Star Citizen continues to grow as fans push the project past the $34 million. Week after week another goal seems to be smashed to unlock more content for a game that isn’t even out yet. The latest goal unlocks the MISC Hull C stretch goal.
MISC Hull C (Discreet) – Scaling from small “box trucks” to massive supertankers, the MISC range of cargo hulls (A-D) are the standard goods transporter in human space. Extremely configurable, MISC Hulls can be adapted for most any type of transport job: from standard bulk shipping on the patrolled spacelanes to armored cargo hauling on the frontier. While these pre-configured hulls are primarily used for legitimate purposes, the MISC Hull Cs have recently become the favorite for criminals who modify the ship with advanced sensor shadow technology, quick-decompress holds and a variety of hidden compartments without modifying the ship’s body so it will appear to onlookers as standard everyday transports.
The project was dubbed The Cult of Star Citizen by Xerin, who offered up a cautionary warning in a recent article that caught the attention of Chris Roberts. Roberts was kind enough to speak with Ricoxg in an interview about the subject.
Star Citizen has had a big influence on the crowdfunding scene, but the dangers of a project this big failing, or even worse, not getting made, after raising so much money and goodwill from fans could be insanely damaging to the industry. With any luck that won’t happen.
