  1. Unfortunately that is just not how voxels work. The voxel core is a cube of cubes. All any of the tools do is move the corners of those cubes and apply textures to some of them. Voxels without textures applied to them appear as air.
  2. The patch notes indicated that glass was going to stop being frosted now, but I don't think that made it into the patch.
  3. This is extremely unlikely to happen any time this decade. It is my understanding that all flight mechanics, Lua, etc., are calculated and run on the Client computer. That is why no core moves when there isn't a player nearby, because it is the player's computer that handles the actual movement. To change this would first require a major rewrite, and second vastly increase the server side processing load.
  4. and I just discovered that the Flatten Tool is also an overblown bunch of visual noise. "spell effects" need graphics toggles/sliders folks. for some of us (many for this game) this is going to be unplayable. At least when I'm mining I can mostly avoid looking at the screen when the tool is active. I honestly have NO IDEA why anyone would find all that useless flashing and movement appealing. I put tape over most flashing LED lights on stuff like Cable Modems and the like, and I'm not alone. Also for the record the hand and tool also sway way too much.
  5. You have to do this on a dynamic construct (but it will then apply to all constructs you build) it is under settings in the Build helper. Grid Visibility.
  6. Let's be clear here, it is no secret that I have been a HUGE advocate of this game. I love playing it. But I am now, at least partially, on Hiatus until we have the ability to turn off the hand tool graphic effects while in build mode (and frankly the hand and tool themselves would be nice too.) The constantly bobbing hand and gun that takes up a third of the space is bad enough while building, but adding strobing, rippling, distortion causing effects that bleed even further into the build space is absurd. Dear devs, Imagine you're at your desk, you're trying to program, concentrating hard, and someone comes along, sticks his hand over your shoulder and starts waving around a LED strobing nerf gun covering up a substantial portion of your work space. Would you be happy? Please, pretty please, add a checkbox to settings YESTERDAY to turn this obnoxious bit of useless silliness off. I really want to be able to continue building and designing, doing the Voxelmancy that I love so much. Right now, it is impossible for me. Thank you. Tordan
  7. Thank you for doing these threads. They are an excellent idea, and a large step forward in community wide communications.
  8. I agree on all counts. some additional points. 1. wreaks should only spawn when no one is near by, and should never spawn overlapping an existing construct. 2. some wreaks should be spawned in space and tossed towards the planet...
  9. This is my opinion. NQ wants this to be a community game. They want folks to play together and build relationships. We are building relationships... in Discord. We can't build relationships ***In Game*** because the communication tools in game are awful. This is, IMnsHO, the single biggest mistake that NQ has made, and is continuing to make. If they want this to be a community building game, then they need to provide the communication tools to actually build communities. This includes mission terminals, player market terminals, etc but it also includes, threaded chat, tags, filtered customization chat tabs, in game email, ship hailing, and proximity voice. Without these, we are alone in game, and together in Discord.
  10. yeah, 50m is a bit small, at least until collision rendering is real time. If a larger ship falls though another construct, we need more then that to extract the ship.
  11. While exact specs of the game are currently under NDA and can not be discussed here, as a general rule with most games, the first stage installer is just a small file that installs the infrastructure for the game to patch in the rest of the install. It sometimes works to install those sorts of games on One PC and then transfer the installed folder onto another PC and rerun the installer to bypass a long download. That may or may not work for you for many games.
  12. 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.
  13. 30 second ban for advocating bans... /grin. But yup, welcome @NQ-Naerais!
  14. 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.
