Eager space cadets will find that they can now signup to create groups and organisations, recruit members and sign up for the new Live Chat beta in Chris Roberts’ successfully kickstarted (and still going) Star Citizen.
Titled the Organisation System, the new roll-out includes a set of web-tools for players to organise groups and better communicate amongst each other, alongside a revamped Live Chat beta designed to take the place of the current Chatroll system. “The Star Citizen community has expanded beyond our wildest expectations over the last year; we’re excited to see how these new tools help with the process,” said the team in its latest update.
As is always the continuing trend for Star Citizen, the team at Roberts Space Industries and Cloud Imperium Games has again passed a new milestone goal, hitting $35 million in funding. While it may not be a speedy bump seen previously - they were at $33 million in November last year - it is still a big feat nonetheless. By reaching $35 million, backers have unlocked the last of a series of fan-voted ship designs – the Drake Herald.
“You’re not just re-writing the rules of how games are made and funded but you’re showing the power that a committed community has to achieve a vision that so many people said was no longer relevant,” Chris Roberts wrote in the latest chairman’s letter.
“You’ve broken every record there is in crowd funding – and not just for games – for any type of project.”

Star Citizen is expected on PC in 2015.
