Dog Fighting Module Access - 03/24/14 01:41 AM

For everyone interested in Star Citizen's dog fighting module, the module is set to release April 10-11. Anyone interested in gaining access to this alpha and still hasn't pledged, should do so soon. There are under 4500 spots remaining to access dog fighting. The minimum pledge needed to for access is the single ship pledge of the Aurora MR for $40.00. This will also unlock beta and the full game upon completion. No monthly fee required. Any questions PM me for more info.

Anyone that has interest to upgrade ships or trade ships in for a different one be warned on one important face. You will have to keep at least one of the ships in your hangar that say alpha and beta. If you melt that down to purchase something else you will lose alpha and beta access.

Unless they say otherwise expect this.

I will check out the DFM, but probably wont play much of it until its not a giant buggy POS and the "Arena" GvG lobby is instituted. Which means the Org module needs to drop with DFM interface for lobby invites.

Don't promise what you can't deliver...

"A serious amount of time was spent building the Arena Commander leaderboard system which will carry pilot and org stats for the module."

they are working on the org's and the DFM just not sure how it will work but if they are planning on tracking orgs performance it must have some kind of selection process

ps
can not understand their multi membership obsession??

Because when it comes to espionage and Org Meta Game, Chris Roberts has his head stuck in the ground and is a complete noob or just refuses to admit that Citizens would use the Multi Org system to Spy and cutthroat assets.

CR has been warned multiple times by multiple large scale Orgs that when the crying starts that some SOB that infiltrated your ORG conned you out of hard assets, don't say we didn't tell you.

"refuses to admit that Citizens would use the Multi Org system to Spy and cutthroat assets."

This is what CR wants he has been watching EVE news stories instead of playing EVE

most ORG's are going to be closed anyway if you want to spy you will spy with a different account with no link to your own ORG not use a system that has/will have built in ways of finding out your hidden org

Posted By: Zhou

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 05/12/14 10:55 PM

The way it works multi crew ships will be in the 2nd release of the dog fighting module. It's being released in 3 big stages. Those with multi crew ships will most likely get a hornet to fight with until their ship has been released in the module.

Posted By: Zhou

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 05/15/14 02:38 AM

Nope, from what I've read it will not be release till dog fighting release 3 when they add FPS elements to dog fighting with the capture the idris match type. Being able to fly it probably not till squadron 42. It's the campaign capital ship so everyone will at least know what ones like I guess haha.
Posted By: Hobbitlauncher

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 05/15/14 12:53 PM

Technically the Bengal is the capital ship. Idrii (?) would be their primary escorts. I imagine we'll see the Idris, Tali, Starfarer, and Cat soon(tm) as they'll want people giving them a thorough crawling over and through before pushing them through into less controlled environments like SQ42 and DFM
Posted By: Zhou

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 05/15/14 01:08 PM

Bengal is the main capital ship, however according to Chris Roberts Squadron 42 will be based off the Idris's and the Bengal carrier won't appear in dog fighting only the Idris's as the largest ship. Idris's won't appear until release 3 dog fighting by Chris Roberts, so if he says that I don't expect it earlier but I won't rule out later. Constellations and such should be in release 2 of dog fighting as per Chris Roberts and the PAX East reveal.

^This

And why I have four vet backer accounts and how I was able to safely grey market hard assets and almost pay off my entire investment into SC. Hell, I even paid off the gifts to Drakiis and Donk.

The only real repercussion you face would be an IP scan of all accounts and would only work if CiG was willing to go that far and you were lazy and aren't running an IP proxy range. I think about a dozen or so of the usual suspects sent CR and Wingman what they could expect if they allowed "Ship assignment" to others in your Org and the entire in-game asset aspect, regardless of Multi-Orgs, which just made it easier.

As usual, no one wants to believe that the cutthroat hardcore meta is going to be there and when you make statements that you want to eliminate or highly mitigate in-game mechanics that facilities the ability to grief Citizens, and then you ignore the human element to that statement, it's very telling about the actual commitment of CR to let go of his belief of the way things are and accept the reality of the human element.

Expect a river of tears once this title goes live in the PU and the ability to con your way into access of hard in game assets of an organization and then pilfer them and filter to your own use. I don't expect CR or CIG to change there stance or the game mechanics that will allow for this to happen until after the fact.

CIG is already playing the Favored Son with multi-player in some of the larger Orgs that are chalked full of white knights...like BWC, LAMP, IMPERIUM

I personally can't wait to poop on these Orgs so hard in the early days of the live PU and let history continue to repeat itself...

This is why you have multiple accounts to get around whatever Person of Interest scanning system CIG employs.

Many of these Orgs are openly recruiting as well, which imo is a disastrous idea because if you are sending out mass form letters of recruiting like the dozen or so I have received, you are setting your own Org up for attacks from within. If I had access to 3+ accounts I could have already infiltrated several Orgs, established myself before alpha/beta/release, burrowed in deep, and by the time I was comfortable with my accounts progress and wealth funneled tons of intel and resources to KGB. All of those Orgs listed and several others have been sending out invites to their clans blindly and that is a mistake..
Posted By: Zhou

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 05/19/14 06:04 PM

It's pointless to mass recruit. These orgs with 1,000+ people will never play together. You cant fit that many in a single sector.

Quality or quantity.

