  • Star Citizen - Monthly Development Reports

     Wormtongue,
    Grima "Wormtongue",son of Galmod, was a liar and a traitor many times over.

    Care to explain the comparison ?



    Have fun


    PS:

    Fun fact ... the War of the Ring would have been lost without Grima.

    When Grima threw down the palantir from Orthanc, it caused Sauron to become aware that there was a hobbit with Aragorn. Sauron assumed it was the ringbearer and assumed that Aragorn was now in possession of the ring. Sauron put his focus on Aragorn and  attacked Minas Tirith. With Saurons attention focussed elsewhere, it made possible for Frodo and Sam to infiltrate Mordor and end the reign of Sauron forever.

    Without Grima the palantir would still be in the hands of Saruman, the unseeing eye would have been ever vigilant and the Ringbearer would have met an  grisly end on the plains of Mordor.

    Another fun fact:

    In one of the early Tolkien drafts, it was Grima and not Gollum that was captured and tortured to reveal the information about the Shire to the Nazgul. Saruman had ongoing tobacco delivery contracts with Bree and the Shire (Southfarthing).

    @Erillion ; Got a question for you bud.  Just curious.  What do you think is the lowest GPU/CPU combo to run the current alpha?  Are there significant differences from say a 970 to a 1070?
    Very hard to say as there are tenthousands of combinations of hardware, some that work well, some that are shitty.

    Some general trends:

    The machines at GamesCom were something like i7-5930k, 32GB of DDR4, GTX980Ti and a large PCIE SSD and Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 was running well. Compare your system against that.

    My recommendation:

    SSD size 256+ (this made a huge difference in performance in my case)
    At least 16 GB Ram
    a GPU that is good at double precision floating point operations (which is why i personally prefer Radeon over GeForce)
    http://www.geeks3d.com/20140305/amd-radeon-and-nvidia-geforce-fp32-fp64-gflops-table-computing/

    There are many discussion threads online about optimal and minimal Star Citizen hardware requirements.

    There is also a bottleneck with CIGs own server which limits the achievable performance on high end systems, no matter what hardware you have. They have an internal update rate which could be higher (and they are working on improving it). I saw quite a significant improvement there between Alpha 2.6 and 3.0

    "We are aiming for a AAA game experience. But depending on the funding levels reached, we may have to limit the experience for the initially released game version. Nonetheless, Chris Roberts and his teams have shown consistently that they are able to develop epic story-based games. Even with our very limited self-funding we have been able to do already a lot of work which is why we can show you not just concept art and a cinematic trailer, but an extensive demo of actual game play. So, we are confident that even with limited means we will be able to deliver an amazing experience."

    has been in the project description ever since the Kickstarter campaign started. You just keep ignoring it. Like so many other things.

    in what world does 170 million NOT deliver a AAA game experience? And the three 'limiteds' they use is hilarious. that was written before they had a single dime the fact they still keep it there for you to cite is a frigging joke too. And shows how shameless they are at milking people for everything they can get. 

    If they wanted full disclosure they could say "despite selling (fill in the amount currently 168 million) dollars worth of pixels we still dont have anything resembling a game, we do have a nice tech demo a nice store some nice scenery but nothing to do on any of it. you will be able to attain 15 FPS regardless of your computer hardware and if you use a ladder or a door youre going to either get stuck or die. But please keep buying this merchandise because (fill in the amount here) just inst quite enough to deliver a decent gaming experience let alone a AAA one."


    This text is unchanged since November 2012. Kickstarter money now amounts to around 1.2 % of the total collected crowdfunding money. They still keep it because THAT is what the original text was in 2012. The OTHER 167 million bucks did not come from Kickstarter.


    You asked for something. I provided you the information.

    You do not like it. You launch into another tirade.

    Rinse.  Repeat.

    Predictable.

    If Chris Roberts and Cig were to walk away from Star Citizen, It could almost end online gaming.
    A tiiiiiny bit of an exaggeration, don't you think ?   ;-)

    95 % of the online gamers worldwide probably have not even heard of Star Citizen.
