I kind of like the idea that a future spaceman in the year 3000 is going to have a blanket with child's cartoon depictions of space flight in approximately 1965. I mean I know that I personally go to bed every night in my blanket featuring iconography of the empereror Basil II of the Byzantine Empire circa 995AD.



Hey, you got the same bedsheets I have! :hfive:

Hey the artist either did a good job taking out the watermark or they actually paid for it this time :)

I don't know if it was mentioned, but I'm pretty sure they did steal it.



If you look closely the cloud that's covered by the watermark is different from the second one while on the bed sheet the two clouds are the same. Several of the stars around the watermark are missing and a larger star has been added beneath Uranus.

Hope this helps :)

The spectrum thing might be a tiny bit impressive, if not for the fact CIG didn't even produce it

Contractors are the only ones who actually produce results, like Illfonic and Turbulent. In 2 weeks Chris will throw Spectrum into the garbage because it also needs to be re-done in house.

Finishing the game with everyone else's continues

I think the idea of doing old fashioned community management they want to do is more that they quickly realised they needed more people to oversee the banning of everyone they can possibly ban on Spectrum because holy poo poo anyone can see that getting out of hand quick.

'intellectual dishonesty' is one of those new terms where I always feel the person saying it is dumber than the person they're saying it to.

It's always used by some dumbo trying to sound smarter than another dumbo. Just loving say 'you are dumb' or 'you are lying to yourself' or any other much more direct phrasing.

As soon as someone says that phrase I write them off completely. It's definitely part of every 'iamverysmart' redditor's arsenal.

We had an eventful last week in Star Citizen.

On Tuesday, we launched our first Valentine’s Day sale. It was a fun way to bring some limited time ships back to the fold, and it looks like many of you took the opportunity to pick up some Origin 85x, Starfarer Gemini, a variety of Vanguards and more. As always, we appreciate your continued support of Star Citizen with your pledge dollars. You make everything we do possible.

Thursday saw an incredibly detailed look at the new Multi-Region Server support in Around the Verse that launched with Alpha 2.6.1. I’ve never seen a segment like it from another game company, and being able to share things like that is one of the many things that set’s Star Citizen apart from other crowdfunded games. ATV also had our first look at the MISC Prospector live in engine, and I speak for myself personally when I say the ship team here continues to impress me each and every month. I only saw it a couple hours before you did, and it was thrilling to see.

Friday saw the launch of our new communications platform Spectrum 0.3.0 to our LIVE testing environment. I won’t bore you with too many details with that, as we already have posts where you can learn all about our newest offering in our post here as well as the FAQ.

Also on Friday we published to our LIVE testing environment Alpha 2.6.1 with the aforementioned Multi-Region Server Support. You can find the post with all those details here.

Whew, that was a bit of a recap, but we had a lot of stuff going on last week. Here’s what’s going down This Week in Star Citizen.

Right now there are two questions threads for Subscribers-Only up on Spectrum. The first thread is for the upcoming February Subscribers Town Hall that will air next week. The subject of this Town Hall is Flight Balance changes, and our special guests will be Lead Tech Designer John Crewe and Ship Balance Designer Andrew Nicholson. Remember that Spectrum lets you upvote which questions you want to see answered, and will influence which questions get picked for the show.

In addition, there is a second thread for the next 10 for the Chairman staring Chris Roberts and Tony Zurovec, where they’ll be answering your questions about professions in Alpha 3.0, with a special emphasis on Cargo and Mining. Don’t forget that in addition to adding your questions, Subscribers can also vote on the ones they want to see answered most.

Monday’s latest episode of Citizens of the Stars includes Quantum Questions with Will Weissbaum, where he answers questions about our next concept ship, questgivers in Alpha 3.0, and which lore characters you can already read about make appearances in Squadron 42. It also sees Tyler Witkin introduce our third Community Manager, Tyler Nolin. I know… I KNOW… Two Tylers… I’m doomed.

Wednesday and Thursday this week bring another edition of Loremaker’s Guide and Around the Verse, respectively. Remember, that while many of our shows are a fun behind-the-scenes look at our community, our lore, or our programming, Around the Verse is your place for the latest development updates each and every week.

Then on this Friday, end the week with Tylers and I on another edition of Happy Hour, where we take an hour at the end of our week to sit back and hang out with the Star Citizen community and developers.

Additionally, this Friday will also see the launch of our first concept sale of 2017, the Anvil Hurricane. Check back on Friday for the official reveal, and the subsequent Q&A thread on Spectrum.

With that, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
