(Citizen Star News/Crusty Collins) - 2014-10-03 - Never heard of 'The Horologion Library'? They've been around for centuries, recording history - at least that's their in-game lore. In truth, they are not only an order of hooded monks that observe the universe, they are intelligence gatherers with the main goals of chronicling the goings-on of the PU, undertaking or assisting in scientific expeditions and expanding knowledge. Naturally, members are expected to have a certain air of dignity and adhere to their societal standards of fairness, professionalism, and non-violence. We quote the Librarian: "Essentially, we just want to be represented well in the PU, so no piracy or baby killing or planet destruction or arson."
(Citizen Star News/Crusty Collins) - 2014-08-30 - In Star Citizen, as in real life, there exist people that rise to all sorts of callings. One such ... and many would say ... a higher calling is 'Search And Rescue'. When you are alone in the "black" with a shot up ship and burnt out engines, these pilots may just save your life.
Most selflessly 'The Auxilium Group', whose founder Niko-Ranulf was happy to face our interview questions and stated:
[...] while the game can and will be very fun, a game of this nature can be cruel because it strives to mirror reality to a certain extent. [...] we want people to see Auxilium as an example of hope, selflessness, and brotherly kindness in a simulated world that will be filled with quite a bit of the exact opposite.
(Citizen Star News/Crusty Collins) - 2014-07-18 - In this organization profile we talk to a classic trade organization, The Galactic Trade Federation (TGTF). All about accumulating wealth and economic power. TGTF also co-founded the 'Allied Commerce Coalition' (ACC), a coalition or alliance of organizations that includes 'Aperture Science Inc', Autonomous Transport Recon and Exploration (ATRAX), Avalanche and the 9th Ghost Security Group. By means of a strong coalition they hope to build up a powerful factory network and snap up a large market share, as well as share the burden of infrastructure (shared forums and teamspeak). Achieving an "economy of scale" as they say, while maintaining a relative independence.
(Citizen Star News) - 2014-08-08 - Another fascinating service organization spawned by Star Citizen's affiliate enabled organizations system: Linux Users Group (LUG).
Arising from the Unofficial Linux Thread on the RSI Forums, and formed even before Chris Roberts' intention to release Star Citizen on Linux, the Star Citizen LUG tracks Linux developments and supports people aiming to use linux for related projects.
Even if you don't plan to support Linux (which btw - I hope to, Ed.), you should know these people's work are incredibly important to Star Citizen and gaming's future. With Microsoft's Windows doing a terrible job of supporting gamers, important developers like Valve and Cloud Imperium games are looking to alternatives. Valve famously starting the Linux based SteamOS project.
These alternatives "encourage" Microsoft to do better, or lose their grip on gamers. So support these folks.
