I must say I really like new plasma sound and look - feels much more like old HEPT.
3.0 weapon sounds much better in general.

Yeah, I agree. Although they're at times almost overwhelming. Which is not necessarily a bad thing: battles do sound more hectic and... busy, for lack of a better word.

My only quibble with the sounds in 3.0 is that L engine sounds are a little overbearing. I flew past the HOP fleet in True Sight and had to turn down my speakers for a moment.

I love the sounds themselves, and the fact you can hear them from further away! Just maybe a little loud.

Added cursor movement, selection and delete features to text edit boxes.
I shed a tear. I've only been waiting for this feature since :xbtf:

LLLLLLLOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEE the new engine sounds!

Could you add an toggle option to prioritize “option select” over “emulate left mouse”? This is killing me in the map using a H.O.T.A.S.

Just wanted to chip in and say the new visuals are great. The explosions are awesome :> a little bit of polish and it almost feels like a different game.
EDIT: and the audio is magnificent. significantly improved :)

I was in "split" mind about getting the expansion but I'll be getting it for sure now with the latest added features. my biggest gripe was the lack of crew transfer. but the ui cleanup and organising is great.

As with every X game, it's getting better and better over time! It just needs it's polish and cleaning.

I think most people that played X Rebirth after 2.5 or so would say it improved more than just about any other game. 4.3 is like a different game.

True. I played X-Rebirth 1.0 for like 4 hours and quit with rage.
Then I got back with 2.5 and had 12 hour marathon playing overnight to 5 AM :)
Current X-Rebirth is a decent and fun game if you don't mind flying single ship and bad squad/ship command GUI.

I actually find XR’s squad control better in a crucial way than X4’s: you can give wingman/squad commands with two clicks from the cockpit! Just click on enemy and select attack. X4 needs fast wingman commands. :(

yes, in the context menu of a ship, so you dont need to open the map for every little thing

the game need gamepad solutions
Fixed credits not being able to claim abandoned ships sometimes getting stuck when boarding operation sometimes getting some owner other than the player builds a station module or surface element.

That's the issue:
XR - good wingmang control, bad non-wingman control.
X4 - no wingman control (from cokpit), good non-wingman control.

I loaded the default warthog profile and it still shows Xbox controller mappings. For example, fire primary is button A. It’s totally weird.
