This video highlights the top 10 anticipated features in Star Citizen for 2022 and beyond, based on the game’s roadmap. These features include solar bursts, destructible environments, 0G push and pull mechanics, AI planetary navigation, physical damage and breakability, quantum travel improvements, salvage gameplay, resource management systems, map and radar system reworks, and a cargo system refactor.
This video presents a list of the top 10 anticipated features in Star Citizen for 2022 and beyond. The creator mentions that the listed features are based on their existence on the roadmap and are not yet in the alpha version of the game. The video excludes certain critical features related to server missions and quantum simulation optimization.
The first feature on the list is solar bursts, which are dangerous natural disasters that occur around older stars like Pyro. The video illustrates how these events could create intense gameplay moments, such as deciding whether to hide behind an asteroid or rush back to one’s ship for protection.
The second feature is destructible environments, which would allow individual elements like foliage to be destroyed. The video suggests that this could enhance the immersion and realism of explosions, potentially leading to future implementations such as terrain deformation or destructible buildings.
The video then discusses the 0G push and pull mechanics, allowing players to traverse surfaces in zero gravity by using their hands for propulsion. This feature could add depth to gameplay scenarios where players must conserve their suits’ fuel or face dire circumstances.
The fourth feature mentioned is AI planetary navigation, which involves NPCs moving on planetary surfaces using dynamically generated navigation meshes. This could lead to NPCs guarding outposts or other locations, potentially creating more engaging gameplay experiences.
The fifth feature is physical damage and breakability, utilizing the game’s physics engine to realistically depict the damage inflicted on large objects like ships. While the details of this feature were not entirely clear, it is suggested that it could change the way ships look and behave upon destruction or collisions.
The video goes on to mention additional features like quantum travel experience improvements, salvage gameplay, resource management systems, map and radar system reworks, and a cargo system refactor. The creator expresses excitement about the potential for engaging piracy gameplay and an improved economy.
The video concludes with the creator emphasizing the need for constructive criticism within the Star Citizen community, acknowledging the project’s challenges while appreciating the effort of the developers. The creator expresses gratitude for the existence of the game and looks forward to its future developments.
