2017 Anniversary Sale Info Thread
« on: November 10, 2017, 04:05:59 PM »
CIG has announced that the 2017 anniversary sale will run from Friday, November 24 to Monday, December 4.

UPDATE: Here's the schedule!

November 24th – Anvil Aerospace
November 25th – Aegis Dynamics
November 26th – Ground Vehicles and Alien Ships
November 27th – Origin Jumpworks
November 28th – Consolidated Outland
November 29th – Roberts Space Industries
November 30th – MISC (Musashi Industrial & Starflight Concern)
December 1st – Drake Interplanetary
December 2nd-4th – All Manufacturers On Sale

For our new additions and newly-returned members, the yearly anniversary sale temporarily makes available a number of ships which are otherwise limited sale and not normally available for purchase or as an upgrade target. The prices of these ships are higher than their concept sale prices and they don't come with LTI (lifetime insurance) or hangar swag. It's a good chance for you to pick up the ship that's had you drooling since you first saw it. They also tend to put together larger packages which bundle multiple ships together at a very slightly reduced cost. It's important to keep in mind that ships from those packages cannot be melted (returned for store credit) separately, you have to return the entire package. You can, however, upgrade the ships separately, with the upgraded ships still tied to the original package.

I'm going to be very interested to see what kinds of pods/modules they make available this year. Last year the only ship for which you could buy modules was the Endeavor, with its various types of science pods (written up nicely by Meridian here: https://www.guardianhq.com/starcitizen/ship-modulepod-pricing/ ) but given the recent shipyard changes, the rework of the BUK (Battlefield Upgrade Kit) system for the Vanguard, and the fact that the Caterpillar has been in the game now for ages, it wouldn't completely shock me to see modules/pods for other ships make their concept debut in this event.

Please feel free to use this thread for your own speculations and to collect info ahead of and during the sale.

I want a few things, but what I would enjoy doing in a star liner, may not be savable for some time, a salve/seek and destroy, now if theirs a variant of that in this sale, ill melt down a ship.

I'm hoping to see some Cat modules, too, and I don't even own one. I can't imagine that they'll be usable in game for quite some time, but it would be a great time for CIG to announce them, especially in light of the Cutlass rework.

Been gone a long time but was excited to see you guys are playing Star Citizen.  Been excited for this game for a long time and think now may be the time to finally take the plunge since I have a new computer with a GTX1080.  So...

Should I wait for the anniversary sale to get the starter pack?  It seems like limited edition ships just go on sale again but wasn't sure if maybe starter packs are discounted or get something extra. 

I haven't decided on which starter ship but kinda leaning more towards the Mustang (unless that's considered wrong move).  I also plan to do the Squadron 42 addon for the extra $15.  Look forward to joining you guys soon.

I don't know that there will be discounts on starter packs for the anniversary sale, but there may be starter packs with better ships. I don't think it would hurt to wait and find out. At this point, I think the consensus is that the Aurora is a more versatile starter ship, but I heard the Mustang is getting a re-work.

If you're going to make the plunge, you should use one of our referral codes, it gets you an extra 5000 in-game credits if I recall correctly. There's probably a list of them someplace but I don't know where they are so I'm putting mine here. Nobody I've ever shared it with has used it!

As to the plunge on the sale, I have to ask  you two questions: One are you will to spend a larger amount of cash on a on physical item that you may not be able to fully use for a number of years? And the second one; is Do you want to do ( what even you plan on doing on a higher tier on launch day?

IF no to both then I wait to see if the starter packs are cheaper and pick the aurora or mustang.

Yeah, as Thranx has said repeatedly, once you're in the game you can buy practically any ship with in-game currency, and given the great org you'll be running with, there should be no shortage of jobs to do and folks happy to help.

Of course I ignored him and blew a ton of cash, but you don't have to be crazy like me!

I may trade ships, but the only ship I would add is not going to be sold in advance.

The schedule of manufacturer sales during the anniversary event has been released. I have added it to the original post.

I had the same question. I think I’ll waiit until the sale to purchase a starter pack at this point since it’s just around the corner. Be seeing you all soon!
