  1. Thank you all for the suggestions! It is appreciated! Going to take some time to look through these and see what may work best for me. Hopefully I'll be playing with you all soon. Thanks!
  2. Hello all. Long time org member, but I haven't been very active yet. I have been following Star Citizen for a long time, but until this last week, have not had a rig to play the game well at all. Well, I am all updated and can run the game quite well and am enjoying it for the first time. I have wanted to get more involved with the org for some time now, but without being able to play it just wasn't something I really had the opportunity to do. My question is about mics and headsets. I am an older gamer and am used to text chat in most multiplayer games. I've not had any experience with voice chat in games. I have discord and have tried it with an old headset and it kinda worked alright, but I'd like to purchase something better. Do you all have any recommendations of what you use while playing Star Citizen and other online games? Also, do I just need the headset and discord? Do I need another program to use this while playing Star Citizen? Is there some "Multiplayer Voice for Dummies" info I need? Thanks for all the help and sorry for what may be a silly question. I hope to get to know you all better soon! Thanks!
  3. Thanks for the response and the link! What are everyone's thoughts on the current asteroid hanger that comes with the cutlass? Any good, or is it kinda boring like most are now that they are smaller?
  4. So, I know this discussion is a week or so old, but I think I figured out a plan. I think I may grab the cutlass now to see what it is like when the rework comes out. Just a couple of questions about this: Do we know if the rework will come out with 3.0? I know it is supposed to be soon, but is it supposed to be that soon? Also, I am thinking of just grabbing the ship straight for $100 instead of upgrading my Avenger as this would give me two ships and a new hanger. Any advice on this? Is the VGF hanger any fun now that they are all a bit smaller? Would having an Avenger and Cutlass be a good mix and/or good spots to upgrade from later? Not really wanting to put too much money into the game yet, so I still may just upgrade the Avenger, but worth thinking about having another ship I suppose...and a hanger. Also, is the cutlass any good now? Heard many people complain about it, but I hear people complain about most ships so I was wondering what you all thought. Sorry for all the questions, but thanks for the advice!
  5. Thanks, Yodel, that is a really good idea. I know that it is more of an outlaw ship, and while I have no interest in playing an outlaw, the general load out of the ship does seem to really fit what I would be interested in. I can't wait to see the rework of it as well. If I do upgrade, it may be a good idea to go cutlass first and then I can always upgrade again to freelancer if I like. I appreciate the idea!
  6. I have enjoyed it a good bit any time there was a free fly and I could try it out. I like the look of it too. What do you mean by properly fitted? Are there guns you recommend buying for it?
  7. Thanks for the responses! They help a lot. I am really glad to know that the aiming pip is off. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how I was so much worse at hitting things than I was before. The flight model is really not my cup of tea and I figured it would change some eventually, but I was pretty certain I was still just as good at pointing my mouse at things. Nice to know not every miss was my fault! With your talk of other ships like the 300 series, I have thought of possibly upgrading to a freelancer, especially when 3.0 come out to enjoy more of the relaxed exploration and trade. I can always buy another Avenger or something for not too much cash if I need to dogfight again I suppose.
  8. Hey all, I have been thinking about posting this for a while, but didn't want to sound as if I am complaining. However, I have been having a real hard time with Star Citizen since the new flight model update. My only ship is an Avenger Titan, which I have previously enjoyed very much. However, now I seem to barely be able to fight with my ship at all. I fly with mouse and keyboard, not for any specific reason, but just because I always have (I do have a relatively decent joystick I could use). Therefore my gimbals are not locked and I can only either shoot with the main chaingun or the two wing mounted guns, not both. The wing guns have always seemed pretty weak for me, and are hard to use with the mouse. The chaingun worked well for me previously, but now seems to take forever to kill anything. I totally understand that things will continue to change and that I need to spend more time with the new flight mechanics. Also, my computer is good, but getting old and the game doesn't run great on it either, so I do have some stutter and chugging which can make it hard to dogfight. However, I just haven't really been able to enjoy the game in a while. So I guess what I want to know is: Is this normal? Are other Avenger users experiencing issues? Is the flight model a bit off or do I just have to get used to it? Are their some tactics I can use to do a better job with what I have? Really not trying to complain, just seeing how much of what I have been experiencing is due to me or due to the game. I really enjoy Star Citizen and want to play it more, but since this last update I have really been staying away out of frustration. Thanks for any suggestions or advice you can give. It is appreciated!
