Star Citizen Anniversary Special

Recommended Posts

I am intrigued to find out what this ship is. 

I don't really have any plans to "purchase" another ship, but if a Hull C or D rolls around with a nice price, I may forfeit.  However, I do enjoy their videos for this annual period, and last year's approach was a good one.  This year's theme switching over to a new marketing setup has me interested in how they approach the week.

just to point out, the fan runs thru the chassie top and bottom. Also, the cockpit looks like it's one seater. From the wing size if it is a vanguard size the wings would be huge. doesn't have a bed on it. It is as simple as the picture is. 

Also, they do have two ships on concept sale at the same time around this time of the year.

Bigger ships like the Idris and Javelin were on sale for the Christmas sale. Anyway 3000 for a single unarmed ship, too steep.

It's $2.5k isn't it?

Warbond cash was $2500, while using credit was $3000 during the last anniversary sale.

Link? They were available in the Anniversary sale, but not for Christmas if memory serves.

Since Anvil Aerospace is kicking off the Anniversary Special, that basically confirms the mystery ship is an Anvil ship. Not that was a point of contention, because it's obviously an Anvil ship.

Good theory crafting with this one. ...

Another great video by theNoobifier. It makes sense if the mystery ship is a light fighter, because Anvil doesn't have a light fighter in its line-up. However, it's not what I really want, especially if he's right that, being an Anvil fighter, it'll be heavier, tougher, slower, and less agile than the existing light fighters. That doesn't make much sense for the light fighter role. Wouldn't that mean it would be weaker versus other light fighters, because it's slower and less maneuverable. But it would be stronger versus medium fighters and larger ships because it's more agile than them and is more durable than other light fighters. If my speculation is accurate, those characteristics are not compelling reasons to melt or CCU my Gladius, Sabre, or Xi'An Scout. And I definitely don't intend to buy another light fighter.

That's why I'm hoping that I'm right about the mystery ship being larger than a starfighter, and fulfills a different role than combat.

theNoobifier also mentioned a theory that I had earlier, regarding the mystery ship's large wings, could mean that it's intended for atmospheric flight and combat. That would make it a little different, but also incredibly restrictive if it can't fly in space at all. I doubt CIG will go to that extreme, but I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't give it a jump drive, only a quantum drive, and a very small Q-fuel tank. But again, I don't need an "atmo-fighter". Even if it was $50 or less, I wouldn't buy it -- and most backers would buy it primarily for a LTI token.

If the mystery ship is an inexpensive starfighter, there's no way that it's the only new concept ship being released for the Anniversary Special. CIG has to have something else up their sleeve. And I hope it's not just another batch of overpriced "special edition" ships, like last year. I hope there's something new and exciting, even if it's modules or component packs for existing ships. Like all the modules for the Caterpillar.

Another possibility is a collection of planetary surface items that are suited for Alpha 3.0. Perhaps a deployable mining rig that can be carried aboard a transport, like a Freelancer, as an alternative to a Prospector. Or a Mule wheeled drone that is controllable by the Mobi-glas, which carries an assortment of tools for salvaging, and can also haul the salvaged items back to a ship. Or a deployable Sentry gun turret for guarding your ship when you land on planets. I can see CIG selling stuff like that.

But I'm hoping for something special.

I've thinking of CCUing a Hull-D up for Hull-E for a while now. I have more than 1 Hull-D and Hull-C atm. Also depending on the stats and pricing I might get one of those "new" anvil ships.

Gotta say I seem to get addicted this time last year when I was getting the Polaris combo pack at CitizenCon, exotic pack on the Anniversary and the Armada pack at Christmas.

I know how you're thinking about this. I have the Carrack, the 600i explorer, and the Terrapin in addition to the Endeavour (w/etc). You're just thinking the Cargo end of the jobs.

I either own or have buybacks for every ship that I want and has been released thus far, so I'm hoping for something new and exciting during the Anniversary Special. I hope CIG has more than just the Anvil mystery ship up their sleeve. Or the Lynx rover, as some have speculated. I want something cool. I wouldn't mind some "Special Edition" ships, like last year, except with worthwhile loadouts and not so overpriced. (WTF was with the $175 Hornet Wildfire!?! That's $65 more than the F7C!)

3 more days...

Hopefully we'll get a sneak peek Thursday night.

      Everyone knows (or should know) that RSI is currently Updating all the Hangars.  These updated hangars will be truly transformative compared to what we currently have = Hangar 1.0.  They are adding better graphics, PBR, room expansions, decorations, bling, and eventually the connection to the PU - with the Planet Side / Social Module. 
      I wanted to Create a Thread so people can keep up to date with all the Hangar 2.0 News (like we have Ship Threads).  Post anything you want on this thread regarding hangars, even sharing what you have currently for decoration, fish in your fish tank, vehicles, share images, photos, etc...  The idea with the thread is to show off your home and share new info from the Community and RSI about Hangar 2.0.  I'll try to keep this OP up-to-date with relevant Images and Video's that pertain to Hangars 2.0.
      We will be getting images, videos, Dev posts, etc... about the WIP that CIG is now starting to reveal on the Hangars. We can use this thread to collate all new WIP items about Hangars like these sister (archive) threads:
      Discount Hangar 2.0
      No New Hangar 2.0 Info Yet
      Business Hangar 2.0

      After asking who designed the 600i yesterday, this morning, I find a message in my Spectrum mailbox:
      The 600i design is my favorite ship design so far - even the interior is nice - and I ask who designed it - (by "Hobbit", I refer to Hobbes and "human designer" means as opposed to in-lore Origin designers)  Also, CIG so far has freely, sometimes proudly disclosed who the designer(s) of a ship are, so how is this an offensive question?
      This response is perplexing and annoying me.
      Has anyone had any success appealing mod actions on the SC forum?  I've talked to a few mods on CIG's forum in the Years past and most of them were real friendly and actually talk regularly with the community in threads. But this guy is either real dark or English isn't his first language? idk...
      : :
      Don't really care about the 48 hours, I just don't feel like even being on a forum, where asking a question gets you probated.
