This Week in Star Citizen – March 11, 2024

Hello everyone, xē’suelen

Are you familiar with the story of Nick Croshaw in the ‘verse?

Our lore (written by Dave Haddock and our fantastic narrative team) includes a rich history of our ‘verse, which gives our games a great depth, immersion, and realism. One of the key milestones of human achievement within our lore, is “First Jump Day”, when legendary Human astrophysicist and pilot, Nick Croshaw, discovered and navigated the first Jump Point, on the 10th of April, 2271, and became the first Human to visit a planetary system beyond Sol.  

Eventually that system was named Croshaw in his honor – his journey was described as “the Jump that changed the course of Humanity”, and led to the star-faring future we depict in Star Citizen and Squadron 42.

You might wonder why we’re telling you this story today – well, a little ahead of the historic date of April 10th, over the weekend we had our own First Jump Day celebration! We opened another Tech Preview channel release of our Server Meshing technology to our Evocati testers. For this test, which focused on both Server Meshing and the Replication layer technology, we opened our first functioning Jump Gates, allowing players to test traveling between 2 systems for the first time in our history! During the test, it is also worth highlighting we achieved 350 concurrent players in a single shard (eg a Replication Layer connecting 2 servers), setting a new record!

It’s a great achievement for our Star Citizen teams, with CTG, Development, and Publishing all working together in concert, to make the impossible possible! Of course though, none of this would truly be possible without each and every one of YOU! 

We have tracked who the first player to navigate a Jump Point was, which we’ll share later this week – but to all of you who took the time to jump in and test, thank you!

In other news, Jumptown ends today, but if you’re missing the thrill of PvP, we encourage you to watch the latest episode of Inside Star Citizen, as we explore many of the FPS-combat-related changes coming in Alpha 3.23. We’ll answer your questions in our Friday show, Star Citizen Live, at 9am PDT / 4pm UTC.

Last week, we published the latest news from our development teams in February’s PU Monthly Report alongside the bi-weekly Roadmap Roundup.

We also rewarded some of our top testers in our Test Universe Champions post, celebrating those who contributed relentlessly to Star Citizen Alpha 3.22 through the game itself, Spectrum, and Issue Council!

Now, let’s see what’s going on this week:

Operation Shamrock

A special unit must retrieve documents from the wreckage of a crashed spacecraft, but will everything go as planned? Sometimes, it’s more a matter of luck than skill!

Check out this wonderful new video from Wailander on the Community Hub.
