    The Lord of the Rings Online 2 was "cancelled" by Amazon because they couldn't agree to the terms with Tencent on their partnership. Tencent will probably put Digital Extremes on it and develop it internally. Everyone moved off New World to work on LOTRO2 is being moved back on New World and it's shaping up pretty well. They're putting out major systemic and content updates every three to four weeks.

    This is where it all falls apart. This game will never launch as a full game. It will forever be in development hell. Sure, there will be more and more game mechanics added, but it will never come together as a coherent, full game.

    *Checks* wow, is this scam still ongoing after 8 years? At this point it's sadder than the average cult, I would say.

    "no company is ever managed properly"

    "unless a project fails it’s not bad management"

    It's falling apart all over, since the very start...

    I'd say it's already pretty damn cohesive and acceptable if not for the performance issues and clunky interaction system. Add another system or two worth of locations and get server meshing in place and you can launch this thing within 2-3 years as a minimal viable product. Wouldn't be what was promised in the stretch goals but it's already more appealing to me than every other space sim on the market so I'd be satisfied with it.

    The game will launch when cucks stop buying 25 000$ ships, i.e. never. I always found it paradoxical-how can you be a person who has 25 000$ to spend and at the same time be the kind of person who would spend it on a jpeg?

    Still, I find it hard to believe those who buy 25 000$ ships are millionaires or something.

    CIG graphics lead wrote this today.

    Gen12 renderer starting with 3.14, Vulcan coming shortly after (probably 3.15). Full benefits take more than just 3.14 and after they finish they will move to remove render thread and use N+ scaling for rendering

    FPS improvements coming. Either way no one should expect more fps than 50-60 in cities until they resolve server issues.

    Shouldn't fps be completely independent of anything going on server side?

    This is tier 0 fps. But once the pipelines are in place, they'll be able to easily roll out 5-10 fps per month!

    In theory yes. In practice servers DO have huge impact on fps in a lot of games as servers themselves have their own FPS and when you have something like graphical stuff trying to render something that is yet to render on server you could easily see how it produces stalls and how servers FPS could impact client side fps.

    Though reading what they wrote they seem to go into that direction. Either way once Vulcan releases that should alone improve frames for most of people who don't have top tier cpus.

    If there was one thing to not criticize SC about it is their commitment to stretch-goals. They pretty much do everything in them and then some. Also it is not like they have new stretchgoals constantly. Their stretchgoal campaign ended at around $66M in half of 2014 or something like that.

    In fact if they would ignore stretchgoals game would be long time ago finished. It is the stretch-goals that painted them into this creep.

    Stuff like FPS, plentary landing etc were late stretchgoals from end of 2013 start of 2014.

    I wouldn't bet on it. I think the feature creep would have happened one way or another, it always does with Chris... remember Freelancer? More and more, bigger and better until the all the money goes puff!

    He has no self-control, as long as people keep throwing him money, it won't stop...

    Well something must have worked, because Freelancer was an excellent game that gave me many hours of fun.

    I think that's the only reason why people have had faith in SC, because at the end of the day they remember having lots of fun in games he was involved in. Whether he was the one responsible for the goodness or not, he's the constant in a bunch of pretty good games down the years.

    Why should it stop? They're making money faster than they can spend it on development and each year raises more money than the last. As long as we get our quarterly deliverables, I'm happy.
