About

Star Citizen is an upcoming space trading and combat simulator video game for Microsoft Windows. Star Citizen will consist of two main components: first person space combat and trading in a massively multiplayer persistent universe and customizable private servers (known as Star Citizen), and a branching single-player and drop-in co-operative multiplayer campaign (known as Squadron 42). The game will feature Oculus Rift support.

Gotta give credit where credit is due. Star Citizen's ships are very nice. The level of detail, the design, the feel that you get when walking through the ship... It's not matched by anything that I've experienced while playing any other game so far.

The problems start when you actually try to play the game. The shields are next to useless (due to the shield holes, and ammunition that passes right through them), ships will sometimes explode all by themselves, autopilot will crash you into the planet if it feels like it,... the list goes on forever.

But the most iritating thing is the multicrew concept that only allows your friends to sit into the gunner seat and wait for the action to start. There is no other aspect of the cooperative gameplay even remotely on the horizon, and that's what's killing my enthousiasm for the game.

I've started playing another MMO space game (khm, that I'm not allowed to talk about due to some NDA stuff), and their approach seems to be exactly the opposite of Star Citizen development philosophy.

They've worked out the core game mechanics first, and left the visual stuff for last (I hope).

You would think that that would make me happy, having finally a game that actually works, does not crash all the time and has comprehensive gameplay loop. Well, the reality is that while it indeed works, it's plain and simple - ugly :(

So please, CIG artists and developers do us all a favor and apply for the work position at _THAT_OTHER_COMPANY_THAT_BUILDS_A_FUNCTIONAL_STAR_CITIZEN and make a world a better place :)

Right now I can't decide which is worse: long flight to Microtech with two elevator drives, trams and quite a long walk...

Or Lorville, with its pollution, winds that knock you off course and risk crashing (and of course, let's not forget the hangar doors which close before you take off)

Urgh... I guess it's time I take a break again :(

A trip down the memory lane from 3.6. That was a good, stable version. Sure, your boxes fell through the floor, missions did not work (but then, have they ever worked when it mattered?), but most importantly, 30k errors were very rare, for me at least...

What to do when the game crashes all the time and you can't get any profit from missions/trades/mining?

Just sit back and make nice screenshots :)
