  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Query are we going to need an MPUV Cargo to haul cargo to and from big ships like the Endeavor etc.

    Hesitant ship-decision

    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.
  6. 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

    Apology to the Connie.

    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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!

  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  18. AMD's zen+ architecture is out in April. So what everyones thoughts on AMD and Intel at present, spectre issues aside. (Amusing side note in Australia you could buy an intel I9 7980XE for about $2800 or you could buy two AMD threadripper 1950X at $1340 have change left over and be left with a creative predicament of how you are going to implement two processors without using a server motherboard.)
  19. 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..................
  21. :O :O :O :O 600i looks absolutely stunning so far. I almost don't think I want to upgrade to the explorer variant.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
