Greetings, fellow spacefarers!

We know a lot of you have been clamouring for another developer stream for our next game, X4: Foundations, for some time now. Since we came back from our Christmas and New Year holidays, we've been working very hard on further development of the project, so haven't yet found time to put together another X4 stream. While we've so far really enjoyed our streaming experience, we want to make sure that our streams aren't bogged down in small technical details that not everyone can appreciate, but instead are interesting and exciting.

So one of our developers, Owen "Xenon_Slayer" Lake, had an idea.

Because we still want to stream and have some interaction with you, but we don't have anything new and shiny to show for X4 just yet, he thought, "Why not just sit back, relax with Twitch Chat and play X3: Albion Prelude for a little while?" We really liked this idea, so we decided to make it happen!

With that in mind, you're invited to join Owen and Lorraine "Lothari" Wilson, for a live stream of X3: Albion Prelude on Friday the 16th March at 19:00 CET. Not just invited to watch though - they would like you to direct them. Being the... experts? that they are, simply playing the game would be too easy! They would like you to give us an interesting challenge that they can try to fulfil in a two- to three-hour window. You can post your suggestions as replies to this post - they'll annouce what they're going to try at the start of the stream.

Hope to see you there!
Egosoft Team

Appreciated, it's a great idea to break the wait until the release of X4

Would have liked to maybe see a stream of each X game played from a Dev and talk about the progression between em, what worked and didn't between each next game etc.

So would have liked a xbtf one first. But. It's something to watch, I'm sure it will be interesting.

Well, it's only the first stream. Nothing stopping us going back and doing the older games. Of course, not many of us can give a dev commentary about X-BtF, bit before my time at least.

Can we ask questions about the X4 in the stream ?

Sure, you can ask but I can't say we'll give much more info than what is already out there. We'll probably collect some of the unanswered X4 questions for the next X4 QA stream.

Every dev ever: "don't want to bother you with technical stuff"
me: Please please! Bother me with the technical stuff <.<

Like "Skeeter" said a look into the past, comparing design choices between the games would be quite a nice thing to watch.

A cool challange idea i think could be to mod a ship so its speed is ludocrusly fast, something u can see in front of you a little bit. Make it so it can cross a sector in about 1 minute without seta on. And take the fans on a tour of the universe so people can enjoy all the nice backgrounds, the different music, different races and stations by flying past em quickly. See if you cant wiz around the whole x map within ur allotted time. Maybe if going too quick u can take time to do other requested things. No jump drive tho.

What do you think?
