    System with rails or monorails for use like a train?

    So, I haven't really participated in any but the very first few Alpha sessions, so I'm not sure about the current state of development. But I think, in theory, you could build a tube, put a hovercraft in it with smaller engines all around to keep equal distance to all walls and then just slap massive engines on the back and front. The small engines keep you from getting caught on corners, the large engines propel you through the tunnel. Just need to build everthing smooth.

    Place your gaming Curriculum Vitae here!

    So, I started out with Industry Giant 2, which got me addicted at age 8. Over the years, I've amassed quite an amount of games, like Payday 2 GTA V Black Desert Online 7 Days to Die Civ V Empire: Total War (the best Total War) HoI 4 Mount and Blade: Warband Space Engineers Garrys Mod CS:GO RimWorld Rainbow Six Siege War Thunder Prison Architect ARK Factorio Civ 4 Total War: Rome 2 XCOM 2 Paint it Back MGS V Planetside 2 Europa Universalis 2 Titanfall 1+2 I could go on, but these are the ones where I have 90h+ I play mostly shooters, strategy, logistics games (and never will I enjoy driving/flying. I suck at that) Oh, and a rhythm game called Osu, which is currently my second-most played game time-wise

    Can we hope to one day have power armors and/or mechs?

    I mean, on release: No way. But, I guess if we manage to finance the game for long enough, everything is possible

    Lasers Are Overrated.

    It doesn't have to be that complicated. Just make laser-weapons higher in the skill tree than bullet weapons.

    Ore vein scan results as sellable items

    That would also encourage competition among mining companies, since the positions of rare ores will be rather valuable. And about the problem: Well, if it's mined already, bad luck. When you buy info-tablets from last year, don't expect them to still be valid.

    Post Positive

    I hope you are victorious today in everything you do. (Also, MLP movie made me really happy, as well as the S7 finale. Hope S8 will be great too)

    Moon & Asteroid

    There are plans to make it all dynamic and realistic, but thats for the far future. What I could see happening would be planned events where an uninhabited area is chosen for either a starfall or smth like that or maybe an asteroid is introduced to game world that's rich in ressources (I know I'm using the asteroids for basically everything ressource related, but for me they are the only good solution to our finite ress problems...)
  8. One possible solution to the "destruction of matter though x" could be reintroducing the destroyed matter via an asteroid belt that forms around the starting planet. No player would keep trac of every single asteroid, so I wouldn't break immersion too much if new asteroids appeared in the belt (except when you purposefully completely mine a certain part of the belt, but thats your own fault then really) These asteroids would contain mostly dirt to fill up, but also very small amounts of basic ores, as to keep the starting planet a good starting point.

    An idea about construct vs construct

    Not exactly. The russian name is Rutschnoi Protiwotankowy Granatomjot, the english Rocket Propelled Grenade is technically false, as not all RPGs work like that. (Only thing I can contribute to this petty squabble, since I have no clue of physics)
  10. Fun is secondary while there is progress to be made!

    Command Ships and Ground Vehicles

    In larger fleets there certainly will be a command ship, probably equipped with lots of radar (as a "top-down map" would be not the most efficient in a 3-dimensional space) where the leaders of fighter squadrons coordinate targets for their pilots. As for ground vehicles, currently none are planned (as far as I know, been out of it for a while), as wheels would need a lot of calculations done by the engine as to not constantly clip through the ground.

    Where would your Ideal base be? Poll

    Whatever I choose, it's gonna be booby-trapped from basement to roof. I love traps. Easiest would probably be either underground (lots of walls and collapsible dirt on top) or a ship (push the buttons in the wrong order, woops, the reactor is now a time-bomb)

    Basic LUA tutorial

    Howdy hi ho, fellow architects of this fine world! Since scripting will be a big part of the game and not everyone grew up indulging themselves in various programming languages, I thought I'd link this little LUA tutorial here that I stumbled upon while improving my own LUA skills.

    Newest DevDiary

    Hope I'm the first one! This months DevDiary includes info on the (Pre-) Alpha, a view at the game menu, a glimpse at the inventory system, redesign of the cockpit widgets and several things about building and scripting!

    Newest DevDiary

    Also: the scripted bot that follows you! Possibly a way to create a living armor...

    Newest DevDiary

    I especially like the headlights. I wanna see some police drones hunting a thief or murderer in the forest, each equipped with a headlight...

    Wipes?

    Okay, newest DevDiary confirmed: We're gonna be able to keep our constructs in form of blueprints.

    Flats/Territory Sections

    Sure, but the issue is compartmentalizing of constructs. If you build a whole apartment block with one core, how would you assign single apartments?
  19. SimonVolcanov

    Wipes?

    I recall JC mentioning wipes after Alpha and Beta, as to not give backers an unfair advantage in the long run. Source might follow, if someone finds it. I'm too lazy to look.

    Flats/Territory Sections

    I have an idea for this: Zoning. Like in Cities: Skylines for example, you simply can assign a "color" (number, whatever identifier" to a group of voxels which would then get their own RDMS

    gathering materials

    Ye, Sapphire is just his founder level

    DU First City Proyect

    Yeah, orgs will most likely plan out their bases. Would be stupid not to. But since the area around the Arkship will end up pretty fractured...

    DU First City Proyect

    The city around the Arkship will very likely emerge naturally, when merchants, recruiters and offices set up. Maybe some factories too, but getting ressources back there would probably be harder in the future, since every newcomer pirate hangs around there...

    Anyone else taking time off work for Pre-Alpha?

    No, but I have actually spent days eating and drinking nothing but milk and sugar cubes...

    Anyone else taking time off work for Pre-Alpha?

    Now I'm offended and disgusted...
