Star Citizen Discussion Thread v11

Was a sound engineer...now doing flight related stuff in the vehicle experience team for Ci¬G ;)

Watch the vid...
Got me there :sneaky: but no, life is too short to really watch it!

When I flicked through to see if I recognised the guys face, it said "Senior Audio Programmer" under his name, before the bit I obviously didn't watch about making flight "immersive!!"

Is he actually changing the flight model? I thought Chris was personally coding the new .... ahahaha, sorry.

I reckon this means he's responsible for making the flight stuff sound great, and nothing to do with the behaviour of said vehicles.

OTOH, I haven't bought into the vision™, so I cannot understand game development. :p

Nah, he won't be changing the flight model, it was a tongue in cheek remark...but the work from the vehicle experience team have certainly made it a lot better from the cockpit side than it was...adding headtracking and the revised camera work they've put in certainly adds a lot to the experience.

Nope...he is partly responsible for the cockpit experience...adding headtracking etc and nothing to do with sound at all ;)

Someone else that can't be bothered to watch a video before typing an opinion on something they know nothing about. I expected a better effort from this section of the forum...I mean, c'mon guys...it's not reddit :D

It's going to be Carrack hell come 3.8.2 hitting live... considering they've sold more Carracks than they have Freelancers already. I don't know of any concierge or mid level backer who doesn't proport to having one...
Raises hand
Mid level backer here, couldnt care less now about new ships. All i want is a game in which these ships could fly... with proper gameplay, not just a 3D engine demo.

Yeah, to be fair having been RUTHLESSLY SHAMED into watching the damn thing ...you are to blame for this ... it does seem he specifically asked to take on cockpit experience work, as opposed to sound. And they thought - damn, this guy is older than all of the rest of us, who are 12, so go for it!

Still, I still claim I was right - his job is still "Senior Audio Programmer" 😌
 
We might get a decent flight model after all then :D
I thought it was interesting how they danced around the subject of the flight model for, whilst they spoke at length about the in-seat experience, where you look and so on, I couldn't help but think that they must be touching the flight model, or at least 'enhancing the feel of it'.... ...ahem.

In any event, the video was interesting and some of what was shown looked very cool, so let's just hope that they can eventually make an enjoyable game out of it.

As things stand, I'll stick with my four figure investment of $00.00 until I see the Steam and GoG reviews - I'm not trying to be too facetious here, it's just that I won't consider SC/SQ42 'released' until sold through another platform - and this may be a long wait.
 
Latest Inside SC...

Real mixed bag isn't it? I like they they're improving the 'Vehicle experience' - at first I thought vehicle = ground vehicles, but it was all about the ships, and seemed good (if basic) stuff. The Bio shader and re-entry work looks good too, ED should take note of them please :D The stuff about the ship designs highlights how much work is involved in that - makes sense that it takes a long time - almost like it takes so much time there is none left to fix things like doors killing you ...

But then ... boxing rings and prison pods ... BDSSE
 
Mole said flight related (which is what the guy is doing). Did you not watch the video either :)

Good sound maybe, he's a sound engineer.

As Yogi clearly says in the video (again), he's helping with the head-tracking, not the flight model.

Did you see him in his glider? As he clearly stated he is on the vehicle experience team, part of which is head tracking. Really - watch the video, go on you know you want to ;)

Edit: You only need to watch the first half - the second half is about other stuff (y)
 
You'd think we'd all have better things to do lol.

But I'm right :sneaky:

And so is Stuart. Its the "in cockpit experience" he wanted to get into it seems, the "immersion". I'm pretty sure they have someone else who was specifically charged with changing the flight model, after the previous guy left?

Maybe they can combine the face over ip with the head-tracking gimbals and fire weapons when you gurn at an enemy?
