In the Prime timeline Star Citizen was released 4 years ago to universal acclaim, President Clinton upheld the Paris agreement and the UK begrudgingly remains in the EU.

And Interplay sold the FreeSpace rights back to THQ Nordic. V is developing FS3 right now.

In the prime universe Interplay advertised Freespace 2 meaning that it sold enough to keep them afloat. Volition went on to develop 4 other space shooter IPs and plan to finally return to the Freespace universe after a 5 year break early next year.

Hopefully in that timeline it went the original plan, that the knowledge of FreeSpace, Red Faction and Saints Row was used for Descent 4 finally. :D

Maybe in this prime universe Chris Roberts was even able to finish his own vision of Freelancer and Freelancer 2 and his studio was able to release the whole Starlancer trilogy. So there would not be even the need for Star Citizen  :D

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities.

Well at least it isn't the timeline where it was developed by Derek Smart and published by Chris Roberts. :P

In other news, apparently there's an actual spaceship shop in the SC pre-alpha (it's pre-alpha now because that's what CR is referring to it as). Minus the ships and purchasing of ships of course:-

Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
Not exactly, misleading wording on my part, sorry. CIG and the player base are still referring to it as the "Alpha", but CR referred to it as pre-alpha multiple times during the last citcon, so who knows at this point.

Here's some tl;dr on the current star citizen experience that you can expect from this 200 million dollar masterpiece.







Still good it seems

$200 million reached!

Thank you all for your generous contributions :D

Next stop is patch 3.3.5 with planet Hurston, should be out in a week or so with lots of new content. Framerate is greatly improved since last patch, however nothing changed on the crashes and bugs front..

$200 million, you say?  With that amount of money, some video game developers could have made a video game.

So are we actually at the point where we can start discussing gameplay concepts, like the optimal equipment for particular ship hulls, time-efficient ways to make money, or the best dogfighting tactics?

Going from 5fps to 10fps is indeed a massive improvement. Double the framerate, ladies and gentlemen.

Nope. Come back in two years.

40-60 fps on my Radeon 390X at 1080p very high. It is no 144Hz but this is the first patch when I feel framerate is no longer significantly impacting the gameplay.

This seems like an incredibly optimistic estimate.

Nah lol, the game completely buckles under any kind of actual action. 40-60fps during peaceful moments with only a handful of commandos on screen says nothing.

You've just got to think positive - 40-60fps during peaceful moments with only a handful of commandos on screen- it's not crashing!! IT'S ALIVE!!!! IT'S ALIVE!!!!! THE GAME MADE FROM BODYPARTS OF A SPACE SIMULATOR, SIMS, AN EGO SHOOTER AND TRADE SIMULATOR IS ALIVE!!!!!

You've been saying crap like this since this thread was started.  You set yourself a deadline for when you'll start being skeptical, that deadline comes and goes, and you find a way to rationalize your continued belief in SC.

At the cost of the game ignoring things outside of a certain range, like the sniper example spoon posted.

They're having a free fly week starting on the 23rd for you masochists out there.
