Release Date for Alpha

So I thought originally Alpha would be in 18 months. Now I'm hearing 12 months. Is there a estimated month or day for it yet that you guys have seen?

Yeah that's where I saw 12 months but didn't know if there was a more specific date yet on the forums from a device or anything that I may have missed?

The question that Still floats around is when does the countdown for the 12 month alpha start? At the end of the Funding Campaign, or 10/10/10?

I think its more like a "When its done™" than a specific date. Programming things a very complicated and reaching a exact date in twelve months would need a hell of a lot management. I guess Chris is saving all the struggle and devs away his things until they are done the way he wants.

It should be done properly, I'd rather wait an extra month for a few less game breaking bugs. I'm not sure how many of the people that pledged will understand that the alpha will not be the finished game. So the alpha should actually be a developed beta instead. But time will tell.

      The 2.6.1 patch notes have been posted to Reddit.  This means its safe to say the Avacados are beating on it right now.
      https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/comments/5ssabq/ptu_261_patch_notes/
      Some notable points:
      "The Super Hornet has received a full visual update, encompassing art, animation, damage states, and VFX."
      "Pilot facial idle animations have been added for all ship variants!"
      "In this initial release it (Mega Map) will only be enabled for single player maps (Hangars and single-player Arena Commander), but we will be expanding this to include multiplayer maps in a future release."
      Good news, all those classy VIP's don't have to use the bucket anymore.  "Constellation Phoenix - The toilet can now be accessed."
