Could there be any possibility of planet activity? Ie. flying into atmosphere and mining materials exclusive to that planet? or ground stations?

Functionality on planet surfaces. The ability to make ships and rovers that can only fly around on the planet for mining/fighting in atmosphere only? or would that be too much?

Maybe planets could have unique or rare resources only minable if you have above said text set up?

Just ideas to further enrich this game im looking forward to.

From the Q&A:

Q: Can you land on planets?.
A. No.

Q: Do the new planets have any function (besides from looking pretty)? Do planets have an impact on the workforce?
A: The planets themselves are not directly influencing the workforce. But we are using the system of workforce, so if we have a system which is predominantly populated by Paranids, then the workforce that is going to be on stations will be typically Paranids, too, because they are living there. Of course, also the stations will have habitation modules. You can even build some for multiple races and depending on what the living quarters are for people that's the people working on that station.

Q: Will planets have any influence over economy/universe. Are they only there just to look good?
A: At the moment they have no influence.

Shame as in elite they have unpopulated planetoid bodies like a moon or large asteroid I'd imagine where you can land and play about with buggies and probably as not played in ages set up mining stations. It would be nice if egosoft at least did that instead of proper planet landings with their own ecosystem for wares etc. Ud think they would do by now in 2017. If xrebirth did so well as Bernd said they surely could expand the team by now to do more new stuff and also get fresh ideas.

Nah, let's wait for a good X opus this time, let's hope for new stuff like this when the core will be settled.

And that was as boring and tacked on just like the rest of that game. I much rather have substance and content that a feature tick box.
Get me better AI, Better building, Better fleet management, better core gameplay.

Elite D. has landing on planets. X games have building massive empires of stations and fleets. Pick your poison. Wink

We can only wish.

I wish we could do stuff like in EVE Online to get ingredients from moons and/or planets. Even if managing them remotely from space.

I know this isn't happening, but one can dream.

I dont play x games for empires or fleets just the story manily and any cool scripted well made missions. I once did stations stuff but after 1000s of hours ive had enough of that side of the game. Im not a fan of focus on empire and fleets in x games, it wasnt how it was advertized when xbtf came out and it seems just because a few people do it on the forums that ego seem to expand that or well put more resources in it which I find a shame. Xbtf was billed as a adventure in space and while u could build stations and own other ships it was mainly imo to help you get enough income to get u kitted out and finish the plot.

If you wana build empires theres other games like rome tw, civ4 etc, gal civ2. If it was my way id keep x games mainly for their mysterious atmosphere and struggling to survive in a new universe cut off from home and build a life, not a empire just a normal space job doing this and that for people.

I think barren landable bodies which u can interact would be cool, manual mining with tools, not lazers or prebuilt fabs, discovering resources, getting them refining them all urself without stations would be good in x as u could be a prospector as a job. Then trying to flog ur wares to guilds or something, not just go to a station press a button and u sold it, but finding a buyer and negotiating the price and setting up things like transport costs, insurance of goods etc.

Anyhow i ramble on so ill just say, ideas arnt ever fixed to one game or another, they can be used by anyone its not like egosoft are unique in that many things.

Sounds suspiciously like Space Engineers

Although back on topic, I'd like them to take baby steps towards something like this. (IE get that giant *ss rock in Aldrin mine able! the FE Corporation must expand!). Most games just jump on top of planets wind up with completely lifeless and barren that aren't worth it to actually take time and look around.

It should really be planetary exploitation, rather than exploration.

Gas giants tend to be most Hydrogen and Helium, rocky moons for ores and minerals as well as ice.

Populated planets don't really need anything from space and moving stuff up through the gravity well is expensive.

You play X games for the story Confused I can't relate to that at all I'm afraid, the last thing I think about in an X game is settling into the campaign and following a story.

Have you seen the early access game Empyrion, that is a survival game in space with planet landing and mining. I like the concept and own the game (not played it yet) I could well see some cross over into X but honestly imho X's greatest strength over all other space sims is the ability to empire build. Now with X4 it finally looks as if we will see that gameplay properly supported with some strategy too... very happy about that.

Elite as we all know has planet landing (which I love btw), but what a lot of people don't tell you is it gets pretty boring after a while because just like Egosoft did with XR station interiors Frontier haven't properly integrated planets into the gameplay as yet. For me personally I'd rather see Egosoft uplift the station gameplay experience a hundred fold before even considering planet landing..... and that comes from a player who really likes planet landing I just wouldn't want it to be another baseless feature expansion.

I play all games for story, getting harder to find with MP only titles or cheap and short campaigns like SW bf2 which is said to be 6 hours long Sad

I wish X games had a story like freespace 2 or starlancer. Xbtf had a interesting story to follow and x2 to a degree. Couldn't play x3 games as no cockpits and couldn't stand the way u flew ships in that and they used docking arms instead of a docking like xbtf or x2

Getting off topic now tho.
