Star Citizen Website Relaunches, Offers New Trailer

The Roberts Space Industries Website has relaunched, offering an enhanced homebase for Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium's upcoming crowdfunded space game. They explain the goal of the renovation is to provide visitors "a more intuitive experience and stronger branding for all three pillars of the game’s development." The latest post offers a new trailer from Squadron 42 called "Welcome to the Coil." Here's a bit on what that means: "This week, we present our latest Squadron 42 feature. Take an in-depth look at the foreboding, mysterious Coil, and the design challenges our devs had to overcome while bringing this distinctive setting to life in the game."

Given how long they've been working on SQ42, I'm wondering if they're intentionally holding it back. They are probably concerned if they release it, lots of people will lose interest in the MMO game.
Not a chance. They haven't demonstrated capable AI to date, they're adding the procedural technology (which has only just been added to 3.0 and does not yet include planets), some of the main ships haven't been completed (like the Bengal Carrier), the main renderer is still in progress (Vulkan), the flight mechanics are still being worked on, etc. The vertical slice basically avoided any gameplay mechanics other than flying and first-person combat, which was disappointed due to the poor AI.

Don't get me wrong, it's going to be a great game when it's released but we're a long way from that. The move to Item 2.0 took much longer than they expected, as did Object Container Streaming - the latter is not due to much later this year and it's essential for streaming in large ships without killing performance. There's zero chance of Squadron 42 being ready this year.
