  1. Welcome back Mark, There is a distinct likelyhood that these vessels and many more shall become available once again during Star Citizen's Anniversary where they have a massive unvault on ships. While you will not be able to achieve lifetime insurance, this would be your best bet for attaining the ship. As I've explained in a previous post, here, there are optimized ways of attaining figuratively "more" in Star Citizen for the same price, through careful planning and patience. While Ebay is certainly a valid avenue which (with enough digging) could yield better results, the Above methods remain tried and tested. Additionally with November now less than 2 months away, the Anniversary Sale is upon us. Whichever avenue you pursue, I wish you luck in your enveavor(s). See you in the 'verse.
  2. If the Carrack can fit an Ursa Rover, it should be able to fit most vehicles. The cargo section is quite sizable which means leeway when it comes to these things. In terms of loading the cargo bay, look to classical designs such as the Constellation and 890 Jump. Elevators would appear to be the popular avenue for CIG's Cargo Loading solutions. Nothing wrong with that either, since larger ships such as the Carrack and the Hammerhead honestly need all the clearance they can get. It wont do you too good to be unable to land when you get your destination of choice, now will it? Edit: And after revisiting that video I am reminded that they've still opted for a lower Carrack with ramps. We're still getting a massive cargo hold on her though.

  5. Hello Niles, Weather you are waiting for the game to come out before playing it or are playing it right now, it is important to have a ship that you feel at home in. For me, that would be both my Endeavor and my Corsair. For you, on the other hand, and this is really the question that matters, I can't say. The first thing I would put to you is which ship do you really see yourself flying in, or at the very least, spending the majority of your gameplay time in? From what you've said in your above post, you are considering an alternative to the Starfarer. I'd recommend you take a look at the ships listed at this website (all the ships are in one place here) and see which ones you fancy. I'd also ask the while an upgrade isn't a bad idea, you'll have more options open to you if you consider a downgrade as well. You'd have to melt the package down, but you'd get in-store credit as a return, and for the Starfarer Gemeni, you'd have enough store credit from the package to choose from a very large selection of ships. I should add however, that melting down the LTI Package will mean loosing the LTI. Additionally, if the Starfarer Gemeni is part of a game package, you will loose the package upon melting it (if it came with Squadron 42, you will need to purchase it separately from game packages after you do this). It's not a decision to be made lightly, but it's easy enough to get it back. I'm going to assume that you are only interested in the Persistent Universe portion of the game. If you want to change right now: Buy a starter package. It's $45 US for a starter ship and access to Persistent Universe. Your options are the Aurora MR and the Mustang Alpha. Buy the Anvil Ballistia for the LTI Upgrade the Anvil Ballistia to a ship of your preference. (Bear in mind, ship selection is limited outside of special events) If you want to wait: Wait to melt down until a cheaper LTI option presents itself. Buy a package during the Anniversary Sale. You'll have a lot of options here. If the package doesn't contain the ship you want, upgrade it. (Starter Packages during last years Anniversary Sale were as low as $15 US , this likely will happen again this year) Now of course I can't promise that a cheaper LTI option will turn up at all, however, a new ships will come out, and you might fall in love with one, in which case, that's a likely LTI option right there. This guide isn't 100%. Things will change in the future. At the end of the day Keeping or Upgrading the Starfarer Gemeni is the safest option. That being said however, you do have options. If you want to know how ships feel, hop into the teamspeak and join us in the 'verse. I think I speak for everyone when I say that we'd be more than happy to let you experience a ship first hand and join us for some fun. To answer your second question: I simply don't have an answer. Currently they've reduced the overall cost of ships in the Alpha so that they are more obtainable during the course of the patch. I can guarantee that the current prices do not reflect the prices planned for the ships upon release. In terms of making money, Missions, Mining, Combat, and Trading are currently in the game in a limited capacity (some being more done than others). I can only speculate about the state of the Economy upon release. I hope this helps you make the most informed decision you can. Make sure anything you do is the most fun for you. Weather or not you decide to play today or upon the release, we look forward to seeing you in the 'verse.
  6. Is this what love looks like?
  7. I mean it's on the expensive side, but I've been using a nice pair of Turtle Beach Z-300's for about 5 years now and they still work wonderfully. Excellent sound quality and mic quality. They've survived multiple trips over the pacific as well. I'm actually surprised since other turtle beach products which I've owned in the past have crapped out on me after a short while. For me, the Z-300's work great, but it might be that I got extremely lucky here. (This means I recommend with a grain of salt)
  8. Yeah, I'm really glad to see that the Carrack got smaller. Having a 170m long ship try to force it's way through jump holes is a bit outlandish, but I can see this happening on the new Carrack. Getting rid of all the halls and shrinking the rooms (in space, but not content) really emphasises that the Carrack is a purpose built ship for long range expedition, that at times, cold lead to extended separation from the rest of civilization. I can't wait to see this out in the 'verse next year!

  10. So I was browsing my YouTube video feed when this precious gem popped up. It's more or less a full tour of the current iteration of the Aegis Idris. Due to the nature of the ship, this is a massive spoiler for Squadron 42, but I'm sure most of you are itching to see what she looks like. Here you guys go!
  11. Though generally you're going to slow down when that No-Fly-Zone blip starts flashing on your screen. Pilots die in Loreville less to crashing and more to being shot down by space law.
