That's good to know....I just thought I'd gotten really rusty and I'd lost my ability to use a joystick.Yes, ESP is not working properly in 2.5.0.
Been flying around a lot of stuff with everything being unlocked for the moment.
Not a big fan of the Reliant. I had a feeling I wouldn't like that huge wingspan and I don't......really had to watch myself buzzing around asteroids in Yela.
Still not very excited about the Freelancer. I was hoping this would be my take a friend and have some fun ship, but I really don't like the view. It's functional enough....I assume we'll see more interesting goodies when they get the DUR variant out and maybe I'll be stoked again.
The Khartu-Al - wtf were they thinking with those struts? No way I'm ever going to get this ship.
I really like the Cutlass, as I mentioned before....and now I'm really thinking about picking one up. Especially with the rework that's going to modularize the interior and let you pick some different options. I'm really looking for a ship that I can either fly solo or find a friend to do a variety of stuff with, without being a big multi-crew ship like a Connie.
It's also more "fun" to fly than the Freelancer. Doesn't feel nearly as big and "space truck-ish." Has a loadout that can do some damage, and hopefully will handle better post-rework (they said it most certainly will - - and likely be faster).
I really like what I see on the rework info, with the new crew amenities (including 2 escape pods / lockers / gun racks / beds, etc), nice drop-down cargo hold, and docking station / tractor beam, it seems like you could really do a variety of different jobs with it.
