Every Star Citizen piece brings the haters out from under their rocks, you all are more obsessed with this game than the people who play it.

If I don't like a game or the way it's being developed I just ignore it, I don't go posting in every single post that pops up about it. I will admit though, it is pretty entertaining to see you guys whingeing about it, obviously it causes you grief to see it chugging along hence the need to verbalize your dismay at every opportunity.

There is a tutorial now, I have not used it so I can't comment on it, and little icons/display on the right lower side that show hints/button uses. Invictus event is going to be busy so the servers may be on fire for at least the first couple of days, might want to wait for that before giving it a try.

The 2 previous days before Invictus I played 3.19 and I can say it's the best performing patch in a long long time. Interface and interactions were much snappier, all the ship terminals and shop terminals were working, missions I tried all worked without bugging out, enemy AI was responding better and no longer one shot you when shooting at you on the ground missions. There will inevitably be bugs you'll run into here and there but so far this patch is looking good. Once in game bring down the console with ~ and type r_displayinfo 3, you'll see some very helpful info on how that specific server is running, your fps, ping, memory usage, server fps "if it's too low you might experience backend services and enemy AI being slow to respond".

I get a kick out of everyone bashing the game and I can't help but agree in some instances, but there really is nothing else like it. A lot of time has gone into making SC and it's nowhere near finished but the light is starting to shine through the cracks, there is much fun to be had even in it's current state.

Lots of bugs but it's becoming quite fun to play. Recent patch improved performance as code is being moved to DX12 then Vulkan, a mix of DX11/12 at this time. Looting is possible now, and you can sell it to various shops in the game. The majority of the ships flyable in game are available to purchase with in game earned aUEC, maybe all of them, I'm not 100% on that part.

Mining gameplay is very well fleshed out and tier 1 salvage is coming for patch 3.18 "July/Aug". Don't pay too much attention to all the hate, it is progressing slowly but it's like nothing else you've ever played. Give it a try during the free fly, if you don't like it you're not out anything, then you can post hate comments about it that at least contain a rudimentary knowledge about what's going on instead of relying on hit-piece media articles as your only basis of information.

Xeno Threat event was quite fun, 2nd stage was my favorite. Everyone working together to grab supplies from the disabled ships and defend from the incoming Xeno Threat ships. It's too bad the free fly people don't get the chance to try it out as it ended a couple days earlier. It's not without bugs but definitely worth checking out.

I don't think I gave it a fair enough try, but after 35 minutes I uninstalled it. The 3rd person play is just bad, and I like a lot of 3rd person games.

The sounds: footsteps, weapons, vehicle engines all lack any depth and are almost immediately annoying.

Drove the buggy with a mounted gun and it's hard to believe this game was recently made, feels like something from a first time game dev during an alpha phase from 15 years ago.

I wanted to like it, I was hopeful it would play similar to Far Cry 5 or Division 2, not even close.

My MX518 finally wore out, the left click started to misclick. I replaced it with a G402 and couldn't be happier. I like the way these types of mice can be gripped by my hand, makes gaming a better experience for me.

I made it to stage 3 before figuring out I had it. Went to 5 different doctors over a few years trying to figure out what was wrong with me, none of them mentioned Lyme's disease, even though my symptoms were a perfect match, other than I never had a bull's eye rash.

Before I knew what I had I thought I was dying, sometimes I could barely walk when I woke up in the morning, it would last for hours. All my muscles and joints started to hurt, I noticed I was out of breath very easily all of a sudden. I'd forget words at random, it happened all the time. I started to get this unending pain in my lower legs that felt as if it was coming from my bones "the doctors said that was probably vitamin D deficiency, nope, tests came out just fine".

Out of nowhere I suddenly had what the doctor said was "multiple pinched nerves in my neck". I could barely move my right arm, the pain was so intense "for 3 months" I felt like stabbing a knife through the nerve in my arm. I couldn't sleep for longer than 2 hours at a time, then when I woke I would cuss for 2 hours straight because the pain was so intense. It began to feel as if I was losing my mind. This was the worst experience I've ever had. I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy. I thought about suicide constantly as a way out because the doctors couldn't find anything wrong. I refused to give up and read as much as I could until finally coming across "Lyme's disease".

2 weeks into the antibiotic treatment I began to feel like myself again. 3 weeks and I literally cried because I felt so good, I never though I would feel normal again, I could barely tell the brain fog was there any longer. My legs no longer hurt, nor my muscles or joints. 4 weeks I noticed I wasn't so easily "out of breath".

Thank whatever god you choose that you found it early, because if there is a hell then I was in it.

Edit: More than one doctor said I was merely depressed, prescribed me an antidepressant and sent me packing.

Here's a bit of info to read over if you are found to have Lyme Disease and then prescribed antibiotics for it. Take it as you will.

www.scientificamerican.com/article/silver-makes-antibiotics-thousands-of-times-more-effective/

It's best to find out if you have it early, although many people have no symptoms until years after the initial infection.

Edit: My apologies for the link, the long url instructions did not seem to work.

I lost interest halfway through the explanation. How can it be so difficult introducing "fun" to a multiplayer version of I AM LEGEND with no zombies and a working economy. Design fun things to do while not killing each other, I can play just about anything if I want to kill my fellow man, make something fun I can do with others if you want me to play your game.

