    Military contracts are mostly given to companies that are within the Union.
    Your company will be allowed to have contracts with other factions and even branches in other faction’s territory, you can also call for help by the TU, be it diplomatically help to establish trade routes or military help to defend your property.
     
    Companies in the Union:

    Companies with a friendly relation to the Union:
    (having a branch/multiple branches in TU territory)

    News
     
    Public Service Announcements
    We will provide Public Service Announcements for each administrative level, in our forum (once it is released) and on in game bulletin-boards.
     
    Newspaper
    We will provide a nation-wide newspaper, published by opinion independent journalists (I hope this makes sense, what I mean is that they will get a salary from the government, but they will be free to write whatever they want, would I write “opinion-free” it would probably indicate the exact opposite. Terminology is really difficult please help me someone with this). About what the newspaper will report, will depend on the news priority for the nation. It is also possible that there will be more local-oriented newspapers.
     
    Newscast
    We will provide a Newscast with the most important news regarding the Union and the galaxy, such as wars, peace treaties, politics (mostly TU but also galaxy), government decisions, new colonies and sometimes a bit propaganda for example the completion of a new TU Capital ship.
    The newscast will be provided via YouTube and in game functions.
     
     
    Gameplay
     
    PvE
    Exploration
    We will finance exploration missions of different sizes, reaching from single ship missions, to long journey convoys with multiple ships.
    The only we are asking for is, to share your data and discoveries first with us, before you sell it to others.
     
    Mining
    We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined.
     
    We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations)
     
    Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering
    We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city.
    The contracts are split in 3 main categories:
    1. Employee-Contract: We'll pay you a salary and providing the resources for the work, to which we assign you.
    2. Freelancer-Contract: We'll pay you a fixed amount and provide or pay for the used materials.
    3. Company-Contract: These contracts are awarded only to companies and will be negotiated.
    After the completion of the contracts, the created blueprints are passed to the Terran Union.
     
    Trade | Transportation
    We will regular offer escorts to trade posts that are far away from the TU Territory. To participate, a fixed price is estimated, depending on the duration and dangerousness of the journey.
     
    We will also offer missions and long-term contracts, to transport goods and people for us.
     
    Science
    We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation.
    In case of war, a rejected request can lead to a dismissal, depending on the importance of the request and your current research.
    This will be an employment; you will get a salary but your discoveries will belong to the Union.
    We will also offer Freelancer and Company-Contracts, if we need some specific tech to be researched fast.
     
    Maintenance
    We will have a lot of civilian buildings, ships and stations and they must be maintained.
    If you considering such work, we will offer you an employment and a salary.
     
    Other
    As the development of the game is progressing, there will be probably other career branches and as soon as we know it we will offer employments, contracts and missions.
     
     
    PvP
    Mercenaries
    We will offer missions and contracts to people who don't want to join the military, but be prepared this work will be dirty and probably more on the unofficial side of things.
     
    Events
    We will organize different kinds of competitions, for example building competitions in various classes reaching from art, to fighters, and we will probably have dog fights. We are open for suggestions.
     
    Interplanetary Tournaments
    Once a year we will organize a great national tournament, where every citizen of the Union can show his skills.
    The participants will compete in various disciplines, such as building, dog fight, racing, strategy, and so on. The tournament will start in the cities and every citizen can register there. The winner on city level will then compete on the regional level, the winner of this are going on the planetary level and after this we will have the grand final on the national level.
     
    General/Social/RP
     
    Holiday Events
    We will try to organize Events timed and themed to real-life holidays and we will try to get other factions and maybe even the devs on board for this.
     
    Roleplaying
    RP is welcome but not necessary.
    We will try to create events and special areas for roleplaying and we look forward to receive ideas and suggestions from you.
     
     
    Joining the Union
     
    Warning
    If you want a position as high ranking official (Minister, Parliament representative, General and Admiral) you should be aware that this means a lot of work for you and you will probably receive phone calls in the middle of the night, because of some catastrophe or enemy attack.
     
    If you want to be a member of the administration, you should be aware that this means work and you should have some skills in office software. Even after you finished your work you will be a contact person for the citizens of the TU.
     
