    Origin 600i announcement. $375 w/LTI. Lots of different Origin-related LTI packs.

    TBH I'm not really sure what I'm looking at. It's reasonably well armed but it's default loadout is energy weapons while it's covered in tons of undersized engines being run off an undersized power plant supplying two undersized shields. It's squishier than a cutlass black and carries less cargo, while being a huge, round computer mouse shaped target. It's also a 5-person ship that only seats three, and has automated turrets?

    What is the market here? One asshole playing safe PvE content while four people goof off and play Star Trek?

    Here are the ship pages (since once again they only link to the shop pages, IDK why they do that...) but for now the stats are identical except the explorer has 36 cargo rather than 16 for the touring (Cutlass Black = 33 in a ship of less than half this size).

    Nowadays when people start to get killed by fireballs, no one says they need to dodge the fireball anymore; they say they need to go get a fire resist ring and some ice damage so they don't have to.

    Obviously this is the ship for people that want to roleplay as a trust fund baby in space.

    Still a gorgeous ship. I would pilot it, just to zip around in. The Origin ships I tested out all felt fast and sleek and this probably is fun to fly.

    Where is PTU at anyway? I have been ignoring my weekly emails.

    Same. I figure between the comm links and reddit I'll know when it's worth coming back.

    I'm under the impression the whole project is stuck in development hell right now. While I've little doubt something resembling a game will eventually get released they need to get someone high up in the project that is less creative and more contentious. They keep welding new shit on an unstable foundation they are never gonna finish.

    There's a third personal transport coming out now. The Origin X1.

    It didn't immediately seem useful to me because it's presented as a flat-out racer that didn't seem terribly useful, especially on the crazy terrain we've seen for most planets. It has no cargo space, the weakest weapons and cannot carry a passenger. However, Bored Gamer on youtube made a great point. The Force variant promises to allow the user to equip two shield mods. As the game gets fleshed out this could allow it to defend itself against multiple weapon types, or against both weapons and some environmental hazard at the same time, or double down on protection against some really crazy environmental hazard. At very least, it would make the fastest "bike" style ship also the tankiest vs small arms.
