  1. The Brave Little Merlin

    In the wee hours of the morning, myself and @Norem decided we'd have a bit of fun pushing the limits of the PTU 2.6.0k. After hours of trying to fit a Merlin into a Caterpillar with varying degrees of explosive failure, Norem decided to grab a Starfarer and attempt to carry the intrepid little Merlin to places never traversed by its kind and do battle with villainous pirates, for science! Credit to @Norem for staying patient and willing to go along with this crazy little venture.

  4. Imperium Crewing Starfarer

    Wasn't sure if this was the right location to post this, but I figure it's a testament to SC's current tech as well. A couple of pics from our gaming last night. At one point (IIRC) there were 11 of us on this Starfarer.
  5. Hey Guys. I am currently trying to sell my star citizen account. All my ships were at one point in time purchased with store credits, otherwise I would've been able to sell them separately. I currently own: Starfarer (6 month Insurance) Starfarer Gemini (6 month Insurance) Freelancer (6 month Insurance) Drake Dragonfly (LTI) Reliant Kore (6 month insurance) The account also has several paid subscriber hangar decorations and $155 in current and available store credits. I am trying to sell my account for several reasons. 1, I'm trying to move into a new apartment. 2, I am currently on track to be in the Arizona Police Academy by Christmas and will not have the time to devote to star citizen along with other time investments that I consider to be a higher priority. I am willing to provide photos/ screenshots to prove my post here and will conduct business in an honorable manner. If anyone is interested in buying my account I'll be asking $750 but am willing to negotiate. Thanks so much. -Kriegs

  8. I am looking to sell an LTI Gemini for $285. The ship has a melt value of $240, as the original upgrade was purchased before the latest price increase. This is still a discount on the current sale price of the Gemini and it does come with LTI. I am verified on Paypal and am looking for verified Paypal buyers only.
  9. Official news from Lando: https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/326607/spaceship-prices
  10. If you're like me, you desperately want to be draped under your prestigious (and woolly) Starfarer captain's blanket while simulating those cold nights alone in space. Well, just like Disco Lando, you can have one! For between $65 (50x60 fleece) to $103 (60x80 Sherpa fleece) you too can have a very snuggly (yet not at all emasculating) blanket just like your favorite crew quarters has. Simply take this image, or the one I adjusted over to www.collage.com and create your own. I'd recommend the Sherpa Fleece for the crispest results and the most warmth. Sign up for the coupon and the 60" x 80" is yours shipped for $103. Stock: just like Disco Lando's Color and contrast adjusted Larger / tiled for more object density thanks to @Shootter If you want it to look exactly the same as in the Starfarer quarters, drag the image all the way left so that the crescent moons and UFOs are at the right edge, as it is in the in game image.

  15. I have a Starfarer with 2 year anniversary insurance in my buy back list. Due to the $300 price increase, I thought there might be an opportunity to trade with someone who wants to get one cheaper than $300. I would be interested in trading for a LTI BMM or a LTI CAT. I would require you to transfer first.

  17. I am selling my account for $1000 USD, Not a gimic I need to liquidate my assets for personal reasons and I know I could never piece out these items for what they are worth so I am short cutting the price for a better sell. The value of the account is about $1,800 total so its a deal. I am PayPal certified and will only sell to others likewise. The original email is not included in the sale so I will need the buyer to send me their email and I will change it on the RSI website and send back the password. Included is the following: Starfarer Aurora MR game package Endevor with supercollider, hangar, science & research modules Hull Palooza game package includes, Hull A x2 / Hull B, C, D, E x1 36,000 UEC credits, $5 UDS store credit, and 101,689 REC credits VFG hangar Revel & York Hangar Selfland Hangar numerous sub flare and such. If you have any questions please ask.
  18. I want to reduce my fleet a little bit so here are nearly all ships I can sell. I will not sell them all and let you decide what I will keep after some are sold. I will also list some rare ships and packages that I can buy back for you, but maybe the prices are not so interesting because I have to pay 19 percent VAT here in germany when buying back nowadays in the RSI store. If you wish to pay with paypal you have to use a verified account. But I will also accept classic bank transfer, bitcoin and cash if you are in my hometown. please contact me via pm if you are interested.