    If you want a position in the military, you should be aware that this means discipline and to follow orders. If an officer ordering you to jump, you will jump and not ask why. You will us also tell fixed times in which you are online and at least half this time you are on duty; in the other half you can do what you want. Next topic is that you've committed yourself, just leaving is desert and will have consequences, but you aren't bound forever. The Contract will have a runtime of 3 months, 10 deaths on duty or 50 dead enemies. I know this whole thing sounds not really good, but here is the good part, you will get a very generous salary and we will take good care of you.
     
    The above mentioned jobs are 18+ exceptions considered on case by case basis.
     
    Ranks
    (currently available. with time it will be more | To pay taxes and to follow the law, are duties for all ranks)
    Citizen: Your only duties are to pay taxes and to follow the law, otherwise your freedom is boundless and well protected by military and law enforcement.
    Government employed: You are an employee of the faction and as such you get a salary and you have in some cases access to the resources of the faction, but your work will belong to the faction.
    Soldier: Pretty good description above in the warning.
     
    Who we accept
    We are a Nation we accept all as long as they follow the law.
     
    How to join
    If you want to join, simply leave a post that says that you wanna join and we will contact you. (this method will probably change later)
     
     
    At the moment we are searching for a capable artist for emblems and pictures for the description, if someone feels like "I want to help" please send a PM to Darius Sanguna

    We will provide Public Service Announcements for each administrative level, in our forum (once it is released) and on in game bulletin-boards.
     
    Newspaper
    We will provide a nation-wide newspaper, published by opinion independent journalists (I hope this makes sense, what I mean is that they will get a salary from the government, but they will be free to write whatever they want, would I write “opinion-free” it would probably indicate the exact opposite. Terminology is really difficult please help me someone with this). About what the newspaper will report, will depend on the news priority for the nation. It is also possible that there will be more local-oriented newspapers.
     
    Newscast
    We will provide a Newscast with the most important news regarding the Union and the galaxy, such as wars, peace treaties, politics (mostly TU but also galaxy), government decisions, new colonies and sometimes a bit propaganda for example the completion of a new TU Capital ship.

    Gameplay
     
    PvE
    Exploration
    We will finance exploration missions of different sizes, reaching from single ship missions, to long journey convoys with multiple ships.
    The only we are asking for is, to share your data and discoveries first with us, before you sell it to others.
     
    Mining
    We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined.
     
    We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations)
     
    Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering
    We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city.
    The contracts are split in 3 main categories:
    1. Employee-Contract: We'll pay you a salary and providing the resources for the work, to which we assign you.
    2. Freelancer-Contract: We'll pay you a fixed amount and provide or pay for the used materials.
    3. Company-Contract: These contracts are awarded only to companies and will be negotiated.
    After the completion of the contracts, the created blueprints are passed to the Terran Union.
     
    Trade | Transportation
    We will regular offer escorts to trade posts that are far away from the TU Territory. To participate, a fixed price is estimated, depending on the duration and dangerousness of the journey.
     
    We will also offer missions and long-term contracts, to transport goods and people for us.
     
    Science
    We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation.
    In case of war, a rejected request can lead to a dismissal, depending on the importance of the request and your current research.
    This will be an employment; you will get a salary but your discoveries will belong to the Union.
    We will also offer Freelancer and Company-Contracts, if we need some specific tech to be researched fast.
     
    Maintenance
    We will have a lot of civilian buildings, ships and stations and they must be maintained.
    If you considering such work, we will offer you an employment and a salary.
     
    Other

    PvP
    Mercenaries
    We will offer missions and contracts to people who don't want to join the military, but be prepared this work will be dirty and probably more on the unofficial side of things.
     
    Events
    We will organize different kinds of competitions, for example building competitions in various classes reaching from art, to fighters, and we will probably have dog fights. We are open for suggestions.
     
    Interplanetary Tournaments
    Once a year we will organize a great national tournament, where every citizen of the Union can show his skills.
    The participants will compete in various disciplines, such as building, dog fight, racing, strategy, and so on. The tournament will start in the cities and every citizen can register there. The winner on city level will then compete on the regional level, the winner of this are going on the planetary level and after this we will have the grand final on the national level.
     
    General/Social/RP
     
    Holiday Events
    We will try to organize Events timed and themed to real-life holidays and we will try to get other factions and maybe even the devs on board for this.
     
