This Week in Star Citizen
March 27th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

Greetings Citizens!

Over the weekend, we invited wave three and four to the PTU to help us test Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.2. We’ve been receiving a lot of great feedback and Issue Council reports as we move closer to the imminent release to Live.

So, what’s going on this week?

Today’s Citizens of the Stars episode features community video-maker Athagen as our Citizen Spotlight guest, and QA Tester Andrew Hernando is in the hotseat for another installment of Quantum Questions.

Subscriber’s Town Hall is back this Tuesday! This time, Turbulent sits down to talk about Spectrum, the launcher, and more. We don’t get enough opportunities to highlight the amazing contributions Turbulent provides, and are excited about the chance for them to answer your questions.

On Wednesday, Senior Gameplay Engineer Mark Abent tackles a game crash in Spectator mode for our bi-weekly show, Bugmashers! If you’re into the nitty gritty of game development, this show will be right up your alley.

Thursday’s episode of Around the ‘Verse visits our Frankfurt Studio with Brian Chambers. This show continues to be one of the hottest sources for the latest news about Star Citizen’s development, and this week is no different.

Wrapping up the week is Happy Hour Museum. Our very own Ben Lesnick is dusting off the cobwebs on Wing Commander: Privateer! These streams are a great opportunity to learn more about the history of the games that make up Star Citizen’s DNA.

With that, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse.

Community Spotlight: March 27th, 2017 – Desktop Citizen

The amount of contributions we see submitted to the Community Hub and Forums on a daily basis continues to amaze us. Last week, we showed off some of the amazing things you are building; this week the theme is “Desktop Citizen,” highlighting cool wallpapers that you have created using concept art and in-game screenshots! Below you will find a few that the developers have as their desktop backgrounds in the office. Don’t forget to check the Community Hub for more and upvote your favorites. You just might see them here in the near future.

Doom_Bringer has managed to capture an epic shot filled with vibrant colors. I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but this image immediately found a new home on my desktop.


IggyPi shares a screenshot highlighting the beautiful vista found outside of Astro Armada. You can’t help but stop, and stare out into the distance.


Archeangel_666 has taken a screenshot that surely makes all 350R pilots proud!


Oni-Ni-Kanabo captured dozens of images that truly called to the inner-pirate in me. Make sure to check out the full album here.