  25. Starfarer Q&A - Collection

    STARFARER Q&A - PART 1 “They like to say that the hardest maneuver to pull off is in-flight refueling. And depending on the ship, sure it can be tough. My brother flies an M50 and yeah, it’s pretty tough to line it up with the nozzle. But there’s no danger. The real deadliest maneuver in a Starfarer is fueling up in the first place. You ever dive into the ionosphere of a gas giant? You lose all visibility, your sensors flicker off… and if you aren’t lucky, you’ll suffer a cracked windshield or worse from ice particles. So that’s the rule on the Treat: fueling operations are in full spacesuit only, every single time.” - Helena Malloy-Vasquez, First Mate, Starfarer Sunshine Treat The 2945 MISC Starfarer is the refueling platform of choice for the United Empire of Earth and nine out of ten major corporations. Rated #1 transport by Ship and Pilot, the Starfarer is a masterpiece of dedicated transport design. Featuring a modular nose mount capable of loading any of a dozen variant utility packages, the Starfarer can be adapted for any mission from fuel gathering to ranged radar support. Onboard refinery equipment and built-in, reinforced hydrogen piping installed throughout the hull mean that the Starfarer isn’t another converted transport: it’s been designed from the ground up to make efficient fuel transfer possible. With the MISC Starfarer, you’ll never run on empty again. - MISC Cavalcade of Transports! brochure, 2945 Greetings Citizens, Last month, we ran a series of Hull series Q&A posts during the concept sale. The idea went over so well that we’ve decided to make it a tradition. All future concept sales will include at least one ‘post launch’ Q&A post. This week, for the Starfarer and Starfarer Gemini sale, we’re answering the questions backers have posted to this thread. We will have additional Q&A posts on Wednesday and Friday, so if your question didn’t show up today, keep watching! Question & Answer Can we get confirmation on whether or not the cargo specifications are related to the ship’s internal cargo bay, and whether or not the Starfarer Gemini’s cargo size is reduced due to the increased mass of armor? The numbers provided for the Starfarer and Starfarer Gemini are the aggregate of their internal and external cargo capacities. Most of the cargo reduction on the Starfarer Gemini is because of changes to the internals, where it will mount more reinforced bulkheads and larger military-related equipment. Will the Starfarer cargo area be able to hold pods for snub fighters and can a Rover fit inside the internal storage area? At this time, we do not expect the exploratory rover to fit inside the Starfarer’s internal bay, although something like a Greycat should. Sizing for the vehicles is still in flux, though, and in the final game the limitation will be purely physical. Does the base model Starfarer have any other advantages over the Gemini outside of increased maneuverability and increased cargo space? Increased maneuverability and cargo space are the key benefits to the standard Starfarer. There will also be differences to the internals and the finished look of the two ships. Will the in-flight refueling be done while moving or stationary or both? In-flight refueling can be conducted either way; while in motion (like an actual aircraft) will be most difficult! Can both Starfarers land on a planet? Can they both land fully loaded? Yes. Unlike the larger Hull series ships, the Starfarer can set down with a full load of cargo. Would the Gemini be available to be obtained in the PU? Yes, absolutely! Anything sold through the website to benefit funding will also be available on the final universe. Are the older Starfarer owners going to get the VFG industrial hanger too? Yes, all Starfarer owners will have access to the VFG industrial hangar (also known as the “asteroid hangar”). Will the Starfarer be upgradeable to use long-range scanner, jump engine, etc, to use it as an exploration ship with a lot of cargo? Yes! There are other, more dedicated explorer ships in the ‘Verse, but the Starfarer is still a customizable platform that can be adapted for roles beyond fuel and transport. How viable is the Starfarer as a solo player ship? Max crew has grown quite a bit on it. Perfectly viable! The Starfarer has had several seats added for its part in Squadron 42, but we don’t see the gameplay changing significantly. Remember that ‘max crew’ refers to the number of people who can have a role at any one time, not the number of people needed to fly the ship in the first place. Will the Gemini variant be branded as MISC or AEGIS? Good question! In our lore, MISC builds the