Bought the below before the GBP exchange rate changes. 85x Avenger Renegade Gladius Valiant Herald All these will be either CCU'd or melted so I can rebuy my 2nd Explorer pack. Oh and stocked up on a bazillion zero cost CCU's.
Meh I'm just buying up the 0 cost CCU's so I can chop and change at will during the alpha since the ships roles and abilities may increase / decrease as the dev progresses. Maybe we will find out that the MM cannot transport fuel or you have to hire Banu NPC's to fly it, or the NPC's required to man larger ships cost too much to hire to make them profitable (or are just plain retards when in combat), etc. I would recommend getting what you want but also getting the CCU's to change if needed.
I'm thinking the Buccaneer will get done for 3.0 since it seems they went straight onto that from the Herald. They have mentioned it several times in recent ATV/RTV and the drake GT section. Where are they now? 'The Drake Buccaneer is undergoing initial modeling and will be one of our next targets for flight ready status.'
Don't know if this is a good thing. The main issues I had with NMS were from its poor design and PRICE rather than the underlying procedural tech (which I thought was actually quite good). If they took all the tech from NMS put it into a new game with a proper design (adding a more focused objective), with fully fleshed out lore, and story it would be a game worth playing.
