    Hi Noveans, 
     
    Dual Universe is now in Beta 1 r0.21.4 version. Please read carefully about the idle constructs auto-compacting activation.
     
    Bug Fixes
    Fixed an inventory exploit when force respawning from the login screen Fixed elements that could be raycasted through a force field Improvements
    Client/server voxel communication optimization Idle constructs auto-compacting activation: To improve performances around cluttered points of interests (Districts, Markets, Ship-Shops...), we're about to compact and give back in player's inventory any construct matching the following criteria: Based on an XS Core Unit without any container with one fuel tank tops without any weapon with a maximum of three atmospheric engines with no space engine in a radius of 1 kilometer around any point of interest having a mass up to 20 tons after 3 consecutive hours during which the Constructs have remained in "idle" (not used) state.  
    This special “compacted Blueprint” allows you to deploy your construct again for free and the fuel in its fuel tank will also be restored as well.
     
    If you don't find a Construct of yours where you have parked it a moment ago, this may be because of this so please check first your in-game notifications and your character inventory before panicking and contacting the Customer Support.

    Hello Noveans, 
     
    Time for a new update and here's the release note. Dual Universe is now in Beta1 r0.21.3 version.
     
    Improvements
    Improved minimap rendering performance Players are now able to share a territory with a right-click menu, for friends, organizations, nearby players or everybody [FTUE] Fixed and improved the input reminders during First Time User Experience
    Gameplay Balancing/Changes
    The login screen roadmap is now localized in all available languages Added a new "health warnings” disclaimer in the login screen
    Crash Fix
    Fixed a crash related to minimap performances
    Bug Fixes
    Fixed the ‘Loading rights’ query bar which was visible when looking at a foreign construct from a cockpit Updated assets for harvest rocks and fixed Natron that looked like Malachite Fixed invisible market markers on Madis Moon 2 Fixed a bug where the current core/skip tutorial was not restarted after getting out of a sandbox tutorial Fixed an exploit with Lua scripting
    Known Issues
    Windows certificate is not up to date. This issue will be fixed soon. This may prompt a warning message for new players in the first install. It can safely be ignored Uninstalling the game directly from Windows will leave the game’s files on the disk anyway. Please use the game's dedicated unins000.exe uninstaller in the game's directory for that. This will be fixed soon! Beta keys system to distribute codes to your friends doesn't work for existing accounts yet. This will be fixed in the coming days Numerous French and German localization issues have already been spotted and we’ll fix them as time goes by In some situations, you may not be able to place a Static Core Unit on your claimed Sanctuary Territory. An error message saying that it's too close to another construct is even displayed. It may be due to being too close to a District. Trying again from a bigger distance should solve the issue for now A random rendering crash can occur in some places because of some exhaustion of GPU/driver resource Voxel crash about disk/memory exhaustion [PvP] Slight difference between radar and 3D marker distance displays because radar uses the construct center as origin while 3D markers use the player position [SFX] Only blue fireworks may work for the moment The image upload feature is not accessible via the website and will come back soon [Disclaimer] Health warning message is only localized in English for now. It will be translated into other languages next week

    Hi Noveans, 
     
    This is it! After almost three years of regular live testing in Pre-Alpha, and three different Alpha versions, Dual Universe now enters its first Beta phase!
    This also means that the NDA is finally lifted. 
     
    The team worked extremely hard for you to discover this new milestone for our crazy dream project! We hope you'll see its potential and will continue helping us fixing, refining, and improving everything. Thanks for your awesome support since the beginning, it means so much to us... But enough of this, please find below the lastest release note: 
     
