This Week in Star Citizen
December 14, 2020

Happy Monday, everyone!

All eyes are on the horizon, where Alpha 3.12 is already dawning as the Public Test Servers are open to all backers now. As soon as Star Citizen Alpha 3.12 hits the live servers, you can look forward to great things both inside and outside the game as we look to celebrate Luminalia with you.

Speaking of great things… Last week, we announced our cooperation with Tobii and you can find all the info on how to use the Tobii Eyetracker 5 in Star Citizen here.

Check out last week’s Star Citizen Live with Core Gameplay Director Richard Tyrer and Star Citizen Live Director Todd Papy, who joined us to answer your questions, from tractor beams to gas clouds and more. And if you’re still looking for more information, keep a close eye on Spectrum (pinned in General) as we revived our Patch Watch series last week to discuss improvements coming for Headtracking and Countermeasures, and we’re back again this week to talk Reputation V1!

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

On Tuesday, the Narrative Team gifts us with Drifters Part Four, the follow-up to a Serialized Fiction episode that you can catch up on here.

Thursday, Inside Star Citizen takes a closer look at Star Citizen’s Year in Review in 2020’s final episode. We are also looking forward to picking up where the story left off in Star Citizen: The Reunion, Part I on our YouTube channel.

Wrapping up the week on Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault, and the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. Subscribers will also receive the December Issue of Jump Point, Star Citizen’s official digital magazine. Edit: As we’re working towards publishing our new Roadmap, there won’t be an update to the old Roadmap this week other than marking the features for Alpha 3.12 as released.

Have an excellent week!

Weekly Wisdom: Don’t fly – Drive!

Why always move 25 tons when you want to enjoy the spectacular landscapes of microTech? Leave your spaceship in the hangar, head to the New Babbage spaceport garages, and spawn a ground vehicle. Follow the stairs leading up past the gift store and the ship spawn consoles, and you will find the vehicle consoles to your left. Once you're chasing between the snow-covered trees, you won't miss your ship.

Community MVP: December 14, 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!
