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
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!
