  • Star Citizen PC Gaming Show Trailer

    This is pretty much one updated trailer for SC (it's not 3.2 trailer that's PC Gamer's titling)

    Star Citizen Leaks - Mining Gameplay

    Prospecting for Deposits: To scan for deposits, use the "ping" mechanic. Enter the ship's scanning mode (TAB) then hold and release RMB to scan. Any minable deposits will appear highlighted with a UI targeting bracket around them. Note: A ping will also temporarily increase passive radar detection range.

    Scanning Deposits: Enter mining mode (RCTRL + TAB) and aim the mining reticle at the rock you wish to scan/mine. Your ship will automatically begin the scanning process and revea/ the contents of the rock.

    Fracturing: Use LMB to activate the ship's mining laser. Keep the 'Rock Energy Level" inside the optimal window (green) by adjusting the 'Laser Throttle" using the mouse wheel. Once the 'Rock Energy Level" is inside the optimal window the 'Fracturing Sensor" bar will begin to increase and once at 100% the rock will break apart into smaller chunks. Chunks that can be further shattered/mined will highlight orange when targeted whereas chunks that are now extractable will highlight purple.

    When the "Rock Energy Leve/" bar exceeds the optimal window and goes into the red, the "Overcharge Sensor" bar will begin to increase. If the "Overcharge Sensor" bar goes to 100%, the rock will explode violently damaging the player's ship and destroying all extractable material.

    Extracting Ore: To extract ore from the purple highlighted bits of rock, switch from 'Fracture Mode" to 'Extraction Mode" using RMB, then using LMB to activate the extraction tractor beam. The "Cargo Capacity" bar will begin to increase as the ore is extracted to the ship's cargo.

    Selling Ore: Ore can be sold at GrimHex, Levski, and Port Olisar at specific kiosks located near the Admire Clerk desks. Interact with these kiosks (F), select the Prospector from the top left ship drop down menu then select "Sell to Refinery"


    @Octagon7711 if early mining mechanics are already in this initial build then it's to be expected yes, I'm also wanting to check out FPS AI and see how missions now flow with more combat variants aside of just dogfighting.

  • Valve policy change: All games allowed on Steam

    Valve greed took over any quality assurance of what's in their store, let the flood of useless games, it goes beyond than just allowing sex games, but any type of cheap browser flash port to sell on the store, or the classic mobile "energy" games that are ported to PC will take over the store.

    Valve gets hit with a massive drama because one "school shooting simulator" game appears on the store, and decides to just drop any quality standards altogether.

    It's too hard to remove controversial games from Steam so let's just not deal with it and let our profit cuts roll in. meh


    Well, good news for other gaming store platforms, Twitch/Amazon with their push on a gaming shop platform competing with steam should really take advantage of Valve derps to give them some needed proper competition by providing a platform that requires more from the games that are added to its library.

    I  would, I need some rich friends I can sponge from.

    True.

    I had a friend that just sees a videogame and SPENDS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLY can, he got the max package for SC then, the 15k, he spent even more on World of Tanks, he is just unstoppable with money spending on games.

    The moment he buys a 1.5k bundle on an online game time ago and he got bored after playing a few days I just poker'face. 

    I even tried to talk him out of why even spending 15k out of sudden he got offended (consider he had not even played before he bought that lol) , there are quite a few people out there like that, they have the money and they don't really think twice.

    Hence why the offer exists.

    AND I don't complain because when my PC broke down he gave me 700$ to buy a new one :D
