Let me just say, Goons have been against Star Citizen ever since they found out they weren’t going to be given carte blanche to grief other players. It has nothing to do with the game itself, just a vocal minority putting the horse before the buggy attempting to throw shade on the project. SA has been campaigning for over a year trying to create a refund cascade to spite CIG.
However on the topic of the last AtV. What I took away from it was AI was coming along very nicely, but part of the reason they haven’t shown it because animation is not up to the standards to leave a good impression of the underlying AI complexity. And considering the flak they get from failed “indie game dev” and a community of petulant children, I’m not surprised they want to put their best foot forward.
