Play Star Citizen.It's free!**During this event.
>>533068909Still gotta waste bandwidth and electricity on this garbage.
There's not really a point in playing it, though.You can earn money through mining, trading and fighting and buy ships with it.That's it. There's nothing else yet.
POST YFW YOU DIDN'T FALL FOR SCAM CITIZEN
>>533068909I remember downloading it a few months back for a free weekend. NPCs were standing over chairs, tables and everything. I took the tube but the map stopped loading suddenly and I fell into the abyss. Uninstalled. That was SC for me.This game is a scam for starship lovers. Works as a car dealership. You look at nice virtual models and you buy them. Period. But there is no game. The guy just found a way to get the money from these idiots, men in their 30s or 40s with a lot of money to spend on their hobbies. I know this because my brother is just like that. He's been living abroad and he got this obsession of buying kickstarter boardgames, even though he hasn't played any of them because he has been sending them here. Like... that's super retarded. I'm glad he didn't find out about this game or he would be in.
It's funny because it's free every other month and people still don't botherIt's not good enough to even give away for free, but some people spent thousands
>>533068909>Playbut I already bought caterpillar in game and won
>>533068909So is it just like a dozen whales keeping this thing funded at this point? Surely they're not attracting new rubes.
>>533074307How many box missions?
>>533068909I guess they must not be hauling in enough cash from the whales, gotta cast a wider net.
>>533074890Just buy ROC, rent a cutlass and swim in hadanite cash.
>>533068909So, what's the actual "game" there? Does Scam Citizen even have any kind of gameplay systems yet? I couldn't even tell you what genre it is, because every single video or info from the game is just people standing around in pre-alpha environments and looking at spaceship models while the level-geometry breaks apart around them.
>>533075806see>>533069646There's some very basic stuff but everything that would be worth playing is waiting on core technology to be implemented.
>>533076175>Star Citizen premium backer reads announcement that roadmap for the next roadmap is being delayed again
degenerate spacesimdads are getting exactly the cult leader they deserve
>>533077247I don't see the problem?
>>533075328Can you go inside that?
>>533078636>>533078818It looks like a level from Alien Isolation on the inside too
>>533075328>making an expo for a ship that doesn't have an inch of gameplay relevant to its role finished
>>533079951It's not an expo for that ship, though?
>>533078293you're probably too used to passive aggressive, snarky comments then
Buy it goy, only $100 USD including the revolutionary Squadron 42, which recently got a roadmap for its roadmap.You would like to dominate the Aurora, right? You aren't poor, are you?
>>533080267>make starter ships absolutely crap for any activity that would get you to progress towards better ships>offer a superior starter ship doing everything better for a bigger price tagthe upsell scheme is real, truly the car salesman of spaceships
>>533080267Buying anything higher than an aurora pack is pants on head retarded.
>>533081045>buying anything SC-related is pants on head retardedftfy
>>533081045Nah, it's worth getting the Avenger Titan pack, especially if you can get it discounted during one of these events. With discount it ends up costing the same as whatever generic $20 AAA game of the week and you get a ship that's actually decent and can make progress toward better stuff ingame in a reasonable time instead of a borderline unusable piece of trash like the Aurora and (especially) Mustang.
>>533081282As someone who spent 200$ on a constellation pack, yes.Do not spend money on the game right now. If they deliver on the shit they promise, it'll be worth the prise increase. But definitely not right now or any time soon.
>>533083118Probably realistic for 900 years in the future
>>533083118Looks cute to me.Let me guess, too much bone in that skull for you?
>>533081437How much cargo difference is there between the avenger and aurora?
>>533082586>no facial animationsthat's another five years for the roadmap
>>533072996>DONT DONATE TO ANY CROWDFUNDS OR PREORDER
>they added more ships for gameplay that doesn’t exist yet and is a fucking pipe dream of ever being implimented AGAIN (this time for transporting ground troops around on planets)>does a stupid fucking free fly on the same day as a patch, ensuring as many people come in as short time as possible, breaking the servers and making the game not even remotely playable at all These people are legitimately fucking retarded
>>533083501It tracks your face motion through a camera
I just want a sequel of Freelancer and I dont think it took 10 years for that game to be made
>>533083767see>>533076175for an example
>>533083665>breaking the servers and making the game not even remotely playable at allGame runs fine for me
>>533083521>DONT DONATE TO OBVIOUSLY BULLSHIT STARTUPS WITH NOTHING TO SHOW AND NO BACKGROUND IN SUCCESSFUL GAMESftfy retard.
>>533076175>8 Years since fundraising started>9 Years since development started>Core technology still isn't implemented
>>533080267bought avenger titan with sq42 for $60 last year, ty
>>533085391The last space gameplay mechanic they added was mining and that was a bit over 2 years agoEverything's fucked
>>533084974>You see that piece of randomly generated boring terrain with nothing around for 200km?>You can climb it!
>>533080267They are offering lifetime insurance again? Didn't the backers get salty about that?
>>533086032So first (2012/13) they said lifetime insurance was only gonna be a thing for early backers and they set a date (with a sale and everything) where it was supposed to be phased out.Then at some point they sold a variant of an existing jpeg with lifetime insurance, which people got pissed about. At that point they changed their policy to "you can get lifetime insurance on new ships the first time they're sold" and they started regularly putting out worthless garbage ships that only exist to bait people into buying them for the insurance (since it carries over if you upgrade to another ship).Then they changed it again into "you can get lifetime insurance on new ships but only if you buy it with 100% real money" (you were able to exchange ships for store credit before and use that for purchases).
>>533086032>>533086332Not that insurance matter a lot either way. Right now it literally doesn't do anything at all.And when it does later on it's not supposed to be super expensive to renew anyways.
