Star Citizen: Alpha 2.5 is LIVE!

Roberts Space Industries is a spacecraft manufacturer within the persistent-world game “Star Citizen” and its companion single-player spaceflight sim, “Squadron 42.” RSI is also your portal for information, updates, and purchases of your very own spacecraft with which to trade, plunder, and protect the citizens of Star Citizen.

The original SQ42 trailer is massively dated compared to now. Look at the F7A, then look at the updated F7A mark2 that chris smith recently showed off it looks insanely different. Also look at the sneak peek of the new Bengal super carrier it will be bigger than the one in the SQ42 video and vastly improved on the inside to. Star citizen is what it looks like for real. Wait until you see the new SQ42 trailer which im betting will be at citizencon. It will annihilate the original one.

The best way to try it out is once you’re disconnected from the server .. Gonna try it out tonight with my i7/GTX980/16GbRam and share the results, because for me while playing online I only get around 20/30 FPS and even lower on the new GrimHex station –”

SC will not use traditional server methods, they will use digital cloud based servers, achieving far faster results in terms of latency / positional accuracy than conventional server hosting methods. That being said, currently im not sure if they are using standard hardware servers (-wouldn’t be surprised for pre release) or the cloud system in 2.5.

Google is “onboard” in assisting the development of the cloud servers, as far as i know these servers will actually be Google facility’s. The cloud system they aim to use in the final release is supposed to be “pioneering” for the MMO industry.

Changing graphical settings does essentially nothing to performance, so if the game would be “playable enough” you might as well set things to high. You’ll get a prettier game without losing much or any performance because something else (netcode) is munching your frames, not the visuals. Your PC can handle those.

Just check out the FPS in Arena Commander. Youtuber by the name of BoredGamer also has a guide on somewhat better performance but it did fuckall for me since my PC can handle the graphics ezpz even with inefficient settings. Might do more for you, so there’s that as suggestion.
