"Legal-good path"? Yeah, like the "Mass Chaos" missions? Kill a crapton of innocent people for 10-20 (or more) million credits. Reprecussions? Meh, station will be cross with you for a bit. I still don't understand what Ego was thinking when making those.

I'd like to be able to pick up ejected pilots, but also be given more options as to what to do with them.

In addition to being able to sell them into slavery, you should be able to do things like return them to one of their faction's stations to earn reputation with said faction. Alternatively, give them to an enemy faction for a reciprocal effect.

Indeed, the Xenon don't even need to eat or have living quarters, unlike slaves.

Sex slaves? I don't think Xenon would be very cost effective in that field.

They eat one meal a day (lees food consumption) and increased productivity (we don't have to worry about their safety and their lives depend on their work) Twisted Evil To balance this it should be illegal and we should be able to do it only in hidden or pirate sectors....

Hmm,, gives me some ideas.Hard to make credits,or some other reason to hurt another faction?.Become a pirate. Stalk> a npc passenger transport,or prison ship.Force npc piliot to bail, if it wont?it will eject workfoce, or slaves, or marines.I gobble them up Twisted Evil I can (1) Sell them for profit to a pirate base,or to race faction HQ base.which strengthing the oppsite client:(2) Keep them for myself, as future marine traing recruits.(3) Use them for my factory workforce.Oppertunity + instinct =profit. ferengi rules of acquisition #9, Surprised ,.Bye all.

Better still, they should allow NPCs to enslave you. Rather than dying when you ship gets destroyed, you should automatically eject and get captured. Egosoft should then gain complete access to your computer, which they can use as they see fit for the rest of time.

You are, of course, free to buy a new one.

While unfortunately this thread is filled with unfunny jokes, OP raises a pretty solid point.

Why is that? Because unlike the times when X3 was released, now everything will be interpreted as a political agenda.

With all the BLM and other SJW subjects about slavery going on on Twitter, including slavery as a business in a game now can be risky, especially for a semi-big gaming dev like Egosoft.

Imagine you are playing X4, you happen to make a pirate eject, you decided to enslave him and that pirate happens to be a black man. I can't even imagine the shitstorm that will ensue if one of the SJ warriors stumble upon this.

That being said, Egosoft should do like what devs did in Kenshi, make it not available "officially" but make it accessible through mods.
