MISC RAZOR

Recommended Posts

tell me again why a ship with 10 maneuvering thrusters needs flaps, ailerons and elevators? Fuel efficiency maybe? default_laugh.png


I mean, there's a lot of flavor things in SC that don't necessarily have real purpose, but what I thought was that the fighter supposedly is much lighter than other ships and has some kind of special material for that purpose. My guess is it's to keep it from wobbling in atmospheric flight due to the lack of real wings like on the M50.

Now we have to see the balance between thrust and manoevrability 
The racer lineup seems to have now a few contenders (350R, M50, Mustang Gamma, P52, 85x and now the Razor) this will surely add diversity and allow us to choose the ship that best fit our "drive style" :wub:

I don't think all this ships are in the same class

MISC Celebrates 50 Years

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/16599-MISC-Celebrates-50-Years

50 years is a major milestone, traditionally commemorated by making adventurous, brave, and occasionally reckless decisions. Choosing to try new experiences, opening life’s throttle and seeing where it takes us.

Razor_EX_Front_02.jpg

Some may refer to this as a mid-life crisis, but here at MISC we embrace it as an expression of individuality and vitality.

In 2898 the New Horizon Speedway opened on Green, ushering in what many consider the modern era of the Murray Cup. That same year, a MISC ship set a time on the new course that is yet to be bested. That ship, a Daedalus mkVIII, didn’t end up bringing the cup home for MISC but it forever associated the company with star racing, and paved the way for Trevor Yuman’s eventual victory in the now-iconic Razor.

Five decades later, MISC is still pushing the boundaries of innovation. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of that record run on the New Horizon, MISC reflects on its legacy and looks to the future of speed, both on and off the track, with the release of these limited-edition Razor chassis.

 

The New Horizon run? That was way before To-Ko shook things up with the integration of Xi’an tech, but those late model Daedalus could almost be considered proto-Razors. They introduced a lot of the features and innovations that we’d go on to perfect in the modern models, including an early version of the Proteus system. It was, frankly, way ahead of its time. Nowadays even Origin ships have adaptive intakes, but fifty years ago that was seriously radical stuff. So, with the anniversary of New Horizon andMISCs historic run looming, we figured we should see how far we could really push the Razor frame.

The Razor EX is made for those looking to maintain high speeds and low profiles. Outfitted with cutting-edge signature-reducing materials, the EX gives you the jump on the competition, keeps you off their radar, and keeps them on their toes.

With the LX, MISC engineers pushed the chassis to its limits, resulting in a supercharged ship capable of a mind-bending top speed and unparalleled acceleration. The overclocked engine will leave your competition sucking fumes right out of the gate.

Available to the public for a limited time, these ships allow any Citizen to harness MISC’s high speed thrills, taking the spirit of Murray Cup racing off the track and into their own backyard.

 

As a kid I always wanted to race in the Murray Cup. Growing up on Kampos, I was immersed in the culture of star racing from a very early age, and by the time I was a teenager I was obsessed. I idolized the greats, obviously – my room was plastered with posters of legends like Red Bakshi and Cane Martin, and in my dreams, I felt the thrill of unadulterated speed and the rush of the adoring masses cheering me on to victory, and the cup. But that’s all they were. Dreams. I grew up, took down my racing posters, got a job at a tech corp and did the normal adult thing. I was good at it, and I was relatively happy, but deep down inside, I still longed for the chase. Now, at 50 years young, even though a career in racing is a distant might-have-been, thanks to the MISCRazor LX, I’ve finally got my speed fix. Flying at full throttle, I’m right back there in those childhood dreams, chasing glory with the Murray Cup legends of days gone by.

 

- ROB CHRISSERT, Razor owner

Some may ask, why would I need so much speed, power, and exotic tech in my hangar? Here at MISC we ask, why not? You never know where adventure’s winds may blow, and with these unrivaled machines, you’ll be ready to take on whatever new challenges and opportunities come your way.

Life is short, live courageously with MISC and join us in celebrating 50 amazing years of innovation, adventure, and speed. Get in your Razor and start flying today.

A small number will be made available under the Warbond program, featuring unique serial numbers, to commemorate MISC’s legacy of innovation.

BTW ... wern't Origin M50 and 350 presented as some kind of ultimate racers?

Well, now they seem to have become the penultimate ones

CIG strikes back ... nasty ones!;)

 

Actually I am fine with this - it shows an evolution (as years go by) with different manufacturers building new ships to compete.   I would bet that the 350 is more maneuverable than the Razor LX which will give it more advantages in some races even if it no longer has the top speed.   Likewise the M50 will be more maneuverable than the 350 and Razor.... and the Khartu-Al will be more maneuverable than all of them.   Top speed isn't everything ;)

I don't understand the purpose of the Razor EX: A zero-cargo, single-seat speedster with 2 x S2 Scatterguns and 2 x S1 missiles.

Quote

Outfitted with signature-reducing materials, the Razor EX was specially designed for the UEE Advocacy for use in surveillance and extraction applications – perfect for pilots looking to keep a low profile and make a hasty getaway.

I understand surveillance, but "extraction"? Who would you be extracting in a single-seat ship? Yourself?

I assume by surveillance that the Razor EX is intended to sneak up close to its query and keep track of it visually or with passive sensors, because there's no mention of special sensors. The "REX" is intended to tail its target and presumably communicate its location to the real hunters, who will swoop in and engage the prey. So the REX is the stealth-scout for a team of bounty hunters. Or it's the lookout for a band of pirates.

Regardless, neither role appeals to me. The REX seems extremely niche. It's no wonder that CIG only released a small batch of warbonds with badged numbers, which are now sold out. I'm certain that CIG will release another batch sometime this weekend, and will continue to release batches of them until they don't sell out. The REX warbond will definitely be exploited on the grey market for profit.

      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.
