    Sure, you mean they will release in a barely more polished state than the current build, as an early access buy for much needed cash infusion.

    I meant that the game, as originally promised, is never ever going to come out, and will at best be one or two portions of it barely scratching the promises.

    This game, from day one, is the definition of vapourware.

    Yeah, pretty sure Early Access is coming someday. Their last trump probably.

    From what I've seen it's issue is more along the lines of "B'awww I spent hundreds of hours playing it in Early Access/Alpha/Beta (pick your poison), followed everything about the game I could and now when it releases officialy, is exactly what it is I've gotten bored of it and only got 4 hours out of the game"

    Game runs like shit on my 1060 right now. If it wasn't for that I'd probably enjoy alpha 3.0 more. I realise it's an alpha though and optimisation is one of the plates being balanced alongside working on more content for the game and sorting out the dire Crytek netcode. Plus I only paid about £20 for the thing. From what I've seen it has a decent amount of stuff to do for that price. Sue me Codex. I had fun with my friends playing it.

    Flying around with friends, missions, shooting shit. stealing other people's ships to crash into other peoples ships, doing missions in multi crew ships, delivery missions, Arena Commander for pvp and the FPS module. Racing. That's the shit off the top of my head. What do you want from me? Validation? I had fun. The same amount I'd have playing a shitty eurojank game at a similar price.

    The amount of content isn't their biggest problem right now. They need to get the performance under control and sort the party system out. I had fun playing with friends too, but it plays like shit even on beast PCs and squading up is a goddamn chore.

    Yup. I keep banging my head on the wall on the SC reddit every time I try to explain that 10 - 15 fps on a reasonably beefy rig isn't fucking good.. But the excuse I keep getting is "Lol get a better pc" when I'm on a GTX 1060 with 18 gigs of ram.

    3.1 patch released. I just played for a half hour or so, travelled to Yela and picked up some cargo, accepted a mission, got interdicted by pirates and then crashed to desktop while fighting them. Performance seems roughly the same but maybe a little better, still low frames (~20-25 fps) and stuttering. Good quality of life stuff added like polishing the mobiglass and being able to sign out in your ship bed. The game feels a little bit more alive because of the player generated contracts, greater variety of missions with better payouts, and the pirate's have banter and fight much more aggressively now.

    The moon surfaces got touched up

    To be fair by the time the game actually launches those will be totally sensible minimum requirements.

    Going by previous pages game is bottlenecked by CPU or ram(probably both) not graphic card. Granted 100% ram usage on 16 gb shows shinning future of star citizen in era of neverending growth of ram prices.

    Then it will never work better, because better cpu's are not physicaly possible since 8 years and it looks like it won't change.

    A couple of Around the Verse episodes go into excruciatingly autistic details about how they're solving bottlenecks and performance issues. Stuff only a programmer will appreciate.

    They are possible its just not easy or cheap anymore and until recently intel had no pressure to bother making better CPUs at all.

    Last year the only remaining consortium researching extreme ultraviolet range lithography (ASML, Zeiss, Trumpf) announced that they had reached a breakthrough and they would be ready to deliver the technology in the not too distant future. That should make it possible to create chips near the physical limits. So one more leap in technology with the following incremental improvements can be expected before the physical limits of electron-based chip design is reached.

    Seems they are really tightening the screws on refunds since the beginning of this year. People are complaining about even worse stall tactics than usual by CS incl. cheap tricks like closing support tickets without resolution due to „inactivity“.

    Cash must be really tight at CGI now. If anyone of you is still in this mess and wants to get out without a major hassle (lawyer), time may be running out.
