yeah, but they *totally* switched to Lumberyard though

"Having so many bespoke changes would make integrating changes from Lumberyard very difficult, if not impossible in some cases. There would need to be a careful evaluation of whether the gain outweighed the effort required or it would be easier/better to develop our own solution. As far as I am aware we haven't integrated anything new from Lumberyard."  CIG Lead Dev

Even in the crash dump file the product file number is cryengine 3.8. Speaks volumes. Not to mention the system control logs and spinlocks show that it's still cryengine.

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.

The boat pic is so awesome I'm really surprised to see it not moderated or the thread gone.

Shillizen effort still going on to attempt to deflate ED: Odyssey, an example on both a reddit post and yt post. Same shill guy posting at first, ED has "good flight model", "sound", blah, etc, then attempting to stick it by calling ED's galaxy a "tech demo". So maybe that's more dreadful news at the moment to CR and his mod crew at the moment before they get to put the fire out of the boat pic thread. Meanwhile, the ponzi dumpster fire is getting trailer-hammered again by the "new squadron 42 trailer released",  :emot-laugh:. (https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen_refunds/comments/h9id9i/new_squadron_42_trailer_finally/)

Money laundering in Star Citizen

And yeah, this is precisely how (a big op) most of us were looking at this. Though the angle about actually doing it at the scale of having to setup a “blind” company didn’t come into play. But think about it. This “game” has raised over $300m + $46m + $17.6m in investment. Over a 9 yr period. With NO shipped product. And - get this - during a pandemic period, have broken their own fundraising records. Sure, game companies are making money during this period, but not to this extent - and for a company with NO SHIPPED PRODUCT.

Dismissing an important detail here. You still need to find a buyer willing to buy the 1.000$ ship for the 800$, otherwise the whole laundering doesn't work in the described scenario.
And then again you could do this on every resale site for virtual goods. The real chokepoints here is the accounting in the source country (where does X get money to repeatedly buy good x), the transaction channels (banks - why is Y flowing so much money to Z) and to a lesser degree the seller of the good that gets resold - which got explained in the post.

But sure enough criminals are using such where possible. I mean wasn't it the FBI that involved Blizzard because their virtual monies were used for criminal transactions - gold reselling.
