  1. General overview Vulture Corporation intends to provide work, products and services in the following categories listed below. With former root in another contested region (competitive Minecraft, formerly), we look to the stars in the Exodus from Earth to regain a stable footing and to offer our customers and members a lasting experience they can look at with pride. More information can be found on »vulturecorp.space and »vulturecorporation.com. You can also interact with us via Discord at: »Link Career? Career starts here. For people from all over the galaxy. It does not matter where you are from, but often, we have or had members from the places shown above, with a focus on but not restricted to European heritages. We're dynamic and next to qualified motivated employees, we also look for contractors and partners. You are interested in working with us? Simply contact us - while our promotional hubs listed above offer more information and serve as central spectrum presence and hub for us, we prefer to actively engage in conversation with potential future employees, contractors and partners. This is the best way to find your place here and to ask any questions before submitting an application! But why consider signing up? Our central team is currently small but growing and we want to offer our employees an optimized experience. Dynamic profit distribution is one thing, but the most vital part is that our employees can take responsibility. You think you're team leader or department management material? If you can prove it, the spot can be yours. You prefer to specialize in specific tasks? No problem, specialists are our backbone. Who do we look for? With our new strategic goals provided by the board, we first and foremost look for potential leadership and management material to establish a working foundation for the Corporation. While we wouldn't say no to fitting specialists who focus on specific tasks, in the long run we need a competent number of managing staff that help shape the style and direction of the Corporation. You should therefore apply with this in mind. How can you apply? The first step here is simple: Contact us via »private message to find out if and how we can move forward together. While we currently overhaul and generally offer an application system, at this time we prefer the direct interaction with potential applicants. ⚠ So what is Vulture Corporation in a nutshell? Vulture Corporation is a small but slowly growing player organization, formerly in Star Citizen and now Dual Universe. Most current members are from European timezones but it should not be a deterrent for others as we want to recruit internationally for a broader coverage and experience - we did this before after all in a Minecraft server community years ago where we were very successful, with members from the US to Europe and Russia. Dual Universe could be the perfect "reboot" for us in terms of sandbox roots. We want to highlight the fact that we want to support and engage in roughly moderate levels of RP and have an immersive experience. After all, this group was created by roleplayers initially. Initial members had broad RP experiences with both elements of active and passive RP so today we strive for "immersion". An immersive experience is vital for us and can contain active and passive RP alike. We want to bridge worlds where people that are not fully and those that are fully into RP can get along just fine and enjoy what is to come in Dual Universe. While I consider myself as modest person I think the best example of how we feel about RP and what effort we want to invest is our multimedia such as promotional videos or AI contact videos. Feedback so far seems to tell us that we're on a good path regarding that. There is a lot of interesting and even great groups and multimedia out there but I did not see the same style elsewhere so far, so I think we're somewhat unique in that area. We currently have a few members in reserve and do not specifically focus on Dual Universe at this time - obviously, given the lack of content or accessibility yet, but we always look for alternatives. In between members can play what they have together, for example we recently dipped into "7 days to die" where a member provided a small dedicated server. Perhaps you can bring a new addition on the table as we wait for DU or you assist us with multimedia and specifying company lore more. To stress it, however, our "primary games" we wait for are still being developed, we have no hard alternatives. We so far have a flat hierarchy on an OOC basis and prefer a healthy inner social climate where de-escalation is key to preventing notable conflicts in the first place. Chances are you're ultimately not interested or part of a group already and simply taking a look, but in either case we're happy about feedback. What should change? What is right just the way it is? Let us know. You might just get it back later when it matters to you. I believe this should suffice for a more or less solid overview so far. If something is unclear, simply ask. We don't bite, and with that said, I thank you for your attention. - Subject to change -

    Public Event

    This public event idea can offer a lot of gameplay or strategic choice. For example: The arrival of IA ships in areas (random or not) Neutral IA contructions, with events of sieges, to defend. Or moving asteroids with valuable resources (example without AI). This is intended to diversify: -The harvest of resources (or others). -Add PvE and PvP content -An opportunist rating or specialty in this area. If this happens: At PvP level, I think that will regulate or limit the number of access to certain events, to limit large clans to crush small clans. At the PvE level, this can open new long-term goals at the level of an invasion story or other battles to be fought other than PvP. Many event ideas can be proposed or other point of view.
