    They still look like they're headed toward running out of cash sometime before Q4 '20, but I expect that's close enough to the S42 beta to just have some fundraising events and still hit the milestone...S42 sales alone should keep the project afloat for a couple of years.

    Whenever the pledge counter drops below $100k/day, it's not keeping up with the spending.o_O

    I'm not concerned by funding at all. As they've shown last year, they've no problem finding private investment if need be.

    In comparison, the 'Dual Universe' space MMO project has raised around 20 millions$ in funding, 18M$ of which are private investment and 2M$ are from backers.

    The ship is really buggy. Walking through it the renderer randomly breaks and everything goes dark - as if there is no light. I fell through the elevator a few times as well and a couple random doors open but don't close for me.

    The new interfaces on "building blocks" tech are really good though - hopefully 3.9 redoes the majority of them throughout the game.

    Yeah, got to love how 3900x and 2080ti have 30-40fps at very high 1080p. :D

    Vulkan will do miracle for this game.

    carrack now spawns in HUGE hangers so you have to be drunk to not get it out now.

    also is open to all backers i think not just concierge etc anymore so you can help crash the servers.

    i been geeing 30k errors all day and i never seen them, so something is hammering the bloody servers. i spent more time running to my carrack then flying it.

    also placeholders, and its on sale. incoming nerf ;p.

    but it supposed to have armor also placeholder, for extreme environments and the window shutters to protect the ship.

    they did stick the 2nd best shield generators in game on it. and 2nd best power plant.

    got all my guns swapped to rhinos 660 dps on every turret.

    too bad trade is borked with all the players/carracks. of course the caterpillar and reclaimer owners not ecstatic.

    careful switching fps weapons also had my rifle vanish as i set foot in a cave to mission last night. and had it vanish randomly other day. best to stick to side arms and never switch guns.

    i apologize ahead if it may sound silly.. but i did not follow this title closely.

    it looks to me like an expensive simulator, not like a video game. can someone explain in a few
    sentences - what it is ? MMO ? flight simulator ? No Man Sky in a more expensive engine ?

    thanks ~