    New Feature
     
    Screen Unit image upload verification In order to see your content displayed on a Screen Unit, you now have to upload your images on our new website. Note that all images uploaded will be 100% public. To do so: 
    Go to dualuniverse.game and after logging in via the upper right corner panel, you will be able to go to the “upload image” page You’ll then be asked to open your Windows explorer and select your file, provided it’s in .jpeg or .png format (that’s right, no gif allowed) and that it’s under 5MB. Please note that drag & drop is not functioning at the moment, contrary to what’s written on the page There’s no feedback yet, but your image should appear after a few seconds in the “Pending Review” section on the page. Refresh it if needed. This review process can take about one week for now but we’re doing our best to proceed as quickly as possible. For now, you have to go back to the page to know its current status (this will be improved after the Beta launch) If rejected, you won’t be able to use your image, obviously If accepted, the image will appear on the dedicated section of the page. A mouse-hover will allow you to click on the link button to copy the link. No feedback will be displayed yet, but it works You now have a link starting with assets.prod.novaquark.com/XXXXX. With this copied link, you’ll then be able to insert it in a Screen Unit Right-click on your Screen Unit and use the “Quick Image” function. Paste the link in the pop-up field, validate, and ta-daaaaa. (You can also use it in any HTML content if you like) You can have 5 images validated at the same time For now, you can’t delete an image. This possibility will be added soon Remember that your content must comply with our EULA and ToS. If, for any reason, you find a way to circumvent the moderation process and display offensive content, you’ll be eligible for a sanction. Be responsible and have fun!  
    Note: On a more general note, that verification applies to all external URL used in HTML content in the game. Any external URL used must be validated or it will not be ever loaded in-game. This includes custom HUD on piloting seats, manifesto and organization logos, info button, and or course, Screen Units. 
     
    Improvements
     
    Added a clear warning about death and inventory loss [GUI] Added a confirmation message when using Force Respawn in a Tutorial session [LOC] Updated text for English, German and French languages [GUI] Added a red warning on inventory loss in confirmation popup for respawn, and removed the settings that allowed to skip confirmation [GUI] Improved display of quantas in dispensers (separate thousands with spaces, not commas, to be locale-independent) [Codex] Standardization of the codex font sizes between HUD mode and dashboard and fix of stretched images [Market] Buy/Sell orders are now sorted from lowest price to highest The downloadable package has been shrunk to 5.9 GB and the unzipped assets to 15 GB  
    Gameplay Balancing/Changes
     
    [Control] Removed reminder about ‘Shift + i’ shortcut to toggle container in the consumable bar [Voxels] It's now forbidden to put planet voxels 100m above the original ground height. There is still no restriction on constructs Temporarily removed wrecks Removed red watermark from the game Updated Beta disclaimers (long and short one) [PvP] Radar identification uses the construct center position [Organization] Removed the possibility for non-legate to deploy in the name of the organization  
    Crash Fixes
     
    Fixed a crash when sharing Construct [Warp] Fixed a crash when coming out of a warp  
    Bug Fixes
     
    [Rendering] Fixed ice moon position that was rendered on top of Sanctuary Moon [Rendering] Reverted voxel material shader to fix colored steels [Rendering] Fixed rendering order of clouds [Physics] Fixed an exploit where indefinite lift is possible when hover pads interact with a child construct Fixed ‘Share Element Publicly’ for all that did not work [Container] Fixed a bug where items from linked container was not added to the consumable bar when double-clicked [Inventory] Fixed sub-menu ‘Tool compatible’ that did not update itself when switching tool [Tuto] Fixed an exploit when dying in Tutorial sessions [PvP] Fixed a weapon exploit [Art] Fixed asset textures for Radar Atmo S and Radar Space Medium [Build] Fixed offset when placing Commander Seat [SFX] Fixed fireworks that did not explode in the sky Fixed some bugs with Sell orders from active container to distant market [Market] Fixed confusing message when player doesn’t have enough inventory space to retrieve an item from the market [Market] Fixed current scroll being lost on market update [LOC] Fixed typo in an error notification (inventory full on dispenser) [Sound] Fixed multiple audio cues that were triggered when selecting Exit on the Main menu [FTUE] Fixed the green marker that was larger than the window in the Codex sequence Fixed an issue that allowed to use items from the active container to create a sell order on a distance market [Market] Displayed average price and best offers were confused in Buy/Sell order windows (not instant one), Sell order windows displayed the prices of Buy orders, and vice-versa

This has been fixed. However, any previous territory scan is now obsolete In some situations, you may not be able to place a Static Core Unit on your claimed Sanctuary Territory. An error message saying that it's too close to another construct is even displayed. It may be due to being too close to a District. Trying again from a bigger distance should solve the issue for now A random rendering crash can occur in many places because of some exhaustion of GPU/driver resource Voxel crash about disk/memory exhaustion [PvP] Slight difference between radar and 3D marker distance displays because radar uses the construct center as origin while 3D markers use the player position [SFX] Only blue fireworks may work for the moment If the game is set in German, Aphelia sometimes mixes German and English languages while speaking. A fix is coming for this very soon [Image upload] Regarding the new image upload feature on the new website, when clicking the copy link icon on the validated image section, there is no feedback to say that the link has been copied (it’s copied nonetheless) [Image upload] Drag & drop is not functioning at the moment, contrary to what’s written on the dedicated web page [Image upload] For now, you can’t delete an image.

