I still hope we get an oppourtunity for a Q&A session before release, the Dev blog is a nice addition and I'm sure all X fans appreciate the time and effort taken to add your various bits.

Looking forward to the next ones...

Nice, [edit this was wrong =] although i wouldn't use that autocad program i'd use 3d max or lightwave (lightwave i use) as its far better for optimization work.

Did some nice stuff with autocad tho. :) [end edit]


Oh and nice teaser pic of the new solar plants i think they are. Tho not sure if i like the new or older ones tbh yet as in design wise.

One last thing. Isn't that long cylinder station or cap ship basically the replicator ship off Stargate series?

I think you need to look more carefully. That is 3DS Max.

Lol so it is, duno why i thought it was somit else, not being well might have somit to do with it and the fact the last time i tried max was 2.5 version :p

Lightwave fan myself hence why i didn't recognise max there.

So for Terran Conflict we'll be fighting a giant, cybernetic, toilet paper roll? :D

In all seriousness, it's great to see the devs finally get to giving us some insight to the game before its release.

I was wondering about the sudden spike in cinematic quality for X3:TC, and I'm glad to meet the man behind it.

The best of luck to you, Egosoft. :thumb_up:

It looks sweet like you could fly through the belly of the beast (red glow) even if it looks like bio-plasmic organism/toilet paper roll/Kilrathy battle ship/borg pod thingy :D

course you might come out looking like a toaster

I'm really looking forward to the new Terran stations. They really deliver a far more significant sense of scale than those of the original X3: Reunion space stations.

Terran architecture has a very clean, efficient style to it. It reminds me of mid-twentieth century science-fiction literature.
