  1. FYI, While the above page states that OS 8 is a non-starter, I have 3 computers that run DU quite well. Two of them run windows 10. The other is running windows 8.1 Pro on a i7-4790 4GHz.
  2. 30 second ban for advocating bans... /grin. But yup, welcome @NQ-Naerais!
  3. This is just categorically untrue. A donation is when you give something with no REQUIREMENT of getting something in return. Merriam Websters defines it as: Donation: noun : something (such as money, food, clothes, etc.) that you give in order to help a person or organization. When you donate money to a kick-starter you can have the hope of getting something in return, and in many cases you do, but there is no legal requirement.
  4. You are not buying a game. You are donating money to help in developing a game that does not exist yet. As a perk for that donation, you occasionally get to test during certain stages of that development process. There is no refund for "here have some money to develop." If you want a stable game, with refunds if you don't like it, wait for release.
  5. This game is not Eve and it has a very large community of people for whom the 'fun factor' is creating, not destroying. That fact alone stands a very big chance of making this game very different. Nothing I have stated here is buried under the NDA. The backer rewards include information about sanctuary areas, as does the public non-NDA Trello account.
  6. no. I mean that there will be sanctuary areas in this game where PvP will not be allowed. It has been stated implicitly. In fact there used to be a 3rd moon in orbit of Alioth called a sanctuary moon. It was "temporarily" removed. Just because you would, doesn't mean I would. If I am in an Org with lots of people, and we declare that everyone is safe within our region as long as they act peacefully, then we will likely have a mostly peaceful area. Particularly as we will not be wasting resources on pointless skirmishes, and can apply those resources in keeping the peace.
  7. The question is too vague. Static defense is implicit in this game. Space is a static defense. The time and effort needed to build ships is a static defense. Safe zones will definitely be a static defense. A wall of voxels 16m thick is a static defense. Do I think that there should be automatic unmanned turrets that fire at ships? no.
  8. Amen. There are plenty of reasons to share data from a data center, but I will always prefer to manage my own tools for accessing that data.
  9. voxelating voxciferously.
  10. It will. /smile Frankly since I started playing voxel based building games, I can't look at almost anything in the real world without thinking... "How can I build that in game?"
  11. No one will be able to answer this question here because of the NDA
  12. Oh it will defiantly exist. The real question is how well it grows and persists. Time will tell.

    2 Res Nodes

    One of the perks for higher level funding packages is 2 resurrection nodes. Therefore, it will be possible to have more then one at some point. Probably just after they build in the dying and corpse mechanics.
  14. There is a forth situation. It is called civilization. It is where large groups of people band together, agree to live under a set of rules for the peace and betterment of all. This will also exist in Dual Universe.
  15. I have a completely different opinion then Lethys. I believe that form IS function. Right now in the game, A cube is a bad design, because front surface area effects speed. the fastest ships are long thin tubes. But even that is flawed, because adjusters work better the further out from the center they are. So it is a balancing act between turning, lift loss during turning (in atmo), speed etc. Aside from all of that. There is a "wow" factor to consider. A well organized squadron of sleek looking ships is going to have a reputation factor attached to it. There will even be some who are willing to trade a small amount of performance for a bit of glitz. Some won't of course, but only time will tell how that plays out. I strongly believe that there will not be one PERFECT ship in this game, but rather many different ships with different focus attributes.