    Hi Noveans, 
     
    This is it! After almost three years of regular live testing in Pre-Alpha, and three different Alpha versions, Dual Universe now enters its first Beta phase!
    This also means that the NDA is finally lifted. 
     
    The team worked extremely hard for you to discover this new milestone for our crazy dream project! We hope you'll see its potential and will continue helping us fixing, refining, and improving everything. Thanks for your awesome support since the beginning, it means so much to us... But enough of this, please find below the lastest release note: 
     
    New Feature
     
    Screen Unit image upload verification In order to see your content displayed on a Screen Unit, you now have to upload your images on our new website. Note that all images uploaded will be 100% public. To do so: 
    Go to dualuniverse.game and after logging in via the upper right corner panel, you will be able to go to the “upload image” page You’ll then be asked to open your Windows explorer and select your file, provided it’s in .jpeg or .png format (that’s right, no gif allowed) and that it’s under 5MB. Please note that drag & drop is not functioning at the moment, contrary to what’s written on the page There’s no feedback yet, but your image should appear after a few seconds in the “Pending Review” section on the page. Refresh it if needed. This review process can take about one week for now but we’re doing our best to proceed as quickly as possible. For now, you have to go back to the page to know its current status (this will be improved after the Beta launch) If rejected, you won’t be able to use your image, obviously If accepted, the image will appear on the dedicated section of the page. A mouse-hover will allow you to click on the link button to copy the link. No feedback will be displayed yet, but it works You now have a link starting with assets.prod.novaquark.com/XXXXX. With this copied link, you’ll then be able to insert it in a Screen Unit Right-click on your Screen Unit and use the “Quick Image” function. Paste the link in the pop-up field, validate, and ta-daaaaa. (You can also use it in any HTML content if you like) You can have 5 images validated at the same time For now, you can’t delete an image. This possibility will be added soon Remember that your content must comply with our EULA and ToS. If, for any reason, you find a way to circumvent the moderation process and display offensive content, you’ll be eligible for a sanction. Be responsible and have fun!  
    Note: On a more general note, that verification applies to all external URL used in HTML content in the game. Any external URL used must be validated or it will not be ever loaded in-game. This includes custom HUD on piloting seats, manifesto and organization logos, info button, and or course, Screen Units. 
     
    Improvements
     
    Added a clear warning about death and inventory loss [GUI] Added a confirmation message when using Force Respawn in a Tutorial session [LOC] Updated text for English, German and French languages [GUI] Added a red warning on inventory loss in confirmation popup for respawn, and removed the settings that allowed to skip confirmation [GUI] Improved display of quantas in dispensers (separate thousands with spaces, not commas, to be locale-independent) [Codex] Standardization of the codex font sizes between HUD mode and dashboard and fix of stretched images [Market] Buy/Sell orders are now sorted from lowest price to highest The downloadable package has been shrunk to 5.9 GB and the unzipped assets to 15 GB  
    Gameplay Balancing/Changes
     
    [Control] Removed reminder about ‘Shift + i’ shortcut to toggle container in the consumable bar [Voxels] It's now forbidden to put planet voxels 100m above the original ground height. There is still no restriction on constructs Temporarily removed wrecks Removed red watermark from the game Updated Beta disclaimers (long and short one) [PvP] Radar identification uses the construct center position [Organization] Removed the possibility for non-legate to deploy in the name of the organization

    NQ-Nomad got a reaction from JudgementXYN in Alpha 2 Lua changes and novelties   
    Hi guys, 
     
    Following up the release of the third Alpha 2 DevBlog about Lua, we wanted to develop things further for the most curious, dedicated and skilled among you. The API has changed so you guys will have to redo a certain amount of stuff. This being said, you'll find below some documentation that will allow you to do pretty neat stuff so knock yourselves out!
     
    Thanks to NQ-Arlequin for his help and for writing this! 
     
