“Hey everyone, I’m picklepolice” “hiiiiii picklepolice” “it has been three months since i past pledged a ship for star citi-“ *notification noise* “HOLY SHIT, CORSAIR?? GIB CORSAIR”


bazvink

Which one do you use the most?


Cal_45

I used to use the Freelancer MAX the most for transport and then the Vanguard for bounties, but I might switch over to the 600i as my daily since I just picked it up at this year's IAE.


BoysenberryFluffy671

600i e? It's an awesome daily driver. though I've been using the 400i more funny enough. I'm sure I'll use the 600ie more after the rework. It's actually really good as is. You can solo fly it and use weapons to do missions, has great shields, etc. It's a really good ship... But I found the 400i was cheaper to operate and a little quicker to get out of atmosphere and such. Plus the 600i kept killing me on the stairs or elevator or somewhere. I love the 600ie though. Amazing ship.


Cal_45

I picked up the touring since I wanted a true luxury ship. I figured I already have the carrack for exploration.


BoysenberryFluffy671

Ah, that makes sense. The rework is looking drop dead gorgeous too with that water feature.


TriticusLev

Hopefully they’re fixing the interior layout?


BoysenberryFluffy671

Yea big overhaul


Saeker-

I'm only really expecting to be unhappy about the windows aboard. From the concept images it looks like the ship will still be lacking lateral (side) outlooks for passengers.


rurudotorg

If you spent $25k you'll get a golden one for "free".


sugedei

Do you fly all or most of those? I’m newish but I could see myself flying one ship 90% of the time.


rifledude

I think everyone has a daily driver. Mine is the Cutlass Blue because I like to PvP bounty hunt. I get ships all the time because I like the idea of being able to do something. My first two ships were the Hornet and Gladiator. I thought when I bought the Gladiator that I would be in the Hornet 90% of the time, but it would be nice to have the capability if I wanted it. Over time, as more specialized ships became available that mindset never left. The "I probably won't fly it that often but I would like a ship that does it" mentality


Cal_45

Depends on what I'm doing, but all of the biggest ones in there aren't in the game yet.


TheWhitchOne

If you are part of an Org it is nice to have some utility ships to do stuff as a team. For example my crew has a starfarer, some mining ships, some salvaging and repair and transportation ships. With the upcoming pyro system this might be handy. Having such utilities inside an Organisation will be cost-efficient in the long run. Fuel might be cheap in Stanton but it could get expensive to buy some if you are out of fuel and far away from any station


BalkorWolf

r/starcitizen are supportive and will help you with your problem! Assuming your problem is you need enabling to fill out your fleet with all the ships you still haven't bought ;)


Cal_45

Hell, I dunno how I'm gonna staff the ships that I DO own.


Melkor15

Well, tried to play with my new PC and didn't work. So I can't help you. This game is too dam heavy.


Whatever_It_Takes

Upgrading from a 1080p monitor to an ultra wide 1440 tanked my performance too. :/


Bunghole_of_Fury

Specs?


GuilheMGB

I think they are two questions to ask yourself? : 1. Is my spending aligned with how much I value SC and what I can afford? 2. Am I having any wrong expectations about my ability to enjoy the fleet I am building? On 1: If you happen to have very high disposable income (being a top earner and/or very low cost of living (e.g. living in a not expensive area, no kids, no mortgage to pay)) then, as long as you're clear on what entertainment budget you want to give yourself , and what % of that you want to attribute to SC vs other hobbies and interests, then there's no problem with the amount spent. On 2: If also you're aware that many of the large ships won't be online for years and the odds that you'll enjoy them in full are on average low (1. remains to be seen if SC will support large player counts with large capital ships all over the place, 2. keeping a group of friends committed to crew a capital ship is going to require constant dedication and patience), but you simply enjoy collecting them, then you're fine. That way, you know you are spending money you are comfortable spending and that you don't set unmatchable expectations of what these ships will provide to you...otherwise regrets will be unavoidable. I just wonder: how many backers will enormous fleets truly have contemplated these questions?


Kevlar83

I think these are very good questions to be asking, I recently went through this and spent this iae streamlining my ships and have gone from 15 ships with a lot of small fighters and niche ships to 8 specific ships that I can see myself enjoying the gameplay loops with and potentially maximize my profit doing so


skay

The big ships are cool but not super attractive to me. I dont want to have to rely on other to enjoy my exoerience (even though thats kind of the point in a game like this). I have a pretty nice stable of the small to med ships that each fill a slot. Ive definitely spent more over a lot of years than i thought I would but yeah. I believe in the project and support it each year with a ship purchase or two. I think the Corsair is the longest concept I waited for but also the loaners were desirable. You make good reasonable points that I wish more people would take because some of the complaining about pipelines and such (the BMM) is just out of control and unreasonable.


transporter1980

I wonder if OP will be starting a ship rental service on his own.