basic chassis of all Starfarers. If this chassis is to become a standard Starfarer, it’s completed in the MISC factory. If it’s being adapted by the military, it’s shipped off to Aegis for completion. (This is based on real life civilian aircraft which are often completed by military contractors for use as sub hunters, AWACs planes, etc.) The formal badge on the Gemini will read Aegis Dynamics, although you can rest assured a great deal of MISC work went into the ship! Can the Starfarer’s underslung fuel tanks be swapped out for holding straight cargo containers? Yes! Standardized Stor-All containers can be used instead of fuel tanks (though if you’re only interested in cargo, a Hull series ship might be a better choice; less space wasted on fuel pipes!) Can you tell us a little bit more about the state of the fuel mechanic? How important is fuel ingame? Will I have to refuel regularly on a long flight? How important is the size of my fuel tank? Is it useful to have a Starfarer on long exploration convoys? The fuel mechanic is still being developed and is likely something that will shift significantly based on actual game balance. That said, the general plan is for fuel to be important but not something you are worried about at every turn. Think of the original Wing Commander or Privateer, where you could run out of afterburner or jump fuel and be forced to travel home very, very slowly… but it wasn’t ever the key danger (jump fuel being the more dangerous of the two, as poor planning could leave you ‘stuck’ in a system without a fueling station.) We expect fuel to be a serious ‘support’ role in Star Citizen. There will be players and NPCs with Starfarers serving the masses… and the importance of fuel will go up depending on the nature of the mission. For instance, a military campaign against the Vanduul might be significantly benefited by supporting Starfarers, as the ships in battle will be taking damage and expending supplies quickly. A force of transports moving through safe space, however, might never need in-flight refueling as they will always be close to a planet. Will we Be able to Race in Old Vanderval and other Tracks Big rig racing Eventually! Right now, it’s likely the Starfarer would become stuck in the ‘gates’. (A racing Starfarer has already appeared in Star Citizen’s fiction.) If the Starfarer G is a military variant , can it transport one Hornet with a docking Clamp or is it possible to buy in the later PU ? The Starfarer Gemini is not intended to transport fighters. Current prototypes suggest that the midget fighter attachment for the Hull series would not really ‘fit’ on the Starfarer (as it would be blocked by the sides of the hull.) What does the Starfarer have to offer over the similarly sized Hull C? Why would you want to buy a Starfarer specificaly over the other space trucks? Fuel is the name of the game here. While the Hull C can store fuel pods (and the Starfarer can store cargo pods,) the Starfarer is further designed to do something with them. The hull superstructure has the ‘plumbing’ for actually using the fuel in those tanks, rather than just storing them. Can Starfarer be retrofitted into a heavy (but vulnerable) gunship like AC-130? We aren’t in a position to test this yet, but: quite possibly. The Starfarer (especially the Gemini version) has a number of weapons hardpoints and other modular areas. We’ve already developed a potential ‘missile pod’ that can be placed in the nose instead of the refueling equipment. (Source: link) Starfarer Q&A - Part 2 “Welcome, new pilots and crewmen! Many of you likely dreamed about flying fighters and taking the battle to the enemy, stenciling your first Vanduul silhouette to the side of your ship. I’m here to remind you that you have an even more important job: keeping our boys and girls in the fight. Because of the fuel and support you provide, men who would otherwise perish in the cold of space will live to fight another day. No one here will judge your dedication to the Empire because of the ship you fly; you are an essential part of the process. I remind and encourage all pilots, crew and boom operators to familiarize themselves with the electrostatic hazards guide. Around here, killer aliens are the least of your worries.” - General Danis Kutler, Space Refueling Command “The weirdest thing anyone ever transported in a Starfarer? One word: spiders. Exploratory services has these three old Starfarer [Gemini]s that are slotted for supporting scientific runs but spend most of their time rotting on base. I had this idea to see how Terran spiders acclimatize on an artificial biosphere, so we kitted out a couple of their fuel pods with