    The Status of INN

    Hey guys, Zhane here - wanted to drop a quick note to let everyone know what's up with INN. Leadership has been in the loop but I realized there hadn't been much from me straight to you guys since I posted that I needed to take a week off, about a month ago! I won't bore you with all the details, but my mother has been very ill and with no other immediate family in the area it's been up to me to support and care for her. As of right now she's still in the hospital, but we're hoping to transition her to a physical rehab facility soon as she continues to recover. She's doing well and will make a full recovery! Her process back to health is just taking time, and it's important to both me and her that I be there as much as I can to support her and serve as her advocate when it comes to health related choices. So, while the majority of my time and all of my energy is focused on my mother's recovery, INN has been on hiatus. I do apologize, and while things are improving, I still don't have a lot of time to devote to covering the news right now. Have no fear, however, INN will be back just as soon as I'm able to resume a regular schedule. Thanks for your understanding and patience. - Zhane Editor, Imperium News Network

    I Got the Job!

    Over the last two months, I've gone through 4 face-to-face interviews and 1 phone interview with a large company. I've been stressed out these past two months on both preparations, if I could have done better, and so on. Well as of today, I got the job! I’m so god damn happy I could shout (but probably shouldn’t – I’m in a cube farm). This means so much to me, and while I’ve known some of you guys for 1-2 years, I realize this isn’t a big deal to you but I still wanted to put my excitement down in writing. Hmm… maybe now I can start investing and thinking of my future…. NAAAAHHHH, Star Citizen ships here I come! not seriously but seriously

