This Week in Star Citizen
April 5, 2021

Happy Monday!

In case you missed it, Alpha 3.13 is now available on the PTU to Wave 1 testers! If you’re not in Wave 1, fear not! We’ll be rolling out the patch to a wider testing group soon.

Last week on Calling All Devs, we took a deep dive into the progress of player-controlled refueling and repair systems with Assistant Design Director Dan Trufin and Lead FPS Systems Designer Jonny Jacevicius. Get insight into the design of these upcoming mechanics directly on our YouTube Channel.

The Spring Merch Promotion is underway! For a limited time only, we’re giving you the opportunity to bag a wide variety of merch for up to 50% off! Be sure to check out the promotion before it ends on April 13!

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

The Narrative team has gathered some of the community’s burning questions from the Ask A Dev section on Spectrum and compiled the answers into an easy-to-read Comm-Link which we’ll publish on Tuesday. (FYI: You can expect more Q&As like this in the future as we look to revitalize the Ask A Dev section)

On Wednesday we have March’s Monthly reports for Star Citizen and Squadron 42 headed your way. Also, the Star Citizen Public Roadmap is getting a significant update, including the addition of 20+ new teams to the Progress Tracker and some highly requested new features to the roadmap itself. Keep an eye out for the upcoming Roadmap Roundup for the full list.

Thursday won’t see an episode of Inside Star Citizen as we brought the quarterly season to a close, but fear not, the show will resume in just a couple weeks!

On Friday, you’ll receive an update to the Subscriber Vault and the RSI Newsletter to your inbox. We also have another installment of Star Citizen Live on our Twitch channel. Star Citizen Live Director Todd Papy and Core Gameplay Director Richard Tyrer are joining this week for a Q&A All About Alpha 3.13, so be sure to get your questions in on the Spectrum Thread in time for the livestream at 8am Pacific / 3pm UTC.

Have a great week!

Jake Bradley
Associate Community Manager

P.S.: Hello there! I should probably introduce myself since I’m a new name on these posts! My name is Jake, and I’m the newest addition to the Community Team! I joined CIG back in November, and have been primarily focused on backend tasks and releasing/managing the new and improved Public Roadmap (check it out if you haven’t yet!). You’ve probably seen me bouncing around in various Discord/Twitch chats talking about it. I’m a long-time content creator and backer of Star Citizen, and working here has been an absolute privilege so far.

Some fun facts about me: My favorite ship has been the Prowler since it was nay but a paragraph, my favorite games of all time are The Last of Us Part II, Kingdom Hearts 2, and Mass Effect 2 (I like 2’s, what can I say?), and I’m on an eternal quest for the perfect spicy chicken sandwich.

Feel free to drop me a line on Spectrum @JakeAcappella-CIG or Twitter @jakeacappella, I’m excited to get to know y’all even better!
