Happy Monday, everyone!
Firstly, we’d like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who participated in last weekend’s Alpha 3.18 PTU playtests! Your participation was monumental in helping us shore up several known problem areas, including server stability and performance. This led to a few vital hotfixes being deployed and the team getting the jump on further fixes coming down the line.
Your engagement last weekend enabled us to start tightening up the nuts and bolts on this build. Because of our success over the weekend, we are aiming to go live with Alpha 3.18 this week. We do want to set expectations that there may be some outstanding issues that can cause a server to deteriorate over time. However, the team will continue to focus on these and get additional hotfixes released as soon as possible.
For those of you looking to hang out with other enthusiasts in the flesh, check out BarCitizen.sc for a list of upcoming events. Maybe you’ll hit up the Bar Citizen in Raleigh, North Carolina, this Friday or join our friends down under in Sydney, Australia, on Saturday; either way, we hope you enjoy a cold one. And remember to tell us in advance so we have the chance to join you!
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
This Tuesday, we’ll publish the Subscriber Monthly Newsletter and Subscriber Comm-Link.
Wednesday brings about the Roadmap Update and the complementary Roadmap Roundup. We’ll also repost last week’s Squadron 42 Monthly Report newsletter as a comm-link.
On Thursday, ISC skips a week for another Journey to 4.0 special. This time it’s a Design Brief episode focusing on the earliest approved blueprint for a brand-new upcoming gameplay system. Last time we learned about Investigations. What will it be this week? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
This Friday, our good friend Benoit Beausejour, CTO and founder of our partners at Turbulent, is live in the studio to discuss the continuing growth of our game development studio in Montreal, which is currently responsible for many aspects of Alpha 3.18 and beyond. Join us for Star Citizen Live on Twitch at 16:00 UTC / 8 am Pacific for all the details! You’ll also receive our weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox.
Have a fantastic week, and see you in the ‘verse!
