    I wonder of they can actually get to $6mill in the 7 hours remaining

    Apparently $6mill is what they really wanted when they started the fund raising ($2mill was the minimum they felt they needed to get the project started in a restricted form) and getting there will mean

    6.5 hours, 412K. I was reading a model last night that expected $6.1m. Looking at the numbers myself, I thought 6.2 earlier on yesterday. I think it will hit 6, just.



    It's basically them just showing off CryEngine 3.

    Whatever that disc-shaped ship is, I want it.

    by the way: those addon-ships and different titles: those are only the ones you start with? You can get those/become a mercenary ingame if you want to?

    *edit*
    Mechwarrior Online was the most succesfull crowdfunded game as it made 5mil just by their "founder packages" sales. Star Citizen just beat that. 5.6mil and counting.

    As far as I understand its like this:

    You pledge money now you get the specified ship as your starter ship with free lifetime insurance.
    You CAN get these ships in the game by gameplay ways (credits, capturing etc...) but you will have to pay ingame currency to buy said insurance (bit like EVE)

    Insurance being ship replenishment when you lose your ship

    Also, if you pledge before the crowd funding ends, you can upgrade your package at these current prices, thereby assuming that they'll change once crowd funding ends.

    5hr15mins to go, 5.66m. It's going to be close.

    Thanks for the explanation. So I think I stick with the basic one. Thats a bit of a too pricey upgrade just for a ship and the insurance.

    It's worth noting that any ship bought during the crowd funding phase will have free life insurance.

    So 5 hours to go with $5.68mil so far.

    It's going to be tight but much of the US is only just waking up now so maybe that will provide the boost necessary.

    (To put it in context - to hit 6mil they need to get more than $1000 per minute - $296,000 to go with 277 minutes left )

    Pace has picked up substantially and they now have 116K to go in 156 minutes.

    My prediction is they'll make $6 mill somewhere around 90 minutes from now (17.50 BST)

    55k to go with just over 2 hours on the clock. Unless the site crashes completely right now, it's as good as done.

    About 90 minutes to go, $6m raised. There are no more stretch goals. Everything has been achieved.

    Nice.

    It's an MMO in that there is one giant server and if you elect to be on it (can play SP offline or play on a private server with options for then modding on it) you fly with everyone else, but there are instances for busier areas and player agency is integral to the economy. You could theoretically play the game solo, online in the persistent universe, and at most talk, trade or fight with other people. You can obviously help fly someone's multi-crewed ship, fly in formation with them, explore with them etc.

    Nice! What about the actual combat,is it going to be more in a sim way,like lets say IL 2 Sturmovik oor Freelancer,which was very arcady.

    Chris Roberts was behind Freelancer, so something like that. It's worth taking into mind though that everything has real mass and application of physics to it now, so there will be a real skill requirement; engine power and amount of thrusters will be crucial to what you intend on doing, although some of these things are changeable. It certainly won't be full on sim, but I don't think it'll be as 'very arcady' as FL. It's also perhaps not a great comparison to make, considering we don't yet have futuristic space fights to base our space sims off!

    I'm hoping for a starlancer/wing commander feel with a little bit of newtonian physics (not too much, just enough to keep it interesting). Whatever it'll be it seems it's going to be great.
    Playable capital ships is a dream of mine and very few games do it. This two years are going to be loooong.

    Didn't Prophecy have that little bit of Newtonian physics (as well as wc 1 and 2?). Loved that.

    I was sick and tired of everyone talking about that lamp by the end of that countdown. I didn't find it very funny last night either.
