  • Waiting for 3.0...

    Saw this on reddit and thought you all might get a chuckle.


    Waiting for 3.0


    Although, my wait hasn't become painful yet. I desperately need a machine upgrade and the funds still haven't materialized.

      Ya. I hear you about that. In anycase. Now 3.0 is going to be pushed back to after Gamescon.



      Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.

        Looks like they pushed it back to September. But I was just reading the roadmap and what they are releasing in 3.0 and wow some pretty cool stuff:

        I'm looking forward to cargo, missions, and a delta patcher / upgrade client (so we won't have to download an entire giant file every update!).

            I periodically check the schedule-report link (posted above) and few weeks ago there were like 30-40 bugs IIRC, now down to 7...

                What's Evocati? Their play test server?

                  The evocati sign an NDA.

                    So maybe "who" would have been the better question? Alpha/beta testers in the community? A 3rd party QA company?

                    Also, graphic still sitting at "7" however hasn't been updated since I last posted that. Maybe they only update that weekly or so?

                        Ok, let me give an example. Murray is an evocati as far as I remember. Evocati are the very first wave of testers that are provided test experiences which is to say that they are the pre-PTU test wave. They are required to sign an NDA to keep non-officially released information silenced.

                          I gotcha. So, they are a relatively smaller group than full PTU, if everything goes OK with them then they can decide to release to full PTU group for further larger scale testing. Makes sense.

                            I think there are under 1000 Evocati.

                              We are thrilled that the first version of Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 was released to our Evocati testers. This is a major step forward in our efforts to get Alpha 3.0 into everyone’s hands. The first stage of public testing is important for so many reasons, but primarily it means we have many, many more people playing the game and providing feedback to guide us through the next round of improvements. Based on tester feedback, we will continue to smash bugs, implement fixes, and improve the user experience. As we move towards a full live release, we’ll expand the test group so more players can participate in the process and experience Alpha 3.0. We couldn’t possible create this amazing Star Citizen universe without our backers and testers. So, we thank you all and look forward to seeing you in the ‘verse.
