Star Citizen
« on: December 20, 2015, 09:18:31 PM »
For a long time, I've wished that space-flight games would let me land and take off for myself, bypassing the ALTO system, as I call it (Automated Landing & Take-Off). From a recent Star Citizen video ("Star Citizen - 1st seamless procedural planetary landing gameplay" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5XSiww9ZO4), it looks like Chris Roberts, who brought us Freelancer and the Wing Commander series, will be granting my wish! And the graphics look amazing! I'm really looking forward to this game!

Linux. Because a world without walls or fences won't need Windows or Gates.

Sounds like it'll be pretty cool when it launches in 2037!

Won't we be driving our Flying Low-Orbital Rocket Car by then?

No no no, that's not until 2063, and we'll have to go through maybe 1 or 2 world wars, and make first contact with an alien race first.

Wait!  Isn't 1 world war enough?  We need 2?  Gah!   :-\

I'm keeping an eye on Star Citizen as well.  I was playing Chris Robert's games in the early 1990's.  He's always been a hero of mine  ;D

Only one war would be, illogical.

(Honestly though, my Star Trek history is a little fuzzy, so I'm not sure how many wars took place leading up to first contact with the Vulcans...)

The Eugenics Wars and World War 3 are generally regarded as separate but related events. Historical records do get fuzzy though.
I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.

I'm working on sorting the Lore AMAs so that questions are easily found and linked: http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Lore_AMA/Sorted Tell me what you think!

That's because they keep jumping around and mucking up the timestream.

Don't forget the Marine Wars which started when the US blamed China for the unexplainable disappearance of two of the last few remaining Humpback Whales...

I hope to be there when the SC PU launches.  Look for me as VP of the Citizens' Aid Society (a UEE version of a combination AAA Motor Club and Angie's List) and as the manager for the Earth office of Viking Ship Rentals.

ODonovan on the SC forums.  odonovan_starcitizen on Yahoo! Messenger chat.  Will be Edward O'Donovan ingame.
