The target locking update introduces a secondary method of setting a target object which is very similar to the targeting functionality seen in the X3 games
Releasing a new video, Egosoft and Tri Synergy have announced that a new update is available for X Rebirth. Among other things, you can now hire agents on stations which will make sure that you are always kept up to date on all trade offers from that station. This feature can be combined with the trade computer extension to minimize the need to collect trade offers on stations manually. There is also a new feature that allows the player to see all trade offers per station from the station's info menu.
