The 3.3PTU is going to be sent to the LIVE launcher and the PTU will switch over to 3.3.5 with Hurston. 3.3 to live should happen tomorrow (friday 9th) and 3.3.5 has no specific date but it should be soon (within a week)

It is a little confusing. When can I expect my 3.2.2 version to update to 3.3? I guess today? (Friday). No idea what PTU is.

Persistant "TEST" Universe. i.e the experimental branch of the build. PU is the stable(ish) version.

Dont hold your breath on it going live today. The last PTU build (3.3.0ae) really seems to have screwed things up again.

Yep, I'd say probably 3.2.2 will be updated to 3.3 on monday and then PTU gets updated to 3.3.5 on Wednesday.

3.3 got put onto the live server a few hours ago. No word on when they will drop the 3.3.5 PTU.

Dont hold your breath guys. Currently they've managed to create a game halting bug into LIVE. Seems like most (including me) can not even load the game at the moment. Error shows as Code 15006.

I hope they're paying OT to get this fixed ASAP.

Dont hold your breath. They dont work weekends. So if the server crashes it can take a few hours for someone to notice.

I did manage a little session earlier today. It certainly ran a lot better but walking around the station I kept getting stutters. That's with 16 gigs of ram and the game installed on an SSD. I may actually be able to learn the game now it's playable.

The funny thing is that 2 patches ago it was extremely stable (wednesday) but then they decided to push it to live and the next two patches were extremely unstable. God only knows why they decided to push an unstable patch to live on friday right before a weekend that they know they wont have anyone on staff to fix errors for.

They make some bad decisions sometimes. I think maybe they felt they HAD to becasue CR said on thursday that it would be live and they didnt want him to lie about a deadline AGAIN. lol

The insurance on spacecraft is a bit concerning and I really do not understand it.

I would like to go into the game and exit without losing my Aurora, but is seems by quitting the game you lose your ship(while in flight).

I assume you have to land and exit the ship in order for it to be okay.

I've lost ships by losing internet connection, and this maybe okay for now as Master IIRC you helped set me up with LTI on my Aurora, that's life time insurance, right? If that's true, that's pretty sweet!

My concern is if I purchase another spacecraft with no LTI and the cost to maintain through insurance smile

The current version of the game doesnt really have insurance. Any ship you own will be replaced for free an unlimited number of times or you can pay a small fee to expedite it's respawn.

To make sure your ship is save you have to land at a starbase, outpost etc and then your ship is stored but sometimes you might spawn at a different base if your ship is stored somewhere that is over full of people. So you then have to file a claim on your ship so it is replaced at the base you are at now. Its confusing etc.

But for now, you dont have to worry about every losing your ship though you might end up at some places where you cant spawn your ship (like some of the planetside outposts only spawn land vehicles.)

You can buy some ships in game with in game money now but im unsure how the insurance works on them. If you buy a ship with real money and the insurance runs out (ie 2 year insurance and its been 2 years since the game went into FULL release v1.0 (which is when they will start counting insurance times)) they have said that you will still be able to retrieve your ship but it will cost more money than what buying in game insurance for it would have costed.

My personal opinion though is that you shouldnt buy any ship for real money unless it have LTI and even then, as of right now I dont think it is a good idea. But they also have a CCU open which allows you to upgrade your ship and keep that ship's insurance. so if you wanted to upgrade your aurora lti to an avenger that might be feasible.

Go to your hangar on the website.

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/account/pledges

and scroll through all the stuff there till you find your package. Then the arrow on the right to expand the content of the package. It will say straight out what level of insurance comes with it.

Thanks. This is what I have...

Starting Money: 1,000 UEC
3 Month Insurance
Digital Star Citizen Manual
Star Citizen Digital Download
Squadron 42 Digital Download
Digital Squadron 42 Manual

So,I must be out of insurance then. When I tried out 3.3 I launched into space and then later just quit without landing. Does that mean I have to pay (I assume in UEC currency) to get a new one?

Insurance length only takes affect after full game v1.0 launches which is more than a year away right now.

If you spawn in and your ship is destroyed just file an insurance claim for free at the ship console where you normally request. There might be a minute or so delay for it to be replaced. But with a starter ship it should be instant. Some larger ships have a 15-30 min wait or a 5 minute expedited time if you pay in game money.

There are still a lot of bugs that can lose you your ship but until it goes full 1.0 release your ship insurance wont count down. No worries there. On the flip side though every major patch will reset your in game progress. So if you save up in game for a new ship youll lose everything you earned when 3.4 releases. Major patches release every quarter so youll reset 4 times a year minimum.

One of the reasons people buy bigger ships with real money is so they dont get reset to just their starter ship every patch. Kind of makes the game pay to win in its current state.
