Ship Splitting

Post by Rocketninja16 » Wed Mar 19, 2014 1:06 am

Is it possible to buy a ship with a few buddies in this game? Just thinking if we pool our resources we could get bigger ships?

Admittedly, I'm interested but haven't researched the game much. Usually when I do some research and poke around a game I'm interested in my Paypal account inexplicably loses money and I'm trying to avoid that glitch right now...

I think that might be something that could work when the game is released. But right now their is no way to visit other peoples hangers so you'd never get to see what you paid for until a later date. Unless people want to start sharing log in information with one another.

When the game is out we will have an Organization hanger. We can share ships there. We will all also pay Org. fees to an Org. bank. I think we have a consensus that the first thing we will save up for is an Idris Frigate.

All fees will be in-game UEC. As it is now there will be no "real money" fees or subscriptions in Star Citizen. The only income CIG will get from us after we buy the game is if you decide to buy UEC with real world cash. This will be limited. Some say this will not be sustainable with CIGs plan to constantly add content to the PU (persistent universe). CIG will also get funds from releasing more single/coop player games in the Star Citizen Verse like Squadron 42. This plan could change if it fails but Chris Roberts is adamant he wants to try this plan first.

Some of the UEC fees will be:
Hanger fees for more hangers (starting hanger is free)
Trading tariffs in some areas
Landing fees in some areas
Insurance fees
Repair/refueling fees
Org. fees

Let me repeat that all the above fees can be paid by playing the game and earning in-game UEC.
I think the Org.fee % will be completely under our control and will all go to our Org. bank.
