Star Citizen Alpha 3.17 has been released, new features detailed

Cloud Imperium has released Star Citizen Alpha 3.17 to all the game’s backers. This brand new version brings a number of new features and you can also find a new trailer dedicated to it below.

Going into more detail, Star Citizen Alpha 3.17 adds the ability for players to sell stock items. This includes prey found in abandoned and weapons ‘acquired’ from other players.

In addition, Alpha 3.17 brings the first implementation of ship-to-ship refueling. According to the developers, this will give players a way home if they run out of fuel in the depths of space.

In addition, players can expect some mining gadgets. These mining gadgets change the rock cutting process to make it faster, easier or more fruitful.

This latest update also brings the first ship in MISC’s iconic Hull series. MISC Hull A is the ideal tool for pilots who want to take their towing career to the next level. Hull A has the same telescopic load spindle as its larger relatives, giving players a taste of what’s coming with Hull C later in the year.

It is also worth noting that Alpha 3.17 has the initial implementation of rivers. This is the first phase in adding streams around the universe, more of which will be added in future spots.

Finally, Star Citizen Alpha 3.17 adds a new location, Maria Pure of Heart Hospital in Lorville.
