I have a 8700K andd GTX 1080 Ti yet I'm getting regular drops to 3-9fps and in landing zones it averages around 30-40fps with awful frametimings. Even if all the gameplay was there it wouldn't be playable or enjoyable. And given that CIG has abandoned the roadmaps for S42 and SC there is no indication that things are going to improve any time soon.
WHAT EXACTLY ! do you actually do with all this awesome simulation crap if there is no game ??
just fly around & experience empty space..?... Using your imagination of how cool it would be to actually do something ..?
I mean, seriously... how is any backer OK with what little has been made into a playable game state by now ??
WOW, just WOW !
People essentially pay ongoing subscriptions for community updates, so CIG painted themselves into a corner. If they decided to go the No Man's Sky route of radio silence to focus on finishing the game, they should come out and tell their backers that. Maybe even cancel subscriptions stating that the community side of their open development takes too much time away from actual development. I don't believe anyone would be up in arms about that. It may even engender goodwill and help people see that CIG is now more focused than ever on completing the game. OR they could keep going the smoke and mirrors route until the game reaches perpetual oblivion, if it hasn't already.
Anyhow, closer to home, I'm looking forward to Microsoft Flight Simulator
releasing next Tuesday