environmentals and we filled the tanks with a hell of a lot of spiders. Anyway, somebody [expletive deleted] up and they were all exposed to vacuum. So I guess the strangest cargo was dead spiders.” - Dr. Clyde Burroughs, Noted Exoarachnologist Greetings Citizens, Last month, we ran a collection of Hull series Q&A posts during the concept sale. The idea went over so well that we’ve decided to make it a tradition. All future concept sales will include at least one ‘post launch’ Q&A post. This week, for the Starfarer and Starfarer Gemini sale, we’re answering the questions backers have posted to this thread. We will have additional Q&A posts on Friday, so if your question didn’t show up today, keep watching! Today’s post also includes questions selected from the Star Citizen subreddit! Question & Answer How does CIG intend the Starfarer to perform in flight? 3x TR4 main thrusters and 14x TR3 mavThrusters means it will turn quite well but accelerate very very slowly. Is that intentional? To quote an earlier Chris Roberts game, the Starfarer will “maneuver like a pregnant yacht.” The standard model will maneuver more cleanly than the Gemini, but it will still be significantly slower than anything like a Hornet or even a Constellation. (Often times, the number of thrusters is defined by a ship’s shape, not because you can bring all of them to bear at once.) Do either of the Starfarer models come pre-fitted with a refinery? Also does the Gemini come with the means to collect fuel or does it come as stock with the missile system? Both variants come with limited fuel processing tools. The Gemini comes with both the external nozzle and the missile pack (in the fiction, Geminis typically mount the nozzle rather than the missiles.) Will the Starfarer Gemini suffer a reduced modularity, because of bigger engines, weapons, shields and less cargo space? This will limit some of the internal customization, as there will not be as much room as the standard model. The room system is still in the works, though, so the degree to which this is applicable is unknown at this time. Will there be any other Starfarer variants? There aren’t any in the works at the moment. Never say never, but we typically only add variants later if we have a compelling idea that we think will improve the game. But don’t plan for a ‘Super Starfarer’ any time soon! Will both versions able to have the same upgrades, or will there be some limitations due to how each is designed? The only limitations will be those introduced by equipment sizing; the Gemini can mount larger guns, shields and engines which can’t transfer back to the standard model. Everywhere else, parts should be interchangeable! EVA required to operate boom? No, the refueling equipment can be operated internally. We are playing with a mechanic in which it is faster or more efficient if operated from the external point. Which component(s) is/are responsible for the loss of cargo capacity? And can it/they be removed as well? (StarG) The primary reduction in cargo capacity is because of internal armored bulkheads which can not be removed. The larger powerplant also plays a role (and it can be reduced in size.) How many ships can one full Starfarer(G) refuel ? Like 6 Hornets , 2 Connies or even something much larger like Idris ? We don’t have an exact number yet, as it may change for game balancing, but the general thought is that it can refuel about a squadron of fighters (roughly a dozen) or a couple of larger ships. How will Starfarer Gemini be more of an Aegis design? Besides the ship interface? You will ultimately see some Aegis styling in the larger, Gemini-unique components (such as the main engine) and the internals (which are finished completely by Aegis.) Will the Gemini be available for purchase in the PU, or will it only be attainable through capture? The Gemini will be available in the persistent universe; while it’s flown by the military, it isn’t a particularly classified piece of technology. Geminis are sold not only to the UEE government, but to other powers and organizations. Will “official” fuel stations buy fuel from you while in the Starfarer? Yes. Can we refuel Alien ships like the Banu Merchantman or the Xi’An Scout with the Starfarer, or are there multiple fuel types? At the moment we’re envisioning only one type of fuel. If that changes, the Starfarer would be able to support multiple types. Can the Starfarer’s carry cargo & fuel at the same time i.e. Left side fuel, Right Side cargo! Yes! This would be accessed by the cargo management system we recently detailed during the Hull series release. Can the tanks explode? Can they be used as tactical weapons mid-flight? Under