Patch v1.30 on the horizon

It looks like the guys over at egosoft are still hammering away; trying to improve X-Rebirth. Patch v1.30 sees the introduction of steam-workshop support which should make it much easier for people to play/install mods. Patch 1.30 also has quite a long list of fixes (most of for either AI, user interface etc.)

The new patch hasnt been officially released yet; but I doubt we see a large change between now and its final public release. So with the long list of changes I have tried to go through it and see what its about;




I also wanted to see how the performance of the game has changed from its first release. Egosoft have said about various improvements since the initial release. So taking a older copy (inital release of X-Rebirth) I compared it to the new v1.30 patch. Please bare in mind these are very rough tests; as frame rates could vary somewhat depending on the universe spawns.




On my system (which is an nvidia system), I get around a 20-40% improvement. So basically from the initial release of 20fps, its moved up-to around 25-30fps. Which for me is still very low for a i7 2600k, 670GTX, 16gb RAM. Most games run between 50-60fps (60 being the highest as I have sync on).

Anyway, hope you find this information useful. I am eager to see how much activity there is on this post; since I feel like a lot of the x-community as moved on.

The impression I get from watching your vids (and many others) is that the game is visually pretty but lacking much in the way of longevity or depth.

I have not bought it and probably won't, unless it's on offer for a tenner at some point and with a no-Steam exe. Although they made a lot of money on release that will not last long and they then have to face the fact that they p*ssed off thousands of people who will be reluctant to ever buy from them again. They appear fortunate in that a bank or banks seem willing to extend them facilities to keep going.

Meanwhile I'm looking forward to Limit Theory and possibly Elite Dangerous. Star Citizen not so much, I don't particularly like what I've seen of it so far. To keep occupied until then I've re-installed X3TC to finally complete all the missions. I've started from scratch again rather than use previous saves and am having a blast. I might at some point get AP as I've not played that yet. So I've not so much moved on as moved back, so to speak.

It's a sad state of affairs for Egosoft but ultimately, one they've brought on themselves.

Well, I might be one of the few that has not moved on, still have faith. Gameplay still poor but that in my opinion is standard for Egosoft it is the mod's that put the petals on the stalk and until the game is in a near final state it is impossible for any real changes to be made .... One thing is for sure Bernd must have pissed off a lot if not all of the old teams.,,,must have very poor man management skills. I can not think of any game on the horizon that matches Rebirth for possible potential....Shallow yes but sure is pretty to look at....A bit like a slutty princess, good to be with but hard to live with.....1.30 is the first step back from a dark dark place.
