Get ready for the next phase in the evolution of astroengineering.
“Humanity still has a long way to go, and I think Consolidated Outland is going to be the one to take them there.” – Silas Koerner
Silas Koerner and Consolidated Outland invite you to the future of colonization. The brand new Pioneer is a mobile construction yard that specializes in creating modular planetary structures. Utilizing an on-board reserve of resources, the Pioneer can construct your new home onsite as well as continue to build once your new settlement is up and running. Whether you’re simply looking to build a little respite far away from the noise and chaos of day-to-day life or you’re bringing civilization to the frontier, the Pioneer will make your dream a reality.
about the concept sale
The Pioneer is being offered for the first time as a limited concept sale. This means that the ship design meets our specifications, but it is not yet ready to display in your Hangar or to fight in Star Citizen. The sale includes Lifetime Insurance on the ship hull and a pair of decorative items for your Hangar. A future patch will add a Pioneer poster and then once the in-game model is finished you will also be given an in-game Pioneer mini ship model! In the future, the ship price will increase and the offer will not include Lifetime Insurance or these extras.
If you are interested in adding one to your fleet, a limited number of War Bond Pioneer hulls (plus outpost construction materials and UEE Claim licenses) are available for purchase during this pre-sale. An additional allotment of hulls, including credit versions, will launch during the full sale on Friday, October 27. The total number of Pioneers available is being limited to adhere with the current design for player-run outposts. Pioneers not sold during the pre-sale will be included in the War Bond allotment for the full sale. Pioneers will be available in the pledge store until Monday, November 6, 2017 (or while supplies last.) Once the full presentation is complete, you can also view a detailed schematic of the Pioneer in the Holo Viewer in the Tech Overview of the ship page, and be sure to enjoy the special CitizenCon brochure featuring the Pioneer.
As with every Concept Sale, we will also be doing a Q&A post. We are also streaming a live presentation with the Pioneer’s designers during CitizenCon 2947, which will be available for review after the event. If you have additional questions, there will be a forum thread on Spectrum to take your questions. Make sure to vote for the questions you most want to see answered and we will be posting the dev’s responses next week. Look for the Comm-Link Schedule next week to find out when that post will go up.

Remember: we are offering this pledge ship to help fund Star Citizen’s development. The funding generated by sales such as these are what allow us to include deeper features in the Star Citizen world. Concept ships will be available for in-game credits in the final universe, and they are not required to start the game.
Additionally, please note that the Pioneer will be entering the ship pipeline now and may be released after other concept ships have been completed. All decorative ‘flair’ items will also be available to acquire in the finished game world. The goal is to make additional ships available that give players a different experience rather than any particular advantage.
