    Planet Arkadia will be auctioning off 20 new high-performance dropships. These dropships are a new addition to interplanetary transportation at the speed of light.

    These 2 seater Firebird Limited Edition are equipped with all the tech required to explore every corner of known space. Fitted with an unlimited thruster, getting off any planet will be done with ease and once off, getting to your destination can be done with simplicity with its own attached unlimited warp drive.

    With this ship, space travel can now be done in style and when stationed, you will not only draw attention but demand respect.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Auctions for the Firebird Limited Edition ships will begin 27th January 2017, with opening bids of 50,000 ped (5,000 USD). Bidding competitions are expected to be fierce with only one ship released each week.


    To see all info regarding the Firebird Limited Edition and take part in the auctions, login to Entropia Universe using the full 3D PC-client and contact any auctioneer. You can also use the Android app Virtual Tycoon to access the auction.

    If you need to create a new or update your existing Entropia Universe account, see https://www.planetarkadia.com

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    More information will be released once auction has started.

    What's the point of this unless you have a lower (preferably 1ped) starting bid? equus are just the same and sell for less:

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/f...91108-Selling-Quad-Wing-Equus&highlight=equus
    42k SB, 45k BO

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/f...p-Resto-amp-Equus-Quad-Others&highlight=equus
    45k SB , 48k BO

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?290586-Quad-Wing-Equus/page3&highlight=equus
    No price shown but i bet you can get it for less than 50k

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?290429-Quad-Wing-Equus-UL&highlight=equus
    42k BO (this one may have sold, not sure)

    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/f...2522-or-trade-Quad-Wing-Equus&highlight=equus
    48k BO



    I like the idea of having more of these ingame (although I thought the ark team had a bit more imagination) but equus were overpriced when they first brought them out and these are seriously overpriced in todays climate.

    Equus new skin... The stats are literally a copy paste, with new skin.


    As a space player, this is not what I wanted to see added to space since it's "already been done", yet another 2 seat transport that can warp :(

    Well, they certainly look a bit cooler than the equus. Somehow I doubt that´s enough to get the extra 5-8k PED vs a "used" equus. After all, those 10%+ make quite a significant difference on ROI.

    I guess they weren´t permitted to put them up for less than what the equus were sold for though.

    But adding another 20 makes resale values even less.

    fire S1.jpg Firebird in Space

    fire S2.jpg The Firebird is more a Blackbird, at certain angles it is hard to see (this might help you hide from pirates)

    fire S3.jpg It apears to handle quite nimble, like the normal Dropship / Sleip.

    fire S4.jpg Once the lights hit it, it looks quite nice.

    Fire cockpit.jpg Big spacious cockpit for 2 side by side, (Unlike the Equus that is 1 behind the other)

    Fire nusul.jpg There is a Nusul plushie in the cockpit (this reminded me of Guardians of the Galaxy)

    I love how it looks
    it should have other stats,
    4 people capacity
    back door entrance instead of the bulb moving up, front end moving parts are too vulnerable and an engineering suicide.

    Nice new toy! I think the description text about load capacity is rather satirical though, hmm? ;)

    Thank you very much for for the cool test ride :)

    One per week. HA! No one wanted the first one and now you have 6 listed at once for 99 days. You look a fool with your original statement, either change the auctions or this post...

    A 2-seater dropship?
    >2-seater
    >dropship

    Y'all realize dropships are meant to be transport vehicles right?

    Think people who coined "Imperial Federal Navy" really care about using terms accurately? ;)

    Using "imperial federal" together only makes sense if I.F.N. are outside mercenaries bound by a treaty (which doesn't seem to be the case in the storyline).

    Nice vehicle, but as with the equus, I think the weight limit and price make it impractical.
