The first AAA game developed with money from fans instead of a major publisher

Recommended Posts

Chris Roberts started his latest game, Star Citizen, with a Kickstarter and it just kept going, here's their funding tracker.

This space simulation/MMO looks really immersive , engineered for balance and supports its community

Speaking of community involvement, they are producing their own modders competiton, The Next Great Starship where teams from the community compete for the chance to design a new starship asset for inclusion the game. Check out previous episodes for the competition itself, the most recent is a teaser for the upcoming Alpha Release Dogfighting Module.

Believe it or not, this website is for a pre-alpha community funded effort. That in no way means the various divisions, from Santa Monica to Toronto to Manchester, aren't hard at work creating something truly amazing.

Fantasy roleplay fans may not think a space sim is for them, but I challenge you to check it out and decide for yourself, there really is something for everyone here.

Ultimately it all comes down to the simple concept of player lag. Will they have solved that which has plagued EVE since its inception? 

Can you do truly massive space battles where 

A: Is it actually battles and not 5 hours on coms trying to jump around waiting for an engagement? 

B: When an engagement actually happen, will it be something more interesting then just massive missile lag vollys that try to focus 1-2 ships down at a time?

Can you actually get to the decent trade locations without having to wait 30 mins in line to get access etc. 

 

I guess the list will continue to include many other things, but I guess those are the most vital one. I am sure others will chip in with more observations! :)

I hear your concerns, if this were the next EVE I wouldn't have any interest. If you can find the time, watch the Hornet F&C commercial (its short but sweet) for an idea of what the realtime 1st Person combat will be like (think spiritual successor to Freelancer, made by same guy but without MS calling the shots/reigning him in). Also checkout the link to something for everyone "here", it details the realtime integrated economy/mission generation, also this link has a video preview of one of the mining colonies (scroll down the monthly report to the Foundry 42 section) which is another profession that will be simulated in realtime 1st person, and btw the 6km long mining bases look amazing.

EVE is basically, a futuristic banking simulator. Good training for using Excel. The time dilation thing in EVE helps a bit, but unfortunately only for the stats of when things happened, not the gameplay.

 

Didn't Star Citizen already raise over 40 million? That is a ton of cash, but I don't see how you make a MMO with that much, they usually require over 100 million to develop. The project is just so ambitious though that you can't ignore what is going on with it. I wonder how doing a monthly subscription based MMO will work nowadays. I don't know that it can work with all the garbage free-to-play stuff out there.

All I can say is check out some of the videos I linked, especially the Hornet. Those are in-engine (Cry modified for 1stPerson space sim). Its not a monthly subscription btw, buy a ship package and you're good to go (of course many early backers have bought small fleets, but there's no need to do that).

Its definitely not EVE, if you remember Freelancer it will be more that style with CIG running the persistent universe servers. They intend to release alpha modules over the next year, the "hangar" is out now. "dogfighting" drops after PAXEast, "planetside" brings FPS combat (ground & space station) later, than "social" opening up planetary environment bars for mingling and stores for shopping, finally a beta of the persistent universe then the Squadron 42 single player campaign to be released in chapters leading up to the full/live release. Finally, CIG has committed to continued content release & persistent server support after full launch.

If you remember the multiplayer from Freelancer then you would know another reason to be skeptical! :D 

The static ships, the pointless trade system etc. The SP was good but that was about it. 

 

It is space and it is MMO hence the only direct rival is going to be EVE these days, and all comparisons are going to be made for that. 

The fact that the combat is more like freelancer, and less like EVE is in theory a good thing, but in practice I can forsee a ton of technical issues once you get over a critical threshold of players.  

 

Also since you brought it up... one thing that REALLY ruins EVE is the fact that people can multi play several ships at once.. making it impossible for anyone with less then 3 accounts to compete in any serious way... this imo is what really mess up that game. It is an interesting way to reward the hardcore players, but everyone else is just not going to have a good time, and many agree that this is in large part why EVE is so stagnant... unless you come in with a lot of friends or a lot of money initially to back up several accounts then you will get nowhere fast. 

