    This 'game' is looking more and more like a scam as each week goes by.

    The games ambition and scope had me interested initially, but the more I see and read, the more I am convinced that this will either never get finished and is a scam, or it will require far more time, effort and finances than I will ever be prepared to spend on any game ever.

    Perhaps a rich but jobless person will be able enjoy this game at some point in the future.

    Re: Star Citizen selling plots of land for up to $120

    I seriously hate how people report this game. This is entirely optional to support development of the game. Just buy the base package and enjoy it for what it is if you don't want to support it further... This gives you something you can earn in game and is no worse than the DLC EA sell to allow you to skip some of the grind in Battlefield. The big difference here is the game is an MMO with no end goal with limited PVP so it doesn't really get you anything (just supporting the game).

    Wish you'd have covered the new 3.0 release due out in the next month or two (which has already hit early public testers) which shows the new planetary tech working...

    Edit: Here have a 3.0 example video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Idj...ature=youtu.be - plenty more on youtube...

    Agreed with funding now well over $150 million you would think instead of selling more crap in the game,they should actually have a full release now,which BTW was meant to be in 2014.

    nice 20FPS.. you can't even play the game with decent frame rates in 3.0 because the net code on this game is trash.. don't buy until the actually have a playable game that you don't need to run offline to get decent FPS

    Calling it a scam seems harsh though, that implies CIG don't care about the state of the game which doesn't seem to be true. They just don't seem to be competent to deliver it.

    I'm interested to know why you think that? They where first put down for having nothing, they made the hangar available, they where then put down for having no mechanics, they made arena commander available (you can repeat this pattern with 2.0, star marine and shortly 3.0). Its always the same, people moan about something not being present - they then add it in the next release and people moan about something else. I still maintain the amount of content available is pretty consistent within the time frames of any other non-rushed AAA game (don't forget they had no studio when this kicked off). You just don't get to see the progress. Its still an in progress alpha and keeps delivering more and more content and all available for the price of any other AAA game with any extra purchases completely optional. If you don't like it don't buy it...

    The truth is they are taking the cash as people are happy to pay it. It takes money and time to do things right and I'd rather have a decent well made game than another Mass Effect Andromeda... I've had 25 hours out of this game and 100s of hours watching the dev videos so I've already had my monies worth so anything else is just icing for me.

    Mass Effect Andromeda failed since the story was apparently lacking and people didn't warm to the characters,which I would argue cost less to implement than the technical side of things - even the original trilogy were hardly known to be the height of technical achievement either.

    I'm sure I have been over this before, but in essence I am a software engineer who has seen lots of software projects in my years. This one does *everything* wrong.

    In short they are trying to create a massive game, and you can't do that in one go. Look at the growing pains that WoW went through, they seem to want to do all of that on day one. The longer they bottle the userbase up, the worse they make things for themselves. It is a basic principle of all modern software development systems, release early.

    Glad you are getting enjoyment out of it though, if they ever release an actual game I might give it a try.

    Re: Star Citizen selling plots of land for up to $120

    I have co-workers who have worked on the biggest-budget AAA games, at a budget-handling level - and they can't begin to work out how Star Citizen can ever exist, with CIG the size they are. And even with an EA or Ubisoft size team, they doubt it could ever ship.

    Re: Star Citizen selling plots of land for up to $120

    My mate worked on Star Citizen in Germany (I dunno how many offices they have), he loved it. Was fun to try out the game with everything unlocked but yeah it ran like absolute rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish. I'm going back a while so I dunno what version it was. I never got the point of it. I didn't wanna rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish on his work or owt like that so I just pretended it was awesome, but all the questions I wanted to ask seemed to amount to "wtf is this?" so I never asked em ha. It just seems like some sort of massive template, almost like laying the ground work for others to come in and create their own game on top of it.

    I can ask him questions about it if y'all like, gimme some to ask. Obviously keep NDAs in mind!

    Re: Star Citizen selling plots of land for up to $120

    The one thing to add regarding funding development is, as with so many other things that may be pledged for with real money right now, not only will they be available for purchase with in-game currency when the game goes live, they will *only* be available for in-game currency after launch.

    That said, everyone should use their own judgement as to whether this, or any crowdfunded project, will deliver before giving them money.

    So this game has microtransactions after $160+ million funding already??

    I'd imagine some of that funding came on the back of promised returns from micro transactions.

    Re: Star Citizen selling plots of land for up to $120

    I find that understandable but distasteful. Theree was no mention of microtransaction in the original "kickstarter" *(which I joined).........
