      Hi all,

      With the impending beta now due about the middle of next week (for us Australians) i know you will all be keen to hear whats next for the Angeli.

      A few of the leadership have access to the beta including myself so once we have had a chance to download and digest the political changes we will then make a decision on where our loyalties are and what area of space we will potentially move to.

      I think we are all keen to stay where we are as we have plenty of history but with a major change like this we may find ourselves in the wrong spot.

      The upside of selling our assets in the Wangal area and moving on is its a fresh start for all and a chance to forge a new home for us. We have plenty of experience with flipping systems now and we have the manpower, so providing things don’t change too drastically we could flip a new imperial corporate home within a week or so and more than likely be moved before powerplay even hits the main server.

      We will keep you updated with progress, if the worst happens and we move we will need a lot of scouting for a new home so be ready.

      Further to that, whilst we are a ‘casual’ group we will be calling on all Angeli CMDRs to assist for the first week or two so we can establish a new home base if required.  So be prepared to move quickly.

      Two more days and we will have a good idea of what we’re going to do.

      Keep us updated, if we need to restage elsewhere for when power play lands.

      I guess a potential target home has been selected?

      Ill keep the drives warmed up, and the beer fridge stocked.

      You guys take your Lavian brandy with or without gold foil?

        Who in their right mind drinks Lavian brandy without gold foil? If I find anyone doing that I’ll tut them. Severely. They shall receive a severe tuttering!

      No potential target yet, as soon as we know, we’ll start looking if required.

      I think the best et, is anybody who has it, jump on and we can look, also if you can be on teamspeak too, it will be beneficial.

      The only thing we would ask is that those who have Beta access refrain from posting too much on the forums for now, we would like to give a concise plan for our next actions so wild speculation from those with Beta access could cause confusion.

      Aye-aye captains!

      At the ready for action if required when the intel and orders arrive.

      I just had a thought though. They wouldn’t pull a dirty trick like arranging the powers differently in beta from final release would they? That sure would be evil. 🙂

      Yeah i think its all probably a little too handcrafted for them to make major changes anyway.

      I don’t have beta access, but I did just read the latest Dev update and newsletter:

      Diamondback looks awesome, but looks like it will be a small ship – bah! – I was hoping for either:

      • Med ship that can carry 250 tonnes a decent distance (Python-esque, but geared to trade / exploration); Or,
      • Large ship that can go up to 300 tonnes cargo for price between Clipper and T9

      So, it seems I have enough cash to purchase and kit out an Imperial Courier when PowerPlay goes GA release, meaning I should be able to go exploring for possible alternate locations for AI

      @Mori: Any initial suggestions as to distance from Wangal and general direction to search in?

       


      Oi! That's Baron von Schnellenstein to you, mate. No, it doesn't matter that I'm an Imperial Prince!

      I’ve left it downloading, so won’t be able to add to any conversation til this afternoon after work.

      Sounds like it came out around 1am in Sydney so even if i had stayed up it would only have given me a quick look before work so i’m glad i went to bed.

      Well my hopes of participating in beta have been hamstrung,  my mouse doesn’t work and sits in the middle of the screen. The ‘fix’ which is to enable hardware cursor doesn’t work in the Rift. I’ve posted this in the ‘mouse not working’ bug report….. until its sorted I’ll have to stay in normal, sorry guys.

      So now the Diamondback has gone back to been called the Diamondback Explorer. And going by how small the Powerplay Beta 7 changelog is, it can’t be far away until 1.3 is out.

      Edit. Ok so after reading a bit more I see the Diamondback Explorer is a completely different ship to the Diamondback Scout, which is also available in the beta. Well, similar ship but bigger.

      At this stage i would be surprised if we saw it before Tuesday, releasing at the tail end of the week is only great if they are getting paid overtime to work the weekend.

      They would be much better off continuing to squish bugs and release on their usual Tuesday schedule and give everyone the weekend to test their very latest build.

      But they may yet surprise us!
