Maxim Kammerer reacted to Aaron Cain in ELEMENT STACKING NOW PROHIBITED - NQ FEEDBACK PLEASE
What the hell is meant with element stacking?
placing windows side by side and they actually overlap at the edges as you are building a triangle?
placing 10 containers against eachother? placing 4 ailerons on top of each other? placing 2 landing gear beside each other? placing a break on a hover? placing an adjuster on an engine? placing an adjuster on a brake/window/cargo/etc?
We need clarification
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Elitez in Please Remove Schematics
Ive been here since beta day 1 and i have tons of free for all full loot experience from other games (ark, rust, eve, darkfall,etc). Even by default i am a pvper i was one of those that tried to do anything that i could (write on forums, write on discord, talk with few streamers) so we make NQ and JC (main dev in 2020) understand that we need safe zone to remain what it is now. Initial plan was that only Sanctuary and something around (dont recall exactly what his plans were (sept 2020 or so) but he wanted to remove the safe bubble what we all have now. He said on stream bubble will stay. I hope it stays too. Those beautiful cities must live
Knowing that in 1+ year we will get another system, that one can be without safe zone but DU has a hidden Second Life social agenda very well implemented in it and we all need a place to call it home or safe zone, no matter how agressive your gameplay is. I really want to think that DU is not about Hero to Zero experiences and it will never bring many traumatic experiences to those %players who dont want to engage in pvp.
Maxim Kammerer got a reaction from Captain Hills in Please Remove Schematics
Yes, it would not be bad in principle. But that also applies to schematics. The problem is how they are implemented. I hope for the best but I'm afraid NQ will find a way to make energy management just as bad as schematics.
Maxim Kammerer got a reaction from Captain Hills in Please Remove Schematics
The main problem with schematics is not the price but the way they are implemented. If you are happy with manually moving schematics in and out of industries everytime you switch to another product, than 35 million might be enough (I didn't check that). My factories are designed to make as many products as possible without moving stuff between containers. In order to make that working again I would need to buy much more schematics than I ever use at once. That makes no sense. A single schematics container for all industries within a construct would solve that problem. If you have N schematics for a specific receipt, than N factories could run it once without moving them around. And that is just one problem I have with this 'feature'. If players are asking to remove schematics than they are talking about schematics as currently implemented and not about hypothetical schematics without such design faults.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Sybily in Please for the love of god rework skills
just get rid of time based talent point accumulation all together. That was the Worst design decision NQ made. Passive talents are the stupidest thing you can think of. There needs to be some sort of active talent accumulation as well. And no, the achievements don't count. 120 talent points for an achievement is an insult. The AFK gameplay mechanics need to be fixed(i.e. talents and missions).
There's a reason starbase is winning.
DU is the game with the best game technology and the absolute worst game design. It's a shame. Hate to say it but you need to fire your game designers and get someone good.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Aaron Cain in PERMANENT REMOVE SCHEMATICS FROM THE GAME
Tip: either come back everyday to get the 150k quanta or dont bother to return, nothing will change atleast that is the expected outcome of the 0.23 massacre. the 150k everyday will make it possible to slowly buildup your schematics
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Deleted in XL cores when?
Not only that but it really uses up your org core limits.
TBH I would be happy with different shaped build cubes selectable on deployment:
1/4 height but twice as wide and long.
“Pizza box” suitable for landing pads and low, sprawling structures.
1/2 height and double length.
“shoebox”. Suitable for most large spacecraft or general buildings.
1/2 height and width but 4x as long.
“tube”. Suitable for roads, bridges, gantries and mega structure spines.
Also, for the love of all things holy, please give us the ability to deploy cores in build mode.
and add an “enforce planetary level” toggle box while you’re at it, I’m fed up of all our buildings being slanted because the initial structure is 3km away and the planet is curved.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Snipey in The new roadmap .. Discuss ..
They trashed any actual gameplay loops to give a reach around to the end game content and PVP orgs instead of addressing the core of the game like higher tier ore regeneration and the new player experience. Who cares about brutes bashing their faces against each other when market tools are trash you cant create missions as an org. No way to insure a package other than collateral making people pay 300mil for a 100k profit. This game is a joke when it comes to prioritizing the order of importance. Why is there no deep surface mining experience, caves generate below -6000m why cant we explore those and get resources. NQ needs to stop listening to the PVP orgs and make the game FUN.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to joaocordeiro in Social game or a socialist game?