>>533086462>it's not supposedIs what they're claiming, yes. But CIG has been walking back on their promises too many times to count. They constantly use it as a tool to get people to spend more money while also claiming that it's practically worthless. It doesn't add up.
>>533080693>absolutely crap for any activity that would get you to progress towards better shipsNah you can get enough to buy a Cutlass pretty easily. At that point you're set on cargo space, just save up for a ROC and you can make bank.
>>533085698>noooooo everything has to have content and buildings and explosions and bad pirate mans everywhere it can't be sightseeing it has to be explosions bing bing wahoo!You must be at least 18 to post here.
I feel like all they've been doing these past few years is just rework existing stuff and make new ships.
>space games>its gameplay is fly into derelict and pick up objects, move objects A to B, hold m1 on rocks or space 'combat' which is always worse atmospheric combat where you just joust but the bigger ship always wins because skill never matters in space>the best parts about space combat are never included or rarely occur which is infantry ship to ship combat and deployment into conflict zones on asteroids/plantoids Honestly the 'core' of any space game is fucking boring. Space trucking, mining, exploration is fucking shit and should never be included and exclusively be done by AI allocated by players.
>>533086679It just shows they have no fucking idea how much of the game is actually going to work.Reminds me of that new engineer gameplay prototype they showed. It looks good enough for a prototype but holy fucking shit, why are they only now prototyping that crap?
>>533080267I was backer 34,000 or some shit. Spent $200 on it.Zero regrets refunding. This game is unintentionally a scam that will die and flop before it is even close to done.
>>533087083Yes.The new ship that's about to come out is the first one to feature door (um)locking panels and light switches for each room, exept both of those only work on an extremely basic level. They will have to work on every multicrew ship/ship with an interior again to implement those across the board.And that's how it goes for everything, some new ship comes out that has a barely working version of something, they have to schedule reworks, rinse and repeat.
>>533086987Not him but yes. In video games content comes first and then you design the land around it. When you do it the land first and then content what you get is giant, boring, shitty dead maps.
>>533068909Nah, I'll be able to fly in space by the time for real by the time this "game" comes out.
>>533086987>muh quadrillion square miles of procgen emptiness>implying they're even capable of filling the handful of landmarks they have right now with meaningful contentreminder that spawning 20 glitched out AI in an empty bunker does not constitute an "FPS MISSION"even our ArmA server has a more elaborate mission creation script than the shit CIG is churning out
>>533086786Yeah I'm sure the final economy will allow for me to invalidate the whales purchase within a reasonable timeframe. I'm totally not going to be spending hundreds of hours laboring in the jpeg mines while Whale McWhale and his whale friends go stripmining in their multi crew barge at 100x the output
This went worse than the last event. I managed to ride the elevator, the train, and the second elevator. Just as I was about to enter the exhibition, it crashed. Now it crashes every time on the loading screen. Waste of 60GB.The only time it got better from one version to the next was when OCS or whatever is called was added. Other than that it steadily gets worse and worse. Their technology (Cryengine LMAO) can't sustain a game of this scale. They should have given up on the MMO meme, it will never work properly.
>Load the game (this take several minutes even if you have a blazing fast machine)>Wake up in your bed>Wander around trying to figure out how to get to the space dock (there's seldom much in the way of guidance and no quality of life features like arrows or a lighted trail on the floor or anything)>Marvel at the sheer amount of...just stuff! Everywhere! There's NPCs T-posing. There's weird vending machines. You get weird popups that you're hungry! You're thirsty! There's weird kiosks selling noodles and stuff. There's weird kiosks that may be for missions or insurance or whatever but none of those work.>By the way while all this is going on your computer is screaming for the sweet embrace of death at every step>You eventually figure out you can, actually, run to speed things up>...but running too much will actually kill you>So you run, stop, run, stop in short bursts because it's faster than the default speed of "mosey">You wander through all these weirdly empty shopping districts. Perhaps you poke inside and find there's a shop "kiosk" that actually sells shit, but you can also walk right up to the rack and buy the jacket or whatever? Like it's kind of a cool level of detail but it's also completely insane.>Like to change floors you literally have to press a button to call the elevator, wait for it to arrive, get in the elevator, physically press the button for the floor you want, wait for it to get there, then get out. And do this every time if you're trying to run errands. And for every single floor if you need to visit multiple floors.>Get to the train going TO the space dock.>Wait for the train to arrive like one of those shuttles at the airport.>Shit, you got on the wrong one, like those shuttles at the airport.>It's not a loading screen, you literally have to stand there and ride the train to the next stop to get off.>Get off.>Get on the right train going to the space port.>Literally ride the train for like 5-10 minutes to get there.
>>533088195>What's funny is you can go to any hanger you want so you can get on/steal other people's ships and they get really mad if you do.>Get to the place where your ship is supposed to be>(Lots of time it isn't there which means you have to go back to the elevator, ride back to the main floor, go to the kiosk again, and order a different ship, then go back to the elevator, ride it BACK down...)>It is a really cool moment to walk out into the hangar and see your ship there, not gonna lie.>...but it's undercut by the fact that you have to figure out how to physically get on the ship, which means your Slow Motion Hero Walk is ruined by Malcolm Reynolds, say, bumbling around the hull of the Firefly trying to find the button that releases the elevator or the ladder or whatever so you can actually get IN the ship.>Eventually find and activate the thing to get in the ship.>Climb up and get inside the ship.>Open the door at the top of the thing to get inside the ship.>Retract the ladder or elevator or whatever.>Sometimes go and physically press a button on the ship's engine to start it.>Sometimes flail around to find the light switch to turn on the lights so you can see to press the button on the ship's engine to start it.>Physically walk up the ship to the captain's seat>Physically sit down>Physically press some buttons to get everything online>Actually call air traffic control or whatever it's called to let you leave>Wait for them to open the hanger door>Hover around in the hanger for a second and randomly crash into things because the flight controls are a combination of weirdly futzy and intricate with totally kludgy>Eventually, carefully, and hopefully you didn't blow up and die trying to get your spaceship out, you slowly and warily nose forward and...>Oh, shit, you're just above the city or whatever, you have to actually fly through the atmosphere and actually leave the planet>Now you're in space...
