The Hangar Module is a standalone release that reveals where players will store their ships and collected items. Keep in mind that this is a very early pre-alpha release. Much of what you see and experience will change as the game continues to be developed.
To access the Hangar Module one will need an RSI account and a pledge package which includes a ship, some credits and access to the full game.
Access to the Hangar requires a package that includes game access. If you only have an add-on ship and not a package with game access, you would not be eligible to access the Hangar.
Alpha access is not required for access to the Hangar however alpha access will be required for access to early versions of the dog fighting module which is scheduled as a later release.
The minimum package requirement would be the Aurora MR package. It can be purchased in the store for $45. Note that alpha access to the dog fighting module is not included in that particular package.
The Hangar will be loaded through the launcher. You can find the launcher download on the following link: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/download
The hangar comes in four variants : SelfLand is the base hangar, then Aeroview, Revel & York and finally the Asteroid VFG Industrial hangar.
Yes the option to upgrade your hangar is available in the store.
The ability to invite friends to your hangar will not be available for the first release.
Your hangar comes with 5 bays that can each display up to 3 small ships, or 1 medium or large ship. Except for the Asteroid VFG Hangar, whose central bay can only display 1 small or medium ship instead.
Prior to the official game release, if you lose or gift a ship your hangar may reduce in size. Purchasing an upgrade will lock your hangar to at least the size of the purchased upgrade.
