    Neutrality Signs?

    We can not mimic reality because DU is a very different kind of world : nobody really dies, nobody really suffers. There's no moral conflict, no limit to what a player can consider as fun. He shoots at a medical facility ? Well, there's no dying people nor children inside, just voxel exploding in the void. So neutrality won't be respected in the game every time an organisation thinks this is a fun thing to shoot at neutral people. Neutrality will only be respected if they have funnier thing to do elsewhere.

    An alternative respawn lore

    Altered Carbon.

    Game needs Digfighting

    The actual fighters are already Lock&Fire beyond visual range. It would be logic to have this on our spacecraft and no more dogfighting. But we have a long way before the first PvP mechanisms. And I'm wondering if they won't put PvP at the very end of the development to let creative and community players build a world before letting others destroying it.

    RolePlaying, My hopes and Dreams from this game.

    In such a game, you can't introduce roleplay out of nowhere like scenario, character creation, lore creation. The world will evolve out of the control of any GM. And the lore is simple when the game will begin : we all were on Earth just some minutes ago, in our mind. So any lore is litteraly beginning the day of the last DU server wipe. It is more a "RP event" kind of game, with an objective and a team. And they deal with real attacks, real problems, real personnality. As for me, roleplay in this kind of game should be limited to this : define a Big Objective, define a method to reach it in the long term and choose some behavior rules. And the most important : stick to it whatever it happens and stay consistent. But it doesn't imply a different kind of gameplay ingame like talking and acting weird. The griefer part is a real issue. I like the concept of full PvP full loot, because it induces real behaviors, real alliances, real need of protection, in short, the foundation of any civilisation. But for some, PK is the core of their gameplay because unlike real life, there is no death penalty nor lifetime jail for murder. So this is easy to target carebears and above all, this is riskless ! A game developement studio will never introduce a temporary ban if the player is caught and put in jail. This is the main unbalance when dealing with the PvP/PK issue in any game. They only have rewards and no punishments.
  6. The Old Guard is glad to welcome Moysea and roghienAx after the last pre-alpha session. Moysea is a long distance traveler and experimented ship builder, with ton of ideas and will be a perfect explorer and prospector among Inquisitors. roghienAx is our first non-french speaking member. He joined us as a Follower, from the Delta Confederation and shows how the OGG can welcome noveans from another main organisation. Followers can join our missions, our projects and stay with us in our sanctuaries. They can decide not to have strong ties with us, as long as they share our values about aesthetic in creations, landscape protection and balance of power. The difference with the members of the Old Guard is that Brothers pledge only to the OGG as a main executive organisation, and can vote about strategic decisions. The salary/contribution aspect is still to be decided, depending on the released features. Join The Old Guard, as a Brother or as a Follower ! Show the beautiful, hunt the ugly and put all your weight on the light side of the scale ! - - - - - L'Ordre des Gardiens de Gaia est heureuse d'accueillir Moysea and roghienAx en son sein après la dernière session de test de la pre-alpha. Moysea est un grand voyageur et un constructeur de vaisseau expérimenté, avec pleins d'idées, et fera un parfait exploreur et prospecteur au sein des Inquisiteurs. roghienAx est notre première membre non francophone. Il nous rejoint en tant qu'Adepte (Follower), tout en restant dans laDelta Confederation et montre comment l'OGG peut intégrer des Noveans déjà membre d'une organisation principale. Les Adeptes participent à nos missions et à nos projets et sont chez eux dans tous nos Sanctuaires. Ils peuvent aussi décider de se tenir à distance de nos activités, tant qu'il partage nos idéaux sur l'esthétique de toute création humaine, de la préservation des paysages, et du maintien de l'équilibre des influences. Un Membre de l'Ordre des Gardiens doit en revanche ne pas avoir d'autres organisations exécutives et peut voter sur les décisions stratégiques. Les aspects salaires et contributions doivent être encore définis, au fur et à mesure de la sortie des nouvelles fonctionnalités. Rejoignez l'Ordre des Gardiens, en tant que Membre de l'OGG ou Adepte de Gaia ! Montrer le beau, traquez le laid, et maintenez l'équilibre des forces !

    [FR/EN] DELTA Confederation

    Ok so this is The Old Guard of Gaia in english, l'Ordre des Gardiens de Gaia in french, this is not a literal translation I think that it will be shorten "The Old Guard" quite soon
  8. The Old Guard welcomes three new brothers ! Quintus11 and Deirdre Skye are fond of design and architecture : one for huge construction, the other for stylish ones. We can trust them to mix the best of their technics. Rospionne is a ship designer with a lot of ideas, ready to test them. Come and join us, be one of the founders, and help us shaping the organisation for its first steps on Alioth. Our organisation will be fluid enough to fit with your prefered gameplay ! To complete the initial team, we still need LUA developers, traders and business-oriented profiles. But any noveans interested in our ideas can contact us for information or integration ! See you in the Dual Universe !

    A RESTful Api to for Third Party Applications

    I'm not sure I want too much external tools... I love the idea to have a Dual world and everything in it. It would be to players and market managers to offer data to this kind of tool, but inside the game.
  10. This post was exactly the same idea than here :

    Voxel Editors for Ship Designing

    I'll give this a try ! I need to plan my building in my spare time (read "when the DU server is not alive")
  12. Interesting concept. How the quanta transfer will take place to assure the agent to stay anonymous ?
  13. The Old Guard is still recruiting. All profiles accepted, from the lone explorer to the PvP players, and especially creators like builders, ship designers, miners, traders and LUA coder. The Old Guard is a young and ambitious organization, open to new ideas and new projects. We are eager to hear your ideas ! Come and ask for more information in this forum, or in our Discord : https://discord.gg/wyrQbWM

    New kid on the block !

    As a notice, I just created the Old Guard of Gaïa, a FR/EN organisation with the ambition to become a common DU cult or spiritual aspect. We believe that these new worlds are beautiful and we will take care of those preserving the harmony and chaos of nature in their creations... and those who are spoiling it with ugly things or behaviors deserve to die..errrr, be resurrected in the Arkship a lot of times :).
