Aegis Idris Frigate

 If this is the one thing that you have in your hanger that doesn't have LTI, you're already making out like a bandit even if insurance costs are negligible like CIG has always said. 

We won't know that for sure until the system is actually implemented in the game. They also used to say the base hull of the ships would be cheap and what would be expensive would be the loadout. But when looking at the actual ingame cost of ships, it doesn't look like the idea held. 

However, they may come to realize that because the game can crash and ship can be blown up due to bugs, they really need to protect ships bought with real money to avoid an endless pit of drama once the game gets released (maybe that 72 month insurance flood during the sale is a step toward LTI for all ships bought in the cash shop). 

Additionally, I m not sure restricting LTI means something currently because of the amount of LTI tokens being exchanged then CCU'ed. If anything, it makes people less likely to spend money in CIG's shop and more on the grey market.

Honestly, I really like the idea of the Idris-K upgrade kit. I'll probably be getting one.

The three-ship hangar was always a big draw as I imagined the Idris would be great as a force multiplier in skirmishes, or as an escort for a heavily laden mercantile vessel. I love the mental image of Imperium miners being raided, then suddenly saved as an Idris warps in and releases its fighters. My only concern (with the P, at least) was that the ship itself might not have the best weaponry for those kinds of fights.

Anti-ship missiles? Yes please! Automated turrets with solid tracking? Excellent! And a bad-ass laser for when you encounter a pesky mid-sized ship? Perfect.

Very happy with this addition.

Idris Update

 
Today at 12:04 pm
Hi everyone,

We’ve received a lot of feedback surrounding the Idris Upgrade Kit that was made available in December, 2018, and wanted to take the time to offer a few clarifications.

Insurance
In the past, insurance was only made available to ship hulls. As we’ve progressed in the development of Star Citizen, we’re getting closer to having a need for a system to insure items as well. This is something that we’re still actively working on, so we don’t have full details to how this system will work just yet, but we’re eager to lock it all down and share that information with you in the future. I do however have an update on the Idris Upgrade Kit. As it currently stands, the kit shows that it has 72 months of insurance, which will be changing and retroactively updated to LTI in the very near future.

Upgrading your Idris-P
We received a lot of feedback surrounding the upgradeability of the Idris-P, and a desire for more information about if the Idris-P will be able to fully match an Idris-M via upgrading in-game. We can now confirm that we are planning to eventually add manufacturer shipyards (capital ship dealers) in-game which will help facilitate this conversion. For example, there will be an opportunity to take your Idris-P into a major authorized Aegis shipyard, where they can perform a conversion to an Idris-M for a substantial in-game fee. 

Idris Upgrade Kit Usability on Idris-M
In the same way that the Idris-P can use the railgun that is present on the Idris-M, the Idris-M can also make full use of the items included in the Upgrade Kit, should you desire to do so. This means that you’ll be able to attach the beam weapon and the missile turret to your Idris-M should you choose to do so. We encountered a few limitations to utilizing the full Upgrade Kit on the Idris-M, such as missing hardpoints for the 4x PDS turrets, but to facilitate these fitting, we will be adding those hardpoints to the Idris-M to make this functionality work.

Really sad the missiles(torps?) aren't there in the Idris-P. They were there originally (front top and back bottom) shame they are gone (several years ago). 

That is not my question really. You see the Idris-M and Idris-P "were" meant to be the same ship, Just the Navy had a surplus and where/are selling them with just the bare bones and scaled down weapons. The Idris-K, has switched the front turret with (anti-fighter) missile launcher (only 2x 8 missiles). We know that the Idris has the main missile system (behind the front turret). What I want to know is it possible to mount Idris-P(K) the same missile system? Normally I would have assumed that it was possible. However, it means not just the misile rack, but it's entire re-arming and storage system as well.

The more and more time goes one the very different the Idris-P/K and Idris-M differ.

      Creating a general thread for the Aegis Ship Manufacturer like the others....

      AEGIS DYNAMICS
      They say old habits die hard, and in the case of Aegis Dynamics, that's certainly a good thing. With a long and storied history of distinguished service in support of the UEE war machine and the private sector, Aegis isn't breaking the mold. But, that's just because their mold is so damn solid.
      NOV26 FREE TEST FLIGHTSHead to the IAE West at Desmond Memorial Convention Center in Lorville to try out this manufacturer's ships. Have fun and fly safe.
