Every two weeks, we accompany the Roadmap update with a brief explanatory note to give you insight into the decision-making that led to any changes. This is part of an effort to make our communications more transparent, more specific, and more insightful for all of you who help to make Star Citizen and Squadron 42 possible.
With that said, let’s go ahead and dive into this week’s Roadmap Roundup!

Notable Changes for March 10th, 2021
Weapon Misfire & Wear and FPS Weapon Overheat
These two deliverables were originally slated to start work in the back half of 2021. However, it was decided to give more resources, time, and priority to the upcoming Salvage feature, pushing these deliverables into 2022.
A higher priority was given to an overhaul of ship Multi-Function Displays in 2021. Therefore, the Fuel Scooping feature is now slated to start work in 2022. This deliverable will appear again in the future when additional quarters are revealed.
Due to a reallocation of resources on the Weapon Content Team, this deliverable was de-prioritized in favor of other weapons and tools in 2021, therefore we have removed it from the Progress Tracker.
Stanton System Polish
This deliverable has successfully passed its final review. For this reason, we have updated the label on its card to “Committed” and changed its color to blue.
This deliverable has been renamed to “Personal Inventory”, in order to more accurately describe the scope of this feature, as outlined in the most recent episode of Calling All Devs.
The following deliverables have been added to the Release view:
Missions – Timed Multi-Drop Deliveries
Implement timed delivery missions with multiple drops and varied timers. This will require players to prioritize drops and plan routes to ensure all packages are delivered on time. These missions will vary between local drops and long-distance deliveries.
Missions – Quantum Sensitive Deliveries
Implement cargo missions that will require players to be extra careful with their deliveries and prohibit use of their quantum drives.
That’s all for this week! Join the discussion on Spectrum
