It gives a look into what is going on in development. The most interesting is probably the last paragraph:

"
So when do we get to play Star Marine on the PTU?

Overall, it’s been another week of terrific progress. I’m proud of this team and the things we’re accomplishing as each day we move closer and closer to an initial PTU push. At present, we’re working on a patch release based on the new code-base for Star Citizen. We’ll need your help testing Star Citizen’s new code base and server changes in 1.3.0 and we hope you’ll get that very soon. If Star Marine is in the bare minimum shape to release it to you on PTU we will include it in 1.3.0. If it isn’t, we’re going to hold it until we feel it is. These are the hard choices, but it’s important we have something that you can test for us effectively before we go to PTU. Just know that everyone here wants this in your hands as much as you do, and we look forward to everyone seeing the very first iteration of Star Marine as soon as we can. It’s almost here!

Outside of the first chapter coming out late this year, we know next to nothing, Citizeoncon is coming out so maybe they'll reveal more then.

I believe SQ42 will be both spaceship and FPS? Not entirely sure, I don't read much about SQ42 so I avoid spoilers. Also think there will be multiple ways to complete missions.

SQ42 is a military campaign. Both FPS and flight.

It will be guided as its a military campaign. You'll be taking orders / climbing the ranks. Shooting space lions. Oh wait...


At least that's the last that I heard. They had also said you could just bail on it n go straight to the PU.

From what I remember, completing the SQ42 is one of the ways to earn a citizenship. If you choose to skip or otherwise leave this campaign you enter the PU without citizenship or the benefits that entails. The difference between Citizen and civilian is covered under the second part of writer's guide.

So, Derek Smart is out again with new "reliable" insider info. He's saying CIG has been burning 3.5mill a month and have about 8mill left in the bank of the 90mill. I don't really believe what he says, but I've seen on news sites and other forums where people are becoming really wary of this whole project and his blog posts are like throwing napalm into the fire. I hope the event they are having will show us something positive and good progress. I'm not really thrilled about them throwing another massive ship for sale.

this numbers game has been going on since the beginning. I'm guessing that someone with enough time could sit down & estimate it to within 10% of where they really are. All the data is available, it's just scattered. one of the big IFs would be guessing salaries. A CiG employee roster would need to be found/assembled so that you would know how many of what position they staff, then assume they pay those people less than normal (an admitted flaw of CiG from CR himself) What they're paying to rent their facilities could also be easily found /estimated within margin based on previous pricings. Technologies costs? They aren't just using cryengine tools.

has there been a mass defect of employees yet? That's when you'll know stuff is really about to hit it.

I haven't been keeping up, so I just watched everything from 2014 & 2015... slow she goes, but she goes. i like that the 2015 gamescom vertical slice was 99.99% live action...

Chris Roberts has been making games for nearly 30 years. I don't see him ruining his name and his company's over poor budget management. The more I research Derek Smart, the more I find out about how much of a loser he is. He's very clearly just trying to wreck CIG and get attention. Wouldn't it make sense for someone who released multiple failure space sim games to be jealous of someone who's had great success? He needs to learn that Roberts earned his fans' trust by releasing good products (we'll ignore the Wing Commander movie), and that's why he has the luxury today of developing a game with a 90 million dollar crowd-funded budget. I've seen the exact same kind of accusations in the past few months with the Shenmue III Kickstarter. Some people just want to watch the world burn.

Yeah true, also Derek Smart is coming out with his own space game too (or a sequel or something) which looks really bad and I'm being polite. Surprised he didn't advertise it this time like he did the last few times he has bashed Star Citizen.

Hopefully the citizen convention event gives us new info and sheds some light to the schedule and where we stand right now with the game. Still a long way to go though.
