Star Citizen backers who have been living with remorse over scrapping a ship or package now have a way to undo that terrible mistake with the addition of a new unmelt tool. The tool is located in the back of one’s hangar.
Previously, players who “melted” ships in exchange for store credit had to petition customer service to have that action reversed. Ships were melted for various reasons, including the desire to trade up to a different ship or package as new ones came out.
CIG said that the unmelt tool isn’t working 100% properly, as buying back with store credits is not available. The studio vowed to keep working on it:
Hey guys! I’m sorry for the trouble. We will absolutely change this system, it’s just going to take a little work. We’ve spoken to the web team and there’s not an option for just turning on store credit with the current design… so it’ll take a little thinking and a new build to make right. (I know you’ve already figured this out, but there does need to be some balance; perhaps a limited number of times you can unmelt a particular package, or a limited number of unmelts per month. We’ll figure it out and report once it’s decided!)
