Thread: Official Star Citizen Thread

  1. #1

    Talking Official Star Citizen Thread

    With the release of a new official Star Citizen trailer and the 1.0 version of "Arena Commander" (the SC Dog Fighting Module), and the fact that the first part of the "Squadron 42" single player intro game is around 12 months away from launch, I think it's time to start an Official Star Citizen Thread.

    "Imagine" is the new Official #StarCitizen trailer!

    In October I highlighted the fan made Star Citizen video "Imagine" and told people how brilliant it was. Turns out I wasn't the only one who thought so - RSI/CIG have teamed up with it's creator, years1hundred, and repurposed his video into the new Official SC Trailer, making it even better in the process:


    All the footage used is pulled directly from in-engine assets, actual game-play, existing trailers, and live demos. And I think it's looking brilliant!

    Right, so who is already a signed up Citizen? Drop your SC handle into a reply so that I can start to populate the MG-SC players list below. Add in the name of any Org you have started, or are a member of as your Main Org, if you'd like and I'll add that to the list as well.

    Anyone with any questions about SC should post here too - I'll compile all the most frequent queries into the FAQ below as the questions are answered, and also keep a separate area to track game updates and info as it becomes available.

    Oh and gimme a friendly wave when you shoot me out of the sky in AC won't you? I'm a lousy pilot!
    See you in the 'verse Citizens!

    Hey, cool idea.

    My SC Profile URL is https://robertsspaceindustries.com/citizens/Fillie

    So my Handle is Fillie (it's an alt nick I use when I don't use Blazzok).

    I joined the Imperium organization when the feature was first released a year ago. No real reasoning behind it apart from that they were the biggest Org at the time.

    Right now I am busy redownloading SC, as the launcher gave me some "metafile" error when I started it yesterday, so now I have to redo a 20GB download. And the launcher is only downloading at about a 1/4 of my line speed (max). So it is going to take several days.

    I feel your pain @Blazzok - that patch installer is a frustrating nightmare at times, I agree. Had to re-do my initial install twice, both times that 20GB+ thing, both times took days on end because of the slow server connections. Haven't had a chance to start the AC1.0 update yet myself - do hope it's not going to be a problem for me too.

    Will add your info to the MG-SC Players table soonest.

    Ahh, okay gotcha. Will edit as appropriate.

    I guess I agree, technically, that Star Citizen is not out yet. Although, I think the modular way that they are releasing component parts of the final game messes with the traditional approach to game releases.

    Arena Commander is designed to be a test bed for the flight mechanics, ship damage systems, flight combat mechanics, etc. But in it's own right, with the version 1.0 release, it is a mini-game in it's own right: various game types, (solo, multi-player, co-op combat and a separate ship racing element), gme lobby, friends lists, leaderboards and rankings if you want. When the final persistent universe game goes to full release, AC will stay in the game structure as a training module and an esports arena system as well.

    Heck, Squadron 42 (the single player introduction to the SC universe) will comprise a AAA-level standalone game all by itself. (50 episodes, 40 hour estimated game time.) It wont be a requirement to play S42 to access the SC universe, but it should be a great introduction to the games various play models: Flight, combat, FPS, trade and economic, strategy, tasks/quests, etc.

    There aren't any mods around here, you're on your own. The title is fine anyway. At least it's better than the retarded title the previous thread had.

    It's a brave step calling it v1.0. A friend and I tried to do a co-op vanduul swarm about a month ago and gave up after an hour. Couldn't even get into the co-op version of the game. I hope it's better now.
    When an anti-piracy method is affecting the game for people who legitimately bought it and causing other people not to buy the game, there is obviously something wrong with it!

    So much for my hopes of a smooth update. Just got the same error and 19.7GB patch downloading. At the reported speeds I may get to see AC1.0 sometime after Christmas I know optimisation this far ahead of launch is a bit pointless, but surely they could do something about having to re-download the entire game every time?

    Thanks Eugene. With my low post count I wasn't going to risk saying anything about that weird thread title, but hey, each to his own
