  1. In short, I feel this new features are incomplete : - We need element and product recycling to deal with almost destroyed elements, and not delete them (full destruction of resources in a world with finite resources, can't go well in the long term) - why can't we sell second hand elements ? It can be good enough for designers, ships galeries/museum, newbies ! - We should be able to "Replace" with a downgraded version/tiers/variant of the same element. We always should be able to replace a Giga Super XL Military Engine by a Basic XL Engine. - I can't understand why you removed the core size involved in detection range. It was quite a simple way to implement a first step to furtivity and you could have replaced it by involving cross section in the formula. But now, whatever the shape or your ship, you will be detected only if the hostile radar is small or large. Said differently, a L ship or a XS ship will be detected and locked the same under the radar range. I think it's a downgrade of current mechanisms.
  2. Totally agree with the initial post even if I DO believe that DU needs PvP, even the most sauvage version of it. But the game, on this aspect, is really unbalanced. Some ideas : - no exploitable external view while in PvP combat, for example no engine control or weapon activation => no more seat in voxel blobs, no more blind voxel blocks => add the need to design proper cockpits with usable view. - seats needs to be "inside" the ship. Totally possible as they are already able to detect it (for the sound) - currently, PvP is a huge and sharp cissor and a very thin leaf and a tiny rock. Pure escaping ship (speed or signature) or tanky ship should be able to manage encounters without problem. And these feature should be exclusive with heavily weaponized ships. Using capacity, perhaps? With thrust enhancer or shield, plugged on the seat? - no build mode while in combat. You should be able to repair from inside the ship. Just some ideas.
  3. Like for Elite Dangerous, we will have plenty of external web tools with crowdsourced data like market, maps, org database and so on. Don't expect a direct link between ingame Lua Scripts and real world. You, as a player, will be this link. Use databanks as databuffers, that need to be dumped regularly in a real database (or just a spreadsheet)
  4. Le groupe est vraiment fier d'avoir atteint 50 membres, 50 Gardiens et Gaiens. Un long chemin a été parcouru ensemble et nous ne comptons pas ralentir le pas. Rejoignez-nous et veillez sur l'équilibre de cette nouvelle Humanité, avec votre créativité, votre désir de rencontres, votre ouverture d'esprit, votre diplomatie, et si nécessaire, votre volonté de combattre. The group is really proud to have reached 50 members, 50 Guardians and Gaians. We have come a long way together and we do not intend to slow down. Join us and watch over the balance of this new Humanity, with your creativity, your desire for new encounters, your openness in diplomacy, and if necessary, your will to fight.
  5. Different vision of RP here. We think RP is just positioning his avatar and/or his organisation in the world, define identity and method and act accordingly with logic, lore and game mechanics. This is not playing an artificial role with full created background, lore and capacities (like "we are a people from another galaxies with telekinesis powers" or "we are a millenar empire".... No we are all All naked in a cryopods until the release, and coming directly from earth!).
  6. Our will : meet the Noveans, help and advise those who ask for it, collect and promote good ideas, hunt down and eliminate bad ones, always searching for the better and most immersive experience in Dual Universe. Our methods : erect a Temple on each planet and moon, build a Sanctuary in each city welcoming us, show our new civilization, in its best and worst aspect, always on the move from projects to projects, from cities to cities and, if needed, from battle to battle. Our players : mature, creative, laid-back and fun kind of people, wanting to play together on common and individual projects, in a trustful relationship. Mostly french and english speaking but open to anyone wanting to share time and ideas with everyone.
  7. As you said, this idea opens too much space for exploits. PvP players would organize themselves to have the most toughness possible, defeating each other in friendly training. The only way to deal with the fact that there will be powerful and weak characters (because we need this, it creates a lively society...) is to enforce the inter-dependencies between all players. If industrious and carebear transporters players are necessary to PvP core game, they will be protected and encouraged to continue their business. In the opposite, if a player can be powerful AND autonomous, it's like Homelander in The Boys, he can do what he wants for no particular reason. 🐵
  8. Better production for this introduction video :
  9. The Old Guard is honored to welcome Heldric and Shealladh as Brother and Sister of the Old Guard. Heldric is a very dedicated voxel builder, searching for the perfect technics. Shealladh's aim is to gather knowledge and build the first Library of DU ! - - - - L'Ordre des Gardiens de Gaia est honoré d'accueillir Heldric et Shealladh. Heldric s'intèresse de près aux voxels et compte en maitriser les arcanes. Shealladh souhaite tout simplement bâtir la plus grande Bibliothèque de DU pour y accueillir tout le savoir de ces nouveaux mondes. Discord Website NQ Community website
  10. Guy, you are already losing weeks and months of your lifetime playing video games ... ?
  11. https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/the-old-guard-of-gaia-fr We speak french and english !
  12. The Old Guard is glad to welcome Geolidas and Eleena as Brother and Sister of the Old Guard. They share with us a taste for immersion and good atmosphere in a real group where every member know each others and work together. Geolidas is a weathered drone pilot IRL and will be a perfect fit for flight tests. Eleena is interested in architecture and is full of visual ideas to experiment ingame. Our first priestess ! - - - - - L'Ordre des Gardiens de Gaia est heureux d'accueillir Geolidas and Eleena en son sein en tant que Frère et Soeur de l'Ordre des Gardiens, membres à part entière de notre groupe. Ils partagent avec nous un goût pour l'immersion et la bonne ambiance, dans un vrai groupe où chacun se connait et tout le monde travaille ensemble. Geolidas est un pilote de drone expérimenté IRL et sera parfait dans le rôle de pilote d'essai. Eleena s'intéresse à l'architecture et vient avec pleins d'idées visuelles à expérimenter en jeu. Notre première prétresse ! Discord Website NQ Community website
  13. 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.
  14. Noveans, Here is our current structure and some explanations.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 !
  18. 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
  19. 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 !
  20. 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.
  21. This post was exactly the same idea than here :
