Crates

Recommended Posts

Been a long time fan of the Battlecruiser series since Millenium. Got into UC and played it too death and haven't thought about it since. Well, I just happened to find this site again, and pulled up my old account and noticed there are new games in the UC series. I ordered one from Walmart.com and got it the next day. It's nice to be back into the game again.

So my question...I have not seen a single crate drop in my roam games in UC:CE. I used to love popping ships and getting a crate, and the excitement of getting to a good drop before the competition did. It was also the best way to make money. I cannot find any info of this subject, and am wondering if this is something that was changed since the first UC game?

I hope not, looting dead ships was my favorite thing to do. Maybe less of these crates drop, but whatever it is haven't seen a single on in about 5 hours of game time.

Thank you for your time.

Nothing in this regard has changed in the game since the original UC. The dropping of cargo pods has always been randomized.

Thank you sir for the personal response. I will continue on my way then. Good to know they were not removed for some reason.

Have a great Christmas Holdiday SC.

Crates are great for making money, especially at a critical time. I had one campaign where I was out of parts, out of fuel, miners were only 2% filled and pretty much in a situation. Luckily some enemy cap ships appeared and I was able to get a couple crates. Imagine how glad I was when one of them carried an STO! Millions of creds in value... it saved my career!

Yeppers crates still drop!
