    3.6 vs. 3.5 comparison

    Greetings, citizens! I apologize for the three-day delay - I finally found a job in real life, and now I have less time to do video. However, I will not give up no matter and I will continue to please (or not) you with my new videos! Patch 3.6 brought us updates of some ships, as well as several gameplay changes, because of which this video is quite long, but I tried to make it interesting and not boring. But I need to warn you - this is not an perfect video: the process of decreasing the criminal status is shown badly (because at the same time as I filmed this, I had to defend myself against other players and the NPC). Also, a fragment on Grim-Hex is shown with a low frame rate due to pirates, who “drop” FPS because of their number near Grim-Hex - reruns to other servers didn’t help much, so I inserted the smoothest moment - which, unfortunately, is still bad in terms of performance. I apologize and I hope these factors do not hurt you to watch this video. As usual, for your convenience, I have done all the timecode codes - they are in the first fixed comment. I hope you will like it. Enjoy watching! P.S. As usual, you can support me here: Citizen Spotlight Spectrum Reddit

    Looks like we have an incoming new land vehicle set for Alpha 3.6, the Anvil Ballista with what looks like two variants. Source: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/new-vehicle-anvil-ballista-german-article Translated from the German Site: Official announcement to come sometime in the future...

    Crytek GmbH v. CIG - Motion For Bond: GRANTED [$500,000] Not as high as the requested $2.2M but half a million dollars is still a decent chunk of cash that CryTek now needs to cough up within 30 days if they wish to continue with their joke of a lawsuit. https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.cacd.696437/gov.uscourts.cacd.696437.81.0.pdf

    Origin 890 JUMP

    People in the 890 Jump Club Discord were saying that the 890 has been available from Concierge for $990 (with 6 months insurance) for the last year if you asked them if you could buy one.

    That first video is pretty nicely done. Very artistic for sure. That sketchbook looks neat. Tokyo is pretty cool, I've been there myself last year for a couple of weeks. I'd love to go back there some time. I was with friends during the winter and never made time to do some sketching, which in hindsight I'm kind of regretting. Maybe something to do if i ever go back there.

    Small update. CryTek (on behalf of both parties) has filed for protective order to keep certain confidential and/or private information from being made available as public record should they enter the Discovery phase. To me this makes sense as you wouldn't want rivals or the general public (including a certain Florida resident) making off with private/confidential information and abuse said information for their own gain. https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.cacd.696437/gov.uscourts.cacd.696437.83.0.pdf

    Some ships / vehicles - are flyable / driveable when they come out........ so you might be able to rent / multi-crew one before the concept sale is over.... like this concept sale for the Balista (++ you can see videos). I ended up CCUing for one and happy that I did

    Q&A: Anvil Ballista Following the launch of the Ballista from Anvil Aerospace, we took your community-voted questions to our designers to give you more information on the recently unveiled air defense system. The sale post mentions “ground targets”. Will this vehicle have any ground bombardment or parabolic firing mode to shoot over hills? Will it require line-of-sight to lock-on to ground targets? Currently, all targets (whether air or ground) require both a high enough signature and line-of-sight for the Ballista to be able to lock on to them. In the future, we’ll include out-of-sight targeting by transmitting target data between ships or via some sort of ‘forward operator control’. This will enable players to hit targets without a direct line-of-sight and from a much greater distance than is currently possible. Does the Ballista have any planned modularity? Swapping out the back section for a medical, exploration, or cargo variant would make it a great general ‘rover’ and one that could be used with the Carrack. At this time, no future variants are planned for production, although we’ve seen some fantastic community suggestions. The rover that comes with the Anvil Carrack is an RSI Ursa Rover, not a new Anvil Rover. How will restocking ammo work? Do we need to bring it to a landing pad, or will there be future resupplying ships and ground vehicles? Will the Vulcan be able to repair and rearm the Ballista? Currently, the Ballista needs to be taken back to an outpost, where it can be repaired and rearmed. In the future, dedicated rearming and repair vehicles (such as the Vulcan) can be used to support any ground vehicle, including the Ballista. Isn’t a range of 2000 meters too short for an anti-aircraft vehicle? The Jump Point article and brochure were completed before we had confirmed its maximum range. At this time, its effective range is 10,000 meters against most fighters (the furthest we’ve shot is 9,984 meters), after which it can no longer identify them. However, the firing range doesn’t have a cap as it’s purely by the systemic emissions of the target, so it will be even further on large ships with high infrared or electromagnetic signatures. Which ships will be able to transport the Ballista? Will a mechanic be in place to cable-lift them with, for example, the ARGOMPUV or using a tractor beam (kind of like how tanks can be transported via helicopter)? As it stands, there are only two ship series specifically designed to transport the Ballista – the Idris and the Hercules (by transport, we mean getting it entirely inside the vehicle, properly secured, and doors closed). While not officially designed to carry the Ballista, the 890 Jump’s rear cargo ramp is large enough to take it too. Ships equipped with a suitably powerful tractor beam will also be able to move it, but this comes with a higher risk than having it secured internally. Besides the included 2 x S2 guns on the turret, the stats page also lists an “optional” S2 turret. What does that mean? Another turret? More guns? This is an error in the stats page that will be resolved – the optional turret mentioned is the default-equipped turret. What kind of equipment can the Ballista carry besides the missile launcher? Will we be able to mount different sizes and types of missiles like 16 x S5 missiles, 4 x S7 torpedoes, 2 x S8 torpedoes, or 2 x S8 gun turrets? At this time, there are no plans to allow any modification to the turret loadout or to what type of turret it has equipped. Everything is quite bespoke to the vehicle in its current layout and the only customisability is in the missile loadouts themselves. Could you explain how CIG plans to balance air vs ground? Both how you see various classes of ship and vehicle performing against each other and how you plan to achieve that balance when ground vehicles size up poorly in direct comparison due to their limited mobility and smaller equipment. This is a very good question, though one that deserves more attention than is possible here. We’ll be discussing air vs ground combat in more detail in the future. Will the skins be purchasable separately? I have the ‘Snowblind’ skin but like the others as well. However, I don’t want to buy another vehicle. The skins are unique to Warbond SKUs. Concierge members get access to the Dunestalker Skin and all backers get access to the Snowblind skin. These-limited time offerings will not be able to be pledged for separately. I know the Ballista has to be parked in order to fire the torpedoes, but will the gunner seat (the one that fires the missiles right now) eventually be able to swap between the torpedoes and S2 Gatling gun and fire it while the vehicle is moving? That doesn’t seem overpowered and could come in extremely handy (and seems common sense). There is no plan for this at this moment. The person manning the missile turret (or gunner seat) has very specific control over that turret only. The driver of the vehicle can drive around and fire the Gatling turret if they choose to. The Ballista page states that the missile artillery can be used on ground targets, but can the missiles ‘free-fire’ on land without a specific target? Like targeting the general vicinity of a patch of land? All missiles in the game currently require a target lock. We don’t have any plans for missile free-fire, but it may be something more suited to less “smart” ordnance in the future. Will the Ballista be able to intercept other missiles, such as S9 torpedoes from a bomber or the Hercules’ A2 bombs? This is functionality that we want all ships to have in the future, not just the Ballista. Being able to target incoming ordnance items is critical to keeping larger ships and ground outposts intact. Of course, targeting is just part of the equation; it certainly helps to pick a suitable weapon system for the intercept. The Ballista can only fire while stationary, but what if it’s stationary aboard a moving ship? For example, on a Starlifter, Kraken, or Idris? The Ballista will still fire aboard a moving Starlifter or Idris, though we’re not sure launching missiles inside a moving ship is the safest thing to do! As for the Kraken, there’s no reason why you couldn’t fire missiles from a landing pad. However, the chance of hitting a friendly ship or part of the carrier could be quite high, particularly if it’s moving.

