Crowdfunding efforts for Cloud Imperium‘s Star Citizen space sim have just crossed the $100,000,000 mark. Over a million gamers have contributed to the game, which began setting crowdfunding records way back in 2012.

The 2.0 alpha launched for all Citizens last night, along with the monthly studio report.

Marelius SoMuchMass Thornz Ding!  April 2016 : 112M$ reached.  it looks like the more people playing free fly weeks, the more are convinced Desperate Soul is a very sad man with a handfull of very sad followers…
SC speak by itself even in its alpha state.
Oh by the way Valve is kicking out LOD out of Steam (DS version: people are really too bad, they give bad review so I remove it myself :)

I’d love to see where they have this part about refunds based
on a certain date and a 12-month if-we-miss-this-date window to deliver.
 It makes absolutely no sense for them to do that, and if they did,
then color me completely surprised.”
I will go one further and show you the original document/website, read the Charges & billing – fraction :

We all support Star Citizen and tell others by word of mouth so in a way we all work for Star Citizen the biggest unstoppable game ever in history.

Wayshuba captainzor Do you have a screenshot of this TOS prior to the current “US 1.2 released February 1st 2015” version?

Everything I have seen/heard/read from the very first day of the KS campaign all of their estimates were covered under the “subject to change” caveat, as is and should be unbelievably obvious with regards to software development.

PantsOwl captainzor how do I mislead a point?  What was it again? Between you and Wayshuba it’s getting hard to keep track.  Alas, I feel the truth of your gripe comes out in your last quip: “Enjoy your time waiting”

See, it’s all about impatience.

You lose points, though, for asserting that I’m ranting/raving/emotionally attached.  It’s simply untrue.

100 Millions dollards isn’t too much for a project that shares a collective dream.

Wayshuba rioinsignia “Fact 5: They did not (that I am aware of) offer any form of written consent to those backers that it was okay with them if they take their sweet time and maybe release something by 2020. When a contract is changed, such as ToS, you HAVE to get the permission of all parties that it is agreed to. One party does not have the right, under law, to change the terms of any contract (which ToS are when raising funds), without the consent of the other party.”

They did. You had to accept new terms of service in order to continue playing the alpha earlier this year. Presumably also this would have been shown on the website as well, if you had logged in there first instead of in the launcher.

Wayshuba Thornz ” always love the defenders using the Derek wannabe’s or similar handles. Or automatically making the claims that handles are alts of previous detractors.”

If it looks like a duck, smells like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it is probably a duck.

Wayshuba MyNameIsIllegal2 Anyone who has played SC since they made those changes DID consent to the new ToS. They popped a new acceptance screen with updated ToS in the launcher quite some time ago.

Regarding this:

“Too many people seem to overlook that were many promises made by CiG – promises used to raise a substantial amount of money. Whether you support the game or not, you must understand you cannot make false promises to solicit money and then think you can just ignore them.”

This happens all the time in development. I actually can’t remember the last time a project was finished according to initial deadlines. The only difference here is that everyone is seeing the internal deadlines, because this is open development. Anyone who doesn’t take that DRASTIC change in information flow into account is, quite frankly, analysing this whole situation incorrectly.

There is a difference between “overlooking promises” and understanding that those initial dates were simply optimistic assessments that you would normally never know about in the first place under a closed development model.

Thornz Says the Sockpuppet account that works for CiG and posts a blatant promotion telling people to buy, buy, buy the new $1200 and $2500 ships.
