Star Citizen 3.18 definitely had a less-than-stellar start. Many players, myself included, were locked out of the game for days. It wasn’t until day seven that the stars aligned and I was able to beat the log-in server defects, account authentication snafus, and infinite loading screen. For the first few sessions of stable gameplay, I turned my attention to salvaging.
Salvage is the first of the industry professions I backed that’s now in the game, along with the ships I purchased. Refuel is here as a precursor to Pyro but is an unnecessary function at this time since game services can more easily refuel your ship. Also, I backed to do it with the Vulcan, not the Starfarer. CIG’s implementation of mining left me confident that all the professions would be done well. Yes, we’ve had hiccups along the way in balancing them
Recently, I made my first foray into using GameGlass for Star Citizen. In the past, I’ve utilized Voice Attack to handle the myriad of keybinds required but can’t fit on my HOTAS. These days, however, I want to avoid being tied to a microphone for basic gameplay. GameGlass offers free and premium service options and premade shards are available for immediate use. I opted to purchase a couple of shards.
