  1. Smart move DU. I would have hired him too. The passion he has shown towards this project since the early days back in 2016 is clear. Congrats Yama. Dont know you personally but I sure did read a lot of your posts.
  2. Add pole dancers and cheap liquor. U will b profitable.
  3. The Freelancers... I like the sound of this.
  4. discordauth:i4snapmq7wfYDTcYqm-sjxViaV7Gcn3q0ZS24jJb9fw=

  5. Congratulations NQ !!!! Now on to the Stretch Goals and Alpha here we come!
  6. I mostly played an online game from Microsoft titled 'Asherons Call' then hung around in Star Wars Galaxies until they ruined it and then moved onto scripting houses in SecondLife while checking out most of the other online games for short periods of time. Some for a month or two, others shorter than that. Checked out Eve for awhile but got bored fairly quick.
  7. Hey, best wishes and extraordinary success with your transit venture org. This is a very cool idea!
  8. Great post Anon. Yep, NQ has a hell of a team.
  9. I don't know if this will help but I decided to back DU for several reasons. The NQ team is extremely capable and come from advanced backgrounds in robotics, AI, business development, etc. It's a 1World Shard. Its a SPACE game! etc, etc. So... getting past all the buzzwords and cool things they are proposing, at the end of the day there is absolutely no guarantee this game will fly. So, you can read all about NQ and DU just as easily as the rest of us can. My biggest decision was determining if I wanted to put any time into this. That's your most valuable commodity. You cannot purchase more of it. I like space and building enough to make the dive. It comes down to a personal decision and how much you care to risk and how many things you have on your gaming or hobby plate. I do think they have a long road ahead of them. Good luck with your decision and hope to see you in Alpha.
  10. nice.... another SWG refugee! Welcome, we have much to discuss....
  11. Hi Daphne, I'll be keeping you in mind if I need some space truckin. Best wishes to your organization and see u in game soon!
  12. I think it's too much of a gamble to release without any form of combat. I think they will have something, even if it's crude. It will be a hell of a challenge though but I think this company is up to it. The saving grace is that DU does so many other things too. I'll admit a space game without space combat does sound kind of strange. O.o
  13. Hey Anon, you are a good friend and I enjoy our discussions in public and pm's regarding our gaming history and DU. I have a hard time believing that anyone within the DU community is hell bent on personally attacking someone based on their ethnicity, color, creed or whatever. It's so easy for chats to get quickly out of hand and I am of the opinion that no one is that vile unless completely proven otherwise. I did not read the entire exchange of what was said on Discord but I'll wager that the things said were not directed at you personally but it really bothered you a lot and I'm sorry that happened for you. This is supposed to be a fun place to come and discuss our mutual interest in DU. Did the conversation end with, <jeez, I'm sorry if you got offended, that wasen't my intent?> If not, then maybe it should have, because it show's a mutual respect and concern and this could have been buried post haste. Your Bill of Rights is an amazing document. If I ever need to have one drafted (or a contract drawn up) for my private island of inhabitants of misfits and lowlifes (lol), you will be my author. There's nothing wrong inherently with your post content. I do feel however that the majority is covered already via ToS, Eula, etc. and hopefully common sense and respect. I also have a low tolerance for racism, bigotry. I would rapidly move on. We have lots to discuss and organize regarding this great game that we want to see materialize. @Lethys: We are on the same page... I, LETHYS, will track the goal of harassing, griefing and mocking around with players in-game on a more or less friendly basis where no fucks are given. I will never mock them because of their race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. If offered a chance, I will have slaves, burn down cities and kill people as I see fit.
  14. It should have been a ks reward.
  15. Hey Welcome Nashville! Yes... come dream with us.
  16. if someone said "Drink this black liquid, I swear it wont kill you" I did this a lot in college but it was blue.
  17. @Semproser... they in fact did build a ship from scratch and flew it. I totally get your caution. We been burned so many times. Personally, I think they should have had more to show us before the KS. I do agree with you on that. However... maybe it's the gambler in me... or the sucker in me but the team is incredibly talented, coming from strong positions in business and technology. It's enough of a hedge for me that says the odds are fairly good this will materialize. MMO's are never a sure thing but the force is strong with this one I feel.
