  1. Ive returned to SE and Im happy with it. (I am a builder type, no pvp person) Decided to check back here and find this announcement and I think it is pretty positive. So if I read the post correctly, I have played during BETA, so I get 2 weeks of free game time for free when the game launches? Is a subscription needed to keep your builds? So do they follow these present rules? Edit.I also must say that the forum is filled with things from NQ and not from the community
  2. oh man.... Ive read so many me, me, me, me posts from pvp lovers, its becoming embarassing to me. 85% of this game is PVP zone, but you still want more, up to 99% or even a 100% of all area MUST be pvp. Also the me, me, me, me, with the ores. Like special ore should only be availabe to people who want to pew pew or risk to pew pew. Builders cant make elevators or gates,! I could agree with 1 or 2 pvp planets, so there can be war in gravital air (thats why they could introduce gas-giant planets'') and could have, like 5 times more T5 ore in those zones. And tell me, if there is no safe-zone, would you build a base, that will take 8 months to complete only to see it destroyed in 2 days by [fill in a name like Legion]? The list of players that rage-quit because of the loss of 1 m-core while hauling or d/c while trying to land, goes on and on... losing a whole base WILL make people throw important stuff(read: desktops, laptops, deskchairs, keyboards, mouses, coffeecups, headsets) through unopened windows. I can assure you that As a builder, I was satisfied with the way it was set up after 0.23. I could build and mine whenever and wherever I wanted. Never been into pvp territory in 16 months of playing. The fact that 'Legion had won DU' didnt bother me at all. I would never meet a Legion pvp ship because I do not come into their space. So I wont see their builds unless its on a tube video. And so, this game was fine as it was: a sandbox building game (with pvp possiblities) and expanding the building part would also benefit the pew pew people. Because pew pew people also like to build a home base, they also like more cockpits, they also would like to colour their wings and engines on their ships. This dumb focus on pew pew play is not the thing that needed attention. I think having a pet would attract more players to come back than the 'pvp-improvements' they have made. They could have introduced pets, that have abilities that boast your character, like boast building speed or adjustor power(being explained as agility). Also let them have talent points also, maybe only develop when you take them with you. Just to display all the pets (read: DU pokémon) would be something people would visit (builders that visit pvp players, wtf???) Character creation, is something that this game lacked for almost 2 years now, (there is a new update that adresses this, I think) just a spacesuit colour, in an mmo space game. Please help me God, at least give us more humanoid races, like having a tail, or a shark's head But as I was saying in my first post: nq is trying to proof me wrong, let see what will happen
  3. What is in this game that make people think this is the next gen EVE? Seems more like people try to talk this into the next EVE. Its because of power, who will have the most power in a world wide single server mmo. Thats why lots of people want a wipe, they have lost against Legion and want a new chance. Thats why some want no safe zone and planetary warfare, they want to rule all. Although the planets still look empty as bleep, its an investment for the near future. If they do wipe, nq can make this solar system half the size for better performance. Remove some planets, nobody is building there anyway. Naaaah. I still think this game was at it best after 0.23. For me it was too bad that they didnt focus on expanding the building part. sliding doors xs, l or xl. Making use of the element skin tab, having more tools to work with soil. Have more types of cockpits, hybrid engines, waterengines. People could pew pew or build or do whatever. The more you can build the more you can do whatever you want. And yes, CS builders know that a build project can take months or even years. And after all that time, nobody but you knows about it. The space station I had took me about 7 months to build. Make quanta, get the ore to build, buy the spacecores and elements, building a better ship.... And that was just the groundwork, no decoration or anything. Decorating it fully would take me at least another year. Why? Because there is lots of other things to see and do in this game. But what I did miss the most in this game is the survival aspect. Health bars for food, drink and energy. Actually making use of the plant element for fruit, the sink for water and chairs and beds for power-up. Ok Ok Ok last story: Late summer 2021 I was on DUCreators website, searching for bp's. When I got the coords, I flew over to alioth, I thought it would be a 2 day trip. Well I spent over 2 weeks on Alioth, admiring the bases and malls that where build where I needed to pick up the bp's . Some bases where abandoned, I knew that because their shops had old cheap prices. Christmas time!! I would buy up everything until I could carry no more. If they owners would come back to the game after a break, they would have seen that they didn't build all that for nothing. Sabretooth was here!! Too bad you cant leave a message in the message box for the owner. Then I went home to Thades. And you know, landing on my station really felt like coming home.
  4. Nice trolling, its Abominus, an american transformer. And I do not want pvp to be removed. If the story of this game is that we have found a new home and we must build our society, then focus and try to extent the building part. The reason people want to destroy, yes that is a complaint from me, but its still a free world and people should do as they please. But I can surely vent my opinion on this, can I? If you want to wake up after a 10000 year sleep and the first thing you think is: how do I get to be the most powerful and be able to destroy my neighbour, then thats your free opinion. I just think thats nothing to be proud of. There is absolutely no need for players to ever get into the unsafe zone, since you can just warp to the outer planets. But where are the extra building expansions? We can only make balls of soil, wtf??
