Booker_Dewitt posted a topic in Idea Boxi would like to have Aerodynamics in the game i mean there should be difference between flying in space and a atmosphere of a planet. for taking of there can be some sort of lifting trusters or an anti-g system probably a conbination of both. So those wings would make sense and for bigger ships you could do that anti-g system but they should be build in space only whit shuttles to land on the surfice. probably an gravitation model for the planets would be nice so you cant just position a spacestation at 0 velocity above a planet. they would require an orbit.
Neolithic posted a topic in General DiscussionsHow is/are Dual Universe, Companies, Groups of players, etc, supposed to manage air traffic? Start from: "5:00" of this video: CRASH As you can see, from this video, we see a scene where one ship collides with another and easily tears apart with utmost no effort. How are we going to manage a ton of players flying in one area where, if they collide then the ship included in their collision will be destroyed. What if I just want to leave the planet and some troll flies by and crashes into my slow ship and I'm knocked out of air and grounded in less than a second? What will I do If I'm speeding in the middle of nowhere and someone who's texting and driving isn't watching where they're going and I get hit, and I'm stuck floating in space? Will I have Insurance? Is there a teleport or taxi service? Also, Check out my YouTube Channel: MaxedMASKED (Watch, Like, Subscribe, Share, and Grin)
Jeronimo posted a topic in The Gameplay Mechanics AssemblyQuestion 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)
