Happy Monday, everyone!
Last week, in preparation for the upcoming launch of Alpha 3.17.2, we opened up the Public Test Universe to all players. Those of you who joined the PTU will have also seen that we tested several new player caps from 75 to 120 players per server. Now, I know that we previously said we had no plans for an increase in player cap on the live servers… however the results of said tests have been so promising, that things have changed. For this reason, we are now exploring increasing the cap for the live release of Alpha 3.17.2. We’re still testing/reviewing and will share more information, including what cap we end up going with, very soon.
In case you missed it on Friday, our Community team held a competitive construction clash, Battle of the Bricks, with the EVE Online Community team, building spaceships with Lego while undergoing excruciating challenges along the way. We raised money for charity Extra Life to support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which made tasting the Icelandic delicacy wolffish or one of the hottest sauces on earth well worth it. We hope that everyone watching had a great time as we celebrated our shared passion for space games. And don’t forget that Donations for Extra Life are still open until late December!
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
This Tuesday, the Narrative team brings us the monthly Galactapedia update.
Back from its hiatus, we’ll welcome a new episode of Inside Star Citizen this Thursday, with a look at the Centurion for Alpha 3.17.2 and new updates to river tech coming online in 3.18
On Friday, you’ll receive our weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox, and Subscribers can look forward to an update to the Subscriber Vault and the July issue of Jump Point magazine. We’ll also air a new episode of Star Citizen Live on our Twitch channel. Stay tuned for the guests and broadcast times.
Have an excellent week,
Lead Community Manager
