EDIT: Welp, nevermind. It went live earlier than I thought. And it did go up in price a stupid amount! I still have a Megapack in my cart, wonder if I can still check out lol


With the release of the Carrack they are updating the 2948 Explorer and Explorer Megapack to a 2950 version. Not sure if the ships will change but it will be more expensive!

Today may be the last day if 3.8.2 goes live.

Current pricing is based on the $350ish original price. Currently it's $500 and is why the pack is such a deal.

I believe the Carrack itself may increase in price with the flight-ready model. Perhaps to $550-600 while offering a $500 Warbond. The exploration pack may be repackaged based on $500 for a little savings over the new Carrack price.

But whether the Carrack itself increases or not, we know the packs are going up, possibly between $100-150 to offset the current Carrack price.

I'm thankful that I pounced on purchasing the Exploration Pack when I did. I hope that mine will come with the special skin, but if not then I'll just get it painted by Anvil in game after that feature becomes available.

they REALLY jacked up the prices....

Carrack is not worth $600.... Even at CIG prices, it should only be 325-400 - Less cargo, little more guns than the Cat. Anvil Tax, Rover tax, Pisces tax...maybe 450 max...certainly not 600....OMG..WTF are they thinking?

Sadly its probably due to all the extra man hours it took for the new remake. What i dont understand is... the standalone is 625(non-warbond) for the carrack expedition then the Carrack with C8x is 620 usd but when you try to upgrade to the expedition with C8x its 640?(25 usd) what kind of nonsense is that. it should be 5 usd so that it matches the standalone price.

I feel like I cheated the system.

I knew it was coming so I melted my old pack and bought 2 Exploration. Then wanted to melt those to buy the Megapack so it's in buyback. But it went live today instead of tomorrow so they took those down for the expensive ones.

But in preparation of melting my two packs after the 24 hours, I had the Megapack in my cart. Got it today after it stopped being sold! Lol, gottum!

I'm just irritated by the lack of clarity. The way it looks, if I use the 5 dollar livery upgrade, I may loose my already purchased c8x expedition, which makes no sense at all.

That's fucking junk, lol. I already have the expedition. I just want the livery.
I've learned my lesson when it comes to upgrades. Don't apply them unless:
1. The ship you're upgrading to is currently flight ready and proven to work.
2. You're 100% sure you're not going to melt that ship/package.
3. Have a backup CCU just in case you do melt.

All over that. It just blows that CIG is charging 25 bucks for a fucking skin.
Unless there's something I'm not tracking.
