Cloud Imperium Games is continuing to follow up after CitizenCon by releasing new Star Citizen videos from the event and more.
This time around we get the full recording of the Quantum panel. Quantum is basically a dynamic universe simulator that will introduce dynamic NPCs and a flowing economy driven by offer and demand into the game.
Quantum is the brainchild of Tony Zurovec, whom you may know as the creator of the Crusader series back in the nineties. He also worked on the Ultima series.
The second video provides an extensive look at the ship creation pipeline. If you’re waiting for a specific ship, there’s a decent chance that there’s some info about it there.
In other Star Citizen news, the game’s crowdfunding total has passed $254 million.
To be more precise, at the moment of this writing it’s at $254,019,888.
The number of registered accounts is now at 2,457,927. As usual, you should keep in mind that not all of them are paying players. The number includes accounts created for Free Fly events.
If you want to see more you can check out the impressive gameplay shared at CitizenCon and the second part, showing planet Microtech, the Anvil Carrack, and the Anvil Pisces, and the first wormhole jump to a new system. You can also take a look at the brand new “Theatres of War” Battlefield-like gameplay mode, more videos and screenshots showing planet tech v4, Microtech and its capital, New Babbage, and two more panels showcasing the latest ships and prison gameplay.
