Star Citizen’s Vanduul Scythe will soon be flyable

    
47

Remember the very first Star Citizen trailer from 2012? I’m sure you do because it was completely badass, even though way back then it was sort of a tech demo for Squadron 42. It featured an enemy craft called a Scythe, and while the design has been tweaked since then, the ship retained its asymmetrical alien look as it was ported into the Arena Commander dogfighting module as an AI opponent.

Soon Star Citizens will get to fly the Scythe, though fortunately they won’t have to speak Vanduul to decipher the ship’s systems. “In Star Citizen’s fiction, the Scythes currently available have been modified by a human aerospace company,” Cloud Imperium explains in its latest website update. “They include human-designed control surfaces and HUD software that has been modified with human-appropriate text and graphics. These systems will still retain an alien style, but will be fully usable by those who don’t speak (grunt?) Vanduul.”

midimaker blaaznar well the problem is that a lot of us want to play with the hotas but unfortunately mouse aiming is still superior.

LordOfBread thickenergy I think it looks more like the Strakha Stealth fighter, personally.

Thornz MatthewWard They’ve hinted that you may be able to insure the Scythe in the outer rim areas.

Probably because rain forests on other planets also are protected. Haha. But somewhere out there it must be a Teak and Mahogany plantage planet. ;)

I actually like the idea of wooden interiors over the sterile modern look.
I never did understand why everything always had to look so streamlined and sterile instead of the cozy wooden look.

Maybe I’ll mention it to someone in CIG when I meet them in Manchester. ;)
The new corvette could be targeted for pirate use, complete with dark wood interior, a large dining room with chandeliers and long oak table, a treasure room, prisoner pit, and a big rear captain’s cabin. Shiver me timbers! Of course it can be used for those of us who aren’t pirates too. :)

You could always suggest they add it.

Well the subs are not just for that.
The subs actually pay for all the shows, such as ATV, RTV, 10FTC, etc.
The token is just a little extra perk for the imperator subscribers

“You think this won’t end up in the cash shop?”

Yes.
