As Star Citizen reaches $47 million in crowd funding, Cloud Imperium Games founder Chris Roberts has confirmed that the stretch goals will continue following a community vote.

A few weeks ago, Roberts stated that the team planned to stop stretch goals at $47 million, but would leave it up to the community to decide. Following a vote, 54 percent of the community opted to continue these bonus features, but they won’t be as extravagant as they were previously.

“As I said last time, every dollar supports Star Citizen’s persistent universe… but I’m not comfortable promising additional features with each million unless they’re truly additive,” Roberts wrote. “When we have a new idea that really impacts the final game and needs the funding then we’ll offer it here… but you can expect a number of player rewards and new ways of highlighting Arena Commander as immediate goals!”

If $49 million is reached, backers will receive a free Xi’An Space Plant. “Similar to a bonsai tree, the Centennial Bloom is a very famous Xi’An plant indigenous to Eealus III that blossoms for one night every one hundred years. They sell the plants in sealed terrariums to traders. Ever since their introduction to the UEE, Humanity has been fascinated by these beautiful plants and the wait for them to bloom.”

“As always, thank you for your incredible support. We’re working hard to make Star Citizen a truly special game… but you have already made it an incredibly special community,” Roberts added.
