I would hope for a combined boron/split DLC, as the Split are the old main nemesis of the Boron, but we shall see.

since they dont need to make split people and only ships and modules split is logical, but boron not so much for the first DLC

A functioning economy might be a good start before any dlc.

Or a Split DLC, with the Boron launching a Pearl Harbour esque assault on their sector as their introduction at the end of a mission chain!

That's me btw (surprise surprise).

Was really happy after seeing this kind of reply as Split had my favorite designs...I kinda hope they don't mess it up too hard. Split just remind me of "Brutalism". It has its' own charme but most thinking beings would probably just think "yuck"

Shehriazad i'll do my best to keep the X3 split feel the same. Hard, sharp triangular shapes.

All ship designs needs a HUGE overhaul, because now they're all the same.

Argon was always "medium" in all things, best at nothing and avarage cargo, dependably combatships.
Split were always poor shielding, weak anti-fighter, but alot of big guns and poor cargo, fast ships.
Paranid is a warrior race mostly, but desent shielding, alot of weapons but poor carriers and avarage cargo.
Teladi are traders, strong shielding to protect their cargo, HUGE ships to hold more cargo.. more profitzz.. semi-desent anti fighter, superior cargospace.

Xenon are just... guns guns guns and weaponsgenerator that rivals any sun's energyoutput, strong shields but weak hull.
Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

Add fast, nimble and utterly insane to that formula. Else it won't add up. ;)

A bit difficult to not make them then completely overpowered. Curretnly i expect them to be the "to go" race ships, because of the weapon amount.

If the formula is right, they'll be my to-go fighter-ships anyway. They always were. But your wording of "to go race ships" now has me all curious about player ships. :D

If Pulsar has 6 weapon mounts the I assume Split will have 8 or 10 on theirs.
Paranid and Teladi fighters with their 3 weapons mounts looks kinda lame.

Maximum number of weapons is 8. This is a UI limit.
