I quoted a redditor, Derek Smart thought it was me being serious, then bought me a AV making it seem I was a SC Cultist, then realized it was a mistake and sent me a $5 coupon.

Lots of work on 2.0, they’re content complete, just bug fixing and polishing now.

[Land on a planet in 2.0?] If you try to land on a planet, first you get a message saying you’re entering the gravitational field, and if you continue for a while, you’ll eventually die.

The concept phase of the crucible is locked down, they’re working on what they need to show people when it goes up for sale. Ben and Sandi come up with a list of things: concept image, show it working with a capital ship, show it picking up a smaller ship, blueprints, what to include on the design post for repair, etc…
Should see the Crucible soon (concept art sale)

[Can friends visit each others hangars in 2.0?] No. That comes with persistence. (Note this feature was originally planned for 9 weeks after the August 2013 release of the Hangar module)

[890 jump for sale again?] Probably. ($600 concept art sale)

[Update on concierge ‘stuff’?] Yes. Alexis believes next week, possibly, they’ll start selling the special Concierge card. They’ll have those available for sale for a few weeks so everyone gets a chance to order one. Also talking about Concierge flair for 2016. (metal card sale)

There will be some new pre-order merchandise coming in November for the November livestream. (November sale)

In addition to the livestream in November, there’ll be one in December as well. December 16th, holiday livestream. (December sale, new sale)

[Can we buy / earn ships in 2.0?] No, not yet.
[Will 2.0 have currency?] yes-no (coy looks between Ben and Lando) (lol no, can't have you not buying ships with real money)

Not going to tell when 2.0 comes. It’ll be when it’s ready. And it’s not cause they know. They just don’t know yet. It could be 10 minutes from now, could be 3 weeks from now. It’s got to be in a position where it’s a value for the community to test it. Can’t rush.

they are against anything submitted being deleted by anyone no matter what the content is, but if you dare go against the circlejerk they will downvote you so hard nobody will see your comment

thats why even if SA dies I'm not going to end up on reddit

im not going to post somewhere where my posts get ignored because some people on the internet downvoted it

i do a good enough job getting ignored on my own i don't need my posts be lowered and hidden because enough people downvoted it

hey derek would you want to participate in goon projects like leading goons to build their very own star shitizen. With you leading goons to make a game. If you start a thread everyone would participate, Because it would be Derek Smart making a awesome game.

Or maybe you could participate in sagdcXI a game jam where you get 1 month of time to make a functional game. (next one is in december I think)
seriously everyone should check out the games that got made during the summer jam. http://www.awfuljams.com/sagdc-x/games most of these games are better than star citizen

I dunno man, the way these people are obsessed with SA and DS and with the money they have shown they are willing to part with :10bux: for this thread alone would be something they couldn't resist. Many of them couldn't not know what we are scheming daily. I'd give it a shot for a week (I doubt they could resist that much) and then bring it back to the public.

Just about any games with Goons is a fun experience, even when Goons ruin everything.

That's how I got into SA, in 2004 I was in the "pissed off at goons" side of the trench. The game was existed and was fun but a goon alliance found a bug and instead of reporting it to the creators so they would fix it they decided to ruin everything. Months of work down the drain just when it was about to pay off... But the goons seemed to be having a lot of fun before loving everything and then mocked us mercilessly after doing it.
