A poem full of in-jokes about the latest development news of the Whitest game ever. Doesn't get Whiter than this. It's not ChatGPT garbage either, it's actually good. You need galaxy brain to grasp even half of what he's saying.

Got to be following development very closely to get all the references: https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/co ... mas_to_all

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Verse,

The servers' framerates were far from the worst.

Most citizens were floating around quietly dreaming,

Of the days when Dynamic Meshing would combine with Entity Streaming,

And 3.22, surprisingly, allowed them to build bases,

Though no ship munching postponed most salvage use cases.

And I in my 'Claimer, and Mama in her Vulture,

Enjoyed ship disintegration as spacefolk of culture.

When outside my fuselage there came such a roar,

That my fingers quickly twitched towards Alt and F4.

Away to the helm, I flew towards the sound,

Afraid that some bounty hunter might be coming round.

The glow of Microtech, covered in terrafail snow,

Gave the luster of mid-day to New Babbage below;

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a cherry red Cyclone, led by eight Tumbril Rangeers,

With a little old rider, and I realized with a grin,

Chris Roberts was ending the year with another ship skin.

More rapid than Spirits his coursers they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name:

"Now JLee! Now Coons! Now Brewer and Herman,

"On! Disco! On Zurovec! On Witkin and Nolan!

"Squadron 42 is feature complete, so let's polish to a shine!

"When they ask what you did, tell them 'I HELD THE LINE!'"

As Talons and Hawks out of atmosphere fly,

When they meet with an Idris, or flee San'tok.yāi;

So down from Port Tressler, the coursers they flew,

With the hold full of toys‍—‌and ol' Christopher too:

And then in a twinkling, I heard 'bove the keel.

The revving and spinning of each motorbikes' wheel.

The audio team had not implemented the sound,

Of ol' Chris leaping down the turret with a bound:

He was dress'd all in black, from his head to his foot,

As though his clothes were tarnish'd by ashes and soot;

A bundle of toys was flung on his back,

And he look'd like a peddler just opening his pack:

His eyes‍—‌how they twinkled, to some unheard melody,

His cheeks were like roses, of the highest FIDELITY;

His droll little mouth was drawn up in a smirk,

And his hands were a'flying like they did all the work;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his lips,

The smoke shrouded his head... and my head... and my ship's.

A wink of his eye and a swish of his hair

Soon gave me to know I had no need to be scared.

He spoke not a word. To his work he went, swift,

Depositing a Roadmap Roundup, as a last parting gift

And stretching his arms in a dramatic T-pose,

And giving a nod, up the turret he rose.

He sprung to the Cyclone, ready to keep going,

He punched in coordinates, quantum drive glowing:

And the Comms crackled to life, ere he flew out of sight‍—‌

"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night."


Merry Christmas to all gamers! And especially the smart ones, who play Insomnia-approved games like Star Citizen.

I am going to play some now, if my Shadow stops acting up. I managed to log in from the bar at St Christopher's Inn in Barcelona, but the damn cursor won't show up, so I can't really play. Trying to reinstall USB drivers to resolve this. Had this issue on Saturday too but I managed to fix it.

They explain that with the Idris you can recreate scenes from the best sci-fi movies such as Alien or RoboCop.

So yes, it is $1,000+, but when you look at what your money is buying you, it's a damn bargain. Indeed, the only better deal in gaming is... a castle in my game.

In both cases though you can't just play with this stuff if you're the typical loner gamer. You need a full crew of humans who will heed your commands to fly the Idris, and you need to be a master strategy player to administer the castles and kingdoms in my game.

For everyone else there's $50 Steam Boy Color programmer games loaded with Artificial Stupidity algorithms and invisible walls every way you turn.
