Ahh, well now it is a little different...It is more like a raffle ticket than a blind pre-purchase. I might have to look at this on the weekend

It is just...I can't remember the last "Space game" that was any good...Star Wolves 3 maybe? and that is just one that I liked. The genre (if you can say that Space themed games are their own genre) has kind of gone to the dogs and I can't help but be nervous about buying one before release.

What about the X series?

I love them, and would definitely call them good.

I think X3:AP came out before Star Wolves 3 though.

I do like the X games...though the out of system vrs in system combat annoys me to no end. Plus you can amass huge fleets of capital ships, but you can't move them through jump gates...you'll have 50% casualties from collisions unless you send them through first then if there is a bad guy over there you'll likely loose some ships to out of system combat.

The game is really designed to be a single player flying in a single ship and honestly once you are in a fully kitted Boreas there isn't anything you can't solo in the game. I had grand aspirations of my fleet of death moving systematically from system to system cleansing every one LOL...it took two hours to navigate them through a few jump gates...that was the last I played.

The fact that there hasn't been a great space sim in around ten years is one of the main reasons why I pledged. We need another good one to come out if the genre has any chance of getting revived.

As far as quality goes I have faith since it's being made by Chris Roberts and much of the core group from Origin and Digital Anvil, the people behind the Wing Commander series, Privateer, and Freelancer. Typically I don't donate to game developers who are crowd funding regardless of how interesting the game may seem because they often don't have the track record to prove they can do what they are promising. However, Star Citizen and Project Eternity are the exceptions to that norm since both are being developed by people who have experience making quality games of the type they are proposing. Obsidian knows how to make a great isometric RPG, and Chris Roberts and they guys on board from Origin and Digital Anvil know how to make a great space sim.

More in depth info from Chris Roberts on how singleplayer and multiplayer will coexist on the same server, as well as a detailed description of how the instancing will work in the game:

http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/chris-roberts-on-multiplayer-single-player-and-instancing/

In short, there will be a pvp preference option that will allow players to customize how much pvp action they run into. However, pve battles will offer less rank and reputation rewards than pvp ones, so Roberts envisions this option working out as a set of "training wheels" for new players before they feel ready. Additionally, there will be systems where pvp will be prevalent regardless of your pvp preference. These systems will be fringe systems with high criminal activity and little security, but will offer the most lucrative trade opportunities.

As for the instancing, the main "galaxy server" keeps track of all player locations and is responsible for putting people into orbit, battle, or event instances. It will place you with other people based on skill level, alignment, pvp preference, and whether a player tagged another as a point of interest (like a pirate tagging a trader while on a planet and then following them when they take off). If you enter a battle instance, your friends can jump in to help you as long as they are in the same system. If they aren't, they can only join if they make it to your system before the battle is over. However, if you own a ship with multiple player slots, such as the constellation that has turrets and a short range fighter, your friends can join you on your ship from anywhere in galaxy to man those turrets and that fighter.

"The advantage of this system is that is allows you to tailor your experience towards your preference – solo, co-op or full PvP."

Hmmm. I hope that doesn't mean players can insta-switch to PvE from PvP when the going gets tough...
