I don't think the majority of the post in this thread are... pessimistic, as you say, all the contrary my friend.

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
Actually pages 3 and 4, but it's not a big deal.

In any case, I'm just excited we're getting another big budget space sim.

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
Not exactly drowning, but they are well over the minimum goal and on their way to meet at least some of the stretch goals. At this rate I'd estimate they'll get in the vicinity of about $4 million. What bothers me a bit is their tendency to change the aforementioned "stretch goals". There used to be mention of an online ship marketplace, even talk about modders being able to offer their additional ships for sale there. That seems to be gone from the current goals - the $3 million goal now includes the main campaign, Privateer like gameplay, nice stuff like that. Then the $3.5 million goal now states only - "amazing cockpit decorations - think dinosaurs, bobbleheads, etc".

$500,000 to model and texture a few toy models? I'd LOVE to work for that price. Hell I'll do it for $400k :)

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
I have heard that this new game is just going to be an MMO according to a few gaming sites such as PC Gamer, is that true? ( i hope it isnt i miss a good singleplayer space sim)

If you check on their site, you'll see it isn't true. There'll be a single player campaign called "Squadron 42", and once you've finished it you'll have privateer like gameplay, which from what I gather will play something like the original Privateer with added MMO elements.

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
While the single-player element seems very Wing Commanderish, the best analogue I could come up with for the proposed multiplayer is "X with other players and less bull****"

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
Yeah, the stretch goals are like not planned through enough.
That thing about amazing cockpit stuff seems like just fill up ****, a tactic to "move" the real sweet stuff a little far up and get more money for it (read: modding tools).

Still, they managed to make it so I'm happy to see the space sim genre back alive.

How awesome would it be to have a little private HLP run Freespace modded universe in this game?

Well they do have a print and digital version of a modder's engineering manual... which already reserved a copy of that.

Yeah, I think I'll give the site a few days off, the last minute rush was quite something.

6,122,000 is what I saw last for what they raised, quite impressive

$6,237,583 , to be more precise.

I've pledged 110$ in this thing. If it can resurrect the space shooter genre by giving us a long SP experience and a fun multiplayer (and one where piloting skill actually matters), I'm all for it. Plus, modding.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

This explains my reaction to the end result of the funding drive. I only donated 10 bucks, and said to one of my family members "I'm helping fund a program for digital aerospace observation and combat exploration."
