  4. Most of the gameplay that you can not in other games is really hard to do here, because most gameplay needs the visual capabilities of a human to play, because there are no locking mechanics that most bots need. The only real way they could bot is using vision systems and AI
  5. Amen. There are plenty of reasons to share data from a data center, but I will always prefer to manage my own tools for accessing that data.
  6. Stadia as any other streaming service is a different story and as i am working exactly in that field i have some insight. If it's not coupled with high bandwidth, low latency on both sides it quickly becomes a desynced mess. Can't even tell you how often i heard the phrase "The future are thin clients and datacenters" from salesmen in the last 10 years and still physics butchers the idea. While true, it's possible if you localize all the computing in datacenters and just stream out the compressed video, anybody with less than a 100Mbit fiberoptic connection will be sitting in the corner and be crying like a baby. I streamed dual 4k virtualized programs and complete desktops and if you are adding even the slightest bottleneck, even inside a company everything falls apart really quick. As a gamer i will always prefer local hardware over virtualization and it should stay where it belongs, company virtualization. There are plenty of reasons to offload to a datacenter but also plenty of reasons to stay far away from the idea. The ramifications of a completely virtualized world are scary at best.
  7. I wouldn't say no way. A distributed datacenter based server based system (doing the physics) with high speed interconnects would work. Google is coming out with Stadia and frankly the only reason I can see for a PC gamer to subscribe would be if it offered big machines (say 1TB main memory) for use by multiplayer games specifically designed to take advantage of them.

  9. The first thing that came to mind. Amazing in singleplayer but in multiplayer we sadly have no way to sync that kinda physics reliable.
  10. This is great for single player games, but in multiplayer games the lost of synchronisation between multiple players observing (and acting on) the same scene brings nasty issues (I saw my enemy get crushed by a falling wall, but he saw the wall and dodged) which in today's games can often be ignored (no falling walls). So synchronisation cost and effectiveness is a much more important issue than more realistic physics to a multiplayer game.
  11. Physics like that would require too many resources for an MMO. Even the hardware requirements for that single player game in the video are rather high. So it couldn't scale to a single shard game world.
  12. While this is amazing, I think the game engine has already been picked and I'm not sure they can overlay his physic's onto the current engine But my god this is awesome!
  13. Instituting this as a rule doesnt seem like a good idea. As Johnny said, RM covers a lot of this. Although honestly, I see the opportunity for a private business in this idea. A reputation list of sorts seems like something a private org could operate and run - keep tabs on other players actions somehow and, in exchange for a fee, players can access someones reputation or said list. Obviously there's a lot of problems to be solved here (information exchange with other orgs?), but it's something.
  14. When someone had purchase the highest pack available they really shouldn't see this button on their profile page at https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/profile/, this screenshot was taken from an account that has the highest package available (confirmed by support a long time ago) When someone has not purchased ANY packages they should not see the button on their profile page either yea I have an account that doesn't have a pack because of the above dive down a rabbit hole, but yet there is that option to download. Also it shows shouldn't that actually be buy pledge when someone doesn't even have one? I know nit-picky-crap that is low priority, but yea add to the to do list?
