    CommanderLouiz reacted to NQ-Nomad in [Pre-Alpha Event] Build the first City!   
    Hi guys, 
    The weekend test that occurred on Saturday, April 7th, showed that the community is creative!  Not that we had any doubts, if you take a look the recent Outpost Contest too as an example.
    It was a lot of fun and, as expected, it was a little bit hectic 
    That was kind of the point, though, beyond just giving a simple goal to the Pre-Alpha testers. We were curious to see players' behavior, of course, but also to perform a technical test too. 
    That ended up stressing this "old" r0.8 version of the game beyond reasonable and it's currently hard to continue building in good conditions in the dedicated zone. We have around 412 constructs as of posting this message and some customized Lua scripted ones are responsible for lowering performances for many players. 

    This "old" version of the game is of course not as optimized as it would be ideal, the game is still in Pre-Alpha and that's to be expected at this development stage. 
    As the next Pre-Alpha test will happen tomorrow April 12th, and -let's be honest- performances are not going to get any better with even more constructs being added, we have to cancel the event. 
    In consequence, we kindly ask our Pre-Alpha testers to avoid pos{0,2,-37.2769,175.8497,0.0000} and the surrounding tiles for a better gaming experience
    If the Pre-Alpha testers had any issue to reconnect to the game and an impossibility to use the Force Respawn feature, they'll have to contact our Support staff and we'll teleport players elsewhere to make sure they can play. 
    In any case: data collected are of a tremendous help and we already planned the necessary improvements for the future versions of the game. Some of them should be available in the next r0.10 build and we're working hard to make sure that things will be running correctly (at least at 30 FPS) for the Alpha 1. 
    Talking about the next r0.10 version of the game, make sure to read this article on our website if you missed it! It contains elements that you might be interested in. 
    We're amazed by what the community already does in the Pre-Alpha and the help it provides to Novaquark to improve and refine everything along the road. Thank you very much for your patience, understanding, and commitment!

    CommanderLouiz reacted to yamamushi in If you are spamming DU, Cut that crap out now   
    I won't get into all of it right now, as I have dealt with the situation as delicately as possible to try and undo the damage, but it appears that not only was the community discord a target of spammers (people sending private messages to everyone in the user list to try and recruit for their org) but that several other communities were targeted as well. That all culminated in discussions about the game being banned in various places, someone trying to dox me, and a slew of other issues I've tried to fix today. Someone went so far as to accuse me of being JC himself even. 
    I'm not going to drop names here now, you know who you are, but if I find out you are continuing the spamming and harassing other communities about Dual Universe, I will definitely report it and let NovaQuark deal with the situation. I've heard reports of everything from sending mass private messages to people, to joining other discords and spamming links to the game over and over, to someone joining voice chats to spam the game and harass people.
    One person even had the audacity to go into discords and tell everyone they were the creator of Dual Universe and proceed to spam the game over and over. 
    You are doing anyone any favors by spamming the game, and you are doing harm to DU's name by doing it. It's not helping any of us, and it certainly isn't helping your own reputation for doing it. 
    99.999% of org's out there aren't doing it, but one or two org's in specific are, and they are going to ruin it for the rest of us if they keep it up. Nobody should be encouraging that type of behavior. 
    I'm posting this here in the hopes that it will keep others from attempting to do the same thing, and so that the parties responsible know what their actions did.

