    After listening to the lamentations of loosing your controls. While it’s annoying the easy fix that I do is export your controls, then make a copy of those XML files somewhere outside of your Star Citizen folder. Then after a patch load the game up and alt+tab out to put a copy of your already configured controller mapping xml back into the correct folder. That XML will be available for import once you open the menu for the first time after the xml files have been copied into the correct folder.

    It might be annoying, but it’s less annoying than having to rebind an entire sim setup. Just remember to keep those most up to date mapping XML files copied outside the USER folder, since it gets deleted on every update.

    Also, Gamescom made me openly weep from the sheer beauty of that AC 2.0 demo. Made for an awkward few moments in the office…

    Well at least the news about the social part of the game coming soon was unexpected. I think the Glaive sale was poorly done.

    Wonderful show everyone.

    The AC 2.0 demo was impressive, and the news about the social module dropping soon was a nice surprise.

    I was surprised and sort of saddened by the Glaive “sale”. I just don’t feel that it is in the spirit of the game; it’s basically a reward for the best E-sports twitch players in the ‘verse, the ones who can spend 8 hours a day in AC dogfighting and practicing. Those people would always exist, but the game’s advertised policy has been that there would be mitigating factors to allow those with less time to remain relevant, and there’s basically none of that here. I wouldn’t mind if the Glaives were AC only, but the PU versions I don’t think make sense.

    Finally, while the customizable ships are a nice development and a seeming return to the original intent of ships like the Connie, I wonder if they might have sabotaged their own revenue stream. This may be oversimplifying it, but if someone can turn their Retaliator into a medical ship with med bay modules, why have a “Hope” variant for the Endeavor? Or if you can install dropship modules, what’s the point of a Redeemer? I think they need to make sure to highlight (or create) the advantages of the dedicated ships over the multi-role modular ones or they’re going to end up with a galaxy full of 2 or 3 of the same ships that people just keep refitting as needed.
