Star Citizen Schedule, Videos, Sale

A new Letter from the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries offers a whopping twenty-two hundred or so word essay on the state of Star Citizen, the upcoming space combat game. Chris Roberts notes they are celebrating the fourth anniversary of the project, which includes a sale to support their now-stated goal of not stopping at their original stated goals. On that front he says, "The additional ships are rewards for helping expand our dream, to make sure we continue to go above and beyond what we set out to create." The post also includes a link to the Production Schedule Report mentioned last night, broken into a number of complicated subsections, but they all seem to be end at the release of alpha version 2.6 on December 8th, and don't seem to offer any outlook on when to expect a full release. The news is also accompanied by a few new videos from the game (thanks DSOGaming), a Star Marine Preview, the Big Guns of the UEE, and Behind The Big Guns of the UEE. Here's a bit from the blog post on their reasoning for selling still more ships for the uncompleted game, and it's doubtful that anyone would argue his point that no other game offers their options for "refactoring" pledges, since they are way off in the uncharted regions of crowdfunding:
The desire to continue to improve Star Citizen is also why we have begun offering an incentive to purchase a new concept with fresh money rather than melting a ship and using store credit. We offer backers a more comprehensive system for melting and refactoring their pledges than we had ever dreamed possible back in 2012, which is a system I believe no other game offers, and as a result you can often swap to a more favored ship without impacting funding at all. We built this to allow you all to be able to purchase a ship with confidence, knowing that if something you like better comes along you can switch out to it with minimal hassle and no loss. We do not intend to change this system, but maintaining it means that we need to find other ways to encourage new contributions rather than just recycling old ones as the continued funding means we can continue to make the game as good as it possibly can be. Going forward, these cash sales will focus on newly introduced concept ships and top tier limited capital ships.

Ship the game. Add ships as dlc later. This is how STO has been running. But you cant do that as all the money has gone on blow and hookers.
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.

Caps lock key is intermittent, maybe they should give you some of the money for a new keyboard instead of using it on the game. nah

I never use the caps lock key. They need to pay me for destroying the shift key on my keyboard.

Not just in the salaries of the hundreds of people pouring their hearts into the project, but in the unpredictability of the groundbreaking technology that we need to develop to achieve a game of this scale and detail.

Translation: All the timelines we will give to you mean NOTHING because of the unpredictability [of the chairman] and scale and detail [that the chairman asked and is still asking for].

Project implosion within the next 12 months, I am afraid... Unless the believers buy SHIPS! AND MORE SHIPS! AND FLEETS!!!

Also want to know the specs of the systems, cause we went through this shit with Alan Wake and the mega computer from the future they used for the tech demo's and come to find out it was pretty much gutted to work on a 360.
Fuck it.

I will say this: It is unbelievably pretty. Is this all in-engine? If so, that's just ... Drool

Really cool music too in the second video.

This is going to be the best game ever, after a few more delays.

The most important part I think is the sharing of the target dates of each piece.
But it's only for 2.6

Do these ships that are on sale at least have a picture? Or is it more of the "We haven't actually designed it yet, but the scope of the ship meets our projected standards" bullshit?

(and people still bought that... Literally just a sentence that said "This ship will be made at some point.")

Ah well. Keep pouring money into it, fellas. Maybe some day at least Squadron 42 will be made.
