This Man Built A $30,000 Rec Room Modeled On A Star Citizen Spaceship


Popular Thai YouTuber Bankii loves Star Citizen and apparently had an ungodly amount of money. The result: he builds a $30,000 game room (opens in a new tab) based on his favorite ship in Star Citizen, the Hercules Crusader (opens in a new tab).

Around five minutes into the video above, you see the process of building this elaborate room, and Bankii goes over the many revisions it took to achieve the space shuttle vibe. The process involved placing wooden panels over a welded steel frame. It was first assembled in the architect’s workshop before being transferred to Bankii’s workshop.

The spaceship room was built as an extension of Bankii’s studio and is accessible with automatic sliding doors, like in Star Trek, or the grocery store. It really does look like you’re boarding a spaceship from his office. All that’s missing is the hiss and steam of decompression on entry.

The “cockpit” features three 65-inch TVs, as well as a curved screen that serves as a dashboard for racing and flying games. Below the dashboard is a small HOTAS for flying games and a steering wheel for games like Forza. The PC running the show is a $6,000 custom rig with an RTX 3090.

Later in the video, you get a walkthrough of the room, which has everything I’d expect from a 1 million baht (about $30,000) PC arcade. You know, like a built-in kitchenette with space for a grill, an air fryer, and an electric kettle for making noodles.

Sorry: space noodles.

Want your own spaceship to play video games? Bankii has broken down the costs:

  • Interior of the ship: $11,685
  • Automatic doors: $1,700
  • kitchenette and cooking utensils: $1,400
  • 3 x 65-inch televisions: $4,400
  • Samsung CJ890 49-inch curved screen: $860
  • Flight controls/steering wheel: $1,900
  • LED lights: $860
  • CP: $6,650

Bankii plans to use the spaceship room to create more gaming content. At the end of the video, Bankii asks Elon Musk for a Telsa (for a collaboration, of course) and talks a bit about his success with the revenue passive. We tend to take financial advice from popular YouTubers with a grain of salt, but maybe that’s why our offices don’t have $860 worth of RGB lighting.
