  • Characters will need to poop in Star Citizen....

    That's right, in the latest ATV they confirmed that having to go for a poop will be something your character needs to do, what bloody idiocy...


    Long term diseases etc, sounds like Murray when he was prattling on about creating every molecule for a planet's atmosphere. Someone needs to tell these idiots to shut their mouth and just make the damn game instead of fantasising about all the possible things they could put in if they had 100 years to spend on development.

  • Not All Stretch Goals to Be Included at Release

    ....is kind of deceitful when every time he goes on camera he says that everything will be possible if we continue "supporting" CIG.

    I like it.
    CR - "Yes we know we advertised that stretch goal at $68 million and that you funded us past that but if you want to see that stretch goal in the game post-release we need you to keep supporting us...Here are some new ships you can buy to ensure that happens!"

  • The Nine Voices Of The Star Citizen Debate.

    Quite an amusing chart from those awful, awful people at SA.

    My view of SC falls into the sceptic/agnostic bracket, where do you see yourself?

  • Do not give this project any more money.

    3.0 is meant to be containing a host of gameplay and yet Brian Chambers is saying they are just starting to put together a gameplay team (Feb 27) 17mins 5secs

    3.0 is meant to have the cargo system in place, yet Will Maiden (who is in charge of the cargo system) is saying they are still designing and prototyping it -

    The room system is an essential part of 3.0 but it is still under development by the LA team - "This will likely have a dependency on the 'room system' being developed in LA...."  https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/comment/7516129/#Comment_7516129

    If this stuff is nowhere near completion now how could Roberts realistically claim that it was going to be ready for last December.

  • Do not give this project any more money.

    Paying for the product only when it has been delivered is advice always worth repeating, especially in this age where companies employ all manner of tricks to get your money early.

  • Alpha 3.0 Production Schedule (updated 13th October)

    I think some of these hardcore fans are a little bit deranged tbh. Dropping $20,000 on somebody who was run out of the business 15+ years ago is not logical, no matter how you look at it.

    IF it even happens. People need to stop taking a dev mentioning something once as confirmed stuff that will happen, especially stuff that will be influenced if the community feedback is heavily against it.
    Oh Max, let them play.

    They want to make a multi page thread out of a 2 second offhand side note in a 40 minute video. Ignoring everything else. Not discussing any of the other gameplay issues presented. So be it.

    Have fun

    But fans making multi-page threads drooling, speculating, screenshotting and making gifs out of 2 second reveals for the latest $400 jpeg shown in a 40 minute video is all perfectly fine and how real Star Citizens should behave.....

  • Does Star Citizen deserve its hate?

    Well, when you promise the world and claim that more money will allow you to do more and do it faster but then take years upon years to just do the basics it's not surprising people look at the project and the people that defend it with a sceptical view.

    The thing with Star Citizen is that it has all the right ingrediants to get trolled day in day out. It's got the company that talks a monumental amount of bullshit, it's got fans who buy into and drop stupid amounts of money on that bullshit, it's got the whole tribal thing going on which is endorsed by the CEO himself. It's easy pickings for people to troll or even just to poke fun at.

    If you are so happy about the game, its content and the direction it's headed why worry yourself with what other people say?
  • 3.0 Spoilers From An Evocati

    Chris and Erin have both said they want thousands, if not hundreds of thousands in one instance. They honestly believe that their as-yet undeveloped server mesh will be able to do what no one else has done at a graphical quality higher than all other MMOs.

    Here's Erin's quote from earlier this year:
    So with the next big release a lot of the underlying game is there and then we can look at transferring people between servers so we can have hundreds of thousands of people maybe in one instance, but that doesn’t come online until later.


    These guys are living in cuckoo land.

  • 3.0 Spoilers From An Evocati

    I don't know how many times CIG have to explain that the server can't provide better performance for the clients until they implement the new netcode they've been working on for a very long time.

    Originally, most of that was supposed to be in 3.0 - but it was postponed for 3.1 I believe.

    Meaning, even if there's going to be SOME performance improvement in 3.0 (LIVE version) - it won't be until 3.1 that we're going to see how the planned netcode integration will improve the performance.

    Also, it won't be until they have a solid frame-rate that they expand the player count.

    This, too, has been made public several times - and yet it seems the detractors are still conveniently forgetting and pretending that this early Evocati build is, somehow, representative of the best CIG can do.

    It's the same old bullshit ;)

    Perhaps that's because at the moment it really is the best they can do. Until they deliver these magical changes one can only judge on what is currently available, who knows how much the networking changes allegedly coming in 3.1 will affect things?

    Network performance has meant to be getting better for years, it shouldn't come as any surprise that people are a bit jaded by now.


    As an aside, I was very surprised to read they haven't even started on their server mesh technology, instead they are focusing on the single server performance and optimisation (lol).
