    I haven't posted a lot here but I feel the need to vent!
     It is nearly impossible to get valuable ores off of safe zone asteroids now due to the 20 or more players on each roid competing for the resources.

    Only way to get them is to wait for one to NEWLY pop up in RUMOURED and be quick about getting there. NQ turned this into a waiting game followed by a race to the rock! Popping out one roid every hour is NOT a good way to limit ore. Please reconsider this change. It would be much better if 5 to 10 were released at a time so that it would thin the heard!
    This is not fun and I have lost the will to even play. 



    This is factually incorrect on several fronts. You could scan down an asteroid yourself.

    After skilling up in surface harvesting, I flew back to sanctuary and It took me 90 minutes to strip mine my hex. 
    sold the ores to Aphelia (who else, ffs) for 2,000,000 ℏ and took the T2 back to Thades. 

    there was about 3 or 4K of each T2 ore. I don’t even remember since it was such an inconsequential amount. 

    The sky is still shitstain brown and the tile is now lifeless and dead. 


    God forbid there be an atmosphere. 


    Perhaps you should build on the tile like the game intends. Did NQ promise you a life-filled tile?

    Temporary. LOL.

    Oh you sweet summer child. 


    Five years has seen very little positive change and much revert to little more than it was in the Alpha. 

    Why should the consumers who are paying to use a product be the ones responsible for designing the product?


    Henry Ford once said ask a person what they want and all they would have said was a faster horse. 

    in any case even though I’m not a game designer, I have already given my idea and opinions a hundred times. But just like everyone else who has, they have been ignored.  There is zero meaning giving ideas at this point in time. 

    zero.  The game will get made in whatever way NQ choose, since they are building their own game, not our game. 





    You are factually incorrect. For instance, when people did not like the schem system, it was changed. That is a direct example of NQ listening. A claim that there is "zero" meaning is not true, as I have provided an example meaning it cannot be zero. Other examples exist, but that is not necessary as you claim there is zero reason.

    At this point in the game's history, I honestly see no point in giving one's suggestions any more.

    Pretty much everything you have said has been suggested in some form or other by others both here and even more pointlessly on Discord.

    NQ are developing the game at their own pace, in their own way and very obviously, in their own sweet time. They clearly don't need our opinions. /shrug/


    My first ever gripe with DU, made over 4 years ago, IIRC was XS Space Tanks, this was requested dozens if not hundreds of times. And at loooooooong last, in the "Final Release" (LOL), version of the game, they were added.


    Instead of listening and adding one scaled element to the game, a few years later they introduced a fuelling access point which was not a linkable element but was basically just a 1 voxel micro-door. LOL.

    It took nearly 50 months to introduce one single element which had been requested repeatedly so many times that to me, it almost became a meme.




    They interact with out opinions all the time. They implement things based on our decisions. JC even quit because peoples' opinions turned against him so strongly. Your statement is not founded in fact. Saying they develop the game at their own chosen pace is simply a ridiculous statement. They work as quickly as they can while not rushing things through. They dont sit at home and go ".... hmmm..... I think I could take another two months on this because I feel like it." Thats a ridiculous claim for a company with supervisors and investors. 


    If you dont like the game, why are you here?

    The whole premise of “entirely player driven and built” is a laughing stock.  This was actually a reply deep in a thread somewhere so I just thought I’d dig it out and post it here. Sorry if you’ve read this already. 


    bots control our hex-rent. Bots control our schematics. Bots control our sales taxes. Bots hand out and receive missions. Bots sell pretty much everything anyone needs. Bots buy stupid almost unlimited amounts of ore and bots hand out a daily stipend. And bots control whether or not we can fire weapons. 

    what is there actually left to play and strive for other than building?


    why is there no energy required to run anything? Why is there no oxygen requirements for our habitats?

    why is there no food or farming? 

    why are there no threatening box life forms that raid our camps?


    why are there no mysteries beyond a few lowest possible effort alien cores?



    what an absolute joke. 



    A lot of this is temporary. Do you have solutions to offer or are you just blindly complaining?

  6. I have claimed a 30-tile tier 4 node and am almost finished with full mining skills. 


    I am looking for investors to help me with the start up cost of the Rare mining units. 


    No one person needs to pay for the whole thing. You can make any amount contribution and you will receive 5x the amount you sent once the mining is running. 


    I will be building the units, so ore is accepted as well. 


    You may receive your reimbursement in t4 ore or quanta. The amount returned will be equal to your investment, times five.

    this game shud be rebuilt from the ground up to have a chance to deliver 1/5th of its promised featureset.    DU is a mismanged mess that never shud have seen the light of day in its current form. 

    im sure from the steam sales they hoover up a few more victims to keep this charade up for a while, but give or take 3 months and most of those people will quit, and then wut?? 



    This is ridiculous. 

  8. I am scanning under the ocean. It is incredibly difficult to see the tile borders with the V view on. The 'hex walls' don't display when their background is the rest of the ocean. IE, the borders show on the section that is angled down, and the background is the ocean floor, but as soon as the hexes rise above the ocean floor (from the players perspective) the lines entirely disappear. It is making placing my tri scanner difficult. Is there anything I can do?

    I was mildly sad when I noticed it's day X today and I have not been able to bring myself to connect since idk... june or so?? Byebye my stuff, you deserved to be inventoried so I can spam the list on any screen I'll ever build ingame, but it wasn't meant to be...




    But your comment just gave me goosebumbs, thank you for your perspective. I feel so unencumbered.


    You're welcome :) 

  10. I try not to be negative because I love this game so much but this is really aggravating. Not only do we not have a time but the day itself is apparently still up for change? I'm literally calling out of work for this as I imagine many are, who have been waiting eight years. Not only that, but apparently they cant be asked to reply to us in this thread? 


    I am disappointed. 

  11. I have been a backer for *many* years. I play on an i9, 3090ti with ddr5 ram. I am a computer science teacher. 


    I am looking to join a team. I want to contribute in some way that the team needs in exchange for efficient answers to questions. 


    The most valuable resource that I can attain is the ability to ask a question and get an answer. Likewise, warm bodies are surely a valuable resource for a team. Hopefully there is someone out there that can provide and appreciate the arrangement. 


    If I can answer anything else please let me know. 

  12. You should all know that the chances of finding a randomly placed station increases exponentially with the distance from the most populated area. The statistical chances become infinitesimal very quickly. Though I am not a fan of the current mechanic, it is entirely logical to use hiding as a military tactic in this case. 

  13. What are some of the best ways for me to buy core BP's between now and reset? IE are there hubs/locations I should go to to buy from a market unit, are there individuals selling lots, or do I need to contact as many individual sellers as possible? Any insight would help thank you
