What other good game quotes could be Star Citizened?

Crowdfunding has changed. It's no longer about nostalgia, new ideas or fun games. It's an endless series of stretch goals, promised by liars and the naive. Crowdfunding, and its consumption of money, has become a well-oiled machine. Crowdfunding has changed. ID tagged backers carry ID tagged jpegs, use ID tagged coffee mugs. Autisms inside their bodies enhance and deregulate their reddit posting. Information control. Emotion control. Downvote control. Everything is monitored, and kept under control. Crowdfunding has changed. The age of PC gaming has become the age of control. All in the name of averting catastrophe from publishers of mass destruction. And he who controls the archiving, controls history. Crowdfunding has changed. When the subreddit is under total control, denial... becomes routine.

My evidence for the fact that CIG does not know how long it will take to program Star Citizen:

They repeatedly state they don't know how long it will take to debug Alpha 2.0.

They refuse to give release dates.

Everything they've ever put a release date on has been delayed.

OK your turn.

Chris Roberts Autobiography

Page 341

"Yeah and that's when we really knew the backers had gone full retard.
They were, and I'm not making this poo poo up, they were giving familiar little nicknames to jpegs of ships that didn't exist, like they were familiar with them, or they used them daily or something.
That's when the penny really dropped, these were not rational people. We'd heard about the PDFs these crazy fuckers were making, user manuals [laughs] - again, not making this up, loving user manuals for jpegs. Crazy.
You have to understand, those were different times, Kickstarter allowed any old rear end in a top hat to fleece nerds with no come back. If you sat down now and told someone with a straight face that you could just post on a web site promising all kinds of insane bullshit and folk would simply throw cash at you, unquestioned, well. They'd think you were mad."

Actually ED is 128-bit SIMD, and its maps are much larger then AC 2.0.

yeah not correct, these are operations performed on vectors of 32 or 64 bit values simultaneously for speed gains

there is no hardware support in x86 for quad precision math

So the question then becomes, why can't SC create maps of that size, because CIG have already stated their map size, and the size of their universe. If they could create full scale maps, I expect they would.

probably cause they suck and are bad

Hypothetically speaking, what would the largest possible map sizes look like with quad precision? Millions of lightyears?

well it depends on the accuracy you need between values, but say you wanted 0.0005 (half-thousandths) and you had a big ol' single space with quad precision coordinates, the largest value you could have with that accuracy is:

5,070,602,400,912,917,605,986,812,821,504

which if we treat that as meters, is equal to just slightly more than 535,963,096,677,217 light years

Do we know when we're going to see the economic systems? Because that's really what I'm interested in, and most worried about. Since all the major "cornerstones" of gameplay are implemented, the economy is their biggest chance of loving up really, really bad.

I wouldn't worry about it honestly, there's pretty much 0% chance of them loving up anything.

All the gameplay systems are done and implemented with flawless precision, like 95% of the art content is done and will be put in the game within the next 2 weeks, plus the final handful of bugs will be smashed in those 2 weeks as well.

We're looking at full scale epic release by the end of the year and the backer investment will start paying out immediately, this will win goty for sure, top the steam sales charts and be swarming with eager players on day 1.


I'm predicting we'll be able to use our immense branes to game the economy and market some trumped up ship details to all these newbs, make some sick bank and then just never deliver anything to them :roflolmao:

EXACTLY. It's a feature-poor tech-demo. Tribes jet-packs and the general speed of gameplay were actually ground-breaking. Not this re-hashed vanilla space-floaty pew we got here.

(True fact: I actually worked on Tribes back in the olden days, before I knew better than to work in the gaming industry)

aw that's cool, I loved tribes

it truly was a groundbreaking game

star citizen is doing nothing really new so lol at the people that think it's some sort of amazing feat never before attempted, right now it's a really lovely version of Operation Flashpoint with no land, horrible vehicles and like 1% of the total content

How about "You as a company cannot sell a digital product without a specified release date and if you completely loving fail to hit that release date everyone can get a refund in no more than a week." We're not talking like, big daddy government here. We're talking basic consumer protections.

Or, in keeping with the article, "Do not stalk people and cultivate addictive behavior by accumulating their personal information and using it to target ads at them." I mean I can't believe that's not already illegal.

just make it all illegal

no presales, no crowdfunding, no microtransactions

if a project needs money, it will have to use normal investor channels. if you want to help projects become reality, you will have to become an actual investor.
