Eh?  The only $75 thing I see is the "Pathfinder" package

Don't say that dick I want lifetime insurance.

Ah yes, I think lifetime insurance no-longer applies. Fear not though Adams, I qualify for LTI so I can buy and then gift you a package.

Edit: Packages for new backers and what ships they come with:

$30 Scout - Comes with the RSI Aurora.
$40 Mercenary - Comes with the RSI Aurora Marque (combat version)
$65 Bounty Hunter - Comes with the Origin 300i.
$75 Pathfinder - Comes with the Origin 315p(exploration version)
$80 Arbiter - Comes with the Origin 325a (combat version)
$140 Freelancer - Comes with the MISC Freelancer.
$140 Colonel - Comes with the Anvil Aerospace Hornet F7C
$250 Rear Admiral - Comes with the RSI Constellation.

There are other more expensive packages but that's kind of mental.

Why no more lifetime insurance we will have to band up and make me some moneis.

It was a reward for those who backed early. They brought it back for everyone in June or July but obviously that was a limited time offer.

However people who buy packages and ships from now until I believe the end of the year still get ships/packages that have lifetime insurance attached to them. Given that they can gift these packages to other people it means that a person who doesn't qualify for lifetime insurance can still obtain a ship with lifetime insurance, it just means that they themselves can only buy ships with four months free insurance.

I think it's a pretty minor advantage, it's just a positive to have a ship that you don't have to worry too much about gettin' blow'd up.

I hear the insurance will be a nominal fee anyway. So what you are saying is you can gift me a ship with lifetime insurance?
Ty

Essentially yeah, but I'd want you to pay me back - I'm not made of money.

happy this game isn't out yet, I saw a video about the intended minimum specs and I am not close haha
Ty

The minimum specs are a little over-emphasised as the game is in pre-pre-pre-Alpha so is completely unoptimised, but it is designed to push PCs to the limit and take advantage of every little bit of power it can. It's also designed for 2014 components rather than today's.

But aside from my GPU I'm running the Hangar Module, (albeit fairly poorly,) on a PC built five years ago - and the GPU is only a mid-range one from early 2012. That's not a bad effort.

Anyway, it's a space game, most of it takes place in a huge void where there's not a lot of need for detailed rendering.

I was watching a webcast on the YouTube's and he said something along the lines of needing to have at least an i7 and a 600 series card just to run the bare minimum. Which at first had me worried but then I realised that stuff is starting to become dated now, and in 2015 at release it certainly will be. I will upgrade in 12-18 months I think.

600 series, really? That kind of narrows down the potential audience.

Maybe, he mentions it somewhere in here, whether they are minimum or recommended I can't remember

Only because older cards don't have DX11 support - the Hangar Module doesn't support DX10, though it has been hacked to support it and later builds probably will support it too. It is unapologetically pandering to the 'PC Master Race' gamers of course. Seems to have worked for them if the whole pledge campaign is anything to go by so I'm not sure they care all that much about limiting their potential audience.

Are you sure about that? I'm pretty sure the 500 series has DX11.
Ty

In that case they'll play it. Trying to start the Hangar Module with a non-DX11 card just gives you a black screen and a cursor though. People have managed to hack the Hangar Module so it'll support DX10 cards so if you can play it with one of those the 500 series should work well enough.

Just got net at the new house and downloaded the hangar module on my old machine. I was expecting 2fps but I am sure I got over 30 and I do not meet the minimum requirements.
FFLink
There is.

My 460s in SLI runs the hanger in what I assume is DX11.

I'll still be getting a new PC for release, though.