>>533087409Normally I'd agree but it does make sense in star citizen. It's realistic for plantes to be empty because that's what the average planet irl is.
>>533088298>...assuming you didn't die by falling through the floor, lagging and jumping off a ledge, your character getting bugged, dying of a heart attack because you ran, lagging and running in front of the train, falling through the train and getting run over by the train, dying trying to get into your ship, dying trying to get your ship out of the hanger, dying falling through the ship because they're still buggy, dying trying to figure out how to fly the fucking thing in atmosphere, or any of the ten thousand other things that kill you in this game.>Because if you do...>You start all over in your bed and have to do it all over again.>Every step of it.Buy Star Citizen now.
>>533088317The problem wont be having a giant empty planetIts that they want so many of them. None of which will have content.
>>533085539It's a SCAM. when will people not realize this. It's basically what Sean tried to do with NMS only these fuckers did the smart thing and kept it in an alpha state indefinitely.
>>533073818All we have is Liberty Ale.
>>533088543Assuming they deliver what they say they will, planets will have resources that players will want to sell. Then to get easier access to resources, players may want to build bases on planets. And then other players may want to either take those bases for themselves or settle nearby for easier protection.And from there you get lots of content.
>>533083803You want Underspace for that.
>>533088738If it's a scam it has to be the worst scam in the history of scams since they're actually working on the game.
>>533083472I think the Aurora has 3 SCU, Avenger has 8. More importantly though the Avenger has an actual cargo bay, which makes it much more practical for doing delivery missions with the small boxes that you carry by hand. It also has really good guns for the size/price and decent defense so it can actually do PvE missions as well.
>>533083665>they added more ships for gameplay that doesn’t exist yet and is a fucking pipe dream of ever being implimented AGAIN (this time for transporting ground troops around on planets)Wait, what ship are you talking about? The last time they added a new ship like that was the Valkyrie in 2018.
>>533068909>friend gifted it to me>try it out twice a year>literally no new content in the last 2 years aside from new clothes and a new planet or twodead
>>533089156>they're actually working on the game
>>533089010>players will generate their own content, when we get around to implementing the gameplay for them to interact withThey could have finished a game with their initial promises and be working on a sequel with possibly more money, definitely a lot more goodwill, if they only weren't so incompetent
>>533089360The Mercury Star Runner. It's supposed to be a data runner.
>>533088195>...but running too much will actually kill you>So you run, stop, run, stop in short bursts because it's faster than the default speed of "mosey"I know this is just one minor detail of all the complaints, but you can adjust walking speed with the scroll wheel, and the fastest is a pretty quick run that won't run down your stamina like sprinting with shift will
>>533089570Do you actually have anything of worth to say or will you just continue spamming anime picture?
>>533089010>all this headcanon just imagine bro
>>533089616Oh, that doesn't at all fit the >(this time for transporting ground troops around on planets)part though. At least it's only half data runner and is a really good medium cargo ship without the data part, better than shit like the Reclaimer that's 100% useless.
>>533089729I don't have to say anything, the lack of actual progress in the last 2 years speaks for itself
>>533089010not with their current networking lmao that shit can hardly manage 30 people, let alone the persistent shit that would be necessary to sustain what you're talking about.
>>533072996I pray for the poor souls who fell for the oldest trick in the book
>>533068909Stop reposting your Scam Citizen thread, you're never getting my money for your shitty pyramid scheme "game".
>>533089089Want to know something fucking hilarious? The people who support Scam Citizen in these threads think every single poster in these threads who doesn't is the dev for Underspace.
>>533083501No no, the facial animations are on the roadmap to the roadmap.
>>533089990What are those quarterly patches then? Is that not progress?>>533089843>that doesn't at all fitFalse information that's being parroted, what do you think? For /v/ to actually form it's own opinion on personal experience?
>>533090546>the version number goes up so there's progresso7
>>533089729>still no salvaging>still no data running>still no medical>still no mine laying>still no farming>still no base building>still no land claims>still no news reporting>still no working economy>the absolute state of combat getting worse with every patch>servers still shitting themselves with less players than what BF1942 had two decades ago>build a fucking cave prison with tacked on GTA SA:MP roleplay script insteadI guess we just don't understand open door gaymen development. Those 500+ devs they've hired are truly working at maximum capacity. They only need one more tool and it's just around the corner!
>>53308026780 fucking bucks to just "buy" into the STARTER version of this scam of a game?what the fuck.
>>533090658>I ignore everything that disproves what I'm sayingOf course you do.
>>533089638>adjust walking speed with the scroll wheelfor what possible reason would you need this level of control in a space game? Why does running need to kill you?
>>533090851Chris played a bunch of Tarkov that week, plz understand
>>533090767>>533090546>"Guys, it's NOT a pyramid scheme, Becky made 40,000 a year last year and look at the Mercedes she earned selling Herbalife!"This is what you sound like
Many of the people who bought the game when they were in their early 30s are bald, have kids, might have already married and divorced. And many probably already died. I wonder if they wrote in their Will who will inherit their ships in Star Citizen. Considering how long this is taking, it's a reasonable concern.
>>533090851>Why does running need to kill you?It doesn't.
>>533090546like the progress that gets scrapped and has to be redone every three years? Or the additional guns to supplement that lackluster ground combat? Or the non-existent network improvements so you can actually play the game when there's more than 15 people on a server. 9 years and you still can't reliably deliver a box from one planet to another.
