any word on inertia and gravity physics?

I like the fact that you can build your own ships smile but not so keen on MMO type of play

Can anybody link to the extended video trailer? Tried to log into Robert's site to view it but an access code was required (and 101010 didn't work)

Just say no to MMO.

I like SP. I like coop MP. I care little for H2H MP, and I don't do MMOs ever.

Thanks for that link. This has the potential to be fantastic, and could be THE space combat sim we've been waiting over a decade for. I like his ideas concerning single and multi-player. I'm going to send the guy some money. I suggest you guys do, too. It's not like we have any other gaming options out there, with X Rebirth in limbo.

What you don't like is competition. You have this stigma of someone real beating you.

This is going to be the first game I help crowdfund, without a doubt. I'm quite excited for what this game could become.

Stigma? That's an odd way of putting it. I don't eat any seafood or drink any alcohol either, but that is because I find both disgusting so I have no more interest in consuming them than I do in broiled weasel.

As for competition, no I don't. I hate all sports (never cared for any them to play or watch) so when things like strikes happen in the NFL or baseball I just laugh at people getting all upset about it. Besides, MMOs aren't competitions, they're silly game crack to make you keep paying every month to satisfy some bean counter. I do not like my gaming enjoyment relying on others. I do not like or trust people, and I have decades of experience that bears that out.

Not to say I'm not competitive, rather I don't like the effects being in competition has on me. In short, it makes me angry. Very angry. Road rage angry. Unless I win 100% of the time, which naturally is an unrealistic expectation. Ergo I do not enjoy them. So WTF is the point of doing something that you don't enjoy but only makes you angry?

Maybe I should start my own MMO that consists of people sending me money every month and me sending them daily emails in return that the servers are down and will be back up tomorrow. You'd like that, right? Why not? Wouldn't you enjoy it? By your reasoning that's not a good reason not to pay.

That, or he could be like me, where I generally dislike anyone online considering 90% of them are complete a-holes. Single player sucks you in, and so can coop with like-minded friends, but competitive MP generally brings out the d-bags in massive droves (all MMO status does is increase the drove size). This looks completely brilliant, and I'm a space sim fanatic, but if this is going to be heavy on the multiplayer side (coop is fine mind you) I'm out, not interested at all. I like single player with coop options, nothing else really grabs my attention. But tho each their own, it's good to see the genre getting some more love smile.

I chipped in on Nexus 2, it's different. I still want to see how this develops to be different from Black Prophecy and Eve. Sounds like it will land right in the middle, which is good, but I'm not sure about fighter based space sims anymore.

There haven't been any good or great fighter-based space sims since IWar2, IMO, and that was 2000.

I may get the 250 pledge just so I can have a RSI Constellation spaceship (if that means a carrier).

If it is not control of a capital ship then I might just wait for the game to get released before I decide.
