Ok, this is for all the whiners out there that keep thinking this game is Pay to Win or somehow they wont be able to compete with other players in the game because they couldn’t buy a big ship. Look, this is a crowd funded game right? Ok, you understand that. Now, think guys…… would this game be as big as it is if the BACKERS with money didn’t pledge a larger amount than you? Of course not, because of the BACKERS with the cash, YOU get to benefit from their success by having a better game that costs less than the average game!! Instead of complaining about the BACKERS with money, you should thank them. “I want to say THANK YOU backers (all backers) for helping CIG to build one Badass game” Back to what I was saying. Now, you can get the same ship in-game that they spent REAL money to get. As for Pay to Win, lets see, what do the BACKERS with big ships win? A planet? Nope, your hangar? Nope, so what do they win? Nothing! The game is an OPEN SANDBOX, that means you set your own goals, it’s about your imagination, you want to have a big ship, be a trader of some kind and earn your in-game money to buy your BIG ship. You want to explore, go do it, plenty of starter ships that are under the average cost of a store bought game. Look, P2W is just another way for people to whine about other players having a big ship(s). The big ships in the game is one of the reason its letting CIG build YOU and I a bigger and better game. I’m confused as to why that is a bad thing for some of you, didn’t you pledge to play this game? If you did, you just hit the jackpot, look at what you can get for $30.00 or worse case scenario you spent $60.00. So, stop complaining and enjoy the game when it comes out and tell your friends that you were part of it, you helped fund and in turn, helped build the most awesome Space Game ever!
P.S. I plan on spending a lot of time in my Reliant making runs, then switching to a bigger ship to spend some time with my friends exploring!!! See you in the verse and make it your own!!

I've checked this thread like 4 times before today.....what's the story on why this is a thing?

I believe they initially held a position of ambiguity when it came to her being his wife, or possibly even not allow discussion of it.

Basically some people questioned how she got the job, since she has no experience or qualifications, is she his wife or something, no she can't be because his wife's name is different, etc.

It's something Smart mentioned as well, and was still ignored by Croberts and Co.

I could be wrong though.

They got the high poly model of the claymore and are asking the artist to completely change the design. Instead of the flat plastic cover, the boss copy/pasted the grenade design on the claymore and said 'make it look like this', and blamed 'distributed development' for the mistake.

tl;dr: they are confirming the rumour that they are making artists redo work which already had concept approval.

That is loving hilarious.

Seriously that's such a confirmation, nothing like that should happen in game development at that stage. Changing the (finished?) high poly model with drastic changes, and ones that would be simple to add if done from the start, is such a bad sign of development. It shows they don't stick to the approved concept, they don't care about artists/company time being wasted on needless revisions, and a basic lack of understanding how art is created for a game.

It's also just a plain stupid creative decision; why would there be a little tiny window cut out on a claymore mine? So you can see the explosives and metal balls inside? Why would that even be a thing?

I'm sure it'd be a waste, it's like those family tree heritage websites. Sure you might discover your ancestry back to the stone age, but only if someone else has done all that work already. I assume this would be a similar thing, the company would have to provide all those details themselves, and there's no way Croberts would do that.

Wow I've not seen that before. As an artist I also love the fact that they take a high poly (not in game ready at all) asset and manipulate it in Unreal in a perfectly designed set, probably just so they can say "this was rendered IN GAME!".

Effectively this is the same as rendering it in Marmoset or something, but I'm sure average Shitizens eat it up as more proof that there's a fully functioning game just around the corner, because this is a screenshot.
