That's how I feel when I'm talking to some of the kids in the art scene about the Rodney King riots and realize to them it would be like some old timer talking to me about the old Watts riots.

Which means it's probably about time for another Watts riot?

And I'm "catching up" on this thread, reading 2+ year-old posts since I last did.

I think the riots caught up this year.

You've got to admire the sophistication of the emergent gameplay that results from a realistic simulation that monitors the heat generated by the friction of your suit against the fuel lines as you're spinning madly inside the airframe to the point that the fuel catches fire.  lrn2play nub   why so serious?

First post in months and its about star citizen. Help me.

So I was looking at something on Newsweek and as I clicked off the page I beheld the words "Star Citizen" leaping off the page like some damned Siren singing and promising sexxx with some fat guy in a Khasakstan scam center who is running 10 guys in different windows.

Naturally I could not resist so I gave newsweek the extra click.

'Star Citizen' Assault on Stanton Live Event Starts Soon With Idris Battle
By Christopher Groux On 12/22/20 at 8:44 AM EST

Star Citizen has a major live event in the works, and it's starting over the next few days. Dubbed the Assault on Stanton, players will seemingly work together to fight against a fleet of some of the game's most powerful Capital Ships.

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to go toe to toe with an Idris? You'll soon get your chance. The event was announced via a short teaser trailer debuted on the game's social media channel's on Monday afternoon.

Following the launch of the Alpha 3.12 Assault on Stanton update, player-controlled fleets will soon take aim at an intergalactic terrorist organization called the XenoThreat. The group has most of the game's most powerful spacecraft lined up and ready to wage war on the Stanton System that millions of pilots in the Persistent Universe call home.
Newsweek subscription offers >

However, unlike the live events popularized by games like Fortnite, Star Citizen's take on the concept will roll out in phases over several days, with the first step beginning sometime this week.

And, in true Star Citizen fashion, it's not entirely clear just how long the rollout of these phases will actually take. In essence, the trajectory of the event depends on the type of in-game offensive players are able to mount. Should the heaviest of firepower come in quickly, it's possible the event could end somewhat rapidly, while a less formidable force might mean a more protracted war is required.

'Star Citizen's first big live event starts soon. A fleet of the game's toughest ships is about to descend on Stanton. 'Star Citizen' is in development on PC. Cloud Imperium Games

Regardless of how long the fight takes, the Assault on Stanton event is perhaps the most developed version of the kind of action Star Citizen's creators at Cloud Imperium Games have promised over the last decade of active tool designing and technology building.

For the first time, the game's Persistent Universe will feature large-scale encounters against powerful AI foes. Especially for the project's millions-strong backers, hopefully this high-profile test is just the beginning of a much larger showcase of AI-controlled ships and in-game storylines. To access the event, all players need to do is log in and check out the latest update from the Civilian Defense Force.

The Assault on Stanton event arrives shortly after the deployment of Star Citizen's Alpha 3.12 update. The feature-rich download offers the first version of a reputation system, new gas cloud locations and additional ships like the Esperia Talon and Esperia Talon Strike variant. While larger additions like the highly anticipated Pyro system wait in the wings, many of the features listed in update 3.12 prepare players for entering the pirate-dominated territory.

Star Citizen is in development on PC.

Literally nobody who isn't already an extremely invested SC fan has ever wondered this.

I 'follow' the game and I have zero idea what an Idris is, or even that something called an Idris existed before now.

The Idris is one of the capital ships they sold for $1000+ (think at least one version was $1500 or something) and still isn't available for people to actually use themselves years later.

Anyhow, this event has been delayed until the beginning of the year. Hope everyone has been practicing their "shocked" faces.

There was some shit on Reddit about a trial run of this where the ship in question got stuck clipped inside a space station for the last third of the battle so it was just everybody shooting it while it helplessly squirmed inside the station.

The irony of fleecing people for $1000-1500 for a video game ship...and then using it to kill them while not letting them have access to it themselves...

That's next level sadism, I'm impressed.

I was one of those nutjobs that enjoyed Wildstar. Right until I realised how out of touch the devs really were.

At least it released unlike this trainwreck.

At present, the game exists as a single system you can play in, Stanton.

Stanton has a set of major locations: the Microtech corporation planet, the ArcCorp corporation planet, the Hurston corporation planet, the gas giant Crusader which is intended to eventually have the Crusader Industries levitating platforms in its atmosphere but which is currently not interfaceable and has Port Olivar as a stand-in planetary base. Then on top of that, they have the independent miners' planetary base Delamar, and an asteroid pirate cove called Grim Hex. The rest of it is minor stations and moon bases, but those six locations are the fully fleshed out ports-of-call and basically are the whole game world.

It may be a bit unreasonable, one might say, to have a grand total of six major locations, eight to nine years into the start of development, and one of which is a stand-in barebones station. Which means that there's really only five major locations!

Never fear, however! there is a big change coming in an upcoming patch:

I have to disagree. Wildstar went in there trying to appeal to "hardcore" gamers... and then managed to piss them off as well as the rest of us filthy casuals.

Wildstar is the MMO that most disappointed me. Ever. The little trailers were so damned fun and it looked like it'd have a ton of personality and be a blast to play. I think I played it for like...2 weeks and that only because decorating my rocket ship house was sort of fun. Very early on it just turned into an annoying grind and everyone I played with quit more or less before me or at about the same time. It just wasn't fun.

The thing that killed me with Wildstar was the combat. It wasn't the rhythmic, relaxing tab-target system of WoW where you could mostly be on autopilot while grinding, but it wasn't fun, actiony combat like TERA or whatever other KMMOs might have existed at the time (it's been so long). It felt like the worst of both worlds, and made me realize I don't really hate tab-target combat as long as the other systems in the game are fun.

so here's a spontaneous followup: I played this game pretty thoroughly, inside and out, for the better part of a month. Tried the ships, explored the full extent of the system, engaged in all the different available forms of gameplay. cashed out the WHOLE experience in that time. I had done ground combat, merc missions, bounty hunting, trading, search and rescue, basically all there was to do. Collected clothing sets and all that. That's it, about 20 days or so, did everything there was. Everything they accomplished in a decade. Basically done by the end of last year.

I have since been on standby, waiting for them to drop a new release with ... anything. Remember that this game has critical core functionality issues and most of the cornerstone elements of the FOCUS of the game, spaceship combat and flying, do not work or have depressingly hollow stand-in functionality. There's a laundry list of things that have incredibly vital needs unaddressed that the developers have to shore up. It's coming up on march. So! What have our brane genoiuses been up to in star citizen? what has cloud imperium decided needed to be addressed and extended? why of course it was to

It's the last line on Sir Ts image above. That you have to do a character reset to fix ship duplication issues. Which implies the existence of a dupe.

Also none of you need details, who gives a shit, there's no game it's just a con.