    Roleplaying
    RP is welcome but not necessary.
    We will try to create events and special areas for roleplaying and we look forward to receive ideas and suggestions from you.
     
     
    Joining the Union
     
    Warning
    If you want a position as high ranking official (Minister, Parliament representative, General and Admiral) you should be aware that this means a lot of work for you and you will probably receive phone calls in the middle of the night, because of some catastrophe or enemy attack.
     
    If you want to be a member of the administration, you should be aware that this means work and you should have some skills in office software. Even after you finished your work you will be a contact person for the citizens of the TU.
     
    If you want a position in the military, you should be aware that this means discipline and to follow orders. If an officer ordering you to jump, you will jump and not ask why. You will us also tell fixed times in which you are online and at least half this time you are on duty; in the other half you can do what you want. Next topic is that you've committed yourself, just leaving is desert and will have consequences, but you aren't bound forever. The Contract will have a runtime of 3 months, 10 deaths on duty or 50 dead enemies. I know this whole thing sounds not really good, but here is the good part, you will get a very generous salary and we will take good care of you.
     
    The above mentioned jobs are 18+ exceptions considered on case by case basis.
     
    Ranks
    (currently available. with time it will be more | To pay taxes and to follow the law, are duties for all ranks)
    Citizen: Your only duties are to pay taxes and to follow the law, otherwise your freedom is boundless and well protected by military and law enforcement.
    Government employed: You are an employee of the faction and as such you get a salary and you have in some cases access to the resources of the faction, but your work will belong to the faction.
    Soldier: Pretty good description above in the warning.
     
    Who we accept
    We are a Nation we accept all as long as they follow the law.
     
    How to join

    Darius Sanguna got a reaction from CyberOlaf in Terran Union [TU] (PvPvE, recruiting)   
    The only thing i can do momentarly is, to make an excel-table with names of people which want to join and remain in touch with these, because by now there are simply no mechanics for factions. But no worrys i will make an excel-table, let me just finish the description first, so that you are perfectly aware in what you get involved.
    To give you guys a taste of what i mean, if i ordering a soldier i want to hear "yes, sir, yes, its a pleasure for me to jump of this building" and nothing else. Such things must be in the description before someone blindly volunteered. And don't worry this was an example thats only apply to the military branch ^^
     
    but for now you could say me as what you want to join, as simple Citizen or something else?
     
    Edit1: and please excuse that its taking so long but its a tedious job and the translation on the fly while i creating the description isn't it making better
     
    Edit2: and than the ideas that come to me while i write "oh that could i make too" and "that would be really cool to include" take for example the gameplay section this wasn't planned, i included it while i was working on the description.

    Gameplay
     
    PvE
    Exploration

    We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined.
     
    We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations)
     
    Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering
    We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city.

    Science
    We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation.
    In case of war, a rejected request can lead to a dismissal, depending on the importance of the request and your current research.
    This will be an employment; you will get a salary but your discoveries will belong to the Union.
    We will also offer Freelancer and Company-Contracts, if we need some specific tech to be researched fast.

    Joining the Union
     
    Warning
    If you want a position as high ranking official (Minister, Parliament representative, General and Admiral) you should be aware that this means a lot of work for you and you will probably receive phone calls in the middle of the night, because of some catastrophe or enemy attack.
     
    If you want to be a member of the administration, you should be aware that this means work and you should have some skills in office software. Even after you finished your work you will be a contact person for the citizens of the TU.
     
    If you want a position in the military, you should be aware that this means discipline and to follow orders. If an officer ordering you to jump, you will jump and not ask why. You will us also tell fixed times in which you are online and at least half this time you are on duty; in the other half you can do what you want. Next topic is that you've committed yourself, just leaving is desert and will have consequences, but you aren't bound forever. The Contract will have a runtime of 3 months, 10 deaths on duty or 50 dead enemies. I know this whole thing sounds not really good, but here is the good part, you will get a very generous salary and we will take good care of you.

    We will provide a nation-wide newspaper, published by opinion independent journalists (I hope this makes sense, what I mean is that they will get a salary from the government, but they will be free to write whatever they want, would I write “opinion-free” it would probably indicate the exact opposite. Terminology is really difficult please help me someone with this). About what the newspaper will report, will depend on the news priority for the nation. It is also possible that there will be more local-oriented newspapers.

