All these years of building city tech, proc-gen tech etc, they really are not showing me anything that could not have been done for a lot less money with a better engine.

Completely agree. I wonder for those poor devs who'd been trying to push all that into the engine knowing it wouldn't work just because CR wouldn't admit his mistake like $180 million and 5 years ago, then doubled down on the ponzi shenanigans & trailer illusions to keep the siphoning going on (now far too late to course correct without admitting to bin burning $200m). As mentioned, some of them look "held hostage" in the round-the-verses' bits.

The biggest factor here for those people is that it's not easy to find work in the industry - especially in the UK. Regardless of what you're doing, good, bad or ugly, it's always a paycheck.
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.

Yes. Remember my analogy about paying for a Golden box, and getting a cardboard box without a lid? That would be it.

With a turd in it.

Odd. On the roadmap, yhe 3.6 branch shows no work done to 'Ship AI: 3D Pathfinding V2'. However on the Squadron 42 roadmap the exact same A.I workload shows it at 50%. I thought these two projects share the same tech more or less.

Similarly, the new flight model is on both roadmaps. It is marked as done for SC but has been unchanged at 122/144 in SQ42 for the last two weeks or so.

That's because they haven't merged it into SQ42 yet because they're probably not done with it.

Star Citizen Announces Alpha 3.5 coming this weekend!

As I wrote back in Sept 2018, of the 106 starsystems promised, not a SINGLE one is completed.

I had not payed to much attention what was being cut but that is crazy. But no worries they are already making thank you threads on the female models. I posted this whole list in the official thread thanking them as well.

Also don't forget what CIG qre fixing in April. No more $0 CCU upgrades. So basically if you buy a ship and CIG develop a superior version of it and you want to CCU, pay up. Fund the dream whilst getting screwed over. Suck it veteran backers!

Yeah, that's the latest controversy now.

There will be an awful lot of people that think this is reasonable.

To newer Backers the "game" is already released. 

CCU is new DLC.

Older Backers have already consumed and need to pay up like the rest of them.

Its hard to remember since the the lack of fidelity in the after pic is so hard to believe /jk. You called it and its so easy to see now how the manipulated so much over the years. No surprise some dreamer is in there saying this is just the first past. I tell people on reddit to wait till they hit tier 20 to 100 all the time.
