So Boron are 100% confirmed absent for x4, very upsetting Sad So I'de like to throw my idea for a Boron dlc out here on the forums.

I've said all this before but i'll recap, I think the Boron are essential to the political climate of X. The absence of a peaceful race, to me, makes the whole scene feel very incomplete, not to mention the variety that both the exotic styling and shield-heavy design their ships would bring to the game. So i'de like to see a branching-story Boron DLC.

It would be interesting if the DLC focused around some jumpgates opening to Boron space, perhaps their scientists manage to reactivate them and they send a team through - but when they arrive their first contact is with some Split military vessels... the player could recieve a general distress call from the Boron ships and be asked to investigate, then the player could be given the choice of helping the Boron, or assisting the Split vessels in taking them out - leading to either a story DLC about the Boron and their reintegration with the commonwealth races, or if they chose to help the Split, a military campaign to attack their systems.

Name suggestions for the DLC? 'X4: New Shores' or 'X4: Waves of Change'?

I think you are not the first to recommend a Boron DLC, but while the Boron will not make X4 release, I don't think it has been said that there will never be any Boron in the base X4 game as it updates and evolves.

From the previous 2 Twitch Streams' Q&A:

Q. Will the Boron return?
A. The Boron will most-likely not be part of X4 at release.

Q. Will there be Boron in any of DLCs ? If yes I would suggest to put them in mech suits. It wouldn't make sense to have to see them jumping around platform like fish without water?
A. Can we finish the game before we start thinking about what we're going to add in DLCs please?

Thanks for the links. Well I certainly wouldnt mind them being added to the base game as a 'free-lc' as you say. Just whatever gets us them added fastest, I have no issue paying for a decent dlc focused around the Boron, they are very important to me (even to the point I might not get the game at first, unless Im very impressed by what i see closer to release).

Would be nice if Boron would be there eventually but it doesn't make or break the game in my opinion. I would much prefer a game with working mechanics and no Boron over a game with Boron and half working mechanics.

Well, the Teladis aren't exactly the kind of pacifists you would expect but they don't really like doing profitlesss warss so they kinda fit to me Very Happy

Egosoft thought about adding Boron, but they decided they didn't want to water X4 down.

If i were Egosoft i would create an Image of external Ship view where you can See into the Cockpit. Then put a Boron NPC Model behind the window and fill the Cockpit with Water and Show ppl how hilarious that idea would Look Smile

Im not sure why a spaceship filled with water is any more 'hillarious' than a spaceship filled with air, but... in any case, egosoft can do what they want, lets just forget the whole water-in-the-ship (which in some lore is actually described as gas, i'de like to add) and put the Boron in grav suits if we cant overcome these 'hillarious' blockers, as has been suggested by many people.

There is the risk of this beeing not hilarious enough. I am totally in for flying fish bowls. If that's what's necessary to get my mollusk friends back, so be it.

I think it's already canon that the Boron have anti grav suits to wear for environments outside water.

Honestly? All I care about is that the Boron ships are still around, even if the race itself isn't. The Boron ships are generally pretty useless but still, I like how they look.

Thanks, for a moment I thought I was the only oldy that could have known of the glorious Bob the Killer. Now that's what all the boron pirate should look like. Epic battle Wink
