Any chance we can get the 1.5 update or at least the 2.0 update (once released at the end of this month)? They are very significant changes to the game and it would be very appreciated. Thanks for everything you do!
The new update for "X4: Foundations" has been released earlier today! The free update 2.60 is now available and improves the in-game economy significantly. In addition to a number of smaller fixes and improvements, the 2.60 update also optimizes navigation in the game, both for the player guidance system and for AI ships.
While all of the above (free) updates may also contain new assets, we will bundle a lot of new ships, station modules, missions and new sectors into the first big expansion. Our rough timeline is to have an expansion based on introducing the Split race, their ships, a new Split economy and of course a large new area of space shortly after releasing 3.00 2b1af7f3a8
