when will this ship be updated for the heat mechanic? Also is it possible to buy the blueprint?
@Alki#4651 - As you say there are some clear flaws and misleading specs with the other two ships. The Roid Catcher is a sold as seen ship, where the R&D has already been completed and the ship has been optimized for the end user. You buy it, you use it; no need to edit it to fix flaws and bring the design up to the specs advertised.
Unfortunately ISAN seems a little off nowadays. Best way to check is to use the station transponder speed limit slider until the station text begins to flash.
While the initial cost of the Roid Catcher is higher, the efficiency and speed mean in the long run you make a higher return per hour. It may take an extra run or two to pay for itself, but I would say it is worth the one off cost.
You are more than welcome to purchase the ship and put it through its paces.
@B00M#5454 Currently re-testing all ships to iron out some flawed methodologies. Will add final review once finished, but until then disregard the original review.
@Alki#4651 - Purchase the other two and use them, then tell me they are the better buy. They are poorly constructed, unbalanced and the "specs" listed are simply untrue.
For example, the Roid Catcher has 77,000,000 thrust, which is 11,000,000 more than the Colossus. There is absolutely no way the Colossus would achieve 150 m/s with 3 x T10 asteroids, when the Roid Catcher achieves 130 m/s.
It's pretty good, but arguably better offers on this site are the Colossus or Percheron-CLF. For 500,000 credits you can purchase their BPs and make as many ships of a similar performance as you need. In the long term, they are probably the better buy. All that being said, this is objectively the best looking of the three.
Great ship, 3 trips and it already paid for itself!!!
Works as advertised!
