    Matches42 reacted to HardBOSS13 in DEVBLOG: TERRITORY UPKEEP - Discussion Thread   
    I was really surprised to see this update and I was really disappointed!  I spent days on scans and finding ok-ish tiles with more or less ore max 1.8KT and I am not a hardcore player.  Casually comming into the game knowing that I have set myself with a little piece of pie  for later.  I was mining and enjoying gameplay. Now NQ disregarded all that and throw away all countless efforts of me and everyone who was all about finding nodes and mining them.That action is not for beta games, I would say it's acceptable maybe in alpha stage of a game.
    What's next buying tiles on asteroids? Fuel tax?  Maybe meteorites falling down on our tiles destroying MU for mining too much?
     
    Never the less, on the other hand I was truly excited to see this update. I was thinking that now I don't even have to look for ore, just set up MU and enjoy free income do whatever, maybe even dare to go to PvP and see outside safe zone. At the moment I have casually played DU for a year and I have not been to every planet outside of safe zone yet. All the time I am in the safezone. I could not afford to go that far and loose a descent ship. And mostly upgrading and rebuilding experimental space vehicles for myself.
     
    Calibrating MU that is super boring and very annoying to go and harvest ore after, believe me I have done alot of harvesting before I figured out how to find it in the ground ). The profit margins no where near as they used to. 
     
    Since the update the only things I have been doing is trying to figure y the way to make money to pay for 7 tiles.  I thought it will be super profitable. But it is't more profitable, it is more hussle than ever befor. I have to keep up on my MU almost every day and keep an eye on my territory upkeep. And it feels like a second job. Now prices of ore fall down almost as a year ago. This update would work if t1 price would be firm at around 80's and now it's going rapidly towards low 20's. 
     
    I am not playing DU because I need second job and whole alot of stress. I have plenty of it in real life. I play DU because I love space the freedom to go where I want to go, build what I want to build. Now I feel obligated to play this game every day so I could at least keep what I have gotten. Probably will wrap it up and move to Sanctuary Moon yeah so much fun!
     
    So sad I prepaid yearly subscription.....
    And for the whole year before I was paying every month, even though I wasn't playing every month. I have done it because I liked the game and wanted to support it. I really hope you guys at NQ will give your heads a shake.
    At least provided some weekly missions so I can pay for my bloody tiles if I don't play DU ever day.
     
    Also may be instead of giving 150k a day, make one tile on any planet duty free........

    So you plan to add to the thing you hate..... which is probably how most of that crap got there in the first place.  Making it worse in an effort to make it better.... do you work for the Government?

    "Your request (48965) has been received" and I'm assuming that's my ticket number.  TIL screenshots fail to capture my mouse pointer, so my shots of the map placing my marker in the wrong locations just looks like my map..... with a marker.  Wildly unimpressive, but I assure you, it is near impossible for me to pick a spot, mark it, and set destination without 10 to 15 different attempts.

    Hi everyone.

    Alright, this is enough derailing.
    As mentioned in the forum rules (III. Prohibited actions, 13th point):
    "Discussions and comments involving real life politics, ideology or religion. These can be incendiary topics and will usually lead to inappropriate behavior and uncomfortable situations."

    As the whole idea of this topic is to make the discussion political, it will be now locked.
    You're free to comment on liking (or not) some parts of the current gameplay, and it can be beneficial to improve the system, but don't start to bring politics into it, or make some assumptions about a potential political agenda behind it. There is none. The game offers possibilities, maybe not all those each player would like to see, but in the long run, the goal is (and has always been) to aim  to give players as many possibilities as possible. If it will become more limited than expected, it will be essentially due to time, balance or technical constraints, nothing more.

    Best Regards,
    Nyzaltar.

    There is currently a free trail, no install needed; go into your backyard with a shovel, stick it in the dirt, repeat the words "PENDING OPERATION" about 20 times before scooping the dirt out.  Repeat endlessly.  Enjoy your new Spaceship game!

    Neat update yesterday.  Fixed the problem of sometimes NOT getting "Pending Operation" while I'm digging out this meganode.  Pretty sweet.  I'll be enjoying this process for much much longer now, which will obviously save me the hassle of finding more ore to mine.  So...... hooray.....
     
    @GraXXoR, I must apologize for previously scoffing at the bitterness;  I've got it all trained up now to lv5.  So, a rare thing here, an internet apology.  I was wrong.  You were right.  Womp womp

    I realize this is an old problem, and one that was apparently fixed after the last patch.  Glad everyone got it sorted..... except I never had that problem UNTIL the last patch.  It took me 20 minutes to dig a 100m hole the last time I logged on.  Cleared cache, no change.  I have looked about on forums and Reddit, and only see reference to this issue from waaaaay back, nothing current.  I have my graphics settings dumbed way down, cache cleared.  Nothing seems to change the painful "Pending Operation" mining Hell. 
     
    Any tricks I'm missing to sort this out or am I S.O.L. ?

    Yes. Even if you parked your stuff right in the middle of a market place platform and left it there for months...
     
    even if you were blocking other people from landing on the platform...
     
    even if you haven’t logged in for a quarter of a year and others’ numerous constructs were causing players’ computers to lag and their ship to plummet into the ground and explode...
     
    even if you left automated scripts running that cause players’ computers to act up and throw errors into the LUA session panel every time they try to pass by...
     
    even if it’s plastered with screens playing Rick Astley on loop...
     
    even if something like a corrupted voxel in your ship caused their client to crash to desktop every time they visit the site. 
     
    even if you pasted a randomly-generated, 24 character string that you could not possibly remember as your password, change your email address then delete the game from your hard drive... and swear never to touch the game again...
     
    even then, at this moment in time: Your.stuffz.will.still.be.in.the.game
