MISC Reliant - Mini Hauler & Variants

Recommended Posts

According to the newsletter that I got in my email, you can get a $10 discount if you CCU an Aurora (any variant) to a Reliant Kore. Apparently you can't use store credit for it though so it will have to be fresh cash.

 

Ofcourse the original price of the Reliant during concept was $50 and got raised to $65 now so you will still pay more than the concept sale, but if you really wanted that Reliant Kore you can now get it for only $5 extra (compared to the concept sale).

 

Just FYI! Personally I'm going to stick to my Avenger as a light cargo hauler. ;)

I am still debating between the Kore, Titan, and Tana. The Kore has more space and the Titan has a very different look. The tana is great as it carries about (??) as much as the titan but has more amenities (but probably sacrifices combat. Has CIG confirmed that if  take the module out of the tana I will get a Kore?

 

Secondly, how much do you guys think the tana will go up in price for the anniversary sale? I have a cci from a kore to a tana and I was wondering I could use the price bump to increase the "value" (I know it doesn't increase melt value) of my pledge. How much will the herald go for? If the Tana and herald are the same price at the anniversary sale, I might be able to ride the price boost as the herald near completion! :)

The reliant is pretty bad in combat right now and that's in part due to it's odd shape making it an easy target. I know they want to boost its shield power for the Tana and that's what will give it an edge, but if you want a fighter there's bound to be a better ship, and if you want a trader, a Hull A or base freelancer is going to be better anyways 

You can use the price bump like that! I actually have some Titan --> Kore upgrades from when they were the same price and I use them for CCUs as free cash.

This is peculiar. The MISC line just went on sale for the Anniversary Expo and I was excited because I could upgrade my original $50 KORE to a TANA Skirmisher for +$15.

But it turned out that the TANA did not go up in price, causing the CCU to be $0. That was a pleasant surprise as I figured that it would also go up by $15 as the KORE went from $50 to $65 when it was flightready.

I'm not complaining though as I now have a TANA Skirmisher with LTI for $50. :)

I wanted the tana to go up 15 dollars. I had a ccu from the 315p to the tana. I wanted to get the $15 price boost! :gr_sad:.

 

By the way, does anyone know what will hold more, the Avenger titan or the reliant tana?

Avenger will hold more. The Tana uses up most of its cargo space for sleeper pods and weapon racks. So I'd be surprised if it has more than s SCU of cargospace left with all that stuff inside. Titan is also supposed to have more cargo than the regular Kore already. Like 8 SCU vs 6 SCU or something I think.

Then what is the point of the kore?

I own the Kore and an upgrade (unapplied) to the Titan Renegade. I like the Titan for it's cargo space. The Kore is an awesome idea on paper but I just can't see myself being successful with a vertically winged ship, as much as I love the 'B-Wing' style. And when you compare each of the cargo areas, Titan has significantly more space.

Reminds me of how much a beautiful ship the Reliant is... If it wasn't for the wonky physics, lack of sleeping quarters and sub-par weaponry, this would be my go-to daily use ship for quick cargo hauling jobs.

Yes, CIG definitely needs to fix the Reliant's flight characteristics, because it is un-flyable in combat. It's completely inconsistent with how agile the Reliant was supposed to be thanks to its Xi'An thrusters and other tech.

It seems like the Reliant was rushed through the ship production pipeline and made flight-ready so CIG could sell the variant models and make some fast money. Then after it was released, they forgot about it and moved on to the next cash cow.

I still own a Reliant and test fly it after every update to see if it's been fixed. No luck. The only reason I'm keeping it is I kinda want to RP as an entry level player, start out with small jobs, and see what progression in the PU is really like. It will make me appreciate my Connie and larger ships more. ;) But if the Reliant flies like it does now, I'm not going to bother with it. The other reason I haven't melted it is that $50 in store credit doesn't buy much, and it's not worth using a quarterly buy back token on the Reliant.

Exactly on the same boat here... If it doesn't do well in 3.0 I guess I'll have to resort to the Avenger for the time being.

