    Anasasi reacted to NQ-Naerais in Website & Program Updates   
    Dear Noveans,
     
    When we set out to launch our beta this summer, we also envisioned a series of major changes and improvements outside of the game. A major one was the complete redesign of the game’s website, as well as the migration to a brand new tech stack for the site’s front and back ends. We were also planning to launch several programs, such as a Content Creator program and a Recruit-a-Friend program, which relied on a new, versatile code system. That code system is also being used to grant our backers the beta invitations which are part of their Kickstarter or Alpha packs.
     
    Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned, as you’ve been witnessing over the past few days (2020 strikes again...). We had to revert part of our tech migration, and postpone the move to a new authentication platform, among other things in our backend. So for the past few weeks we have been struggling to try and reconcile the new site and the code system with our legacy backend. This task has honestly been way more difficult than we had imagined. 
     
    We already missed the boat when it came down to allowing you to invite your friends a week earlier, and we’ve come to announce more delays, sadly. As we approach the launch of the beta, we have to be realistic about what we’ll be able to deliver, as we had to make tough choices:

    We will launch the new Dual Universe website tomorrow; it will have the most essential content and features, with some visual and quality of life improvements missing. We’ll add more content after beta.
     
    The Content Creator program will be ready, using the above code system (see potential limitation below). You should be able to get the invitations included in your beta packs on day 1, though the system may not be as easy to use as we wanted. Making sure you have these codes ready is one of our top priorities (see potential limitations below). You should be able to go to the website and upload images for publishing in Dual Universe, which will go through an internal review process to ensure that they follow the game’s Code of Conduct.  
    The Recruit-a-Friend program didn’t make the cut… and that sucks. We worked hard on it and we were really excited about it. The in-game content is ready, but the entitlement system isn’t. Unfortunately, we couldn’t work on all the entitlements in the limited time that we had these past few weeks.

    There is a potential limitation with the code system, for both content creators and beta keys: in the next few days the codes may not be redeemable with existing accounts - only with new ones (like for the load test). We are trying to lift that limitation as soon as possible, as we know it’s not ideal. 
     
    So what’s next? All these new systems, the new website, and these new programs will be constantly improved in the days and weeks to come. Our priority will be to lift the code limitation and to launch the Recruit-a-Friend program as soon as possible. We don’t want to give you a date that we may not be able to hold, but know that we are doing everything we can to make it as early as possible. 
     
    Finally let’s tackle the question of “Why did we announce the Recruit-a-Friend program if it wasn’t going to be ready?” Well, that’s the point; we really thought it was going to be ready, just as when we announced the ability to invite your friends a week prior to beta. It’s disappointing, for you and for us. But we believe these programs are worth it, so we want to make them right.
     
    We hope you’ll bear with us, and that you’ll be able to enjoy the Dual Universe beta in the meantime.
     
    Sincerely,
    The Novaquark Team
     
    *Note: we unfortunately won’t be able to retrofit any recruitment that you may do between now and the official launch of the program. Recruitment will only count from the day of the launch of the program, when we can track who’s recruiting who properly.

    Crack the core, implode the planet? 

    I really hope there is some realism that puts you under either more and more intense pressure or heat to avoid having people digging straight through without consequence. A molten core would surely stop people in their path.

    Sure, but maybe they spent money they have just now realized they actually need to survive, or, pay for something else that is more vital. 
    Or they backed early on, and have just seen the game go a direction they do not appreciate. 
    It's not my place to assume, but if I were too it would be one of the above.

    There are so many new members of organizations! Even limiting the map to organizations that have at least 6 members, this map has 4370 nodes.
    in order to continue creating maps as they grow unwieldy, I have changed the display parameters a bit.

    Hello there guys!
    I figured it may be better to post later in the week as opposed to April 1st (you know, just so I don't ruin peoples day).

    Anyway, it has been a very, very long time since I had updated the charts and I thought I better update them to see what has really changed. 
    I can see now that a lot has changed, groups have either collapsed or split up, changed names or gained popularity through other means.

    All top ten organizations now sit above one hundred members and Terran Republic is closing in on the thousand member mark, good work guys.
    It is good to see the staple names still hovering in the top ten though.

    Anyway, just an addition, the new groups, I have started at '0' members as of last update as they had no previous numbers.

    Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the update guys!

    A Firm Foundation
    Empires. Armies. Nations. The ambition of the Novean population leads them to lofty goals. But from the moment they're awakened from cryosleep, those goals will be as distant as the stars they've just traversed.
     
    Volant Transtellar approaches this new world with the humility of our situation in mind. As a company, and as a wider populace. Our immediate goal is to provide the foundations of Novean society. Resources, infrastructure, training. Before mighty vessels can ply the spacelanes, trucks and buses must ply the roads. Simple aircraft must deliver citizens to their duties. A strong economy must begin at the bottom before it can rise.
     
    A Vanguard to Dreams
    VTI needs you. It needs your drive, your creativity, and your spirit as a builder. Before the lofty dreams of a new world can grow the simple work of sowing its fields must be done. VTI has no aim to be at the forefront of armies, or atop the halls of power. VTI, and you with us, will be the pavement on every street, the wings of every flight, the strength of every tool and the comfort of every home.
     
    Where other organizations strive always to be at the top, VTI strives always to be at the bottom. The underpinning that holds aloft the dreams of our peers.
     
    Angled Ever Upward
    If you are an individual with a need to build, and a passion to hold aloft your fellows, then Volant needs you. Whatever experience you bring will be welcomed with open arms. If you bring nothing with you but the spark of a creator, Volant is here to give you the tools and understanding you need to succeed.
     
    If you're the leader of an extant Organization, Volant can use you as well. We are always on the lookout for new leaders and new potential. Your Org could be welcome into ours, and retain much of your autonomy and flexibility as we strive towards our common goal. We're also always on the lookout for subsidiaries to aid our endeavors.
     
    Volant Transtellar.
    Rise with us, wings outspread.
    And lift the world behind.

    And now only count unique members Quite a few players are a member of several of these orgs which skews the numbers quite a bit.
     
    I can see this becoming an issue over time as well once these orgs start to move, let alone the fact that a number of them will simply disappear once the game actually starts and something called effort will be required to maintain an org's structure and health. Once the big and well structured organisations currently on the sideline (waiting for the game to get going) come in, this picture will shift dramatically anyway.

    Though, mountains are good for building bunkers and tunnel networks, 
    however, if you were to have a combination where the entrances to said network would be concealed by the forest, it would be good.

    Hey there folks!
    Hope you're all having a wonderful day waiting for the Alpha Tests to start. 

    This week has been a long and news filled one, whilst I don't track it, several larger organizations have dropped their association with Cinderfall Syndicate, as well as this the Cinderfalls numbers have plummeted, the have lost 87 members between last Saturday and this Saturday. Whether this is a planned purge, move or people are going with their external organizations, this is yet to be seen or announced. A few key members of Cinderfall also dropped from the organization. This being said, the total top ten members have dropped by 54, with the unique count also dropping by 22. 

    It seems Terran Union, Band of Outlaws and GLSU have all gained small member amounts from this large event (or other more natural recruitment drives).

    So, heres todays charts! Yes, now multiple! 

    I added a few things, A total members over time graph, a total gain per day for the top ten and then an organization member number contribution! 

    I also changed a few colours. 
    Empire is now a light-ish blue.
    The Aether is now a light red/pink. 

    These colours are chosen based on the fact that they need to be different from others, not related to their official colours. 

    Terran Union has solidified a lead as the number one org (in terms of numbers) on the community site over night.

    Well guys, 
    I would like to announce that this weekend, the charts will be back! 

    They will instead, be weekly charts allowing me to get a little more info squeezed in!

    It also allows me to do other things and not stress me out, as well as let me further expand upon these data sets, whether it be deeper and more analytical or wider and more encompassing. 

    Thanks all, for the support and questions about when and whether it would be coming back. 

    **Edit: I would also like to mention, that I will be uploading all of the previous chart images to a shareable folder - for now, so the community may go back through them.
