I do. It's a pathological need to defend the indefensible. Chris is the core reason (though hardly the only one) that the project failed, and the core reason his earlier projects failed. Painting it as him being "a perfectionist" makes it sound like he's too good for this cruel world, rather than the more accurate picture that he's an inept thumb. It also diverts attention away from his ineptitude and makes it about word definitions instead, like it did ITT.

He’s the worst kind. He’s a poser perfectionist who has no idea how to describe what he actually wants, but he’s more then happy to tell someone that something they’ve been slaving over for days (from his last feedback session) is not what he is looking for. Thus, sending that person spiraling for another batch of days and nights trying to come up with something he will like. Any CIG people reading this and having some ptsd from the description?

DA was the only studio I’ve ever had the displeasure of sleeping under my desk numerous nights. Many employees had pillows next to their desk, and it was a prairie dog culture. If someone popped up late at night from their cubicle and tried to go home, everyone else would pop up and look at that person and they would either sit back down, or know they were getting ratted out the next day to the leaders.

Right. Chris is not an artist, and I'm sure he sees himself as no mere artist. He's a black turtleneck-wearing auteur.

According to Da Vinci, "Art is never finished, only abandoned." It is clear from this perspective that portions of Star Citizen are already unequivocal examples of art, and, as a whole, the project is well on its way to becoming a work of art of unprecedented scale and caliber. Therefore, Christopher Roberts is undoubtedly an artist of undeniable consequence.

The problem comes when you hire people who absolutely love what they do (and would be willing to do it for almost free because it’s their dream job) and then put them in a meritocracy culture. Then you get a fanatical team of over workers that refuse to let the next person in the cube over do better then them. It also promotes a toxic culture of dragging down colleagues to management, constantly, in order to try to secure the biggest bonus check by poo poo talking their teammates contributions.

A particular top AAA studio that a huge amount of vets and greenies think they would love to work for has quite a long history of seriously under-paying salaries, and promoting the “if you go above and beyond” you get the big bonus checks. See all those sportscars in the parking lot? That could be you too!

Kids today think that making games must be as fun as playing games. It’s not: it’s more like a factory job for most of the team who doesn’t get to influence meta Design or Art direction. But don’t listen to me. Based on Reddit: I know nothing of real game development.

A wicked man goes to hell and is being given the guided tour by the Devil himself. The implements of torture are plentiful and the wailing enough to wake the dead would that they could ever sleep here.

The screams grow ever louder as they found a corner and come upon two vast, bubbling cauldrons filled with desperate souls being forever boiled alive. One cauldron is surrounded by a busy legion of pitchfork wielding demons while the other is completely unattended.

The man, perplexed at the sight, asks his guide, “What going on here?”

“Oh, well these cauldrons are where we keep our Americans and Russians. The American one needs constant attention for when one climbs out, he starts helping the next and soon you have a real flight risk on your hands.”

“And the Russians?”

“Ah, yes, well fortunately we don’t have to bother with them at all. If one does start trying to climb out, the other Russians just pull him back in again.”

Check it out here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/6/thread/subscriber-s-program-feedback-discussion

As of tomorrow you'll see our first April Vault offering, stayed tuned here for further details.

I am also excited to announce our Imperator and Centurion Subscriber Flair for this month. This will be awarded later this month so if it interests you you should subscribe now and get your hands on these custom skinned Gemini Pistols.

I am going to go out on a limb and say if the game removed (doesn't load or render) half the poo poo you've supposed to have/see, that's going to increase your fps. So I can see how you'd go from 20s to 30s fps. But what do I know, right? :grin:

I remember when some of those retards were knocking me for having an external transition camera in Battlecruiser/Universal Combat because - YES - that poo poo is boring. I know.

- Target planet
- Press a key
- Enter planet (ext transition camera)
- Done

And if you want a precise location

- Set waypoint on planet
- Target planet
- Press a key

- Done
