X4: Foundations v2.0
Egosoft has just released a major patch for X4
What's in the patch:
Player shipyards, Steam Workshop, rebalanced combat/economy
EGOSOFT is happy to announce the availability of X4: Foundations Update 2.00 including the following main features:
Player owned shipyards, wharfs and equipment docks: Players can now build and operate their own shipyards. This allows leaving an even deeper impact on the game's economy. Build ships for yourself or deliver them to the war factions. Participate in the faction wars on the highest possible level or just make a lot of profitsss.
Steam Workshop integration: Starting with version 2.00 X4: Foundations now also supports installing game mods via the Steam workshop. This will make it easier than ever for players to try out some of the already existing cool X4 mods!
Rebalancing of fight and economy: With Update 2.00 we changed a lot of parameters of the game economy and fight balancing. The goals include making crew gaining experience a bit easier, but also making a lot of changes to the turret and capital ship fight balancing.
As with the previous updates there are many more features and improvements, and the Russian as well as Japanese localisations have now made it out of beta. Find the details about all fixes and features here: Release Notes Update 2.00.
Yeah the way it sounded in their email is that v3.0 should be out this year as well near the end of the year and they are currently in beta with v2.2. I have always waited to buy these games because I know they need more cooking before they are ready. Plus I am in no hurry since I have yet to complete one of these games still 🙂 I should really make it a personal goal of mind to thoroughly play one of these X games.
