Star Citizen - 2017 content/rethink - commercialise hyperspace now!

yeah, this is how good the game looks, in realtime

Star Citizen, the most ambitious KickStarter project ever, looks amazing; it looks gorgeous, it looks beautiful. Star Engine (aka CryEngine (aka LunberYard)) is a really gorgeous realtime renderer for such a concept. Not much of a netcode engine thus far, that's for sure given various ping-time server-threads, but that's on its way. That'll be fixed... or the game's got no future.
It's obvious that the various 'game modes' like Racer, Marine and Arena etc... while advertised as helpful player-training grounds and 'fun play areas' are just ways for 'code' to test their current iteration of future-P.U. (or Persistent Universe) coding.
So, what is Star Citizen? What is it promising? Does it even realize it's already holding the Genie Bottle?
The 'genie bottle' is HYPERSPACE: and how is that going to help finish the 'game' whatever it eventually boils down to? They already use hyperspace to jump ships from planet to planet, and eventually from system to system. The tech is already there. Except they don't really use it.
Hyperspace is a(n infinite) storage-rental opportunity for the RSI overlords who run the world you're playing. Private Hangars and Landing Pads and other clunky 80's interface Centralisation Zones (even Cargo Carriers) become OBSOLETE once 'hyperspace' is commercially opened up for the player... you could dial up any stored items from your itinerary, new dashboards for ships, new suits, new skins, new everything you can afford at that time. Plug in, pull out. Imagine a scenario later in your exploration of the (sandbox) game where PERSONAL QUANTUM TRAVEL is an affordable fashion item.
When RSI realize this (vast, unused gaming) resource, then the REAL ADVENTURE can begin for the million and a half subscribers already funding Star Citizen. While this sounds a radical rewrite of what's already been promised from RSI, I'd be willing to come to L.A. or Texas to share more of my P.U.-unifying thoughts with the RSI team on either a consultancy or employee basis... contact details in the blaaargher profile.
ANOTHER VALID OPINION:  here's a video from way back in October from a Star Citizen youtuber who suspects that the one-player variant (called Squadron 42) will be dropped and RSI'll concentrate their efforts on the P.U. and I hope he's right.
Star Citizen should focus all its clever peeps on the essential, CRACKING THE P.U., making that work.
