Last week we released Star Citizen Alpha 3.2 to the live servers, marking our second successful quarterly release. Several new and updated ships were made available for pledge along with the release, and the MISC Prospector became a permanent addition to the RSI Store.
In the 72 hours since release, we’ve seen an incredible amount of community created content submitted to the Community Hub, and we encourage you all to check it out. We browse the Hub regularly, and it continues to be a powerful source of inspiration.
Now, with the release of Alpha 3.2, we look ahead at making improvements and refining the patch, so keep hitting the servers, report bugs to the Issue Council, and hit the feedback forum to share your thoughts on a specific item or feature.
We’ve also got another opportunity for you all to get creative and compete for some pretty epic prizes in our Origin 600i Commercial Contest. The Community team has been planning a wide variety of activities for you all to participate in throughout the year and into next, with no shortage of sweet prizes. So even if this contest isn’t for you, we’ve got some exciting stuff coming, with more ways for you to leave your mark on the Star Citizen universe. (Seriously, we’re doing more contests in 2018 than EVER before!)
Lastly, let me direct your attention to this week’s Community MVP, TexasSkulls, who updated their robust Trading App to accommodate Mining in Alpha 3.2. Congratulations!
With that, let’s see what’s going on this week:
Every week on Calling All Devs, designers, engineers and other developers from our five offices around the world answer backer questions submitted on Spectrum and voted for by YOU. Today, we address questions regarding multi-tools, keybdingins, and more. Watch the full episode here. As always: You can submit your questions for consideration in future episodes of Calling All Devs here.
Tuesday will be dedicated to bringing you an all new episode of Loremaker’s Guide to the Galaxy, this time exploring the Cano System.
On Wednesday, the US offices will be closed for Independence Day, but that won’t stop the content! Look out for an explosive screenshot contest on Twitter, and the release of our Drake Vulture Q&A.
Thursday will welcome another episode of Around the Verse where we’ll take a look at the latest Star Citizen news with a project update.
If somehow Around the Verse wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, buckle in: we’ll also be releasing the Monthly Studio Report for June this Thursday as well.
Lastly, make sure to tune in on Friday for another episode of Reverse the Verse, broadcast LIVE at 12PM Pacific on our Star Citizen Twitch channel. This week, we’ll sit down with Todd Papy to discuss all things Design, so keep an eye out on Spectrum for the questions gathering thread!
We’ll see you in the ‘Verse.

Community MVP: July 2nd, 2018
We are constantly amazed by the contributions made by the Star Citizen community. Whether it’s fan art, a cinematic, a YouTube guide, or even a 3D print of your favorite ship, we love it all! Every week, we select one piece of content submitted to the Community Hub and highlight it in this section. The highlighted content creator will be awarded with an MVP badge on Spectrum and be immortalized in our MVP section of the Hub.
Don’t forget to submit your content to our Community Hub for a chance at seeing it here!
Star Citizen Trading App by TexasSkulls
TexasSkulls has created an application that records prices across all possible trading locations, then displays that information in a relevant way to help aspiring merchants maximize profit during their cargo runs. With the release of Alpha 3.2, Texas has updated the app to include Mining!
Please join us in congratulating TexasSkulls for being this week’s MVP!
