That ship is gorgeous.
I dunno about anyone else, and I dunno whether it's a bug, but I can view the Four Horseman and Shard Collective ships in my hangar module. I can't enter them, but I can view the exteriors.
If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
So since the Freelancer will be up for sale for the next week or so what do you guys think the 48 million reward will be? I think it's a safe bet we will hit 46 after all.
Well, CR stated that he'd like to have both TNGS finalist ships ingame, and that it might happen one day. Perhaps we'll get the Shard ship at 46 million?
Very excited for this game. Will definitely back it when I quit being so poor. The fact that they've gathered ..45? Million so far is amazing.
Personally, I'm just going to wait and see which Organizations stick when the game comes out and which of the less popular ones rise up and become great before deciding.
With the $46 million goal passed today, Chris Roberts announced the $48 million dollar goal. Also there is a vote as to whether stretch goals should continue. I voted no since the last few really are fluff and are starting to be a bit pointless since the game is fully funded about $20 million dollars ago but yes is leading at 54% right now.
The $46 million stretch goal is one of the player-voted in-game rewards. Here are the details:
Updated Scanning Software – Chimera Communications unveiled the latest version of their SBit scanning software, also announcing a one-time free upgrade for their current and long-standing customers. The new SBit upgrade offers advanced scanning capabilities for prospecting asteroids above and beyond their baseline systems. SBit is a FIB-based system that floods the scan-zone with energy then processes the frequency of the energy reflected back, providing the operator with a composite sketch of potential ore deposits. With the new version, Chimera included an updated library of searchable frequencies as well as variable scan sizes, allowing smaller surface, higher-resolution scans. The general public will be able to purchase the update when SBit is officially released.
The winner of the last letter’s commercial poll is the Retaliator! (It was neck and neck with the Avenger until pulling away at the last minute.) As a result, it will be the next commercial we put into production following the Constellation and Cutlass. Our writers are already busy imagining how to put together a cool and different commercial for the bomber!
This brings me to the topic of stretch goals. When we started the Star Citizen campaign, the purpose of the stretch goals was to make things we had imagined but didn’t think we could afford possible: adding capital ship systems, studying procedural generation, hiring additional artists to build more ships at once and the like. The additional funding continues to expand the scope of the game and make what we’re doing possible… but it’s becoming more and more difficult to quantify that with more stretch goals (and to explain that to the rest of the world, which likes to focus only on how much money we’ve made.)
My preference would be to use these letters going forward to update you on what we’re already doing with the money; sharing additional parts of Star Citizen’s development. We would also continue to award flare and other extras to our backers as we hit milestones, whether they’re funding or schedule-related. If we discover additional technologies or come up with new elements to the game’s design we want to incorporate, we’ll let you know about those as they happen. But this is a decision for the community: let me know what you think in the poll below.

Arena Commander Multiplayer Roll-Out Begins!
250 people got multi-player rolled out to them, and in the next few days it will be rolled out to first backers. According to schedule, it should be rolled out to everyone in a few weeks.
They are rolling out the MP based off your Citizen card. If you backed early, you will get MP sooner. I doubt that everyone will get MP in a few weeks, but I'm sure it will happen in at least a couple months.
I know iv said this before but this is a space gake , so when the fuck are they gona stop rolling out ships desgned for atmospheric flight. Almost none of these ships look like spacecraft
