As was previously confirmed, all ships bought through the GAO (Galactic Asset Offering), are delivered fully loaded. However, the ships will still be fully customisable. All the various modules, can be changed/sold as needed as confirmed by Bunthius (Star Atlas CPO): “The plan right now is that all GAO ships come with filled crew/component/module slots. In the game, new ships will be barebones and only limited components are bespoke and fixed. You’ll be able to un-slot all these GAO filler items and sell them, and respec individually.“
A short and sweet issue this week, as news and reveals from the team have quieted down a bit. Of course, we’re getting close to the big Community Week event (Feb 26 – March 1), and it’s widely expected that there will be some interesting announcements (if not actual releases) during that week! What we do have for this week is a new JNavigating Star Atlas episode, Joni nominations to vote on, and more DAC stats!
