So, because I'm becoming more and more obsessed with X4 each day that passes, I've started watching the various videos that have been released and trying to extract every bit of information that I can. Of course the most interesting thing at this point is, what ships will be in the game? Some are called out, and others only appear on the map details.

So, here is the list of ships that I noticed. I've also tried to collect the Faction, Size, and "Class" of the ships ... some of this can be guessed at, but I'd like to stick to what can be confirmed.


    Faction - Size - Class - Name
    Argon - M - ? - Cerberus
    Argon - XL - ? - Colossus
    Argon - S - ? - Discoverer
    Argon - L? - Freighter - Magnetar
    Argon - XL - ? - Mammoth
    Argon - L? - Trader - Mercury
    Argon - M - ? - Minotaur
    Argon - S - Fighter - Nova
    Paranid - ? - Trader - Demeter
    Teladi - S - Fighter - Falcon
    Teladi - S - Fighter - Kestrel
    Teladi - ? - Mining - Manorina
    Teladi - M - Fighter - Osprey
    Teladi - ? - Freighter - Pelican
    Teladi - M - Bomber? - Peregrine
    Teladi - M - Trader - Vulture
    Xenon - S - Fighter - N
    ??? - X - Destroyer - Behemoth
    ??? - ??? - Mining - Drill
    ??? - S? - Fighter - Gorgon
    ??? - ??? - Mining - Sunder
    ??? - ??? - Mining - Veles


Let me know if I missed any, or got anything wrong.

I think Behemot was mentioned as XL destroyer. Not 100% sure.

Okay thanks. I updated with this possibility.

Not a bad start for a person like me who is hoping to see at least 60 ships for each race and something like 300 clusters in terms of size of the galaxy

All speculation threads should be pinned for all to view Wink

Nice list I had no idea they had shown so many ships already. I really need to re watch the streams!

I'm still hopeful we're going to get a stream detailing the ships.

I've made a few updates and added several more ships shown in the videos (if only on the map). I don't want to spam with every single update though.

I've also added a page to my old game blog. I also hope to capture some images from the videos and link them there.

http://jaspersshadow.blogspot.com/p/x4-foundations-ships.html

Since most of these ships are found on the map, I'm trying to identify the symbols that might give a better understanding of the size and class. The little arrows are Small ships, the Arrow with a line are Medium? Then L and XL have special symbols I think... I've seen several Squares with one or two lines. But I don't know if that is L and XL Freighters or could mean more than that.

Small symbol without a line: S size
Small symbol with a line: M size
Small symbol with two lines: L size
Special looking big symbol: XL size

In the symbol is also the "category" encoded.
Triangle: Fighter
Square: Trader
Trapez (?): Miner

No, the English name is trapezium (or apparently trapezoid in US English).

After Lino's comment, then it appears the Colossus is an XL "fighter" as in the 2nd Q&A video around 34 minutes (https://youtu.be/Hk4pPuC3GjA?t=34m6s) it is clearly shown as a very large triangle. There doesn't seem to be a clear distinction between if it's a 'destroyer' or 'carrier' type (or something else) though.

There are a few others noticeable from that video too so you can update your list with:

Colossus = XL fighter (large unique icon with a triangular shape - destroyer/carrier)
Behemoth = L fighter (small triangle with 2 lines below it)
Cerberus = M fighter (small triangle with 1 line below it)
Minotaur = M fighter (small triangle with 1 line below it)

I also noticed that when attacked, the HAT ships (enemy) had quite a few showing "Docked ships" as "HAT Defence drone" so that's something cool Smile

Some examples of the square 'trader' types, M and L sizes, can be seen in icons around 10:52 in that same vid, but they have no names showing (there's just one tiny brief mouse-over of a TEL Food Trader Vulture (M size) at 11:01).

Cool. I made updates above, and will be rewatching to see if there is more to find.

One thing that is sort of annoying (already complaining...) is that the names of ships tend to be the LAST part of the full qualified name. So when ships are listed in the area it is something like this: "TEL Intermediate Goods Trader P...", so the (IMO) most important part of the name is cut off. :-/

I know this has been discussed before, but can we please have some form of additional textual classification for the sector list? It doesn't have to follow X3's M1-M8 style, but something to the effect.

Having to decipher a jumble of icons on the map while searching for what it represents in the listing feels like a step back from what was a clear, at-a-glance way of assessing ships and threats in a sector.