    Mining
    We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined.
     
    We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations)
     
    Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering
    We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city.

    We will also offer missions and long-term contracts, to transport goods and people for us.
     
    Science
    We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation.

    Many many thanks for this amusing thread i laugh heartly.

    First off thank you for clearifying how afraid you all are and don't tell me otherwise, because if it wouldn't be that way you wouldn't care.
     
    Second thank you for narrowing down our list of suspected spies.
     
    Third and last, please don't think that you did anything just because Neo and Astro got a bit emotional, also don't credit yourself for the creation of the charter which is already under construction for quite a while.
     
    And speaking of caring, for someone who claims to not care you seem to care quite a lot and also for stuff that isn't really your business, that seems quite interesting.
    But it doesn't really matter i for my part just enjoy watching this overly toxic and paranoid "community" and laugh my ass off.

    We will provide Public Service Announcements for each administrative level, in our forum (once it is released) and on in game bulletin-boards.
     
    Newspaper
    We will provide a nation-wide newspaper, published by opinion independent journalists (I hope this makes sense, what I mean is that they will get a salary from the government, but they will be free to write whatever they want, would I write “opinion-free” it would probably indicate the exact opposite. Terminology is really difficult please help me someone with this). About what the newspaper will report, will depend on the news priority for the nation. It is also possible that there will be more local-oriented newspapers.
     
    Newscast
    We will provide a Newscast with the most important news regarding the Union and the galaxy, such as wars, peace treaties, politics (mostly TU but also galaxy), government decisions, new colonies and sometimes a bit propaganda for example the completion of a new TU Capital ship.

    Gameplay
     
    PvE
    Exploration
    We will finance exploration missions of different sizes, reaching from single ship missions, to long journey convoys with multiple ships.
    The only we are asking for is, to share your data and discoveries first with us, before you sell it to others.
     
    Mining
    We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined.
     
    We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations)
     
    Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering
    We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city.
    The contracts are split in 3 main categories:
    1. Employee-Contract: We'll pay you a salary and providing the resources for the work, to which we assign you.
    2. Freelancer-Contract: We'll pay you a fixed amount and provide or pay for the used materials.
    3. Company-Contract: These contracts are awarded only to companies and will be negotiated.
    After the completion of the contracts, the created blueprints are passed to the Terran Union.
     
    Trade | Transportation
    We will regular offer escorts to trade posts that are far away from the TU Territory. To participate, a fixed price is estimated, depending on the duration and dangerousness of the journey.
     
    We will also offer missions and long-term contracts, to transport goods and people for us.
     
    Science
    We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation.
    In case of war, a rejected request can lead to a dismissal, depending on the importance of the request and your current research.
    This will be an employment; you will get a salary but your discoveries will belong to the Union.
    We will also offer Freelancer and Company-Contracts, if we need some specific tech to be researched fast.
     
    Maintenance
    We will have a lot of civilian buildings, ships and stations and they must be maintained.
    If you considering such work, we will offer you an employment and a salary.
     
    Other
    As the development of the game is progressing, there will be probably other career branches and as soon as we know it we will offer employments, contracts and missions.
     
     
    PvP
    Mercenaries
    We will offer missions and contracts to people who don't want to join the military, but be prepared this work will be dirty and probably more on the unofficial side of things.
     
    Events
    We will organize different kinds of competitions, for example building competitions in various classes reaching from art, to fighters, and we will probably have dog fights. We are open for suggestions.
     
    Interplanetary Tournaments
    Once a year we will organize a great national tournament, where every citizen of the Union can show his skills.
    The participants will compete in various disciplines, such as building, dog fight, racing, strategy, and so on. The tournament will start in the cities and every citizen can register there. The winner on city level will then compete on the regional level, the winner of this are going on the planetary level and after this we will have the grand final on the national level.
     
    General/Social/RP
     
    Holiday Events
    We will try to organize Events timed and themed to real-life holidays and we will try to get other factions and maybe even the devs on board for this.
     
    Roleplaying
    RP is welcome but not necessary.
    We will try to create events and special areas for roleplaying and we look forward to receive ideas and suggestions from you.
     