    Anniversary Sale Tips and Tricks

    'Sup Imperium and Guests, Since we're just about 2 weeks away from the anniversary sale, I thought I'd share some tips and tricks in case limited ships (i.e. Javelin, Idris, 890J, Phoenix) are sold in the same manner as last year. While there hasn't been any confirmation of these ships being sold in the coming weeks, there most certainly hasn't been any denial, nor has there been any word on a new method of selling off limited ships outside of the refresh contest most of us took part in last time. So, here is: Sir_Belial's Bulletproof Plan to Buy Bad-Ass Ships* Section 1: Prepare Check Your Browser Settings Most browsers have an auto-fill option for certain websites that you visit most often. By checking if your browser is able to save names, addresses, and contact info that will need to be inputted during the limited sale, you can save yourself potential heartache and stress when the race to buy a ship begins. By being able to click once in an empty field, and have every other section automatically filled, you will be almost minutes ahead of thousands of poor souls that did not take such precautions. During the sale, it will be required to chuckle at their misfortune as you move onto the payment options page. Clear Your Schedule For those that truly are willing to stay awake for each of the 6 hour batches of ships, make some space on your calendar. Your priority is going to be the time the first batch goes live, as it will be the one that takes the longest time to be sold. You'll have the chance to select your CCU option, fill in your info, and select your payment option before the worst can happen. However, should you miss the chance to finish checkout, you'll want to be ready when the next ship batch goes live. Many F5 warriors last year were disheveled when they discovered they weren't able to even input their info when the second or third batches were live. That is because those that had inputted their info during the first batch were able to remain on the payment page, and as a result, none of the remaining batches were live for more than 6 seconds. The early bird catches the worm, and deciding to wait for later batches WILL ensure that you get nothing during the rarer ship sales. Call Your Bank Trying to beat out thousands of strangers to get a chance of buying a beautiful, rare spaceship is stressful. It puts strain on your heart, and will definitely age you by a few decades when all is said and done. In order to help prevent this, you should contact your credit card company/bank to ensure that any perverse transactions on the sale week/weekend will be approved. You do NOT want to be staring at the finalization screen after grabbing your prize only to be notified of a failed transaction. It sucks, take my word for it. Do yourself a solid, and get that taken care of now. For those of you that are planning to melt some ships to try and bring down the cost, keep reading. I got some bad news bruh. Choose Your Payment Option Ahead of Time When the floodgates are opened, and thousands of backers mash their F5 keys on the ship page at once, you will realize that buying the ship you want is a race against countless opponents. Every second counts, as your ultimate goal is to finish all the payment steps during the release of the first batch of limited ships. Something that was discovered last year during the Javelin sale, though it isn't too well known, is that if you use PayPal, your ship will be reserved while you enter your payment information. That's right. While others will need to input their credit card info, or wait for verification from stripe or be redirected to amazon, your ship will be reserved as you are sent to the PayPal payment screen. As exciting as this is, it brings bad news as well. All those other payment options are a little defunct in this "first come, first serve" scenario. This includes store credits via melted ships. The amount of time it takes to register the change due to adding store credits to the cost will delay the transaction long enough to where all the ships in the batch will be gone. It's true. A little loading screen pops up, you scream a little, an error "stock is empty" screen replaces the first, and then you scream a lot. Personal experience, that's where this comes from. Take the safe, if more expensive route, and use PayPal to pay the full amount. The happiness you'll feel directly after will outweigh the coming stress of taking on a fourth mortgage on your home. Section 2: What Will Happen During the Limited Sale At this point, you're probably a few days away from the sale, so let's go over how things should go, in a perfect world, above-average world, and non-perfect-why-must-I-suffer world. So, first up, the Perfect World: You've taken every precaution mentioned above, and even then some. You've prepared to wake up half and hour before the launch of the first batch, you set up a notification system (https://visualping.io/) to inform you of changes on pages in-case it updates a little early, and your finger is hovering over the F5 key ready to begin battle. Several of your credit/debit cards are prepared for extremely large charges, just in case one doesn't cut it, and your PayPal account is logged in on another tab. Time passes, the ship page updates (though you've been pressing F5 for the 5 minutes prior), and you begin. You click Add to Cart, then Checkout Your Customer Info is already saved, as well as your billing info. Double check State/Province, sometimes it won't auto-fill. You select "PayPal" in payment method, agree to the ToS, then "Place order and Pay" The page redirects you to the PayPal authorization page, and you can take a breath of relief. Laugh at your fortune, as well as those that are reading the "out of stock" error code. You have won, and only a few others can join you for this celebration. You finish the authorization, return to the RSI page, and immediately go to "My Hangar". There she is, one of the rarest ships ever sold. All yours. Your precious. Laugh it up, Smeegle, you've done it. As a bonus step, parade the following certificate in any forums you frequent. It is guaranteed to be well received. (DL at bottom) Above-Average World: You did everything mentioned above in the Perfect World, but as soon as you hit "Place order and Pay", the worst happened. A RED error message popped up, informing you the ship was out of stock. Let the despair wash over you. Panic if you must, just do not close that page. Your challenge is about to begin, young samurai. Though it seems the impossible lies before you, checking out in under 6 seconds is not as daunting as it seems. There is a secret method, passed down to me as I now pass down to you, which almost assured success to those that used it. The Enter/Return Key, when held down, will close the error message and retry to place an order. This means that as long as you continuously hold down that key a minute or two prior to the second batch release, your order will be continuously pinged to the server until the millisecond that batch is opened. At that moment, your flash of error/loading screens will be replaced with a PayPal authorization page. If you must, continue this method for the other batches as well. As long as the place order and pay screen is not closed, you will be able take part in the batch sales. Bonus points for grabbing one of the last batches. Your heart will never pound so hard again, trust me. It'll be a rough 24 hours, though. Oh, and feel free to use the certificate above. As far as I'm concerned, you went through much more hell than mister perfect up there. Oh-God-Why-Are-You-Doing-This-To-Me World: Everything went as it should have, but for some reason you just couldn't get to that promised land of "Peigh Pell", though you wandered just as much as everyone else. That sucks, bro, it really does. I only have two choices for you: Accept your loss and move on. There will be the next sale and the PU for you to get your grubby little hands on a shiny ship, and while the waste of time does make you a little sad, you know you tried your best, even if the universe had it out for you. Keep your chin up, bud, for there still is hope. Last year several limited ships were actually available again after some transactions failed, and if you kept that page monitor plug-in installed, you just might catch one. Don't accept your loss and complain to everyone. Damn scripts and people that use them can't fight fair I can't believe CIG let this happen AGAIN they said it wouldn't happen like really how does a batch of 50 ships sell out in 5 SECONDS what the hell I've already sent like, 10 tickets to concierge demanding a token to spend thousands of dollars why won't they let me spend thousands of dollars who do they think they are to deny my thousands of dollars I just want to spend thousands of dollars geezus. Your knowledge of coding is impeccable, and you are sure to share your opinion with every thread on every website you can think of, especially the ones that have those stupid certificates on them, I mean what kind of conceited person would even display one of those. It doesn't matter the type of person you come off as, your PO'd. It may be true that nobody likes a sore loser, but damned if you're not gonna make everyone hate you; they'll feel the same sadness and disgust you did, and you'll make sure of it. Good luck, little buddy, and keep a few spare caps lock keys nearby. All in all, I hoped you enjoyed the read. I wish those that enter the gauntlet luck in their pursuits, now and when sale-time comes. I hope this helps (and I really hope that enter key thing still works with the new site layout, but we won't know until batch 01) If you have any additions, toss 'em out in the open; the goal of this was to help those that were unlucky last year have a fighting chance in a few weeks, so if there are any methods not touched, let's hear them. Also, spread the guide if you want, but everyone that reads it will be a potential enemy come the sale, even if we as Imperium share ships. This guide is really meant for those ships that will be released in extremely small quantities, like the Javelin was last year (50 per 6 hours). Though because there are so many more citizens that are eager to buy limited ships compared to the last anniversary sale, the methods described above might be some of the best options for potential buyers of any limited ship; Phoenix, 890J, Idris, and Javelin. I don't think we'll see a trailing-off of batch numbers as we saw when the Phoenix and 890J were first sold, when it took almost a week for the final batches to sell out, but that's just my two cents. *By using this guide successfully, you agree to engrave on a plaque to be placed inside the bridge of your new ships: "Thanks be to Sir_Belial, for he hath bestowed upon us the tools to claim our rightful property. May he grace this location and see our thanks as you do now." The addition of private quarters usable by myself, Sir_Belial, is also welcome. Fancy Schmancy Ship Owner.pdf

