Aegis Reclaimer

Recommended Posts

We now have the Reclaimer and she’s glorious. Looking forward to seeing her fully operational with the Claw, remote turrets, salvage processing and drones. The cargo lift could have been a bit bigger, I managed to get the Cyclone on it but only barely (couldn’t get it into the ship though, it fell through the lift as it went up). 

Also still hoping we get some kind of EVA vehicle... 

your thoughts?

We still haven't seen any kind of Aegis speederbike or rover yet. I could imagine CIG making both an unarmed industrial version with a cargo pallet and an armed combat version. Same with the rover. :)

I hope some of the hangar machines and props we’ve seen lately will be functional machines we can actually use in hangars or large cargo holds. I reckon a forklift will be usefull. I remember in the cargo article they released a few years ago they proposed a anti-grav system to move boxes around... I wonder what became of that.

on the Reclaimer itself.. i only occasionally take it out for a cruise, just to practice landing and making my way around, and just to enjoy the beautiful ship. The elevator(s) are still horribly broken, with the the cargo lift still not reaching the surface and breaking loose on occasion and floating away. The front elevator only goes up. As salvage mechanics aren’t in, the spinning blades are missing and the thruster fire effects don’t animate with the thrusters.

I really dig how the VTOL thrusters pivot and flex, providing a solid landingsystem on uneven terrain. I do think it (and pretty much all ships) needs some kind of landing UI that shows the terrain below the ship. Especially landing larger ships is a pain in the rear.

some minor things Id like to see is some extra lights in the crew and captain’s quarters, they’re very dark. I know it’s inspired by Alien but dang, I’d bump into everything 😉. Also, I’d like it if the crew/captain’s quarter doors weren’t proximity triggered. 

All in all what we got is a beautiful but unfinished ship. I hope, when salvage comes in 3.3, they’ll fix some of the issues.

      Rumor is it is a salvage ship. It supposedly harvests human and ship remains!
       
      If you click the picture it will bring up a larger version. If you check out the "humans" you'll notice they are Vanduul, with their weird little legs!
