Happy Wednesday, everyone!
Every two weeks, we accompany the Roadmap update with a brief explanatory note to give you insight into the decision-making that led to any changes. This is part of an effort to make our communications more transparent, more specific, and more insightful for all of you who help to make Star Citizen and Squadron 42 possible.
With that said, let’s go ahead and dive into this week’s Roadmap Roundup!

Notable Changes for December 13, 2023
Replication Layer Update
As some of you may have seen, testing for the upcoming separation of the Replication Layer from game servers is underway. With additional testing required as well as fixes and updates coming in the 3.22 branch, we’re moving this card to the 3.22 column as we continue to make progress on this important update.
The following cards have passed their final review, therefore we are toggling their status to Committed:
Salvage – Structural
Implementing the ability to transform large chunks of metal salvaged from ships into a refinable material. This will use the systems aboard salvage ships like the Vulture and Reclaimer.
Inventory – Cargo Containers
The feature will allow players to store items and smaller cargo containers in larger cargo containers.
Building, balancing, and implementing Aopoa’s medium fighter, the San’tok.yāi, into the game.
Building, implementing, and balancing Origin’s hover bike, the X1, as a flight-ready vehicle.
Origin X1 Velocity
Building, implementing, and balancing Origin’s racing bike, the X1 Velocity, as a flight-ready vehicle.
Origin X1 Force
Building, implementing, and balancing Origin’s pathfinder bike, the X1 Force, as a flight-ready vehicle.
We’ll have a quick update shortly after 3.22.0 goes live to make sure Release View reflects the release into the new year. We’ll be back with roadmap updates on February 7, 2024, once further planning for the year has been completed. Thanks, everyone!
