"Under the hood" changes are entirely fucking retarded because the fucking patcher downloads the entire game for every patch anyway....

Or they could just do patching in a sensible, or at least, non retarded way.

I don't care what game is in question, patches that cause one to download more than is needed, nevermind loads more, is a sign of either stupidity, incompetence, or simply an attitude of not giving a crap about customers. Even an untrained desk-monkey could be shown how to make a delta patch if they can't be bothered or are unable to make a decent patching process.

it's not as simple as you propose. cryengine uses these huge piggy data files which are encrypted and change randomly all the time. so making patching better involves changing the development and build process, not just the patch distribution and patching process. they'll get it eventually

they've spent months working on patching, and we know this because they've spent months talking about working on patching. I think they may have even laid off some of the people working on it and given the job to the formerly-cryengine team in germany

Elite Dangerous had got 1% of what this game has had and yet its been out for ages, ok its just a sandbox, yet it is still finished and working.
How long will it be before star citizen will be out of alpha?

both games are utterly incomplete

I wonder how much of that money they're wasting on big actors?

Figure about 4-5 million per A-List actor for 4 months of voice acting and MoCap performance.

- Gary Oldman (5 million)
- Mark Hamill (5 million)
- Mark Strong (5 million)
- Gillian Anderson (4 million)
- Andy Serkis (5 million)

stop embarrassing yourself and stop posting in star citizen threads. honestly, stick to topics where we can't tell you're crazy. because now that I know, I won't be able to unsee it. you're ruined for me forever

...You don't actually work in the industry, do you?

not like you do. tell us all about your experience working on GTA and elder scrolls. because that's what you're comparing star citizen to, right? the other big games you've worked on for 5-10 years?

everyone criticizing this game for not being done is stupid. all games are not done until they're done. where were you in 2002 when half life 2 was a disaster? that's right, you were sitting at home, happy and ignorant because they didn't show you any of the game's development.

this is your first experience with game development. what you thought was game development before was actually marketing materials made by ladies upstairs for gullible geeks like you.

star citizen will look bad until everything comes together 1 month before release, just like every other game you have no idea about. keep sucking your thumbs

I can't tell jealousy apart from anti-capitalism here. is anyone actually concerned about the welfare of the people buying this ship? I feel like the people with such disposable income must be okay, so I'm personally not worried

The unlawful part is advertising unlimited and it not being unlimited. Not the booting or capping. They're allowed to boot and cap people. They just can't call it unlimited and boot and cap people for passing the limit. That's unlawful in any country where the good people have the power.

The only diffence I see is that they are talking about it being multi player. (which is a massive diffenace I will admit)

and that star citizen maps can be millions of miles

they demonstrated traveling 3000km / 1800 miles at gamescom, but it kind of went over the heads of the press http://www.infinitelooper.com/?v=1qLcXt9Hxxo&p=n#/242;271

the game looks fine because progress is being made. I do think their schedule estimates will continue to be wrong. but the game will be finished within 10 years (normal for something new starting from scratch) and people will get what they paid for.

Comments like these are the reason I LEFT the RSI forums.

let's just say it: you spent money on nothing and now you regret it.

you made a stupid decision, and now there's nothing you can do about it. your only recourse is whining online with other people who buy things that don't exist yet.

none of this is the fault of the developer. whether they succeed or fail, YOU screwed up first, and you take even less responsibility for this failure than chris roberts takes for his.

From Kxmode's post:

Proof that these guys only care about your money.

He asked for a refund a year after he bought it? That guy and anyone who agrees with him is incompetent.

I would be interested in discussing a law that makes crowdfunding donations/purchases refundable up until the date that the final product is released. I'm all for human rights. But such a law does not exist.

I picture this guy wearing rags to the local walmart to return unopened coca-cola which hasn't expired yet. Dear sirs: I need that money back. I haven't properly thought out my decision to invest in coca-cola

chris roberts should admit that his estimates are shit, but he can't because he's a narcissist. that said, if ANYONE tried to make this game it'd take 5-10 years. so criticizing him for not being done before he's done is ignorant.

every project is a clusterfuck of delays, and the only difference here is that they're telling you about it

reddit is a good concept and policing is not. the policing will not stop at the hateful reddits. the site will lose its distinctiveness over time and so will become irrelevant
