  1. While i know there are already some topics mentioning Re-entry i thought it fit to make an entire thread dedicated to this.

    Re-entry is something i believe Dual universe could use for a great deal of reasons.

    For example you could use it as a weapon, ramming ships into atmosphere to the point where they burn up.
    Not even to mention that it is a feature that few space sims like this have succeeded in. It wouldnt be too harsh on PC's as well. I cant see a little light coming off a ship and the ship exploding really affecting anything, especially considering what other things will be going on.

    Either way. Thats my suggestion. Not much, but yeah.:D


  2. Like mentioned above this doesn't seem like the best idea as you already have to deal with the issues of an open universe. When you are offline your base/ship/creation could be blown to smithereens, and what do you have to replace it? nothing. If people start losing quanta as well as having that risk people will start being annoyed and ultimately cease playing the game altogether.


  3. Well it wouldnt be too hard to do it. If they implement broadcasting through the LUA (as mentioned in messaging with lua) someone is bound to sit down and figure out a way to transmit images, and even transmit moving images. At which point you will have TV. And i can imagine waking up one morning on alioth and getting on my PC, and logging into the player made OS, and then seeing that being broadcasted. Awesome idea.^_^


  4. I love the concept of  a thriving economy, especially one that can go into a depression. This means that you will have to foresee this kind of thing happening, and i bet some players will even build a stock market to help see this kind of thing coming to fluition. My only issue with it would be players intentionally trying to cause this to happen. If you think about it one clever person could sell enough of one thing to crash it's prices, and then your market starts having issues.

    Well, I am used to being in a 'bubble', as they say, where the inside of a ship, including flyable hangar area is basically a server instance whose external 'body' can move around in space.

    I imagine this makes relative movement within the construct much easier too - when piloting or manning guns you are sort of pasted statically in your seats onto the outside of the ship, as it were, but inside you have freedom of moment just like in any building on land.

    I see no reason why constructs should not be stored in server memories pretty much as instances, even if they are only 'single instances' each. No idea on what NQ have done, except that you'd probably notice the 'seams' as your avatar crosses them. An entry sequence or airlock would disguise this....

    Makes sense. Im impressed such a new company to the buisness can pull this kind of game off.

    @gladiator550 That is now your assigned quick-access nomenclature. See also: nick-name.

    a human being, especially a person as distinguished from an animal or (in science fiction) an alien.

    Query: What is "alien" in the context of beings not being native to a region?

    Thank you human.


  7. While that argument is incredibly compelling, i feel windows just has the user base to survive. So many people grew up knowing how windows work, and it all comes down to that. Yes, they may be classed as ignorant, but windows is just built into the infrastructure at this point. I do completely agree with that it might fall apart. Also i believe windows is so popular due to how easy it is to use. I do think DUAL universe should definitely go onto the other platforms though. this game should be avalible to everyone, in my opinion  the more players the better. ;)


  8. I can imagine the cities being useful for jobs and such. Players would be attracted to the cities if they didnt want to do something big, like an organization, for solo players it would be much easier to start a small buisness (AKA a bar/shop/restraunt) This is also good because it would propogate more economics. If possible i think it'd be cool for players to buy homes from other players, so people pay for the crazy detailed and complex building that they wouldn't be able to build, maybe due to lack of skill. I love the concept of a bustling city that isnt just there for looks. And the city having requirements would provide more contracts for people. I can imagine the worker in the electrical plant causing a city wide overload and then blackout. :lol:

    An option in the games settings would be nice for that  ;)

    Agreed. I wholeheartedly think this should be an option. Megaddd gave me flashbacks to warframe, which as he mentioned has tons of these, they are cool at first, but they get infuriated after enough time playing the game. And after 300 hours, trust me, they are something i wish i could disable.

    That is what i'm talking about. More tense game play, more way to do not just only hacking. I very hope NQ will let Org build their Fire Wall. No tool, no skill will help you, only left is your brain :)

    Custom firewalls. What's next? Someone literally making an operating system. We need that. Desperately. Maybe even an internet.


  11. Exciting. I can already see all the holographic dancers. I can also imagine this being used to make an interactive display that shows damaged chunks of your ship during a fight. Think the opening of halo 4, where there is a hologram that is saying "your ship is 80% broke.".


  12. This is definitely a good idea, and to prevent lag you could have the video be client side. Example the players in question would have to go into a building and accept a request when near the screen to receive the audio/video. This would mean that You cant hear any of it from a distance, or even if you are right behind a wall to it, but if you are in the same room, you can enable it.


  13.  Hello, I'm Anotaros, a sci-fi nerd who hasn't used a forum in a long time, but is excited to get into it with such an incredibly active community and such an exciting project.

     

    Not gonna lie, when i saw this game i thought i was dreaming. Then i wasn't dreaming and i realized this may be my "perfect game" so im ecstatic at the idea of getting right into the community and talking with everyone about the game, and can't wait for the game to be finished.

    When i get into the game im hoping to become a freelance builder who just builds cool space stations, and maybe some structures on the ground, using the advanced building system i have heard so much about.

    Beyond that i want to help the devs get all the servers nice and cozy for the release so that the players of the universe can enjoy their time in the game.
