(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2014-01-05 - I hope all you citizens had a good Holiday! We here at the Citizen Star News took a bit of a break, but we are back and recharged!

Here's a few of the highlights from the break:

Letter from the Chairman: Happy New Year

- Announcing "nascent" new CIG office in Germany, details to come

- Showing off the upcoming Battledome Zero-G FPS arena



(Citizen Star News) - 2014-12-22 - Chris Roberts joins us to answer a few questions:

Recorded after the livestream apparently. Before I think it become clear there were going to be serious difficulties staying connected.

(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2014-12-19 - Live blogging, stay tuned for updates. Live on Twitch.

Mustang Commercial! Channeling Howard Hughes here. Reminds me of "The Aviator": 

Pegasus Escort Carrier, formerly known as the Panther: Null 

Big news so far:

RSI Website revamp released before the stream.

Release of 1.0 today! Just after the livestream.

(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2014-12-18 - In a surprise move, CIG announced a Public Test Universe of version the current test build of 1.0.  Soliciting signups on the RSI Forums, and then quickly closing when they received a throng of eager testers. (Perhaps more testers will be solicited after initial tests? Reminds one of the phased release of Arena Commander in the very early days.)


The PTU is a parallel set of servers (complete with it's own limited version of the new design of the website) with the new build. Volunteers have their accounts copied to the new servers, with the promise of a wipe once this is done. This allows a public test build without forcing everyone to patch onto a potentially unstable build. Good idea actually and used by other companies to excellent effect.

(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2014-12-18 - In the last episode of the year (before going on holiday hiatus).

Gladiator is in the Hangar. Ship stats updates. $5 dollar tiny-t sales on going. Saved a Wing Commander Movie Prop (a  wall from a starship).

Live stream tomorrow!
