Star Citizen adds new flyable ships, highlights audio upgrades, and more

    
86

Star Citizen added the Merlin and the Scythe to its dogfighting module today, courtest of the 1.1.5 patch. The dev team also upped the number of players supported by Battle Royale and Squad Battle modes to 16 and made various balance tweaks aimed at retaining momentum, which means that combat now “skews a little further toward planning an attack and reacting against your opponent.”

Cloud Imperium also published an article about Star Citizen’s soundscape, presenting its first iteration of Wwise audio for the game and saying that it has “spent some months first migrating our content from our previous middleware solution, then refactoring and reengineering how audio is implemented within CryEngine.” It’s a bit of a tech-head article, and CIG notes that terms like pipeline, workflow, and iteration are to be expected.

Finally, CIG released a video called Game Commander which presents an informal look at creator Chris Roberts‘ day-to-day activities. You can view that after the cut.

No, I read that too somewhere so I think you’re right. The next patch will maybe be 1.1.6 and then version 1.2.0, with Star Marine. I’m not sure if they’re releasing 1.1.6 first but there’s a rumor they will.

Vikingr Viscereality Like Vis says, apparently it seemed to work on the PTU.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that the launcher 2.0 issue isn’t going to be a major problem for them.  I think I read somewhere that they are looking to get it into the client in the next patch.  Or maybe i dreamt that lol

Which again, backs up what you just said little pink one :)

I see. Then it’s a blocker for sure. But why did they say then that they’d made a new launcher? If it wasn’t ready yet then they should’ve said that – “New alpha version of Launcher 2.0, not quite ready for deployment.” or something like that.
