Hello there, Noveans! Today I'd like to present you with two online tools (possibly more coming soon) I've been recently working on, that aim to make the Dual Universe life easier! Item Database Explorer Link: https://dual.wolfe.science/tools/item-database-explorer An online database containing useful information related to DU items and their recipes. It has a search bar where you can search for any item or resource, and by selecting one from the list you can see the following set of information: Basic data such as ID, category, tier, volume, mass and density; All available crafting recipes for that item, including when it is a by-product of something else; All recipes that use that item as an ingredient; All honeycomb types that can be produced using it; All resources, parts and items where that resource is required as part of the chain (except when it's part of a Catalyst); As a starting example, you can check out Pure Iron and see how many parts and items use it There's also a new section in the works that will list all planets, moons and moonlets where a certain resource can be found, but it's still a WIP, due to some divergence I found when comparing in-game ore lists with the Atlas file. Celestial Body Calculator Link: https://dual.wolfe.science/tools/calculators This one is more like a general-purpose visualization of the Atlas, but also supports few calculations on things based on altitude. At the moment it offers: Gravity information, including the altitude where gravity is 0.01g; Atmosphere information, including the altitude where atmosphere density is 10%; Surface minimum, average and maximum altitudes; Construct build limit altitude; Total surface area and number of territories; Calculation of gravity, atmospheric density and total circumference length at desired altitude; I hope that information is somehow helpful for the community and I'm completely open to suggestions on what could be improved or added!
Is there any info already about pre-alpha access in October? I know that pre-alpha starts on 30th of September and we won't have permanent access to the game 24 hours per day (and probably not every day). I'm sure we could play on Saturday (30th of September) and on Sunday (1st of October) because it's weekend but what next? I'm asking because I would like to take a vacation on Monday and Tuesday (2-3.10.2017) just to play DU and I wonder if I could play then.
Hi all, I've been a long time lurker here and decided to finally register to ask a question that's been bothering me. I understand that there's a lot, if not most of this game that isn't quite set in stone. There's a lot of questions I want to ask but I know most of then can't really be answered yet. What I do want to ask is about the so called "persistent universe". Now in the F.A.Q. it's a little vague about how it describes the way the universe functions. It is implied that it is infinite but it never directly says it either so I'm left unsure about how that will all work. I'm pretty interested in the political concepts that are being looked at. It seems to be possibly derivitve of EVE Politics which is to me a good thing, politics in EVE are probably the most interesting part about that game. However it should be know that often times what drives political conflicts and wars in EVE and even in our own history is landgrabs, there's always some peice of land or territory that somebody else wants to get their hands on. My question is that if there is no limit to how much territory there can be, what value does it even really have? I've read plenty already and I see it being said that it will take a long time to even claim territory and try to spread out amongst the stars which is all well and good but let's be real here nobody outside the dev team really has anyway to measure that. In EVE territory is limited, and with low supply comes high demand and spectacular conflicts ensue as a result. If it's easy to just explore some more and get more land why would anybody fight over it? Obviously the idea of a never ending MMO universe sounds cool but is it really the best thing to do? Or will politics not really matter as much in this game. If this question has already been answered then I apologize, I searched but didn't find anything anywhere. Tl;Dr basically what the title says
