Star Citizen Hits $21M; Video & Hangar Patch Released

The Roberts Space Industries website reflects the continuing flurry of activity surrounding Star Citizen, the upcoming space combat game that looks to return to the glory days of games like Wing Commander and Privateer. The game's crowdfunding campaign is hurtling along, and has surpassed the $22 million mark, triggering the new stretch goals of a Facial Capture System and a Public Transportation System. They add: "In addition to this immersion-enhancing design upgrade, we’re also going to dedicate some of the additional funding to making next year’s CitizenCon a bigger event! Thank you for making this all possible. Keep spreading the word!" Here's the summary of the latest happenings, which includes the release of a patch for the game's hangar module and the commercial for the 2944 Aurora:

Two pieces of great news: after a long night of hard work, the promised Hangar patch is available! You can check out the Avenger, the privateer outfit, the Aurora LN, the fish tank… and a few other surprises. The second piece of news is that in just four days, we’ve hit $22 million in crowd funding! Between the hangar patch, the bomber reveals, the Aurora LN, CIG Manchester and the start of The Next Great Starship, this has been a big anniversary week… and the best is yet to come!

If you remember, the Falcon had probably minimal shields, didn't look like much, but was VERY FAST and quite maneuverable for her size (she could almost out fly tie fighters).....Also i'll have to make some hidden cargo areas....for hiding myself if I get boarded *Cue the Darth Vader theme* DUM DUM DI DUM DUM DI DUM DUM DI DUM

I don't want to go all super nerd on you but the Falcon had ridiculously good shielding along with Imperial cruiser class hull plating (ablative armour). In almost any game system which limits the ability for a player to pack tech on a ship, it would be considered WTFOP

I gotta say though, there is some sort of divine madness surrounding this project. The TOG (The Older Gamers, I'm a member) 'fleet' consists of 116 members, 260 ships including 4 fucking Idris corvettes (3x P and one of the limited M variants) and a Vanduul Scythe (also limited)...

We're looking at a combined 'investment' of 30+ grand so far (the Rear Admiral pack with the Idris P runs 5,000 USD...), and every new ship released get's quite a few purchases.

I've felt burnt before dropping a couple of hundred on a lifetime sub for The Secret World. There's no way in hell I would drop 5 fucking thousand on a virtual spaceship for a game I don't even know if I like yet..
