Constellation Pilot, seeks similar

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just figure that posting here might help people do the same.

I bought the Constellation recently, as a Christmas present to myself (yeah, sad :P ) and figured that I would see who else got one. Its by no means a matcho thing, just purely a fact finding, see how people like it, or not.

Would be cool to get a group of people together and fly out as a swarm of Constellations, or any other big ships we can get from now until then. :ugeek:

So, lets talk! :)

The constellation package is currently the only ship package I have, although I might pick up a secondary one depending on what else becomes available.

I particularly like the bigger multi-crew ships, so I'll probably be preferring either running my Constellation or acting as crew on someone else's.

The rear admiral package was the first package I picked as well.
Love the idea of having my own support fighter for when traveling gets hot! :)
I can't wait to see what they do with the variants for the Connie. I have always felt that the internal layout could be done better...

This is excellent! I was thinking of it like what I'd done previously, in the original Planetside. We would get a group of Prowlers up, (big tanks), and just hit a zone, Either it was aggressive and we attacked, defended, or would find something we knew would be critical in taking a planet, sit and kite people into over running, into a group of tanks. Always a fun night, for sure.

This also means, guys who do not have the cash to splurge, still get to experience the greater part of the game (not saying Constellation is the be all, just simply that group play is better than solo, in most cases)

I too will be getting the connie.... should be next week.... or the week after that at the latest.... i will however be getting the freelancer as well... as for the third ship, im stuck between the avenger and the 315p.... i am more leaning towards the avenger, as it seems more better suited for bounty hunter work, and i plan on running a few bounties....

Also have the Rear Admiral Constellation. Would love to get together and do some exploring. When I don't feel like getting a crew together I also picked up a 315p and a 325a for escorting. I was also be looking at renting out ships when the time comes so if any of you want to rent if/when its allowed I will have some ships right off the bat for rent if you want a test flight or something. Looking forward to this game so much I cant wait but I am going to have to. sigh.

i am curious as to why you got both the 315p, and the 325a.... what your thoughts were on it, and input...

in my opinion if i were to get one of the 300series, which i have looked at, would choose just the 315p. it comes stock with the tractor, and jump engine. it still has all the same hardpoint spots, so you could get the weapons from voyager direct, and still outfit it with just as much firepower, and have the jump engine at your disposal, and have the option to switch between the mass driver, and the tractor.... atleast thats why i would choose the 315p over all the other 300's....

yes, def will have to crew together some time, really am looking forward to it....

The main thing for me was the WillsOp Custom Weapons System in the 325a. Felt It would be a better escort ship for those long runs and when I just want to go solo exploration I would still have the 315p. Another plus I felt from doing this was, sure I could go buy the weapons but I wasn't sure I could upgrade the core features (Jump scanner and weapons system), so I felt that until more information was released I would get them both. Also can rent one if I feel as though I didn't need one or the other for a span of time.

If I can swap out these main systems its not a big deal to melt a ship down and get, lets say, TNGS! :D

I went with the 325a because I wanted a fighter. Could have gone with the Hornet but I didn't want the pure fighter, was looking for a fighter that could lift a bit of cargo and also travel longer distances. I never looked to the 315p because if I want to explore I'll probably take the Freelancer, bigger engines, better cargo hold and alot of firepower. The 315 looks a bit short to furfill the explorer job.

The 315P would be a light explorer when you do not want to leave a trail. Pirates will see the trail of a Freelancer on the radar easier than the 315P so it is a good ship if you just want to go out and be left alone for awhile.

Well, I know what you mean, but I'm pretty sure scans can pick a 315P aswell, unless they have a stealth mechanism like the Hornet Ghost. This is just my personal opinion on the 315P, it wouldn't be my first choice for an exploration ship...I would rather pick up a Freelancer or a Cutlass

I would also prefer the Freelancer, but the way they have talked about the radar is that the smaller ship leaves smaller trails. This leads me to assume that it may in fact be harder to pick up a 315P over a Freelancer by the way they set up the radar system. This may be the distance it can be detected from or how well it is detected at any distance.. not quite sure on that yet.

There are 3 types of signatures to be aware of Radar, Heat, EM. Size will help with radar but if you're scanning for jump points with the 315P, you're EM signature will be high and light you up for people who are scanning for that.

I love these 4 engine ships, they remind me of the USCSS Prometheus, from Prometheus - an awesome looking ship. I am hoping that the Constellation has long range capabilities, anyone for exploration?

the osiris is just fan made chance for it to get in is small.
also i don't think its bigger i guess its about the same higher but shorter.
none the less good design.
have not really figered it out where they leave the weaponary ?

I myself went for the constalation for the exploring part
its long range vessle
loads of fire power
and just fun to explore with.
big gargohold
grocery ships place in second gargohold
can drive buggy's and equipment in it or a lot of cargo.

its a multi purpose vessle and thus i see it as best buy , although it needs a lot of extra work still to be done to make it all fuction.

for the fun of it i also bougt the avenger ... as it has 4 cryo stasis lock ups its great to transport or smuggle people in it and it has a nice cargo aswell.
the looks let me think its a old space shuttle... so ill have fun with it.
also this avenger needs a lot of work still ,,, not possible to get in a cryo stasis box and it seems the cabin door does not open to the pilot --> instead i go straight thruh the door.


also bought electro skin and black pirate skin have to see how that is going to work out.... on the connie.

greets Q
