  1. Hey, so I was wondering, what if I get out of my ship, and go take a walk? Can someone just come, jump in my ship, and take off? It would be pretty annoying but it would also be cool to be able to hijack a ship if say, you sneak into an enemy base and need to escape(or something equaly cool). So I play GMod RP servers, and one thing they do is have the ability to lock your car. If you forget to lock your car, then anyone can take it(which is rare because everyone locks their car). I had an idea for DU, since there's so many people that may be able to jump into your ship the split second you get out, why not have a button that allows you to lock your ship while inside it, so it would already be locked the second you step outside. To make the feature balanced so that people might not want to lock their ship is that it would take 5-10 seconds more to get back inside your ship if it's locked. So if you have a fleet of ships that you may need to launch a counter attack at a moment's notice, those 5-10 seconds will really matter, and therefore, you may decide to not lock your ship because you have defences all around the base, it's not like anyone outside of the organisation could take it anyways. But, if you decide to attack the base, and your ship goes down, how will you get out? Well, there's a fleet of ships in the next room. So you run there, hijack an enemy ship, and escape. It would just add so many possibilities for war, while not changing much for the more peaceful side of the game, like life in an urban area, as no one would leave their vehicle unlocked. That's just my opinion on adding a small feature to the game, that could have a big effect. What do you guys think? Edit: I don't think some of you guys got what the point of this thread is, and maybe that's my fault for not being specific. So here I'm going to be more specific about what I want. So I do actually want hijacking to be a thing in this game. I just don't want it to be as easy as jumping into a cockpit and flying away. And like I've said before mrjackobean came up with a system that I think is very nice. mrjacobean, on 20 Oct 2016 - 09:33 AM, said: So while I do want hijacking in the game, I want it to be somewhat difficult and require a bit of a high skill in hacking. I don't want it to be impossible or semi-impossible to hijack a ship. And obviously hacking would take time. So you wouldn't go into a city and go hijack a ship, because people would see you and probably call someone or hit you(I'm thinking that if you get hit while hacking, even if it does 0 damage, you'll have to completely restart the process. But yea, I didn't want there to be any passwords, motion sensors, or anything that you can't see yourself cracking within a couple minutes. CaptainTwerkmotor, on 20 Oct 2016 - 09:55 AM, said: On the other hand, I do want it to be somewhat difficult to a beginner player. And even take time to do for an elite player. I want it to be balanced between being able to hijack, and not being able to hijack/being able to stop a hijack. Can you see yourself guessing the password to even 1 door? No, and also, it would get really annoying to get in and out of your ship. Entering 3 passwords every time. Astrophil, on 20 Oct 2016 - 8:19 PM, said: Also by the way, I was talking about cockpits in this thread but I think we should address doors that would be on a ship. I think it would have the same properties as a cockpit. You hack it. It jams open. Then this creates a reason to use turrets and other defences. Basically, I want hijacking to be accessible, but not easy.

  3. The assumptions that the following is based on is: 1) Ships stay in world, even when all players near it and/or own it have logged out. 2) Ships cannot be added to or destructed but can be destroyed. See here[\url] for official confirmation. So now the question becomes, what do I do with my ship when I want to log off? This has been covered in other threads and answers include 1) player run parking lots 2) hide it 3) park it in a safe zone. My issue is the safe zone. In a safe zone a ship is effectively indestructible. So when a troll parks a suggestively shaped ship in an otherwise beautifully crafted city, what can be done to remove it? Some ideas that have been put forward elsewhere include: 1) when its power runs out, it can be destroyed as normal even if it's in a safe zone. 2) if it is derelict for too long it becomes publicly owned so that anyone can fly it away. 3) nothing can be done. It is now part of the scenery. Thoughts?
  4. Question number 5 (Dual Universe Explorers - Live Q&A w/ JC Baillie - Novaquark CEO || 09/17/2016) minute 14:45 https://youtu.be/H9Y0YmqGYDM?t=887 Few thoughts and eventual mechanics solutions why air within spaceship would be terribly usefull Considering the eventuality of a normal voxel as Data 1 (solid point), void as Data null (inexistant data, uncalculated), and air as Data 0 (existing point but with no interaction) Building a spaceship would be creating Data 1 point clouds within Data null Air, Data 0, could be spread in a finish construct by the intermediary of a specific element placed within the construct to detect breaches, or enabling voxels building mode on a moving spaceship, from the hypothesis of this topic. In terms of gameplay, the element could take the form of a "red alarm light", each could be renameable, be placed on the ceiling or above doors, and be connected to a display screen element in a control room, displaying pressure status of every rooms this elements are placed in. The pressure display screen would allow in real time to know the status of the ship hull, and alert in case of breach during a confrontation or a collision. A breach isnt a scratch and could involve an opening big enough for undesired infantry within a ship, so why not having by the way the possibility to remotly lock the doors accessing to the room where a breach is. In terms of mechanics, each "red alarm light" elements, would on start of the ship, spread within a room, air, Data 0, and calculate the number of points needed to fill the room. A breach could be detected when the ship starts, if the Data 0 point cloud reaches the whole construct virtual volume border, then the alarm triggers and send a signal to the control room display, until it is fixed and reseted. During a confrontation, the alarm would trigger if the calculated Data 0 point clouds is expanding, then the alarm triggers and send a signal to the control room display, until it is fixed and reseted. When alarm triggers, the element would instantly remove the Data 0 point cloud it started to calculate and replace it back with Data Null I believe it could be one solution how to introduce air within a spaceship, and 2 possible uses for it But not the only solution for spaceship hull status detection (that could also be made with only one element, but less precise, displaying a floating mini 3d model of the ship automaticly built at the ship start, and comparing it with the real time voxels volume of the ship) EDIT: other uses for air condition in space ships - breathable environment (the need of air in the gameplay, difference for players between void and air) - biomes, and future potential emplementation of farming/planting abilities - gravity (affecting air environment but not void ones)
  5. _____ I have done a search for "boat" and I did't find anything on this so I think this idea isn't said for the moment. Sorry if my search wasn't long enough and if my idea is already said. And sorry for some sentances/words who could be strange : my english isn't perfect. _____ Hello everyone I saw a lot of spaceships designs, but no idea if we could have elements to make our ship not flying but floating (boats) or rolling (tanks, cars, ...) If we could, it would be great for the transportation systems who doesn't have to fly (between 2 cities on the same planet for example). The elements like wheels, floats, etc, would be less expansive, because you know, it's slower and we can't fly ^^ But it's cool for tiny budgets who don't have to fly. Maybe we could have special (and cheaper) cockpits who don't allow to fly but, with the elements for it, to have for example a car, a boat, or a mix like some able to float tanks. Aaaaand for more thrust on more futuristic boats, we could place spaceship thrusters but it would be more expansive of course (and the cockpit would still blocking any flight). OK this last idea is a bit mad x) I hope you liked this idea
  6. It could be really interesting if you could develop or create some sort of biological ships. Like large living space faring "animals". A sort of incredible bio-engingering shooting parasitic creatures or spines as weapons :3 A bit silly maybe but it would be really cool. (other "ship types" would be really cool aswell
  7. How open will the shipbuilding be? I saw in the trailer when it placed the cockpit in the front and such... but how far with the design can we go? Will we be able to design our own cockpits (that would be fucking amazing) maybe add AI (like that says "Good evening captain, currently our fueltanks are on 80%. The weather is fine and the skies are the limit") or such? Will we be able to design our own engines? or discover schematis for special types of engines or Cockpits? :3
