i thought the same!


I came into this world with nothing,
through careful management I\'ve got most of it left.

If you didn’t watch the CitizenCon livestream, then you missed a **** ton of good stuff that’s coming in 3.8 and later, not to mention an absolutely amazing presentation by Tony Zurovec on Quantum - the back end system that will control the NPC-driven economy - probably the most amazing panel of the day for me as it shows not only where they’re going, but also what they have been spending a huge amount of time on, and shows (me) that they’re doing this whole game “right”.

Coming is 3.8:
SSOCS v1
Planetary System v4
Personal Persistence (no more wipes unless an update demands it)
New planet: Micro tech
New landing zone: New Babbage (you gotta see it!)
Dynamic weather system
New Star Marine game mode “Theatres of War”
Group Systems improvements

Ill link the keynote videos in a separate thread.

in the meantime...welcome to Pyro!

QuoteThe Carrack comes with two additional free craft - Anvil's own specially designed Pisces snub, and an RSI Ursa Rover.

Pisces Expedition Conversion Kit purchased :D

I spent an hour, just getting around it and checking out the basic features. It's pretty big. most importantly, I didn't encounter a silly bug or fall through, things that didn't work, nothing whatsoever so far!

I gave it a run about last night in arena commander. It's definitely big. Anyone fancy running a few missions maybe Sunday night?

Sure, not very knowledgeable on the current state so would like to reacquaint.

I'm not much better. But at least we can get a few of us and have a play around. I've got the upgraded launch as well as the standard one, so can have a play with the mechanics of that as well.

All are welcome if people want to see the state of play. Can anyone stream?

I have to admit, I'm failing to see the need for a Carrack in my account. So I will probably put that up for sale on the SC Trading pages on Reddit. The funds from that would enable me to invest in a number of other ships I feel would enhance my enjoymnet and suit my style of play. Losing the Pisces is the biggest issue but I'll survive.
Cheers, Bert

That's a real shame. I feel the ship is far from finished and we've not got half the mechanics in yet.

Aye but I just can't see me getting 2 people playing with me often enough, far less 5 to properly crew the ship. Not that we don't have the people or dedication.  I mean we have quite a few Carracks, and other large ships besides. So there's no chance that even a fraction of ships will be used with the right crew numbers on a regular basis, it'll always be NPCs manning the stations.

They sell for $500 LTI with the CX8/Rover and that's a cheap price, I could restock with 3-5 new smaller ships that I would actually use for that sort of cash.
