Quad-Wing Equus Auctions
Auctions for the special-edition Quad-Wing Equus spacecraft have now begun. The listings can be found under the Global Auction section, with a start bid of 50000 PED. Start and end times for the 25 auction listings will be staggered at various hours of the day and over a period of three weeks so that interested parties from all time zones can participate.
Upon completion of each Quad-Wing Equus auction, the winning bidder will receive a special NanoWarp I device that provides warp capability for Equus-class ships, along with a Space Thruster device that allows for atmospheric entries and departures. Both the NanoWarp I and Space Thruster devices are repairable.
The Quad-Wing Equus luxury spacecraft sacrifices cargo space in exchange for rapid transport capability, and thus has lower cargo capacity than other Quad-Wing ships (10 items / 40kg). Also, the top speed of the Equus degrades if the total carried weight (cargo + cockpit) exceeds 100kg, while warp capability becomes disabled once the total carried weight exceeds 150kg.
