Screenshot of the Day

Post by CBJ » Wed, 12. Sep 18, 00:44

Intro

OK, not daily but frequent! :)

As is old tradition around a release of a new X game, screenshots are a nice way to share some info as to what the game contains, even though his time around there are already many videos with footage and sound that show the game. The idea is to upload a screenshot regularly up to the release of X4 Foundations. We will add the screenshot here and also mention them as replies so that people get notifications if interested.

You are free to speculate and discuss the screenshots, but don't expect concrete answers. Even there might be some, its not a given.

Hah, I bet I could get a concrete answer! How about... is that a ship in X4? :P

Kidding aside, this is an awesome thing to see! Something to look forward to every day or so.

Ah cool, nice to see this returning.

As someone said above, it would be nice to show some new stuff and not stuff we have all seen a few times before from past videos or other screenshots, if possible. Ty.

Thanks CBJ and team, all images released so far look amazing :)

Would love to see some more close-ups to show off the more intricate details!

Cheers

Actually, coming back to this, a ship this size would usually land to trade, right? Those look like some kind of docking arms though for small ships... is this a small ship construction/repair bay on a station!?

It's hard to grasp the size of that freighter in screenshot.

The one thing I liked in X-Rebirth was using large ships as freighters.
I hated that in X3 even biggest freighters (I don't count TL class) were only slightly bigger that the corvette.

I hope that X4 will keep X-Rebirth trade dominance by huge freighters.

No, it's an external trade bay similar to Rebirth's trade approach.

Materials and textures look like they are brand new out of the packaging...
A bit odd to me, but nice to see some activities !

Maybe the post processing was not fully activated on this screenshot ?

Now we know why the Boron are all gone. Their shopping carts are designed to be used underwater, so they don't have wheels. Thus, they have no idea what that symbol means. After every other species started to reliably reach the docks before the Boron could even locate them, economic collapse was inevitable. :P

(The Paranid were confused by the absence of a third wheel, but they eventually got the idea.)
