Star Citizen shows off the Greycat ROC mining buggy and blows up an Idris

Star Citizen’s latest video digest is all about breaking stuff up, whether it’s breaking up rocks for materials in the newly revealed Greycat ROC or watching an Idris break up into huge pieces of dead spaceship as it blows apart.

In the first half of the video, we’re introduced to the Greycat ROC, a little ground vehicle that offers players a new mining tool for their rock nibbling operations. It features a mining laser as one would expect, but that same laser can also be swapped over to a collection mode to hoover up discovered ore. It also represents the first of several planned profession-focused ground vehicles. After all, not everyone wants to race into combat. Players can look forward to this new vehicle’s arrival in alpha 3.10.

In the second half of the video, we spend an inordinate amount of time on the creation of explosions, using the death of the Idris frigate as the canvas for destructive art. Simply having the ship go pop doesn’t appear to be enough for CIG, as the video outlines how VFX and systems designers work together to make explosions work, as well as using other tools like a mood board and a timeline of the chain of events that rock through the ship. There’s even a pre-production and actual production stages to making an Idris go kerblooey, apparently. It’s a lot is basically the point.

I look forward to the inevitable Netflix documentary series about the development of this game . It might even make the events in the Tiger King series look sane in comparison .

Count me in as a miner. My space game will be to find the best mining materials and to safely get those materials to the best markets. As to space fighting, I will just follow behind and collect the debris for my “in space” mining.

Its like free money! :)

I wonder if that’s what CR thinks every time those Insiders are released.

My guess is that Roberts thinks he deserves it because he’s a GENIUUUUS!

Stop covering this scam

I think it’s important that the media covers this game. I think it should be covered more in fact. Especially in the light of CiGs communication with the backers that pay their salaries is only being active when the media starts criticizing them.

LoL… weekly communication, including SQ42 related features implemented in SC… and this for years.
For sure the darkest and more silent developer company the gaming community have discovered over years… and support also more over years :)

I still am looking forward to the game and hope the project getz to a Retail V 1.0 release and beyond, but yeah all things considered even I feel they should rename that show to:

INSIDE STORE CITIZEN

I am getting tired of every ISC spending a good chunk of time promoting the latest and greatest vehicle/weapon/ship, etc. to pledge for and even the second half usually just has ‘development fluff’ – really “making explosions”…

What’s the current status on I-Cache development?

How are they doing of Back End Service development/refinement?
^^^
These are the type of things they should cover in a show that supposedly about DEVELOPMENT of the game, even if it’s a boring – “Hey we added some new commands to a menu…”<— In a show about game development they should spend more time talking about the GAME SYSTEM/ENGINE development (IMO).

100% guaranteed that you few guys around come first :)

5 to 15 guys up-voting each others. For sure the all project have fallen over time because of you… or the opposite despite numerous “drama”?

Good timing Failing as usual :)

Any chance you could post this in English, I have no idea what you’re talking about… “For sure the all project have fallen over time because of you”

Reader
Joe Blobers

Mentioning English is always from the lowest commenters: guaranteed. Thanks for confirmation anyway :)

Whenever someone mentions up-voting, it’s usually because they’re self-conscious about their own low up-vote count. Poor Joe.

Reader

Pathetic attempt to understand other psychological behavior as I don’t care at all about being upvoted/downvoted… but you of course avoid the main point of my remark:

It has gone from the absurd to the ridiculous .