>>533091429I'm playing on a server with 50 people right now, during an event that makes the game playable for everyone, without paying. And it runs better than ever.You're full of shit.
>>533090967You just keep being bitter. I'm sure life will get better for you at some point.
>>533090967Dude join our outfit! You can start as a server on the yacht of our most prolific whale and work your way up to eternal ball turret gunner!We're specializing in LARPing ground combat operations on empty deserts for youtube shills to make disingenuous videos out of. If you sucker some more people in, we'll even let you join the discord to get fake orders barked at you while you're shooting your gun at nothing for no reason and scream SUPPRESSIVE FIRE" !
>>533091398I would still like an answer for the first question
>>533090756Why are you conveniently ignoring all the stuff they did add?Let's just take the plantes for example. There were posts about them never being able to add plantes like they did to the game and yet here we are.
>>533091235>backed when I was still in school>now almost done with my masters despite taking longer than planned for my bachelors
>>533091759>the same hollow rhetoric as 5 years agonever change cultists
>>533091874Looks nice, I guess? Also walking slower reduces gun sway.
>>533092060>never changeyou certainly never do. The game changes more than your "arguments".
>>533091235Lets hope someone help me out!
>>533091582Lucky wish I would have experienced that.
I don't understand /v/'s hate for this game. Why do you want it to fail? If it works out, it sounds like it could be really good.
>>533092297That was only for an hour when they launched the event.
>>533091956>but look they totally btfo'd some arbitrary post from the past!woah dude, only took them the better part of a decade to beat your strawmanmaybe we'll actually get tier-0 alpha implementation of salvaging earlier, right around the time when everyone switches to home office quantum computers
>>533092075I guess. It just weird to me that it’s not just a toggle button or something like that
>>533092368>Why do you want it to fail?because it's a festering tumor sucking the finanical market share of the space sim genre dry while delivering nothing worth of value in return
>>533092503You leave that goalpost right where it was. They are making progress. You are wrong.
>>533092953How much you in for, commando?
>>533092953>if I move 1/2 now, and then 1/4, and then 1/8, and then 1/16, etc, I'm actually making progress! haydurs truly, and for all eternity, btfo!
>>533092368Did you notice how you had to include if? Star Citizen has given people enough to believe that it won’t be complete for an unreasonable amount of time, so they feel no qualms about shit-talking any failures with the game (real or perceived).
>>533092593It kinda grew on me. And you can still use the sprint button anyways.
>>533092953>chipping away at "technical milestones" a decade in>progress[laughs in software dev]
>>533092368I backed it wanting Freelancer 2. I got an ultra autistic ultra-unfun shit simulator.
>>533093238I fully understand shit talking the game where it deserves it.But what I see in these threads isn't anywhere close to deserved. Like 80% of the claims made here are flat out false.
guyze, I found the CIG whitepaper on development strategies!
>>533092953turns out reworking ships for the 10th time to accomodate some mechanic they should've nailed down in the concept phase is actually progress
Why anyone would back/buy this other than getting X4 is beyond me. X4 is a little jank, and the interface is pretty bad, but it's a working game actually being patched. Only things really missing are multiplayer and planetary landings, which are things that barely work in Star Citizen anyway. Egosoft has hinted at adding support for the former.
>>533094419Where's that writeup they did about ship mechanics and how so much of it didn't work but they had to do these stupid design decisions because of Chris' insistence.
>>533088416>>533088298>>533088195You know, I'm all for simulators that aren't just walking simulators, but this is going way too far.
>>533091235>government tries to take part of it via an inheritance tax>"wtf is this shit? Your father's will said he left you several hundred thousands of dollars!">his son points the government to the ingame ships that cost hundreds of thousands
Retards still letting this scam go on. We'll have public colonies on Mars before Star Citizen even comes close to completing all it's promises.
>>533095340It's also almost completely false.
I wonder what /v/ will be like if the game actually turns out good.
>>533095004In retrospect Freelancer abstracting a lot of that shit probably says a lot.
>>533095897>clipping through your ship mid-quantum is false>train not arriving is false>clipping through the train is false>ship not spawning is false>npc ai being broken is false>autopilot killing you is false>terminals not working is falsealmost false trust me goy :^)

>>533096420>microsoft buys out what's left of the company, finishes the game and releases it as freelancer 2Not that bad of an idea ngl
>>533096124that would imply chris roberts to have someone with proper expertise in gameplay design to mangle all the autistic simulation aspects into a coherent whole, which won't happenjust take a look at the flight model and how it went into a steady decline after pritchard left. it's nothing but undergrad devs fiddling numbers now, with noone understanding what made IFCS work so well in arena commander 2.0
>>533096334I came back to the game a week ago, to see what it's like now. And not a single thing on that list has happened to me.
>>533096420>freelancer 2muh dick

>>533096879To be fair, there isn't a whole lot of stuff you can do right now.
>>533097397>cult>can literally try it and every ship in it for free, no pre-ordering, pledging, or dick-sucking requiredBr-bros... i-it's all a scam right?
>>533096879I'd play it if it was actually a full game, who the fuck wants to waste time downloading a limited time trial of a pre-alpha game that is ages from being released?

>>533097397>>533097815You act as if this somehow makes up for the pay2win trash that would ruin the game, even if it came out.
>>533069646Is the fighting good though?
>>533097750If you just want to go explore shit or have friends to play it with it's pretty enjoyable, besides the glitchiness.

>>533097970Literally a repeat of his work on the shitty Wing Commander movie, he just had to move to a different medium because of all the bridges he burned.
>>533098039>pay2win trashI paid $45 for the game and already have some of the best ships available and all I did was play the game. Sure pay2win fags exist but they're more nuisances to be trolled or just avoided.
