 :emot-bravo:
To implement a prison at this time is such a brilliant idea, i can only applaud whoever came up with the idea to implement it and not have a "click here to get released" button.  :emot-laugh:

Also brilliant with the Space Cows and Whales and whatnot. Sooo "These things stick to easily" - yet the guys repeatedly use the name they don't want to stick. Then they show a creature concept of the whale which features a text about whaling and go into how they dislike whaling for them and would like whale tours.
Makes me wonder if i should them other brilliant ideas... like space rats (erm call em Crrats), which will steal food and stuff from your ship, unless you lay down crrats traps. But not killing traps, no that would be cruel. They'd rather be put in Crats prison were you can train them to make smart little tricks, like standing to a podium looking somewhat like a human moving their snout(?) to look a bit like certain game devs promising stuff and such  :emot-laugh:

Best development to watch really, such a big entertainment factor. Thanks to you guys distilling all news down.

Perhaps the idea is to eventually let players use real money to buy their way out of jail? Just a thought, especially if ship sales slow down.

Pretty sure they've thought of it.
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.

Notable Changes for May 1st, 2020
Due to a backend task to update naming conventions surrounding upcoming patches, the task counts on the Roadmap won’t change this week. Task count aside, there were no notable changes/moves this week.

All cards in the Alpha 3.9 Column have marked as “Released” on the PU Roadmap.

That’s all for this week! Join the discussion on Spectrum.

edited. no need to quote images as it's a loading headache on mobile

New roadmap with a ton of stuff removed or delayed


So they decided the highlights of Body Dragging, Elavator Panel Updates and New Babbage Shop Additions weren't deserving of the 4.0 moniker :D

They are almost half way through Q2 now, Q3 is already gutted and there is little progress on it, despite StAgGereD dEveLopmEnt.

I the fact they can't even get Q4 on there speaks volumes, the rest of the year is looking like a content drought. It is amazing that they are apparently taking in record amounts of funding, all for the part of the game, the PTU, that is clearly way down the list of priorities behind the ToW Battlefail clone and "Answer the call [current_year++] Squander 54". This dumpster fire is going places haha.

That roadmap says everything you need to know. Ignore the funding because that tempest is coming to a head soon enough.

Yeah, what is going on at CIG?

I'm sure they'll try and blame this on Covid but all their staff can work from home without much loss of productivity.

You'd think they would fill the roadmap with empty promises to make the zealots happy, so what are they up to?

 Remember when backers testing the PTU pleaded to CIG NOT to release 3.9 to the live servers? CIG should've listened!!!

And tonight they've shut down the PTU, saying it won't go live. So I guess all is going great!  :cheesy:

On Wednesday they shut down the PTU without moving it to live. Now they've announced a free fly event starting May 22nd. This is going to be funny.  :laugh:

Is there supposed to be a game somewhere in that roadmap?
