  1. I wonder if cap ships will beat that starfarer to Hurston.

    So....what ship do you have?

    StratoCrewzr Luxuary Reviews

    To be fair, I kind of regret devoting time to reading it. He is certainly passionate and more articulate than many in his complaint, but there are just so many complaints for the 890J or the 600i it just gets exhausting. Not everyone will get what they envision or want and if CIG devoted itself to listening to every single person and changing at each complaint we would have nothing. I think his real life angle does have some merits, but at the same time this is a game and real life doesn't apply. If in the end some of his ideas like a night club are listened to, there will be people complaining due to wasted space. The whole concept of luxury is so subjective and everyone's imagination different, there can't possibly be everyone satisfied. 600i to me actually is my favourite ship thus far in the universe and is the main ship I will continue to fly (I have flown everything in the test universe). I really love the light open space and minimalist scheme, it feels a bit like walking around a French Chateau with vaulted ceilings. The cockpit view is breathtaking, I will just go hang in there or in the Captain's quarters to watch the sun come up or set in Daymar. Are the current bugs with it a little annoying sure, but that is alpha and not really complaint worthy as they will be fixed in time. To me the only thing worth noting are the lack of external lights causing gameplay issues. I suspect when we actually get more game systems introduced a lot of the dead weight will become interactive. E.g. the bar/kitchen, there is meant to be hospitality service to passengers and hunger/survival mechanics. Pool tables etc probably get mini games. Overall she ain't a blockade runner, she is reasonably big, sleek and clean. I am loving what I have gotten now. There will probably be changes regarding components armaments, however she isn't a warship and whilst it will probably end up being high end tech, I don't expect a warship. I really think instead of the slow steady curve of constructive criticism, that descends into wingding or character questioning statements and making of demands that have to be unrealistically fulfilled right this second. We need to take a step back, breathe, remember this is an alpha for a very big project and then see what happens.

    Ship Shape - The RSI Apollo

    Probably only needs to be a partial fall back if there are a bunch of us who have med ships. We won't be able to use all of them at once. Haha heres the keys, don't scratch the paintwork.

    Ship Shape - The RSI Apollo

    I got the Medivac version. The red version of triage I won't lie looks cool, but to me the Medivac feels more ambulance coloured. It might be a bit slower, but considering my combat skills having the better armour is more up my alley (Haha I managed to kill an interdicting cutlass with my 85X, but I don't imagine the AI will always be as silly and me as very very lucky). That the Apollo fits in my Hope is also a tick in my box of why I bought it. What has got me a bit stumped is what I am going to do with Apollo V.S Hope flying. If all that is going to happen is a T.1 bed does everything it makes a hospital sized Hope quite a bit redundant and this also is made worse by the fact if players can respawn at other med ships. I think that respawning really should be a luxury left up to an Endeavor Hope as it makes it special and well also has a damn hangar. The only consolation is if the respawning is taken away from being a Hope exclusive I might buy more components for the Endeavor and rejig it to being more science focused with the Apollo in the hangar. I think that an Endeavor and Apollo will still be an amazing team, whether shuttling to the hospital or having your clinic ship working alongside a science ship. You can either way still treat the wounded and if it came to a fire fight you can get the Apollo into the Endeavor as fast as you can and rely on the Endeavor's shields, whilst you get the hell out of there. Cutlass Red got replaced by Apollo for me because of the medical drones, size and ability to treat more people. I would be lying if it wasn't also an aesthetic reason haha it looks a bit USS Voyager ish. How many of us have medical craft in Tactical Advance? Maybe if there is a lot of uptake for new medical craft we should make a medical wing. If we are all lucky just like the Terrapin, the Apollo will get fast tracked because I think squadron 42 will have great need for them.

    Ship Shape - The RSI Apollo

    I was toying with the Cutlass Red for so long, but I picked me up a Guardian Angel! It looks like the USS Voyager out of Star Trek, so all it needs is Robert Picardo voicing an EMH and I am a very happy chappy.
  7. A query does anyone know of some top grade ram that would fit with either a phantek PH-TC14PE or Noctua NH-D15 CPU cooler? I'm having a wee bit of an issue finding fast enthusiast grade ram to fit 31mm for the Noctua and I can't seem to dig up the clearance specs for the Phantek.

    3.5 added to Roadmap

    890J on the roadmap :O.... I don't need one I have a 600i.... I don't need one..................
  9. Just putting it out there :D new Ryzens 2700x is punching weight with the I7 8700k. That is not including the fact that they are holding back the 2800x to see what intel's response is whichif you hazard a guess is probably superior to 8700k in most ways. I know its only early reviews but hell this is amazing!!! Grats to AMD come on intel start innovating again. My chequebook might be on hold for that new 8700k, just in case intel release something newer and prettier in the next 2-3 months. Let's hope whatever comes out next still fits in a 1151 slot. That said worst gets to worse, if I am stuck with an 8700k that is kinda of shrug. There is always going to be a new sparkly thing round the corner and as I keep saying I don't think there will be enough innovation over the next 10yr so no stress.
  10. To be fair a mate gave it to me for $100. :D I ain't gonna stick my nose up at a $100 stop gap measure that will get my rig going sooner. CPUs have such little innovation or improvement over time so I just got the 8700k probably be 10-15 years before I replace that, so I got one of the best sooner. I am going to probably go for the best Volta gaming GPU when it comes out albeit if I had to buy in now id go the 1080 ti with the 11gigs vid ram I think I saw it had.
  11. Rolling with a Gigabyte variant of the Nvidia 970 with 4g vid ram, using an EVGA Supernova 850 P2 Platinum rates PSU and its all going to be wrapped in the neat little box of the NZXT Noctis 450 case. See how I go I might get some extra fans e.g. Corsair ML120 or Noctua industrial range that goes up to 3000 something rpm but that is an after thought. I want to get the main build built first so I can start using it. One potential thing that scares me I have to admit is potential ram clearance issue with the Noctua D15 :D
  12. Haha sorry mate, I'm absolutely knackered. Didn't realise the around the verse link got responded to.
  13. For me 85X is my smallest ship, the next being my 600i touring variant. It always made sense to me originally to go with the 85X, it has a quantum drive and would make a nice little run about. Well the 100i has come in and whilst the 85x is still nicer looking, I think it makes it a bit hard to remain faithful. You get a sleek ship, probably also with great views and a bed. Then I realised as I was going through the upgrades list you can cross chassis upgrade for free from a 85X to an Avenger Titan and well that might be tempting I mean if its getting bigger then its price will probably increase. However I then keep telling myself the original purpose was to just have a little ship to putt putt around with a bit of style. What's everyone feeling about the new 100i series? Anyone got any strong feelings on these 3 ships.
  14. Cheers for finding that. Ironically I sealed my fate yesterday and bought a Gigabyte Aorus gaming 7 Z370 1151 socket motherboard, so I am stuck to an i7-8700k unless intel surprise us on that socket set. To be fair I am not gonna complain the i7 is $490 which is a lot healthier for the pocket book than $1300^, it also is not a bad processor at all. Still a few months yet before 3.2 and that is my target goal to have this rig built by. If Intel do bring out something new I may be very interested. Other than that. I just have a Samsung 960 pro 512gb ssd, 32gb of probably corsair ram, probably a Noctua N-D15 cpu cooler, windows, internet security and I'm in business.
  15. :O :O :O :O 600i looks absolutely stunning so far. I almost don't think I want to upgrade to the explorer variant.
