Ship Loaner Matrix - CIG

Recommended Posts

The Ship loaner matrix summed up:

What ship will CIG loan you until your ship is complete or hangar/flight ready.

Greetings Citizens,

We will be updating the Ship Loaner matrix this week in preparation for the upcoming Banu Defender sale. A couple notes on how "ship loaners" work.

  1. The concept of "ship loaners" was introduced to allow players who owned a game package and a single ship to play the game when that ship was unavailable.
  2. The loaners for each ship are not intended to be a 1:1 "best case substitute" for the ship that isn't flight ready. Many choices are made simply for the people with only one ship to have the most rounded gameplay experience available at this time, hence the preponderance of Constellations and Hornets, as those are our "signature" ships.
  3. The SIZE column is a general estimation of it's comparative size, role and capabilities. It is an imperfect attempt to group the tremendous diversity of ships into easily identifiable groups. It is not a literal account of how many seats are in a ship, or a statement about the min/max amount of people it takes to operate the ship.
  4. Due to the current restrictions in Arena Commander, certain ships have a secondary loaner to allow them to play in all game modes i.e. the Freelancer MAX gets a Freelancer for PU and a Hornet for AC.
  5. The most notable changes to this list from previous iterations is the addition of Starfarer and Starfarer Gemini for our largest ships. There are several, smaller alterations as well.

This has been your semi-irregular update of the Ship Loaner Matrix.

H'uh.. I was wondering why I had access to a Hornet.
Looks like, if I apply the CCU to my Saber, I'd get a Starfarer to mess around with as I wait for my Reclaimer to roll off AEGIS' assembly line. But then, I wouldn't have a saber. which is still pretty nice.

      and some highlights:
      Refutation of CryTek's Claims
      Claim: CIG was only given permission to make "the game" with CryEngine, selling SQ42 standalone is in violation of this.
      Defense: The GLA defines "the game" as both "'Space Citizen' and its related space fighter game 'Squadron 42'", with a passage allowing for name changes (Space Citizen > Star Citizen).
      Additionally, this term does not apply to any games made without CryEngine, and CryEngine is no longer used.
      Claim: CIG violated the GLA by switching from CryEngine to Lumberyard, they are only allowed to "exclusively" use CryEngine.
      Defense: The GLA says they are given "exclusive rights to use CryEngine" and the right "to exclusively embed CryEngine in the game". The well-established meaning of this wording is that the right is given only to them (and those subcontracted within the terms), not that they are only allowed to use CryEngine.
      Claim: CIG is no longer displaying CryTek copyright notices in game, in violation of the GLA.
      Defense: This obligation only applies if CIG is using CryEngine, which they are not.
      Claim: Ortwin was employed by CryTek prior to becoming CIG's attorney and co-founder so he had a conflict of interest when negotiating the contract.
      Defense: Ortwin received a signed waiver from CryTek dismissing any conflict of interest.
      Claim: Confidential source code was shown on Bugsmashers and disclosed to FaceWare in violation of the GLA.
      Defense: No defense provided, though FaceWare was after the switch to Lumberyard.
      Claim: CIG was required to provide any bugfixes they developed for CryEngine up until launch.
      Defense: No defense provided.
      Additional Statements
      The GLA prohibits either party from seeking any damages from one another "except for intentional acts or omissions or gross negligent acts".
      CIG, not RSI, is the signatory of the GLA, so CryTek committed a legal blunder by pursuing RSI rather than CIG in a number of claims.
      CIG seeks to have the entire complaint dismissed with prejudice (barring any further related action) on the grounds that none of the complaints are sufficient.

      If you want to have a ship that is included in a package of Optane drive, I'm willing to buy the optane. I'm in Canada.

      CIG cancelled due to technical difficulties. will show tomorrow, 22 Dec.
      I cannot defend them in public over this after they've had a literal freaking year to get their shit together.

      Apparently it seems that Crytek wants a piece of the cake after the success CIG brought with using the founding elements of CryEngine. They now are suing for copyright infringement. I feel like this is a last dick move to try and save themselves before they finally go under.

      While Gamescon and Citizencon have impressive presentations....... the big sale (where almost every ship goes on sale - though sometimes limited ships do not - but every year they seem to release a small allotment of Idris P and Javalin ships).
      Thought this also deserved its own thread and maybe post on what ships you hope to get to fill out your pledge?

      This image below looks like a new Anvil Ship??

      *** Note it is called "Anniversary Special" this year instead of "Anniversary Sale"...... I guess they are trying out a new marketing pitch...
