CitizenCon 2948 (Austin 2018) #citcon
« on: October 09, 2018, 11:26:55 AM »
Hey all,

CitizenCon is this week, Wednesday Oct 10, marking six years that we've been at this thing.

The livestream, despite prior announcements, is completely free to watch, but only through embedded Vimeo on the RSI site, requiring you to login.

I've set up a temporary #citcon channel in Discord > Star Citizen for those watching along or want to discuss things as they watch throughout the week when they get to it. Should be some fun stuff, so join for the laughs, cringes, and awesome reveals that CitCon usually provides. It should be the biggest presentation they've ever done, given that they took a rest from their GDC presentation this year.

You can also share thoughts and discussion in this thread too.

Squadron 42 is feature locked.  Pure speculation and a wild guess, but I think it will release next year at Citizencon that will be held in Manchester so that many of the actors can attend.

PU - Chris said they will stop wiping the servers and update every quarter indefinitely once server meshing is in and working.  Most likely after SQ42 release.  Source : https://youtu.be/EGzcYLBN2VU?t=1108

A couple of really good videos to watch:

A good Citizencon event this year, for sure.  The Squadron42 trailer at closing was well done.

  Ugh, the Valkyrie makes me mad.  New dropship announced this week will be flyable in the next patch.  My Redeemer was introduced 4 years ago now and still no updates or anything.   ::)

Gah, I was looking for the quote for the last few minutes but I can't locate it.   It was mentioned during one of the talks that the Redeemer was being made into a more pure gunship.

I'll keep looking for confirmation.  Depending on your expectations of the ship this could be good or bad, but yes, it would be nice to see the older ships work through the pipeline.

Edit: Not really official confirmation, but someone else caught the comment.

Those were some fun times.   in our peaks in SWTOR everyone was able to do the content they wanted to do. 

I fully expect that we will have the same opportunities in SC!

For us newbies (five years and counting! Ha!) we'll need crash courses on that was like.
