It sounds like just peeing at the moment. Pooping probably requires another $10 million to properly simulate.

Imminent new round of crowdsourcing. "For just $1,000, you can ensure that your character shits big solid turds, rather than the generic diarrheal stream. For $5,000, we'll make sure your character has a special futuristic poopsock and never has to crap in the middle of a battle. For $50,000, your character can have a special teleporter fitted inside his rectum that will deposit rectal contents as they accumulate in a designated enemy cockpit".

I think it's going to be more in terms of what quality of space toilet you can have installed on your ship(s).  Keep in mind that you need space toilets in space.

Chris Roberts interview.

We run the business like a live business - we look at what we bring in every month, every year and plan our business by that. If that changed, we would change what we do. Outside the fact we're not finished or released, the company runs like we had an online game which was monetised every day.
Quote
Yes, but we do say it when people put in their money - there's a load of disclaimers on it.
Quote
People still say 'Chris, you lied to me', even if I did give all those caveats for our predictions. People forget all those qualifiers. I am fed up of giving someone an estimate - I'd rather say, here's the data I have, here's the schedule I see.

when scope creep starts to become so potent and so beyond parody that it ceases being a rhetorical reference for project management concerns and instead reaches a point of raw and unalloyed concentration of such potence that it ruptures causality and metastasizes into a solid and literal form, spreading outward as a real physical manifestation, like zerg creep, consuming all in its wake

This is why we are (four? five?) years in and there is still nothing to show for one hundred and ninety five million United States dollars.



Just reading that makes me cringe.

Squadron 42 has slipped back another year, Chris is still doing casting calls for more mo-cap and saying he'll be able to show 'some of' Sq42 in December but he still needs more time for the actual game part of the game.

Jesus fucking Christ. If I worked for an asshole that said that, I'd shoot myself in the fucking head. I'm not saying there aren't times where you get into a project and realize "Oh shit, I vastly underquoted how long this would take or what resources I would need" but holy shit. How do you even know how to allocate resources if you don't know the scope of the task?

Yes. A quick check of his Twitter feed shows that 3/4 of his tweets are about Star Citizen.

As far as I know bans from before the last major f13 upgrade didn't carry over, never mind bans from Waterthread.

Right, but not many banned ever tried coming back. Hrose and Hyu were the only two I remember.

I'm glad that this 'game' is a thing.  I can justify buying anything else because at least I didn't put money into SC.

They've announced a new ship for sale in advance of CitizenCon, the Pioneer, which is interesting in a number of ways.
 
Firstly it's $850.

Secondly, it's a limited edition ship which means you can't buy it with store credit, you need to open your wallet again.

Thirdly, it's a colony ship and is described by RSI as 'a game changer'. Which sounds like there's yet another unplanned addition to the game scope.

It's interesting not because I think those things will ever get added to the game (as much as anything that's likely to be released can be called a game), it's interesting because they are making a more-than-usual naked grab for cash with this ludicrously expensive ship that you can't apply previous pledges towards. Plus they are trying to justify it with a USP that indicates that the scope can be expanded infinitely and in ways that weren't even remotely close to what they've previously announced even by the crazy precedents we've already seen. It's like when you are getting pissed off at the car salesman and are about to walk away when he says 'Well, what about this one? It comes with a feature that makes your wife better in bed.'

It's interesting to compare this model (feature bloat before release) to something like Crusader King 2's which released the base game and has been churning out expansions since then (almost 6 years now and the next one has already been announced).