At  the very least, we can be rest assured that since SC is still in development, the Reliant could go the route of the Cutlass and become the ship it was destined to be.

      Hi everyone /
      I mainly have ships/vehicles that are either from lore, concept, development or being re-worked, and I constantly add more to the albums.
      NOTE: I've started to keep/restore the albums for ships that are now flyable as I've had a few requests for them.

      Let's post our ideas for Star Citizen. The galaxy's a huge place, full of curiosities and splendor! Please be polite and have fun, while we discuss in detail the additions we want to see in SC. Constructive criticism is always welcome, keep it friendly... 
      Here are a few ideas I will start us off with:
      -Planets-
      Planets should have highly varied biomes and environments. These should include ocean planets, desert worlds, jungle moons, cavernous lands, ice planets, swamps, (and a personal favorite) lava worlds! It would be cool to have various atmospheric conditions, such as excessive heat or cold or toxicity, even radioactivity, which could have specified suits designed for protection from those environments (without which players would perish!). Planets should also definitely have varying levels of gravity, some with no gravity at all, and some with intense gravitational pull and pressure, suit required. Gas giants would be really cool, where traversing the upper atmosphere would be OK. There could be floating outposts, etc. Then moving too close to the core could crush most ships... Also would be cool to see asteroid-based outposts, with subterranean areas.
      -Weather-
      Weather should factor in on at least some planets, but not all. Some planets should remain placid, while others could have weather cycles such as: sandstorms, blizzards, high winds, etc. It would also be interesting to have electrical/radiation storms where again, special shielding would be required to survive. Another interesting addition would be meteor showers, perhaps not damaging to the player in most cases... Of course, the most intense weather should be on planets with lesser city-populations. There should also be 'weather' cycles in space the likes of radiation/electrical storms, where ships' shields would be rendered ineffective. Perhaps here or there, a neutronic wave front (Star Trek, Ahem)! Deadly nebula!
      -Ships-
      The ships so far are absolutely bad-ass. Can hardly put it into words just how right they look and feel. I do have one minor issue to discuss regarding player immersion: Planetary entry/re-entry seems a bit off... It feels somewhat awkward orienting the ship into a nose-dive and then accelerating toward the planet. While that should still be an option for entry, it seems lacking, if it's the only way. Players should be allowed to let their ships drift slowly downward towards the surface (with a horizontal orientation relative to ground), all the while getting pulled to greater and greater speeds due to gravity. Currently it seems as though there is no gravity, requiring ships to nose-dive and hit the thrusters. The level of gravity should also have effects on how quickly ships take off, and how much fuel is consumed. Also some of the more lightweight craft should be capable of water-landing and flotation, some, not all.
      -Weaponry-
      Weapons are also looking pretty nice, and I can't wait to hunt some bounties and pirates with the Scourge Cannon! Turrets on ships are awesome and so are the weapons additions to the ships main systems. Weapons turrets on ships should not be automated. Automation would detract from the challenge of the game, and we never want that! Instead the player should be able to either hire NPCs or other players to man different positions aboard their ship. Also it seems some of the infantry firearms are being slightly 'overdone', so to speak. For example the Devastator shotgun seemingly has way too much level of detail and unnecessary bulk added to it. My suggestion is to lean more on the side of realism. I know it's Sci-Fi. Still I hope devs don't get hung up on making things like fancy-diamond-encrusted-platinum-laser cannons with under-barrel flame throwers..! It would be amazing to see (in rare cases), Orbital Weapons Platforms that could, if accessed, rain supreme firepower down on the planet's surface, destroying small outposts, structures or towns... Of course it would be necessary to make accessing it an extreme challenge.
      Accessories are nice. But keep away from over-extravagant weapon design.
      -Exploration- 
      Exploration should be the fundamental, key point of the game. While some may argue that it is space battles, I tend to disagree. With so many space craft, vehicles and weapons, the gameplay will quickly become boring and the equipment redundant if there is not a vast amount of exploration. Here are a few thoughts on aspects of exploration: Artifacts, Flora and Fauna. Scattered throughout the verse there could be a plethora of different types of Artifacts to be found, only through rigorous exploring. There should be ancient ruins with old alien technology, perhaps rare weapons. There should be Obelisks and Pyramids and rare trinkets that could be sold or held as trophies. There could be mysterious devices, like the Orbs in Mass Effect (the first game) with strange properties. There could be alien tech that could be found and then saved for use at a far later date. Regarding Flora and Fauna, there could be a huge variety of harvesting options for certain crafting items. There really ought to be many creatures, perhaps mostly neutral/friendly. However some animals, in rare cases could turn out to be hostile, and highly challenging to face. Perhaps giant worms, or insectoids! Another thing could be infected worlds, or derelict ships (think Dead Space, or The Thing) where your only choice is to fight for survival or run for your life. There should also be intact derelicts. We've seen plenty of demolished ones. Some should be intact, abandoned in space, or even on land. Exploration should not, and I can't stress this enough, should not stem solely or mostly from missions! Let the missions be vast and varying in type by all means, a multitude of missions is always welcome. But please don't conflate missions and side quests, with exploration. 
       