Greetings Citizens,

One warning before we get started: the updated launched for Arena Commander will completely replace your Hangar Module's USER folder. This is where CryEngine saves screenshots by default... so if you have previous screenshots (or other saved data) that you want to preserve, please go ahead and move them now BEFORE patching to Arena Commander.

reetings Citizens,

The go/no-go meeting has happened and the word is GO! Arena Commander V0.8 is currently being uploaded to our server partners. If all goes according to plan, the module should be available to play later tonight! There’s no need to keep reloading your Star Citizen Launcher: we will post here as soon as the download is available.

In the meantime, we’ve put together a quick gallery of what we call “body horror” screenshots collected by the team in Santa Monica over the past several months. These show off some of the more bizarre bugs we’ve run into during the game’s development. We expect you’ll find a lot more once you start helping us test Arena Commander… but hopefully these have all been eliminated!

USER IINSTRUCTIONS
Once it's live, you'll need to pick up your helmet -- it'll be on a stand in your Hangar. After you have the helmet, go board your DFM ship and you'll be able to fly it.

Fun, i think atm the 300i is the best ship out of the 3 available.
Posted By: Bandit

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 06/05/14 12:07 PM

Played for about two hours yesterday in the 300i. The 300i's HUD is way better than the other 2 ships available. The damage system is really cool as I made it to round 10 in vandul swarm with half a ship left. Also, if you have missile lock and they are around 100 meters away don't shoot you will blow up. Also I wish strafe would work because it is very hard to avoid lasers and missiles.

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 06/05/14 12:54 PM

Sadly I only own larger ships and they gave me a stock hornet and 300i, no missiles =( Very frustrating.

The hornet is a beast though, I have to say.

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 06/05/14 03:30 PM

I got all 3 and the 300i does have missiles but the only way I've notice to fire is click the middle mouse wheel to start the lock on process, once locked on click it again to fire. Same with the hornet.

Go to your holotable and select the ship and modify the parts with what you have. You will have to disassemble a ship you own or buy and extra weapon. Just make sure it's a part that will work.

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 06/06/14 01:36 PM

got to first person view after you have turned it on and walk back wards till you can see it all

Hold the TAB key down to use the mouse then its just click oand drag

first select ship drag to centre then on tghe band above move to weapons then drag in the weapons to the weapon slots
you may need to do the reverse to existing ships to give you extra weapons

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 07/07/14 08:41 PM

If you citizen number is under 200,000 check your email for Multi-Player invites. Still can't set up matches or queue with your Org/friends. CR said they are working on that for a later patch that won't be that far off. Right now the Multiplayer is just a rack, pack and stuff you into a match with other players. I think the limit is 6 or 8 in a match right now.

CR is also talking to the IP owner of "Voice Attack" to either out right purchase it and hire the core dev team or pay to license it and be the first with a Voice Attack Dev Kit.

Also what does everyone use for controls, key/mouse or some other form? Just curious.
Posted By: Brommas

Re: Dog Fighting Module Access - 07/09/14 01:45 AM

Ive found out of the 3 control types I have (saitek x52 hotas, Xbox controller, and keyboard mouse) that the gamepad works the best for me. I like some parts of my X52 better but when it comes to precision the X52 kinda sucks. Im sure other flight sticks would do better. Im looking into getting a CH fighter stick and throttle and then possibly adding pedals later.


I have heard the X52 has a magnet kit for better precision but atm the Xbox controller > all for me

When you launch arena commander one option is multiplayer and one is AI mode.

There were discussing possible joystick being made specifically for star citizen, might be worth waiting closer to launch.

That's odd as soon as the menu boots up the left option is multiplayer and the right option is AI simulation. Then you choose one of the 2 maps.

You can thank Chris for that. This is one of the bigger debates going on right now and honestly if by live PU the flight sticks are still gimped and SC is an arcade flyer there are going to be a lot of pissed off citizens.

You can't scream "IMMERSION" at every turn and then with one of the core game aspects decide that the previous statement doesn't apply to the greatest piece of "IMMERSION" this game has.......The PERIPHERALS.

Frankly, CR wants to be able to use OR and a game controller with voice command because it fits what he likes. So get ready for this topic to be a constant point of friction just as much as the PvP vs PVE slider and instancing conversation.

Personally I am disappointed in there lack of focus on flight controls with regards to flight sticks. It is so bad that the community actually has released there own profiles for the core flight sticks like the x-52 and the Warthog.

fitted an additional drive this time a new solid state Hard

had to lose my cd-drive to do it but it has halved my loading time to the hanger and for the first time I am staying connected to play the multiplayer.

so far my only tips are
if something bleeps drop a flare
use missiles below 500m so they don't have time to use flares

Made it to wave 13 today also in the Hornet. Redoing some voice commands but I actually ran out of ammo twice fighting and couldn't do anymore, in part due to damage and expenditure of ammo. Collided into "The Priest" the 1st death.

It's basically all I do as well every time they come out with a new build. It's honestly become my own personal bench test because the AI scenario remains a constant as the code changes.

At some point in the near future, the 6dof build should be implemented and we can actually start to see who is going to win the internal discussion of flight mechanics.

Not really interested too much in a whole flight setup. A decent joystick should be good enough. Especially with the voice attack software adjusting for some actions.

That is one of the open issues with the current builds. It's really only 4DoF right now and the torsion twist most flight sticks worth a spit have, aren't incorporated yet. Basically the DFM is a giant "yaw & Pew Pew" fest right now where you are better off being a turtle turret then trying to actually dog fight. They will get there at some point, but for right now the DFM is largely eye candy and the future test bed for ship implementation, balancing, scalability and netcode/hit detection.
