Should I just upgrade the stock weapons on the Avenger, upgrade the ship, or just
I've done two matchmaking battles, and haven't gotten any kills yet. I suck really, really bad compared to the other players.
Upgrade the stock weapons absolutely, the suckerpunches are straight shit ass awful
keep the nosegun, replace sucker punches with tarantulas or longswords if they are a size 1 mount i dont remember
I've been told the suckerpunches aren't really meant for trying to shoot people down, but capturing them, like they disable the ship or something. Should I replace them w/ something else?
Try fixed tarantulas or gimbaled longswords on the wings. Also, tempest IIs for missiles... Though all missiles kind of blow now.
Will there be strippers in the bars later on? hologram strippers?
I want my seedy dark questionable pirate bars.
There's just something about the ship that makes you want to like it no matter how terrible it is. The cutlass is a retarded puppy.
It would run like ass on NASA super computers
Maybe we'll hear some news about a new patch tomorrow.
Can't you boost through the turns to compensate for drift like in the earlier versions or has that changed?
>the computer's borked
Sure it is, Chris...sure it is.
Posting best ship. Fucking love the Orion. Based George Hull needs to work on the more RSI stuff.
Hey /scg/, did i ever tell you of the time your father screamed "AAUAAHH I HATE YOU" after nearly chocking your pregnant mother to death and murdering a classroom full of school children?
He was a good friend.
An actual rsi made fighter would be interesting.
>samefagging your own shitty video this hard
>alright guys, it was Ben's brilliant idea for me to play some 2.0...
HE HATES HIM SO MUCH
he knew this shit was gonna happen, he didn't wanna do it
literally everything in that picture exists and is common on the commercial market today.
what a time to be alive.
also there are bar strippers in several pieces of concept art, I'd say it's a likelihood. just look at the 'fuck you!" emotes we got in the very first batch; Ben pays lip service to the tolerance crowd, but the devs (and the CEO) are all good old boys of the industry.
The real story is that they had to fill up the livestream with more content. Fat Fuck figured that people would like to see Chris play. He was too stupid to realise that setting up a new workstation right then just for Chris to play was going to be a clusterfuck.
> Ben pays lip service to the tolerance crowd, but the devs (and the CEO) are all good old boys of the industry.
That seems like it could be problematic. Does RSI even have any women high up in management/development chain? Because it seems like they really need it.
>Wah people are posting in my dead thread
>why cant they t...talk about freelancers and firefly
As it's been said, many spacecraft in SCG take design cues from real life planes, if you don't want to talk about that perhaps you should move to EDG
You autistic cunts just take it way too far, wanking over pictures of aeroplanes and not even vaguely mentioning SC, judging all ships by how closely they resemble RL 20th/21st century fighters. It's just so fucking tedious.
You cunts must have a general on some other board you can do this on, surely?
you afraid of a woman's body shitlord? it's 2946, get with the times pastor. she's still not asking for it and I better not catch you staring.
pic related is the only funny thing RSI ever did. imagine what that place could have been if it hadn't become a warzone for different sjw factions
this is not a genre it's a first person universe. there is room for a little of everything here, including corridor shooting, flashlight exploration horror, and lurid sexuality in small doses.
that post was perfectly legible. perhaps you're simply not familiar with 4chan parlance?
Mouse meta is S2 tarantulas in every slot.
Fixed meta is S3 tarantulas on wings and nose, combine balistic cannon on flashfire mount instead of turret.
You have to have a reason to fly in space other wise it would just be arena commander all day 'er day. If you want Wiafus just go to your containment thread /teg/ and /meg/. Stop shitting up our space ship simulator.
>/scg/ is nothing but
Apparently yes. I thought they were intakes at first but it said somewhere that they're supposed to be thrusters. Which kinda makes sense but I don't get the small metal beams infront of them.
>Does RSI even have any women high up in management/development chain? Because it seems like they really need it.
Why don't you go play Bioware games like a good little goy and shut your fucking face?
yes, is very fast hit and run ship, needs good brakes so it can stop quick and go stealth
thats not actually a sabre senpai, just one of its inspirations, also they are its
I really have to wonder what possesses these fucking faggots to write up massive posts about their own vague opinions. There is absolutely nothing of value in this post for the development team. There is no topic or game mechanic that this post contributes to the discussion of. It's just some faggot writing a wall of text about his feelings, and this is less than half of it.
What the fuck is wrong with these people?
Greetings unknown political dissenter. This is the UEE Advocacy speaking. Your assets are being seized in compliance with the Pitchfork statute. Rest assured that you will be compensated the full market value of all of your seized equipment so long as no incriminating evidence is found thereon.

