My command, your wish is



spreading FUD i see, star citizen isn't about holding your handing and providing you with "scripted content" like thoughtfully designed areas swarming with enemy npcs. the star citizen is a more sophisticated gamer and seeks emergent gameplay so quit being a content locust and try moving a soda machine from one port to another like the faithful

Awesome!

You can detect an object emitting 20W from a distance of 18 billion kilometers right now. That's what the Voyager probe is putting out right now.

Sure, but we know where to look.

Consider all the junk we've missed even though its brighter than that often exactly because there's so much to detect. As much as I enjoy pointing to Project Rho, they've kind of forgotten about the opposite side of the spectrum: detecting something not against the blackness, but against the noise of space, and in this case, especially if it's a pretty short and static phenomenon.

As someone pointed out, it's a pretty silly idea compared to just having a plain old distress beacon.

LOL!! Holy poo poo. They delayed it on purpose!? It all makes sense now.

quote:

Looks like they are just accepting that it's best for marketing to release right before Gamescom. No other reason for the delay as it seems to not be content related, but more wanting to spend extra time on bug fixes and polish for optics during the event.

Anthem is going to release long before star citizen's planetside is worth playing, and it's going to set a new standard that star citizen will never, ever be able to approach.

Calling it now, masses of backers will be playing Anthem instead of Star Citizen when that game launches.

So these days all CR has to do is make a "smug" face and show stuff that's pretty much identical to what they didn't release last year, and that's enough for those people to declare some sort of victory? What did they win? They still do not have their 'game' or any sizeable part of it, let alone a vertical slice, and the longer these cyclical screenings of old outdated tech that CIG still can't master, even as we speak many other dev companies are developing tech far more advanced than this and on loving consoles lol, the worse the fallout is going to be when the penny drops that the game needs at least another 10 years of dev and a much better engine and there's no money left to pay for either.

I've saved that CR "smug face" for future editing, when I get to emblazon it with the legend "This is the smug face of a lying conman". I suspect that day is fast approaching too.

Slouched posture (lazy), arms crossed on table in front of him (by his shoulder position, indicates withholding info), head turned slightly right, away from the camera (avoidance), eyes facing to the left (left is almost always indication of mistruthful thoughts), eyebrows raised, likely on purpose and not unconciously (which indicates feigning self congratulatory expression), head tilted forward and down (shame), mouth pursed and tight lipped (ignored as no indication he'd finished or just started talking). If he maintaind this posture while delivering news then well...

All good signs backers. (My other half's analysis, she does that body langauge investigation thing at her work and she's rather good at it)

It's real, it's of a medical officer that doesn't exist in the game yet because the game doesn't exist. She has a rare condition where her thumbs get cold and she has to wear thumb gloves and, by the looks of her eyes, smoke copious amounts of ice.

Pretty much what's written on the tin - they went to a British bank and got a loan for a few million pounds and put up the entire assets of the company as the collateral. Their bigshot financial guy got online on a Sunday to explain that this was perfectly normal and ordinary and just them hedging against currency movements as companies do. To everyone else it looks like a payday loan to bridge the time between now and when the next batch of tax credits comes in because they are broke.

A distress beacon is basically a flare in a different spectrum. The thing about the noise of space is that, as far as I know, it's fairly static (pun not intended). The stuff being emitted from stars and whatnot thousands of light-years away doesn't really change in the interval that something would theoretically be scanning the sky. I could be wrong though, but if you're scanning deep space every hour or whatever I figure you'll notice something changing like that.
