Inside Star Citizen offers a look at its next in-development spaceship

Every ship in Star Citizen gets people where they need to go, obviously, but what if you want to deposit several people at once into a particularly dangerous area? That’s where the Prowler APC comes in, which is the next ship being developed by RSI and previewed in this week’s video digest.

The Prowler is a dropship of Tevarin design, a bird-like race that was brought to near extinction and assimilated after two wars with the United Planets of Earth. That avian aesthetic is being considered in the Prowler’s overall interior look, which features a variety of struts that look like a forest of trees or pieces of straw in a nest. The Prowler also features some other neat visual bits as well, such as its control stick which moves in all directions on all axes and a switch that will open up all eight side doors to let passengers out at the same time.

The Prowler is currently in a whitebox stage, with a lot of work still to be done in terms of building out sections of the ship, making unique textures, and applying lighting among other things. In short, don’t expect the Prowler to arrive too soon.

The video also gives a deep dive into a number of tools the devs at RSI use to build out Star Citizen, which might be interesting for the armchair developers out there. On a program note, don’t expect another Inside Star Citizen video next week owing to next week’s CitizenCon.

I can only imagine the shame people feel for working there. I’ve never stooped so low for money and I hope I never have to.

Well to be fair, that was a little less than half the presentation of the episode. The other half was talking about some of the tools they have developed in house to make game content and showcasing how some of these tools work. It wasn’t just a concept ship commercial (which BTW I hate when they do that too.

What does SC has more, conceptual starships or visit-able planets?

I’d snarkily postcomment image
…but does anyone really even give a shit any more?

Short answer is: Yes
More new backers are joining at every single patch. CIG keep delivering patch while Publishers keep delivering unfinished copy/paste of games or brand new they have to rework from ground (Anthem to name the last one).

Business as usual :)

Sure Joe. Are they paying you to astroturf propoganda or is it still more or less just your hobby?

To whom are you referring to @Styopa? A guy who is coming to leave its usual negative propaganda or a link pointing to the wrong picture?
The official good guy is here: honesty and trustworthy incarnated? :)

if i were the community at large id be all in on all players banding together to tell them no new ships, only work on the game. we’ll buy more ships when the game is out of beta. game’s been funded a million times over. wake up sheeple.

The concept sale for the Prowler happened back in 2014 if I remember right. It’s just taken them five years before they finally got around to building it. While I agree the game has a big enough variety of ships on the roster and I’d love to see them focusing on the game mechanics more, they still need to build the ships they’ve already sold, so videos like this are still very much relevant.

Also, you say the game’s been funded a million times over, but they spend the money as fast as they get it, so they don’t have a huge reserve or anything. If you look at the financials they released last year, they end every year with only about $15M in reserve, which is only enough to keep the lights on for 4-5 months. They actually need to keep selling ships if they want to avoid going out and venture capitalists to keep them afloat.

It originally sold for $425. The “alien tax” is ridiculous. It takes a page right out of Apple’s playbook.
