  1. Pioneer construction/colonizer ship [Official Thread]

    the ship is buyable ingame... when do you think you'll need to build a base..1 month 2 month in? not on day one... not worth it (with the infos we have atm)
  2. 500kg-1 ton at 80% light is a planetkiller! (look up the formula on wiki and do the math..should be a few terratons TNT if not more) 100g at 10% light is around 5 megatons TNT kinetic-impact, if i remember correctly (i did the math once, a few years back)
  3. Banu Merchantman

    I saw a few of the inforunners BMM vids and i had to shake my head at the gun size they came up with. Those early concept arts was for the 60m Banu merchantman, it only increased in size at a later date. On the other hand, now that the BMM is increased to 150-155m length, i would not be surprised to see capital size guns like the STS on the Idris beeing mounted on the BMM. I is still my favorite ship in star citizen though
  4. Aegis Redeemer

    It is obvious... once the rework is done they sell it for $350 $250 was to cheap compared to a Vanguard Warden, at least with all those guns. and i do not mind if it gets bigger... Wonder if a fixed size 6 fit on the lower turret spot ^^ if not, 2 missile-racks should do the trick too
  5. Xi'an Khartu-al - 2.3 - Community Input - [POLL]

    When i first saw the scout it was listed with 6 gun mounts, after it finaly was for sale it was down to 2 gun mounts. That realy anoid me ^^ The pricetag warrented at least 4 guns
  6. Best sub-$200 long-range escorts?

    if you look for something durable with firepower and cargohold get a Freelancer MIS, near the same price then the superhornet but class 5 shields and powerplant with 4 size 4 guns and a load of missles
  7. Banu Merchantman

    Banu MM should be runable with 4 or 5, you need a pilot, 2 gunners (for turrets) someone to look after power and shields and someone firing the main guns (could be pilot) I cannot see the need for 8 atm, but there might be a reason or 2 edit: 3-4 npcs and you as pilot/forwardgunner should be doable
  8. Origin 890 JUMP

    The size 6 powerplant is a little weak compared to the size 7 in the phoenix and it only has size 6 shields, like the phoenix. I wonder how the 3 class 4 turrets are controled, though it lags forward guns, its one fine looking ship and the X85 is nice! I assume the stats are getting tweaked later on. the sale was less then 20 min btw, i refreshed saw 20 left and once mine got through (which took 5 tries hitting process) and i checked again it was 0 ^^ good luck with the next batches
  9. Xi'an Scout - Khartu-al (export model)

    The Xi'an scout is my only small ship (2 or less seats) the LTI really make me proud to own one now I belief its going to be a very unique flying style in that ship and the (afaik) 6 guns (2x class 1 size 4 and 4x size 2 class 2) should be enough power to 'dance' with the better dogfighters.
  10. Origin 890 JUMP

    We might see some presentation either in october or at pax Australia hopefully
  11. 350R Specs Change!

    there will also be the cargopod option for outside mounts... the 350R is the more flexible ship then the M50 hmm i would vote xi'an scout
  12. Banu Merchantman

    I do hope so ! only question will be how many they sell and for how much, since they raise the price every time ... 500 BMMs would go inside 5 minutes
  13. I doubt that, the 2 TR4 in a 350R should push the 20 ton craft far above the M50 meager TR2s that weighs 12 tons
  14. Racing - 350r

    at the current specs the 350R will not be as speedy as the m50. the 350R weight is double that of the M50 and both have 2x TR4 max engines... but i think once the hangar version/AC version comes out we see some new stats ...and maybe a launch-sale..?
  15. Banu Merchantman

    Well, frigates can carry 4 or even 6 fighters now can't they? so all you need is a 12 ship convoy, with 6 idris and 6 transports and either 24 hornets or 36 The Idris P's should have more cargo then a conny (unlike the shipspec stats) which would make a nice high security transport and a 6x6 formation would cover all 6 (in 3 D space) 'angles' (point, rearguard, top, down, left and right) with overlapping fire-arcs.
