I wonder if a V3 demo will be out this weekend. They've had a demo for V2 back in the day.

Lots of EVE reference in the game so far. Definitely feels like EVE in first person view, but you can play this in sp also. Very similar concepts though.

No idea about the Fanatec peripherals but Next Car Game is already a true successor of Fallout and Destruction Derby.
Oh I know the game is fantastic I have it, but advertising Fanatec wheels with this game is not the best choice.
I actually prefer playing this game with a controller not my wheel. I have no idea who would buy Fanatec gear for this game

OK, one additional stupid question: Is there eventually going to be more SP, or is MP the primary focus of the game? I just assumed there would be a (strong) SP portion as well (though I totally understand if it's not ready yet).

Thanks again!
As far as I know there is no SP campaign/story. The game is a sandbox game you play however you like. The beta currently populated with npc pirates there will be faction wars and staff like that but you choose what you want to do and create your own story.
The sandbox game (finished game) can be played solo/coop/open MP where every single ship you encounter can be another person not an npc.
If you wish however you can play completely solo.

Right now however the beta is MP only in terms of the sandbox gameplay, and the portion of the galaxy that is available just a tiny portion of the full game. A lot more to come

Last questions before I pull the trigger:

How much SP content appears to be in this latest version? Are there missions and such, or is it just flying around and landing?

How does patching work? Do they have their own client, or are you downloading each version or what?

Thanks man!

The SP in the beta is basically just a tutorial.
There are 9 SP mission scenarios. Starting with shooting at floating garbage cans and the last mission is a last man standing style waves of enemies warping in and trying to kill you.
How long those will take is up to you and you skills but those are more of a tutorials than anything else.
I still haven't finished them.

The MP is basically a huge sandbox where you can fly anywhere and do anything, trading, hunting, pvp whatever you want. Earn cash upgrade your ships, weapons etc. That is what the game really is, the rest feels like wasting time.
There are no landing and stations in the SP that is all MP.
No need to worry about not pulling off a perfect landing. I've seen people smashing into the side of the space station where there is no door, and all kinds of funky stuff.

There is a game launcher that starts up. You login with your user name and pw and that will check to make sure your game client is up to date.
From the old Alpha version what I've had the upgrade process involved an update to the launcher itself and then a 6Gb download and install of the beta game.
According to the forums it is probably better to remove the old version and install the new fresh but I did not bother.
There are some crashes especially in MP but the game automatically creates a crash report and ask you to send it ones you are back at the desktop. No hard lock ups though.
Crashes usually appear when I log off the MP or I enter the station and try to buy something.
Another interesting thing about the MP is that you save your game as you exit and you come back in when you log in at the same spot you left off. Just like a SP game.

Hope that answers your questions

Lots to learn when it comes to combat and overall ship controls.
Tim here in this video is a very decent pilot and he is getting his ass kicked in MP atm.
Have a look

For anyone that is curious the beta is amazing, so is the X-55 Rhino from Saitek, my flight skills however need a lot of work.
Managed to blow up a few times during landing, I don't even have a chance against other human players atm.
Need to put more time into learning the controls and master them.
Good thing is other players get no bounty for killing other players unless they are pirates with bounty on their head.
So PvE is much better time investment than PvP unless you are bounty hunting and looking for player pirates.

So far so good though, I am looking forward to see all the new stuff they are bringing to this beta in the coming weeks.
until then I have my work cut out for me and have to learn how to fly properly

Fanatec sells some nice stuff but their prices are out of this World.
I don't think Next Car Game is really a game for the steering wheel users. Asseto Corsa and Project Cars may have been a better option to use for Fanatec to boost some sales, but that's just my 2 cents.

My money is on when all is said and done there will be a great game at the end of the epic development time.
Yeah but will we still care about it when it finally ships?
How close is it going to be to the original idea?
How un focused they seem to work I get the impression the game will be a jack of all trade master of none.

In other news: anybody can release a game, but only ONE can NOT release a game and instead promote "The Next Great Starship". The Lord of Vapor did it again! He should understand that this is sort of a very, very bad joke at the expense of his backers now.
It is nice isn't it?
That is what I was talking about in the SC thread.
The latest news letter contains "The Next Great Starship" and "The First Run: Episode Seven" and "Wingman's Hangar - Episode 71"
For fucks sake just focus on the game and finish that damn dogfighting module, and leave all this other web tv show bullshit behind already!
It is like putting all your focus and work in to paint schemes for ships for a game that doesn't even exist yet.
Maybe my grand kids will get to play the retail version 1.0 of Star Citizen

Quboid wrote on May 30, 2014, 16:02:
What do these include, apart from the aircraft? Is there a Korea map included, era-appropriate units to fight, things like that?
Each DLC description offers all the details about what you are getting. Most of the offer missions, training missions, etc.
Check here

For example:
The UH-1 Iroquois, better known as the Huey, is one of the most iconic helicopters in the world. Indispensable in the Vietnam War, the Huey continues to serve in both military and civilian roles around the globe today. DCS: UH-1H features an updated model of the helicopter armed with rockets, gatling guns, and door gunner machine guns. The simulation offers both extreme realism in its flight and systems modeling as well as a variety of options to reduce the learning curve for new players, including an Easy flight mode. DCS: UH-1H provides multiple player positions, including pilot, co-pilot, and door gunners. A handcrafted storyline campaign is included as well as a number of single missions and a training course.

I want to see them make an F35 sim that's accurate down to the engine start protocols.
Did you guys see that video I posted yesterday about the DCS-A10 start up protocols. It literally was like 20 minutes to get everything started and checked to roll out the run way.
Just insane, these "games" should be used to teach people how to fly these planes.

do I have to log in to any type of server,
As far as I can tell from the Alpha yes you do have to be logged into their servers. The final game can be played completely solo,coop,or vs MP, but the beta will require you to log in.

Was going through my game collection and I came across quite a few BETA CD's. Ya know those things that ya either had to pay the shipping on, or were sent out free, or where ya signed up online and beta'd the game for free?

As cool as the game is looking, even with all the DLC, there is no way I'm paying over 50 bucks for the core game, let alone the game, dlc, and beta access for 150 bucks.
and that is perfectly fine, your money your choice.
It was my choice to pay $150 for this game as opposed to $100 on release day, and I am fine with that.
I think it is good to have a choice.

If I will feel this way in a few weeks I'll just ebay it or send it back and get a throttle control alone and use my old Logitech joystick.

Whenever I need a joystick, I still wheel out my Cyborg 3D Gold that I must have bought around about the turn of the century (just to make it sound extra old :))
Yeah my Logitech joystick is ancient as well but still the best seller on amazon, it is cheap and works great but wanted to see how the X55 is in comparison.
