      Default Thinking of buying this game....but is there any of this?

      Space Chatter?

      I was a HUGE fan of Freelancer...So every new space sim that comes out i'm always eager to see if it's good.

      The one thing that i loved about Freelancer so much was all the space chatter everywhere....it made the universe seem SO much more alive. It didn't feel like you were the only person in the entire game. Does this game have lots of space chatter? And if there isn't, are there any mods or anything to add it?

      It may sound silly but to me space chatter is a huge fundamental aspect of any space sim....it really gives the game ambiance.

      It's very important to me that the universe /sector / galaxy whatever seems alive.....like Freelancer did. Pirates, people scanning you, etc etc. When i played X3 Reunion it felt soooo empty and quiet. Like I was the only person in that entire game.

      Thanks!

      Hi, and welcome to the forums

      Unfortunately there is no space chatter in the game (unless you shoot them and they shout at you ), ulfius has made a space chatter mod but it basically replaces the engine sounds of the larger ships and you cannot here it when you are piloting the ship. You need to viewing from the outside.

      Space chatter is one those things that have been talked about on the EGOSOFT forums and ideas have been thrown around, however to my knowledge ulfius's mod is the only one of its type and is not ideal.

      X3TC imo has potential but it is not as good as it should be ... yet

      EDIT: i'm not trying to put you off buying the game as it is improving with each patch and mod, but it is just my opinion of the game atm

      man thats too bad they really need to come out with something to add radio / space chatter. It makes such a huge difference (at least to me) and its so much cooler. so weird...i mean Freelancer came out what over 10 years ago? and still no space sim captures the feeling of a universe that's alive like that game did...and i cant imagine it's really hard to do?

      So my other question is are there at least a lot of other ships flying around everywhere you go? So at least it seems like there are a lot of other people around?

      thx!

      Yes, LOTS. Too much sometimes, that's why there is some mods too limit them

      hmmm well that's good at least? do you see them engaging in battles and stuff? just on their own? man if they added space chatter then that would be perfect.....what about the universe it itself? is it boring an monotonous? same look for every start system? or is their a lot of unique stuff in the game?

      thx!

      Well, kind of...

      Pirates/Xenon/Kha'ak will engage friendly/neutral ships, and in some sectors you may see commonwealth ships fighting each other.

      In fact ... You do get a limited amount of space chatter (police scan you and ask you to drop your freight if you are carrying anything illegal). However, I have not been scanned by a pirate and asked to drop my freight.

      I was one who disliked the space chatter in Freelancer... and would immediately look for a mod to disable it if it was included in X games... hearing silly things for the nth time is not fun... however, I have a feeling you will like Suzy... (there are station announcements in the stations which you will like)...

      X3:TC is many many times better than Freelancer in gameplay, there is so much more to do, so many more ships to fly, and the game lasts far far longer... but the real difference is that you control an unlimited fleet in X3:TC, and can build an unlimited number of factories, which makes it so much more realistic, and in depth...

      Anyone think XTM should have an optional sector chatter thingy in it?

      And a bit off topic but can you actually get a legal full version of freelancer anywhere? I never actually got to try it O_O.

      Thanks,adal8or.
