Same here.. most "wrecks" I've seen have been burnt out pieces of ships which usually show up as a dual signal... one with the bulk of the frame and a smaller one nearby with a cargo canister that may have rolled off from the wreck.I've never seen anything like that in-game. Have you? Does it show up as a POI?
That right there makes me believe we are looking at potentially a future build which is quite exciting IF you consider the possibility of first person gameplay which was confirmed shortly after. Those "abandoned" ships look to be in good shape... potentially repairable and flyable. That isn't a new concept. I remember finding abandoned ships in X2 and X3 and being able to get in and fly them off and claim them. Perhaps that particular cat got let out of the bag, that said I may want to go visit Apollo and check coordinates to see if that is there.
