    That is simulated "interstellar clouds", not cloud computing tech.

    And the countdown to 200 M$ crowdfunding is ticking down quite fast.


    Have fun

    yup keep highlighting the money they have (allegedly) raised because its really the only positive spin people can put on this project. 85% of your fanboy comments have some sort of mention of the money they have been given (allegedly) but not much in the way of how well its being spent. Beyond an occasional 'they employ a lot of people' comment. Which is great for those people but not so great for people expecting the release of a game sometime soon.

    There is no incentive to work on the game as hard as they do on new ships to sell. This is why I have lost faith in this project.

    Yeah that's why they dedicated this ATV segment to ships, ah wait it was cloud tech  :D



    Just look at all that low effort put into things that aren't ships...

    You cannot imagine why a community of crowdfunding backers is proud to be about to reach a never before achieved world record in crowdfunding (any genre, not only games) ?

    You cannot imagine that - despite all your concerns w.r.t. the project - there may be a reason (or two) why so many people over such a  long time supported a project so much that this goal can be reached ?

    A LOT of other things have been highlighted by the backers. Even THIS homepage is full with it. The thread about crowdfunding milestones is just one of hundreds in the SC sub-forum. There are tenthousands of SC videos worldwide. Millions of forum entries worldwide. Hundredthousands of SC pictures. A selection of them have been posted by fans here in the SC sub-forum.

    The video shown by the OP highlights ANOTHER aspect of Star Citizen. A technical aspect. For some it may be a minor aspect, of little concern to the overall project. But for many backers this attention to detail is one of the reasons why they support this project.


    Have fun

    Except there is a game in heavy development because of funds raised. Money is based on ships sale till release... What a surprise, a Scace game having many ships. Chocking :)

    The greatest irony to all this is they wouldnt have had to (allegedly) break a milestone like this had they released a game 3 or 4 years ago when they claimed they would. As it is thyre likely apt to (need to) (allegedly) raise twice or more what they already have to release anything.

    So when youre crowing about 500 million crowd funding in 2022 and SQ 42 still isnt out and theyre on tech demo version 6.1650978693 what then? Still going to keep up with the 'its ready when its ready and it will cost what it costs?' nonsense?

    Of course by then all this 'groundbreaking' technological advancements will be older than what mobile games will be offering by then....

    I think my only question for this Science Fiction Magnum opus is that when this Symphony might actually be finished. This is in no way a slight on the endeavors or machinations of the team and dream behind it all, but a poll on when seriously it will be ready to play would be fantastic and then we can all enjoy the spawning of the many Youtube channels with expert play analysis and opinions regarding the lore and dance toward future expansions and future races.

    I was born in 1970 and would also love to know how old Erillion is .... I am also a Leo so I totally understand the Eril the Lion thing ... but if there is a chap that deserves a Victoria Cross for intellectual perseverance without displaying even a minor shadow of doubt, a hint of raised eyebrow or negative of question .... it is he. This is also not a criticism but tongue in cheek flattery and also so very very true.

    Erillion is a Paladin who serves a mad king.....

    Sorta like being an architectural supervisor for King Ludwig.

    We were joking about release in 2020, i hope for their brainwashed backers, they at least get to beta. ..

    Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

    They are going to proudly show off the title "longest mmorpg in development title" which they will receive pretty soon.

    So much obfuscation.... scope change mid-2014 with backers approval and supported consistently by around +30M$ per year. Why asking for 2014 release when it is not anymore true since ... 2014? :) And this '500M$ in 2022.
    Haters hate and you are not the smartest one by far :)

    Not either in SC. Starter package is same or lower than NMS and you do not need to spend an extra dollar.
    NMW is discounted from time to time, as low as 20$... Despite being a space game player (ED and SC early backer) I don't plan to ever buy NMS... because gameplay and overall game look. Fine if you find your precious, enjoy it no problem. SC may interest you when at Beta or release. There is no winner just different games for different players.

    Backer approval didn't mean squat, and everyone knows it.   Scope change in 2014.  2015. 2016. Etc.   See the pattern?

    All hail the mad emperor and his wonderful new clothes....

    I will say this Mrmoon (a fairly large streamer) was talking about Star Citizen Yesterday. I have an idea some people got to him at Twitchcon and offered to pay him to do some things with SC.

    Wouldnt be the first time he sold out to a bunch of trash. He was a DayZ drone for a couple years, who knows how much they paid him to play that garbage every night and sit on panels at conventions talking about how great it was. Miscreated as well. He still has a hand in that one from time to time (I suspect only when the checks clear). Of course Reign of Kings might be the worst and most obvious one. They even did a 'special' event type thing a few months ago and he basically trashed everyone and everything about the game going out the door.

    But I suspect they want him because he is very good at editing and making shit look good with production value. Then he will post it on Youtube. But I have watched him for years and other than the typical "yeah star citizen sounds like a big deal" when asked about it in chat he hasnt said anything baout it. Then yesterday during an 8 hour stream he mentioned it a half dozen times at least and said they were going to do 'some things' with it and it looked 'good'.

    So all the fanboys have that to look forward to. He will certainly make it looks its best. Whether he plays it or not or has any other commentary about it remains to be seen. But he will certainly make a lot of production videos for them and some of them will more than likely be used as propaganda and 'live gameplay' videos in the future. But if he does play and his viewers dont abandon him that will make the viewership on twitch go from a few hundred to a few thousand.

    I do not know this guy and really, you may have something against him, fine but facts are that hundreds video done by Evocati and testers are available. Anyone can also test this project several time per year for free.
    There are fanboys like in any single human project but don't pretend that +700.000 are all brainless individual as well as those new backers joining by thousands every single months.

    Don't like true Alpha? Fine. Wait until release.
