Patchnotes via Steam Community

The X4: Foundations 4.00 update and our new expansion X4: Cradle of Humanity have now been out for almost 3 days, and we can't thank you enough for the massive support you've been showing us. Concurrent player numbers are at their highest level since the release of the base game in November 2018, and we've been receiving fantastic feedback on a wide variety of game features. Thank you!

Having said that... it turns out that a few screws were still a little loose, especially in some of the plot missions, and we've been tightening them as quickly as we can for a new hotfix. Check out the changelog while you download the update:

  • Fixed sometimes not entering superhighways during travel mode.
  • Fixed not being able to claim abandoned Rapier.
  • Fixed Solborn Militia Outpost not respawning when destroyed.
  • Fixed ship Silverback in Defenders of Sol mission getting stuck.
  • Fixed Wartime Economics mission getting stuck in dialog cutscene when entering Savage Spur II with map open.
  • Fixed ship delivery objective in Towards Distant Shores mission failing unintentionally.
  • Fixed rescue ship in Terran gamestart Displaced mission sometimes being very far away.
  • Fixed missing Argon dock blueprint for player during Displaced mission in Terran gamestarts.
  • Fixed ship to escort in Escape Plan mission sometimes not moving to station.
  • Fixed missions sometimes not continuing when saved and loaded during dialogue.
  • Fixed Wartime Economics mission getting stuck if last Xenon flees instead of being destroyed.
  • Fixed missing Preferred Build Method option for resupply ships.
  • Fixed order icons in Object List and Property Owned menus not showing correct order when using Repeat Orders
  • Fixed wrong station construction state in Station Build menu under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed Encyclopedia errors if no engines are known.
  • Fixed several causes of crashes.
