Set it up for its first flight and discovered that with its limited space but huge weight that it is completely worthless. Even with weight fully upgraded. Sad face. --- -Insert witty signature here:

Completely agree. I've got enough parts for 3 starships - lost all excitement in the game; it could have used a lot more testing...
are we all being forced to play an alpha release?
The 1.0.4 update is undergoing Apple approval as we speak; just not sure if their current to do list covers such fundamentals as 'gameplay mechanics'. --- Hope to see you on the other side of the mountain PSN: C_McButterpants

Don't completely write the starship off.
Yes, it technically loses gold per flight, but if you use it as a fast "buck" transport, the returns on the dollar are more than you're losing

Actually looked into that. If you convert those bucks to dollars in a starship flight from Paris to Los Angelos you only gain about 2.5 thousand. Now think how long you're going to be waiting for two passengers and a cargo worth bux. Not really worth taking up a plane slot. --- -Insert witty signature here:

Believe me I want to like it but when I have to spend 66bux to upgrade the weight to even get those results it's sad. The starship is gimped. --- -Insert witty signature here:

=( i still have high hopes for starship.... i'm saving up my bucks for a huge cashout and currently have 1400

I certainly hope they buff it so it can make some semblance of profit... --- "helo tc, u remembr me? ^_^" Civilization Revolution FC: 3007-9820-9287

Wow, this thing is terrible. I loaded up a full starship at Los Angeles, headed to Paris, and it STILL would've cost me over 2,000c!! No gain whatsoever. What a piece of junk! --- http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b313/i_am_waffles/creeperfet.gif Dad I'm in space. I'm proud of you son! Dad are you space? Yes. Now we are a family again.
