throwing my support behind the redux guy. he writes stuff that gets citizens in a tizzy and awesome criticism like 'hire an editor' when it's two guys and a blog can gently caress off. who gives a single solitary gently caress about how well it's written when it's a site not called somethingawful calling star citizen a broken piece of poo poo?

that said dude, don't take poo poo so seriously.

Epic same, don't get run out of the thread blog guy. Also in light of this stunning news I'd just like to revisit this glorious article published all of three weeks ago (I know that's a literal eternity if CIG time, but still) and reflect on how professional journalists are completely full of poo poo

I love that article. It's a perfect example of the media just taking things at face value. If any other developer on the planet was making those claims (maybe not Molyneux) there'd be no reason to doubt them. Chris Roberts is a delusional piece of loving genetic flotsam, yet his word is held to the same standard. It's insane. He deserves everything that's coming to him.

Hey thread,

I'm skipping ahead now, but after being 50+ pages behind since New Years, I finally caught up with the thread for once! And what a day to do it too.

Anyways, in that time I decided to give Chris' past games a shot. If you haven't played them, they explain so much. I regret ever thinking Sandi was responsible for the cult behavior. My new narrative is Chris is a sperg and has been recruiting like minded people for about 25 years. The real revelation was reading the manual for privateer, I think goons said he had little to do with this game, but it reads just like the hand-wavy nonsense I've come to expect from croberts and star citizen. It even warns you not to trust spaceship dealers (see SC isn't a scam, it's immersive!)


Also cats:


Thank you.

remember when the SC FPS team did a reddit AMA in 2014? https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comme...sk_us_anything/

beer asked them about the actual content, and this was their response:

quote:

[]SC-FPS-Team [S] 1155 points 1 year ago

there are so many. lets just pull one randomly from the sky.

A Persistent Universe experience. I'm a stealthy, solo player. I find a wrecked ship, i know scavengers will be around soon. I find a crate and put myself in it. I let the scavengers take the crate and put me in their ship. When i'm on their ship, some time later, i get out of the crate. Very quietly, i rummage around and find some goodies i like. I steal those... now i can either - A) Jump out the airlock and call a ride or B) go to their engine room and self destruct their ship or C) quietly hunt and execute the entire staff and take their ship.... or Z) they could have scanned the crate properly before loading it, blasted it with their ship and me with it....

I think just holding this quote up next to a peter gabriel gameplay video summarizes the project so perfectly

what if you get out of your crate, then open another crate just to find another player inside

then after a while you realize all the crates contain other players who are just as confused as you are

you land, the cargo hatch opens, and someone greets you, "welcome to the 4th stimpire"

Beet Wagon, is your starship a 300i? Because I have some news


quote:

CIG requesting feedback for possible 300i rework
submitted an hour ago by zenerbufenHigh Admiral

Meohfumado-CIG: I am neither confirming nor denying that a drastic overhaul is going to take place. I am gathering as much information as possible so that IF such an overhaul, or any rework whatsoever, does take place...we have as much ammunition as possible with regards to the fanbase's feedback that the designers and devs who are in charge of such an operation can try to deliver the best ship they possibly can which will hopefully please as many people as we possibly can.

That the backers think it needs an massive overhaul will indeed be heavily featured in my report. The more info you provide about your needs/wants/desires/expectations for the ship, the more I can provide the Devs/Designers with in regards to what our backers want out of a ship they shelled out their hard-earned money for.

What the devs/designers do with that information is up to them and their leads however.

Not sure it's really necessary to do this, but I'm going to find it therapeutic, so I'm going to pick this apart.

I'm a stealthy, solo player. - There is no stealth in this game.
I find a wrecked ship, i know scavengers will be around soon. - There are no wrecked ships in this game. Where will you find this? And how will you know scavengers will be around soon?
I find a crate and put myself in it. - There are no crates. In fact there are no enterable objects at all, except the lovely ships.
I let the scavengers take the crate and put me in their ship. - So you're going to stare at a texture for ... how long? How will you know what's happening outside the crate? How will you know when you're "in their ship"?
When i'm on their ship, some time later, i get out of the crate. - No crates, no scavengers, but I suspect if they ever add it you'll be enjoying a 15-second unskippable animation at about this time.
Very quietly, i rummage around and find some goodies i like. I steal those... - Sorry - there is no stealth, and there are no goodies, and there is no inventory system even if there were. This is painful.
now i can either - A) Jump out the airlock and call a ride - OK there are airlocks you can jump out of, or you can just wait for the game to randomly eject you. Your call, really.
B) go to their engine room and self destruct their ship - No engine room, no self-destruct, and btw, were you planning to jump out of the airlock after this rather than get blown up? If so, why murder the occupants at all, you psycho?
C) quietly hunt and execute the entire staff and take their ship - There's no stealth, so you'll be doing it loudly. You're a pussy, so you'll lose. And you can't shoot the pilot at any rate anyway.
Z) they could have scanned the crate properly before loading it, blasted it with their ship and me with it.... - This game does not have, nor will it ever have, scanners that will detect the presence of player entities inside of crates. And just because you kill innocent people doesn't mean everyone does. Freak.


This loving game exists ENTIRELY in people's minds.

All of StarCitizen should be moved to the Doom engine, it might actually run.

As a bonus, all the jpeg ships that have been sold could be inserted into the game pretty much as is. Your ships are already done.

Except we can't take his word for it cause the only word we can rely on is that of Chris roberts. Everything else is speculation.
