Mobiglass is meant to be the main interface. You'll eventually use it to buy ships, their components, guns, armor and clothes for yourself and so on.

It's also the mission interface.

From the little I know about this game, it looks pretty damn cool. However I checked out the game's website to try to get more information about it, but don't fucking understand it... all I see are price tags from $20 up to like $25,000.

I know that this is basically just a bunch of whales and pent up demand for a good space game throwing money at the devs due to the entertainment industry not wanting to fund something that isn't a tried and true rehash that's already done to death... but uhhh, wtf is going on? Is this just going to be some sort of high-tier-shit Korean P2W game or something?

If I wanted to just play a FPS+space flight game, go exploring with friends in a comfy space ship and shoot up shit along the way, what would I have to do?.. I wouldn't have to spend like $500 or do some soulless MMO grind would I? And what's with the crew sizes for ships, can you like get NPCs to stand in for when the players aren't doing stuff (so you could say, operate a 5 crew ship with 2-4 people, or idle in the ship while the NPC's fly it from point A to point B)?

Pic related looks like the coolest ship.

First of all, good taste, Carrack best ship.

It's suppossed to not be grindy, a "pay to not play" system, where people who don't have the time to play as much due to their job are not left behind, and they're supposed to have a greater disposable income. SUPPOSEDLY.
Best thing you can do is get the cheapest package and nothing more

>Retaliator with 3 months

You didn't lose much. Just wait to get an LTI ship and upgrade to the Retaliator.
>>
>>128328179

I thought his post was constructive, you fur fucking faggot bitch nigga.
>>
I've not bought the game, the only thing I have is an account on the site (to reserve my name when I do buy something) but I seen someone selling a Titan with LTI on Reddit and I'd like to buy it.
So how does buying someone elses ship work, and is it even possible if I don't already have a starter package?
>>
>>128339707
ships can be gifted to others, so you give someone your money, they gift the ship to you. You don't need to have any package to receive it afaik, but you need to own (bought or received) at least one game package with ship (not just ship standalone) to play the game.
>>
>>128340023
I see.
So could I buy a base Aurora package, melt or scrap or whatever the fuck the Aurora and just use my Avenger?
>>
>>128340149
if you melt it you won't have the game package anymore, so no
Either you have to get an avenger titan package or keep the poorora and add the titan separately

or just forget the LTI
>>
>>128340180
>Also, it looks like private servers are last on the priority list in case anyone was wondering.

Pretty much this... When was the last time an LTI game package was available?
>>
>>128335502
I'm watching it now and it's actually decent, no stupid facecam, no screams...
>>
>>128340607
you can upgrade the aurora package to replace the ship with titan, I think it'll cost you 35 or 40 bucks but not sure, don't own the aurora.

My advice would be to get an aurora LN or mustang package, as you gonna need it anyway, and then play the game and decide if you feel like sinking more money or not.
>>
Also what's the deal with Aurora LN package, it does cost the same as the regular MR one?
But it lacks the "Includes everything you need to play Arena Commander today.", does it mean anything really?
>>
>>128340549
With the appropriate mods it could become some Star Wars Universe.
>>
>>128332437

>LOD continents are similar to PS2

Except PS2 continents actually look pretty breath taking
>>
>>128341278
That's from when they had alpha access tokens, they ditched that stupid idea so they're now the same.
>>
>>128341380
but isn't the LN a clearly superior ship? Weird they'd cost the same
>>
>>128341446
Wait, do they? I thoight there were two MR packages which offered the same, not an LN and MR, can you link them?
>>
>>128341663
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/Packages/Aurora-LN
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/Packages/Aurora-MR-AC-Starter
both listed for $55.35, at least for me
>>
>>128341910
The MR was probably originally Star Citizen + SQ42 + Arena Commander Pass whereas the LN was only Star Citizen + SQ42

Since they've removed alpha passes they look the same now.
>>
>>128342123
welp, if there is anyone luring around planning to get the game then go for the LN package before they find out and fix this mess.
>>
>>128341910
Fuck, that's weird.
Get the LN, objectively better.

About how effective (in terms of a percent) do you think the Caterpillar will be able to salvage and scavenge as well as the Reclaimer?

I want to estimate that it will be about 35% to 45% as good as the Reclaimer, only restricted by less articulate tractor beams and smaller size of cargo.
>>
>>128364147
12.33%
>>
>>128364303
Recurring
>>
>>128364147
It's supposed to be very modular, so we'll see.
>>
>>128364303

Is this a low estimation because of cargo or scale of scavenging for a Caterpillar?
>>
>>128330424

Is it worth upgrading from Aurora LN to Titan Module?

