The studio behind Star Citizen is currently working on the realistic representation of bed linen. This proudly announced in the last blog post for the single player of the space adventure. The project has been continuously developing for over 10 years and has already taken $ 420 million ** via crowdfunding. However, a kind of “complete release” seems to be a long way off. The announcement of pioneering bed physics is by no means the first more or less sensible announcement of the studio, you remember, for example, the apparently fantastic representation of crying eyeballs. At the same time, we only reported the latest content update for Star Citizen at the beginning of the week.
immersion also in sleep
In the blog post for single player mode Squadron 42, Cloud Imperium Games spoke, among other things, about the everyday rhythm of the NPCs. The fact that sleep and the associated rhythm is fundamentally important to simulate authentically human behavior does not sound absurd in itself.
After all, there are numerous games in which NPCs pursue a regular everyday life and accordingly go to bed at some point. For some, however, the message becomes bizarre from the point, where the realistic representation of bed sheets is talked about. Research is currently to be carried out regarding the representation of folding bed sheets, after all, the bed should look accordingly after leaving a character. After getting up, your bed shouldn’t look like a photo from the IKEA catalog .
The question, which is asked, however, is whether this is currently a sensible priority. It is difficult to assess from the outside how the resources at Cloud Imperium Games are distributed. In other words, what exactly could the people who are currently sitting on the wrinkles of bed sheet.
But when we remember again that both Star Citizen and the Squadron 42 single player have been under development for ages, some should leave some with a lot of shaking their heads.
If the game had already been under development on the market or not for over 10 years, the tenor may be much more positive. After all, the things that are technically done here are not wrong. It’s a shame that they arise in the context of such a bizarre and constant development.
