no, usually its much worse. atleast this is very simple shitposting that you can easily recognize.

the real /scg/ is more nuanced, but after being there awhile you realize that theres no such thing as a unique post, theyre all very subtly changed iterations of the same shitposts.

however, the built up blueballsed hype of star citizen and the pending release of the DFM in 2 weeks has prompted everyone to go stir crazy. By everyone I mean vederation.

Less buggy, because its not an alpha.
No really, do you know what alpha means, nigger?
If they call something an alpha its not a finished product. If they call it an alpha its specifically because its in a bug ridden incomplete stage before theyve got it fully made and polished.

But I already said anon. Thats wrong. Buying ships is not pay to win, because ships are tiered, no ship is better than any other ship, thats not how shits balanced.
>You can buy equipment
You can buy credits on a monthly cap which can buy equipment.
But the shittiest low tier equipment costs ten bucks to buy, though.
There will thusly be very little pay to win in the game because its so goddamn expensive to actually do so. And would also require saving up multiple months of purchased credits.

I voted for 4 Horsemen in the save round. I think their ship has the best production values and overall it looks the most finished-- it also looks like it'd be a helluva ship to use in the game.

Shimpan's ship is impressive too, although I liked 4 Horsemen's better. I was not very impressed with Tallon, and it looked like he was very far away from actually getting his ship finished. It has a cool silhouette, but I don't think he ever stood much of a chance working by himself.

I HAVE A HUGE PET PEEVE WITH THIS GAME

The cockpits provide no rear view visibility. With cargo type aircraft not really made for fighting is fine but the scythe, hornet and the avenger are terrible when it comes to looking around behind.

There is reason why bubble canopies became the norm today, because being able to track your opponent is everything. Chris roberts says he is passionate about aviation and flight sims but he doesn't give these fighter spacecraft the visibility they need? Fuck man. I mean, I wouldn't mind if it wasn't a bubble canopy but you need to be able to see behind you.

It's just another space sim. Ignore people who talk about ED in Star Citizen threads. ED has its own general, and fans are more than capable of making their own threads.

Because they can't afford the $100 that it costs to buy their way into the E:D alpha, but they still feel the need to defend and justify pre-purchasing the finished game that won't be out for a long ass time.

I paid $60 for my Star Citizen pledge and I will get to play the AC alpha this month. The only way you will be playing Elite Dangerous right now is if you emptied your pockets big time. How does it feel knowing that E:D needed your money a lot more badly than Star Citizen, and yet they put a giant paywall between you and the alpha?

bigger world=/=bigger game if thats what you're saying. By bigger he didnt mean physically.
Its a fact that its going to have more simple mechanics, less content, and its already confirmed for less grafics.
They plan some (priced) expansions to expand its scope.
Its not a bad thing, anon. The game has potential to be good being more focused and more built around its own unique systems such as the full 1:1 milky way and such.
Its going to be shit if it tries to be the same exact kind of space sim as star citizen but with less mechanics and content+an Elite skin, so it shouldnt be.

The Redeemer has so much utility it's almost nuts. There are so many different roles it could potentially fill if you are playing with friends, my mind goes wild.

Ideally we'll see Shard and IXM and 4horsemen as the top 3. They'll probably all be in the game at some point.

RIP in peace Skyguard and Tri-Tri. Tallon has such a neat concept but lost my respect after that horrible fucking presentation on top of no progress.
>>
I honestly feel bad for anyone who donated over 30 bucks. I donated that, and even I'm apprehensive about how the game is going to turn out. I can't imagine the amount of damage control people who spent a grand on a fucking ship are running.

Selling better ships to the highest bidder is disgusting, I honestly would have preferred Roberts bringing in a publisher who would at least set him some fucking deadlines. I expect I'll play the dogfight alpha for all of about 5 minutes, until everyone realises the game has no real combat depth.
>>
>>245254929
>Ideally we'll see Shard and IXM and 4horsemen as the top 3

Mine would be:

1st - Shard
2nd - 4HOERS
3rd - Shimapan

I'm just not fond of IXM's ship; nothing in it looks interesting or stands out but I admit they have put a fair amount of effort into it.

