March Subscriber Flair!

This month’s Subscriber Flair is the Tuserac Plena, aka the Terran Emperor Blossom! This decorative space plant is the first in an all-new collection that will share some of the amazing plant life found around Star Citizen’s universe! Be sure and take good care of your space plant… give it plenty of light and do not remove it from it’s artificial environment enclosure. Here’s the 4-1-1 on your botanical treat:

Name of plant: Tuserac Plena aka Emperor Blossom
Origin: Terra, Terra
Average Lifespan: Estimated: 50-100 SEY
Description: A member of the Tuserac family of flowers, the Emperor Blossom is one of the most recognizable indigenous plants from Terra. For most of the year, the flower is obscured, covered by what appears to be an unremarkable brown husk, similar to the Typha/Cattail of Earth. When an ideal temperature is reached, the plant enters its blooming phase: the petals peel back, revealing the striking colors underneath. Tens of thousands cross the Zaffre Bay every year for the Twilight Festival which coincides with the blooming of this beautiful flower.​

Don’t want your Emperor Blossom to be lonely? We’ve also distributed the Xi’An Space Plant stretch goal to all who backed Star Citizen before $49 million. Check it out!

If you’re an active subscriber, the flair will be attributed to your account today. If you subscribe over the weekend, the first space plant will be attributed to your account on Tuesday March 15th! More information about subscriptions can be found here....

LIVE: Star Citizen Alpha 2.2.1

LIVE NOW: Star Citizen Alpha 2.2.1

Greetings Citizens!

Star Citizen Alpha Patch 2.2.1 has been released to LIVE and is now available for players! This patch includes key fixes to the 300 series ships and a number of server and client crashes.

Your launcher should show “2.2.1-328656” as the client version. It is strongly recommended that players delete their USER folder for the Public client after patching, particularly if you start encountering any odd character graphical issues or crash on loading. The USER folder can be found (in default installations) at C:\Program Files\Cloud Imperium Games\StarCitizen\Public.

Please review our current list of 2.2.0 Known Issues FAQ, and take full advantage of our Issue Council area of the Community site to report any bugs you encounter, as well as contribute to other players submissions.

And the full patch notes can be found here.

And don’t forget the Aegis Sabre and Xi’An Scout are still available in the pledge store through March 14th.
[​IMG]
Remember: we are offering these pledge ships to help fund Star Citizen’s development. The goal is to make additional ships available that give players a different experience rather than a particular advantage when the persistent universe launches. Ship types sold during limited sales will be available to earn in the finished game.

RE: CaseFile #EA-89549v, Initial Assessment


Incident Report

At 2946-03-04_14:38 SET, local law enforcement in Nedila received a call from Maxwell Kenny (PersonalFile#ES4-78438-652). Kenny had traveled to a nearby settlement, located 213km SSW of Nedila and discovered that it had been under some kind of attack. He was there check in on the Estada family (Michael (38), Corene (37), Uli (17) and Madina (7)) who had not been heard from for several days after failing to attend his child’s birthday party (on 2946-03-01). Kenny called out for any survivors before calling local authorities. Our office was contacted after local police conducted an initial sweep of the scene.

Threshold Assessment

2946-03-04_19:15 SET: I made my way to the settlement without reviewing the local investigation reports in an effort to maintain a fresh perspective of the scene. Circling the settlement from the air, I noted five residences and two water farms. Based on the arrangement of the buildings, it didn’t seem that they were constructed to repel attacks. Three sets of scorch marks indicated that one to three small ships had recently landed and taken off nearby. Outside of the local comm tower, the buildings didn’t appear to have sustained any damage from ship-borne weapons. Swept a search pattern away from the settlement to look for any other clues. Saw nothing, so I decided to land and continue on foot.

On the ground, buildings were damaged from prolonged small arms fire. Chem analysis of the burn patterns indicate plasma-based weapons were used. Moving through the buildings, it looked like some of the inhabitants barricaded...

Monthly Studio Report February
Greetings Citizens,

We had an extra day this February, and we put it to good use! Star Citizen Alpha 2.2 is now ‘live’ and Citizens everywhere are making good use of the new features to expand their adventures around Crusader. Between the hostility system, physicalized EVA and the increased instance limit, things are hopping! An extra special thank you to our front line PTU testers this month, who helped us put out an astounding nine builds before we released 2.2! With 2.2 live, the team is eager to move on to features to be added for 2.3… but before that happens, we’ll take our monthly look back at Star Citizen’s progress for February 2016.

CIG Los Angeles

Greetings Citizens!

We are back again with another month in 2016 that has come and gone. Time does seem to fly when you are having fun, doesn’t it? We are definitely having fun, but make no mistake, we are completely focused on getting more enjoyable content released so you can join our merriment within the black void of space.

With the 2.2 patch released, it is hard to believe it has already been a month since our last community update; not because time flies so quickly but because of how busy the CIG LA office has been these past 29 days (we definitely appreciate the Leap Year giving us an extra day to polish content). Just to give you an idea of what we have been up to, here is a breakdown of what each development team in the LA office has been up to.

The LA Engineering team has been elbows-deep in new technologies that are getting incorporated into Star Citizen. Starting with Allen Chen’s efforts, we have looked at how player interactions work in-game. For...