    CommanderLouiz reacted to DylTheRipper13 in Developer Credibility and Player Faith   
    This post will point out a positive opinion of mine towards DU in the hopes of encouraging it. 
    I'm coming from playing Star Sonata for 10-15 years. I played it since I was very, very young. The developers make promises and set goals that are never accomplished. They dont communicate with each other or the community hardly at all, let alone well. It takes tons of time for anything to get done, even simple things. Long standing, huge bugs are gone un-communicated within the dev team. Also, the game mechanics are very horrible. It would take too long to get into specifics on this one. 
    Because of these things, I have lost my faith in the game and the developers. They no longer have any credibility, as the statements they make and goals they set are rarely achieved, and the decisions they make seem very misguided, along with a toddler-level communication system. Star sonata also wipes their sandbox every 4 months, making it not very fun at all to make a 'home.'
    DU seems to be the opposite. Every decision they make seems to see the big picture. For instance, DU is striving to make sure that people have free places to build, but that there will also get to be 'movie like space battles,' and motivation for said battles. 
    DU clearly communicates very well. I feel that I don't really need to explain this one. They have dev blogs, videos, tweets, gaming convention meetings, etc etc.
    DU works very quickly and efficiently, making really good decisions. Obviously, I cant expect a small game to compare in speed. However, SS had a steam launch date set for YEARS ago, which 'is being worked on' still. There are also accounts (not mine) that were given a specific ban time, and they have yet to be unbanned -- months and months past the ban time. DU has been showing results for the projects they say they are going to do. 
    The concept of what you do in DU matters, because were all together and it is all *kind of* permanent (someone can blow it up), is absolutely amazing. For me, when thats combined with the combat aspect, this is absolutely amazing. 
    Overall, Im crazy excited, and have some really nice faith built up in the devs, and I see them as credible. I have faith that they will make the best decisions possible, because of their actions and how they've communicated and the really good decisions they've made up to this point - everything from the travel system (stargates, FTLs, etc) to the voxel system, to the aspects of combat, and safe zones. DU is the game Ive been searching for for so, so long, and does everything right that SS does wrong. 
    *This post is purely my opinion*

    CommanderLouiz reacted to yamamushi in DUFM - Dual Universe Radio Online - Looking for Content Submissions and Recruiting Help   
    After a bit of a hiatus for -reasons- I am pressing forward with continuing the development of a Dual Universe specific online radio station. 
    This is being done under the banner of the in-game organization, "Alioth Broadcasting Corporation"
    I am currently working with one other person making this a reality, and we currently have a radio stream running for demo purposes that has the following capabilities:
    24/7 Broadcasting AutoDJ'd playlists  Scheduled DJ's (where DJ's can login during their assigned timeslots for live broadcasting) Real-time Album Art Retrieval  
    The general things one would expect from an online radio stream.
    My wife, who is super awesome, is currently working on a website for people who want to listen live on the web as well. This should be ready within a few days, but ongoing modifications will be made to it to add features like album artwork refreshing in real-time and an interactive schedule for shows. I also plan on eventually adding archived shows automatically, though that may not be ready for some time. 
    All of that being said, the station is not ready for mass consumption, as we have several things we want to get in place before we give it out to the world. Which brings me to the purpose of this post.
    We are currently looking for people who would like to contribute, more specifically the following: 
    #1 priority at the moment for me is finding an artist who would like to help make logos (for the website, as well as the mobile apps) We are taking submissions of all types of content, and anyone who has music/shows/podcasts/commercials/whatever is welcome to submit content that will be broadcast on the station. This includes recruitment advertisements from ANY organizations (must be safe for work).  We are taking applications for people who would be interested in dj'ing live on the station, this is not limited to music but also anyone who might want to run a talk show or anything along those lines. Again, any organizations are welcome to take part in this. If you want an hour-long show talking about your org every week, you are more than welcome to do so.   
    I am currently working on an iOS application (DUFM) that will make its way into the App store where you can listen to the station live on your iOS devices. In conjunction with this work, an Android application is also being developed. When both applications are ready for distribution, I will work on getting them into their respective app stores for downloading. They will remain 100% free forever. I estimate they should be ready for distribution before the end of the month, perhaps sooner if we can get the artwork squared away. Honestly, the only thing holding them back at the moment is artwork that needs to be created or modified. 
    All of this is being done for the community for free, I will not charge for publishing content, nor will I charge anyone to listen to the station ever. I won't accept donations for this either. The purpose of this isn't to make money, it's to bring audio content to the community. I would like for this to be a community-driven thing, hence anyone being allowed to submit content for broadcasting. I will not charge money (real or in-game) for ads being published on the station either. I'm not here to make a quick buck off people in any form. 
    If you're interested in submitting content, have questions, or are wanting to help out in any way, please contact me on discord @ http://discord.me/dualuniverse . I most likely will not be responding to replies on this thread.
    Alternatively, applications for a spot on the schedule (talk show/dj) can be filled out here: https://goo.gl/forms/H3GIX9sJQH3f6r7n1

