  1. Hi,

    I look forward to doing a nice writeup in time to come being the proud (I hope) owner of Star Citizen, a game that offers a lot of hope and potential.
    Stay tuned :)

    I've got a Constellation and a Cutlass myself and I'm aiming to get a Hornet next.

    Walked around both and even got inside the Constellation in the Hangar module. Serious awesome stuff, can't wait to see what the Dogfighting module is going to be like!

    The videos were awesome, especially the second one, and those ships are downright sexy, not to mention the realism, but this looks like a "need a big bank roll" to get involved, especially with the kind of ship I would love to have, so I doubt that you'll see my purple ass in the galaxy anytime too soon.

    I guess my question would be ... does this entire game take place in space? Are there any planets or colonies where any other kind of building or developing takes place?

    It looks absolutely amazing.

  7. Awesome and agree, btw was it the ghost version of the Hornet you were getting, that one looked unreal and would definitely have some cool uses for various missions.

    Something for you EwoK:

  8. For now, yes it mainly takes place in space.
    Still researching out a lot at this time, but yes there are other buildings/colonies/factories etc underway.

    If the Ghost one was the stealth version then I was thinking about it.....but I also like the idea of the standard heavy version too so I can deal out the punishment.....what I'll probably end up doing is getting both.

    Does 2.18 remind anyone else of the early entropia artwork. I mean the shape of the buildings in the city scape.

    That's the first thing I thought of when I watched the video Wistrel.

  13. From what I have read thus far, this will definitely not be the case. You can start off with a small and very fast exploration style ship (See the single ship packages above).

    The game can be operated off a very small entertainment budget over time with all features available to you. And ofc you also have quite a few discovery/exploration routes you can take in charting unknown space for resource fields which can then be sold on the market to further fund your journey throughout your time in Star Citizen if what I have read and seen thus far holds true through to release time.

    Heh! Well ok, but you do know ... You can start small and work your way up if you wanted too. ;P

    If I recall my conversation with Obie correctly that we had today, I think he said something about having an interest in the Star Citizen game, so I'm sure he and I will be discussing this further. :biggrin:

    Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:

    Well, I now have the Ghost ;)

    Next week I'll get the Hornet and then look at what ship to get next after that....

  17. Nice one! Thought you might go for the Ghost :thumbsup:
    Not only does it look sick, it has those features you want for those deep space probing & recon missions.

    yep, I'll use the Ghost when I want to go sneaky sneak sneak :sneaky: but still pack a wallop if needs be....the Hornet is for when I want to kick the cat and make a bit of noise :shoot:
  19. No kicking this cat .... My pet spectral space FirePuzzyKat! (Guardian)
