Star Citizen Public Test Universe for All Backers

The Roberts Space Industries website announces the Public Test Universe is now available to all backers of Star Citizen, Cloud Imperium's space combat game. Here's word:
Get ready to join the Public Test Universe (PTU.) During the lead up to Arena Commander 1.0, we gave a limited number of backers access to what we call the PTU, a version of the game that offers experimental versions of upcoming patches. Starting today, all Star Citizen backers have access to the PTU and with it access to test a build of Arena Commander 1.0.1.

Please note that the PTU is not for the faint of heart: unlike standard Arena Commander, you’re one of the first people testing a new build which can often be unstable or otherwise non-functional. If you’re serious about helping us test Star Citizen, accessing the PTU and reporting bugs on the forums is one of the biggest services you can provide… but if you’re looking for a clean dogfight, you may want to stick to the standard build. You can report bugs discovered in the PTU here, or provide feedback on the PTU itself here.

Sounds promising doesn't it? Gee, it should only take them a decade at this rate to get a basic game out the door. Shades of DNF.

I thought Arena Commander 1.0 is a public test for backers.
So now you can test the patches for the test?

Maybe I don't understand this but now backers can test the patches that are available to (only a selected) everyone before they become available to everyone?
Isn't Arena Commander out to test and send feedback to the devs? It is not to play and enjoy the "game" or is it?

In 2015 Webster's Dictionary is going to add the phrase "Clusterfuck", and the definition is just going to be "See Star Citizen development plan".
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.

Ooh, this will be interesting. I'll give this a whirl.

I'm not quite sure what this is...can we (finally) fly around in space? Or is it another version of Arena Commander, but with pvp?

Updating it now. 4gb to go...

Another Star Citizen post for the haters to gather around.
How can there be so much vitriol towards a game that someone feels they have to spew on it every time there is a post?
What wasted emotion...

Yea I know it's pretty funny that guys like spectralmeat come on every single SC post to talk shit about it and then I remember the one time I sorta copied that attitude with ED(which I regret and apologized) and then Nin comes in and chides me for it.

Nin how bout chiding these guys once in a while too? or it seems you enjoy doing it as well with 1 liners and then calling out others? =\
Or Spectralmeat who said "just ignore the trolls"
So are you calling yourself a troll ? Cuz you do this on every SC post

Well I am sorry if commenting on alpha testing patches for an alpha test counts as talking shit about the game to you.
Feel free to ignore my comments if it bothers you that much

I'm not the ignore type, so that's fine. Just pointing out... not sur how to reply cuz your post history is quite clear... and if you think the way you phrase things with regards to SC isn't talking shit at all, well I doubt I can help (in SC threads, in ED threads etc. you post about SC in almost every ED thread that came up.. You telling me you were saying positive things?)

Yeah, that is my first thought as well.

Saw the title and was like, "Awesome, they've got the larger world up and running and now we can....test the next Arena commander patch!? WTF!?"

This is an agonizingly long wait. They seem to be able to deliver content just in time to keep me interested but I would like them to deliver something that feels complete in arena commander very soon. Even if it's just two or three ships I think that would be better to have the full polished experience on those ships instead of the dozen different things we have now all in various stages of development.

It is what it is. Tim Schafer described game development as tons of little projects all coming together at the end and nothing ever feels done until suddenly it's all done. (or something like that) So this is how it's supposed to look I guess.

I just want to fly my ship around space and not feel like I'm in some battle arena. I want to land on space stations, mine asteroids, load and unload cargo and go launch my Merlin and scout around. That's in the next patch...RIGHT!?
