This Week in Star Citizen
October 12, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

Last week, Star Citizen Alpha 3.11 – High Impact hit the live servers and thousands of citizens are currently experiencing force reactions, the Origin 100i, Green Zone removal, and more!

We also launched a ton of exciting events and updates to celebrate Star Citizen’s birthday. So if you need to catch up, check out the Star Citizen Birthday Comm-Link for your convenience.

You can also read Chris Roberts’ latest Letter from the Chairman, check out the most recent update on Squadron 42 with the first episode of our quarterly show The Briefing Room, and participate in our Day of the Vara contests and events.

And last but certainly not least, we launched the 2950 UEE Imperator Election. Cast your vote before October 25, 6:59 am UTC, and help shape the future of our universe!

Thank you for all the kind birthday wishes and your ongoing support.

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team will publish a Portfolio about the Advocacy’s elite interdiction unit – Bronson’s Bolts.
October 13 is also be the last day to register for the community-organized event Hurston Hurt Locker, so check it out and fight for glory.

On Wednesday, we’ll bring you not only the Monthly Subscriber Update (including some especially awesome content) but also the Squadron 42 Monthly Report reposted as a comm-link.

Keep in mind that there will be no ISC this Thursday as the team continues their hiatus.

Star Citizen Live kicks off on Twitch this Friday at 8:30 am Pacific (3:30 pm UTC), featuring Star Citizen Live Director Todd Papy, Core Gameplay Director Richard Tyrer, and Lead Designer Luke Pressley to talk everything 3.11.

As usual, you’ll also catch our weekly Roadmap Update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered straight to your inbox.

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

PS: Vote Titus Costigan for Imperator!

Zyloh’s Edit: No, vote for Addison!

Weekly Wisdom: Vanduul Helmet FAQ

We have seen some questions pop up on how exactly you earn the Vanduul helmet released in Alpha 3.11. We recently made a number of changes so have created a handy FAQ to help you out.

Check out the Spectrum Vanduul Helmet FAQ Thread for all there is to know. If you can’t find the answer to your question, just drop it in as a reply. Also, please stay fair and treat your fellow citizens with respect in-chat. Even if you blast them to dust in your hunt for the unique helmet, we’re all gamers and share our love for Star Citizen.

Community MVP: October 12, 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!

Laika – This New Ocean Music Video Teaser by The Peoples Radio

A big shout-out to my favorite radio station, ‘The Peoples Radio of Levski’ and their amazing new music video. Their Twitch-Channel – sorry, COM Channel 1337 – will be back online next year, but for now, I highly recommend checking out their YouTube playlist with their unique in-fiction ad blocks!
