I couldn't read that for more than 5 minutes..... Everyone's so picky/snipey.

Star Citizen solves problems with its roadmap. Remove the ability to see anything more than 1 junction ahead of you

Has there been any news lately on SC/SQ42?


 
Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
I watched a video about "doomed kickstarter mmos" today that namedropped Star Citizen and mentioned it has been in production for 11 years and was originally due for release in 2014. Other than that, nope.

EDIT: To be fair (and balanced), I've heard from people who play it that it's in a condition to be considered "a game" and is apparently "fun to play", even though it's still in early access.

I've never backed it l, was only ever interested in the single player story component, and  am glad I never paid into it.

This, so much. 

While I would eventually like to see this project succeed (and I don't think it will as long as Chris Roberts is the director), the feature creep has made this sound like even Squadron 42 would not be fun for me.  I play games to be entertained, and have no interest in hyper-realistic simulators.  I''m more Ace Combat than DCS (thank you, Falcon 4.0, for teaching me that lesson).   
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

Ace Combat is best combat.

He got 35$ from me. And while his team has not delivered that product, I do feel I have learned very much through watching the making of this game for over ten years...         ...about project management, communication, expectation management and so much more.
I got something worthwhile from my money, although not what I expected. And I had fun with Arena Commander...
