Holy moly, what a great list of stuff.... I am also VERY surprised and very happy that the kha'ak are getting some attention. Not surprised that we're getting new effects (vfx hires iirc), but very welcomed too.
All the new ships are awesome.
Can the bloom be reduced on the UI elements specifically? That would be my only concern. Edit: Nevermind there is an option for it.

Thank you for having NPC pilots bail out!!

Losing a good pilot was my only reason for occasional reloads.

Can't wait to see it in action.
Is there a way for us to recover pilots and crew that have bailed out, and put them back as crew on a new ship?

Кислотно светящие цвета шрифта и обводки предметов, значок кораблей тоже кислотного цвета как и радара!!! Как вернуть старые цвета без режущих кислотных эффектов? Все переискал = не нашел!!! Смотришь не на красоту игры, а на кислоту выжигающую глаза!!! Так же много слало размыто это портит зрения многих людей кто носит очки!!!

Favorites...

* Added icons to Data Vaults to indicate unlock progress. (I've got some nav sats to collect)
* Added skip buttons to sliders in menus to immediately set them to their limit.
* Added ticker history to Logbook. (Assuming this will let me see who has gotten attacked by pirates and in what sector!)
* Added option to mark Build Storages as hostile. (So I don't have to teleport in to blow up the stored Xenon wares!)
* Changed placement of station target elements to be in visual center of stations.
* Changed faction colours to be more distinct. (So no longer blue Antigone, blue Boron, and blue Argon? Thank goodness.)
* Improved balancing of stellar output across all systems to match stars and locations. (Sounds great, though I fear what may await me.)
* Improved behaviour of collisions between capital and S/M sized ships.
* Improved tolerance of turret friendly fire between player and non-player factions. (Thank the Maker!!)
* Improved friendly fire handling between non-player factions.
* Improved flee behavior of S or M ships under attack by capital ships or stations.
* Improved Flee order, particularly when fleeing from ships attacking head-on.
* Improved.... (*MANY things having to do with movement!*)
* Improved response to being boarded. (Bye bye fly by?)
* Improved order to deploy satellites to show radar range of satellite before deployment.
* Fixed ships attacking targets that are being boarded by non-hostile faction. (Borons are going to stop blowing up the pirates I'm boarding?)
* Fixed unprotected player-owned miners mining in sectors with hazardous regions if no other regions with resources are found within range.
* Fixed player-owned ships worrying that player will be stranded when player is on their own ship.
* Fixed capital ships sometimes reacting too strongly to collisions.

* Added means to rescue people who are stranded in space suits, with options for player to request rescue.
* Added crew bailing out of player-owned ships that are destroyed.

So, yep.

Oh Xenon Pe and Se ouverhaul makes me happy , i killed thousands of them and it start bit borring that their shape.. And that new explosions holy s*it .
Colosus redesign is efing cool aswell i love angled arms little bit down .

This is perfect example when Developers make game so good you dont need mods anymore ( though they got inspired by mods).

Egosoft what a ride since 3.0 split vendeta when game was crushing due memory leak and many bugs and now X4 feels like 718 porsche boxter Everything is precise steering design sound details really thank you for that German precision.

It's a bit sad no new Large Turret model as well.

Yeas but even alpha tends to mean feature complete (aka only fixes beyond that until release).
What is not known how much of these minor things the dlc adds.

I can answer that. No, there will not be E variants of any more ships in 7.00, other than those that are already in the Public Beta.

And just to remind you why, a new capital ship takes around 6-8 weeks to build. I cant just add them quickly, they are planned for a long time just because they take so long to be built.

Any summary how are new Argon and Teladi E ships re-balanced in general?

Comparing to old ships and possibly comparing to Paranid E ships?

In each case it's basically a better looking ship with some minor stat improvements. But the most important one - the combat power - sadly stays the same. So no new turrets despite the larger chassis. But we do got the usual nerf in term of ship capacity

I guess more hull and more storage on Collossus is welcome addition.

Really exciting stuff, it got better and better as I was reading through it.
We are spoiled aren't we, congratulations to all of you at Egosoft !

As a suggestion for cheap graphical enhancement, I would love to see actual higher resolutions skyboxes ( perhaps an option to toggle on/off ? ).
It's literally one of the first mods I made sure to get installed, I really can't play without it now.
Seeing streamers playing without it ( Captain Collins for example ) it boggles my mind a little bit.

As I said it's really a cheap thing as opposed to your magnificient new VFX, but adds so much depth to the universe, no pun intended. It looks less fake at least. :gruebel:

I didn't seen it in change log list, but they finally brought smart turrets with targetting priority.

Oh and Xenon Terraformer H get two new weapons:
- Xenon version of Large Flak
- Xenon version of (boron) medium ion pulse turret

Here you can see them in action, look on the timestamps of the video, you csn find the equipment stats in the last 1/3 of the video.
