    There's no point in even discussing it until around launch time in 2015. Optimizations are just about the last thing they do. One can always turn down the settings if need be.

    Then don't play it. It's not Eve. It's not trying to be Eve. Begrudging a future game for supporting quality improvements beyond what your older hardware can support is rather childish, but you are welcome to your opinion.

    show the source.

    maybe you should read your sources before making a copy paste from wikipedia.....
    and calling people fanboys
    :nutkick:

    I think people forget this game is crowdfunded not publisher funded.
    They reached their funding goal in November of 2012. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cig/star-citizen

    and in the kickstarter page it mentions a timeline for alpha release etc.
    So far, they are on schedule.

    They have kept the community up-to-date with their constant communication.
    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link
    the link above will take you through the development process and all other com like concept art. etc.


    I have sources for my info. :p


    lol it's not even out yet.

    this is partially correct, the game is not entirely crowd funded
    Chirs and a few other sources pitched in to get it started
    at 22 million it will be completely crowd funded
    there is no publisher though which is great

    Kong, first corps in space !

    I am comparing graphics, not gameplay. I know this game isn't trying to be EVE. I am also not begruding the game for being power hungry. I am simply stating that I won't be playing it if it truly requires more than gtx 580s in SLI like the other forum member pointed out. regardless, please don't tell me not to play a game simply because i give an opinion.

    Just to be clear this game is being made by Chris Roberts. If you don't know who that is I feel sorry for you.....almost as much as you have to use a 9mm.......but not quite.

    I sure do. I love Space Flight sims. I would love a new Tie Fighter but Wing Commander is right up there.

    hrm, well it will come down to how much time i have and what the tech specs for it are. I guess if the game isn't even on the radar until 2015 I will have more time to plan out a desktop upgrade. also by then, my kids will be a tad older so i can game in the evening.

    Sorry, ER. I wasn't attempting to tell you what to do, I was simply agreeing with you that perhaps you shouldn't play the game if it is going to push past Eve's hardware requirements. As you have already noted, however, the game isn't due out for at least another year, so there's plenty of time to save up for a hardware upgrade or two.

    If your system specs are up to date, you will have no problems playing the "alpha modules" that are coming out. I could show you some videos with the difference between low settings and very high settings. The difference is really minimal. Most folks most likely won't buy this game until it's released anyways, no biggie.

    But yeah, this game will most likely be the next "Crysis". The developer has said it himself that he likes to push the crap out of hardware... and he's done it in the past with his previous games. Also, I'm going to have plenty of ships to loan out, multi-person ships with turrets and things like that. I actually just applied for a job with the company as well. :)

    I remember some video of him somewhere talking about actually using the power of the PC to play an excellent game, instead of having to dumb it down for the consoles. And MM, is that Stryper as your Avatar?

    As an added bonus I'm pretty sure nVIDIA and ATI will both their next line of GPUs out by the time the game is released so push away CIG :rockout:.

    I just heard Chris Roberts mentioning that AMD will have new cards this fall. He also talks about pushing the limits of PC's. There's so many damn video's I can't find the exact one atm...

    Seriously, that is an option. :)

    Check out this video of the Constellation ship. The guy goes through a lot of it, some of its animations and stuff like that. Star Citizen - Chris Roberts shows off the RSI Con...

    those were the days, man. no kids, i worked part time and was finishing grad school. i could stay up late and game and not have to worry about responsibilities.

    i do look forward though to when my kids are old enough to start gaming. then we will form our own little group and start knifing everyone online! :roll:
