If you log off it should disappear in a minute just like any other ship with a bed, or without a bed it seems.

That is not the way I read this :

 

Since the ship cannot dock in our hangars, does it persist in the universe when we log out?

No, we do not intend for ships to be always ‘at risk’ just because they don’t fit in your Hangar. Standard landing areas will keep the workshop and drive sections safe while you land the Explorer in your hangar. (Of course, if you leave it in orbit of some unexplored planet the story is quite different!)

The way I read this is that any ship that is not docked or in a hangar might be at risk if you log off (now that I think about it, it could also be that the tail section is only at risk of being spotted and boarded when you are still logged on and exploring with the front explorer section .... that would make sense)

Definitely that last bit.  They aren't going to make your ship vulnerable because you spent five hours getting somewhere and now you need to attend to real life.  Unless your ship is the Bagel Carrier, in which case you're screwed.

I can't source it right now, but I remember for certain hearing or reading that one thing they wanted to curb was the alt+F4 salvage play. If you are booted from the game or log off in hostile area, your ship will be vulnerable for a certain period of time. What amount of time that is has not yet been disclosed. It has also been stated that even ship such as the Javelin, which players have paid a considerable amount of real life money for, will most likely not be persistent and would be removed from the game after log off or disconnect. I will try at some point to find this information.

I remember typing that out and I can't find it.  Frustrating.

lol Endeavor "Spring Break" BUC, now you do not have to travel half way across the galaxy for your spring break, join us on the Endeavor where the party never ends.

The "Spring Break" BUC includes:

- 4 biodomes with swimmingpool, sandy beaches, open air discos and bars

- 1 trillion Watt Dolby Atmos8 sound system that will blow the bikinis off any girl on the beach

- Custom Sir-Mix-A-Lot drink dispensers which can deliver any mixed drink you can think of in any form you want !

- 4 extra maintenance robots to clean up all the vomit and other assorted bodily fluids

- a high throughput chem lab so you never run out of recreational drugs (included in the chem lab is an Automedic Bed for rapid recovery in case of overdoses)

 

Party On Dudes ....:P

I can't speak for @Chimaera, but if someone just tried to blow me up and then, in their infinite wisdom, actually spawns on my ship, they're getting escorted to the nearest airlock, if not shot dead immediately upon resurrection.

Also, I'm assuming you can lock doors, so, it would be kind of hard for a nude pirate to do much of anything except beg for mercy.

A cool feature would be if anyone who has attacked you or yours in the last, say 24 hours, can't use your stuff.

If I have it my way, such an attack would result in permanent blacklisting from not just my ship, but all affiliated medical services.

So something occurred to me about this ship.

I know the explorer cab cannot jump without the rest.

But what happens if the Explorer cab goes say "exploring"

are the other two components able to jump?  Or are they pretty much stranded?  What happens when the explorer cab is damaged or destroyed while exploring?

Ben said the module / aft section has no ability to maneuver (even if they could fire the thrusters to go straight ahead).  My impression from what Ben has said is that when the explorer cab detaches that the main body has to sit in on stationary spot (not being able to move at all)

Sounds like to me, that when they release that "defense pod" for the endeavor they should equip it with a secondary bridge. this would allow both halves to maneuver independently.

eg) i'm going to check out this anomaly, that looks dangerous but my second in command will take the workshop back to a safe position in case things go badly and they need to book it...

All I can figure is that there must not be any maneuvering thrusters towards the front section of the trailer as it were.  Although you could still steer, albeit poorly, by using the engines and aft maneuvering thrusters.  Like pushing a shopping cart backwards.  A U.S. shopping cart that is. Not one of those crazy all-wheels-castering jobs like they have in Europe.

That almost seems like a fatal design flaw.  It would make taking out an endeavor as easy as taking out the easier piece to destroy.
