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.

So the latest mini-ATV got me thinking:


Firstly, big LOLs to the use of FOIP for version 3.3 - as though your CPU/GPU and the servers didn't already have enough work to do they just want to throw more at it.

But, it got me thinking. Star Citizen, the best damn space sim ever to be made, and the final word in all games - has always been Chris's dream since he was young. From his point of view he will only tolerate the very highest fideilty for his perfect space sim, only the best graphics are permissible. The fact that the technology cannot make it work and the whole concept is fundamentally devoid of gameplay (and fun) doesn't really register as a concern. In many ways, seeing the video of the Spanish gamers doing mass battles on a planet surface almost validates the Chris Roberts vision - never mind the network lag and bugs. I'm sure Chris will feel vindicated, that his vision for a virtual universe where you can do anything and go anywhere has almost been created, albeit on a limited scale, and full of bugs.

The sad thing is, when SC inevitably collapses, the zealots will see Chris Roberts as a visionary, whose ultimate dream was never fully realised. They'll just leave out the bit about him being and incompetent producer who over promised, severely under delivered, and profited hugely whilst doing so.

Wait, so the Vandul energy lance is basically the Staff weapon the Jaffa uses in Stargate?

You read that wrong. By ending June 2017, they had 284. By ending Dec 2017, they had 318. That's an increase of +34

Star Citizen backers usually don't notice nor care when people leave. They do when key people and faces do.

Matt Sherman, one of the well-known technical designers on the project departed last month. They only just noticed.

He was recently talking about the Mustang rework prior to his departure

Star Citizen just sent out the latest newsletter. Chris Roberts wrote a lengthy response to the P2W fiasco currently playing out.

50 client ground battle.

BEFORE (actual footage)


AFTER (lots of splicing, cutting of loading screens, jank, crashes etc)

Nothing says ACTION PACKED like pausing to scroll through countless menus on the wrist mobiglass. Do people really need to see their forearm then a delay then menus. It's the future, an eye motion should be able to trigger this without any pausing but Robbers has to insert his special vision, just like how players need to needlessly wait for the insurance to supply another ship (unless you pay Lord Robbers that is).

I guess sometimes it's the small things that irk me. I mean we all know the game is a buggy crapfest, thats a given but the crappy mobiglass that has to be inserted into everything just sucks moose cock. It's so distracting, taking away from the fidelity of the never ending crashes.

Truthfully, even after the editing all the janky stop motion of the players on the ground looks so ameturish. The shooter aspect of the game looks worse then many free games on steam. The real unedited footage is hillarious. Dude tries to land his Aurora and gets pushed off into a building by a glorified golf cart floating in air and it looks like kindergarteners playing with plastic toys, no explosions or damage to be seen and the golf cart still floats midair. WTF nearly $200 million for this? He had btter call this pre alpha because it sucks.

This game handled space combat so nicely. Shattered Horizons.
Sadly it was not a commercial success as it required some top notch hardware at the time (sounds familiar)( I had just bought a hot I7 with a whopping 12 gigs of ram, a lot at the time) and 0 gravity combat is much more difficult than COD. I'm not even sure if you can get a copy of this any more. You pretty much are stuck playing with Bots these days as few people play anymore. Just an example of  what COULD have been done, or actually should be done but Roberts is too much of a numbskull. This was like 8 or 9 years ago, imagine what is possible these days, but not for star citizen.

Thx for all the links, I would love to see you refactor the incoherent rambling, word salad into layman's terms removing the Chris fiction.
