Own more than one ship?

Postby smartroad » Sun May 10, 2015 1:10 pm

I was wondering, anyone here have more than one ship in game?

Currently I have 4:
Cobra (Melissa's Romance) - PewPew and little exploring
Asp (The Nomad's Snake) - Exploring
Eagle (The Damned Soul) - PewPew
Type-7 (Stalwart II)- Trading

The Eagle is decked out and I love flying in it. Doesn't last long in a fire-fight though but I think it is a stunning thing to look at. How I wish I could figure out how to pull 3D models out of the game and 3D print one for myself!

The Type-7 is a means to an end before I trade enough for a bigger ship as I mentioned in another thread (probably a Python). It will act as my deposit for it! A doubt anyone is wondering but it is called Stalwart II as Stalwart was my Type-6 I had before the Diso CG :D Please tell me I am not the only one to name my ships... :oops:

currently 7, i think

Anaconda - Annie the Flatulent Anaconda - heavy armed trading
Python - Syfen the Pyfen - medium armed trading. bought because it was discounted, upgraded but not flown yet
Vulture 1 - fighter and very light cargo/utility
Vulture 2 - fighter 100%, maximum survivability
Viper - unmodified, just because i bought the Aus flag skin and i needed something to display it on. never flown.
Cobra - Coby the Crap Cobra - mission courier, smuggling and trade-route scouting
Asp - unarmed long-range explorer, but sometimes gets used as a fast shuttle e.g. to collect CG rewards from distant systems

the Vulture has a bad range and i hate doing a lot of frameshift jumps, so usually i'll take the Asp to whatever system i need to be in, and build a Vulture there, and strip/sell it when i'm finished. so there can be a max of 3 Vultures at any one time

-----> forgot i have an Eagle too. for fun flights or challenging fights

3 atm:

- an asp: My favorite all-rounder for fighting, trading to places without large landing pads or simply a exploring to the sounds of jazz :-)

- My T7 for quick $ and furious alt+tabbing to eddn

- a hauler, because it's my favorite ship in the whole... Ah screw it - I just forgot to sell it when switching ships and now it's sitting some 250ly away. Chilling to my jazz for eternity I presume...

Freagle (never touched)
Viper
Asp (explorer)
Asp
Vulture
T9
Eagle (A-rated taxi)

So that makes 7.

Whatever I'm currently flying is named The Aluminum Mallard - kind of like Air Force One. ;)

The only reason I have two Asps is because back when wear & tear was broken it was too expensive to repair the explorer. I'll use an Eagle or a Sidewinder as a taxi, until they get a way to transport a ship or passenger liners working, but I don't find it realistic to buy & sell larger ships just to save jumps or time.
It's time to give this another go.

Just the one. Anyone who doesn't have a permanent base would find more than one a handicap. If there's some specialist task that need a particular response while staying in an area for a while, build a ship, do the task, sell it and move on.

I had seven to nine ships till like a week ago when I sold most of them. Now I have a Python (Good Vibes) that I rearm all the time and a bunch of sidwinders as bookmarks.
