    What things were broken in XR for you, Sp4m?

    Things found wonky in XR could be ironed out for X4. Possibly even XR too as there's a beta open for feedback at the moment.
    Now I have a T2 gun. Ho, ho, ho.

    The trade system, you could start a game, play for about 3 hours and then the whole galaxy was empty of resources :/ even with gas/liquid and mass extractors ect...

    also URV's. system was completely fucked, you build this random customer URV factory, and for whatever reason (Don't ask me why I still haven't figured it out) all the ships need URV's, they are like cargo lifters and shit to transfer goods between station and ship, and NOBODY HAS FUCKING ANY OF THEM they are COMPLETELY DEPLETED within about 3 hours of the game and your manufactoring capacity CANNOT KEEP UP

    its shit, broken, and it fucks me off tbh, as the game could have been at least playable, let alone great.

    After rage deleting the game when I first played, I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt when they released Teladi Outpost and drove myself through a proper play through. It was actually going ok until all the URVs broke and my ships refused to move because they were waiting for non-existent URVs to dock.

    Bugs and weird design decisions aside, the one thing that always irritated me the most was the interior textures of the skunk. If you're going to force a single ship on the players, at least make it look vaguely inviting. This was released at around the same time as Elite Dangermouse, and yet those textures looked like something from 10 years earlier.

    Ah yeah, the economy. Might relate to the low NPC production rates of Fusion Reactors and Reinforced Metal Plating. Initial surplesses tend to dry up by the time the player considers building stations for making those, and those items are needed to build stations... Piracy against the PMC tends to be my work-around for that. Although this might not be your issue.

    Yes, but a space PR agency renamed them to things like the Spice Plantation. On the bright side, the cops don't shoot the stations.

    The Q&A thread has been updated with more of them from the 2nd Livestream.

    There's a focus on station construction/gameplay and the galaxy layout but various other bits and bobs were discussed.

    The new entries are easy to spot below a line with the date of 3rd October.

    Screw that other 'X' noise.



    Looks much better than that other unfinished one. Would pay money for this as long as its not broken strait out of the box (unlikely).

    Nov 30th.

    Well that X4 trailer certainly seems like a step in the right direction...

    This looks promising.
    Special player HQ sounds like shit, it always felt forced and unbalanced in previous games but hey, hardly a new issue.

    More sensibly they look like they've learned a fair bit from X:Afterbirth, so that's good.
    Also, Teladianianianianianium and Paranid confirmed to be in the first release.

    Not a hard lesson to learn - basically forget Afterbirth ever existed and remake X3 with all the bits in the suggestions thread. Saw flashes of those dumb hyperlanes at the end of the vid though, so clearly they're keeping some of newer mechanics. X will always be a slightly clunky and simplistic space game, but as long as they stick to what they're good at and avoid the temptation to be edgy and different (remember the on rails shooter mission in X2?), it should be just be fine.

    I'll wait a couple weeks, see where it's at. Elite Dangerous has to really impress me to get me back with their latest shit patches. This would be so fun to have if done right.

    Still haven't gone back to Rebirth.

    This is confirmed released on Friday, the minimum system specs are pretty beefy and I am now thinking my rig wont cut it. Apart from this statement Egosoft have not released anything at all since the trailer at the start of the month.

    - Intel i5-4590 3.3GHz or AMD equivalent, 8 GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 780/970 or AMD equivalent (Vulkan support required), 12 GB available space.

    Running a i7-2700@4.9gz and 8gb of 2400gz RAM so it is going to be close, quess can just buy it on steam then refund it if it bricks.
