The Star Citizen Thread V10

I m not sure she got "cut lose" but she was a real fangirl in the past claiming to have special ties and rapport with Sandi really pushing the advertising for the game and then suddenly she started making ED videos, switched her playtime around with less and less SC until she became a non-factor
 
Why did they cut her loose? Did that have anything to do with Lucy?

Is this her btw? Nothing else seems to come up since 2013

wiggling nose and ears inquisitively in anticipation of juicy gossip
Yeah, that's her.

No idea on the why. She had Sandi on her vids and she had that Ben's day series going where she would talk to Ben about things. But then Ben was pushed into the background before finally erm... being pushed out or leaving or whatever really happened there. Basically she had no more access to CIG people, so it largely killed her whole channel. She vowed to continue but then didn't do much after that. Not checked her channel in a long time.

CIG seem to have a habit of supporting people who promote them until it no longer suits their purposes. Bad News Barron was also a darling of CIG (he was the one who proposed to his girlfriend at Ctiizencon) but if you check out his tweets it looks like CIG don't really support him any more.

Rexzilla is now CIG's darling, at least for the nonce.

Ah, just checked her channel. Yeah, a lot less active. Still doing the odd SC video, but also covering a wider range of games.

Looks like she learned an important lesson, don't put all your eggs in one basket.
 
There are pleenty of backers having issues with a civilization creating an entire planet covered with a city within 30 years and hoping that those that write that lore will fix the dates.

  • System discovered at -50 years
  • Corporation begins terraform and cover planet with city -30 years
  • Current timeline 00 years
And the OTHER planet in that system has only ONE city and is littered with metal debris almost everywhere all over the planet.

Had they said 500 years since discovery and 300 years of polluting, building and exploiting then i could have bought the lore somewhat.
Well if talking decades v centuries, it seems ED has the logistics and environmental stewardship aspects of this right? i.e. making biowaste an actual valuable trading commodity on the galactic market. So that you could actually make a decent living being a full time Hazmat space trucker in the bubble. CI should consider making that more of a playable quest/mission feature perhaps? It would help make the lore more plausible given the degree of environmental pollution a city covered planet would generate.

Also think they should boost the price for biowaste in fronteir sectors far from bubble. Terraforming should be a challenge for humans in deep space. So on average, agriculture products/husbandry/industry should be higher demand/value commodities.

Speaking of trucking, Eurotrucker 2 is on a massive 75% sale discount and down to $5 this week. Think I'll give my Holo Me a change of scenery and do some terran trucking in Sol.
 
Except the Epic Store exclusive part...
Not necessarily. There is still the Windows store. At least until it's available on Steam. I've never d/l a PC game from the Windows Store, so TOW will make it a first. Hope server support in the store doesn't end up going the way of GFWL....
 
As pocket sized, and unfidel as it is, the star system of Outer Wilds is richer and more coherent than SC's. Plus: it has a more interesting flight model, meaningful spacelegs and original story, lore and ways to convey them.

Outer Wilds reminds me a lot of Mercenary Damocles and Starglider 2. That you can make great things in tiny space, limited financial or technical means with good knowledge of limitations and clever ways to get around them.

Sorry for the OT.
This. Much the same way R* did with Bully
 
Yeah, that's her.

SC wins again!

Best immersion timer out there!
It certainly is! Purchasing immersion chariots and watching "we are pipelining the win stage in these very early stage zero-tier implementations of alpha development" immersion win videos for nearly a decade and there is still no game!

Genuine Roberts could continue this for several decades with absolutely no degradation in entertainment value :D
 
Because people have massively overblown expectations. They expect massive battles, betrayals and sex scandals like from a huge novel (GoT, anyone?) every goddamn week and then they are surprised they don't get it and instead they get mundane, "realistic" politics and stuff.
Or simply expectations to meet what we have been previously told, that should be mundane, "realistic" politics

We are over due the Federal Presidential election, as Hudson's Term ended June 1st, since it was the last 4 years of Halsey's 8
And have heard of only one of the annual Alliance Presidential elections

But this is completely OT
 
Ah, still pretty much a fangirl. Stopped at a random point in the video and she is talking about the Fobes article and saying that people who are "outside" the project probably aren't lying or trying to mislead, they just don't understand.

