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 July 26, 2023
The following deliverables have been added to Progress Tracker:
New Missions – Steal Evidence
A criminal mission type where players are tasked with infiltrating Security Post Kareah and stealing files from Crusader Security for a hefty payout.
New Missions – Cargo Hauling
Making use of the Freight Elevators feature, this mission type will have players hauling large quantities of cargo to earn both aUEC and reputation.
New Missions – Steal/Recover Cargo
Steal/Recover Cargo missions will see players recovering and/or stealing cargo from both derelict and active ships, then hauling the cargo to its intended destination.
New Missions – Restoration Contracts
Utilizing the Repair functionality of the multi-tool salvage attachment, players are tasked to restore ships from bow to stern, patching up the hull, replacing missing or faulty internal components, and replacing weapon loadouts in new salvage yard locations.
Reputation – Shop Discounts
Players will have the ability to receive discounts in certain shops based on their reputation with affiliated organizations.
Reputation – Hostility
Players will encounter AI that are either friendly or hostile based on their reputation with the organization the AI belong to. This also includes different friendly-fire thresholds and defense responses.
Reputation – Sandbox Triggers
This feature will allow for players to have their reputation increase or decrease with organizations based on their actions in the persistent universe, separate from missions. This in turn will either allow or prevent players from accepting missions for particular organizations.
The following card has been added to Release View targeting an Alpha 3.20.0 release:
Physicalized Cargo Updates
Adding new functionality to accommodate the release of the MISC Hull C. This includes both automated cargo loading at LEO stations as well as SCU containers up to 32 SCU.
The following card has been added to Release View targeting an Alpha 3.20.X release:
Crusader A1 Spirit
Building, balancing, and implementing Crusader Industries’ light bomber, the A1 Spirit, into the game.
New Crusader Platforms / New Missions – Retrieve Consignment
Due to encountering several issues with RaStar while setting up locations, these two deliverables did not pass their final review and need additional work before they’re released to the Live servers. Therefore, these features will remain Tentative on Release View and will now target a 3.20.X release (while remaining in the 3.20 column).
That’s all for this week!
