not a fan of either of TNGS ships, pinchers on one and giant outboard engines on a helicopter body for the other, I"ll be voting shard mostly because I really feel the pinchers have no place in StarCitizen and will just make an awful lot of work for someone from CIG. Its a losing battle though as both are almost guaranteed to be in game. And in general I'm just not a fan of how the contest was run in a few aspects. Judges not seeing actual model files just videos, voting happening immediately after the 2nd episode, few others. That being said I think all the semifinalists are amazingly talented, and I hope to see them all in game. A few tweaks here and there to the ships, IXM would make a great corvette for example

Also new Freelancers, so many missiles when they make it into the DFM in v2.

I was surprised when 3dingo dropped out as I think they would have won.

not enough time, the team only had one member modeling from what I've heard. Honestly I don't think CIG gave the teams nearly enough time, Tallon another 1 man team never had a hope really especially having to balance it with a full time job and just learning cryengine. It was biased towards the more professional team heavily I think. 4HM are all professions who do it for a living, would have been nice to give the smaller hobbists a chance.

Freelancer+ package, which is just a base model as all those fancy new models didn't exist when I bought it.

That's too bad! the MAX looks like it would be really good for hauling lots of cargo with an escort. The prices are pretty steep tho.. At least you get the business hangar + 6 months insurance.

With the next patch that tunes the controls I think I'll be ready for mp as well. Remapped some of my X52's buttons to keyboard/mouse keys and that in itself made a world of difference. Still not what I would consider "good" but I'm getting there I think Partly I'm excited about MP just because we'll be fighting a larger variety of ships.

I upgraded my Freelancer to the DUR explorer but that Missile boat will be a beast with how effective missiles currently are. The MAX one looks nice as well for cargo, interesting that they gave it a smaller max shield.

and that jump animation. Sure its just the beginning and end of it but still very impressive

@Lowfat You can buy one of the upgrade packs and then apply it to your preexisting pack. Doesn't effect insurance or anything else with it.
