maybe they are referring to 2.0 hitting the normal servers next year instead of PTU?

Let's be honest here. The version numbering has not been consistent for any period over 6 months. 2.0 can mean whatever the gently caress they want it to mean. also 'alpha', 'beta' and 'retail ready'.

Since we're in the process of burning Klueless Karl, my turn.

Remember when he said some nonsense about my "non existent" legal action as per what I posted here and later moved to my blog?

Well, I went to our archives and randomly dug up some invoices (1, 2, 3)from the named legal firms in that last action. In fact, my calculations were off. When I
looked at our Quickbooks ledger, the amount for just that action across 4 law firms, a PI firm, a forensics imaging firm etc was $609, 738.86

There you have it.

Honestly, this is just as casual as Sandi discovering diplomas while cleaning her desk

Why the gently caress are you arguing about the use of Cryengine. It is completely irrelevant. It might have been the only reasonable choice at the time, might have been the second best. It does not matter..

Do you really thing that CR would have managed a project backed by UE4 any better? You are only hung up on Cryengine because this name dropping is the only thing you feel confident about from the sidelines.

A Neurotic Jew posted:

:confused: It's actually of interest in terms of the chronic scope creep and how it eventually reached a point beyond what Cryengine could conceivably do, hth.

Given competent management and seemingly unlimited funds Cryengine can do anything UE4 or any other engine can do. The fact that you start with one renderer should not limit your options. You just rewrite anything.

Or alternatively. You know. Get bugged down in JPEG concept art and just burn through the funds

I have an ex-friend with a scythe who refused to sell when it was peaking at $2,400 USD as well as another $1200 stashed in jpeg futures. She is pretty mentally ill but me insisting she use her ships for pressing medical bills and therapy but she instead insisted on going to work her blue collar physically demanding and dangerous job long hours because " that money has been spent, and it's gone. I am not someone to take something back. " in short a bit of an idiot. She was mad at me for being so insistent on her repurosing the funds and she pretty much made it clear to me that I should stop trying to help her / be in her life as a friend. She was rather hard to be around emotionally.

This pattern has been repeated with so many of my cig backer friends it is mind boggling. Another person was a military vet with PTSD who was foregoing therapy to buy more jpegs... The list in my limited experience just goes on and on.

If Legal keeps blocking all the blogposts Derek wants to make due to the number of contained bloopers, perhaps he should start doing the same with LOD release packages

SirTagz
Feb 25, 2014



Concerning the new Studio. They have said they wanted to rent out the mocup stuff from the beginning. I was just assuming that idea was cancelled. Guess not.

However a more interesting question is: Under which legal entity is this new studio? Assuming the CIG financial state really is as lovely as we think it is, CR would certainly try and insulate his secondary projects from the eventual bankruptcy of the Star Citizen fiasco.

When talking about selling real-estate, I like the fact that they will be selling the same penthouse to everyone. I seriously doubt they will model 10 blocks of skyscrapers to house everyone when they can just model 3 rooms, sell access to everyone and say that 'absolutely everyone will be located in a different building in the future'.

Or they can of-course say that the rooms are all in separate buildings but just forget to add windows (or just add 1 window which loops some random video)

The fact that they are paying him in installments should give your the idea how bad the situation is. Any bets on when we get 'SPLASH TWO' from Bootcha? I bet since he was in for 200K, he gets his money back in 2x100K installments and the next one is after Anniversary Sale in 10 days or so.

Bootcha, when you get the rest of your money back you should post one question in this thread. You do not have to tell us that it is the question that you asked CIG and they didn't have an answer for... Don't comment on it, just ask the question. I need this.

When I was younger and discovering the fun of Usenet, there was an idea for a game where you would be the captain of a capital space ship. It would be a deep simulator, complex, with numerous interacting systems. You could travel widely in the galaxy, join in with different factions, battle, fly together with friends, all in a procedural generated universe. X-Wing was a wonderful thing, and I loved the simple depth of the story, which wasn't in extraneous and long cutscenes, but presented in mission where the story beats would influence the mission. You suddenly discover that the A-wing group coming to escort your transports were attacked by the empire. The only one who could defend them is you... and the Tie-Bombers are coming from both sides.

I loved all of it, but X-Wing was limited. You only got one hyperspace jump, one mission location, and when you finished, you warped out. You could never warp to another area, to dock with capital ships to reload or repair, to pilot capital ships. BattleCruiser was offered up as that opportunity: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlecruiser_3000AD

Eventually it would see release in 1996, but the release was unstable on my system. I had trouble getting it working, from reasons (I've heard) related to the forced release by Take Two. I never tried the other releases, and instead focused more on Tie Fighter (1994), I-War (1997), FreeSpace (1998), which, while limited, had enough features to be enjoyable to play, even if they were far more limited in scope.

But I'll never forget how great the promise was and how excited I was in the late 1980s to hear of this great sim that was coming out.

I am still waiting on the OP buying me a new av for stealing my money back in 199X with those promises. Sigh. I bet Legal doesn't allow it because it might set a dangerous precedence

I just can't think of anything to say because that was the most bizarre stream. They have a game ready to release to the public and they spend three hours interviewing each other and talking about motion capture. Meanwhile, new ships on sale for ridiculous prices, old ships with wingfins for more money, here's a whales-only club that will cost you $1000 to get into. And then last minute- it'scomingouttoday here'savideo bye!

It's like Chris has completely detached from the day-to-day reality of his project. Or, more likely, they set a deadline of "Have something out today or you're all fired" and they're just running with it.

I think the reasoning is that they wanted to leave the 'best' for the last (LOL). Imagine the shitposting if they had blown theirload in the first 5 minutes and then interviewed each other for 2 hours and 55 minutes.

Also. CR wants to direct movies.

I posted that a few pages back. If they failed to get 2.0 out by the middle of december. If I cannot play a Connie by then and have my friend join me, that's when I'll be done with SC. If they hit that delivery, then I'll be happy with the progress. I have a different perspective from the zeitgeist here, which is why my perspective is confusing.

Also, I need to head to bed!

D_Smart posted:

So going by the 2.0 non-release (I did say that it won't be ready, but they'd release it for anni anyway), are we to assume then that if none of the above happens by Dec 15th, you're done? You do realize that's like, 3 weeks away, right?

I cannot believe I am agreeing with DS but there is no bloody way they will get a smooth multicrew out to everyone in 3 weeks. Even 3 months would be an unreal expectation from an optimist
