Somthing tells me it will be your choice where the HQ goes, they have spent alot of time on the new station construction systems and have said nothing really limits where you can build one, so it would be really odd for the PHQ to be "Choose from point A,B,C or D"

@radcapricorn : Is it?! I set up my PHQ where I wanted to in X3... Why shouldn't I do the same in this one… I don"t follow you
I'm talking about how "find" missions worked in TC through XR, not whether or not you're free to place your PHQ.
I understand now :lol:

Actually, in the first X4 presentation we saw mission guidance saying "Find a suitable wreck or abandoned station for your home". If it didn't change since then, that would mean that we are able to choose our PHQ location, but from stationary, maybe randomly generated at the start, preset spots.

hmmmmmmmmm, well if that is the case, those spots better be good, because I feel like what with the new station stuff I'm going to turn it into a dread fortress of factorys, corporate security patrols and perfectly law abideing..."Privateers" to send at my enemies.

Yeah, having a choice is just what makes an X game and if it is really just one spot in the beginning and this turns out to be problematic I am sure some modders are going to easily surpass this Limitation. Followed by Egosoft adding more options :P They always listened with XR. I am not worried at all.

and

Definitely look like variants of the same ship to me, with the shots taken from different sides (front / back)

The first one looks like perhaps a fighter variant with, presumably, mining lasers equipped, and the second one looks like a trader variant with an extended cargo bay out the back and slightly different styling. But the core design of the triangular part of the ship is too similar to be unrelated.

I like the design of the ship too, it looks really sweet :)

Amazing painting even if green is not my favorite but looks like we could do some excentricities like this and THAT SOUNDS REALLY COOL!!!

@Miniding
My thought exactly! Not my style either but the possibility is what makes this screenshot amazing.
But will it pink? ô.o That's the hardcore screenshot I am still waiting for, a salmon colored ship, maybe with a hello kitty logo. No matter how powerful your paint mod system is, if I can't obliterate a system with a pink fleet of death there is no use. :P

Paint job actually looks really good. I hope we find out more on whether you unlock/acquire them or have free choice.

I'm pretty sure they only used that as an easter egg once, for the release date announcement. And that was a differently structured license number.
