Thanks for the blog post Mr Smart, it was very informative and enlightening :) I had no idea that they just switched to x64 and scrapped two years of work, that was mind boggling. And that 8 of the 14 studios are in West Hollywood and Santa Monica, one of which is a branch of their Texas studio..?

What's striking to me is the dissonant levels of detail, effort and polish. There are all these hyper-involved features like the elevators, ramps, ladders and hatches you need to interact with to get anywhere, or the myriad pilot seat animations with flip top canopies or spinning seats. Meanwhile you can't go five minutes without clipping through something or just crashing.

Shouldn't the first priority be getting a stable engine running, laying down a couple of basic spaceship hulls that can move and shoot, and then adding all the pointless immersive detail?

I bought Elite: Dangerous on sale because of this thread.

I may or may not like it but $15 on an existing game feels reasonable compared to tens of thousands on jpegs.

It's weird how the screens in the corners are pointed straight forward. They really should be angled towards the pilot so they're pointed at them.

edit: Imagine if a single video game had a max amount you can spend of $1000 a year. That seems so ridiculously reasonable to anyone with a healthy mindset for video games. Such a model would crush Star Citizen. They prey on retarded people

They'd just get multiple accounts to max each one out on spending.

So I was thinking about how the pilot is invincible once they sit in the captain's chair.

What are the chances hat this is so that the pilot isn't randomly killed by a bullet, laser or missile clipping through the ship and damaging the player model? Or ship collisions with other objects doing the same thing?

Kinda sad that they have obviously spent so much money on their facilities etc and are having these kind of problems. Wouldn't like a CFO or someone step and and say "uh hey guys we can make do just fine with a room full of Ikea desks here instead of a $20,000 table"

That sounds like something a publisher would say.

My favourite thing about redditor rage against Derek Smart is how upset they are about his name. They can't handle that his last name is "Smart" so desperately try to avoid saying it, leading to the bizarre use of different names for him. You can't possibly call him Derek "Smart" because then you're saying that he's smart oh my god how can you possibly argue with someone who's last name is "Smart".

You can't argue with Derek Smart, it's just a fact.
