[StarCitizen] Alpha 2.0 is now available to all!

Does this allow us to host servers for Star Citizen?
Not yet. Remember, this is for the persistent 'microverse' in this case. Down the road, we may be able to host something of our own but we're talking about a year or two from now.

We're getting there though. :)
So, where are the servers being hosted, and dare I saw how big is the download :D.
If I made my donation like, 2 years ago, how has the state of the game changed so far?
I gave up on this game/sim a couple of years ago.
What's it like now?
SC has the most sophisticated advertizing hype in our solar system.
