Default Star Citizen - New Videos

March 7th, 2021, 05:21
@Twinfinite Some new videos for Star Citizen which show the Orison Landing Zone & Visual Degradation system.

The first video showcases the new Orison landing zone that will finally bring a visitable location on Crusader, the gas giant in the Stanton System.

Due to the nature of the planet, it will be a complex of floating platforms, creating a very unique environment.

We also get to take a first look at the visual degradation system, that will add dynamic dirt and wear to our ships.

The second video features a round table with the development team discussing the development of landing zones.

Neat, new concepts went from a good thing to a bad thing years ago. I don't hear "cool, floating city" now. Instead, I hear "new reason why you won't see the game release for at least another year."

I skipped the part "nostalgia of a wonderful development experience with appropriate music"

The accumulating dirt and flying in weather / dirt environment is a nice touch!

I really like the whole idea of this game, it appeals to me, except there is no SP mode - not sure whether Frontier Development has removed the SP mode from Elite as well or not, it was a debate a few years back. I haven't followed the whole development of Star Citizen but I suppose Chris Robert is afraid SP wouldn't earn enough money? Though the universe could serve as a base for campaigns, missions, buyable modules as in DCS or IL-2, so we know it's a viable model.

Anyway, the main problem seems to be the lack of management to get a proper release schedule, so the SP/MP issue is just rhetorical, who knows, maybe they'll delay the game to add an SP mode

I see that Elite Dangerous Odyssey releases an open alpha end of the month and is aiming at an Autumn release. In this new DLC you can finally get out of the ship and explore or do missions on the planets, so it may be a good alternative to the never-to-be-completed Star Citizen, though Elite is not very realistic about the physics and has a very painfully long gameplay before getting any interesting ship.

I thought this might be a video of Chris Roberts waterskiing in Fiji again.

Elite made s pretty universe that is a terrible grind. Maybe it'd be more fun if I could waterski in it.

At the very least, it'll make a great tech demo.

@Capt. Huggy Face Is that Chris's woman?

I normally avoid answering a question with a question, but how much have they collected in their never-ending fundraising campaign?

They can sure spam the emails with updates though, lots of noise and such, yet so far signify nothing.

What? The game has a single player mode.

At least $413M that we know of - $349.4M from crowdfunding as of today (going by the counter on their website), plus $63.25M from a private investor as of early last year that I don't believe was ever included in the counter. Most of it has already been spent.

That would be Squadron 42, I thought they dropped that idea, since it was due 7 years ago.

In any case, it doesn't look like it's there, just another project "worked on actively" So as far as I'm concerned, the game is only MP for now, but it's good to know they still intend to do a SP game out of it.

I suppose you could ask them, but I wouldn't keep my hopes up.

I still have an Avenger, actually, and some items that accumulated along with the years like birthday packs, commemorative coins and who knows what else

Not even sure that would give access to Squadron 42.

413M$? Wow, that's a staggering amount of money. In comparison:
"According to CD Projekt Red interview, the Witcher 3 had a budget of US$34 million."

What are they doing with all that money?
