  1. http://wccftech.com/star-citizen-exclusive-interview-erin-roberts/ WCCF Tech interviewed Erin Roberts and the amount of juicy information in there coming from a top man is fantastic. I'm still making my way through it, rather than wait for a TLDR, you probably would enjoy just reading this one. My favorite quotes/article spoilers: This. Engineer love!
  2. Everyone knows (or should know) that RSI is currently Updating all the Hangars. These updated hangars will be truly transformative compared to what we currently have = Hangar 1.0. They are adding better graphics, PBR, room expansions, decorations, bling, and eventually the connection to the PU - with the Planet Side / Social Module. I wanted to Create a Thread so people can keep up to date with all the Hangar 2.0 News (like we have Ship Threads). Post anything you want on this thread regarding hangars, even sharing what you have currently for decoration, fish in your fish tank, vehicles, share images, photos, etc... The idea with the thread is to show off your home and share new info from the Community and RSI about Hangar 2.0. I'll try to keep this OP up-to-date with relevant Images and Video's that pertain to Hangars 2.0. We will be getting images, videos, Dev posts, etc... about the WIP that CIG is now starting to reveal on the Hangars. We can use this thread to collate all new WIP items about Hangars like these sister (archive) threads: Discount Hangar 2.0 No New Hangar 2.0 Info Yet Business Hangar 2.0 At 26:35m in ATV ep07 Deluxe Hangar 2.0 Asteroid Hangar 2.0 has more images and details ======== And an image just for fun
  3. Couple of cool things this Ben's Day - 3m - Confirmed Anvil Huriccane is the next Concept Ship 14:40m - No answer from Ben yet but @GRIZZ gets his question asked about the Reclaimer being able to land 18:30m - Haven't heard about Hangar updates from awhile but the Modular Hangar rooms are still on the table - like a personal living quarters, map room, etc...
  4. Astronomers have recently reasoned that the deep space radio bursts that have been occurring since 2007, have come from a dwarf galaxy 3 billion light years away, outside the Milkyway. It'll be interesting to see what articles follow this one. If alien life does exist, what can we expect to come in the future? http://www.theverge.com/2017/1/4/14158048/deep-space-fast-radio-wave-burst-frb-121101
  5. Former Imperial News Network editors and contributors created a new brand and website over the past weeks. Today their new website was revealed. This will house all the star citizen news, transcripts, fiction and more. Check them out at https://relay.sc/ Also, join them throughout the day on their livestream at http://twitch.tv/relay_sc with all sorts of guests and giveaways
  6. http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2016/11/spacex-plans-worldwide-satellite-internet-with-low-latency-gigabit-speed/
  7. NSFW Contains Violence / Warfare
  8. Some great shots showing the planetary tech. Of particular interest at 19:03 you can see that he's moving the star. Check out the planet in the distance and how it reacts to the system's moving light source. Also, they show Earth in 2946 with all the ice melted. I put together as good a side by side as I could using a NatGeo picture. Someone with Google Earth could add the sea level layer and create a nearly perfect shot for comparison.
  9. Awesome to see the details and design of the Polaris (in the first part)
  10. Per the Monthly Report: September 2014 we will be getting images, videos, Dev posts, etc... about the WIP that CIG is now starting to reveal on Squadron 42 (but CIG is careful about leaks on S42 because they rightfully don't want to not spoil the story for players - so you may want to view this thread as a SPOILER thread). We can use this thread to collate all new WIP items about Squadron 42 like these sister threads: CIG Did reveal some Squadron 42 items in Citizen Con 2014. Below is a short Vid on the Subin Mining Station that will be in Squadron 42 but you may want to watch the entire presentation (it has more S42 items). Some of these items may end up being posted on other threads but this thread is intended to be a long term research thread where items are collated in one location. We can post other CIG - S42 updates on this thread as we get them (over time) & I did update the sister threads (links above) with additional stuff from CitizenCon 2014 New update - Dev Post We're still in the early stages of deciding how much and what is to be carried across to PU so I can't really go into to much detail but we are extremely considerate of the fact that we don't want to negatively impact the player. We want choices to enrich the player's narrative not to punish them and we want these defining moments to be choices. Not a judgement on player ability. Hope this helps New update - Dev Post
  11. Yes I am still around - just busy with work (for those that maybe wondering ) Here is a 2 part CR interview I didn't see posted :
  12. Hello fellow pilots and citizens This chat is available here: Endeavoir and carrack release date? see 12'50 polaris? see 27'40 ... take care!
  13. EU Wants To Treat Internet Like Music Content? (Sept. 20, 2016) CAUTION: If you become interested in examining this issue, prepare for a LOT of policy draft scanning to get past the mumble jumble included in this information link. DISCLAIMER: I am all for copyright protection, so I am kind of torn by what is being attempted in the EU regarding 'content across borders'. Anyone in the EU up to date on the state of this Draft that was leaked? http://statewatch.org/news/2016/aug/eu-com-copyright-draft.pdf (note: if this link becomes broken contact me for a saved draft - DRUM) It seems they are trying to prevent a Race To The Bottom for copyright fees, or cross border assimilation via Internet and//or satellite, which hurts the content makers revenue. You have to get past page 70 before any real information is available, since the first half of the draft is busy painting a rosy landscape for the implementation of this draft. Since they cannot control most of the satellite and Internet transmissions, what this would eventually entail is if You Were In Possession of some data feed from a source other than one regulated by this EU COM mandate, then you would be subjected to fines, etc. The draft claims to expand viewers options, but what I read in this is that it increases the revenue of the content makers. This appears to me to just be an expansion of what the music industry did to collect more monies from people who were 'stealing' their music. While the protections for researches and scientific papers would benefit, this goes way beyond that in scope. So now youtube, spotify, deezer and other uncontrolled content could also be properly monetized by the providers They state that the cost for consumers would only Slightly Increase by this act (cough, right). Unless, like mentioned above, you got the data from somewhere not regulated, in which case you would be afoul of the law. If you think they will only go for the deep pockets of providers, you were not paying attention when the music industry cracked down. There is another take on this from the Consumer Technology Association. They kind of glossed over the protections provided for research and other papers, but they did hit on an unintended consequence of this draft. https://www.cta.tech/News/Blog/Articles/2016/September/Europeans-Shoot-Themselves-in-the-Foot-Again.aspx How do you (in the EU) feel this will affect you? Is there any local push for//against this in your locale? More curious than concerned, although, depending on what occurs over there, it may morph into something that would affect us Across The Pond.... Let me know. - DRUM out
  14. Send your questions to Batgirl for Bensday to starcitizenaa@gmail.com -This Saturday is the Wing Commander 2 livestream, its usually the end all play through chuck full of special guests from the original dev team, Chris Roberts tends to pop in, plus ship raffles. -Herald: You will see courier missions before data hacking. Ben is outlining a brochure now for the Herald regarding this. -Idris is still the largest landable ship -Refueling from starfarer is not too far away, can't say if it will make 3.0. -Squadron 42 framerates will not be server limited. (Similar to the hangar - Grizz) -Shock absorbers in landing gears? "That's the kind of incremental improvement you should see." - Ben -There will eventually become more rules for flight paths going to and from landing pads. -Nothing to note on getting private npc's for extra packages, they will re-look at the wording of the 2013 post. -Vault update this week will be new F7A shots. -The 2013 Veterans day hornet upgrade kit - will make it look like the Mk2 one in Squadron 42. -F8 lightning will show up in universe, it wont be Sq42 exclusive. Its role in Squadron has changed, it might become flyable in the universe (not quite a full blown sale though). -Hurricane has concept art, its sticking with Anvil, its role is still secret. -In the extended 300i trailer the fly over the Concordia. (That crashed bengal in the water?) -They just kicked off the re-look on the cutlass. -325a bed might retract differently.
