Star Citizen, one of the few early access games that may actually be coming out

It's literally just a space life simulator
If everyone had military training and was in an army
Or a smuggler
Or a housewife from the mid-west

I'm more excited for elite:dangerous

I prefer those graphics to hyper realism

I was hyped, than I saw a gameplay trailer which featured a not even finished dogfighting part, I doubt if they can pull something off like EVE in the time they have left.

But does it have voice simulation software?

you mean scam citizen? lol, must be happy playing "support the game" until the end of time

You literally have no idea how long it takes to do anything in game development do you? you have to make models for everything, then give those models UV maps so they can be textured without distortion, then make the textures, Normal maps and bump maps for those textures just to make stationary objects, if it moves you have to give it an animation rig so you can animate it, make the animation in a way akin to stop-motion JUST TO MAKE THE VISUAL ASSETS. all of this has to be designed in the first place by the way, so that everything looks like it fits. Each one of these steps takes about 8 work hours PER ASSET. so you're looking at a week per asset per designer, just so that the developer can START his job in applying logic to the asset, which isn't just 'lets just type Asset.StartMoving() and boom done. Logic can take days just solve an issue....

I don't give a **** if you're baiting, don't ******* joke about game development, there hasn't been a day in the last month where I didn't work more than 12 hours, and guess what? WE STILL DON'T HAVE AS MUCH AS IS SHOWN IN THAT GIF. **** YOU AND YOUR IMPATIENT ARSE YOU IGNORANT PRICK

Nether got out of early access tho.
User avatar #9 to #7 - pwnagraphy (07/04/2014) [-]
Granted there's a chance you're going to need a computer that causes brown outs when you turn it on to run the full game decently
#96 to #9 - dross (07/05/2014) [-]
i7 3770k, gtx 780, 8gb ram here. Runs at a pretty solid 60fps in the dogfight module.

Loads like a cunt, even off an ssd, and when the assets are 'loaded' they're not always... loaded. **** breaks a lot.

That said, the dogfight module was worth the £28 I spent on the full game and access.

Getting different random parts of your ship blown to **** is just amazing, aside from CRASHING INTO ******* SPACE THINGS I've not died the same way twice.

I even managed to get a wing from a scythe actually stuck inside my aurora's tail and it made me fly like **** .

Hype train boarding now.

welp I guess my i3 isnt going to cut it then
#20 to #10 - alexanderh (07/05/2014) [-]
An i3 is not going to be enough, and it is not going to run on any laptop without melting it.
The current minimum specs are a quad core CPU, 8 GB of ram and a GTX 460 or equivalent.
I'd recommend a 7xx series card from Nvidia.

It is, by far, the most graphically impressive game I have ever seen. Especially the damage model is good. When you shoot a part of a spaceship, that part is damaged and will eventually break. And when you blow a spaceship up, parts of it turn into shrapnel and will fly along the vector until it hits something, with some force applied to it from the explosion. And when parts break, they come off. You can shoot off wings off of spaceships, and they will handle differently because of a change in the center of mass.
Really impressive stuff. The flight model is pretty weird right now, but they are going to improve on it in later iterations.
User avatar #54 to #20 - thewhitezombie (07/05/2014) [-]
... my laptop has an 8 core, gtx 870 and 16gb of ram. I think I'll be just fine thanks. No melting required.
#113 to #54 - alexanderh (07/05/2014) [-]
Have you tried running it?
And could you provide a link to your laptop?
User avatar #116 to #113 - thewhitezombie (07/05/2014) [-]
Oh, and more importantly, the thing doesn't heat up at all. It ejects all the heat out the back so the laptop can run my biggest games and still be cool to the touch.
#118 to #116 - alexanderh (07/05/2014) [-]
Yeah, I said the same about my thinkpad E531, but when I tried running it, it got seriously hot. Like, it heated up enough to the point that I got a little worried, before the game crashed.
The CPU is likely to be a major bottleneck. mobile CPUs are significantly weaker than their desktop counterparts, so it's not at all guaranteed to run it well, if at all.
#117 to #115 - alexanderh (07/05/2014) [-]
It may be able to run it on mid-low spec without overheating.
But at the moment, the game has quite literally melted a graphics card. A standard 460 was, quite literally, melted upon running it. Nothing wrong with it before that.
It is very demanding, and is going to push your pc as far as it can possibly go. I wouldn't try running it, there's a very real risk of overheating your pc.
User avatar #119 to #117 - thewhitezombie (07/05/2014) [-]
I have double the cores, double the memory, and three times the gpu power you listed as required. And no, this thing doesn't heat up. And don't even try and compare this to your little notebook with an onboard intel HD gpu, I really hope that was a joke. This is a gaming rig, not a business netbook.
#120 to #119 - alexanderh (07/05/2014) [-]
Okay, you don't seem to know anything about what you're talking about.
First off, you do not have double the cores. You have four. The cores do have hyperthreading, but it's still four physical cores. Hyperthreading makes windows believe there's 8, but there's really only four. And those four cores will not be as good as desktop cores.
And the comparison to my thinkpad was more about heat, not performance. This thing is the best cooled laptop I have seen so far, and never gets hot during normal use, not even when the discrete graphics (equivalent to a 745m, and it is an actual nvidia card) run at full power. Star Citizen still managed to push it much further than anything else on the market currently.

