Imagine a universe that combines the freedom of exploration, the thrill of combat, and the unique challenge of building a life in space. Star Citizen puts ultimate control in the hands of the player, whether you're making your way as a cargo hauler, exploring the vastness of space, or scraping out a living outside the law, you will navigate through a mixture of procedurally generated and handcrafted worlds and interact with a variety of characters.

Welcome to the Star Citizen installer maintained by the Star Citizen LUG! Please make sure to read through the technical instructions in the installer, which are important to prevent game crashes. For help with the installer or just hang out we invite Linux Star Citizen players to join us: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/orgs/LUG/
Performance may be choppy the first couple minutes after visiting a new place or performing a new activity while shaders compile. Subsequent arrival should not be choppy.
If you receive a Runtime Error you can continue using Star Citizen by dragging the dialog box to the side, but in-game VoIP and FoIP will cease to function until Star Citizen is restarted. Drop in to the LUG group's chat and forums, we have custom runners to work around this problem.
Please make sure you have all Wine dependencies properly installed, else your game may crash during start-up. A good starting point is this post from GloriousEggroll: https://www.gloriouseggroll.tv/how-to-get-out-of-wine-dependency-hell/
Furthermore, to prevent crashes at areas with lots of geometry, the game needs a Linux resource limit named "vm.max_map_count" increased. To do this, execute:
sudo sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=16777216
(Consult your distro's documentation on how to set this permanently, or ask a LUG member)
