In the year of 2021 how hard is it to produce and release a single player space combat game?

That was the original plan, according to Roberts.

"When we first started, we raised $6 million with crowdfunding. That was a lot, but it still wasn't what we were gonna make the game for because we had private investors lined up. At that point, we were thinking of making a much more contained game." Kotaku, August 18, 2015

We even had an actual Xwing vs Tie Fighter game in the form of SW: Squadrons, which I admit was pretty lackluster but it actually happened. It was a thing. When do we get our single player game starring Mark Hammill, Gary Oldman and who knows who ... else?

Money came along and solved all his problems changed the scope (and likely continues to change the scope because no one tells Mr. Roberts he's wrong).

"There has been some concern about "feature creep" with the additional stretch goals. Typically, the stretch goals fall into two categories; The first is goals that involve features we already have planned or have implemented, but we couldn't create content because of budgetary constraints." Letter from the Chairman: $20 Million!, September 26th, 2013

Essentially, Chris pitched, "I'm making a Wing Commander clone." After he got a ton of money, he said, "I making a Wing Commander clone, and the entire universe the Wing Commander clone exists in."


Chris Roberts lies.

Star Citizen is Chris Roberts dream game.

Shame is that Chris Roberts dream is just to get lots of money, not some much on how to actually deliver on the product he promised.

The selling of internet space ships for an alpha of a game for hundreds of dollars is a scummy joke.

Shame on Chris Roberts.

Ok, Devil's Advocate time...I get the 'ickyness' of the whole situation, I do. I don't agree but I understand the sentiment. My response is that no one is forcing anyone to actually buy these things. If they want to put down a couple grand on a maybe-someday-spaceship, then they have that right. I've always scoffed at the prospect that someone flaming someone else for situations like these is just jealousy but in this case, I'm starting to think it might be true. Who cares what they do with their money?

=-Rigs-=

Well I don't know about you, but I find it pretty unethical to lie and mislead people in order to get them to 'donate' money to you so you can attempt to do a project that you don't have the necessary ability to do. Then use that money to pay your family and friends to work on that project, in some cases, not openly declaring that relationship.

But, I know, everyone has their own view on morals and ethics.

Anyone want to give this ago and play some Sataball?

Or how about go and see the Sandworm?

I'd be keen to do some science on an Endeavour spaceship if anyone has one.

Is "grabby hands" still a Star Citizen thing or was that dropped when the #metoo movement came about?

There's only 2 reasons I can see why anyone would leave a position like that. 1) Ego is damaged 2) Betterer rewards elsewhere. Is there possibly a 3rd?

3) Go work on Star Citizen with his old friend Chris Roberts

Thought I would check the game out. But I saw the price tags and the SP component will be released separately. Good Luck with those prices.

Don't be like that; spend, spend, spend -help Chris Roberts make the best dam space sim ever!

You know he can do it ...... He just needs just a little bit more of everyone's money.

Stop holding him back!

Pledge! Pledge! And pledge some more

The cult of Christ Roberts needs you!

When I was single it was really fun to follow the project and travel for events. But now I have a wonderful partner, three lovely children and own my own house. My priorities have changed. I don't live through regret, so wouldn't want to change what has been. Would I spend money on the project now? Nope.

I, who have often disagreed/argued with you over this project/scam since the very begin, am very please to hear how great your life is going. Well done!

I don't have a problem with Roberts at all.

Let him make millions off the idiots that donate. Some people are too stupid to live.

Ok, cool, so you are in the pro-exploitation camp. Good to know.

$350 million and the gameplay is total crap.

The EA game was developed by 5 people. Pretty amazing how it's taken off like it has and looks like they are adding more people to it's development now that is has gained money/following.
Yeah, now hopefully they will take better advantage of the popularity than PUBG did, they didn't do much except tiny changes with it for so long.

You can add DayZ to that pile of 'Had a great idea, took off, made money, then never went anywhere with the extra development budget'

(In DayZ thought, they shortly announced a updated standalone version that people brought into that is still, about 7 years later in a very early state. - I have not tried it in a year so could be wrong)

Single digits on a 3080 would mean you are not very computer savy. Recent updates to the API have further increased framerate, in larger cities I'm getting 30ish FPS with a 1070 on a 2600x. Still, the game is very much not complete, it's still the most impressive one out there though. We'll see amazing changes over the next year as systemic systems are put in place.

I hope you're right. I like the vision and the worldbuilding. It just seems like they want to add All The Stuff instead of solidifying what they have before adding more. Did we really need real time face capture for your avatar and all the bandwidth that requires? Did we really need simulated ice cube physics? Anyway, I want this to be a thing, but at the current pace it's hard to see it finished before I lose my eyesight and my fingers deform into immobile claws due to arthritis.
Out of curiosity, when was the last time you put money into this project?

Can you explain to me what the vision is you like?

What special about the world building?

Why do I feel I could go back throughout the previous five years and find extremely similar quotes from fans in 2020,2019,2018,2017,2016 ..... starting with some form of "it's pre-alpha/alpha/unfinished" followed by a comment on its "amazing/impressive technology" with a conclusion that "over the next year/with patch x.x you'll see huge improvements as it all comes together"

Because that how cults work.
