Star Citizen Adds $400 Ship

Roberts Space Industries website introduces a new spaceship for Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium's upcoming space simulation, though ship may not do justice to the Genesis, which they call a starliner (thanks GameSpot). This carries an eye-opening $400 price tag, but they say: "Potential owners and operators can rest easy: the Starliner is a ship designed to pay for itself!" Here's more on the starliner:
ith proprietary NeoG engines, the starliner allows for fuel-efficient duration travel. A pair of remote-operated turrets allow for a good defense, and multiple decks can support everything from first class lounges to additional cargo capacity. Whether itís the centerpiece of a private spaceline or part of a larger system of passenger transports, the Genesis can be used for a variety of support roles.

nobody was forced to pledge money

Nobody has been literally forced, but do you mean that everybody knew what they were getting into? If I had pledged for the initial vision, I would feel ripped off. An in-development game turning bad is the inherent risk but there have been intentional decisions to change the nature of the project and to increase the scope of the project which has led to delays, and which IMHO have significantly increased the risk of it turning bad.

I *Do* feel ripped off. I signed up for a completely different game than is being delivered.

The game that is being delivered is not the space sim going back to Wing Commander with WW2 fighter style physics that I backed.

Also, Bluesnews ate my comment last night, but I'd like to comment that this Genesis Starliner was a stretch goal (the 62 million point I believe).

So we've reached Inception levels of marketing. You now spend money on SC to achieve stretch goals (you know, additional content added "for free" if funding hits a certain point) that they now are going to charge you for. I guess so that they can reach further stretch goals that they can charge you for.

And before the SC Cult jumps on me, replace the ship with anything like... the FPS module (which was also a stretch goal) and you'll start to see how bullshit that is.

It's actually beautiful marketing if you're cynical enough.

Did the original WC games have WWII fighter physics? I just remember "turret in space" physics. Regardless, I'm sure that SC will have a simple physics model that will allow you to approximate that.

If the starliner was a stretch goal, that just means it will be in game, not that everyone will get one.
