  1. Most MMOs with persistent player owned assets implements a cyclic vulnerability timeframe. Traditionally, the owner (or allowed by RDMS) is able to change the vulnerability period once in a while. This makes the possession immune to most actions outside of this vulnerability window where it can be challenged. I like the part where NQ plans to alert the player via email. But in truth, in 2018, NQ should implement webhooks and or APIs

    Rogue AI

    I love the Idea ! This rogue AI could assimilate beaten constructs and create a huge threat worth allianceing as far as humans are concerned
  3. So, you were only looking to play the game for a short period of time ? I can understand why this system is frustrating for you then. For the player looking at the game as an evergoing long term adventure, like EvE and other persistent mmos, their is absolutely no problem with the DAC/PLEX system running as an alternative to the monthly subscription. As a player not infusing $$$ into the game , you would still be able to earn money otherwise using the game mechanics. As long as it is not possible to progress your skills faster using money, DU can't be "pay-to-win".
  4. Congratz on beeing promoted by Chris Roberts ! https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/15515-Note-From-The-Chairman
  5. Thanks guys ! Eager to test, for Science ! and best of luck for the KS
  6. Maintenance cost: Each planetary construct has a "maintenance cost" in resources or money. The bigger the construct, the bigger the cost per day. You have to fill in a container with it. If the container is empty, the construct starts to degrade and disappear overtime. Since the world is big, I would hope for a small maintenance cost.
  7. just a word to announce we are now recruiting for Dual Universe (in french) http://forums.deim.fr/topic/2968-comment-postuler-deimoscorp-sur-dual-universe/
  8. source: https://board.dualthegame.com/index.php?/topic/841-ask-us-anything-event/page-2#entry17019 This is great news! but still no official words on planetary map.
  9. I played T4C, and we had to extract (and print) the gamefiles to have maps! It was fun, for a time
  10. It can be tricky to implement. I am worried that they decide it is not worth the effort.
  11. I am almost sure they got that covered. Since you have a dynamic load balancing between physical servers, with a max limit of player each, you could move as far as you want, you will still be handled by a server being below this limit.
  12. The atmospheric thruster from this concept seems to feet on a balloon. In the gameplay video, you can see its logo on the action bar too.

  14. That, and "Atmosphere" too, which is a mesure Unit for air pressure
  15. I understood that too. If you look the gameplay video between 1:49 and 2:49, you will see some of that. At 3:30 you can see JCB editing a small ship with a voxel tool.
  16. A Kickstarter campain doesn't have to provide an immediate access to playable-alpha. I can see them doing a KS starting in September, and opening alpha access Q1 2017.
  17. I believe it was said stargates can "dial" any other stargate in range. This is the best solution from my point of view. You still feel the massive scale of the universe since you have to make multiple "jump" in order to reach the end of the explored universe. No need for 12 stargate in the same place to have access to all the in-range connected systems around. The fuel cost to travel via stargate was not revealed yet. You may want to minimize the number of time you have to use a gate.
  18. Beware, pre alpha footage will only show what they have in pre alpha. This may will change along with the game completion. It is easier for them to make flying bricks now than when they will have implemented all the constraints.
  19. In my experience, "ingame holo-things" never do the job well. Too many fluff, no usability. Its just a light show I was more speaking of a real browsable , zoomable map, like google maps/earth
  20. You can ignore signatures for selected ppl or all together. But I agree, this should be a moderation rule, in fact, IPB have a setting that can be defined to limit signature heights if the administrator want it.
  21. The problem is not my browser, but the server response time resulting of the stress on the database behind it. It took 12.91s for the web server to start delivering a response. From my point of view, the fact that the whole organization listing is served without server side pagination plus the lack of an HTTP caching mechanism is to blame. The more player/orgs, the more this delay will grow, resulting in the frequent need to restart the database server at some point.
  22. That is assuming thrusters won't need another fuel than electricity
