Star Citizen shows off Lorville business district for 3.4.0 as alpha 3.3.7 goes live

Sean Tracy and Steve Bender helm this week’s Star Citizen Around the Verse, and the dev update focuses on the culture and business district of Lorville – specifically, the inside. You’re surely used to the grand sweeping Coruscant-style exterior landscapes, but here the developers discuss how they manipulate the player through interior environments – for example, how they move you through claustrophobic areas to then blow your mind with spectacular cavernous ones. There’s also a detailed examination of how a major NPC is skinned.

Alpha 3.3.7 rolled out to backers this week as well, with the first stages of 3.4.0 not far behind (thanks, leakers!); 3.3.7 isn’t groundbreaking, but it does tweak AI and fix AI ships in particular. 3.4.0, as delivered to the Evocati, includes the business district as previewed in ATV.

Make sure you’re following along with MOP’s Chris over the next couple of weeks as he dives into Star Citizen in our Choose My Adventure column! MJ and Chris are teaming up for a Star Citizen stream this very afternoon; you can join them on OPTV at 2 p.m. EST.

mining and hauling working better, missions and beacons and a lot of other stuff still borky, basic improvements in FPS and much more stable now, it won’t be ready for primetime until the flight model gets updated and the back-end stuff like OCS is implemented

At the average burn rate for that many employees, Star Citizen will have gone through about half the total money they’ve raised by this time next year.

Better go buy more ships…..

my buddy snelly has been playing with me as we discovered he no longer needed 16gb+ of ram to run the game. he’s really enjoying it and learning it quickly.

i’ve also been getting my career as a part time miner started, while jumptown drug running is providing ample pvp opportunities as well as highlighting the risks of high profit margin drug smuggling – while some folks ply their trade in protecting the trade lanes.


my first time using the ejection function on purpose.


some bad ass jumptown related pvp
