The sizzle reels for the ships looked good but those: 1) aren't anything like the actual game; and 2) were done by someone else apparently.

What little I bothered to watch of the Squadron 42 video reminded me of Mass Effect if the ship were bigger, and I was forced to walk through even more of it for no good goddamn reason other than "SO REAL!!!" The space vistas are pretty but seriously, the interface of actually living in your ship and having to go to different parts of it... properly moderated time dilation is a good thing in games.

Just wait until they announce that space travel times are Realistic and it'll take you 12-16 months of flying to get from the start point to the first poi.

They showed squadron 42, a full hour of "gameplay".

A space combat game and what they show off in the video is mouse controlled dogfighting ?  ACK! Facepalm

An „actual patent attorney“ on Twitch.

Just when I thought I have seen everything.

The video was great though and very informative as well
He records his main "show" on twitch and publishes on youtube, he also streams playing videogames, PUBG and WoT for example.

How is it you get internet in that cave you live in?

Oh, and the best part is you need to have already have spent over $1000 on other fake internet ships before being given the privilege to purchase this one. awesome, for real

whatever the fuck is happening right now it's half past fully insane. i do not have any way to think my way around the fact that they're selling a twenty two thousand dollar microtrans package specifically aimed at whales who have already invested a four figure sum into game ships. there is no way to take this knowledge and end up concluding "hm, ok, this isn't worrying and it seems like chris roberts is doing good things with his leadership of a studio" - this has become a wholly catastropic knife's edge of adventures in crowdfunding insanity.

I'm good on star citizen for now. good on all of it. I'll just be over here pillow smothering my already ailing hopes for star citizen so that I don't have to bother letting it live to experience the crushing reality of the project imploding in an utter catastrophe.

the only thing that can bring me back is if they release a $400 package that allows me to fly a Juicero ingame, in pursuit of valuable Raw Water deposits

It is still available (AFAIK), but if you aren't logged in with an account that has at least $1000 of sales on it, you'll get a 404 page.

I was laughing for a good half hour when I first read about this yesterday.


I'm now in full anticipation of what they will do during the summer of 2019 because I estimate they will burn through all their cash and the 2 loans they got by the end of 2019.


If I'm right their next sales pitch will be legendary though I don't know how you top $27k.


Only recently I was checking out government auctions and I could buy a plane and fuel to fly it for less than that much money.


Learning to fly seems like a better investment than pretending your in space with a videogame.

OP is assuming its somewhat of a design-goal of eve to make players happy.
this is however not the case.

The 1k limit on buying the 27k pack is probably just to avoid fake buyers since anyone who's already in for thousand might just be fanatic enough to convince themselves that wasting more money is somehow sane.

yeah and like, this is really important, it must be a juicero sized juicero, to scale. like you just ride around on top of it in a spacesuit or something, and it's at least as powerful as a battle carrier

They (meaning Foundry 42 in this case) have loans from National Westminster Bank (2015) and Coutts & Co. (2017)

The Coutts & Co. one was taken out against a UK tax rebate they will supposedly be getting:

https://www.pcgamesn.com/star-citizen/star-citizen-loan-coutts-and-co

While they claim Star Citizen itself wasn't put up as collateral for the Coutts loan it does appear that Squadron 42 (what Foundry 42 is working on) was.

Due to austerity measures I think they abandoned something as fancy as Debtors prison.

A "war" started on Reddit a couple days ago, between the /r/Eve and /r/starcitizen subreddits, with accusations that Star Citizen copied the design of the EVE mining ship Venture for one of their ships, claims that it was an original design, and all sorts of silliness.

Whether the Star Citizen artitst is aware or not, he clearly came up with his design after seeing the EVE ship. That information probably stayed dormant in his brain for ages and came out without him being aware. Is it plagiarism if it happened unconsciously?

I keep being surprised this is still an ongoing thing and hasn't just imploded.

I mean the mere existence of Star Citizen, and also people who think it's actually being made.