But that said then it is an interesting project. And here is to hoping that we all get to blow stuff up in realtime while chilling on our favorite leisure planet in the pass time.

Amen to that, and don't forget the 1st person close combat!

*** scrape up 20 mins & check out this video; the first 10 are insight into the developer & tease for the dogfighting module to be released next week at PAXEast, the last 10 are featuring teams of modders & their entries in TNGS, if you remember the Bear Musician Skyrim mod watch for Team Troika (from TES to the 'verse, impressive).

In today's 10 question's for the Chairman video, Chris Roberts gives a great explanation of gameplay details and informs on the role of the Cloud Imperium Games (the maker of Star Citizen) as "dungeon master". CIG intends to continue producing free content in response to player actions as ongoing support for the persistent universe, in much the same way an AD&D DM would in a long term campaign. 

 

This was a particularly informative weekly update, take 15 minutes and satisfy your curiousity.

 

BTW, As of the time of this writing, fewer than 3,000 Alpha Slots remain so you might want to pick up a game package with  alpha/beta access while its included.

Regarding the release of the next playable pre-alpha content, the Dog Fighting Module;

 

"CIG is heading to Boston to show you what we’ve been working on! Check here for information about Thursday’s special event (including the livestream.)

 

Will the event be streamed online?

Yes! Chris Roberts’ presentation will be streamed via Twitch starting at 9 PM EST. You can access the stream at that time via the Roberts Space Industries website."

 

That's tonight btw.

Live interview with Erin Roberts of Foundry 42, Manchester at PAX East ,lots of great details on Star Citizen specifics and his views re- working for community backers vs working for puplisher. Thanks to Geekdomo for this great get.

 

Amazing how much is being incorporated into this game, can't wait to start playing. Speaking to that, backers can expect to begin playing the dogfighting alpha early next month, the first chapter (10 missions) of five (50 missions total) of the single player campaign available beginning of 2015. The full persistent universe opens after the final single player chapter is released.

      Dear mods, please don't delete this. It took me hours to compile everything!!! :)

      Hey everyone,


      First off, I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me with my game so far. It's a LOT better than it was when I first started S.T.E.P. I'm not using step religiously though. I have several other mods and I'd really appreciate it if you could help me out despite not following 100% S.T.E.P protocol.
      This is going to be a LONG, and DETAILED thread dedicated to getting my game running smoothly. If it's too much for you to handle, kindly move on. I'm giving you pretty much everything and I'd like to see where you find faults with ANY OF IT. Even one suggestion would be great. Some of the sections below may be redundant because you can view most of my ini, log, etc. files on my virtual directory (section 1). I then go on to list some specific ini files at the bottom. I've made it as comprehensive and thorough as I possibly could with the virtual directories, screenshots, HTML logs, and other specific files. So if any of you are willing to help, I'd be SO grateful because I love this game, and I want to re-play it with stability, new mods, better textures, etc. I may post this on The Nexus forums too for some of their feedback since this isn't strictly S.T.E.P.

      And perhaps this thread may help others who struggle with modding in the future!
       
      Edit: I apologize if think I'm being lazy!   I assure you, I've looked at many tutorials here on S.T.E.P, watched many videos including Gophers, GamerPoets, and Mark Hollis'. I read all the mod descriptions, check for patches, check for incompatibility. My load order is still messy. LOOT throws plugin files into random spots on my load order and while I trust it, I'm not sure if it's always right. I've also gotten help from members here like hishutup, GrantSP, IdiotDave, hypercleats, GSDfan, etc. I've never been a techy kind of person so a lot of it is still hard for me to follow. I am still making the attempt to learn but I need your help and suggestions.
       

