Re: Star Citizen

OM points seem to disappear if you press the B key to jump rather than holding it down. I've logged that one with the Issue Council! ;)
New version today. Lots of 30000's in this patch...but the framerate is much better! ;)

Re: Star Citizen

One comment I forgot to say was now that most of the core tech is implemented in some form or other means that next year development should speed up, assuming they keep their feature creep under control... Looking forward to the Squadron 42 reveal they're planning for Xmas. I expect this will be the...

Re: Star Citizen

I sit on the fence about land ownership being entirely PTW. It depends on how it's eventually managed. I for one like the idea they've proposed. With the eventual 50 or so star systems with anywhere up to, say, 3 habitable planets in most systems there's a shitload of room for everyone. Also the fac...

Re: Star Citizen

Yeah framerate has been an issue with 3.0. Had a few servers now where it's held around 25 but the majority always fall into the low teens before you eventually crash out or exit. Just make sure you log it with the Issue Council....and whilst there jump into the forums and ride the wave of nerd tear...

Re: Star Citizen

Anyone who actively follows development should know by now that 3.0 has finally gone to first wave testers! Been playing for the last few hours. I can confirm yes there numerous bugs but it's also very cool at the same time! :mrgreen: Here's some glamour shots: (originally in 4k, halved then wreaked...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront II

Got stung on the first one with it's lack of server browser and complete inability to actually let me and a couple of mates join an online match. Demo was fun until I tried to play with my son and got stung by the same issues with both of us not being able to join a multiplayer game as a group. When...

Some good news my fellow Aussie Star Citizen players! :D Just had a quick dip in the 2.6.1 PTU on an Australian server! (From my experience) WOW what a difference a local server makes to gameplay!

Re: Star Citizen

Have been running around in the 2.6PTU build. They've done an awesome job on the Caterpillar. Texturing work is fantastic. ...same with the Herald. Star Marine is a lot of fun and I like the push towards more tactical gameplay. Only played one map so far...which is extremely detailed and a treat to ...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront

What's this bullshit with the Rogue One VR add-on being only for the PS4? Which crackhead made that decision? One has to really wonder how many more bad decisions they could make for Battlefront? What should have been a very successful game has just been marred by one bad decision after another... I...

Re: Star Citizen

From my understanding they have made major modifications with the engine to the extent that they can't just do a 'bulk' upgrade. Instead they integrate each new engine feature separately. Personally I'm waiting for the engine native VR enhancements to be implemented. This will be their biggest test ...

Re: Star Citizen

Ran around inside Grim Hex and found the Zero-G area where you can shoot people. Naturally I waited in hiding until I could kill someone...ran out of ammo, brought a better weapon and killed someone else...all in the name of testing! :D Awesome feeling to wake up at one station, warp to another area...

Re: Star Citizen

Got an invite for 2.5 on the PTU. GrimHex is on the opposite side of Yela, if you warp there from Olisar. It's hidden within the asteroid belt, but is easily spotable if you pay attention. Takes me about 8-10 minutes to fly there in fast cruise mode in a Super Hornet. Distance is 400kms to get there...

Re: QuakeCon 2016: Let’s take a look at Prey

Have to agree. Going by this trailer, it looks like another 'run of the mill' sci-fi shooter that is abusing the name of a popular past franchise, it has no resemblance to. (Syndicate anyone!?!?) Where's the funky gravity elements of the original games? We can only hope that this is just a trailer t...
