Star Citizen reaches $22 million – Hangar updated and new goal13 Oct 2013
Another week comes to a close and Star Citizen has raised more cash taking the funding to a whopping $22 million.
The new goal means that the facial capture system is being added to the game.
- Facial Capture System. We’ve researched a technology that uses a series of cameras to capture real heads and import them into the game. This will let the team more easily create a variety of realistic characters. In addition, the technology is mobile enough to allow us to take it on the road and capture select fans during special events! You can learn more about this technology at Infinite-Realities.
A new goal has been revealed for $24 million, a galactic transport system just in case you don’t have a ship. Ship items can also be transported between hangars with this new feature.
- Public Transportation System – Need to get from one place to another but don’t have a starship? We’re building a galactic transportation system. You can travel via transport from system to system in Star Citizen and even ship items (like a ship you need move to another hangar.) With this stretch goal, we’ll expand this system: star liners, long range transports, charter ships and flyable shuttles!
The CitizenCon event, which was really a celebration for the development team, looks like it will also be expanded through the additional funds with Chris Roberts saying they want to make it a “bigger event”.
A new Hangar update is also now live and there’s quite a few new features including buggy ramps, billboard video screens, Privateer outfit swap, the fish tank, Avenger ship, Aurora LN ship and the buggy passenger seat. There’s also a few fixes for good measure.
In case you missed other updates on Friday there was the bomber reveals and the Aurora LN which you can see in the video below.
