Currently on buy back, CCU and upgrades do not show up and can not be bought back on applied packages, but melted unapplied CCU do.
So the "PACKAGE - DRAGON*CON/PAX ARENA COMMANDER STARTER" is an ok package for $40? That's what I grabbed tonight. Hope someone on these forums gets a reward as I remember clicking a link here to play for a week a long time ago. Did you link that promotion Lorien?
Anyway here's what it came with:
Starting Money: 1,000 UEC
3 Month Insurance
Digital Star Citizen Manual
Squadron 42 Digital Download
Star Citizen Digital Download
I went ahead to some place called Ostler and flew for a few moments before I fall asleep tonight. The other 3 ships I could choose from in game were trial ships or something? Maybe one is a starter in case your paid ship gets destroyed?
The download was really speedy. 150% faster than Origin and matched Steam's best peak speeds consistently from start to finish. Guess I'll poke around a bit more tomorrow. I'll dream tonight about which key will retract my landing gear.
A few weeks ago on Around the Verse, we mentioned an upcoming Drake Interplanetary ship, and while the name has jumped around between a few choices, we’re happy to say we’re moving into the initial planning stages for the new Drake Buccaneer.
We have a good idea on how we want it to handle and perform, and we’re keeping the loadout details as a surprise until the full concept treatment has been completed, but we want to involve you, the community, in pulling together some reference images for visual inspiration for the ship.
Additionally, since this ship is still in the very early stages of the design, we’re going to keep new thread creation locked in this subforum until we’re closer to an actual concept release. We’ll definitely want to hear all of your feedback on the Buccaneer when we reveal all the details, but for now, we’re just pulling together reference images. Please keep this in mind when contributing to the thread.
Now, since it can be hard to get inspired on just a name, here are the details we can share right now:
• Single-Pilot craft with no interior.
• Fast and Maneuverable, under a pure racer in speed, but handles well at high speed.
• Roughly the same size as a Sabre.
• Pairs well with the Cutlass or Caterpillar as an escort fighter.
• Extreme reliability, exceptional ease of maintenance.
For the next few weeks, pour whatever images come to mind or inspire you when thinking of this ship. We’ll be keeping an eye on the thread to help get a feel for the style this ship will be taking. There’s no cut-off on this yet since we’re just starting into the design on the ship, so toss out whatever you think works. From there, we’ll look over all of the images posted, as well as anything we may find along the way towards concept to help inspire and drive the look and feel of this ship.
