And yes you are buying air at the moment but this game has enough money that it will happen no matter what. I look at it as preordering a game and getting some goodies.

At this point though you have less than a day to buy in if you want any of the goodies else I would just wait till release in 2014/15. Although anyone with LTI can buy you a package and gift it to you and you will get into the alpha/beta as long as there are slots left 58k last I checked.

The other thing that got me to buy another ship ( 325 Fighter to augment my constellation ) is the idea of lifetime insurance for it. I really got fed up with having to keep buying insurance for my ships in Eve.

I would be up for contributing to a SimHQ corp ship, but couldn't commit to a large amount ( my wife would kill me if she knew how much I'd already spent on a "Game". biggrin )

So, can someone explain to me (since I am lazy to read it), what expires today?

I have the $35 starter that got me the Aurora. It looks like I could cash that in (reclaim), and use the credit and pay difference on another ship (300i or other).

Just debating dropping a bit more cash, and was wondering on some clarification on what is not available to do after today.

Cheers!

EDIT: actually read a bit.

It looks like I can reclaim my package, and buy either the Arbiter or Pathfinder package getting a 300i variant for either (these are the only packages I would be interested in buying).

Question though, would I be able to not do anything now, but still buy a 325 or 315 later as a standalone ship ($75 or $80) with lifetime insurance?

Just wondering if I want to keep the Aurora when I want to do trading, and then the 325 for bounty hunting or combat. Does anyone know the cargo space difference in the Aurora over the 300 series?

Cheers!

Awesome, thanks!

So, the Aurora has less cargo space than the 300i (8 vs. 5).

I wonder if I should 'cash in' my aurora for the 300 and then look at getting a more dedicated trading ship later on?

Thoughts?

Cheers!

The LTI thing that expires today only affects NEW purchases. Anyone who already has a copy will still be able to buy the starter packages (aurora, 300i, hornet, freelancer and constellation).

The limited ships will also go away today. Starfarer, catipillar, m50 the two military bombers... some others...

But anyone who bought early will still be able to buy LTI ships and packages and gift them to people. So its not the LAST time you will be able to get LTI just the last time you can officially get it through RSI.

Great,

Thanks Master.

Gives me more time to justify spending more money on yet to be real, yet sure to be awesome virtual items.

Only a fraction to 14 million, people are amazing!

Which means we'll get:
4th city on Earth
ability to save while in space, not just when docked
a documentary "Making of Star Citizen"

While everybody will love the hibernation mode, i bet there will be another heated discussion when they reveal the 4th city.

My top three are Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and Frankfurt. CIG should definitely have a poll on this one.

While I agree those cities would look great, with a nod to Firefly (the curses), the look of Blade Runner and the economic importance of the country and region, Hong Kong/Shenzhen (grown into one) would be one to consider too.

We are at 14 millions now.

I agree with CTR69, i would like either Rio de Janeiro or Sidney added as a fourth city. Hong Kong is cool, but Rio or Sidney are more appealing IMO.

15 MILLIONS NEW STRETCH GOALS

- Additional flyable ship class: escort carrier
- The Upgrade Handbook: an extra 42-page manual that walks players through the process of customizing and overclocking their ship systems! (PDF free to all backers before $15 million)

First one is very interesting for guilds or squadrons. Also give us more big targets to blow-up. biggrin


16 MILLIONS JUST ANNOUNCED NEW STRETCH GOALS

- Arena mode: an area for players to test one anothers skills without risking valuable items or hard-earned ships and experience. Place bets on competitions across the galaxy.
- A laser pistol for every pledger before this point. Keep your ship safe from boarders with a pistol by your side.

To be honest none of them seems appealing to me, but its still good to have something for motivation.

I think the arena mode is a great idea. It should cut down on some griefing since those who just want to dogfight can now do so without picking random fights and they wont have a fear of losing their gear.

I`m a little late to the party, so is there a reason why I should buy a package now? Will they get more expensive after release?

Point is, my gaming time is limited and while I was a big fan of the WC series back then, I`m still undecided if I like all the aspects of SC. Especially loosing ships from your hangar. About a year ago I lost my X3 campaign just when things were getting a little more interesting due to a HDD crash, I abandoned the game until last moth `cause I was too frustrated to start all over again. So my fear is having my 46 y/o ass blown out of space from some trigger happy teens within minutes. My style of game would most probably be trading in a Freelancer or exploring in a 315p.


Second, I liked Elite a lot too and it seems both games might come out in the same time-frame.

So why should I buy now, when the LTI stuff is being over??

It works like this. The early backers during the initial campaign were given a bunch of goodies along with Life Time Insurance (LTI) on whatever ship they bought. That LTI was supposed to end with the initial campaign but they extended it out so more people could buy into the game. Then they decided once the game gets to xx million dollars they would give LTI to all backs who had already bought the game.

Well they finally ended the LTI (for now) but it will probably come back again down the line.

Without LTI when you buy in you still get access to the alpha and beta stuff but you will only get 6 months worth of Insurance on your starter ship. After that six months is up you will have to hire on as a crew or take a loan in order to buy a new ship if you die or start a new game.

Also there is a price hike.

The basic starter package for early backers still costs 30 bucks where it costs more now for new backers. As the deadline closes for beta (dec this year) the price will slowly increase and once they run out of beta copies they will probably stop selling packages all together and then you will have to wait for the game to release.

That is not to say you cant still get LTI at the early backer prices. You just need to get someone with early backer status to gift you the pledge. So you send them xx paypal money and they buy it and gift it to your email address and you then have a LTI package. (obviously you must trust this person)

So if I spend $140 for the Digital Colonel package I currently get 6 months of insurance for my Anvil Aerospace Hornet. If my ship gets destroyed after the 6 months, it's just.....gone? The ship ALONE is $110!!! That's $110 of REAL money....and that's before a price hike. The automatic LTI ended the 6th of this month so it's no longer available. It would appear, with the disappearance of LTI, there's really no reason to spend more than the absolute bare amount to get Alpha/Beta access.

What's the deal? There has to be some way of purchasing LTI for a reasonable amount of money.

I honeslty don't see how they can make this game work at these prices. The Anvil Aerospace Hornet alone costs more than Steel Beasts Pro PE. Let's say the Hornet, for instance, stays the same price and the game is released in 2015 for $49.99. That would put the game at $160 USD for 1 ship.

Am I confused or is this the most expensive game in the history of the known universe? lol jawdrop

It is the most expensive game ever... pretty much... except for the fact that all my RoF planes cost more than what I put into this game... and all my FSX addons cost more... and... smile

As for LTI, yes it has expired. But anyone with an original backer status can still buy it at the original price and gift it to you and you would have LTI. SO just find someone, send them the money via paypal and then have them buy it and gift it to you.

How much is the LTI if you go that route?

Ark,

I went to that link, looks like it is for a 'new backer'.

I am seeing the Lifetime insurance on my purchase options for original backer.

I am actually thinking of 'reclaiming' my Scout LTI package with the Aurora and getting either the Arbiter or Pathfinder package. Just have to decide if I want the 315 or 325.... decisions, decisions...

Yea ark that is only for NEW backers though. They have a tier system going.

Read this:
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/12986-Lifetime-Insurance-Clarification

So anyone who backed the game earlier can still buy LTI at the original price. Anyone buying into the game now has to either buy limited insurance at a higher price or find someone to buy it for them and gift it to them. This still wont open up your ability to buy new LTI packages but the package gifted to you will have LTI.
