Star Citizen reaches $34 million in funding – New locations are next7 Dec 2013
It’s taken a couple of weeks but it’s finally arrived, the $34 million goal for Cloud Imperium’s Star Citizen.
This latest goal unlocks a new ship as voted for by the community, the MISC Hull C (Discreet) which is described as follows.
Scaling from small “box trucks” to massive supertankers, the MISC range of cargo hulls (A-D) are the standard goods transporter in human space. Extremely configurable, MISC Hulls can be adapted for most any type of transport job: from standard bulk shipping on the patrolled spacelanes to armored cargo hauling on the frontier. While these pre-configured hulls are primarily used for legitimate purposes, the MISC Hull Cs have recently become the favorite for criminals who modify the ship with advanced sensor shadow technology, quick-decompress holds and a variety of hidden compartments without modifying the ship’s body so it will appear to onlookers as standard everyday transports.
Should they reach $36 million, and let’s face it the way things have gone they will, at $36 million the Tamsa System will be added to the game.
Tamsa System – Located near the fringe of Banu space, Tamsa System features a massive central star that has collapsed into a black hole. Evidence suggests that there were at least two more planets in the system when the star collapsed before the ensuing black hole engulfed them. Only two planets remain in the system, a chthonian world and a gas giant located far from the black hole’s event horizon. Initial surveys indicate that the two outer planets are slowly being pulled towards the black hole, leaving the two as a risky proposition at best for any sort of colonization.
Funding slowed a little in the past few weeks following the ship voting by the community. It looks like Cloud Imperium are still full of ideas to add more content to the game and utlilise the whopping amount of funds that have been raised so far.
With new locations now the focus of attention, the community are being invited to keep voting for the next possible location through the site.
