    Guys... Star Citizen thread is not this thread.

    Indeed, i should have had more coffee before posting about it. The reddit sub went to town on me for posting it there. Fair enough, although only one or two politely corrected me. Most simply started with the name calling. A shame, there are some good people on that sub, but some very nasty hateful people as well. But meh, same on any forum. However, my reddit block list has grown significantly from that thread :D

    Ok, just discovered why you shouldn't take such things at face value. He was talking about other games where you get to see them when they are almost finished. Since we are being skeptical about production of SC, its worth remembering to be skeptical about all sources of information. ;)

    Sorry OP, very biased opening post there. How about....

    Its the same sort of stuff they show gaming magazines as well. Remember how pre gamescon one or two mags talked about seeing a really nice 3.0 that was going to be released soon(tm). Yeah, where is that demo they saw? Certainly not what is avaiable or will be avialable to players.

    Wait and see OP. Enjoy the freebies. I doubt FD will give any information about what is coming in over a year just yet. Maybe autumn next year they will spill the beans.

    OP, if your system map is taking more than a second or two to open i suggest you raise a ticket with FD. My system map opens in about 1 second for most systems. 2 seconds tops.

    If the game is practically finished in its 3.0 state, then the poor backers are going to be dissapointed. But i think this is probably just part of the new narrative to get 3.0 and beyond declared as a released product so they can shore up the refunds.

    My 8yo son got his own account, found platinum on the planet and got promptly destroyed by pirates in his freewinder. First he was afraid of playing ever again, then he started plotting his revenge. He is now in a keelback with turrets and a fighter, needs some combat practice still. He loves it.

    Yeah, I imagine it would be easy to let you customize paint jobs with color sliders, like Euro Truck Simulator already does

    Correct, any kill missions from the same faction only increment the oldest mission, until it is finished, then the next one - working as intended. If you get kill missions from two different factions for the same target, you fulfill both at the same time (not possible with massacre missions, but possible for pirate hunting)

    I can kill anything in a CZ with my Eagle ... with 30 lys jump range it is not so bad to fly over there too. Just to busy this week unfortunately (fighting in other CZs in my Eagle :D).

    Very nice. Now add loot chests! :P I'd like to do that for our group, but i'm afraid our CMDR Jankules would bankrupt us within the first week. :D

    Walking around in games is fine if walking around is the focus. Once you make flying around the main part, then walking is mainly a side issue, and sometimes even an annoyance if forced (eg: SC waking up in bed, walking to the bridge, etc). However, i still want it for ED, if only for the standing around looking at the landscape.... but i won't say that will make it a better game, just something i'd like to see.

    Indeed. When everyone was bashing on NMS, cbtrading remained positive. And eventually, a year or so after NMS released, it started slowly turning into a decent game by the look of things. Who knows, in a few years, SC might start shaping up to be a decent game as well, possibly even with a 1.0 release. Assuming SC ever makes release, assuming CIG can get the funds to finish it off. I'm still of a mind they will need half a billion to get the game to a state where they can say its approaching what CR wants... and i say approaching, because to get 100% what CR wants, i don't think the GDP of a large country would cover it.

    Agony_Aunt replied to a thread Pirating NPCs in PlayStation 4
    While i enjoy flying with a bounty, i find bounty hunters dropping in just as you have pulled a T9 full of LTDs out of SC a pain. The T9 might get away while you are dealing with the bounty hunter. In terms of my current bounty, i've now got Elite Anacondas coming after me.... i can't take one of those out and keep a T9 occupied at the same time. Hell, i can barely take out an Elite Anaoconda in my Combat Orca... my piracy Orca wouldn't stand a chance.

    Study mount is a good idea, but i don't think MCs are the weapon you should be using. I find cannons the weapon of choice for module sniping. Sturdy cannons with high yield effect are simply evil against modules.

    Mate, not sure if you saw my earlier post here.... Was wanting to apologise for just not turning up again last night when I took off. Also I saw you had sent me a farewell note via direct, which I only saw in the main menu. Where I was due to server/instancing/connection(?) issues last night. Didn't have the patience to wait for it to resolve so dropped out.
    Not my usual style, to be sure, and I will return to fill any takers. After all: it's for bourbon for c@@@@ sake! The greater good.
    Also wanted to say how much I appreciate you looking out for the less experienced players. Cheers mate
