In case u were wondering, the use of these "levels" in this presentation, is further evidence that seamless space<->planets is probably NYI

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.

Ooops, seems everyone on Reddit is under the impression that 3.0 has arrived early  :lol:  :vince:

https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/6v3c1g/so_i_guess_theyre_playing_a_30_build_at/

LOL!! Yeah.  :laugh:

How can you possibly justify that the first people to touch any version of 3.0 outside of CIG are Members of the gaming media, who have spend 5 years doing their very best to destroy SC, and people who payed for a ticket to gamescom and a flight to Germany, and not people who backed the Project?
How can you justify that people with zero investment in SC get to Fly a Nox around on a planet before people who Backed the Game and own a Nox?

Why is a press build unfit for people who very specifically backed for alpha access? CIG is a company that exists because of the goodwill and trust of the people who gave them money, they would have no long term to think about if not for the backers they continuously snub in the name of "attracting new backers".

lmao the shitizens immediately downvote both of those posts.THAT'S why the media gets to play new things first; because cr is at least smart enough to realize his cult will attempt to silence anyone whom complains about it. The sick aspect of this is that a lot of the sc cultists have burned bridges with RL friends over sc and have such an emotional investment with the community (which have become their family for all intents and purposes) that they don't really see any meaning outside of their online cig-life and that's enough to keep them toeing the line.

edit: incredible to see the shitizens trying to justify this as a good thing "because marketing". There is one thing that sc hasn't lacked over the years and that is marketing.

It's actually worse than that. Basically, by doing this, CIG is communicating that new backers are their priority, not the old backers whose money they already have. And they need to reach those new backers via the media. And the way to do that, is by giving media access to builds that even existing backers don't have.

Meanwhile, over there at SA, the Goon enclave where we plot the demise of Star Citizen.


Quote
Just remember: Star Citizen 3.0 features:
5 new landable planets
New moons, space stations, and asteroid belts
Trading
Cargo Transport
Piracy
"Mercenary"
Bounty Hunting
Diverse NPC Actions
Day And Night Cycles
Increased Mission Complexity
Economy Driven Missions
Item 2.0
StarNetwork 1.0
Subsumption 1.0
Mission 1.0

And they demo'd all of this in a live, totally unscripted gameplay preview in August of last year. So whatever they show at this new convention, after one full year of development, is guaranteed to have all of that stuff in it or they wouldn't be calling it 3.0, right?

Amazingly, while reddit is fighting a war against goon trolls and their FUD, the top comments on the paywalled Spectrum forums are almost all angry and salty as fuck.

Examples:
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/3-0-version-playable-at-gamescom-confirmed
The top comment is [Deleted] 2nd is a picture of the cult spaceship from The Simpsons falling apart.

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/i-was-away-for-5-months
"Come back in a year or two, we will have 1,000 concept ships and no gameplay."

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/let-s-plan-this-now-3-0-large-scale-planetary-war
"Aye. It shall surely be remembered in the SC history books! The great 24 people War of 3.0! Lasted 6 minutes. Caused a server crash. The end."

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/melt-or-money-gamescom-edition
"No fresh money until something substantial is being delivered. I've been waiting for almost two years now to justify spending more, yet CIG failed to follow up on 2.0."

Good job with the misdirection campaign you guys.

OMG - BoredGamer has gone into full salesman / zealot mode, basically selling Star Citizen to new players. He manages to effuse over SC for over 20 minutes!! :


From the Text:
Quote
Squadron 42 is the Single Player Campaign and the Spiritual Successor of Wing Commander. The Idea is the game is maximum pretty and seamless... NO LOADING SCREENS. It's currently in the Alpha of it's open development with the hope that SQ42 will be released Q4 2017 - Q2 2018.
    :lol:

Best Quotes from the video:
Quote
00.59: Probably some of the best character creation that's ever existed, when it comes down to the fidelity and the detail of the headscans and the faces
Quote
15:10 On planets we'll see procedural cities ... allowing for massive city planets to exist in game and look pretty good
Quote
16.18 A major planned mechanic is now base building
?? is this the big reveal / gamechanger ??
Quote
21:00 I'm expecting the game to go into beta mid 2019

Try telling that to Sandi Gardiner.

FYI, they removed that page following my 2015 expose. Here is what the last capture looked like from 2013.

"I won't be buying again until 4.0. I have a Cutlass Black, Hornet Tracker, Prospector and Aurora LN. That's enough until Beta. Whenever that will be? Hope i'm not a pensioner by then."


I love the way they think that a jpeg is something they have (worth/actually what they paid for)

Yeah, he's been like that for awhile now. It's hilarious.

Oh dear - the Space Engineers guy gets to play with new features at GamesCom which the backers don't get access to. Some of the responses:

Doesn't it warm the cockles to see someone employed by a different company in the same field as CIG cheering them on?

https://mobile.twitter.com/Xocliw/status/899938260264288256

Isn't that nice? Stripped down 3.0 it may be but still exciting for those playing it. A cryengine map the size of a small planetoid is impressive. No other game has come close to a cryengine map that size.

Looking forward to seeing Chris' big surprise on Friday. Will we get your predictions before then Derek?

Yes, I get a warm fuzzy glow when a competitor gets to play more of the game than the backers who've enabled the game's creation.  :lol:
