You know, videos are a wonderful thing. Shows you how things look, move, etc. Nothing prepared me for the level of detail that I just saw, my first time entering the game. To be objective, yes, there is more that isn’t finished than is. A lot more. But what is finished is absolutely stunning. It also reflects the level of commitment of the development team(s) to continue this way.
So finding my way easily to the Hanger Bays (thanks Morphologis…again (AREA 18 of course)), getting familiar with the multitude of controls and trying to take in all the visuals was…is…almost overwhelming. Not often I’m at a loss for words, but I have to say, this is way way beyond what I’d even prepped for. My hand was literally shaking when I brought up my Nomad into the bay for pre inspection. If what I’d seen was any indication…and I wasn’t disappointed. The opposite in fact. Where the detail everywhere I’d walked, the interactions with the vending areas had been fantastic, the ship detail blew me away. Musta look awful silly sitting here, my jaw hanging open, just gawking at something that was so exquisite. And then I got in. Just…wow!
So of course, after a thorough investigation of the Nomad, it was on to the Cutlass Red and finally the Freelancer Max. And that is where I have spent the last hour or so…self indulging on my ships. Suppose I should probably learn how to fly them but prior to that, I bought a brand new HOTAS I have to install and figure out and I’ve got to, got to, get mumble installed, cause damn, I am definitely gonna need some assistance.
Couple of quick (hopefully) questions: With Hangers removed, how do you modify your ships? Access your paint schemes and armor. Load ROCS?
Also, I seem to have two extra ships in my Hanger list for selection…an Avril Arrow and a RSI Aurora MR…have no idea how or why they are there. I didn’t buy them.
Okay onto headset installation and mumble download…hopefully talk to y’all soon.
