Hi everyone!
 
The recent weeks have been pretty much quiet.
So we wanted to give you at least some news about what happened recently in the studio:
 
1- New Novaquark Office!
 
Yes, the team has moved in a new, larger office!
As the team has grown in size recently, the two open spaces we were in until now started to be overcrowded. As there are some regulations to respect in France regarding the number of people working per m2, we had to move. This is now done and everyone is really happy with the new office! For those who might wonder where we are now in Paris: well, we are still at the exact same address, in the same building... but two floors lower ;)
 
We've just finished to install properly everything today.

2- The Forum Moderators
 
The Forum Moderators should have been able to present themselves to the community last week.
Unfortunately, a few technical problems have delayed this. Most of the Moderators have been selected and the Moderator accounts are already created. However, we have over optimistic regarding the Moderator Powers customization. While in the version 4.x, this is something really easy and quick to configure, we are still currently in a 3.x version and things are far less customizable. We planned to update the forum to the 4.x version in the future, and having a powerful admin interface for Moderator accounts is one strong reason for which we are going to do it sooner than later. 
 
3- April Dev Diary
 
Due to the moving to the new office and the "end of a sprint" (Scrum system, to organize the development cycle step by step), the next Dev Diary won't be released this week but should be in the next one. We have however a few screenshots to share with you regarding a new ship made by our game designer :)

What a lovely new office. Productivity should be at a new peak when working in such a pleasant space. 

 

Also, nice work on the sofa. Didn't realize that there are also decorative elements of this kind until now for some reason. Excited to see more.

there's not a topic, they'll just show what they've been working lately. I think we'll see the new ui, since they are working on that since a few months and in the last devdiary they mentioned they were trying to stabilize it, so I guess now it may be kinda in a good state. Probably new elements, new polish/fixes, and if we're lucky more :P

That ship looks epic.

 

It would be better if you attached the sofa to the back of it though.

Excellent news! Your new office looks absolutely wonderful, although I hope the view of the striking Paris skyline hasn't been much diminished by moving two floors lower. 

Novaquark looks well at home in the new space; make sure you put on a few awesome DU banners on the walls the next time we get some views of the new office! 

 

I wish you all the best - much more progress and success. 

 

Cheers.

yeah really like that ship. Not just the design itself but how it illustrates how we'll be able to make ships how we want them and have unique designs.


As I take my first steps outside the Ark Ship I look up to the night sky and say to myself... "Can't take the sky from me."

Im a bit late, however!

 

So that means i'm basically reiterating what everyone else has said :P

Enjoy the new office, and those monitors look awesome, lucky Devs!!!!

That Ship looks awesome and really exhibits the complexity of the unique voxel system, Im REALLY looking forward to playing with that.
