Given how good the Split Vendetta soundtrack is, I hope for some great tracks in reveal trailer for DLC2.

Good news and good timing. Nice to see an indie studio pumping out content on a regular basis putting some AAA types to shame. Oh, and when is the refresh for XR again??? :mrgreen:

After the game itself is in good shape today, I'm looking forward not only to the DLC but also to the things they will pack to the update that will for sure come along. With that we will already get some impressions. And, for sure, if Release of the DLC is in Q1 the first Betas for the 3.5 or 4.0 will be be "soon".
What I'm really, really curious about is, if egosoft is going to continue working on X4 for some years with DLC after DLC (what I think would be great), or if they'll go after the second DLC in the direction of a "X5". I hope for the first. After the game is now something like "stable" it would be so cool to work on the base game for some more years and expand the universe with more and more things by adding DLCs. (IMHO)

I do hope it's more factions than just the ATF?

I think we need allot more Factions in the game to spice things up, something has to break Paranid dominance of every playthrough.

Great to see E**** making a comeback, but i'm hoping it's allot more than just new factions, ships, sectors, we have plenty of the 3.
We need diplomacy to continuously keep shifting so what was calm space on the border becomes chaotic a day later and vice versa.
I love the randomness in X4, but in the end it's generally the same pattern, Xenon are quiet, then they steamroll the Split and the Teladi, the Paranid end up capturing 1 third of Xenon space.
Played the game now for nearly more hours than X:Rebirth and it's getting predictable how factions progress if you just sit back and watch them go at it.
Interesting to see how the T****** change the dynamic of the current set up like what we have seen in Split Vendetta, but even that will get predictable after another 40 hours of gameplay.
We need something that will change that and keep us guessing, a better diplomacy will help in that.

I also hope there are new features I haven't thought of, that will amaze!
You've got my money for this new DLC regardless.

What if you want to build and trade, and not fight? Chaos looks bad in the ledger. Are there "borders"? Granted, deep space strikes are hampered by logistics, but not unheard of.


There are two "diplomacy": what NPC does to NPC and what player can do.

The former can't be just RNG or clock. ("Whose side is Jack on?" "At the moment?" or "It is High Noon. Time to die. I'll love you again in 2 hours and 16 minutes.") It can't be an optimal strategy either: "Gentlemen, the pesky player is our common enemy. Lets coordinate our attacks."

The latter is Captain Jack's habit to sow ideas (that benefit himself). Would be nice to be able to whisper to Almighty RNG: Ceterum autem censeo Paranidae esse delendam?


Split say: DLC will be awesome. More things to shoot at! :split:

Which is what this would help and like any real life market, changes happen that effect it. They adapt or they go bankrupt?
Just as weapons development firms push for war in governments through lobbying, a shrewd businessman in X Games can try and orchestrate "Pearl Harbour moments" that bring factions to war and thus make corporations a ton of money in arms sales all round.

I agree, this shouldn't be a drunken spat, hate you one moment and then love you a few hours later, peace should be a LONG and COSTLY road to achieve if you want it?
X games are purely war based economies (Which personally I wish they weren't) As I too want a build/trade playthrough rather than war at times.

Split will always go full Klingon.
