The X4 internet thread (no not another silly poll)

Post by Khaak_Hammer » Mon, 4. Dec 06, 23:27

This one's just to detirmine just what Gamers want out of X4, I shall be the final judge here and shall attempt to remain as un-biased as possable

Feel free to post anything but first a few rules.

No swearing

No player/moderator/egosoft bashing

No posts like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, try to give a reason with your answer.

No posts like oh no it's not profitable we/they wont do it! this is just a thread to find out what they want NOT whats going to happen.

Not quite sure what you mean by split screen/ multi screen.....
Why not Paranid Screen or Boron Screen...

Some 4 or 5 years ago, I thought this a good idea with X-BTF and X-Tension... When X2 came out, I still thought it would be wicked...

When I had spent some time (read year or so) on X2, I realised it might be not quite as good as I thought - what happens when you are not there but your friends are - do they simply squish you out of existence... Now in X3, (again had it for as long as it's been out)... Am thinking it's not too good to have multi-player on a warfare game...

i would love X4 o be multiplayer but it would have to be just right, i think the way the X universe works it would force interaction far more than any other game. imagine how difficult it would be to do anything with everyone after you, but it you got together in a group of 5 or 10 you could find a small sector and try to seize control, there would have to be a way to make money from holding sectors like a central station that bought goods which players could supply from stations at a profit, so a group of players could hold a sector and make a profit with it to upgrade ships and buy new ones. some ectors would be more valuable than others of course, eventually im guessing lots of small clans would merge to make larger ones to control more of the universe untill there are a few major clans with huge battles between them and a system by which each clan must have a leader so their would be civil wars for power. eventually one player would take control of the universe, could be years though, and then the universe would be reset. it should be done with the less computer taxing X2 programming i think.

i say it has definately got to be single player, as in not MMO live EVE online.
thats the thing that sets X3 apart from EVE. X3 isn't a time sink thanks so much to that fast forward button 8)

Hmm, none of the above. I would definitely like to see a game that can fully utilise multi-core CPUs. By the time X4 comes out, we should have quad-core cpus, and dual-core will be common.

Oh, and also a whole different Universe :)

The poll options aren't mutually exclusive. It could be SP or MP, and a console game at the same time.

Personally, I'm hoping that if there is an X4 it will stay on the PC and stay single player. I don't play well with others :D

If there was to be an online element I wouldn't mind a way of talking with other players while in game. At the moment I seem to spend half my time playing and the other half reading the forums. Both are enjoyable and combining the two could be errr... interesting.

Another online component I'd go for would be subscription based content. Something new every month... missions, ships, sectors... that kind of thing.

But definitely not multi-player. No no no ;) I don't want some screaming 10 year old laying waste to my carefully planned empire just because he's OD'd on sugar and has the reflexes of a... (what has fast reflexes??)
Anyway, that's my tuppence worth.
