This Week in Star Citizen
June 26th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

Greetings Citizens,

Last Friday, we introduced you to the Nox. This speedy Xi’an space bike is ideal for everything from open-canopy races to cruising across the moons of Crusader. Many of you have expressed how much you enjoy the design, and we couldn’t be happier to hear that! If you haven’t already checked it out, embrace true speed here before it’s too late.

Earlier today, we released a new episode Citizens of the Stars, our weekly show dedicated to highlighting the amazing creations by our passionate backers. Special Guests this week is SteveCC who has created a really cool text based cargo simulator to play alongside while in Star Citizen Alpha. After that, Senior Producer Rickey Jutley challenges Brian Chambers for Quantum Champion!

On Tuesday, the June Subscriber’s Town Hall will be about character tech! We welcome Technical Director of Content Sean Tracy, Technical Artist Gaige Hallman and Character Artist Omar Aweidah to the show where they’ll be discussing the tech involved in creating characters for the Star Citizen universe, including their work on the upcoming Star Citizen Alpha 3.0! Make sure to tune in on our Twitch channel or YouTube channel at Noon PDT/7 PM UTC to join the discussion.

Also on Tuesday the Lore Team gives us another rich and interesting look at the history in Star Citizen. These posts are rewarding and a joy to read as they help build the history and life of our universe.

Then on Wednesday, our beloved Senior Gameplay Engineer Mark Abent hosts another installment of “Bugsmashers!”, the unique show that intends to reveal one of the critical roles involved with building a video game, smashing bugs.

On Thursday, Around the Verse returns with an update from Jake Ross (ATX Studio) and Benoit Beausejour (Turbulent)!

Lastly, Friday we’re excited to kick back and relax with an old-school broadcast for with you all, so get ready for Happy Hour Community. Beginning at 12pm PDT, you can join Ben Lesnick, Jared Huckaby, Tyler Witkin and myself as we discuss all the hot topics of the week LIVE with you in chat.

See you in the ‘Verse!

Community Spotlight: June 19TH, 2017 – 3D Print Citizen

This week’s theme is “3D Print Citizen.” I love 3D Print models and these following submissions show off some of the awesome creativity and hard work from the community. Don’t forget to submit your content to our Community Hub for a chance at seeing it here!

X2-Manta Concept by Chmee

Chmee designed this custom mod called X-2 Manta and it looks so sweet. So much in fact that engineering students decided to 3D print the model for their final CAD project. I very much appreciate the attention to detail in the design, and looking forward to more progress on the 3D print.

Video of the project can be found here

Aegis Reclaimer by Ungineer

Now I know that Ungineer’s model has gotten a lot of attention in the past, but it was so good that I couldn’t ignore it in this theme! It’s currently enjoying a permanent home in the ATX Studio where everyone there can enjoy the amount of work placed into it.

Behring P4-SC Rifle by RiceMaiden

This full-size Behring P4-SC Rifle looks fantastic! Another beautiful piece of work by RiceMaiden that we enjoyed very much. We hope that you will print more in the future!
