  1. AEONIAN FEDERATION The Aeonian Federation is an intergalactic umbrella organization comprising both sovereign Member Organizations and Individual Citizens who share a common vested interest in progress and prosperity. But what is it, really? •••Too Long, Didn't Read••• Enrollment: Accepting citizens and organizations - enjoy the privileges of Aeoniancitizenship. Timezones: Global Primary language: English Focus: To promote progress and prosperity among our members. •••The Pillars of the Federation••• A Military Alliance The universe is a treacherous place. We at the Federation hold the belief that military strength and solidarity are critical to our members’ interests in the face of those who seek to violate them. Our Non-Aggression Pact and military cooperation are only part of Aeonian’s firm dedication to security. An Economic Syndicate Operating an advanced and wide-reaching network of markets across the universe, the Aeonian Federation is a key player in the galactic economy. With additional banking and investment options available to members, the Federation unlocks the path to prosperity and financial security. A Visionary Pioneer As a progressive, forward-thinking organization, the Aeonian Federation is always striving to do what has never been done before. We challenge the traditional “guild alliance” paradigm and emphasize the importance of member and organization sovereignty. We push the technical limits of what Dual Universe represents, undertaking bold enterprises such as Project Emberstone. Rest assured: there’s no such thing as “boring” at the Federation. A Community and Family The Federation isn’t the typical dictatorship guild. Although we may appear large, we’re also a tight-knit family dedicated to player cohesion. With our revolutionary Nexus hubs (the ultimate social network) and frequent game nights, the Aeonian Federation offers the best of both worlds: the friendship of a small community and the security of a large, established organization. •••The Administration••• In order to keep AFED running smoothly and its members happy and safe, the Syndicate employs a variety of structural techniques and facilities to ensure the integrity and continued existence of the Federation. These make up the Administration of the Aeonian Federation. Take a look below: Directorate The legates of the Federation, there to maintain the integrity of the entire system. Magistratum The legislative and judicial division, there to resolve internal conflicts/disputes, create internal policy, and oversee diplomatic relations. Grand Assembly The collective assembly of the Aeonian Federation. Composed of representatives from each member organization as well as individual citizens, the Grand Assembly is a place of discussion between the members of the Federation, where actions and resolutions can be diplomatically discussed. Administration All of the various other departments necessary to make the Federation function. Many valuable teams and departments are part of the Administration, including our Development Department, design teams, Defense Department, and Communications Department. •••The Verdict••• Aeonian is a choice. Your choice. Let your dreams take flight.
  2. Aha...so there is a way to buy out the Ark area. Excellent. +1 this idea
  3. Yes yes quite. Thank you for bring up these, ah, excellent points. I am sure we all have very real concerns of the possibility of these controversial creations...but the real point of your post here as I understand it is to introduce the idea of a player council, indeed similar to the Council of Stellar Management present in EVE. Well, allow me to steer you to this particular thread, for the idea has already seen the light of day. Please peruse it at your leisure. Yours sincerely, Astrophil Democracy Killer
  4. I agree with the cryobed part if possible...but I would say ragdoll if a cryobed isn't nearby. Similar to Avatar...so ragdolling would probably result in death 9/10 times...but there's always that 10% chance
  5. Welcome Skwarka! Please note that we are not liable for any bodily damage or dismemberment caused by space whales.
  6. Welcome, reincarnation of Saffi!
  7. I would so love to be able to perform ship surgery.

    Independence Day: Resurgence...that joke of a movie
  9. Welcome to DU, skylord! Glad to see another interested party joining the game (no pun intended). Might I suggest first starting with the various Devblogs - they offer a wealth of information and should help you get fairly acquainted with the general concepts and mechanics present in DU. I'm afraid your wait for the perfect space MMO isn't quite over yet - there's still a while to go before alpha but in the meantime, make yourself at home here in the forums. As for organizations, there is a whole multitude of them to explore...oh wait! What's that down there? Oh my, one organization already conveniently linked below! What an excellent starting point! In all seriousness, however, there are many many organizations to explore here. Peruse them at your leisure! Happy foruming - it's all you'll be doing for the next week. Astro

    Space Whales

    Don't steal SW Clone Wars's ideas
  11. Just to clarify, that didn't literally mean thousands of actual players. It was the server testing a load equivalent to the load of a few thousand players. Still, I agree - would be very cool to see some of that
  12. The movie Elysium used this concept where John Carlyle's reboot program was stored in his brain, and upon being injured, the neural program was destroyed, but not before it had been transferred out into Max's brain. Interesting idea - could prove for some fascinating gameplay, but not too sure on the practicality of implementing it.

    Hello........it's me. Welcome to DU!
  14. BlueDrake42's follow-up video on NQ's response video: Nicely played NQ! Very nicely played.
  15. It's an interesting question, because although players are supposed to be able to create their own weapons, the actual visual effects (lightning bolts for an arc laser) and actual damage effects, as well as the energy input required to power them would still have to be coded into the game by devs.
  16. Actually it goes even broader: It's all just constructs until we classify them as buildings and ships and Death Stars. From there we can futher classify ships.
  17. Of course it is. But I hope I'm not ever traveling alone. There's power in numbers.
  18. Ah...well apologies can't help you there I'll just be cruising around in my personal capital ship. Who said personal ships had to be small?
  19. Simply paste the YouTube link in and it will automatically embed the video. For that video you may have to go to YouTube first, then copy the link.
  20. This would just be so paradoxical that I'm not sure it would be worth it to implement.
  21. The interior layout can also be custom-designed. Some elements may be premade, such as consoles or cockpit seats, but nothing prevents you from decorating the interior and placing elements wherever. Note the Tweeted picture below: https://twitter.com/dualuniverse/status/594202143768367105
  22. NQ ought to start a reality TV show about these forums.
  23. That is the episode - Starship UK in all its glory - granted, they had captured the star whale and were torturing it into moving when the star whale had been supporting the ship of its own will...sad story.
  24. Is Ripper Intelligence planned to be a weapons or ship components manufacturer in game?
