  1. Thinking of ending the game

    I want to see them populate these amazing Tech demos that they've showed us. If history has taught me anything about multiplayer games it's that the most important piece is the net code. It's all fine and dandy that they can make these wonderful procedurally-generated cities these incredible terrains he's incredible ships with Incredible textures but if you can only do it playing Solo or with five or six other players it just doesn't mean anything. I know they've said that they will allow more but they have yet to prove that their engine is capable of that type of player density. The state the game is currently when you get a lot of ships and people together things are not exactly smooth.
  2. Thinking of ending the game

    I do agree that the money has been given. Asking for a refund is just bad form. Selling grey market I am okay with but i dont think they should issue refunds at all. It was clear that when you made the purchase refunds were not allowed.
  3. Thinking of ending the game

    It is not so much about the game taking too long for me. I understand the development cycle of a game. What is upsetting is the consistent missing of timelines and the diregard they seem to show for that. They miss timeline after timeline, and they have from the beginning. It is the hype that is draining. They get you excited over and over and over and that continous let down can be exhausting to people. If they just stopped giving time frames and timelines maybe it would be different. Its not that the game is taking awhile for me, its that they say they will release something by a certain time and then dont come even close to the time they gave. Whether its feature creep, bugs, whatever... stop telling people your going to give them something by a date then when you dont give the same tired line "do to the complexity and our dedication to quality we have pushed back the release". Its the same thing... It hurts the trust you have built with some people. The above leads directly into emotional and time investment into a game you haven't played. WoW took 10 years to develop roughly from concept to release. However, most people were blissfully unaware for a very long time into that cycle. Then a year or so before beta they start giving out little bits of information, still not promising to much. Then when it released everyone jumped on it. It did extremely well for 5 to 6 years then started to drain. The problem with Star Citizen is some people have given as much time and emotional investment to the game during that 5 years as they would have if the game existed anyway. So even without the game people have burned out on it. Its not anyone fault really, can't shame CIG/Chris Roberts for putting an idea out there that got everyone so excited they gave their all with no substance, but it happened. To dismiss those people or insult those who have built orgs, theory crafted for days, or simply spent hours on the forums is disrespectful to the very people that kicked the project off. As i have said i have considered grey marketing my stuff, not because i dont think the game will be cool but because i have already put more time and effort into this game than i have most any other game i have already played and at this point it almost feels like its time to move onto something new. I stepped down and away from positions here within TA because of this feeling because I knew if i kept going i was gonna loose interest entirely. sgtteddy i believe hit it perfectly. step back and try to not pay attention that way things really do seem new when the game releases. But i ask those dismissing his thoughts on selling his stuff not to demean his reasoning or belittle his feelings in doing so but simply try to understand why someone would feel that way. Its simply frustration and burn out. Everyone i know who has been a backer as long as i have has felt it to one degree or another and has vented the same way.
  4. Thinking of ending the game

    Your not alone... I have been a backer for a very long time. Going on 5 years now.... i remember when their website looked like it was made with Microsoft Frontpage and i too have been considering throwing my account on the market... I am just over it. I didnt even watch citizencon this year... Couldnt be bothered with it.. CIG has my money so i really do not believe they care about me as an individual anymore. Its a very different reality than it was all that time ago. Its not to say im not impressed with what they have done, however given all the time in the world and not being held accountable or to any kind of administration has proven to be their downfall. Everyone hates publishers because they push and rush releases but it goes both ways, publishers force developers to release a product and be held accountable to timelines. Something CIG has nothing of.
  5. Carrack has an ion power generator and solar panels.. Word around the verse is running out of fuel will likely not be an issue for the carrack. speculation of course
  6. The 600 Series concept Sale August 25

    Bye Bye Polaris... you ugly compared to this sweet beauty...
  7. Game Recording software etc. YouTube

    I would also suggest starting your adventures till you upgrade recording in a downscaled format to about 720p... this will free up some resources. and also if your doing it for youtube 9/10 people do not watch youtube in full screen. They watch it in the little box so the smaller resolution will look fine.
  8. Game Recording software etc. YouTube

    I do not believe your GPU is fast enough to support both playing the game and the video encoding. I would suggest encoding in x264. This will use your cpu instead of your gpu
  9. New Banu ship incoming!

    New ships no longer excite me... I am starting to understand the frustration of those before that i used to fight with when they would get upset about more and more sales... just took me longer.. i know its a multi faceted team and the people working on concept ships are not the same ones as delivering the core game... but damn so many broken promises its getting disheartening.. I have actually tuned out to the game... did we ever see the SQ42 demo we were promised at citizencon?
  10. Server question.

    I believe their goal is that if you are solo you will always be placed in a instance that is best suited to you. (lowest latency and pkt loss) however if you are in a group you will be placed in the best possible (cluster/servers/ec2's whatever they do) for all players in that group. They will try to bring the latency as close as possible to to your group members. Then the other players you see in that area will be in the same boat its the best server for them. A real issue arises is when you are chasing someone and you have to instance transfer. You can designate someone as a focus (this has been confirmed) so they can't instance transfer away from you and you can chase them into their new instance, but in that case a problem arises is likely the new transfer will be based on the person your chasing not on your connection.
  11. R9 290 to GTX1080 for 2-4k

    I will try it later and get back to you. I have a 1080 i7-6700k and 32 gigs of ram. i have ran in 4k before but currently game at 2k with consistent frames at 60 or higher
  12. I was interested till i heard of the bugs and saw the current state of animations/graphics/ui. This one has been put on the back burner for me. With games like For Honor/Mass Effect/Ghost Recon coming up very soon i dont need to spend money on something in this state.
  13. Was only a matter of time. And with all the other hurdles CIG has to get through an Anti-cheat measure is going to be the last of their worries
  14. CIG announces deal with Amazon Lumberyard

    Amazon Web Services What it is is imagine thousands of servers all working together like one unit so if one fails its no biggy the others pick up the slack. Then companies buy "Servers" from Amazon. But they are really just virtual instances. So what happens is a company like CIG instead of having to buy internet from a carrier, then servers, and then pay rent to a data center they just pay amazon one bill and they get all that. They no longer have to worry about hardware costs and upkeep. They dont have to worry about bandwidth and getting it to their rack in a datacenter. Its not cheep but it removes a lot of the worries from the company purchasing the service. It is also incredibly flexable.. you want more power just log in and give the machines more power. Its really quite simple. Also you can locate the servers in lots of places. AWS has several locations around the world like they said. There is significant amount of possibilities when it comes to using AWS.. if you have the dough. It is a true blue built from ground up Cloud Computing platform.
  15. CIG announces deal with Amazon Lumberyard

    This is a good thing in the long run. i know it sounds like maybe more stuff and moving to something "New" may sew doubt with some but moving to an engine that is designed for cloud functionality will benefit us all in the long run. I am a Sr. Network Engineer for a company that offers a cloud based platform. We had acquired a company whose product was premise based and did a lift and shift to the cloud and while it worked there were many issues. A product that was designed from the ground up for the purpose of being cloud based will be great for the game in terms of performance and networking. Additionally i have worked quite extensively with AWS and while it definitely has it quirks networking wise but performance is amazing. This is the first news in awhile that has actually made me excited. I see this as a very positive move.
