Ooo blimey! The merchantman's crew is also up to 8! Glad they made it bigger 'cos it didn't seem right having less room than the Starfarer when it was meant to be the uber trading ship!

By the light of a passing glue factory, I could see he was only wearing one boot...

I'm not showing off! Just glad they made it bigger so it can carry more BACON! Plus now it has max crew 8 instead of 4, you will all have to help me to deliver the BACON!

It was updated again...

The caterpillar is now the 3rd biggest cargo hauler in the game.

Take that starfarer!

If I wanted a trader I would of have bought one earlier. Will they change it back, so I can put weapons on it?

That's a shedload of cargo for something that small! 6 times (ish) that of the Connie! 

Imagine if they brought a 'hauler' variant with even more room? 

That said, the pirates need to haul their booty somehow! YARR!

I guess the only way to retaliate with it now is to load its cargo hold with explosives and fly it into your target of choice. But seriously, that is a shitty thing to do to a ship marketed as a bomber.

Hmmm yeah I would guess they will have a lot of complaints if they leave it like that. No hardpoints at all. I can't see that staying the same way. Maybe they think too many people bought Tali's and they want them to trade them in

odd is the freight units for the caterpillar. 3200, starfarer which is a little bigger has only has 900 and connie which is a bit smaller has only 480. an Idris which is considerably larger than ervything else has 860. There is something very odd there. the hull C which is about the same size as the Idris has 9000. If you ask me I would guess the Caterpillar needs a 0 cut and then multiplied by 2 to bring it in line with the rest

agreed it's pretty odd and to scratch the bomb bays from a bomber is very odd indeed ... but well I guess that's all subject to change.

true. maybe the NSA intervened, they didn't like the idea of a BOMBER in the USA that they can't hack yet.

So what do you guys think of the Gladius? I think it looks AMAZING, but 80 USD is just too much for me, I'll rather put that into a PC that can actually run the game.

Luckily all these cool ships are just something to aim for when playing the game.

$80 on a ship that you can essentially work your way towards in-game, or put it towards a PC upgrade. It's a no-brainer

Melt existing stuff (careful not to melt your Alpha/Beta access) and upgrade though if you want too.

sign and I totally agree that there should be something left to work for in the game! The only think I can imagine where I might not be able to resist are the Coni variants once they come out ... unluckily that worked for me with the hornet.
