Happy Monday, everyone!
Today we’re kicking off the ultimate in vesselmania with this year’s SHIP SHOWDOWN! Who will become the ultimate Champion of 2953 in the most important popularity event of the year? But first, it’s time for our flyable and driveable crafts to survive Phase One and get into the top 16; otherwise, the dream of eternal glory will be crushed before it begins. To avoid early termination, your favorite needs your support, creativity, and cheering! Check out the Ship Showdown page for more details and your chance to win a spaceship.
Phase One, running until August 21, is all about spotlighting your favorite vehicle by sharing original content to the Community Hub or Twitter with the hashtags #SCShipShowdown and #StarCitizen. This can be an original song, something physically crafted, an epic in-game or real-life shot, a trailer, a music video… you can even take it a step further and construct the ship in real life if you’re up to the challenge! To maximize your fav’s chances of advancing to Phase Two and the top 16, upvote, like, and reshare any content of the vessel you want to win.
Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:
Tuesday marks the return of the Narrative team with ‘Jerry: A Half-Told History.’
This Wednesday sees the latest Roadmap Update accompanied by a Roadmap Roundup. Plus, we’ll publish last week’s July Squadron 42 Monthly Report email as a comm-link.
On Thursday, Inside Star Citizen’s latest episode is a look at the VFX department, their role in development, and an update on their latest work.
This Friday, Star Citizen Live returns with Elliot Maltby from Mission Features, who’ll take us through the mission-making process. Don’t miss it at 8am Pacific/3pm UTC. You’ll also see the weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox. And don’t forget, you have until Friday 06:59 AM UTC to participate in the 2953 Arlington Gang Screenshot Contest to win a beefy battleship.
Have a stellar week both in and out of the ‘verse!
