    I want the M50 but I'm done spending money. Wondering if I should melt my Cutlass down for it. I have two other multi-crewed ships and I'm thinking the Cutlass is the odd man out.

    I dunno - the cutlass seems to be the heaviest fighter that can be single-manned at the moment (F8 lightning is meant to be a dedicated heavy fighter). Of course the M50 and 350R are both looking good for the race mode AC will get in the future.

    Just tried Swarm mode for the first time since patching 12.5. I must say wow - huge difference. Controls feel more responsive, weapon projectiles are faster with better tracking of enemies, sound effects are awesome - you can hear a ton of new stuff from your own thrusters to enemy fire missing you to shields depleting in your ship. If you've not tried swarm mode since 12.5 I would strongly suggest giving it a go - makes the previous releases look very poor by comparison.

    **edit**

    Origin M50 is now live in the hangar. Imgur album of it is here: http://imgur.com/a/fP9zB#4

    I'm trying to go for the old Lotus F1 livery. I figure I'll possibly add some Lotus badges and some numbers. I need to work with it a bit yet.

    New constellation variants just got patched in! Can't wait for the livestream in 50mins.

    We're expecting:
    - 2 new game modes to be shown (1 is a racing mode)
    - preview of v0.9 including in-game control mapping and full simultaneous 6DOF controls
    - constellation brochure, commercial and variants sale
    - preview of multi-crew ship flight (constellation again)
    - more (but they've kept it secret)

    **edit**

    Someone's already got an imgur album of the new constellation layout here: http://imgur.com/a/uP0WC

    I know my Freelancer's not a dogfighting ship, but I really would like the opportunity to get her out there and swing around the asteroids a few times :)

    I'm actually looking forward to taking my 'Lancer into AC. then again, it is the MIS variant :D
    Ooh, that's nice. That tickles me in a way that if Loretta tickled me that way, I'd say "yeah, that's the spot."
    Joking aside, it looks great. I'm glad they finally figured out how the cargo area and Merlin's bay will be implemented.

    After seeing a premature release of the connie commercial I want the Merlin free variant - the Aquila (explorer variant). Pre-release vid here: http://www.pcgames.de/Star-Citizen-...iler-zeigt-Landung-auf-Alienplaneten-1132668/. (warning: the video is glorious. Hide your wallet before viewing.)

    Ha, loved the nods toward 2001: A Space Odyssey.
    Can definitely say that I'll be keeping my standard variant for now. Unless there's a limited variant that really intrigues me(like the MIS variant for the Freelancer), I'll either keep it vanilla or earn the hull upgrade in-game.

    Niice. Was tempted, but damn that Aquila was too tempting after seeing the commercial. Insta-purchased. That Phoenix is limited to 5,000 for sale, so an LTI one will be nice and rare (compared to the majority of ships).

    Oh and can you update the OP to change my Freelancer to the MIS and my constellation to an Aquila.

    We should also get some co-op games going when the friend codes launch in 0.9 - will be nice to fly with you guys!

    If only I could still get an LTI connie. I wish I could melt my LTI ships and get an LTI connie.

    all the videos I saw today. mindblown....

    So does the normal Connie (now the Andromeda I am seeing) no longer have the Merlin fighter that was listed as part of it back when they first put it on sale?

    Are these variants able to be acquired through the game itself with in game currency?

    I really do like the look of that Phoenix...but a $125 upgrade to a $225 ship....... *wallet am crying*

    The Andromeda does have the Merlin still. The Taurus is the only variant that doesn't have space to dock one, and the Aquila is not meant to come with the Merlin (it has one in the hangar at the moment, but that's likely to get removed).

    All variants will be available in-game for in-game currency.

    Phoenix is expensive, but it does come with an in-game piano :p

    When they add the constellation to arena commander later this year they'll sell cross-chassis upgrades. What the minimum ship needed for the upgrade is I don't know but they will be available eventually (allowing you to get one with LTI). Of course the question is will they let more people get Phoenix variants by then..

    Seems the Phoenix loses a missle hard point but gains a class 9 hardpoint which is a capital defense system? Supposedly the "normal" Andromeda has the most weapon hardpoints
