Kxmode wrote on May 25, 2020, 08:03:Your narrative is not based upon reality. I'm highly critical of the game. I think 3.9.1 is a mess and CIG was greedy for trying to combine a new patch, a major in-game event, a ship sale and a free fly weekend all at the same time. The public roadmap has been stripped of features and those that have made it are trivial or frivilous (prison gameplay, character status system, Microtech, etc). That's without even going into CIG's refusal to discuss the current lack of progress on Squadron 42, which is supposed to hit beta this year.
One thing is certain a Star Citizen thread brings out die hard hater Derek Smart and die hard supporter theyarecomingforyou. It's like Pay-Per-View Heavyweight Boxing.

The joke's on him because nothing he posts even warrants a response.
dsmart wrote on May 25, 2020, 11:57:And yet I can provide evidence to support my position:
I mean absolutely NOTHING he posted is true. In fact, the facts are pretty clear and in the public view. I do have to admit that #6 made me chuckle at the sheer ignorance (either that or he's willfully lying as always) within. It's like those Trumpers - there's no saving them.
dsmart wrote on May 25, 2020, 11:57:Classic projection. Your rage is well documented. Anyone interested should search 'Derek Smart vs vending machine'; it links to Derek's website where he tries to reclaim the narrative, after he attacked a vending machine upon being told by his publisher that he would have to ship his game rather than constantly delaying it. How interesting that you attack CIG for doing the exact thing you did. Classic projection.
But it's nice to know that I can still bring out the rage in these guys. Like clockwork. Without fail.
TriggleDiggle wrote on May 25, 2020, 01:30:Nonsense. Far-right personalities have often been allowed to voice their opinions even when clearly in violation of TOS. It's only when the backlash gets too much that the TOS are enforced and they're removed. InfoWars and Alex Jones were an obvious example of that.Beamer wrote on May 24, 2020, 21:17:
Pretty much every single "censored" conservative voice very clearly violated sensible TOS.
I agree for the most part, But I think the issue is that there is bias in when those TOS are enforced.
The far right has to walk on egg shells while the far left can say pretty much anything.

Shortly after that he injured his ankle and was out of the office for a period. He has a decent track record as a producer on other projects but he has children and it wouldn't surprise me if the work-life balance was too heavily skewed towards work.
Somewhere, although apparently Chris' brother Erin is no longer managing it. Not sure if that's good or bad. Erin actually had a good record as a game producer.
Cutter wrote on May 21, 2020, 23:40:I'm in a similar boat. Steam shows I've played Civ 5 for over 500hrs and Civ 6 for over 100hrs. The only other similar game that comes close is Cities Skylines, which I've put over 85hrs into.Rhialto wrote on May 21, 2020, 20:30:
I never played one of those before and looks like a University degree is required to understand this game.
Civ looks daunting but it's quite easy once you get into it. It's my most played game ever - counting the iterations. From Civ 1 to this, I literally have several thousand hours sunk into it. Civ 5 alone is currently 887 hours on Steam atm. If there was ever a game that I got my money's worth from, it's Civ.
jacobvandy wrote on May 14, 2020, 00:15:This is the important point. With PCs, they're still built around backwards compatability and the use of HDDs. With the XSX and PS5 they have currently top end SSDs that games can be built around. However, given that most games will be cross-generation for some time to come it won't actually end up being all that different.
So when dropping in a faster drive doesn't actually do anything for you, what you need is a change in how the drives are used, at a fundamental level. And that's what stands to happen with the new generation of consoles having them as a baseline. Or rather, PlayStation 5 having them as a baseline; I don't know what is going on with the Xbox X, claiming to use PCIe 4.0 but capping out at 2400 MB/s... Even if they're talking about real performance as opposed to theoretical, that should be achievable on 3.0.
RedEye9 wrote on Apr 21, 2020, 16:36:There are a few things that can really turn things around.
None of that sounds promising.
It will be interesting to see how the game has progressed after another $150 mill and 3 years have passed.

There's a link here for more details about the bond.
Kosumo wrote on Feb 22, 2020, 21:42:Crytek is a nearly bankrupt company that has managed to lose all of its established talent due to being unable to pay them, as well as shutting down the majority of its studios.
Crytek has a current video game that is currently on the market in a released form that is getting good critical reviews and is building a commercial following based upon their own investment.
Kosumo wrote on Feb 22, 2020, 21:42:The game is playable right now. It's nowhere near finished but that argument of yours is dated. CIG has moved to releasing ships straight to flyable instead of at the concept phase like it used to.
What CIG up to? Selling jpegs of things that they might do at some stage?
Kosumo wrote on Feb 22, 2020, 21:42:Ah yes, all delayed games and scams. What a shitty game Half-Life turned out to be and Cyberpunk 2077 looks like an even bigger scam! Is the project poorly managed? Absolutely. Does that make it a scam? Absolutely not.
Chris Roberts is a scummy man and will be using money that was given to him for broken promises to pay for making his breaking of contracts to go away.
When is the game coming out? ….. answer the call 2016?
Kosumo wrote on Feb 22, 2020, 21:42:I wonder if that has anything to do with preventing cretinous flesh-sacks like Derek Smart harassing their children? Unless going after their children is fair game in your mind?
Here is my co-worker Sandi - opps, yes 3 years later, she was always my wife, what do you mean we where not straight up and honest with you?
djinn wrote on Feb 22, 2020, 10:48:From the court filings. CIG had originally asked for more on the basis that Crytek's financial position was dire but the court stated that CIG had argued its case too well, meaning that a higher amount might be unaffordable for Crytek.Kxmode wrote on Feb 22, 2020, 01:12:
$500,000. That's how much money was in the escrow account. There was supposed be a million, but $500K represented the limits of Crytek's financial abilities. After this, they will likely be bankrupt.
Where do those figures come from?
Cutter wrote on Feb 21, 2020, 21:33:It doesn't matter what Crytek wants. CIG had managed to have nearly every element of the lawsuit dismissed, to the point where Crytek was desperate to withdraw the lawsuit. CIG was the one pushing ahead with the court action so it could be dismissed with prejudice. Therefore the question is how much Crytek has had to pay and I'm betting it's not a small sum of money.
And there it is. Too bad terms won't be disclosed. I'd bet dollars to donuts Crytek wants minimal cash and percentage of sales. This, hedging their bets, that if CIG can fleece suckers for $250 million they can keep fleecing them for a lot more.
mxmissile wrote on Jan 22, 2020, 15:47:What exactly do you think the definition of 'socialism' is? Because it's very apparent it's not related to the actual definition.
The only lesson that should be learned from all this BS is NEVER start or run your business in California. The socialists and SJWs running the failing economy and government (look at broken ass infrastructure if you dont believe me) are destroying way of life there.

Now we have confirmation from Amazon that not only did it licence Lumberyard to CIG (which was publicly known) but also CryEngine, meaning that CIG cannot be in breach of the GLA with Crytek. Not that Crytek's claim had any merit, as the GLA specifically included Star Citizen AND Squadron 42.
Crytek attempted to extort CIG and now it looks like it will be on the hook for over $500,000 in legal costs, possibly a lot more. Crytek should be focused on paying its own employees rather than filing baseless lawsuits that will create even more of a blackhole in its finances.
Welcome back to the discussion forums.
Cutter wrote on Jan 19, 2020, 18:27:You'd be wrong. See here for a legal analysis: YouTuber Law.
Hadn't seen that, thanks. Seems to me section 2.4 of that agreement covers CIGs obligations pretty specifically. And there is nothing in the amendments that changes that.
