Hey all,

Would anyone recommend a 32GB RAM while playing the game? I currently have a 16GB memory and everytime I play Star Citizen, it always takes the remainder of what's left available.

By default, my system takes about 5.5GB on my RAM space. Would you guys recommend it?

Personally I am running 32, but that is work related. If you would feel better to have more ram sure go for it. But I wouldn't expect to see much difference on SC or any other game. 

Now it depends if you are running DDR3 or 4, if it is 3 and you intend to keep the mobo/cpu for longer sure buy the extra ram now that is cheaper as the 4 is bloody expensive.

Depends on multiple factors, how many slots the mobo has , CPU+Chipset and the OS if it is 32/64-bit. Win10 Home support up to 128GB while EDU/PRO/Enterprise 2TB for x64, while x86 (32-bit) supports up to only 4GB on all.

Windows 7 is the same on x86 but on x64 Basic is 8GB , Home Premium 16Gb and PRO 192GB.

Windows 8 128GB , PRO/Enterprise 512GB for X64

I have 32GB, because back in the day when I built this PC (specs on my Twitch page), that way I could fit the entire Planetside 2 game in a RAM disk, in addition to having plenty left over for the game itself.

I don't know if I should be impressed or depressed that Star Citizen uses this much space, let alone how much it takes up on the hard drive.

      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. 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!
      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.

      Greetings, citizens!
      The wave of the 3.0-hype has ended, no one doesn't making hundreds of timelapses anymore. So, that means whitch I can finally make my own timelapse!
      One of my latest videos was an experiment - I tried to use focus and to achieve a Tilt-shift effect. With varied success.
      Since then, CIG has released patch 3.1, which has made some visual improvements of lighting and the planet generation system, as shown in my last video, and, most importantly for me - the camera sway was almost removed, which can simplify the creation of timelapse video. And since I have long wanted to make my own timelapse video, now is the better time for that.
      Therefore, I present you my new video!
      Almost 300 gigabytes of records, 31 scenes, two weeks of recording and editing, 2 hours of render. I tried to do it qualitatively and difficult - that it not to be a trash and didn't look boring. Maybe it's the Best God Damn Star Citizen Timelapse Video Ever, or maybe it's the usual middle level - it is you who must decide!
      Bonus: this video is made in 4K and with 60 fps - so turn on yours 4K TVs and enjoy it!

      Not sure anyone else here is interested, but Big JR (the guy who built the space suit locker 
      and the Sabre model
      , is back with CIG sanctioned custom furniture for sale.  It's worth noting (@Sub-Commander @Media Officer) that they will do org livery.  Interested parties can contact Kals@jrfabrication.co.uk regarding custom colors / liveries.  I reached out to them regarding the desk and suggested an end compartment for the opposite end that's a mini fridge.   They are a fan of the idea.

      They don't currently ship outside the EU/UK but are considering delayed orders until they can fill a shipping container in order to lower shipping costs.

      I want this desk.

      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!
