Then you can hardly make fun of any SC kool ade chuggers, practically all of them have something wrong with them mentally. One of the two leaders of the SC guild for [H] is literally a basement dwelling autist. I.e. a grown man living in his sister's basement, unemployed, spending thousands of dollars on jpegs, acquired by sucking his uncles dick mowing his uncles lawn. And he admits it. And then he says that people that think he's a dipshit are jealous of his disposable income, so he's probably also retarded.

Doesn't exactly seem like a company running on vapor fumes, Derek. How sure are you about a company out of cash in Q1?

If you look at their daily income you can see it has already crapped itself back down to the sub $1m/month levels (well below their burn rate). Overall October will look good, but they can't do that every month.

If the baby POO comes out and is well reviewed (by like, actual review sites, not SCs horde of retards that will say it's amazing no matter what) that'll give them some time. Maybe enough time to poo poo out some SQ42. Awesome SQ42 could save them but I don't see that happening. I think it'll just be single player AC with shittily written cut scenes.

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.

I've seen the same thing over and over. Obviously not all jpeg buyers fall into this category, but I bet being a major SC proponent means you're something like 1,000% more likely than average to have some sort of serious mental or emotional problems.

Is it conceivable that if they are only leasing their new studio that all the upgrades/reno could be deducted from their lease? I don't know much about that sort of thing but it seems no different than a tenant replacing something in their apartment and getting it deducted from next month's rent

No. Not at all. Because there's a 99.9999999% chance that whoever leases it after christ croberts won't be using it as a game studio. The guy that leases the space after croberts departs is going to turn it into a shwarma restaurant and isn't going to pay a single loving cent for all the space related bullshit and 4000 dollar airplane desks that croberts installed.

I thought Croberts said in his citizen con spiel that they'd already done a poo poo load of mocap for the AAA cast. If I'm remembering right it makes the extra studio even more retarded.

Edit: not that you should believe anything that comes out of Croberts' mouth about how much work they've done on the game.

Croberts builds mocap studio for game he was funded to create.

Game that croberts built mocap studio for goes tits up and dies on the vine.

Croberts still has mocap studio.

Croberts makes money off mocap studio.

Just a thought.

Alternative possibility:

Croberts uses mocap studio to implement realistic rape scenes his supersperg customers are clamoring for.

Croberts uses body scanning technology in his mocap studio to scan in CIG employees, which his aspie customer base also clamors for.

Croberts fulfills all the fantasies of his basement dwelling autist customers by letting them digitally rape his own CIG employees.

Funding goes through the roof, allowing croberts to make the most amazing game in the history of mankind.

Everyone wins, except for possibly the CIG employees that are doomed to have their digital avatars violated constantly for the next decade by a bunch of sexless virgin sperglords.

To be fair this guy says he just did "side jobs" to pay for this. Either he's lying, or he's very wealthy indeed. I don't know what $30k is to him, but it's probably a lot less than it is to most people.

It's the people spending $10k when that's every penny they've got in their bank account that are really insane. If you're swimming in money and throw some of it on this bonfire it's not so weird.

I don't see any evidence that he's all that wealthy. 30000 = 10k a year for the three years the game has been in development. Lots of non wealthy people can make 10 grand a year in side jobs/OT/whatever. I've spent more on Amazon over the same time period, and I am definitely not "very wealthy."

I guess this depends on your definition of wealthy. Considering 30k to be "fun money" for you to blow on a hobby is fairly wealthy in the eyes of many people. My main point is that if he really is in a position of "well I had this 30k lying around so I figured I'd spend it on X instead of Y" it's not such a big deal as some of the people on reddit who are saying "I spent 5k on a space jpg and now I'm being evicted because I can't pay rent but it is all worth it!".


This guy articulates the point well, IMO. It's not so much about the actual value, but what that sort of money means in your life.

It's definitely relative to some extent. I just don't see any evidence that this guy is actually really wealthy. If he's got 6 million bucks and wants to plow 0.5% of that into spaceparp jpegs, that's one thing. I still think he's a dipshit, but it's not huge deal to him financially. If, on the other hand, he's just a guy making 100k a year and has been plowing 10% of his gross earnings into Christ Croberts Factory of Dreams, every year for the last three years, that is a very different thing.

From what's in the article I would guess he's closer to the latter, than the former, but no way to say for sure.

Regardless of this particular shitizens finances, we all know there are backers that HAVE pledged amounts that go beyond all reason. People that have thousands in ships on credit cards, have spent college loan money, have spent significant fractions of their income, etc.

The Chris Roberts letter doesn't really prove that Star Citizen isn't going to come out and that CIG is on the verge of its failure cascade coming to light. It's a pretty good indicator that there's a whole shitload of problems but it's not really the dumpster fire everyone's waiting for. The dumpster fire I'm talking about is the point when CIG can no longer sustain the charade and all the smoke and mirrors come down, and everyone has to sit down and admit they got hosed and their money is gone. That's what the author is looking at as a possibility, that's what we're all expecting to happen, that's what the crazy backers are having conniptions about whenever it gets mentioned. Fact is since that letter and all the idiocy that happened from it CIG is still keeping up the image to their (seemingly eager to be misled) backers that things are trotting along nicely.

But you're right about the follow-up. The clever ones will be keeping an eye on this thing so they can be the first to get the article out titled "THE STAR CITIZEN DREAM CRASHES" and then the retrospectives asking "What went wrong?" because as the author says in the end, Star Citizen loving up would be a pretty big deal in terms of discussions about the future of crowd-sourcing.

The croberts letter is most definitely a dumpster fire. What you're referring to as the dumpster fire would be more accurately described as the dumpster fire setting the entire city block ablaze and killing all inhabitants.

Why is the constant rebuttal of telling someone they are an idiot for spending money on jpegs is that they have disposable income. How do they not see that the argument has nothing to do with disposable income and everything to do with the fact that it is a stupid loving purchase regardless. At least if you are going to throw money away, gamble so you have at least a remote possibility of winning some of it back.

Quite simply: they're dumb as gently caress, and the ones that weren't already dumb as gently caress became so with regard to SC as soon as they got so financially and emotionally invested. I've literally seen an unemployed Mom's basement dweller telling people they're just jealous of his disposable income because he doesn't have any bills.

It's about 50/50, really. The fact that we all know croberts needs to continue raising tens of millions of dollars from new pledges in order to deliver on the 64 million dollars worth of stretch goal promises he already made is extremely Ponziish.

Not that I think croberts intentionally set out to Ponzi people. It just seems to have been an unintended result caused by his incompetence and stupidity.

Probably something like "Gee, now maybe he actually has an engine that he can build his game in.

Vocal work is paid at a different rate. Vocal + facial capture is slightly more, but it is not much. That's what the on-going negotiations are about : http://variety.com/2015/film/news/sag-aftra-video-game-voice-actors-authorize-strike-1201612750/

Note that for celebrities: Chapelsky told Reuters that top talent commonly receives “in the high five figures for a single session.”

So he would pull in somewhere between 90,000-500,000 for his session, just based on estimates for other actors. Gary tends to like the work and charge a lower fee, which is why he shows up often in games:
The Legend of Spyro
Call of Duty: World at War
Call of Duty: Blackops

I do not know. It depends on how often they have his character speak besides this presentation. I'd guess they'd at least book a full schedule with him for a day to get all of the speeches, then another day if they needed to do setup (blocking and such) for work with other characters. Assuming SQ42 comes out, there will be more information then.

So one or two days with each of the celebrities? What were they doing the other 55 days?

Your previous post seems designed to give the impression that they spent very little on the talent (hey, maybe they only spent 90 grand on Oldman!) when the total truth seems more likely to be that they spent many many millions on talent and VO and Mocap. And are still not done spending on it.