    Ok huys, so after a long day in the hot sun drinking beers and talking to CIG, I have finally made it to my hotel to write this up. Now unfortunately like all good plans something went wrong and I had no internet access out and about, so I was unable to find out the questions some of you wanted answering, but I did get to spend a good half hour or so in a group of about 6 of us talking to Erin Roberts. Here is a summary of what I learned. First off, the [Redacted] Hangar sale x2 tomorrow, only 1 ship is from Foundry 42. That is the Gladius, and Erin stated that it is one of his personal favourites as it looks awesome (his words). I wasn't able to get confirmation of the other, but with the hints in the past it is lily the Mustang & variants. Erin stated that the Retaliator and Gladiator are looking good and very very close, but just not yet (Maybe something for the end of this month). I also had a bit of a discussion about the Idris and Sq 42. First off, the Idris can fit 4 Gladius fighters. Whether or not that means 4 hornets too, I'm unsure but 4 Gladius for sure. Erin said that ATM they are going through the greybox process on the Idris, and that they expect it to be hangar ready some time early next year (Around Q1 2015). For squadron 42, we were told we won't get to fly off/on a Bengal until some time around Chapter 3 in the Campaign (Hence why the Idris is being fastracked). The Idris will be our primary ship until that time. Each chapter of the Sq42 campaign is being planned to be similar to the length of a normal AAA game (8-10hrs), and in total they are planning somewhere around 150 missions for the campaign as a whole. Sq42 will also feature FPS based missions on planetside environments and (possibly) within ships - I didn't hear well at that part as it was noisy. Finally patch 9.2.2 is planned for tomorrow, and will among other things (Such as the Gladius etc.) bring some joystick/controller optimisations as well as BIGGER MAPS!!! Talking to both Chris and Erin, they both feel that while the forums can be whiney, it's one of the best projects they've ever worked on and the LOVE the inbstant feedback they can get (Erin was saying they watch twitch streams the moment they drop a patch so they can see what everyone's initial reactions to the patch were). I also got a quick word to Travis Day, and they have not ruled for or against when it comes to having Kangaroos and space Kangaroos in the PU. I will update this thread with more info tomorrow as I find out (will have net access this time hopefully). I'm planning on trying to get a few more FPS sort of questions too tomorrow!

    Twas The Night Before Dogfighting...

    Twas’ the night before dogfighting, when all thro’ the house, Not a H.O.T.A.S was stirring, not Keyboard, nor Mouse; My desk was all clean, arranged neatly with care, I polished my monitor and adjusted my chair; Gamers were all nestled, snug in their beds, While visions of Auroras, danced in their heads; While Mama in her CIG t-shirt, and I in matching cap, Had just settled down, for a long restless nap; When over at my desk, there rose such a clatter, I sprung from my bed, to see what was the matter; Away to the desk, I flew like a flash, I powered on the monitor, hoping it wouldn’t crash; The light from my screensaver of new fallen snow, Gave the luster of midday to the keyboard below; When what to my wondering eyes should appear? But a blink on my taskbar, that nearly brought me to tears; Excited and nervous I had to be quick, I scrolled over the icon, and opened it with a click; More rapid that eagles, the file downloads they came, They were moving so quick, I could barely see their names; One kilobyte, two megabytes three Gigabytes, more, As the download kept going, I sat on the floor; I could barely contain myself as I stood up against the wall, I turned off my cellphone, don’t want any calls; As dry leaves before the wild hurricane fly, The download was finished, and I let out a sigh; I raced to my chair, and clicked the launch button too, The load screen popped up, and I couldn’t wait to see what was new; Then in the hanger, I saw my character race to the cock-pit, He threw on his helmet and grabbed on to his flight stick; Away my Hornet rose, as it lifted off into the night, My HUD indicated the first victim, now it’s time to dogfight!

