Well, in early days the community page was used for all kinds of news and warfare, it would be nice to have it back also so that organizations can present themselves and for the attached mail box, atleast if we get that back also. Is there a timeline for the return of it?
More events please!The community has been pretty barren right now, nobody is really doing/talking about anything. I know NQ is doing a lot of back end changes (which I totally agree on) , but would it hurt to add a lump of coal to the dying fire? it's not like i'm asking for something super extensive or advanced, just something which takes very little dev time that would keep us entertained for a while, such as: Adding a t4/t5 meganode in PvP space and deliberately leaking the co-ords buffing/nerfing some elements for a limited amount of time, eg reducing weapon range by 200% for a week, or changing the maximum speed in space (and if it's good keep it) turning the shipwreck event/ previous events back on adding a small planet 500-1000+ su (out of warp range) from any other planet, which would be full to the brim with good ores. (idk how long it takes to make planets, but i'm guessing you have a program to generate one)
Let's talk DU events
le_souriceau posted a topic in General DiscussionsI wanted to talk not about any particular, concluded NQ-made events, but more about their overall direction and organization in future. Can we expect?.. 1) Prior anouncement (at least week before start, better - two). 2) Scheduling on week-end. 3) Inclusion of long-term events, where players can meaningfully participate in active stage in duration of several days or even week. 4) Inclusion of more solo/new players friendly events, where they doing more individual goals, not being clearly pitted against groups of veterans. What else do people want? Fire away, we now have CMs that like to read our ideas and feedback ?

Cosmic entities and related events?
Semproser posted a topic in The Gameplay Mechanics AssemblyI'm thinking along the lines of Asteroids, Comets, Meteors, Dust clouds, Random floating things in space (e.g. Proceedurally generated space junk) and Dark matter globs. Anyone know if they are going to be in the game? And whether or not these can interact with planets like huge meteor impact that a city might want to preemptively stop? Personally I like that kind of thing, but whether or not its in the scope of this game is another question
Distributed Processing Units - Control Units
xNeroX posted a topic in General DiscussionsRED HAT SYSTEMS This topic, sponsored by Red Hat Systems, aims to inform players about the LUA scripting side of the game and clarify the facts. KNOWN ELEMENTS Propulsion Engines, Fuel Tanks, Cockpit, Navigation Instruments, Doors, Weapons, Batteries, Containers, Accelerometers, Radars, Targeters, Drone Bay, Elevator, Inclinometer (Gyroscope), and last but not least… CONTROLS UNITS / DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING UNITS Control Units – A control unit is the computer hardware, whereas the DPU (Distributed Processing Unit) is the computer's software. In fact, every element in the game will have a built-in DPU. The difference between control units and other elements is that the control units exist specifically to run player-customized DPU's, whilst the DPU's embedded in other elements are not customizable. DPU's will be distributed (sold, copied, transferred, etc) in black boxes. Think of the black box as a USB Memory Stick. Only a single black box can be inserted into a control unit at any one time, however a construct (ship, car, boat, factory, etc) can have many control units and therefore many black boxes. The black box is therefore simply a transport mechanism for the DPU. More on black boxes later. Each DPU will be capable of emitting events (standard pre-defined events written by the devs and also player-defined events written in LUA) and exposing executable functions (again, predefined + custom). The DPU will also have a collection of event handlers (again, predefined + custom: you get the idea). An event handler simply listens out for events, and then executes a function if a player-defined expression evaluates as true. Each DPU has multiple slots where other elements can be plugged into (Think of USB Ports). KNOWN EVENTS (EXAMPLES) self.radar1.enemyAt(x,y,z) KNOWN FUNCTIONS (EXAMPLES) self.inclinometer2.getRoll() self.Inclinometer4.getPitch() self.engine1.setPower(100) self.weapon7.fire() In the example events and functions above, “self” is simply a Lua keyword that implies the code is referring to its own scope. “radar1”, “weapon7”, etc are the names of the slot that is emitting the event or is being targeted to execute a function. “getRoll()” is an example of a function being invoked (safe to assume it will return a numeric value with roll angle). SYSTEM DPU The system DPU is rather special. It handles user input (emit event when a key is pressed) and also controls the flow of procedural code (as opposed to event driven) via the use of timers. I.E you could call system.setTimer(0.1) and provide a function that will be invoked every 100 milliseconds. Another awesome feature of the system API – Customizable GUI! That's right, via calls to system you can customize the games GUI. BLACK BOX/COMPONENT DPU A Component DPU is an element that you, as a programmer, will be selling to other players. It will abstract the functionality of your custom DPU into what can be seen as a compiled library. The end user will be able to consume your functions and events without seeing the underlying code. If the end-user is another programmer then they can use your Component DPU as a module to write their own Component DPU which requires your Component DPU in order to work. If the end-user is not a developer they can either drag and drop the required functionality via a simple UI, or they can make use of an auto-configure system (Think Plug and Play). SUMMARY What the devs have done here is give us access to the very tools they themselves use to build the game. When you use a Propulsion Engine, its functionality was written by the devs in the same way a player might customize a DPU. The Propulsion Engine has its own pre-defined fully functional DPU inside it. By introducing the concept of Control Units we as players can fully mod the game, from within the game. If we don't like the way the Propulsion Engine handles, that's fine, we can just overide the behaviour with our own code. The same for almost every element in the game. The devs has basicly created an in-game IoT (Internet-of-Things). This system literally redefines Emergent Gameplay, in fact it laughs in the face of Emergent Gameplay. Nothing else comes close.
