Wow this game just looks amazing.
More than that, it tackles something games like Eve have been struggling with for years..
Transition from space to planets in full detail.

I am all over this when it comes out..
Already bought an Advanced starter kit with some amenities. :)
FB shared and converting everyone I can. lol..
Finally the game I think I've been waiting for.

I also want a decent single-player, but, as a veteran MMO player, my other worry is that Star Citizen will be too restrictive as an open-world MMO.

They say they don't expect Eve-style space wars - how are they going to prevent them? I also hope for some form of competitive co-op PvE component.

The game has a fully realized, single player campaign btw. ^^

But there is no way to say at this point how the game will actually be..
I would not assume there is going to be no way to play solo.. Just like eve, which is an MMO, you can play solo in high security sections, with no real fear of getting into PVP.
Not to mention other types of things you can do solo.

I think it's a fair assumption, to think these guys would implement something similar, to not force everyone to PvP.

I also want a decent single-player, but, as a veteran MMO player, my other worry is that Star Citizen will be too restrictive as an open-world MMO.

They say they don't expect Eve-style space wars - how are they going to prevent them? I also hope for some form of competitive co-op PvE component.
Open world?
Not even to this day can you explore planets in eve. Much less actually enter and leave them seamlessly..
That is already a feature in this game.
Eve will never reach that point. I highly doubt it.. They care more about calculations than fun..

Did you watch the video? You can click on EVERY single star..
There are more stars and planets than you would try to count but you can click each and every one within view so far..
That to me says, each one will be a potential destination.

CO-op PvE? The game is almost Alpha..
It's a no brainer, that they would implement something like that, I would think.

How to stop eve like battles?
They are making the game.. They can do whatever they want in the programming to make it so..
It's that simple..
Regardless, when those huge battles break out on Eve, it takes the server to it's knees.
We get movement restrictions, crazy lag that is beyond insane and everything bad that comes with it..

The assumptions I am reading so far that they won't implement things, that are just common sense, are kind of confusing me..
It's like being concerned that when you walk outside today, there won't be any air..
There is just nothing to support or validate those concerns..lol..

Watch the video on the sites main page. There will be tons of open world and constant updates.
I quote: "Serious updates bi-weekly, not monthly or yearly.."
Pretty much verbatim.

This guy is supposed to be some kind of prodigy in terms of game making and the team he is using, is so high caliber it's insane..
We're talking modelers from things like Star wars, Avatar and seriously high end people here.

Eve has fallen short imo for way to long. Pretty much like every Russian MMO, they concentrate on numbers and calculations, with minimal actual fun..
If anyone can figure out how to make a winning space game, I think it's these guys.. Read up on them a bit and you'll see why I have high hopes.
They are well warranted..
:)

I know there's another thread on this.. can't find it.

I'm in with Bounty Hunter level with the 300i and I just got the Aurora ship as well.

300i: http://starcitizen.wikia.com/wiki/File:Origin_300i_overview.png

Aurora: http://starcitizen.wikia.com/wiki/Aurora

It would be great to get a squad put together and get a Constellation or something.
Awesome.. Yea there is.. But it wouldn't let me post in it since it was so old..
I am sooo getting the 300i.
lol. You beat me to it!

I got the advanced starter kit with the aurora LX and that new switch thing for changing your ships color scheme easily.
Came with lifetime insurance.
It's some kind of limited time thing they are doing. If you buy a pack or something, you get lifetime insurance for being a supporter.
The easy color switch and lifetime insurance, are for a limited time and will only be available now.. Never again from what I'm told..

For sure would be nice to get some hard core space fanatics together from here. :)

Man the modeling on the ships is soo freaking amazing.. ugh.. /drool..
Honestly the modeling on everything is amazing..

Now this looks fantastic never played allot of space sims, but this looks brilliant, especially the scale when walking around. I don't understand what's the deal with the starter kit? Is it a sort of kick start situation where you pledge an amount etc?

Oh wow the pack ends tonight? So after tonight there will be no more lifetime insurance.
I'm sure it won't be a huge deal, when the game comes out anyway..

I think I heard the Electro switch thing, that changes your color easily, will also be unavailable after tonight.
Or am I wrong in that?

I'm in for the Advanced Starter package as well for now. I'm sure I'll be making some upgrades before the game is released!

Loved Wing Commander, Privateer and The X-saga, so I'm really looking forward to this game!

I changed my mind this annoys me, been looking through the website an it could be because i haven't slept last night thanks to uni work and im missing the point but seems like spend x amount and get a ship then repeat for every ship and or content you want. I just want to pay a single fee and get the game its not a mobile game where if you want a new gun you pay just for that

Is the SP gameplay like Wing Commander?


I think I may have found my own answer...
Is Star Citizen an MMO?

No! Star Citizen will take the best of all possible worlds, ranging from a permanent, persistent world similar to those found in MMOs to an offline, single player campaign like those found in the Wing Commander series. The game will include the option for private servers, like Freelancer, and will offer plenty of opportunities for players who are interested in modding the content. Unlike many games, none of these aspects is an afterthought: they all combine to form the core of the Star Citizen experience.

When I say open world, in the context of a space-MMO, I mean free roam in space. Nothing to do with actual worlds. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Did you watch the video?
Every so far.

CO-op PvE? The game is almost Alpha..

Good. I hope it is balanced, challenging and fulfilling.

