Star Citizen Adds Persistence

A new alpha patch arrived Saturday in Star Citizen, updating the space-based everything to all people game to version 3.18. As noted, this update is called "Lasting Memories," as it adds Persistent Entity Streaming (PES) promising "real, universal persistence." Word is: "With this new tech, all physical objects moved or placed by players will be dynamically tracked on the server they were moved on and remain in their new locations." So the good news is this is further progress towards the game's ambitions. The bad news is familiar, and also relates to persistence. The crowdfunded game is now on year 11 of what was originally planned as a two-year development cycle and it's not in beta yet. Here's the Lasting Legacies Trailer and here's more:
Cloud Imperium Games (CIG) today announced the release of the Star Citizen – Alpha 3.18: Lasting Legacies update. Available now, Lasting Legacies marks a giant technical leap forward on Star Citizen’s journey to deliver real, universal persistence with the addition of Persistent Entity Streaming (PES). With this new tech, all physical objects moved or placed by players will be dynamically tracked on the server they were moved on and remain in their new locations. Players can now leave their mark for other players to find or encounter the aftermath of other players’ actions when they log in, creating one of the most immersive and “lived-in” experiences ever seen in games. PES represents the largest significant technical update in the game’s history and is a critical addition in laying the foundation for full in-game persistence and Server Meshing that will unlock a new level of immersion in the ‘verse.

No pathtracing? No? This thing needs pathtracing! Imagine the light breaking in the physically correct melting ice cubes - this is what gaming is all about! Noone should buy a game without physically correct melting ice cubes and sunlight breaking in the cubes correctly. I, for one, would offer to travel the world and have drinks with ice cubes in all the bars in the destinations I would visit and to take pictures or even videos and send them to the new development studios "Melting Ice Ltd." and "Prism Effect Ltd." that will get funded with another few $100 million donations. I would do this for cheap: I would say $20,000 per month plus all expenses get paid by the whal... uhm... the fans. Via crowdfunding. I'm off to the airport, you can call me on my cell, Chris.
