Website change requests & redesign
Posted by SSX-MS on Tuesday, October 28 2014
Following up from our recent website updates, some of you may be aware that we are currently working on a new website design behind the scenes which we plan to launch with a whole host of new features and improvements on top of its completely new, sleek and modern look.
We can't wait to bring this to you all but in the meantime are there any changes to the website you would like to request yourself?. A new feature? page? something you think we should remove or update? Let us know on the forums!
Website Updates Galore!
Posted by Anubis on Wednesday, October 15 2014
As you may have noticed if you're a frequent visitor, we've just launched somewhat of a spruce up for our website!
Not only have we updated our content a little (including adding a new Star Citizen section to our Gallery), but you'll also notice brand new social icons have been added to the header to point you to our various homes around the web. Anyone browsing on a tablet or phone should also now notice that the main website is now fully responsive, making us a bit more device friendly than we have been in the past!
We've also rolled out some new functionality for the forums as part of this update, including (but not limited to) .webm support, and better image embedding support.
We hope everyone enjoys these new licks of paint!
Star Citizen forum section opened
Posted by SSX-MS on Wednesday, October 15 2014
Yes, the full game may be a way off from being complete and fully "connected" but that doesn't stop us from being incredibly excited for Star Citizen and its vision, surely one of the most ambitious titles there has ever been. - To share in our interest in the game and to follow the development of it we have just opened a brand new section for SC over in the forums. Feel free to drop in and make yourselves at home in there, both newcomers and existing members alike!
Test Drive the Arena Commander Lineup! #StarCitizen
Posted by SSX-MS on Sunday, October 12 2014
Got your eye on Star Citizen but not quite sure which ship to go for? Fancy giving the Hornet F7C a try but don't want to put down $140?. During this week all Star Citizen backers will have the ability to test drive all five flyable ships in honor of the games second anniversary. As such the Aurora, 300i, Hornet, M50 & 350R will be available for all backers until October 17th. A perfect opportunity to get in there and give em all a try for yourself! - source
Shattered Star in Driveclub
Posted by SSX-MS on Sunday, October 12 2014
Driveclub now has its own Shattered Star club complete with themed paintwork design and badge:
This is just the initial "look" which will probably be updated as our club levels up and more designs are unlocked. Looking for a club yourself?. Feel free to hit us up ingame as we're open to all! (just as long as we have open slots ofc!)
Remember to check us out on our YouTube channel for other SSX videos. Lots more to come!
SSX group activity and around the web
Posted by SSX-MS on Wednesday, October 08 2014
For those of you unaware, this week has seen the launch of several new SSX branded pages across the internet which now join our existing groups on both Steam & Facebook. These include a brand new Shattered Star Exiles YouTube channel, Google+ profile, Twitter account & Twitch page. Please feel free to make use of them, spread them around and if you would like to become one of our YouTube/Twitch content creators (or have any content ideas in general you'd like to share) please see this thread!
We will be adding all of these to the top of the main site & forums as soon as possible but for the time being here are the relevant links you'll need to find us on our other sites:
As this years arbiter vote draws to a close we look to focus on increasing our activity as a group going forward, provide content across our new sites (as mentioned above) and hopefully introducing lots of new folk to this wonderful place in the process.
As such we have several discussions going on right now over on the forums which we'd like to get peoples imput on. What are your feelings towards IRC & Voice Comms? Would you be interested in an SSX voice comms server?, do we make the switch from IRC to Skype or stick with IRC?. Also, if we're looking to start playing some new games together (those being either smaller co-operative & multiplayer experiences or full blown massively multiplayer games), which titles do you have your eye on? What would you like to see the SSX play together?
Finally, congratulations go to SL33PY who will win this years Arbiter vote later on this evening and continue on in the role until this time next year when we begin the process once again. He has already set the ball rolling going into his second year as Arbiter with the launch of these new sites and forum discussions so please get involved when you can, we'd appreciate your imput!
