I'd settle for modular weapons for the SRV.  Anti armour/anti ship/anti xeno.

So I got this game, and presumably there's a squad.

My Cmdr name is z64555, as usual.  Please give me a shout here on the forums, IRC, or discord if you want to be friended otherwise I may just ignore the request.

An unabashed bump for this.. Apologies for a day late.

But key points as below

Quote from: Frontier_forum


Ownership
Purchasable with a large amount of credits.
One Fleet Carrier per Commander. Available for base game and Horizons players.


Capacity
Fleet Carriers have a total of 16 Landing Pads, composed of:
8 Large
4 Medium
4 Small
Set permissions to allow others to dock at your Fleet Carrier.


Operations
All Fleet Carriers feature rearm, refuel and repair services.
Commanders can choose a number of loadouts for their Fleet Carrier, governing services/module and ship availability to support a number of different activities, such as:
Bounty Hunter
Mercenary
Pirate
Trader
Smuggler
Miner
Explorer
Search and Rescue


Travel
500 LY jump range (per jump)
Schedule jumps from the Galaxy Map when you want and from wherever you are in the galaxy.
Commanders require a unique resource to fuel the Fleet Carrier in order for it to jump.



Clearly being full time working father of two children aged under two there is no way I'll be affording one of these before they move out 😂😂


Who wants to donate the GTVA Colossus to the Hard Light squadron then?   ;7

Turambar can probably afford it.  :yes:

I reckon GenBat and Der_E have gpr a fair stash of cash.

 
i have the better part of a billion in storage, though it may have been wiped out by parts cost adjustments

I hope they add ways for players to pool money for a massive purchase like a carrier...

That said, it looks (right now) like carriers are going to be personal, meaning players don't need any sort of squad affiliation to get and operate one. There was some mention of docking permissions, and I'd bet dollars to donuts that "squad only" is an option.

Colossus could very well be a go! :)

I picked up this game (along with the Horizons season pass) during the last Steam sale, and am planing on playing for the first time today.  I have no idea where to start other than in-game tutorials, so I am reading a ton of "getting started" stuff and will be reviewing this thread again.  I am Cmdr Deathspeed; hope to see you in-game!
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

I hooked up our squadron to Inara to maybe make it a bit more visible and garner some more interest.  We can push our pro FSO propaganda as well.

Its kind of barebones at the moment but as time goes by we/I will work on it some more.

Inara currently lists me as the squad leader, but IronBeer is the "actual."  He hasn't been around for awhile though, most likely due to life stuffs.  If I'm overstepping here just let me know and I'll gladly take down the squad page.

I can also list the Hard-light Discord, if peeps want it.

It should be noted that the Inara page is seperate from Elite's in-game squadron managment, either it predates it or doesn't have the capability to sync with the squadron data like it can do with individual player data.  This means for folks to join the squadron on Inara will also need to register on Inara and then join the squad from there.

I've got no objections and inara has always been separate to some degree.

I've not been on in a while as my main gaming laptop is down pending maintenance /repair .  I'm relegated to some ryzen / amd vega 3 thing that runs old games and indie games.  Elite would make it explode.

I played Elite with a Radeon HD 7770 for years, don't worry it should run fine.
The worst are the planets but they are still playable, forget about VR though. :P

Vega is the tech used originally for the top line AMD cards, Vega 3 is just scaled down to fit on a CPU dye.
It should be still slower than what I had but I played with a lot of stuff maxed out at 1280x1024, if you play 720p scaling down details (especially lighting/shadows and planets) it will probably be playable.

I've been playing this for a few months now, playing Elite:Dangerous - Horizons on Solo only I managed to work my way up to a Type 9 Heavy, mostly doing delivery and courier missions, until I somehow crashed it during an Auto-docking sequence. I needed the toilet so threw down my pad only to come back to the computer to find whilst I thought it was auto-docking I must have accidently pressed the accelerate button on the pad. I didn't even have enough cash to replace it so had to start all over again, lol. Worked my way back up to a Type 7 Heavy again so far.

Anyway I'm on there as Cmdr Chargingmajor if you'd like to add me as a friend on there.

If we can find a time to hop on together, we could wing up and do some mining, as its the best method of getting credits.  Since you're starting from square 1 again you may benefit from Eddb's trade loop finder.

[Update]  Managed to get in contact with IronBeer, turns out he's just doing Grad School stuff and has practically no time for games at the moment.  Let us bow our heads in this moment of silence for our comrad

He also managed to update the senior officer perms so we should be able to do most things now.  As a reminder, all old farts long-time members of the forums get senior officer status, while new blood gets officer or lower for the time being.
