I think only 3 ships will be pilotable at the start of the dogfightmodule. They gave a lil update last week on the Mustang, but seems to me that it is still at least a month off, so meh :/ no plegde yet



Well I just got paid my end of year bonus so time to make a decision before Mrs Hanno sees it!
I might just get the Aurora MR+ pack at $40 as it includes the beta access.
I'm probably as more a jack of all traders as a fighter pilot and I assume you'll be able to save up to buy all the other ships
with in game currency later anyway.

You very much will be able too, its actually the big reason why i'll buy the mustang, since it should be the other starting ship, and from it i can buy other ships. Part of the experience for me. Though the Aurora is also interesting. It will have a great deal of modules which will give you that specialization edge that you like to specialize in.

They have released the dog fight module for SC, current verdicts say its pretty but controls/feel is very arcade
rather than Elite which feels more like a sim.
Got to admit this is how I felt about the original wingc commander games, it was more like you were moving
a window around space rather than actually flying a space ship like original elite felt like.
Saying that this is only early alpha so has a long way to go.

Also multiplayer is only available for a limited number of people (ie the very first backers)
so the this alpha is only a single player dog fight only.

What I've read doesn't encourage me to spend my money on SC yet. Whereas Elite was looking far more promising
and if its Beta wasn't so expensive I would of laid out for it already.

is anyone else actually interested in these games apart from Nim and me?

What does it actually need to feel like a sim? And being pretty is all fine to me, but gameplay is more important to me then that. I still enjoy the graphics from freelancer sooo xD
And yeah, i gathered something like that. That they would only provide actual player versus player for the very first people at the start.

Anyway seems like the new module is running quite stable, though they had to delay the release by a week because suddenly the chars decided to go stand up right inside the cockpits xD

The starcitizen next great starship has finished. It was a community contest with the grand prize of 30 000 dollars where a team had to design a gunship for the game which will also be in the game.
They also revealed the freelancer commercial video, a ship that is intended to serve exploration or shipping roles.

Hmm more money/time spent on making the game rather than adverts for the ships please :-)

Looks nice indeed, wouldnt mind picking it up for a low to medium price.
Btw will you be able to pilot capital ships?

Not the biggest which will be NPC. Although there will be some playable large ships with possible multiplayer coop on them on expansion.

Perhaps you would be interested in this article about the in game physics and flight model of SC.
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm ... t-Controls
Seemed many people did not understand, so they explained how simulation in space works vs atmospheric simulation. For example that you have to provide counter trust if you take a turn because else you keep turning. There is a system ingame however which does that for you, however it is not clairvoyant so if you turn to fast you will overshoot and it will need to compensate. You can also turn off that system. Anyway there is a lot more about all that in the article and it gives a good understanding of how it all works and why they made certain choices. Like why the decided to use fly by wire .

And thx on the update on the cap ships. Maybe it is something for later. I'm curious about how it will work out in SC, but it would only be real fun if you got a team to actually control it decent ;)

New ship showcased, the Xian Scout. An Alien ship design, so something exotic. It is a dual seat figther. The exotic part are the trusters, as in that it has not got a big main engine.
Expected only some concept art but they actually showed some ingame footage of it already, and they are also utilizing the holographic ship preview of the time. Looks very nice too.
Although expensive pledge, i wont be paying that...

Anyways for those interested:

Only you and me listening Nim :-)

More imaginary ships from Robert Space Enterprises (printing money the best way we know how!) Inc
Looks quite good, but I'm still betting on big delays before they get the full game released.

Elite Dangerous has a new beta release this week with 3 new solar systems and another ship you can fly NOW (if your in the premium beta that is.)
They also have the next fancy space station to land in this beta.

They are pegging for full release by the end of the year (including Thargons for those who remember)
(walking around/landing on planets will be in an expansion for next year).

No vid yet I did see a couple of static shots, but it was a hauler not a fighter.
But still its a bit more variation.
Got to admit the ships in SC look FLASHIER than the Elite ones but the elite ones look more 'real' to me.

I've not got round to the physics blurb yet, need a very bored afternoon at work to drive me to physics....
