(Idea) Argon military Museum

Post by mr.WHO » Mon, 16. Jul 18, 19:46

Looking at X4 screenshots with Teladi Falcon I noticed strong X2 wibes with the design. So I thought "why not to ride on this nostalgy" a little bit more?

How about making an area in Argon space, that would be the museum of various Argon designs from all previous games.

I think the designs from X-BTF and X2 would need some facelift, but to reduce the work they would be stripped of all surface elements (e.g. turrets) as well as interior (lets say that Argons stripped them from all equipment and welded the interiors).

This would also serve as a prevention measure...because we all know we would try to steal them the moment we arrive tho the place :)
And we know some noble moders will turn them space worthy in no time :)


I don't think all Argon ships from all games would be possible, but most notable "Hero" ship.

E.g Various iterations of "Argo One" (since X-BTF).
Maybe some other significant ships, like Nova, Buster, X-Shuttle, some Khaak and Xenon war derelicts, etc.


This would be useful in multiple ways:
- easter egg
- atmosphere builder
- possible side mission (actual museum heist?)
- assets for moders

Would be a nice idea for a mod. Importing the models into the game. Sounds like a lot of work to do properly so probably will not be in game.

Nice idea though.

Keep in mind that it's still a work in progress although it's taking shape nicely.

It's actually an X-BtF design. X2 was still copying the original design elements, X3 was the series that threw everything out the window design-wise.

Now that you mentioned it - you're right! The Falcon was "flying wing" already in X-BTF.

idea to directly re-use models for this avoiding much re-work on them: dont make the Exhibits life-size but instead scaled-down models - this way they look more acceptable without having to basically re-do them.
(might also be fun to use these as RC Toys :D especialy a Xenon N)

Who needs a dangling Dice? When you have a dangling Falcon?

It would be nice (and nostalgic) to come across a hidden sector filled with derelicts left over from battles from previous X games.

I spent more time on the bridge of an Argon Colossus than I did behind the wheel of my car. Ah, the good ol' days!
