This Week in Star Citizen
March 8, 2021

Happy Monday!

March 8 marks International Women’s Day: a day to celebrate women worldwide, highlight achievements, and raise awareness about equality. Women play an integral part in the development of Star Citizen and day-to-day operations at CIG, holding vital roles as artists, animators, coders, and producers (to name but a few!). Today, we’re taking the opportunity to share some employee spotlights on our social channels and YouTube to celebrate the fantastic work the women of CIG deliver every day.

After all the great feedback we received on our Alpha 3.12 Postmortem, this week, we’re diving into the learnings of XenoThreat in a postmortem focusing on the recent dynamic event. Keep an eye out for the post on Wednesday.

Furthermore, we want to give you an early heads up about our next AMA. On Tuesday, March 16, you’ll have the opportunity to ask your burning questions directly to our Character Tech Team!

Lastly, please be advised that maintenance will affect the website, launcher, and game on Tuesday. Services will be offline for around three hours starting at 1pm UTC (5am PST), March 9.

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

On Monday, you can head to our social channels to learn a bit more about the women of CIG.

On Tuesday, the thrilling adventure of Sid & Cyrus continues in a new lore post! In the final installment, Sid & Cyrus join forces with their daughter to try and end the Vucari’s reign of terror. Catch up here on what happened in the story so far.

Then, on Wednesday, you can look forward to an update to the Roadmap, alongside a Roadmap Roundup! We’ll also take a look at what went well and what didn’t during the XenoThreat dynamic event in our latest Postmortem. And for everyone that missed the newsletter last week, we’ll also be reposting the Squadron 42 Monthly Report as a Comm-Link.

Then on Thursday, Inside Star Citizen will focus on ground vehicle updates alongside the latest sprint report!

On Friday, you’ll see an update to the Subscriber Vault and the RSI Newsletter. We’ll also welcome a new Star Citizen Live episode at 09:00am Pacific/05:00pm UTC, with members of the VFX Team stopping by for a roundtable Q&A – look for the question-gathering post with relevant topics later today on Spectrum. And last but not least, we’ll kick off our Stella Fortuna celebrations. Not sure what Stella Fortuna is all about? Check out our Galactapedia!

Have a great week!

CARRACK DECK II in 4K by Gunnyth3gun

Gunnyth3gun strolled through the Carrack and took countless screenshots only to sit down afterward and recreate the rooms with stunning detail in Blender. We’re sure that a lot of work went into this but, looking at the outcome, we can say it was 100% worth it!
