    edit: good lord that was 4.5 years ago....where has the time gone...

    You got Sneeky good in that video, lol.
    We should get another L4D group together, it was a ton of fun with just the TPU guys and the TS server.

    I'm really hoping that as broad of a game as SC is, our ragtag group will be able to come together and actually help each other, run missions together, etc. I think, depending on how robust the in-game voice comms are, we may want to set up a TS/Vent server for SC.

    If this game is polished in BETA and if this group remains commited to it when it goes retail then I will purchase it in BETA. But what has happened in the past is that the actual game does not live up to the hype and people complain and eventually bail only a few months into the launch. Then we end up getting ass blasted by teenagers and college kids who have all the time in the world to destroy us.

    Bit late, but there was a thread on the RSI forums that posted ship size comparisons pretty well.
    There is a second pic further down with the really big ships in, but some of that is speculation.
    Link...

    With the amount of money I pledged to this game, I will force myself to play it good or bad.

    There's no way this game will be bad. It will be epic.

    I agree. But let's say doomsday "scenario-ists" that say this game will fail hard just shortly after launch are right(which I just don't see happening), there is still a 50 mission campaign created by Chris Roberts....

    Hell, I'll play it.

    There's quite a bit of support behind this whole endeavor. And according to the number of citizens, quite a few people who are eager to try what they have been able to create.

    Damn Skippy :) With it being based on CryEngine, I expect that IF it fell flat, Chris would find some way to get modding tools to the community, allowing for the people that WANTED to play, to make the game their way.


    But I really don't see it being that bad.

    We've hit the $39 million mark. The letter from the chairman has some nice images of the UEE destroyer to browse through.

    The $41 million stretch goal is a big one:
    **edit**

    There's also a ton of images of the destroyer in the subscriber's vault (obviously only visible to subscribers).

    Ooohh, do want. I like that it has a turret mounted under the cockpit. I wonder if it has missile hardpoints?

    Yep, that's the "Max" version. Basically has double the cargo.

    Yes it was. It's not too difficult. It just requires the CryEngine SDK here: http://www.crydev.net/dm_eds/download_detail.php?id=4 Then you just drag and drop the assets from the hangar module into it. The editor is pretty nice, you just drag stuff in... Though with that pic I went into the textures and changed them.

    I just finished this one using the editor:

    I had way too much cloud particle effects going though. Kept crashing my display drivers lol.

    No hard points for missiles this is a starter ship, Auroras competition. This one is speed and agility and lite cargo.

    The only thing that could ruin this for me is a monthly pay to play online...

    They have near $40 million, I somehow doubt Chris Roberts needs to increase the leviathan mountain of cash he already has by pissing players off for a couple million extra.

    Agreed. From the beginning, CR and CIG wanted this to be a free-to-play MMO once you pay admission fee for S42.

    I do wonder whether they'll put stuff like microtransactions in though. I wouldn't really mind as long as its just cosmetic stuff, if that means their support and development stay funded better.

    ROFL To wish I only had $42 invested :) Much less what 'Rocker has put on it! *sigh* still, It'll rock, and you won't get me to say anything else for less than $300 :)

    CR mentioned in one of the 10 for the Chairman episodes and in several forum posts that he's against the idea of microtransactions. He didn't outright say they wouldn't be there (he used his "it's definitely something we're looking into" line), but that he is opposed to the idea.
    No, S42 is Squadron 42, I didn't mistype the dollar sign.
    Also, I think Rocker and Human Error are pretty tied for amount invested, and I'm not far behind.
