At the $54m mark we've now unlocked "additional AI activities" that will be coded for NPCs to be doing in the persistent universe. The studio also released a greyboxing report for the Retaliator.
"...we’ll add ten distinct types of AI character roles on planetside environments! At $54 million, this includes Bartender, Doctor, Entertainer, Nurse, Sanitation Worker, Security Guard, Shopper, Tourist, Vagrant and Vandal. Future AI roles will be added with future stretch goals! Each additional ’˜class’ of character will be fully expressive and have a role to play in Star Citizen’s planetside interaction AND the game’s greater economy."
