    Instead of making a new thread just updated this one. Year of 2018 ended up being the best ever for Star Citizen, not counting with the external 46 Million funding gotten by the Billionaire extraordinaire there's no doubt that Star Citizen development will keep going stronger and stronger each and every year!

    Congrats Citizens! Cya in the Verse! :)

    Pure gold, tell Chris I'll let him know what account to send my 10% cut to.

    Awesome, there really appears to be no end in sight, either to the amount of crowd funding these titles can raise or an actual release date.

    Will be interesting to see where things stand in December 2019.

     :D 

    Still going strong it seems B)



    2019 already is the best funding year to date with still a month to go.

    I guess actually having a...game.. for people to play that and not needing a computer so expensive that selling your organs is the only viable path.. that helps...

    Actually playing the Alpha version of the game for years now and having a computer in the medium class range (with an SSD) and not having to sell my organs yet has proven to be quite viable.

    But some need help ... in many different ways ... i agree


    Have fun


    PS:

    "Medium" range ... see here ...

    It's like someone building a car factory. They've raised huge amounts of money each year, and seem to think that raising money is the end goal.

    No cars have been produced for sale yet, in over 7 years.

    This is where you are wrong.  People are playing and enjoying Star Citizen Alpha,
    in up to 90 flyable/usable ships and vehicles. Every day.


    Have fun

    Not that he HAS any yacht at all to our knowledge.

    Unless you are referring to a picture in circulation where one can see "The Headguy" in what looks like a 9 m rented Mexican boat.


    Have fun

    As I said, no cars have been produced for sale. You cannot buy SC now. You can only donate to the building of the factory. On their web site, they make it clear that you are not buying anything, you are donating without a guarantee of receiving anything.

    It is true that you can test drive some prototypes now, but nobody can buy anything.

    I'm thinking they should ask Marshmelloe or other hipster performers to do an in game concert.

    Or maybe emulate Activision Blizzard and sell tickets for even more. (Have to fund the A-B salaries somehow of course, especially the Cs - $60M a year is it for CEO? - good job there are shareholders to keep the salaries in check.)
