Is this in any way inspired by or similar to Noctis (because of the exploration aspect, and the size of the universe)?

I'd loveto be able to play Noctis on iOS!

I'd never heard of Noctis before you just mentioned it, oddly enough.

The game is definitely going to be closer to a mix of Privateer and Frontier in tone. You can take on any of a number of roles you wish in order to live your in-game life such as trader, mercenary, pirate or smuggler. There is currently approximately 10,000 stars in-galaxy which span a diameter of 100,000 light years. Lots for anyone to do and see I would hope

To better show off the visuals I modified the chase camera a little so it tilts when you're at full acceleration:

Will you be able to actually land on planets to conduct trade? I thought the 3d rendering of planet surface in Frontier Elite 2 added a lot of character and atmosphere. And will there be aliens? Different factions?

Needless to say I'm excited, and I'll be following this one closely! Good luck!

There will be planetary outposts like in Privateer but moving around on planetary surfaces likely won't be in the game at release. It is something I'd like to add in an update, but right now I'm focusing on making the space travel, trading and combat as good as possible.

There will be different groups in the game yes. As for aliens, let's just say nobody's encountered any yet.

Let's just say that the X series is coming to the iOS

One small annoyance though: the space stations look way too 'conventional' and 'safe'. In other words, they seriously lack originality and that 'wow' factor. It wouldn't hurt to make some crazy designs. In fact, 'craziness' should be encouraged.

Here's a database of all the stations in X3 Reunion. Some of these stations look absolutely MINDBLOWING and MAJESTIC. I'm not saying that every station should look like the ones found in the game, but they do show a lot of creativity and makes space exploration all that more fun.
