For those of you looking at entering 3.6, here's probably all you need to know about the state of the game now and for what happens in a few weeks. That's right, just 2-3 weeks before the next goodies. Not massive amounts for 3.6 but extras nonetheless, including the anticipated hover mode (VTOL) and HUD/MFD updates (to the gladius only currently). VOIP back in the game is also pretty awesome for chat to other random players; "drop your weapon or I'll shoot!"
Likely live this week, the start of ship customisations. Persistent in the alpha. Everything can be obtained in game, or you can purchase a vessel and extras with RL money. Not pay-to-win but if you happen to be well off these kinds of things can place you well ahead of the curve vs someone who isn't, SC is heavily a paper, rock, scissors and numbers game tho so I don't see it being important in any way. Pretty cool.
OFFICIAL! This Sunday 26th May at 18:00utc I'll be playing through the newly released (this Tues) game, Observation.
It is a sci-fi thriller uncovering what happened to Dr. Emma Fisher, and the crew of her mission, through the lens of the station’s artificial intelligence S.A.M. Players assume the role of S.A.M. by operating the station’s control systems, cameras, and tools to assist Emma.
Stop by Brigade's twitch channel every Sun at 18:00 to join in and help win the story.
More Star Citizen to commence as 3.6 draws closer.
Our Trial Intro section has had some extra simplifications made to it today. Mostly minor, however, the Tactical Reference Guide has been removed due to changes to formatting that Microsoft created with various updates over last year but mostly to make it so there is less chance of 'information overload' for our poor new Trials. Two items from the reference made it into our latest Handbook instead, which brings us to...
...we have an updated Handbook as of today too! Version 3.1 is now available. If you are a long-standing Trial (Dudo, Wrongway and Mac) and wish to view it, then drop me a message somewhere otherwise it will be available after your Trial when you are ready.
The new Handbook includes added sections: 'Team designations' and 'Event terminology' as well as minor simplification edits (to ensure fun gameplay) and some omissions due to recent flight system changes in 35.
