Reference the link https://t.co/ZU5MIgTmsw. If I understand it correctly if I own several ships from an Aurora to a Constellation (which I do) then if I am flying the Constellation and the decide I want to fly the Aurora I will be charged if I switch ships because their database schmegs??? (I’ve been a DB Admin for several types of databases such as SQL, DB2, etc. and I’ve never had a database schmeg whatever that is <G>). What happens if I go from an Aurora to the Constellation? Doesn’t the database schmeg then?
If we accept the reason given this is just one more indication of how screwed up the code is (doesn’t matter where the database resides – Turbulent or CIG) as well as telling us how desperate they are and how stupid they think backers are.
It was interesting to note that the number of CIG cultists was small compared to the ones using reason and logic to point out that this is truly a bunch of nonsense.
I followed your link to the announcement about the closing of the original Planetside servers (https://t.co/pUEQKB3pII). I never played or was aware of the game but it came out in 2003 and allowed hundreds of players according to the Wikipedia article. But wait, SC will do that and it’s never been done before (according to CR) so who do I believe <G> </sarcasm>. Okay, Chris, so what’s so new about SC? FPS – done before. Trading, mining, all the other stuff – done before. Multiplayer on-line – done in 2003 with Planetside!
You can’t make this stuff up and if you did nobody would believe you. Bangs my head on table. WC evolution is what SC was supposed to be but instead we get fish tanks, liquor cabinets, commandos without clothes, ships that don’t work all for 115 million or so (the bugs are free though). It’s the end for SC. COD:IW alone has all SC is supposed to deliver as will Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Some time ago, maybe late 2013 someone wondered in a column or blog about the concept of selling jpgs. They felt within limits it was okay as at first but were worried that creating and selling jpgs would be an end in itself instead of taking the money you got and making the ships you already sold worked (assuming you had a working universe). How right they were.
When does your blog get published?
This, https://t.co/E34XpX8vvw (the @engadget link you posted) makes your case. I had not heard of engadget before but I haven’t missed anything if this is the level of their posts.
I guess it’s what happens when people do things and the checks and balances of common sense are turned off.
It’s beyond being fans of a game. Most of us have games we really like and am recommend to others (sometimes to much so <G>) but most of us are willing to say it’s good but there are these things I don’t like and accept that. We like it, we play it, we recommend it and if someone else isn’t as excited about the game as we are so be it. SC is truly a cult by any definition of a cult. No questioning of the leader tolerated at all and if you do you are severely punished, shunned, or worse. No even thinking that we and our beliefs are not perfect. And as for being wrong. We are the right way! If we do it it’s right!
Most people have boundaries that tell them when things aren’t right whether it’s a get rich quick scheme someone is peddling or some other scam and they listen and move on or if they are interested they keep their investment and potential losses low and when the boundaries are crossed and the alarms go off they cut and run. I think those left in the SC ‘verse are those without the checks and balances and boundaries.
We are making the mistake of looking at it logically and thinking about it. Taking the facts, what’s going on, and arriving at a sound conclusion. Can’t do that in the SC ‘verse.
Just when I think I can’t be amazed at stupidity you post something from the RSI forums. Cultist – “Just prove what is different in this TOS then the last!”. Duh, can you read??? It’s no different than what happens with Ponzi schemes, the mail fraud (send letter, get much money as part of our business) where people want to something for little or nothing. They buy in and delude themselves. Instead of seeing the plain facts they keep drinking the koolaid.
Sounds good. I have been denied refund, have not agreed to new TOS terms and have my emails. My state’s Dept of Consumer called and will file a complaint but that’s 35-40 day process by the time we hear back. Thanks for doing this.
Standing by, Commandos.
It’s probably a very good thing SC did not show up at E3. They would have looked like half-baked idiots. Watching videos like Major Tom and others and seeing the issues such as no clothes, T-poses, can’t get in and out of ships, dying when you leave the ship, walking through and pushing NPCs through walls just highlighted how much of a mess up this game was. Five years, over 115 million dollars and they still couldn’t do the basics correctly told me they had some severe issues. Even given poor management decent programmers/whatever should not be having these issues given a suitable game engine but they don’t have one. Then there are all the red flags to my project management side such as all the features added and not concentrating on delivering the ships sold but instead giving us liquor cabinets for our hanger. All this showed how much trouble Star Citizen is in and then we have the signs of a failing business with management getting desperate and refusing refunds, attacking/banning customers who have paid for something and denying access to it. All signs of desperation.
Then I watched the E3 trailers and I know SC is dead despite the cultists and white knight denials. COD: IW – has everything SC is supposed to have. People have helmets and clothes, they can move in space, they’ve modeled damage, it’s a FPS, it has a universe, characters move like real people, there are zero g effects. Mass Effect: Andromeda – same. All smooth even during heavy action. I haven’t found a trailer for No Man’s Sky yet so I can’t compare it.
Then I watched Morrows Tour and I see no action, just a museum tour of a partially completed ship with characters that don’t look or move realistically, the dialog is silly. No action. It’s like they are building a boring day in someone’s life. It’s a walking simulator but instead of walking around a city you walk around space ships and get animation and dialog that was good in the late 80’s or early 90’s.
