Great news if this update 4.0 is only a (at most) a four month wait. Excited to try a Terran gamestart, I always loved the Terran ships. :D

I hope 4.0 will bring fixes and additions to the subordinate ai and combat ai in general. otherwise i wont be bothered buying the dlc
In one of their last stream (maybe the one where Bernd has spoiled the content of this DLC), the devteam told us that they where working on the subbordinate behaviors and path-finding.
They also told that they wanted to want for the new major update (the 4.0 then) to have the time to make the best on these features.

Otherwise, any idea on the new returning pirate faction?
I think I would bet on the Yaki. And I would also go as far as to say that screenshot 5 from Steam is not Terran, for some reason it seems to look a bit different from the other small ships depicted in the other screenshots

You mean this screenshot ?
Yes it looks like X3's Yaki M5.

Dead air gate mod increases number of sectors in the significantly and i really like the mod for that.

BUT soon as the game matures you are down to single digit fps and you struggle on tilll fps comes down to like 1.

I used to blame the default game x4 for this , till i tried a lengthy game without deadair gate mod.
And the difference is night and day, mature game and fps still good with smooth game.

So the question then is, what has egosoft done to ensure adding many new sectors to the game wont be fps destruction, like it is with deadair gate.

Ooh a vertical ship, very cool. Im guessing Yaki? Terraforming gameplay? Xenon take over sectors and do something to the planet im guessing (or perhaps something much more dramatic has happened to Sol :p ). Looking forward to more info and screens.

Also, these Terrans might be from an alternate dimension guys, because of HQ plot, could be very different than the terrans from ours. Excited to find out.

I just hope its a real new feature and not a filler like a simply new ressource type or new civilian ship associated with AI missions on a waypoint (like building station).

i'd like something that can empower a bit the lategame ability of triggering galactic-wise changes/actions

edit : Or atleast someone that bring a lot of depth to lore and capable to justify the presence of planets in sector background aswell as the importance factions are giving to space control. I dont know how to represent this efficiently but that could give bonuses to a faction in terms of income or productions, and moreover i would like it to give a totally new sense to the "Expension" feeling.
No more metallic chess-board for empty space and few asteroids. A real "space-expension" program/race with territories to fight and live for

Wait... something happened to Sol? other than the Torus getting it... I didn't think anything happened in Sol... Mind you... I haven't even tried playing X4 in over a year...

OK, analysis time:

- USC confirmed, no trace of ATF.

- Mobile Minning Ship? or Terran Auxilary ship?
https://www.egosoft.com/news/images/new ... 25_214.png
https://www.egosoft.com/news/images/new ... 25_215.png

- USC fighters in the background? Look at the cokpit, visibly distinct from fighters we see on steam page:
https://www.egosoft.com/news/images/new ... 25_214.png

- Earth is fine, Torus is not Rebuild nor clean-ed up, some significant construction on Sinai & Africa:
https://www.egosoft.com/news/images/new ... 25_214.png

- Terran theme docking pads (too much white for my taste):
https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/a ... 1598515434

- Either this is generic Terran asteroid base, or a hint that you can relocate player HQ:
https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/a ... 1598515434

- Asymetrick Terran fighter? Or is this the same fighter from Mining Ship conceptart, just with asymetrick wings?
https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/a ... 1598515434

- Mars is still not Terraformed...fine I'll do it myself, also notice the "habitat area" inside station rigns - it might be that rings are actually habitat modules as you see large and small ring:
https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/a ... 1598515434

- Aqueduct in Sol?
https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/a ... 1598515434

- This really doesn't look like human ship - Yaki fighter (notice the tiny oval logo to the right of cokpit)?
https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/a ... 1598515434

- This is even more confusing - looks like Yaki/Terran fighter hybrid - maybe second faction will not be ATF, but some kind of pro-Alien Terran faction? ALso look at the span of the wings for that fighter! OR maybe this is Terran drone as it's too flat for cokpit:
