    Hades got a reaction from spaceforger in WAIT...MONTHLY GAME TIME?   
    Final Fantasy XIV
    Mortal Online
     
    There are many games out there that have a "free" version that is severely gimped, and then a members/premium version with full content.  Mortal Online is just one example of that.  I believe DU may be going down that route as well, IIRC... 
     
    Subscriptions still work, and I imagine that's why most of us are here ^^
     
    Tired of F2P junkware.

    No.  Just stop.  Please.
     
    NQ has spoken for player freedom.  I back that choice.
     
    In the "high sec" in DU, it will be impossible to grief... since combat will be impossible.  I imagine damage to constructs will not be possible within the safezones.  I doubt collisions will be possible even outside of the safezones, as I believe NQ stated collisions may be too resource intensive to implement.
     
    Also, NQ literally stated that they will open up new areas for players.

    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.

    Hades reacted to Lindwedler in Message 'CPU does not support AVX instruction set'   
    I think the processor is to oldfashioned. It´s a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950  @ 3.07GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.1GHz. It´s fast enought with a good graphic card for most of the games, but - i don´t know it before - doesn´t support AVX command-set. unfortunately, it´s not possible to use the motherboard and processor socket for a newer processor. So what i know now, only way should be a new motherboard, processor, RAM and so on. Or may be cheaper, a new PC with processor which supports AVX. The Support of Novaquark wrote me also. May be there is another solution i don`t know yet.

    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:

    That is one old CPU... sorry to say it buddy, but I don't think it supports AVX

    Obviously there are multiple main drivers for the game, PvP isn't less than building and building isn't less than PvP.  Pretty strange that some people haven't picked up on that yet. 
     
    PvP won't just be to "settle disputes if all else fails".  The whole reason there are safezones is because that isn't the case lol
     
    Also from the front page:
    "get ready to face players fighting for supremacy, resource control or geostrategic advantage. Space pirates raid lonely travelers, corporations steal from each other, warlords rain destruction and cities need the costly protection of dome-tech…"

    Hades got a reaction from Pantera in Resurrection nodes/safe zone?   
    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.

    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

    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

    Hades reacted to Dhara in What is the ruling on Ships of other IP holders (disney, GW, etc)   
    I think the only implications come from whether or not the creator is making money off of someone else's IP.  So while it might be OK for us to make them, I doubt we could sell them for actual money or that NQ would be able to use them in any promotional materials for the game.  Otherwise, I don't think the law can stop people from making stuff like that just for fun.  If so then Twitter would have been shut down a long time ago.

    Hades got a reaction from ProphetZarquon in Alpha Roadmap AMA Questions   
    I've always enjoyed gameplay over graphical capabilities, I think some games get caught up in developing the next brightest and shiniest technology while leaving the gameplay for later dates.  Hopefully NQ won't fall down that path, and it's clear they don't intend to.  Although, I have no idea what it would take to implement the new ray technology... but if it's a considerable endeavor, I'd say they should pass it by.

    The mindset of the playerbase worries me too.  It seems to me like they want NQ to do stuff for them, when NQ has been pretty upfront from the very beginning that this is a player driven game.  Bunch of mindless ganking going on?  Hire mercs or create an organization that patrols these ganking hot zones and take care of it.
     
    I like the fact that you highlighted safezones and the fact that they don’t plan on hindering PvP outside of safezones.  That’s precisely how it should be.

    Seems like words to me, not a solution.  What would that entail?  Making ships ridiculously hard to take out?  Great... now major battles will go on infinitely.  Building is much cheaper than destruction?  Yeah that’s not going to happen 
     
    I honestly don’t think it will be much of an issue.  The starting planet is huge... it will be hard to gank all the newbies who fly off of the planet. 
     
    And once again, I tell you... the solution is by player directive as it should be.  Let’s cry wolf when there’s an actual wolf... you have no idea what player dynamics will enter the game.  Let’s see how the alpha plays out.

    If NQ follows current rules (currently define for pre-alpha), you won't be able to share videos recorded before the lift of the NDA.
    Remember that the main NDA objective is to make sure that public videos will show current gameplay.
     
    Nothing prevent you from doing so as long as you send the video securely (like, on the support website).
    I bet NQ will even be happy about it if the video has good quality. Just remember to not flood them.

    Open combat was always going to be a thing, and what you think is a main pillar for the game has no standing.
     
    "Safe Zones will protect you, and avoid Dual Universe to become a free for all PvP game. However, PvP will be possible when you step out of the Safe Zone. Players will be able to fight each other, balancing their equipment and energy between shield and armor, with dedicated weapon type with different types of damage. We will provide a “lock & fire” mechanism to combat, to facilitate very large battles that are made possible in-game by our Continuous Single-Shard Cluster. Players can further specialize into certain weapons through skills and improve their combat prowess with better equipment."
     
    Combat had as much screen time in the original campaign as any other "main pillar" of the game.  And the comments by NQ stated that the plan was for CvC no matter what, even if the stretch goal wasn't met.  It just probably wouldn't make it to the initial release.  You don't need CvC for territory control, but it sure is nice.
     
    The rest of your comment I agree with.  Combat will be major, and one of the largest driving forces in the game.  It needs to be done right, with deep thought.  Combat is one of the few components that literally touches every aspect of the game in some manner.  You don't have to partake in combat to be influenced drastically by combat.
