Star Citizen Adds Game Currency Ship Purchases

New Alpha 3.3.0t PTU.973591 Patch Notes for Star Citizen outline the latest changes to CIG's upcoming space simulation. Along with the kind of changes and bug-fixes one might expect, these also include the news that players will now be able to purchase in-game ships with in-game currency, rather than just heaps of cold, hard cash (thanks MP1ST). Here's word:
New Features
Universe

  • Activated Teach's Ship Shop functionality.

You can purchase a ship via interacting with ships on the shop floor (similar to store displays). Ships on the shop floor can be opened, explored, but not flown. Players have been given additional funds to test this feature.

Ships on the ship floor refers to the actual ship shop in the game. It’s set up like a car dealership showroom floor. So yeah you can get in and look around but there are no keys to go take it on a test drive. If you want to purchase the ship with ingame currency you simply buy it using the ingame menu system. The ship is added to you ship list and can be spawned and flown around in the game like any other. The PTU gives you enough in game funds to purchase a couple ships. So no, you don’t need additional “cold hard cash”.
