Top news this week: v1.1.0 30+GB patch and it's troublesome path to the PTU

James Pugh warned us on RtV thursday that v1.1 had been coming in "hot" as in lots of QA issues due to many changes to the under the hood: 64 bit floats for map addressing, new damage systems, REC, new weapon mount system and new skeleton for animations.

Weekly wrap up; Show notes for broadcast on The Base Friday Night Show.

As a note... a difficult show. We were all dealing with the passing of Leornard Nimoy and a little low energy. So apologies if we are not at our best.

But there are great things going on in Star Citizen and worth checking into. Show notes beyond the jump...

(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.
