ever wonder what a $300 spaceship looks like? Drake Caterpillar Tour


21:27 at least it's environmentally friendly The last time they let us run around in one of these huge ships I literally got lost. It took me upwards of 10 minutes to find the bridge. I do get a lot more excited about SC when they have a free fly event, because it means I don't have to putter around in my Space Minivan.

I have a hard time believing these nerds spend $300 on this shit, but then again I remember these nerds probably don't have girlfriends or anything better to spend their money on.

I've spent $400 on this game in total I don't have this ship, but I have several smaller ones and I bought the game for two other people.

We've spent as much on games, but $300 on ONE ship? wtf.

tbf it's a big ass ship. you can park a few tiny ships inside of it, or a lot of cargo. And it's not even the biggest ship planned. just the biggest flyable ship right now. The largest ship planned at the moment is the Idris, which isn't even the largest planned ship class: The Idris-M - Roberts Space Industries It doesn't have a price yet but it will be able to house multiple other ships inside.


Also, I suggest you take another perspective on the cost of these ships. There were literally thousands of man hours plugged into that caterpillar from the planning meetings, the artist time, the modeler, the play testers, the bug fixers, etc. If you consider that those game developers are getting paid anywhere from $25 to $50 an hour, that ship cost the company potentially tens of thousands of dollars to make. There's definitely some people out there who are probably DINKs or just single with nothing better to spend money on and getting paid a high salary for their job. They got cash to spend and they love the potential of this game. Why *NOT* spend $300 on the biggest ship available if you're that person?

The game is still in development, so they charge exorbitant amounts for some ships to keep bringing in money to pay the people building it. When it's done and released all the ships will be available for spacebucks.

so ive been tooling around today in 2.6.3 and it's amazingly stable compared to older versions. Still lots of bugs, but rarely anything that causes a complete crash. i was able to buy in-game clothing with spacebux

I had a shiny gold flightsuit but apparently it disappeared in one of the updates. Now I have to relive my day job rebooting spacerouters to buy a new one.

oh man, so i got a freelancer max a few months ago, but it hasn't been available to play and instead i have been given a normal freelancer in teh mean time. Well the freelancer max is hangar ready apparently. dunno when that happened but i was able to walk around it today. I'm totally going to be able to park my dragonfly in this thing!! It's HUGE!

but isn't the point of playing a game to play the game? the achievement?

If collecting ships is your measure of achievement then sure. But you've played MMOs before. You know there's more to it than that. So for example me, I'm 34. I got two kids and work 50 hours a week. I ALREADY grind in my daily life. That gets me gold, which I then use to buy ships. I specifically bought a Freelancer MAX which is like a $150 ship or something because in he limited time i have, i want to be able to jump in some shit with icy, mohm, eber and Tony and go for some wild space rides on day one.

You could achieve better results with less money by giving us each $20 gift card to buy some alcohol, picking a time when we all can get on discord, and getting drunk as fuck while talking to each other and playing a free game like Heroes of the Storm.

Chesch thinks that's awesome, guy