certain circumstances, the tanks can certainly explode. We intend to work out the actual physics, so it won’t be a direct ‘exploding barrel’ situation (hydrogen doesn’t explode in a vacuum in the way you may be imagining.) As for tactical weapons… well, that’s up to you! (There’s a potential Starfarer variant: an armored minelayer.) Can you go into any detail regarding the difference in the variants internals? (I want my Gemini to have that fish tank very badly) We can’t offer too many additional details, but rest assured your fish will have a home In both the Gemini and standard Starfarer (unless you swap out the captain’s quarters for another room!) Will the source of natural fuel that Starfarers collect fuel from (i.e gas giants) be relatively close to safe space? Also, will the amount of Starfarers collecting at these sources affect the output/production? Will these resources ever run out for a particular location? There will be gas giants throughout the galaxy; roughly 75% of the star systems we have built to date include at least one. The number of Starfarers shouldn’t really deplete them: gas giants are very, very big! The cargo capacity of the Starfarer changed from the Hull B Q&A (4043.52 SCU) to the Starfarer Design Update (3321 SCU). What changed over the week? Is it a difference in container efficiency of using cube shaped boxes vs round barrels in the exterior hold? This change occurred when we received the new, more detailed model to measure. You will likely see similar fluctuations with cargo on many ships as they come online, although they should all stay in a similar range. Other than fuel, what other liquid or gaseous cargo will the Starfarer be the primary choice to carry. We haven’t finished the cargo registry yet, but the options are endless. Water will be a big deal (imagine being called to help with a drought after a solar flare) as will all sorts of typical commodities: crude oil, space milk, liquid oxygen, nitrogen, melted cheese (okay, maybe not that last one.) Where will the refueling ports be on other ships? This will differ depending on the ship; though they will typically be forward of any given canopy to allow for ease of docking. Will the Starfarer be able to refuel itself? A Starfarer can refuel itself by processing fuel from its tanks. (That is to say, no need for a second Starfarer.) How many stars could a Starfarer fare if a Starfarer could fare stars? 42! (source: link) STARFARER Q&A - PART 3 ”The G2G Gemini is the galaxy’s premiere armored refueler. With the capacity to support a squadron of Hornets on a multi-system combat assignment, the Gemini is how the tip of the spear stays sharp. Based on the award-winning MISC Starfarer chassis, the Gemini has been rebuilt from the ground up to military specifications. Optional weapons packages ranging from missile launchers to minelayers allow this ‘turtle’ to pack a real punch! The Gemini is available for broad use today, and is highly recommended for anyone operating on the frontiers or beyond. “ - Aegis Dynamics Weapons of War! brochure, 2943 “TOP FIVE REJECTED STARFARER VARIANTS 5) Jarfarer: Carries jams, jellies and UEE Marines. 4) Carfarer: Can’t hurt to add wheels! 3) Charfarer: Packed full of delicious Terra BBQ. 2) Scarfarer: Exactly the same ship, but pointier. 1) Aarghfarer: Don’t ask.” - MISCellaneous Quarterly (internal corporate newsletter) Greetings Citizens, Last month, we ran a collection of Hull series Q&A posts during the concept sale. The idea went over so well that we’ve decided to make it a tradition. All future concept sales will include at least one ‘post launch’ Q&A post. This week, for the Starfarer and Starfarer Gemini sale, we’re answering questions backers have posted to this thread. Question & Answer With the Starfarer’s designed modular rooms, will those be unique to the Starfarer hull? Or are modular rooms being designed with cross-chassis use in mind, to allow more variety with less work by designers and artists? This will depend largely on the room; some ships (especially larger ones like the Idris and Javelin) will have rooms that could apply to multiple ships, whereas smaller ships like the Starfarer will likely end up with primarily unique rooms (although models and props can be reused between them, for ease of art and development! So while the physical room may be shaped differently, the same desk or aquarium might appear on multiple ships.) Can ALL the fuel and refining equipment be removed from either variant in favor for an all-cargo carrying version? No, you’ll always have internal fuel support systems taking up some space. Think of it this way: on the Hull series, the cargo is fully separate