    Where are you located? When did you back the project? Roughly how much are you in for? If you don’t want to disclose this in public, just email (dsmart at live.com) or DM (http://twitter.com/dsmart/) me.

    Anyway, just be sure to keep all the correspondence.

    Hi Derek,

    Actually I mentioned the TOS and how they’d have to refund me anyhow on June 1st and the guy categorically denied me saying that they had earned the money through development of the game and that even though the requirements had changed and my PC won’t be able to run it they won’t be refunding me at all June 1st or not.

    Sorry folks.

    SC is done for!!! Here is the nail in the coffin. The other space sims from Activision, etc. were just the beginning.  This one is the BDSS ever!  From the people who brought the world Goatsim (never heard of it until I read this).  Watch the video in the article and read the article.  An excerpt from the Register’s article.

    “Entitled <i>Waste of Space</i>, the expansion’s premise is that players “get to beat or trick people into crowdfunding you their hard-earned money, and then spend it on your own dreams of being a space McGyver in space or whatever space nerds do instead of huffing paint in their underwear like normal people”.”

    I wonder if the people at Coffee Stains Studios were Star Citizen backers!!

    Its a minimal viable product. Not a maximum vibrator product. Go watch the promo video, you will find this thing is a scaled down version of Star citizen scope poop creep with all the stink in the same flavor, the be all end all board game that has immersion role play and complex depth world. A bunch of idiots give em 50000+ to make some cardboard handout that probably cost less than the package it came with, all because some self proclaimed figure head told em they can be space hero.

    You have got to be shitting me.  This can’t be life.  This is a scripted reality show being acted out.

    Star Traders  (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/239709734/star-traders/description)

    How did I not know this was a thing.  (Well, I know why, couldn’t be bothered to follow this crap.)  Have backers linked the projects yet or has it gone over everyone’s head?  There was a WingMan’s Hangar back in late 2013/early-2104 with a discussion about the in-game economy.  The design decision was to create a pen and paper game to “nail down the mechanics and make sure it was fun” and then implement that in Star Citizen.

    Like all things Star Citizen, from what I know things didn’t go well.  Ladyman was laid-off and hired back on a contract basis to help with an occasional Jump Point?  I think one of the jokes in the office was Ladyman can’t get a spreadsheet to total a row of numbers, much less code an economic system–so of course he was making a pen and paper game.  So backers backed CIG, CIG hired Ladyman and tasked him with creating the economic model for the game, Ladyman came up with Star Traders, was laid off, took his work and created yet another crowdfunded project.

    Not 100% sure of the facts–but at least we know where the Star Citizen economy can be found….

     

    edit: Also a little strange to see Clifford aka Miku from INN on one of the art slides.  Certainly seems to imply there is a good relationship between Ladyman and Miku.  Sure makes you wonder…

    This is a good procedure and goes well with our current version. We’re going to be working on a new and more comprehensive version by the May 31st date.

    Just thought I would share my experience of trying to get a charge back done.

    After a couple more months since CGI refused my refunds claiming this absolute mess of software that won’t even run on my computer despite Elite Dangerous running fine has made great progress I finally attempted a chargeback and got no where fast.

    Contacted PayPal, turns out their secure messaging system is completely busted and has been for months so my messages went no-where, great! Phoned them and they said it’s over 6 months (I backed in August 2014 expecting delivery in November 2014 as promised) so no joy contact your bank.

    Bank said it’s over 120 days so no joy contact trading standards. Trading standards have opened a case but I have to email them in a standard template giving them 14 days to respond detailing everything they said would be available by November 2014 and isn’t available now.

    Just bear in mind you might not be able to chargeback at all!

    Sorry folks.
