Latest Update Brings Alpha 2.0 Closer to Reality

Latest Update Brings Alpha 2.0 Closer to Reality - MMORPG.com

The latest development update has been posted on the Star Citizen site that gives backers and fans a look at what the various teams have been doing. According to the post, the first-person universe will be something that has not been done before in the history of video games" and that goal doesn't always go as smoothly as envisioned, often times requiring a bit more time under the hood to reach the ultimate goal. Case in point is the Lead FPS Programmer suffered a broken wrist and is out of commission for a week or two.

While clearly set back a bit, the team has made some improvements and additions to the game:

The new ship UI screens we posted footage were very warmly received last week which is exactly the kind of feedback that really gets a buzz around the office and makes our community such a great group of people to work for. We are never totally sure on how something will be received until it’s out there so that was certainly a good way to dip our toe in the water with this one to check the temperature with you guys. We have now finished up the last of the gameplay code hooks so that is in full test now to make sure that clicking all of those buttons will actually do something! Please note that the sections that are labelled as “System Offline” in the video will not be functional in this release but will be coming in subsequent patches as we iterate on it.

Head over to the Star Citizen site to check out the full letter and list of works-in-progress.
