Sorry to disappoint you, but these functions were just experiments. The Online Features options will have further uses down the line, but these functions aren't among them.
I just hope for you that it is nothing like buy a new paintjob for some real $.

We are interested in your experimentsssss!

You give us hope. A part of us.

You dont need to deliver a ready product the next 5 years, but if you have the image, that you are generally 'open' for it, it calms down a lot of us, even if you never finish something.

I wonder what the Venture station modules are for exactly. The two different shipyards for players are accessible. I haven't tried building them.

That's for Venturer, the "multiplayer" (more like send your ships to their server to do some RNG tasks) mode that we are actually getting.

If they actually waste time on this I'm writing egosoft off entirely. People said they REALLY didn't understand their market after X:R, and it's looking like they may be right.
People have been asking for multiplayer on these forums for years, at least since X3 was first announced. Similarly we got the epic waste of time that was walking around space stations in XR, again because all the "muh immershun" people here begging for it. Problems occur precisely because ED tries so hard to please the players.

This game doesn't need MP, at all.

It does really need Co-op though!

Very nice find.

Since it is optional there is no need to to drop salt around.

I would like it. There can't be enough options to have, nobody is forced to something in any way as it looks like.
Even if MP is not used or only to drop by a friend from time to time, to hang around for some spacecoffee and a nice chat.

Some keep their SP, others start a new coop game or even fight each other for the domination etc...

So whot? Ppl should have the freedom to play the game how they want to, with or without MP.

There's something to be said about people who decide they speak for everyone, and its not something I wish to commit to the ages on this forum.
mp in whatever form, in my humble opinion, would add, not subtract from the net enjoyment value of quite a few games, including X-whatever iteration.
Egosoft are a canny business, and as such, get to chose what features are in the games they make. I'm happy they listen to their customers,
for what its worth, I'm not the biggest fan of X:R, but buying it with a view to understanding the direction ego are taking technically, & support them in making X4 is something I don't regret for a second.
however much I mutter, ;)
If mp appears as an option, whenever, its an interesting addition.

Take one look at most ARK servers to find out why MP in 4X would end up being an awful idea. Sure it sounds great on paper until you realize that a not insignificant portion of gamers is dicks just for the sake of being dicks.

You can spin all the tales you want about how awesome it would be to have EVE online in the X universe but at the end of the day, you still have to deal with every single problem that represents and face the reality that one jerk can now ruin any work you've done while you are sleeping.

Unless you legitimately would enjoy finding out one morning that someone sat in a glitched area of your PHQ and got your own security forces to shoot the station to death just because they could.

Egosoft has been planning and developing X online since early 2000.

I hope when you say that you mean the direct functions listed and not the idea of an actual direct connect server idea. I mean we know about the venture missions but I still hope a real MP might still happen :)
