    What Is Changing In Your Hanger?

    Ive been waiting for a while now. I have just upgraded my Cutlass Red to the Apollo. Unfortunately lost a Cutlass from my hanger as its a small ship I like a lot. The loaner for the Apollo is a Connie. Yes, I will probably just ignore it My medical needs have now been met though. The Cutlass was never going to offer the best facilities, while I plan on equipping the Apollo with 1 x Tier 3 and 2 x Tier 2 beds.

    So here we have my new computer I built back in August. I am finally getting around to posting pictures etc... I haven't built a computer for a very long time so its nice to know the skills not dead and I think I came out the other end with a great gaming rig. So far I have been playing Star Citizen without any hitches and loving it. The PC is scarily silent in operation even under load and I haven't heard that Noctua cooler break a sweat or strain. I mean I went looking to see if it was spinning or dead, but sure enough round and round the fan blades go. It did naturally lead me to checking though to see if the temps were fine, but nothing wrong there just a great machine cooled on air. I have tried throwing all the games I own at it and its done everything in its stride, overall there is plenty of juice left to upgrade down the track. That graphics card is second hand from a mate, but no hitches and I think I will hold off until something absolutely amazing comes out because at present there is nothing that says wow or real advancement and well nothing that I feel needs it. Visually, I think I nailed a bit of Origin feeling to my build. I was looking at cases and then of all the cases I went through, WOW! Noctis 450. It's sleek, a little different,versatile with room to upgrade and some nice case lighting. I think I really liked the Noctis 450 case because it reminded me straight away, of the origin 600i. I wasn't originally going to build a PC with that in mind, but hey why not. So out the other end, I have a smart looking build. I guess that factor is a bit important because its sitting in the main area of the apartment. Has there been any issues? Well only complaint is my Killer E2500 network cards a little temperamental, it will disconnect in total assembly games or games hosted by steam if I am hosting, but that's fine because there is a second intel network card onboard and it has no such hitch. In that same sort of vein I guess, the central M.2 port with the heatsink cover on is a bit temperamental and sometimes doesn't recognise if it has an M.2 SSD in it. That's easy fixed by using one of the other 3 M.2 ports. SO I think probably the motherboard whilst amazing, might just be a little bit rough coming either out of the factor or in the post. Overall though I think everything else works fine and I love this build. Nothing I would send back and nothing even quirky to report other than the motherboard. I can play Star Citizen on its high settings, record and get good frames. So my main box is ticked. Can I do all my other games, yep box ticked. Were to in the future? 1-5 years time, I may consider buying a second SSD probably a 2TB 970 pro, as by then it will be a lot cheaper. 5-10 years time I may consider upgrading the graphics card. Hehe yes there is still part of me that wishes to have dropped a threadripper 2 in a gaming PC. But that's neither here nor there Anyway, that's all folks! Have a great afternoon and without further adieu here is the specs and some piccies! Specifications Case: NZXT Noctis 450 PSU: EVGA Supernova 850 Watt P2 (Platinum grade efficiency) Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 CPU: Intel I7 -8700k CPU Cooler: Noctua NH D-15 RAM: 32G G.Skill Trident Z Graphics Card: 4G Gigabyte Geforce GTX 970 Hard Drive: 512G Samsung 960 pro SSD M.2 Monitor: Samsung LC32F397WEXXY Operating System: Windows 10 Pro Network Cards: Killer E2500 and Intel Gigabit LAN - Both are onboard network cards.

    You just want to kick him out a ship 1000 times and watch him fall. I think we should kick the two of you out and we can have people race to see who can do it faster. Or if someone can save the both of you.

    Apology to the Connie.

    I have a Connie as a Loaner for my upcoming Apollo, I thought - despite an unfavourable first impression - that I would give it a second chance. The environment has changed, as have the requirements. Initially two runs to Yela from Olisar & back with some cargo. 96 scu doesnt make much profit (675 per run). But I was actually quite impressed with some of it's characteristics. 1) Even fully loaded a Connie pulls very strongly out of atmosphere. Not fast, but very solid and climbs decently. 2) Quantum to Hurston didnt take too long and I went via one of the asteroid fields. On arrival I had used over half my fuel. This thing does have decent legs on it. 3) Pulling out of Hurston is a 100k climb. Three times the distance we have been used to. However the Connie was up to the job, solid and strong climbing all the way out of the atmosphere. This hasnt mitigated it's obvious flaws. Poor handling, 96 scu on such a big ship or the very poor interior space compared to the exterior bulk. However, for what was asked of it today I was pleasantly surprised. I wouldnt buy one, but I can see in the right situation it will have a significant appeal. In my case I have a Hercules C2 for "big cargo", a Mercury that comes with 96scu too and a much smaller, faster hull and for exploration a Dur. The Dur is about 75% as capable as a Connie and will go through small jump holes. No snub or vehicle, but a bike should slide in the back. While it appears to be showing its age, it can still compete, so dont rule them out automatically. Do the numbers

    Org Events

    Have we begun to do Org Events yet like a lot of others have been doing already? I'm curious where I would find information on an upcoming one if we do.

