    MISC Odyssey

    There are a few more hours of this available. You can get a Warbond Odyssey for cheap(er) than advertised using CCUs and a Spartan. I think this is the 'best' CCU path for those interested. Spartan LTI Warbond ($65) -> CCU-Spartan-to-Raft($30) -> CCU-Raft-to-Mercury($105) -> CCU-Mercury-to-Redeemer($15) -> CCU-Redeemer-to-C2 Hercules($40) -> CCU-C2 Hercules-to-Carrack($160) -> CCU-Carrack-to-Odyssey($100) The ending Odyssey costs $515 Warbond and if it turns out to be crap you can just stop at the Carrack upgrade and refund the Carrack to Odyssey CCU later

    MISC Odyssey

    After looking at some of the reviews there is a potential that each of these ships are being focused on. The Carrack lore has language about scanning for jumppoints and mapping those out, though it should be able to scan and map more. The Odyssey doesn't list the jumppoint mapping, has one less computer, and with the mining arm seems to be more "scan the planet/moon/asteroids" and explore those things focused. This is all just theory though, but it would allow for both to be viable 'best ship for X' in the exploration world.

    MISC Odyssey

    Yeah, I'm torn between the 2 ships for 'pinnacle' exploration. I think the Carrack still has more armor but the Odyssey might have more shield. It's interesting to see the all the capital components on the Odyssey but not on the Carrack. Carrack with 4 dual Size 4 guns and the Odyssey with 3 dual Size 5 guns is fairly comparable (though not equivalent), it's not like it's a comparison of 2 size 2's to 3 dual Size 5s; they are fairly close to each other. So, let's do a quick compare; the Carrack might have better radar, it might have better armor, and it's said to have 'swappable modules' in it's belly that are stock storage kitted (giving the ships it's 456 SCU), so that modularity might be a plus. Whereas, the Odyssey has a Capital shield (1,000,000-750,000 hp) compared to 100,000hp for a large (I think that's correct); and has a mining arm, a refinery to refine that sweet quantanium among other things, a bigger power plant, more computers, missiles, and 2 utility mounts. Sheeeesh...it makes for a tough comparison for the Carrack. What I think will happen is that they are going to make a pass on the Carrack and re-align it's stats, I think the Lore still states the Carrack is military explorer, best thing you can buy in the exploration class. That doesn't fit unless they do a "MISC saw this and their answer is the Odyssey to challenge the Carrack and do it better!", in some marketing lore. I have a Carrack in the exploration megapack from a few years back, which was a great deal at the time. If the Odyssey stays on top with these stats I may look at the Odyssey later. Comments and discussion are welcome, my stats may not be 100% but I think I have the relative size of the shields right.
  4. Wow, redoing several CCUs I had saved up, Merchantman to Hammerhead CCUs are $100 cheaper now, and I still have LTI because of the starting LTI token. Just have one question, will Merchantman to 'N' (Hammerhead/Polaris/Perseus) CCUs be up for sale tomorrow or are they just available today because it's Alien day. Just trying to figure out if I should buy it today or can I wait to save up for a possible Odyssey purchase later in the sale to use my Imperator coupon for max savings.
  5. What do people think of the ship packages? I think it's a great preview of how they will monetize after the game launches, these cosmetics (paint, cockpit, coffee maker, bed sheets) are decent. But, what about the other pieces? The coffee maker and food machine, we will have to eat and drink in the game so does this allow us to throw money and 'solve' that gameplay mechanic, or at least prepare with real-world-money for the mechanic? Then there are the fitting packages, definitely not cosmetic, and having military grade gear in them was odd to see, but... I think it's still a potential way for them to monetize after release and (maybe) ship sales stop but fittings sales continue? Anyways, I customized my 300 series, anyone have comments on the packages or costs?
  6. Hmm, no I mean that the Kraken went back up for sale just then as the Warbond edition, $1400 as listed in 'Limited Quantities'. Probably only visible to concierge like yesterday's Idris-P and still available right now. https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/Standalone-Ships/Drake-Kraken-Anniversary-2018-Warbond Still for sale as of 04:52pm CDT !! Still for sale as of 0725pm CDT (I'm rather surprised) Just checked again and warbond still for sale @ $1400 as of now 10:25pm CDT - 0425UTC Checked again, after the next vendor launch (this is during the 2948 Anniversary sale) and it is now sold out. That was a long window, if anyone wanted a Kraken and was willing to spend new $ they should have it now.
  7. Krakens- Warbond for sale "Limited Stock" as of just a few mins ago. If they do it the same as yesterday's Idris-P warbond then they may be for sale until about 02:00 UTC tomorrow? The Idris-P was up until about 1930 CST yesterday.
  8. And now the Warbond Idris-P and Javelins are out of stock. Can't even guess how many were sold, might be some guesses made from the totals pledged today, I'd be interested in the numbers of Javelins (Warbond) sold today.

    Aegis Idris Frigate

    And now the Warbond Idris-P and Javelins are out of stock. Guess all opportunities for them in this anniversary sale are now over, wish some of this had been documented from CIG, I mean, timelines, sale waves for credit, they announced for the K kits but that was all. Don't want to rant just a PSA that the Warbond sales are over.

    GRATZ!

    Aegis Idris Frigate

    Yes.... If I'm on an Idris-K I think I will be making Brrrrnnzz ... brrrrnnnzzzzttt! noises whenever it fires. Thinking it's a massive beam leaving scorched devastation where it paints along a target.

    Aegis Idris Frigate

    So, maybe an off the wall thought, but, these parts, do we have any idea what they are worth in game (UEC)? I'm curious to see if the S10 beam weapon is worth a crapton of UEC, is the package a good UEC investment? <maybe this could be moved to General as it's not about Aegis ships specifically?>

    Aegis Idris Frigate

    Yeah, from the screen shots I've seen, in concierge chat on RSI, they show up as addons, just like the Endeavor pods.
  14. The Warbond $2700 are still available and I do not think they are limited quantities, just limited time (like the Idris is currently - Warbond is unlimited number at $1300). So... lots more Javelins going to be around??? 🤩

    Aegis Idris Frigate

    Interestingly, the Warbond Idris-P that says "Limited Stock" isn't very limited, if you are willing to put $1300 new dollars they are unlimited right now. I PM'd CIG guy from the Concierge chat and he confirmed that was working as intended (I thought the website had messed up so I asked him privately).