    The following is a non-negotiable policy from SCB forum admins. Due to the change in CIG policy in relation to worldwide sales and VAT applications on purchases of Star Citizen pledge Ships, Packages, and physical goods, and in order to maintain compliance with international tax regulations, posts offering 'purchasing services' or something similar that offer to purchase ships for EU users in order to help them avoid the European Union VAT implemented on 01 February 2015 are not allowed and any posts advertising or implying these services will be removed. We ask that any marketplace sellers, whether they be Reddit stores or single sellers refrain from attempting to circumvent these rules by offering VAT-free ship purchasing services via PM to members in the EU as these actions would be considered tax evasion in the European Union. Violators of these rules run the risk of being banned and having their information provided to authorities if site administrators are compelled by enforcement bodies to do so. Thank you all for your understanding. Additional policy statement: Due to the large number of sale threads that have recently popped offering ships AT or BELOW cost DURING the concept sales, we wish to clarify that ANY posts offering such services or sales DURING a concept sale will be covered under this policy as they act as a de-facto method of providing a VAT evasion service. Any threads offering to purchase or sell ships AT or BELOW cost DURING a concept sale will be hidden until the end of the sale, at which point the author is welcome to re-list for sales of stocks available in-hangar, or they can request the original post be unhidden.

    Game Day (3.0?) July 29th

    Hello @Imperium Members! I would like to make an announcement regarding the next two Imperium Game Day’s activities. As you may know already Patch 3.0 is (not so rapidly) approaching and it’s within the realm of possibility that the next scheduled Game Day may fall on a date where PTU is out of Evocati and semi-public. It’s reasonable to expect some sort of layered release as usual and not everyone will have access at the same time. With that said here are the contingencies for the next Game Day. Game Day for July will take place on the 29th. If 3.0 is not in a semi-public PTU or still with Evocati we will treat this month’s Game Day as a last attempt to get some practice in on our EVA, FPS, and Flight skills before 3.0. You can expect the usual, Star Marine, Flight Training, Game modes like, Zombie mode, Drunken Citizen, etc.. If 3.0 is in semi-public PTU we will be indulging the patience of those who have been foaming at the mouth for months and will prioritize playing 3.0 and streaming it for those who might not yet have access. If in some unholy change of events Chris holds an impromptu naked drunken late night stream and releases 3.0 public, we will be holding an Official 3.0 Imperium Game Day Event with lots of giveaways / Prizes. I would expect this not to happen before the 29th, though I will elaborate on the 3.0 Public Release Event further down. Of course, things get delayed and that is why we have plans for each option. We will learn more this Friday with the weekly 3.0 update. You can though, lock in the 29th as the date will not change, only the activities. Previous Game Day: Would like to thank everyone who attended last Game Day! We had lots of fun! Special thanks goes out to @Cincinnatus and @Space-Moose who made a special effort to be present and provide flight training for anyone who wanted to practice. It’s not everyday you get to train with the best! For those of you who don’t know these pilots are already offering something similar outside of Game Day aswell, so if you can’t make it for the one on Game Day, or just want to train a little more please check out this link where you can get more information regarding flight training: Also, congratulations go out to @rimmer59 and @Nehmus who won gift cards. As mentioned in the contingency for this upcoming GameDay, we have special plans for the Public release of patch 3.0 Regardless of the date of the previous or future GameDay’s we are going to hold a special event to celebrate this long awaited patch the weekend of it’s release. Please understand that we may not be able to give much notice ahead of time but if you keep up with the CIG’s weekly updates you should have a good idea when to expect it. Of course, when we have a firm date we will post a much more flashy announcement and ping everyone via Forum/E-mail. Please keep this special event in mind and join us the weekend of the public 3.0 launch. We promise you will not be disappointed. Some of you may even leave with a new ship in your hangar! Details will be posted upon date confirmation from CIG. Standard Game Day Details Joining Game Day For those of you that want to make a return visit, or show up for the first time, you only need to enter the Landing Channel on TeamSpeak (ts.starcitizenbase.com), and one of our Hosts will direct you to the action!

    Not sure where to post this so please move if it's in the incorrect board! I decided to make myself a profile for my X52 Pro in Arena Commander and share it. The default config wasn't that great and I wanted easy access to the decouple mode, strafing buttons and the HUD modes. This is what I came up with The download is attached Just extract 'Star Citizen.pr0' to C:\Users\Public\Documents\SmartTechnology Profiles and right click on your Profiler icon in the taskbar and select 'Star Citizen' to enable it. This Profile requires that you have the default keyboard bindings. I hope this is of use to someone Oh by the way if anyone comes up with a use for the 'A' button (the one to the right of the missile button) please let me know!

    Imperium Member In Need

    Hello everyone, A few day's ago I learned about a particular member of our Organization who's PC died before last weekend. I would prefer not to mention them by name because they never asked me or anyone else to do this for them. Just know that they are an endless fountain of positivity in the lives of many of the people who frequent the Imperium/SCB team-speak. Chances are you have been greeted by this person yourself many times when you come online. I think that is enough hints for now... Imperium is a great community and has shown time and time again that we are an awesome group of human beings. I'd like to thank you all in advance for your generosity and hard work to spread the word so we can get our brother back up and running soon! Here is a link to the FundRazr If you have inquiries or would like to donate parts please contact me over PM. Mandatory Disclaimer: This project is not sponsored by Star Citizen Base or Imperium directly. I take personal responsibility for the outcome of this project.