     
    Joining the Union
     
    Warning
    If you want a position as high ranking official (Minister, Parliament representative, General and Admiral) you should be aware that this means a lot of work for you and you will probably receive phone calls in the middle of the night, because of some catastrophe or enemy attack.
     
    If you want to be a member of the administration, you should be aware that this means work and you should have some skills in office software. Even after you finished your work you will be a contact person for the citizens of the TU.
     
    If you want a position in the military, you should be aware that this means discipline and to follow orders. If an officer ordering you to jump, you will jump and not ask why. You will us also tell fixed times in which you are online and at least half this time you are on duty; in the other half you can do what you want. Next topic is that you've committed yourself, just leaving is desert and will have consequences, but you aren't bound forever. The Contract will have a runtime of 3 months, 10 deaths on duty or 50 dead enemies. I know this whole thing sounds not really good, but here is the good part, you will get a very generous salary and we will take good care of you.
     
    The above mentioned jobs are 18+ exceptions considered on case by case basis.
     
    Ranks
    (currently available. with time it will be more | To pay taxes and to follow the law, are duties for all ranks)
    Citizen: Your only duties are to pay taxes and to follow the law, otherwise your freedom is boundless and well protected by military and law enforcement.
    Government employed: You are an employee of the faction and as such you get a salary and you have in some cases access to the resources of the faction, but your work will belong to the faction.
    Soldier: Pretty good description above in the warning.
     
    Who we accept
    We are a Nation we accept all as long as they follow the law.
     
    How to join
    If you want to join, simply leave a post that says that you wanna join and we will contact you. (this method will probably change later)

    It isn't premature at all, because we certainly need the time to develop everything, set up our structures, create the the tools we need, until the game launches. The Terran Union is no less ambitious than Dual Universe itself. What we want to create is something that is normally provided by the developers of a game, a nation within the game.
     
    When the devs implent these nations, they normally provide services to the players so that they can do what they want to do. But Dual Universe won't have this kind of dev created nations, so the TU is there to take this place, but because it isn't supported by the devs and the game mechanics we need not only to plan the services we want to provide, but also the means to be able to provide this services and to support our structure. This means a lot of bureaucracy and this needs a lot of planning. Even with our most optimistic estimations currently we come at a needed member count of 1000, alone to run the complete government. Not to mention the time that we will need to set everything up and get running.

    Newspaper
    We will provide a nation-wide newspaper, published by opinion independent journalists (I hope this makes sense, what I mean is that they will get a salary from the government, but they will be free to write whatever they want, would I write “opinion-free” it would probably indicate the exact opposite. Terminology is really difficult please help me someone with this). About what the newspaper will report, will depend on the news priority for the nation.

    Gameplay
     
    PvE
    Exploration

    The only we are asking for is, to share your data and discoveries first with us, before you sell it to others.
     
    Mining
    We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined.
     
    We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations)
     
    Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering
    We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city.

    We will also offer missions and long-term contracts, to transport goods and people for us.
     
    Science
    We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation.
    In case of war, a rejected request can lead to a dismissal, depending on the importance of the request and your current research.
    This will be an employment; you will get a salary but your discoveries will belong to the Union.
    We will also offer Freelancer and Company-Contracts, if we need some specific tech to be researched fast.

    General/Social/RP
     
    Holiday Events
    We will try to organize Events timed and themed to real-life holidays and we will try to get other factions and maybe even the devs on board for this.
     
    Roleplaying

    We will try to create events and special areas for roleplaying and we look forward to receive ideas and suggestions from you.
     
     
    Joining the Union
     
    Warning
    If you want a position as high ranking official (Minister, Parliament representative, General and Admiral) you should be aware that this means a lot of work for you and you will probably receive phone calls in the middle of the night, because of some catastrophe or enemy attack.
     
    If you want to be a member of the administration, you should be aware that this means work and you should have some skills in office software. Even after you finished your work you will be a contact person for the citizens of the TU.
     
    If you want a position in the military, you should be aware that this means discipline and to follow orders. If an officer ordering you to jump, you will jump and not ask why.

Next topic is that you've committed yourself, just leaving is desert and will have consequences, but you aren't bound forever. The Contract will have a runtime of 3 months, 10 deaths on duty or 50 dead enemies.

