Stroll around your hangar and inspect your ships. Make noises like "Mmm, mm" and "Yes, quite".

Get ready to enjoy a thrilling walk around your own personal Star Citizen hangar! The first playable module for the unstoppable community-backed juggernaut will be in the hands of backers this week (the 29th, in fact), according to Chris Roberts.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Roberts claimed that a dogfighting module is also planned before the year is out, with a planetside module scheduled for March 2014. Any ships you have pledged for as a backer will be in your hangar to enter and examine.
Roberts also revealed that Star Citizen was now 100% community funded and is not taking investor money.
“I’m actually not taking money from investors now. The budget for what we’re delivering is about $20 million, and we’re almost there – we’ll probably be there before the end of the year,” he said.
“The nice thing about not taking the investor’s money is, as much as they’re nice investors, they want a return at some point. If this thing’s a big success, they’ll say, ‘EA and Activision want this for about $100 million and that gives me a certain return on my investment’ – but that may not be the best thing for the game.”
Thankyou to everyone who pointed out the correct timing.
