My long lasting journey with the Mabaethu S88 has come to an end... after weeks of searching for a fighter starship superior to the Mabaethu i have finally found it... I decided to take a few photos with my precious Starfighter before it helps another sole on his/her journey the Mabaethu boasts a simple design and upgraded fighter tech i dismantled my 2 hyperdrives but left some not so needed supplies for the next sole to find it and put it to good use...
the Mabaethu has been a staple in my adventures. helping me fend off pirates, take down sentinel ships and the biggest freighters. i discovered lots of planets with exciting life on each of them... the Mabaethu has been my best friend to this point and may it be help to whoever finds it next (i know it despawns but i like to think it doesn't)
I bought the Mabaethu from a Vy-keen bloke with precious units i'd saved up looking for an ample fighter... i'd spent countless days on planets mining resources to upgrade its tech... no ship will ever be as dear to me as the Mabaethu
With this link you will find all my photos with the Mabaethu
I have a red S20 with a similar hull. I've had several close calls that endeared her to me. I can appreciate your attachment, Chukesys.
I'm hoping to find a nice system to hang out on for a long while. When I purchased the S20 at a space station, my old ship remained in the space station. I was wondering if it might be possible to have the second ship as a warehouse at the space station. As an experiment, I walked to a crashed ship once. I then fixed the wreck up enough to fly it back to the group of buildings where my S20 was. I was able to switch back and forth between the two. I analyzed the base structures so that I could find my way back to the base, but a space station would be easier to access. Maybe an old ship could do double duty as a retainer for Atlas stones and other items, as long as it doesn't vanish.
I hope that an upgrade will eventually allow us to customize the outer hull. I'd really like a black ship with rows of skull and crossbone icons for each pirate I've bested. Perhaps some shark teeth and a name emblazened on the bow like "The Raven".
I really regret getting rid of my starter pod. The little red snub nosed ramamasa or whatever it was called. The new one I got has that circular design around the rear and a squared off cockpit view. I don't like the view and the landing gear never truly touches the ground due to the circular design so I don't like taking pictures with it either.
Hopefully I will find something better soon
Your ship looked pretty cool though. Have fun with the new one!
