I have never played a game from the X series, but considering the passionate fan base I probably should ;)

This. Might be just the break through for them if it comes through and works nicely.

I loved 3X... but it was a tough love... because the interface was so complex and cumbersome to work with.

Some other things too but this^ IMO was why the X3 wasn't as popular as it deserved to be.

P.S. Glad to see they're at it again :D

This would be a definite buy if they added massive scale conquering to it. The X3 series universe felt too stagnate unless you had a couple of key mods, but those mods came with a plentiful amount of bugs. It'd be awesome to go from lowly mercenary to conqueror of the stars. Maybe start by capturing a station, building a fleet, maybe taking over a few pirate sectors, and then declaring war on a major faction.

Oh, here's the rest of my list of things that should be added/improved:

-AI factions at war should actively engage in raiding/conquering enemy sectors or pirate sectors

-First-Person command of capital ships

-Unique cockpit for all fighters, capital ships, etc

-More engaging capital ship battles

-Weaponry needs to be more diverse in strength and effects

-AI navigation needs to be improved

-Traveling needs to be faster

-Better UI for controlling massive AI combat/trade fleets

-Hire pilots instead of purchasing AI modules

-Reduced AI modules (shouldn't have to buy 50 to get one ship up and running effectively)

Same with me. I felt all giddy inside when I saw this thread. You made my month, TC. Thank you!

Now that several X fans have gathered: Which X is a good way to start? I think I got X-Gold on a magazine one, so that would be an easy choice for me. X3 has a very steep learning curve and is not very accessible according to some reviews.

Terran Conflict is the best to start with, best UI they've done to date and that was always the toughest part the X Series.

I started playing X3 TC last month and I love it. So I figure by the time I'm done with the game, X-Rebirth should be a day away. :D
