why did I ignore this for so long
this is like, my dream game

the universe is as persistent as EVE

you can walk in the spaceships
fight in the spaceships
launch baby spaceships from the spaceships

you can be watching your carrier floating in space then zoom all the way in to see bob on the bridge playing gmod instead of commanding the fighters

fucking bob

my dick has been erect with hype for a while now
i think i may need help
When you think handsome bounty hunter making his own way in a galaxy of enemies, you think the Constellation. The Constellation, a multi-person freighter, is the most popular ship in RSI’s current production array. Constellations are beloved by smugglers and merchants alike because they are modular, high powered… and just downright iconic-looking. The Constellation includes a manned turret, a large cargo area and a small flight deck capable of launching a snub fighter in its own defense.

So Am I the only one who pledged?

If anyone else pledged we could form some kind of crew for the bigger ships? If interested.

Guys we need the Idris Corvette. I'm currently trying to save money to pledge - but I'm likely to only get a lower one. Still keen to crew up.

I pledged $37, but I reckon I'll be saving up for a Constellation over the next two years. I like the idea of the Millenium Falcon with a flight deck. Of course, it's got a turret and a fighter, so worst case, two of you lot could squeeze in with me. Assuming, of course, you're willing to take the bottom bunks. Man, the idea of exploring the 'verse with a trusty corvette is appealing. Seeing the sights, the spaceports, kicking dicks and stealing ships, staying one jump ahead of the law. And then Brandon would show up in a Bengal carrier, and he'd be all "Ha ha! The Bereavment Advocates have returned to seal your death! Mine is an evil laugh!". And Freurlund would be like "Not today, shitlord!". And he pops out of my Constellation in a lil' fighter, and Brandon goes "Scramble our fighters!". But Fruer dodges them all, and he shoots the crap out of Brandon's maneuvering thrusters, and the Bengal crashes into a moon, and Brandon's all "It looks like the B.A is blasting off again!" and he explodes or some shit, I don't know. Man, did I ever tell you how hyped I am for Star Citizens?

Cosmondico, played on the server a while back, has got a 15 man team already, me and three other friends will most likely join, but would anyone here be interested in joining up and making it a full on Diaspora Organisation? There are already some large groups forming, but we're sitting on 2 Constellations, 3 Hornets, 5 300i's and plenty of Auroras already. So, any takers?

I hope you accept my application, I put a lot of thought into it.

I have never seen a more in promising application in all of my 19 hours as the founder of an organisation. I would have accepted you on the spot, but the accept button seemed to be mysteriously missing.

Strange, it was just fine for Lambda's application.

I've begun making everything fancy and putting words into the boxes, but I have no idea what to do for the Logo and Icon, or what to put in the Manifesto or Charter. Help (and more not-cancelled applications V:) would be appreciated

Ah, I know what the problem is.

People are supposed to be able to join multiple organizations, but it appears that the ability to do so is not present in the current implementation of organizations.

It will be a thing, but it's not yet, and I'm already in another organization(in charge of marketing, no less) so I'll wait for that functionality to be added before I re-apply to diaspora.

EDIT: Also:
Manifesto is basically the goals of the organization
Charter is basically the rules the members should follow
This is the organization I'm in charge of marketing for, and you can see what I've put in those sections.(The manifesto needs a bit of work I feel, but it's alright for now)

i love just how pumped the crowd is about fucking everything

"YEEEEEEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"

*chris roberts flies into asteroid and blows up less than ten seconds out of the hangar*

"WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

that HUD is amazing, though. they got the dude who did the computers and displays in the Iron Man films to do it.

shame we can't do stuff like that with EGP :C

The Star Citizen Beta, the dog fighting module they've called Arena Commander, is live

Provided you've pledged for at least an Aurora you can download it now through the patcher for the hanger module

This is V.8 so there are only the three base ships, Aurora, 300i and Hornet available to be piloted, and it is singleplayer currently, but they plan to make multiplayer available to all by V1
