The technology required to get a game to actually remember where you were when you saved costs $14,000,000.

Why would you want to leave Star Citizen, citizen? Using the save and quit option shows your disturbing lack of commitment to this new lifestyle.

In addition to writing Jump Point articles and News Updates, Associate Writer Adam Wieser tackled a pretty massive S42 task: conforming the scripts to accurately reflect the dialogue recorded during last yearís performance shoot. A laborious process for sure, but now that itís complete, the designers will no longer need to hunt down footage to see how scenes played out.


Remember that massive loving script Chris was so proud of? Apparently nobody loving read it.

Going back many pages, but doesn't this pretty much confirm that this was just an excuse for Chris and Sandi to piss about with some famous actors?

Also, I've been having some good results growing cats in window boxes:


Will I be able to do this in SC's farming simulation sections, and will I need a seperate ship to grow dogs?

What the gently caress is wrong with these people? Who the hell looks at a game promising ship-to-ship combat, first person shooter combat and a universe to explore but thinks "I want to be a photographer"? That's like going into the latest Madden title and saying "This football stuff is all well and good, but where's my option to design ballet costumes?"

Then why the hell wouldn't they just do that? There's fidelity, it's fun and it can switch between modes quickly and seamlessly while providing a positive user experience.
In addition to what others have said, I think CR's "saviour of PC gaming" mentality enters into it. He can't be the saviour if he does the same stuff that PC games are already doing. EVERYTHING has to be new and the product of his genius mind so that those he saves will owe their thanks to Christ Roberts and Christ Roberts alone.

Although why he has to reinvent so many wheels but is happy to use the Cryengine is beyond me.

> HELMET

You put on your helmet. There is no way to see through the face plate.
>OPEN HELMET
The front of the helmet spits into several sections which retract to the back of the helmet. You briefly wonder how this many moving pieces can be a good idea for something that needs to be airtight.

You are now looking though a full-face visor.
>RAISE VISOR
The visor raises, slicing off the top of your head. Now lobotomised, you stumble around your quarters before stumbling into your computer terminal chair. You log into the space internet and spend all your credits on pretty pictures.

I wonder if there's a crossover between Star Citizens and Sovereign Citizens, the both seem to have an obsession with the power of names. One response to that video mentions a "Darak Smart" and a "David Braden." That's not even a childish attempt at insult, it's just refusing to spell people's names correctly as if doing so will somehow be a victory for Smart and Braben.

Particularly amusing what with Braben probably not giving a poo poo about SC given that he's busy with his actually-released, functioning game. Which I bought last night, you fuckers.

That's even worse. Reminds me of being back at school when a couple of kids decided it was funny to call me Geoff. My name isn't Geoff or anything like it. Geoff isn't a clever acronym, the name of someone else they were comparing me to, it was just the wrong name. Always bugged me not because those kids were calling me names (hell, "Geoff" is better than most terms of abuse), but because they thought they were being so clever. Same thing here. This isn't just the sort of thing you'd get from children, it's the sort of thing you'd get from really stupid children.

Wait. So Ben took a phone call on his wedding day because someone else was having a forum argument? I can't decide what's more pathetic: Ben for taking the call, his wife for marrying someone who'd take that call, or Ben again for considering someone a friend when they'd phone him during his wedding because they couldn't handle internet shenanigans.

Someone come up with some new paarp material, this is depressing.

You need blowtorches to cut up all the seized diving equipment. Because obviously the best thing to do with pressurised air cylinders is cut them open with blowtorches. A plan with no flaws.