You guys don't get it...
For ppl like the OP, the word socialism is not what a definition says.
It is an insult. It is 100% synonymous of the enemy, of hell, of everything that ppl should not be.
A certain group of countries created this hate against this word to justify wars and commercial deals.
Now that the Cold War is over, a certain group of political activists use that word to fulfill their agenda.
Their agenda is simple, it is to discriminate everything associated with the word. To make any idea related to the word "undebatable" because it is evil. And everyone that does not agree that the word is evil is also evil.
In summary, the end of constructive debate...
But back to this topic.
The op lives in this environment where "socialism" is evil.
And tried to associate some DU mechanic with "evil" to make it "undebatable"
I don't believe the OP knows what "socialism" is in any definition, and I don't think the OP actually thinks his complaint is about socialism.
He just used the word to have an "impact" tittle and some "support" from similar players.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Supermega in Social game or a socialist game?
What you describe here is capitalism, not socialism. what that American told you is incorrect, stop listening to Americans, and educate yourself on the topic by doing your own research, you can literally google this. but I'll try and put it as simply as I can.
CAPITALISM: is when a "capitalist" owns and controls the resources and means of production, an can decide what to do with those resources.
So in an org, the Legate/ Capitalist takes ownership of the "Members/ Workers" resources, and they alone have the power to decide what to do with those resources.
SOCIALISM: is when the "workers" own and control the resources and means of production. an can decide what to do with those resources.
if Orgs where socialist, there would be NO "Legate/ Capitalist" , because "Members/ Workers" would own and control the resources and means of production, and they would collectively decide what to do with those resources.
That's the basics... you can research and learn more on your on. which I highly recommend.
so·cial·ism /ˈsōSHəˌlizəm/ noun noun: socialism a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to sHuRuLuNi in Just about rage quit yesterday
Might be good, don't know.
But what I DO know is that I really don't like the voice of that woman ... she sounds like those clerks (in USA) who work at some store and always put an ARTIFICIAL SMILE and talk to you with a squeaky "sweet" voice but actually hate their job and are dead inside. Or like those hired female voiceover people for some Techno Channels on YouTube when you just FEEL that she absolutely has no idea about the subject matter and is just reading a script.
This one here also sounds as if she is smiling the whole time while explaining to us how to obliterate each other with capital ships and fighters, lol.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Deleted in Should all seats be unable to see the GUI while in third person?
I’m all for third person camera elements placed on the outside of the ship that relay information inside.
And As the elements are damaged, you lose 3rd person visibility externally.
for example guns /radars could still come with cameras which could be used in lieu of free 3rd person camera. You could choose any such camera equipped system to be your external vantage point from a list of ship elements.
Free 3rd person camera view should be for cinematic use only, recording fights and making trailers etc, it should lose all the cockpit/LUA access.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Deleted in People with 20 accounts can now makes hundreds of millions per day with missions
If they have 20 accounts, it means they bought 4 Alpha or Beta accounts to get the 5 extra beta access keys. That's at least $240 they paid towards funding a game that is likely to go titsup at any moment.
moreover, they have to log into each of those accounts at least twice to do the missions... that's anywhere up to 3 minutes per account to log out and back in... twice...
lets call it 3 minutes per relog... 40 times... that's 120 minutes of sheer boredom plus travel time. If they are willing to "play" that way then they will be the type of people that will tend to get rich anyway...
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Deleted in So, what do you think of the new colorful engines?
Why on earth would you paint a particular performance class of engine a particular and completely disparate colour?... makes little sense to me.
Quite literally sprinkling glitter on poo, but for some reason they don't let us choose which poo and what colour glitter we want to sprinkle.
If they were skins i'd be more inclined to have a positive opinion... as it is, this is just another minimum effort addition to the game.
Maxim Kammerer reacted to Shulace in Any progress since the dev blog dump?
Most of us called all this tone deafness out the moment they started mentioning what they were planning in 0.23. It was what, like a few weeks before the actual patch itself?
When they actually went ahead and delivered all the things that weren't wanted AND more in that patch I knew where this game was headed.
Some folks laughed and dismissed our voices back then, now we're all laughing at this trainwreck.
I still stand by my F2P or shutdown statement. I really can't see a viable comeback like this after all this time.