>>533097970he's paying himself, his wife, his brother and his old industry butt buddies a gold-standard salary for as long as whales keep chugging money down the drainthat's gotta count for something
>>533098043On foot? Absolutely not. Combat AI doesn't work and they just stand in place letting themselves be shot at.Ship combat can be fun but the AI isn't very smart and frequently glitches around, making it hard to hit.Ship combat against players is extremely difficult because the only people that will fight you are the ones that have meta loadouts and will shred you within seconds if you don't also have a meta loadout. And then they'll shred you in a couple more seconds because they have hundreds of hours more practice.
>>533097970>Over 6 years since it's intended release and still countingYou're saying it was supposed to come out like a year after it was announced? Cyberpunk was "announced" in 2013 and still isn't out and that scope-wise has already been corner cut to shit, but that's different right?
>>533098417you cannot unironically believe the curent "balance" of the pre-pre-alpha economy will stay the samethe chances that on release you're going to be stuck in a grindfest that puts even Silkroad Online to shame are infinitely higher than you getting access to whale ships within a reasonable timeframe
>>533090760You can get a ship for like $45 or even less, but its only purpose would be farming money to get a decent one.Also keep in mimd the game is 100% P2W, a cheap ship cannot damage a expensive one even if you continuously fire at point-blank since its weapons cannot overpower the shields. In b4 "get 100 friends to attack together"
>>533076175Ok so some guy or small team spent probably 8+ months making that facial animation tech this accurate..But what does that actually add to the game? Am I going to wear a VR headset that scans my face constantly and puts my expression on my character?Thats fucking weird dude.
>>533098170>any game is fun with friends>meme>somehow that makes a game not worth playingI think reddit is more your speed
>>533097970I really want something like Star Citizen to happen, because sci-fi life-sim is what I need in my life, but fuck me silly if they're not making every wrong decision you could make.Remaking several ships while still in """"alpha"""" to keep them up to quality standards, even tho there's dozens of other ships not even completed is one of the most retarded things, they should literally be pushing out rough boxed out models with placeholder textures until in late stages of development and then do several patches where they finalize 10 or so ships in one go.
>>533098554Sounds like a terrible game.
>>533098039how can it be pay2win if there's no win state :^)this is literally quoting Chris Roberts btw, he's that dense
>>533098997Nope, he's a perfect fit for /v/, jaded, fun-hating and contrarian for the sake of fitting in with the rest of the faggots.
>>533098845>But what does that actually add to the game?We prefer not to ask these kinds of questions at CIG. If Chris wants something in the game, like a food and drink meter after playing Rimworld for a week straight, it gets put in the game
>>533098736The game has persistence right now, and if it's "never coming out" then what is there to worry about? If my $45 lasts me several years and the I ditch the game I'm ok with that.
>>533097750The ships look weightless, their flying looks absolutely atrocious
>>533098845>But what does that actually add to the game?Immersion, I guess. It's pretty cool talking to someone ingame and seeing his expressions.
>>533098716Yes, the game was fundraised in 2012, pre-production began in 2010 and actual production happened in 2011, during fundraising the release date was sometime in 2014, given SQ42 was supposed to be a mid budget space combat sim, a roughly three years of full production was well in the realm of possibility.
>>533097750how many episodes of "point velocity vector above ridge line and flail around like a spastic" has this youtube retard whatshisname put out by now?
>>533098845>Am I going to wear a VR headset that scans my face constantly and puts my expression on my character?Believe it or not they actually have tech in the game that uses your webcam to do this, and that's not one of their promises, it's something that's in the game and working right now. (Probably because it was developed by a 3rd party company.)
Finally managed to get to the hall. Framerate seems better (probably because they bothered to unload the planet when you're here), but everything's as fucked as usual. This game will never work, you should give it up.
>>533099425This, looks more like a spectator camera flying around with free-look
>>533097526>>533099540So going by that logic, Garry's Mod isn't a game because you make the experience?
>>533098824>In b4 "get 100 friends to attack together"So you're saying it IS possible.I will lead a massive army of noobs against the jew whales who spent thousands in the game. My charismatic personality will make people flock to me, and I will dominate the world like space hitler.
>star shilltzens actually trying to defend this piece of shit
>>533099991There's actual organizations that will hunt down whale ships
>>533099072I don't disagree. It's absolutely not worth playing in it's current state.
>>533100091>>533099991It would be interesting seeing the autism of people who play EVE online in Star Citizen (if it ever releases)
>>533099920>garrys modholy shit anon THIS is what you came up with as a great "gotcha!" post? fucking garrys mod?it's a fucking physics sandbox. with realized feature list and actual working physics
>>533100076>game is literally completely free right now>It's just a scam amirite guys??? I'm gonna go stare at my pre-order receipt for Cyberpunk 2077>laughing_face.pngYou have to go back.
>>533100397If you want autism, search for star citizen roleplay on youtube
This guy has some insight into the inner workings of the company. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7SIP0NDfM2yyHKfRmCAociCcJKZHHY0E
>>533100729chapter 8 when, the wait is killing me
>>533096879I did download and play it last time it was free. It was cool and all but there's not that much to do.
Why everything in this game sucks so much? They just had to make subnautica in space. Subnautica has everything Star Citizen has, it just happens to be underwater:- first person gameplay- can pilot different kinds of submarines (just make them spaceships instead. For game purposes, just use the same physics of the subs in water as the physics of the ships floating in space)- have a mech suit for hazard zones- have a massive submarine that's pretty much a mobile base, where you can build lockers, bed quarters, even food producing stuff, and dock your small submarine or your mech suit- can seamlessly enter and create a base, moonpool where you can dock your submarine or mech suitIf a indie game maker made subnautica, they just have to use the EXACT SAME ENGINE, and change the assets holy fucking shit
>>533100889Isn't Subnautica single player?
