  1. Ay ay ay! More *fascinating* developments (both NQ and otherwise) this month (July!). Get your popcorn ready.
  2. For the month of May, it's finally here. Here's your "monthly" update from Ark Central, with a high volume of community created content showing this month.
  3. AC CAREERS: As an organization dedicated to diversity, Ark Central is looking for a motivated and confident female to join the Production Team as a correspondent, where you will have the opportunity to have your voice heard and to be part of a dedicated team of people equally passionate about Dual Universe. Please send Astrophil a PM via forums or Discord if interested!
  4. Scandalous times indeed as DU's shady political sphere bleeds over into the real world. But there's also good news. Fortunately, Ark Central is here with the facts in this month's April news update.
  5. This will be a proposed solution to a problem that NovaQuark has thus far decided not to create: losing money (that is, in-game currency: Quanta) upon death of a player. Let's dive into it. The Problem If my sources are correct, NovaQuark has stated before that such items as DACs, Blueprints, Territory Control Units, Resurrection Nodes, and Quanta will not be lost upon death. Most of these items I have listed are justifiably non-lose-able; they are highly rare and valuable or, in some cases, unique items that would dramatically affect the total universal supply of
  6. Ikr, or like some kind of monthly news broadcast *cough*
  7. No I think television networks are a far better idea than newspapers, though I would love to see both in game. I seem to faintly recall that video broadcast was already a planned if not implemented feature.
  8. Supporter packs, EVE developers at NovaQuark, and a wave of new projects and organizations floods the community. Dual Universe sees new life as March rolls past.
  9. Definitely very Passengers-esque. Can't wait for Part II!
  10. Love is in the air as Dual Universe seemingly calms down with drama and continues to mature. Also, supporter packs are coming back. Here's your February briefing from Ark Central.
  11. Now if we could just get space weather xD Love me a good solar wind.
  12. Alliances, terrorists, and spies to start off 2018. Here's your January briefing from Ark Central.
  13. From December going right into the new year, more community-shaking events throughout Dual Universe, among them more pre-alpha, a DU film, and organization meltdowns. Here's what you need to know from Ark Central.
  14. Ark Central is on the community portal @ https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/ark-central ! Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join as we create more content together as a community. Also check out and follow Ark Central on Twitter, where updates are posted in realtime! https://twitter.com/ArkCentralDU
  15. This is going to be a hot topic. Take a leaf from EVE's book and implement Loyalty Points, for example (I learned a bit of this from @CaptainTwerkmotor ). Organizations reward x number of LPs to a player for doing an organizational mission/quest/task. These Points can be exchanged for items or services that the organization offers (maybe they have a specific LP store for Corporation A, or Nation B controls a market in which Nation B's LPs are accepted by sellers and buyers), while garnering favor with those organizations at the same time. These can't practically be used on a wides
  16. November's updates are here, along with the new and improved Ark Central network! Stay tuned!
  17. Given recent events, the fourth broadcast has been somewhat delayed, but it will be coming in the next few days! Stay tuned!
  18. Hey Alex, I'm Astro. That's all. Welcome.
  19. Hey and welcome! There's a few going on around the community in addition to the previously mentioned Tortgua: Project Collective from GLSU - a city (neutral I believe) sponsored by the GLSU alliance. I would go on to their Discord to find out more. Project Emberstone from the Aeonian Federation - also neutral, and sponsored by the AFED alliance. The Terran Union also has their various capital and regional city projects in the works - Neutral, although it is sponsored by a nation and the capital obviously functions as a national capital - I would recommend hopping
  20. Although why would it be made illegal? It's more likely that a legitimate trade for boosters and enhancers would develop instead. EDIT: Did not see that this topic has already been addressed earlier.
  21. Then set conditions so that no more than x amount of Rare Element X is concentrated within an area of y cubic meters in any given location. It should be very rare after all. Also allow people to deconstruct constructs into raw resources, then make resources nonregenerating, or very slowly regenerating - so that it won’t be that profitable to control deposits.
  22. So then dev-injected money is still problematic. (Also have no idea what "that" you're referring to when you say "problem with that")
