Am I misunderstanding what was brought up a while ago by the devs? I thought that we would get our free ____ months of insurance and after that they said it would be affordable to purchase more insurance. It wouldn't be ridiculously priced so we shouldn't have to worry about losing a ship that you spent real hard-earned money on. I have an Aurora LN and a Freelancer. You can bet your booty the Freelancer will be my main ship from day one. Unless I am completely incorrect. In that case I'll end up buying another Aurora variant.

To be honest I bought the Aurora LN and Mustang just for the fun of it really (like to look at more ships in hangar). Cheap ships, and might use them for escorts or lend them to my buddies if needed.

As I am one of the leaders/founders of The Foundation, I will use the Phoenix as a command ship/everything else. I already got a permanent crew member and most likely one of my best friends will also be pretty much permanent to. With the others from clan jumping in now and then. So we will rock around drinking champagne and smoking spaceweed in the hot tub tongue.gif
Joking aside, I will customize the Phoenix some more to fit the command role better and make it my own style (probably remove hot tub for something more useful). Can't wait smile.gif

EDIT: What are you starting out with? Got some cool ships?

I guess you'll be starting out with some cash already then. I vaguely remember a Dev mentioning that it'd be hard to run a Connie straight out of the gate since you need to hire NPC crewmembers, but maybe I misunderstood.

I have a 315p and an Aurora LX. The 315 is for scouting/exploring/salvaging and pirate discouragement, the Aurora is the trash hauler. Eventually I'll hire an NPC to fly the Aurora on the safer routes while I do riskier stuff in the 315 and eventually I'll move into larger ships.

You start with a little bit of change as well as basic hull insurance (lifetime insurance for some of us that backed earlier enough). But like others have said it's probably going to be mildly expensive to man your higher tier ship right out of the gate. You do get some basic starter weapons and such, but remember that fueling up your ship and repairing damaged parts / ammo will still probably be quite expensive when you're just starting out. I'm not 100% sure myself if I'll be running my cutlass right out of the gate just because I'm definitely going to need someone manning my turret for me.

Insurance will only be a fraction of your bills, it is not a big deal to have LTI/free insurance x months. Like real world insurance, it's affordable for most people. You will likely spend more on fuel.

Not really, unless you count the free 10k we got now and the starting cash from the package. It might be harder to start out with a higher end ship, but I don't really think this will be much of a worry for me at least. Considering my friends can work for free in the start etc, but you can also run the Connie alone, although not so safe as with a crew. I might end up buying some NPC's to though, think CIG said they would have that in store later on. Haven't really decided yet.
Worst case scenario I have 3 other ships to chose from, and all with LTI. So there should be no issue to get some dollars smile.gif

Sounds like a good combo, 315p should be a good explorer and the LX is a good starter.

SQ42 & single-seat ships take development precedence over other ships

Caterpillar has been on the backburner as a result

Guessing this is why the Starfarer has been MIA for years.