LIMITED STOCK!BEST VALUE!
>>533074603You'd be surprised. Funding keeps going up and up every year. They must be fine in terms of bringing in new suckers and milking the existing ones alike
>>533100639https://youtu.be/7Hj_akZTkWI>shit goes balls to the walls insane in the first 10 secondsyou werent kidding lmao
>>533100608>lol he used Garry's Mod, arguably one of the most popular sandbox games of all time! What a joke!!>this somehow still makes Star Citizen not a gameWhat was your argument again?
>>533100617This is the 50th time you've deflected to Cyberpunk.
>>533100889Because for some reason they decided it's easier to completely rework the cry engine to do something it was never intended to do.Also, they want to make it a "it does everything" simulation.I can appreciated that they actually seem to try to make the game everyone dreamed of as a kid but man, they really could do with better management than Chris Roberts.
>>533100889Isn't that just No Man's Sky? Also Subnautica isn't trying to be an MMO.
>>533101227>No Man's Skytoo much of an aimless "sandbox". Subnautica is thick with content
>>533101087It's videos like this that rake in the money: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31v7sSGfTm8&t=224sThis one video I have no doubt will bring in another 50 million easy.
>>533101121>one has all the tools finished and working to build shit on your own>the other one forces you to headcanon LARP anything that isn't shuffling boxes, watching rocks glow or shooting braindead glitched out AI
>>533101342Also No Man's Sky's space portion stuff is absolute garbage.
>>533100397You just know that after the first few kills of $1000 ships by a team of well-coodinated poors that whales will demand the game be changed to better protect their autism chariots
>>533101107>Squiggly noodle modern art>”This is the path a ship takes when it enters hover-mode”
>>533101121garrys mod literally figuratively and unequivocally isn't a game you mouthbreathing retardit's in the fucking name
How difficult is it to make NPCs not behave like retards? People laugh at ubishit games but this is taking it to a new level.
>>533101107>As you can see this sclupture represents a path a ship takes when entering hover mode.>I see>It's called "Oh Fuckus"
>>533101424Why would it be so hard for an indie studio to just take Freelancer and copy it completely
>>533101480>>533100397>>533099991You know maybe this game might be kinda fun if it ever releases
>>533101734Unironically the proliferation of co-op has stunted improvements in npc ai for at least a decade now
>>533101734the interior design gives me serious suicide cult vibes
>>533101107This was actually kinda funny
>>533101107One of the best things in SC is sneaking onboard ships when people are doing shit like this and murdering everybody.
I really like the detail stamping. Wish more games did that.
>>533068909I played for about 3-4 hours over the past 2 nights, never even made it into space.Walk around space station, explore a bit, take train to a new zone, buy a plushie doll at the kiosk, take wrong train back to the first are, take train back to the 2nd area, take train to 3rd area space port, call in space ship, try to put plushie on space ship, space ship bugs out, plushie disappears. Get in ship, try to use comms for the hanger to open. Comms is broken. Wont work cant open hanger. Go back, call in another ship, open hanger, go outside hanger and fly around, search for missions, try to set waypoint to mission, waypoint wont work and map keeps bugging out. Eventually get it to work, begin jump drive, game freezes, 30 seconds later ship is gone and I am floating in space.Kill self, respawn in, take trains, go to ship terminal, no ships show up. The game is bugged. Ask people for help, delete user file, log back in repeat going on trains, etc. go to terminal, no ships. Give up.Next day. Repeat respawn, train, etc. ships still dont show up. Close game, log into website, reset character, have to wait 15 minutes to log back in while reset takes place..Log back in, repeat train sequence etc. call in ship. Get in ship, call for hanger to open, hanger opens, slowly start raising, hanger closes by istelf.... CALL IN HANGER, hanger opens, get out of hanger, start flying around the hanger....>Area is off limits, engaging auto pilotNothing happens... keep flying in same direction. SHIP BLOWS UP.REPEAT TRAIN, etc. Call in ship, go to hanger, ship is bugged and several feet off the ground, cant get in ship. go back in elevator, go back to ship terminal, call in ship. go back to elevator go back to hanger get in ship, call hanger to open, fly out, say this time I will just go straight up to avoid the city. "THIS AREA IS OFF LIMITS ENGAGING AUTO PILOT"CANT MOVE, GET BLOWN UPAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAnd there was more bullshit not listed.
>>533101852>>533101953Okay but likea game that's actually going to come out before star citizen
>>533101734They mentioned in some recent dev stream that there's multiple reasons this stuff happens.What I remember is that one of them can be that when there's lots of stuff going on on the server that priority gets shifted away to updating AI tasks and when they don't receive an update when they expect it, they just break.
>Not even a 3090 can run this shit at a good frame rate. Fuck off.
>>533102092That's not really possible right now since everyone gets an announcement when someone enters the ship.
>>533101173Am I wrong though? I use it because it's an excellent example of this board's retardation, if TLOU2 hadn't been released yet I would use that. I just use them to highlight your hypocrisy and demonstrate that a game trying to accomplish something and maybe failing in the process is better than one that lies to you and takes your money and then shits out a rushed dumpster fire.
>>533068909Does this game offer anything except the work simulator?
>>533102120If there's one thing star citizen does right its putting ridiculous amounts of detail into everything.
Development hell has never ended well without a from zero restart.
>>533102162And again, you haven't met 30k.
Alright, I haven't used my HOTAS for a while. I'm finally gonna try this piece of shit. What am I in for?
>>533102505What does 30k mean why does everyone say it in every server I join? I assume it meant character reset.
