  1. @Morgenroeteif Switch doesn't get it, let me know. I want that pack.
  2. Imperium and SCB members, As I am sure many of you have noticed, the Base Radio and Imperium/SCB no longer have a shared partnership with each other. We've waited to comment on this departure as it occurred near CitizenCon and we wanted to focus on our community and CitizenCon and having a great event. Now that we've had time to process CitizenCon and we've also had some followup chats with some people who left, here is what we at Imperium and SCB have to say on this situation. We have had a link between our organizations in one way or another since the beginning of SCB/Imperium, with many of the Base Radio’s “Staff/Commentators” coming from within Imperium itself. However, the end of this connection is not something we are terribly surprised about, as the direction of the Base Radio has long been going differently than that of Imperium and SCB. While we are saddened to see this partnership end, it has become clear over the past months that the Base Radio and SCB/Imperium have reached a point of dissolution; a fact made clear by the recent abrupt resignation by some Imperium members who also shared roles as staff for the Base Radio. We in Fleet Command and Imperium as a whole wish the members of the Base Radio the best of luck in their future endeavours and hope that they can maintain a healthy listenership/viewership as the game gets closer to completion. For those Imperium members who may have left alongside the Base Radio members, please know you were missed at our recent awesome CitizenCon watch party, and we wish you Godspeed as you find organizations that fit you better. Good luck to you all, and see you in the ‘verse!
  3. You cannot sell the 400i if it was gifted to you by someone else. That ability has been removed by the gifting process. Additionally, it's not something you'd get much profit on, regardless of its LTI/warbond status as it's a straight to flyable.

    As of today, CIG has removed Idris-M Giftability. Closing this thread.
  5. @Brosionas of today, CIG has removed the ability for Idris M to be gifted. As such, I am closing this thread.
  6. As of today, CIG has declared the Idris-M stand alone as no longer giftable. Any and all threads advertising for this will hereby be closed.
  7. I've been spending time watching The Expanse recently and I realized a lot of the ships in that show share similar characteristics to that of the Terran ships from Sins of a Solar Empire. Rocinante Kol Battleship from SIns of a Solar Empire We can even go as far back as Halo's Pillar of Autumn to see this kind of design. Personally, I'd love to see CIG take a crack at this kind of ship design. Are there any designs you'd like to see CIG incorporate into the Verse?
  8. @Fleischwolfapply the CCU, it's a huge value, especially when the Banu gets a price jump. I already messaged you about it on discord, but I'm putting it down here as a matter of record.
  9. Good day, Imperium and SCB members! We had an amazing CitizenCon this year, with a very large turnout for the first CitizenCon since 2019. Our activities began about an hour before the event started, with people showing up and chatting about what we expect for CitizenCon. We had a major turnout of ~40 people for pretty much the entire show, chatting together, voicing thoughts and “oooohs” and “ahhhhhs” over everything from the Pyro art, to the 400i/Liberator. Surprisingly, we didn’t have many instances of drinking too heavily…until the Tony Z presentation. My deepest apologies for the drinking rule related to Tony’s “you know…” speaking mannerism. I hope everyone survived that one! Additionally, we had some fun giveaways with our members Lowzone, 1Triton, and Federal winning a P52, P72 LTI, and Original Backer Arbiter pack respectively. Congrats to the winners! Finally, once we had enough folks copied to the PTU and/or interested in live-server shenanigans, we had a number of members and officers working together to get the Jumptown reward and/or experience the Wave 1 PTU together. This was a great CitizenCon comeback for our members and I'm grateful to everyone who showed up and made the day/afternoon/evening/early-fucking-morning awesome! See you all at the anniversary next month!
  10. @Boildownthat's literally what I told folks when I heard about this, haha. This does make me wonder if CIG is going to start making more of these kinds of ships, though. Especially with how things are going to be with the new inventory systems and likely ship movement systems in the game.
