This Week in Star Citizen
January 6th, 2020

Happy New Year!

Looking back on everything we achieved together in 2019, it was quite an eventful year. We brought you patches that introduced new locations like ArcCorp, caves, and microTech, and we welcomed additions such as a personal commodity inventory, FPS mining and a new flight model. Tech-wise, we made leaps forward with the new Projectile Manager, Planet Tech V4, and of course the first iteration of Server-side Object Container Streaming. We’ve implemented a new launcher, introduced an in-game/on-Spectrum Guide System, brought you the Galactapedia, established ship customization with the Origin 300 series, and so much more.

We’ve also seen incredible content from our community on the hub, Twitch, YouTube and of course on stage during the first annual CitizenCon Cosplay Contest. It was wonderful meeting so many of you in person, during GamesCom, CitizenCon, and the BarCitizen meet-ups all around the world.

For 2020, I hope that we all remember how it feels to be a new player, a rookie, and that we keep this in mind as we move into the new year together.

Let’s help each other, have fun exploring the ‘verse together, and solidify our community as the best and most welcoming of all time.

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

On Tuesday, the Lore Team will look at the history behind Chemline Solutions, a major provider of industrial chemicals.

On Wednesday, we’ll announce the winners of both Holiday Contests.

No Inside Star Citizen this Thursday, as the show takes a short break after the release of Alpha 3.8. If you’re craving an update on the development process look no further than:

Friday – You will not only see updates to the Roadmaps, the Subscriber Vault, and have our weekly newsletter in your inbox, but you can also look forward to a new episode of Star Citizen Live. The show will broadcast on our Star Citizen Channel at 11am Pacific/7pm UTC and this week, we’ll sit down with Star Citizen Live Director Todd Papy, talking about the release of our latest patch. Submit your questions for Todd before the show over on Spectrum.

Until next time, we’ll see you in the ‘verse!

Weekly Wisdom: Learn The Ropes

We’ve put together a number of helpful guides and materials to get brand new players started with exploring the universe of Star Citizen.

The Welcome Hub is designed to both get new players started with basic, essential information and, should one so desire a more interactive and person oriented approach to learning, a way to seek out help from a veteran player as a Guide.

Community MVP: JANUARY 6TH, 2020

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!

Dreamwalker, A Pilot’s Journey #4 by Terada

I don't know how he's doing it, but this is quality flying. The latest episode of Terada's breathtaking series features the beautiful scenery of microTech - in a supporting role.
