Too bad we didn't think of this sooner. Might have been able to "group-buy" a carrier for ourselves.
The largest ship made available by funding was the Iridis Corvette. They had a limited quantity of 250 available during a live stream and they sold out in 9 minutes (at $1000 a pop)

I play games to escape, not to replicate annoying crap in my life like fees and insurance. I hate when they do crap like that.

I'm in for the CP fleet with my hornet. May end up buying another ship too at some point before November.

Anyone planning on getting an Oculus Rift for this game?

Honestly I really want an MISC Freelancer. That is my goal in the game. I don't really have the expendable funds to just buy it now, so I will work my way up to it in-game.

One of my main interests in this game, because it sounds like it will actually be viable and worthwhile, is exploration. So my first ship will be the RSI Aurora ES, with plans to eventually upgrade to a MISC Freelancer.

I have nothing yet, but I am probably going in for the Hornet or some other single manned fighter.

I'm really hoping that there will be areas for newbies or seldom users to play in and not become automatic food for the hardcore gamers.

There will be systems that are safe, others that are absolutely not safe.

This game is supposed to support Oculus Rift for the first fully immersive space shooter/FPS universe.

If that's the case, I won't need my Eyefinity setup anymore but I have no idea how I'll see the keyboard or my other controls. I'll have to memorize everything by feel?

I think a game pad will be PERFECT for this. I have an Xbox 360 controller to use with my computer for this exact kind of thing. Plus, the Xbox 360 controller is the one being used by the Oculus Rift developers at the moment.

Who plays space shooters with a keyboard/mouse?

Logitech G490 or bust.

I'll trade you my Aurora ES for your Aurora LX!

I would think TrackIR would be the ideal setup for a game like this. Being able to look around independent of where you're flying could be very useful.

This is making my plan of starting my own criminal syndicate sound much more viable

I'll be the one charting some out of the way star system and selling you the jump map so you can secure your criminal base of operations in a lawless system.
