  1. Honestly, i think what NQ intends to do, giving Elements a finite number of "lives" is quite reasonable, they could combine it with "less max HP per lost live" though. In reality, when something stops working, you can nearly always repair it. Even thought it might not work as well as before. But it has its limits and at one point you would have to replace so much, that the costs are higher than just buying/creating a new one. I do, however advocate for the possiblity to turn elements into scrap.
  2. yeah, sadly most of my fears from 2 years ago came true, i wish they wouldn't have :/
  3. farmin, eating, drinking etc. has been discussed several times in the past, all thats left is too see how NQ decides about it.

    reforesting the cut down trees should actually be doable without to many issues, and i would definitely support that, everything else needs, as you said, creative solutions.

    forestry is a hard thing to implement, remember that the planets are generated procedurally, that means every tree has a fixed position. If you let people plant trees you would have to send the location of potentially thousands of trees to every player in the vincinity of the planet.
  6. laws, sure, get your organization to enforce them, artificial restrictions? surely not. Star citizen isnt exactly comparable to DU.
  7. Guys, there will be no automated process of taxing/air control/whatever, these kinds of extremely restrictive and harassment enabling mechanics will never happen in DU and honestly, i don't know why you would even want to suggest something like that, its an extremely bad idea!
  8. An absolute NO! to flying restrictions. First of all its completely artificial, even if we have airports in real life, that doesn't mean you can't land where ever you want, its just that you'll be fined for that. Secondly you can't have player randomly crash against invisible walls just because someone declared that space as no fly zone, that's true for people who jsut pass by as well as for attackers. And third: Those "no fly zones" would lead to a far more annoying possible griefing, like locking down the airspace around others constructs, building invisible mazes etc.
  9. but thats only related to structural dmg, just because your ship survives it doesnt mean that you didnt turn into porridge.
  10. If our ships really get dmg upon hitting the athmosphere with a high speed (devblog) i thought it might be good if that isnt just limited to the ship. While asking for a complete inertia model, throwing people against walls when accelerating a construct is probably to much, i'd suggest a damage over time effect when players experience extreme accelerations. This dot would then be weakened by a certain degree if players sit in seats/benches while accelerating/decelerating, depending on the type of seat. A simply bench would only work for slightly to big accelerations, while special high speed seats could prevent that damage for very high accelerations. This would add a bit of realism to the game and at the same time force people to design their ships with the required amount and class of seating opportunities.

    anything calculated locally is rather easily modified by 3rd party software
  12. my personal guess for the pre-alpha / alpha transition is december 2018.
  13. doesnt change the fact that everyone remote controlled by andoid is easily exploited with bots
  14. In the end in DU you can only be a real neutral faction if you ally with everyone (or rather pay quanta to everyone)
