Are we at 10 years yet or is that in about 6 months?
Pre-production began in 2010, so we're well over a decade into development. However, we're not yet a decade from the Kickstarter which was back in October 2012.

I enjoyed some of the previous games, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

Was going to pick this up but then I read all the Steam reviews about Denuvo producing awful stuttering even on an RTX 3080 and am giving it a hard pass. Shame, as the game looks really unique and fun.

Sam Magg's is not. And they're the one who's going to be doing writing on this. For those that don't remember, she's the one who claimed she was "raped" in GTA5, while falling up the ladder of failure while destroying everything she touched to the point that companies folded.
I had to look this up, because it occurred over half a decade ago. She said in an interview that players engaging in virtual sexual assaults in GTA online are deplorable and should be banned from the servers. I mean, who cares? She's entitled to her opinion.

The question I have to ask is, why are you still going on about something that occurred so long ago? Do you get this upset about every person who has a different opinion to you? Because if so, your life must be a pretty miserable experience.

Anyone else surprised that CIG hasn't started converting and selling all these digital assets to NFTs?
There have been quite a few posts on the forums asking them to add NFTs, though they have usually been shot down quite quickly.

As with most of the game's problems, you assume this will be better optimized at a later date when the focus shifts from fixing bugs where the player dies by entering an elevator We already know they are in the process of porting the rendering to a gen12 renderer.
Ah yes, implementing optimisations more than half a decade after the game was due to be released. Totally reasonable.

Earlyworm wrote on Sep 5, 2021, 07:36:
Here is a quote from from a dev at CIG since May 2021:
However, there are two threads (Main Thread and Render Thread) which have a very high utilization depending where you are in the game. In draw call heavy scenes like Lorville, Newbab etc. the game is mostly bottlenecked by the RT. This is quite a big dealbreaker at the moment and is the major reason why the game is so slow in big locations and why maxed out single thread performance is still so important for Star Citizen. Gen12 along with Vulkan will improve this massively.
I'm well aware of the claims. But we heard the same thing with Server Side Object Container Streaming, yet it never delivered on the bold performance claims. And again, the game was meant to be released half a decade ago and that would have been with all the required optimisation. There really isn't an excuse for why performance is so bad and why everything ends up massively delayed.

CIG has lost any credibility. I'm only interested in what they have actually delivered, not the PR spin. Right now the game is a mess and performs worse than it ever has.

Yes, it is certainly playable and has been for a few years.
That's debatable. Currently with an RTX 3080 I've been averaging as little as 15-25fps during the recent XenoThreat event, and performance can be even worse at the newly added Orison landing zone. That's not even close to acceptable, even for an alpha. In fact, performance has been getting worse patch-on-patch for years now. On CIG's Telemetry page there are systems with a 5950X and RTX 3090 averaging just 32fps, which is pathetic.

Just make sure you install the game on an SSD!!! .. and have at least 16GB ram for a more smooth experience.
I have 32GB RAM and an nVME (5000MB/s/4400MB/s) drive and performance is awful.

You know the end is near when even the diehard StarCitizen fanbois that visit Bluesnews are not showing up to defend the Chairman anymore.
Are there any left? I know I was a big advocate for the project many years back but the current state of the project is inexcusable. In fact, if you check out that post linked you'll see me there and I'm highly critical of the broken promises.

Most of the backers I have met over the years have turned against the project. Sadly, there are still a lot of people who will blindly defend the project from any criticism.

Did the last free weekend several months ago. I was not impressed with this game at all. I feel sorry for anyone that payed full price for this pos.
I got it free with my GPU and... yeah, I couldn't get into it. The graphics look great though.

I picked up a new nVME drive to dual boot Windows 11, but ended up quickly using it as my daily driver. Aside from a few very minor issues with the early builds (mostly cosmetic) it's been great. I always despised the Windows 10 start menu and notification bar, so for me it was a compelling upgrade.

It didn't take me long to get used to having the start button in the centre of the display. I thought it would be worse for usability, as I'm used to quickly flicking the mouse to the corner, but it's actually completely natural. And gaming has been absolutely fine - I haven't come across any issues. Even music production, which can be extremely temperamental, has been great. And Windows Update is just so, so much better - installing new builds is done just like a typical update and takes only minutes.

For me, Windows 11 has been all upside.

Those CPU recommended specs are highly suspect. I think they are way too high. I would love to see the benchmarks. It's almost like the game is CPU bound.
An 8-core CPU does seem rather high, though it would be in line with the core count for console. I haven't had any issues running games with my 8700K and an RTX 3080, though my CPU is definitely next in line for an upgrade.

i really would love a full 2023 remake of Aliens Versus Predator 2. Game was sooo good.
Meh. I was much more a fan of the original Aliens Versus Predator from 2000. I remember LAN gaming with my brothers and we'd alternate between marine, alien and predator, and it was a huge amount of fun. It had so much atmosphere. AVP2 was decent enough but I didn't like the movement of the aliens anywhere near as much.

If I never play a WW2 game again it will be too soon.
This. I just hate how WWII has been commercialised, where it's just accepted that anyone can make a game, movie, TV series or documentary about it without any interest in accuracy. They never focus on the actual politics or present any degree of nuance.

And they're nearly always about how the US saved the day, which especially diminishes the impact of Russian forces. Very rarely do you ever see the civilian impact or any focus on the war crimes committed. For what it's worth, I thought Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway presented a very different take on the genre.

Are the SC forum moderators only asleep or are they on vacation? Since when are you allowed to post even the slightest *hint* of criticism on the SC forums without a rabid moderator going totally ballistic on the delete and ban buttons?
You'd be surprised. They often keep around negative or critical topics to just provide a pressure outlet for backers. There are a lot of people critical with the current state of the game and of the development. This is by no means an unusual topic.

It's worth seeing what people are posting about this over on the CIG forums: A Free Fly event next weekend?!

A few comments:

  • Well this really is a case of not caring how the server is and just going for it for a bit more cash, the worst patch for a long long long time and they do a freefly......... brilliant lol
  • I really feel this is a bad timing. To many bugs atm to feed trolls
  • Announcing such an event mere days after serious LIVE issues were openly acknowleged, in the hopes that a potential followup patch will fix them enough....idk man
  • This will be ... interesting.
  • It does seem ill-advised given the current state of everything.
  • In the current state nobody would benefit: New players would get a very bad first impression, current players would be even more facing crashes and low framerates because of the higher player count.. With the next patch I want at first my ships back which are currently not claimable anymore, due to 30Ks...

I was expecting this to be shit and... well, it actually looks pretty darn good. Very tempted to get one for my lad. However, the price does creep up a lot when you actually add any sensible amount of storage. It's probably better to go for the Nintendo Switch OLED for his needs, only then all the games would cost a fortune.

I like racing games, but I've never played a NASCAR game. Are they as boring as they look on TV? I prefer an F-1 style track with hairpins and straightaways to plain ovals. Also, off-road tracks or straightaways like those found in the Dirt series.
I played NASCAR back on the Sega Saturn and found it surprisingly enjoyable. Hopefully the series has only improved since then.
