Freelancer at weight watchers

Postby SYN_DerHesse70 » Tue May 27, 2014 7:24 am

Did you see that in the new ship specs (May 21th, 2014) the Freelancer is rated with 26t weight. Before it were 55t.

With two TR5 main thrusters we have a fast ship now.

And vice versa the "dogfighter" Cutlass is now at 34t with two TR4 main thrusters (and near the same freight capacity).

Also the Avenger lost massive weight and is now only at 13t (half of an Hornet or 300i).

And the Retaliator is now 15m longer than the Constallation anf lighter.

Good to see that they are updating that old specs finally.

Yes good news that they are tweaking the flight models :grin:

No time to check, what is the community saying? I imagine the weight is lowered because the ship needs to carry cargo, so all the weight loss is taken up in that capacity at those times, which means what? Will it be a pig fully loaded?

I'd like to know if all ships are in the DFM, or just certain ones... :???:

I think the weight of the Freelancer was an mistake in the ship specs. It always was to heavy for it's size compared to other ships. Also the lenght of the Retaliator was a mistake.

I think the Freelancer will be realtively agile with freight. It is one of the lightest medium size cargo ships. With the biggest main thrusters.

In the first round of the DFM there will only be the Aurora, Hornet and 300i! Later we will see the Scythe and the Avenger.

After the single seat ships are in, they will start with the Constellation and Freelancer for the multicrew ships.

Thank you, good to know.

So we'll be able to fly any of those ships in the DFM regardless of whether we own them? That's interesting. The DFM is supposed to be a simulator in our hangar anyways, so it makes sense we can fly them all sooner or later. :cool:

If you don't own an Aurora, Hornet or 300i for the start of the DFM you will get an spare ship. :wink:

Interesting. At first I was ready to blow a gasket when I heard the connie was being added later to DFM. But if all ships will be available that would be cool.

Poor Rumey!

I recognized that the Retaliator lost all of his turrets and torpedos! It is now the civilian version of the ship with a bigger cargo storage. But i read in the SC forum that you can buy all the turrets and torpedos on the aftermarket.
