Today we’re proud to introduce you to Forrest Stephan, Technical Artist on Star Citizen. Forrest was responsible for much of the environmental art you saw during the campaign… and he’s working on some spectacular new things now that we can’t wait to share with you! You’ll be able to meet Forrest this Friday, live on Wingman’s Hangar (11 AM CST.)

If you are a Kickstarter backer who has not linked their pledge to an RSI account, check your e-mail today! New messages went out this morning to all unlinked Kickstarter backers. These e-mails contain a custom link which can be used to import your Kickstarter pledge to the RSI system, allowing you to sign up for your customized Citizen Card. Your linking message will have been sent to the e-mail you have registered with Kickstarter. If it is not in your inbox, check your spam folder. The subject is “Register your Pledges to Star Citizen.”
For more information, please see the Citizen Card FAQ.
Please note that we are currently working through e-mail support requests regarding Citizen Cards. As long as you have contacted firstname.lastname@example.org we will get to you and you will receive your custom card, regardless of the deadline. Because of the volume, this may take several days; there is no need to send a follow-up message. If you have been having an issue with the form or would like to change/upgrade your status, please try again: we’ve rolled out an enhanced version that allows for further changes today!
Finally, Sandi does not have enough ‘yes’ votes in order to make a metal upgrade option for bronze and silver cards feasible. If you would be interested in paying $10 to upgrade your plastic bronze or silver level card to a brushed metal card, please vote in the following poll:
