Buying ships and other such items from the CE store with cash

Post by Sunflowers » Wed Sep 11, 2019 10:07 am

I want a new ship. No, I'll rephrase that: I NEED a new ship! I have a Monitor which I've kept going for several years by adding cargo expanders and PODs and such like and every so often, when I'm in V-P, I head off to one of the ship stores and drool over the wonderful ships on offer at an eye-watering price which I can't afford - even at a trade-in :( . I know there are player-made ships but I'd be quite happy to support CE by treating myself for birthdays or Christmases to a nice shiny all-singing, all-dancing ship with a cargo hold the size of the universe (those specs could also be tailored to the requirements of other professions, such as fighters and the rest).

I've also maxed out my ship POD points. I've even bought a 10 point increase from the CE Store (currently the maximum available), but I still have most of my POD slots empty and I have to juggle the items in the filled slots in an attempt to balance them every time I change what I want to do. Again, I'd be very happy to buy enough POD points to enable me to fill all those frustratingly empty slots and enable me to cruise around the CE universe without wondering what I can remove and insert and then finding out I need 5 POD points for what I want to use when I only have 2 remaining!

The Halloween and Xmas events have pods that are low points but still useful. Event Pods (Olympics and World Cup) are also very good. And until you can get those you can go to a reward NPC and get some of the Reward Program versions of the Event Pods

Some ships are available from the CE Store via a token. I believe all the PM ship parts are there to buy, you still need a player with a ship manufacturing facility to "cook it" for you. On pods, have you gone to the Reward Collection NPC? Those pods are all multi fit, so you can have more than one of each type.

Honestly speaking, I'd say the "normal" ships have become basically useless. There might be the odd case of one actually offering something special, but for the most part, there is no reason not to get a PM ship (either via collecting/crafting everything yourself or via the CE store) at the first opportunity.

Maybe someone can come up with a way to make the "normal" ships actually worth considering...
With great power comes the great realization that you can have just as much fun simply annoying each other.
