  1. You can move mountains from a distance and fit them into your pocket next to your collection of warehouse and space ship parts. You can also melt metals in the palm of your hand, and put together or take apart entire structures through force of will. You are the envy of many a marvel superhero.

    Any plans on mining tools

    For someone who posts pictures of mining drills from other games (and his general take on things), I suspect the cosmetic aspect also plays a big role. It's form over function. Playing with cool looking power tools, looks cool and feels powerful. It's not just about getting those resources, it's mostly about satisfying the need to have a badass self-image. (which is about the fear of being vulnerable and helpless). That's also why people like to break other people's toys.

    Upgrade my pack?

    If you login at https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/profile there should be an "upgrade pledge" button. I never used it so I don't know if it works but I'm guessing it should.

    Tutorial: Voxelmancy Essentials

    It doesn't happen with all pictures, only some pictures. But the ones it does happen with, never seem to pop in (as far as I've seen anyway). I tried disabling browser plugins but made no difference. Ah well... Thanks in any case.

    Game needs Digfighting

    Actually it was a joke with reference to what you said about realistic modern warfare (hence the quotation marks). Because it occured to me that vehicle collisions as a viable tactic would be no more realistic than dog fights. So the often used realism argument doesn't even hold up in practice.

    How sad is that then.

    Why am I only seeing "CmdyO0XVIAA7UCe.jpg" instead of the actual picture? It's not the first time this happens either.

    A RESTful Api to for Third Party Applications

    Good point, so I assume that I wouldn't need to travel to that person in-game in order to do that? Sounds like something that would make sense to put in an eventual web api. Not just for this simple scenario but think of the possibilities for large org management. Also what if I simply never thought about putting optional guest permissions on my ship. I'm just saying, it could still be useful to do it remotely. Unless there are good reasons for not allowing it of course.

    A RESTful Api to for Third Party Applications

    Maybe RDMS access would also be a good candidate to be part of an eventual web api. Unless of course NQ wants that you always have to physically travel (in-game) to the thing you want to edit the RDMS settings on. I haven't heard anything about the ability to do it remotely, but I don't know of any reasons not to. Would there be exploits? Let's say I'm on planet A and I have a ship on planet B that a friend wants to borrow. So either I would have to travel to planet B to give them permissions, or the game allows me to do it from wherever I am on planet A. If the latter, then I think it would also make sense to put it in the web api (if there is one). But if the former then obviously not.

    Is the Game Worth it ?

    Dog fighting seems unlikely. Dig fighting, however...

    Interface configuration

    Better to ask questions like that in the pre-alpha forum, because of the NDA. Nobody will be able to give detailed answers in the public forum.

    Do you play EVE Online?

    Right I've never multiboxed, and in asking my question I personally wasn't thinking about being logged on with multiple characters at the same time. I just thought about switching between them (until Lethys mentioned afk scouts but I also didn't realize that you need separate accounts to log on at the same time).

    Ah ok lol, makes sense, cheers.

    Do you play EVE Online?

    But you can use up to three characters on the same account for different things like you said, such as afk scout or watching markets, or an expendable character for infiltration etc. Or specializing in different things like trading, building, pvp, covert ops, pirate, whatever. I know you can't skill them all at the same time, that's what I said. So as far as I know that's the only advantage of having multiple accounts, i.e. you can train skills on one character per account simultaneously (and you get 3 characters per account). My question was if there are any other advantages to having multiple accounts besides that, or if that's the only advantage. That is multiple paid subscriptions, not just multiple characters. I was asking so I can decide whether it's worth the extra subscription cost to me. (sigh it's getting very repetitive now so I guess I have my answer lol, thanks guys)

    Do you play EVE Online?

    Ok but I would think that you can do all of that with one account, for up to three characters. Guess I asked a very difficult question! Cheers guys

    Do you play EVE Online?

    I think that's the idea though: https://dualuniverse.gamepedia.com/Archive:Kickstarter_AMA_Q%26A,_Part_One#Multiple_Characters Anyway aside from the simultaneous skill training thing, are there any other advantages to having multiple accounts? Surely you have thought about this if you're willing to pay multiple subscriptions for it...( @blazemonger in any case, @Lethys as well if I remember correctly, and probably others)?
  22. Nanoman

    Do you play EVE Online?

    Yes but you can have up to three characters on the same account, right? Except you can only train skills on one of them at a time. So by having multiple accounts (and multiple monthly subscriptions) you get what exactly? Is it only the ability to train skills on each account simultaneously (and have more than three characters in total), or is there something else that I've overlooked? I'm still deciding if I want multiple accounts or not, that's why I ask.
