So I posted an idea for a new defense corvette class on starcitizen forum as I would love to see a more dedicated support ship military style, in the size of a polaris or carrack.
Polaris = Offensive military corvette
Carrack = Exploration capital ship
Guardian = Defensive/Support military corvette (new idea)
please give feedback, here is the link my fellow imps
If im in the wrong here im sorry so pleas bump me to the right place. So Yeah, I fix and mod all type of consoles. From atari 2600 to ps4 and xbone.
As i have gotten my computer up to par for the exploration of the stars, Only need to get a bit better video card but anywho. I have a shitty monitor. It works but i want a better one, As i have said i repair and mod stuff. I from this hobby/side job aquire different stuff. I got a Asus PB287q Monitor not long ago. Its a freaking 4K monitor. It is outright sexy. I will not throw it away, I do though have little to no experiene with monitors though. So im asking my fellow space travlers. Are there any other people here that know about fixing monitors? Or can refer me to some one or some place? As SC is the one PC game im geard to play this is my one forum where people have computers as theyr main interest hehe. Hope someone can help or get me off somewhere on the right track.
The problem: The monitor turns on, Thats the frustrating part. Not only it turnes on, But the sound from the hdmi is also working. AND the back light is glowing... BUT no picture, not even the meny pops up. It seems like the smallest thing but as the monitor is a bit expensive, befor i jump on it i want to know what to do or at least a track to go
Again Imperium is who we are and this is who we always will be. Togeather we stand and togeather we will hardly fall... So anyone know what to do?
New information = revising my plans and thinking yet again.
With the design doc released on the repair mechanic, the Orion has now become a 'must have' for all deep-space fleet operations. Repairing will cost raw/refined materials, which will be limited. Any large, deep-space fleet operation will need a refueling ship, a repair ship, and materials providing ships such as the Orion and Crucible (hmm, can maybe salvage subcomponents, etc.?) Complete autonomy is key when going the distance. So far, we have everything taken care of except manufacturing ballistic ammunition and missiles, which we should have plenty of cargo space to accomodate with. That or use energy weapons or keep some in storage for fighters in the event ammo is depleted.
The Orion serves two functions, it can collect resources wherever it goes, and it can refine them for distribution to repair vessels should the need arise (or stock up on rare/valuable materials if they aren't , running the Orion or Refueler may be boring at times, but it has its perks).
Unless otherwise stated, the duty of the Orion to the fleet would be to acquire, refine, and provide all necessary materials for repair in exchange for fuel, protection, and support for itself. Then, after the operation is over, the crew of the Orion would divy up their bounty of cargo. This is assuming that the Orion is playing a support role in some large org operation involving carriers, explorers, fighters, etc., the whole line up. If the Orion (or multiple) is the one being supported, focus of support/the fleet, with the intent of entering dangerous space for the sole purpose of harvesting valuable materials (a mining operation with limited support other than military), that's a different story.
Heck, if an op is ending, the Orion(s) could mine up and refine resources until everyone's cargo holds are full Fill up that space the ammo and missiles were occupying once the battle is over.
I'm guessing the Orion can be crewed by 3 or 4 people. Duties include: Pilot, scanner, laser op, tractor op, refinery op. Some of these can likely be combined into one station. For example, the pilot can probably handle scanning, and it would make sense to pair these anyway with the pilot knowing where he is going and what he wants to check out, then relaying that information to the next man. Also, the laser op may be able to run the tractors, again it would make sense to pair these with the cutter knowing what's being cut and what/where to expect fragments.
No need for the guns while mining, switch to guns and stop mining if the situation calls for it.
Just some thoughts while getting more excited than I already am.
@Chimaera I smell a medal in here somewhere, I just can't put my finger on what or how to qualify it...
I dunno... When we get to see more of the game, and we can make some concrete Academy courses for certs + have practicals and live demonstrations, that may be easier to spot.
Trying to explain the things in my head... nobody wants a laser op that destabilizes rocks or a tractor op that bangs up your hull/misses rocks or a repairman that wastes resources constantly.
Having the medals and certs will definitely help to identify the most capable pilots/players for their chosen tasks, and hopefully tie in to their pay grade too! (at least in some indirect, non-arbitrated way)
Oh, one more thought I'm try to squeeze out of my head in not such an elegant fashion:
Waste less = saving money/time/resources = everyone gets paid more and faster is the reasoning behind wanting certs/recognition for competency (or extreme competency) and paying those players more. They've earned it, and they are earning it for their team too, so give them their due.
Also, paying people more for being better at a task will only serve to incentivize broad-spectrum improvement in all of our members.
