Star Citizen
wdboyd
I remember trying to team up and when we went to warp speed, or whatever they call it, everything when haywire. It wasn't a good experience.

I remember how clunky it was to team up at all. It was embarrassing because I had asked a couple of others to join us. I had purchased ships for them earlier to support the game. It as very disappointing.

I remember repeatedly falling through the crafts floor. Not a good experience at all. Most frustrating.

It's been over NINE YEARS. They should have some things working well by now. One would think so anyway. Check out their forums. One can get a general idea how the game development is going.

Let me know how play goes for you when you venture into their world now. bigsmile

Revealing Quote from RSI General Forum.

" I bought this game back in 2015. I never installed it. My computer at the time was not up to the task. I ended up traveling a lot around the world, and had no chance to get a dedicated games system going on. Then when I did get a games machine, I was too busy to lay the time into a game such as this. I have waited 6 years. I figured that in 6 years they could really get a lot done.

I had the usual learning curve I guess. Figuring out the controls. It's not too hard really. I have laughed at the visual glitches. People standing on seats. multiple models occupying the same space. I have put up with some medium level but not game or soul breaking bugs. The 3d map thing being wholly buggy and broken is one of them. Seriously, did they let the new intern design that thing?

One of the biggest problems is, the game is downright dull. Probably the only interesting thing is the bugs. virtually no NPC dialogue or interaction. Nothing interesting actually happening. Just a bunch of animated dolls standing around. I have tried two delivery missions. One of them.... kind of worked. After dragging these ... things halfway around a planet, I put them in this storage.... thing. The action command does not want the damn thing to line up and go in to the opening. First one I managed to get it in eventually. The second one, went in, but apparently not correctly. And there was no way for me to push it, or pick it back up to try gain. So eventually I had to cancel the mission. Wasted about 2 hours on it. And it was a waste. A dull, dull, waste.

How after 6 years can this game be so.... bad?

It is a strange, empty and sad feeling that I have after finally playing this."

This about sums up my thoughts about Star Citizen. Yes, sad is the feeling I would suggest. asad

Well I tried it and I have to concur with whomever made the post that you quoted above. It is truly remarkable how little progress has been made in the years ( I can't even remember for sure how many) since we ventured together into the persistent universe of Star Citizen. The only improvement of any sort that I can confirm is that loading times seem to be much better. I can recall waiting for what seemed like an eternity for things to load before. Everything loaded rather quickly even on my secondary computer that I built after my ALienware Alpha was renedered useless by a Windows 10 update. This backup system is faster than the Alpha, but it is by no means a high end gaming rig by today's standards and I do have to say that the game ran well on it which is at least something to be impressed with compared to before. The real fun came when I booted up the gaming beast in the basement. Since the last time we played, I build a Raid array of 5 hard drives and man oh man does it fly. The loading time of that array is faster than many SSDs by a pretty good margin. We are talking seconds and not many of them to load Star Citizen. So to sum up my experience. It was really good at the beginning. Once the game loaded there was nothing really to get excited about. Very sad.

Hello Commanders

I will probably try it again to see for myself. I find that they seem to be continuously reinventing the flying mechanics. I am also getting the emails regarding updates, but generally not impressed. I believe they added some new ports to visit and missions to complete. But feel the complexity of all they want to do, overshadows the actual gameplay. The one thing that bothers me is the progress of squadron 42. That should have been released awhile ago already. I don't always feel like downloading another 30 gigs of an update every couple months. Besides all the new ships being developed, but not really playable . negative Just get on with it. It seems they are just asking for more and more cash. I remember the original kickstarter was for 2 million. Now look where they are, an ever infinite roadmap of developement.
There is a you tuber called Morphologis i sometime watch. He often covers Starcitizen, and seem a little bit more hopeful. I originally heard of him through playing Space engineers.
Will try it out again, and give you my thoughts.
