  1. Between this and the Redemeer, I feel a there is a creep on gun toting in general, balancing all that defensively will be a mess.
  2. If you want to explore ( for the UEE, your org etc) probably the Carrack is better; if you're a lone man on the frontier, I'd go with the Odissey: you can find new places and start mining and doing stuff right away, more cargo for building bases on the ground, one deployable small ship for extra flexibility etc.

    Need advice

    I found this useful too, if applicable to your case https://testsquadron.com/threads/improve-sc-performance-with-page-filing.12695/. I saw mentioned a couple more things: 1-it is better to run SC on high settings than low, since otherwise it burdens the CPU ( which is the bottleneck) with part of the graphic load of the GPU 2-Multi core is a must 3- more than 16g or ram help a lot since the game uses full 16 and Windows/iother apps need to dip on those all the time
  4. I picked the Inferno too due to accurate reasoning and lenghty pondering based on the fact that no sane human being can say no to a friggin 25 meter long gatling... so sue me😜
  5. If you want to giht the Scorpius seems fine, it lends well to multiplayer without being totally to it... if you have the patience to wait for the ship to be done. The loaner seems to be the Hurricane which is a ship that seems improved from 1.14, so all good there.
  6. I should say something about the different scope and what do you want to do with it, but really, how mnay people are you going to play most of the time ( and do you have multicrew ships already)? Because if you can't have a couple of guys onboard pretty frequently I'd stick with the Ion.

    Aegis Sabre

    Well, the problem it's not that it handles worse than a Hornet, it's that they say it's intended.... right now it underperforms on the Hornet on everything except top speed.

    Aegis Sabre

    After taking away a shield, now we have devs telling us it's expected to handle like the Hornet.... I'm starting to sweat bullets tbh
  9. True but look at it from the other side: as a medium fighter ( that fits in a Polaris) it's a perfectly fine ship.
  10. So, it's there a reason to keep the Hornet? 🙄 Edit: I'll recant my opinion, it's quite light defensively... we will see
  11. It's a pity the one that won't matter was elected in the end 😉
  12. Costigan me too: while the cartel stuff is shady, more militia means more work for me
  13. In any case it won't be hard to remake the unit from scratch when the games is ready to go online properly; besides I doubt the picture we have now is what we will have then
  14. Absolutely, I just asked since sometimes admins are somewhat.... lethargic
  15. What happens if the procedure isn't complete after 30 days?
  16. I'll never get used to the look of Tevarin ships
  17. If I told someone that and he said yes either he's dumb as a rock or I'd comb his ledgers very very carfully before giving thumbs up.
  18. Well, it is a competitor for what the Vanguard was supposed to do, which is to hurt capitals.
  19. I'm more worried about the Vanguard.... They're built around the same concept ( a BFG), just this one's...bigger. The Vanguard still has range ( but only non quantum, since the Q tank is the same), more armor but the Ares gives the feeling of being a better dogfighter ( if get caught in one)

    RSI Mantis

    Well, for your second point, it was a direct quote from the article, so I cannot say if you're right or not, I was just quoting CIG. For the first and last, I agree, I can use the ship to intercept Vanduul or pirates but you, me, every other player and its cousin knows it's a ship that sells to people that at 99% would buy with the intent of pulling out of quantum poor sods and 1% are crusading against vanduuls, just saying. On top of that, I remember when ships used to come out a while back, we used to have quite another approach to them. For example, I remember when the Vanguard was revealed we took it for what it was ingame :a long range bomber to blast Vanduuls, we were considering what kind of targets were most probable ( Void class bombers etc) and how could a navy bomber needed to be effective at that; on the contrary how it related performance wise to, say, a Freelancer, was not a big concern. Now the lore lover part of me it's somewhat baffled that we're having a ship ( a necessary ship, for a necessary role, no criticism about that) built by RSI of all people, while, as far as I can see now ( maybe I am blind) the by for most probable role is pirating ( aka robbery/murder). I'm not against the ship, it's just it's weird that its RSI that builds them, that's all ( Drake would feel fine for example).

    RSI Mantis

    Can I say that it feels weird that the interdiciton ship (available to the public nonetheless! what kind of legit uses can this thing have honestly?) is from RSI? Considering it's basically a pirate tool with a clean dress? To clarify, from the article " With the mantis, it is possible to prevent nearby ships to escape into quantum travel with the "dampening" feature. The "entanglement" pulls them actively out of quantum travel, with a kind of trap or noose which is placed in space. Of course, such ambushes are best suited to locations along busy quantum routes, such as between Port Olisar and Hurston. Ships or group of ships, pulled out of quantum travel, can be jumped with the Mantis immediately by its own quantum drive, which is normaly impossible, since the travel points for this feature are fixed. However, the Mantis pilot and all members of his group get a special fast-access point to quickly surround the victim. If the Mantis then activates its dampening feature, the enemy ships can no longer flee until the Mantis is destroyed." What's more, Crewe said interdicting it's a highly illegal activity, yet you can buy at any RSI vendor a ship built around a tool whose only purpose is breaking the law.... Just imagine if Ford sold a pickup with a custom built ATM ripper crane...
  22. I don't know Voa... if I want to do fighter stuff, I use the Warden, if I take out the Harb I am bombing... Besides on the store page it says "Vanguard Harbinger -Bomber", then you have " The Vanguard Harbinger is Earth’s standard fighter-bomber, converting the standard Warden model’s escape pod into a potent bomb bay. The extended range of the Vanguard and the relatively small profile mean that it can go where carrier-based planes or larger strategic bombers don’t… and then strike hard and make it back to frontier bases. The Vanguard Harbinger is a powerful bomber that can operate out of the roughest forward operating bases. " It really looks like a bomber to me.
