Get a head start on navigating Lorville at Hurston.

What you are seeing is a player who has accepted a COMM from another player, which shows their real-time avatar on the viewscreen.  As the ship that they are both fighting explodes, you can see the light from that explosion happening across the COMMed player in real time (plus server/game transmit time).  With FOIP you can also see the player's face move, including lips, eyebrows and blinking.  This is Star Citizen.

As is a series now, here is Aleksandr Belov's comparison video.  Superb and painstaking.

Will my rig handle the streaming of Star Citizen?  I think it'll be just about okay.  Quick peek at what I've been doing over the last couple of days.

Seem's Chief's Letter is turning into 'Chief's Note'.  Perhaps that's why it arrives early? - Fewer data to transmit.  How ya'll doing?  What sort of frames are you getting at the moment and is trade pretty decent too?  They made some more changes to ESP; have you noticed dogfighting to be more responsive with aiming?

I've decided to set up an MFD, real-world, for a future release.  So I can do all those various ship related actions from it instead of fiddling with tons of keybinds on my controller.   Something like the Stream Deck.  A citizen produced this recently (pictured below) that should really help.

The WoW expansion is here in 2 weeks ad will keep me entertained for some months.  It will certainly put the streaming tests through their paces ready for SC.  Does anyone have knowledge about the next gen of GPU and when we can expect the 1080s to fall in price?  Hoping next year is going to be pretty dang awesome!

Thought I'd cut this as one showing from the CitizenCon for people as it is gorgeous.  This is what we can expect to see in some places of our universe for us to explore and wonder at.

For some of the best of the 'Con, I recommend the video below.  3 sections of the live stream with quality, non-intrusive commentary from the YouTuber, Morphologis.

The keynote: this is what we are all getting in just a few weeks when 335 hits.  Soon after that, Arcorp with Area 18 and moons for Xmas.  Pretty cool.  Afterwards, we see what changes are coming to 34's flight systems - this is HUGE; I can not wait to see how important it is going to be to have a co-pilot or engineer in your crew.  Finally, we see how CIG made Hurston.  ...need I say more?
