    My first time building a PC

    You have gone for SSD...... why? M.2. is superior I have the 512gb M.2 and a 1TB SSD for games storage. I filled it out with 2 x 4TB WD Black (Mirrored) for storage.

    Drake Vulture Q&A

    I picked up the Vulture because of its size and the mechanic it offered. I know 12 scu isnt a lot but I figured they would balance it if necessary. It offers me another alternative if I come across something of interest while mining

    Do you even DCS bro?

    Sorry, not me Got enough on my plate without anything extra

    Alpha 3.2 - Aegis Avenger

    It would be useful if they made it modular - EMP / Cargo / Passenger with 6-8 seats and boosted environmental support perhaps. A small ship to insert a squad, but still able to amply defend itself.

    The INTRO is just pure genius....................
  6. I will possibly hold off on this one. Not sure how it fits with my current set up - So it will most likely be an in game purchase. The alternative is to CCU a Herald and use store credit.

    New Vulture

    Having watched the videos about the Vulture, I decided to CCU my Herald and add a bit of Store Credit. It rounds out my Hanger with all current Industry options and it also has 12scu of cargo. This means that it slots nicely in towards the bottom end of my capacities and should enable me to carry anywhere from 12 to nearly 500 scu in convenient amounts. IF a ship / derelict is wrecked on a planet in safe space and say its a biggie - what's to stop you slapping a land grant in the 8km sq spot and effectively cornering it? It would add a layer of secuirty to either scrapping on a huge scale or the ability to repair over time. I see the Vulture as offering small capability that isnt otherwise offered, without the need to move a big ship, crew and costs to do a job. Everything scales, so 2 or three vultures would potentially offer a small salvage crew that doesnt need a big ship.

    New Vulture

    I think both of you are right. These big ships are going to need a lot or resources to fly, be that crew or money. The small ships make a lot more sense and I think a lot of people have overlooked the potential of the smaller ships. In this case could 5 Vultures do as much as 1 Reclaimer? Same crew numbers, but they will be simpler to operate too. Plus they looks small enough to fit inside something larger.
  9. Given the number of vehicles we now have in the verse. It is reasonably comprehensive - what are we missing? I know we're waiting for the Vulture.

    4 years with the ORG!

    Congratulations on an amazing feat. Do you come here often?
  13. I think this is where a lot of us are with Star Citizen. https://medium.com/@baron_52141/star-citizen-delays-as-a-content-creator-98c5235adf4e This is my fundamental issue with the game ---- " Where CIG gets into trouble is their habit of routinely overpromising and underdelivering with their updates. This isn’t intentionally malicious behavior — there is an unbridled enthusiasm and optimism at the management level that, while sometimes endearing, is terrible for PR. Every time a date for an update is given, they 100% believe they’ll hit that date. And then the date goes by. So they change it up, maybe alter the way they present their schedule. And then that falls down too. It often feels like the only thing CIG is ever on time for is another fundraising opportunity. " This is it. This is what generates all the frustration and annoyance - Oh and directly after they have failed yet again we get another concept sale for more money - right when we're feeling fed up.
  14. Mining! And plenty of work to do on the Avenger & 600i - well they'd better pull their fingers out.

    Hercules series now on sale for everyone

    I dont want it to grow at all. Right now it looks ideal. Additionally it serves the purpose neatly - if expensively. But the C2 is the variant that's getting all the good attention, the M2 & A2 arent. In the same way a lot of people are asking why the Gemini.....

    Hercules series now on sale for everyone

    The M2 also looses out on cargo in a big way. So unless its a combate delivery system, the C2 makes a lot more sense. C2 - 624 M2 468 And as usual this isnt on release. We all know things tend to grow with CIG Right now its approximately the same size as a Starfarer.

  19. https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/extras?product_id=&sort=store&search=hercules&itemType=skus&storefront=pledge&type=extras I have CCU'd my Cutlass Black to the C2 Hercules and dropped a couple of other things in the process (Titan, Argo, Cyclone & X1 Force) plus some credit). The Black was too similar to my Freelancer and as I have both the DUR & MAX on the way, the Black became obselete to me - I still have the Red. The C2 will offer me some serious cargo hauling capacity over a Caterpillar - another 50 scu. Plus front and rear ramps for vehicles. It also while not pretty, its a lot prettier than the Caterpillar! Seems like a no brainer to me although I will be interested in seeing what the loaner is - a Caterpillar?

    Hercules CCU Available..

    I looked at all 3, but these arent small ships and they will have a cost to run. The A2 will most likely have the highest operating costs because of its role. The C2 the lowest because its basically Ro-Ro (Roll On Roll Off) with the doors front and back. I'm also hoping that the shape should make it easier to handle in an atmosphere. I think there is also a valid point in mentioning the base cost of these things. They arent cheap. I could buy a Hull C for a lot less and get a massive amount of capacity. However any Hull above B cant land with the cargo - this can. Perhaps this will work well with a C & above ferrying cargo from ground to orbit or the reverse.
