Star Citizen: An Introduction to Mining Careers

Star Citizen is a game with innumerable possibilities. As a game with no objective but to forge your own path, there are a number of things to do. The first person game of space exploration offers a number of careers to partake in. Thanks to the realism and details of the game, these careers are like no other.

One career choice in Star Citizen is mining. This career requires players to use their skill and intelligence to succeed. It's not like other mining games. Instead of repetitive button mashing and waiting, players will have to strategically work around dangerous obstacles. While combat isn't an immediate threat while players are mining, there are hazards like pockets of gas, volatile materials, and corrupt explorers. Players can become specialists, completing tasks that will keep them engaged while they reap the rewards.

Are things worse than we've been lead to believe?

This congressional squabble between budget reform bill sponsor Senator Kyle Polo (U-Angeli-Croshaw Sys) and opponent Senator Taryn Glasi (C-Vosca-Elysium Sys) hardly settles the matter, but reading between the lines we can see intractable divides and urgent crises ahead.

The results of these proceedings will likely have profound implications far beyond even the important issue of educating our next generation.

Jared "Disco Lando" Huckaby hosts a new monthly show intended to showcase fan and community talent related to Star Citizen. A focus that has been missing since Around The Verse replaced Wingman's Hangar (and even before to be honest, as WH had phased out the community videos a bit before winding down).

One thing I have to say about the Star Citizen Community: "My god, it's full of stars!" Citizen Stars that is!

(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2015-02-20 - This is Citizen Ed of Citizen Star News with “This Week In Star Citizen”, brought to you by the word Bespoke and the letters R, E and C.

Patch 1.03 Now available - Minor point release patch that fixes bugs and adjusts play balance. Check patch notes for more details.

RSI Orion is expected to go on sale today for a pledge of $325. A mini game similar to the one for the Carrack should be released in conjunction. Also expecting a Mining "Deep Dive" so a lot of focus on mining this week.

As a concept sale it will run for 10days and offer the coveted (and probably overrated) LTI (Life Time Insurance).

The 350R and M50 sale is currently wrapping up as well as the 300 series test flight promotion.

There's fantastic new inside CIG video:

CIG is working with Andy Serkis' company Imaginarium which has been pioneering in the field of performance capture. Chris had announced this a while back and so we weren't surprised by the news but this video really shows off how this will impact the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games. I found the discussion about how they are looking at approaching the Xi'An and Vanduul animations particularly intruiging.