    Ranks
    (currently available. with time it will be more | To pay taxes and to follow the law, are duties for all ranks)

    Darius Sanguna got a reaction from Vyz Ejstu in Low-Profile Turrets   
    Maybe foldable/retractable turrets could also be a possibility, so in their inactive mode they would have a low profile fit near or maybe even partially in the hull and in active mode high profile for a maximal field of fire.

    Greetings and best wishes from the Terran Union.
     
    Just a little hint, while i agree with your view on weapons in real life, i think that it is not the best idea to take away personal weapons in a game where you could encounter hostile individuals at any given time outside of secure zones. Also it might not even be enforceable with the given game mechanics, except you want to kill weapon owners right where they stand, if you even can see whether they have a weapon or not.
     
    @Cybrex
    This kind of structure has various reasons/advantages. For example lets assume you want to provide secure areas, so first off you need to protect it against threats from the outside (military), next you need common rules (laws) and somone to enforce these rules (police). Okay now something happens where it isn't quite if it was against the rules or not, so you need someone to decide about it (judges). Then there happens something that isn't covered by the rules, but it needs to be covered because someone got hurt by something that someone else did/not did, so we need someone who makes new rules (legislative).
     
    So that were the basics, of course you need also administration for that stuff, who makes what when and all this, also these people that serve the community/society must be supplied so that they can do their jobs. The structure and organization is here quite important, because if you have high numbers in members and just let everyone roam totally free and they can do whatever they want whenever they want you end up with a huge mess in which nobody has an overview anymore. This will lead evantually into the collapse of the secure area that you wanted in the first place.
     
    One advantage of this kind of structure is that you can have specialists, while it might be not impossible with the BOO system it is much harder to achieve with it, simply because your system is more or less based on the survival of the fittest/strongest. This means everyone in BOO must be at least to a certain degree be a jack of all trades, to be able to survive in this environment. In opposite to this we have the governmental system, there you can train and specialize in a secure environment, without worrying that you might be attacked or ripped off, which results almost automatically in a higher skill level in a certain area, because there is no necessity for certain skills that are needed in the BOO system.
    Let us now assume a contest between the BOO system and the governmental system, while the BOO people might deliver an overall mediocre result, the people out of the governmental system will deliver an excellent in their fields of expertise.
     
    Another advantage is that it is for you as group much easier to achieve great things, like stargates, capital ships and great monuments to honor the honeybadger , simply because the structure is already there.
     
    So thats it for now hope i could help you to understand it a bit better Cybrex

    Ministries

    Newspaper
    We will provide a nation-wide newspaper, published by opinion independent journalists (I hope this makes sense, what I mean is that they will get a salary from the government, but they will be free to write whatever they want, would I write “opinion-free” it would probably indicate the exact opposite. Terminology is really difficult please help me someone with this). About what the newspaper will report, will depend on the news priority for the nation. It is also possible that there will be more local-oriented newspapers.
     
    Newscast
    We will provide a Newscast with the most important news regarding the Union and the galaxy, such as wars, peace treaties, politics (mostly TU but also galaxy), government decisions, new colonies and sometimes a bit propaganda for example the completion of a new TU Capital ship.

    Gameplay
     
    PvE
    Exploration
    We will finance exploration missions of different sizes, reaching from single ship missions, to long journey convoys with multiple ships.
    The only we are asking for is, to share your data and discoveries first with us, before you sell it to others.
     
    Mining
    We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined.
     
    We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations)
     
    Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering
    We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city.
    The contracts are split in 3 main categories:
    1. Employee-Contract: We'll pay you a salary and providing the resources for the work, to which we assign you.
    2. Freelancer-Contract: We'll pay you a fixed amount and provide or pay for the used materials.
    3. Company-Contract: These contracts are awarded only to companies and will be negotiated.
    After the completion of the contracts, the created blueprints are passed to the Terran Union.
     
    Trade | Transportation
    We will regular offer escorts to trade posts that are far away from the TU Territory. To participate, a fixed price is estimated, depending on the duration and dangerousness of the journey.
     
    We will also offer missions and long-term contracts, to transport goods and people for us.
     
    Science
    We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation.
    In case of war, a rejected request can lead to a dismissal, depending on the importance of the request and your current research.
    This will be an employment; you will get a salary but your discoveries will belong to the Union.
    We will also offer Freelancer and Company-Contracts, if we need some specific tech to be researched fast.
     
