If we could get a bunch of Goons to cover this really poorly and then use it in a montage video of some sort with money burning in the background of every scene that would be the best thing I could think of.
Here's some materials for that video.

Doesn't work too well, that strip was an Elite Dangerous reference (for dropping too close to a star when jumping to a binary system without paying attention)

Yeah, working on that actually. Check out the dev blog I wrote earlier today.

I think your game already exist and its called command conquer renegade. it had meaningfull ground air and vehicle combat with basebuilding orbital strikes and ion cannons.
even screenshots look similar to LOD

the game came out in 2002 and was really fun to play and frankly if you could deliver same thing LOD could be fun.
heres the problem.

some fans are already rebuilding renegade in better engine and its free

https://www.renegade-x.com/
so question is what can LOD offer thats better than renegade x?

The reflections in the glass are still black, there's weird artifacts all around the edges, and they forgot to completely erase the line going to the text in the top right. They're not even making half-assed models in Max, they're just painting over poo poo in Photoshop.

Someone already alerted me to that.

If I ever find out it's the mods, I will a) tell Lowtax b) delete my a/c and never come back

hey derek would you want to participate in goon projects like leading goons to build their very own star shitizen. With you leading goons to make a game. If you start a thread everyone would participate, Because it would be Derek Smart making a awesome game.

Or maybe you could participate in sagdcXI a game jam where you get 1 month of time to make a functional game. (next one is in december I think)
seriously everyone should check out the games that got made during the summer jam. http://www.awfuljams.com/sagdc-x/games most of these games are better than star citizen

It's messed up.

For one thing; the fact that they need more than one flight model, instead of using data parameters passed to a primary one in order to make the ships handle differently, cater to different play styles etc is telling.

So now they're going to have to deal with bugs, issues, tweaks etc in all these flight models. More distractions, downtime, ire etc. I swear sometimes I have to wonder wtf is going on over there.

ps: I've been writing flight models since the eighties. In fact, my most advanced flight model is in my 2009 games (All Aspect Warfare / Angle Of Attack). Here is a narrated YouTube video of one. Watch closely.

Seems like a fun game :) you should try DCS world which is free.

if you addet physically clickkable buttons your game would improve 10 fold. Like i have fond memories of surviving engine failures in black shark. Beating aa batteries with proper flare usage etc..

Since you have so much experience building games people would be more than happy to accept you as one of the judges.

You can even join the irc channel and meet up with fellow game developers and discuss about making games
