This whole thing is just baffling, This kind of addon to the game should have came out after the original intended game was finished.
I dont see how anyone can be supportive of this kind of crap being created for a game that was supposed to be a space flight sim in an open sand box.
Its this Bullshit that has all of us backers up in arms.
But it's no longer a space sim. Once Roberts realized how much money he could get for SQ42, he jizzed his pants and went full fan-boy on his own delusional dreams of living in the Wing Commander universe, knowing that there were plenty of gullible people with disposable income who also wanted to "live" his gaming dream world.
So, that's where we are today with this massive money-sink; Roberts is trying to create the world that he wants to live in, in game form. It is literally the epitome of scope and feature creep because it is based on his whims and flights of fancy.
I have no doubt that in the near future Star Citizen will be used as a case study for how not to approach game/software design in college courses, the same way that the Denver International Airport baggage handling system
was used as how to not approach systems design when I was in college.
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.
