  1. I created a thread in Spectrum regarding my own interpretation of the deck layouts for the Polaris at the following link. I won't copy-n-paste what I posted there, but you can take a look and read it yourself. Enjoy! https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/65300/thread/inside-the-polaris
  2. 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...
  3. 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 military focused instead of VIP's. I looked over everything in my hangar at the time and noted that if I used credits to buy a Carrack-to-Perseus CCU (I already had a cheap C2-to-Carrack CCU), I only needed to spend $25 more (new cash) to buy a Perseus-to-Polaris CCU (war-bond). And on top of that I'd still have a F7C-M with an upgrade to either the Ares or Scorpius or other liked-priced ship that I could fit in the Polaris' hangar Anyways, it was a no-brainer for me and I spent the $25. I now have a path to owning this magnificent ship, and I am once again waiting for ships to be added to the 'Verse before applying multiple CCU's. Till then, I'll putz around in the Hercules C2 and F7C-M. Anyways, just wanted to share...
  4. I completely agree, Zeabz. The cargo aspect is awesome, and design of the Hercules is great. But it's just so EMPTY on the upper deck. I had created some alternative versions just for fun that included better uses of the hallways made into rooms with a central walkway (think like the Carrack). My ideas included like a better lounge, better crew accommodations, simple seats for personal transport, or just rooms for more cargo. My last thought was maybe a larger elevator to bring ranger-or-similar sized vehicles for storage up-top too. You know, ideas to make a transport ship be able to do more transport-like duties. I ended up deleting the thread because all I got back on Spectrum was literally hate for even having ideas.
  5. 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.
  6. Depending on the price, might just have found the replacement for my SuperHornet that I've been holding onto since they first released the F7C-M... Really liking the look.
  7. I was pretty un-impressed when the MSR modeled was released. It just got way too huge for what I wanted, even if it was still fast. The inside layout to me was also weird, and with a few other decisions made I have yet to apply my MSR CCU (and may not at all). Now with the Hercules, I'm once again wondering who the hell is making all these stupid decisions with the idiotic excuse that there needs to be difference because of "balance". Why can't the C2 have the third cockpit seat? Why shouldn't the C2 have the bunk beds? Why can't the M2 have the same CSU? Why can't the M2 have a kitchette? Because the C2 and M2 must have "balance" and there's gotta be a reason for $120 difference. This could have been a simple and EASY difference between the two. Start with the C2 design, but include the third cockpit seat and third bed. (I'd also say the top-side layout could have been a LOT better designed to allow more facilities/etc.) Next for the M2, leave the top-side the same, but in the bottom carve out a specific area for troop seats and armory along the sides that doesn't allow cargo to be positioned as wide as in the C2. It would still allow both tanks to fit in, but not the same amount of cargo as the C2--You'd also get to keep the kitchenette in the M2. But no, someone has decided to make it hard and make (in my opinion) idiotic design decisions. It's because of this I've lost a lot of interest in CIG and their ships.
  8. Found someone streaming a first look of the Hercules C2 on Youtube...
  9. What viperalpha said, plus note that right now CIG is much more geared towards making a SIM than a game--which unfortunately has brought with it a lot of delays in actually producing a full featured game. Your experience now may be--and will likely be a LOT different from what it will be in 2-5 years. That's not to say you can't have fun now, but I'm in the boat that I'm unsure what direction CIG is actually going to take in a lot of areas of the game and for now am taking a break till they can really get the core of the game built out and solid.
  10. Interesting, but will it be worth the ridiculous amount of money to upgrade to the M2?
  11. The hornet series are in dire need of an update as well. There are a few bugs and issues with it still, but it can be a great ship when outfitted properly (which changes patch to patch).
  12. I can't seem to find a list of the actor/actresses that played those parts. Madi sounds like the chick from Big Bang Theory. That said, I know they probably did this all with either mocap and/or the new head tracking software, but I wish still they would have held off on making these till the tech was better at capturing facial expressions AND they had fleshed out character creation more (the hairstyles available not to mention clothing is terrible right now).
  13. I agree, it does look like a melting pot of those two variations and then made much bigger.
