  1. Official word in the beginning was that they were going to leave it alone. Has that changed? (Honestly hope it has, but just curious)
  2. Yeah, it can take awhile sometimes. If you don’t have it by the end of the day, contact support.
  3. Hey buddy, So during the testing period you will not have to buy gameplay time. However, after the release of the game there will be a subscription to continue playing. Every package comes with a number of DACs, these DACs are months of game time. Other players can buy and trade DACs within the game economy. Therefore, you will be able to buy DACs (and thus gametime) if you make enough in game money to buy a DAC from a player. STUs are used to make claims on moons. Moons are considered safe zones IIRC, so once you make the claim no one can contest it.
  4. DU doesn’t have 24/7 tech support, nor should they imho. It’s a small dev company, having such expectations is pretty crazy imho. Even the major AAA studios sometimes have crazy wait times when it comes to tech support. I’ve waited weeks for star citizen support before.
  5. Cloud and talent tree have to be my favorite. Pretty exciting Love the quick video on new features, easy to digest for those who are busy.
  6. If the question is whether you should wait or not, the answer is usually yes... you should wait Early development is just that, early development.
  7. If it has a 10 year old CPU, it's likely to have an older GPU as well. Besides, I think it could still power something like a 1050 TI or even a 1060 just fine.
  8. Could you tell us what the precise CPU is? Dual Universe requires AVX. I’m no help, but I’m sure that information would be useful for others. like is it an i5 6600k etc Maybe the motherboard and BIOS version would be useful as well... if it is a bios thing. However, I’m pretty sure it simply means your CPU does not support AVX Edit: Looking at this, it seems it is an i7 920 or a Xeon processor: https://www.jackcobben.nl/2012/03/27/2013/ That is one old CPU... sorry to say it buddy, but I don't think it supports AVX
  9. They’ve already said the resources on Alioth are pretty basic IIRC. I wouldn’t expect much in regards to advanced weaponry. Maybe we will be able scrape together the equivalent of space muskets lol
  10. I really like how you put this. Got me to thinking it would be pretty strange if a PvP player started advocating that they don't want to partake in PvE ? "0/10 Why am I not 100% safe from PvE at all times? Would NOT recommend this game!" I think DU will be a nice blend of PvP and PvE. I do think it would be good for NQ to state their intentions for PvP (Although, I feel like they already have)... but anywho, clarifications are always nice.
  11. Yeah, I think many players will keep marketplaces open to all. It's unfortunate how profitable it is to provide "griefers" with supplies. It would take a huge collaboration among the entire community to completely axe someone's supply chain. If you feel slighted, you can keep them off your marketplaces... but John Shmoe over there has a shop open to all. Heck, he might even have a premium on his wares since he knows everyone else is blocking people from trading.
  12. That's an interesting point. People often overlook the fact that those griefers have the same benefits as those who do not grief ? A node with immunity could open up a LOT of opportunities for a griefer. That's for sure. In the end, I agree with blaze. The universe is going to be huge. Depending on how scanners work and if you have a speedy enough ship, you can always stay out of reach of a pesky intruder
  13. @blazemonger Few things that seem a bit wonky about your post: 1.) I copied the entirety of your first paragraph. And as such the entirety of that paragraph was taken into account. 2.) An opinion does not mean it is immune to attack. You said PvP would likely be simply to settle disputes, I brought up clear indications that that won't be the case. There's an idiom about wishes and dreams... wish I could remember it ? 2.) "Now that we're nitpicking anyway, your quote is not on the front page, it is part of a text which refers to a component of the game a few pages down. But yes, that really is not all that relevant so let's leave it where it is.." So, who gets to decide what's considered the front page of the landing page for DU? Is it the funding banner? Oh, maybe it's the DU logo. No no no, it's the animation. Also, who gets to decide official word about DU that is irrelevant? Hmmm. If it truly is irrelevant, I think NQ would take it down
