    Bursar got a reaction from Kiwi in 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.

    Being more of a solo player I really like the Vulture in preference to a Reclaimer. I will be tempted when it comes up for sale.

    Bursar reacted to Drakin in New Vulture   
    I really like the Vulture, which surprises me because I wasn't expecting much from it.
     
    I agree that it makes more sense than a Reclaimer for a solo player.
     
    However, I think it is a small enough ship that it shouldn't be too difficult to earn in game, whereas the Reclaimer will be far more difficult to earn in game.
     
    Personally I have a Reclaimer, which I'll get around to using whenever I can come up with sufficient crew and resources to fly it. I may well be able to earn a Vulture in game before I'm able to afford taking out my Reclaimer for more than short rides.

    Bursar reacted to Drakin in Hercules series now on sale for everyone   
    Yes, I think people need to remember that there are reasons why ships have grown in size in the past. The main reason is that before they would design the exterior of the ship first, and then later try to fit the interior spaces inside. Now they lay out the interior of the ship and then design the exterior around that.
     
    So at least in theory, if they're doing their job right, concept ships should no longer be growing well beyond their original size specifications.
     
    To be fair, there was a secondary reason why some ships have grown in the past, and that is because they realized later on that they needed additional interior spaces that they had not at all planned for originally. The biggest example of this is the Idris, where they discovered while building the story line for Squadron 42 that they needed several additional areas added (armory, brig, extra crew quarters, etc). This could still possibly be an issue in some cases (I think they recently said they had to add a level to the Bengal carrier so they could add a tram system?), but I think this is also less likely for newer concepts.
     
    Basically, don't count on new concept ships growing significantly during the development process.

    I think we're going to find that refueling is going to be critical to most things. Quantum fuel ONLY available from Cry Astro and the like? Think about how that puts a crimp in Exploration. As for the rest - we're going to need to look very closely at operations and availability.

    Bursar reacted to Tactical Advance in RSI authentication - All Members   
    All,
     
    I am pleased to announce we have completed the first steps in the RSI authentication tool.
     
    What's an RSI authenticated member?  Someone who is in the Tactical Advance organization on the RSI website.  (You must have us as your main organization for you to be approved)
     
    What does this bring to the Tactical Advance Organization 
     
    This gives us greater control over who can see what content on the forum.  For example, currently if anyone signs up (not a member) they can see all division content.  Going forward only RSI authenticated members will be able to see divisional forums. Who's in the Tactical Advance Organization?.  Prior to the RSI authentication tool we did not know unless we matched the whole RSI website against the forum and TeamSpeak manually,  logistically unpractical for a large organization.  The RSI authenticated member tool automates this for us across the RSI, our forum and TeamSpeak. This also adds greater security and remove manual intervention. Who can access organization areas on  TeamSpeak?. Currently, anyone can access all the rooms, going forward only RSI authenticated members will be able to access organization related rooms.  
    Adding the RSI authenticated member tool makes roles redundant, we can now refocus these people on in-game activities.
     
    In addition to the above, we have been working on improving the new member experience.  Getting started in Star Citizen and signing up to an organization is not a straightforward process and can seem fragmented.  For this reason we introduced a wizard that will guide new members through the 4-step process.  This is a work in progress and we will be adding more content over time.
     
    I am really pleased with the progress we have made over the past few years.  We will be the best organization out there, leading the way in technology and at the same time creating the best experience for our members.  A big thank you to all the people who helped make this organization what it is today.
     
    Please click the link below and authenticate yourself now, the cutoff date is the 31st March 2018

    Bursar reacted to FriendCalledFive in Do new/updated ships always get a discount?   
    Ships going on sale means they are available to buy, not at a reduced price. Occasionally there are starter packages at reduced sale prices.
     
    Concept ships go on sale with a cheaper warbond variant which means you can only buy it with real money, not store credit.

    Bursar got a reaction from FriendCalledFive in Constellation Aquila vs Terrapin + something   
    It seems a very narrow tasked ship. Most likely more than capable, but highly defined and limited in flexibility - A very tough scout that cant run away easily. 1 bunk and possibly 2 crew. No cargo, no vehicle althogh the scanner looks promising, it'll have to be a LOT better than a DUR or Carrack to compete.

    I went for the DUR because of its legs. Long range tanks, long range scanners, up to 4 crew and a bit of space for a vehicle. The Terrapin I just saw as somewhat limited compared to the DUR

    If youre unhappy with Spectre & Meltdown, i'm not sure where you go. Intel and AMD are both affected along with pretty much everything else out there, more or less. I still lean towards Intel because if the patches and fixes cost some of the performance, you have more to start with if youre an Intel owner. It's a shame. Intel needs decent competition just to keep it from stagnating and giving us cr*p. AMD is the only other horse in town. Or more accurately - pony compared to Intel.
