This Week in Star Citizen
September 21, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

Origin’s 890 Jump went up in flames against the Anvil Valkyrie, but that’s the way it goes at the Ship Showdown – only one can win.

Today, the SEMI-FINALS kick off with an exciting duel between the Anvil Carrack and Aegis Eclipse. Can a ship as versatile as the Carrack resist an ambush attack by the Eclipse? You decide, as your vote is all that counts!
Be sure to check in every day to support your favorite and decide which will be this year’s champion.

Not sure which of the last four ships you should vote for? No problem, the Free Fly is still running! Jump into the ‘verse to test the 16 ships that our community voted into Phase two of Ship Showdown until Wednesday. At the same time, why not participate in our Fly Like a Pirate screenshot contest?
And if you’re more of a hands-on crew member, check out our Virtual Cosplay Contest!

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

This Monday, we’ll publish the Alpha 3.10 Postmortem, offering our high-level thoughts on what went well, what didn’t, and what we learned for next time.

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team starts a new Serialized Fiction series with the first part of Drifter.

On Wednesday, keep your eyes on Spectrum as we take another step on the road to Alpha 3.11 and talk about incoming improvements to countermeasures and missiles.

This Thursday, Inside Star Citizen is back with a new episode; this time taking a return trip to the cargo decks and a look at everything coming in Alpha 3.11 in the Patch Report!

Finally, on Friday, you’ll see a Roadmap Update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, the RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox, and the latest issue of Jump Point. Last but not least, we welcome a new episode of Calling All Devs to our YouTube Channel, where we’ll be talking ship features.

Have a great week, everyone!

Weekly Wisdom: Heavy is just right

You don't always need a Pembroke environment suite to withstand the extreme heat of inhospitable high-temperature planets.
However, take a closer look at the stats of different undersuits and armor, as some provide sweet bonuses.
The ADP Core heavy armor, for example, protects you between -75 °C and +105 °C, so you won't break a sweat during a leisurely trip to Daymar.

Community MVP: September 21, 2020

We're constantly amazed at the contributions made by the Star Citizen community. Whether it's fan art, a cinematic, 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 the chance to see it here!

Microtech Art Pc office (work in progress) by COMMANDER-Fran

This week’s MVP goes to COMMANDER-Fran, who brought the elegance (and hopefully not the temperatures) of microTech to his home. CMDR Fran, we hope you can also upgrade your office with a Big Benny’s vending machine!

Check out his cool office (WIP) on the Community Hub
