    Greetings, Imperium. II'm a 36 year old male from Toronto, Canada (EST) that goes by the callsign Jaxx. Ive been a backer to Star Citizen since 2017, but followed the project years prior. I currently pledge an Ares Inferno and Cutlass Black, though Ive also owned a Freelancer, 315, Aurora, ROC, Prospector, and Pieces in the past. I find that my gaming strengths tend to lean into a FPS role, but Im hoping to improve my dog fighting as time passes and hardware upgrades allow. I am hoping to join your ranks in a casual role, ramping up as events in game pick up. I look forward to joining you in t

  3. RSI Scorpius looks cool, but it's definitely not a Heavy Fighter. To me it's effectively just an RSI version of the Hurricane (Medium Fighter). Personally if CIG really wanted it to be a Heavy Fighter to compete against actual Heavy Fighters like the Vanguard series and Ares Starfighter I think you should swap those Small components out for Medium sized components. With just Small components it's just an overpriced Medium Fighter in my opinion. So yeah, I'd definitely suggest CIG take another look at it while it's moving through production and swap those Small components out for M

  4. As it stands now I probably won't get the ship since I will not melt the Aopoa San'Tok.Yai and not my F8 Lighting + I like the Harbinger and Redeemer (though these are not heavy fighters).... however.... my track record of "trying" to talk myself out of throwing more money to CIG has been VERY .... very... poor in terms of holding onto my money .... when the concept comes out.... and I end up Theory Crafting a reason (or an Emotional - have to have it) - to get the ship 😜

  5. The pricing is insane. For everything even mugs a plain white with a brand logo cost around 30! The ships are priced way too high. 40-60 for just the bare bones starter ship. Of course there is no practical design eg the simple exiting from the ship carrack, starlifter, reclaimer etc etc. Yes, I am guilty for buying so many ships. I remember back in the kickstarter days I said "only the one ship will do me fine". Yeah that didn't last long. Anyway I have my MM, I mean I have the right to play with it but not truly own it. <end rant>

    New to the game

    Hey guys, stumbled across this game called star citizen and trying to figure out what it is all about? Do I throw money at it? Where is the single player game? Why haven't they brought back the greatest patch ever in 1.3? Why does Imperium sound like a regime of the Soviet Union?

  7. Well, at the moment I have a C2 loaner because Customer Support was willing to separate the M2 CCU that I had applied prematurely so it turned my ship back into a BMM. After seeing that it had no kitchen (which they did show in the Subscriber Area to make people assume it was standard on all models) I'd rather get the C2 now. I also noticed something wierd with the M2. First the front gun felt tacked on, as if they had run out of time. Then I also noticed that it only had 8 escape pods even though there is 3 crew and 12 jumpseats (15 people total). Lastly I saw that the armory only has 8

  8. Initially I was completely sold on the Hercules M2. It was supposed to have the same amenities as the C2 but with additional armor and an extra turret at the cost of 25% cargo capacity. During a monthly report they even stated that it had "gained a room for jumpseats for the vehicle crew" and I assumed that this was a room in the upper area where the C2 would have its extra cargo space. What I did NOT factor in was that the only way the M2 'gained' a room was by ripping out the crew rec rooms and kitchen completely! That was really some crappy word twisting. I mean, if I rip the kitchen o

  9. That's true but why didn't CIG just lead with that? Advertise it as a Medium Fighter and then show some art of it getting launched out of a Polaris? Instead they are now trying to pull the same stunt as they did with the Hurricane concept sale where they were pretending it was a Heavy Fighter during the sale but once ingame it's just a Medium Fighter with small components. In addition to that they charged the same amount of cash for the Scorpius ($220) as they did with the Ares Starfighter; an actual Heavy Fighter with a full set of Medium components. I still remember that tal

  11. I was expecting bigger components for a heavy fighter (think Ares or Vanguards). Cool concept, not sure it's worth getting rid of my SuperHornet yet. For the same price, I can get an Ares Inferno which I like a lot too.

  14. From what I've read people in general are very happy with those T16000 sticks; especially because they are pretty easy on the wallet. Definitely don't go with the T.Flight Hotax-X though. It may look cool and compact (and from the same manufacturer) but I've used that one on the past and it had really poor precision. Currently I have 2 Constellation Alpha sticks from Virpil (one left and one right). I really wanted something high-end and scifi looking. Initially I was looking for the Constellation Delta but then while I was still saving up money they announced the u

  15. Yeah, regarding mugs you're much better off just finding a printshop in your own country and get them to make custom mugs for you. I also doubt those official CIG mugs are of any high quality either as sadly most of their stuff is often ordered from the cheapest manufacturers they can find in China. I ordered these from Vistaprint in the Netherlands years ago and they are still in perfect condition even though I've been using them for quite some time. On topic for the Merchantman I'm glad Customer Support wanted to help out and removed the "Merchantman-to-Hercules M2" C

    Hull-A Greetings Citizens, We thought we’d try something a little different with the Hull series: we’re focusing on a different model each day, collecting all the existing art and fiction and answering some of your questions wherever possible! Tomorrow, we’ll highlight the Hull B, Wednesday the Hull C, Thursday the Hull D and Friday the Hull E.

  18. I picked up an Ares Ion to Xi'an Railen CCU for $5.00. If I apply it to one of my CCU chains from the last few sales the total price should come out to $160. That puts it in direct competition with the RSI Connie Taurus. I totally agree with you @Danakar Endeel with regard to the alien tax, but I think I will hold on to the CCU and see how it pans out. MB

    I'm not an alien-ship design lover either. I'll stick to the normal ships that I'm used to. That said, the concept is really cool, and I'm glad that they (CIG) is expanding the norms in the 'Verse! Now if they could take some of those cool affects and features and apply them to all the other ships, that would greeeeeaaaat...

