The whole FUCKING thing is a alpha so why do you even have a secondary test server?

Because it's done everywhere else. If you look at most pieces of software in development (alpha/beta), the ones that have public releases usually have stable (live) and unstable (ptu) builds where there are always many unstable builds pushed for testing. It's the consumers that find the hard bugs while QA usually finds the obvious bugs and developers only find the bugs when their code doesn't work at all. For example, everything on www.codeplex.com. Even though all on that site is software to develop software, it's public in it's alpha/beta state.

It wasn't just the numbers but the undertaking of the "holy grail" of space games. A persistent universe with both space and land. You can either do it algorithmically and risk things being bland or repetitive or you can do it by hand... which is the insane way.

It's not the holy grail. Not by my definition. My definition of a holy grail space sim is one with seamless entry into atmosphere, 100+ fully explorable planets with bases, cities or colonies, 100+ fully open unqiue space stations and mixed in with a bunch of procedural generation...basically ED + SC + NMS + Eve.

Wait, what's your point here? How is that not what I said just with more fleshed out detail?
We're talking about an older write-up from dsmart that describes what we both described.

Do you think what you described is possible with 10 million? 100 million? 200 million? How many years, how many employees? Here's a hint SC, doesn't have enough to even do what it intends, and judging by your acronym math you don't even consider it the most ambitious undertaking.

I do consider it the most ambitious undertaking out there. Just not the be all and end all that it's being painted as.

Derek Smart has no business going on this vendetta of his to bring CIG and everyone inside of it down. It's a direct conflict of interest, has gone way beyond the point of obsession and he's attacking individuals inside of the company directly damaging many of those peoples lives over this witch hunt of his. This personal conflict shit happens every day in companies and CIG is not special in that regard. In this case, it's an outside individual stirring the pot that arguably has something to gain from the failure of Star Citizen (that's a whole other topic). It's none of his business and at the very least he should have ended his crusade when they refunded his donation.


Not to mention its especially amusing considering his long and storied history of buggy, unfinished games. Not an iota of introspection.

I haven't read all of his walls of text but I remember the first one was definitely introspective. He discussed how he knew it would be so hard to do "the holy grail" of space games because he had tried many times before to varying degrees of success. I'm not going back to it, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't written like, "BUT I DID IT!" he has definitely acknowledged his own buggy games.

A guy who spends no more than $10 million on a game budget, has 20-30 contractors and maybe half a dozen in-house employees says Star Citizen is impossible. That I can believe. Now if I was in Derek's shoes, I would think all games are impossible. He keeps saying he's been there, done that but has he truly been there, $90+ million game budget, and done that, 200 in house employees and ~150 contractors. No.

My numbers are probably wrong but close, but my point is, you can't judge success when you yourself can't achieve it.

Skyrim took 4 years. And that was the fifth iteration of that franchise, so they pretty much knew what they were doing.

Even more amazing is the fact that Bethesda developed Skyrim and Creation Engine at the same time in 4 years. So technically Skyrim was literally developed from scratch. Creation was developed to replace Gamebryo; an absolute POS engine universally lambasted for its bugs and crashes. A newer version of Creation Engine powers Fallout 4.

As a software programmer with a 12 year professional career, that's a load of crap. Algorithms, data structures, techniques, assets and development tools both 3rd party and in-house aren't re-invented. All they do is revamp the engine to support new technology, write new API's and get rid of unused / old systems.

Please don't make shit up. It doesn't make you look smart.

The most recent Elite expansion consists of a bunch of people fucking each other over using everyone as faceless pawns. If that's not humanity, then I don't know what is.

I was talking about this.

10 to 20 years from now video games hyped today will be found at a thrift shop or downloadable from an online retro-archive. Meanwhile, other companies are working on exploring real outer space in order for humanity to colonize Mars and beyond. The consequences of which will likely alter human evolution. You can put your time, energy, and money debating over and playing a virtual game or educating yourself and getting involved in STEM. "Spent X amount of hours playing a virtual space pilot", will neither have a positive impact on a resume nor will it impress a potential investor.

When we were kids, Star Trek inspired countless thousands to study STEM topics, especially astronomy, physics, aerospace engineering and the like. Star Wars inspired thousands of people to join the entertainment industries, inspiring directors, novelists, graphic artists and many other professions. Back then we had movies and TV, today we have video games. Elite is our Star Trek, Star Citizen our Star Wars, and Chris Roberts our George Lucas.

@Kxmode
I'm confused, can you please explain the difference between Microsoft people and real people? Does Microsoft have fake people?
Also can you please explain the difference between Microsoft money and real money? Is real money in USD currency where Microsoft money is xbox points?

You really gotta stop using that word real, for realz. The sensationalizing doesn't help.

It's alpha. Let me enlighten you on what that means....oh hell, I don't want to bother explaining it to you so I'll just give you the wiki page so you can read it yourself. Make sure to read both the Alpha and Beta stages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_release_life_cycle#Alpha

But if you failed to comprehend, I'll break it down for you.
Alpha = features.
Beta = bug fixes.
Therefore, Hangar/AC not fixed because they are in alpha.
Is every bug complaining moron seeing the connection here?
