    Kakakalaa reacted to yamamushi in Thank you NovaQuark   
    Before Dual Universe I spent countless hours scouring the internet looking for -that- game. I think many other people know exactly what I'm talking about. -The- game that would tie you down and keep you immersed for hours, where you could live in a virtual world and be part of something bigger, where you could build your dreams and be part of a whole other universe. 
     
    I was feeling rather down, depressed or sad take your pick, in the months before I learned about DU from E3. I was feeling kind of burnt out about things happening in projects I was involved in (I was a dev on Bitcoin Classic) and just generally was very mopey. I wasn't sure what else was going to come along that would suck me in and make me feel like I could contribute in any meaningful way. 
     
    When I discovered DU I was ecstatic, and I don't think there was a grain of pessimism inside of me. As soon as I saw the trailer, as I'm sure others can attest to, I knew exactly what it meant for gaming as a whole (especially sandbox gaming) and I just knew what it was NovaQuark was attempting to create. 
     
    I don't think I've been as happy in a long time, being part of DU Explorers, flying out to PAX to meet JC at the NQ booth, getting to be involved in various happenings here and there, everything Dual Universe has been a very positive experience in my life this year. 
     
     
     
    Lately, I've been feeling down again. I don't know if it's because of the lack of interest in getting people to be on DU Explorers for another episode (we haven't had one in 3 weeks...) or if it's seasonal or something else entirely. I couldn't even bring myself to write anything for NovaWrimo with all the back and forth banter and arguments between different organizations. I'm just exhausted. 
     
    I'm sure things will turn around here after the new year. Although, unless I can get another episode of DU Explorers together soon, I think I'm going to be taking a break from DU for a few weeks. 
     
     
     
    Regardless of all of that, which are purely my own problems, I think the main purpose of this was for me to say thank you to NovaQuark and Happy Holidays to everyone there for everything that you're doing for us.
     
    Even in these early stages of development, what you're doing has had a special impact on hundreds if not thousands of people. I don't think anyone here will disagree that you're doing something that has changed our lives forever.
     
    Between all the new friends we've all made, and all of the excitement we've been able to be a part of (Kickstarter was a nerve-wracking blast), we've certainly come a long way and it feels like we're not that far away from actually being able to interact with each other in-game. 
     
     
     
    Thank you NovaQuark.

    I play no role. I AM like this. I swear 
    I think that RP (like that explorer on alioth and survivor of earth) will not be that prevalent.
    Metagame (as awoxer for instance) will exist - which is rp too

    In all seriousness though, if people want to write excessive backstories to make themselves seem "important", they are free to do so. No matter how much lore they write down will compensate for the people who will actually shape the game after launch, and spoilers, your excessive backstories won't matter then, or the RP you build up for with them.
     
     
    So, you want to RP, fine, but do it in the confines of the game mechanics. You got the administrational position of a "judge" in a Kingdom? Good, pretend to be an actual judge, use the lingo involved. That's the right way to RP. What troubles me is that people write all these backstories and they DEMAND for them to be taken as lore fact (some of them at least - you know who you are).

    why are you demoting sakej99 when you were the one who spammed us directly, you were the one who spammed the discords and you were the one who instead of apologizing for spamming decided to shame the community for reacting badly to what would obviously get a bad reaction (or are you the one person on the internet that didn't know people find spam annoying?) 
     
     
    You're 'taking action' is simply scapegoating another member for your actions.

    Spam is bad, and clearly they have made a few rookie mistakes, but let's not clobber them for no reason here. 
     
    Everyone here is right, Solar Secure has permanently damaged its reputation. However, excessively attacking them isn't going to help, it only makes the rest of us look bad. 
     
    Solar Secure, I wish you good luck and hope you have learned from your mistakes.

    BAND OF OUTLAWS COMMUNITY PORTAL LINK
     
    A WORD FROM OUR FANS (LINK)
     
    Discord: https://discord.gg/mhAaKmA
     
    ________________________________________________________________________   WHO ARE WE?  
    Band of Outlaws is a growing community of gamer's within Dual Universe. Our goal when the game launches is to provide a community environment for all play styles. While our theme and preference leans towards the renegades and outlaws, we are also happy to accept traders, builders, and anything else in between. We want to encourage everyone in Dual Universe who has a heart for a sense of community and gaming to join us, whether as individuals or with your own group. Either way, we have a growing support network that anyone can benefit from.
     
    We understand games can be hard to commit to, and acknowledge the fact that people have lives outside of the internet. We won't force you to do anything, the only thing we want you to do is to have fun and play the game your way, hopefully with us among friends. 
     
