The latest stretch goals for Star Citizen have been posted as fundraising has surpassed the thirty-eight million dollar mark. Goals include the Cano System, a single inhabited planet similar to Earth among three others. In addition, Chris Roberts announced that a poll to select the final star system was too close to call and, as a result, both systems will be included in the game.
Cano System is home to a G-Type Main Sequence Star that’s almost identical to Earth’s. Of the four planets in the system, only one is inhabited: Carteyna. Located on the edge of habitable zone, Carteyna is a classic waterworld. Fortunately, its planetary axis constantly keeps the northern hemisphere away from the sun, which allowed for the water to freeze into the landmasses used as the initial landing zones in 2587. Multiple attempts have been made to try to convert the thick atmosphere into something breathable, but the process never seemed to stick. In fact, over the years, every time there’s a new technological development in geo-engineering, they test it out here on Carteyna only to yield the same result.
