Star Citizen Gets Another Million In Funding, $59M is the Newest Number
There is no stopping Star Citizen at the moment as the game has received yet another million from crowd funding, taking the total up to $59 million.
Just like every million, this one also adds a new feature to the game and this time, it’s Anvil Aerospace Crucible, which you would definitely want to have by your side after suffering an attack.
The developers describe it as a Flying Toolbox:
A so-called “flying toolbox,” the Crucible is the ship you want on your side when you suffer an asteroid collision or survive a pirate attack! Structurally, the Crucible consists of a cockpit, drive unit and workshop.
The Crucible’s workshop is versatile: it can be used as a base for conducting EVA repairs (complete with requisite tool storage) or it can use magnetic grapplers to attach directly to a ship hull. In this situation, the workshop actually opens to space and allows a repair crew direct access to a damaged ship.
From the looks of it, it seems that Anvil Aerospace Crucible will play a very important role in keeping you alive after you have suffered an attack from the space enemies.
However, you will not be seeing this crucible in Star Citizen anytime soon, but don’t worry as for the time being, you have FPS module to look forward to.
The team working on FPS module is being called “Redacted” and just a few days ago, it held a Reddit AMA, in which multiple burning questions of the fans were answered. You can read all about it right here.
