CHRIS ROBERTS: One thing that would be very cool is letting players go find a spot of land and build their own outpost (OMINOUS MUSICAL CUE.) The concern would be, “okay well I go build my base and I log off… …and some asshole comes and blows up
my base when I’m logged off.” It’s completely the Wild West. You’ve built a base, you log off, it could get attacked… so you’d have to worry about defending
it all the time. but if you went and had an actual “official” land beacon you’re basically protected by them. (A typical Hollywood action movie trailer style soundtrack begins, building tension and excitement) LANDO: “The devastating A2 Hercules
gunship that’s meant to bring the pain down upon anyone and anything in its
path!” VOICE OF GAMERMAX (STAR CITIZEN BACKER AND YOUTUBER): Why? Why would Star Citizen essentially put *atomic bombs* into the game? (GamerMax overestimated the MOAB destructive yield in his hype video – by 1000x – and is theorycrafting a non-existent nuke game.) To destroy a tank? Maybe if you
wanted to destroy *50*! This is your outpost killer, and this is why CIG is charging so much for this ship… and that’s why I bought one! It’s completely the Wild West. VOICE OF GAMERMAX: These are *not* small *bombs! VOICE OF CHRIS ROBERTS: You’ve built a base, you log off, it could get attacked. (Diabolical cackling from GamerMax as he savors the hugely miscalculated destructive potential of the MOAB.) Make sure someone’s not going to troll it. So you’d have to worry about defending it all the time. VOICE OF STL YOUNGBLOOD: If you really need to remove an outpost, that Morningstar (bomb) is probably better. ROBOT VOICE: Like and subscribe! CHRIS ROBERTS: Ahhh, alright! Ugah! Thank you everybody!