      -Armor & Apparel-
      The armor should of course have good variety. Weight should factor in, which I believe it currently does. Also there should definitely be highly specialized suits for specific tasks. Of course there'll be a space suit for EVA in outer space, but adding other specializations for other armor sets/suits would be great too. There should be a set more suited for enduring intense heat, or cold or radiation. There should also mostly be non-EVA capable sets IMO. Body armor should not be conflated with EVA suits, and they should for the most part be separate, with a few exceptions. It would be cool to see a lot of options other than  simple armor for combat and space suits for EVA. One thought would be a stealth-suit with either quiet movement or even invisibility. Mostly I'm hoping it will prove an actual challenge to obtain armors, so that everyone isn't immediately buffed just after they begin playing. Let there be lots of varying, quirky outfits to be found.
      -Miscellaneous-
      NPCs for hire or available as crew members should use a rating system the likes of the one used in Metal Gear Solid V. They could have a certain class of career like 'linguist' or 'gunner' or 'medic', and within that specialty a certain set of ratings. Players should be able to activate distress beacons (false or genuine). If a player's ship is captured, they should be given the option to fight aboard the enemy ship in order to escape (think Han Solo and co, the capture of Millennium Falcon!).
      Where are all the AIs? This is the future after all... There should be robots of some kind or another, even perhaps a sentient machine race!
      There should also be a minimal amount of spawn/respawn actions. I realize this is counter-intuitive, given there's a massive universe to traverse. But it will add to the replay and return-to-game value; if people can easily spawn their ships and/or fast travel around it will make things overly-easy. It's nice that there's a wait-timer for summoning ships (at least destroyed ones). However, if a ship is not at the station at which you are staying, it should take time to arrive near you, and there should be a fuel cost and fee. Having all your ships easily at your fingertips will take away from the immersion and challenge of the game. It should also be more challenging IMO, to acquire cash. Gaining millions of credits should take a very long time. The quicker people progress in the game, the quicker the MMO will die.
      I don't believe there should be a 'difficulty setting' option. The universe in general should prove pretty damn challenging, with areas of extreme and lesser challenges. Some mini-games would also be cool, so long as they remain within the Persistent Universe. Game modes are a bad idea. It's understandable at this point, given there are players currently in the game who want something working. But later on, when development is (mostly) "complete", having different game-modes will detract from the main MMO.
      All hoverbikes should remain as hoverbikes, and not be turned into flying-space-hoverbikes! Please remove the flight-function for hoverbikes. Having flight for them is ridiculous and totally misses the point of a hoverbike. While I do agree that they should have some (slight) altitude control and perhaps a jump/boost, they should not  be able to simply fly away, especially up into space. A hoverbike is like a speeder from Star Wars, it's not for flight; only for elevated, fast, ground travel! This goes for all ships and vehicles; if they have a specialty let them stick to that specialty, no blurring lines, except perhaps in rare cases.