  18. Good points and opinions. I got a sharpshooter medal in the military. It went into my records and I wore a ribbon for that accomplishment. To my knowledge it never discouraged anyone else to do the same nor was I chosen more often to shoot at something. Probably not the best analogy but it's similar. A better reputation, or skill will be favorably looked upon and it may provide an incentive to others. I may have jobs for people that I'll prefer to hire @ a lower rep cause it wont cost me so much. Thats where this is cool because it gives me freedom to choose and to 'size up' the person I want to hire for a security detail. Thankfully DU will not be a level based game. A reputation is one of several indicators that can add so much more meaning to my character. As to the concern regarding someone who got a few negative points by maybe stealing or bailing on the job, there should be an avenue to for that person to redeem them selves. Community Service at my house perhaps? or... negative rep people will be highly valued by Pirate organizations. (arg) I think the system should be viewable by anyone. What you are suggesting is privacy. You have no privacy son. You are living in the future. @GalloInfligo, yes this could be 3rd party implemented!
  19. What are they holding back? They're doing interviews every few days, inviting ppl to the office. So, if you get Scott Manley interested you will no longer worry?
  20. Thank you very much for the info! I really liked this: "there will be a character creation: Man, woman, face details and hair, nickname, logo, etc"
  21. Off the top of my head, a few of the kinds of jobs could be - Hauling a commodity from 1 location to another - Hiring a security firm to accompany a transport - Gathering a much need resource for a project - Hiring to negotiate a trade or pact agreement. - Destroying something as bounty Is the discussion more of a reputation system? Or a player driven smart contract system, or a combo of both? I think a contract system with a reputation marker is the wtg. I really like this a lot. Anything that removes the npc aspect and drives the player to interact with the world (and other players) is a win. Has anyone seen what Chronicles of Elyria is building into their new game? They really take contracts quite seriously and there are player penalties if you break a contract, etc.
  22. Thank you for sharing this!! The pics were great. Really looking forward to more details regarding the QA. JC does seem to have a good command of the empire.
  23. i had a funny feeling i would regret involvement with this topic. it really does bring out some very strong opinions and emotions which is understandable but I don't recall anyone being attacked. I think I'm the newest person here and I certainly don't know how things should work, but I do enjoy reading (and sometimes taking part in the discussions) regarding the early evolution of this project. There's a lot of knowledgeable and experienced ppl in here (much more than myself) and its interesting to see all the different viewpoints. i'll elaborate on a couple things then i'll excuse myself from this topic forever more. How do you justify DAC's existence if you want full emergent gameplay? You don't. We are discussing how we deal with DAC's being in the game (as a done deal) and how it should be handled. That is a decision by NQ, for better or worse. I would like to think that no one associated with this forum would be using the DAC shortcomings for stealing. Maybe there are scumbags among us but personally I have had a very positive experience with everyone I've met in here so far, but here was the point regarding a lootable DAC: No one wants to take anyone's lunch money so they cannot play DU next month. Jeez, at least I hope not. Buy your DAC, put it safely away (NQ needs to ensure this is possible), and use the dam thing to cover your monthly fee. End of Story right? However.... if you are going to use the DAC for another purpose (actually I can think of many) such as transporting a bunch of it somewhere so you can make a huge profit with another corporation or player... then yes, imo it's fair game. I hope that no one gets too stressed or assumes the worst regarding gameplay ideas and opinions. If so, then I will bet that was not the intent. Have a good evening everyone.
  24. "They do not do content." Yea... I think they do. They created the DAC. In effect, they created a commodity for the game. In fact, they labeled it a 'Dual Access Coupon' commodity. It was not created just for a coupon game time ticket. I had to think about this today after taking a very small part in the DAC debate via Discord. Initially, I was very much against having this item lootable if acquired from the KS but there's no difference between purchasing the DAC via KS or doing an advance purchase or whatever method. A purchase is a purchase. I think it should be a fully lootable item and one that can be destroyed. When there is little to be lost, people don't care. We see this over and over in other games where actions have no consequences. Would you be driving through a really bad neighborhood in your shitty Jeep that has no working tail lights and have a paper bag of 20k sitting next to you? As long as there is a way to safely store the item... If I want to take a chance and transport a cargo of DAC's with the possibility of losing it, well give me the freedom to make that decision. There will be other features that will come up on our radar that we won't agree with or will think that NQ has lost their minds over. We have a responsibility to give the company feedback and tell them if we are not in agreement with a game feature. If it makes sense and the feedback is vocal enough, they will listen because they don't have to answer to a big publisher and so far this company has demonstrated an open door policy to fan based feed back.

    I would also be totally onboard with pushToTalk. Markets and anyplace there are groups of players can be a challenge but the biggest downside to open mic is the break of immersion if you have someone that's got a lot of r/l stuff going on in the background that you don't want to hear. ie, cnn, etc. I've played too many games where it's just not implemented correctly. I'm confident NQ would do it right but I don't recall it being mentioned yet in the dev logs or phone chats.