    Hi RadFallout100 and welcome on the official Dual Universe forum.
    No, there won't be any single player or LAN Mode, because it's not the vision of the game. The goal is to gather the whole community in the same game universe.
    There are already many games enabling players to host their own server and build what they want (Minecraft, Space Engineers, Empyrion...) and Dual Universe aims to provide a different game experience. Private investors and backers have supported the game for the original vision, so no development time will be spent to deviate from this vision. This is one of the few topics that aren't opened to discussion.

    The Freelancers are an elite band of mercenaries, willing to take on any contract, if the price is right. Some of our previous exploits have been deemed:
    "Stupid", "Fool-Hardy", "Damn near unbelievable", and "Straight up Illegal".
    I think it fits well.
    Why am I making another post?
    Well the last one was in March, We need new members, and I'm bored. Maybe you can help with the last two?
    We're up for hire. Whether it's protecting a shipper, hunting a traitor, building a -insert construct-, or watching you shoot your laser at rocks, as long as the price is right, we can do it. You can even specify the amount of people you need. Perhaps you need a gunner for your ship. Maybe you need 4 to assassinate 1 person. You might possibly need 20 to topple an org of 100.
    Step 1: Click this. Step 2: Follow what F.R.E.D. says.
    (Step 2A: If F.R.E.D. is dead, mention me)
    Well, we can't help you with the last one. But perhaps you can help us help you.
    Now we come to the title of my post.
    We're looking for, well, really anyone. Fighters, Builders, Loners, Team-Players.

    Being in the community discord is a privilege, not a right. 

    There are over 900 people in Discord right now, and everyone knows to treat each other with mutual respect despite arguments that arise when talking about the game. "Be Nice to Each Other" is the core rule of the server rules that everybody has to read before joining the rest of the channels. We have done a lot of work to ensure that it stays that way.
    I get that people are not 100% happy with the way that moderation decisions are carried out all the time, but we didn't get to be this large by letting everyone run around mistreating each other without any consequences. We try to foster an environment where people can be comfortable talking about the game without fear of being attacked.
    I highly doubt that the harassment your brother displayed would be well taken if he did the same thing on the forums. Like I said before, if you want a different type of discord where you are free to openly harass people, you are free to create your own. 
    If your motivation here is to try and get me in trouble, well... I'll let my own record stand as my defense. 
    Regardless, your actions on Discord, here and (probably most importantly) the threats in private messages you have sent me have shown that neither of you are willing to contribute in a positive way to the discussions taking place on the Unofficial Community Discord. 
    I have reported this thread for breaking the forum rules (Section 3.E) and the threats you sent me privately accordingly.
    That is all I have to say about this matter.

    Hi everyone,
    The email with the link to download the client will be sent as soon as possible.
    We will keep you informed on this topic. We know you are all eager to test the game.
    We apologize for the delay.
      If you are worried about whether or not your account is set for the Pre-Alpha, here are the three possible situations:
      If your gold backer status (or above) isn't displayed on your profile page on the community portal: 
    This means you are a Kickstarter backer and you might have forgot to fill the Kickstarter survey form or something went wrong with the information you gave in the survey. If you are in this case, please contact the support and state your email address linked to your Dual Universe account and  that your backer status isn't displayed on your profile page on the Community Portal. You can join the support here:
      If your gold backer status (or above) is displayed on your profile page on the community portal, but not on the forum:
    Your account is already set to download the client. However, you don't have access to the Pre-Alpha forum section yet.
    This means you have to log at least once on the forum, or sign off / sign in again. After that, you will have to wait the next update transferring eligible accounts from the group "Member" to the group "Pre-Alpha tester". We will run several updates today to leave nobody behind, but you will probably have to wait a bit.
      If your gold backer status (or above) is displayed on your profile page on the community portal and on the forum:
    Your account is all set. You should be able to download the client, as well as having access to the Pre-Alpha forum section (if you have logged on the forum before this topic has been posted.)
      Reminder: this is a Pre-Alpha. See it as a preliminary test for massively multiplayer interaction (first time with potentially more than 2,500 players) and not as a representative final game experience yet. There is a high chance that no progress will be saved and Blueprint mechanics are deactivated for the time being as they are being reworked. Thank you for your understanding.

