Star Citizen's no longer hitting million-dollar crowdfunding milestones every other day, but the fledgling space sim sandbox is still making quite a lot of money. Creator Chris Roberts took to the game's official website to celebrate its $39 million take earlier today.

This latest stretch goal achievement unlocks a new user-chosen star system. More importantly, Roberts announced that the next stretch goal will allow Cloud Imperium to expand the game's vision to include procedurally generated planets, ground exploration, and atmospheric combat. It's worth noting that these are far-future initiatives, though, and that the next immediate stretch goal is to fund a procedural R&D team as opposed to a concrete system.
