So now we're not talking about lack of presence of a single race but lack two races. Well... :// I was really hoping so see at least one of the most recognizable races of the X Universe you either love or hate.

Maybe 3? we have no idea for any Terran faction. So, i guess we won't have any terran station / ships.

Yes no Terrans, but only if you take X4 as direct continuation of X3 (which is not)...
Analysis of shown materials make me say - we're dealing with a product based more on XR than X3, both story wise and tech wise.

I Really wasnt expecting that answer Crying or Very sad Well that makes the endgame/dynamic universe quite a lot less interesting (I like the Paranid and Teladi and dont really feel like trying to destroy them).

This is why the Boron and Split are so important, people seem to either love them or hate them, that is a sign of good design. I'de argue they are both the most important races of all for players because of this reason.

Lets see how many 'enemy' races we get. I fully expect Xenon, but we're yet to see if we get Kha'ak.
I was also wondering the other day if the Goner are going to make a return.

I was hoping that time wouldn't be too much of a factor this time and they could release upon reaching a desirable stage of development. Hearing that even main factions aren't included duo to time related reasons makes me a bit sad. Rather push it for another year and do it right.

Please? <3

Time is a factor but budget is higher on the list, I'm sure if they had more funds it would extend Dev time to do more. Fact of life unfortunately.

They didn't earn bad with Rebith i imagine. Rebirth seemed to have alot more international attention + steam + a ton of preorders. By the time ppl started to get mad about the state of the game alot money must've been made already. :^)

XR with all DLCs only has 3 fully developed (functioning) factions and all were Argon and 2 of them were identical in ship and station design.

- The split had 1 cheese wedge of a station, 1 weak destroyer and 1-2 fighters
- The Teladi had a few but not as detailed as the Argon's
- The Canterans had like 4 station variants but atleast unique ships
- Terracorp was a copy paste of Albion with a different layout
- Kha'ak and Xenon had their usual token stations and their ships
- All pirates flew the same ships.
- Albion and Omicron were the only 2 fully unique entities.

Honestly if we get 3 fully functioning races (Argon, Teladi, Paranid) with unique systems/wares then we would get more than XR with all it's DLCs combined.

I don't really mind. Since XR's production/ware system is already a lot more complicated than the previous titles. I can barely recognize the OL stations and ships from their name and what they do after quite a lot of playtime. So 3 for me would be plenty to play around with.

Fair point.

I think it would be better idea for them to have single big DLC (similar to AP or even TC) for 30$ than small DLC like what they did with XR. All though it cant be helped with Boran and Split now I'm just sad about ships. Stations pretty much build same wares so I don't personally care if they have Split designs.

Not paying 30 for just 2 races, maybe 14.99 but that's 2 races and missions for em.

Yeah, the Split need some serious love.
Apart from a Split Viper Destroyer, 2 fighter classes in Maelstrom and TWO NPC clothes, they are beyond bare bones, I hope X4 changes all that, gives them a ton of new faces, female Split, ships and station modules.
Plus differences in appearance and culture to show the many different Split Clans.

Early access to avoid terrible launch state and for developing the base game with the suggestions of the community

Patches to fix bugs and issues with the game

Major patches to bring new features and improvements

MANY DLC s to expand the universe, more variety: more races more game starts, more ships more stations and new solar systems