  9. Very sorry for your loss! So sorry to hear this! Take as much time as you need!
  10. I watched a lot of videos too and noticed it was buggy. I also didn't really like the resource collection part. Seems like some areas have a lot of resources and others have nothing at all. A good one to watch though. I like the graphics and the general idea. Maybe it will turn out to be something fun when they add some more too it.
  11. Yeah, it certainly is a nice looking ship! I do think I will eventually get a HOTAS for Star Citizen, but may wait a bit to see how everything ends up. One thing I probably do need to do is learn more about COMSTAB and decoupled mode. That will probably give me more options in fights and things. I don't even know what COMSTAB does to be honest I've been enjoying learning dogfighting and things so I'll have to work on those next. Thanks!
  12. That is all really interesting. I still wonder if the SH is the ship for me, but I can definitely see how either going all gimbaled or all fixed weapons would make the sabre a lot more deadly. When you use all fixed weapons, do you find that it is easier to use a joystick than the mouse and keyboard?
  13. So I was taking the Sabre out for a few test flights over the last few days. I was really excited about the ship. I love the look of it and it seems like it would be a great ship to fly. However, after flying the Super Hornet a few weeks ago I just didn't like the Sabre as much as I thought I would. Don't get me wrong, it's a great ship and I still think it is my favorite visually. However, I felt like I slid around in it a lot and it seemed harder to control than other ships. I know the flight model isn't done yet and the sabre is a fast ship. It just wasn't as maneuverable as I thought it would be. Also I wish both set of guns lined up. Gimbaled or not, either way it would be nice if both matched up. I was wondering what you all thought of the ship. I'm a decent pilot, but I know a lot of you have more experience than me, especially in a wider variety of ships and situations. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on this guy. I guess this is a ship I really want to like and am struggling with doing so. Ideas? Thoughts? Comments?
  14. I just hope one day I'll be able to walk around Port Olisar as smoothly as that guy did and without laggy stuttering All in all though, very neat stuff!
  15. Yeah, I like the idea of the game but there are plenty of games like this out there that don't have a subscription. I'll probably keep an eye on it, but can't see myself playing this one.
  16. Is that our Org colors? I'm not usually a fan of orange, but it looks awesome with that really dark gray.
  17. That is very good advice. I really want to be able to do some cargo runs when 3.0 comes out, but who knows what will happen between now and then. Plus I have a new problem....I've been trying out the Super Hornet and have absolutely loved it. I had read that people thought it was slow and ungainly, but for whatever reason I just feel super comfortable with it. The 6 guns don't hurt either. I know this one is not usually on sale, but depending on the vote and later sales and stuff I can see myself being awfully tempted to go for this one....may be a bit out of my price range though. Anyway, will probably wait and see what comes. Thanks again!
  18. Thanks for all the help and advice on this. I am pretty certain that I am going to go for the Freelancer, but may think on it for another day or so. I had also considered the Dur. That is an interesting idea. I know that one is not flight ready yet, but will they give me a stock Freelancer to fly for time being if I upgrade to it? I don't want to be left without anything to fly.
  19. Hello all! Was looking at upgrades today and I realized that it is within my current price range to upgrade my Avenger Titan to a Freelancer. I love the Freelancer and just the idea of being able to cart around decent cargo, have a multicrew ship, and not be horrible in a fight is appealing to me. However, the Avenger is a much more of a nimble dog-fighter type ship than the Freelancer and loosing that would be a bit of a concern. The limited view in the Freelancer doesn't bother me too much, though the Avenger's is so very open so I would lose a decent amount of visibility too. Anyway, just been mulling this over tonight and wondered if anyone had any advice! Thanks!
  20. I was looking at this on Steam last night. Seems neat. Don't think they've implemented much that they plan to other than big battles yet. Looked pretty interesting, though!
