Looks awesome, am I right in thinking you have to buy these with real money (I'm sure I read something about having to buy ships with real money somewhere, or am I wrong
Noooo! I would never spend real money to buy in game stuff and still kicking myself for spending extra for DLC in The Crew. Only cosmetic stuff is for sale in the shop, skin for all ships. It is pricey and did cost 20 times what my last ship cost and then I still had to outfit her, another 4 times that. Money isn't too hard to make but takes some time.
It's a decent ship. Has extra firepower, armor, and shields, but still not a dedicated fighting ship. Can hold it's own unless ganged up on by true fighting ships. It is classed as a multipurpose ship. The view is great from the bubble. The big draw is the hyperspace jump distance and an extra large fuel tank, 34 light years if equipped properly, about 10 more than any other ship. Makes for getting to a star where you can scoop fuel a bit better. If you run out of fuel and no star to scoop from, self destruct is your only way out. Hopefully you have enough credits for insurance, about 1.5 million.
Was funny but when taking these snaps, I saw there was someone seated at the copilot station. Wondered who the heck was sitting there. Started a post on those forums with this snap I edited for a few chuckles. It's my automatic copilot.
