  1. Does this release include mining automation units? Desperately waiting for the auto miners so I can rejoin the game.
  2. I heard about the schematics but I haven't used them yet. I've also got about 20 warp cells/units left, assuming I didn't lose them due to an update. I could head back to a market and buy the schematics. I updated my client today (5.8GB) when I saw the 0.25 patch but it doesn't bring any new content. Hopefully it delivers the performance outcomes you're looking for. I'll wait at least for the mission system before I come back. I check the news every month and can't wait for auto miners (I get not everyone wants these but its the main reason I left the game). I spent endless hours searching for rare ore even with the mining detection device telling me it was on my quadrant/sector - I forget all the lingo from the game. Auto miners will get me back and planetary PVP will keep me. There's not many other MMO space games that I can find coming that could battle it out with DU, maybe Starbase,
  3. I feel like you might be trying to make a point, but I can't quite put my finger on it ? All my stuff is floating in space far from any seriously populated planets and is only accessible by ship. You'd also need to know exactly where it is. All that other stuff you listed sounds like a lot of work (which is the main reason I bailed on the game/work simulator), although Rick Astley on loop would be cool.
  4. I stopped playing DU a few months after Beta, due to all the bugs and quite frankly it got boring. The game just felt like a mining simulator. I built a space station and a couple of ships, will they still be there when I rejoin? I'll come back when mining units are ready.
  5. I was in the same situation. I had massive industry orbiting Thades but little cash. I was playing largely in isolation, other than when I sold direct to orgs, but that's the play style Solo players choose. I was building a launch pad for planetary PVP on the edge of safe space. NQ just announced mining units and planetary PVP are coming next year which will probably bring me back, but having 90% of my industry now effecitvely bankrupt I'm not sure how long I'll last even when I come back next year. Definitely won't be buying more than a months sub to try it out.
  6. It sucks you purchased 12 months. To be fair if I was willing to spend that amount on a game I probably would have done it too, with the inflated expectations I had. I saw the annoucement with the new update and thought maybe it was something that would bring me back, but alas it was something to push me further away. I agree with what you're saying. I got plenty of invitations to mega orgs but I want to create my own game - now I've been excluded for that play style. I really hope they sort this game out, it had such promise and now it's just digging it's own grave. I lost a month from my sub, after quitting on the second month.
  7. 145 million for a warp schematic, are you serious!!?!!??! I busted my chops to get enough money just for a ship. I think the total I earned over months (before I stopped playing) was about 30m. Wow, still can't believe these prices, murdering the game.
  8. Phew, I didn't think of auto-renewal, just turned off. I left the game about a month and a half ago, this change doesn't do anything to bring me back. The game is emptying of players so they'll be even less product in the market. Maybe introduce mining improvements (auto miners, ship mining systems...) to attract people back and then add this change. I think the focus should be on making the game appealing again. I agree with other comments, it's just not fun right now. PVP is only in space, ground based PVP will be a huge improvement and playing Solo is next to impossible. I had to create LUA script for my ship to fly so I could use the gunner seat. I don't have time for Orgs and none of my friends play video games. It is basically a job simulator right now. Even some dates on these improvements would probably bring people back. I was preparing a space station (finished it too) so I could launch attacks when ground based PVP comes, but with no idea when it's coming I don't see the point of trying. I fear the game will only be hardcore org players by the end of Q1 2021. I look forward to returning when the game has purpose.
  9. Hey guys, these coords go to Alioth from my current position, is that correct?
