Much to my surprise, the Alpha 2.4 release of Star Citizen remains exclusively on the Private Test Universe. The development team is facing a few critical blockers such as ships floating above the landing pads when summoned, player invisibility which often results in death leaving Port Olisar as your spacesuit is missing, client crashes and unstable frame rates. We're up to patch P, which isn't much better than O in regards to the aforementioned blockers. Until the content is on the Live Server, I've been reluctant to start pursing a few avenues I'd like to write about. We've had one PTU wipe. I'd hate to be midstream documenting and adventure only to start over. My time is a little too tight for that. I may move forward with trying out the new item port system on PTU if this lingers much longer. I have new weapons I'd like to try out.
One aspect of Alpha 2.4 that is 100% safe in making it's way to the Live Server, is the new music from composer Pedro Camacho. I'm a huge fan of the music we're heard so far for Arena Commander and ArcCorp. More of the soundtrack has been introduced to the persistent universe areas. I've published an article on [REDACTED] discussing the additions and included a mash-up of my favorite interludes, overlaid with some the game's background FXs. Please pop over and give it a read.
