    GraXXoR reacted to Lethys in Please Respawn ores   
    that's why there are safezones and tbh IDC how big they are. For all I care there can be a whole safe system with 20 planets to explore, build, casually do whatever you want.
     
    As long as 20 other systems are for territory warfare, pvp, juicy high tier ore and all that jazz
     
    Don't see the problem really

    GraXXoR reacted to Koruzarius in 3D Rendering with the new screen tech   
    Hey all! So I've been playing around with the new screen tech on the PTS, and decided to try to create a basic 3D renderer. It was a bit of a pain because there's a 50,000 character limit, and no vector libraries in place (yet?) but it was a fun challenge, and it runs fairly well!
     
     
     
    Anyone else playing around with the new screens yet?

    GraXXoR got a reaction from Mordgier in What's the deal with Asteroids NQ?   
    I imagined something like SC or ED’s implementation of asteroids.  Entire rings around certain planets or massive swathes like in NMS. 
     
    instead NQ are going to roll them out one at a time? Surely not?

    I understand your point, but the reality is that MC has proven that it can retain and grow a massive, massive audience of players.
     
    You're saying you spent years in MC...that's really good retention and lends evidence to the idea that building is a viable niche. 
     
    Everything about MC's demographics suggests that builders can carry a game financially. I mean...MC is among the most successful games in history. Yes, people get bored eventually, but that's true of every game ever, sub or MMO or otherwise. 
     
    Nearly 30 million people bought Minecraft last year alone (2020)...DU won't get 30 million sales for its entire life. 
     
    I'm not understanding the idea that builders can't carry a game financially because there's ample evidence in the industry to suggest otherwise.

    I feel like you might be trying to make a point, but I can't quite put my finger on it 😏
     
    All my stuff is floating in space far from any seriously populated planets and is only accessible by ship. You'd also need to know exactly where it is. All that other stuff you listed sounds like a lot of work (which is the main reason I bailed on the game/work simulator), although Rick Astley on loop would be cool.

    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...

    GraXXoR reacted to Cheith in Why PVP is important to the game.   
    Right - so you agree - essentially a paywall to get the resources that some other group of people set up. That is the EVE system when you boil it down.
     
    You also make an assumption that this all about money for the builders. For some it will be, but in a game where you can build anything and everything that is just not true - it is about time. If I can mine the resources and you don't put the blueprints in a PvP zone then I can build and I don't need the income.
     
    There are other perfectly reasonable ways of generating decay other than PvP such as 'rusting', 'weathering' or proper crash damages rather than what we have now. PvP is not the be all and end all of an economy if you 'do it right'. The problem for many players is if 'dong it right' doesn't involve shooting other players who don't want to be shot at it seems to be an issue.

    I stopped playing DU a few months after Beta, due to all the bugs and quite frankly it got boring. The game just felt like a mining simulator. I built a space station and a couple of ships, will they still be there when I rejoin? I'll come back when mining units are ready.

    After my post yesterday, I got Sofmap, the shop I bought the 3080 from, to contact Zotac in Hong Kong again (where the card was sent for repair). They got back to me a few hours later and it turns out Zotac now say that they don't have the replacement parts to repair the card so they haven't been able to start the process of fixing it yet... And since it takes anywhere up to a month for merchandise to reach Japan from Hong Kong, May is looking increasingly unlikely...  
     
    off topic post, but:
     
    I still reckon they're just using my card in one of their mining warehouses.

    Estimates from Forbes and Bloomberg suggest that anywhere up to 75% (with a low end of 65%) of all bitcoin mining takes place in China and that percentages is growing rapidly, they use about 150Twh per year already and this is projected to nearly double in the next three years.

    With bitcoin prices so high due to people like Elon Musk purposefully playing the markets to boost its value, China are raking in billions of dollars every day now: Chinese Bitcoin is estimated to be worth about $600,000,000,000...  (Which to be honest is actually only 3 Bezoses)

    It's more profitable for chinese manufacturers to manufacture GPUs or specifically MPUs for mining locally and paying the penalties for reneging on their international contracts or missing their delivery dates than it is to actually ship completed product to the west.

    That is why we are seeing a nearly 1 year and growing waiting list for a whole bevvy of silicon products now: Any silicon not severely and iron-clad contracted from before the pandemic (i.e. Apple, Samsung, Intel) is not going to reach the customer, instead it will go to feed the local bitcoin efforts.
