Old thread here
Sounds like they are going back to a lot of the elements from X3 and earlier that were
stripped outstreamlined from the abortion that was X: Rebirth. That's great, as I love X3 and still play it sometimes. Building giant stations and making a galactic trading empire is my jam. What worries me is that they are still trying to have you be able to walk out of your ship and walk around stations to talk to people and such. While this seems like a desirable feature on paper, anyone who played X: Rebirth saw how well it was executed last timeSpoiler
Egosoft has never been able to make even mediocre looking character models nor halfway decent character animations. They will need to improve in this area significantly if they want the interiors of the stations to not completely suck this time around. What I saw in the video was not entirely encouraging in that regard, albeit that was pre-alpha footage.