You'll be in good company.
I really don't think this game will ever come out. They have tons of art assets, but everything gameplay-related glitches, then gets patched, then gets broken again after something else is added.
This is the most incompetent group I've ever witnessed.
Let me guess, you've never actually playtested anything other than open betas (aka the game has already gone gold and they're stress testing)? Alphas are broken, alphas are glitchy, alphas don't work half the time. Welcome to the process of developing videogames, now fuck off.
Why does he look so surprised? is he not aware that his current build is broken as shit?
I mean it's not an issue to me since I know it's an alpha, but the game creator should be at least aware of what he's opening to the public
Because playing your own game on a livestream only for it to freeze up and crash is embarrassing.
No, it's a work-in-progress model from a leaked build of the game that was never meant to be seen by anyone outside of CIG.
You can dig up a lot of it by just googling Star Citizen Leak as an image search. There's a WIP F8 Lightning model that I'll post after this.
>I wonder if he tried all possible control options before reinstalling and fixing it
>Nah he just needed to get gud
Well. It is..similar? With way less details and more boring surfaces? And with less
but biggerguns? The F8 looks nice, too, tho.
I know Chris' roles is to be hyper autistic about shit like design, graphics, story, people, etc, but who'said responsible for being autistic about the game experience? It's pretty clear that Chris doesn't play the game and that he isn't a "gamer," as much as I hate that term
So wait, if Ben was the one that suggested that Chris play the game on the livestream, doesn't that mean he's the hero we need but we don't deserve?
I mean now Chris realizes his game is pretty shitty. This can only be a good thing for everyone.
Because that plays right into their hands, anon
>He was faking it, where are all the other players! clearly multiplayer is impossible!

I cannot fucking wait to get in firefights around the interior of that fat slut. I look forward to haunting big ships like that and making stowaway cat and mouse an integral part of large ship management in 2.x
Freelancers fucked anally yet again
Looks like it has slightly less empty grey dashboard than the lancer
Not that it really matters. It's a giant fuel tanker. You need exactly enough situational awareness not to crash into stations or asteroids while your turrets do all the heavy lifting.
Meanwhile, on a real oil tanker...
So with FPS and Spess becoming one and the Same with each passing week, how long until we see some man portable weapons that that can harm a spacecraft in a meaningful way?
My first thought would be shoulder fired S1 missiles.
I'd imagine they'd be excusive to the powered armor suits.
>difficult to mod
go back to /v/ where you can be among fellow retards.
Heavy armor is supposed to have 3 weapon slots, small/medium/large.
A single shot S1 missle launcher isn't asking for too much.
It'd also make for some cool ambush scenarios
how's that diet going ben?
>you will have to pay me to work on my ship threads

>there's going to be more cap ship solo runners than even the thirstiest /scg/ pirate imagined.
Never doubted it.
The dads will fly out in their Idrises, some enterprising pirates will steal it. Dad doesn't play often anyway so is happy to wait a week to get the Idris back. Everyone wins.
I wouldn't mind putting money in a capital ship to keep it running if it was one of those you can't insure/land somewhere safe.
No one owns the ship but everyone does. The idea of pitching money for something like a Corvette is the most retarded one I have ever read, you are the one hiring people, your crew members aren't shareholders but employees.
yeah there's a key difference between being cohabitants of the Bebop, peers breaking bread and chasing bounties together to get by, and being a hired mook expected to buy into the fucking union on the SS Dipshit that these guys aren't cluing into.

Forumdads are going places.
That's why I want to know if anyone is still playing it
of course if I had to ask the answer is no ;_;
That said something like it would be great inspiration for crewing instead of something like sitting around distributing shields all day
As long as there are enough countermeasures to prevent it (i.e. ID cards, alarm system, disabled QD/JD) then I'm completely fine with it. If you're a drooling retard whale that keeps his 890 Jump unlocked or only use shitty security systems, then you deserve to lose your ship.

