    It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. Then they could sell the 1st ship off the line, which will eventually lead to someone getting the last ship off the line.

    TBH, I'm surprised they haven't started selling yearly models for each ship; eg: the 2950 Origin 300i, 2951 Origin 300i. Perhaps having certain models become discontinued, or even have a manufacturer go out of business, and thus artificially increasing the price of many ships.

    a really great example of recently added in-game systems leading to more organic combined arms gameplay.



    i think that there are still some iterations that i would like to see like adding manned/remote laser/missile turrets, that can include hacking gameplay to take control of them and have them get disabled instead of being destroyed, requiring repair to regain use of them. this will help to equalize ground combat versus aerial supremacy, but still provide opportunity costs for ground forces in order to benefit from the turrets.

    I mean I could go on but what is the point. You think them raking in money is winning. You should want a released game to play so you could point to something worth playing for people to jump on and play. The game isn't close to done, it cannot host more than 50 people, it does not have a single player campaign. Winning indeed.
    Their winning because a game with those features is being developed. And since there's no other game providing that kind of gameplay or other company attempting it (at least that we know off) it's only normal that funding keeps increasing as more players enjoy what the game offers now and what it's thriving for.



    Imo it's worthy for the truck simulator in space experience alone.

    There is a reason. It's called "feature creep". Everyone dreams big, but plans > dreams.

    EDIT: double checked. Apparently it is so.
    While 3.16 is technically on live, the majority of the features for 3.16 are not; I think only 3 of the 18 features made it.

    Honestly all the hate this game gets from some people I think is having the opposite effect of what they want. They are just giving it free publicity so then people like myself who hear about it figure they will at least try it out during a free fly to see what all the fuss is about. Many are instead actually blown away with the experience and then realize most of the hate is just FUD.

    The 48 hr Jumptown 2.0 was one of the coolest experiences I've had in gaming even with my measly starter ship where people were either cooperating or fighting over control with attacks and atmo ship battles. Even got blown up by an a2 dropping a moab.

    welcome to The 'Verse O7. glad you are enjoying 3.16, don't forget to also check out the other event happening called Ninetails Lockdown, where you can choose to either fight for or against the Ninetails criminal gang, but you can only choose to be on their side if you are already have a crime stat, but it's the best way to guarantee pvp, if that is your thing.

    i saw this Machinima and the premise made me laugh, thought that some of you here might enjoy it too.

    What will happen first: Star Citizen releases, or SpaceX lands starship on the Moon?

    Define "release". Will there be a "release"? Perhaps. Will it fulfill the promises made back in 2012? Almost certainly not.

    Well, we're 10 months away from the 10th anniversary of the Kickstarter. What's another decade at this point?

    Oh darn it, so much for my big brain attempt, well played, well played ;D

    I'm not sure if another decade will be enough though:

    Star Citizen will ship its first real alpha build by the time we are colonizing Mars.

    It hits extra strong when you realize that it might be more feasible to go to space before playing the actual Star Citizen.

    If only we could actually play Star Citizen while we wait until it's feasible to go to space...

    It would make the wait so much easier.
    Like the mighty bounty hunter Greasy Khalesy would say, it's all in the mindset.

    Having convinced yourself that playing basically what amounts as a prototype slice of a game does not mean you're playing actual game in reality. So in essence you're correct at least this once, it's all in the mindset.

    Its a game you can get hundreds or thousands of hours of gameplay out of it, doesnt matter if the game is not complete its still worthy of being a game by itself, but all you want to do is talk shit about it every chance you get. Simple fact is the alpha is better than many fully released games.

    such tortured logic. playing a slice of the game is still playing the game, how is this so hard to acknowledge? the Stanton system that we can play-test right now, is the same Stanton system that will be there at release, though much more fleshed out at that point, so how can you even come to the conclusion that you are not play-testing the game? let's try and argue on the merits and not make up scenarios that do not exist in order to try and push a particular narrative.
