  • Redemp said:   I don't see a difference, sure the "scheme" is different but it boils down to the same thing. Pubs will push milestones and fight bloat, while tacking on extra's like day one DLC, Lootboxes, gated content. The product typically ship…
  • Talonsin said: Maybe you will care when they blow up your tiny $35 ship and your cargo you worked all morning for. You'll not be flying ships around without insurance; if anything pirates who steal other player's ships will have a real hard…
  • The big "save us from publishers" here is simply: - A Publisher would sell an 850$ ship for the sake of profit. - SC sells an 850$ ship to continue to fund their operations on the game dev. Money goes back into the game dev, instead of it being co…
  • Kefo said: It's ridiculous because it's crowdfunded? I see plenty of crowdfunded games out there, past and present, who made due with what they raised and then built upon the game they released to the public with sales they earned. Not this selling…
  • Kefo said: Except big publishers get shit on as well so it's not double standards. Big publishers tend to actually realease games first though and then push the crappy revenue models. CIG being true to form is doing it backwards again and pushing…
  • So a supposed civilian capital ship meant to introduce a new profession, that's a first as they are all combat-based. It's mostly guilds who pledge for capitals anyway, if mine does, cool beans. Cotic said: No wonder companies try to get away with…
  • On another Q&A: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IVkHKvgv-u-yIQXD3rReqm7r3y83S-h8u3vhuPTAQ44/edit Can you flip a wheeled Vehicle? Not sure if you can do it intentionally and on-demand as a stunt. I’ve seen it happen as a bug where they ended up…
  • Started in 2014 and using UE3 instead of UE4? wat
  • DKLond said: I guess you just want to argue about nothing, then. What I am telling is that they are not blindly going for the best visuals, the balance is the cheapest way they can achieve the best visuals, and techniques that allow such.…
  • DKLond said: They're going for the best visuals regardless. But, I don't really see the point of arguing about something we can't know. I'm just saying what I'm, personally, convinced will be the case. Again, fortunately, all we have to do is w…
  • DKLond said: It will cost more all-round. But displaying large capital ships and dozens of detailed entities in close proximity WILL tax your GPU a hell of a lot more than now. Obviously, you can just lower the settings - but it's a deliberate d…
  • Talonsin said: I understand game developers are working and need to make money but at what point are the drivers for the company (the investors and CEO) getting greedy? Activision - NET Revenue last year over 3 billion EA - NET revenue last yea…
  • DMKano said: So chances are EA saw that the game was a stinker too and pulled the plug. That's not the criteria really, the word is: profitable. Even though good games if they don't justify the money they require to create in their eyes, the…
  • Make and tax games with any sort of RNG paid loot as they tax Casinos! Do it! Save Gaming! \o/
  • Turrican187 said: So you want to enable good ole ECS Docker Daemon as long as there are max 1000 players on your server cloud to monitor memory leaks but you disable it when more players are logging into your system because all memory leaks are s…
  • Turrican187 said: Can anybody of the experts explain to me please what this "Debug Mode" that is eating away many FPS is doing? And why is it only in the build of the first evocati test group but not in the other Alpha test groups? Server…
  • rpmcmurphy said: Well DU are designing the game with the networking technology right from the start instead of building it around single server stuff and then trying to expand it into large mesh servers. That's because DU already did the s…
  • DKLond said: Yeah, the game with a tiny handful of players and no capital ships to speak of - and 90% of the features missing can perform reasonably well right now in Arena Commander. I'm talking about the game as it's planned - and how hardware…
  • DKLond said: While they will optimise it - I certainly wouldn't expect the release version to perform well on a GTX 970. I disagree. The GTX 970 already performs over +40FPS in max settings on SC, this without the game being optimized y…
  • rpmcmurphy said: These guys are living in cuckoo land. Are they? Look at what Dual Universe is doing with theirs. Hm Shodanas said: Reading about how a GTX 980 struggles with 3.0, debug mode or not, makes me quite pessimistic about my GT…