>>533102335>a game trying to accomplish something and maybe failing in the process is better than one that lies to you and takes your money and then shits out a rushed dumpster fire.Of course, because Star Shitizen totally doesn't take people's money, lie to them via roadmaps that get constantly delayed, and rushes out a dumpster fire.
>>533102335>muh triple AY boogeymanthis same rhetoric has been used for years now and it doesn't get any less wrongthe only person in the thread defaulting towards muh gubisoft and muh nawty dawg cancer games is you, you alone
>>533102401You can wait for trams and elevators too.
>>533089156>If it's a scam it has to be the worst scam ever because I believe itThis mentality is so weird to me. I saw some polls they were doing of Republicans who were actually excited to vote for their guy and they were like>Well if Trump is lying about anything he's the best con man in history because his claims are just so obviously, apparently trueIs there a social media algorithm that convinces you people who don't play Star Citizen are Satan cannivls or something? Politics is one thing - there are powerful people trying to fuck with you. But why get like this with Star Citizen?
>>533102607it means spontaneous server suicide
>>533102525Falling victim to horrible bugs for the first few hours until you figure out how to avoid them and get out of the start zone. After a day or two things are pretty chill.
>>533102459Literally a shit version of the Asp desu
>>533102727It's not even free right now, OP is a fucking liar. I'm not paying for this shit.
>>533102607This is the error message that we receive when the server crashes.
>>533102749The asp looks like shit. Nomad is a straight upgrade.
>>533102162this is almost completely false, in fact it has been debunked as of this moment
>>533102717Oh, I had that happen too. I was running around the store zone and playing hide and seek with some dude, every time he'd look at me I'd run away and hide in a corner, it was very funny and we'd start chasing each other. Then the sever died, and he was gone forever... I tried to talk to him but of course there was no namepate or anything.
>>533102292Fuck, why did you have to post this
>>533102172Already has more star systems than Star Citizen
>>533102669>But why get like this with Star Citizen?Yea, why get like this? Why spout nonsensical bullshit?
>>533102814Asp: SoulNomad and every Star Citizen ship: Soulless
Who said elevators are fixed? They are as fucked as always. Also, not pictured: the tram doors failing to open for 10s.
>>533103373this webm is completely false
I just wanted to say that star citizen threads on /v/ are the best. So much fun posting about the game. You guys are great.We should have more threads about games where everyone shares the same opinion, it's very fun when there's no flamewar between opposing sides
>>533102162The autopilot thing is their stupid way of trying to keep players out of city areas without covering everything in a glowing deathzone. When leaving the spaceport you need to fly through a hologram tunnel out of the area.It's one of the things that will kill you over and over if you don't know about it.
>>533103373Looks like a realistic elevator to me. They made sure to model in the poor job of the shitty maintenance crewIt's lore friendly with the star citizen universe, look it up
>>533103584>keep players out of city areas without covering everything in a glowing deathzone>It's one of the things that will kill you over and overque¿
>>533103373I was gonna say that you need to wait a bit sometimes.Then I saw how long the webm is.Holy shit, I've never seen it take that long
>>533102172it will. believe in the plan. embrace the schlock
>>533092297same shit every free fly event
>>533103879if instead of covering something in a death zone, you cover it in an autopilot-will-kill-you zone, what's the difference?you functionally end up dead either way
>>533103781Chances are another player left in that elevator just before anon came around the corner, so the elevator would have to go all the way to the other floor and back.
>>533100639Thanks anon, I'm going to go bleach my throat and sandpaper my eyes
Eternal Tech Demo the game. Get in the game, fly your ship around for a bit, do nothing then log out. All the while crashing, bugging, stalling, clipping, waiting and levitating your way through it.
>>533104024They used to have an orange death zone hologram cover the city areas. It was incredibly ugly and everyone justifiably complained about it. Then they added the auto pilot thing.The auto pilot is supposed to gently move you away from the area they don't want you in. But it only works if you're slow. If you're too fast the autopilot can't change your trajectory fast enough to get you out of that area and it kills you instead.It's stupid.
>>533104310what baffles me is why prevent people from canyon carving through the city in the first place
>>533104386Because they want to prevent griefing and because it's not realistic anyways.
>>533103373>modelling your elevators after ChinaWow that's amazing.
>>533104386Probably issues with people clipping into buildings and not being able to get out or something.Usually if there's a game-breaking bug intentionally preventing you from doing something, it's because there's another bug beneath it.
>>533103363Based and Lakonpilled
>>533104386They don't want players to get too close to the buildings and see that they're low-poly background assets.
Hi, armchair designer here. The Nomad doesn't make any fucking sense. Cargo separate from interior: why?A lot of space wasted on a "living room" with nothing on it: why?Not even a shower. What is this thing designed for?This ship could be 2x smaller and have the same functionality. It's big for the sake of being big. Not comfy at all, even.Pic related, huge room of nothing.
>>533100780It's been a year, he was iced
>>533106161rip binky, he was probably suicided with 2 shots to the head by the notorious cpap man
>>533092953Unironically, can someone tell me what changed/added since beginning of 2019
>>533105865Looks comfy to me. Only slightly smaller than my apartment.
Why would you put loudspeakers in your mining ship?
>>533106859Chris saw it in the John Deere catalog he copied the Mole design from, but there was no space left on the inside to mount them
>>533106571Thats something. I hope they'll stop making new plans and just finish the game already
Huh? Shouldn't there be a glass pane here?
>>533103838It was meant to be released back in 2019. It's almost 2021.
>>533107982No, it's intentionally exposed for some unknown reason. That's why they've got suit lockers in that little hallway right next to it, so you can keep enviromental suits there and put them on before getting in the mining turret thingy.
do you have access to any fun ships if you just contributed $45 dollars ages ago when the game was still convincing? I think I had some piece of shit cheap cargo ship that wasn't remotely interesting. if I have more choices I'll try it otherwise I don't care
>>533108221You probably still just have an Aurora or Mustang if you paid $45. If you get on during the next two weeks you can rent just about any ship in the game and mess around with it though.
