Another sale, another update! There's actually several changes here - I've fallen behind.

  • Aegis Avenger Titan (LTI): Blues Mobile
  • Aegis Gladius (LTI):
  • Aegis Sabre (LTI):
  • Aopoa Khartu-al (LTI): Chiasmus
  • Consolidated Outland Mustang Omega, AMD edition: Trojan
  • Drake Herald (LTI): Keanu
  • MISC Hull-B (LTI): Rubber Duck
  • MISC Starfarer (LTI): Hydrogen Jukebox
  • MISC Freelancer DUR (LTI): The Sacred Chao
  • MISC Freelancer MIS (LTI): Death Blossom
  • MISC Reliant Mako (LTI): The Crimson Blade
  • Origin 315p: Long Walk
  • Origin 350R: Stig
  • Origin M50 (LTI): Mid-life Crisis
  • Origin 890 Jump (LTI): Hieronymous
    • Origin 85X: Eponymous
  • RSI Aurora LX (LTI): Beetle
  • RSI Aurora MR (on second account):
  • RSI Constellation Aquila: Denial
    • Kreuger P-52 Merlin:
  • RSI Constellation Phoenix: Acceptance
    • Krueger P-72 Archimedes: Eureka
[/list][/list]

And wow, this list now makes it really clear that CIG truly gave up the idea of LTI being a reward for early backers. The only ship that I bought during the original LTI period is my Freelancer package (now the DUR).

So is it official that we will be naming our ships? Or is this just something we do in a log and doesn't really impact the game per se? It would be kinda cool to name a ship and have "Ship Name" at pad 2 etc...

I *think* we are going to have an in-game way to give names to our ships, but I'm not 100% certain. In any events, it's fun to come up with names.

It will be sad as hell if we can't name our ships. I expect (demand?) my name on the hull with some sort of dynamic system.

Ship names have been a HUGE HUGE HUGE thing since time and memorial and if they leave it out... :(

I doubt that they will let us put the name on the hull as a graphic. It's certainly doable, but it's not going to be a priority until after the game is done, if even then. But I'm sure we will be able to name ships in ways that appear on scans and maybe shows in in the HUD when you see another ship fly by.

The question I have is: what kind of approval process will they have for ship names? I certainly don't want to be told that my beloved Freelancer is out on landing pad C, between the Starfarer "Dickbutt" and the Constellation "N00b|<iLL3r".