      First of all, here is my rig:

      Acindron's Rig
       
      Intel Core i5 3570k CPU @ 3.40 GHz
      8GB (2 x 4GB)  DDR3 SDRAM
      Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (Skyrim installation, 163 GB left)
      OCZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 
      EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit (not oc'd)
      Asus VS248H-P 24.0" Monitor 
      Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

      Top Priorities:
      [*]
      [*]Get more FPS while having nice textures, ENB and other mods. Eliminate the stuttering! While it is still playable, it's not as enjoyable, especially when I dip below 30. If you think my rig isn't right for this kind of Skyrim setup, please give me some constructive criticism on GPU or any other hardware upgrades but I feel like my setup should be able to handle it. I'm not getting the FPS I want, the game stutters, especially in cities, around the Rift, anywhere there are a lot of NPCs and sometimes in random spots where you would assume smooth gameplay. As I mentioned before, it can dip below 30 with some of the S.T.E.P textures (mostly 2k, also optimized) unchecked. You can see what ones I've decided to uncheck below.  [*]Eliminate CTDs. It's a horrible feeling when you're deep into the game and your game just minimizes to the desktop. I experienced a lot before when I played 2 years ago but I'm hoping there are more solutions for it now. I just started playing the game again, I'm not far, and maybe there are scripts on my save files that couldn't be cleaned with SaveTool but I'd rather not start a new game unless I know the CTDs are coming from "orphaned scripts". I'm thinking it could be more of a VRAM problem, or a loading order problem. I do have the SKSE Memory Patch. You can look at my settings and logs in my directories or sections below. [*]Organize Mod Organizer. I still don't know how to combine patches, or merge plugins. It's all very complicated to me. This was mentioned in a previous thread, hishutup posted some videos and and I followed the video tutorials provided but I was still a bit very confused. I did end up making a TESEdit Merged.esp which I  think is good. As far as my bashed patch goes, I don't know. I'll show you what's inside my bashed patch below. I've also tried merging similar ESPs with the TESVEdit xEdit Script plugin by matortheeternal but whenever I selected a cluster of ESPs I wanted to merge, others would appear in the right column. It didn't seem like a safe idea so I didn't do it. So things in my plugin list may still look a bit messy. I want everything to be clean, and organized. I'd also like your suggestions on what mods I should probably get rid of. If they're known to cause problems, I'll consider uninstalling them.

      1.) First of all, here are directories where important files are, some of them are clickable so you can read them:
      (Obviously, not all files are included. You can't click on others. Mostly ini, txt, log files are available to view.)

      Hi,
       
      Maybe this is normal behavior, but I wanted to check with others anyway.
      I've followed the S.T.E.P. guide V0.2.0b succesfully and played some time in-game.
      Everything is working fine as expected and I started looking into ENB's (which can be awesome but are fps destroyers).
      When playing without an ENB I get around ~100 FPS in Whiterun and ~157 FPS in interiors.
      When playing with an ENB, however, I get ~40FPS in Whiterun.
       
      I installed iiENB and turned of FPSlimit and Vsync in the ENB settings to no avail.

      My specs are:
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Intel i7-4790 @ 3.60GHz 16GB RAM Game installed on HDD I know ENB is very heavy on the system, but is ~60 drop in FPS considered normal?

      This will be a fairly detailed post, so please don't feel like you must read all of it in order to help. I simply posted as much information as I could in order to better assist those who may want to provide aid.
       
      I've been doing quite a bit of testing and tweaking and I feel like I've got a handle of most of the tweaks I could possibly do to improve my system performance, but I still can't seem to figure out this issue, which is that my GPU has constantly low usage, resulting in low FPS. I've done many test runs with Skyrim Performance Monitor, and it reports about an average of 30 for interiors, 40-45 for cities, and 60-65 for exteriors, which each area increasing in framerate along with the GPU usage. CPU usage is also consistently low, but it doesn't seem to be tied to my framerate much. VRAM and RAM are both consistently high ( 3200MB interior 5500MB exterior for VRAM, RAM usually is about the same as VRAM). I initally thought that this must be related to the VRAM limit since I'm using Windows 10, but after updating to Insider Build 16232 (this build fixes the DX9 issues for those unaware still), I still have extremely low GPU usage. Stability has increased, however, and I stutter a lot less since updating. I do know that this is tied to GPU usage, seeing as whenever my GPU usage does decide to go higher, my FPS increases significantly. Does anyone know what could be causing this?
