    Warden got a reaction from Mod-Meldrik in Howdy, New Follower to DU   
    Greetings and welcome.
     
    I chuckled a bit at "getting nerdy breeding dinos" part. I played ARK a bit, but never really got into it. Ironically due to Dinos, I think. In loose comparison, I had more fun playing Conan Exiles. The games might not be comparable much in greater detail, but survival sandbox stuff is survial sandbox stuff, eh?
     
    As you already assume(d), I think there will be lots of opportunities to "get nerdy" in DU, maybe not solely regarding ships.

    Although, I agree with ShioriStein. The animation for this robot is reflective of its size. The way it jerks up and down is indicative of the tonne(s) of metal those mechanical limbs are lifting and easing with every move. 
     
    This small pet here moves faster and I dear, say in a 'smoother' fashion, as befits its small size: 
     
     
    Yes, a robot with silky movement animations will be nice. There is still one more pet in this set as shown in the picture here: 
     
     
     
    And we have heard nothing of these other pets (the humanoid is one nice looking pet  )
     
     
     
    We might get more pets. We might not. To me, the animations are quite 'cute' as they are. Appreciation of aesthetics varies from person to person, something I appreciate as well. You can ask NQ for an eight legged bot. Just remember, it has to look sci-fi and functional. The aesthetics of the bots so far favour a sci-fi, utilitarian look. Developing something like a spider has to appeal to the larger user base too. They can't make cosmetics to suit the demands of individual requests.
     
    Cheers.

    Warden reacted to Boehm in Howdy, New Follower to DU   
    Hello,
    I'm known as Boehm by most people of whom I have played video games with. I've recently found this game this past week, and did 4 hours of research on it just last night. I've been looking for a replacement for the game, Ark: Survival Evolve. Ark: SE was a game i spent nearly 3k hours on, and played with the same tribe for that amt of time. We reached the Alpha title on multiple servers before, and I just loved the mechanics of war, building, and breeding Dino's. I think I mainly felled in love with it cause I could get really nerdy with breeding dinos, I.E; our tribe had the best Quetzals bloodline and Rex Bloodline on our server because of the time I spent on breeding and recording all the generations of breeds I had worked on. 
    Wild Card, the Development team for that game, started putting in updates that became very bitter in my mouth, and showed me that they did not care about their old players anymore, so I stopped playing the game along with my Tribe mates, whom I spent 3 years playing with. 
    So, I look forward to playing this game, have a couple friends in mind that i want to invite to help me with an idea I have that will allow us to be a bit nerdy again, but not for breeding, but for making very thought out ships for others to use and buy from. 
    My occupation is in the US Marine Corps in Ground Electronics Maintainer as my MOS, I have a friend who is a Engineer who may be joining me in this journey. So I don't see why we couldn't succeed at making potentially good ships that are flexible to the needs of the buyers. 
     
    I hope this game comes true to it's promises!
    Thanks.

    Warden reacted to yamamushi in If you are spamming DU, Cut that crap out now   
    I won't get into all of it right now, as I have dealt with the situation as delicately as possible to try and undo the damage, but it appears that not only was the community discord a target of spammers (people sending private messages to everyone in the user list to try and recruit for their org) but that several other communities were targeted as well. That all culminated in discussions about the game being banned in various places, someone trying to dox me, and a slew of other issues I've tried to fix today. Someone went so far as to accuse me of being JC himself even. 
     
    I'm not going to drop names here now, you know who you are, but if I find out you are continuing the spamming and harassing other communities about Dual Universe, I will definitely report it and let NovaQuark deal with the situation. I've heard reports of everything from sending mass private messages to people, to joining other discords and spamming links to the game over and over, to someone joining voice chats to spam the game and harass people.
     
    One person even had the audacity to go into discords and tell everyone they were the creator of Dual Universe and proceed to spam the game over and over. 
     
    You are doing anyone any favors by spamming the game, and you are doing harm to DU's name by doing it. It's not helping any of us, and it certainly isn't helping your own reputation for doing it. 
     
    99.999% of org's out there aren't doing it, but one or two org's in specific are, and they are going to ruin it for the rest of us if they keep it up. Nobody should be encouraging that type of behavior. 
     
    I'm posting this here in the hopes that it will keep others from attempting to do the same thing, and so that the parties responsible know what their actions did.

    Warden got a reaction from CyberCrunch in Create a new forum section for player factions and organizations   
    Less of a gameplay, more of a forum idea.
     
    We currently have both player and organization introductions in one category.
     
    I suggest that we (well, mods / admins that is) create a new category for player organizations, alliances, etc. This may be more useful sooner or later in my book and may eventually make finding them easier. It also looks a bit better.
     
    Of course the sooner this would be considered and implemented, the less work you have later on as you move threads over.
     
     
     
    If we assume people are for this idea, how could one execute it as we have threads in the category already?
     
    Perhaps users are allowed to move their own threads between categories. If that's not yet possible (I didn't try so far) or not intended then mods could move threads upon request. There aren't that many organizations yet so that should also not be too much of a hassle.

