This Week in Star Citizen 08/2023

Happy Monday, everyone!

In case you missed it, Alpha 3.18 is currently available to all backers on the PTU servers, so you can already experience Persistent Entity Streaming, Salvage, and much more. If you plan on visiting the PTU servers for the first time, you can find out more in our Knowledge Base

We wanted to thank all of you PTU testers out there for helping us kick the tires and bang the pipes, especially over the last weekend; your participation and engagement have proved invaluable in helping us identify critical issues, such as the memory leak that was causing some pesky crashes. The vast amount of data you generated throughout this PTU cycle has enabled the team to identify and implement much-needed fixes. We want to ensure we catch any stability-related bugs before switching to the Live environment, and we’re very close. Your help is super appreciated and plays a vital role in us getting Alpha 3.18 to the live servers, especially this week as we navigate the home stretch. The more traffic we can get on the PTU this week, the better odds we have of getting this one out the door, so we hope to see you in the ‘verse alongside us!

For those interested in what’s coming beyond Alpha 3.18, you can get a sneak peek by checking out last week’s ISC that showcases the upcoming improvements and additions to mining coming in Alpha 3.19. 

We also want to remind you that many Bar Citizen events are occurring every week, such as the one in Angers, France, this Saturday. On, you can find real-life events in your area and register your own events for others to discover and attend. Remember to let us know about your meetups on Spectrum; we just might make a pitstop and crash the party! 

Also, for you racing fans, qualifying rounds for System7 are happening this weekend.

Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

This Tuesday, the Narrative team brings us their monthly Galactapedia update.

Wednesday sees the release of February’s Monthly Reports, with the PU’s coming as a comm-link and Squadron 42’s via newsletter.

Thursday’s episode of Inside Star Citizen features an interior whitebox tour of the new Underground Facilities first showcased at CitizenCon 2952.

This Friday, Star Citizen Live features Mike Snowdon and members of the VFX team discussing their work. Don’t miss it at 16:00 UTC / 8:00 am Pacific. You’ll also receive our weekly RSI Newsletter in your inbox.

Have a stellar week both in and out of the ‘verse!
