Star Citizen Discussion Thread v12

SC also has Kate, D2EA, OA and others now. They must have lost some brain cells 😏
Influencers opinions mean no more to me than infomercials on late night tv.

I watch them once in a great while (Usually to figure something out in ED) but don't trust the opinions of people financially invested in anything.

I will probably try a free fly at some point and form my own opinion. But early access ain't my thing. I dont want to bug report and test a game.

Mole / Sovapid are pretty much the only opinions I trust around here.
 
I'd add @GreySix to the list. While he's not a regular here, I've often read his posts on Spectrum and he's one of the few sane people in that madhouse.

Nobody should trust my opinion of course. I'm just a fudding fudster!
I trust your opinion as far as ethics and morality goes but you don't play the game much so there's no portion there to trust or not.

Ill be honest Mole almost had me buy (Passive influence) a starter package a couple times. Then I just think of the bugs and connection probs and nope out.

Odyssey taught me I really hate early access and can't stomach it. No new games for me. Six months released minimum now, hard rule.
 

I missed this gem:

"The team also tested and documented new tech that should get trams and elevators working correctly in-game, which will allow them to play chapter 5 from start to finish."

Zyloh really is a time traveling wizard.
 
There does seem to be a propensity these days to push out unfinished bug riddled games as complete.

I would say at least CIG are very open about what it is they are selling but its more than that, it was the only way to raise money to even start, i would argue the amount of physical work in the game as it is right now is way beyond the bulk of published games.

Oh, yeah, i don't have much to say about the gameplay, except to poke fun at some of the design decisions and content. I certainly don't expect people to listen to my opinion on those. To each their own. ;)

I've done the odd free-fly, but i'm probably done with those now. Its always an exercise in frustration for me, especially performance. I can imagine by the time i get a new graphics card CIG will increase the system requirements yet again anyway.

Early access has really gotten out of hand these days with developers increasingly relying on hype and marketing over delivering quality products and EA then sucking people in and excusing issues in the product because of the sunk cost effect, to the point where bugs and performance issues are normalized.

Epic Games really took the biscuit when they kept Fortnite as an Early Access game for years, despite being one of the most popular games of the time.

CIG have taken it to a whole new level as well. No deadlines, no release date, just eternal alpha that some backers will defend to the hilt, combined with highly predatory marketing practices.
 
My first video on the web !


Found a nice free video editor VSDC to blur my name.
The quality is poor, I haven't found how to record in 2K, it's only 1080p and I've lost a lot of details...

That was actually quite nice!

You see, that's all you need to do, produce actual evidence of things rather than waffling on and deflecting when challenged about something!

Quality i'll accept, but not sure why you just don't record using GeForce Experience (or whatever the equivalent AMD package is). They record nicely in whatever resolution you're running with hardly any impact on framerate.

But why did you need to blur your name? Are you... are you a CIG employee? :unsure:

Zyloh is an expert liar.
 
SC has Joe Blobbers. We have classier more intelligent versions here I won't discuss because rules lol.

Nice backhanded insult ;)

The alpha of EDO was 45€. It doesn't shock me.
For 45€ I have already played and enjoyed hundreds of hours. And the alpha price is lower than the future release price.

35 you little stickler for accuracy you...

i would argue the amount of physical work in the game as it is right now is way beyond the bulk of published games.

By physical work do you mean assets?

If so fair play :)

But why did you need to blur your name? Are you... are you a CIG employee?

He just doesn't want you to see his secret fleet ;)

LOL.

I love how it took so many words just to say SQ42 is still ages away from completion.

They are still doing mocap. Still working on that damn cafeteria scene... seems like they've been working on that for years now.

But the bit that made me laugh the most was:

Gameplay Story made great progress on chapter 5 last month, taking responsibility for another scene with characters getting in and out of a lift.

You heard it here first! Great progress because someone took responsibility for a scene with characters drum roll getting in and out of a lift!!!!!!!

Truly never been done before!
 
I never use my gamer nicknames on the web, nor my real name.

But... gamer nicknames are anonymous and on the web. I mean, your in-game name is the same as your Spectrum name... so you're already doing that.

I don't know, seems like you're trying to hide something.

Its ok, sovapid promises not to gank you if you reveal your SC commando name, isn't that right @sovapid ? :p
