    Rule of thumb where money is involved and emails arrive is to ignore the email and log onto the site where the money is and see what is going on. If there IS something going on you will get flagged with the appropriate messages. If there IS NOT anything going on – someone tried to gather your password using a phishing email. Best to then let the account know of the phishing attempt and change password (if you think you have been compromised), the usual nervous nelly stuff. I am always getting Important Alerts from banks I do not belong to, so even when they do guess the right bank now and again, I ignore the message and go to check the account. Stay alert. - DRUM out

    Looking for Gaming Rig

    I don't believe you'll have a good time. The game heavily relies on the CPU and VRAM. Anything below 4GB VRAM is just not really able to play the game. I'd say that 4GB VRAM is the minimum requirement. I would look elsewhere. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Pzzc4q This is what I came up with, and I would consider this entry level for Star Citizen. Buy a $60 game package that includes both SC and Squadron 42, and then spend the money on the build or similar spec PC and you'll probably be fine at low/medium settings at launch.

    Game Day, June 30th

    Hello Once More @Imperium Members! This month we’ll be continuing the format from last time! In case you missed it, here is the explanation of the changes and some new information related to how Game Days will operate in the near future: We wanted to improve the experience of Game Day overall and felt that with Star Citizen in its current state just doesn’t warrant the amount of effort that we had once been able to put into it. IE. Custom Scenarios, Hype Trailers, Streaming, Competitions. Eventually that will change again and we can get back to the game that we are so anxiously awaiting. Until that time we would like to keep Game Day’s focus as a team building event that gives us a regular time each month that we can set aside to play games as an org. You’ll notice at the top of this post there is a poll with several games as options. If you plan on taking part in this Game Day, please vote for your favorite choice from this list, and those that play in the chosen game will be added into a raffle! The poll will close on this next Friday, the 25th of May. You’ll still be free to join in with anyone else that would be playing Star Citizen, so don’t worry if you don’t have any of the games in the list. In fact you will probably find lots of us getting into the new mining mechanics by next weekend. It would be a thrill to see some of the trade and industry folks show up and mine some space rocks for the first time. If you would like to suggest game to play together as an org on future Game Day’s please leave us suggestions in this thread and we will add them to the poll for the next event. We’ll also be shortening the duration of Game Day for this month. Instead of 1600 UTC through 0400 UTC, we’ll be starting at 1800 UTC and run to 0400 UTC. Joining Game Day For those of you that want to make a return visit, or show up for the first time, you only need to enter the Landing Channel on Teamspeak (ts.starcitizenbase.com), and one of our Hosts will direct you to the action! Raffles As for most other Game Day’s, we will be providing raffles for participants that play games in Star Citizen. However, this month we will be only conducting a participation raffle, so if you join any Star Citizen games created by other Imperium members, you’ll be entered into the raffle! As mentioned above, we will also be conducting a participation raffle for the winning game from the poll. Said game will have several TS channels created for players to meet up and play together, and doing so will enter you into this second raffle as well! Since we are hosting two games at once, be sure to check in with an officer or specialist that your name was added to the raffle of the game you played in! (As much as we may pretend otherwise, our Game Day hosts are still human, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on your chance to win free stuff) The prizes for both raffles will be $10 Star Citizen gift cards, and the winners of the raffles will be PM’d in the following week to confirm their prizes. New to Star Citizen? Read this post for information on the game and our Game Days:

    Drake Kraken

    QUICK REMINDER: The Drake Kraken has been added to the Portal. We would appreciate it if you would update your Portal Hangars to reflect your Kraken purchase (and any ships that you might have melted, if any, to buy it) as soon as possible. Also, if you would also like to notify Fleet Ops (myself) so that I can add you to out internal list, or if you should have any questions about our Capital Ship utilization policies, I welcome any comments or questions that you might have.

