Great article about potentially saving the Columbia. Very much worth a read.

AP was mostly community stuff, but TC was theirs.

Also, the X3 engine is a single threaded engine. There's no way to turn it into a multi-threaded engine without basically rewriting the whole thing. It's not a matter of putting a

multithread=yes

into a config file. Sadly.

But yeah, I kinda agree with harlock. I don't think they're going to survive beyond their next game.

Don't be so quick to blame the testers. For all we know there's a backlog of 1000 known bugs in their system that they never got to before release. Given that they released on Nov 15, obviously they were trying to make the winter buying season. So, there was a decision to push on that date, ready or not. Not sure the testers, or even the devs, had anything to do with that.

This isn't the first rodeo Ego's been in. Every single time, their games ship in an absolutely appalling state. And every time, Bernd or CBJ goes onto their forum and goes "We're really sorry about this. None of testers ever found these issues during our beta."

So either they are flatout lying, which is possible, (but if that's the case why still test for them if you get thrown under the bus like that?) or their testers are truly incompetent. Which isn't really even a bash on them, as they're just fans who are trying to help out. But after FIVE games released in various states of quality ranging from "needs quite a bit more work" to "just plain broken", is it that hard to see that their current testing setup, with those guys who signed NDAs, JUST ISN'T FUCKING WORKING?

And it IS partially Egosoft's fault, because for Rebirth, they gave the testers a version of the game with a sped-up economy. Ie, they weren't even playing the game that was going to be actually shipped to customers (Brilliant decision there, Bernd!)

I've talked to many, if not all of their testers, on the forums over the years. They all swear that they never found these bugs that people are running into. Even the X3 one, where performance cratered for 100% of all people after an X (pun! Lulz!) amount of hours, they apparently never found it. So I don't know what the fuck they are doing when they're testing, but it's not actually, you know, testing.

Their current system isn't working. It needs to change. Whoever's fault it is. Then again, it likely doesn't matter. Nobody but a few hundred die-hards is buying Egosoft's next game until it's been out at least six to twelve months, and Egosoft won't be able to survive that financially anyway.

This Man Has Survived on Pizza Alone for 25 Years.

It's odd to think that people can survive on such a limited diet.

The human body is able to deal with incredible amounts of abuse when you're young(er). That ability rapidly dwindles once you pass 40, though.

Also:

Beyond the fact that his diet is completely horrifying, he also has diabetes and frequently gets low blood sugar. When his blood sugar dips into the danger zone, it sometimes results in his blacking out on the kitchen floor in his underwear with frozen food scattered around him.

I'm not so sure that I'd consider this individual to be a paragon of health.

It was slower and less useful to create classes than in-game, and it never gave the stats you wanted to see or presented them in a way you wanted to view them.
Yeahh but did you see the fish Ai in Ghost? That was some amazing shit man.

And it had a dog! And you got to PLAY AS THE DOG!!!!

Yeah, when I saw that commercial I was thinking to myself "Who the fuck wants FRITOS on their sandwich??"


My daughter loves stuffing chips into her sandwiches.

Kids do weird shit, so that's forgiven. I took a bunch of kids from church to Micky D's, and a ten year old got an order of fries and a frosty. Then she proceeded to dip the fries into the frosty before eating them...

I just can't imagine that Subway is focusing this on kids, as it's not exactly their target market.

Considering how fubared Rebirth was, maybe just scrapping it and starting over from scratch would be the wiser course of action...

The only way they would ever get anyone to play it would be if they gave it away for free to all the people who bought this turd, and they just don't have that kind of cash flow.

I'm pretty convinced they were completely out of money and that's why they released Rebirth, but it's still a giant kick in the balls of all your fans.

They should name a patch "Creston's Disappointment".


No, that was the release. Every subsequent patch has been named "Creston's Utter Amazement At Just How Fucking Broken This Piece Of Shit Was."

They have, to date, fixed no fewer than 24 separate crash bugs. (And that's the absolute low end. It's likely been a lot more.)

TWENTY-FUCKING-FOUR CRASH BUGS.

I still have a pretty sour taste in my mouth over X-Stillbirth, but I will again give credit to Egosoft, at least they're working on it. Not just bugfixes, of which there have been hundreds (it has again been incredible just how utterly fucking USELESS Ego's testers are. And there have been complaints about the shitty shitty shitty testing they do with every single product, and yet Ego continues to use them...) but also actively changing gameplay such as the mind-numbingly boring highway 'gameplay.'

But it'll take at least another 6 months, and probably more like 12, before this is even remotely the game it was pretending to be.
