  1. Resurrecting a thread from the abyss.... Eve was introduced to me as spreadsheets in space.... The person was not wrong. Anyway here we go with question time: 1. Why you like it? It is enjoyable enough playing that I still appear to be doing it . I am testing bits and pieces out and trying to find a niche that I like doing. 2. How long you've been playing? 2-3 weeks. 3. What you like to do in the game I thought I was going to like the industrial side of things but as an alpha clone you are pretty limited to what skills you can have and competing with the big boys who undercut you is a bit hard. I do however like the market mechanics. PVE has been growing on me, but exploring has been my main area of play. Playing little minesweeper like minigames and going on adventures has been pretty cool. I do like the different nations space ship design. Albeit more in the sense there are a few ships in each that make me go wow that is really damn cool. Ones like the Astro... Arbitrator gives me Star Trek vibes.... Naga gives me Star Lancer vibes. 4. What you would LIKE to do in the game... Its in a pretty cool sci fi setting. The complexity is like playing a paradox game, with the depth they have taken mechanics to. Overall this gives me something new to pass time while Star Citizen fleshes out. Im adding a 5. What don't you like? Damn Trigs while being a newbie mining in high sec. One minute you are peacefully mining in your venture as your eyes glaze over... The next minute your backside is over the other end up the universe in tiny pieces. Tutorial is a bit empty.... I found the wikis about the tutorials more educational and have mainly learnt the game off the web or other players.
  2. A curious issue. Went to buy one of those cheap starter packs, they had 1 left of the aurora. Added it to cart. Said there was 1. Click checkout and then it refreshed the page and vanished, started complaining that there is not enough stock to fulfil the request. Anyway to rectify this issue.
  3. Debating the merits of getting a Greycat buggy..... I know its free with referrals but I don't think I will get enough for it. It seems zippy, small and easy to transport. What's the smallest ship it can fit in? I mean can it be squished into the back of an avenger titan or reliant kore. I didn't get a chance to play will it fit during the anniversary. How many trips would you say to get there and was it from a 5000 uec start.
  4. How you finding getting off of Hurston with your Caterpillar? Haha I found it real struggle street. I shot out of the Lorville hangar door nose to the stars at a rate of 30ms, got a little ways then suddenly found myself going in reverse at -8ms and increasing, even with boost on. It took a very slow gentle ascent across the horizon with landing gear down to get to a point it was safe to use boosters and normal throttle to get to orbit.
  5. Query are we going to need an MPUV Cargo to haul cargo to and from big ships like the Endeavor etc.
  6. I by no means have perfect knowledge, but I'd say keep your merchantman. Its got a lot more capacity than either of those ships combined for storage, its a lot more ship and you can trade goods open a shop or do anything that max can do. Mining wise in theory sounds good, it is our current fastest way to make cash, but the scale of trade you can do with the merchantman probably greatly outweighs the cash rate you can make with a prospector. If being able to mine was really your keen need, an orion probably works better even on cargo capacity for those two choices. If it were up to me I would just stick with the merchantman, its unique, a lot more ship, can open a shop, transport a lot more cargo and hell it appears a lot more defensible.
  7. The Medivac Apollo and 85X have fallen :O..... Here comes the 890 Jump with 6 years insurance. And we will never ever speak of this again :O
  8. Oh boy is that climb out of Hurston noticeable, I really feel bad for the starfarers and reclaimers. My 600i crawls out of the atmosphere at about 140 or 220, something really slow. It's quite funny I always thought I would love a connie before I actually got playing Star Citizen the love faded. The Aquila's bridge had me keen, but then after trying both that and the 600i, I really became a 600i fan. Love the field of view and even the lumbering manoeuvres. Does everything I need solo. Don't get me wrong the connie is a great little jack of many trades. An important thing to remember though and might have both of us change our mind is these new flight mechanics are on their way. It might surprise everyone and make a huge difference. It's a shame the connie series and 600i series are just a little too small to pocket an 85x for atmospheric transfers. I think that would make a game changer now we are getting a feel for what planets are going to be like. Small craft really will rule the skies and perhaps medium size ships will maybe want to stay in space were they rule.
  9. I just realised 890J has never ever been CCuable. 890J is off the list. I aint going to drop a fresh $1500 AUD or something. Maybe slow ccu creep but..... I aint going for a stand alone. Ho Hum live and learn. :D you can fly on my 600i on the optimistic note.
  10. That 890J is tempting...… very tempting..... I am thinking of burning my 600i for it, but the AUD is sadly down and I love my 600i!!! I really love the size of the 600i touring and the spaciousness (Even if I have only seen the explorer in action - I do hope they secretly drop the touring tomorrow). If I recall 890j comes with your 85x, so I might burn my 85x as well if I'd get it back (There any 890J owners that can confirm you get the 85x when you buy just the 890j). I'm sure there will be a few more surprises coming up. I mean I didn't expect to hear the Carrack is back under construction. This might be the first quiet anniversary for me in while, but I am also considering getting more Endeavor modules.
  11. 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!

  12. I actually really like the idea. It adds a bit of I guess realism or uniqueness to the ships and also will definitely open the transportation profession.Let's just try not to do the mental gymnastics on the physics behind it :D. So far in 3.3.5 I've not minded the jump from Port Olisar to Hurston. My preference has been in my 600i or at least a spaceship with an interior so I can walk about inside. I mean I've had time to re-explore my 600i and realised that they had adjusted a few things here and there (I think the change was made moons ago now). I think though you do start to notice the repetitive creaking of the ship in quantum and that noise might wear on some people after a time, may want to BYO music. It will be great when there are more minigames in I think. The people I really feel sorry for are those in the fighters or cockpit only crafts. Stuck looking at the blue vortex of speeeed probably gets a bit old quickly. I did the jump a couple of times in my 85x and ran out of dashboard screens to press, twisty things to turn and mobiglass map info to read. I'm all for the parking smaller ships and going for a quicker trip or at least having the ability to get out and explore whilst in jump. I think there might be a lot more DOES IT FIT and CAN WE MAKE IT FIT happening in the near future.
