**Notable quotes (from Carl Jones, COO of CIG)**
- I think by that time [2027] we'll be operating a very large MMORPG
- At the moment we don't have any major Asia Pacific presence and that's probably something that will have to come in the long run
- By that time [2027] we'll be developing the sequel and sequels for Squadron 42
- I guess we'll see how long he [Chris Roberts] needs to be over [live in Manchester]. But yeah, it could be one or two years more
- CIG will be moving into it's Enterprise City offices [new Manchester offices] in the spring
- We've quite recently brought most of our Squadron 42 team back into our office
- I really hope CIG is an inclusive and welcoming company, because we're doing everything we can to make sure it is [referencing the need for diversity]

**SC-News Summary - 2021**

Happy New Year everyone! It's time to close 2021 and move on to 2022, where the spaceships will be fast and pretty and the News will be even faster and prettier

This year, we started off 2021 with 2,694 servers following our announcement channels. That's a lot!
We're ending 2021 with 4,300 servers now following us, and an **estimated** 500,000 users in those servers. That's mind-blowing!

We are dedicated to continuing to provide quick, accurate summaries of your favorite Star Citizen News. With that in mind, please enjoy the below summary of each 2021 patch. It's been a *dynamic* year, but we're still here and the summaries shall flow!

<:Roadmap:872137437902692372> **Roadmap Update** <:Roadmap:872137437902692372>
Just a reminder that there will be no roadmap updates until the 26th January 2022, as CIG will be on holiday (you can see this with this year's first roadmap update, which was on the 27th). Importantly, this means that deliverables on the Progress Tracker which are scheduled to be completed for this year (such as 18 different SQ42 chapters) will not be completed at that time: CIG has yet to fully plan out the schedules for many deliverables.

Edit to clear up some confusion:
CIG schedules out their deliverables up to a certain time frame (in this case, up until the end of Q4 2021). This doesn't mean that a deliverable has been completed (even though the Progress Tracker implies that), just that this is the furthest CIG can plan ahead for this deliverable. They do the planning for most of the 2022 schedules in mid-January, therefore the timeframes for the deliverables won't be updated until the end of January. *As such*, the current progress tracker is not accurate, as schedules for 2022 have not yet been added for certain deliverables, thus making it look like that deliverable has been completed this year.

Finally, here is Odysseus' Roadmap Graphic for the last roadmap update of the year:

**Prepare for Jumptown 2.0**
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/18473-Prepare-For-Jumptown-20

**Jumptown 2.0**
Jumptown is open for business! The latest Dynamic Event encourages players on both sides of the law to seek out abandoned drugs labs and secure their goods.

**Jumptown 2.0 | What's new?**
- Updated drug lab location (featuring new cover options, hiding spots, and roof access).
- Multiple different drug labs.
- Physicalized boxes.

**Lawful vs Criminal**
- To take the lawful path, make sure you have no CrimeStat and then accept the mission from Crusader Security. All contraband must be taken to Port Olisar, for which you will receive an aUEC bonus on top of the price of the drugs.
- To take the unlawful path, you must have a CrimeStat of any level and accept the mission from Ruto (he will ask a buy-in for the mission). All contraband must be taken to Grim Hex, regardless of where the mission is taking place. A bonus will be provided for each successfully delivered drug box.

**What is the schedule?**

**Drake Cutlass Steel Q&A**
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/engineering/18479-Q-A-Drake-Cutlass-Steel

- No differences in the pilot area from other variants.
- Full SCU crates cannot be stored as there is no dedicated cargo area. Vehicle also cannot be stored.
- Compared to other dropships, the big bonus is the increased amount of weaponry to cover troops.
- Identical to the Cutlass Black component-wise.
- The pilot and co-pilot retain their weapon racks, and each jump seat has space for one FPS weapon.
- The rear remote turret is exclusively controlled by the co-pilot.
- No medical equipment.
- Weighs more than the Cutlass Black due to the extra jump seats and turrets, and therefore has marginally reduced performance.
- No additional features aside from the jump seats, remote rear turret, and manned door turrets.
- Pilot visibility is the same as other variants. An update to fix issues with alignment and visibility for all Cutlasses is planned.
- Blades can be used on the remote turret, but will be of limited usefulness due to its position.
