  1. You can also highlight part of a post and a "Quote selection" button will appear.
  2. Physics like that would require too many resources for an MMO. Even the hardware requirements for that single player game in the video are rather high. So it couldn't scale to a single shard game world.
  3. Not sure what you mean here but once you have access that includes all future alpha and beta stages.
  4. Eve has some interesting data about it's economy: https://www.eveonline.com/article/pxf0wt/monthly-economic-report-august-2019 I don't think there is such a simple solution, but as long as it can be made somewhat stable it should be fine. I would think fewer faucets would be easier to control.
  5. Joining an org is a good way to get help learning the ropes. Also get authorized on the DU discord server and you can collaborate with the rest of the Lua code monkeys. 😄
  6. I would like it if animations and things were added to make it more believable, like show a stream of nanobots or something leaving and returning when mining or deploying materials, and a visible jetpack.
  7. Immersion doesn't equal realism though. DU is a sci fi fantasy game, so realism isn't a priority. You have to accept the nanotech "magic" explained in the lore, like in any other mmorpg.
  8. I think it will be pretty basic, we'll have the complete safe zones, and everything else open. Anyone is a potential threat. As long as new players understand this, they can act accordingly. We just need the option to tag individuals and orgs as friend or foe or default neutral. Security status doesn't work without infallible npc police and security zones. In total unsecure area you need to be able to aggro first to defend, otherwise the attacker can just bide their time knowing that if you attack first you get the security status hit. And a reputation system mechanic would be very abusable. A community/word-of-mouth reputation could be more reliable anyways since you'll know who is giving the reputation and can decide if you trust them.
  9. Hey, that was a good podcast
  10. Not sure if that would be a cookies/cache thing in which you could clear those or open a private browser window or a different browser to create account. Otherwise you may need to email support@novaquark.com to see if they can do something.
  11. A less strict option would be to allow any ship but require the org stripes/colors be added.
  12. I think that is planned so ships can be sold on a market. Hopefully will save Lua and configs as well.
  13. That would be nice, I wish my apartments were free after a year of living there, or my Internet service free after a year of using it.
  14. I remember a past survey on here that showed around half plan to play DU solo, at least for a time. There is something appealing about being a Han Solo type, just taking care of yourself and adventuring. It is more interesting encountering real players as a solo player than NPCs in a single player game. In Eve I was a member of orgs, part of a huge alliance, and solo played a bit, all were enjoyable.
  15. Is using several cores really a problem? And the number needed depends on the size of the core. I believe the ability to align cores is planned, which would make it easier. Or with adequate terraforming tools, you could just use terrain voxels to make roads.
