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.

3.18 was not ready. We told the dev's and they didn't listen. "We don't want to rush things. Expect a turbulent launch." was the last post before 3.18 went live and it's been a complete clusterfuck. Since it's launch Friday it's been a "Choose your own adventure" game with all endings leaving you unable to play the game and get stranded.

So here's the entire bullshit with the "persistent universe" is that unlike most games that have servers. the goal is to have no servers, BUT there are servers and the ONLY way your shit persists is if you log back onto that server/shard. and the only way for that to happen consistantly is if you were in a party with someone and join back on the same shard AND if there is room on the server.

So here is some of the fun fun cluster fuck thing going on.
1) Can't call in a ship at a ASOP terminal (terminal to call in a ship to go anywhere).
2) Getting stuck so you can't leave the seat of your ship (there is a work around, and if you are in a turret there is no way out at all except exiting the game).
3) Inventory not loading. So say ya die and go back to a medical facility, you get a starting undersuit and helmet, which will not load so you are naked.
4) Mission Objective (like boarding a ship, or baddies in a bunker) not loading in at all.
5) Salvaging ships (stripping down ships for salvage commodity) was introduced, but there are only 2 ships that can do it and only 1 is buyable in game the other is with real cash. The one you can buy in game's main elevator to get around the ship is fucked.
6) One of the most versatile ships in the game the Cutty Black's pilot seat will slowly start killing you at random, combine with 2 and you're fucked.

All of these were known documented issues and posted in the Known Issues patch notes on the Test Server, and all of them went to the live server.
Again we asked/begged that they wait another week to keep working on the patches but nope.

Getting very hard to defend Star Citizen with shit like this.
