Hello Citizens! Another week, another week in review!

This was a quiet week; not even enough chatter for a DevChat episode. Still, there was some good information that came out through the standard shows. Here’s the top five bits of news for the week, followed by the rest of the highlights!

  1. Hoping for better ‘use’ prompts in 2.3 or 2.4
  2. Upcoming patches should start to address griefing and player hostility
  3. Work continues in Frankfurt on pipes, FPS mechanics, Procedural Generation, and more
  4. Feb. 14, SQ42 and Star Citizen will no longer be sold together. They will be sold ‘a la carte’, 45$ for the first one, and 15$ for the addition of the second. Anyone with a package prior to Feb. 14 retains both games.
  5. There are new ships in the concept stage that we know nothing about yet.