>>128369402
My LN package has LTI so I should upgrade to something more valuable anyway right?
The only thing thay concerns me is the cargo capacity on the Titan Module and how its firepower are compared to Aurora LN.
>>
>>128369837
The Titan undoubtly will have more cargo space than the LN, and the firepower you can compare (Stalker) in the ship matrix page (Avenger wins)
>>
>>128370575
So the LN are crap on all points compared to the Titan Module?

>>128371047
the new damage modeling has to be applied manually to each ship. it's currently on the gladius and gladiator, and will no doubt be on the saber and anything else released from now forward.

does the freelancer have it? I have no idea.
>>
>>128371212
>it's currently on the gladius and gladiator

As in the game right now? Or just internally done?
>>
>>128370806
Yes, it is a straight up upgrade unless the Avenger 's gun gets a sudden massive nerf at some point, or it turns out external cargo boxes are far better than having a traditional cargo hold. The only thing the LN has in it's favor is that it's a slightly smaller target
>>
>>128370806
It's lighter, I guess.
>>
>>128371389
I see the Titan Module aint flight ready yet so what ship will I have in the meantime when the Aurora is upgraded to Titan?
A normal Avenger Stalker?
>>
>>128371346

I don't know shit about this game, is that something that will be flyable by players?

On a private server, maybe
>>
>>128386468
there's only one of them and it probably won't even appear outside of the single player story.
>>
>>128386468
It's supposed to be the UEE flagship in the single player campaign. Probably won't be flyable in anything but private servers as >>128387015 said. Closest will be the Bengal which is quite a bit smaller and won't be able to be 'owned' by people as such but can definitely be flown.
>>
>>128386468
Seems to be a Squadron 42 ship only. It's a flaghip UEE builds in response to Vaduul attack and subsequent war. I don't think it will even appear in the first part of single player campaign , except maybe in the very end as the end/post credit sequel hook.

There is no way you would build a ship that large in atmosphere. The thrust required to get it out of the gravity well would be phenomenal, and it's not it's got any lift to help it like the rest of the space planes.
Then again, I can't remember if this was just a fan mock up and I'm getting the 'Tism shakes over nothing.

Thanksgiving-ish, during the Anniversary sale, when clever and sly Chris Roberts sold a concept snub-fighter ship: P-72 Archimedes.

This 30 dollar ship had LTI because it was technically a concept sale, and then everyone and their mother was buying the P-72 Archimedes to CCU (cross-chassis upgrade) into any other ship that had a higher value than 30 dollars, which is all but 2 ships in the game.

Mind you, during this time at the anniversary sale, all the other concept ships you can't normally get, were up for sale again. Chances are, you might not be able to get LTI again unless there's somehow another concept sale with LTI and low-cost (like 30$). Chances are, that won't happen again.

If it does though, it may be next Thanksgiving when Chris Roberts opens up the LTI gate.

>>128413974
He and the goons like beer are still sperging about SC. There are barely negative press articles on SC anymore and despite the delays and all Squadron 42 and the PU made it on several "anticipated games 2016" lists. Also, one of the bigger Youtuber in germany, piet smiet with 2 million followers, introduced the game to his viewers. Some additional features were added for the long run. Despite what smart claims while having no evidence to back up we already saw a quick demo on planetary landing and seamless transition from planet to space.

Short: game is still on track, devs push out new builds extremely often (causing people with slow Internet to mourn the 30GB patches), it still takes money in and won't run out at any point in the near future.

Smart himself went from speculating and sperging about SC based on an insider to speculating and sperging about SC without an insider and now focuses instead on Sandi and the community. While his own "game" is still shit.

>>128416435

To be honest, I fucking suck at Arena commander, and I don't enjoy it because of that (I did well in Vanduul Swarm when I had a Beta, which made me feel like upgrading, but moving to the new weapons system disoriented me, and I realized how much I relied on no-ammo gimballed lasers).

However, I'm very interested in the PU, so I'd actually be motivated to put the time into AC to git gud if I didn't have doubts about the game coming out as promised. And if Squadron 42 and the PU come out as promised despite my doubts, I'll have motivation then and there to git gud, even if I'll just be a scrub at the beginning.

Yeah, but try telling the connie owners that. The hornet fags are annoying, but at least all they want is for their ship to be the best at its primary role. The Connie fags want their ship to be able to dogfight while carrying more cargo than freelancer MAX, and be able to win a fight against three super hornets at once.

Just upgraded my Aurora LN to a Avenger Titan.

Should I replace all the weapons except for the missiles?

