Star Citizen Attempt Boarding An Idris…

Welcome to some more This Week In Star Citizen… looking at what’s coming over the next few days in this wonderful space game… there is a focus on Alpha 3.23’s Distribution Centers and Player Interaction this week… but we are also going to be talking about CIGs Idris Combat & Boarding Playtest AND expectations of Personal Hangars in 3.23.

This Week In Star Citizen

Red Festival is well underway, with tidbits galore to ring in the coming of the Year of the Dog in 2954. Greet the new year decked out in new Auspicious ship liveries, earn a limited-time Red Festival Challenge Coin by dominating in the special new mode in Arena Commander, or engage in the time-old tradition of finding and turning in red envelopes for fun and profit. Plus, visitors of Stanton during the Red Festival will receive a commemorative 2954 Year of the Dog envelope to display in their hangars for years to come. Take advantage of the currently ongoing Free Fly event and invite your friends to join you in celebrating the end of the lunisolar year. Our Red Festival Referral Bonus runs through February 26, and you and the friends you recruit can usher in the new year with a Drake Dragonfly along with a special-edition Red Festival armor and weapon package!

Love is also in the air, and we hope your Coramor weekend was spent with your co-pilot of choice (or favorite partner-in-crime) painting the ‘verse pink and black! If you took off for a rendezvous or two in-game, don’t forget to send your best screenshots to the 2954 First Date in the ‘Verse Screenshot Contest by the 15th for a chance to win some lovely prizes. Head over to the Coramor 2954 landing page for details on the contest and more.

Lastly, if you’re in Paris, France, or Brussels, Belgium, or Boise, Idaho, in the United States this weekend, you can look forward to hanging out with other enthusiasts and talking about all things Star Citizen over your favorite ice-cold beverages at Bar Citizen events. Visit for details on upcoming events near you.

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

This Tuesday, the Narrative Team will make Whitley’s Guide on the Anvil Valkyrie available, first appearing in an issue of Jump Point. In an effort to predict the future of warfare, Anvil spent years compiling data and fed it into a supercomputer. The results inspired Anvil to develop the Valkyrie.

On Wednesday, we’ll be reposting last week’s Squadron 42 Monthly Report newsletter as a Comm-Link.

Thursday’s episode of Inside Star Citizen is our final look at Distribution Centers before their intended arrival in Alpha 3.23.

This Friday, Star Citizen Live returns with a Q&A show with members of Team Cian answering your questions about EVA, PIE, and Default Item Actions. Join us on Twitch at 16:00 UTC / 8 am Pacific and don’t forget to get your queries in before the broadcast. You’ll also receive our weekly RSI Newsletter delivered to your inbox.

Loads of players turned up DTox and Avneger One were streaming it… the request from CIG was to assault and board the ship… basically take control of it.

Unfortunately it got blown up by players rather than disabled or boarded…

They spawned another one and it got blown up again.

People might be thinking… well this is the reason we can’t have nice things

Thought it was nice to see another perspective… expect some more tests… I am hoping to catch one!

It’s an interesting one as well… if some people are in a boarding action… how do you stop others from killing the ship they’ve boarded?

It’s an enemy ship… should they get a criminal rating or warning when attacking?

Couldn’t people use human shields onboard their ships?

Is it only a problem because soft death is a placeholder for resource networks and engineering?

Instanced vs Personal Hangars

I got a message through that seems to explain this but take it with a pinch of salt as I can’t verify if it actually came from a relevant dev…