    Yeah I've voiced my concern on this front for years now. If you look at the Units in this very org, you see way more capital ships in people's hangars than there are people in the unit to crew them. In reality, every single person with an Idris or Polaris or bigger should have their own Unit worth of people to crew them. And even if this was somehow accomplished, there's no telling if any of these "Captains" are worth their salt when it comes to leadership, organizational abilities, playtime, let alone the fun part where they have to make tactical decisions in combat (the Captain Herbert Sobel effect, for those of you who've seen Band of Brothers). I view the Units as very pre-mature, as just from forums posts, there's a couple people I respect, a couple people I think are idiots, and the vast majority I have no idea about. So I haven't joined a Unit yet. I'd rather see it mature organically in-game, "hey, so-and-so runs a real good Idris in the persistent universe, he should create and lead his own Unit of people who want to crew it". So at some point when the game gets closer to being real, this Org needs to hard-core recruit Aurora owners, people who plopped down their $40 to $60 but not much more, and ask them if they want to crew a big ship. We have way more whales than we can feed, or so it appears.

    National Space Society

    I was all in for Sagan's Planetary Society back in the day. Great group but we kept losing battles. The front goal was to lobby for a self contained moon base to act as a focus for advancement that was not in a gravity well. The louder voices made the focus an unsustainable orbital vehicle. Then the push to get rid of massive rocketry and move towards reusable shuttles. The argument against shuttles was they would only support close orbit missions, and in effect it would abandon deep space projects. Not only did the shuttle push win, the shallow thinkers at NASA also pretty much destroyed any plans, mock ups, or prints of the massive rockets. This was to force the thinking on shuttle only. Don't know what they called that at NASA, but it is called burning your bridges in the non scientific world. And the quest for space gradually dwindled and died. Harder to get interest up when you are replacing an orbital base crew for the 30th time. All the huge space projects were easy to push away and forget also, since we did not have vehicles to launch them, even if we decided to do one. If I sound bitter it is because I am. I grew up knowing I was going to have a job in space. The race to the moon only served to intensify the dreams. But we took the moon trophy and retired. Hoping for dreams from politicians is apparently a lost cause. New hope now though. There are a few billionaires with a space urge. They may get us where the government failed to go. No one is electing them to office, so they will be in for the long haul and not fade away on us. Too late for me, but some of you younger folks can revive the dream of a space based job in the next few decades. - DRUM out

    ORDER ON SUBMITTED MATTER by Magistrate Judge Frederick F. Mumm: denying30 Motion for protective Order controlling timing and scope of discovery pending resolution of motion to dismiss: On April 17, 2018, the Court announced a tentative ruling to deny the motion and then entertained oral argument. At the conclusion of the argument, the Court took the matter under submission. Upon further review, the Court notes that Judge Gee issued an Initial Standing Order on December 13, 2017. Paragraph 4.b. of that order addresses discovery before and after the scheduling conference. Specifically, the order provides that "it is advisable for counsel to begin to conduct discovery actively before the Scheduling Conference." Although early discovery is strongly encouraged, Judge Gee's policy is not to require the parties to participate in discovery until a scheduling order has issued. As no scheduling order has been issued in this case as of now, defendants are not required to respond to discovery at this time. The motion for stay, therefore, is moot and denied on that basis. IT IS SO ORDERED. (jm) https://www.pacermonitor.com/public/case/23222744/Crytek_GmbH_v_Cloud_Imperium_Games_Corp_et_al Updated on tuesday April 17th. The last bit is the most interesting: From what I understand initially the Court wanted to deny the Motion for protective Order but allowed for an oral argument. There it was noted that an earlier Initial Standing Order from Judge Gee had stated that while early discovery was encouraged it is not required. As no scheduling order has been issued CIG is not even required to respond to Crytek's discovery demands at all at this time. If I have been reading this correct it is a small victory for CIG as they don't have to be bothered with Crytek's ridiculously intrusive 'show us everything' demands at the moment as both parties have to agree on a scheduling order first. To me Crytek's whole demand for discovery was an obvious farce and solely intended to cause as much damage to CIG as possible while at the same time serving as a threat to strong-arm them into paying an unknown (but probably massive) sum as a settlement that would be disproportionate to a supposed breach of a mere $2.1M contract that, when reading the plain language of the contract, doesn't even exist. So it seems CIG can just play the waiting game until the judge rules on the MtD.

