Space football stretch goal plz

Edit: that actually seems like a perfect CR spontaneous promise to cause his programmers to tear their hair out. Guys let's have an in game sports network so players can watch other players play sports sub games live while they fly their fully physics modeled autism chariots around 100 handcrafted star systems.

Why would anyone watch football when they already have santaball?

I think porting their game from CryEngine to the exact same version of CryEngine will be good for Star Citizen.

serious question, was the in-game clothing store part of any of the stretch goals or proposed features, or did cig just take it upon themselves to add it to the scope?

They're still adding stretch goals.

Keep in mind that throughout history those owners and or controllers of the the existing infrastructure always would oppose changes which could unseat their control... thus the media programmed society to follow such precedents. This means that it is ALWAYS uncomfortable to most to think about things that change their very thin margin of security found in being a believer of main stream myths such as a flat world, 35 mph is deadly, sun's rotation around the earth, hyperloop being impossible, etc. No surprise at all people will oppose this until we have a single family of mankind that will ALWAYS welcome improvements to our way of life and be excited even, to see them come into existence ! Humanity could just look at history and realize it is totally irrational to assume we are at the pinnacle of technology. Science without those funding one narrow version or another, automatically accepts all provable technology and readily encourages anyone and everyone to come up with innovations based on new discoveries or modes of transportation for example.

One more. Ridiculous mechanic is that your ship replacement time will vary because they need to simulate the materials and if your autism chariot is made up of special rare autistic metals then tough luck you will need to wait longer.

Also those spaceship parts are manufactured in player owned factories where you have to manage your NPC employees to keep up production. Hire too many cheap uneducated NPCs and your going to get hit with delays.

Funny, in your own words your company was bleeding money (both yours and others that were given to you), enhancing just how desperate you were to sell off the rights to BC3000 and 2 other games. No wonder why - Take Two bled money and needed to recoup what they could. 618k is not chump change after all.

"My company, 3000AD, has been operating at a loss since it's inception in 1992. All my money, that of my mother's and indeed development funding and expenses from three publishers were sunk into this game....
To this day, I have people working for me part-time without ever having received more than expense payments and knowing fully well that we were probably investing in wasted time...."


Sigh. Who cares if Take Two made 15% of it's profits from your title in one year. They still bled capital for each year you didn't release it.

But, how does this relate to SC? I just don't understand how - coming from where you did - you have any authority to say what CIG does with their crowd-funded money (hint: you don't).

I'm glad you could get into the doxxing spirit that this thread was built on.

This goes so far, that they want gamemasters that can start events. They want news broadcasts about current events even with live-mocap. That is his ultimate dream for the game.

The fact that there is no publisher to scope it down or force it out the door, and that it seems able to keep scope creeping forever by selling JPEGs is really what sets it apart from every other pipe dream project though. Everyone has a story about the one time their boss tried to make a mario kart game clone with isometric RTS mechanics, but Star Citizen is just a league above (below?) that.

Are you saying I might not be able to mocap myself as I broadcast live from my news ship about the latest procedurally generated mission events, as was promised 2 days ago?

I haven't really watched their awful videos since 10FTC got cancelled. Did Lando get demoted to a paid streamer, and Ben is now an unassigned employee?