from the ship and the job of the ship is only picking it up and dropping it off. On the Starfarer, the ship has to interface directly with the fuel pods in flight… so there’s all sorts of internal plumbing to support this. In the PU, will it be more difficult to obtain the Star-G due to reputation requirements with a UEE military faction? Yes, the Gemini will likely be produced in significantly lower numbers. Does it come with a jump engine? Yes. Will there be other variants of Starfarer in the future, or Gemini is the only known modification? The Gemini is the only variant currently planned. Will we be able to use the Starfarer to refuel the rest of our fleet in hangar? For instance can you take your Starfarer out and collect and refine fuel and use that fuel for another ship you take out next and store the remaining fuel in some personal depot somewhere? We don’t have personal depots ready yet, but you can store the pods in your hangar. Otherwise, the answer is yes you will be able to use the Starfarer to manage your own fleet. Clearly the external cargo space of the SF can handle multiple types of cargo, but what about the internal cargo space? Can that only be used for fuel? For internal fuel, the answer is ‘anything that fits.’ It is not limited to just fuel. The stats page and ship info list the Starfarer and Gemini as having the same weapons, engines, and mass. Is this an oversight? If they haven’t yet been determined, it’s ok to tell us, it would be a lot less confusing. This is an oversight – the Gemini has one size larger turrets and engines. Because the models are very similar and components have not been finished, it’s not possible to measure a more accurate mass yet. Does the “Gemini” variant show that gas will become a strategic resource in future limited by possible trade embargoes for instance? While it’s possible in some situations that fuel will become such a resource, the existence of the Gemini doesn’t indicate this. The Gemini was created because the military needs a supply chain. In the past, we’ve told stories about fighter pilots on the front lines without filling out the entire universe… with Star Citizen, we want to show you all the support systems necessary for a universe to make sense. Can we expect soon an indepth article about fuels, liquids in general and the whole economy in the verse Yes! The fuel system and related balancing are still in development, but when we have a solid prototype in place we will present it to you. The economy will be fleshed out in many articles as we approach the launch of the persistent universe. Does the Gemini carry less actual fuel as cargo than the regular Starfarer can? Yes. I’m interested in the possibility of skimming fuel from gas giants. Any idea where they are going with that? Seems like the perfect chance for procedural generation, since you don’t even need a ground. This is one of the Starfarer’s primary goals. You can see in one of the concept pieces we put together for this promotion: the ‘filter’ is in the nose of the ship, so you need to fly down into the outer atmosphere to collect the fuel. When flying a Starfarer, will NPCs ever hail us looking for an in-flight fill-up? This seems like it could be a good way to make a little extra money for the fuel (would cost more than a normal station refill), but the request could also be a pirate trap. Absolutely! Any role we imagine in Star Citizen will be used for NPC mission generation. What is the advantage of refined vs unrefined fuel? Refined fuel can be used, unrefined fuel cannot. The Starfarer’s equipment will refine fuel much more slowly than a dedicated refinery, but quickly enough for personal use. So you’ll be able to choose between trucking vast quantities of fuel to a refinery, or refining a more limited amount immediately for your own use. What have the developers envisioned as far as mishaps during inflight refueling? What would be the results of a collision with the refueling boom? What happens to a Starfarer or refueling craft if say one of those crafts explodes mid-refueling. These situations are all bad news; we want refueling to be a challenging process, so failures and collisions should cause significant damage to ships. There seems to be a belief that an explorer would be able to hire a Starfarer for support on long trips, allowing the player to take advantage of a near unlimited supply of fuel. That seems like a good plan! Having a tanker with refinery capabilities along with you will significantly expand your range. (There will be other limitations that will likely prevent you from going forever, chief among them onboard munitions and system damage.) (source: link)