    Chairman club news: Idris-P Upgraded

    November 24th, 2018 This month, our friends at Aegis Dynamics have asked us to pass along another message to Idris-P owners and those amongst our ranks who consider themselves enthusiasts: A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM AEGIS DYNAMICS The Idris-P's legacy of excellence as an ardent peacekeeper speaks for itself. But sometimes, keeping the peace is not enough. Aftermarket kits, initially produced for UEE government agencies seeking an improved patrol/protection plan, will be offered to all Idris-P owners. On Aegis Dynamics' featured day at the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (26th November), all Idris-P owners will be badged and given the opportunity to upgrade at any time, into perpetuity. However, a limited amount of Credit SKUs will be rolled out and offered on a first-come-first-serve basis: Wave 1 at 16:00 UTC, Wave 2 at 22:00 UTC, and Wave 3 at 04:00 UTC. For your convenience, we have provided a Q&A regarding the upgrade kits below. Also, look for further details during this year’s Anniversary Special. We thank you for your loyalty to the Aegis brand and hope you enjoy testing all 26 of our flyable ships, wherever in the 'verse your journey may take you. Desmond Kilson Outreach Associate Idris-P Aftermarket Kit Q&A What is the purpose of this Aftermarket Upgrade Kit?This kit is designed to adjust the role of the Idris-P by providing equipment tailored to dealing with the swarm threat of carrier-type ships. By increasing the Idris-P’s anti-fighter capability, and adding a size 10 weapon, it allows the ship to be more aggressive offensively. What does the Aftermarket Kit change about my Idris-P?The equipment in this kit provides three changes: First, all four standard remote turrets can be replaced with the included Automated Behring M2C Point Defense Systems (2x S4 Hardpoints each). Next, a single Missile Turret equipped with two A&R Harrow Anti-Ship Missile Launchers (8x Size 3 Missiles), can be mounted in lieu of a standard Behring M3C ASA Turret. Finally, the kit provides a Size 10 Hurston Dynamics Exodus Laser Beam. Why beam weapons now?Beam weapons were originally off the table, but during development, we have been R&Ding different ways to approach them that avoid the traditional gameplay concerns with ‘hitscan’ weapons. We envision beam weapons the same way as analogue guns are to the Gatling guns in the ballistic weapons family: an incredibly high fire rate but generally low damage per ‘shot’, compared to, say, Laser Cannons that deliver a volley of fire rather than a stream. Of course, ‘low’ damage is a relative term when talking about the S10 Exodus. How will beam weapons compare to energy or ballistic ones?Beam weapons provide a much quicker projectile, therefore require less maneuvering to keep them trained on a moving target at range - a key benefit when firing from a relatively slow platform like an Idris. Another benefit, like all energy weapons, is the lack of physical ammunition requirements. A useful feature when mission endurance is required. Does the Kit make my Idris-P more powerful than an Idris-M?No, the Idris-M is still the best option for destroying big ships; out of the box, the railgun is much more powerful when the shot lands and its power requirements play better with the ship’s other systems. The M also has stronger armor and higher performance default components. Will I be able to have shields at 100% while firing the Exodus?The Exodus will require a significant amount of power to fire and it’s unlikely that all ship systems will be able to run at 100% whilst doing so (particularly when fire is sustained). Will the upgrade influence cargo capacity?No. The equipment involved in these upgrades does not impinge on the Idris-P’s cargo spaces .

    I have had a connie for quite a while and haven't gelled with it at all. I am selling some of my smaller ships to get bigger ships I actually like.

    On average this means we have all chucked $200 at this game Some days looking at what my hanger has in it I wish this as the case lol.

    This is interesting. So smaller ships are faster out of quantum, bigger ships are faster in quantum. So this could make ships like the Kraken and Idris help full in moving small ships faster long distances. Not just saving with less fuel stops, it just faster.

    My simpit (not finished)

    So, it's finished. I'm pleased with how it turned out, it does look like furniture and not just some toy that I feel embarrased to show to others. There are still those parts about it that I want to change but I can set aside an hour or two when I can to modify and adjust those problems. Hope you like the design and if you do decide to use this design with a few ideas of your own, please upload images here so that I can se what you did differently. /Fatie89 http://