this is no distant post-release 'maybe'; CR was talking about how they'll be using it to allow for manual planetside landings and freeroam exploration of uninhabited worlds just today.
How's that potato going for you, anon?
>getting butthurt for getting called out on liking autistic shit
you anime shitposters are all the same
you probably are just one person though which would be even more sad tbqh.
What are you insinuating here?
Show me on this doll where the Anime hurt you, anon.
Well you must be lobotomized then if you can't handle shitposting and throw a hissyfit as soon as you see little cartoon girls making smug faces. Otherwise, I would suggest you leave for other safe spaces such as reddit.
People post with anime images every so often in every 4chan thread. It's just how 4chan is and how it began. If you can't handle it, then yeah, follow this anons advice >>127549729
you would know all about reddit wouldn't you
im well aware but specifically on this general there is always a few shitposters with anime pics.
You might as well try to convince me furries aren't fucking cancer either.
Know thy enemy, anon. Besides, why can't you sit back and enjoy the shitflinging when idiots of the /v/ederation, KWA, Goons and Kong duke it out yet again. It's not like there's a whole lot going on now anyway. With 2.0 out of the way, we can just wait for most of our jaypeg ships to arrive so we can bitch and moan some more.
They probably post anime reaction pics.
Hot diggity dog I must be some kind of detective I reckon.
I realize this is an offshoot of /v/ which is literally reddit but gee whiz.
im aware of the bantz m80.
but you shitpost enough and it becomes the ganges river.
>They probably post anime reaction pics.
>Hot diggity dog I must be some kind of detective I reckon.
>I realize this is an offshoot of /v/ which is literally reddit but gee whiz.
But who is they? Who do you speak of, anon?
I guess you got a point. But still, the /v/ederation furry janny has been watching /scg/ 24/7 and deleted any and all animeposting. Kind of lame, since it doesn't spark any flamewars and shitposting that would be fun to watch.
Some people just want to watch it all burn, anon.
when: just now recently! you missed it!
how: i can only assume ban evading since their shit gets deleted daily
why: only god knows, friend.
Contingency plan: If I die you can have my cutlass black, you deserve it.
>spending anything more than starter package
Roughly $200, but the money spent was actually way less than that because the dollar was so low when I pledged.
I must say that the versions 2.0 and 2.1 made it look like they'll actually get it done instead of being eternally stuck in development with nothing but videos saying 'we're working on it' posted to their website.
I bought an aurora and then upgraded to an avenger. So I think I'm in for $80? That giant thumb with eyes named Chris Roberts better not fuck me out of my money.
>implying he hasn't already
Things they need to get done before 3.0 can happen: Actual persistent world space. Two small systems you can jump between. Working in-game stores. Working NPC's. Party and friend system. Ability to load and deliver cargo. Fine tune the new dynamic flight system. And they probably should get multi crew ships properly functioning and vaguely balanced.
>a genuine, actual, bonafide real hornet nigger complaining his ship isn't OP enough
>decide to check account for total amount
>realize i've been buying shit for this game for 3 fucking years now
>>and why aren't you allowed to have fixed turrets hornet baby?
>sir, because i'm too heavy, sir.
>>because you are a disgusting fatbody
>sir yes sir
>>and why would ask for such a thing
>sir because im underpowered sir
>>because you're underpowered...
No, i just think the carnard turret and the ball turret need their weight's switched. Because right now the carnard turret is like three times as heavy despite having smaller hard points.
They won't let you customize or obtain other ships by gameplay until the game is at least far into Beta I'm afraid.
Because this will ensure that many unpatient people will buy it for dollaritors instead of ingame cash.
Actually pleasantly surprised by the game making some kind of progress. But don't feel like drinking tiny sips of gameplay, so I guess I'm going to take another 7 month break from even thinking about SC
>Doesn't like shortened versions of names
Stang works. Mustang Delta sounds awkward to say for me, so shortening it to Stang D gives it more character in my opinion.
As for the Warlock... eh.
I have a spare starter package as well, bought it thinking it would give me a permenant npc slot. ANyone knows if it will work that way for certain?
Or Should I melt it and upgrade a ship?
>hornet, cutlass, and reliant are all pretty close to each other in size.
despite one being a "dedicated" (with 13SCU cargo room, more than any avenger while also carrying more firepower) fighter, another being a "slow multicrew" and another being a "starter"
What's going to be the point of these cruise ships? Players can't do anything on them. Walk around and press F to pay respects?
Or will you pick up NPC that generate revenue assuming pirates don't kill them?
>Things you can upgrade to from the base model
>not wanting to make space shekels
Which is furthest along, the Reclaimer, the Crucible, or the
Seems to be intended to be sort of like a mustang racer but with better shields and dakka
>Custom Weapons System
Is this implemented?
The 325a still sucks right?
GPU is the least of your worries.
Bruteforcing it with SLI'd up GPUs probably won't make the difference you think it will.
But muh Rift/Vive need at least 90fps at 2160*1200.
