Star Citizen reaches $24 million – Enhanced Capital Ship Systems goal revealed

Remember that Hornet video we posted last night? It looks like it’s done the trick as Cloud Imperium has just reached the $24 million goal for Star Citizen.

This latest target now means that the game will feature the public transport system:

Need to get from one place to another but don’t have a starship? We’re building a galactic transportation system. You can travel via transport from system to system in Star Citizen and even ship items (like a ship you need moved to another hangar.) With this stretch goal, we’ll expand this system: star liners, long range transports, charter ships and flyable shuttles!

Not that the $24 million is in the bank, Cloud Imperium has also announced the $26 million goal which will be enhanced capital ship systems.

Enhanced Capital Ship Systems – In addition to the command and control systems we’ve already outlined, we’re going to expand capital ship functions! Lead a damage control team to fight fires and repair key systems during battle, control internal bulkheads to slow boarders and man a number of consoles, like navigation and engineering, that will make commanding a capital ship feel even more immersive.

With such a massive amount of funding now secured you have to wonder if they’ll run out of stretch goal ideas. It;s good new for supporters though, the game looks to be coming on leaps and bounds.
