ok i got the most important stuff out of the way :P

no new updates on a new arena commander build. they did, just update the social module, but nothing to really write home about. you just go in and walk around a city environment. no new, news, on the space marines. will post something as soon as more interesting things come about.

have a good weekend all!.

Haven't seen nor heard from you in a while BlackHawk. You doing ok?

I got this in my email, and thought of you.

Is this something you think we could use? Now that I'm working, I can invest a little more into this game, so I'm tempted to purchase this ship.

hey Bron!

sorry, i havnt checked in on the forums for awhile.

about building the axles.
the job wouldnt be that hard to do. but for me, i did a tear down and rebuild on my metal lathe and stuff. then i got laid off and wasnt able to set it back up again. plus, i have NEVER worked with Stainless before. and im not sure my tooling would be able to work it. or how the material even works. (how it cuts, finishes, or even threads.) at some point if/when i get back on my feet again, i will have to get my setup working, find a piece and play with it and see how it goes.


yea im doing ok. i got laid off for awhile and unemployment insurance is a total joke now. out of 6 weeks off, i only got paid for 3 weeks of it. they make up any and every excuse to deny pay. so i wiped out most of my savings to get threw it. im working right now. but it takes a few months to get back on my feet. its the downside of being paid monthy. uhg.

the Endeavor is a cool ship. i like the concept behind it and the detachable ship on the front. but it needs 16 crew to run. thats a lot of NPCs or friends to crew it lol. the hanger module they are saying can hold possibly 2 hornets inside. or you can use it for cargo if you wish. i cant say to get it or not. just simply dont know enough about how the PU is going to work out yet.

on my racing, ive made slow progress up the ranks. on Old Vanderval now at 19th place, and on the Rikkord Memorial i am now at 15th place!
the race ships are hard to deal with, each feels so very different. the mustang omega/gamma feels like they ride on rails and have substantial boost. but less top speed. the M50 is a bit faster, but drifts just a little more. the 350r is a lot larger, the fastest ship in the game currently, and drifts like your flying on greased owl poo. one thing i have found out though, is if you get decant at racing, it is the quickest and easiest way to build up REC.
even with all my weapon and ship rentals, that i update each weekend, i still have around 100K in my account hehe. oh well, its all fun and games until you crash into a billboard ;)