How to stop eve like battles?
They are making the game.. They can do whatever they want in the programming to make it so..
It's that simple..
My worry is that the measures they take to prevent this will severely dampen the epicness of the game in general.

The assumptions I am reading so far that they won't implement things, that are just common sense, are kind of confusing me..
It's like being concerned that when you walk outside today, there won't be any air..
There is just nothing to support or validate those concerns..lol..
I've watched the videos for and then played too many hyped games to be this naive. If preventing space-battles is so common sense, why don't they do it in Eve? Well, at least in part, because it's part of the game that people love. So it isn't a no brainer either way, imo. Eve doesn't have decent co-op PvE, either, for example.

Watch the video on the sites main page. There will be tons of open world and constant updates.
I quote: "Serious updates bi-weekly, not monthly or yearly.."
Pretty much verbatim.
I've been subbed to the youtube channel since it was first created. There's nothing new on the main page I haven't seen before.

This guy is supposed to be some kind of prodigy in terms of game making and the team he is using, is so high caliber it's insane..
We're talking modelers from things like Star wars, Avatar and seriously high end people here.
Again, if I had a pound for every hyped game that was terrible...

Eve has fallen short imo for way to long. Pretty much like every Russian MMO, they concentrate on numbers and calculations, with minimal actual fun..

I think Eve's a great game. It's aiming for something different, which is fine. If I'd jumped on the Eve bandwagon when it first appeared, I think it could have been a good game for me.

All ur unsubstantiated eve hate is making this thread hard to read. I play and enjoy eve, and also think I'll enjoy this game. So try to leave your biased opinions about a proven mmo out of ur posts and this thread will be better off because of it.

Also ste, you can buy ships ingame using ingame currency. The pledges just get u that ship with lifetime insurance. Meaning if it explodes you get a new one free of charge.

luckly EVE isnt a russian mmo ... ccp isnt cccp :wtf:

also EVE has more to offer than SCi even if SCi seems to be a good one.

Aka: numbers can be fun too.

this looks like it could be promising. Id guess a single player campaign, as he said, that's just the universe on your computer; similar to the X-series. But then i'd guess that theres a multiplayer thats an mmo, which would be more immersive than EVE with the scaling of running around and whatnot. Though how skills and things are leveled will be another.

One thing you don't see very often is leveling by use of skill. IE: if i use lasers on my ship, my skill with them will increase, if i fly smaller fighter class vessels for months:my accuracy, steering agility, and target locking should improve. Something along those lines.

I'd love to see it in a big RPG, sadly Runescape seems to be the only one to do such a thing, which i can only ever stand to play a month XD

Sometimes hype is good ya know..
Not all of us are predisposed to saying "everything is going to suck"..
Some of us are actually optimistic..

Getting into the Eve comparison was a bad idea..
Unsubstantiated though? Lol.. years I played eve..
Hardly unsubstantiated.

Enough of that though.. On topic..

Just because I don't hop on the "bash every game coming out" band wagon doesn't mean I haven't looked into this game.
Where tons of other "hyped" games can be looked into and you can find out things like..
"That company was bought out by some crappy company, who is now making the game"
Usually meaning the game will fall short. Or other info regarding the dev team.
I don't see that here so far..
The Dev team seems very competent and have proven themselves in the past to be so.

Anyway, I'm going to stay positive about this game..
I think it's going to be the winner.

Well, as someone who's pledged to receive a copy, I hope you're right!

I'm really looking forward to this. I purchased the Digital Colonel package back when I first heard of it.

* The finished game for your PC with your Anvil Aerospace Hornet ready to fly (High-end ship focused towards dogfighting/combat)
*Exclusive access to the Alpha and Beta
*5,000 credits
6 Months Ship Insurance
Colonel Package containing;
Download of game soundtrack
Downloadable Star map of the game universe
Downloadable 42-page Squadron 42 Manual

I wanted to buy the rear admiral package but just couldn't part with $275. I settled for $125 adn I'm very happy. Though I may add another ship to my package. Something that would be a good mining/transport vessel.

Count another guy in for when this game comes out. I think TPU federation taking over the stars would be bloody awesome.

You're going to be a pirate killer in that thing. That Hornet is a fighter!

I, apparently have a very nice looking ship that is the equivalent of a BMW and my other ship is similar to a compact work truck.

Once the game is out, I might have to get a Constellation class.

*I could possibly set up a TPU squad, lemme look into it.

B - Bounty Hunting
E - Exploration
F - Freelancing/Mercenary

I don't usually go in for space games, partly due to the complexity of 3D space orientation and combat with my limited peripherals (KB/M), but this one looks very interesting. The graphics and physics are amazing.

Seems a bit vague that he talks up supporting PC, while being shown using primarily a gamepad, and never once talks about how playable the game is with a standard KB/M setup.

I'm a bit skeptical about sp gameplay. He refers to being able to travel the open world universe after finishing the campaign, but doesn't really say whether anything you do in it involves any AI support. I'm assuming it doesn't.

I'd also like to know if it's a monthly subscription game or if it's being sold up front at a static price. I NEVER buy into subscription games. I agree that this has the tone of being slanted toward MMO play. Nothing else makes sense really.

Not surprising he has nearly $10,000,000 raised so far. My one slight nit pick is I didn't particularly care for the walking and running animation, especially the running, but in a space game, that's not really a big deal.
