You HAVE to see these Roaring Twenties-inspired Star Citizen clothes concept pieces

    
34

Chris Roberts and Sandi Gardiner are back at the helm of Star Citizen’s Around the Verse this week, and it’s fun! But let’s be honest, you should skip past the beginning and just go to about 12:40 in the video to see the Hurston concept clothes. They are swanky as heck, Roaring Twenties inspired with a sci-fi twist.

“What we’re looking for in the female assets is something that looks just as good on the female as it did on the male. We’re not looking to spend a ton of time redesigning or recreating all these assets because they already look pretty great. We’re not looking to female-ize or hypersexualize this; we want it to be one-to-one and that it’s just as it as it was on the male – and that it’s overall pretty gender-neutral.”

Worth noting is that 3.4 has moved to the PTU second wave testers – as tipster DK reminds us, that’s basically concierge subbers and other random and hand-picked folks.

Finally, if you were still expecting the promised infodump on Squadron 42, that’s been pushed back to December 20th.

Totally impractical for low gravity.

many find out the hard way that hurston is not a low gravity planet. usually it’s not so fashionably related tho XD

Im more excited to see ArkCorp in full glory. Buildings layout looks much better than at last year Citizencon. Kinda meh that Microtech isnt fully frozen world. I was hoping to see it similar to Interstellar movie’s frozen planet with frozen ruins and we got some Earth type biome.

thats the problem with the way there building the worlds. think it just uses height maps which cant really do the same thing as interstellars frozen world unless they hand create them.

They can do it np. Here is early screenshot of one of ArcCorp moons Lyria:

Also all planets and moons they create have handmade touches.

i don’t see anything about that pic that even at all whatsoever addresses what primal was saying.

anyways yela is pretty frozen. but also nothing like the interstellar frozen planet.

Must admit they do look nice , now maybe they could offer some Victorian/Edwardian style clothes because I do like the steampunk look too.

Good to see they are moving forward at a reasonable rate now even if I have a suspicion that there is no way they can deliver on all their ambitions/goals and that the game will remain in development until the bulk of the backers money runs out at which point it will be released in whatever state it is at the time . Who knows it could be a very polished game by that time with much of what they promised or a buggy unfinished mess .

Lazy peon did quite a nice run down of the mmo that were in production for 2019 and beyond .

Well worth a watch and I agree with his comments that it probably will be in development for a “fair few years” and “lets hope its worth the wait” .

Those clothes look amazing! And wow… I was wondering when these big budget/audience mmorpgs will freaking NOT hypersexualize parts of female body because reasons. I didn’t expect SC to pull it off, it’s a great surprise.

And did I mention they look amazing?

How many zeroes on the clothing bill, though?

For some reason I read ‘pieces’ as ‘prices’…

I love that they’re getting away from hyper-sexualized of the female form, but at the same time I’m not sure how I feel about gender-neutral clothing. I mean it’s great to have a style work well for both sexes, but at the same time is it taking away too much of that which makes us unique? I guess I’m worried we won’t look that much different from each other.

I feel like the suits look gender appropriate. Utility gear isn’t suppose to have sex appeal. This look spells gender equality to me.

Reader

I’m willing to bet they’ll have a lot of other types of less neutral clothing.

I mean, this is a 200m dollar game, isn’t it?

male avatars can strip down to their skivvies and run around (where there’s atmosphere), i expect that will be the case for female avatars too tho i suspect they may have conservative views on nipple gender equality.

I’m sure they’ll add plenty of cosmetics to make you look more unique, no matter which armor/suit you will wear.

Well it’s been well over a year maybe two since I last logged on, whenever it was that they added the FPS stuff. Maybe when 3.4 drops I’ll give it a look again.

You should. Planets and planetary landings are awesome, and since 3.3 patch the FPS doubled, it runs nice and smooth

you definitely should. even if the ai ends up being braindead as malibutomi below says there’s hours upon hours of enjoyment to be had in just fly to moons/planets and landing on them and such lol

Pretty good episode, and I’m really digging the whole date-driven quarterly release thing they got going on.

i like that they are now treating the early access like early access. i don’t expect the best balance ever but the game suffered badly from terrible balance forever. and it’s been fantastic that they’ve been doing balance passes as they added the little bits to it here nad there as they go along. the balance isn’t amazing now but it’s so much better than it once was and the general paradigm of them patching every quarter and doing that stuff has made it alot more engageable on teh regular at least for me.

i also like that they are doing that much asked for economy balance pass in 3.4. various combat missions look worthwhile compared to other avenues to the point i decided to melt my prospector (aside from it just not being in me to wander around scanning rocks for 2-3 hours looking for the perfect rocks to get those 20-40k hauls) as i can just do what i already like doing when i need some extra cash in the incoming patch lol.

3.4 ptu has some nice balance improvements like making the freelancer a little less of a push over against other ships in it’s general price range in combat. as well as turning on hurston mission contnet which should now show up in your mG when over there, and exposing bounty missions to everyone with big buffs to combat mission payments.

the 600i touring is in ptu and making me glad i traded her in for a phoenix effectively recently. especially since she doesn’t even have interior atmosphere like the phoenix. also the elevators continue to be bugged in hilarious fashion :D

unfortunately the NPC ship AI is a bit braindead as of last night more than usual

also decided to melt my prospector as even tho i think the mining game is cool it’s just not for me. picked up an arrow to test as there was some conjecture about wether it’s accel/decel was bugged or what. i think for the most part people who don’t think it’s decel/accel is bad in it’s class are coming at it from ships that it makes sense would be slow to move or slow down. but if you’re a hot shot fighter jock it’s clearly crap. anyways looks like it’s fixed in 3.4 ptu and behaves much more like a ship in it’s class should.
