Spectrum (module)

From the Star Citizen Wiki, the fidelity™ encyclopedia

Spectrum is a real-time web application (and additional functionality in the Launcher and Star Citizen executable) that will handle all in-game and out of game community communications in Star Citizen, under development by Turbulent. It was designed to integrate forums, chat, and other key features into one streamlined platform.[1]


Spectrum is first announced in CitizenCon 2016. The initial launch will be a web application, but subsequent releases will include more functionality, such as a fully integrated in-game overlay and voice chat. Looking further into the future, players will even be able to launch the game from Spectrum.[2][3]

The first iteration of Spectrum, Alpha 0.3.0x was launched in 2017-02-17.[4] In 2017-04-04, the old RSI forums were closed and put into an archival state.[5] It stayed that way up until at some undetermined moment in 2019, the subdomain became unavailable and started showing a "504 Gateway Time-out" message.[6]
