Star Citizen Free Test Fly Underway

Cloud Imperium Games announces a free-to-play event is now underway in Star Citizen. This allows everyone the chance to fly over 120 of the ships in the upcoming space exploration and combat game. Those interested in participating can sign up on this page. Here's the explanation:
The galaxy’s premier annual aerospace event, the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo (IAE), starts on Nov. 19 in Star Citizen! This year, the top ship manufacturers from across the ‘verse gather to showcase their latest flyable and concept ships to attendees. Expect six notable ship reveals at this year’s show, including the Aegis Redeemer, Ares Ion, Ares Inferno, and several special surprises – and prepare for 13 days of celebration during IAE 2951 with free test flights for over 120 flyable ships. The best part: Star Citizen will be free-to-play from Nov. 19 through Dec. 1. Whether you’re a stranger to the ‘verse or a seasoned pilot, there’s never been a better time to jump in the cockpit and experience what Star Citizen has to offer.

I've got an Origin 400i as my daily driver, and I enjoy it. Rented the Anvil Carrack today. Holy hell is that a massive one to walk through. Multi-crew is definitely justified. I land ships poorly.

Fined for not landing the Carrack properly / damaging it (maybe ?), resurrected in medbay after falling from the Corrack into the landing bay and becoming incapacitated due to my own piloting negligence.

Fun times.

Once I finish installing it I'll look ya up. Cause the "entry curve" seems to be a bit steep into this "game".

Blue, you could actually copy and paste this every week or so when the next "free test fly" is underway. Just change the date. This will save you a lot of time in the coming years until the money is gone or someone found out by whom and how this is really financed.

Make sure you install it on SSD, otherwise don't bother. If the assets can't be streamed in fast enough then you will have all sorts of bugs like that, where you fall through.
