Why is that every news of this thing is even more disappointing?
This crap get even worse every time.

Why sell a solar system when you can sell a patch of a hundred square meters on some randomized moon for the same ludicrous price?

 
Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
I can't wait for the terrain generator to make someone's pre-sold plot of land without enough flat ground to land any of their ships on it.  Good thing you sold the real farm for a fake one!

When selling land no longer works ... you sell Solar Systems.

Apparently that's not how it works. You can buy the beacon but it appears you can then go and stake a claim to any unclaimed piece of real estate and then fly back to HQ and register it. That should limit the amount of land you can buy up and the speed at which it can be bought. If I had any faith in CIG I'd say that meant that they actually decided to put gameplay over profits. As it is I suspect there will be a much bigger area of land available to buy soon.

they are probably going to change the terrain generator before you can build anything though

What you do is say there's limited amount of land. Hurry up and buy it. Run run run. Get the best spots. Oh no, we've run out of room. I guess we'll make more spots. Sorry guys who raced out to pick the worst spots of the first batch.

Now do they let people sell them?

Looks like Star Citizen has some new things to add to their game to make sure they are the most cutting edge.

Sounds interesting. The fully destructible part gives me pause however - I'm sure this would lead to griefing. Maybe this is something that could be policed or the hit to reputation would be enough of a deterrent? Assuming they can actually build the damn game it certainly looks like a social experiment in waiting.

i really hope that croberts sees this and is like 'i want destructible terrain, i don't care how long it takes' because that will be the final nail in SC's coffin right there and then
