    Basically CIG trying to save money. Instead of paying to convert a $1million or euros in to £'s. That they have to pay to do. That could be up to $50,000 just in charges. So they save them self $50,000.
    But also the way the Tax work in UK they can claim the loan as a over head and pay less tax to start with because of it. And with the interest rates being so low now it could be saving them tens thousands. 
    This is why they started in the UK. To get the tax Rebate. Now they are doing other things to save money. Good to see they have financial advice of people.

    You can find CIG's official response here.
    Basically, CIG asked the bank to provide an advance on their UK tax rebate. While I don't completely understand the situation, they say they did it because the conversion rates to pounds is rather expensive. When they finally receive their UK tax rebate they'll pay the bank back and the contract states that if they are in any way unable to pay the bank WON'T get ownership of Star Citizen.
    Someone also said that they can spend more now because of that loan which could increase the money they get back from the tax rebate, so it's a win-win

    Redeemer back in store until July 10th
    They brought it back because they brought it back without giving us any notice. The reason for taking it down is that its the only Hangar Ready ship out there with no flyable hangar while still permanently available. From what I can tell they are going to clacify it as a Concept ship from now on since Hangar Ready died with the new ship pipeline. The ship will be reworked somewhere in 2018.

    Fact Check
    Star Citizen is in the news again for all the wrong reasons following disclosure of a recent loan. Multiple outlets are reporting developer Foundry 42, the subsidiary of Chris Roberts’ Cloud Imperium Games (CIG), is in financial distress and the crowd-funded game is owned by a British bank. However, a look at the actual details of the loan suggests that is not actually the case.

    Big dog s**t. CIG once talks about store changes like when the Super Hornet, a non-permanent-on-sale ship, was going to change in price and then, without saying anything prior,  they remove a permanent-on-sale-ship like the Redeemer which many people used for their CCU's (not only the 0 dollar ones).

    Disco confirmed in another thread that a Redeemer rework isn't even possible until mid-late 2018. If even then.

    Redeemer no longer on sale.
    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/1/thread/spaceship-prices/272323
    Disco just put up a message on Spectrum saying the Redeemer on long going to be up for sale until after they finish the rework. Do you think they have started to work on that ship?

    It look developed to me I'd say it's 3.0 ready

    I'll keep the Kue, using others as tokens to get back my Argo and Dragonfly that I CCU'd a while ago
    I got them for less than $30 each in the warbond sale, and they're valued at $40 each for CCU purposes, so its working out to be very economical - if you accept teh premise that pixelated space bikes that aren't completely developed to be used in a game that's in alpha can be economical.
  15. RSLtaken added a post in a topic Nox Sale is now live! ($40)   

    So who is thinking or have already got one? And what your plans for it.

    Nox Sale is now live! ($40)
    BEHOLD
    You lean forward, settle into the contoured form of the Nox. The articulated backplate gently clicks into place, binding you into position. The holographic display flickers to life. You can feel the entire body of the ship hum as the powerful engine spins to life. There’s so much power, gated, waiting to be released. You peer down the start line. Your competitors seem focused. You smile because they don’t know that they’ve already lost. Engines whine as the starter lights begin to cycle. You rev your engine, joining the roars of the other racers as you wait to be unleashed. 
    Your eyes narrow. 
    It’s time. 
    Go.

    EVOLVE
    For a century, it has lived on the fringes of racetracks around the Empire. Open-canopy racing enthusiasts had to search far and wide simply to get their hands on a Nox — even an extensively damaged one — and then they’d spend thousands of Credits to rebuild and customize these notoriously fast racers for competition. Now, it’s finally here. Aopoa is proud to unveil the first model of the famed open-canopy racer designed specifically for a Human pilot. With the recent passage of the Human Xi’an Trade Initiative, Aopoa is now bringing the Nox to the UEE and giving racers from all corners of the Empire the opportunity to become one with speed.

    SURPASS
    Having only been introduced in the late 28th century, the Nox represents one of the most recent additions to Aopoa’s lineup and was designed as a direct Xi’an response to Human open-canopy vehicles. Introduced into their culture via the Xi’an settlement on Oya III, the inhabitants there learned to love riding space bikes from their Human neighbors. With permission from Emperor Kr.ē, the Aopoa council crafted a sleek hull from lightweight composite materials that provide maximum speed and maneuverability in both atmospheric environments and vacuum. Unleashed, the Nox would bring new grace and elegance to the unadulterated thrills that only open-canopy racing can provide.
    You can buy it here as well as look at the brochure

    Hey there [ichi]
    You have reached RSI's Concierge Support.
    To be honest, I'm unsure if ground vehicles will have upgrades to them made available. The last time we had them available, it was just the standalone version, so I wouldn't advise expecting it just yet. I will however pass along your feedback to the Community team. 
    Please let me know if you have any other questions. 
    All the best,
