My concern is that the Origin day announcement said the 300s are due a "polish pass" or similar. Sounded less like a rework and more of a cosmetics update. They desperately need a full rework.For me, anyway, the most exciting thing about seeing the 85X wasn't the 85X - - it's looking forward to seeing what they're going to do with the 300x rehash based on that level of fidelity. My 315P and 350R are anxiously waiting.
They will recieve a polish update to bring them to current standards in the future.
Ugh....I hope that's not the case. The 300, of all the early ships, is in the worst need of a real redesign. Hoping that doesn't just get "Mk 2'd" and not end up in current owner's hands (or any Mk.II ship). I haven't seen anything solid on that yet, but leaving current owners with the old, horrible design sounds like a pretty bad call.That could be because they intend to keep old (current) 300 series, old Aurora series and old Hornets models in-game, with only minor adjustments (such as re-made damage states).
The re-designed 300, Aurora and Hornet ships will come later, as Mk. II. And the current owners might not get them.
In that case, the old model was NOT kept in game, so naturally everybody got the new model. It is a big difference.With the Connie redesign all owners received the Mk 4s while Mk III is still a thing in lore. I doubt they'd alter that formula.
My concern is that a legitimate rework is pretty far down the pipe for them.
Do you have a link where they said they will do it that way? I wonder if something is out of context. It makes no sense to keep the current models in game. They look as bad if not worse than the Connie Mk III. The current models should at least be brought up to their current detail targets as indicated in the Origin Day announcement.If they do not change their minds, 300, Aurora and Hornet will keep the old models in-game, alongside the new models. They did not done something like this before, so there are no prior cases to use as reference of what might happen.
That's really disappointing for those ships. The current models are sub-par. It doesn't hold that an older model Hornet looks appropriate as a lower detail and lower poly ship. Older looking based off style and wear is fine, but if it looks like it's from another game quality-wise it will stick out.Watch (and listen) starting from 4min:20sec up to 6min:50 sec, with the most important part at about 6min:30 sec:
I would guess there would be a slight pass done updating some of the model because it will most likely be needed to add in the damage states. It will most likely continue to look the way they currently do, but may have some minor tweaks to the mesh to create the appropriate damage layers.I'm actually ok with multiple variants, especially as they mentioned that they would be getting the damage shaders. I'd also assume they'd get other general tech updates, just no changes to the general model.
I agree. With enough negative reactions, maybe they will abandon this plan.That's really disappointing for those ships. The current models are sub-par.

Pretty poor way to handle it, IMO.
Good chance we'll see it this year, then - - barring some real buggars during the testing.Full 2.6 Build and Browser version of Spectrum are out to Evocati
The FPS module is a 'simulation'. It's not for missions. It's basically Unreal Tournament.I'm still not getting the purpose of the FPS module. I get the idea there will be missions to complete like the above video but what happens when you die, do you only have one life to complete the mission? Same with boarding a ship, do you only have one life? What happens to your ship? What happens if 3 Ballers are defending a ship and 2 die?
