In the vid Yogi says he's helping with head-tracking, not the flight-model.
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.
;)
 
to be fair nope.
It is not even close of a real reentry effect that looks more like this:



not to mention that, at the reentry speed of SC ships there would be no heat effect since they are too slow.
I kinda miss the old re-entry effect...since it doesn't happen now albeit as naff and unrealistic as it was. The new stuff is better by far, so any improvement is good...be it 'realistic' or not.

Strange you posted an artists rendition of what looks like a flying saucer and then point to realism though :D

An unusually flat re-entry capsule creating a plasma shockwave is still leagues more realistic than the “bits will fall off, then it explodes” that would (but doesn't) happen if any of the SC vehicles travelled fast enough (which they don't) to create re-entry effects (which they do anyway, somehow) because CI¬G chose to make every single component as wrong as possible. :p

I'm not going to argue about realism, especially not concerned with Star Citizen...I only mentioned it was cool when it was there and that I liked it :D

Ci¬G removed it for the reasons Stuart mentioned...the implementation was a bit naff. I've heard though that the old re-entry effect still happens if you manage to go fast enough in an appropriate ship..I don't have anything that fast to test it.

Two fan made videos of different games...only one of them isn't completely fictional :D

Both have good music though...

Some Star Citizen imaginarium nonsense from a no-name fanboi ...


And my favourite Elite fan made video of all time by one of the great explorers in E-D, Crusina Luachra ...created in total on the Xbox version of Elite quite a few years ago.

because there aren't real ones, for obvious reasons. But that image is a NASA artistic representation of a probe (is the heat disk of a mars probe not a flying saucer) reentry on mars and they try always to be the most realistic possible based on physical computer simulations.

the ship would be surrounded by a luminous plasma rather than some fancy flames shown in SC. It would be more like in the artistic images released by space-X.
But all this talking is usless since the reentry heat effect take place only for the craft that reenter at hypersonic speed since they have no engine to slow and use the atmosphere to brake. SC ships use engine and move very slow on the reentry so there wouldn't be any reentry effect at all.

I get the realism thing...but playing Star Citizen is more like..

Ah yes - last time we were in Braemar we got seemingly hours of purples. Then there’s that special bit at dusk where the whole sky goes lavender and the little white berries on the trees seem to actually glow. Quite something really.

Now I’m sure CI-G will at some point work on such things for their screenshot simulator :)

I confess I chuckled at the 'IMAGINE' line, and then winced at the repeated use of 'UNIVERSE'. Remind me, how many star systems are 'planned' for 'release' in the SC 'universe' - I recall CR indicating maybe as many as 5. Maybe.

Well, I guess that's okay as long as no-one has been sold exploration ships......
