So I have been reading a lot of James A Corey's the Expanse series lately and now, whenever I look at SC starships, I am immediately cringing and weirded out by the gravity and gravity vectors being orthogonal. I am wondering if anyone would like to see a super realistic game to come out? Would it be too hard to build and deal with wait times that real space travel involves?
Speaking of that, would it be very difficult for CIG to make another game after Star Citizen now that they have all of the tools built? I was thinking that games like Blackwake could be really cool in a MMO environment that CIG is making. Simply inserting their trading mechanics, building a world a fraction of the size that they already have, and building a ship or two more. While I completely understand that this will never happen, I don't fully understand game development and would like to clarify. Are the tools CIG is currently building reusable for any project? Because if they are, could they start churning out smaller games with more limited scope once star citizen is released (I chose blackwake as an example because 20-35 islands and a basic trade mechanic could make that game really fun)?

I have been writing/editing non-fiction for nearly 10 years (my day job) and working on an EPIC Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel in my free time--and its FINALLY getting published!
My book is called RUNE OF THE APPRENTICE (learn more HERE) and and my publisher (Inkshares) is letting me (via their credit system) give away free e-copies or a deep discount $15 off the hardcover! I can't really describe how excited I am that other Sci-fi/Fantasy nerds (like me) can now enjoy my book--and for free! It is the publishing house's hope that by giving you guys the book, that you not only will join the growing Inkshares community online, but also talk about the book (share/like) via social media to generate more buzz, however, that is not obligatory for you all getting the free e-book.
There are a few ways you can get your free e-copy, but the fastest is to just PM me any valid email address you want the publishing house to send it to.
If you want $15 off the hardcover, however, you can follow the below steps to get a $15 credit which knocks the hardcover price down from $25.99 to $10.99 which also includes INTERNATIONAL shipping. This deal will only be available for a VERY limited time, however, so don't wait!
1. Make a new www.Inkshares.com account (uploading a pic and username is highly suggested, but not mandatory)
2. Click "Follow" RUNE OF THE APPRENTICE and "Recommend" on Inkshares (click the tool tips near the top of the page)
3. Wait 10-15 min for your credits to appear.
4. Pre-order either the e-book for free, or the hardcover for an additional $10.99 charge (this includes international shipping.)
Again, the fastest way (for you) to get the free e-copy is to just PM me any valid email address, but if you want to get the hardcover at a discount, jut follow the above steps. It only takes you about 2 min excluding the 15 min wait for the credits to proc.
LASTLY, Inkshares is changing their credit system VERY soon, so I HIGHLY suggest you either PM me or follow the above steps, ASAP. I have a feeling they will only continue to do this for another few days, max, so don't wait!
Free free to hit me up below in the comment or via PM with any questions. I am super stoked to be able to give you guys/gals my book for free and drum up excitement! It's been a long time coming!
