How is this thing ever going to run on a console when it regularly brings state of the art PCs to their knees. Or are we talking about a PS5 / XBONE2 release?

Surely, since they are poised to save PC gaming from dumbed-down console ports and adaptations, they will not just dial back the “fidelity” of the whole thing to more sensible levels (and redesign everything from scratch for the 18th time). Surely.

( They will. Just before the money runs out — that way, consoles are to blame too.)

It'd still have a wonky framerate and freaky culling issues as a pre-rendered video, let's be honest here.

Nice. I'm thinking docking sequences should be set to "Blue Danube Waltz for 12 Airhorns."

I've discovered there's a whole subreddit devoted to Air Horn remixes of songs.

I was hoping for Also sprach Zarathustra on Air Horns but Sound of Silence on Air Horns is pretty good.

I think Jerry would be a great choice for this role and he could basically just riff on funny everyday stuff that happens in the 'verse

Kerzic and Eldragon bring up the uncomfortable point that many of the features croberts has promised can't possibly coexist in the same game.

When you look at todays MMOs, they sacrifice alot of "content" to make them static, less dynamic, i wouldent say other deveolpers are "idiots", i say they sacrifice development to dummify and mainstream MMOs, into something that is created in the name of profit... When CR started this enterprice he been fairly clear of what he wish to do, a alive and immersive universe, to put more focus in making the SC alive rather then just a game... And its nothing impossible about that, its just you cant have the bland MMO you want, couse thats not what CR is making... and that bland MMO, is not what CR has got the backers money or vote to make... your trying to force your will onto a project you cant know will work or not... if you dont like what CR is making there are plenty of traditional MMOs out there... let CR make the inovative dream of his !

How to: Get More Star Citizen Referrals

quote:

Star Citizen Referrals are a touchy subject. The rewards are great but the Star Citizen community, as a whole, is seemingly against sharing them and rightfully so.

When the Star Citizen Referral program was released, everyone was posting their referral codes everywhere. The Star Citizen player communities were full of them. And that is the problem.. the Star Citizen player communities were full of them.

People were posting their referral codes in communities of people that ALREADY had the game. That’s like asking a person who is walking out of a store with a new coffee maker if he or she wants to buy a new coffee maker…

There are some great programs out there for Star Citizen Referral codes. Reddit has a great tool that allows players to submit their Star Citizen Referral code into a database and when someone decides they are ready to pull the trigger on Star Citizen the database will spit out a random referral code for them to use. It really cut down on spam in the player communities.

The problem with the Reddit code generator is scope. It’s a 100% passive program that you put your code into and just sit and wait. After you put your code in, there is nothing else you can do but wait and see what happens.

Star Citizen ReferralSo, we here at The Lone Gamers decided to push the envelope a bit. We came up with the The Lone Gamers Star Citizen Referral Program. It’s pretty simple.

Basically you send us traffic and we send you referrals. This site has a TON of great Star Citizen content that is easily searchable – it sells the game for you. There are no gimmicks, no face full of advertising… nothing like that. It’s as simple as sharing a link to OUR page, the potential recruit reads our page and clicks YOUR referral link on OUR page. We get some traffic and exposure, you get referrals. A fair deal.

I’ve had a few players send me emails, instant messages, and hop on Teamspeak to thank me for the referrals they are getting. We had one, “VileHarvester” comment on the site and claim 3 referrals in 24 hours. While there are no metrics to say for sure if the referrals came from using our referral program, I’m pretty sure it helped them all.

Maximizing Star Citizen Referrals
But this program isn’t just for the people that want to share their link once and forget about it like so many others do. This is for the go-getters. Those that actually and whole heartedly believe in Star Citizen. Those that want their friends to play the game with them. Those that want to spread the word of Star Citizen.

We designed it around recruiting from non-Star Citizen communities. Use it to recruit from your social circle (Facebook is great) or from OTHER game communities… your Battlefield clan perhaps. Our referral program is a one shot, one kill system. We set you up for success with outstanding content, now set yourself up for success by actively recruiting for Star Citizen with our site. We built it for YOU… the Star Citizen enthusiast.

So why don’t you stop waiting on hopes and dreams of dropping your referral codes off in random spots around the web and check out our Star Citizen Referral Program.

This prick knows the square route of gently caress all. Like most of them that step in and talk oh so knowledgeably.
In 2017 people will get the first bit of SQ42 which will involve some very basic scripted missions and a poo poo load of eye wateringly bad custcene.
The console version will run parallel but come out much later. Pretty much everything that Chris has promised will never come out and now they are creating more and more online shows etc to drip feed this out.

This is a really important thing to emphasize, and frankly I have to commend Sandi (after all she's the marketing genius behind everything) for finding a way to use CIG's definition of "open development" to actually obfuscate information. Right now we've had CIG either confirm or imply that three features from the Kickstarter will not be at release. All of them were released over different media, and it's only because this community is so obsessed that people can keep track of it all:

- The removal of drop-in drop-out co-op from Squadron 42 was revealed during Reverse the 'Verse, and even though the Twitch video has since been deleted we still have articles on it.
- Dropping private servers came from Jared in an interview with INN.
- The potential for VR support to be dropped from the release of Squadron 42 came from Sean Tracy in a "special" RTV with subscriber questions.

The downside to this is that people will be surprised, and very angry, when the feature they were looked for isn't available and CIG tries to backpedal and say "well we told you what to expect". I suspect we'll see even more chargebacks then. And CIG won't be able to do poo poo about it because they're already developing a reputation as a lovely company who is defrauding their customers.
