It's really something to see a company that holds an annual convention for their still-not-released game congratulate themselves for their small PR efforts.

sigh.

I just fired up the game for my bi-monthly check in, and WOW is the framerate waaaaaay better now.

Long ago in a moment of drunken weakness I picked up the Constellation Phoenix (with lifetime insurance), and daaaayum is it looking sweet now! Definitely got that Lando...cruisin around the universe vibe going on.

I'm glad to see you had a positive experience.
Congratulations on your entaggening.
The last patch, 3.2 was a boon for the game. Framerates were greatly improved.

I'm with you on this one.

OK, Even I found this one funny

That is a good one

That's awesome to watch. I like the concept, Grounded ships. Have troops defending it and troops attacking with the end game to self destruct or successfully defend. What a blast, literally. Those explosions are so well done.

I just needed to post this here. Wow, that's some impressive editing.

Nice!

Lookit guys. You can get a 3D printed model from the game! Of a buggy (not a ship)! For 50 pounds or 65 dollars before shipping!

Even Reddit loves it!

What a bargain! I'll buy three!

Wow...I honestly wasn't aware that they had models of golf carts.

By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.

It's called the Greycat. It is a golf cart, basically. It was designed as a hangar buggy to get around inside your hangar. It was given to most backers as part of an initial ship purchase back in the early days.

Besides, that file is probably already on Thingiverse for you, or me, to print for yourself, for free!

I hope that guy gets shut down. It's not his property to sell. Bedsides, like anyone posting on that post on reddit, nobody will buy it.

Inside "your" hangar, the ui/waiting area unconnected to the actual game where you can look at your stuff (which was something that existed years ago when I poked my head in, not sure if it still does), inside a hangar in a station, or inside your hangar, if you have a ship huge enough to need a vehicle to travel around inside of it?

This is not my image dump, but 3.5 just launched and with it comes a new planet and moons the planet is ArcCorp. A fully industrialized planet covered with buildings. It looks amazing.

Also female characters and a fully custom character creation system.

New missions and flight system.

That was the idea. There still is a hangar system where you can spawn a ship to check it out. It is still disconnected.

This game already has more than 100 ship models available but is just now adding female character models? That's messed up.

Built a new pc, that should actually be able to hand the game. Is it still alpha/beta? I was able to access it before but just had such horrible frame rate on my old computer. Should I try loading it up again?

I think they knew what would make them money and it wasn't a female character model.

I'm not saying that disparagingly, even though I find it kind of hilarious, in a bad way.

Still alpha. I loaded it up on my new rig and it ran pretty well. Just wasn't much to do, but it was pretty

I gave up logging in after they failed to keep their promises for 3.0

This though does look promising and have to keep in mind he has an INSANELY powerful rig and you can still see performance stutterings. Still like he mentions in the video it does show off the potential.

I get why they are trying to do this but its just too much.. too ambitious and honestly its not even needed. That is my frustration.. we will never get anything close to "fun" because they are just trying to do way to much in any single game.

I would have settled for a really well done modern update to Privateer.

Wondering what his rig is. I'm going to download this and try it. Can't remember the last time I installed this. 2-3 years ago. Just upgraded my rig to i7 9700k, 2080ti. We shall see how laggy it is.

It was a bit laggy on my Ryzen 2700x 2080ti setup about six months ago.

Same pref, but at some point how does a single game release [across a sensible development timeframe] meet the expectations of $200+ million(?) in crowd funding. Seems like a perpetual Dwarf Fortress like project, colliding with a money waterfall in this case.

From another recent video of his:

ORIGIN PC NEURON (Black Case)
Custom UV HD PRINTED PANEL
RGB LED Strip
1000W EVGA SuperNOVA G3 PSU
Corsair RGB Premium Fans
EVGA X299 Micro 2 ATX
ORIGIN PC 240 Liquid Cooling Soft Tubing- w/ Green Liquid
Intel Core i9-9980XE
Single 24GB NVIDIA RTX TITAN
32GB DDR4 RGB 2933MHz RAM
2TB Samsung 970 EVO NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD

I saw that video and thought, this is a great video to show a bit of the latest patch. The planet is jaw-dropping. That scene of him coming in at night! I've been to it and it really is amazing.

I can tell you now that on my Ryzen 7 2700 and 2080 that the frame rates are fantastic now. 60+, I also have 32GB ram.

An SSD is needed as there is a lot of disk IO.

I keep meaning to load it up on my son's machine using his 1070, and old i7 4770k. Also 32GB ram.

Sure is pretty. Shame there's not much to the city but how it looks, but it looks great and runs decently even if his rig is a beast.