  15. This is the laundry list for the https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/profile_edit/ page can't change username, It just comes up with a cursor that is a circular do not symbol can't change email, again it just comes up with a cursor that is a circular do not symbol there is no where to opt out of the " x1 Name in the credits " that comes with all packages Display name needs to be on same page as username and email address so that is is blatantly obvious So, apparently we can submit a ticket with support to change our email, BUT it's not a change of email address that gets done. They actually create a whole new account and all your old forum stuff and support info gets deleted!!!!!!!!!! (ok not deleted, but left behind on the old account) along with this your username gets overwritten with your new email address (what a complete nightmare for someone that has multiple accounts, me) and you can't go back and change it because you all have blocked it! May I suggest a solution to this nightmare assuming you all are using some kind of database to keep track of us? ACCOUNT NUMBERS!!!!!!! This is the thing that NEVER changes, it allows everything else to be fluid and changeable while maintaining the account. We never need to see it, or know it, or use it, but our current log in info is tied to it (and old also) so that everything we do is linked to it. On top of this nightmare, when someone new comes to buy a package you all ask them for their email address, but no where do you tell this person that their email address will be use as their username for all login purposes. Now once the purchase process is complete they are supposed to be taken to a finalize their account page where the rest of the info for the account, but not their Username because of the above thing you all have done, but the port to the finalize account page doesn't always happen some blockers and browsers are apparently blocking that, and causing lots of confusion. So on this little screenshot to the right there really needs to be 4 boxes that need to be filled out BEFORE anyone can click the checkout button: Email you want to use with your game account: (yes, be very specific, so that some new gamer doesn't use their email address to their payment method or bank account, I know most of us know, but for the handful that don't, that don't know what they are doing, everyone has to start somewhere) Username that you will use to log into your game account: (again a little drop out box to explain this will be used to log in to what and replace email address, you know like the little circle question mark icons next to each item on the pledge differences page) Display Name for character and forum: (again a little drop out box that fully explains this is your character and forum name) Password: (yea we really need to get some good standards here like min 10 characters mix of letter/num/symbols going) This addition of the before checkout page and the above fix to the community profile pages would fix A WHOLE LOT OF HEADACHE. Someone really needs to get on to that fix about the email addresses being used as usernames, and because of how you have set up that community portal page with the username being the only way to log in, you really need to collect a username when the account is created and the purchase page. The other option is to use Username and/or Email for the login. Alright, there is a whole other solution to this buy account debacle: When they click on button it check to see if they are logged in and the community profile is complete, if any of this is false it takes them to https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/login/ where they can sign in and add missing info OR click the register now which should be made bigger than what it is now make that as big as the buy this pack button! Then add Display Name to the https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/register/ and everything is done in one page. They click register and are taken to the https://www.dualthegame.com/en/login (which by the way when are they all going to recognize when we log into one site our logon carries over to all the sites?) Where they login again and then get ported (finally) to the https://www.dualthegame.com/en/pledge/ where they are already signed in, have the account info good to go, and it should auto the email address and the purchase is the last part they need to do. So why can someone that is NOT on the purchase page choose a username, but someone that gives you their email address on the purchase page get opted out and blocked from choosing a username other than their email address???? that seems like a punishment for someone giving you money. Now you all really need to delete https://www.dualthegame.com/en/register and make all links that go to that page go to https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/login/ and then you have one register page that takes care of everything and is universal. UGGG this started out as such a simple email and username needs fixed, but........... look I actually really looked into this, I even bought an account and tested what the ehll was going on because I was seeing so many post in the forums of why can't i log in type crap. So This is sort of a rewrite of a ticket I made, but not really but here is the ticket number #13694 I will add one other thing, I understand you all just put up a ad for a front end dev, which I'm assuming will be taking responsibility for this mess, but why oh why have you waited this long? This is the first impression you present to every new client, and it's a mess. WE LOVE YOU ALL AND WANT YOU ALL TO SUCCEED, but please stop shooting your self in the foot, please, remember what I just said!
