This Week in Star Citizen
May 13th, 2019

Hello everyone,

Last week, we revealed Tumbril’s latest wheeled vehicle, the Ranger. This all-terrain warrior takes the off-road tech from the Cyclone and lets you embrace the renegade spirit of the open road while staying thoroughly grounded. Download the brochure and learn about the qualities of the CV, RC, and TC and post your questions in the Tumbril Ranger Q&A thread. We’ll forward your top-voted questions to the Ranger’s designers and publish a Comm-Link with all the answers.

Last Friday, we sent out an important announcement about CitizenCon 2949: Mark your calendars and keep an eye on the Manchester Central Convention Complex on November 23rd, when we’ll be celebrating the citizens and the stars that make the dream a reality. We’re looking forward to an epic event with the best community. More info coming soon!

Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

Tuesday, the Lore Team publishes a Portfolio piece about Ascension Astro, a stealth component manufacturer that courted controversy.

Thursday welcomes a new episode of Inside Star Citizen, our weekly look inside the world of Star Citizen development. We’ll also see what the teams have been up to during the month of April, as we’ll be publishing the monthly report for the PU. We’re going to give the Squadron 42 Report one additional day to spread the content a bit, so it will be hot on the heels coming Friday.

Friday also sees a Roadmap update and the RSI Newsletter delivered right to your inbox. We also welcome a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which broadcasts on our Star Citizen Channel at 12pm Pacific. This time, we’ll stream in front of a live audience of Subscribers who’ll ask their longstanding questions to Technical Director Sean Tracy, Character Creative Director Josh Herman, and Lead Gameplay Engineer Mark Abent. We’ll also announce the winners of the Anvil Arrow Commercial Contest ending on Wednesday the 15th!

See you in the ‘verse!

Community MVP: MAY 13TH, 2019

We are constantly amazed by the contributions made by the Star Citizen community. Whether it's fan art, a cinematic, a YouTube guide, or even a 3D print of your favorite ship, we love it all! Every week, we select one piece of content submitted to the Community Hub and highlight it here. The highlighted content creator will be awarded an MVP badge on Spectrum and be immortalized in our MVP section of the Hub.

Don’t forget to submit your content to our Community Hub for a chance at seeing it here!

3D printed Javelin by Tengzexin

As if a 1:1000 Idris isn’t impressive enough, Tengzexin took his 3D printing skills to another level with this 1:500 Javelin. Gigantic!
