Hiho, don't know if anyone watched the holiday life stream of Star Citizen yesterday.
I think the beginning (Javelin details and reveal that the next Alpha update 2.1 maybe even before X-mas will have the Freelancer flyable + hearing Rhys-Davies talk ) and the end "seamless Planet" landing was worth watching it. In between it was pretty boring looking at a extended 10 for the Chairman and Chris stumbling in the Alpha 2.0.

Oh a nice picture gallery of the Freelancer, Starfarer etc. here.

But judge for your self for the first and last part:

I think that atmosphere transition is huge and thought we will see this not before 2year in after the go life of the PU in a far away time

Awww this makes me happy. The rate of updates is ramping up!

Watched it, that last part was really impressive. But the best part was without a doubt John Rhys-Davies voice and laugh. Best voice actor ever!

Yeah true ... but I guess they will not have such a high ramp up of release going on for long. Just hope they still can push out Squadron 42 next year. That would be great to have that final!

While I think the seamless transition from space to planet looks very impressive, I hope they really put in an automated landing system as having to spend so much time in precision landing might be cool the first 10 times you'll have to do it.. but after 100 times you'll be grinding your teeth every time you'll have to go from 1 place to another..

they will, they even said that not all landing zones will have that but only automated landing from certain spots in the orbit. Especially planets like Earth etc. will not be done like it. Guess first shot only moon bases and asteroids etc. Maybe something like the forest moon like Endor