    3.1 vs. 3.0 comparison

    Obviously, it becomes a tradition - every new patch I do a video with a visual comparison of the previous and current patch. In the current build, 3.1, something turned out better, and something is on the contrary worse. I tried to show the main differences, but could miss something - if you know something else, write about it in the comments. The video turned out to be longer than I planned, so I added a timecode with a timetable of events - it can be found on YouTube, the first fixed comment. Enjoy watching! P.S. If you liked my writings, put your finger/arrow up in: Citizen Spotlight Spectrum Reddit

    Absolutely nothing will be done without first being approved by Fleet Command. As it is, we have diplomatic relations with a large number of organizations, including TEST, and if our members were take up this bounty, they'd be actively violating our CoC. That said, yes there will be wars in the future, when the game dynamics kick in, but that won't be happening for a long time.

    https://www.pcgamesn.com/star-citizen/squadron-42-henry-cavill Squadron 42’s new trailer is so good Mark Hamill’s fans thought it was a Netflix show The latest trailer for Star Citizen’s Squadron 42 recently dropped, looking gorgeous enough to make its many fans start throwing money at their screens. The latest trailer for the record-breaking crowd-funded title shows off a quite a bit, with allusions to its plot, a few seconds of gameplay, and a cast full to the brim of big names.Topping the bill are the likes of Mark Hamill, who’s set to pick up where he left off in the Wing Commander games of old. We also finally got confirmation that Henry Cavill, who was recently cast as Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix adaptation of the books, will join Hamill in Squadron 42 as pilot Ryan Enright. Cavill has pinned a clip of himself in the game to his Facebook page, commenting that he was set to “answer the call”. Hamill himself took to Twitter to promote the trailer, bringing the ambitious game to almost three million of his fans in the process. It’s clear that many such fans are not gamers: one reply to Hamill’s tweet seems to think that Squadron 42 is a Netflix show, much to the amusement of davidnfilms on Reddit, who says: “we’ve reached people guys… like a lot of people.” Shoring up Hamill and Cavill in Squadron 42 are Gary Oldman, Gillian Anderson, Mark Strong, John Rhys-Davies and more. Do some star-spotting of your own in the trailer below: It’s honestly a pretty amazing cast, boasting some of the highest-profile actors we’ve yet seen in a game. But then I guess that’s what literally hundreds of millions of crowdfunded dollars can get you. Between star power like that and the apparent excitement of Hamill’s fans on Twitter, Star Citizen – a huge space sim of which Squadron 42 is only the single-player campaign – stands poised to push gaming even further into the mainstream. The game is aiming for a full release in 2019, though no specific date has yet been announced. READ MORE Star Citizen development Upcoming PC games Star Citizen Simulation

    Crusader Hecules Starlifter

    I'm also more interested in space combat, which is why I backed Star Citizen, but I'm glad that SC will have ground combat. In the early days, I thought SC would have basic FPS combat and small planet environments, approx. the size of the surface levels of the Mass Effect games. I expected that ground combat would be a post-launch enhancement. I'm pleased that CIG has developed procedurally generated planets, base/outpost building, and combat vehicles, but as VoA pointed out, CIG seems to be shifting focus to the ground instead of expanding star systems. The PU is limited to the Crusader planetary system, which is just one planet in the Stanton System. Completing the entire Stanton System isn't even on the Roadmap for 2018! It seems like CIG is fleshing out planet-based content and ground combat mechanics to give players more to do in the absence of more space content. I'd prefer space, but planets can still be fun. The reason why I'm not upset about the focus on ground combat is that it should relate to EVA space combat and ship boarding. Ground combat is a stepping stone. Supporting ground combat will probably mean that CIG will prioritize the Redeemer rework and hopefully the Esperia Prowler, because they're dropships. I'm looking forward to flying my Prowler.

    Star Citizen Alpha 3.1.0h PTU.734796 Reclaimer is now in for testing!!! Video walkthrough (facebook.com) https://www.facebook.com/norgeek/videos/10160264911895094/ Video - quicklook " Everyone should go check it out in Free Flight where they have unlimited time. Everything is well laid out and makes functional sense once you learn where it all is. The layout is not hard to remember once you've got it down, and the component access locations also make sense. Then, once you've explored the interior thoroughly, you can EVA around the outside and see where all the hatches and panels are, including the drone hatch, cargo hatch at the far rear that opens into the salvage processing room, the cargo lift with all it's different access levels, etc. It's really cool. I won't be lost in the Reclaimer again and I really look forward to spending a lot of time in it. Oh, and the bridge is highly defensible against boarding.