    The Novaquark team.

    I'm 100% sure they won't make any sort of singleplayer mode. Because that's a whole other thing they'd have to program, it'd take time away from the actual game, and it's not what DU's about.

    CommanderLouiz reacted to NQ-Nyzaltar in Pre-Alpha FAQ and Rules   
    Hi everyone,
    Many of you have asked for more information and clarification about the Pre-Alpha.
    To make things a bit easier for everyone we’ve compiled our answers into a this FAQ. 
    Who will have access to the Pre-Alpha?
    All backers with a Gold Founder status (or above), the members of the ATV group,  a small vetted “Friends & Family” group, and the Novaquark staff.
    When exactly will the Pre-Alpha be accessible?
    The first session of the Pre-Alpha will take place Saturday 30th of September:
    - from 3.00 pm to 12.00pm (Midnight) CEST (Paris Time). 
    - from 9.00 am to 6.00pm EST (NYC Time).
    - from 6.00 am to 3.00pm PST (Los Angeles Time).
    We will also have a “trial run” on Saturday September 23rd for the ATV group. This will enable us to run some tests with a smaller (100 players, all under NDA) group of real players before scaling up our efforts for the Pre-Alpha one week later.

    The Trial Run (ATV group ONLY)  will take place Saturday, September 23rd:
    - from 3.00 pm to 12.00pm (Midnight) CEST (Paris Time). 
    - from 9.00 am to 6.00pm EST (NYC Time).
    - from 6.00 am to 3.00pm PST. (Los Angeles Time).
    Additional Pre-Alpha times and dates will depend on the results of these initial sessions. Between these sessions , the development team will improve the game according to the feedback and bug reports submitted during the last session. We will try to give access on a regular basis going forward, but please understand we are looking at these as tests and we do not intend to have the server available on a 24/7 basis yet.
    How will I know when and where to download the Pre-Alpha Client?
    If you are among those who have access to the Pre-Alpha,  we will send an email to the address linked to your Dual Universe account. Instructions for downloading the client will be provided. You will need to be logged into your Dual Universe account to download the Pre-Alpha client. Before you can download the client you will need to agree to and accept the EULA and NDA (which may be part of the EULA). Please note: Downloading and using the client means you have explicitly accepted the EULA and NDA. 
    Can I tell people I am in the Pre-Alpha?
    Unlike many NDAs, you won’t have to “hide” the fact that you are part of the Pre-Alpha Tester group. The reason is simple: it will already be publicly displayed on the forum and the Community Portal because of your Backer status (Gold and above) or the ATV membership mention. 
    Can I share screenshots and videos from the Pre-Alpha?
    Pre-Alpha testers can make screenshots and videos, with two conditions:
    No screenshots or videos may be posted prior to the NDA drop. This means you can make and save videos and screenshots for sharing, but may not post them until Novaquark officially announces the NDA has been dropped. While sharing screenshots and videos with people outside the Pre-Alpha test group is strictly forbidden, we also strongly discourage any sharing between Pre-Alpha testers during the NDA: unless you are 100% sure that those with whom you share screenshots and videos are trustworthy, don't share anything. The reason: if a leak occurs, you will be held responsible for it.  
    All videos and screenshots must retain the “Pre-Alpha” watermark. This is to make it clear to anyone viewing your content that these assets were created using a very early, non-final version of the game.  This is important as we do not want Pre-Alpha footage and images to be confused with later Alpha, Beta, and Release versions of the game.  Imagine someone coming across Pre-Alpha footage several years from now and making decisions based on what they are seeing because they think it’s final, representative footage, and not test footage. Obviously, we want to avoid this kind of confusion. 
      Failure to respect these conditions may be interpreted by Novaquark as an intent to damage the reputation of the game and the company (with any and all consequences that may follow), depending of the situation. 
    If you feel you have captured footage or images that have a very positive value (like tutorials) and should be shared before the NDA is dropped, you can contact a member of the Novaquark staff by submitting a request on the upcoming Customer Support portal or by sending a private message on the forum to one of the CMs: Nomad, Nunc or Nyzaltar). We will then submit the footage or the screenshots for approval to the upper management. However, if the answer is negative, please respect it.
