Happy Monday, everyone!
Last week, after two weeks of mayhem, the Ship Showdown 2950 champion was crowned. It was a close call between the Carrack, Valkyrie, Eclipse, and Cutlass Black, but ultimately Anvil’s mighty explorer came out on top. Congratulations Carrack! And remember, owners of the four ships that made it to the semi-finals will receive a free limited-edition ship livery and themed shirt for their character that will be revealed during IAE in November.
Also last week, we brought the quarterly season of Inside Star Citizen to a close. In the last episode before the three-week hiatus, we took one last look at the additions and changes coming to the ‘verse in Alpha 3.11. As the upcoming patch is currently in the hands of our Evocati testers, why not take a look at our Alpha 3.10 Postmortem? What went well, what didn’t, and what did we learn for next time; the postmortem gives you exclusive insight into our feature teams’ thought processes.
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
This Monday, we’ll announce the winners of the Ship Showdown Phase 1 Contest. Ten MISC Prospector with LTI will find a new home. Who will be the lucky winners?
On Tuesday, things heat up as the Narrative Team treats us to the final Imperator’s Election candidate debate.
On Wednesday, keep your good eye on Spectrum mateys, as we announce the winners of the Fly Like a Pirate Screenshot Contest that ended this weekend. Y’arrr!
And finally, on Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the RSI Newsletter will wait for you in your inbox. We’ll also welcome a new episode of Star Citizen Live, which will broadcast on our Star Citizen Twitch channel at 9am Pacific / 4pm UTC. Principal Environment Artist Patrick Gladys will join us for a Gamedev episode, exploring the use of height maps to create terrain features.
Have a great week, everyone!
