That stream looked quite promising, actually! At any rate, this isn't another Rebirth style launch.

My first impression as well. But just quickly skipped over it. I'm currently very interested in Starsector, which seems to be a gem. http://fractalsoftworks.com/ - there's some YT footage and it has it's userbase. Not on Steam.

The Steam reviews aren't all bad. One of them gave it 10 manual dockings out of 10.

I look forward to some proper reviews, and hope they can sort out the bugs.

Costs $50 though.

Trolling through the forums and screenshots, there's some sort of bug that will cause your ship to suddenly teleport FAR out into empty space from time to time which seems to be the worst bug. There's some silly ones causing NPCs heads to be wrong (like only eyes and tongue) or NPCs to show up outside the ship. Oh, and some folks are having problems with the tutorials.

What really seems to be hurting the game is the lack of guides. How do I do this? How do I do that? Where am I supposed to go? OMG this game is stupid! Rage quit.

There's a ship emblem for @BoboTheMighty https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.n…4F6DF278EEB49/

Edit: More fixes today. The bug that sent you off into la la land when checking the map is dead along with a few others.

Game looks ok-ish - but where is the story campaign?

Is it really just another hollow sandbox?

None of them are hollow sandboxes! They are rather <ahem> rarified, though. Like, 10 hours of gameplay to get 60 seconds of story.

Well there is still a lot of bug squashing to do, really.
I tried to distance myself from that game but I never win against space and ships. I quite liked the feel of discovery and the 'real' going in and out of my spaceship even if I did not do a lot of 'piloting'.
Though, when I wanted to return for a second session, my game was restored with me under the floor of the station. I know because it was transparent and people walked above me.
I advise you to wait.

I'm getting poor performance so I'll wait for more patches and improvements.

I watched some random guy broadcasting his session playing X4 on Steam last night…. Wow, the map alone looks like a vast improvement on X3. The fighting and environment sure looked pretty too. Have added it to the wishlist but realistically I doubt my ageing PC would be able to do it justice. Something for the future.

Egosoft has announced that they will be announcing the new expansion at Gamescom. It's going to be focused on the Split and is due out… in 2019.
