    $30k every month is enough for them to keep maybe 3 people employed. Every little bit helps, but 3 people more or less isn't going to make any large difference.


    You've used wrong unit of currency in your post. On their website the money is in dollars, not in pounds.

    You DO know that solar panels on the dark side of the moon are fully functional, do you not? 

    Just because WE cannot see that side does not stop the sun shining on it most of the time ;-) 

    Have fun
    Yes, they literally work...half the time? Was I being too generous? :-)
    They DO work all the time.

    If the sun does not shine, they get a lot of reflected light from Earth.

    You can also place them in a crater near the pole on the dark side. 100 % illumination.

    Like SQ42 ... do it the smart way ... and it works. 100 % of the time. At optimal performance. Even if it takes some time to get there. Like the solar panels on the lunar poles on the rim of a dark side crater.
    Moon's rotation around its own axis and rotation around Earth both take same amount of time, and as a result same side of the Moon is always visible from Earth.

    Which means Dark side of the Moon is never visible from Earth and never gets any light reflected from Earth either.

    In many ways it's a surprisingly reserved statement about Squadron 42.

    Where does this put the release date?
    I understand it will be announced in December

    --> "....and share our roadmap for its completion."

    Yes, quite a reserved statement. That is why I think this sounds more like Erin Roberts, not Chris Roberts. Has a factual, realistic undertone, less of an exuberant tone.

    Have fun
    I doubt they'll provide a target delivery date in December.

    Sharing the roadmap to completion sounds more like a list of outstanding features and tasks and the order they'll be worked on.

    Perhaps I've been jaded by CUs endless map to beta with no actual dates.

    I guess we'll find out soon. 
    Even if they would share some estimated date, it would mean nothing.

    They've got a long history of making estimates like Star Citizen release in 2014, first episode of Squadron 42 release in 2015, Star Citizen release in 2016, Alpha 3.0 release in 2016, etc. At this point an estimation from them isn't worth anything.

    If they'd provide a firm release date instead of estimate it would be different, but if they were going to do something like that then I think they'd try everything in their power to make it main feature of CitizenCon. Roadmap is just fancy word for yet another plan.

    Nothing to talk you out of. This game isnt even out. There is almost no content. Dotn bother 

    I know.  But I'm wondering (probably along with everyone else, especially the backers) when there will actually be a game to test.
    There is a kind of a game to test right now, but if you want to have a lot of content then more than a year.

    Look for other games to play and forget Star Citizen for a year or two.
