  1. This is exactly what the RDMS system will be for. You set different levels of access, place a players name into that section either manually or dynamically. You don't need the player to have an ID badge that can possibly be stolen from them, I don't want to have to explain how much of a security risk that is 😛 Even if they did make a "coin" or "ticket" and added the capability of Lua on it no one would want to use them. You can add code onto it and use it as a tracking device since the Lua code only runs when the player is online and in range of it.
  2. Love the wallpapers.....now, how do I tell the missus I'm taking the kids wallpaper of my phone for this? 🤔
  3. The issue with allowing players to build "roads" or "paths" without a core will always lead to griefing. There is no investment gain/loss from a player if your just allowed them to edit the world on the fly and in any territory. If you want to build a road from one city to the next then you need to plan it out and pay for it, simple as. XS Cores (the smallest) shouldn't be too difficult to build, but at least you own it and no other play can edit it....but possibly in the future they can destroy it and disrupt supply lines, who knows 😉

    This was discussed in another thread (tried to find it, but I can't see it at the moment) and there is a lot of issues with any sort of "Prison" system. In essence It's just restricting game play to certain people who you deem to be in "the wrong" by your standards, rules, or laws. I can create a law that says no body is allowed to speak/talk within my claimed tiles. It's obviously over the top as an example, but how would to expect to full enforce that and "imprison" players? You can't lock paying players up with no mean of escape/release, this is just trolling on so many levels, especially if one of your enforcers has a vendetta against an individual and refuses to release them. The only "fair" way is to Fine a player for any infractions and not allow them back into your territory until they have payed the Fine. If they refuse to pay then you can put a Kill Order on them and send bounty hunters after them. This then leads to how other orgs will interpret the threat or a Kill Order on one of their members...could lead to war! I can't wait! 😁
  5. The ID Badge part can be accomplished via the RDMS system once it's fully implemented. It'll allow you to give access to elements for different people, so a door for example. The player-made items is unknown at the moment, but i'd have thought it will be a no unfortunately. Check the DU Trello for any ideas that might already be in the pipe line - https://trello.com/b/Y6WNMd2S/dual-universe-community-suggestions
  6. This can be done without it being specifically implemented in-game. There are programs out there which you can record commands to execute a marco/key-press in-game and have it run Lua in-game. http://vocola.net/ is a good example of this, although I've never used it myself. Of course, this will only work for the person who has the specific program setup and configured on the PC, it wouldn't be a universal thing.
  7. Don't you worry about the Street Code, we got this covered! Me and Lil Marcos slinging on the block, ain't no body screwing around on our block!
  8. I'm still waiting for a Barry White cover! Great episode as always! Keep the updates coming
  9. Looks like we have some more cannon fodder to shoot down, looking forward to it Welcome to DU! See you in-game o/

    Hello!

    Welcome to Pre-Alpha DU! You definitely made the right decision to up your pledge, especially with the new r0.10 update, there is no much to test and give feedback on now. A lot of the DU community are veteran EVE players, so you should fit in well here if you're playing Valkyrie. I dabble in Elite Dangerous from time to time these days, don't get much chance to get my HOTAS out these days though, but hopefully will be able to soon!

  18. We actually have a few news outlets at the moment. The main 2 that come to mind is Ark Central (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKgKgHeCRixJcX-Lj2107Hw) which features a roundup of the last month (or 2) or DU information by @FancyVader and also Community news by @VVV_GLORY_VVV There is also Outpost Zebra (https://www.outpostzebra.com/) which had articles by members of the community on a variety of subjects from Scripting/Design to General News and organisation interviews. This is run and moderated by @Falstaf, there are many other members that also have articles posted too which you should check out! We also have DUFM (http://du-radio.com/) which is setup and run by @yamamushi (also has an Android and iOS App!) and the newly formed Silverlight Radio (http://silverlightradio.dx.am/). Amazing contributions from these guys setting up radio stations and asking nothing of anyone! That's just a selection of news outlets, check them out

    Go to Jail!!!!

    How would I deserve it? Who decides what is wrong and what is right? My in-game laws say I can kill/loot anyone and/or thing on sight without needing a reason. Are you going against my laws? That makes you in the wrong, off to jail you go!

    Go to Jail!!!!

    You best believe that if someone tried to 'imprison' me I'm calling in every last reinforcement and favour to destroy every single one of them involved. And if any of them survive then a hefty bounty will be placed on their heads. Diverge that!
  21. Don't forget tape measures!
  22. I am hoping food and water is added to the game, adds to the gameplay experience. It would also mean you have to plan large space journeys in advance and how you will survive. Water will become more valuable than gold in space

    Go to Jail!!!!

    If some ones holding me prisoner for 1 day then that means I'm paying for something that I can't use, a full day of DU gameplay. That's just wrong in my eyes If someone is misbehaving in a player built city then we don't need prison mechanics, they will be dealt with on the spot by either confrontation/resolution or death by the people involved or people running the city. When it comes to subjects such as this we always seem to forget that DU is a game and not real life. We can't have every real life service in-game, it's just not possible.
