Star Citizen Livestream Details

Greetings Citizens,

First of all, we would like to thank you all for the incredible support regarding the Dogfighting announcement. The response from the community has been more than we could have expected; your appreciation for this project was never in question, and we are impressed that you have a genuine understanding of how game development works. Thank you, sincerely, for your support.

On Friday, Star Citizen developers in Austin, Manchester and Los Angeles will be joining you for a multipart live stream event in order to share our current status. We would like to take questions from the community for the event, and have established three forum threads to draw from. If you have a question for the team, please post it there before the event!

The show will open at 11 AM CST (-5 GMT) with Chris Roberts and the team in Los Angeles. Then we’ll move across the pond to check in with the team at Foundry 42. They’ve just moved in to their new office and are eager to show you around… and share the current status of Squadron 42.

The stream will continue with the epic 50th episode of Wingman’s Hangar and then Hangar Q&A with the team in Austin. It concludes with Chris Roberts and the LA team demonstrating Dogfighting and answering some of your burning questions!

Rocket Launch Tuesday Visible from US East Coast

Nighttime Rocket Launch Tuesday Visible from US East Coast –

NASA and the U.S. military will launch a record payload of 29 satellites from a Virginia spaceport Tuesday night (Nov. 19) on a mission that could create a spectacular sight for sky watchers along the U.S. East Coast, weather permitting.

The U.S. Air Force launch will send an Orbital Sciences Minotaur 1 rocket into orbit from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility and Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island, Va., sometime during a two-hour launch window that opens Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. EST (0030 Nov. 20 GMT).

The nighttime launch could light up the sky for millions of observers along a wide swath of the Eastern Seaboard, and could be visible from just northeastern Canada and Maine to Florida, and from as far inland as Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky, depending on local weather conditions, according to NASA and Orbital Sciences visibility maps.

Original T-Shirts and UEE Patches Are Back

Just a heads up guys. The SC/SQ42 T-shirts and UEE Patches are back up for sale for a Limited time ONLY on the RSI web site!

TeamSpeak on The Forum

I have also just placed a Forum Post under “The CREW Cantina” Section that you can click to find out our TeamSpeak Status from on Website. This will work for now until I can find a more direct access to the TeamSpeak Server Status that can be placed on the Forum itself.

TeamSpeak Stats Available

I just put up a new Page (TeamSpeak Stats) on the NavBar, when you click on that link a new page will open with the current stats of who is currently on the TeamSpeak Server. This will save everyone from needing to open the TS Client and of course when you are away from your PC. For those that don’t use the Smartphone app.

There is still no way to do this presently on the FORUM. But I am still investigating this option.
