First thing is first, CIG put out a new launcher that does both LIVE and PTU builds. You'll be able to access the PTU builds if your account is copied over to the PTU database.

You can get it here:

With this new launcher you no longer rename StarCitizen to StarCitizenPTU in the root RSI folder. If you do this, it will re-download the entire ~50GB game.

Instead, now you rename the LIVE folder located in the StarCitizen folder to PTU. Should look like this:     Roberts Space Industries\StarCitizen\PTU

 

Spent some time in the PTU tonight. Sounds got some love this patch, they work way better. Hover mode is wonky as hell. When your ship enters hover mode, it likes to stay in it and it pretends it's a helicopter from GTA V. Manual thrust via decoupled mode just flat out doesn't work once your ship enters hover mode.

PTU seemed pretty stable and lag free really. Got jumped by some Gladii while trying to get to Daymar and the fighting felt good; even though I ended up with two counts of misdemeanor property damage (the Gladii ran off). I did softlock myself trying to get up the ladder in my Valkyrie though... so that was not pleasant. Valkyrie now has 2800 cargo 📦📦📦 👌

Only some of the top tier laptops are going to be able to touch SC.

 

Average FPS for proper laptops seems to be around 50-70 frames at the moment (aka desktop replacements, some of the razor or ROG series), with anything older (including desktops running anything less than a 970) to run around 30fps at 1980x1080