  11. Nice so far! I'm getting some great ideas. Need more!
  12. Good day, SCB and Imperium members! In the spirit of fun and given the fact we'll ALL be watching this as a livestream, as a bit of fun I'm taking submissions for "drinking game" activities. You can have your own favourite alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink available (liver damage is not a pre-requisite for this event or game) to enjoy during the show. There will be designated "DRINK!" announcers so everyone's aware that they need to drink. Please feel free to submit your ideas to the drinking game, along with the level you think appropriate. I'll pick the best ones and make up the list before the event. Here are the stipulations: Small/fun things = sip Medium-level = two sips/1 shot Big shit = finish your drink / 2 shots Here are some of my ideas. Anytime a new ship is revealed (Concept) = Big shit A ship is announced as "Now flyable in 3.15!" (e.g. Scorpius, Railen, etc...) = Big shit Anytime the Redeemer or Ares are mentioned = Small Anytime Chris Roberts says "Ehm/Erm" in his presentation = Small Anytime CIG mentions Theaters of War = Medium Anytime the word "persistence" is used in CR's speech or a video = Small Anytime they say "Physicalized Inventory" = Small If CR swears during his presentation(s) = Big Shit
  13. Greetings, Imperium and SCB members! CitizenCon is only a few days away (9th October) and with this being the first CitizenCon since 2019, we'd love to make this one as fun and special as we have in the past. Personally, I will be staying up as late as possible (starts 23:00 for me) and will be helping manage the channel for mutes and opens if people want to comment. We'll also be having some fun giveaways, discussions/comments live on the presentations, predictions, maybe even a drinking game (alcoholic/non alcoholic, you choose), and if things work out, might even make a run for Jumptown to help people get the Day of the Vara helmet. If you're planning on joining us for the event, please post here or on the discord announcement. See you all there!
  14. Best of luck wherever you end up! I'll still be seeing you on steam. Hope to see you in the 'verse and have some good flights and good times.
  15. Good luck to you, man. You'll be missed and I hope to see you around again, soon.
  16. We've always erred on the side of personal choice, and if CIG does what they did with Orison where - if you're not careful - they'll make you default spawn to Orison, it can be problematic. We also need to see how CIG will actually implement the inventory limitations in practice as opposed to their "planned" systems that haven't even made it the Evocati for testing. After watching the latest ISC where they've given more information on the localized inventory and such, I still don't see us trying to suggest that people have the same starting point, especially given how buggy the planets are. What we could potentially consider is a common place that we would have as a staging area for events, and then encourage members to stock things at those locations that would be beneficial for doing events. This definitely will make coordinating starting points for operations a lot more important, as well as spawn points at medical facilities in case of death.
  17. Having spent the last two months playing in the PU, starting locations only matter for the minutes that it takes to go from the hab areas to the spaceport, and then the 10k climb out of atmosphere. Additionally, operating out of the planet habitats tends to be a bit problematic for people with lower end machines because the environments are harder to get through than being on stations. While I can recommend Lorville or Microtech as good start spots because of less performance hit than Orison or Arccorp, there are a variety of issues in all "spawn" locales and most people only go to the planets for the purposes of selling or shopping before returning to the black and to named/lagrange point stations. Also, given the fact that you can traverse the system in less than 10 minutes, it won't take much time for people to bounce around to wherever the action happens to be. Now, once we are in a multi-system situation, where we have Nyx and Pyro also as potential areas of operation, we might want to consider having IMP people agree on main areas of operating, but for now, the single system doesn't really necessitate that kind of coordination.
  18. @zzepto If you have applied it, make sure if it's still giftable. If it's giftable then the prices can vary from $150-$250 that people try to get for them from what I've seen. Some people try to list it super high, but don't sell. You can also check on Reddit's sctrades to see what people sell it for, too.
  19. @Drum I picked it up, I know Godze. He's good
  20. This all depends on where you are in the game and what effects you have turned on and off. Right now, I don't know of ANY rig that you can run the game on max with all the bells and whistles turned to max and it doesn't chug, especially in places like ArcCorp and Orison. I would play around with your graphics settings in the game, maybe turn off film grain and motion blur, see what things you can cut down one notch in order to get good frames. Your desktop rig is almost the same as the laptop I use to play at night, and I run on most settings medium or high, just fine in space, but if I head toward a planet it shits a brick for a little bit before it catches up, and then the frames drop to around 40. Side note you may see some performance increases if you're on a m.2 instead of a SATA. Just a thought. Also, hard-line if you can. Wifi adds another level of potential instability that I've noticed when playing on the laptop hard-lined versus wifi.
