Star Citizen with a few little news pieces with that’s coming up later this week… it’s pretty much all ship related.
We have had some additional details of the Invictus Launch Fleet Week & Free-Fly. That starts on the 22nd of May.
In addition to high-flying public demonstrations from the naval fleet, the galaxy’s top vehicle manufacturers often utilize the festivities to showcase the ships and armament they supply to the military. This year, official proceedings will be held at Area18, ArcCorp, with spacecraft showcases at the Bevic Convention Center and a special demonstration by the 999th Squadron.
During Invictus Launch Week, everyone has the opportunity to see some of the verse’s biggest, best, and most iconic ships up close. Different manufacturers take over every other day, so keep checking back to be inspired by everything the event has to offer.
Most ships on display are available to test-fly for free, so just select the ship you want, and take to the skies.
We don’t have any confirmations of what ships will be ON sale OR what ships will be available to see on the holoviewer or on show but not flyable BUT we do have confirmation of what is going to be free to try and what flyable ships will be shown in the halls on what days.

This Week in Star Citizen – We are going to see Near & MidTerm Plans for Ship Painting… in 3.9.1 there is a tab for ship skins/painting again AND we have recently seen CI work on Shaders and Tints that allow for simple coloring of ships with a primary, secondary and tertiary accent. What exactly we are getting in the form of near term and a player facing UI for customization and exactly how it work… we will find out VERY SOON!
We getting a Squadron 42 Update Video on Tuesday as well… It will be interesting to see if they have a new roadmap OR can give us details on schedules… what is the current plans for the Single Player Campaign and whats the current trajectory to Content Complete.
SCL Vehicle Q&A – Questions related to 3.9, 3.9.1 and 3.10 will be prioritized, but all vehicle-specific questions are welcome. Questions related to gameplay systems not exclusive to vehicles (like mining, medical, scanning, salvage, etc) should be reserved for other more appropriate shows. Friday 4:30pm UTC.
I put a poll up on Twitter asking peoples thoughts on if CI should sell the F8 Lightning, CIGs Zyloh replied with a Hobbit Meme saying NO… so that seems to me almost confirmation that the F8 will probably not be on sale during Fleet Week…
Also it was kinda confirmed again that the Civilian Javelin would come with some form of at least basic loadout and it’s parasite craft… so not just an empty hull.
There was a thead on Spectrum by TAF asking Where is iCache and Physicalised Inventory at now? CIG’s Chad McKinney replied A LOT and is still going… so I’ll save that for a video tomorrow!
