Title: Star Citizen
Post by: FlatkinG on May 10, 2016, 08:41:55 PM
been watching a lot of videos about this lately.
im a little confused about how its being released and how money works with the pledging etc. any1 clarify?

i have seen them say that u can earn anything in game without spending money.
they have said it might be over 100GB and runs on cry 3 engine open world mmo and other optional server modes, so they can send u a pen drive with it on it. there seems to be a mmo version and a single player missions version, not sure if u can just get both or changes the size of the game etc.
the ship commercials are fucking awesome(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGcvxaoOrJs), and how they are skirting big companies to reduce costs etc, so not on steam etc. they dont want to be creatively controlled by suits etc. and they want to have weekly to 2weekly additions and not yearly like EA and Activision etc. whom they consider the evil companies. so its good i think that they recognize shit game production built for money and not for quality content. they test a lot for feedback and will spend money on fixes and changes as well.
anyways any word from u guys?

Hold off until it's launch.
It's still in open alpha and not very much is available.
I know one of the devs so I got the fighter package for 20$ rather then 75$
Basically it's good, But there's not much available yet.

yeah, iv been watching the videos of others playing it for about 3 days. i don't want to go on there by myself. and i probably wont wait until release coz they will be too long i think. i can accept the bugs. what ship did u get?

Viper Phantom.
Was only available for people who backed it.

Might buy a freight hauler and look to go legit, Better money if you can set up an organization.

dont know what that ship is :/ not in the list that i can tell. but yeah its still in alpha, but they have changed a lot of the benifits that go with shit, so u might have just made it to the lifetime warrentee for ur ship. they stopped doing that for backers now. anyways i had to go with Aurora MR, pos to be honest but it came with 1000UEC, a hanger, both single and multi, 3 months warrantee on my ghetto ship. so its an ok starting point i guess, i mainly just wanted both single and multi. the only other choice i had was to get a mustang alpha instead, or pay a fuckload for a fuckless.

yeah i wanted to try go the direction of legit cargo or cargo escourt, kinda like a fuck pirates thing, as well as a fuck trolls direction.

whats got me keen tho is seeing the concept ideas for the retalliator base ship. they have heaps of mods to put in the cargo bay, one of which is a 16 soldier drop pod transport thing, just like starship troopers. im helllll keen to get that in my hangar and then perhaps try get players to load it up(as well as its 5 turrets and engineer bay) and chuck them into fights. but ill have to wait till its released as they are working on it now.

so after playing it, its a fucken sick game so far really.. its defs not without its glitches but still when u compare it to the glitches in space engineers its probably the same as far as quantity goes, the difference is that the platform is far superior. the training mission i done is sick, u can really see how one could become a "great" pilot compared to those who just play it bf2 style. theres so many little tricks and techniques to piloting. coz u got 3 speed modes and each use different methods of using different thrusters. so u can go full piss then smash on ur taxi thrusters to do a spin in the air then full power ur main thrusters to power out in the new direction, then ur guy wants to black out from the g-forces so a system comes online to reduce the speed or curve to a safe limitation so u dont black out, u can turn that off and gamble with ur life tho. if u black out in asteroids or a dog fight ud be super fucked.
come play with us scorpy? :)

if anyone does get this game, u put this code in the referal code box during making an account and u get 5000 UEC ingame money, i dont think u can put it in afterwards.

STAR-64JW-SWBN

... oh and scorp check out his big ol cunt. nowhere near the biggest but fuck is it nice on the inside. i lost all sense of direction watching this vid, would have loved to be able build this shit on space engineers.

Just had the best dog fight at yalla against two cutlesses. Apparently they aren't used to people who can fly properly. Called me a hacker and shit.

Got this finally.. Looks like I might need some more RAM...

Video seems ok once Im out of the Hanger but RAM is maxed out and so is CPU..

i saw a graphics driver setting in mine that showed that it trades off between gpu and cpu, instead of loading the cpu first. u should see if u have that option.

wow so i refunded my combo package and then used the refunded store credits to get the mustang combo instead, the aurora is worth $25 where as the mustang is worth $30 even tho its the same combo price. so once i have the mustang again i go into upgrade ships, i then trade in my mustang to get $30 toward an upgrade, and paid $5 ontop of that with real money($7 AUD) and got the Aurora LN. went into vandul swarm to test it out and its sooooooooooooooo much better than the original Aurora MR. which means that i can rake in my REC quicker for upgrades to other big fighters like the hornet/sabre etc. i already made like 4k in 2 games.
i was able to attach that new gun that u got me scorp from the sign up process to the side of it upgrading one of the crappier guns to a stupid fast one, that also helped alot.

my cpu temp wont seem to go above 55 but sits at 35 most the time, i didnt seat the cpu paste very well tho so i was a bit concerned about it. the graphics card is getting anywhere between 25fps - 140fps, depending what settings i put on it 25fps was with highest graphics in a bunch of explosions with lots of AI shooting at me(maxed driver quality).
i put it on medium graphics and most the times its about 70fps and 40 in a big fight, ill try out performance mode now to see what happens.

that game of vanduul swarm u quit in i was able to go to the end, u can check ur REC now. that other pilot quit half way through it so had to do most of it myself, damn that hornet really takes a beating and just doesnt give a fuck. no wings or tail half a roof and still fangs.

ur jpg was broken coz all that script shit on the screen, but yeah u shouldnt have got much u only got like 2 kills or something, out of about 100 so yer.

but something else i noticed, i went into the universe and i was able to spawn my rental ship with its gear. so it seems its not just for arena commander at present. some random jumped into the rear seat and overheated the gun on asteroids, got out or dc or something. then the ship was bugged, it just kept overheating when i get in and would shut down, so i had to can it.. glitch! when i was asking for a pickup in space the game crashed anyway. i also had hell low FPS in the universe(12-25) where in arena commander its like 30-75. i think the server i was on was fucked.
