Star Citizen Work In Progress Footage Released (video)
A new work in progress video has been released by Wing Commander
creator Chris Roberts for his latest project "Star Citizen”, which is
currently in development and was successfully crowd funded.
funding secured Roberts with $3.38 million with nearly 50,000 backers
helping to make the new space game a go. Watch the video after the jump
to learn more about the Star Citizen project and see it in action.
video isn’t as polished as I would normally put out so please be nice
as we’re 24 months away from anything that would be called final, and
even 12 months away from just a multiplayer
alpha dogfighting build,”- "The laser effects, explosions are all
placeholders and there will be significant work done here, as well as
some very cool shield effects I have cooking up in the background. My
goal with the visual effects is to use a lot the techniques and looks
used in film work, which are now possible with DX11 and modern day PCs.”
point of the video isn’t to show the VFX or damage systems, which still
have a ways to go but to demo some of the early AI work that’s been
happening in the background,”-"The Squadron 42 / Star Citizen pilot AI
will be the most sophisticated AI that I’ve attempted on any of my
games. My goal is to take the ideas that I pioneered with Wing Commander
and later games; distinct personalities, dynamic learning, signature
moves to next level with the power of modern CPUs.
a long way off from the final article, but as you can see from the
video AI can already fly in formation, respond to commands and engage in
combat. All the dogfighting you see in this video is AI driven!”
