  1. Ah, thanks for info. Guess I'll get more RAM and that SSD then.
  2. I used to be able to play this game with very few technical problems. But now when I fly around I get lag which can be lethal in some cases. I looked at the system requirements and the recommended RAM is now 16 GB and GTX 1080 (8 GB). I do have the 16 GB requirements fulfilled but my GPU seems a bit lacking (I have a 1660 which is only 6 GB.) Do you think I should upgrade my computer for a better experience?
  3. One of the most important aspects of a work of science fiction (game or otherwise) is the ability for it to convey a sense of wonder. Wonder...it's a feeling of awakening caused by the expansion of one's awareness of what's possible (paraphrased from Wikipedia.) Does or did Dual Universe ever give you a sense of wonder? To what degree? What could be done to improve the game's ability to convey this feeling? I admit I did get a sense of wonder about building my first ship which was able to just even fly. After being stuck running and/or hovering on the ground for perhaps
  4. Regardless about you feel about Dual Universe as a game, I think some of you (myself included) can also consider it a "tech demo" of sorts (similar to other space games currently in development.) How do you feel about Dual Universe, as it is now, as a "tech demo" of sorts? I think it's a decent tech demo in terms of size and scope. It shows a big universe where you can move around a lot and build at least. The graphics of the voxels are decent. However, there's a lot of bugs that can hinder performance. Also, the planets and the rest of the environments are kinda bland
  5. One of the most important things about a sandbox game - or just about any game, really, is interactivity. To be able to influence the game environment through your actions, and in turn, the ability of the environment to have an effect on you...that is one of the most engaging aspects of games. Do you feel Dual Universe is a very interactive game, currently? What can be done to increase the amount of interactivity in this game? I think Dual Universe is quite interactive, although the degree to which it is can still be improved. While you are able to change yo
  6. Question: Dual Universe is really laggy for me now - it wasn't like this for me before. It has made flying around a pain in the butt. Do you think its time for me to upgrade my computer? I currently have 16 GB RAM with a GTX 1660 Super GPU (6 GB.) Request: I just need someone to test if my surrogate pod is working. - if it is visible in search and accessible to all. It's name is "aliensalmon pod".
  7. I've visited this place and its really cool! Awesome feat of engineering and creativity!
  8. I mean, like saying to others in both serious and joke roleplay that inside your avatar's spacesuit you are of extraterrestrial origin rather than a human?
  9. I've actually played the game for a few months now (and was in this forum for about the same time.) But still, thank you, I appreciate the welcome regardless!
  10. I guess to start off, I didn't know it would really click with me because the game was primarily first person. I had a history of not being able to get into first-person games such as Goldeneye 007 and Elite Dangerous. However, this was balanced with my eagerness to find a good science fiction space MMO to call home. I was envisioning this game would let me explore the universe and encounter people and all sorts of things as well. I also liked the concept because I was into Second Life, a sandbox virtual world that allows building. (I also found out about this game from a Second Li
  11. I played EVE but I couldn't really get into it. Strangely enough, I'm able to get into Dual Universe more. I guess it's the whole "space legs" thing.
  12. Welcome! I also heard about this game from the Second Life community.
  13. I personally enjoyed my time in Dual Universe so far (although I'm currently taking a break) but I'm worried about the size of the playerbase - after all, the community is what makes an MMO! It doesn't seem like people have much faith in the game in the game anymore. I was wondering if there is still hope for this game to survive and thrive. I personally hope it stays for a long time because I like the concept behind the game. If you think this game will die, what went wrong and hope could the devs prevented or be able to fix it?
  14. Yes, I know submitting suggestions is futile, and this may have been discussed already, but what do you think of having gravity guns in this game? I think it would be cool. Should be pretty fun to mess with gravity and spacetime!
