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.

Any idea why these links never work with Tapatalk? For example this link jumps to Squadron 42 Dev progress watch thread message from 2017.

If I select ”open in Chrome” it opens the correct one.

yes, that was funny. Sadly I "predict" 14,000,605 more dollars could still be siphoned off by the CIG-ponzi from these last extreme smart-spite and sunk-cost backers before it all collapses.

LOL I agree with you since they appear be able to gloss over anything that happens before they can think rationally.

Sounds great if they get to go forward with discovery, I hope all the shell companies get pulled into this as well.

They have no choice. As Crytek said, unraveling the myriad of companies is the only way to know which one of them was party to the violations. Remember how the judge already ruled that RSI was party to the lawsuit after CIG objected. So for now, both CIG and RSI are party to it. I expect that F42 and the others will be too. That's what discovery is for.

Excellent write up I enjoy seeing you discuss the game technologies that you used and how they relate to CIG.
This was an excellent comment concerning sq42, considering what Chris had planned for sq42.


If they have yet to build the complete game world – or even a fraction of it – how then are they going to complete and release Squadron 42 in the short term?

Indeed. And this CitizenCon had more clues that the project was in serious trouble, than most realize. Just wait.

I updated my article with a section on the 2017 financial filings for RSI (UK). I was waiting to do it for both RSI and CIG (which is late), since F42 already filed. But since someone else had already done the leg work for RSI filing, I just used theirs.

Don't make fun so quickly. It'll come with Single Distance Field in the future!

So you remember that new Kraken (totally not scope creep though) ship from the Star Citizen event last week? Sure you do. It's so special that it's invite only to BUY it. And it's sold in waves (totally not kidding). The whale call just went out from CIG.



When I went to the sale it said something along the lines that more information was needed and I was not eligible. But reddit is still in overdrive over foip and being able to see your friend in the ship and click a button to bring him up the elevator. I was wondering also why anyone would buy it if ship purchasing is going in soon.  I really want to see what people are going to earn in terms of cr per hour as well. One max cutter build in EH is just under 900m, which if I really worked hard would take under 9 hours to accumulate. I'm betting Chris will make payment the only way to progress to large ships.
