  1. When you start running out of personal core limit, you could train org core talents and found a personal organization to put your constructs under. It costs and takes time, but you can get lot of cores that are basically your.
  2. Not sure if taking part in last contest makes me a regular writer, but I already brainstormed ideas for novawrimo text, but ran short on writing time with surprise gig work, being late on a fanfiction that I write and choosing to take part in another short story contest which I am still writing for. Thinking of ideas for novawrimo turned out to give me the idea for that text though so thanks NQ I guess. Even if DL was extended though, that other contest simply has much more potential benefit for me than fanfic contest of a game company which participants can be counted with one hand fingers,
  3. Post in rules and announcements announcing the contest linked here saying: "ask your questions (if you have any) in the same topic !" Also previous novawrimo had discussion in the thread.

  5. I'm bit worried what new EU copyright directives are going to do. To my understanding they cause a platform to be legally responsible for copyrighted material being posted on them, so if someone builds and X-wing in DU would that be copyrighted material that could be targeted and how much risk would DU face with thousands of people building things. That is the stupidity and major reason the laws are resisted. Most of the attention is about social media, but wouldn't the sharing of such designs in MMO count too just as much. Also George Lucas sold star wars so it would be Lucasfilm/
  6. Isn't it possible to alter voxels outside cores' areas. I at least remember seeing videos of DU where they just plop down and remove voxels without a core in sight (removing is kind of important for mining). Has that changed or is there some other reason people couldn't use that to make roads or bridges?
  7. Could create really cool underground cities/bases. On related note, what do people think about an idea of a hollow earth planet? Either have like 50%voxel and 50% empty space with one massive cave under the surface layer or even twist physics a bit to have gravity turn outwards and walk in the inner surface with some light source in the middle. Finding one could also be tied to some kind of mystery/story of the world that would eventually give an explanation for its existence.
  8. So now this community has gone from Death star (which devs called technically possible but unlikely) to a dyson sphere. NQ you are going to need more powerful servers. Oh and a Dyson swarm is more likely than fixed sphere, at least in the real world it would be.

    Armour ideas

    Looks like closest thing to stormtrooper in the real world.
  10. @NQ-Nomad Two questions if you won't mind: 1. Should the prize show somewhere in profile or elsewhere or do I just get email or other contact about the matter when the rewards are actually relevant (at the time of alpha 2 as I've understood). 2. To confirm, the prize has the content they had in original kickstarter packs? https://ksr-ugc.imgix.net/assets/013/630/702/40b5f8aebb79d1946b24127cf5853155_original.jpg?w=680&fit=max&v=1473233986&auto=format&q=92&s=60de617c87413ffd127ad0f96639f7ec With these too? https://www.dualthegame.com/en/news/2
  11. If people want to play with small organizations they join/found organizations that stay small. To say that organization size for example should be limited because some want to play with smaller group makes no sense.
  12. Considering one major reason for no collision damage (as far a I remember) was to reduce stress on servers which would have to do calculations for collision damage, it shouldn't really make a difference what you are ramming into.
  13. I haven't played much MMOs but from everything I've heard whenever developers think they have something like that it is basically a "hold my beer" moment for the player base. I'm just wondering if that will happen with the death star in DU since NQ has stated it is technically possible but unlikely because of the resources and work we'd need. No collision damage should also be more forgiving for practicing pilots/drivers so all the construction work wont go to waste too easily in some accident.
  14. How about this symbol then, placed on the hull at the closest point to main reactor or equivalent. (not mine, found on google)
  15. To be at all efficient there would need to be a greater power to enforce it / punish those who shoot at neutral ship or pretend to be neutral ship. Big organization's might agree on such rules in some areas, maybe.
  16. I'm bit confused. Are you talking about leaving an organization and letting other people keep going with it, or do you just want to throw everyone out and destroy the organization?
  17. Very large fixed spinal weapons (Like Halo Mac guns) would be nice though. I hope such fit together with lock and shoot model. Could require keeping ship directed in certain direction with small deviance and then have the lock and fire model.
  18. Concerning the edit rights part of the discussion, I agree that the core is the key, but besides searching for hidden core the alternative ought to be to cut off pieces of wreck with some weapon/tool so the cut off part would become neutral and salvageable when it loses connection to the core. Capturing ships, which would be greater reward, would require finding the core and getting rid of it/ hacking it, but Hacking should only be possible if player really gets to the core. In terms of practicalities of salvaging wrecks it is resource collection like mining, so I wouldn't expect N
  19. Throwing people out of the airlock, so wasteful. You should watch this PSA (from about 0:20 onward)
  20. I think the problem and reason why combat is supposed to be lock and shoot was because of the server tech and load, like things further away updating less often. Imagine having a space battle with several capital ships and maybe dozens or hundreds of fighters or trying to hit a moving ship that shows to be where it was even just a second ago. As for digfighting, I think that might become a thing but be more about hunting underground bunkers than spaceships.
  21. I suspect he intended to say "will DU work" but said "DU will work" because of limited English skills
  22. Also 20 000$ medical expenses. That is your real problem.
  23. In that case I call any law that makes that possible idiotic.
  24. Sounds very 90s or early 2000s or just lack of competition on your area. I barely remember the time when home internet was charged by use and I don't think I've ever had data limit at home. Then again anytime I hear something about USA internet service providers it is something bad. A Finnish ISP actually has had very successful advertising campaigns with "Elisa price missionaries" preaching cheap prices in USA Some of them are quite fun. See for yourself. skip this to 30 or 40s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6cnpbvAJl4&index=60&list=PLoYgvGiwgZk4