Your laptop might be able to run it, but I wouldn't count on it. I don't think the CPU is powerful enough to run it. Simple as that. The performance is 15 % lower than that of an un-overclocked i7-970, which is just about enough to run it.
So, you're probably going to have trouble running it well.

If you're really interested in high end gaming, you'll build yourself a desktop rig. They are always going to outperform laptops.
User avatar #121 to #120 - thewhitezombie (07/05/2014) [-]
I have a desktop, and it's a monster. I just don't like using it. I like setting the laptop on a board, sitting on a couch, and keeping it on my lap. And I don't think I'm likely to throw my laptop in the scrap heap over one game. As for the cores, I've never cared about the difference between physical cores and virtual cores and I'm not about to start now. All I care about is the final performance output.
#135 to #121 - alexanderh (07/06/2014) [-]
And the performance of 4 physical plus 4 virtual is always going to be less than 8 physical, no matter what. You might even get unlucky and get less performance in game than with 4 physical, 0 virtual, since you risk windows assigning two very heavy threads to the same physical core.

You shouldn't dump your laptop for any game, especially not since you have a desktop that should be able to run the game. You're probably not going to run it at max settings at release at 4k, since that is supposed to bring the equivalent of a dual-titan rig to its knees. It releases in a couple of years, and the goal is to make it scale as much as your computer can handle, with it becoming more visually great as your GPU power goes up.

By the way, playing like you prefer is not very recommended for Star Citizen. It's a space sim, and is therefore best played with a joystick/HOTAS setup and with either TrackIR or the Rift.

and im just here with my gtx 770 like, lel pesents
#114 to #25 - alexanderh (07/05/2014) [-]
The 770 is plenty to run it at very high @ 1080p 60 FPS. That's what I do.
#50 to #25 - 4chan refugee (07/05/2014) [-]
lol same man windforce 3x biatch
User avatar #22 to #20 - roflnaut (07/05/2014) [-]
Hell yeah I can run this game with the minimum specs.
#48 to #22 - greyhoundfd (07/05/2014) [-]
Given the time frame on this game, I might be able to afford the CPU by the time it actually comes out.
#18 to #10 - railyeightseven ONLINE (07/04/2014) [-]
I prepared myself with my glorious 8 core FX8320 just need to get Radeon R9 280
#24 to #18 - 4chan refugee (07/05/2014) [-]
no. lots of people are going nuts trying to upgrade their cpus... just forget it. the only think you need to focus on is getting a titan-z


I don't think people realize how significant this bad boy right here is..this throws the gaming industry on its head. You save for this guy and upgrade everything around it..seriously that's what you need to do. This is a modular computer that you plug into your computer thats probably better than your actual computer.
#136 to #24 - alexanderh (07/06/2014) [-]
You just don't know what you're talking about, do you? A great CPU is just as, if not more, important than a kickass GPU. If your CPU is **** , your GPU will not be able to use its full potential, and you will be unable to do anything else but game at a time.
#98 to #24 - germed (07/05/2014) [-]
You being completely serious with what you just said made me laugh at this website for the first time in weeks.

I guess you have no idea how games bottleneck do you

The Titan Z is just not worth the money, man.
User avatar #19 to #18 - dsendz (07/04/2014) [-]
This is what I'm going to build
I'm going with the fx-6300

Dell Inspiron

Get on my level ******
User avatar #13 to #12 - pwnagraphy (07/04/2014) [-]
I can't even find the specs for mine because it's worn to ****

$50 at a yard sale
There's probably CP somewhere
User avatar #14 to #13 - dsendz (07/04/2014) [-]
thats when you throw out the harddrive and start again

>Being able to dis/reassemble
User avatar #16 to #15 - dsendz (07/04/2014) [-]
you can't change your hardrive on that laptop

there is usually an access panel on the bottom. remove one screw and it slides away. and you can access the ram and the harddrive. Mine even lets you upgrade the wifi card
#40 to #16 - 4chan refugee (07/05/2014) [-]
Hehehe so this bad boy right here should be able to handle it, right?

P.S. It only took me 5 minutes to upload this picture. We have fast dial-up speeds.
User avatar #49 to #40 - dsendz (07/05/2014) [-]
I would ******* love to have that laptop
#23 to #16 - 4chan refugee (07/05/2014) [-]
Custom built PC with 16GBs of ram on 2x 8GB ddr3 1333mhz sticks, going to upgrade to 32GB + intel core i7 4770k overclocked to 3.9ghz with no overvolting, and dual reference EVGA gtx 780s with the one that's in front of the other's cooler having a backplate so it heats less the one behind it. that's my PC. i also have an old ATI all-in-wonder 128MB graphics card so i can watch TV on my pc (this thing has AVI/RGB and cable TV ins and a composite output that can do 1080p, i love this card)
#79 to #23 - railyeightseven ONLINE (07/05/2014) [-]
why not going for HyperX blu RAM which is 1666MHz
#43 to #23 - 4chan refugee (07/05/2014) [-]
And she runs the lastest version of Win 3.1! Ha, so epic right?
