Unfortunately Kinshadow was left in an awed stupor by the Star Citizen livestream, so we had to pull Henry out of the audio booth, joining Geoff and Ostron in bringing you another episode of the Best Dam Space Sim Podcast Ever!

This week we’re skipping the Squawk Box segment to dive straight into the news as we check out what’s landed on the Flight Deck as we bring you:

After that we’re debating whether things that are internal should ever be external, before finally tuning into the Feedback Loop and letting you join in on the conversation.

This Week’s Community Question

  • CIG is publishing their internal development schedule for all backers on their web site. Straight up, is this a good move or not?

    it’s a good thing. More, genuine transparency is absolutely welcome. I’m enjoying the peek behind the curtain that Star Citizen has been, and this just lets me see more.

    As to cash discounts… I think it’s often lost or forgotten that the ability to ‘melt’ our ships for store credit isn’t something that CIG had to grant us. I think that allowing us to do this at all is extremely generous and I have no problem with them incentivizing the use of cash with a discount.

    it’s not that a person’s $100 is now worth $90. It’s that the $100 is not yours at all anymore. It’s already been spent. That we can trade in old ships for new ones is a courtesy that I’m thankful for.

    Cheers,

    Amon

    A little something about combat logging. So there was a 10ftc a while back where they talk about the idea that if you don’t go to sleep in a bed. That you characters will take over and find a friendly LZ and park. I wonder if they could possible just have an AI takeover for you when someone combat logs or disconnects. If it’s a real discoed player, the player will have a fighting chance when they’re reconnected. For the combat logger, they will have to suck it!!

    Hi again guys,
    Great show again. Just a point of order in regards to the ship melting and prices. You will always get back what you pledged for a ship at the time you pledged. No more, no less. The difference with the cheaper “warbond” version is that they give you a slight discount if you pay with cash rather than melting. It is designed to bring in new money rather than just shuffle around ship pledges.
    I don’t have a major issue with it in general.
    The reasoning behind the new variants of the Sabre, Gladius, Avenger and Hornet however, I feel are a bit weak. Same ships with a paint job and a crappier loadout seems like a pretty lame excuse for the extra cost…..

    I think revealing the schedule was a great move! Inevitably there will be whining, but cig is getting good at ignoring the drama. Let’s just hope enough of the community is prepared to handle adjustments and shows some appreciation.
