Least appealing purchase in the entire game. It's basically a $260 LTI token. You literally earn it by completing Squadron 42's campaign in the live game.

- 1st day will be all about Squadron 42


No it won't. That's not even a rumour. It's pure speculation from clickbait SC you tubers starved of anything. There will be NOTHING for Squadron 42 at Citizen Con. We will at best get a demo for Pyro and a 4.0 release date. There has been NO indication from CIG of SQ42 at Citizencon whatsoever. We are going to get two days of mostly boring and dry "tech" talk for features that will not even be present 5 years from now. And backers will act like CIG lied and are betraying them based on their own unsubstantiated speculation. It's really fucking tiresome. But will result in entertainment from salty and entitled whales.

I'd love to be wrong by the way. You can rub it in my face if I am.


I think at least one of these events should just have a hype train like: "THIS IS WHAT YOU'VE BUILT WITH ALL YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS!!!!"

And then have a slide show detailing everyone's yachts and mansions, culminating in Chris Roberts walking in front of the crowd, slapping everyone across the face with his cock. "Thank you and good night!"

Cease the excuses.
Not an excuse just providing context. People are free to spend their money in whatever ridiculous way they choose and that includes paying real money for a ship that you're given for completing the campaign (ends with the player leaving the military and becoming a citizen in the persistent universe).

I'm still playing on my Kickstarter pledge for the minimum amount. Thanks whales.

You don't get it. Cease the excuses, buy it now.

If you are going to suck the mans dick this fucking hard, you better do way more than just the "minimum pledge", you cheap fucking whore.

You call it sucking the man's dick, I call it enjoying a video game. Try not being a cynical cunt and you might enjoy one too one of these days.

I know this is the jaded boomer hangout where old thing good new thing bad and for the most part that may be true, but this is one of the good ones and some of you are too stupid to even realize it.

-"It's not sucking a man's dick, it's enjoying video games!"

-"Apologize to Chris Roberts and become a Star Citizen today!"

Damn right, that's not just sucking dick, its downright gobbling it up, you cock muncher.

… but no dude, I do enjoy video games just fine, actual video games, not early extravagant retirement systems for a families that failed both in Hollywood and the video game industry. Plus, this “new thing” is over a decade old already, but that's fine, almost 10% already delivered, Pyro/S42/Server Meshing right around the corner, maybe next year if you pay piggies buy enough Idris!

I'm surprised many Codexers haven't, considering the overall opinion on buying Black people around here.

by the time star citizen comes out it will be a ledger of every tech-related scam from 2012 onwards. kickstarting, nfts, blockchains, what's next? will it have chatgpt powered dialogue?

@Myobi some of CIG ex-empoyes made new game:

mmo + browser grand strategy + nfts + prealpha buy shit XD

Why the fuck not when idiots keep throwing cash at junk like that?

Even I should be running my own MMO Space LGBTQQ++ Zombie Survival Waifu Sim at this point ~ Fucking ADL and his friends would feed my drug n hookers addiction for years.

It even sounds like a typical presentation for potential investors, not something targeted at actual gamers.

You didn't see anything about web3.0 ? You are in for a treat to read that garbage. Literally dudes come up first with money scheme without even designing even concept of a game and think people should crowdfund them based on their new "amazing" game they have money concept for but no design at all.

Nothing new, check something called "Earth 2", since Kickstarter a lot of people realized that dumb fucks will throw money at anything, potato salads, gamer girl bath water, farts in jars...

https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitize...y_citizencon_from_2016_to_2022_based_on_what/

Hello, me again as you know from https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitize..._bored_and_spent_9_hours_reading_through_124/

It was received generally well and I need something to do in between cargo missions so I went over every Citizen Con since 2016 in preparation for the upcoming citizen con. This will include Every ship announcement, feature announcement, with links to promises kept/broken (Even the sand worm). I noticed people said it was biased one way or another, so I will try to keep both the optimists/pessimists happy this time and provide timestamps to each feature mentioned.

