was created as a non-combatant exploration vessel to be used to scout out new locations for the Terran to colonise. As the Terraformer conflict ramped up, the Sapporo was quickly redesigned to perform as a mobile command and control centre, able to oversee larger battles and provide a powerful pivot point for any battle. It still maintains several features of its originally planned role, such as its high speed and manoeuvrability."

Dart
(an unreasonably fast racer for the reckless, which pilots with a stronger sense of self-preservation may prefer to keep as a trophy)

X4-Timelines-Reveal_2.png

"The Dart was initially released as a mail-in kit project, to which an aspiring racer could subscribe and have parts shipped to them periodically. Due to its popularity, the Dart was quickly offered as a ready-to-fly ship, and the project took no new kit customers. It is easy to identify a kit-built Dart from a production one, as the tooling for the rear titanium fins was recreated due to complaints about the fins' shape not fitting that of the rest of the ship. Despite being discontinued, the kits remain remarkably popular, and incomplete kits regularly sell for beyond the price of a production ship."

Modding Support: New Documentation in the X Wiki
We would like to inform X4 modders that we have changed the structure of the "Modding Support" section of our X Wiki. Additionally, four new guides have been added to the wiki: Community modders have also added new guides to their parts of the Wiki, so be sure to check it out; it will certainly make a modder's heart beat faster!

Question - does changes on Dart, Sapporo, Odachi and X-Shuttle will break something, if I already will own/spawn them in sandbox universe?

I have not yet unlocked them, so I wonder if I should put TImelines on hold till 7.10 release?

My captured Sapporo got patched - it has it's new main weapon. And the X-Shuttle has it's new beefy shield generator installed when I loaded my save into the beta 7.10.

So game away - Egosoft got you covered :)

edit: The Odachi turrets are firing again as well - so this fix is also patched into savegames where the ship has already been acquired :thumb_up:

Tried the patch on an unmodded save. The new L ship main turret works and the Odachi turret is fixed. I can also see that I have the blueprints for the new frontier tier of weapons.

However, the HEPT blueprint never unlocked after the research of the three new frontier ships. And the new components Tier 2/3 are not available when trying to build a ship. Currently unable to build a frontier ship with the new patch, e.g. the xperimental shuttle doesn't show any compatible shields to install despite the research.

Steam beta's new always-record feature should be really handy for bug hunting!

I presume posting short clips via Steam is a bad idea given that the videos are only supposed to stick around for a couple of days.

If you are using 7.10 beta and have this issue then please make a report in the beta forum. The XShuttle blueprints, including its equipment, is given on handoff and does not require research. There was a report already about some of the tier not being compatible, this is going to be addressed soon.

You're going to need to be a bit more specific. What exactly is the "CPU Ship Bug" that you are referring to?
