Has anybody noticed a glaring omission. The Split

Post by ZaphodBeeblebrox » Mon, 18. Dec 17, 16:26

Well, I know the Ego guys want to keep some surprises back, but there has been nothing shown so far of the split.

We haven't seen that much so far, except the Teladi ships and stations, along with the Argon Nova and Discoverer.

I was wondering if the Split will be fully realised in this version.

Im so going to pilot a Raptor anyway ! I hope they rework the split character design as they looked like japan samurai warlords in X Rebirth. And include females.

I think the trouble is they might be as in Rebirth where they have a small presence, maybe with a couple of ships, but not the full compliment that Argon/Teladi/Paranid will get. I think otherwise we'd have probably spotted some glimpse of them already.

Obviously, I could be wrong, and they could just be too early in development to show yet, but I'm not holding by breath.

You know, it'd be interesting if we had a couple new races introduced. No reason the ancient portals can't be connected to other, isolated species.

I don't remember seeing the split confirmed anywhere, and they certainly arnt in the streams. Maybe the art isnt done.
Irrational factors are clearly at work.

The latest stream confirmed that you play as a Split in one of the game starts.

There has been no word at all about split ships, stations or sectors.

"We have different game starts that put the player in a different situation with a different backstory and all of those characters that the player then experiences are different. I think, at the moment, one is a Teladi, one is a Paranid and one is a Split and the other two are Argon."

Cheers, thanks. Seems that i have missed that bit.

EDIT: Asked what the split business is about.
We are probably going to have some split characters in the game. However, there is no Split station-/ship- and weapon set planned for release.

Whaaaat? ;____; Why?
I always loved split ships as they fit perfectly in the role of the more agile and faster ships with a little less firepower.

Are they planned for an expansion/add-on/update at least?

Just not enough manpower to create them in time, sorry.
Personally i think getting those in at a later stage after we finished the base game is maybe (!) possible. (doesnt mean that this is going to happen, it is just my opinion)
I would love to add the missing races with all their ships and staions/economies into the game. boron love.

I completely understand the boron argument, but having a X without split ships is gonna be a bit ... odd. ^^

Well, i hope they'll be added eventually. :3

and whats the main difference

Code: Select all

 a difference of Height for the player character Camera 
Lets see how it will be meddled inside the given " galaxy " if their loss will be mourned inside "storyarc" as for X:R it was. regardless of optimal or not, solved. If Lino can stop to redo argon ships for each game release there will be time for the otherraces :P
