I addressed that chart here:How true is this?
Something to add is that it discounts any work they've done to the engine side (which is the majority of their work). They're also working on SQ42. That chart only picks on content facts when the majority of their work is engine development. The ships are as far along as they are because they have most of the technology down that they need to at least model and implement them in a flight ready way.That's why that pie chart shown earlier selectively picks facts to fit a particular viewpoint. It also over states how long they've had dedicated teams. They didn't even really get started until early spring 2013 and even then it was a pretty small team. They only reached their current size about 18 months ago.
They have been doing some content to keep the Alpha sandbox going. Most of the content they've been working on hasn't been shown. And more will come online as the engine matures since they've ironed out their content creation tools and pipelines.
