So you can undock and lose it.

CCP, stop making hangar trash. Make it an LP BPC so people will actually use it.

Thank you for the new ship!

Could this ship and BPCs for it be made into LP rewards for The InterBus? Laughing

Aww come on, this is actually pretty neat. Also, what's with all this talk about moving learning skills? You guys lazy or something?

Pretty cool actually, as a proud carebear I have to say that I like this ship already. However, I do agree with the posters who think this ship should be more than a one-time gift. A special shuttle or pleasure yacht is one thing, but a ship that actually has a practical purpose that has to be kept docked for safekeeping even in highsec? That sounds like a bit of a cruel joke to me. :)

Aye.

If this thing is to be actually useful it needs to be merely hideously expensive to lose, not finite.

'Cause if it's finite, we're gonna suicide them every chance we get.

Thank you CCP. Love the concept design.. I hope it looks very close in the rendered version. :)


I would love to see this also have a Skill based counterpart that would provide bonuses to salvaging and maybe even gas mining.

Few things to note

1) The gift was already planned - as the dev blog said, the timing is a coincidence
2) The BONUS SP is the make up for the extended DT
3) If this ship really is useful for PI, there needs to be a way to get a new one to eliminate the "limited edition gankfest" that will occur

Perhaps next time, CCP will gift a one off 100% material efficency 1 run BPC to people to collect (resulting in them still needing to build the ship) and then introducing a normal 5 run BPC into an LP store somewhere???

So is this meant to fill the gap left by having no ship balance changes on ships in tyrannis?

this is sweet! but for those who do not plan to use this ship itd be sweet to trade it in for a large amount (5 million plus) of SP hehe

I have to agree, a free ship is nice and all but how often do you see people undocking zephyrs? A dedicated PI ship that's useful for something other than station spinning would be a nice addition.

As far as I know there are no BPO's coming out with this.

So if they all get blown up, they are gone. Crying or Very sad


Can I make the subtle suggestion to release the hull as a salvage/PI based ship separate from this once and done ship... Please...
Yes please
1. A PI ship would be nice for ferrying stuff around for it, but if this is a one-off it will be the target of rampant suicide ganks reducing the population of these ships to a point where it ends up being treated as a hangar ornament and everyone keeps using regular haulers.
2. A Salvage ship is definitely needed and has been asked for multiple times. Since the fluff for this ship says "salvage vessel" then why not release a version that holds to that ideal.
3. I (and many others for sure) wouldn't mind a multi-purpose ship for handling this kind of stuff.
4. It's an ORE ship, make it fit in a Rorqual please.

I would be pleased by this free gift if the time limit for obtaining it wouldn't be so incredible short for being in the summer holidays!

So just because I'm on vacation I should miss out on this? Even though I pay as everyone else and was equaly affected by the extended downtime?

Free is nice. But if it was fair it would be even nicer...



Global ignorance confirmed. It is indeed Winter here.

And CCP - thanks. I like the idea of occasional oddities, i missed out on the apoth-thingy-shuttle.
Also would like to add that learning skills rock, and that there really is no need to give SP just for DT - this from someone who actually lost training time. The net result of a few 000 SP to each person basically levels out and has zero impact.

Primae looks awesome.
Yes, I also think it should be manufacturable, and useful stats to make it salvager with decent cargo space too added to this or a future iteration of the hull. Explorer bonus perhaps also? Ability to mine without Sleepers attacking, sorta like the Zephyr can explore unmolested by the Sleepers? I think they shouldn't see mining ships as a threat anyway tbh.

Would like to see it's volume reduced to 200,000 m3 so's it could fit inside an Orca too without taking more space than a Hulk does.

I think CCP is giving us the greatest gift of all.

The nerd rage that is generated by every change they make (no matter how minor) is worth 15 bucks a month.
Plus we get to play a pretty good game.

The resources required for them to do an entirely new ship model are considerable. Introducing a probably useless, limited-edition ship with a unique hull (rather than a useful, produceable ship that will add to the game going forward) is a waste of their already woefully mismanaged company resources.

(Although I suppose this is a marginally better use of their time than introducing a useless, gimmicky social network that is several years obsolete at the time of release!)

CCP, I BEG YOU! Remove them as gifts, and seed some BPOs! After about half of these things get blown apart, the other half will be left in stations as yet another collector's item (Zephyr, Apotheosis). I fear the true worth of these ships will be in the unique killmails, not the ships themselves :-(. If you want them to be gifts and to be USED, offer BPOs.

Anyone who wants to use this ship would be too afraid to do so because they know that they are not easily replaceable.

With that kind of thought, stay in station, be a trader or make your operation with fighter for covering your ass !

there will be more. It said it's in full production and every pilot gets to "try one for free" no strings attached. Now I'm no rocket scientist but that certainty sounds like you can build them or at least the market will be seeded.

Thanks CCP, certianly not what most were expecting, but look forwards to adding it to my collection none the less =]

The Primae Ship looks very nice, I like the design of it, looks like a little rorqual or better a "space flying goose" Very Happy .

Have some similarities with the Firefly from the Firefly TV Series too.

Have to agree with above posters that ship or hull needs to be placed as BPC in a ORE LP Store. If CCP wants to turn Planetary Interaction into COOL Stuff and advertise for it, it would be a good step towards it. Just an idea we all remember the rifter in the sandbox video, what about similar advertising video with the primea at the beginning showing how cool PI can be.

Another idea for a PI ship: Please introduce a subcapital industrial command ship that can use "planetary deep core miners" from orbit to extract the PI stuff and maybe allow it starting process jobs on-board. It would be kinda like the deep-core mining ship from the last Star Trek movie. The mining yield should be sth like 5-10 extractors ( ~5000-10000 units/30min-cycle )

Thats just some ideas from me, thinking PI can turn out to be cool & fun and not long-term boring, when supportd with adequate ships/buildings and possibilities.

You know, if ORE actually had a ship LP reward, instead of just mining laser stuff, that'd be pretty neat...
