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.

This game will blows minds. Might not be until 2020, but it is coming.

2020? You are beyond optimistic, my friend. Try 2040+

Truly, 2020, you'll see -- it's pretty close with 3.3, coming together.

Just need the systems they will release in 2019, and a "we won't wipe the server and your ships / money / gear" late beta and people will flock.

Guessing summer/fall 2020

^ lol @ cultist

The likes of you are always funny. I remember when you guys said, like in 2013, that a 2015 release as promised by Roberts wouldn't be a problem at all. Back then they "just" needed to get the systems running and the content pipeline going and then the content was going to basically produce itself.

The same argument keeps coming back again and again as we can see from your post. Recently procedural generation was the holy grail of the SC cultists like "oh yeah when they get proc gen running then the game will be done in no time". Well, yeah... almost.

But, hey, keep believing in your great shepherd Mr. Christ Roberts. Oh yes. He will make it all come together with 3.3... or maybe with 3.5 or maybe 5.3 or maybe 8.6 or maybe 12.4 but it will happen. I mean, they "just" need to make the whole game is all they have to do. It's easy!