    Looks very cool and I'm glad CIG has decided to give us another ground vehicle made by different manufacturer for more diversity on planetside battlefields. That they chose Anvil for this has me hopeful that CIG might even make a smaller version of the Anvil Ballista at some point. For example they could make a regular 6-wheeled rover version without the missiles as an alternative option to the RSI Ursa. If so, us Anvil Carrack owners might even be able to get an Anvil rover instead of the generic RSI Ursa we were given now. --- Sorry for the link below btw but I posted such a question for the Ballista Q&A and would really love some upvotes if you guys agree with it https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/anvil-ballista-q-a/2261427 Now that CIG has the styleguide and assets for making Anvil rovers, can we expect a smaller version of the Anvil Ballista (for example a 6-wheeled version without the missile cart) to be included as an Anvil rover for the Carrack at some point instead of the RSI Ursa?

    Nice that they took the inspiration from the 9K33 system. More Soviet-inspired designs, please! As mentioned, this kind of vehicle was inevitable. Though considering its design task and the kinds of ships it can be expected to bring down, I feel the choice to make it a missile platform as opposed to a SPAAG will render it toothless with simple and effective deployment of countermeasures. I'd imagine if it were to mount something similar to a Hammerhead turret but with ballistics I'd say you have yourself a fairly effective system. But until there is a complete sensor revamp and tactics like notching become necessary and effective at evading missiles, I don't see this thing being a truly effective anti-air platform.

    This type vehicle was inevitable considering the anticipated game play. It looks as though it has the ability to take down pretty much anything in atmosphere. Too bad there't not much to fight over yet.

    Small update regarding the settlement conference which was rescheduled to the 18th of July. There was only 1 paragraph with actual info so I'll quote it below: Settlement conference held. A settlement agreement is not reached. The Court understands that the parties will continue their efforts to settle the case, and they may contact the Magistrate Judge’s CRD if they wish to schedule a further settlement conference https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.cacd.696437/gov.uscourts.cacd.696437.80.0.pdf My guess is that CryTek demanded ridiculous amount of money and naturally CIG refused as CryTek has nothing substantial to sue over anymore. Then CIG made them a much lower but more reasonable offer (or maybe even demanded that CryTek pay CIG for wasting their time with this frivolous lawsuit) and CryTek refused. If CryTek does want to continue settlement talks (unlikely as they never made any genuine attempt before) and both parties can come to an agreement we likely won't hear much (if anything at all) apart from a notification that the case is settled and closed. Otherwise I suspect that the next entry we'll get is the Judge's ruling on the Motion for Bond.

    I like the price points you've outlined, @Reavern and the reasoning too (great points!), but I think realistically they will be at least $50 greater than those if not the other higher price points you mentioned in your post. It seems CIG doesn't follow any really great guidelines on pricing other than if it's bigger or people want it more than give it a bigger price. I was predicting the C2 version would be around $250-$300, the M2 version at $300-$350, and the A2 version at $350-$400.

    Wow, it truly is a space truck in every sense. These ships are amazing. I am surprised that none of these include a hangar, which is odd because I believe every concept sale so far has had a hangar within the package. it sort of feels we're getting less for the same value as some other ships that were previously on sale. that said... I'm really tempted to get either the B or the C.
