    Begogian got a reaction from Lethys in Transported Goods Safety   
    Exactly. Something like this can't be a thing and as the game progresses, I think trustworthy and un-trustworthy orgs will emerge who all claim to be able to safely transport your cargo from A to B. With this in mind, I believe there should be no insurance, no prepaying, and no support. You hire FedEx or UPS (American shipping companies) trusting them to deliver your package safely and properly. They have been around for so long that everyone knows you won't run into trouble with them and they are safe. This will transfer in game because it is up to the transporter to use resources to protect his/her vessels.
     
    If it costs you 100 Quanta to protect your ship and make it a safe transport, then charge 150 Quanta so you make money. Thats how it should be, the risk should be with the transporter because you are hiring them to do your job, if they fail, they don't get money for it.

    Begogian got a reaction from KurockNotabi in Terrain mining and storage.   
    The dev diary examples are infinite so it shows as 999,999 but in-game it won't be anywhere near that. It will probably store in stacks with maximums for each stack, and I think they are factoring in weight too so you can't hold 1 million dirt and walk as fast as everyone else. For creating the "cubes" it will be voxels that really don't seem to have a defined size yet. We have asked about it, km, mm, m, but nothing too concrete yet. Resources will be used for building parts for ships and buildings, not decorating.

    Don't worry, the DU Radio team is still working on this and we can't wait until we go live. We have a couple more pieces to fix up and polish the edges and we will be done. Unfortunately, until the game releases their won't be much DU podcasts talking about in-game topics but we will release it for music, small podcasts, and possibly new interviews with NQ.

    Good luck with getting a bunch of online strangers to agree to safe zones. The only safe zones not defined by NQ will be very large market places and resources the community as a whole define as very valuable. When you have a very valuable station or building or service, then everyone loses out if it gets attacked which will keep it mutually safe.

    Please, do the kind of show that's like "The World in 60 seconds" kind of thing, where you recap the latest thing I blew up, how many people turned into columns of salt and Cybrex's alt-count.

    You would have to protect your stargates because you could definitely camp stargates and attack ships as they pass through. The big thing will probably be that stargates are expensive and very hard to build so only big orgs will own them for the most part. With big orgs owning the stargates, they will be defended and secured fairly well if the org has the man power. You can also send fighters through first to secure the other side, then send your transport ships or cargo ships through after.

    You will be able to pay other players so if they went to the market or bought the contract, then yes, you could then pay that player for that item or if you trust them enough, give them the money, they will buy the item and then give it to you.

    Begogian got a reaction from Lord_Void in Ship Fuel   
    Welcome to the Forums!
     
    They have talked about fuel before and yes there will be fuel in the game. Each engine type will require specific types of fuel.
     
     
    "
    ...different engines will need different fuel types. So this is one example. You will have to factor the weight of the fuel tank when designing the ship and make trade-offs between autonomy and speed for example.

     
    If you want, check out this video where they talk about building ships and how they will work. JC talks about gas tanks and fuel cells.
