    Thanks to the admins we have a new Star Citizen prefix to use in the PC Gaming forum. As interest picks up we may graduate these threads into their own sub-forum or even a division forum if warranted.

    in the meantime, feel free to post any NEW threads regarding SC here and be aware of the prefix highlighting it for those interested in this most excellent Chris Roberts endeavor....

    Do we have any word on when the dogfighting module is suppose to come out?

    They recently pushed back the intended December release, Roberts did not want to release on Cryengine's stock multiplayer solution, they want something more like their go-to system for linking/instancing players. No date given, many are speculating January or February but this sounds complicated enough I think it might be longer. I'm no programmer, guess time will tell... In the meantime, they're giving us Hangar module upgrades and a weapons system where you can test fire different weapons you can get in engine.

    Based on what I have read, we are guaranteed to have dog-fighting in some capacity by Xmas, but it will probably only be against AI opponents to start.

    CR has reportedly been personally putting time into the dogfighting module code, presumably to make sure we have something to play with and bang on their servers over the holiday break.

    I just want to add that should you wish to, you can click the prefix and the forum will load with only the prefix of your choice, in effect creating a single topic sub forum. Quite handy when looking for older content or reviewing one game in particular. Blessings to all etc.

    Dogfighting without multi-player =/= dogfighting IMO. Space sandbox maybe. dogfighting? no... But, they can call it whatever they want i suppose.... AI opponents in Dec is not a given, if they have that at least i'd give them a partial complete. honestly, i'd rather wait for a good product than rush them anyway.

    and thanks for the PSA on prefixes Monkey, not something i had noticed...

    Keep in mind that we're talking about the guy who has made EVERY good single-player space dogfighting game in history, and the best atmospheric flight single player dogfighting game too.

    Yep, I have no doubts on the ultimate quality, just whether we will have true Dogfighting by Xmas. I think I'm going to go find a copy of freelancer, all this discussion has me jonesing...

    I'm ready whenever it's released. I may not have all the customizations I want lined up, but squatting the unique id first is most important.

    As mentioned in Wings man hangar, all subscribers have access now to the organization beta. Anyone here is a sub ? :eek:
  14. Fell

    Fell Guild Admin Staff Member

    I am a subscriber, any beta you mention might be under NDA...

    You need an nda for for a webpage and a new chatroll (I assume, as I am not a subscriber) ? Hmm.

    Hey, i don't make the rules, assuming there are rules being promulgated that is...

    Bnorus Veteran Member

    I don't care I am no subscriber and Wingsman mentioned it on the hangar... so out of any NDA. Anyhow, just a heads up :D

    FYI, it was called Chatroll because the (awful, awful) product they were using for chat was a commercial service named Chatroll. Now they're using XMPP via the Openfire server and the Candy web client. The client their contracting with for the new web site stuff seems to just deploy open source software. Not that I'm complaining about that.

    So now it's just called chat, or Jabber if you want to use a product name.