    So, I went to bed last night at $41,978,980. Woke up, went to Work, came back, $42,000,000 Millionish. I'm not surprised that Extra money came from People who didn't hear of this Game before it went live at Pax. I'm happy to See That People are more and more noticing this and seeing why Chris Roberts is straying away from your Typical MMOS/RPGS. I'd like to Explain some of my feelings through this Achievement with some personal Gifs that I enjoy looking at when Happy moments in my life happen. Everyone that has Backed/Subscribed/Just even put down money for one Pledge, Mate, you are a Smart cookie. Enjoy! (PS IMO im not hating on consoles, just too dam funny to pass up on) When We Hit 42 Mill. People Asking for a Console Version. When Chris Mentioned That Star Citizen would be fully Optimized for x64 Windows. When that guy yelled out "Cry engine sucks" -.- PC Gamers in Blue, Consoles in Grey.....hehehehe.

    Following many different questions on TS and posts related to LTI and melting, I have decided to make this PSA and Guide in order to help members of SCB understand the process, how it works, and the pitfalls people can fall into when doing melts. So first, here's the main PSA. I caution EVERYONE to BE CAREFUL when melting their ships. Remember that the upgrade to LTI via the Archimedes or any other stand-alone is NOT a package, and in order for you to be able to continue with the game, you need to have a package. As of right now, there are NO PACKAGES available on RSI with LTI that are less $1000, and MANY of those packages DO NOT INCLUDE SQ42 + PU Access. If you have a SQ42 and/or PU Access package with a ship and you choose to melt your PACKAGE, when you upgrade to whatever ship you choose, you WILL NOT have your package and package perks anymore. So, with that out of the way, here's the Guide/FAQ for Melts/Unmelts. If there are any insights that I might have missed that others wish to have in this thread, please mention me in a comment below using the "@mention" function. Q: How do I melt a ship? A: Each ship or item you have on RSI that is "meltable" has a button on their profile that's shown in the image below. Once you click that button, a warning page will appear that requires you to confirm the melt request, add in your password, and it then melts the ship. Once that happens, you will receive an email stating that you have reclaimed a pledge. Figure 1: Q: If I melt a ship, can I get it back? A: Yes you can. There's a section on your hangar page called "Buyback Pledges". You can purchase back with cash/credit cards unlimited times, but you're restricted in how often you can use Store Credit. Q: Can unmelted ships be gifted? A: Only if purchased with cash/credit card, NOT with Store Credit. Q: When I melt a package to upgrade the ship to a LTI ship, do I keep the package perks? A: As stated in the PSA above, no. When you melt a package, it and all the perks are also melted. Depending on when you purchased the package, you will probably see you have some leftover money from the transaction once you upgraded from a LTI Stand-alone to the ship you want to have as a LTI ship. Q: Is there any way to turn a package that isn't LTI into a package with LTI? A: No. The only way to melt packages and get an LTI package is to melt over $1000 worth of ships and packages and purchase one of the +$1000 packages on the RSI pledge site. So in this way, if you want to turn a 6-month insurance Freelancer package into an LTI Freelancer package, this is not possible. Q: I have decided I want to melt my ship and purchase upgrades to a ship to get LTI. How do I do this? A: This is a multi-step process. Assuming you have melted a ship using the button pointed out above, you must follow these steps. Step 1: Click on the upgrades section of the RSI pledge store page as indicated by the top arrow in the graphic below. Step 2: Select your ship you wish to be the BASE ship with which to be upgraded FROM in the section indicated by the left-middle arrow in the graphic below. (Note: This will have a list of all of your PLEDGE SHIPS including those within packages. The BASE SHIP INSURANCE will STAY with that ship.) Step 3: Select the ship you wish to upgrade the FROM ship TO as indicated in right-side arrow on the graphic below. (Note: This will have a list of STAND ALONE ships available within the store. It WILL NOT include ALL RSI-available ships unless a sale happens to be going on at the time. THE BASE INSURANCE OF THE "TO" (The Vanguard) SHIP DOES NOT OVER-RIDE THE "FROM" (The P72) SHIP.) Step 4: You will see the total cost of the upgrade below the "From" and "To" Sections and you can purchase that upgrade using the "Buy Now" button as indicated in the bottom arrow in the graphic below. Figure 2: Q: Once I buy the upgrade, does it automatically apply the upgrade to the ship I chose? A: No, it does not. Instead it puts an upgrade inside of your hangar that you will then need to apply to the ship in your hangar. Q: If I buy an upgrade like the P72-Vanguard Warden shown above, can I use it with a different ship, like an Aurora? A: No, you cannot. If you do not use the P72, or if you give away your P72, you will be unable to use the upgrade until you get a P72 into your hangar again. Q: How do I apply the upgrade? A: You select the upgrade in your hangar and click on the "Apply Upgrade" button as shown in the graphic below. Once you have done that, an upgrade screen will show in which you select the ship you wish to upgrade. Once you have selected the ship you then apply the upgrade. (Note: If you have multiple ships in the hangar of the same type, you will see MULTIPLE ships available to upgrade from, INCLUDING ships inside of packages, so be very careful that you're upgrading the CORRECT ship.) Figure 3: Q: Okay, I have applied the upgrade, but I don't see it in my hangar! What's wrong? A: Keep calm and look at the ship you upgraded from. You will see that it shows a default icon, but under the title it has the term "UPGRADED" and has a funky looking computer chip icon next to the name. When you expand the actual ship or package itself, it will show the correct ship, as indicated in the image below. Figure 4: Q: So I have applied the upgrade and I see that I have the proper ship or package and it has LTI. If I melt that ship, will it give me the full amount of my pledge? A: Yes. Even though you'll see the default image, when you melt the pledge, the FULL AMOUNT PAID to CIG will be refunded. (Note: If you purchased from the Grey Market, you will only receive the CIG-set price that was paid for the ship or package.) However, if you wish to unmelt the ship or package, the BASE SHIP ONLY will be available for unmelt, not the ship + the upgrade. So to use the example above, if you melted the Vanguard that came out of the P72, you could only get the P72 back. Q: I bought/got/won an AMD "Never Settle" Edition, and upgraded it, but when I go to melt the package it only shows me the upgrade price, why is that? A: Despite the actual "code" having a value of "$60" on the RSI codes page, the total value of that ship in the RSI store is $0. Q: If I want to melt and buy a ship, then upgrade to another ship, am I actually losing money? A: No. If you refer to Steps 2, 3, and 4 in Figure 2 you will notice that there are MSRP amounts in the "From" and "To" images. The final cost of the upgrade is the DIFFERENCE in price from what you would have paid CIG. Once again, this will be the CIG-listed price, not the price you may have paid if you purchased something or were gifted something that wasn't paid full price for. Q: I was gifted a ship that has a MSRP of $350, but when I try to melt it, it's showing that I will only get $280. Why is that? A: Most likely the ship you were gifted was purchased with a Discount Coupon. Remember, the FULL AMOUNT PAID to CIG is what the system will read, and that is all. Q: Is there any way to "game the system"? A: As of right now, it appears that the only way to "game the system" is in relation to the Armada Pack and some of the Original/Veteran Backer ships and packages. Because the upgrade system has a set MSRP for the ships based on the hull, the OB/VB ships and packages will show as worth their CURRENT MSRP, not their "price at purchase". As such, with my $250 VB Retaliator, I can CCU that and it gives me $275 toward something like, say, a Caterpillar. I hope this has been helpful, and if you have any further questions you wish to add to this guide, follow what I stated at the beginning and post them below.