>>533106571Cool features, but when are they going to fix the servers running like shit and the 50 player limit?You'd think that ought to be done first before you pile up and bury yourself in systems you can't use properly.
They should put a stocks system in-game where you can short / bet against CIG: for every feature they cut and every delay you get in-game credits and/or ships. Alternatively if they over-deliver or are early you lose stuff.
>>533108509From what I can tell, they don't want to improve the current server system because it's not what they want to use for the full game anyways.The next big thing for servers they're working on is server meshing and once that's in they want to work on getting more players and making it more stable.
>>533108221>>533108475"Rent" for free, but what you can rent changes every day so if you're interested in checking out all the ships start ASAP.You also get a Nomad for the two weeks, yours to keep for the special price of $80.
>>533104386You can do that to some degree.
>>533109167This is an area where no players will be walking around in the city, so the only reason to not allow players go any lower is >>533105519
>>533102459>>533105297>One is a logical space ship>The other is SC fuckery that would sink like a brick in atmosphere
Does anybody know what's going on with Squadron 42 or is that secret? Considering it's supposed to be a single player game, the production should be under control.
>>533109824It was cancelled and they will focus on Star Citizen
>>533109824The latest drama was about some update video not being released for ages and then there was supposed to be a roadmap for the video release which also didn't happen for more ages and a month ago they finally did release these two videoshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO-fWiYJ1I4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-uR8lJFbMY&t=1sWhich are actually pretty decent. They want to do these on a quarterly basis now.
>>533109824Squadron 42 beta soon, answer the call [current year + 2] !
>>533109824I believe they got sued over some software licenses and probably had to start over on what wasn't even a nearly finished product anyway.
>>533110458Do you mean the crytek thing where crytek themselves ended up wanting to cancel the lawsuit?
>>533109824they scrapped what they had and redid it a few years back (without telling anyone?), people were expactant of a release date like earlier this year, or last citcon, then they released the roadmap and they're at 1/5 or 2/5 on all 28 chapters. they've pulled majority of the MMO people into the project which is why this year sucked ass and kept getting delayed (last year too). who knows how far along they actually are, but shit's fucked, 2 years best case scenario for a release
Imagine spending $1200 real world dollars on a bundle for a game and it doesn't come with every ship in the game available to you.
I took this screenshot 4 years ago...
>>533088298>>...but it's undercut by the fact that you have to figure out how to physically get on the ship, which means your Slow Motion Hero Walk is ruined by Malcolm Reynolds, say, bumbling around the hull of the Firefly trying to find the button that releases the elevator or the ladder or whatever so you can actually get IN the ship.Let's be fair, Mal would actually do that.
Just tried again right now alt tabbed, spawn nomad, it's hovering 5 feet above the ground, cant get in.
The game already has amazing graphics but once they add it ray tracing it will just blow every other game out the fucking water.It will probably do the same to every current pc, though.
>>533113434>singleWith a body like that, no wonder...
>>533114481What? I wish I looked like that
>>533114469Yeah when you finally get a completed game in thirty years it'll look really great
>>533114610Yea and in 50 years you make your first original joke.
>>533114737Don’t care. You’re still never going to get to play Star Citizen.
>>533114843I'm playing it right now.
>>533111539Brain freeze lmao
>>533114469should they ever get around to adding raytracing all the rendering tech is going to be so comically outdatedevery year they spend in dev limbo they're falling further behind the curve, and raytracing dumping your fps back into single digits won't change jackshit about that
>>533115976>every year they spend in dev limbo they're falling further behind the curve,This, it's already showing, they are constantly having to update models and textures because while they looked impressive in 2016 or so, now they look standard, and the only thing Star Citizen is good for right now is taking Screenshots.
>>533116749To some degree those updates have actually been downgrades, a lot of the pre-2016 stuff was insanely heavy on polycount etc. In many cases you can't actually tell as a player that things have changed because they've used shaders and parallax occlusion whatever mapping really well but they've cut the performance load of ships and other assets down to like 10% or less of what they used to be.
Finally make it to space... in the middle of a firefight my guns on mustang alpha no longer work. Didnt say overheated, didnt say i lost shields and took damage, look at the weapon menu, they look fine. WHAT THE FUCKKKKKKKKKKKK
>>533118528You may have run into somebody who was using distortion guns (basically EMP guns), they're OP as fuck this patch and can literally turn your whole ship off or drain enough power that it still flies but guns won't fire.
>>533119589no one attacked me or was near me
>>533089156Worth remembering that any good pyramid scheme gives initial returns to turn initial investors into further investors. If star citizen hadn't done a single thing in all this time that one hundred million would be at most four million.
>>533109271These are some of the worst flight physics I've ever seen.
>>533121843It's not a pyramid scheme, it's a ponzi scheme. They sell more ships to fund development of earlier stuff, then when that runs out, they sell more fake ships, and so on.
>>533105865Keep in mind that the following is not a defense of star citizen as a game but an answer to the design questions from a fellow armchair designer. I have not even seen the ship in question, I'm going off your description alone.>Cargo separate from interior: why?So the pilot can jettison it in case of a hull breach or attack without any danger to the pilot. Also offloads weight in case of a fuel crisis in case you need that extra bit of emergency fuel for flights>A lot of space wasted on a "living room" with nothing on it: why?space would get claustrophobic eventually on long flights, I'd imagine it's a mental health consideration>Not even a shower. What is this thing designed for?you'd better hope the shower is not in the same irrigation system as the bathroom because that water is gonna get recycled unless you can somehow find a place in space where you can convert moisture into water.
just play Elite Dangerous or Space Engineers
