I had a vision today. Star Citizen is real. I've seen it and it's beautiful. And you can see that beauty yourself, if you choose to believe in Star Citizen. Believe in Star Citizen!

Diablo rifts/dungeons are a random combination of pre-designed pieces so that they fit together in different ways.

And yea, hyperbole aside, so long as there's something else to actually be the focus of the game it's probably OK, but invariably the stuff that actually hypes of procedurally generated XYZ is using that in place of actual content, and not as a background/suplement to it.

I can agree with that, make sure its fun before procedurally generating everything

This is your twatter right? You linked it earlier.



Which time were you lying, the time here when you said you hadn't spent anything, or the time on twitter when you said you had concierge ($1000 spent)?

Or are you an early backer who sold lots of LTI ships to suckers on the grey market, made all your money back and hence consider yourself in for $0 but actually still have a few hundred/thousand in ships/packages?

You see if you were really in for nothing you wouldn't care enough to register here and throw snippy comments in from the sidelines. If you want to defend CIG, go right ahead, nobody is stopping you, but grow a pair of balls and stop trying to fool people you don't care.

I started the launcher and saw there's a new version out. Also saw that you can buy some special guns with UEC spacebux or REC points. Do I want to buy these guns for my Hornet or are they poo poo? And what's the difference with UEC and REC?

uec is the currency you buy with real money right now. REC is what you get from playing the game.

procedural generation is a useful tool but so many people treat it as an end-to-end solution and slap a couple of passes of perlin noise on something then gently caress off down the pub, and that's why it's such a scorned buzzword. stop trying to make algorithms do your entire drat job for you

There's a guy on the RSI forums with almost the same twitter handle who appears to want to contribute towards suing Derek Smart.



At least Karl posting here is out far less money than that guy as he seems to be a "Space Marshall" which I seem to remember costs you a $5000 donation (you get some ships as a free thank you).

lol this isn't going to happen. Nothing major is going to happen with Star Citizen and the people against it, lets be honest here. The game will live or die entirely on its own. Probably die.

It is good and healthy to keep your expectations in check, except when it comes to Star Citizen's demise. It will be fireworks and magic and it will happen all at once, with a gigantic crater left in its wake.

Any time you see the words "Procedurally generated" you can just mentally sub in "Boring and really loving generic" and be completely right 99.99% of the time.

(I'm not actually certain of a procedurally generated system that results in cool and interesting stuff but I'm sure at least one must be out there somewhere).

I wanted to argue with this but I literally couldn't think of a single one. Closest is stuff like FTL but that's really just 'open the door and see which designed encounter you get'.

In all seriousness, if the rumors are true then Star Citizen has been sinking for most of 2015. So it's actually been a slow decline into finally getting that press release that Star Citizen has been canceled.