    Maintenance
    We will have a lot of civilian buildings, ships and stations and they must be maintained.
    If you considering such work, we will offer you an employment and a salary.

    PvP
    Mercenaries
    We will offer missions and contracts to people who don't want to join the military, but be prepared this work will be dirty and probably more on the unofficial side of things.
     
    Events
    We will organize different kinds of competitions, for example building competitions in various classes reaching from art, to fighters, and we will probably have dog fights. We are open for suggestions.
     
    Interplanetary Tournaments
    Once a year we will organize a great national tournament, where every citizen of the Union can show his skills.
    The participants will compete in various disciplines, such as building, dog fight, racing, strategy, and so on. The tournament will start in the cities and every citizen can register there. The winner on city level will then compete on the regional level, the winner of this are going on the planetary level and after this we will have the grand final on the national level.
     
    General/Social/RP
     
    Holiday Events
    We will try to organize Events timed and themed to real-life holidays and we will try to get other factions and maybe even the devs on board for this.
     
    Roleplaying
    RP is welcome but not necessary.
    We will try to create events and special areas for roleplaying and we look forward to receive ideas and suggestions from you.
     
     
    Joining the Union
     
    Warning
    If you want a position as high ranking official (Minister, Parliament representative, General and Admiral) you should be aware that this means a lot of work for you and you will probably receive phone calls in the middle of the night, because of some catastrophe or enemy attack.
     
    If you want to be a member of the administration, you should be aware that this means work and you should have some skills in office software. Even after you finished your work you will be a contact person for the citizens of the TU.
     
    If you want a position in the military, you should be aware that this means discipline and to follow orders. If an officer ordering you to jump, you will jump and not ask why. You will us also tell fixed times in which you are online and at least half this time you are on duty; in the other half you can do what you want. Next topic is that you've committed yourself, just leaving is desert and will have consequences, but you aren't bound forever. The Contract will have a runtime of 3 months, 10 deaths on duty or 50 dead enemies.

    Version 3.4.5
  25. Like
    Darius Sanguna got a reaction from Astrophil in I propose: The Free Democratic Republic (recruiting, and in search of founders and leaders)   
    Greetings and best wishes from the Terran Union.
     
    Just a little hint, while i agree with your view on weapons in real life, i think that it is not the best idea to take away personal weapons in a game where you could encounter hostile individuals at any given time outside of secure zones. Also it might not even be enforceable with the given game mechanics, except you want to kill weapon owners right where they stand, if you even can see whether they have a weapon or not.
     
    @Cybrex
    This kind of structure has various reasons/advantages. For example lets assume you want to provide secure areas, so first off you need to protect it against threats from the outside (military), next you need common rules (laws) and somone to enforce these rules (police). Okay now something happens where it isn't quite if it was against the rules or not, so you need someone to decide about it (judges). Then there happens something that isn't covered by the rules, but it needs to be covered because someone got hurt by something that someone else did/not did, so we need someone who makes new rules (legislative).
     
    So that were the basics, of course you need also administration for that stuff, who makes what when and all this, also these people that serve the community/society must be supplied so that they can do their jobs. The structure and organization is here quite important, because if you have high numbers in members and just let everyone roam totally free and they can do whatever they want whenever they want you end up with a huge mess in which nobody has an overview anymore. This will lead evantually into the collapse of the secure area that you wanted in the first place.
     
    One advantage of this kind of structure is that you can have specialists, while it might be not impossible with the BOO system it is much harder to achieve with it, simply because your system is more or less based on the survival of the fittest/strongest. This means everyone in BOO must be at least to a certain degree be a jack of all trades, to be able to survive in this environment. In opposite to this we have the governmental system, there you can train and specialize in a secure environment, without worrying that you might be attacked or ripped off, which results almost automatically in a higher skill level in a certain area, because there is no necessity for certain skills that are needed in the BOO system.
    Let us now assume a contest between the BOO system and the governmental system, while the BOO people might deliver an overall mediocre result, the people out of the governmental system will deliver an excellent in their fields of expertise.
     
    Another advantage is that it is for you as group much easier to achieve great things, like stargates, capital ships and great monuments to honor the honeybadger , simply because the structure is already there.
     
    So thats it for now hope i could help you to understand it a bit better Cybrex
