    Caterpillar internal rework on the way?

    If the roadmap is accurate, the Retaliator has had a "gold standard pass" during q1 and q2 last year, with the room swapping (modules changing) being worked on at the same time. I'm guessing these will be implemented after Q1 next year, however, as there is an entry for the Aegis Retaliator...

    Alien week - Yes, there are warbond CCUs

    If you go to the CCUs section of "Your Items", there's an option\filter for "hangar" and "buyback" (headed "Place")... Select whichever you want, then scroll to the bottom of the table. I then used the numbers in the calculation: Hangar -> Hangar CCU pledge total \ (ships pledge total + Hangar...

    Alien week - Yes, there are warbond CCUs

    I had to use a calculator to find the %: With "CCU pledge total" being either hangar alone, or hangar + Buy-Back. I'm planning to slowly convert as many CCU's into "cash" rather than credit based as I can, so if I don't need them in future and they increase in value (vulture ones in 3.18, for...

    Alien week - Yes, there are warbond CCUs

    I left currently unavailable items off the suggestions, and stuck with what is available now, to avoid complicating things :) For example, if you bring the Vulcan in, it confuses things more than they already are: In the $195-$250 range you have (among many possible combinations)...

    Alien week - Yes, there are warbond CCUs

    I'd suggest that you ignore the vulture -> defender CCU, and grab a Constellation Taurus -> Defender CCU instead, leaving a gap betwen the Vulture and the Freelancer MIS (Constellation Taurus CCU you have) to fill in later. I'd also suggest an M2 -> Merchantman CCU, leaving a gap between the...

    Caterpillar internal rework on the way?

    I don't think it would have a huge impact on what could be transported, but it would simplify arranging cargo by mass to keep the ship evenly balanced for flight, which is something they are planning on implementing. If you look at the current boxes we can "create", we have a 1x1x1 and a 1x1x2...

    MULE! Looks like a handy vehicle for those bunkers

    I haven't tried combat yet (poor reflexes - among other reasons - means PvP is out of the question for me, and I've been reluctant to even give PvE a shot), so can't give any insight into their combat perfomance (flight or guns). The ones I have tried seem OK leaving atmo, but I've only really...

    MULE! Looks like a handy vehicle for those bunkers

    Surely CIG would never do anything to upset their customers... I'm currently undecided on which ship to use for ROC transport [1]: Nomad is cheap, but reversing onto tray and time between cockpit of ship and controls of ROC (3 doors plus ladder) is too long. Cutlass Black is not quite as cheap...

    MULE! Looks like a handy vehicle for those bunkers

    Maybe it's just my eyes - It looks to me like the "line" the mule is driving along with its wheel on the right is a corner where the ramp has a side forming, rather than remaining flat from that point.

    MULE! Looks like a handy vehicle for those bunkers

    I have a cutlass that I use as my current ROC mover, but I'm planning to replace this with a valkyrie soonish - It seems a better ship than my other option (Freelancer MAX) with quicker access to the ROC if you manage the jump correctly (jump at the right time and you miss the ladder\ladder...

    MULE! Looks like a handy vehicle for those bunkers

    That, the grey "band" above where the ramp closes, grey accents\panels behind the figure on the left, and some of the internal features were what made me think it was a cutlass, but the ramp is wrong, and if this altered ramp is part of a planned change to the ship, it looks like transporting a...

    MULE! Looks like a handy vehicle for those bunkers

    I've been trying to work out which ship is being loaded in this image for a while: My best guess (closest existing ship I could think of) is that it is a cutlass, but the ramp is wrong - At present the cutlass has a "flat" ramp, whereas this image has a ramp with "sides". If it is a reworked...

    Caterpillar internal rework on the way?

    With the upcoming cargo refactor, and work on making the mass of cargo affect ship flight models, it looks like a rework of the Caterpillar internals may be planned\in progress. Looking at a post by CIG staff on Spectrum...

    Invictus / DefenseCon - What did you pick up or change?

    If you melt something you only get the amount paid (cash or credits) returned as store credits, but I was wondering if the "re-buy" (buy back) price for a ship or pack increased if the cheaper "warbond" version was the original item: Mule\Cutlass pack is $120 Warbond, or $140 non-warbond: If the...

    Invictus / DefenseCon - What did you pick up or change?

    With packs such as the mule\cutlass black ones: If you buy the warbond version and later melt it, is the buyback price the warbond or non-warbond amount (I know insurance duration shouldn't change)? Also, does the buyback price on warbond ships go to the "full" price if you later melt them, or...

    Invictus / DefenseCon - What did you pick up or change?

    Well, I should know when concierge find out, but that involves me making the effort\remembering to check those RSI emails... Looks like I'll be grabbing a few more event CCU's once they all return to store - I really wish you could buy multiples of a CCU (as well as multiple of a CCU to same...

    Vulture at DefenseCon

    That's a good CCU to pick up... The ship should release by the end of the year, with most likely a $10-$15 price increase, improving the CCU's value for chains - Instead of saving $10 as you do now, it will be a $20-$25 saving once Vulture releases. I'm planning to grab a few more tomorrow (I...

    Invictus / DefenseCon - What did you pick up or change?

    Out of curiosity, how long after Invictus ends are the 3 new releases (legionnaire, Scorpius, Mule) likely to be in the store (normal or concierge)? I'd like to pick up some\pick up CCU's for them, but don't want to divert money that could be better used for invictus CCU's if those 3 ships will...

    Vulture at DefenseCon

    I had a look at the Vulture yesterday. While I knew it would have large "arms" at the front, for some reason they seemed much bigger that I was expecting.