     
    ________________________________________________________________________
     
    THE PLAN:
     
    Band of Outlaws wants to create a community for those who wish to play out their inner rebel, whether that be through pirating, smuggling, being a mercenary, a bounty hunter, and everything else in between. That is just a small portion of what our community is going to accomplish, as we have been steadily growing in several other games such as Battlefield 1, Conan Exiles, and several more. We want members to join a family of fellow, like minded internet nerds than just some faction in a singular game.
     
    That said, we certainly plan to have Dual Universe as our focus when the game launches, and we have several projects in our development pipeline for our community to participate in when the time comes. I'll list an example of such below.
     
    • Project Tortuga: Band of Outlaws plans to accomplish many tasks within Dual Universe with the help of volunteers within our community. We want to create a safe haven for outlaws like you and I, and are planning to construct a free port away from prying organizations who seek to control everything. Dubbed "Project Tortuga", our free port will be available for anyone to use, not just the Band of Outlaws. This project has also been extended to the greater Dual Universe community, and with the help of the Band of Outlaws, we can all have a place to call home.
     
    _________________________________________________________
     
     
    THE OVERVIEW:
     
     
    • Primary language: English primarily.   • Time zone: We accept anyone from around the globe.   • Goal:  To create a support network for players in DU, providing benefits for mercenaries, bounty hunters, you name it. We plan to have several internal services established to let you play out your character in DU. Also, blow things up and make money.      _________________________________________________________   WHAT CAN BAND OF OUTLAWS PROVIDE FOR YOU?
     
    • Security in numbers: Our safety network will you keep you and your assets safe.   • Community: We have a vast network of players with a wide array of goals in the game, we all support each other in and outside of the game world.   • Trade: We plan to have a vast trade network, where you can get the best deals by being in Band of Outlaws.   • PVP: BOO will need to protect its assets, and we plan to be very aggressive. We will teach you how to fight, and provide you with the ships to do so.   • PVE: We're not sure how PVE will be in the game, but we certainly plan to be apart of it as we know many players may not want to do PVP.   • Exploring: There is a big galaxy out there, so of course we're going to explore it!     _________________________________________________________  
    WHAT OTHER SERVICES DO BAND OF OUTLAWS PROVIDE?
     
    • A discord server that is managed 24/7 with hundreds of members playing various games. 
     
    • Website/Forums to hang out with other BOO members. (WIP)
     
    • An actual gaming community of internet nerds, with the number one focus being fun. This family is open to all. 
     
    • A chance to help create something unique and inspiring. Come make history with us!
     
    _________________________________________________________
     
    HOW DO WE OPERATE?
     
    Band of Outlaws is not out to be the next mega corporation with an umbrella controlling every sub-organization within our community. We operate under a general community management system with our Managers and Moderators doing all of the admin work so everyone else can enjoy whatever game we are playing.
     
    Within the context of Dual Universe, right now our management for this game is open ended until the game launches and we can see where we need certain positions filled. 
     
    _________________________________________________________
     
    DBAD CLAUSE - RULE:
     
    Band of Outlaws will not drag you down with rule after rule. To sum up how we expect members to behave - don’t be a dick. We’re all here to have fun, and there is no reason to be rude to each other. This includes flaming, hate speech, starting drama etc. Let’s act like grown men and women. This also extends to how members are expected to act towards other organizations/communities. Be respectful, regardless of affiliations.
     
     
    _________________________________________________________

    We are always looking to recruit new players, or organizations within the Band of Outlaws. If living the outlaw life is for you, then this is the best alliance to be apart of. We encourage you to apply immediately, and be apart of the greatest organization made for rebels and outlaws like you.

    • Applying as an organization? We are always looking for other player organizations to join the Band of Outlaws alliance.

Simply send a private message to Cybrex, and negotiations will be made.

    OUR GOAL:

    The main goal of Solaris Industries is to create the best ships modifications that one can buy - Whether it be for a small fighting ship, or for a massive space station.

     

    OPERATIONS:

    Everyone has ideas, if your idea sounds like a good/profitable one, discussions will be held on whether or not this is feasible, and if so, how it can be expanded on further to make a profit.

     

    THE PROBLEM THAT IS MONEY:

    If an idea has been developed and sells well on the market, a designer would want to know how the money would be split.

    Here at Solaris Industries we only believe it is fair that the person who first came up with the idea gets 50% of the overall earning of the modification. The other 50% will be split around to the rest of the people in the organisation who worked on this specific modification. (depending on how much they contributed and so on.)

     

    LEADERSHIP:

    While I am the founder of this organisation I believe that everyone is of equal worth, which is why everyone in this organisation will be valued as such.

     

    CUSTOMERS:

    Band of Outlaws - Confirmed

    Red Hat Systems - Still in the works...
