Likewise with my Aquila since it's a loaner for the Carrack...but I do like the Connies since they were the first biggish ships besides the Tali to get added to SC a long time ago, there's just something about them I like besides the awesome engine sound even if they are a bit of a piñata for anything with guns and an attitude... As for the Taurus...Ci¬G of course have no incentive to finish it...just like reworking the Tali which still doesn't have working landing gear animations after 3 years.Against players who know what they are doing you'll most likely end up dead in a Connie, too easy to peel off the engine nacelles which deprives you of a quarter of your firepower in addition to the engine and possibly VTOL fans that attaches to the bottom nacelles. I would add landing gear as well if we look at the bottom nacelles, but they seem to magically spawn out of thin air when deployed on every ship that's been heavily damaged. The chin VTOL fans also gets blown off easily.
I want to like the Connie, the Taurus was my original pledge, but it keeps getting pushed back and now it has dropped off the roadmap completly. I wonder why, the Taurus is the most basic of the Connies. I exchanged it for a Retaliator Base, but after watching yesterdays stream, John Crewe killed what little hope I had for a rework of it, I should just turn it into a Prospector. My Aquila may turn into something alot better in 3.8.
I'd suggest a Max for the Tali rather than a Prospector since that's going nowhere fast either with repeatedly unfinished and broken mechanics every patch...or perhaps one of the Wardens. I melted my Tali bomber for a Harbinger a while back when I got bored with it never being finished.
