    Why would you ask for a griefer magnet on your name?
     
     
    "Oh look, a Kicstarter guy with a fancy ship, you know, we would grief the newbie over there, but our 300 ship blob will now gank THAT guy with the title, just so to piss his Kickstarter pride off".
     
     
    Titles and the such, are pointless. We can ask for our organisation's Rank to be shown in the title, that way it carries more weight along with the organisation you represent.
     
     
    Having "I backed the game" title only shows to people you believe you are entitled of respect in my opinion and the aforementioned titl-in-organisation showing, will outweight your Kickstarter title by far if the organisation is powerful.
     
     
    I want to back the game and I only ask for something more pulpable than hollow titles and part in a lore I didn't take part in (AKA, stories emerging from blowing up buildings in the game :V ) . 
     
     
     
     
    I want a functional game that can last me for years worth of playing it. And maybe a spiffy duster coat with the NQ logo on the back. Just for that bragging right in me to be satisfied.

    Thought i'd share my own (first attempt, work in progress). I'm going for the star citizen banu merchantman style, with a modern twist and sleek stealthy lines. I'd like a frigate sized ship that handles more like a fighter. I have a dream ship in my head - this kind of resembles it

    I would build a vast shanty town, the kind of place that makes you sad just to see pictures of. 
     
    and underneath it would be a bio-weapons factory, or whatever the least tasteful and most destructive weapon the game allows me to build factory.

    Game server renting? How? Will guys who will run pay-2-win donations ask for JC Baillie to give them his server tech, the one he patented?
     
    "CAn I haz free tech to makez my serverz and sell pay-2-winz ?"
     
     
    No, noone will give you the tech they built and patented for free. The server renting from minecraft doesn't apply here. You can se up a Minecraft server on a toaster. It won't run with 1,000,000 players on it at max cap tho.
     
     
    The devs are not making a WoW cloen ,they make a niche game that nobody has made so far. And you know what, while it's not monopoly, good luck on companies run by EA and Korean-MMO-F2P-crankmachines like NCsoft catching up to such a game.
     
     
    DUAL is also not space engineers. DUAL is developed as an MMO, SE was developed as Minecraft in space and got out of hand.
     
     
     
    Nice try though. You clearly don't understand why DUAL will be P2P and you and everyone else who claim "P2P IZ TOO EXPENSOV, PL0X MAKEZ GAMES FR33!" will pay a subscription to enjoy the things the game offer.

    DarkNovation reacted to yamamushi in I Was Bored and decided to try to build a Core Unit   
    I decided to try to build a scale model of a 25cm Dynamic Core Unit this weekend, and because it's too late for me to go get the last few things I need to finish it up, I decided to post my progress anyways.
     
    This is just something for me to put up on my bookshelf, and I did rush through it (which is obvious), I see it as more of a proof of concept as I plan on trying to 3D print one in the near future. That depends on my boredom level I guess. 
     
    According to the Facebook post which accompanied the news about the Dynamic Core Unit, this is a 1 voxel sized unit, and is one of the components necessary to build a spaceship or hovercraft vehicle. 
     
     

     
     
     
     
    I started by cutting out a 25cm x 25cm square of posterboard, and tried to keep the various components to scale. I also found a handy calculator for handling the cone measurements that made things easier:
     

     
     
    I then cut out transparent sheets to help with the glowing effect I planned on adding:
     

     
     
    I added blue lighting powered by a 9v battery:
     
     

     
     
     
    And with the final pieces added:
     
     
                                
     
     
     
    I am going to finish up with some black and white paints, and sanding the edges to make them smooth. The glue on it needs to dry for a while now though. I'll post updates when I've finished all of it. I'll probably need to go through and fill the spaces with putty and those will need to be smoothed out with sandpaper too.

    DarkNovation reacted to Anaximander in SUBSCRIPTION - Please don't make the game Free-to-Play.   
    As Einstein said, and this is true story : "Pay-to-Play is the only thing keeping the Universe together ~ George Washington"


    Please don't make the game Free-to-Play, because as the industry has proven, every game going free-to-play ends up being ignored after 3 months of its release because it's consider another rip-off "generic koean MMO big-boobs female models" MMO that came out Korea's MMO factory-assembly machine.


    As we are lucky, their crank on that machine has broken as of late and the flow has halted. Thank you Black Desert for that, perhaps you put the nail to the Korean MMO genre coffin. Lineage 2 kept you one foot out of the grave for all those years.


    So, make the game Pay-to-Play.  Why? Because, as our adversaries on the Free-to-Play front have done, I'm going to providei inaccurate statements that may seem legit.


    a ) Pay-to-Play helps NASA : Have you ever looked into NASA's budget? Neither have I, but I can tell with certainty, that they have aliens found and locked up in Area 51.


    b )Lizard poople ruling the world . Have you seen one? EXACTLY, they hide very well.


    c ) Who let the dogs out? UH?! Woof, woof-woof woof-woof!


    d) The fact 15 USD is a researched price of subscription that in 2004 seemed affordable and on this day, with all the inflation goin g on, is actually costing more like 8 dollars in 2004 money. But hey, don't stop economics science stop you.

    As you can see, my years in drinking beer over my blood-alcohol level capacities, lead to some pretty constructive criticism of the Fre-to-Play model.


    In all seriousness though, we need access to Area 51.




    If any Free-2-Play people has anything to say, see this video first. Spoiler alert, I'm a Honey Badger.

    On a more serious note, the only time I did any ship building to the extent that DU will have was in Shores of Hazeron. Used their offline designer to make the shell, then went in game and imported it, then slapped on the internals. We'll have something similar in DU with their virtual sim for building everything, so I imagine I'll just take the same steps.

    Possible Hauler concept, could add up to 10 of the containers(the icoSpheres) extending the length of the ship in segments, these ones being to carry fuel but also could be swapped out for other storage options such as large cargo containers.
    Placed in some of my Stalker fighters for size comparison.
