Star Citizen talks about upcoming medical gameplay, FPS hacking and radar, and inventory updates

It’s been a whole year since Star Citizen’s first release to the public. Since then, the game has gone through several important improvements, including the addition of medical functionality, radar, and a new inventory system.

Alex Seropian was recently interviewed by Dslyecxi at Star Citizen’s new website (, previously known as During the interview, Seropian talks about upcoming medical gameplay, FPS hacking and radar, and inventory updates.

Star Citizen was one of the biggest crowd-funded games of all time, and it’s still going strong, with the recent release of the game’s first episode, Squadron 42. In this week’s episode, the developers unveiled their plans for the future of the game, starting with the addition of FPS (First Person Shooter) gameplay. FPS can be used in a variety of ways, from escorting a ship to protecting yourself from NPCs (Non-Player-Character, or people controlled by the game) who are trying to board you..

Last week’s episode of Calling All Devs focused primarily on the updates planned for the core game cycles of Star Citizen – primarily the wound and death mechanics, hacking terminals, and personal inventory features.

There has been a lot of talk about the health, respawn, and death mechanics planned for the game, which CIG has already discussed. Essentially, each individual member will have their own health pool, which will be merged into an overall health pool. Injuries can have three degrees of severity – the first degree is the most serious and the third degree is less serious – and affect a player’s skills in different ways, for example. For example, the inability to focus or difficulty moving. Wearable therapy devices like Medipens can restore functionality, but excessive limb damage requires specialized care for full recovery. Healing consumables are not meant to heal immediately, but to allow the player to heal their wounds and end the fight. There are also plans to introduce blood drug levels that players can manage.

Managing your character’s wounds becomes vital, because if you resurface far from the drop zone, your corpse will lose all its equipment. This is to encourage players to seek medical assistance from other players with specialized ships and equipment or from hospitals, although players with all their equipment will be revived if they die close enough to the drop zone. However, sometimes the damage exceeds the player’s total health, which means instant death either way.

There are plans to develop portable radar instruments that will work similarly to the recently updated radar scan and ping, where additional ambient noise will affect results and detected players will receive a warning that they have been pinged. Hacking is a separate mechanism in the game that uses a key card that allows players to open doors, disable shields, and do other things. In the same way, repairs to computer systems are done, but (of course) in reverse order. Alpha 3.15 may include some of these features. As for inventory, there aren’t many surprises, but there will be a mobiGlas update to help players better manage their inventory.



Longtime MMORPG fans know that the game Star Citizen originally launched on Kickstarter in 2012 with over $2 million, with a planned launch in 2014. As of 2021, the game is still in its unfinished but playable alpha phase, and has raised about $350 million from players over the years through ongoing crowdfunding and the sale of ships and other game assets. It is currently the best-funded video game in history and has endured both the tireless dedication of its proponents and the enormous skepticism of its detractors. The jointly developed single player game Squadron 42has also been delayed several times.

ViewCIG has just announced that in Star Citizen, you will be able to have character-specific medical needs. Does this mean that a medical treatment for someone will be unique for that person? Can you only use anesthesia on one person at a time? Will you be able to customize the medical treatment that is given to you? Will the treatment be tailored to that specific body part? Will you be able to pick and choose what medicine you want? And, will you be able to develop your own customized medication?.
