alright:
  • we broke 2.5 million last night at 8pm et, so the game will launch with an additional ship: the anvil aerospace gladiator (it's a bomber). ten lucky backers will get one for free.
  • we've broken the 750,000 stretch goal on kickstarter long ago, so now everyone who has backed gets a free repair bot.
  • there is a live chat feature that was added to the rsi website if you want to chat amongst your "star citizens".
  • finally, chris roberts will be answering questions again on reddit in 20 minutes from now (1pm et). i'll update with a link when it goes live (presumably he'll be there all day). get those questions ready!

the reddit ama is now over, but there are plenty of answers to go through!

I would love to get into this game, but if I do, I will never get out. Too many other interesting things in my life right now to split time with, least of which is Cub Scout leadership. Nobody, nobody told me how much work and fun it is.

You are mistaken. That was the other love interest, the pilot. She died in the beginning of the sequel. Allen's character quietly faded into obscurity.

I pitched in my 35.

I hate investing in things that haven't been made yet because I have no guarantee of a quality release.

But the last space sim I loved was Freelancer, and I miss them. :cry:

Hope Andrew Sega gets some music in there somewhere, even if I doubt it.

Alright, we're coming down to the final few days! Here's a goofy video from Chris Roberts to get you amped up (rofl).

Here's the latest rundown:

Alright people, we are at the final 24 hours of this campaign! We currently stand at 4.75 MILLION dollars pledged, with 5+ million in our sights. If anyone wants to pledge, but hasn't done so yet, you can use a friend's referral link (here's mine) to get an extra 250 credits and a chance to win some swag. If you pledged on the kickstarter page, you can still enter to win. you'll be sent a survey at the end of the funding period asking if anyone recruited you (my rsi name is the same.. Cyco-Dude ). If you've already pledged on the rsi website and you want 250 more credits and a change to win some swag, click on the "your account" link at the top and enter my (or a friends, whatever) e-mail or user name into the referrer box. It's the last day to win some cool stuff; get it while you can.

Additionally, there are a number of limited-time add-ons as well as some other goodies, so check them out! I'm linking to the kickstarter post to take some load off of the RSI website. It's getting hammered right now, so please be patient!

You'll still be able to pledge after this initial crowd-funding is over. If you pledge now though, you'll be able to upgrade your pledge at a later date in case you really want something but don't have all the cash now. There will be a live-stream marathon going until the campaign is over; I'll update with the relevant links when everything goes live!

ok, they're getting the streams set up now on ustream.
chris' stream
ben's stream
office stream
site that has all streams in one window
twitch tv re-stream with multiple stream and chat windows!

*UPDATE*
we've broken the 5 Million dollar milestone. we've broken the 5.5 million dollar milestone (playable carriers, whoa!)! unreal! broke 6 million with 90 minutes left...it just doesn't stop!

*UPDATE 2*
pledge total of $6,225,582 as of 2:00pm et november 19th, with $2,134,374 coming from their kickstarter. they are having a grace period if you haven't pledged yet, or couldn't pledge during the last 48 hours of the fund raising period. you will be able to pledge (or purchase add-ons, or upgrade your current pledge) at the original tiers and prices until monday the 26th.

Actually just found Tech Report Cyco.

Seen a few interesting sub forums on here I am going to check out too.

But like Cyco said. The grace period is on and its come to close this Monday so time is running out to get into the alpha and beta tests and to pickup some of the new limited ships.

Head over to Star Citizen and pledge today as citizenship is earned not given.

Now to go look for some Sim City stuff on here.
