Here’s some odd Star Citizen partnership news, CIG has partnered with MyRadar, a weather tracking mobile app with ten million active monthly users. The app shows weather across the globe and has expanded its data visualization capabilities by offering satellite imagery for other celestial bodies, including Mars.
This latest partnership will allow users of the app to explore three of the new moons (Yela, Cellin and Daymar ) in the upcoming 3.0 update directly on the MyRadar app. Users of the app will be able to pan around the new Star Citizen moons and zoom in to check out their landscapes and features.
“This is a really cool and unique way to put our data visualization technology to work,” said Andy Green, CEO of ACME. “In bringing virtual worlds into view, players and explorers alike can take a virtual trip to another planet.”
“Andy Green and his MyRadar team came to us with the idea to include elements of Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 in the latest update to their outstanding weather app,” said CIG CEO Chris Roberts. “We were excited by the possibility and provided them with some of the data from the Moons of 3.0 created by our soon to debut procedural planet technology. Now MyRadar users can explore the moons of Yela, Cellin and Daymar while they are searching for their latest weather forecasts.“
While this is probably not much use to players currently, it’s a nice gimmick and marketing exercise. How useful it will be to see the weather on Yela, Cellin and Daymar remains to be seen. Star Citizen 3.0 is still in testing with the Evocati group but with any luck, it will be released to the masses in the not too distant future.
