Star Citizen: How to Add and Remove Friends?

Star Citizen is a mixture of MMO and RPG meaning you don’t have to play alone. You can play the game with your friends. But before you can do this you need to do some important steps. This article will explain how to add and remove friends.

Step 1: Use RSI Website.

First of all you need to add a plyer to your Contacts at RSI website. There are several ways to add someone to your contact list.
The easiest way of adding new people is right from the person’s Dossier page at RSI website. Go to person’s page and click “Follow” button.
Pay Attention: Citizen Dossier is not his forum profile! You can access Dossier from forum profile page. See the image below:
There is one more way of adding new Contacts: direct search. You need person’s handle for this.
  1. First of all go to RSI website, log-in, click “My RSI” in top right part of the screen. You will see your account tab by default. Switch to Contacts tab. Then click “Add New Citizen to Your List
  2. Type handle of the person you are looking for and then click Follow. If you want to find someone using this option type his forum handle, not the Nickname!  
You can find handle of the person below his nickname in his forum posts. The nickname is always written with large gold letters while the handle is written with small grey letters. Usually they are the same but sometimes they differ. Pay attention to this. The image below shows where to see the handle.
Player's Handle
How to remove a friend? It’s easy. All you need is to find a friend you wish to remove in your Contacts list and press Unfollow button. You can do it ether from Contacts or from Dossier page.

Step 2: Adding Friends in the Game

After you have added someone to your contacts via website you can invite him to play in the game. If the person you wish to invite is not in your contacts, you can’t invite him.
  1. All you need is to open friends list using L key. Type the handle of the player you wish to find and add him to the list.
  2. Your new friend will see the notification and will also be able to add you to his friend list.

What for?

What are the reasons to add friends? Of course the main reason is for playing together. You can see if the person is online and you can always invite him to the same instance to play. Playing together is much more interesting than playing alone.

    Hey, good write up on how to add friends in game.
    There should also be a way to do it via CLI using ~ (Tilda key).
    I'm going to try to find the other method and post it.