First time in this general.
Got a few questions.
I'm planning on building a PC soon, and I wanted to run Star Citizen comfortably.
>How intensive is this game?
>Any specific components I should get?
>What package do you recommend getting?
>Do you recommend using a joystick + throttle?
>How intensive is this game?
>Any specific components I should get?
>What package do you recommend getting?
Depends on your wallet, expected playtime, and autism scale number.
>Do you recommend using a joystick + throttle?
Don't bother building a computer for Star Citizen.
It's gonna be a few years till the game will be finished.
Get a starter package.
Don't use a HOTAS, you are just gimping yourself.
you know what would be cool, if there would be a "dark/under" world in every station/system.
with its own underground forum our bbs like shit, really to give some of that cyberpunk feel off.
Like you first need to get some dodgy reputation to be allowed on it, and ensure it won't be filled with goody two shoes.
it being filled with bounty's, people trying to sell illegal resources and our stolen equipment.
of course the moderation would be a hassle but if it is only text based and job related and maby some section about underground news info and to discuss shit like organisations/factions,
i know this would be able outside the game, but something inside the game would really be cool.
idk maby i played to many cyberpunk games lately.
>Do you recommend using a joystick + throttle?
Yes, it is infinitely more rewarding in my opinion to play this game with HOTASS. Most people seem to be more interested in going full minmax using gimballed flavor-of-the-patch guns
It's implemented, and was actually kind of neat back when missiles were strong enough to one shot drones. But now its rather pointless, especially on a ship that only holds four missiles.
Isn't the Rift going to be 600 bux or some shit?
I do own a HOTAS, in fact I regularly use my HOTAS.
A HOTAS is garbage in Star Citizen, since the game is basically a twitch shooter in space (slightly less in 2.0 but the forumbabies are crying for their instant strafe to be reinstated).
The game is aim-centric, mouses are god-tier for aiming, why would you NOT use one?
Maybe if it wasn't limited to stations and you were able to access it (if you even had access and knew where to look) from anywhere as long as you had a connection.
That way you can keep posted on jobs and the like, claiming bounties or keeping things up to date, that sort of thing.
But the stipulation would definitely have to be that it would be a hard thing to get into or even find. Unfortunately in this current day and age, everything would be documented on how to access it on a wiki thanks to Reddit and the "gotta have everything now" mentality, but it would be nice to have.
Would such a thing even really be able to kept a down low secret if it did exist though? I would want it so bad, but would those who had access be able to keep their mouths shut to normies without blowing the lid off?
Thats why its for the people with really low reputation, the truly scum of the galaxy.
i mean yeah you can get on it following this guide, but do you wanna be a automatic pirate ?, that kinda thing.
i do know they have a reputation system for missions and i think some vendors too right ?
It makes me wish someone was buddy enough with the devs to slide it in without it gaining too much attention/being discussed on the forums so it wasn't advertised as a feature and more something you could stumble upon.
Not my photo, but concierge backers were able to buy a "VIP" metal card similar to citizen cards
New interview that was just posted today with Phil Meller Lead Designer of Foundry 42.
It would need to be something totally offline from the pu so there could be someone managing access other than game devs. Say someone started a restricted access forum or something, a society of space scum, allowing entry to the community after linking your player profile with your registered account somehow, and basing access to the site (or even the level of access) on how negative your reputation is in-game. Once in that site, you could interact with other players to buy and sell stolen goods, share Intel, coordinate missions together to hijack cargo, etc.
But I think the key would be to have it separate from the game, and perhaps, in game, there could be a white-list social group dedicated to it so people could still interact. M
That could work, I suppose.
If RSI impliments anything sort of what CCP has for their accounts, API keys and all that, it would allow linking of information without handing out too much. A seperate forum would be interesting, but keeping in the spirit it would be fun to have it set up with a much more underground feel than modern day bbs bpards. Have the entire thing run in a green on black DOS format with ASCII skulls and graphics.
Maybe a hud element with popup notifications pertaining to clients, destinations, etc.
I really think this needs to happen

The AC ones are fucking paper trash right now to fulfill power fantasies, supposedly PU will be harder, pic related
The super hornet is as close as you can get to an actual military hornet. The ball turret is military spec which is why the "standard" hornet does not come with one.
You're probably thinking of the super hornet skin or something?
>The ball turret is military spec
No it isn't.
This is the Super Hornet
>if the Vanduul ships will be hunted in UEE space as enemy aircraft
The player owned Glaives are human reproductions, even if you capture one eventually in the PU I bet you'll just be able to fix it up somehow

It depends, I hear they're good for cat girls.
