    Unfortunately I'm one of the people getting the log-in timed out error, so no comment about the hangar.

    I'm considering upgrading my Colonel package to a Admiral package to get a Constellation and drop my Hornet. I thought this was possible but I cannot seem to find an option to do so.

    Edit: Is the only way to reclaim my original package and then purchase another one? Will this still give me LTI and other perks of being an original backer?

    Edit 2: It seems that reclaiming is the only way to upgrade. The one thread I found about it says he did not lose any perks of being an original backer. I am still a bit hesitant. I may just purchase the Rear Admiral Package first and the melt my Colonel Package.

    Yup so I keep all of my Original Backer perks but I must melt my original package and purchase a new one.

    I went for the cutlass over the freelancer for myself for the simple reason the cutlass is going to be at the front line. So LTI on that ship is a no brainier. The Freelancer on the other hand can be used in safe space so you don't need to be putting it in any real danger.

    That's the Freelancer. Kind of a "jack of all trades" ship. On the previous page I made a video of it.

    It was handed down by God to the PC master race... and it was good.

    Basically, it's like an updated Wing Commander, then when you're done with the 50 or so missions, you're unleashed into a large open universe to do as you please. Really though, click on the links in the OP.

    You can definitely do that after the missions... You will most likely be able to co-op during them.

    50 missions is a lot. Why not play EVE?

    I do play Eve... When my "have a life meter" is at a very low point. Really though, I've been waiting for this game since the last good Wing Commander game came out. I'm a fan.

    The squadron 42 part seems to be the single player campaign. So.. you can do the dogfighting/ co-op in the multiplayer persistent universe part.

    It's actually $5 cheaper but not beta or alpha. For Beta and Alpha access you need the $40 Digital Mercenary package.

    Interesting.

    LOL I just worked out what was wrong!

    You have to sign out of the RSI site to be able to see the new tier of prices!

    I'll have to remake that list!


    New backer


    Digital scout @ $30 (Aurora) no alpha or beta, 2 months insurance
    Digital Mercenary @ $40 (aurora)
    Digital Bounty Hunter @ $65 (300i) 4 months insurance
    Pathfinder @ $75 4 months insurance
    Arbiter @ $80 4 months insurance
    Digital Colonel @ $125 (hornet) 6 months insurance
    Digital Freelancer @ $125 (freelancer) 6 months insurance


    Original backer

    All with alpha beta access, full game, and LTI


    Digital scout @ $35
    Digital Bounty Hunter @ $60 (300i) Saving $5
    Pathfinder @ $75 Saving $0
    Arbiter @ $80 Saving $0
    Digital Colonel @ $110 (hornet) Saving $15
    Digital Pirate @ $110 (cutlass) No direct new backer equivalent nearest would be Digital Mercenary @ $40 + cutlass @ $100 Saving $30
    Digital Freelancer @ $110 (freelancer) Saving $15


    I'll edit out the other post as well
