Star Citizen’s latest alpha patch is now available on the public test server for Concierge and Subscriber players as well as the Evocati Test Flight, and it brings additions of planetary proportions. And by that we mean, you know, an actual planet. Patch 3.3.5 introduces the planet Hurston, the game’s first planetary location, as well as its major city, Lorville, and its four moons, Aberdeen, Magda, Arial, and Ita. All of these new locations are now available for players to explore.
On Hurston, players will find numerous Hurston Mining Center outposts, as well as a number of derelicts scattered across the planet’s surface. But of course, the main focal point of the planet is its city of Lorville, which is large enough that the devs have provided a “train-style transit system” to help players move about.
It’s worth noting, however, that there’s currently a known issue with Lorville’s ATC failing to clean up ships, thus “preventing landing and ship spawn.” The official patch notes advise players to work around the bug by landing “in any available open hangar regardless of permissions,” but Reddit user HittingSmoke warns that doing so will cause players to get stuck in Lorville due to the hangar’s inability to spawn ships. As an alternative, players can instead land their ships outside of the city gates and simply hop a train into town.
For the full details on patch 3.3.5, you can check out the patch notes on the game’s official site.
