In today's ATV @ 16:43

"There is one Sun in the galaxy, which will light all of the planets"

There goes the 110 starsystems.


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 find it hard to believe he didn't just misspeak on that one.

Guess misspelled/uninformed and they mean per star system :) ... and you know there is no way to have a single light projecting over this distance :)

I hope he mispoke because if there is only one Sun, that's not a galaxy, it's a star system.

In fact, the starmap shows that they have Sol starsystem. And Stanton system, which they are supposed to be building out, has its own star, Terra Nova.

Gives new meaning to the quote, "Well, if there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from." lol  :coolfish:

So the latest schedule report is out.

Things got pushed out another week. So the 3.0 release date is around 07/20/17 now it looks like. Seeing as they have pushed things out almost every week, with about 9 more Friday's to go, there is a chance that 3.0 could very well be pushed well into Aug, or maybe even Sept if they don't cut some things out.

The gem:

Quote
VOLUMETRIC FOG

The completion date has moved back due to unexpected issues with implementing the Volumetric fog awy from Lumberyard to work correctly with our systems.
ETA is 26th May (was 18th May)

So much for that engine switch taking days.

Since 3.0 lite's first schedule report on April 14th, the projected release date has been moved back from June 29th to (between July 6th and) July 20th.

Five weeks in and they're already one-to-three weeks behind (most likely three).  That's impressive planning, even for CIG.  :laffo:

If they continue at this spectacular production rate of five weeks forward, three weeks back:
  • By June 23rd, release pushed back to August 10th
  • By July 28th, release pushed back to August 31st
  • By September 1st, release pushed back to September 21st
  • By October 6th, release pushed back to October 12th
:toot: Star Citizen: 3.0 lite in time for CitizenCon :toot:

3.2 (3.0 full-fat, as promoted at last Gamescom for end of 2016) by CitizenCon 2018? :ohdear:

Ship-to-ship docking just got cut from the feature list (like Derek reported over a year ago), but backers didn't believe him at the time and now they're pissed.

Looks like some are now trying to justify it by saying 'we always knew that Roberts couldn't deliver on everything he promised!'

Comedy gold.

Oh wait. There's more coming. This is nuthin'. Did you read my latest article in the other thread about the network instancing?

@dsmart in your recent article, you mentioned that private servers are out? Tried searching for any news on that but came up empty. Could you provide a link?

Thanks!

Disco Lando mentioned that Private Servers are the last thing they will look into and that some of us will be probably dead before it will be released ...
On top of that ... with all this planned server cluster structure in an AWS cloud, it's pretty impossible to make it local, furthermore if you are planning to have local servers you need to think of them from day one ... you can not tack them on ...
