Ship customization rolled out to PTU testers this week as part of Star Citizen’s alpha 3.5.1, but CIG didn’t waste much time pushing it live for more backers Wednesday. Worth noting is that CIG has been soliciting feedback on the ship customization tools offered in this leg of the alpha; specifically, the devs want to hear about pricing, cosmetics, loadout kids, and website flow. A great deal of the feedback thus far has focused on pricing and the perception that everything is way too expensive, which was our general reaction earlier this week too.
Notably, MOP reader DK alerted us to the fact that this patch revived individual store inventories, meaning that it’s possible that high-demand items can sell out from specific vendors. Economy!
Meanwhile, the latest episode of Inside Star Citizen this week covers the patch and ship customization, so if you don’t want to fuss with the test client, you can just watch that for the basics. Plus there’s a segment on the flight model and the Origin 890 Jump.
