Star Citizen shows off a new contextual UI element, new weapons, and more of its prison

Even though the novel coronavirus has caused most of the folks at CIG to work from home, the Star Citizen devs are still kicking out their regular update pieces, such as this week’s usual video update, which is granting players a look at a new radial UI element arriving in alpha 3.9 that should make contextual actions a lot easier to get to.

For the most part, many of the things a player character is capable of doing is done by keybinds or through some form of nearby interaction known only by holding the F key. With the Inner Thought UI element, these functions are now in a radial UI. It’s here that players will find a number of categories for functions like emotes, interaction options for the environment, and even some functionality for ship functions like mining mode, scan mode, or other ship systems. Players will even get to rebind certain actions by right-clicking over the given action and selecting “rebind.”

The video then went into a sprint report, which granted a preview of several other things like more looks at the Klescher Prison location and the suit criminal players will be required to wear, a new SMG, pistol, and a sniper rifle that shoots freakin’ electricity at people, higher level terrain maps, and even a detailed look at a location in Squadron 42.

I suspect the CIG work-from-home trajectory may allow them to get lots more progress, since Emperor Roberts won’t be able to micro-manage as much.

Wouldn’t be shocked, and it’s not even a dig at CIG either … I know my wife (engineer) is working a bit more than her normal hours and is getting FAR more done as her supervisor/manager/*random person* aren’t able to just stop by her desk and interrupt her constantly.

The Inner Thought system is really one of the coolest things about Star Citizen, and these improvements sound nice, especially the ability to map keybinds to Inner Thought actions on the fly.

That was a lot of information packed into an 11 minute video. I really like it when they do these. They are introducing hunting for ‘actual’ space whales! How ironic. They turned a meme into actual gameplay.

I am beginning to guess that schlag left after the CU drama. This would be too tasty to pass up I think.

Camelot Unchained drama? I must have missed it.

i really liked all the stuff they showed. the space whales are way too on the nose for me lol, but i liked star wars rebels just as much as the next guy so i’ll pretend they’re not directly poking fun at their whales.