    What about the NDA regarding discussions of the Pre-Alpha?
    Any and all discussions of the Pre-Alpha must take place in the Pre-Alpha area of the forums. This area will be available only to those members of the community who are taking part in the Pre-Alpha. Everything posted in this section will be under NDA. To help people recognize when they are reading or replying to a topic in a section under NDA, the background color will be different from the public forum sections.
    As we know the forum is not always the best way to discuss, especially in real time, we are currently in discussion to let the community have a Discord server dedicated to the Pre-Alpha. Moderators of this Discord will work closely with Novaquark staff to ensure that only Pre-Alpha testers will have access to it. Of course, the NDA will apply also on this Discord channel.
    How will bug reporting work?
    While the dedicated Pre-Alpha forum section will be the place to give feedback on the Pre-Alpha and discuss with other Pre-Alpha testers, we also plan to open a Customer Support portal where all Pre-Alpha testers will be able to report any bugs or technical difficulties they encounter in-game or to while launching the game. To be able to see the existing topics, post new ones or reply to some, you will need to log in on this portal with your Dual Universe account that has access to the Pre-Alpha. As long as the NDA is in effect, no discussion there should be made public.
    What about the NDA and adding content to the Community Wiki?
    No information related to the Pre-Alpha can be added to the Wiki until the NDA is lifted.  You may prepare texts and assets offline and hold on to them until the NDA is lifted, but absolutely nothing should be posted to the Wiki until such time. The reasons are obvious: this would be one massive leak and some of this information will likely change during the Pre-Alpha. 
    What happens if I violates these, or any other provisions, of the NDA?
    Violating the NDA will mean your immediate expulsion from the Pre-Alpha and you will be banned from the Alpha and Closed Beta tests. There may be additional consequences depending on the severity and nature of the violation.
    What are the specs required to play Dual Universe in Pre-Alpha?
    Please keep in mind that the following configuration is based on the fact that a Pre-Alpha or Alpha version of a game is not fully optimized. These may mean the specs stated here higher than may be required at launch. These specs only apply to the Pre-Alpha and should be considered as being subject to change as the game approaches a final Release version.
    CPU: Intel i5  (i7 may yield better results)
    RAM: 16 GB minimum
    Graphic Card: nVidia GTX 960 (or Radeon equivalent) with at least 2GB RAM.
    HDD: 40GB required for installation and Cache (a SSD Hard Drive may improve performance)
    Operating System: Windows 7, 8 or 10.

    As we mentioned several times in the past and more recently in our post-mortem on Gamasutra, your support has been a proof that lots of gamers want Dual Universe to happen. In consequence, our current financial partners are now even more eager to support us. This new round of funding plus crowdfunding mean that, as of writing, we raised $7.4 million in total since the company was created in 2014. 
    What does it change? Not much, in reality. The Kickstarter funds have been invested in production and necessary daily operations for a company and we continue as planned our road to Alpha for this September. 
    Despite these good news, we stay careful in our approach and must pay attention to every little details everyday. This amount of money may surely sound big but truth is: we're not "rich". Modern video game production standards, Dual Universe's scope and ambition and the fact it's an MMO impose costs that need to be considered with care. 
    We need continuous support to make this dream game happen. The more you are with us, the more we can remain independent and strong in future negotiations with financial partners or even publishers. 
    Press release for gaming outlets can be found on our website here. 
    Thank you very much for your commitment.

    CommanderLouiz got a reaction from Veln in Mobile Terrain   
    My guess: You can definitely "suck up some dirt" and place it in or on a construct, thus "having mobile terrain". Now, will you be able to make grass grow on it? Who knows?