    A few thoughts, on another note
     

     
    Now, with that mentioned:
     
    We still look for patient, interested people who don't mind a focus on forum work more-so than gaming until DU becomes more feasible. You should also be willing to invest a bit of time and work into the organization, instead of being a passive partaker in events. Ideally we find those possibly fitting for management positions or tasks in the long run.
     
    If you are interested...
     
    post in here or ideally send a private message on the organization hub to me (link: https://community.dualthegame.com/) and compose a new private message @Warden  
    I check them daily. You can also try to send a message here in the forum, but with limited space, it is not advised. Once you express your interest, we'll take it from there and see if it fits.
     
     
     

     
     
     
    On another note, the »promotional website went through a few changes.
     
    - No more Star Citizen logos as we are not active there
    - ©-Date updated
    - Outdated SC news snippet replaced with more relevant DU post on home page
    - SC contact details greyed out on contact page
    - Header tweaked (sub-title moved left, additional page called "Summary" added, menus numbered)
    - "Construction site" pictures added to "4) Summary" as it is a W I P
    "4) Summary" will contain the most relevant information without the prior fluff - "real talk", if you want

    I just had an idea.
     
    Something you could do relatively early is work on more branding.
     
     For example or specifically, in this forum. Let's look at your OP, for example:
     
    It's short and to the point, but also lacking multimedia wise. Kind of "bare bones". It's not necessarily bad or wrong, but on the other hand people react to multimedia differently. Many might still click the link, maybe some will just skip it if it seems "bland" for them (just assuming, can't look into people's heads but different people, different reactions or lack thereof).
     
    Or, in other words, it could be more "memorable" with more "branding".
     
    E.g. this quote above could turn into something more visualized, like:
     

     
     
     
    [Some accompanying text or description after the video or between the logo and the video]
     
     
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     
    I also suggest embedding videos directly, it's easier for some people to click or view the content compared to adding one layer of access (having to click the link, as trivial as it might sound). On the plus side, you immediately have visual stimuli of the video thumbnail in your thread and can even generate attention through it immediately, opposed to a simple link.
     
    You can embed videos by using the "full" YT link - the forum software usually does the rest then. Shortened links may not be automatically converted, I think. Unless that was a conscious choice to not "embed" it, of course.
     
    Hope it helps. Branding or formatting can be a vital step in gaining traction (which doesn't necessarily mean you have or want to become a big player, but a bit of reach never hurts).

    That's not bad / rather good. Sometimes the spark of passion can be all you need to invest time into something and just DU (heh) it, and become better over time. I also say that because I like to think I had a similar "awakening" or "spark" with multimedia content creation about almost a decade ago. And I would not stop, you are on a good track. It'll also be fun as you try out new things that you may or may not stick with! You'll see.
     
     
    Looking forward to it, but depending on what style you want to apply, you might need to invest in certain equipment, unless it's basically "hand-held phone style-recordings". But again, that depends on what you want to go for.

    Hi Warden, 
     
    Firstly thanks a lot for the comment, really appreciate it. I am super super new at making YouTube content, it is honestly something I never really considered doing, but then along comes this amazing game that I discovered and I couldn't help myself xD The plan is to keep making more and more content related to DU news, updates and then once the NDA is lifted and we are on the next stage (Alpha) I will be making a ton of gameplay videos, tutorials and let's play type content. I am really and honestly just doing this out of my love for the game
     
    I am still learning how best to approach making videos, my speech, the tone, the speed, where I take pauses and the pacing. I do agree though I think it could definitely  be a bit faster, any other tips or advice are extremely welcomed.
     
    Becoming known for DU content would be really awesome, but whether or not that happens won't stop me from making more vids, as like i mentioned I am really doing this out of a love for DU.
     
    I can absolutely see myself going to any and all DU events and bringing along a camera for the ride and sharing the experience with people that maybe couldn't make it.
     
    Again, thanks for the comments and please feel free to let me know if I can improve in any way xD 
     
    Cheers man

    Hello!
     
    Interesting design or style (or approach), if you know what I mean. "Upbeat intro", getting attention somewhat up or "pumping", which isn't bad. I like it, in short.
     
    I'm not sure about pacing though. On one hand the pace in that video is good and easy to follow (with non-native English speakers in mind), on the other hand, it could maybe be just a tad ... "faster", maybe? I don't mean hyperactive.
     
    Or maybe that is simply your general style and the pace you feel comfortable with, which would be fine as different content creators have different approaches and styles, in a nutshell. The visual diversity is a big plus in my book, footage isn't too static throughout and I like to think that change of visual scenery helps following and, in addition, it also emphasizes whatever topic is covered at that time, e.g. Arkship pictures as Arkships are introduced or explained.
     
    I would say keep it up and ... who knows? You might be(come) the next known go-to source for DU lore and general info, like some folks are known for covering Star Citizen related content and having made a name for themselves.
     
    And if you ever want cross promotion (in-game or on the forums), hit me up*. Spreading the word free of charge.
     
    Another question: Can you imagine going to certain DU events or visiting their booth in various conventions and whatnot? If so, you might consider using this as another "format" in your YT content and cover events accordingly. Just as possible idea on how to branch out, if visiting and covering certain events would not be a problem for you.
