  1. So say we all. (And welcome)

    Welcome to the forums and DU, real person. Feel free to ask questions
  3. The usual mineable resources will not regenerate. While they are finite, there will be a lot. So much so that it may take years to mine out a planet. Besides mining, potential future (read as "most likely not for release") renewable resources could include farming trees and alien-creatures. (Many players want wood and meat, after all.)
  4. The founder (both Kickstarter and post-Kickstarter) rewards are as follows: But wait! There's more! Founders also get some of the Supporter pack goodies: https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/03/07/supporter-rewards-for-founder-backers/ For the full explanation on how name reservations work: https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/03/09/character-name-reservations-how-it-works/
  5. The term "griefer" is a bit subjective. To some it simply means a pirate because they cause you grief by taking your stuff, right? I would rather go with what NQ have defined in their EULA for what defines a griefer. Intentionally killing the same player over and over again is an example, though they will still need to look at it on a case by case basis. Another is having in-game unpleasantries spill over to the real world. Don't do it. This is how people get banned. Point is, some players will be villains. To have good heroes you need great villains. And honestly, if a pirate robs you in such style that you are left amazed, that is the start of a legend.
  6. If you want to be evil in-game, be evil. As long as the EULA is not broken then go ahead. However. Actions have consequences. That ship you ganked might have a nation of allies that will happily return the favour on you and yours. You might be the target of a bounty or three. Or a completely random person might pick up the distress call and run you through. This is called emergent gameplay. Expect reactions. And for that non-PvPer travelling alone? Actions have consequences. You could have done a little research and been warned that there was pirate activity on that route and taken a different route. You could have hired some mercenaries to keep you safe(r). No guarantees though, but the reward of those precious minerals are worth the risk, right? Personally, I would like the chat button to be as easy, if not easier, to press as than the fire button.
  7. If you get into an earlier test you get the later tests "for free". Pre-Alpha -> Alpha 1 -> Alpha 2 -> Beta -> (this is not a test) Release So those in pre-alpha will be able to play in the Beta.
  8. I hope we do get long range scanners eventually, however the scanning most likely implemented now is the personal, very short range type of scanning to find resources as shown in this dev blog: https://devblog.dualthegame.com/2016/11/04/scanning-mining/
  9. Dropping a percentage of your gold on death is so medieval. Noveans are in the future where crypto-currency rules supreme. Instead of mining in the cloud, Noveans may mine in the dirt and transform real arm-straining work into units representing their work and time. Imagine a decentralized currency that no burglar can break in to steal. Imagine a bank in each Noveans head that no bank robber can rob. Imagine...Quanta. Does it make any sense for these bits of 1s and 0s to shower to the ground in a fountain of credits as you dramatically scream your last breath (at least from the current body)? Say "No". Say "No" to having your hard earned time stolen. Say "No" to losing Quanta on death. Long live the Quanta!
  10. Does that mean Dark, Darrk and DarkHorizon are bad? Always glad to see more (SE) players joining DU. Welcome.
  11. Found something strange in your neighbourhood? If it's something weird, not quite understood. Weigh the anchor and measure the gurgle. The game is afoot. Come enter the circle.

  12. Think more generic: an element that can DU deep space scanning. It's bulky and expensive so it makes sense to put it in ground based observatories or space stations. And eventually form a part of deep space exploration ships. +1 on the idea.
  13. At least two generations fewer than Star Citizen Silver Founders get access during Alpha 2 now. When that will happen is unknown, though we may get a better idea when the roadmap is provided this summer (Paris summer that is)
  14. Who says we can't create a themepark in the sandbox? Let's DU it.
  15. Here I thought this was ankle bracelets for NQ Devs so that we know where they are all the time: working in office like they should be xD
  16. Just to clarify more: a snapshot is not a blueprint. It was mentioned by JC in the DM21 interview. The relevant transcript can be found here: This is getting a bit ridiculous. Maybe we should ask NQ for an article explaining their intent with snapshots and blueprints (master and normal) and how they all work together. Which can be sold, copied, looted and/or traded. @NQ-Nyzaltar please
  17. That is correct. Blueprints are not safe. Master blueprints however have been planned to be account bound...(but nothing set in stone) Why are account bound master blueprints a good idea? Because information should never be lost in DU. I could go so far as treating master blueprints like DACs: unlootable until traded the first time. But since tradable blueprints can be spawned off a master blueprint (with permissions to make new master blueprints or not) I don't think it's necessary.
  18. This is effectively the same as unlootable DACs with a twist that the DAC cannot be resold.
  19. When you die in DU you lose your inventory (half disappears and half is lootable) but keep your quanta and your master blueprints. (At least that was the original plan from NQ) Lootablilty of DACs is a sticky topic. Originally NQ said they would *not* be lootable and there was a loud disproportional stink about it. So this has been discussed before...at length. You can wade though that topic here: A point that was raised is that someone paid real money for the DAC and then it got stolen. Let's repeat that: A player paid for something and got no return for it. NQ is ethically and morally bound not to allow that. And no, crying "git good noob" does not somehow make that OK. Solutions: The EvE system to bank PLEX is one solution but will take precious dev time. Another that was suggested is that DACs are unlootable until they are sold for the first time. The effect of this is that hoarding in-game bought DACs carry an inherent risk which I have no issue with. A player can pop them immediately for time or accept the risk of keeping them.
  20. Never too old to game Welcome and have fun
  21. This is growing into a bit of a series. Maybe another topic could be used to list them all so that newcomers don't miss one
  22. https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/04/06/new-build-preview/ Big features like scanning, mining, markets and money are coming along with some changes for engines (vboosters may have been a tad overwhelming). This tells me NQ have been very busy behind the scenes this year What are your thoughts on the next build?
  23. What founders generously received when the supporter packs were announced are mostly cosmetic in-game items and not entire "packs". What those cosmetics are, are listed in the post where that image comes from: https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2018/03/07/supporter-rewards-for-founder-backers/ Besides cosmetic in-game goodies: Silver Founders now get access to Alpha 2 (not beta like the would have previously) Gold Founders gets a name reservation (Sapphire Founders and up get a few more cosmetics.) NQ have stated that they are looking into allowing upgrading from Founder packs to Supporter packs as there are quite a few people asking for this. Are NQ really treating Founders worse by handing out free stuff?
  24. Founders cannot upgrade/change to supporter packs with the same account. This may change in the future, but for now, it is not possible. There are a few founders that want to upgrade, so you are not alone. Edit: ninja'd by the sky xD
