Re: What is next? Boron or Terran DLC?

Post by Skeeter » Fri, 3. Apr 20, 09:48

Maybe its time to introduce a new race for a change instead of a old one, might be more fun.

That or a proper campaign as the dlc next time instead of a race pack dlc?

Re: 2nd expansion content and 4.0?

We haven't made any announcements regarding future updates or the content of the second DLC, but I think it's safe to say that, as usual, we will continue updating the base game as well. However I'm not going to suggest that you wait for the "final final" update before you play the game. You might actually get more value from the game by playing it now with the content and features it has, and then getting a "second wind" to play some more when the next update and second DLC come out. :)

Yeah, we need terrans! And a khaaks improvement (with capital ships)
It won't be an huge work I suppose, and, yeah borons, I will like to see them but it's more ambitious.
How will be their bridges? Full of water? And borons swim inside? But what about you? Do you wear your suit?
And how do you change from a human to a boron captain? Will you fill the bridge of water or tell the boron to wear a space suit? :mrgreen:
I'd like to see, for example, a plot with ALI that open us to more sectors, where we discover terrans again.

Who knows? Did Egosoft ask for the community what we wanted?

As far as i know its still in the same state (Germany)
Well honestly this really depends on your point of view in my opinion. Like, for me the state of the game has definitely gone south, but I'm playing from Italy, you know.

I was kinda hoping on a new race, but it'd be strange for it not to be the Boron, considering there's one already in the game. - However, the introduction of walking around stations made it very hard for Egosoft to incorporate non-air breathers without them looking a little strange.

It'd be good to have the Khaak developed, and maybe a different insectoid race at war with them that becomes a (possible) ally.

I guess copyright means we can't have the Borg, LOL. I... I've always had a thing for Seven of Nine. :)
“Go on, let’s hear it then.”

“Well, if God’s having an existential crisis, what chance have us muggles got?” Ryan asked.

Theemol laughed, the tremors of terror that still echoed through her after recent events finally silenced. She pulled him towards her and kissed his forehead. “Patricia was a fool for leaving you, Ryan. You are one of the very best, and who could be better placed to say that than your God?”

Yeah, that's it. I agree.

Clearly needs Multiplayer DLC ;)
Dont get my hopes up lol...i wish i could invite a friend into my universe or join his.
haha, You never know it's always been something the devs wanted to do at one point. I think the idea was they wanted to do MP and then even MMO further down the road. Sadly I think their best to sticking close to X3/X4 games that being said I hope they do consider some day adding it as a feature over top.

Even some sort of very basic interactions would be fun it's kind of dumb but even remember some games having players show up as wisp's, etc in other games even though they were SP... Be kind of cool to see ghosts of others haha. Maybe just the player themselves

Not really following the conversation, just quoting this to savor a pun well made. :D

Do not forgot the Yaki and the Goners.
And Goners are mandatory as a real Kha'aks threat, to open a portail to Sol again.
Else we cannot have terrans.

Yaki turned into Beryll corporation and got stuck in Albion somewhere between X3:AP and XR. Yaki as we know are gone. We also already have plenty of Pirate factions that need some love (SCA, Duke Bucanners, Fallen Families, HAT).

Goners also don't make much sense - they were working as a religion about Earth - once Sol got reconnected its' no longer religion, but fact. Also with Argon-Terran war they could be trieated as spies/traitors.
I think that whatever left out of Goners propably joined ALI (charity and relief organization - kinda like something to fill the void after Goners gone - also ALI is in need of love too).

Goners could be remade into a sect worshiping the ancient ones perhaps and there the only ones u can talk to about that stuff?

No point of adding another minor faction when there is plenty of work left with ALI, HAT, SCA.

The developers have done a lot of work on the HAT, the story campaign is very cool.
If Egosoft continues to create such story campaigns, X4 will be like the Witcher 3 in space.