  5. What also bothers me with this pvp-war thing, is that we have travelled halfway across the galaxy for 10.000 years to find a new home. Leaving our once beautiful earth behind. Finally we have found one, and within 2 months of arrival we are killing each other. Whats the point of saving our race? Also, I get it if there are big factions that fight over large area's of space and planets that have been aquired over the passing of centuries. That have large factories, space stations and bases. But the planets and space are still empty here, there is no legacy or anything to fight over. Its just fighting for the sake of fighting. Oh wait, they introduced alien cores. That piece of magic is what its all about after finding a new home, and at least its something. The point of relocating to another galaxy was to build a new world, thats what that arc-ship was for. How are we supposed to build a new world, if nq keeps limiting things. So, as some are claiming that pvp space fights in this game are very cool. Good for you and enjoy this, what I call, discount space invaders. Everybody has got his own poison. But for me it still should not be the focus of nq, it should be the building part. As we are BUILDING a new world, not fighting for a world. I like that there is PVP space combat, no matter how fugly, but (I repeat myself) the focus in building a new world should be building..
  6. This game was fine as a sandbox building game, kind of a big empty LEGO world. Lego builders dont need entertainment or gameplay, they just enjoy builds. Cities skylines players also just like builds, they like to just follow an npc and just look around. Train-set builders also do nothing but to watch their builds. I think this game would attract so many builders from every corner around the world, that it would always have enough ingame players, and maybe not too many at once as some would always take a break. Too bad nq didn't focus on the building/trading part and give us more things to build and trade with. They gave us a false start with unrealistic sized doors, couches and beds, 3 types of toilets, the most useless empty plantcase and no xs space fueltank. Also crazy core sizes which make no sense to me, why 63(127-255-511) voxels and not 64 (128-256-512)? Instead of adding more types of wings, doors, cockpits, trees, npc elements (ive made these myself with voxels later on, even made them interactive with detection zones and transparent screens), nq cut down on builders. There is lua for ships on water, something nq should have implemented themselves. I know for sure people would start digging canals (because of the ugly random generated planet with puddles) and just sail on them for fun. Videos of ingame builds would flood the tube channels. The builders needed more things to easily make quests so we could make more adventures, to aquire items to open doors in mazes and labyrinths. Now it was only possible in lua. I think, that players would subscribe just to see the amazing world that has been build by players. Nq could have focused on building(what this game started with). Expanding the game with the lua-ideas, just like other games implemented mods from the community, and adding elements that have a proper function. But nq focused on destroying. Pvp, limiting and wiping that is. And now you are here, a full wipe (so no world) and a few players. Pvp bashing by me: Pvp in this game is the fugliest version of space combat i have ever seen, even space invaders is more dynamic, at least you can dodge in space invaders! Territory warfare in this game would be just as ugly, boring and untactical as spacewar in this game is. You cant hide behind an asteroid, so why would you be able to hide behind a hill? Pvp in this state kicks out the creativity of building. Pvp in this game reminds me of those old atari 5600 games, where the box art was nowhere near the ingame screenshots or the gameplay. Tactics do not exist in this game. In the end, I am sure that this game had more potential for a sandbox building game, than a pvp game. But hey, nq is trying to proof me wrong, so ill keep an eye out. Edit after 5 likes: Its about this game being fine after 0.23
  7. NQ's wipe is like: someone you love but everytime you ask him/her to start a relationship he/she says 'I dont know'. Asking every day for a month and still: I dont know... Can we just date, can we just be friends on Facebook? I dont know... So the thing imma trying to say is how lots of (ex)players are acting on this forum. Its almost pathetic to read and see. Dont you guys get the message??? Make up your minds and continue with your lives! No means no!! I myself renewed my sub in January, 8 days later the pancake-wipe update was introduced to me and I instantly quit. I am a grown man over my 40s and I do not fool around. The deathmeter-wipe put me on the edge and the pancake-wipe pushed me over. I wish all the ppl who play and who dont play lots of fun, but people please.... Be a sensible adult and quit being stubborn.
  8. Omg, you are acting like such a fanboy!! NQ doesn't need your protection, didnt you know that? As for the multiple orgs, its only logical to add another org instead of training lvl 5 when you need more cores quick. And I do not think that I am such a genius that Im the only one who came to that conclusion, 16 months into this game. I also have 5+ mill talents points still to be used, I think I would be one of the few players who can instantly train the new coming core talent system to its max. Im a proud builder in the form that im proud of ALL my builds of many games. I still have my cities xl maps from 2009! So if this game decides to delete my builds, I dont like it and now I moving on to another game. I haven't logged on since this announcement and I have never used a MU (so demeter almost made me quit but I stayed to empty my inventory on builds). And now i cannot continue building. This, and the (imo) changing community is what has driven me out of this game. And 'a good excuse' doesnt do anything for me. NQ could have said: we lower the max amount of cores because we don't like spaghetti. It would still be the same for me and I would gave the exact same reaction. Ive got into this game because of the things it advertised back in 2020. Not of the things its advertising now. So I move on. Before we had 275 cores times 5 (5 orgs) and 17 of our own which is 1392 cores. Maybe even more with sub-orgs. NQ wanted to cut it down to 3% of that!! Come on man... If your company asks you if you wanna take a paycut to save the company, you would never expext a 97% paycut. I would quit that job! And so its the same for me in this game. How can 1 prepare for a 97% cut? And so after many protests, tge cut down is 'only' 85%... Which is still a lot for me. If you cut anything I really like in life to 15%, then Im not into that no more. I wish others nothing good or bad, just carry on with your lives and Ill carry on with mine. I am not going to "rearrange my constructs" with other players to save them. That is something I will not do. I took the risk of paying for an unfinished game. NQ took the risk of loosing players. Its just life. Yes you players who stay can all haz my stuff. I hope they will bring much joy to others.