    The new star map is extremely impressive (kudos to Turbulent BTW), but it's perhaps a bit showy for planning and examining the fabric of the verse; not to mention unprintable. With that in mind, I transformed the 3D star map into 2D schematic maps. They aren't pretty, done in a spreadsheet, and details are omitted, but I believe some of us will be able to derive great use from them. 1. LMap - only shows large jump points 2. MMap - show large and medium jump points; double lines represent large tunnels and single lines represent medium ones In addition to maps, I also did some calculations. If I'm not mistaken, there are 130 jump tunnels visible on the map, of which 85% ie 110 are at least medium in size, and 73 of them are large tunnels. A comforting number considering that Freelancer cannot go through small jump points; a restriction that seriously limits the economic as well as offensive potential of small jump points, as evidenced by Vanduul's inability or unwillingness to punch through Nul. Which brings us to the figures on maps. We know in lore that the remoteness of Earth and the central location of Terra contributed to the gradual shift of power, but just how far is Earth from the rest of the Empire? If we only count the large tunnels, then the answer is close to two and a half jumps. Capital warships and enormous transports moving from/to Earth would need to travel 40% further than Terra. It's even worse when Vanduul is taken into account. Of the six systems that are ten jumps or more removed from Terra, only one is occupied by Vanduul. In the case of Earth, the ratio is 27:5. That ratio also means that nearly 40% of the systems linked up with large tunnel are at least ten jumps away from Earth. As a case in point, Orion, the furthest star of humanity, is 15 jumps away. Logistical difficulties may have contribute as much to UEEN's defeat as Vanduul has; moving bases from Magnus to Kilian, which is actually two jumps further from the frontline, certainly didn't help. The picture isn't any better even when we include the medium tunnels as well. Smaller transports are still traveling more than 40% further to/from Earth, compare to Terra. Seven systems are ten jumps or more away from Earth, compare to none for Terra. No wonder Terra is the new spot for trade and commerce. All things considered, the remoteness of Earth relative to the entire UEE is damaging UEE's war effort and condemning itself to economic decline. With that in mind, how would things change if a large jump link is discovered between, say, Sol and Vega? Such a link would have greatly benefit the movement of large vessels and supplies from the heartland of UEE to the Vanduul frontline, bringing all Vanduul-occupied systems within ten jumps of Earth by closing the large link circle. In fact, should such a link exists, the average jump from Earth to any large-tunnel-linked system would actually be 6% lower than from Terra; on the medium side, the gap is reduced to only 2% higher than Terra. Whether Earth is in the shape to utilise such advantage is another matter. Thank you for reading my wall of text to the end! * I acknowledge that everything including the map and jump link may change at any time. * I acknowledge that the travelling time between jump points hasn't been taken into consideration. * I acknowledge that in some cases a route with more jumps may take shorter time to transverse than one with less jumps.

