  1. Hello Noveans, We have released an update today, DU is now in version 0.30.0 - Mercury, the changes can be found below: New Features Talent Reset As part of the mercury update we have refunded all talent points for all our players. Upon logging in you will find all your points available for spending and your queue empty. Lua API revamp Added new `player` permanent slot. Represents the local player, usually called MasterPlayer in the API. This gives access to name, id, nanopack mass/volume, headlight control, parenting, etc. Added new `construct` permanent slot. Represents the control unit construct, usually accessed through the Core Unit API. This gives access to name, warp status, pvp status, more physics data, etc. Implemented new naming convention for events. Added left mouse click to system input actions. Changed container content acquisition behavior to a fixed minimum inter-request delay of 30 seconds. Added more item API support in containers and industry API. Added specialized API for all engine type elements such as wings, adjustors, atmospheric engines, space engines, airbrakes, space brakes, vertical boosters, hover engines, and rocket engines. Added Lua API for weapons. Added Lua API for plasma extractors. Re-enabled HDR color support for lights. Added Lua left mouse click action for onActionStart, onActionStop and onActionLoop events, as "leftmouse". Replaced all string status values with integers for better comparisons and to be future-proof. Redesigned the Counter element API to extend functionality. Redesigned the Telemeter element API to extend functionality. Added several useful functions on different elements. All existing APIs affected by the revamp are deprecated and not deleted. More detailed information is available in the codex and on the forum here. Novean Overview We're adding an interface which provides an overview of your general account information and unlocked cosmetics. We’ll expand this feature moving forward. Alioth Exchange We’re deploying a new installation in the heart of Alioth where players can apply to build a display to advertise and sell their creations. Applications are open to all players who want to advertise their ship shops, markets, Lua scripts, organizations, voxel libraries, or anything else they create in Dual Universe. Space Delivery Challenge We’re adding a new challenge to the “Challenges” tab in the VR Surrogate Station:, the Space Delivery Challenge. Like the Air Delivery Challenge, but in Space! Use one of the supplied ships to deliver packages from surrounding space stations back to your starting point to earn quanta.

  2. Hello Noveans, We have released another hotfix today, DU is now in version 0.29.15 and the changes can be found below: Bug Fixes [Links] Element links are now instantly updated when another player modifies them. Fixed a bug preventing players from replacing destroyed elements. Fixed ‘ElementPropertyUpdate’ for streamed properties that were not correctly forwarded to observers. So players would not see the engines of a ship running if someone else was piloting. Fixed an issue where constructs would not appear to move for observers. Some radars would appear broken and also resulted in the so called "rubberbanding" issue reported by the community. Thank you all for your support! - Deckard
  3. I will attempt to give a better picture regarding blueprints, what I can confirm is that in the event of a reset you will keep: Any Core Blueprints in your Nanopack. Any Core Blueprints inside Packages in your Nanopack. Any Core Blueprints inside Containers on constructs in your personal ownership. Any Core Blueprints inside Packages inside Containers on constructs in your personal ownership. If you're the Super Legate of an organization you will also receive: Any Core Blueprints inside Containers on constructs in the organizations ownership. Any Core Blueprints inside Packages inside Containers on constructs in the organizations ownership. I hope this clarifies it a little bit.

Don't show the warning/info icon (concerning territory status explanation) on territory not owned by the player or one of his organization). [FTUE tile selection] Fixed owner of an owned territory not being displayed on first click. Fixed a looping calibration sfx not being correctly stopped when existing calibration modal in loading step. Allowed the use of '-|' in bookmark name & description. [UI] Fixed dropdown being cut in the mission search panel (for destination dropdown). Added a small delay (100ms) before doing a drag start. This reduces risk to unintentionally start (and end) a drag, when quickly selecting multiple items in inventory. Regen crafting queue display on active container switch. Avoiding ingredient list of futur recipes displaying available ingredients that were in the previous container. Removed the final "." in the renamed territory modal title. Fixed a bug where the player could enter build mode during FTUE landing sequence. Fixed a bug where the player could not achieve a tutorial requiring nanocrafter if they had previously performed a search in the item hierarchy. Added confirmation pop-up for back and forward tutorial step keys. Fixed displayed acceleration at low framerate. Crash Fixes Fixed rare crash on game shutdown. Fixed rare crash and freeze during loading. Fixed uncommon crash when entering a Gunner seat. Fixed a crash when accepting a barter request twice. [GunnerUI] Fixed occasional crashes when changing cameras. Known Issues Space Mining Units and Plasma Collector Lua API will not yet be implemented, but will come in a future minor update. The Objective screens in the Outposts are Work in Progress. Not all tutorials will trigger. The text on the Objective screen indicates which tutorial triggers and which is coming soon. [FTUE] Speeder step sometimes fails to deploy, speeder too far. We are investigating the issue, this issue can be self-resolved by disconnecting and reconnecting to the game. [FTUE] Localization has not been completed for the new tutorial and is currently only available in English. Thank you all for your support! - Deckard
  11. We hope everyone who attended our Fools Defense event held on our PTS on April 1st had fun. We especially did, and thanks to our fellow Noveans, we had a ‘blast’! As some of you might remember in our previous announcement for the Fool’s Defense event, there were some prizes to be had. We are pleased to announce that the winners have been chosen and the Wheel of Foolish Fortune is ready to start spinning! Which prizes will our foolish actions provide those that dare take a spin? Find out on the PTS on Saturday April 9th, 14:00 UTC for all the wheel spinning action. After combing through our logs with a fine tooth comb, we have chosen six participants whose bravery, dedication and foolishness left the server room sizzling. We are now inviting them to prove their luck and talent once again by taking the Wheel for a spin! Walter - For landing the final blow causing the destruction of the defenders station, many developers were harmed in the process. (Yes, we checked the logs thoroughly.) Copperlein - For being so good to us on the PTS, yet destroying Nautilus A’s Core, and breaking our heart. Dronko - For destroying Nautilus B’s Core, and again breaking our heart. (Et tu, Brute?) Wolfram - For being devs’ best friend by reporting bugs on our forum. Mastuga - For being such a Trooper with the amount of ammo (pew, pew, pew) they used during the event. Honvik - For forcing so many players to return to the resurrection pod. Skyreaper - For coming back to life so many times we thought they were a cat! Winners please present yourself on the PTS on Saturday, April 9th at 14:00 UTC for your chance to spin the Wheel! If you are unable to attend, a Novaquark representative will spin the Wheel in your place. Prizes will be given out shortly after the spinning of the Wheel has concluded. Please note: All players will need to go through the new FTUE on the PTS in order to participate in this event, please allow yourself enough time to go through it. Players who wish to join in the fun on the PTS are welcome, teleport over to PVP Platform 2 (::pos{0,0,2729026.2814,-98851321.2156,-1455512.2758}) where you can witness first hand the spoils of war!