>>128470819
Don't buy guns. They will change drastically before the game releases.
>>
>>128471442
Assume he's talking about REC.

>>128469362
Well, they're going to balance the shit out of the Constellation until it can take a beating and dish out enough damage to force a stalemate between 3 Hornets.

Its disadvantage will mostly be heavy fighers and things like Gladiators, which it will have a hard time avoiding the hits of.

Right now a Gladius can beat it to shit without much trouble because everything is fucked, thats what Connie owners are complaining about.
>>
>>128470819
>Avenger
>replace all the weapons
Boy are you in for a surprise.

You can't change the nose gimbal.
>>
>>128470819
Rent. Do not buy ever. Keep the nose gun, and put S2 Tarantulas on the wings. You may or may not want to replace the missiles depending on how much REC you have to waste. All missiles are terrible right now, and can't target for shit. But on the rare chance you do actually get one to make contact with a ship, a tempest II will do a lot more damage than the stock S1 missiles.
>>
>>128473986
on the plus side, it's probably the best S3 gun in the game right now.
>>
>>128467454

wat
>>
>>128473986
I know you can't do it now, but is there a source stating you won't be able to change out the gimbal in the future?
>>
Damn I black out extremely easy in the Avenger even with G-Safe ON. Im my Aurora LN I didnt black out ever no matter what I tried.
>>
>>128481063
yeah, the Avenger's interior is buggy and causing increased blackouts. They're trying to fix it on the PTU
>>
>>128480809
Its only worth talking about the current state of the game / equipment / weapons.

We don't have the luxrury of assuming anything. Not even stats across a single patch.
>>
>>128480809
>is there a source stating you won't be able to change out the gimbal in the future?
No.

But there is no indication that they moved any closer to allow changing the nose gun either, even though the ship just had a new variant released.

So on one end of the fight-y freighters scale we have the Cutlass that has a 210m/s SCM speed and holds 33 units and on the other end we have the Constellation Taurus which does a SCM of155m/s and holds 300+ units

And in the middle there's the Freelancer which has a SCM speed of 170m/s but holds only 55 units.

Yeah, I'm not seeing a situation I'd ever want to use a Freelancer with those stats. The lancer either needs to be faster or hold more cargo to scale better with the other ships.

/scg/ i have a question related to hardpoints/ship weapons, i am relatively new to the game

I own a gladius and have opted to switch out the pivoting S1 lasers on the wings for fixed S2 lasers

I can put a S2 laser on the nose gun but it wont attach without the scorpion mount which makes the laser a pivoting weapon no matter what.

How can i set up the nose mount to be fixed so that the shots line up exactly with the fixed wing mounts, hence i can hold both LMB/RMB on the same target at once

Yeah, no.

Germany has had real, actual black people (i.e., not islamic half-arabs from north of the Sahara) since the 1920s.

They were the African soldiers who fought for Germany in WW1, and chose not to stay in the now British or South African-occupied territories.

You can keep your 'Syrians', I wouldn't mind a descendant of the Kaiser's soldiers in my family, no matter if he is of African descent or not.

Why the fuck do we still have different speed limits for different ships including your ship going faster if it is badly damaged. They should just give everything the same top speed and let people figure out themselves how fast they really want to fly their ship depending in their acceleration and maneuverability. Weight, damage, engine power and even the fucking loudout would still come into consideration with that system and you could still balance everything around the acceleration alone instead of having those retarded different top speeds on every ship like we have now.
>>
>>128542478
Top speed is going to be a result of your accleration.

You currently have higher top speed when damaged because you've lost mass but not thrust. You can accelerate faster.

Yeah but when would you lose thrust except when you completely lose your engine? The system is just dumb, I mean I know that they use your acceleration to calculate your top speed but it just makes no fucking sense, I would be okay if it was a safety measure you could disable but this is trash
>>
>>128543252
>Yeah but when would you lose thrust except when you completely lose your engine?

When your powerplant gets hit

When you cooling system gets hit

And you gain/lose mass depending on your cargo/fuel/ore/salvage/weapon/missile load.

God.... Damnit... Why the hell didn't I scrounge enough money together to get this before getting the Sabre recently? This seems like the ideal ship for me in every way. I don't mind not having stealth, but being really fast in an alien ship with high shields is the Protoss life for me.

Have they said anything about what happens when you log out?

I'm wondering if we're going to have to keep turning the ship around and spending a few minutes picking up our buddy that fell out of the ship because his network dropped.

Would be cool if using a bed on a ship would let you log off and then log back in on the ship still.