  9. Nope, still dont like it, I dont like to be restricted in a former free world. You gave me the chance to save my current 175core spacestation(org 1) and the ship-shop (org 2), but afterwards I cannot expand it. I also wonder how it is going to affect my current slots. If you save my station and shop, will I stil have 100/100 slots? And yes, under 40 orgs have maybe over 200 cores, but most players have multiple orgs that work as one. I have 1 org that handles the spacestation cores, and another org that handels my ships and the shipshop. So its a bit, you know, not fair to say that there are ONLY 40 orgs that are over the 200 cores. The setup for this game made it so that we had to make 'divisions' for our builds. And the game looks empty already, with just landscapes and few buildings. How are you at NQ going to implement content with these building restrictions? Also Id like to invite a few devs to come to my base and you can takedown my "MEX 5 series Flight" M-core ship. Maybe then you will realise how much time that takes, and you wont just throw a statement out that reads: "just tear down your builds".
  10. So you have the money but this is because of the long run? So youve decided to destroy our builds, waste our time and take our money without a proper a decent warning. Just like that? Rapping about a vertex tool for many months but leave us in the dark about these new limits and trying to limit players with max 42 cores (because of protest its 200 now, your plan was 42!!) I do not think thats decent of you, and I feel tricked by you guys. I think that you guys were afraid people would not extend their subs if you would warn us about this update, and that is correct! Therefore I think you tricked a lot of us by not being sincere. Since this is, by far, not a sudden decision at your side. So ive started up an old *insert game* map of 4yrs ago, guess what? It is still there and working! Most games ADD stuff so in the future you can just expand old builds. Ill be glad to help you with your server problems. As i have no desire to build in this game anymore. Ill make a personal video of my builds in this game so i can at least look back at what ive achieved and wanted to contribute to this gsmeworld. It was fun while it lasted
  11. Ive played a few games that were in development, way before release. Other than tweaking a little bit here and there, the games mostly added stuff. It was more like: wow, Im going to upgrade my base/avatar/vehicle with this new cool option! In this game its the other way around, introducing a game and then take away features. Better to start small and end big, than to start big and end small. Maybe its true that you better stay away from investing big in this game and wait silently until release.
  12. You are right that im not an alpha backer, but it also is a different company right now. And Im not into what you were promised, Im into what I have experienced. If you think my comment is meaningless to this topic, then Im sorry. I might have understood it wrong.
  13. I see a lot of people here are easily convinced. Only took NQ 1 time to be a little bit honest and lots of people agree like slaves. And peoples also believe that it is the complete truth, while im convinced its not. I think a expensive and difficult project like the vertex tool is costing more money than it will bring in. But hey, lets introduce that and cut away something else!! This is not a problem that nobody could not see coming, why such a drastic rule now? They could have said in July: in a year with release, there will be a core building cap, so dont go overboard with your builds. But they act like its something they had never seen coming. Everybody knew there was a 30.000 player test, but it seems nobody at the office was thinking about 30.000 players having 100 constructs with each construct having 100s of elements. But now everything is a suprise and will cost too much money to implement. I think a lot of players are afraid that this game might make it, and thats why they are afraid to quit. So they suck up every excuse NQ has for changes and hope for the better. I am certain the goal is not to make this game work, its to experiment with the things they can do. Most developing games ive played just added stuff to the game before release. This one only removes stuff. Ill be watching DU vids and posts and keep an eye on this 'game'... See if it will ever be a succes. And if it is a succes, what kind of game is it?
  14. Well its definite then, all my projects are now cancelled. Poorest and lamest excuse again it makes me want to vomit every time I read it... The "We listen to the community but its too expensive so we are sorry" excuse. Oh please stop it! Im not going to let you use me anymore for your deceiving plans. So my answer is: see you around! See if that helps anything for ya! As for the "can I haz ur stuff" bit, nq provides this for you!
  15. Im rage quitting this game, im in rage of the devs with their stupid limitations which gets all the fun out of the game. Also every limitation is a message that you have done a lot for nothing. I can say goodbye to all my work of the last 10 months... What a waste of time this game turned out to be! Please be honest and put this game back in alpha state, because this is NOT a beta! Could you devs start a discussion of the game that started in august 2020 and the game you are trying to make, so we all can be honest and know what we can expect?
