Chris Roberts and Ben are taking a step back from SC. Sandi is gonna run the day to day and CR is gonna do ideas stuff but as more of a part time thing. Also kind of an open secret but SC PU is now officially on hold. SQ42 only. Release Q3 2017

Its fun to hack blog pws

no no no Ben is taking over, Chris and Sandi are escaping to Panama, Ben will finish Star Citzen on his own, but it will involve scanning the script and uploading one page per day for 10000 days into your hanger and then maybe he will upload some concept art into the hangers...

Hope he just says what it is. If its an ELE it wouldnt matter if we knew or not. Not like the dinos would be able to do poo poo about a comet whether they knew or not.

There are at least two major things coming down the line. One of them he spells out quite clearly because it's public information, basically having to do with the TOS dates and etc.

The second event he can only allude to and it's because it is not so much "hilarious comedy of errors from CIG" and more "hilarious comedy of johnny law wrecking people's poo poo" and it is super dumb to just broadcast that kind of thing lest they turn their attention to you.

There is nothing in this particular blog that is going to like, change your life or anything. If you're not 100% up to date on the thread, it's a good read, and if you are, it fleshes some topics we've had known about out.

But this is just the kind of "here's what to watch out for" post. Like, if you read the back third of this thing (first 2 thirds or so are recap) then you will know what to be watching for.

So basically for weeks now Derek has been saying "2 weeks just wait the end is near" and everyone has said "the gently caress you talking about old man?" Well this is him going "look this is what the prophecy foretells." You don't see it go down yet and you don't get to know the specifics but it does kind of tell you what flavor of apocalypse to expect.

I haven't really fleshed out the first-person "experience" yet. I would like to have an area where CR's face is projected wizard of oz style with him mumbling. Unfortunately, I don't want to use anyone's exact likeness from CIG, that's just asking for lawsuits.

Wry and wise,
but also very sexual.



That 2001 comparison is extremely appropriate. That thing is a 6 hour long snoozefest that totally sacrificed any pacing that would make it remotely watchable so as to jerk itself off with an insane special effects budget. People hold up Kubrick as a genius but he's just reverse Michael Bay, turning money into unending tedium occasionally punctuated by inexplicable garbage, slow, boring scenes with a plank of wood protagonist, or its the vast majority of the film: a very, very slow special effect jerk off session that never looked great to begin with

Entirely appropriate

Ok, sorry for sperging out there guys, just wanted to give an open, honest update about where I'm this week. I'm actually gonna put out a tutorial video about SP's asset pipeline this week to show you guys what I'm talking about.

Another tip: Don't be afraid to utilize height maps in S:D, and then export those combined as a normal map and make a new S:D project with the new normal map.

Basically my typical workflow is: Model something in max and bake a normal map, take those in to S:D and add little details to the normal with height maps (I think it's a Height Normal Blend node). Then take THAT final normal and create a final S:D project I can get my curve info, world space normals, AO, and other stuff from to make an awesome texture.
