High End graphic in a game that will be designed as a MMO.Kefo said:
I don't know but when SC does something that's never been done before then you let me know.
I am interested also, this would bring us to 1997, CR just started with Digital Anvil.You can wait as long as you want, you don't get an answer until you ask politely. And since you already blew that chance then it's too late. Maybe you'll see I comment on this another time in another thread.
That means if they fail (and all signs are good for that case) nobody ever nor in the present neither in the future can realise this kind of game .. that's sad especially because the first team who tried (CIG) did it so badlyErillion said:Got my paper copy of the magazine and article. Very impressive.
It is rare that gaming journalists with many years of experience have that positive :-O factor when they visit a studio.
I take away from that article especially that everyone in the team (in that case: Foundry 42 Frankfurt) is dedicated, concentrated and highly talented. And that the journalists got the impression that if anyone can make this idea a reality ... this team can.
This magic 10to1 thing again excuse for everything that is wrong with economics but always without any further explanation how this will work out.I don't think they've decided yet because it's a balancing issue. They have to see how things go with the economy during testing first. CIG have said though that since NPCs handle most of the economy in a 10-1 NPC-player precence, players won't have much influence on the overall economy, except in local places (one star system or a single planet) and temporarily until the balance is restored again.Cotic said:[...] it has been said once or twice that a regular player could typically afford to buy a Constellation after earning credits for about 60 hours of gameplay. Obviously this can change with balancing so don't take it as written in stone.
A Constellation costing 300,000 UEC today might cost 3,000,000 UEC at launch.
What I want to know is how long do they anticipate it would take to earn 3 million UEC.
I'd expect the final economic system will be considered fair by most players.
In this case Coutts defined explizit that this is not a partnership so it's against the contract to call it a partnership.MaxBacon said:Turrican187 said:I own a Company ... we make games
But lying to your customers on easy verifiable facts is never a good move!It's not a partnership in the legal sense, and it's also no lie. You can use the partnership word without implying a legal but yet one informal context. That means, a bank and a company making business.
Or Amazon and CIG in the case of Lumberyard. I know in our company they call everything partnerships, even though it's just making business with another company.
