    Super hornet?

    Yep, the F7A bodykit (or several ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) is one of my reasons to have some hornets. As an aside - I was shocked to get into 3.3 today and find the Hornet Wildfire now just has a mount instead of a turret behind the cockpit. Seriously - that turret was one of the main selling points of the Wildfire originally.

    Be Patient - Female Avatars Coming Soon

    I'm offended by your assertions that someone may be offended by your actions today. This is particularly the case as you failed to accurately catalogue your actions so I could complain about specifics ๐Ÿ˜จ

    mia Coming back into the swing of things!

    Welcome back! No harm in a break - nothing worse than getting burnt out even before the game properly launches.

    2018 Anniversary and Holiday Livestreams

    Cutlass Blue would be nice, not that I realistically think that will happen, but it would be nice ๐Ÿ™‚ It will be interesting indeed - seems there is a bit of money on one being a new starter ship.

    Howdy, newbie on board :)

    Welcome to SCB MacOwain! I too am looking forward to trading. Your Freelancer should be a great ship to get ahead on the trade routes - and likely a few other things besides.

    Super hornet?

    Fair enough, if you need to fly with friends then yeah, the SH is the way to go, no question. On a personal level I'm basically after the ultimate armoured tank, and the base components really don't seem likely to be a deal breaker to need replacing. I'm pretty confident I can have a far superior craft for only a modest amount of money, and unfortunately insurance though once again I can't see it being a big deal. Not so much more armour, but the same armour and better speed/menuevering.. Unfortunately it seems that CIG have really nerfed the components back to very close to base F7C standard - I originally had SH's for the same reason as you. I guess one issue that the SH really has in favour - that back seat driver can manipulate shields, radar and fire the turret. That could be a big deal in a serious fight. I'm extremely cautious about the Hurricane though. I had several updgrades, now melted. Beautiful looking ship, but looks alone aren't enough. I've seen just how completely incapable it is of handling hits and went nuh-uh ๐Ÿ˜› @VoA Can't wait to see the F8 in person. The concept art is amazing - I have a couple of the much despised Vanguards for my heavy/long range fighters, glad I held on to them as they suddenly seem useful in 3.3, still not in the same league visually to the F8 however.

    Super hornet?

    I'm getting a strong feeling now that a standard F7C may well end up being a superior combat ship to a F7C-M with only a few minor upgrades. Maveuverability and speed are far too important to write off - in theory the single seat F7C can end up with the same armour as an SH, and the powerplant is no longer special for that ship. Come the Anniversary sale I'm really tempted to get another Wildfire CCU and convert my Supers to something else. I just can't see that extra seat being enough compensation for losing speed and maneuvering.

    RSI Orion

    I'm doing the concierge thing and having both ๐Ÿคจ In reality I can't see either being disappointing, but I'm really happy with what I've seen so far of the mining profession. My main concern is though that strip mining with a Orion, at least on more profitable ores, could well be far more dangerous vis a vis piracy and random attacks, than fuel mining. Certainly strong escort would be needed for the Orion regardless. We shall see.

    Welcome to SCB @Justicar! Best wishes for the USAF also - should be a really interesting career.

    RSI Orion

    Mining was one of those professions that I wasn't entirely sure would work out at all interesting. Mind you, I did a fair bit of mining in EvE Online and found it strangely therapeutic after a long lousy day. So I sat down today, having a few days off work, and watched some of the online vids regarding the Prospector, and was actually impressed. This one in particular was really interesting, multiple failures and all: I'm keeping an eye on the Orion which I have on my buyback from the first concept sale, and combined with a Terrapin would be a huge moneymaker if used properly. I'm looking forward to this beast in-game, though obviously it may be some time yet. I'll probably get a prospector in the meantime and melt when the Orion comes closer to fruition.

    EMERGENCY DISCUSSION (PLEASE READ)

    As an ex-EVE player, I can confirm the group calling themselves "Imperium" was the Goons, or Goonsquad or similar since 2006 or so onwards. They renamed themselves to "Imperium" after gaining such a lousy name and reputation that even their allies in EVE turned on them. Us, the SC Imperium had been named as we are for years before this occurred. Nothing in common whatsoever. As has been pointed out several times in this thread, the founding principles of our Organisation are also pretty much diametrically opposite to the Goons also.

    The original post application text said that we would be contacted after the 22nd regarding the Kraken. Maybe they were using a Universal calendar ๐Ÿ˜„