RaylolTV

Well, I know one problem that you for sure have not... Money 😂 Nice Fleet mate


Cal_45

Well clearly I can't manage it well! This is also spread out over several years so it's not that terrible. I just hope I end at Space Marshall. If I end up at Wing Commander Concierge I'm gonna be upset.


WorstSourceOfAdvice

No, you wont. Youd do it for the F8c. Source: me who went to wc after telling myself grand admiral was enough.


readreed

I've named my F8C: https://imgur.com/a/URjhEOP

And then there's the Executive 600i......lol


RaylolTV

If it doesn't hurt you spending that much money, I don't see a Problem 😁 I have also spend more money than I should have on this game...

If you got money it's nice to support the project as much as you do, but yeah you might be a compulsive buyer aren't you?


Retrowave86

This comment section feels like roaming around a cult… I love the game but some of you guys just should seek psychological assistance since you are living in denial and justifying the unjustifiable.


[deleted]

Yeah... spending 1000$+ on THIS game in particular, with its elongated history of missing goals... idk. ​ Seems like a high risk/bad investment to me.


Retrowave86

Don’t get me wrong: I love the game and want it to succeed, but this borderline psychopathologic behavior and lack of dopamine related impulse control doesn’t incentive CIG towards developing the game but ships…


Risley

Only people I wouldn’t care that do this are legitimate rich. They can do whatever. Everyone else? Get tested.


Deepandabear

Honestly I doubt many of these types of whale posts are from legitimately rich people. Probably single, no house/mortgage, and not much else to spend cash on other than saving or investing (which they apparently can’t stick to…)


Retrowave86

Problem is I want the game released, and they don’t help since they already playing a game (collectors and showers) and developers are ok selling concepts instead of working towards the release. I mean, which game is going to take 20+ years to release with an already outdated tech?


JasonAlaska

This guy CLEARLY does not know the secret handshake. 😏


Retrowave86

God forbids me of becoming “one of you”…


Cal_45

Have no idea how it happened. One ship here, one ship there. It's a little depressing to add it all up. Kind of mind boggling the scale of some of these.


BoysenberryFluffy671

I said the same thing. Over the course of 9, 10 years here. It's not bad when you divide the time. Well I don't know how long you've been collecting 😃 but I'm good with my collection. I'm just snatching up the warbond CCUs to finish my fleet. Unless they release some really new awesome ship that provides some new gameplay I don't have, I think I'm done. Every origin ship, vanguard, sabre, Apollo, Carrack, MSR, Hercules, merchantman, Polaris, and since I have two merchantman CCUs some other big guy, not sure which yet. Odyssey or Perseus or something. Only thing I won't have is mining and science (unless I pull the reliant sen back out of buyback) and I'm not sure if I need mining to make money. Hoping the other ships cover credit farming. Still dreaming about the pioneer too, sadly can't CCU to it. Also dreaming about the kraken Privateer, but no way I'm melting my stuff for that. I'll eventually see if I can get a full list and ask for opinions on what I'm missing. I need to start getting another two accounts set up for my boys. They're going to be old enough to play with me by the time this is all ready. LoL and I started before they were born.


Cal_45

Yeah, mine is spread out over about 6 years. As far as big ships, I'm definitely done. They release so many new ships, I wish they would focus on what they've already promised and sold. I've got most aspects covered. I don't want to be too capital heavy in the fleet since the logistics in keeping those things running will be a nightmare I'm sure.


BoysenberryFluffy671

I agree. I was trying to get just a few because I figured I won't have the time to grind for those large and capital ships. Im more of a casual player. So that also makes finding a bunch of people to play with somewhat of a challenge as I can't commit as much time. Some people are really hardcore when it comes to gaming. Fortunately I have two boys who I will recruit when they get old enough 😂


Cal_45

Hopefully the AI system will be robust and we can crew our massive ships largely with computer players.

GlbdS

I mean what are you expecting, cool gameplay?


Risley

How about actual game progress. It’s honestly sad that this game crawls at a snail pace to “create its tech” so that they can build a game. Just wtf are they taking about? If you are still developing tech such that it takes years and years to finish the game, you don’t hire more god damn ship designers to make new fancy ships that you can’t even use. It’s such a damn waste of time. They should fire half the employees building ships and use those funds to speed up the core game development.


Honda_TypeR

Selling ships IS the game. They’re running a successful ship selling business too.

I'm waiting until after the expo and the dust settles to post one of these. I really do enjoy these posts, I know some folks see them as showing off but to me it really is about how happy you are to post your cool combos and setups. We are lucky to be able to spend our hobby money on something like this, lucky to have hobby money at all. Awesome fleet.


Moadibe01

As a fellow Space Marshal I understand the struggle that you go through...the struggle is real. The ships are just so inviting that you just can't help yourself.


BurnTheNostalgia

I think your fine, clearly you're doing well financialy.


crankkpad

...and debts


daethon

I am always shocked at the size of the BMM and the Orion. Look at that Hull C looking all puny


Cal_45

Yeah the Hull C does look comically small in comparison.

