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.

On its own, the Mule isn’t of much use yet – another vehicle made available in-game while its core mechanics are being completed.

Regardless of long-time backer complaints and the number of years Star Citizen has been in an Alpha, interest in the game grows. I’m following several streamers who are new to the game, which generates interest in their pre-existing followers.

Although the player professions are what I’m most excited about in Star Citizen, I need a break from cargo hauling and mining. So it’s back to where it all started when all we had in the Persistent Universe was ship combat.
