I have serious techlust for one of those ultrawide 3440x1440 monitors.

waiting for them to come out with a 40" ultrawide. i too share your lust, but i went to frys to check them out and vertically they feel smushed to me because they're shorter than the 27" i currently play on even though they're way wider.

it always surprises me what publishers deem printable material. i guess that's why hacks like me and bob think we could make it in the publishing world - we just KNOW we can do better than the drivel that actually gets printed. ergo, we should do better than them right? i know luck has a lot to do with it, but eh, we can dram.

Speaking of writing .. does this sound descriptive, stupid, wordy, annoying, or is it 'okay' -- or don't quite my day job?

Standing to the side and facing the office window, he pulls a cord and opens the blinds. The sky looks organic and thoughtful. The continuous shifting density of the rolling fog changes the atmospheric brightness - alternating one's feelings between hope and desperation. It gives off a sense of moodiness. Rays of sunlight shine through random apertures - only to be obscured again by more fog. He ponders, 'It's a struggle for which the sun will finally win.' For now, it's still a bit dark outside. He walks across the room, pushes the dimmer switch, and turns the knob. The low-lit chandelier assists in illuminating the room, providing an equilibrium to the hesitant sunlight.

pretty good. i'm a steady consumer of modern fiction, i'd say that's better than the average crap i read. of course i believe what makes a work's greatness is the whole body of its accomplishment, not just how flowery is its phraseology, so you can't really tell anything about the quality of your writing other than you have what i call good phraseology.

On the one hand, I'm not very hopeful that this part of the game will be good.

On the other hand, is it much different from flying jets in Battlefield or GTA?

yeah they just lost a sale with this bullshit.

Cats = popular
Zimbabwe = not popular

Sounds about right. No one in the 'social media' gets upset when a lion kill 23 people or an elephant goes on a rampage in Zimbabwe, but suddenly a lion with a name is killed...and OMG...MUH FEEEELLLLLLlllsssss.

Imagine if someone hurt Maru or Grumpy Cat The (digital) (1st) (social) world would be on the brink of war!


but all kidding aside... i would kick your ass if you hurt maru =P

my guess is yes, likely, probably, sq42 will be released in chapters so yes. if you're talking about sq42 vs the persistent universe, it's meant as a story driven intro to the PU that's entirely skippable if you so choose. i would approach like a spiritual successor to wing commander, so if wing commander had it, this will too. that's why i'd guess a strong affirmative to your first few questions - wing commander had them. and i know that chris tried to get the WC ip back before giving up and doing SC, so this is basically everything wing commander was meant to be.

shooter elements i'd guess highly likely since it's a massive undertaking and there's really no chance you'd spend a large fraction of your budget on something and then not have it in to universe intro.

custom loadouts again highly likely since wing commander had them, and they're already in the game albeit in an unfinished state.

choosing ships i would guess a slight affirmative. i remember reading/hearing someone say that you'd start out with a starter ship and work up, though whether that means you swap out ships or retain your old ones i'm not sure.

the meat of the game is actually after sq42 when you enter the online realm where it'll be a sandbox galactic spaceflight sim. sq42 itself will be release in (i think) 5 episodes, all included if you bought a package with sq42 access.

Star Citizen reddit is full of friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly people.

Why do you care about SC cultists on reddit to begin with? They are the extended abdomen of SC forums...

Glad for you that you got that huge sum of money back though.

And imo this brings up another important issue, try finding out what the current scope of SC is. It's a pain in the ass to find all the information. It's on 60 different platforms, 12 different videos and various youtube interviews... it's a total shitfest to even find any coherent current information on the god damn game. That is never a good sign for a supposed "open development" ;/

scope of the game is getting the individual modules working before combining them all in the persistent universe early next year. arena commander will be the spaceflight part of the game; fps module will be the in person part of the game, and squadron 42 will be the SP campaign to get players started.

http://pastebin.com/mSM29KZs Here's the conclusion to my CIG refund request. Start at "UNEXPECTED REPLY FROM SANDI GARDINER (July 22, 2015)".

I'm now no longer a backer of Star Citizen. My entire US$930 was returned.

I have to admit man..I didn't think you would get any of it, let alone all of it. I am not at that point where I want a refund, but I am only in for 35 bucks so I can't really say our situations compare. Good job getting your money. I want to see the game finished and I think it will "eventually", but this whole thing has been such a clusterfuck and anybody who wants a refund really should get one.

really? people are that pissed that it's been delayed? as far as i'm concerned it's right on track, taking into account the added features. might not see 1.0 till next year, but what AAA title hasn't been delayed. only diff is SC did it publicly.

Honestly, a mobile friendly version of the site is all I would really like to see.

pretty much this. i wouldn't be against a rearranging, but don't fuck with the color scheme. i think we can all agree ease-of-use is king around here, so any changes should be made with (not sacrificing) that in mind.

Um. none. I don't have GPS enabled. I don't text. And I don't use apps that allow them to root around my phone and use my data and other personal information. You guys obviously don't care about your privacy but some of us do.

Do you wear a foil hat too?

not just a hat, but underwear too!

This is what we get for fracking.
Take stuff out of the ground, ground goes down, although usually it happens slowly enough to have microquakes instead of stuff you can feel (that goes for fault movement, too, for that matter).
Sinkholes in Florida happen for the same reason (limestone caves that used to filled with water aren't anymore, and humans construct large buildings on top of the empty caves) but closer to the surface.
Source: M.S. in Geophysics with an emphasis in Earthquake Seismology

cool! we have our own seismologist. but as i understand it doesn't fracking remove oil that's already trapped in rock? so not a lot of empty space to settle since it's already mostly filled with rock right?

well, first with all my qualifiers. basically first earth-sun facsimile they've found. shame we didn't have the luck to find it around proxima centauri - the webb could probably get a decent image of it if it was.

What could be the 'huge' NASA announcement? Hmmm. Didn't Kepler already detect like hundreds of Earthlike planets already??

in case no one's heard yet, they found the first earthlike planet around a sunlike star in its habitable zone.

The SpaceX link is far more interesting. First real failure, and it leads to a landfall of new improvements. That's why sometimes you gotta fail to win. The Dragon Cargo Capsule SURVIVED THE EXPLOSION and only the software update enabling chutes was missing, or the entire cargo module would have survived.

And a structural integrity failing is something everyone who plays KSP knows very well can happen at the most weird moments

in experimental endeavors, failure isn't really failure; it's just iterative evolution. the only failure is throwing in the towel.
