That's just it; too many ships . . .again. Haha. I've been eyeballing the Polaris and Nautilus as well. I really like them both.
But it just seems really bulky having all these ships, and only ever using a couple. Even the MSR, which I fell in love with when it was concepted, I barely use. I may need to make time for it, haha.
Kind of in the same puddle of mud.. got a lot more in than what I use, and coming to the opinion that cutting the small ones in favor of a few really big ones makes quite a bit of sense.Same. My MSR gone melty melt. Be ruthless mine Owl!!!! xx
As a thought to ponder, many of the medium ships should become quite useful for the solo pilot once NPC crew are available. I DESPISE the idea that I'll be limited to single seaters and local gameplay if I'm out by myself. Which is often, as my play hours for SC are all over the map, and usually focused on some specific aspect of the game. Especially when I am bug hunting - doesn't make for good group play.
At time it feels to me like the push for force players together is reaching a pathological level.. even EvE Online, harsh as it is, doesn't force you into a particular role or ship, or even a group. You can chose the ship you want to fly (for better or worse lol) but it NEVER depends on another player enabling the choice.
If NPC crew do not become viable, then using bigger ships will become like the weekend raid, where you cajole a handful of friends into hanging out for a while in the hopes of a few minutes of fun using the ship for its intended purpose.
