    MinerMax555 reacted to NQ-Nyzaltar in Player Recruitment & Advertisement: dos and don'ts   
    I) About Dual Universe (and/or a DU Organization) Advertisement
     
    (a) It's fine to advertise the game and/or your DU Organization(s) to players you already know or with whom you have already played with in other games without harassing them. If they aren't interested, do not insist.
     
    (b) It's absolutely not acceptable to enter other gaming communities with the only intent being to randomly advertise Dual Universe or your DU Organization to players you don't know. Being polite isn't enough. Participating in said group with the intention to legitimize your advertisement is not enough either. You won't fool many people with this method. While one player may be convinced to join your Organization, it will most likely antagonize significantly more players, making them hostile toward you and Dual Universe due to these cheap and inappropriate practices. 
     
    If you don't understand why this is wrong, just imagine players coming from 10 different game communities and invading your Discord, subReddit, or Steam group, falsely pretending to be interested in the game you’re playing while instead being there to make advertisements for the game he plays in your channels. Any person would quickly be tired of this behavior and ban them all, as well as form a negative image of the game that has been advertised. Please don’t do this.  Not only is this rude, this can be considered harassment in addition to brand damage, which could result in a ban from Dual Universe for such behavior.
     
    (c) While it didn’t seem clear for everyone so far (despite being in our EULA and in our forum chart here), here is a strong reminder: impersonating Novaquark staff is a serious offense. This will result in a permanent ban without further notice or discussion. There is also no limitation period for this offense (meaning: if we got proof of Novaquark staff impersonation several months or even years later, the sanction will still be applied).
     
    (d) While this has been some kind of grey area until now, there won’t be sanctions applied to involved Organizations for the past actions. However, from now on, Organizations that will benefit from the aforementioned bad practices could see their member list reset at Novaquark’s sole discretion. We wish to make it clear that there is nothing to gain from such advertisement and recruitment practices as well as inform other gaming communities that the Novaquark staff will not tolerate these methods of advertisement and recruitment.

    II) About Gifting Practices as a Recruitment Incentive
     
    Novaquark has not enforced any strict rules regarding gifting practices so you are free to gift DACs or Supporter Packs as you see fit. However, we don’t encourage use of this freedom as a recruitment incentive unless you are perfectly fine with the definition of "gifting" (giving something for free to someone else without expecting anything in return for this gift). 
     
    Before gifting a DAC or a Supporter Pack, you should carefully consider that a player could leave your Organization or simply never join it at all. In this situation, this will be your responsibility and we will not refund nor reverse the gift you made to another player. The Novaquark team will not step in to oblige the receiver to fulfill his part of the bargain either (if there was any).
     
    So choose and gift wisely.
     
    If you have any further questions on the topic, please let us know.
     
    Best Regards,
    The Community team.

    MinerMax555 reacted to Kurock in DICE Den: Pitch an in-game game idea. Win prizes.   
    Voting is closed and the winning entry is Flipmaze by Ben Fargo
     
    The voting thread and winning announcement can be found here: 
     
    The DU Community in-game game idea pitch competition. Welcome to the DICE Den.
     
    Note: Please keep discussions about a specific ideas in a separate thread, this thread is for entrants. (Putting this first so that it is hopefully read)
     
    What is it? A DU community competition, here on the forums, where anyone can suggest an in-game game and then the community will vote for their favourite.
     

    (Scribbles are welcome)
     
    Rules:
    The game must take place in playing field of at most 110x75 meters with a height of 50 meters inside Dual Universe (give or take a few meters) and should cater for spectators. A single post may be made per person detailing their idea. Keep it under a few paragraphs, enough to get the idea across. Pictures (even mspaint drawings) may be beneficial, but keep them few. While this is more a sales pitch than a complete design, if you feel inspired, just DU it. Entrants are free to make assumptions about DU combat and how elements work in DU, if relevant to their game. Working in groups is allowed but only a single person can enter the group's work here and win the prize. The competition is open to all that can post on these forums.  
    Dates: Competition entries start on 1 February 2018 with last day for entries on 22 February 2018. Voting then starts on 23 February 2018 an will continue until 10 March 2018.
     
    Prize: The winning suggestion wins a game key of their choice and DICE (https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/dice) will implement a prototype of the game and potentially add it to the roster of DICE games. The game keys can be chosen from: The Long Dark, Quantum Break, Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, and Tomb Raider.
     
    TLDR: Yo wazzup! I heard you like games so I want to put games in your games so make a game then I award you with a game in a game as well as a game that is not in the game. Kapish?
     
    This competition is sponsored by Soarnir. Also feel free to drop by the unofficial DU discord (http://dualuniverse.chat/) and say hi.

    Hello fellow Noveans, I just wanted to write a short post to thank the PR deptartment at Novaquark. While I do not wish to go into details, I had to contact Novaquark recently in relation to my account. Their response was swift, polite, understanding and highly satisfactory.

    A special thank you to Gary, but to all at Novaquark, for assisting in my situation.

    Good customer service in gaming is rare nowadays, sadly, so something like this really makes a difference. I am honoured to say that I got the Gold Pledge, worth every penny.

    Thanks again!

    MinerMax555 got a reaction from Rafiki in Eisengrind Info Update #2 New Berlin   
    Ich möchte hier anmerken dass die Safezone, die, man erlaube mir den Begriff, "demilitarisierte Zone", im Vergleich zur massiven Größe von Alioth nur recht klein ist.


