Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
CE3 not only has real-time SSAO and a rather good lighting model, it also has the ability to do multiple texture channels with independent UV coordinates, as I understand it, as well as doing decal stuff. A basic tilemap covered with variant pieces of stuff like signs or so goes a loooong way towards making it look realistic.

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
I was mostly concerned with the modelling part. It's the kind of stuff that I would even be excellent at, given my proficiency at Archicad and you know the whole architecting stuff. Hey, perhaps in one or two years I can give a hand.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Chastise me all you want but... I don't get the hype behind this game. :\  I was excited at first, then the novelty wore off and I just don't care anymore...

Modding is what I'm hyped about.

That, and a space shooter with an actual netcode and people playing it is unheard of.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

I'm a shiny ship whore. Give me shiny ships, and I'm all SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

And these ships are very shiny.

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
I got my Citizen Card today \o/

In other news, I haven't been keeping up with the dev news, haven't been watching any of the videos and such, I only read what gets sent out by mail.
I did however do a quick search for estimated timelines and found this on the wiki http://starcitizen.wikia.com/wiki/Anticipated_release_schedule
Looks like we'll be getting some eye-candy this month.

I'm waiting to at least be able to see ships in 3D (the hangar module, I believe, will do this) before I even think about buying more ships than the basic intro one.

[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
Several people didn't receive their cards (lost in the mail, etc) so they're doing another production run and they're allowing backers who haven't received their cards to upgrade.
Now, my card took a while to arrive, so I was on the original list of people who didn't receive the card and from some of the emails I got the impression that people who were digital only can also order a card now. There seems to be some confusion on the forums about this. I could very well be mistaken and they might only be offering upgrades, not new orders. If you didn't get a package with a physical card and want one, it can't hurt to ask around a bit.

Wait, does this mean I can upgrade to get a card if I got in too late to begin with?

 
Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure what is allowed and what not. I initially figured they might be allowing digital backers to go physical (for card only). Best way to find out is to ask support directly.