    (felt this deserved a thread, so copied it out of the Hangar Patch 11 thread) Some Freelancer Variants hidden in the files. Trust AnythingFPS to find them DUR MAX MIS Screenshot of the Game files showing this (I browsed this personally) My guesses: 1st Version (DUR) = Exploration 2nd Version (MAX) = Larger Cargo - Unique hull (most expensive) 3rd Version (MIS) = Gunboat version with anti cap missiles etc. Maybe intended for blockade running. EDIT: More images in Spoilers below Inside of the MAX Variant: images from Kellso's post:

    Hey guys! So about two days ago, Patch 2.6.2 has gone live. Which means the next patch to be released will be 3.0. (hopefully CIG won't release another 2.6.X patch) I know there a couple of you out there that are psyched up for Procedural Planets, New Missions, New Ships and New Places to Explore!!! I'm sure pumped for it. So lately I been getting some messages from some buddy's of mine that have asked me to get them at a level of flying to where they will survive in combat much longer. I've already trained one of them and found it pretty enjoyable in helping them to get better at ship combat. So I've decided to set up some training lessons for any of you that are willing to learn how to get better at the game and be prepared for any bad pirates out there that are willing to pick a fight with you in 3.0. I will be teaching you on: What kind of weapon load outs you should use and what they are effective against. If you still prefer to use your own version of weapons, that is fine too and will as well teach you on how to best use it. Learning what the different icons/words on your ship/helmet HUD means. How to properly maneuver against enemy's and obstacles(if you tend to hit asteroids alot) Determine what pips fit best for you and how to accurately shoot at your targets. How to properly communicate with you teammates in combat(reason why Renegade have such high stats. They know how to back one another up and prevent themselves from getting killed.) Recognizing the weakest part of that certain ship and use different strategy's to beat AI's in Vanduul/Pirate Swarm. And much more! In Star Citizen I say about ~80%(IMO) of the user player base uses only keyboard and mouse.... which is a big ratio compared to those with joystick/pedals. If you take a look at the top players in Arena Commander, most of them are joystick and pedal users.... which is kind of intimidating because it kind of makes you feel like in order to be good at the game you need to own a joystick. Although it does to a certain extent make things a bit easier, it does not make you a better player. What makes you a better player is willing to put time and effort into learning the game. As someone that is a keyboard and mouse user, I will be able to teach you the in and outs of Star Citizen. It maybe frustrating at first, but have patience and continue to put time into it and soon you will feel a difference in your game play. I can also teach joystick and pedal users but to only a certain extent... (Update 5/5/17: I'm pretty good at teaching joystick and pedals ^.^) If you are joystick/pedal user, I highly recommend going to @Cincinnatus for that. He is amazing at training people. To Schedule a Flight Lesson with @Deonaldi or @Cincinnatus: Send us a private message of a time and date you prefer and we will get back to you as soon as possible. That's all you got to do! Lessons will be between half an hour to an hour.... or maybe longer... depending on how things go. Although I'am not the best in the game, I do have a good amount of experience in Arena Commander. From PvP combat to PvE combat. Pretty much been playing this game since 2.1 and I'm a very friendly and patient person ^.^

    Hi fellow SCB members and Imperium members! The following idea was put forward by @Lakota, and I would like to expand the idea, and see what we can make possible. I will recap it here. Theorycrafting-Discussion show on The Base Radio Theory crafting nights. A round table of people who are "educated" about star citizen, who discuss few recent topics. Topics should be set at least a week before hand so that research can be done; consider it an indepth discussion. Perhaps could run in debate format with a pro/con approach to the topic? Also possible to let listerners input their idea's during the show, in the form of questions or arguments. This could be setup as an idea to get the heavy theorycrafting a little bit off the public teamspeak, and let people do real indepth discussions in the form of a weekly public radioshow. As station manager, I'm willing to host the show myself. Leave the technical side up to me. I will probably not participate in the discussion very much, but will be leading / pointing it slightly in the proper direction if necessary. What I am asking: I'm asking for participation from random SCB members who feel like they are open to talk indepth about star citizen and can participate in a civilized discussion. Also people that can help me come up with some guests or anyone that wants to be a permanent co-host is welcome. I will tag some random people from the top of my head below: @Doopsums @VoA @Calexus @SnowOwl @WarWulf @ErickPasta @Basard @GeraldEvans @CZenStar get me more names!

