This Week in Star Citizen
April 9th, 2018


I’d like to start this week’s blog post by thanking everyone, who shared their feedback in regards to our Alpha 3.1 release. With your help, we released a new client patch by the end of last week, implementing sought-after changes to insurance timers and the expedite fees. More info and the complete patch notes can be found here. Keep sharing your experience from the ‘Verse and let us know what you think in our feedback forum on Spectrum!

In the wake of last month’s backer survey, we also reworked our Roadmap. We condensed all mining-related tasks for 3.2 into one card, moved Salvaging, Refuel & Repair to 3.3, and added the top survey results for the upcoming release. While focusing on quality of life improvements and performance, we will continue to rework our roadmap as a living and breathing representation of the development process. So expect to see even more changes in the coming weeks. And if you haven’t yet, make sure to check out our Monthly Studio Report to see what our studios across the globe have been working on!

With that, let’s see what’s going on this week:

We’re kicking off the week with another episode of Calling All Devs today. This time, we discuss explosive decompression, count engines on the Freelancer MAX and talk about having your own apartment in ArcCorp. You can watch the episode here.

On Tuesday, the Lore Team will publish their weekly lore post. Are you looking for full immersion in our universe? Check out previously published lore posts here.

Wednesday: BUGSMASHERS! Mark Abent returns, hammer in hand, ready to smash. Catch the latest episode when it airs on our YouTube channel.

On Thursday, we’ll welcome an all-new episode of Around the Verse with the latest info from the Development team. This original episode is shaping up to be a sophisticated one!

The week will be wrapped up on Friday, with Content Manager Jared Huckaby hosting another episode of Reverse the Verse LIVE. Keep an eye out in the General section of Spectrum for the question gathering post early this week and then tune in on at 9am PDT / 4pm UTC for a special RTV with members of the ship team.

That’s all for this week, citizens. We’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
