Happy Wednesday, everyone!
Every two weeks, we accompany the Roadmap update with a brief explanatory note to give you insight into the decision-making that led to any changes. This is part of an effort to make our communications more transparent, more specific, and more insightful for all of you who help to make Star Citizen and Squadron 42 possible.
With that said, let’s go ahead and dive into this week’s Roadmap Roundup!

Notable Changes for February 22, 2023
The following card has been added to the Alpha 3.18 column on Release View:
RSI Scorpius Antares
Building, implementing, and balancing RSI’s EMP and quantum jammer-equipped fighter, the Scorpius Antares, as a game-ready vehicle.
With this publish, we’re adding the Q1 2023 and Q3 2023 schedules for downstream and upstream teams, respectively, with more teams to be added in a subsequent publish.
The following deliverables have been added to the Progress Tracker:
New Missions – Salvage Contracts
With more civilian access to salvage ships, contract brokers are offering salvage jobs for derelicts around Lagrange Points around Stanton. These brokers charge a fee for their services so this will require some buy-in, but the contractors are free to keep any salvaged material for resale.
Duster Faction Outfits
Developing multiple outfit variants for the Stanton gang, the Dusters.
Implementing new modes to vehicles to manage a their speed, components, and role-specific functions.
Previously removed from USPU’s schedule, this deliverable returns to Progress Tracker with this publish.
That’s all for this week!