    How does it work
     
    All ControlUnits (Cockpits, HovercraftSeats and ProgramingBoards) can display information on the screen when activated by the current player. CockpitUnits and PilotingSeats have predefined behavior that should suit most players. However advanced players can edit the ControlUnit LUA script to adapt the display to their needs.
    There are different levels of customization possible:
     
     
    Intermediate Difficulty: Show/hide the default widget of an element linked to the Control Unit. Advanced Difficulty: Mixing those widgets in custom panels. (New in Alpha 2) Expert Difficulty: Create custom widgets from your own data or existing elements data. (New in Alpha 2) Expert Difficulty: Create your own HTML code to display custom content on your screen. (Modified in Alpha 2)  
     
    Default behavior
     
    Cockpit view

     
    Hovercraft Seat

     
    Programing Board

     
    Hovercraft Seat and Programming Board widgets do stack:

     
     
    Adding/removing element widgets in Lua
     
    API:
    slot.show() slot.hide()  
    Default Cockpit LUA Script

     
     
    We can instead only show the Core Unit widget, and hide the Control Unit widget (shown by default):
    core.show() unit.hide()
     

     
     
    NEW - Reorganizing Element widgets within panels in Lua
     
    API:
    system.createWidgetPanel(title) → panelId system.destroyWidgetPanel(panelId) system.createWidget(panelId, type) → widgetId system.destroyWidget(widgetId) system.addDataToWidget(dataId, widgetId) system.removeDataFromWidget(dataId, widgetId) slot.getDataId() → dataId slot.getWidgetType() → type  
    Instead of having all the fuel container widgets in different panels, I can create my own panel and add all fuel widgets to this panel:
    fuelPanel = system.createWidgetPanel("Fuel Tanks") for i=1,container_size do widget = system.createWidget(fuelPanel, container[i].getWidgetType()) system.addDataToWidget(container[i].getDataId(), widget) end
     

     
     
    NEW - Creating custom widgets in Lua
     
    API:
    system.createData(json) → dataId system.destroyData(dataId) system.updateData(dataId, json) slot.getData() → json  
    You can finally write your own custom data, and display them using predefined custom widget types. 4 exist for now: text, title, value, and gauge.
     panel = system.createWidgetPanel("Panel")     -- Display “Hello World” widgetText = system.createWidget(panel, "text") dataText = system.createData('{"text": "Hello World"}') system.addDataToWidget(dataText, widgetText) -- Display a title “Title” widgetTitle = system.createWidget(panel, "title") dataTitle = system.createData('{"text": "Title"}') system.addDataToWidget(dataTitle, widgetTitle) -- Display a gauge filled at 60% widgetGauge = system.createWidget(panel, "gauge") dataGauge = system.createData('{"percentage": 60}') system.addDataToWidget(dataGauge, widgetGauge) -- Display “Weight  80 kg” widgetValue = system.createWidget(panel, "value") dataValue = system.createData('{"label": "Weight", "value": "80", "unit": "kg"}') system.addDataToWidget(dataValue, widgetValue)
     

     
    You can now combine all those methods to create your own customized panels.
     
     
    CHANGED- Customize screen using html code.
     
    API:
    system.setScreen(htmlContent) system.showScreen(1/0) You can write your own html code to change the appearance of the control unit screen. It will be displayed below the widgets, so if you want full control: you can hide all widgets.
     
    html = '<div class="monitor_left window">' html = html .. '<div class="center window">monitor_left</div>' html = html .. '</div>' html = html .. '<div class="monitor_right" style="background-color: red;">' html = html .. '<div class="center window">monitor_right</div>' html = html .. '</div>' system.setScreen(html) system.showScreen(1)
     

     
    Predefined style classes
     

     
    class=”monitor_left”         defines the area of the left monitor.
    class=”monitor_right”        defines the area of the right monitor.
     

     
    class=”grid”         stacks all its child elements on an invisible wrapping vertical grid.
    class=”center”        positions an element centered to its parent. Can be the viewport.
     

     
    class=”window”        applies the Dual Universe background and border.
     
    Well, that's it for this time! We hope you'll enjoy the info here to surprise us
     
    Cheers,
    Nomad

    Hello Noveans! 
     
    As NQ-Nyzaltar said, I just joined the team here in Montreal. I'm very happy to be here, and excited to continue this amazing journey with all of you. I am quite new to the company so I do ask for a little patience while I get sorted here, I may not have all the answers right away but do know I will do my best to help make your experience with us the best it can be. 
     
    A bit about my background, I've worked on quite a few games of all varieties (MMO, Table Top, Card, Collectible, Board and more) for more years than I care to admit. I'm definitely an MMO fanatic and will be spending just as much of my free time along side you (in secret ) as you do. I'm convinced I'm a cat whisperer (though the same can be said for coffee), and a sci-fi fan. 
     
    I can't wait to see, share and celebrate all that you build in this amazing universe together!
