    Pyro coming in 2023? Where's my Liberator?

    If we are talking about The Expanse, I want the Rocinate and a squad of Martian Marine Force Recon troopers.

    Pyro coming in 2023? Where's my Liberator?

    CIG has been talking Pyro as coming soon for a while now. The only way the Starfarer works in this role is if a properly manned Starfarer is escorting fighters. So the "PVPers" will need to "git gud" and "hire escorts."

    Pyro coming in 2023? Where's my Liberator?

    Oh, trust me, I get that. But the Liberator was pitched as being essential for Pyro. It calls into question if they are serious about releasing Pyro this year.

    Pyro coming in 2023? Where's my Liberator?

    Pyro was supposed to be barren, mined out, environmentally very hazardous, and basically empty. They've apparently retconned some of that, because, I guess, they've needed to show something. But it is still supposed to have large distances between fuel stops and not supposed to be a pleasant...

    Persistent object streaming

    That is not what they told us it was about. It was about inventory, and about persistence, and would even allow for multiple systems and unlimited people per server. It was the "Jesus patch" that would allow everything to work and let additional systems to be added 3 years ago with patch 4.0.

    Persistent object streaming

    Oh, I'm not saying have only one database, though in this case, it appears to me, that the personal inventory and inventory of what gets strewn around and left behind, seems like the same thing. I'm saying they made a big deal of this being the job of SSOCS and how SSOCS was separated from the...

    Persistent object streaming

    SSOCS. was supposed to move the database off the servers. That way it wasn't server dependent, like your inventory, and was supposed to be the key to full persistence. As soon as everything was moved to SSOCS we were there. (And almost everything was supposed to be there more than a year ago...

    Can I get to Ruin Station in my.... *enter ship here* ??

    They actually extended the range of the small ships in Stanton. It originally took multiple stops to get across Stanton.

    Can I get to Ruin Station in my.... *enter ship here* ??

    I've been seriously considering range for some time. For the longest time we (my wife and I) limited ourselves to one small ship each. There is a reason I have a Liberator for our fleet. With the Liberator we currently have 5 small ships (and 2 Dragonflies) and one of the small ships is...

    Can I get to Ruin Station in my.... *enter ship here* ??

    The Vanguard is supposed to be multi-system capable. The Retaliator is implied to be. The Quantum fuel capacity clearly needs work and some differentiation. I do expect the small ships to lose some range but not much. The ships with medium drives to gain range and ships with large drives to...

    Well you have to move those stealth ships somehow.

    Best Stealth Transport

    The Sentinel is supposed to have "EMP Charges," whatever that means.

    Best Stealth Transport

    The hell with stealth. Use your MSR as a "go fast boat" and be gone before anyone knows you were there. The freighters aren't meant to fight, mostly, and they are too big to hide. Keep your speed up and do some distance.

    SQ42 upgrade available?

    I had one but melted it when I got my Scoundrel pack. Sorry, buy back not allowed, so I can't get it to you.

    Best Stealth Transport

    That is the job of the wild weasel. Be seen so the Iron Hand component can hit the sensors of the air defense systems in the area. (Which is why a stealth Sentinel makes no sense to me.)

    Best Stealth Transport

    Stealth isn't currently a thing in the PU. AFAIK the list includes Sabre, Razorback EX, Eclipse, Prowler, Hornet Ghost, Sabre Raven, Vanguard Sentinel (still makes no sense to me) and the Talon/Shrike. Other ships can be made stealthy but aren't designated as "stealth."

    Gallant Burstfire mode

    The M4 cyclic is around 700 RPM, same as the M16. The G11 is designed to fire burst mode at around 2200 RPM but full auto was around 700 RPM. It's a neat concept, and one of several in the weapon, but there were definite drawbacks. There are lots of misconceptions about "Assault Rifles" out...

    Gallant Burstfire mode

    Granted this is a game viewed through Hollywood tinted glasses, not the real world. In the real world, full auto is for suppression fire. It is to put heads down. Having been a MOUT instructor, short bursts just aren't very good at that.

    Will Connies be getting further work?

    This. The Connie is an Explorer.

    Will Connies be getting further work?

    The Hab area already has weapon racks, and the old incarnation of the storage locker, plus an implied kitchen. Reorganizing that, plus bringing it to current standards, fills most of the useable space. The engineering area at the rear of the cargo hold, and the corridor to the Merlin, needs...
