  1. What they forget is that if you want to be succesfull in masses you dont need high quality perfect voxel works, you need simple everyone can do it from tech advanced to 12 year olds with no computer experience. If you want what is said by NQ to actually work yu need to concider making it as simple as sims. A sims on different worlds with a world portal in every home would do it, with direct acces to other worlds all fully build on a preset by the developer. Just like in the first Lego movie, any subject you can use should be a world, syfy, western, film noir, Umbrella corp..... The idea is as simple as that but the actual development will be hell if you want to do it from scratch and dont want to pay high server costs and are too cheapassed to build your own data center with high class server accessability. In short, unless backed by someone like Gates or Musk you will have a hard time. You dont need the wizzkids as sups you need the bored house wives/men. And if you cannot develop for that group, forget it.
  2. Your very positive Probably they hope to be bought by meta or any other high class roller, well if they ever read these forums its endgame. So expect these forums to de discontinued soon.
  3. So in short, OP has a point to ask this question and wonder about digital safety.
  4. Just take the break and everything gets deleted, frankly is there any reason to come back from a break in the current state? As long as we cannot rebuild civilization as promoted this game has a serious issue with playability.
  5. with even 11 dac in my pocket, there is no reason to get back. Updates are late, expantions vaporware, and the basic game is worse then the end-alpha version (when it was marketed as alpha, not the version we have now that is barely not alpha) Even a free version would be a waste of time compared to other once pay/always play space games. A firm rebounse to the roots with a well defined redevelopment could change that but that requires the vision that people need other stuff more then, lets say, purple voxels
  6. De-install and wait for a reaction of NQ on this forum. Thats what we all should do. Anything a regular antivirus detects in software is a reason to think twice of installing. Even if this is safe, do I really want NQ to be able to do stuff or read stuff on my property?
  7. I still have about 11 dacs in storage but frankly the game isnt worth activating them, maybe someday it will, but not today
  8. Yep, this game made itself obsolete long time ago. When a budget cut is presented as a game improvement you have hit rock bottom.
  9. It is scammy for some time now. Selling a brick as a plane because it can fly is just as scammy, just be fuzzy about the actual length it can actually fly and add enough limitations to what you believe the word flying can mean. It also helps to make sure your HQ is not in the US or EU and your probably safe from legislation. Disclaimer: Scammy is an immaginary term and all names or items or localizations are based on fiction. No animals or aliens were hurt in this post. No claims can be made from anything people can anyhow read in this post either in full health or under really good funny medication or muschrooms or other means of self education
  10. Since day one people who break rules in the game are not stopped so why need anti cheat anyway?
  11. 33 Million players play Sim 4. Maybe, just maybe that shows that crossing over DU/sims might be the best option into getting this viable. The how too is simple, just give me a call.
  12. Since day one, game is having rubberbanding and other lag issues since day one
  13. Frankly, looking back to the start the main issue here is the servers, the ideas are still nice, the outcome is not. What did make the most difference? I believe its server stress, from day one till now. All restricions should be returned, mining should be mining, ores should regrow, schematics scrapped and replaced with a working tech tree, industry real and the production cheap and abundant, this all to make the most stuff possible so nobody cares if their capital hip gets destroyed in all out war. reintroduction of the ultra cores, and thats upto 2 km or larger, or better yet introduce core-less structure building. Make industry dynamic, actually add the stargates And make the teleport systems be produceable to all. Make it possible to actually have effective cities, so reintroduce html, also beds, chairs, showers need an actual, use, also homes should have a use. that way people come and actually feel like they have a life in DU, add a bit of Sims into DU. If NPC should be there make them automatically appear in cities and able to communicate, bond, etc by a impressive AI system. Add other races but make them all playable, and then not some groce stuff, just popular stuf like androids, kitties, whatever In short, maka a game we dont need npc other then simply social interaction, and maybe marry and get DU-kids with because we can actually all be what we want to be since servers dont restrict us, bring out those other solar systems, stop with the 3 HQ restriction and make plots buyable and selleble per plot, and stop taxes. I can continue for hrs but well im not in game development, If you look at all other popular games and combine all the stuff there its about 5 minutes and you have anything you need in a game. I still think this can be turned around, so NQ give me a call and lets see what I can DU for you now Ill even DU it for free! I'm not into MMO gaming for over 30 years for nothing, my word is my bond. So here an open invitation to invite me and more here to look at what can easely be done to turn the game around. First Tip, open an event for modders to add functions to lifeless stuff that actually matters!
  14. Pay more? the price per month is already higher then triple a rated mmo's. And there you actually can DU stuff, has events that matter, stuff works, companys communicate, upgrades are upgrades, limitations are there to actually balance gameplay and not reduce server stress, Nuff said?
  15. @Zeddrick Well written arguments, nothing to add there. One other thing NQ did and keeps on doing to make it impossible for players to have fun is limit really everything. Almost everything that was possible in alpha has gotten a limitation of some kind, and those in general did make the game worse. In general if the players need to generate content but the content generated is costing you too much to keep on a crippled server the road forward is severely blocked. Game got so boring there is actually no reason to log in, frankly i rather go to work and have fun with my co-workers
