  1. I stuck around for 7 months after .23. I decided if they are going to soft wipe my industry, i'll focus on ship building. The constant economy disruptions (like right now) make that challenging but my biggest problem is how feedback is completely ignored. I believe they were dangling the idea of a wipe even back in summer 2021 when i stopped playing. NQ is still playing "will we/won't we" wipe and its insane. A game that relies on a large number of players to spend large amounts of time making this living world; to treat them with such contempt is incredible. I watch from afar like many, hoping a real studio will take over and make DU what it can and should be. My 2 cents
  2. Just add a quanta tax to assembly lines or something. Not this "print this, spend time and quanta, sell it to someone who has to buy them weekly like fuel" wtf. Feels like a horribly complicated way to do a tax OR a lazy way to do a fuel-like energy mechanic. RIP DU
  3. I haven't done real PVP since the days of gold cube meta, but ya this is a building sandbox willing to risk losing the builders by going after the PVP crowd and trying to please everyone with a shoestring budget. PVP focused gamers have so many options, This game would need to be really finely tuned to keep them around. Us builders have nothing better. Maybe it all pays off but I don't think it was a smart gamble.
  4. I too am waiting. I would like to make & sell ships but a few things prevent me from wanting to. -Element "stacking" seems random -Voxel complexity seems out of wack and subject to change surely -The economy is flooded with easy mission cash so it feels pointless to even sell something -Wipe maybe?? -lack of buyers who even care at this point Most importantly, who knows how long NQ can keep the lights on.. Why spend over 100-200 hrs making something when they might just nerf it, wipe it, or close shop all on short notice. They need us to build a fun universe to attract players but they are currently killing it
  5. Can we please address the notification system? A super legate gets a notification for every calibration. This alone cloggs your feed to the point where you can miss important things like cores being abandoned. This applies to the super legates' own cores because its all the same feed. The new mechanics will add to this. Please Introduce sorting and/or ignore to types of notifications so we don't have to spend so much time going through it or risk losing constructs. Thank you
  6. Will the wiki be updated with the recommended number of alts? What is that number now? 10?
  7. Really gonna go and make it that much harder to build big things. You falsely advertise populated cities in your videos but are making it impossible. [filtered]ing joke
  8. Rockets are still nice for instant power. Lots of fun and can be used in emergency situations. Also you can design a hauler that has rockets to get it out of alioth if overloaded. This keeps weight down vs adding more engines you don't usually need.
  9. There is a way to see some information but idk what this is, lua or?
  10. I think calibration messages should have a toggle or go to a different area. The issue is if you happen to be super legate, you get dozens maybe hundreds of calibration messages daily. Well you also have to go through and read to make sure that nothing is being requisitioned from that org, your personal org, and your character itself. In theory if you pay all taxes, that shouldn't be a problem but who knows what bugs/exploits are going on. This is better for idea box but since none of this is read anyways its going here
  11. Ya i think they meant it as a nice gift to more active players at the expense of less active ones
  12. +1 for the surveys. NQ, ask opinions on there. I'd like to see responses but thats not as important. Also most of us don't even know what we really want or what is fun in practice so that might not even work.
  13. I feel _________________ This game needs ________________ NQ is ____________ and should ______________ Insert dissertation here.
  14. Don't tell exploiters its only meant to be 2su
  15. Man OP, you write NQ a PhD Thesis every other day
  16. Also been a while since the last in-game poll. I guess their dumpster they throw feedback into is full
  17. I'm going to go out on a limb and say they just don't have the money for that, sadly. Further, I think the excuse will be "its a beta" or some such. This has probably been brought up before, maybe answered by nq already somewhere?
  18. Yep.. just making things harder with nothing added and leaves me asking "why bother" when I log in and start something. Why gather ore? Why build that ship? Why build anything? just to pay tax?
  19. Someone already mentioned new player experience but I'm giving it a try to give detailed feedback. I am not new, but am currently going through the game on an alt as a new player with 0 quanta on sanc. I have 4 autominers now on Sanctuary but my tile only has 13 bauxite (others are just over 100). I automine a total of 116 ore per hour. I received 10k T1 from calibration. I can sell that to bots for 250k or less. Schematics to build M industry, parts, and refine pures is 5m or so. I can do all tutorials and get 1.5m? That means I have access to 2m maybe. I can get to space barely but will take much more time to get a ship that's able to do missions for example. I can't buy a DSAT (18m) or schematic let alone equipment to build one in order to asteroid mine. What that leaves is a waiting weeks for autominers to produce enough ore to make quanta or surface mining for 10s of hours. Even if I work my way up to mining on Alioth, still lots of afk waiting. Besides joining an org and getting free things, that's the options here. Is that intended? is there a solution in the works? Others have said get rid of early game schematics. That would help To clarify, my issue with this is there's nothing to do early game because factory and asteroids have a huge quanta barrier.
  20. Will there be a balance of T1 ores on planets? As in providing all t1 ores on every planet like before so that people can make fuel at the very least
