Star Citizen 3.0 Ships – Your first ship

Star Citizen 3.0 Ships – Your first ship

Today is a great day for Star Citizen! 3.0 is right around the corner or live depending
on when you’re watching and I thought that we might see an influx of new players which
would be considering which ship to buy first, if you’re one of those new players looking
to buy a new or a first ship, then this is the right video for you! At the end of this video I’ll also be teaching
you how to get $5 worth of extra credits in Star Citizen to go along with your new ship. My recommendation would be to pick one of
the following ship packages: The Aurora at 45 us dollars, The Avenger Titan at 75 us
dollars or the Cutlass Black at 105 us dollars. Let’s look at the Aurora, the Aurora is something
a space dad would drive to work every day. It’s very practical, it gets the job done,
its not the most performant ship, its not the flashiest ship, but whatever you want
it to do, within limits of course, it does it. It has a cargo capacity of 3 SCU, which if
you’re new to Star Citizen, it doesn’t mean anything to you. It’s relatively small but then not all ships
can carry cargo so even a small amount of cargo can go a long way when you’re trying
to complete missions. Some missions will require you to transport
cargo, and if you can’t do that, you can’t do the mission. It also has a bed, which is kind of an important
feature in Star Citizen as it is the main way that you’ll be logging out in the game,
the first iteration of that is present in 3.0. So, you can log out via the bed, when you
come back to play — you spawn back into the ship. As for drawbacks, it’s not really agile and,
uhm, its not really focused on one specific job, so then it kinda does all of the jobs,
but not extremely well, you wouldn’t say that this is the best ship at anything, really. If you somehow get in a combat scenario in
the Aurora, you can count on it to get you out, most of the time. As long as it’s a 1v1, in most cases you’ll
be able to get out. And all in all, I think that it’s a great
starter ship for any new player that wants to try pretty much everything that star citizen
3.0 has to offer. I’d like to show you the Quantum Travel effects
for the ship, because for some people aesthetics matter and while the effects are pretty much
the same for all the ships, you seeing the ship go into Quantum Travel can really accentuate
some of its features. The Avenger Titan is pretty much a straight
upgrade from the Aurora. If we were playing one of those more typical
games where you would be upgrading your ship instead of choosing a different ship, I really
feel that the Avenger could be a just straight upgrade from the Aurora. First of all, it’s a lot more pleasing visually,
it has better weapons, better agility, better shields, it can carry almost three times as
much cargo, it also has a bed and it’s also a multi-role ship, so it can do cargo, it
can do exploration, it has the bed for logging out, it’s just better overall. However — at the price point of 30 dollars
extra, I’m not sure that it’s worth the upgrade really. It really depends on how efficient you wanna
be with doing stuff, and for most missions that you’re doing in the PU, I think that
an Aurora would do just fine for most of the exploration. So it’s pretty much up to you to decide how
much visuals matter to you, how the ship looks aesthetically and how much performance you
really want. Two options in which I would see the Avenger
Titan as worth the increase in prices is if you put a premium on either cargo as it carries
a bunch more cargo than the Aurora or if you put a premium on combat ability because it
has better combat overall. However, in situations like those I feel that
just a combat ship would do you better than just a multi-role ship that can do combat
okay. The Cutlass Black is the most expensive ship
on the list, but it’s also the biggest one on the list physically, the first two ships
are classed as small ships and this is classed as a medium ship. Upon the first entering the ship, you can
notice the much larger cargo bay compared to the first two ships, it can carry six times
more cargo than the Avenger Titan can and it also has seating for six people, in the
back. and it also has two fast-opening side-doors
for dropship operations. Moving towards the front of the ship, we have
a gun rack which can hold four primary weapons and strategically placed next to the gun rack,
we have the two beds of the ship, and then to the right of the beds we have the turret,
the manned turret, the pilot can not control the turret by himself. Now getting inside and actually piloting the
Cutlass you can feel that it is a much larger ship, its not very agile compared to the Titan,
that’s to be expected. The Cutlass Black really takes the whole multi-role
aspect to a whole new level, it can do cargo exceptionally well, it can function as a dropship
— which none of the other ships on the list can, it can explore more efficiently because
it can carry two people, ground vehicles, as in an ursa rover or dragonfly — which
is basically a space motorbike. All in all, it’s the only viable choice if
you wanna travel the ‘verse with a friend. Unless you each want to pilot your own ship,
which would be an option as well. As I promised in the begining, I’m also going
to explain how you can get 5 dollars worth of extra credits for doing pretty much nothing. All you have to do is scroll down into the
comments section, and look for a highlighted comment by me — Battle Authority — it will
contain a link, which you click on and then you make a new account, on the uhh, main star
citizen website, that will mark me as the person that refered you to the game and it
will give you 5000 extra credits, which are worth 5 dollars if you wanna purchase them
on your own. If you already have an account and you haven’t
bought a ship yet, you can create a new account, it’s totally free and you can have as many
as you want. I wanted to recommend an organization, if
you’re a new player I’m talking about TEST, it’s a very large organization, the largest
organization in the game. and, uhm, when an organization is this large,
I feel that no matter what you’re into, or what question you have or what you want to
do in the game, it’s going to be a lot of people that also want to do the same thing
as you and it’s just overall an organization full of helpful and nice people and join just
a random group, head out into the universe, crash your Aurora, this is the best organization
for you. There’s going to be a link in the description,
just marked TEST, if you’re a new player especially, be sure to give them a chance!

