CIG is claiming we're still in the green parts, but who knows? Since too much misanthropie is unhealthy, it's better to believe we're deep in the red zone and the tracker is a lie anyway. The longer this shitshow goes on, the more misanthropie you need to swallow the idea that people could be really that stupid and continue to throw tons of money at Star Citizen.

Therefore, to keep your mental health in order, it becomes more and more necessary to will yourself into believing the tracker is a lie, since the alternative becomes more and more unbearable. :colbert:

As to the truth of it in an objective sense, the tracker is probably all kinds of hosed, for all we know it could be tracking the proliferation of vermin in backers' households or some dumb poo poo like that.

Well that looks like a painfully generic implementation of gameplay mechanics that were tired a decade ago. So right on course for Star Citizen.

Like most ideas CR/Devs have had about Star Citizen, the PvP slider was an idea they came up with on the spot to placate the PvE players, without thinking through how it would be balanced or actually work in the game - so they've pulled the plug on it IIRC.

Other famous CR ideas that have been stated here and there, but CiG have no idea how it will actually work in the game, let alone the implementation.

Agent Smithing function.
9:1 NPC:Player ratio.
Each random NPC has their own lives and are like real players. Don't just randomly appear/disappear
NPC crews are fully independent with wants/needs.
Living breathing economy that is ran by NPC's and can be dynamically affected by players.
Massive 200+ people fleet battles, with full crews aboard each ship with magic instancing.
Character aging and some sort of permadeath features. (I cant wait until people rage against this)

All this coming right after they work out the Flight Model and Controls.

Their inability to make a flight model that doesn't suck or come even remotely close to what was pitched is what let me know this game will never be what it was sold as, and years of crobbling have only solidified that conclusion.



They can't even make the most basic part of a space sim function in a way that doesn't make them a joke or liars, plus as a company are too stupid to realize 'they had one job' and are failing miserably at it. My brain initially shifted into skepticism with cr's first ridiculously long
run of mocapping. That set the tone and stage of everything that has followed, only now there's so much more and it's so much worse.

Why are Americans and British so fascinated with German compound words? There's really nothing that amazing about it, it's just like alot of other languages where you can, theoretically, make a compound word out of anything if you were inclined. Like "Fremdschämen" literally is just the words for "stranger" and "shame" combined into one, so it's literally "stranger shame". Norwegian among others works the same way, while English doesn't. Though I guess the Germans have been especially industrious about recording what is thought to be clever uses of that functionality, so they can have that.


I wouldn't really compare it to Deadwood. It's not really a western show, and neither was the movie a western movie (though I would say the show doesn't share that much with the movie apart from the title and the concept of robot people going haywire). Anyway Deadwood was great.


I think it's fascinating to English speakers because Germans have words for things we either don't acknowledge or don't even have concepts of or as a society.

Pretty easy to win an argument when you can just stand there while your opponent repeatedly owns themselves.



I thought the real metric is word count though, and (sorry Derek) less is more. With this in mind who won the first battle, Derek and his July 2015 blog or crobbler with his Oct 2015 blog?
