The test build before the alpha test build of Star Citizen — a super alpha, if you will — has now opened up to all backers of the space sandbox. It’s time to kick the tires of alpha 3.11’s PTU version, which introduces a variety of the features that the Inside Star Citizen video series were discussing, including the first implementation of cargo decks, the Origin 100i series of ships, new weapons, the removal of green zones around landing areas, and inertial forces among other things.
The current PTU build also introduces several bug fixes for issues like players randomly dying while at New Babbage Plaza or Port Olisar or the Constellation not able to fly in atmo at Hurston and Lorville among other fixes. Of course, being a PTU build of the alpha, this version is going to carry a lot more issues and bugs than the normal Live version’s build would have, so not only should backers take a look through the patch notes, but they should also note the known issues list.
In other Star Citizen news, fans have learned that the assumed restriction of pledge gifting was found to not be accurate, and the weekly schedule of events will include information about the upcoming Imperator’s election this coming Thursday, with the following Friday featuring a roundtable leading in to the election on Star Citizen Live among other events.
