Star Citizen explores microTech’s moons and Anvil Carrack as the Crytek lawsuit reaches a settlement

    
10

Another week, another Inside Star Citizen. This time, we’re continuing the three-part look at development work on microTech’s moons and given a room-by-room tour of the highly anticipated Anvil Carrack. The latest look regarding Clio, Calliope, and Euterpe offers a more on-the-ground look at each moon’s surface and how they differ. Considering the area of space they inhabit, all of these moons are going to be cold and icy, but they are distinct in that one has liquid water, the other has frozen water, and the third has no water. It also illustrates how CIG’s new planetary creation tools streamlines the process of making new planets, allowing two developers to make three moons themselves versus having two people take one month to make one moon.

The video then introduces the rooms and features of the Anvil Carrack, which looks to be nearly ready for its release in update 3.8. A number of the Carrack’s features are built for future updates and functionality, like a room for ship-to-ship docking, server blades that will collect exploration data, and a cartography deck that will let operators plot courses with a more detailed map than other ships. All in all, it’s a pretty piece of hardware that begs for a crew.

In other Star Citizen news, remember the ongoing legal squabble between Crytek and Cloud Imperium Games? Gamasutra reports that the two parties have finally come to a settlement, moving jointly to end the feud and dismiss the case. We don’t yet know what the settlment will entail.

Was the settlement instanced or did they craft it?

A settlement was inevitable, glad that whole thing is done with.

I sure hope my grandkids enjoy this game, when they retire.

I’m for sure never going to live to see launch day.

For about six hours. After which you’ve seen about all there is to do, and it’s entirely a question of how much you enjoy exploring empty landscapes for pretty pictures, or grinding for money that’s going to be wiped in a month.

The game is multiplayer. Playing with others. Plenty of fun to be had. We’ve been playing a couple years and not bored.

interesting time to be monitoring this project

the Carrack will show if CIG is learning about ship design as well as provide some insight into some game mechanics , altho I expect a good portion of the ship either won’t function yet or will be implementation phase zero

it will also reveal some clues to the axiomatic ‘so overhyped it’ll never live up to expectations’, as the community’s reaction can go either way – I predict that this ship, one of the most hyper-hyped by the community, will be acceptable to all but the most vociferous. If it doesn’t please the crowds, that will be solid evidence the whole game may not live up to expectations

the roadmap will show if CIG has been holding back info due to the Crytek case, or if they’re struggling to get 42 or 4.0 any time soon™

Always good to see them finally release one of those ancient promises that people have been desiring for years.

Hope they continue that trend with the other various ships that have been waiting forever.