Ugh....
What does she mean by "outside" the project? Not having backed with sufficient whale oil? Are the basic 60 USD backers outside the project, too?

Certainly holds some merit. Most people not invested in Star Citizen take a superficial glance and immediately make up their mind based on the spare facts that are available without spending hours on available videos or going through hundreds of posts which all demonstrate how hostile discussing the game can become. I mean imagine hearing about Star Citizen then selecting a random stream or video then sit there for 10 minutes straight staring at a QT slipstream without any gameplay at all. I d say thats enough to make up your mind and voice your opinion. Its not a very educated one but its a first impression and that counts as well.

Now you could educate that person by pointing out all the good things in Star Citizen or even provide links showcasing engaging gameplay or quality development (good luck :D) because there are many games on the market that appear boring and simple and only reveil complexity or great design after you dive in for a time. In Star Citizens case spending more time only reveals the rotten stench. And of course engaging the SC community anywhere on the internet (apart from protected places which are pretty rare nowadays....) more likely results in you being attacked or ridiculed then answers.

Now I have the feeling that good old Batgirl has a misconception of people "inside" the project like most pro-SC people have. Where you not being a backer, not being concierge, not knowing any CIG folks personally or simply having a less-then-optimistic view on the project marks you as an "outsider". What kind of an expert do you have to be in order to be "inside" the project exactly? Because if its knowledge that immediately terminates 90%+ of all people discussing the project and makes me an expert due to all the things I know (tho I would never label myself that way....). If its monetary investment then that includes a lot of people who are less then happy with how SC goes. Also many articles in the past were written by authors who had access to Star Citizen either by being backers themselves or having an available account to check things out and perform their own research. But of course these people (that includes Derek Smart) are all outside the project because Batgirl and Co utilize a certain combination of qualifiers that is pretty much impossible to match and ensures that only people speaking positively about SC remain on the "inside".

A lot of people critizising the Forbes article fail to understand that Forbes focused on an area they are pretty knowlegeable about....finances. They are not discussing or analyzing existing features/mechanics or try to paint a verdict on SCs quality as a game. While a lot of people who are impressed with SCs qualities immediately translate that good impression on every other aspect of Star Citizen even tho that doesnt have to be the case.

Now Batgirl is an entertainment tuber. I just wonder what kind of "qualification" she has in order to dismiss financial articles written and hosted by companies with experts on their payroll whos job it is to research such things on a daily basis and who probably have a lot more options and sources to verify claims of all sorts. This goes for a lot of youtubers engaging in "analysis" of Star Citizen when they are simply gamers with no further expertise of the involved topics. That doesnt mean Forbes is automatically more credible then she is but it does mean that without a reputation to back up her statements she needs to provide a bit more background or arguments to enable others to believe her.
 
I think for "inside" read "onside". You may have a game package, lot's of ships or nothing, but you still embrace the dream of what SC/SQ42 project is all about. You recognise that what we have today is a stepping stone on the journey that is eventually going to lead to space game utopia and the vision that CR has shown me you then be a reality. Such is the onside persons grasp of the vision that they are able to see beyond the obvious warts that exist.
 
This is so obviously true I don't understand why anyone actually wants overly long travel times. The thing that makes the galaxy huge is the number of stars in it. Even if we had instantaneous travel to any system in the galaxy it would still be a mind-boggingly long time to explore all of them.

This is where Star Citizen has an advantage over Elite. It can learn from Elite's mistakes. They should be cutting down travel times. There should never be a situation where a bunch of friends want to meet up in the game, and by the time they'd gotten themselves sorted out and are all in the same location, it's the end of the night.
 
Thats just it. There are actually a LOT of games on the market from which mistakes Star Citizen could learn, ED just one among them especially as SC attempts to touch so many genres at once. Tho in hindsight it appears that CIG refuses to accept other games limitations or experience in those matters and insists to make the same mistakes on its own. Reasons for this?

Could be many. Pride, ignorance, self-inflated ego, comforting by the fanatics telling them they cant do wrong.

If mentioning or discussing other games within CIGs walls is indeed taboo its no wonder they cannot learn from others.