    Hmmm... Decisions, decisions... Seriously though, if anyone here wants to buy the Railen because they like the look of it go right ahead and I really hope you will get a lot of enjoyment out of it. For me, I just don't feel anything for these alien ships. Perhaps this has something to do with CIG slapping this wierd +$50 to +$100 'Alien Tax' on most of them but yeah. The Railen is basically a cheaper C2 with higher crew requirements with a lower (external) cargo carrying capacity, a mix of M and L size components, and lower defensive capabilities. Personally

  23. The Polaris lost its limited status recently during the Invictus sale. This has been the only capital or sub-cap sized ship that has held any interest for me (that may change with the rumored Anvil capital ship), mostly for the hangar that I can use to house another ship. I'm not interested in the Polaris for the combat (although I can use it for that too) but more for a "home-away-from-home" ship to get me around, explore a little, and possibly do some search and rescue. I also wondered about using the Polaris as a (very expensive) military transport ship--kind of like the 890Jump but

  28. Thanks for the video but unfortunately that only talks about how the single entry was an oversight that should not have happened and that they might go back to it someday and use that dead space in the starboard section near the cockpit for one. I did not hear anything about any escape pods getting added for the crew; even though it's a standard safety feature onboard the C2 and M2. The C2 has 2 escape pods while the M2 has a whopping 8 for some reason. I suspect they gave the M2 8 escape pods because the A2 also has a crew of 8 and they didn't want to bother changing it again for that variant

  29. I think a dual stick setup is going to be better than stick & throttle for Star Citizen. I've never tried dual sticks, but the game is definitely being optimized for it and most reviewers like the setup after a bit of practice. One of these days I'm going to mimic this Morphologis setup:

  30. Never own the T-16000M, but played with people that do, they were all happy with it. Nevertheless most have or are changing to VKB's tho to the feel and increased precision. If you never had dualsticks you better off getting the T-16000M and see if you like to use dualstick, depending on how you treat them they'll last 2 to 4 years without any major problems (according to my mates) .

  31. Apparently CIG no longer waits for questions from the community and has now just posted their own Q&A without community input. Can the turret be controlled by the pilot? If so, does it fire in conjunction with the forward-facing weapons or is it controlled separately? Not by default. However, as it’s a remote turret, it will be able to be ‘slaved’ by a computer blade in the future, where it will be locked facing forward in the upper position. Is the turret fixed to one of two positions (upper, forward-facing/lower, rear-facing), or is it

  35. Also saw this image over on Reddit and thought I'd share. Looks quite similar to a certain trench run in another galaxy far far away doesn't it? Seems CIG is being a bit on-the-nose with this ship. Luckily it only looks like an X-Wing from this angle so they should be safe from Disney lawyers. If you zoom in you can also see the 2-seats in the cockpit (credits to @TheGameBoi over on Spectrum for spotting it first).

  36. Heh heh... Well, you could just do like me and simply get a $5-$10 CCU to the Scorpius and simply sit on it. That's what I've been doing for quite a while now. I think the last ship I actually purchased outright was the Ares Inferno warbond. The rest of my purchases were mostly just inexpensive CCUs. Then CIG also started offering discounted Warbond CCUs since the last Anniversary sale and it gave me a taste to make CCU-chains. Managed to make the a CCU-chain to a Hercules M2 for just $195 with those new Warbond CCUs and some leftover CCUs I still had in my inventory. Now I must admit th

  37. Star Wars fans probably won't have an issue with it. Those detractors sitting on that so-called 'refund' subreddit on the other hand might try to latch onto it with their mock outrage claiming that it's "an X-Wing ripoff" and pretending that Disney is already filing a lawsuit or some other such nonsense. I mean, just because a ship has 4 wings doesn't make it an X-Wing and it looks like the Scorpius can fold its wings in multiple directions whereas the X-Wing's s-foils were limited into just flight position and attack position. There's also very little similarity between the two ships an

  39. What, it will still be in the old price, even if the price of the Orion only went up to, let's say, $605, for a $5 difference with the Carrack's new Price $600, you would still pay $75 even if you used store credits, when you initially bought the CCU? Keeping to the same price is okay, if the gap had gone bigger than $75 and you still only have to pay $75 to buy it back, that would be nice. When I bought those C2 CCUs, I was analyzing the likelihood of either or both of those FROM ships (Crucible / Endeavor) increasing in price might still be unlikely to happen before ILW and IAE, I ju

  42. That is not entirely the case, see what i said after in previous post. If the FROM ship is the one not yet released, the price will be adjusted. For example, last Alien week, Merchantman raised from 350$ to 450$. If you had a Starfarer Gemini (340) to BMM (350), it is still 10$ if you buy it back now. if you buy back now a BMM to lets say carrack (600), CCU was 250, it is now 150, as long as CCU was bought with store credit originally. This is not true 100% of the time though. My Hull-E example above still works because Hull-E (650) is still more expensive than Carrack (600), but is a

  43. After seeing the PTU images trickling in I think that the M2 feels lacking; especially considering the massive +$120 price difference. Instead of a rec room and kitchen for the ship crew that area is replaced with 12 jumpseats (do we even need that many seats?) and an armory. We were told these seats were for the vehicle crew so why is there a need for an additional armory? Wouldn't those troops have their weapons stored in their vehicles already? Instead of an extra armory this ship should have had a kitchen; especially considering the increased number of people onboard. To me

  44. Just as an aside, this is typical Chris Roberts. Whenever he announced a new game, as followers, we made throat noises, because it meant we were fixing to upgrade our machines. He didn't compromise and pushed for the best resolution and performance currently available. i5, i7, i9, instead of 8080, 386, 486, but even as things change, they are the same. - DRUM out
