This Week in Star Citizen
April 10th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

Over the weekend, Several developers from the LA office, including Tyler Witkin, Jared Huckaby, Ben & Alexis Lesnick, Steve Bender, and myself went to a Bar Citizen hosted by some of the LA citizens. It was great to be able to meet some local citizens, and it was my first Bar Citizen since relocating to Los Angeles. I tricked Zyloh into eating a box of M&M’s mixed with Skittles. His reaction was great, but he gave me a terrible, scolding look the rest of the evening.

Let’s see what is going on this week:

Today’s Citizens of the Stars episode has Tyler Witkin introducing Jorunn, a man dedicated to the Bar Citizen movement around the globe. Then, Ben Lesnick puts Dennis Daniel, IT Manager for CIG LA in the hotseat for this week’s Quantum Questions. Learn what kind of machines we play Star Citizen here in the office, and learn the science (or magic?) used in communicating across five studios.

On Wednesday, our bi-weekly show “Bugsmashers!” is back! Bug hunter extraordinaire Mark Abent investigates why some players in Star Marine are able to travel extreme distances in the system after picking up a weapon. I think this is a bug I don’t want Mark to fix!

Thursday’s episode of Around the Verse visits our Manchester Studio, where we pull back the curtains and take a deeper look at Star Citizens development. This is my favorite studio update because of all the new artwork, and in-game footage Erin and the team always show us! Also, make sure to tune in for some exciting news about the Referral Program revamp! New rewards and a competition you won’t want to miss.

Star Citizen Alpha 2.6.2 introduced support for 4K extra-wide resolutions and TrackIR, and on this week’s Happy Hour Showcase, we’re excited to bring both of these to the broadcast. Join Community Manager Jared Huckaby and special guests, Senior Producer Eric Keiron Davis, LA QA Manager Vincent Sinatra, and community broadcaster DeejayKnight as they play Star Citizen live with the fans and answer your questions following Around the Verse the day before. The floor is open to questions this Friday at 12pm Pacific on

See you in the ‘Verse!

Community Spotlight: April 10th, 2017 – Bar Citizen

It’s no secret that the Star Citizen community is the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be! For years, the community has taken it upon themselves to organize regular Bar Citizen events, providing an opportunity for Citizens around the world to meet up, make friends, and talk shop. In our opinion, this level of camaraderie is unparalleled, and we could not be more excited about it.
