    X series would be improved about a million times over if you could have smaller scale mp, like freelancer. It would be perfect for it, as long as the complexity is kept and the mp was optional.

    this is my biggest annoyance; ive litterally been playing these games since the first one, i remember when the first expansion pack for the first game game out (called imaginatively X-tension ; this was the birth of the x series as we know it, as XBTF was largely a single ship experience); after that came out all of us over at the Xforum as the time we begging for multiplayer, they always shy'd away from this telling us they would make a MMO. That never went anywhere, annoyingly multiplayer has been an ask for like 17 years and they have always said "nope". :-(

    I love the Xgames, but i stoped playing years ago. They basically havnt changed since Xtension (small features aside, and loosing cockpits)!
    Dont dam me when i speak a piece of mind; cause silence isnt golden when i am holding it inside.

    I honestly wouldn't trust them to make even semi-working net code without at least a decade of trial and error.

    Personally I would hire some net code experts rather than piss away money on a decade of trial and error.

    Meanwhile back in reality, this is Egosoft we're talking about.

    No electrical engine can get that kind of depends on the complexity of the class.

    Egosoft's next X4 livestream is scheduled for September 27, 20:00 CEST.

    Was QuackBot sent back in time to destroy humanity by the Xenon? Will we learn the Split eat all the Boron? Just how many pizzas have Egosoft eaten during production?

    These questions and more, will probably not be answered.
    Now I have a T2 gun. Ho, ho, ho.

    SHC '10 and proud.

    No one knows due to the 1st rule of the profit guild.

    If anyone is interested in some additional info about X4, Egosoft provided a lot of answers to questions relating to the 1st X4 livestream.

    They mention XR quite a lot in those answers. Presumably some of the same XR people are working on this, how these c**ts keep jobs is beyond me.

    This is probably because "the game engine used in X4 is based on the one used in Rebirth but with the Vulkan render". I.e. starting with the Rebirth engine (multi-core support, destructible surface elements, etc.) and incorporating more X3-like features (fly all ships, destructible and flexibly-designed station, etc.) into.

    X3 is legendary. X rebirth was... unexpectedly bad. I am amazed they ran with it.

    I sincerely hope the next title will be back on track. The developers strike me as a team borne of passion for their own titles.

    Does anybody else get the feeling that foundations sounds like origins?

    This thread made me re-install X-Rebirth to see if they had ironed out all the bugs and if it was playable but even with mods installed to remove the annoying repetative voice lines the game itself is still a buggy broken mess

    the graphics are nice tho, and the engine itself seems to work ok....

    so yeah, looking forward to this but it can't be worse than rebirth.