How many people are actually spending that much though? It's not like the average user is going out and buying an Idris. I've spent $80 on this game and I don't think that's a whole lot (I bought Dark Souls 2 CE for $110), although I know there are some people out there who own actual chunks of old fighter jets that they are wiring up to play the game in. Those are the people who are spending thousands of dollars on this game, not people like me whose computers cost less than $2000 and own shitty joysticks.

I felt bad for Tallon just because I've had those weeks where I've had to turn in an art project for a class, and I hadn't done jack shit on it during the week for whatever reason, so I have to throw something together last minute to look like I actually worked on something. However, this was like showing up to a final exam without having studied, because there was no save pool this time.

I am pretty sure I will end up getting really into the PU, however I find it wacky just how much some people are putting into this game. Not that I'm complaining, since a bigger budget means a lower chance of the game sucking, but I don't know what goes through someone's head when they decide to spend thousands of dollars on a game that's not even out yet.

It get's better, though-- I recently saw a thread in the RSI hardware forum that got someone banned, because they were showing off the office that they had built for gold farming in SC and were trying to recruit forum members into some kind of pyramid scam. I shit you not, there are people already setting up businesses to farm gold in a game *that is not even out.* There are so many things stupid about that, but apparently even the scammers are idort whales.

But thats, again, wrong. It wont be nearly as large as 1:1, but it intends to be pretty fucking large.

But it doesn't. It has been said multiple times that it isn't trying to be large. It will just be a bunch of tiny ass sectors you can warp between, and those sectors aren't going to be very large. Elite's universe will be at least twice the size of SC's.

One key difference is that SC's universe is being crafted by hand, while ED's is procedurally generated. The different planets in ED are basically the space sim equivalent to the faces in Oblivion.

The choice is between thousands of planets that eventually start to feel samey because they were all created from the same algorithm, or a game that has a much smaller number of planets (that will grow over time), but they are all designed by developers. And that is not even taking into consideration the planets that you will actually be able to land on-- that is something that is an afterthought for E:D, whereas with SC they already have an entire FPS studio working on the planetside mode.
>>
>>245257019
>btw, did the bullshit of instanced combat get changed?
It never meant what you thought it meant you stupid fucker.
in fact, let me explain this shit.
>>245257043
>>245257019
>>245257175
Instancing does not mean what you think it means here.
The way its going to work is as so:
A system has a definitive layout. An "instance" is just a cell thats created and deleted on the fly. Actions and alterations are still preserved. A system is a fully laid out seamless thing. Theyve stated explicitly multiple times that if you want, you can seamlessly travel through the entire system. It will stream in instances seamlessly. This has, again, been stated fucking explicitly.
When you drop out of cruise into an instance, that means an instance is generated wherever the fuck you happen to be, which is not limited to a few preset destinations, again, confirmed. Its anyplace in the full size of the system, but instead of storing a fuck ton of level cells, they just make one where they need it based on the stored data about it, since thats all they need given that most of it is empty blackness because space.

Windows on a fucking spaceship make no sense. Instead, small cameras positioned around the outside of the hull should create a visual projection of a 3D, 360 degree screen.

The only reason to have windows at all would be if your shield technology is amazing, which means that the hull would be like paper to any enemy fire anyway.
>>
>>245257768
That's the big thing-- the polymer on those windshields is probably like 3 inches thick, and as such it would be a pain in the ass to mould into rounded shapes-- not to mention that if a pane of material shatters, you can replace it with a sheet of metal. If that rounded bubble on your fighter breaks, what is going to replace it to keep you from getting sucked into a vacuum out of a tiny hole?

So I am looking to get into Star Citizen, I have $250-$300 that I can spend on the game, (obviously the less I have to spend the better for me to be buying other things). I am looking at the ships and I don't know which one to get. I am thinking of getting either one of or both the freelancer and the 315p but all in all I think I feel like I should ask the opinion of you people who know more about the game than me. Any help is kind.

My main goal when the game is released is exploration, probably solo unless I pay for my friends (which is a possibility for a holiday gift) but I do like ships that actually look nice and have walking room on the inside.

Constellation is an all round ship you could fit for exploration.
315p is a supposed exploration varient of the 300 series.
Aurora is the cheapest and you can get everything in game.
the freelancer has an actual exploration dedicated variant coming so you would probably do best to get that and upgrade to the variant when it comes around, if you dont want to just get an aurora and get it in game.