    I'm your 13th suscriber. Lucky number. 😀 Do you think that the Redeemer could be as good starter as a Cutlass?

    Good recommendations .. however the Cutlass really shines at the moment .. I used to recommend the avenger .. and with the upcoming rework and size increase .. perhaps again .. but clearly in 3.0 the cutlass is king .. super versatile and a ship that currently .. one could imagine is a ship you could use for a long time and with friends 🙂

    Nice video for starters of Star Citizen but the Cutless can't have an Ursa Rover inside. However it can hold up to 2 dragonflys or 2 Nox's at the cost of cargo capacity

    I thought the game package that came with the Avenger came with the Stalker variant. Best bang for your buck I think is to get the Mustang starter and CCU over to the Avenger Titan, which actually has the cargo space.

    I want to clear a few things for people thinking about joining.

    #1. YOU MUST TO HAVE A GAME PACKAGE TO PLAY. Sadly, if you don't choose a ship that has "game package" as one of the features, you can't play the game. The avenger Titian doesn't have a game package. So if you want to buy a ship that doesn't have a game package, you have to own a second ship that does.

    #2. Look for a ship that can do all in game features. If you go with a fighter, you won't be able to do cargo runs, or other non combat missions. I suggest you pick a ship that is a jack of all trades so you can experience all aspects of the game. My suggestion is the freelancer or the cutlass black. I personally own the freelancer, and I can attest for its quality, it has a great cargo hold, and surprisingly good combat capability. But from what I hear, the cutlass is very good too. Also, if you can't afford I ship like the freelancer, you can still chose a starter and have fun. Once you are getting tired of your ship, look for people with large ships and ask to help crew them. This is a team game. The large ships always need gunners, and people will always take you along. If you can't find someone in game who needs help, you can join a faction of other players on the website, and they will be more than happy to have you along.

    #3. Melting. Another great thing is the "melting" system. You could always start with an arora, and when you get a bit more money, melt it (melting lets you trade ships for in store credits) and pay the deference for the new ship you want. Keep in mind, this will melt your game package too, so you can't go from the arora to a gladius. You still have to have a ship with a package.

    #4. Be prepared for bugs. This game is full of them and it will be infuriating at times. DO NOT join if you are not willing to put up with it and find work arounds on the internet. If something goes wrong, the dev team will take a very long time to get back to you. It's up to you, and the internet. Please don't expect the devs to help you, because they won't. I sent a request for help in weeks ago, and they still haven't gotten back. I had to tinker in game till I found a way around said bug.
    That being said, if you have a bug, feel free to ask me for help. I'm no expert, but I have dealt with a lot of bugs already, and am more than willing to share what I know.

    I hope someone found this helpful. If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask and I'll do me best to let you know what I know. Have a nice day.

    You buy the Mustang package then CCU to a Titan. The Mustang gives you $5 extra trade in value. So the upgrade only costs $20.
    Trust me, you want the Titan, unless you are rich. Then go with the Cutlass.
    At this time, the Mustang comes with a Loaner aurora.
    But both the Mustang and Aurora are barely worth having. You will want the Titan.
    The Arrow is a good option if you strictly want a fighter
