Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released more videos of its upcoming space simulator, which passed another crowdfunding milestone.
The first video showcases the Actor Status System, which introduces survival elements in the game. On top of that, we also get to hear about the quarterly go/no go meetings, which determine if a feature or content is ready for prime time.
The second video showcases the tools behind Planet Tech v4, showing how developers can pretty much “paint” planets to create their environments and biomes.
Last, but not least, we get to see the trailer of the Anvil Carrack, which has now been released as playable in the game.
In other Star Citizen news, the crowdfunding total has passed $270 million today.
To be more precise, it’s at $270,374,389 at the moment of this writing, with 2,535,108 registered accounts.
As usual, it’s known that not all of them are paying players. The number includes free accounts created for a variety of reasons.
