Star Citizen discusses the future of tractor beams as fixes for Alpha 3.18 continue to progress
StarCitizen I’d really appreciate it if people could focus a bit on what’s next as the Inside Star Citizen videos continue to be released, with talks about plans for short and long term tractor beams this week. But we will start with another progress report on Alpha 3.18’s now two week long sandbox bombshell.
Another update note was posted on the status page earlier in the week, talking about continued server and client side hotfixes, with the latest client hotfix being rolled out to players to address some important issues. Despite this, the current build of the game still remains in a partial failure state.
Meanwhile, the 3.18.1 patch that CIG is currently focusing on to fix the game begins the main improvements in the works, starting with more open ship claim updates to address the current ship claim issues of the to stop Alpha. However, the vast majority of player responses draw attention to still ongoing issues with infinite loading and character repair.
As for the tractor-beam-focused video, which addresses far-flung plans like various man-portable and ship-borne tractor-beam types, and additional uses for beams like towing ships or beaming multiple people at the same item, while Alpha 3.19 lets players pick things like power components, missiles, and weapons from Dodge dead ships to either attach them to their own ships or bring them back to sell for a profit.
