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.

That's at least one thing I'm rooting for RSI on. Don't compromise for the sake of lesser hardware. Build the most hardware destroying game out there. We've been in need of another Crysis.

Wait...is that like another crisis or Crysis? I always get the two mixed up. Confused

It looks fantastic, but to get what you want out of it, you need a fantastic pc and the majority do not have that. So already its shunted allot its subscribers out of pocket to get the pc required.

Somehow I doubt that people who are forking over $400 for a picture of a virtual ship for a game that doesn't exist have any qualms about spending $1000+ for a kick-ass PC to run this game if it ever comes out.

I still don't understand why people flap their gums up and down like a bunch of drool slobbering camels over SC's development. From a business perspective on revenue & production what they did is pretty genius. The game will push boundaries once it's finally released compared to whatever is coming out down the line. For a new team taking on something with such scope, 4 years in development isn't terrible. I honestly hope they are ignoring the negative shmucks and work their asses off, taking as long as possible to make it as good as they are able; massive & loaded with detail.

You can even see Sandi's creative input into shaping the Chris Roberts vision.

Sandi: "Chris, I need a dress made with lots of diamonds and golden shoes for the release party!"

And while saying this she already knew that she was just saying something very, very stupid. And the smile on her husband's face proved her right that very moment.
I see misogyny is still alive and kicking. Sad really.
What do you expect from a bunch of backseat game developers and upset children, the majority of which don't have any investment in the project.

I was out walking my dog on the trail behind my house and I ran into this guy walking his dog. Started talking. He's a developer who works at CIG here in Austin. Says he's working on Star Citizen. I just smiled and said I was familiar with the company. What do you say when you meet a stranger who owes you money?

Was it a real dog, or was it a picture of a potential future virtual dog that they paid a few thousand for? Did they snag lifetime insurance for it?

People do realize it doesn't cost 100 million dollars to make a video game right? They have made enough $ to sustain 1 video game for 50 years worth of development and sustain servers. This is a total SHAM moneygrab. It reminds me of the way penny stocks are marketed. Here's a long letter and some stretch goals every few weeks... keep sending us more $ so we can maintain our lavish lifestyles...
People do realize there is this thing called the internet right? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most_expensive_video_games_to_develop

Funny. There are those that claim CIG is running out of money with so many people working on the project. That their burn rate must be huge and that they should be closing doors anytime soon.

Then there are those that claim they have too much money. That they have enough to support development for years and so on.

So. Is there enough money or not?

StarCitizen is currently 4th on the list and the game is nowhere even near completion.

Then to top it all off, it has micro-transactions to screw them out of more pocket when playing.

This is an interesting Anniversary Video of back when Chris Roberts was first coming up with the concept of Star Citizen.

Interesting that they where filming stuff even back then. Must have been after they where shooting some tickle porn. You can even see Sandi's creative input into shaping the Chris Roberts vision.
