Star Citizen - Chris Roberts, lots of spaceship porn, lots of promises

Ships have toilets. They have no function in game. They are simply modelled as part of the ship.

What a missed opportunity for gameplay systems. You could take stool samples to monitor your health. Crew members could be assigned to clean and unblock toilets.

Plus an interaction with the food mechanism by modelling the risk of space shits should your hygiene not be up to snuff.

They just have to get the sewer pipelines in place and everything will come together perfectly.

Ship breaker and sewer lines anyone?

Ruin a game in one letter - Shit Breaker.

Gives a whole new meaning to explosive decompression.

There’s metric shit ton of jpeg possibilities here.

Haven’t had any updates from @dsmart lately, must not be a lot going on?

The next jpeg has dropped, which will no doubt make some here pop their monocle in outrage. An alien medium cargo ship for a fairly “reasonable” price (considering the size) of $225. I’m sure it will sell well because it looks quite different.

And yes, it comes with a toilet and… a scratching wall. The shape is quite cool though. Looking forward to trying it in game in a year or more… No need to buy it outside of the game, of course.

No outrage here, I find this all vastly entertaining. I definitely can’t argue with the value of an alien scratching wall. Definitely be super useful to have when the game has aliens in it. They are coming up in checks roadmap… sometime past the horizon of the roadmap.

The first 8’ of Inside Star Citizen cover the ship. It’s a cool overview of how they came up with a ship design that can accommodate 2 races.

The grav lift, bridge and component access are pretty neat designs if you like pretty spaceships.

It looks sort of like a Gundam to me, but nothing about the details of its operation suggest that’s supposed to be the appeal.

Hmph, talking heads, talking heads, concept art, talking heads. The image at 2:50 really reminds me of something, but I can’t remember what.

Ah, it might not appeal to you, but that’s the raison d’être of Inside Star Citizen. It’s a weekly show that lets the designers and developers update the community on ongoing development. I thought the accompanying images of the ship were pretty cool though. Maybe it’s just me. I’m weird like that. :)

That thing’s resemblance to some obscure starfighter is going to bug me all day.

This early candidate prototype, you mean?

Not sure it rings a bell. Is it the kind of ship you would see in a SHMUP maybe?

Yes, I am thinking it was from a video game or maybe TV show from the late 90s to mid 2000s but I’ll be damned if I can remember what.

StarViper. They both expand/fold similar too.

YES! Holy shit, thank you for removing that mental itch, that is precisely what I was thinking of. Pretty sure I had the Micro Machines version of that thing.