The majority of us are not 13 and hell bent on shooting everything in sight for lols. We want to have actual fun, which often requires teamwork, no, not teamwork to kill others at every chance, just teamwork to accomplish something, anything, "insert your creativity here".

I feel as if I am the speaker and the audience.

While I'd normally paint the previous poster as being overly negative just about 99% of the time this time I'm going to have to agree with him.

Edit: I've had a few drinks so my judgement could be called into question.

Ha, maybe fired for leaks, but the rest of this is as usual, pure bs. CIG downsizing, not likely, the sky isn't falling, check out the funding page, if anything the sky is raining money.

It was quoted quoted before so I'll say it again, if the funding completely stopped as of today, not one more dime came in, CIG would still be able to finish Star Citizen.

And look at it this way, if it's anyone's fault that the current people got fired it's DS's fault, he just won't give up his crusade because his games are terrible, so he's trying his best to damage the one's that are successful. Hell, he'd probably have made some good progress on his current turd if he wasn't so busy creating drama.

Derek is the worst thing that has ever happened to the space game genre, hands down, not only does he produce some of the worst games out there but he's doing his best to ruin the good ones. And the gamers are the only ones who'll suffer because of it.

I'm sorry Kx, but all you know is possibly the opinions of a few disgruntled employees, I think every company has those. So what. Maybe your stories are bs, maybe not. When you want to see something hard enough you'll see whatever you want to see. I think most people realize that, you're not saving anyone from CIG, or the false prophet Christ Roberts. You're just trolling and ultimately giving Star Citizen more publicity in the process, so thanks.

If people don't like it they can quit. Others are out there looking for a job. If CR wants to redo something because he promised "fidelity" then he has the right. Do none of these people have a backbone, speak up, tell him you think it's going to delay the game too much, maybe he'll listen, maybe he won't, jesus people, have you ever worked for anyone before. When you're the boss then you can have final say, so far all you're doing now is whining, wasting your time and our money, get to work or get out.

You're taking the car thing too far, I'm just giving examples here. Doesn't matter if it's physical goods or pixels, you're spending money on something you like/want, which others think is pointless, stupid, and a waste of money.

My buddy burned through $4500 in Vegas over 2 days, he doesn't have a thing to show for it, wait, but at least he had fun doing it, and so do people that pilot internet spaceships. But, you'll never see those spaceships, yes, we will, we can fly quite a few of the single seaters now, and in November we'll be able to fly some of the multicrew ships in a small version of the persistent universe, probably about the size of our current solar system, and that "baby" PU is going to get content and ships added as their ready, missions, random encounters, pvp with other player ships, mining, then other systems will be added, accessed by jump points, as they are ready.

When it's finally in a state that is acceptable for the general public, and Creston, it will go live. But, Chris Roberts is stealing your monies, not spending every cent of it on the game, so what, you've just described every other for profit company out there, this is the intention, to ultimately turn a profit and continuously add content, just like all the other game companies. How long has CR been out of the business of making pc games, a little while, he's getting his wings back and starting to pick up the pace, if he decides something isn't good enough and says to redo it, then redo it, or quit and whine about how you feel insulted that you boss told you to redo something. This project is his baby, so yea, he's gonna be picky about it, he wants to make something great, and if he makes a little money along the way, well, that's just terrible, who would do such a thing. Maybe you should get a game company started and try your hand at making something on a scale that hasn't been done before, I bet you'd never run into a single problem along the way, because you've read gaming news for years, and you know exactly what to do.

Where the hell are you guys getting 4 years from, the demo shown for the kickstarter was done by Crytek employees in their spare time as a way to get CR to choose their engine. Other than that, nothing, I repeat, no progress had been made whatsoever at the start of this campaign other than a demo made by Crytek employees, possibly using a model designed by Chris's friend/designer. There were a handful of employees during the kickstarter, there was by no means a full fledged design team with a complete working engine ready to dive in at the end of the kickstarter.

So lets do the math here and go over the facts, the kickstarter is wildly successful, far more than they imagined it would be, should they stop and keep the scale small, hell no, keep it going and lets go for the moon. Scrambling to keep the momentum going, stretch goals/features are added as the millions tick away, the realization sets in that there's a real possibility here to make something on a scale nobody has seen, shit, we gotta start hiring people. There are still positions open that need filled, today, almost 3 "not 4" years later. In that 3 years multiple offices were setup in different cities and countries, a team was assembled and put together on the fly, a team that hadn't worked together before, and they need to start churning out content and a solid netcode that is a step above anything out there. So in that 3 years of assebling a fresh team and designing a game they've got Arena Commander out "and it looks awesome, yet it's not done", the FPS coming in October, the multicrew ships and the baby PU in November, Squadron 42 sometime next year "we'll learn more Friday". I'd say that's a pretty damn good job considering what I just told you. But I won't convince you, not even a little bit, because you're so wound up with misinformation and bs that you're snowball is already halfway downhill, and now there's no stopping it or you might look stupid.

So talk trash, spread lies and misinformation, and SC will keep rolling in the money, because people do their research and make up their own mind, and CIG will keep making their game, it may have more delays, most of us don't care, we get what we've always wanted in a spaceship game, the rest doesn't matter.