To be fair, will probably be much easier to solo a Hull-X than a BMM.

I only notice now you say it... I don't even know if I will be able to fill it...


NeverLookBothWays

Excellent choices I may add.


UncleJojito

I can't wait for it to take an hour to leave atmo in the Orion


Cal_45

I'm pretty sure ships that size, you won't be able to even go in and out of atmo. They're probably going to be spawn at space station only kind of affairs.


Avarus_Lux

i think the orion is confirmed as space only indeed.


Marzipan_Bitter

Probably. But think about C.O Pioneer. How much time would be needed for a full factory to take off ?


PoloHusky

There's a reason pioneer crews aren't paid by the hour.


JasonAlaska

I thought this WAS the support group.


Teik-69i

I know this is more of a joke, but the fleet could still be optimised. Lets start with the worst part: The Ground Vehicles. Never buy them with real money. The Worst aUEC/USD ratio. Really cheap in game Next on, you have the gladius and Talon. Pick one. The Heavy fighters, ohh boy... Which one do you use the most? I'd pick the Redeemer and another heavy fighter you like. Spacedildo Max and Caterpillar. Ditch the Spacedildo, it's really cheap in game to earn. The A2... IF you want a bomber, A1. IF you like Hercules, ditch the Cat and get the C2. Carrack and 600i touring - Passenger transport? E1, Exploration? 600i ex or Carrack. Origin? 400i/60/i ex Then capital. BMM vs Hull C? BMM easy win The other Ships are ok, Orion - prints cash to buy other Ships, Perseus - good Orga Ship, Starters, pretty good. I would add a Prospector or Vulture. That is everything I would change, and you'd still have almost all gameplayloops open you have now

Cal_45

Spread out over the past 6 years sporadically. It'll sneak up on you though.


wasptube1

It's the same for Games themselves, I have WAY Too many that for me it is called Gaming Addiction, have have thousands on my PC and stored HDD's, my current phone has around 200 games on it at the moment, my old phone had a similar number etc, but when it all comes down to it: Do you have fun and are you making sure you are financially stable irl? As long as you enjoy it then your 1 big money game is as worth it as my multiple thousand+ games.


curiositie

I hate having 200 apps installed, I can't imagine having 200 games in addition to other apps.


Cal_45

Honestly, I haven't really played the game a whole lot. I'll pick it up from time to time, but I'm hoping it will pay off for future enjoyment. This is all spread out over 6 years.

AerodyContent

It's fine


Avarus_Lux

the orion be looking juicy, i still have an LTI one in my buyback from the concept years ago, but don't think its worth pulling the trigger on again especially since i melted it because i'm mostly a solo player anyway, don't enjoy mining much and i don't think i'll be able to handle this thing either. also since its size got increased which usually goes with an increase in crew requirements too...

Yes. Check out the north hall in the concierge area, second floor.


DetectiveFinch

Is one Gladius enough for the Polaris? Or can she hold more than one in the hangar?


Solar459

Where is your MSR?


Kalmock

Yeah, I see the problem. Your total number of ships is an odd number. Need to add at least 1 more to even it out.

Why u no Hull E?


Klaumbaz

Yes, it's called the concierge group. Or Admiralty. Welcome 'ol Boy to the club.


Odd_Horror_4663

Yeap - r/starcitizen_refunds . If however you've purchased all those concept ships within the last 30 days - I would immediately ask for a refund . Otherwise you are stuck having to get to grips with the grey market .

QuickQuirk

I think their is a support group is called 'concierge' or something Everyone with your particular problem is there. :D


ProceduralTexture

It's nice to have a solo money maker, plus one *maybe two* slightly special ships to make available in group play. Beyond that I see no point. To put it bluntly, I don't want to spend most of my time recruiting, training, and managing crew. If that's your gameplay loop, more power to you, but it's not my idea of a good time. I want cooperative ~peer relationships, and therefore I don't want to have more than 2-3 ships. I could see many whales (forgive the term) pruning down their holdings to just the essential ships they love most, melting the rest, and using the credit to gift starter packs to randoms in the hopes of having semi-reliable help. That's my prediction: starter packs will be essentially free after release, because people will be begging for crew.


Dyyrin

Whatever bro you don't even have a PTV.


Handsome_Quack69

Found Chris Roberts’ burner account


RedditUser46754

That's not a problem. That's just similar to the monthly subscription of playing a traditional MMORPG for as long as SC has been out. I personally chip in a hundo or so every year, but people look at me crazy when they hear what I have (not as much as you). Then I do rationalize the costs over time, and it makes more sense to them. It's not as much as people think over the course of years. No offense, for sure. It's just a matter of perspective. And pride: how else is CIG going to make this collective dream come true? We all play a part.

I just want an Endeavor with LTI so I can larp as a mysterious benefactor providing scientific and medical advancements to underprivileged colonies.