>>128582535

In the past a dropped player simply gets an AI to take over if in a fight or some hostile condition/ proximity to something. The AI will book it to the nearest station/landing zone/safe zone. You can only poof out of existence when not in a hostile situation and only when your ship has a bed, so there won't be any of Elite's bullshit. Anything without a bed needs a landing zone I think.

Not sure what happens when the guy who owns the ship logs off with buddies on board in a safe zone. I don't think the ship poofs and you have 5 people flung into space. I think someone said you just fast travel to the last landing zone or station.

You're the one making retarded claims about shit you don't know anything about. CIG has designed the game to keep every ship as its own instance with seamless transition between them. That is a fact.

lol you're so infatuated with developer statements yet you don't know shit about servers. the 'instancing' they refer to could mean literally nothing. True instancing as it lies now is the lobby system where all are separate servers.
That way you only tax the one server, by separating spaces into instances you preserve bandwidth at the cost of more servers which is a shitty system that has existed since forever.
To string them together is far from 'seamless' its an ugly process that throws the user into limbo while transitioning.
congrats on being the target audience though.
What star ciitzen needs is a breakthrough in technology on both a hardware and software level, and I'm sorry for being skeptical but hey. It's really unlikely.

You're really comparing wow to star citizen?
Are you that dense?
Wow transmits an XYZ and input output strings, a few kilobytes of data.
But with physics you have to check and recheck that all clients are reacting the same way because hiccups in the system can create differences on each clients. Servers are fucking complicated dude.
I'm not saying that they shouldn't try, of course they should, why wouldn't I want a breakthrough in technology that fixes current MP games shitty issues?

>the 'instancing' they refer to could mean literally nothing

Making it excessively clear you don't know anything about this game, have no idea how the systems they've set up for this game work, and are talking purely out of your ass.

>and I'm sorry for being skeptical but hey

What you are doing is not being skeptical. What you are doing is spreading misinformation based on your own personal opinions. Congratulations you're on par with every other faggot that has been screaming that the game is vaporware for two years. In fact, I bet you're one of them and you're just moving on the next ignorant "criticism" you managed to come up with after the vaporware accusations were destroyed by 2.0.

Congratulations, your post is made of a greentext meme and a bunch of red herrings.

I'm assuming they still haven't fixed the weight bug so the Freelancer has 1/10 the mass it's supposed to have and other ships are still fucked.

Most people seem to had been expecting 200+ something speed but with shitty turning capabilities. Basically the "boom and zoom" fighter the Avenger was suppose to be. There's going to be some butt hurt vanguard owners tonight.
From Reddit:
180 SCM
235 AB
1565 Cruise

Doesn't that put it around the same speed and maneuverability as a Gladiator? That's pretty damn good honestly.

Then tell me how they're even remotely different from what I just said.
You fags are ridiculous.
>>
>>128592615
Yes, but remember this is the anti-fighter Interceptor variant. The torpedo variant will be even slower.
>>
>>128592475
The cruise is insane. The Retaliator is sub 500 now. You can still use weapons in cruise. This sounds perfect for the torpedo variant. I think I'll ccu my Retaliator to it.
>>
>>128593308
Speed will probably will get some adjustments. SCM is probably close tp where they want it but I don't think it's afterburner speed will stay that low.

thats not instancing dude thats just what multiplayer games do.
your rebuttal should be something like: it's innovative new tech that uses: x x and x.
You're either pretending to be retarded, or actually retarded.

>>128596032
Adding to that, I have played games where they had 'instances' but I've always associated that with a loading screen break while transitioning between areas. How is CIG doing this without that transition?
>>
>>128596032
Players will be separated onto different servers essentially even when in the same area and not be able to interact directly with each other. I.E. 200 players in one area may be split into 4 instances (hypothetically) and only be able to interact with those 50 players in their instance.

>>128596746
Nobody outside of CIG knows right now
>>
>>128596032
>what the fuck is 'instancing'
separating players into physics and render grids for processing's sake, mostly invisible to the player
>and why are people skeptical about it?
because they don't understand how it works.

IT'S SHIT
>>
>>128596032
Instancing is when players are divided into separate servers even though they are in the same location in the game.

For example if a game has location X, several parties could be at location X at the same time, yet in different instances so they never interact with each other.

People want lots of interaction and will be upset if the number of players in an instance is too few.

From what I understand it was a nightmare to move around in the world.

There was but CiG disabled it in one of the RC patches to the PTU because it was god awful. You can probably find Youtube videos of it.

>>128597438
It's the full size of the game because CIG doesn't know how to create a patching system still

Yes, for a little while. It was fucking terrible. I hope they don't try to add it back until mag boots or the ability to grab things are also out in.
