Missing??

Postby RS_Wraith » Tue Jun 27, 2017 9:06 am

So as a player on a relative budget, I was going through my ship manifest. I have a couple of fighters and I have a yacht and then I have some craft that I picked up just because I wanted them (nox/herald) I plan to upgrade my archimedes to the Eclipse as soon as they have it available again and I melted my Rita in order to do so. But as I was playing last night I realized that I don't have anything that will really move cargo... As Rogues I know I will lean more towards the fighting side of the games offerings and I have a Cutlass Red for SAR operations which I will probably use as my daily as well. But what about the Merchantile operations? Do you all think that it will be important enough to us that I should consider getting one of the Hull "x" ships? Has CIG said anything about "in-game" pricing on ships? Will it be feasible for me to just wait and pick up a cargo hauler in game if the need arises and just lease one from Viking until I can afford it or will the ingame prices be high enough (or the lack of insurance) make waiting impractical?

Just wanting to get your alls thoughts

Wraith, I humbly think that any thing you need transported the Org would lend a hand until you get your own in game. (I'm more than open to hauling cargo with you, just let me know.)

With that being said a Mercantile Wing might not be a bad idea, it doesn't need to be massive. Just enough to keep the Org afloat and provide for 'rainy days' should anyone encounter one. (Of which would be paid back to the Org within a reasonable time frame.)

However if you feel you need a hauler, Connie Taurus is 'cheap' - so is the Freelancer. I'm sure the latter would provide a well-rounded foot in the door until we have Org based trade routes.

All the best!

It's not that Judgement, I know if I needed something transported in game I have the Rogues here to help me, it is just me thinking about what parts of the game I may want to play. As it stands I don't think I have anything in my fleet that can do a trade run other than the 890 jump. If I want to jump in game and do some quick trade missions, I really don't have the ability. It is just something I noticed about my ships as I was grabbing the Nox. I hadn't really thought of those kind of missions because I am not really that kind of player, just like I have no real desire to go mining or searching for fuel conversion points, but I could see it being something that grows in game with as advanced as the economy system is looking to be.

I will check out the freelancer and kick around the idea some more.

I figure that there's so much to do in game that it's good for Rogue Squadron to at least dip our toes in most of it. There's probably going to be a lot of money to be made hauling, and having that money will give us the autonomy to do whatever we want out in the verse. Being the good guys is often a thankless job, so we'll need mercantile positions under our wing to counteract that and pay the bills. You can never go wrong with a Hull series, I have a feeling they'll basically be UEC factories when all is said and done.

After doing some digging I used my melted money to go with the Taurus. it is only $10 more than the max but more than doubles the Cargo capacity. I might pick up an upgrade from it to something else later just to keep on the back burner

Taurus is a great cheap hauler, might prove a bit much for solo flight - however being down a turret you would only need one bot with you. I hope it works well for you!

I arrived a bit late into this discussion but I see that you've solved it by buying a Constellation Taurus, @Wraith. Congrats!

About renting/leasing from me, I'm all for that but we don't know yet if the game will have mechanics for it or when that'll be implemented. My rental business will have to wait to startup until such mechanics are in place. However, I can loan out ships to people I know and feel it's safe to trust, like you. :) I can also run cargo for you in a Hull C or whatever you choose from my hangar, if you provide sufficient escort support, cover fuel and other direct expenses. In that case I won't charge you any fees or anything so you keep all of the cargo value (once expenses are covered). This is something I want to do with select friends in the PU, from time to time, because it'll be more fun to do missions together than alone and I can also meet new friends like this, for instance among the crew or fighter escort. Since I'm not a Rogue Squadron member this is also a way for me to provide resources to the org. and fly with you guys - if you want that, of course.

Dude, we would make you a rogue today if the mechanic in game would allow you to run your org for rental as a secondary. I know for me you are a rogue, I am fairly confident that is true for all of us brother (or should I say uncle :-) )

Viking, as I see it, with the org's fleet lineup, we should be doing rentals as an entire org, and having the power behind our org will give us the ability to make sure those rentals come back. For what it's worth, my thought is to have Rogue Squadron look out for it's assets, and that includes any ships we rent out and any members we send on mission with another group. I plan to use what resources are at my disposal to make sure that happens; so once rentals are a thing I'm hoping there's a good place for you to do that here, and the support to make sure you're successful with it.

Thank you, appreciated! Brother or uncle, anyway I'm honored. (I have two nephews and they've never called me uncle ... :( <snif> )

I'd be a Rogue member if you weren't exclusive. But we can have lots of fun together anyway, as I see it.

My company VSR already have a business agreement with the Rogue Squadron. ;)