    Ich halte Neu-Berlin als einen der ersten ernst zu nehmenden Stadtpläne von DU, in denen nicht mehr oder weniger alles von einer zentralisierten Regierung genau definiert wird. Auch erscheint mir die Struktur sinnvoll.

    Mir kommen nur zwei Fragen auf:
    -Wo sollen die öffentlichen Gebäude und Verwaltungszentren stehen
    -Wo kommt der Flughafen hin? Spaß beiseite, ich bin mir sehr sicher, dass es für größere Frachter oder Spaceliner einen sicheren Landeplatz geben werden muss.

    Außerdem wäre ich mit meiner Firma, Vortrex Mining and Science bereit, den Bau von Neu-Berlin aktiv sowohl mit Material als auch mit Arbeitskraft zu unterstützen und für Tiefpreise den Bau des zweiten Berliner Spaceports voranzutreiben. Immerhin könnten wir es immerhin diesmal in 2 1/2 Jahren schaffen

    MinerMax555 reacted to yamamushi in DUFM - Dual Universe Radio Online - Looking for Content Submissions and Recruiting Help   
    After a bit of a hiatus for -reasons- I am pressing forward with continuing the development of a Dual Universe specific online radio station. 
     
    This is being done under the banner of the in-game organization, "Alioth Broadcasting Corporation"
     
    I am currently working with one other person making this a reality, and we currently have a radio stream running for demo purposes that has the following capabilities:
     
    24/7 Broadcasting AutoDJ'd playlists  Scheduled DJ's (where DJ's can login during their assigned timeslots for live broadcasting) Real-time Album Art Retrieval  
    The general things one would expect from an online radio stream.
     
    My wife, who is super awesome, is currently working on a website for people who want to listen live on the web as well. This should be ready within a few days, but ongoing modifications will be made to it to add features like album artwork refreshing in real-time and an interactive schedule for shows. I also plan on eventually adding archived shows automatically, though that may not be ready for some time. 
     
     
    All of that being said, the station is not ready for mass consumption, as we have several things we want to get in place before we give it out to the world. Which brings me to the purpose of this post.
     
    We are currently looking for people who would like to contribute, more specifically the following: 
     
    #1 priority at the moment for me is finding an artist who would like to help make logos (for the website, as well as the mobile apps) We are taking submissions of all types of content, and anyone who has music/shows/podcasts/commercials/whatever is welcome to submit content that will be broadcast on the station. This includes recruitment advertisements from ANY organizations (must be safe for work).  We are taking applications for people who would be interested in dj'ing live on the station, this is not limited to music but also anyone who might want to run a talk show or anything along those lines. Again, any organizations are welcome to take part in this. If you want an hour-long show talking about your org every week, you are more than welcome to do so.   
     
    I am currently working on an iOS application (DUFM) that will make its way into the App store where you can listen to the station live on your iOS devices. In conjunction with this work, an Android application is also being developed. When both applications are ready for distribution, I will work on getting them into their respective app stores for downloading. They will remain 100% free forever. I estimate they should be ready for distribution before the end of the month, perhaps sooner if we can get the artwork squared away. Honestly, the only thing holding them back at the moment is artwork that needs to be created or modified. 
     
     
    All of this is being done for the community for free, I will not charge for publishing content, nor will I charge anyone to listen to the station ever. I won't accept donations for this either. The purpose of this isn't to make money, it's to bring audio content to the community. I would like for this to be a community-driven thing, hence anyone being allowed to submit content for broadcasting. I will not charge money (real or in-game) for ads being published on the station either. I'm not here to make a quick buck off people in any form. 
     
    If you're interested in submitting content, have questions, or are wanting to help out in any way, please contact me on discord @ http://discord.me/dualuniverse . I most likely will not be responding to replies on this thread.
     
    Alternatively, applications for a spot on the schedule (talk show/dj) can be filled out here: https://goo.gl/forms/H3GIX9sJQH3f6r7n1

    MinerMax555 reacted to NanoDot in My biggest worry about this game   
    This is a fundamental and common error amongst MMO players.
     
    PVP is NOT "griefing" !
     
    PVP in any area of a game that allows it is playing the game as intended.
     
    An example of "griefing" is when a player goes AFK in a doorway of a building in a non-PVP area, and exploits collision-detection mechanisms to inconvenience other players.
     
    A slightly more fuzzy example is when someone breaks into your base and just deletes all of your items, instead of carrying them away (i.e. stealing them). That would exploiting the ability to make things "vanish from the game world" with the simple click of a button, rather than via weapons damage or physical relocation (i.e. theft).

    Hi everyone,
     
    Here is a (small) overdue update about the Lore:
     
    Lore Update (2 Oct. 2017):
     
    UMF (United Mankind Federation) becomes UEF (United Earth Federation).  From a Lore point of view, the testing phases including Alpha and Beta stages are considered in the Lore as virtual simulation run by Aphelia while the Alpha Team members are asleep (note: Pre-Alpha stage is not considered as part of the Lore) The in-game money will the “Quanta” (one Quanta, several Quantas). “Novean” is the term to name a passenger of the Arkship “Novark”.  
    P.S: regarding potential inconsistency between Nanopack rarity and the way a Player Character is resurrected, it's possible we will go with the solution "By naked, we mean, everything else than what you had before you leaving the Arkship". However, this is still in discussion. We'll keep you informed about the final decision
     
    Best Regards,
    Nyzaltar.
