I would guess Terran, if I had to; but I can't wait for that station to be mine. 8)

Don't like the new stations, because they do not look like space stations at all. Instead, dhey look like some space-castles from a weird space-opera with the feeling of crusading space-knights and the stuff like that.

Howewer i like gothic cathedrals floating in deepspace but not in this game.
The X-series is an oldschool sci-fi game, hope it remains so.
Good choice to include the XTM stuff. I am wodering if it would be an X-tended mod for TC. Funny.

Graphics could be better in some places. I like the first screenie i.e saturn pic with the rings. Apart from that useless to me the screenies i wana see the ui to see if its gone back to x2 style more as that was perfect imo and want them back as well as cockpits. I especially will only consider buying x3 TC if i know the amount of missions in bb is on offer and its a good variety. As thats all i wana do in a x game if i get one i wont touch economy part anymore as did all that in x2 and aint starting over ever again. Hope the storys good with character interactions with choices like in x2. As i like playing storys in games.

i find only 2 bad things in X3 graphics, lack of HDR and poor ship explosions, those just sux hard... they look like they was copied from old x-wing lucasarts games, i hope they will get better in terran conflict.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nx36pS7exzI <--- this game is rly ****** compared to x3, but thats how i would like to see capital ships and stations in X to explode.

Do we really care about graphics? Would we not rather see improved gameplay, UI, content, etc? But a screenshot cannot show those, it can only show the graphical effects. And unfortunately screenshots do sell games, even unplayable games. :(

But since we do see some new shiny things, we do know that all development resources have not been used in the improvement of gameplay. So more (fancy graphics) actually means less. Sad, but Egosoft cannot be blamed for that.

i always tought that "eye candy" effect of X3 was one of the major aspects of that game.

All this is great stuff, but I'm disappointed there's still no official word on a North American publisher. :(

Well no to anger any americans here but that kinda makes me happy.
We here in europe usually have to wait a couple of months for a game to come out if it ever comes out.
Besides this game is developed by an european developer so it should first come out here and not in the gets everything first states.

Sorry rant over

X2 came out first in Australia, then North America, then Europe. The European version had the benefit of having most of the bugs fixed due to us 'beta testers'. X3 came out first in Europe, and everyone whined because of all the bugs. :roll:

Whatever, that's not my point. My point isn't when it's coming out in each location. My point is that it hasn't even been announced as coming out at all in North America. Good grief, understand what a post says before going off on some pointless rant. :roll:

As for Those 2 Ships I dare say they look very "human" so I'd say Terran :)

If Terran Conflict does not come out in North America, can the Euro version be used instead? I would pay to have it shipped across the Atlantic; I love the X series that much, :D .

I'm sure the online shops (Amazon etc) will be stocking it - but without a stateside distributor it will be the people who prefer to buy in shops (and the shops themselves) who lose out.
My new fave game (while waiting for Rebirth) - Kerbal Space Program
