The way these clowns are begging for skins I am sure that if Robbers started selling sticker sheets akin to the graphics that could easily be stuck anywhere in Litlle Big Planet for free would be big buisness. He could sell sharks mouths, Pin up girls for side of the cockpit among other things to entice these fools.
Custom unit markings for Orgs. Surely a smash sales hit. Sell em now, never deliver. You are backing a project, not buying goods.

The whale milk must flow!

It is pretty hilarious how CR treats the people that have already given him millions in funding, given him an opportunity to start a multi-million pound development company, given him the opportunity to create his dream game. He has squandered it with a mixture of lies, arrogance, and incompentence, but he continues to receive cash from them and will milk them as hard as possible till the beast goes belly up.

When in game ship sales come (and I do believe they will) there is going to be an amazing backlash against the ridiculous grind to buy and maintain any vessel that is not a starter one, and CR will be sucking on the RL money for space-bux tit for all it is worth until he is forced to reduce the grind. Calling it now, it is going to be epic.

Presumably if you crash your ship trying to land it then you will need to do an insurance claim and wait for the requisite time for a replacement.

That is going to happen a lot.

How do they deal with people driving into your ship and smashing it to pieces ?

Any cursory analysis of how this game could work as an MMO comes back to issues like this before we consider any of the supposed gameplay that is essential to make it a game in the first place.

Nevermind waiting 5 minutes for a train..

Oh sorry Star Citizen. You have had too many crashes in the last evolution period. Sadly we must notify you that we an no longer cover you on your insurance claims for the remainer of this evolution.

"Hey wait a minute, I have LIFETIME Insurance"
 
We are sorry but due to limited recources RSI cannot cover an infinite number of repairs. If you carefully read your policy limits in our NEW TOS you will find that you have exceeded your limit and it will cost $400 dollars USD to replace your Stargazer. If you fail to act within the alloted duration the default action will transpire and you will recieve a new Aroura in it's place.
Have a spaceriffic day, Citizen!

"Wait one cotton pickin minute you scallywags, I PAID for this here Insurance"

We regret to inform you that your last offer has exceeded it's window of acceptance. You may pick up your new Aroura when you get to the nearest terminal Citizen.
Have a a Spaceriffic day, Citizen!

The Future, If it ever releases. I cant wait to see what the lines are like to pay the water bill or register you space vehicles every year. Inspections and space emissions too.

"Yeah, but Chris has been watching videos" [of RDR2]

More scope creep shenanigans.

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.

Do you really need to see your characters beard grow in your space combat game? (Paraphrased)

I would say that you do not... But then you already know that don't you.

The conversation would be perfectly reasonable if we were not so far in with so much spent and so little delivered of so many promises made.

Chris Robbers wants to sell you electric razors to deal with your beard. Think about it.  He can sell you mods to braid in beads to your beards like a real pirate. It will be a hot item for the whales.

Back in Oct when they showed Lorville at CitizenCon, I wrote an article explaining why it was all bullshit from the start designed to give backers a false impression of what was coming. CC is their biggest annual fundraiser, and every year they have pulled this very same stunt.

"It is a fully 3D level built in such a way that you canít just travel anywhere, land anywhere, enter buildings etc. Itís all a massive set piece designed to give the illusion of expanse. Thatís why they have restricted ďno fly zonesĒ even within the confines of the city. Backers who think theyíre getting GTA V, The Witcher, Assassins Creed etc, are going to be sorely disappointed. Now you see why the train is needed to link various parts of the ďlevelĒ because itís not designed to be open world"

Even in the 2017 presentation @16:34, croberts said:

"Not sure we're gonna let you actually get this close to these populated areas..but we'll let you guys do it"



Hurston from Build 3.3.5 PTU, when the server dies and the client can glitch through the no fly zone


Hurston from Build 3.3.5 PTU, complete with No Fly Zones surrounding the city




Hurston from CitizenCon 2018. FF to 26:55


Hurston from CitizenCon 2017. FF to 47:49


They even have a map:

It's the 2018 hail mary.

For an early access game in this condition, it's going to be all kinds of hilarious as more gamers who give a shit, try to check it out. That's how they lost the plot last year. Also note that 3.3.5 isn't even live.

They really think gamers who have a glut of new games to play are totally going to try and figure out how to switch to the PTU build.
