Egosoft are continuing to improve and expand their detailed space trading, exploration and combat sim X4: Foundations.
Along with a bunch of gameplay improvements, one of the highlights of this release is the overhaul of the crew transfer feature. Instead of needing to make an order and having the ships meet up, it's been streamlined to be less of an annoyance. Now you can do it anywhere, along with it being possible to move any amount of people as they will use crew capsules to move around independently. Once you start getting far into the game and build up a little empire, this sounds like it will be much nicer.
The user interface for the new crew transfer system can be found under the Empire Overview in X4: Foundations.
Other patch highlights include:
- Improvements to alerts and notifications
- More information on the Logical Station Overview
- New map filters and key bindings
- Enhancements and fixes to trade behaviour
- Lots of smaller fixes and quality of life improvements
X4: Foundations is such an impressive game when it comes to the scope of it. Being able to fly across a huge universe, with so much simulated as you move around it's crazy. The economy, all the different factions, NPC ships and stations and so much more. Some of the visuals in 52.50 X4: Foundations are absolutely wonderful too.
