Notice ARX and Frontier Points Conversion

The cheapest paint jobs (620 Arx) cost between 28p and 37p depending on which Arx pack you buy them with.

400 Arx is worth 24p if you're comparing it to the 5000 Arx pack or 18p if you're comparing it to the 100,000 Arx pack.

There is between 1672 and 2223 Arx per £. Or between 16.7 and 22.2 Arx per penny. Or between 4p and 6p per 100 Arx.

 
Currently the cheapest packs are 50p which equates to about 100ARX. Can't see there being 4 free paint jobs a week :unsure:
How on Earth (or anywhere else in the galaxy) do you get these figures?
50p is nowhere near 100ARX, and paint jobs start at 620 Arx, which is not 50p either.
The cheapest purchase is a basic decal, which costs 50Arx, and that is between 2p and 3p, depending on how you buy your Arx.
 
But you still have to buy 5000 Arx to get a 50 arx decal.

Not from me. A fool and his money are soon parted, and I'm not a fool.
I presume someone's already responded to this by now, but just in case I'm wrong...

You'd be able to EARN your 50 ARX for a decal IN-GAME, by performing some regular actions - trading/hauling, destroying (wanted) ships, missions..

If there's a weekly cap of 400 ARX, it might be logical to guesstimate that 50 ARX ought to be reasonably earn-able within 1-2 days' play sessions (presuming maybe couple hours each, but maybe not even that long).

You'd not have to be any kind of "fool" as you'd "part with" no money (beyond what you've already paid for the game). :)
 
Your missing the point. I'm discussing the purchasing method. Earning them in game is another matter.
Ok, so @StuartGT had already replied to you about the 50Arx.

Re "the purchasing method", consider that there's no real point for having much smaller "bundles" as most on-going / continuous players would more than likely earn the 400 weekly cap anyway, thru regular basic play (eg 1hr/day, I'd assume is reasonable) and probably all month, so 1600Arx/mo "easy".

Granted, that takes Time... (and 5,000Arx would be.. over 3mo?)

But any reasonable person would understand that "Convenience Costs" -- purchasable pre-determined "packs" of ARX are offered as a convenience, for those who'd be content to spend a few dollars / quid (etc), or more, in order to pick up certain items "now", rather than having to put extra time into the game to "earn" the ARX.

Also, as Stuart rightly pointed out, you're not forced to buy any - they are 100% optional.

Plus, being only for "cosmetic" items, is no kind of pay-wall. (Just sayin; ie no game-impacting gain/advantage from buying, & no loss/handicap from not buying Arx.)

Finally, the bonus extra ARX received, for buying larger packs, are increasingly significant; also logical and, even, fair.

So I fail, therefore, to see what point - if any, to be fair - you tried to make re "the purchasing method".
o_O

..and I actually took a lil time to try to come up w "reasonable reasons" anyone might have any real beef with the ARX system's "purchasing method"...

Happy to be enlightened, if you'd care to share your reasoning..? :)
 
Earning ARX is a canny move by FDev, gives me a reason to be in game until the next update and I was a bit short for the stringlights so bought a few more to get them, never would have bothered before.

I find that very interesting..
If only because, if you were only "a bit short", why did you Buy instead of Play-Earn..? 🤔

Maybe it's just me.. 😂

Clarifying:
"bought a few more" - min (& worst-value, comparatively) purchase is 5,000 Arx...

String lights are 6,570 Arx.

Presuming, for example, "a bit short" is 500 or less.
A bit over 1 week's playtime? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Curious, then, just how short were you? 😁

Agreed - I know that FDev has taken some heat for ARX, but the simple fact is that they are rewarding players for playing their game with things you previously had to pay real money for. This seems, well, pretty good? Something for nothing and your kicks for free, as Dire Straits so very nearly said. <shrugs>

Dire Straits... 😍👍🏼


("Frontier Arx for nothin' and your (ship) kits for free..") 😜
 
I couldn't figure out a real difference :rolleyes:, so I just picked one :cool:
Re "a real difference":

Approx half the outfit sets are "semi-scruffy" and have ripped-looking sleeve-cuffs. 🤔

Some sets have "calf" boots, and some have "full length" (ie up to just below the knee) boots. 😎

Most are colour-coordinated top-to-bottom (as would be sensible), but not all coordinate well with the various RemLok compression flightsuit colours (what you call "Underwear", 😜👍🏼 which - given the "outfit" options - is sensible enough), esp at the neck/chest where this would be most noticeable, esp. in Content Creator videos. (That is, outside of your own interior cam views during play.)
Next would be flightsuit gloves vs outfit sleeve-cuffs colours.. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I do note, however, that Outfit tops can be worn without sleeves (i.e. In a 'vest' style), allowing (flightsuit) sleeves' colour(s) to also be seen (as well as shoulder-badge Elite Ranking). 😎👍🏼
 
I do not share personal pictures ;)
That's OK, I'd not ask for one.

Which outfit set did you pick/buy, in the end? 😊
(Just its name will do, no pix needed! So nobody gets unnecessarily "embarrassed" or anything if they play with an avatar which is opposite of their biologically-assigned gender*.. I have 1 F & 1 M account.. No big deal. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♂️)
