Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released two more videos focusing on content and features coming to the growing space simulator.
We start with a look at an upcoming new vehicle, the RSI Lynx, on top of three spaceships, the Argo SRV, the Crusader Spirit, and the Apoa San'tok.yāi.
We then take a look at more features including small creatures, weights for gyms, working coffee machines, posters, procedural tools to build interiors, and the ability to spawn armor with different colors or levels of wear and tear.
Speaking of updates to planets, we get to see atmospheric updates, a security station (linked to bounty hunting), and the overhaul of Lorville on Hurston, changes coming to forests and building interior models for New Babbage on Microtech, and resort hotel platform in Horison that can be used for a variety of missions on Crusader.
You can watch it below.
The second video is all about features and improvements coming to the AI within the game, introduced by AI Director Francesco Roccucci.
In the meanwhile, Star Citizen's growing crowdfunding campaign continues to make progress and the overall tally is now at nearly $561 million ($560,984,950 at the moment of this writing) pledged from backers.
The number of registered users has also recently passed 4.4 million and it's now at 4,464,438 albeit not all of them are paying since many register accounts to access the popular free fly events that provide a chance to test the game without pledging any money. According to the latest information that creative director Chris Roberts himself shared in October 2022, 1.7 million players are actually paying customers. Of course, that number is a few months old, so it could be higher now.
The game just recently received a substantial update numbered 3.18, adding new tech and plenty of new features and content, including salvaging and persistence for items placed in the game, including starships, independently from their owner. That being said, there have been widespread issues with the new version and a 3.18.1 update is currently being tested on the Public Testing Universe.
