      Yes, sorry, I forgot to mention. The ATV part at about 26:00 minutes, where they show the Bengal Carrier and talk about it “coming together”. You are probably right, it’s only preparation for the next trailer…

      Trailers, cutscenes, videos renders, some models, jpegs, clothes, but no game. Where the fuck is the game? How can people stay calm with that? How can they still say stupid things like:

      “But it’s Alpha… listen to me….it’s an Alpha…. no… I mean…. it’s Pre-Alpha.. Pre-Pre-Pre-Alpha, okay? Pre-Alpha was it until now and Alpha has just begun. So everything is fine. It’s perfectly okay. ”

        Thanks, for the article. It’s always refreshing and eye opening to see how much they lack behind their timeline. Meanwhile I am not even sure they can deliver SQ42…

        There was this recent Bengal Carrier footage shown and the guy talking said something about “coming together”… Seriously? I mean at this point in time this carrier should have been finished. I fully assumed this carrier would be part of SQ42, but now some people are rumoring this carrier was never meant to be in the campaign, because “you’ll have the Idris”. They must be kidding… Afaik, CR mentioned, that you progress in the campaign by starting in a smaller carrier (Idris), and are later shipped to larger carriers (and most likely the Bengal Carrier). What the fuck is this…

        Aside from that, the Bengal Carrier looks the same as in the kickstarter trailer. As if they’re trying to serve the same dish again after 5 years to make people excited again. But what is the difference? Where is the progress? I see none. This is getting ridiculous…

         

        Btw. Derek, in my browser (Firefox 45), this giant topic General Discussions is a pain to load. It stutters for at least 2 minutes, loading all these images and videos. Maybe you should add a new section “General Discussions 2” or so… or maybe it’s just the browser which sucks.

          Funny, I actually made the same calculations with their money (just writing as of now). With a burning rate of 3 million $/month, their money pot will be empty end of 2016. And what then? Then it’s over. Over and out. Money stream has slowed down already…

          I am pretty sure no official publisher will take the risk taking over this trainwreck Рespecially if they see what a trainwreck it really is. Nothing there after 5 years.  Maybe 5% done? The only thing I see being completed is the single player campaign Рand even that is highly doubtful. I mean, they have only 6 months left before running out of money. And we never saw anything from the SP campaign but a miniscule section of the game (some starting scenes, walkthrough of the arrival on the first capital ship).

          Well… maybe… when CIG is “finished” (by means of finances), a publisher will take over and give them money to finish their Singleplayer Game (but not their Multiplayer endeavors). And this publisher will enforce strict progress control. Then we’d probably get a Wing Commander 6 (Squadron 42), removed off all feature creep, without Coop (which was already trashed), without Multiplayer, without Persistent Universe, without Star Citizen. I really can’t see Star Citizen happening… maybe Squadron 42 will see the light someday and after many hard pushes, but not Star Citizen. All this money for Star Citizen is lost.

          That said… it’s unbelievable that most game magazines stay quiet about this mess of a game. It’s like they only repeat pink flowers, dancing elephants and purple dream bubbles. Journalism at its worst. When I see people at this point still claiming “everything is OK”, I almost wish their dream to be crushed. That is an evil thought, but people staying ignorant is also evil, because it allows shit to spread and pull others into the abyss. However, hope is not lost. The critical voices are rising. They become more every day.

          Man… I don’t understand it. At the time I heard MMOG at his first kickstarter I facepalmed already. If Chris Roberts had just focused solely on the singleplayer then we’d probably had a game by now. And after that they could have still made a MMOG. At least they would have had existing(!) game assets for the multiplayer game (and not only sketches which exist on paper). But no… they chose the decline. Just thinking about all this shit with selling pets, hats, underwear… it’s so retarded it should drive the honest backers mad.
