    I'm also a realist concerning game development times, but what about funding? For how long can they keep it up?

    Won't be a problem, they can just spit out concept ships left and right.
    Remember, while the game might not be completed for quite some time, you can still play it.

    Assuming that the internet accountants out there aren’t full of total shit, CIG is making more than enough a year to fund their studios on a year by year basis plus having a moderately health reserve. If funding declines in a sensible manner rather than all at once, they’ve probably got 3-5 years of funding left in them plus downsizing giving them time if needed.

    Based on what I’m seeing progress wise, they really need 3 more years and more than likely could use 5 more years with development post launch and assorted bug and performance tweaks to be made. It’s my belief that unless funding declines precipitously, they’ll be okay at least.

    It’s also my belief that they’re uncertain about way too many systems for the game to be well conceived or implemented so it’s going to be a bit of a shit show at launch and maybe will never get better. I would like to be wrong on that part. Still, good news is that they are strong on their stance to have modding tools and we can run our own servers with our own jury rigged systems to make it fun.

    I may be too pessimistic on the implementation but I do fully believe that they have the funding and methods of funding to be fine for completing the development stages and hopefully the post development work needed to maybe make it an amazing experience.

    If those tools are available before SC is released I can see it now a whole bunch of Total Conversion Mods going through their own Alpha's, Beta's and final releases all before SC manages to.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance has gone from kickstarter to complete since we started waiting for star citizen, that uses CryEngine, has some pretty swanky game tech and also promised much more than people thought they would be able to deliver.

    Mind you that's 16 sq km with 2 vehicles and a few personal weapons

    Kingdom come looks like it's pretty shit though. That combat and those animations, all pretty terrible. Only thing it seems to do well is nature but that's an engine blessing more than anything.

    I really hope they release something early on but with the core systems still being developed, I donít think we will see it soon. Personally Iíd like to see a battle star galactica mod that is limited to the Galactica but comes with a sort of spy vs counter spy deal like the board game but you can sabotage the systems or repair them yourself.
