This Week in Star Citizen
November 9, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

Hope you had an excellent weekend.

In case you missed it, last week we announced the next Imperator, as chosen by you, Laylani Addison. We also checked out how in-game interactions are fine-tuned and got caught up with a new Sprint Report on ISC, and then took a look at all things Spaceship with a Q&A with the Vehicle Experience Team on SCL.

Touching on the space-elephant in the room, the Mercury Star Runner is in its final stages of internal polishing and is almost ready for you to take it for a spin on the PTU! Keep an eye out for more news on that front very soon.

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

On Tuesday, we’ll be announcing the winners to the 2020 Virtual Cosplay Contest, and the Narrative team will dive into another lore post with a Portfolio on the Battle of Fabela.

Then on Wednesday, you can look forward to the Monthly Subscriber Update.

This Thursday, Inside Star Citizen takes a look at Refining and Weapon Zeroing, two systems coming online in Alpha 3.12.

Friday brings the week to a close with Star Citizen Live! This week is a Gamedev show with the Props Team. What they’re making is under wraps, but word is Pico will be involved. Check out all the fun on Twitch at 9am Pacific / 5pm UTC. Also, you can expect to see our weekly Roadmap update and Roundup, an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox.

Catch ya in the ‘Verse

Molly Joseph
Associate Community Manager

PS: Hey, everyone. More of a personal note here, but I wanted to let you know that next Tuesday is going to be my last day at CIG. I’m leaving to pursue another opportunity, but I wanted to say I’ve had a wonderful time being your community manager. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this community is something really special. I know present circumstances have been keeping us from them lately, but the absolute highlight of my time has been meeting you all at every event and Bar Citizen. No matter the size of the group, the country we’re in, or the language we’re speaking, you can always expect to be treated like family at any event run by the SC community. The wonderful group of devs here at CIG have so many incredible things in store for you all, and I can’t wait to see what you think of everything to come. <3

We’ll have a job posting up later this week to kick off the search for a new community manager, and I’d encourage anyone who thinks they’re up for it to apply and take my job! It’s a hell of a lot of fun.

Until next time, friends, I’ll see you in the ‘verse <3

*Zyloh’s edit: Molly, you made an immediate impact on our team by brainstorming new and fun ways to communicate with our extended family (the community) through initiatives like Traveler’s Guide, Spectrum AMAs, the Patch Watch, Weekly Wisdom, and many more. When your dream opportunity comes a-knocking you have to take it, but know that we’re going to miss the hell out of you. We wish you luck on your next adventure, and we’ll save a seat for you at the next CitizenCon.

*Christian aka Wayne-CIG’s edit: It was a great pleasure to work with you! With your contagious sense of humor and creativity, you took the ‘Verse and our hearts by storm. I wish you all the best on what’s next! It didn’t take long before you became not only a colleague, but a friend, and you are always invited to ride shotgun in my ship.

*Ulf’s edit: It has been awesome having you as part of our team and we miss you already! I expect that you will print, frame, and hang this picture in wherever your next office will be. And yes, we’ll see you at CitizenCon!

Weekly Wisdom: The Intergalactic Aerospace Expo

You may have heard some idle chatter about something called the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (IAE for short). If you weren’t around last year (which is a large amount of you! So many new pilots!), you may be unfamiliar with the upcoming event and all that it entails. Let’s break it down.

Starting on the 20th, IAE will be taking over the Tobin Expo Center in New Babbage for 13 days of celebration. Each day will boast a new featured manufacturer or group of manufacturers and will feature a flight (ha) of their ships for you to test out for free!

This is also a time we see an influx of new players, drawn to check out everything the 'verse has to offer with the opportunity to Free Fly a variety of ships. Because of this, I'd like to remind everyone to always stay patient and friendly when you come across a rookie pilot.

Community MVP: November 9, 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!

Beautiful Hurston by GalaxyGirl

This week’s MVP goes to GalaxyGirl’s mesmerizing cinematic tour of the highs and lows (topographically, that is) of the less often seen rural side of the planet Hurston.

Check out the full video on the Community Hub.
