Our teams are working diligently to make Star Citizen the best it can be, and with the current patch, which is 3.20, we have implemented several quality of life improvements that are being added to help with that. Keep an eye out for the final patch notes for the full list of changes, adjustments, and additions. You will find updated patch notes at this link.
One of the major goals with this patch is to reduce the chance of players losing their items and equipment from a Long Term Persistence (LTP) failure or issue of some kind. We have some much needed improvements in store to help alleviate any tedious inventory upkeep to prevent problems after the patch.