2016 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuDj5v81Nd0&ab_channel=StarCitizen Major Features/announcements

  • Procedural Planets v2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdCFTF8j7yI&ab_channel=StarCitizen - Implemented, to an extend. Promises were kept and broken. Initial presentation promised 60 FPS and what was shown was in game. However, the base building/procedural generation is present in current game, just not finished. However, Sandworm, the mission, and the entire presentation was "faked" and no mission is as in depth currently.
  • Spectrum - Implemented full feature - Announcement of spectrum and organizations forming. Not much to delve deeper here - https://youtu.be/XuDj5v81Nd0?si=LfgBV4N7qP8bVtg0&t=2119 - Segment about 20minutes . One not implemented promise is spectrum in game, in game overlay, and additional customization for orgs (ingame)
  • 2.6 - Star Marine addition, AC update, Crusader map, lobby -All completed
  • New Flight Model - Completed/ we have a new new one Master Modes now
  • Camera update for 3rd person - Implemented
  • Announcements for 3.0-4.0 - Trading, Cargo, Piracy, Merc, Bounty Hunter, Mining, Refining/Processing, Quantum Interdiction, Refueling, rescue- All implemented, but years later than expected (with refueling 6 years later).
  • not implemented - Escort, Additional Solar Systems, ship repair (incoming soon apparently), Farming, Exploration and discovery, Science and research
SQ 42 - Going to be its own segment as I was informed a good portion of you give 0 fucks about it, so you can skip these portions. - https://youtu.be/XuDj5v81Nd0?si=U03AK_b92va58RY0&t=3424

  • 2016-2017 Release date promised, along with spiel about what is going to be in it. We don't know what is finished from the list, but of the list that is intriguing is
  • 40 distinct ships, 1255 pages of dialogue, AI with 24hr schedules
  • Every mission has several ways to complete it, that will affect how characters interact with you in SC.
  • They announce they will develop pathfinding logic - still in progress as of last SQ42 monthly update, animation integration - still in progress based on last SQ42 update, Improved combat logic- in progress, Mission system integration - Done as of 2021, Enhanced Flight AI - Improved significantly based on reports, still worked on
  • OCS -Implemented
  • All features at greybox or better- Controversial statement as indicated by previous post, you decide
Ships Announced

  • Polaris - In concept still, slated for production next year - 7 years
Ships scheduled

  • Ursa, Dragonfly, Caterpillar, Constellation Aquila, Cutlass Red/Blue, Hull C, Prospector, 85x, Taurus, Phoenix, Terrapin, Harbinger, Sentinel, Reclaimer, Carrack, 890 Jump, Reliant - released, though some years after.
  • Not in game - BMM, Orion, Crucible

2021 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vmf...2KG9U_7u7owS_zdagfcJEm&ab_channel=StarCitizen - Playlist, shortest citizencon since 2016. It returns with much hype and fanfare, biggest fundraising year ever, devs hyped about how much money they are getting. Largest new citizen sign ups, It was the most hype period of SC history. I cannot stress how much money they made and how much hype this year was.

Major Features/announcements

SQ 42

  • None
Ships Announced *400i

Ships scheduled


2022 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-XotXbBXs4&ab_channel=StarCitizen long one again

  • First one where CR appears a lot in (been absent from speaking roles in depth last few)
Major Features/announcements

SQ 42

Ships Announced


Closing thoughts/fun stats

  • 2016 had the most broken/unreleased/lied promises.
  • Ship from announced to release has gotten better over the years, but hilariously, 2016 had the most not shipped ships still to this day.
  • There is a noticeable reduction in "lies" or "fake" demos after 2019, there are still some, but to a lesser degree.
  • The years with the most "lies"/"fake demos" that are still not in the game and team admitted to not working on them were 2016 and 2019. With 2019 actually being worst due to the gamut of promises/showcases.
  • If ONLY Chris Roberts announces or say something about a feature or timeline, only 17% of them are in game now. Based upon 100~ statements. If Chris Roberts + a dev says similar things, it goes up to the mid 70%.
  • Every Chris Robert Timeline from 2016/2017, was 5-6 years off. Chris Roberts 2021 was 2 years off, with many features now released or soon to be released from 2021. So 2-3 years. He's gotten better.
  • If multiple devs say something and Chris roberts doesn't mention it, it has a 94% of being in the game currently within 2 years.
  • This means we want news, NOT mentioned by CR at all. Kinda funny.
  • Lore Team is the most consistent, with a near 100% completion on their lore timelines (when they release languages, flesh out lore, etc), they only missed 1 deadline.
  • Ship team had 3 reworks of ships, flight models, or damage since 2016.
  • UI has gotten a rework once ever 2.5 years.
