There’s a lot going on for Subscribers in the month of September, from the Masters of Flight series making their return for the “Ship of the Month” to the newly released 890 Jump being available for a week to Imperators as part of the Test Flight perk, the SIX completely bespoke In-Game Rewards last month being followed up by SIX helmets this month, the Subscriber Vault bringing you the first looks inside the new Modular Space Station Interiors (and showing things we didn’t get to in SCL last month), Jump Point exploring the Nautilus versions that never were, an interview with those behind the Law and Black Market Economy systems and more.
As stated last month, the In-Game Rewards that come between August and December 2019 are being created specifically for Subscribers with an eye towards life in the persistent universe. Some of them will be the helmets we’ve already previewed in previous newsletters and Star Citizen Live, others will be things you may have first seen if you read Jump Point magazine each month. We’re excited to bring this additional focus to the In-Game Rewards (often referred to as Flair) with an eye towards truly unique offerings not found anywhere else, at least not in the immediate future. It’s one more way we want to say thank you for supporting the continuing development of the game each and every month.
With that, let’s run down some of the Subscriber Promotions happening this month.
IN-GAME REWARDS (FLAIR)
This month’s flair has been glimpsed in newsletters, an episode of Star Citizen Live and most recently in August’s Jump Point magazine. Converted from the stock RSI Odyssey Flight Helmet, the fine folks at CC Conversions have created the stylish Caudillo that’s adept at surviving firefights in both atmosphere and in space, providing complete head protection with the stylish look of classical armor thanks to its visually striking metal crest.
NOTE: These incorrectly list as Damage Reduction: None in 3.6.2. This will be remedied in Alpha 3.7.
“Caudillo” Helmets Pack #1 by CC’s Conversions – Includes the “Cobalt” and “Ghost White” Caudillo Helmets based on the original Odyssey. Current Centurion Subscribers get this pack as part of their subscription.
“Caudillo” Helmets Pack #2 by CC’s Conversions – Includes the “Wildfire” and “Steel” Caudillo Helmets based on the original Odyssey. Current Imperator Subscribers get this pack and Pack #1 above as part of their subscription.
“Caudillo” Helmets Pack #3 by CC’s Conversions – Includes the “Hazard” and “Burnt Orange” Caudillo Helmets based on the original Odyssey. This pack is available in the SUBSCRIBER EXCLUSIVE store only.
If you aren’t a subscriber but want to acquire these packs as part of a Subscription, you can still receive them if you SUBSCRIBE by September 16th.
Additionally, you can purchase these and most of the previous flair going back to 2014 ANYTIME in the Subscriber Exclusive store. You can fill in any gaps as well as gift them to non-subscribers.
SHIP OF THE MONTH
This month we take to the stars with not one, not two, but FOUR ships available to all Subscribers for the month of September. When these four were first introduced as part of the Masters of Flight series, they cut a striking visage among their less colorful counterparts.
Available to fly now are the Gladius Valiant, the Sabre Comet, the Hornet Wildfire and the Avenger Titan Renegade for all Subscribers until the end of this month.
SUBSCRIBER-SPECIAL PLEDGE PROMOTION
Every new month we make the previous month’s Ship of the Month available for a limited time pledge promotion. As with last month, we’re going to make these offerings just a little more Subscriber-Special by continuing the upgraded insurance and adding some decorative items to each Subscriber-Special Pledge Promotion.
This month’s Subscriber-Special Pledge Promotion is the Tumbril Cyclone, which was made available for all Subscribers throughout August. This Cyclone will come with 1-Year Insurance and three decorative flair items included at no additional charge. It is available to all Subscribers until September 30th.
The Revenant Tree was the seventh item in our original Space Plant series. Contrary to its ominous name, the Revenant is actually a subgenus of the Altrucia tree, an indigenous plant of Terra III known for its thick and colorful leaves.
The Armin Trask figure was part of Takuetsu’s Citizen Series, that depicted an outpost worker doing what they do best: surviving.
Painter Aaron Fring immortalized the last moments of the Second Tevarin War in his iconic painting “Tears of Fire.” Fring was on Elysium when Warlord Corath’Thal and the remaining members of his Tevarin fleet incinerated themselves in the atmosphere of their homeworld.
IMPERATOR TEST FLIGHT
Exclusively for Imperators, the 890 Jump will be available to fly at no additional charge as part of the Imperator Test Flight perk, which provides access to newly implemented ships for one week after they're launched. This Test Flight runs from Patch Day (September 6th) until September 14th at 0700 UTC.