    @Primal We at Fleet Operations are specializing at maintaining Cap ships. Once all the in-game systems are announced we at FO will be dedicated on how to put the ship to use most effectively and safely. If you have the mean to acquire a Cap ship, don't worry about the up keep. If you can truste your ship to us for Fleet related operations, we'll maintain your ships for you, and of course fairly compensate you for lending the ship to our Fleet. If you have any other question about FO, please feel free to contact me, @Arcanus, and @Deltoran We're here to help =)

    Star Guide - Endeavor Update

    Hey guys, I just published a new video talking about the recent endeavor images and some other rampant speculation. Honestly, the endeavor is probably my favorite concept ship. I AM a bit nervous about the price though... I think it will be pretty expensive (relatively). Here's my publication on INN.

    Game Day, Sept 23rd

    Hello @Imperium Members! I would like to make an announcement regarding the next Imperium Game Day’s activities! (Yes this is a copy pasta and will be a copy pasta until after 3.0 release) As you may know already Patch 3.0 is (not so rapidly) approaching and it’s within the realm of possibility that the next scheduled Game Day may fall on a date where PTU is out of Evocati and semi-public. It’s reasonable to expect some sort of layered release as usual and not everyone will have access at the same time. With that said here are the contingencies for the next Game Day. Game Day for September will take place on the 23rd. If 3.0 is not in a semi-public PTU or still with Evocati we will treat this month’s Game Day as a last attempt to get some practice in on our EVA, FPS, and Flight skills before 3.0. You can expect the usual, Star Marine, Flight Training, Game modes like, Zombie mode, Drunken Citizen, etc.. If 3.0 is in semi-public PTU we will be indulging the patience of those who have been foaming at the mouth for months and will prioritize playing 3.0 and streaming it for those who might not yet have access. If in some unholy change of events Chris holds an impromptu naked drunken late night stream and releases 3.0 public, we will be holding an Official 3.0 Imperium Game Day Event with lots of giveaways / Prizes. I would expect this not to happen before next month, though I will elaborate on the 3.0 Public Release Event further down. Of course, things get delayed and that is why we have plans for each option. We will learn more this coming Friday with the weekly 3.0 update and have an even better idea after the Gamescom presentation on the 25th. Previous Game Day: Would like to thank everyone who attended last Game Day! We had lots of fun! Special thanks goes out to @XLB and @Space-Moose who made a special effort to be present and provide flight training for anyone who wanted to practice. It’s not everyday you get to train with the best! For those of you who don’t know these pilots are already offering something similar outside of Game Day as well, so if you can’t make it for the one on Game Day, or just want to train a little more please check out this link where you can get more information regarding flight training: Also, congratulations go out to @Rellim, @ark_bird, @moggimus, and @Vae who won gift cards for their participation in the 4 different game-day events.

    From Reddit (upvote when you get a chance!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzqRi7mEUT0&feature=youtu.be This video is a montage from Imperium's first monthly game night on Saturday, October 22nd. The footage highlights our main event on each game night: a custom-designed scenario mission. Let me give you and idea of what went on: This month, up to eight participants were "hired as mercenaries by a wealthy merchant" and given three dynamic assignments from the merchant: (1) rescue the merchant from pirates holding him for ransom at Yela, (2) wipe out the remainder of the pirate gang at Kareah and recover the merchant's stolen goods, and (3) recover any remaining cargo from the site at which the merchant was attacked and one of his cargo ships was destroyed. They are ultimately betrayed by the merchant: he kills the two mercs onboard his ship just as a number of fighters suddenly appear on radar with the intent to eliminate the escort fighters. Five other members participated in the event as OPFOR. They acted as the pirates in scenes 1 and 2, and as the ambush fighters with a singular goal in scene 3: no survivors! (Yes, it was definitely challenging to get everyone on the same server, but it was a success!) Our next game night is on Saturday, November 19th. The details can be found at https://starcitizenbase.com (Credit for the video goes to @Switch.)

    Click Bait Protocol Activated. (whew that was close)... I am not into denial. However, until things actually start to fall apart, I refuse to give authority to The Sky Is Falling presentations that are just there to make people feel important when their Views propagate because they headlined a popular subject. Your mileage may vary. - DRUM out

    Many of you may remember the Power Rangers from your childhood (or just from that time 10+ years ago when they were really popular)... But did you ever wonder what might have happened when those kids grew up and turned into adults... and shit got real?

    Why have ships with windows?

    You're talking about from the computer manufacturer's right? It's because most people couldn't install an OS.
