Every 3 years I like to see where SC development is up to.
I can’t wait for my grandchildren to play this.
Chad Reno
Chad Reno:
Elite Dangerous is slated to have boots on the ground missions this year, SC needs to focus and polish this game. It has so much potential.
remember when there was PO, Tessa, Covalex, Kareah and the repair station only?
As someone who has only heard the name with 1-2 short videos about here and there, this vid is perfectly for people who really wanna get infos about the game :D

Star citizen with their “car ship commercials” really entice me into buying it😂🤣
This reminds me of how lonely I am, I’ve been looking for a group to play with for like three months now, and still haven’t found anyone. Lonely gang?

Demetri Parker:
Starcitizen in 2021 is another round of funding, asking YOU for more money. Nothing new, usual stuff
Cant wait for my great great grand kids to play the BETA game, im 34
Star Citizen in 2021? Yet another year of waiting and people in denial over the fact that this is a game in severe development hell and most likely will never see release.
I am 5 minutes into the video and I have to say that the production quality is amazing so far. Great job.

This is like cyberpunk but mixed with elite dangerous
this video got me to sub to you ,
I love the silence of Space except the hum and beeps of the ship. Didn't see anything wrong with that landing that went sideways.
Good vid, makes me want to go and explore some more.

Good viddy, this is the one I'll show my friends to help them see SC neutrally.

I'll wager the answer is, "Still unfinished"
Had a blast playing with you and friends on stream. That Idris mission was fun.
Always got to watch these for the excellent footage.

2:00 them horse teeth tho ... muahahahahaha
i upvoted other for the video content for the voice soo dep i love it
Thank you for that video. Thats the perfect advertisement to show my friends if they ask me how Star Citizen is like. Great work.
imo they should make the practice modes a free tech demo to test the game on your rig. im pretty interested in the game but i dont really want to throw money at something that might not be for me right now

Nice work mate. An honest appraisal. You could give box missions a little more love though as they are a great way to see the sights of Stanton while earning a little dosh. ( a little more would be appreciated though :) )

Great video! Very informative and well made. Thank you! :)
I wasn't really hype by this video at first. But after seeing it, I must say.. It's perfect.
I will definitly keep this video in a corner of my favorite, to show it to a friend if he need an introduction to SC.
Thanks, Happy new years and continue what your doing.

Any chance getting a mission giver episode to see where they all lead? new to the channel enjoying the content :)
This is a super solid layout of SC right now. Great guide for new pilots looking for direction! Cause, you know, there's no intro tutorials, haha.
Can't run the game on my computer, but I love the game so I went ahead and bought it to support it!
Nice one tomato!

I'd love to play this game I've been watching it for few years now (n started watching few of your vids) but right now I'm waiting to get my pc together lol when I do I'm very much going to get this so I'm super excited when I can play on my free time.
Super smooth content, man. Keep it up. See you in ten years 😆

whoaa this video show incredible picture ! and all of that for 45$, I ll be in !
Thanks for the video! I play Elite and wondering, are ships and weapons in SC customizable or just hard set, you get what you get? I am used to picking between different modules like weapons of PA's, Rails, MCs, Mines, Torps, etc., adding Heatsinks and or SCBs, hull and module reinforcements, shields, and on and on, in ED. This game anything like that? Thanks!

Good work Tomato, outstanding as always. A video I will use as a general opener to S.C. talks with friends in the future. That and the constant stream of debates we get into over in discord. Great to have some solid well spoken data.

Solve Everything
Solve Everything:
First of all : thanks for a nice video. I agree with pretty much everything everything you said in this video, including that the game isn't for newcomers (I have not installed the game but analyzed their finished (and intended) implementation designs from what can be found on the public web.

As a mathematician I am impressed that they managed to implement a proper network culling for the container streaming. This is a highly difficult and daunting challenge even from a strict computer science perspective.
This means they would have to do the following:
- stream asynchronous higher order meta-data over a p2p network while
- SIMULTANEOUSLY making sure the mapping (geometric redistribution and locomotion) stays consistent on multiple interconnected clients.
- recursively synchronize content of each container to other players in a p2p fashion.
- Not get intimidated and give up prematurely on implementing this. (I hear it took 18 months to implement just the first prototype).

"So what?" you may ask. Well, this might explain why there are so few games that let you "go into vehicles" inside vehicles inside vehicles and so on in multiplayer. The complexity of implementing all this is simply just too overwhelming in the most generalized case.

I am also looking forward to see how they will handle the caching to put more players on the map. It shouldn't be so hard to expand if the container streaming algorithm itself works between a smaller number of players. Just let a few players bodies "freeze" when they are too far away? no?

Either way and forgive me for the rant, but hopefully the gamers worldwide will be more humble towards the actual challenge behind the implementation of this itself. Don't be too harsh on the developers if they "work too slow" and not deliver on time. If they actually manage to pull off the so called "Server meshing" then it will be a true spectacle in gaming. For reference: See EVE online 5000 player battle and imagine all of them having "first person view" turned on.

