Alpha Patch 2.3.1 has been released to Live, and is now available to players! This patch is primarily focused around bug and stability fixes.

Your launcher should show "2.3.1 – 341778" as the client version. It is strongly recommended that players delete their USER folder for the Live client after patching, particularly if you start encountering any odd character graphical issues or crash on loading. The USER folder can be found (in default installations) at C:\Program Files\Cloud Imperium Games\StarCitizen\Live.

Please review our current list of 2.3.1 Known Issues FAQ, and take full advantage of our Issue Council area of the Community site to report any bugs you encounter, as well as contribute to other players submissions.

Important Callouts:

  • Repair at Cry-Astro is behaving somewhat inconsistently, some pads will not repair all the time.
    • Components (weapons, missiles, thrusters, etc..) that are attached to a damaged/missing wing, will not be repaired when the portion of a ship is repaired.