  16. I had the same issue, ☹️ I tired again and again and again, on several different day............. complete nightmare 😡 and then finally when I gave up all hope logged into the support page and submitted a ticket, tried 3 more times it finally worked 😂 So what I found is that you have to keep trying it. Log completely out of everything DU, forums, support page, community page EVERYTHING clear all the DU cookies (try something like CCleaner, if you are clueless like me to get rid of the du cookies or Firefox set on strict and close Firefox competely) and keep doing that log in, link, and log out clear cookies process over and over again

  19. I think you got this from https://www.dualthegame.com/en/pledge/ under the FAQ popup? First if you want a clear definite answer, I would submit a ticket to the support page and ask at the following link: https://support.dualthegame.com/hc/en-us (uggg can't figure out why the link won't create a link even with the link tool, but the support page!) STU's are Sanctuary Territorial Claim Units that can only be used on Sanctuary Moons, NQ has said that moons will be subpar in resources. We do not know how expensive it will be to place or maintain one of these units or the regular Territorial Claim units, but do know from https://www.dualthegame.com/en/ " costly protection of dome-tech " that is probably going to be very very expensive. From the FAQ on the pledge page is says this under territory units "Sanctuary Territory Units are restricted to the Sanctuary territories. These territories are located on special moons called Sanctuary Moons. In a sanctuary territory, players may not initiate any offensive action. Sanctuary territories owned by players are subject to rights management such as restrictions on mining, crafting, and building. By default, players cannot build, mine, or craft on unclaimed sanctuary territory. Sanctuary Territory Units can be purchased through the future in-game shop using real currency up to a certain limit. Upon starting Dual Universe, each player will receive a free Sanctuary Territory Unit in their inventory. For more information about territory protection mechanics, you can read our DevBlog post here." So from that, yes it looks like everyone will get one, and the higher two packages will get additional one, but it does say else where that it will require skills or additional skills (i don't remember which exactly) to place additional STUs so there could still be skill requirements to place even one. I do know that NQ is very aware that not everyone is into PvP and intend to make safe spots available to players that don't want to engage in PvP. It also say these will be available for purchase in the cash shop, and probably won't be all that expensive, BUT that is just a guess I think the main difference in packages for most people can be pointed out via the highlighted differences in packs in this picture and the rest is just fluff: I do want to say that this game is in the alpha stage, and many many many thing are going to change. They have this grand plan that they are trying to build, but actually being able to pull it off is a whole other thing. While I don't see much that will change from what we get from the supporter packages, the grand dream/plan will change and evolve as they develop. Somethings will be amazing, something will take a long time to get right, and other things you just won't like at all (I've had my own fit over some game play developments that I absolutely despise and hate). I created a https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/17197-links-to-all-things-du/ that should provide you with lots of sources of information, including a road map that is over a year old now, and the dates aren't really accurate anymore, but can show you what stage of development they are in and what comes next. There is also a discord if you want to chat with fellow DU'er. It also has a link to the server status, because servers are not 24/7 yet, but it is so worth every penny so far! I will fair warn you, many of us find this DU an addicting rabbit hole!
  20. Welcome! The game is in alpha, and many many many things are still being thought of and decided on and I doubt that we will know too much about that until later on. This is alpha 2 with one more stage of alpha before we get to beta. I can say that many of the in game mechanics are designed to prevent that kind of game play or at least make it harder, so yes that is something that is already on their mind as they are developing the game. Here is a list of link to all thing DU including a roadmap that is old and out of date, but it still is good to see what they plan to work on in what order https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/17197-links-to-all-things-du/
  21. Welcome Here's some links to get you going https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/17197-links-to-all-things-du/ There is also an official discord, which the NDA auth is about to change on https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/16575-how-to-get-du-nda-discord-nda-access/ There is also a lot of great how to post on the NDA forums and while they won't make a lot of sense till your in game I can highly recommend them so you have a head start like Mining 101 - Alpha Feedback (Section under NDA) - Dual Universe
  22. Welcome! Here's some links to get you going https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/17197-links-to-all-things-du/ There is also an official discord that you can join, but the NDA access bot is about to change https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/16575-how-to-get-du-nda-discord-nda-access/
  23. Welcome! Here is a link to a forum post I made to get you going https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/17197-links-to-all-things-du/&tab=comments#comment-116941 There is a official discord with an authentication method that is about to change https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/16575-how-to-get-du-nda-discord-nda-access/&tab=comments#comment-114616 The forums have a lot of useful how tos that you can find under the NDA section, such as the Mining 101 - Alpha Feedback (Section under NDA) - Dual Universe
  24. Last week
  25. With respect to the $60 and $120 pack, the silver one says it includes an STU. However the DU site itself says that when you start you are given an STU. Can someone clarify this, and whether the $60 gets one anyway and the $120 gets a extra one than the one included when you start? Also, are you able to "upgrade" contribution status? I have never once kickstarted a game and know zero about doing it. Though this game will be my first.
