This one figured it out. The rest, not so much. Yet  :D

Oh wait, that's nuthin'. Sources are telling me - flat out - that 3.0 is still 4-6 months out if they want to fix it properly without doing a premature release like they did with 2.0. They may even delay it to CitizenCon if push come to shove.

Notice how a bunch of previously unseen items have automagically appeared in the latest schedule? It's almost as if they have an internal dev schedule that's not reflective of the public facing one.  :allears:
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.

I've never done a thing with that whole Reddit, but I've started looking around at bit at the SC and the DS one over the last couple of days. The fun part is that even those who are trying to voice a reasonable opinion, they get the shit kicked out of them immediatly. As soon as a statement or question even kinda hints on something negative about SC, they're treated like scum. And the counterarguments, man, what a fucking bunch of total idiots.

Do you think there is a hidden feature in 3.0 that they don't tell us about as a surprise? Yeah, sure, that's it  :doh:
Is 3.0 the end of alpha and the start for beta? Yeah, sure, that's it  :doh:

Brilliant. Opinion on Derek: Yawn. Repeating the same nonsense every week doesn't make it true. Come up with new material already. That applies more to CIG and their weekly schedule than to Derek  :D

If you seriously think that is the current state of the excellent work (voiced as Joey in his famous "psychiatrist" scene) they're doing at CIG, by God, by more JPEGs. Hell, buy them all. Go bankrupt on them so you'll never even can touch a computer and visit the Internet ever again.

The world is full of thick and lazy people.

One reason human progress isn't as fast as it could be.

Luckily, they can play SC 2.6.3 forever and ever in offline mode. That'll be fun, running around all alone in that large universe empty piece of space.

Guys, when CIG has collapsed, use the VMWare Converter to clone your harddrive to a virtual machine. Use that VM - of course, make a snapshot first and disable internet access - to play SC for as long as you wish. Make several backup copies of the VM just to be sure. Because, you know, it'll be the only version of SC that you'll ever will be able to play. Buying a license for VMWare Workstation will be better spent money than anything you gave CIG.

Oh, I think this is the forum post if you want to support Chris. Do remember though that Chris appreciates your support the best when you're buying JPEG's from him. Talk, not so much. But give it a try...

And here is one about the delays. CIG is getting hammered on their own forum now as well and even the mods are leaving it there.

On point, except for one thing: he still refers to 3.0 as the „Jesus patch“… someone should tell him that it’s 4.0 now   :laugh:

Nah, it won't cost them anything if they use Oracle's VirtualBox VM.

- Install the OS into VirtualBox
- Download and install Star Citizen, or copy over a copy using VB's "shared folders" feature (it's in the separate Extension Pack)
- Save an original "snapshot"

From that point on, they can play it as long as they want because they can save their progress via snapshots.

Yes, but I'm trying to get some money out of their pockets. I learned that from Chris.

BTW, any thoughts about the EULA for SC? Did anyone read/check that thing?

I have an entire forum about it and the ToS

The whole ToS I followed, but can't remember anything about the EULA too.

Just a quick stroll down memory lane: not much has changed since August 2015

2 year later... SSDD of SSDY actually. But keep on funding CIG, way to go  :doh:

What if they all waited with buying anything new until after Games Com. Wonder if CIG could pay the August wages....

Just a couple of days left for the winner of the very popular referral contest. That contest had nothing to do with getting extra money from new players who afterwards could be milked further, no, of course not.
I'm guessing CIG hoped it would die quietly and go away, so maybe Derek can do a nice tweet about it? Just to stirr things up  :woop:

And now Chris gets a hit (in advance) for not being able to play his own game, with him being the great visionary leader of everything and more. So they noticed that too last year. The Shitizens are overhyping their own illusions to death now...

Sure but we don't know how much money and what other life support CIG have.

They could ride this out for enough months to get 3.0 out of the door and then we would still have the option of more jpeg concepts and then ultimately begging letters to save the project.

As DS keeps saying it is a wait and see.

The cash only sales, the UK loan and the referral contest clearly indicate to me that CIG is running out of money. If the 3.0 build is another disaster, I'm guessing concept sales won't be enough to keep CIG afloat.

If you have a staff of more than 400 people working over a year on a game and you keep on delaying and delyaing the release with arguments that you're still making it better (note that it is still alpha we're talking about) and then you put out a crappy build, you're done. So 3.0 has to be a decent build and they can't wait too long with it. It's taking them too long already, and the longer the delay, the better the Shitizens expect the release to be. It's a lose lose situation already.

Openly asking for more money after you claim to have received over 150m and promised a release 3 years ago for half that amount, nah, that is not gonna work either.

Chris is fucked and he knows it. He's trying to keep everything afloat whilst he's looking for a way out that won't put him and his partners in crime in jail.

CIG really DO think their core backers are complete morons. Which is why they keep fleecing them. Exhibit D
