Star Citizen’s fans aren’t shy about offering their help with the project… and we’re always happy to see what you put together! Point of fact: the distinctive Wingman’s Hangar theme was composed by a fan!
Matthew Fossa is the man behind the music and we’ve put together a short interview about the piece. He’s also provided a special treat: a live recording of the theme by the Pensacola Orchestra!
Today we’re sharing more of the cool ship art that Star Citizen fans are constantly creating in the Modding forum. Star Citizen will support a wide variety of mods on the player run servers, so keep building your own spacecraft!
The “Whiplash” racer seems like it would be a a speedy addition to the game…
The “Vortex” interceptor has a cool backstory with an awesome in-universe teaser:

$10 Million Clarification
On Monday, we announced that a fan named Danil Guschin was the one who pushed us over the $10 million mark. On further investigation, we aren’t sure: there were two pledges at exactly the same time and because of how our system works it gave us Danil’s name first… but on reviewing the data, Count-Farat from the Netherlands is just as likely to be the citizen who pledged us over the limit! We will make sure that he also receives one of the first Avenger spacecraft off of the production line.
