watched a stream of this last week and it didnt impress me. probably didnt help that the streamer was one of those 'im so amazing' moba players. had more fun hating on him than watching the game.

if they want to expand the audience of esports they need to recognize that professionalism matters and professionalism includes language. that being said i think the LCS guys do a really good job.

The Li-Fi technology used by Velmenni in the pilots is able to send data at up to 1GBps - more than 100-times faster than current Wi-Fi technologies.

Edit: GBps, not Gbps.

I just saw the blurb that they achieved 224GBps in lab conditions, holy hell.

Of course, with this being lightbased, and thus on direct line of sight only, it's going to be extremely limited in possible domestic usage.

True, but it does introduce a pretty neat security caveat being that its line of sight.

seems only practical for 1 way communication. seems that RF would work better for transmitting from our devices as no LoS is really needed. or would we aim our laptop/phone's laser at the optical reciever in the wall?

But seriously, did you actually bring up Freespace Open in a topic about Star Citizen? At least Elite: Dangerous is in the same ballpark; Freespace Open looks like it's from the 90s... because it is.

20 years and 100 million dollars later and I still enjoy the combat in Freespace 2 more than Arena Commander.

Wow Volition released the source in 2002? Absolutely loved Freespace and Freespace 2..

He is concerned. He's a big defender, but he's not blind. This CitCon is a bit make or break for him, IIRC. I was right there with him until the social module launched.
Exactly. I have expressed my serious concerns on so many occasions. I'm not blind to the issues affecting this game and its development. As for the social module, I think it's terrible as it stands - the performance is appalling and functionality-wise it's rudimentary at best. That said, that doesn't diminish my confidence in the project overall. The hangar and Arena Commander both run at 60fps and they haven't implemented a lot of the performance features, such as DX12. However, they need to expand its functionality and do so quickly. With the SocMod they've at least committed to several major releases this year, including a new planetside location. Whether they deliver is another matter.

I'll be at CitCon this Saturday and they really need to deliver. Squadron 42 has been kept behind closed doors and it cannot underwhelm. They also need to show substantial progress elsewhere, to show what they've been working on for this past year.

Yeah, my thoughts were

1. They've been working three years, and when they launch it, it's completely not operational. All you could do was walk around.

2. They've been working three years, and they've partially completed one social module out of hundreds promised.

3. It was so overbuilt for its purpose, I realized there was no way to complete the game for $90M.

All that being said, I'm very interested what they show this weekend. I wonder if/how this whole thing will affect CR.

he would do well to not use the event as a platform to voice his frustrations with Derek Smart or the Escapist and instead show some tangible results and let them speak for themselves.. guess we will see what happens this weekend

I especially like the snarky little "Based on the generous standards set by you..."

It has all the maturity and professional tone of a three year old winding up for a major tantrum. I'd kick in $100 for legal costs for the Escapist, just for the show.
.

That was the best part of the letter. I'll match your funds but mine is going to CIG.

The more CR speaks the more i believe the article. i could actually see CR blame DS and the Escapist article when everything finally collapses. "Things were fine until blah blah blah and now we are out of money blame them...."

Gotta agree here, where is the beef? This seems like a prettier SPORE disaster to be honest. Except they shoot even higher.

Will Wright was on the Colbert Report once....

They were probably like, Stephen we know you're a big Wright fan... but you absolutely cannot mention Spore during the interview.

It was during Spore developement so they did talk about it.. soo yeah history repeating?
