Call of Duty already made a really good Squadron 42 and shipped it (several years ago). Game was good, I recommend.

If it was so good, why aren't you modding it instead of FS2?

If Star Citizen is so good, where are all its mods?
Let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

The devs are only waiting that somebody here at HLP does a TC from their stuff so they can provide a link and say "DL here, there's your game".

Don't give Battuta bad ideas.

All battutamods have been very good so far.

Well that's why people here prefer them on a certain game.

Good to hear SQ42 was all set and ready back in 2016.

Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
You absolutely can. You make the $20 million game, release it, see how well received it is and then use the rest of the money to make Star Citizen II for everyone who contributed to either project. You also gain lots of good press when the first one comes out instead of persuading the game buying public that this is a cult/scam/train wreck.

Is that as efficient as just making a $200 million game in the first place? I dont think so. Just a weird roundabout way of arriving in the same destination.

There is no reason to take those who think SC is a scam seriously because they are an irrelevant small minority that will disappear completely once the game is out and remotely good. They are not a factor.

It's how you build a game that is sustainable over the long term. It's how you build a project (and a company) that can tackle a 200+ million dollar project.

Tell us, maslo, how much ~engaging and deep gameplay~ does SC's jpg store offer?

Its greatness can barely be comprehended, and so it must be toned down to merely good, prior to release.  Hence all the delays.  Of course.

Thank you, I needed a good hearty laugh today.

Seriously though, look at the S42 roadmap Reddit thread.  Some "small minority."

Well I certainly don't have an IQ of more than 23,301. Why don't you explain how I've goofed this time very slowly with very small words so that I can understand?

A game being good and a game being heavily moddable are not necessarily related.

You'd think this was obvious, but I guess not.

Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare had a very clearly defined scope and purpose.  Its developers filled that scope and purpose very well and put out a good game that accomplished exactly what it set out to do.

Moddability was not on the feature-list, in the same way that aftermarket parts compatibility isn't on the feature-list for a production model car in favor of something that is both road-worthy and is pleasant to drive.
