I want to say the 300 series is as well at some point, it's status is listed as "update pass scheduled" at least.

My statement was more speculation on why they increased the size and changed things rather than just change the interior and/or exterior with the current size.

They increased the size to add things like airlocks and other features. Previously opening a door on the freelancer would void the entire ship and you couldn't access the rear turret if you had cargo

Aaah, okay, that makes sense... are they addressing that with the Cutlass too? As it is right now, the Red is going to have difficulties getting new patients on-board if it already has one or two. They could probably just use that little hallway in the back as the airlock without changing the shape too much, unless they plan on redesigning the cargo hold all together.

Whatever they decide with the rework, I just want the Cutlass and 300s to have a purpose, they're so cool looking (and I own both biggrin.gif ).

Yeah, all three of the ships are just "bigger"

That seems to be a trend, but it makes sense. The reason behind redesigns are usually that they can't fit the needed systems for their roles.

Same thing happened with the idris but to an extreme extent because it got a different role for sq42.

The connie has grown for the same reason. Now it has airlock seperating cargo from living aera from cockpit. Cutlass is also being redesigned. The 300s will be redesigned as there is no way for them to carry any cargo, however they are not critical and wont be redesigned until the other ships are ingame first.

I don't see a need for the 300i to be redesigned. It's not meant to me a cargo hauler.

What is it meant to be in it's current form? What does it have that would make you buy it instead of an Aurora/Mustang/Avenger, all of which are floating around the similar price point?

It's just meant to be a touring ship. Doesn't need extra cargo, weapons, etc. to be a touring model. Seems pointless. That's why we currently have the selection of ships we have now. Something for everyone.
post #8780 of 9960
I dont think anything is being added to the 300s. At the moment there is no where to put any cargo. You could put it in the middle section but then you wont be able to get into the aircraft. Then there's the issue on how to load and unload the cargo
