They just need to release 'The Homer' in spaceship form with a PARRRRP horn for those close calls in the hangar and make both sides happy.

Also, following for a while but I missed the origin of Sandi and the hairy nethers and the wheelchair reference. Help me out?

After about a month from the initial email, I got my entire refund of $550 paypal-ed to me yesterday (from CIG) about an hour after receiving the confirmation email from the CSR.

Congrats!

Maybe Croberts should have been given a fern, then an ant farm, and then maybe a gerbil to verify being a responsible adult before the internet gave him an orphanage with 94 million crying babbys.

Wouldn't selling new ships at 1-2 bucks a pop be more lucrative than hundreds? I mean, if every backer bought a new ship (if it was made affordable) when it came out that would be a million bucks, but funding is nowhere near that.

Or is it epeen to have $pace$hip$?


Oh man... it's epeen.

Derek spoiled the name of the ship they were gonna sell at that stupid Citizencon thing, but he did it quite early so they had time to change it. Unfortunately they forget to swap the placeholder text with the actual name so it just said POTATO.

I should clarify there was no proof that the name he revealed was right but it was an odd coincidence that the ship name ended up being POTATO for a while. Certainly seemed like he made them panic a little and they hosed up in an amusing manner.

With no due respect, I find this to be in incredibly bad taste, for not to say horrible timing.

Hell, the joke would have been bad at any time. Someone posing with Star Citizen gear, a gun in hand, and their head covered is pretty much exactly what this community, company and project does not need right now, or at any time.

And as a matter of fact - we don't need Dark Knights or not Knights at all. Cloud Imperium is plenty able to defend themselves with hard and honest work. This game is being made, it will be released, and it will answer for itself.

There is nothing more to say. But I personally feel I must insist this picture, thread and post is removed without delay. Inappropriate yes, and frankly just stupid. This could cause very real and very serious trouble, regardless intent.

And where did the idea come that it didn't crash as much anymore? I watch badnewswhatever for like ten minutes and 9 minutes was crashing or getting server full messages or it completely disconnecting him over and over.

Too bad about all those crashes if you try to do this yourself. :)

This is obviously some joke/fluke because I watched BNB do this exact thing and the ship kept spitting him out like a watermelon seed over and over through the roof and after five or so tried he killed himself and it crashed.

I don't understand why the White Knights are busting a gut over this, they know that 'Goons Ruin Everything' but never learn apparently.

Octopode, DickWulf, Seraph and Karl: save your energy, you cannot defeat us because we are legion. We're either going to nitpick your dream game to death and burn your thousand dollar jpegs to the ground - or the game will be released and if it's anywhere near mediocre, a goon fleet will pick it up for $15 in a sale and burn your thousand dollar pixels to the ground instead. So far all your tears are free, maximum entertainment for minimum goon investment.

Also someone said there are no kids in Fallout 4 but I completed a quest called 'Kid in a Fridge' the other day so I beg to differ :chord:

Something hit me while lying in bed last night: multi crew ships might be the worst idea ever in practice. The idea on paper sounds incredible. Grab your mates, hop on a Connie and zoom around the galaxy causing havoc. Amazing. Now, put it into a game. Everyone hops on and someone grabs the controls and you've off! You aren't flying the ship, but you've got you buds all around. No worries. Quantum drive kicks in. Whoa! This is amazing! You all feel a sense of wonder as the verse folds around you. Where should we go? That's like asking what toppings to get on your pizza. Everyone pipes up. Lots of opinions and you want to hunt pirates, but your idea is shot down. Cargo run. Oh. Ok, well not your fave but whatever. Quantum drive kicks in. You chat up your friends. You talk about how exciting this all is and the possibilities. You wander the ship. You've see it 1000 times but it still kinda is cool. You walk to the bridge and talk to the pilot. He's nice, but busy. Doesn't really have time to chat as he tries to land. You stare out the window. Everything looks crisp and lovely. A jav zooms by. Whoa! You feel the craft touchdown and you all exit. You spread out. Cargo is gotten but a few of your mates linger. You tell them it's time to go. They persist in mucking about the station. You stand on the dock near the ship and wait. Let's go! I want to hunt pirates! After ten minutes of waiting and kind of wandering around they all get back to the ship. Finally! You are off. You ask to pilot but someone jumps in the cockpit and that's that. Oh well. Maybe next time. You jump into trouble. Pirates!! Yes. Oh man this is going to be great! Someone hops in a turret. Dang, maybe you'll get in the other one. Yes! You are in. Time to inflict laser death! Protect the ship. Protect the cargo!! The smaller ships zoom around you and it's hard to get a good angle. You ask the pilot to turn a bit so you can fire more than once every 20 seconds or so. Everything is moving too fast. The Connie pivots as you try to target causing you to miss widely. Over and over. Then the pirates are above you and you have no shot. Your friends yell as the hull goes critical. You move out of the way and let another take over. Same issues. Your ship smokes and alarms blare. Then a bright light. You are dead. You wake up and run for the hanger to meet up again. They want to do the cargo run again. Ok. But you want revenge! Voted down again. As you wander the ship and stare at the walls listening to your friends tease you and you turret skills, you see a idris jump and wonder if you shouldn't just grab one of the dozen or so ships in your hanger and solo some missions and just do what you want to do. You push those thoughts deep inside and smile. "Yeah, I guess I suck at shooting. I'll let you guys handle it next time." They tell you not to even think about asking to pilot until you "get better at sc". You die a little inside.

:(.

Again it sounds great on paper. In reality game devs assign those ship positions to NPCs. Can you imagine mass effect with all human players? Yeah you stay in med bay while I pilot and have fun. If someone sneezes we'll call you. Fun!
