Of course this will never happen the game will just crash.

Derek Smart is like ... Muad'Dib if you think about it. He who controls the JPEGs controls the internet. When Derek was cast out of the space game community, he came to our sietch and proved his prowess as a goon. Nay, he proved himself a greater shitposter than all other goons, for which the prophecies foretold will lead us to salvation.

He is the Kwisatz Haderach of shitposting. He is the one who can shitpost where we cannot.

And honestly the reason I would like more people to get a refund is not to ruin the game. It is the pull the stars out of Croberts loving eyes so he can get back to the reality of making a loving video game by a loving deadline and know that this trampoline of income isn't going to bounce his incompetent rear end back forever.

So hey refund update:

The end of September I requested a refund on what I have. Most of a month rolled by and I theorized that since my "Community Monicker" and "Handle" is the same name that I have here (and that it's clear that RSI/CIG is watching these threads in some capacity since Beer was banned and BlueStreak had that email picture thing) I was intentionally being ignored vs the seemingly rest of people saying their refunds of various amounts were going through. :tinfoil: sure but considering all the other stranger than reality poo poo that's going on for a space videogame* who is to say.

I spoke with my bank last week and they are willing to do a chargeback from 2013 because they are cool like that. Yesterday I sent a final email to CIG support reminding them it's been a month (to the day) since I've started the refund process and I'll be initiating a chargeback since I'm being ignored. Wouldn't you know it I get an email this morning about how they are very sorry and they will refund finally. Weirdly every email I've had with a person before this have used my real name on the account. This email finally agreeing to a refund responded to 'KakerMix' :tinfoil: It isn't even my logon-name or email or anything :tinfoil:

I really hope that this game comes out because I think that I still have a standing offer from some of the guys who won TNGS to help them steal and self destruct pubbie ships. That sounds like a good pastime so I hope that it all works out.

Klyith posted:

Plausible theories:
a) imgur's deletion system has some sort of algorithm that compares reports to views and probably upvotes, so N delete votes won't kill every image.

b) It's not a 100% automated system.

c) It actually stopped a while ago once the news got to the top of r/starcitizen, and the last few deletions are still propagating through imgur's cache system. That would explain why some old stuff is still getting hit but new images on the last 10 pages seem safe.

If The Wuldge shows up later with "inside info" that it was all Derek Smart's doing, we'll know it was (c).
I think my favourite part is that reddit is convinced it's all a Derek Smart Joint simply because the OP has an image of him saying he's coming for their jpeg spaceships and they don't understand that "jpeg" is being used in this thread as a derogatory term for imaginary spaceships in the imaginary game Shart Citizen, rather than literally their uploaded images.

The article lays out the facts as known thus far very cleanly, without coming down hard on one side or another.

So of course the faithful are screaming about it like Alec Meer personally murdered their housepetsjpegs.

Exciting Lemon

Liquid Gold

Ingredients
5 Gallons Motts Apple Juice
10 lbs Granulated Cane Sugar
4 lbs Turbinado Sugar
3 lbs Honey
10 Packets Danstar Champagne Years (2.5 cups Water)
Yeast Nutrient
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 Tsp Cardamom

Process
1. Pour apple juice, sugar, and honey into sanitized container. Shake well.
2. Hydrate yeast with nutrient.
3. Pitch yeast. Make sure you have a blowoff tube.
4. Add spices.
5. Age until you get tired of waiting.

Notes
1. The longer you let it age, the smoother it will taste. I'm expecting this stuff to be amazing in a year.
2. This is insanely potent. 18% ABV.
3. I've done some experiments with Wyeast 4347 and it might make things a bit crisper. Still takes a lot of aging. Might try a starter with apple juice next time.
4. You'll need a massive bucket for this. I had a 6 gallon carboy and it was nearly overflowing between the honey and juice.
5. I wish I had known how to make this stuff when I was in college.

EDIT: I doubt Blarghle reads this thread but the above recipe was inspired by him.

Guys, please stop. if you keep encouraging refunds and questioning CIG, they won't have funds to make the game. Things would have been perfectly fine if you all had just stayed quiet, but now with bad publicity and less funds things are going to be even more delayed and they have to resort to more creative ways to get funding. This could have been successful! Everyone's free to spend their money how they want so just enjoy the dream that costs you nothing. you stirred up the crazies, that exist in every community, which have spoiled it for the silent majority. If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all.

I'm sorry that reality doesn't fall neatly into the personal narrative you've constructed where all people who choose to spend money on a game of their choosing suffer from some mental disorder that you get to play the hero and save them from. The reality is that people see something in the game that excites them, and they are willing to spend money because of that.
