Hello there fellow Citizens! Check here for the Q&A from CIG on the Hull D!
The Hull D retains some of the speed and maneuverability of the Hull C while also vastly increasing its cargo capacity. Perhaps the perfect ship to work alongside an RSI Orion mining ship.
Here are some of my favourite parts of this evening’s Q&A on The MISC Hull D:
“Is the modality of the Hull Series largely limited to swapping out cargo pods or is there sufficient room on other parts of the ship to include specialized areas?”
There will be room for internal options, as intended for most of our larger ships. We’re still working on this system, and will release details in the future (expect to see some of the room options on MISC’s Starfarer first.)
“For what reasons might someone choose a HULL D over the more maneuverable HULL C or the much more massive HULL E?”
The simple answer is that the entire lineup is a sliding scale: as more and more cargo space is added, the speed and maneuverability is compromised. The Hull D is for pilots who want to move a lot of cargo, but aren’t willing to go quite as slowly and methodically as the Hull E will require. While it’s tempting to pick the highest number and decide that’s the best, it’s likely that most independent captains would get more bang for their buck with a smaller ship fully laden rather than struggling to afford as much cargo as it would take to stock a Hull E.
