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


#5866

Who knew game development could be so complex?


#5867

So, in your blog post, you point out that the video shows a directory path at 4:27. Took a while, but by slowing it down to quarter speed I was able to make out something like “g:\gamedev\cryengine\etc.” Is that significant in some way? (I’ve never worked with either cryengine or lumberyard.)


#5868

A file/directory name can stick around long after it means anything just so you don’t have to change things on your build.


#5869

They claim to have fully switched to Lumberyard. That’s the default install path for CryEngine. I have both. So I know. It was just one thing that jumped at me. I wrote about that switch in one of my blogs.


#5870

Yes, but that’s not the case here. Plus, neither CryEngine nor Lumberyard force any paths in their tools. Also, installing Lumberyard into the same folder as CryEngine is, well, try it and see for yourself. Both are free to download.

I laughed at this. Space Madness Star Citizen is beyond a joke. Yet for some reason, I can’t stop laughing…


#5872

That’s gold.


#5873

The article is amazing, but the comments are fucking golden:

Bjorn here is my favorite:


#5874

By Bjorn’s standards, Trump is, well, God.


#5875

Yeah, we know those guys. They pop up everywhere. They’re a collective special kind of stupid.


#5876

Bjorn: You don’t know me!


#5877

I wonder which is harder: designing SC or actual IRL rocket science. It seems that if you keep throwing money at rocket designers, you end up with some pretty cool rockets.


#5878

Do you really have Smarticles that need to be kept warm using tin foil in your pocket? I read it on the Internet.


#5879

BRACE FOR IMPACT!! THE BIG ONE IS HERE!!


#5880

Yes. Why are you asking?


#5881

I’m on the edge of my seat!


#5882

I’m braced, I’m braced! Hurry, drop it like it’s hot otherwise I’ll have to do work.


#5883

My guess is confirmation of ToS changes coming as 3.0 ‘launches’ to the masses, rather than any impending financial woes.


#5884

My guess is Chris Roberts announces he will execute one backer in the street every day until the project is complete. You know, for morale.


#5885

So, @dsmart, how many companies exactly are their involved in building this game now?
