    Two more weeks until Squadron 42's release according to the GeForce Now leaks
    Nice two week gap between SQ42 and SC so you can experience the lore before jumping into the verse

    Looks like their cloud tech will be implemented to other planets earlier. That is Microtech with new clouds in tweet about coming expo on microtech in 3.15.1 or it could be just a tease for 3.16

    also Easy Anti-Cheat Coming in Alpha 3.15.1

    Those are all sub-techs of the only actual tech CIG has. Their Bullshitting tech is top notch. Best in the business. They make it sound like their struggles to implement tech that's been working for 20 years aren't due to complete ineptitude, but because they're inventing new things that just happen to look like old existing things, except they also don't work.

    Star Citizen developer plans 1000-person Manchester mega studio

    Star Citizen and Squadron 42 developer Cloud Imperium Games plans to open a huge new studio in Manchester, making it one of the UK's largest development houses.

    The new office is set to open in May 2022 and rehouse the company's current 400-person team based nearby in Wilmslow, before quickly and dramatically expanding.

    A five-year plan will see 700 people fill the building by 2023, before further growth to an eye-opening team size of 1000 by 2026.

    Humm, I often see people shoving off years of development time because the company “had to start from nothing!”, I wonder if we can all agree that 2022 is actually going to be the year that Star Citizen will actually start being developed on, since “UK’s largest development house” sounds fairly good for an small indie company.

    3.15 will be live today. 3.15 is apparently live for all people, will be testing tonight.

    Main features are in trailer but imho the biggest feature not shown in trailer is server crash recovery. So if you were doing something in game and server crashed you would lose cargo or whatever you had on your ship. Now you just relogin and your ship will have what it had before.



    In other news they published Q&A on Server Meshing and they officially declared that Persistent Streaming is targeting Q1/Q2 of 2022 while Server Meshing Q3/Q4 2022 and will come with Pyro system as 4.0 version. Obviously CIG made in past a lot of promises but for past 2 years they never wanted to talk about any time ETA because of those broken promises so this might mean they actually do think they can release it then.

    I'd say mid-2014 is the "start date" if we're being reasonable by their hiring. What makes this a really unconventional project is that they had no idea it would crowdfund in the hundreds of millions versus a publisher giving you a firm 100-150M number to work with from the beginning which is a vastly different dynamic. I still think they're on track to have something stable, user-friendly, extremely replayable from an emergent gameplay perspective and have the ability to do some sort of "soft launch" without wipes in mid to late 2023-2024. I'm still expecting SQ42 to come together in the not-too-distant future as well since Chris Roberts moved over to the UK to focus on that and the roadmaps are practically shared between both games at this point. Not even going to use the pandemic as a cope because their development was already optimized for "remote work" between the 5 or 6 studios they already had in 2019.

    If by-the-numbers shit like The Old Republic and The Elder Scrolls Online can take 7-8 years, why can't Star Citizen take ten? Also that 3.15 video was cool as fuck.

    So…according to you the development started in the same year that CiG had originally planned to release the game, what an amazing coincidence.

    … for all I care Star Citizen can take 20, 30, 40 years! Fuck, I hope papa Chris & Sandi have a fuck ton of kids, so that their kids’ children may hopefully finish this fucking thing. I just find it amusing, that after all these years and cash thrown at it, with a bazillion studios working on it, the “game” still consists in one unfinished solar system where you get to explore and enjoy the unfinished base systems & game loops as long as the floor stops vanishing from under your feet and throwing you to your death.

    Good stuff.

    Ok i tried new patch for a while.

    Massive FPS improvement is the first thing that i noticed. I choose my home as Lorville and previously on my GTX1080 i would get around 20-30fps in lorville depending on where i was @ 1080p. @1440p it was like 10-25fps and @ 4k it was like 5-10fps. Now i get around 30-50fps in lorville @ 1080, 25-45fps @ 1440p and the biggest imrovement goes to 4k which is now "playble" on my rig as i get around 20-35fps. Those are minimum 50% improvements and in case of 4k around 300%.

    Cities are the worst case scenario for SC so those framerates should be even better outside of them.

    CIG said that in 3.15 they partially implemented Gen12 renderer and whole thing will come with 3.16 or 3.17. Aside from that there is vulcan coming around the same time which should improve CPU performance massively.

    are you using this thread as a personal journal you keep while you plunge in the wonderful world of Star Citizen and bask in its glory?
