Letter from the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries website
that the crowd-funding campaign for Star Citizen
has hit the $37 million
mark. They outline the Tanga System this goal unlocks, reveal the $38 million
goal as an "unexplored natural wonder," and open the voting for their $39
million goal, calling this "the final system stretch goal." Also,
Roberts Space Industries announces
the launch of the first web-based
Organization system for the upcoming combat and exploration game. They outline
how this will work, its new live chat system, organization rules, and more
(thanks jimnms, who expresses hopes that someone forms a Blue's News group).
Here's word on the goals for this:
This is only the beginning of the
Organization system. Cloud Imperium remains dedicated to creating an environment
for Star Citizen’s squadrons, clans and guilds to flourish, and we have
extensive long-range plans for enhancing Organizations as we build towards their
presence in the persistent universe. Multiple org membership, visual
organization charts and fleet views are among the features we are working on
Our goal with the Organization system, like the Hangar and Dogfighting modules,
is to allow the Star Citizen community to get a foot in the door and start
experiencing (and expanding) the Star Citizen ‘verse as soon as possible.
Remember: organizations isn’t just about letting you group together with friends
and gamers, it’s about backers beginning to shape Star Citizen’s lore!
