103 posts in this topic

The 2015 GamesCom will live stream on 7 August at 1800 UTC. I will try to embed it here. That way SCB can discuss it while watching from 'home.'

  CIG is at Hall 10.1 A33

 

Good copy of the demo courtesy of RSI. Thanks @AstroJak!

 

The full presentation ~ Thanks @VoA   Won't embed. 

 

 

In addition the following ships will be for sale there and on the RSI site during the convention and come with 2yi:

Attendees will also receive a selection of Star Citizen artifacts including the first in a series of collectible ship pins and an event-specific poster! And for the first time, limited ships will be available for purchase directly at the event for Concierge and Subscriber backers! The following ships will be available for purchase from representatives on site, and will come with a physical ‘ship registration’ certificate suitable for framing.

Aegis Retaliator
Anvil Carrack
Drake Caterpillar
RSI Orion
Aegis Reclaimer
Khartu-al (Xi’an Scout)
Banu Merchantman
These ships will also be available online during the event for those that can not attend.
 

 And

Digital Merchandise

We’re bringing back digital event items! Gamescom attendees will receive an exclusive ‘Cologne 2945’ poster for their Hangars AND a local-themed ship skin. Digital items will be available in the pledge store for those who can’t attend closer to the event. The Gamescom trophy and digital poster will be available in the pledge store for backers who are unable to attend. Additionally, ALL subscribers will receive a second variant Gamescom trophy for their Hangars. Digital items will be attributed next week.

Corvette is a long way off, I asked Ben about it a couple months ago on Star Cast and they basically hadn't even started working on it at all yet.

I believe they have discussed it internally 2-3 times but obviously hasn't gone to a concept artist. I understand it will most likely be part of the next wave of ships. Which I'm guessing will be later this year or early next...

Maybe I'll need a carrack to bring home.  It'd be better if they just gave us some hanger ready ships...

Who needs pixels, when you can have a certificate saying that you bought pixels. I mean that's something and counters those that say you're paying money for something that doesn't even exist (yet) ;)

It would be neat if they would allow printing of those certificates. I think there are some people that would like to have them too, but can not go to gamescom or who might be there, but don't have the money to spend on more ships.
Otherwise putting them up on the website, would add more work to the web team...so probably not

The Reclaimer should be able to tear up stuff, should be quite interesting. The Caterpillar needs more love from CIG before making a judgement call.

Except that these tactics (filling the hull with explosives, aiming it at a capital ship, separating the command section and flying it in through the resulting hole) will result in your ship not being covered by insurance.
