    Hey folks!

    I've been poking my head in and checking the website every couple of years, but now I figured I'd at least login and say hi!


    Long story short - I joined the UFP waaaaaay back in 2002 as "ExtremeGoku" (I know, right?). We played a lot of Bridge Commander and Elite Force... It was glorious. lol

    I was an extremely active member for a number of years until life took control and I couldn't keep it up. I came back in 2009 as a retired admiral under the new name "Riker" for a little while, but that didn't last long unfortunately. I had way too much going on irl.


    Fast forward to now -
    I'm a Game Designer working on Star Citizen and Squadron 42. I put a lot of the reasoning for getting to where I have down to the work I did in the UFP and the skills I learned along the way. Don't let your dreams be dreams! Big Grin


    Now that's out of the way, I noticed you guys have an org setup in Star Citizen so I figured I'd see how you might feel about getting together for some games some time?
    Dev's aren't officially allowed to join orgs, but I'd be happy to spawn in any ship you might want to play around in Smile

    My RSI account is - https://robertsspaceindustries.com/citizens/DANB-CIG
    Feel free to add me as a friend.


    See you around the verse!

    Wow, a Game Designer for Star Citizen? That is amazing!

    I haven't touched SC in a while though. My current PC spec just isn't up to it. But it is my primary motivation for an upgrade, suffice to say.

    Also, I too was one of those younglings who being unfamiliar with the Internet, used the name of their favorite Dragonball Z character to create their first account. :p Though in my case it was for an e-mail address.

    Yeah it's pretty system intensive! We're making a game for the future after all Wink We're also putting an insane amount of effort and resources into optimisation right now (object container streaming being the big one).


    Haha it could be worse... I could not like Dragonball Z anymore!

    Game designer in Star Citizen? Congratulations to you, good sir.

    I personally don't own the game or play it - perhaps some day I'll give a shot!

    Nice of you to drop by though, always good to hear from veterans of the community and hopefully you consider joining UFP as a general member again.

    Hey very cool!

    I've heard some rumblings about SC recently and it's piqued interest in me a little bit Smile

    Interesting job you have there sir. Smile

    I have an SC account but I haven't touched the game in ages, i think the last time I touched it, there was the flight tutorial where you took off from inside an asteroid.

    Good to see you popping in.

    Thanks! Smile


    i think the last time I touched it, there was the flight tutorial where you took off from inside an asteroid.
    Yeah that was removed quite a while ago... The flight system has been going through so many iterations that it wasn't worth keeping the tutorial up-to-date, so it was taken out instead. Take it from me though, the new flight model coming in with IFCS 2.0 is so good and the performance improvements coming in soon with Object Container Streaming are turning it into a game that's really worth playing.

    For anyone that's interested, we're showing off some pretty awesome things tomorrow for CitizenCon https://robertsspaceindustries.com/citizencon

    It'll be well worth it for space fans Wink
