    You can also check here to see what day the next test will be (But not the times.) It will say "Servers Online!" during the testing time.

    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.

    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.

    Best Regards,
    Nyzaltar.

    The Freelancers

     
     
    Who are we? Why am I making another post? What do we offer? How do I join? Who made that amazing logo? All these questions and more to be answered below
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Who we Are
    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?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Services
    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.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Recruitment
    Now we come to the title of my post.
     
    We're looking for, well, really anyone. Fighters, Builders, Loners, Team-Players.
    If you want to join an org that doesn't control you, simply click this here fancy hyperlink to be taken to our discord server.

    Who made that Logo?
    Special thanks to Comrademoco.

    CommanderLouiz reacted to yamamushi in Unofficial Discord corruption   
    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:
    https://support.dualthegame.com/hc/en-us
      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.  
    Best Regards,
    The Novaquark team.

    None of those are Player VS Environment, which is why semantics are important. The versus would imply conflict. What conflict is there in building a casino that isn't player conflict? There aren't any earthquakes you have to build up to code for, there's no acid rain which you have to shield against. Skill training is done over time anyways, there's literally no way it could be construed as vs the environment, or enemy.

I know I'm trying to keep my members interested. (And we're recruiting!)
     
    If you wanna practice ship design, There's other games with voxel building, though I can't name them, lol. If you just want a quick, free modeller, MagicaVoxel could work.
     
    Lua scripting, you could search for Lua tutorials, I'm sure there's something out there you could practice with.
     
    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.

    As for storing, I don't think you literally dump a ton of, say, iron, onto the floor, but you do need to put it in cargo containers that would take up as much space as the iron would. I'm not sure about that though, I may have misinterpreted it.
