Well isn't Chris requesting complex systems actually his major problem?
Then again requesting complex system is the easiest thing in the world. Especially when your mind isn't hindered by any training in regards towards technical (and logical) limitations.

That certainly does seem the case.

Well it's no different from all the promises of drink mixer machines, actual working internal ship systems etc. Did you miss all those ludicrous promises made over the years? My favorite was that one where they were showing working missile tubes in a ship (that's not even in the game). So a complex flight dynamics system is par for the course. If you read JP's design doc on the IFCS system, you will see how ludicrously complex it is. Which is why it continues to have issues.

I always thought he was going over the top in spirit just to excite the whales and milk them for all they had. I did get time to skim through the doc, but this was the first time looking at and ifcs model. But with your response on the ifcs model from earlier it does not make much sense. With so many issues you have to be completely out of touch to request stuff like this while your house is burning down around you.

Was hilarious a few years listening to some of the shitizens talking about how they would pursue a career as in-game bartender and were totally serious about it

Citizencon is now behind a paywall! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Zelots are already defending it using Blizzard to justify their action, but the r/sc is up in arms. Oh this is too good!

Ready for CIG to come out with a 'clarification' when the salt avalanche turns out to be real.....

how detached from reality are they?  who would be surprised they did not sell out  .... people aren't taking a holiday in the middle of the week, spending like 1k to come and see a presentation in an expensive venue on what a game might be if it could be developed.

That didn't take long and they changed the keynote and closing to be free.

OMG those comments sucking up to Chris... They literally made me want to vomit.

TL;DR:
The event is three times the attendance and twice the cost (before streaming).
CIG was considering streaming only the keynote or streaming nothing.
CR wanted to stream it all, and do it professionally so they hired a team for "low six-figures."
So they decided to do the pass thing.

One change: The Keynote and closing will now be streamed for everyone. The rest still requires a pass.

I notice that refunds for (cash purchased) tickets are in the form of STORE CREDIT.

Once received, they really don't want to give any money back do they?

Yeah, it's absolutely amazing to me. I tweeted about this last night when I found out.

BREAKING NEWS!!

It appears as if CIG have finally reached the limits of hilarity.

The October CitizenCon is going to be paywalled.

I have reached out to my sources for confirmation because I simply don't believe they're this desperate for money. Wow.

Unlike previous years, they've had a hard time selling tickets this year. And the venue is going to set them back a cool $1M+. So unable to sell tickets, if true, this is their way of forcing backers to pay to watch the event if not attending.

God I hope this is true, and they go through with it; because the fallout would be epic. And we'd be set with lols right through the holidays.

Who am I kidding?

It's Star Citizen. There's always more; and it's always worse.

Yup. They're totally doing it.

I'm laughing so hard right now, I had to re-align my sphincter.

Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

They have goodies for everyone (that pays).

DIGITAL goodies!

Which conveniently, doesn't cost CIG anything.

When you've lost Montoya, you've probably lost the farm. I can't even stop laughing
