M50 stuffed inside a Freelancer MAX

Recommended Posts

The M50 seem to fit inside the MAX's hold.

Do you think CIG would allow to load small ships in the hold just like any ordinary cargo?

I'd take it as far as to enable a small ship to land and takeoff from the hold in space just like the Connie and Merlin.

I can already fit my Graycat in there :P

I think Star Citizen should be able to haul ships and ship parts in Cargo Bays (if they fit) ------ but they should be treated as Cargo where they have to be manually loaded and off-loaded.  Only Ships that function as Carriers should be able to Launch and Land ships without it being just "Cargo". 

 

Same thing applies to real life.  Truckers ship race cars all over the place :)

Yea, they could just code in an option to turn a small ship into cargo containers (think disassembled wing) so they fit inside the cargo bay. We'd just put it together at the next docking hangar.

On Geekdomo's StarCast Podcast - http://www.twitch.tv/wtfosaurus (now live - I'll post the recording later) - he also goes into upgrade clarifications and Connie Clarifications.

 

There was a Question about the M50 fitting inside a Constellation.  Ben replied by saying that they had a recent meeting on this... and thinks that I can fit in the Connie (since it is so small).  This means they intend to have the possibility of Hauling smaller ships inside of Larger ships (if it fits in their cargo hold).  There was NO DISCUSSION about the M50 being able to "Launch or Land" in the Connie ----- so it will "probably" be treated as Cargo ONLY and you'll probably need a Carrier type of Ship like the Idris to launch and land ships.

      I've just gotta know if this is a common "issue."
      I saw that exchanging my F7C-S Hornet GHOST for a Freelance DUR was $0 because they cost the same base price (I didn't know you could even exchange ships of equal value.) I went ahead with it knowing I could just switch it back if I didn't like it. Instead of giving me a Freelancer DUR, what the upgrade did instead was not only keep the GHOST, but also threw in an extra Hornet and a standard-class Freelancer.

      I mean I'm not upset- At the end of the day I've got three ships now, but none of them are actually what I meant to get. They all show up in my hanger, each can be summoned and customized in the universe, and I can even request insurance for them.
      I could always try to upgrade my ship to the GHOST then back again but I'm a bit worried about that, I don't want to break it anymore than it already is. Might as well let sleeping dogs lie, I know that after awhile everything will probably be back to normal.
      Has this happened to anyone else? Maybe not exactly the same, but something along these lines?

      Ever start one of those missions to pick up some random box in space only to realize that your ship doesn't have a cargo hold?
      Well, now you don't have to worry about where to put that critical cargo or blackbox!  Just "strap" it to the roof with our patent non-slip invisible roof rack!

      Don't worry, it won't come off in hyperspace either!

      All you need to worry about is how do you get it down from up there!

      NOW only 99,999 credits at your local dealer!
       
      Satire post, just found a funny bug in Star Citizen 3.0 while attempting to deliver a picked-up box in space.  I was trying to see if I could put the box into the Co-pilot seat and it just "stuck" itself to the roof of the cockpit instead.  Thought I'd share and see if anyone else got some amusement from this.  
       
      EDIT:  I was able to get it off the top when I sat in the co-pilot seat and quickly attempted to pick the box up as the cockpit started to close.  It started to slide down the cockpit length at which I then exited the vehicle and I appeared suddenly standing on top of the hornet.  I hopped down, delivered the box, and completed the mission!

      I'm excited for this series for many reasons.  The mechwarrior fan in me is very excited to start seeing how ship customization is coming along as we are moving from Design Docs and into documentation on how it's currently implemented.  Also the ship repair fan in me is very focused on ship components as I feel the largest role I look forward to playing will be efficiently getting modules back into operation during battles.
       
      Starting with the Careers and Roles doc, it's light on new info for a veteran, but a killer starting point for new players interested in starting the game.  I'm happy to see Support ships separate from Industrial ships.  I feel a lot of players clump them together.  Also interesting is how luxury touring falls under exploration.  It makes sense, I just never thought about it I guess.  Pathfinder is a neat new subcategory
