The latest X game is More Star citizen than Star Citizen is too.
Actually forgot about it! It will be worth a try, I just hope they have ship interiors somewhat modeled, as that's what I'm really missing so far.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5NfbpLmMHI this also seems relevant to star citizen

Replace "technical debt" with C.Roberts and you've got a (un)making-of of SC.

****, that game is ugly as sin. And the UI is just so... bare.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

No, but effort into something that didn't assault my eyes would have been nice. :P

Only if it's optimized for a silky-smooth 12fps.

It's a german economy simulator. Mechanics always beat visuals  ;)

If you don’t play video games, you probably have never heard of Roberts. But in the world of consoles and controllers, he is Keith Richards

That's just rude to Keith Richards.
"When you work with water, you have to know and respect it. When you labour to subdue it, you have to understand that one day it may rise up and turn all your labours into nothing. For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

"As you sought to steal a kingdom for yourself, so must you do again, a thousand times over. For a theft, a true theft, must be practiced to be earned." - The terms of Nysa's curse, Pathfinder: Kingmaker

It's just realism, who can forget the Shuttles bouncing around the VAB. Everyone has seen those. I bet that if you were to go into your garage right now, your car too will ricochet off the walls.

Let there be stars and let there be you

Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
I think it is a different sort of realism: they're simply showing us how the new little ships are made. Most video games just use the euphemism of "docks" (from docking), but it is once again SC that shows us how the reality looks like.

Magnificent. The door closing after is icing on the cake.

(gif2)
And now without snark- what an awful physics model. Those ships don't even look/feel like toys, they're so light. Nevermind a multi-ton high-tech spacefaring war machine.

Seven years and four hundred million dollars, people.

I wonder when Croberts will write his 5000-word rebuttal to the Forbes article, highlighting their undeniable connection to Derek Smart and proving that they're nothing but his mouthpiece.

Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
It appalls me that anyone can read a history like that outlined on the Forbes article and think SC is anything but a perpetual-money-raising machine at this point.  Maybe one day a mediocre game will be released, but in the meantime the only thing making that *possibly* happen is the continued exploitation of people too easily parted from their money.  It's appalling.  At this point, Roberts could release the greatest game of all time and I'd flatly refuse to buy it on principle.
