X4 Foundations - Space Sim


#1

With the recent talk in PC Discord Channel. I figured I would push this thread with some links for those interested and for conversation about the upcoming game X4: Foundations releasing on November 30th, 2018.

“X4: FOUNDATIONS, the long awaited sequel in the successful X series, brings our most sophisticated universe SIMULATION ever. Fly every ship, EXPLORE space or manage an empire; TRADE, FIGHT, BUILD and THINK carefully, while you embark on an epic journey.”

So with the above links and videos, hopefully this sparks some conversations on the soon to be released Space Sim which is claiming to be the biggest and most complete space sim sandbox.

I personally discovered the X-Series back during X3: Reunion. It is a wonderful game with beautiful graphics and free form gameplay. If you require a story line…there using is a story that you can play through, but the true gem comes from the dynamics that allow you to make your own story.

95% getting it. Since I have FO76 and RDR2 to play right now I figured I can wait and read some reviews. It looks really interesting. I have been watching Obsidianant play it some.


#3

Cohh is playing now.


#4

I have interest in it.


#5

Just purchased 30 minutes ago. Will be playing for sure.


#6

I will be getting this for sure. Added it to my wishlist when it was first announced. I look forward to two new aspects lol.
1- Being able to actually mine asteroids with ships. Before, you just built mining structures and you didn’t have the ability to be part of the actual process.

2- Ship fleets. So with being able to walk around now. I look forward to flying my little mining ship…docking on a carrier…walking to the bridge and then jumping systems back to the homebase production station I will have built.

@GrumpyInUt I don’t know why you even reply you are getting this game. Everyone knows if it says “Space” in the title you are picking it up. That being said I would like a multiplayer feature cause I’m gonna need Grumpy to show me how the hell you play

Well, it has the potential to be awesome but it has a shitload of bugs in it at the moment.

And no MP of any kind so if you wanna play, you’re gonna have to read the instructions.


#9

Anyone playing today? In about 3 hours I’ll have all day and all night to myself and I’ll likely be in discord voice chat.


#10

You scared me away!!!


#11

Suck it up snowflake.

Space games are very intriguing for me and I am very interested in this game. But this time of year especially my game time can be limited which makes it difficult to invest that time in a game that has a huge learning curve. After a day of school and coaching basketball it becomes what mindless thing can I do for a little bit to unwind. Still may purchase and take the time to learn but that is mainly what holds at least me back.


#13

How’s it going so far @GrumpyInUt you have a mining fleet yet?


#14

I do! I have 2 medium mining ships that just buzz around mining and selling. I also have a trade ship I order to run around buying and selling stuff to complete trucking missions. I have a scout ship programmed to fly around and update markets for him.

While all that’s going on, I zoom around in my combat ship doing random missions.


#15

next step for me is purchasing a large mining ship that has a small ship dock on it so I can park on it and take the helm when I want to go mining.


#16

I gotta stay out of this thread.

Yet.