This is extremely well made; I don't even play SC but now I might...
I'm 76, time is not on my side to see the finished game, I'm more likely to see a man walk on mars, or fusion powered electricity generation.

must admit I ended up getting a C2 just because I liked hauling in ATS or ETS2

I haven’t played in months. It’s really repetitive and buggy last I played. Maybe it’s better now I hope

I just can't get over the obvious fps drops (can't believe I'm that guy now) I would like at least a stable 30 to 60 fps before jumping in
Commenting to boost your channel recommendations ^^

Gary O'Connor:
great video as always.. nice overview of the game.. can't wait until it's persistent (no wipes). then i'll be able to put some proper time into it.
Enjoyed your talk on Fix My Fleet.
As always another great video 👍 Happy New Year to you and I look forward to more of your videos

Well, as soon as SQ42 will release, I will jump on this train. Right now I observe from a distance and hope.

Mr. Space Tomato, where I can read detailed information about physics patterns this game. If it does even exist. Thank you.
Solid guide mate, nice one.
have you done video of missing features like salvage, player ran economy and crafting for excamples?
Winston Broach
Winston Broach:
I noticed I basically use all 16GB of my RAM during gameplay so I ordered a 32GB kit, maybe not Maxing my RAM will help with some stuff we'll see 😁

Swedish Latino:
Dude the quality of this video is mindblowing for such a smaller channel. 100% liked and subbed man keep em coming cheers

ps i can definitely see some chapters are inspired by Mass Effect :D
unless they're planning a full release this year, the definitive space sim of 2021 is anything but Star Citizen.
Nice video man, it deserves more views. That being said motion blurr on at 15fps makes me want to tear my eyes out : ) , maybe we can get u a 3080 some how. Thanks for the video.
Very well done. Thank you.

Happy New Year! Thanks for the great video.
I wish I could like this video several times.

As far as i know no function in the game has ever been cut. Most havent popped up yet because they were scaled up taking more time.
"50 players per server is a poultry amount"....... hahahahahahaha
Love the content man. Great stuff.

Excellent Delivered, mate o7
One feature I want is clothes physics that would be awesome. If rdr2 can do it then this game can too
Jaume Sabater
Jaume Sabater:
Good video, SpaceTomato. One thing I think is missing is FPS combat, both on ground and in space. Having a couple of Cutlass Red ships around, you can set up your own scenarios with friends divided into to parties. Keep up the good work and happy new year!
Have you thought about doing voice over / narration work?
PC Cop
PC Cop:
I just logged in after months of not playing and was very disappointed on how choppy the frame rate is, could not play it. An unplayable slide show
Okay I think I’m ready to play now
I bought into Star Citizen from early on. I have never flown a ship. I am really in this for Squadron 42, but who knows when we will see that.
I think I would only be frustrated with the experience of something looking so good, but so far from whatever would be considered feature complete.
However, recently I have been thinking about getting in a ship and touring the verse.
Rocco Fitel
Rocco Fitel:
So Star Citizen is infact a life simulator. Or at least this is the grand approximation it is heading towards.
Dave Wills
Dave Wills:
I started playing this concept last Sep, i fell hook line and sinker from the get go. T experience for the 1st time, standing alone on a gorgeous wind swept planet, your ship big or small, waiting to take you anywhere in the system, at a moments notice, a ship able to ascend, descend through atmospheres, experience the difference gravity can have as you traverse these alien worlds, you and your ship as one, not just in the feel of inertia, but to actually hear the engines kick down and blast dust as you abruptly bring this sometimes massive behemoth in to land, these and many more unique experiences await you
in SC, even earning a living within SC can be so rewarding and worthwhile, you have choice in nearly every aspect of your journey, its like any learning process, there is always scope to grow and learn.
But for me, until CIG fix this broken thing, my heart is just not in it anymore, it can become a disheartening, fragmented grind, always one step forward and two steps back.

This video is massively well done mate, there is a lot of great introduction videos out there, and this one is a fine addition to the collection already available, with the plus of being the most up to date in the subject. I really hope many people can see and get to know the game, great thing also that you talked about the buggy state, and how it requires good hardware to play well, something that must be further pointed out to avoid a frustrating first experience, or make it less of a annoyance. Keep it up mate, love watching your videos, like, 100% of the video. Now let's wait for the next game introduction from you one year from now hehehe.
lol, I make about $250k an hour on Covalex missions using the Banu Defender.
Let's start with the most important part - film in 4K - :) teasing but sayin - love your work BTW (recent suber)
just admit it, this game is still a big scam periot! xD

btw, the facial expression is just creepy
Fantastic intro to Star Citizen. Man.. jealous of your editing and production skills!!
Wellcome to Covalex shipping hub
