Crew and Collect.  New wreckage job from the mobi.  Pretty cool.  Unfortunatley Lorville racoons sliped the jackpot from under me.

And I was thinking about turning the volume up a bit more on that thing...  15636

SC 3.6

hover mode . ship buy and rent . law system . ship hailing . face tracking . working combat. persistence

coming to a PC near you...

Whilst originally 3.6 felt pretty light, as it turns out, the new law system brings some cool new gameplay in the form of an improved hacking mechanic requiring crypto keys; different laws within different regions and selling illegal goods at various new locations within Stanton, such as the new junkyards.

Being able to rent and buy vehicles allows for reasons to make credits (I'm looking at trade and transportation gameplay this patch), and with components persisting even when a vehicle is destroyed, upgrading them now make sense.  You can, so I've been told, successfully log out in a bed to save your location now, too.

VOIP now includes local chat turned on by default, allowing us to talk and listen to anyone on the server nearby (I can't wait to tell someone to lower their weapon or I'll shoot); we can hail other ships and are automatically assigned a COMM channel for entering a vehicle, allowing us to chat to everyone onboard.

One of my favourite new features is the improved face tracking, which now can be used with a hold key bind.  As well as a new control layout/setup that I've invested time into, flight will feel fantastic this time.

Then there's flight combat that works, nice FPS improvements and some extra SFX goodies from CI's excellent sound team.

Oh, and not forgetting hover mode .

Thank you Gray, who understands my lack of games to play even tho I call myself a gamer and went on to let me know the gift is thanks for Brigade efforts, in which Gray recognises my passion and dedication.  Well, you are very welcome and I hope I can continue to do the same for many members to come.  I'm very much looking forward to entering Enderal, tomorrow morning!

Very cool thing to do, Gray.  07

The dates are in for the CCC event above (click the pic):

  1. 6th July, 20:00
  2. 13th July
  3. 27th July

If you'd like to participate, please let me know.  I'll be joining them all, if time permits.  Take note that the events will go forward if 3.6 allows it, so if the bug-monster general (who I've named El Loco) arrives with their armies, I'll keep you posted.

Hardspace episode 6.  You can easily watch this episode first before starting at the beginning but either way, this episode is very tasty.

There's this, @Graymound ... :

On offer ATM.  Co-op.  One of the other games I was talking about was 'A Way Out' - a prison break co-op game, looks very story driven in terms of interactivity.  Still searching for the FPS co-op game; I'll make a comment if I find it.

For those of you looking at entering 3.6, here's probably all you need to know about the state of the game now and for what happens in a few weeks.  That's right, just 2-3 weeks before the next goodies.  Not massive amounts for 3.6 but extras nonetheless, including the anticipated hover mode (VTOL) and HUD/MFD updates (to the gladius only currently).  VOIP back in the game is also pretty awesome for chat to other random players; "drop your weapon or I'll shoot!"

Likely live this week, the start of ship customisations.  Persistent in the alpha.  Everything can be obtained in game, or you can purchase a vessel and extras with RL money.  Not pay-to-win but if you happen to be well off these kinds of things can place you well ahead of the curve vs someone who isn't, SC is heavily a paper, rock, scissors and numbers game tho so I don't see it being important in any way.  Pretty cool.

I'm taking part in the following story events from Citizens' Coffee Company, an SC org in which Brigade is affiliated with (let me know if you'd like to join as an individual).

19th May Chief.Neil
OFFICIAL!  This Sunday 26th May at 18:00utc I'll be playing through the newly released (this Tues) game, Observation.

It is a sci-fi thriller uncovering what happened to Dr. Emma Fisher, and the crew of her mission, through the lens of the station’s artificial intelligence S.A.M. Players assume the role of S.A.M. by operating the station’s control systems, cameras, and tools to assist Emma.

Stop by Brigade's twitch channel every Sun at 18:00 to join in and help win the story.
More Star Citizen to commence as 3.6 draws closer.
17th May Chief.Neil
This just happened.  Whoop, savings!  Planning to play LIVE on the Brigade stream as an interim to more Star Citizen.
