I don't know if they can redeeem themselves in time. Some big space games are coming out soon that will blow this terrible mistake called X-rebirth out of the water.
Such a missed opportunity.
This past weekend I broke down and paid into the Elite Dangerous beta. Been playing the single player portion over the weekend. It is fantastic. Can't wait for the beta to start in 2 weeks.

What other games?

Does Elite Dangerous have explorable space stations/first person?

Really? Thats what you want? Explorable space stations, first person? This is what you are looking for in a space-sim EXPLORATION/FIGHTING/TRADING game???
Christ...
Yes, minus the christ part, I don't want any religion in my games thank you!

That's really the main part I am looking for

Perhaps a true FPS game is more what you need.

What would you guys say are the best or must-have mods nowadays for albion prelude?

XRM is your one stop shop. It has a bit of everything. New ships, new weapons, rebalanced economy, better NPC behaviour, more action in contested zones, better fleshed out relations between races(races that don't like each other really fight it out etc.).

I use that and nothing else, but some folks add more stuff on top of it. You just need to make sure that you're not conflicting with it when you use other mods.

Yeah...the mass traffic removal mod. Removes the clutter of small ships around stations that don't do anything(which they explicitly said took part in the in-game economy).

I still don't get why Bernd felt the need to lie out of his ass so much when he was doing the preview videos. Every X fan was already going to buy the game, so why set yourself up for failure like that? It took approximately 30 minutes for people to figure out that the "Every ship is tied into the economy in some way" rhetoric was just bullshit.

Most likely desperation. I suspect they HAD to launch due to money issues and the launch i.e. preorder numbers HAD to be big enough to sustain them throughout the process of finishing the game. So what better way to frontload a cash infusion than by riding the hype train?

Yeah, it was a deceitful thing to do and they have lost most of my trust because of it. Even more than the state of the game.

No official apologies either. Just carrying on with the work on the game as if it was somehow an 'above and beyond' type of effort from them.

There are still a few people on the forums who claim that anyone who bought the game should have known what to expect, and that everyone should be grateful for the fact that Egosoft is still working on it, because their after launch support is second to none. I sincerely hope that cup of Koolaid never passes within 500 meters of my lips.

Does anyone know if they improved performance yet? Last I checked, I was getting approximately 30 fps with GTX 680s in SLI.

There have been some performance improvements, but they've been rather minor, unfortunately.

There is a mod that cuts the amount of NPC ships by 75%, which makes your FPS go up by like 30, though.

Yeah...the mass traffic removal mod. Removes the clutter of small ships around stations that don't do anything(which they explicitly said took part in the in-game economy).

I'm glad this hasn't been abandoned. I can imagine buying it when version 4.0's release coincides with an 80% off sale.

That's the only way I'm going to buy it for sure. Still only one ugly-ass ship and no proper fleet commands. No aesthetic customization options. Crappy upgrade choices for said ship and nothing even remotely resembling late game objectives or challenges. Nothing worth exploring the universe for.

Still cannot purchase smaller ships. No free look. No external views. No freaking turrets for a supposed corvette-sized ship. No ability to properly command from the deck of a capital ship.

The game needs a LOT more work and Egosoft should have known/done a lot better than they did.

P.S. Oh did I mention a UI designed to work with a gamepad which still doesn't work all that well with a gamepad?

I'm keeping my eye on Starforge. I can't take the look of Minecraft. I just don't know why Notch hasn't made a Minecraft 2 that looks 10x better. He has more than enough money by now.

I haven't put so much as a penny towards this yet, so it isn't MY 50 million bucks. I'll put 40 bucks out if and when the thing ships and isn't a complete train wreck. If that makes me an ex-star wars geek wannabe who has never had sex then okay. Kinda wondering where my son and daughter came from though...

I would just like a game that's as good as DA1, thanks.

So not good at all then? That's easily done.

You're in the minority on that one Cutter. DA 2, on the other hand, was the real let down.

DA1 was the last good thing bioware did...


And yet DA 2 sold a lot worse...

It didn't help that I was really hyped for that.... it taught me a valuable lesson. Now I only buy stuff I absolutely want to play

May not be any consolation but there were a bunch of other people who got fooled by their pre-release promises and videos. No company is above this kind of thing it seems.

I do not pre-order stuff any more unless I know for sure what I'm getting. And even then...most games are not high enough priority that I can't wait for it to be out for a while and get some patches under its belt.

I must say I was pretty happy with Shadow Warrior and XCOM: Enemy Unknown though.

PUBLISHER BOARD MEETING

Voice 1: Well ladies and gentlemen, we have a fair bit of extra money in the Titan Lords' budget. What say we funnel it to the dev team so we can deliver an even more polished experience?

*SILENCE*

*SILENCE*

*SILENCE*

*Cacophonus laughter erupts throughout the boardroom*

Voice 2 through tears of laughter: You really had us going there for a minute buddy. Hahaha! OK...who does our CGI trailers again? Yeah, call those guys.

It's from the guys who made Bastion so I'm figuring that it should be more than decent.

News Comments > Towns Dev Leaving; Towns 2 Possible
5. Re: Towns Dev Leaving; Towns 2 Possible May 7, 2014, 10:23 Slashman
 
Here is what I don't get. The game was Early Access, not released as finished. Early Access, as far as I know, is not meant to fund development of the game as its primary purpose, but to involve the community in the development process for bug testing and feedback on features so that the final release is in decent shape.

Dwindling sales would only have an effect on your developing the game if that game was never properly funded for development in the first place. That's why people do kickstarters first to fund the development costs of the game and then do early access after to deliver the best version of the game possible.

So Towns was basically a cash grab/scam with no proper development budget. Awesome.

The only early access game I ever bought was Starforge. I have yet to install it but they are delivering decent updates on an almost monthly basis.

"It's" is ALWAYS a contraction for "it is" (or, less common, "it has").

Thanks to my sister, I've been ordering "brush-etta" from Italian restaurants for years. YEARS. A waiter just last weekend finally had the gaul to respond, "bruh-sketta?"

My whole life is wrong.

You should lock yourself away in a dank dungeon for years to come as payment for your transgression!

Hell no, I'm not putting my money anywhere near this thing!

Seriously, I don't agree with the more pessimistic predictions and I think questioning Chris Roberts' integrity is uncalled for. However, I'm not going to buy it until there's a game because although I've no reason to believe they're doing anything but trying to make the best game they can, that doesn't mean it will be particularly good.

Dude, don't be like that. I mean look how X Rebirth turned out...oh wait!
