  1. 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.

  2. 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



  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. +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.

    I think if a wipe will be planed at release paying customers will receive the Months back + Some Bonus. I am speculating but thats pretty much the basic solution.

    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?

    I think the fact that I spend so much time now since update on forums vs. building like I was... says a lot about the impact. Forums are now more fun than Chore Universe.

    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?

  8. 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.

    7 HQ tiles instead of 5 would be nice, but certainly not neccessary, you can easliy make a five tile HQ patch. Honestly doesn't matter to me, I'm good either way.


    Drop off after 7 days instead of 2. Absolutely NOT! NQ please don't bend to the whiners (again)! This seemingly minor change would have massive impact on the amount of ore people can automine and how many tiles people would optimally need. Over twice as much ore and 25% more tiles needed. Would lead to 25% more quanta sink/sunk. Bad, bad idea!


    What I do request of NQ is that they implement a basic math tutorial in DU, because way to many people don't have even basic math skills and still complain that the game is broken because they can't do some basic math! That also means you @Creator!

    Awesome community we have here
