Wait, I thought CIG said they wouldn't put anymore concept ships on the market until the FPS is released or was it until they release something.....? I mean I'm not complaining if they do put the Endeavor on sale next week because I plan on getting one myself. I cannot imagine it being over $600 though since the manufacturer of the Endeavor is MISC and the size of the Hull-E, like someone else said, was about the same general size. Man if it does come out next week, it will be an expensive week fo me :D

Anyone plan on getting the Crucible or the Prowler? I'm probably not going to get the Prowler because I already have the Redeemer and I don't need another troop transport. The Crucible, on the other hand, looks like something I could get which would heavily depend upon how it repairs and how it looks.

If they have the Idris-P available for the anniversary sale, I might end up getting that. But, after that I think I will be done buying ships simply because I have all of my bases covered for what I want to do in the verse when I'm not on mission. Who will be done buying ships after this series?

The Hospital Ship was the last ship I put on my "to buy" list. While a repair ship would be interesting too, I would likely need a bunch of those to get the effect I am looking for - so I would rather go back to a core planet and fix my ships up completely or let that task for others. In terms of troop transports I am allready ok with my 2 Redeemers. In afterthought an extra Troop Module for my Retaliators would have been a nice addition too. But dedicated boarding crafts are not really what I am looking for.

Since I bougth some smaller extra ships I would also have the option to get an LTI Endevour at a later time once the CCU+ is released. Although I am not really sure if they would go so far as to allow upgrading loads of LTI Auroras into Starfarers, Carracks or bigger vessels. I know many (and I) are hoping for it, but it seems unbalanced.

As said before, maybe there will be a cheaper Skelleton Endevour to buy without any modules which we could outfit in the PU at a later time. Let's see if the Hospital Modules will be ready for the Concept sale. If not it would be a lot cheaper for me (temporarily) to get the Endevour into my fleet and I could buy the Hospital Module with LTI at a later time.

Well pricing is out for the Endeavor, it's a lot cheaper than I was expecting though not sure if I'll pick one up.
Pretty crazy the pricing when you think about it you can purchase the base endeavor for the price of the Esperia Glaive.

I guess I will get a base Hope for $450 and be happy.

When there are prices there is Hope! 8-)

I will most likely pass this one too.

In a forum post, Ben said that the Endeavor will go on sale this coming Tuesday. He said some things didn't look right with the pods and are spending the weekend to iron them out.

Without seeing any of the concept art, The Endeavor is basically the ship I want. It's like they stole my fever dream from early in the dev cycle and gave it a name. A bloody dreadnought of a science vessel in MISC stylings? I need it. Too bad I can't possibly afford the fish sales these days.

It might be that CIG is a bit short on the funding side currently. Since the Ship-Sales are what keeps the funding consistently above 2 Million a month (June and July were roughly only 1 Million each) that's the only way I could think of why the Endevour is sold at the pricepoint it is. It doesn't really compare well with the Starliner which is also a civillian classed ship, but much smaller.

Also here is a cite from Chris Interview with Polygon:
"Roberts scoffs at the notion that the company will run out of money before the final game is delivered. "It's not going to happen. We keep a pretty healthy cash reserve. We managed our expenses based on the revenue we bring in. We have our development timeline and we know what we're doing. We adjust. If I'm not bringing in $3 million or $2 million a month, we aren't going to have as many people working on it."
(http://www.polygon.com/features/2015/8/ ... ar-citizen)

I don't know if I would like this to be the cause for the sacking of some employees last week. Then at least it wouldn't have been caused by some failure on their part.

Whatever is happening behind the scenes, I hope it's not coming back to haunt CIG eventually. I'm not worrying so much about the financial side, as Chris could get dozens of millions out of potential investors if the need was severe and still dictate his terms on them in the current situation.

Some people say that SQ42 might be delayed quite a bit since some of the core features would not be ready in time for it's release. I can understand these concers, since Multicrew (Gost) and Large World is hardly even finished at this point, but since Multiplayer Drop-in was removed from SQ42 we are facing far fewer technical issues here. I guess that most major features will not premier in SQ42 Episode 1 and that it instead focuses on Fighter Combat and FPS only. I think it is pretty important that SQ42 doesn't get delayed too much (1-2 Months is ok) as the revenue of it's sales will get CIG into a comfortable position.

Sorry for the negative post, but I had to get it out of my system somehow....
