I thought my goose was damn cooked when the COMSTAB malfunctioned ... causing my trusty steed, the F8 Lightning prototype, to slide wildly into the viscous nickel iron spinning rock.

If you don’t mind a few spoilers (and odd textures), Citizen Star Teller (/u/t3ller) has been cranking out videos and images delving into details of everything we know about Star Citizen, from digging into the various official and unofficial releases.

This week’s gold Citizen Star goes to the triumphant return of veteran fan videographer and youtuber FiendishFeather. He had quit the Star Citizen scene for a time but seems to have been lured back by the additional capability to make new videos provided by the  leaked assets. That said, his amazing video contains no spoilers as it shows nothing we hadn’t seen before. Check out “Star Citizen: Danger Zone”!

Congratulations to Citizen Star Micah Westfahl aka Kenwe_Daoke on the Star Citizen Forums for winning the Ship Shape contest. Excellent work! As we’ve been tracking, a lot of great entries. I can’t imagine it was an easy thing to pick.

Nerf wars!

Summary:

(Citizen Star News) - by Citizen Ed - 2014-11-21 - In this week's 10 for the Chairman Chris Roberts mentioned a barter economy for field health care. 

My immediate thought was that a fairly automated payment system could easily be handled with a rudimentary Health Insurance system. I mean -- if we have Hull Insurance -- why not Health?

Q9 - Gleep - 19:56 - How do you envision a person flying a Cutlass Red or MISC Endeavor Hospital ship making money? Will we receive a payment once our medical bay heals somebody?

A - Yes, there will be ways to do that, transactional job boards and contracts. Barter/payment. If they didn't do the job they could be suspended. Uber as an example. [source]

How could that work? 

(Citizen Star News) - Compiled by Citizen Ed & Crusty Collins - 2014-11-13 - While there are many updates and new comm-links on the official Star Citizen (RSI) website, there's only so much time to read all of them. As the monthly reports seem to have become longer, we thought we provide you with a curated summary and direct excerpts from the latest monthly report.
