The first Inside Star Citizen of 2020 is here, and it’s a compact little bundle of new information for players of the developing sandbox. In this edition, we have the first look at the process of making the moons that orbit the planet microTech and a look at the next flyable ship, the Cutlass Red rescue vehicle.
microTech will feature a new challenge for the devs at Cloud Imperium Games, as they are being asked to create three moons — Calliope, Clio, and Euterpe — within the first quarter. The team’s new V4 planetary tech engine will likely streamline the process, but the devs also seem to appreciate that there is pressure to make it happen. Inside Star Citizen looks to chronicle the process of getting microTech’s moons to the game over the next few episodes.
The video then moves on to the Cutlass Red, which effectively is an ambulance spaceship. The Cutlass Red represents the first rung of medical gameplay, with features that allow players to use the ship as a respawn location and medical beds that allow injured players to get healed. The healing mechanics appear rudimentary at the moment, but the ship could also present another unique tool for group-focused gameplay. And, yes, it has lots of flashing lights for those who want to live out their ambulance driver fantasies.
The full video, as always, is embedded below.
