Chris Roberts’ open world space sim continues to expand as Roberts Space Industries recently announced that Star Citizen’s fund totaled $44 million overall.

The latest feature to be unlocked from this milestone is the Stellar Cartography feature with Updated Scanning Software to go into development for the game if the funding goal of $46 million is reached. You can also vote on the next stretch goal you want to see offered.

Star Citizen has caused a storm on the crowd-funding scene since arriving on Kickstarter in 2013. The game hit its funding goals fairly quickly and over the next few months, Roberts laid bare his ambitions for the game. It will be in the vein of Freelancer, including a massively multiplayer online universe wherein players are free to choose their own path. There will also be a single-player campaign that takes inspiration from the Wing Commander franchise.

Star Citizen’s full commercial release is currently expected in 2015 for PC.
