As a bona fide video game dev I can tell you that switching engines 4 years into development is always a *great* sign that things are proceeding on scheudle. Time to put my savings into ship jpegs!

they didn't really switch engines. They just repatched their changes to the same version of cryengine and gained a whole lot of networking tech. If they had switched to Unreal or something I'd be right there with you, Wiz. Next time take a little bit to do some research instead of going for the pithy one liner. It'll be more satisfying emotionally and professionally.

Fortunately, instead of having to do research I actually have the professional experience of doing engine switches, upgrades and branch reintegrations, and know exactly how much of a clusterfuck each of those is no matter how many claims of 'but they're forked from the same source!!' you make. Sure it's not *as* big a clusterfuck as switching engines entirely but I'll just be over here laughing cynically if you think it was a pain-free process.

Also, networking tech is not a loving RPG stat. You don't gain +1000 to your networking tech. It doesn't work like that. It has never worked like that. Middleware is only as good as your own ability to utilize it.

In all fairness--SQ42 providing the cash to allow the continued development of Star Citizen was the original plan. Back in 2012/2013--CIG would create SQ42, it would be be received to rave reviews. Millions of copies would be sold, CIG would become for-realz game development studio, and the cash would roll in.

The release of SQ42 was supposed to herald two other events: the alpha/beta for the Persistent Universe and, drum roll--ships no longer being sold for cash. Yeah, yeah--back in 2013, I thought for a little while CIG was going to stop selling ships for hundreds of dollars. I like to think I've matured as a person and a consumer since then...

What I'm taking away from the article is this:

Chris stating that money drying up for SC means they must make S42, then use that funding to finish SC.

I am led to believe that he is going on record saying that even with over a hundred million dollars, CIG does not currently have enough money to create Star Citizen and Squadron 42.

How much loving money do they want?

They're making 2 AAA (arguably AAAA) games. It was always the plan to have SQ42 bring in tons of money. This is not new info.

I think trawling through pages and pages of ten million word posts about star citizen to laugh at them is real weird, and that also following people through their twitters to make fun of their families and interior decorations is kind of hosed up. I guess it's not doxxing anymore but it's still weird as all hell.

Either way, please, don't constantly harass and follow people online because they had the wrong opinion of videogames. Don't doxx anyone, and don't send them any hateful messages.

He does seem smug as hell in most of his posts. Like insecure. I like paradox games. EU3 and EU4 taught me most of the geography I know.

Theres no need to be salty Wiz because someone else is doing something different. Stellaris isn't really anything like Star CItizen other than that it ostensibly takes place in space. Its a simple 2d board game.

I am pretty smug, but honestly Star Citizen is just kind of really funny. It's the perfect amalgamation of so many things that are wrong about the games industry, and whenever it's brought up in any gathering of game devs it's good for a few laughs and stories about terrible bosses.
