Star Citizen highlights community rover events, the group system, and atmospheric worlds

Cloud Imperium’s Sandi Gardiner and Chris Roberts are both back in the latest instalment of Star Citizen’s Around the Verse. You’ve probably noticed the shift this summer that ATV is taking; the team is now spending the first chunk of the video showing off just what the community is up, thereby demonstrating what’s actually doable in the game right now and causing would-be players to visualize themselves inside it. This episode does the same, highlighting three player events: the “cyclone challenge” in which people drive rovers over starships, the “rover fun” race, and even a rover cruise. Lotta driving of cars in Star Citizen, in other words.

On the development front, CIG says it’s working on the group system, specifically the chat channel system and the entire suite of notifications and permissions that will govern how players control their communication and friends. The devs further show off ongoing efforts to improve aiming and turret input as well as breathable world environments.

i’ve been trying to find places to spawn a rover to pick up in my ursa and take to another planet to drive somewhere on, but outside of levski i’m really not sure where to do that.

and in general what’s become obvious is a need for poi markers that respect planetary horizons so a player can decently navigate suborbital altiudes. we also need poi hot markers as well to keep a poi active after near orbital jumping.

forget poi markers, how about a real game without p2w?

Are there no surface waypoint horizon markers in the mobiGlas system or cockpit HUD view? I don’t play but I figured they’d have had something like that going for such a complex flight system.

nope. they also dissapear after you near orbital jump completely which if you make any small adjustments to your flight plan can easily lose where the intended destination is.

as it is ground vehicles are pretty much beyond counterproductive to use in a myriad of ways this one amongst them, but this one also affect suborbital flight potential.

hopefully the time link works, what i’m talking about starts at roughly 15 minutes.

The only current way to get POI markers is to fly around with quantum travel mode engaged, This also removes all the regular flight UI so it’s rather annoyingly impractical.