  5. CHROMION INDUSTRIAL Credit to Aetherios/Infinity for the artwork above During the late pre-Arkship era, an organization rose up to challenge the UN's selection process for the Arkship Program. This organization is known as the Cinderfall Syndicate. Within the Syndicate, there were a few members who branched off into another direction: Industry. With a new goal, these men and women founded Chromion Industrial in hopes of advancing human technology. A SUMMARY Chromion Industrial is a Corporation with an emphasis on Mining and Engineering. We recognize the importance of freedom and creativity, and are looking for creative minds who think outside the box. It should be noted that we are members of Cinderfall Syndicate, and we will respect their authority on political matters. The only requirement to join is that you must be polite. STRUCTURE This corporation has one leader, the Head Director, and below that person, it is structured into three Divisions: MINING DIVISION The Mining Division is in charge of acquiring, refining, and distributing raw materials. This will be led by a Mining Director and two Assistant Mining Directors. The lower command structure of this Division will be determined in the near future. Mining Director- This person is responsible for handling all mining, refining, and distribution of raw materials Assistant Mining Directors- These persons are responsible for the individual aspects of the Mining Division (Mining, Refining, and Distributing) RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT DIVISION The R&D Division is in charge of manufacturing and producing parts and ships, as well as researching new technologies. This Division will be led by three area directors; The Director of Production, The Director of Research, and The Director of Special Projects; the lower command structure of the individual branches will be completed in the near future. Director of Production- This person's job is to handle the mass production of Chromion Industrial's ships, vehicles, and parts. Director of Research- This person's job is to handle the research of new technologies within Chromion Industrial Director or Special Projects- This person's job is to handle any special orders from specific Organizations, and the research regarding them, should it not already be complete. CHROMION INDUSTRIAL NAVY (CIN) Chromion Industrial offers a place for those who would like to spend their time fighting as well. The Chromion Industrial Navy will be tasked with protecting the members of Chromion Industrial and hunting down any who would attack us. This Division will be led by a Commander and a Lieutenant Commander. The lower command structure of this Division will be left up to these two positions. Commander- Leader of all Chromion Industrial Navy (CIN) forces Lieutenant Commander- assists the Commander in his or her duties SHIPBUILDING Chromion Industrial sponsors it's members ship building efforts. What does that mean? Any ship that a Chromion Industrial member designed will be featured in Chromion Industrial markets, if that member wants them to be featured. In exchange for being featured, Chromion will enact a 60/40 profit ratio: Chromion keeping 40% of the profit, the designer keeping 60% There will be a line/brand of ships that are Chromion Industrial make, meaning they are designs created and produced specifically as Chromion Industrial ships, and not designed by a second party, i.e. Individual Members of Chromion Industrial. Every month or so, the R&D department as a collective will be given the task of designing such ships. Occasionally, CI might petition one of it's members to add one of their ship designs to this line, basically buying the design from said member. FUNDS There is no base salary as of yet, however every member of Chromion Industrial will receive a weekly salary. The Directors of each Division will be paid by the Head Director. Each Division will receive a budgeted amount of credits every week, and it is the responsibility of the Directors to distribute some of these funds to each member of their Division at the beginning of each week as their salary. In addition to your base salary, certain accomplishments within the organization will grant you pay bonuses. If a player remains with Chromion Industrial for a particular amount of time, they will be eligible for a raise to their base salary. They will also be eligible for discounts on ships and items produced by Chromion Industrial. Note: If you are offline/not doing your job for an entire week, you will not receive salary for that week, rather than being let go by the organization. DISPUTES Internal Disputes between members will be handled by their respective Division Directors. The Division Directors' say is final on any matters. If any Directors have a dispute with one another, the Head Director will handle it. The Head Director's say is final on any matters. DIRECTOR POSITIONS The current list of Director Positions: Head Director~ Halo381 Mining Director~ Assistant Mining Director~ Assistant Mining Director~ Director of Production~ Director of Research~ Director of Special Projects~ Commander of Security Forces~ Commander Trailblazer Lieutenant Commander of Security Forces~ CINDERFALL SYNDICATE Chromion Industrial is a member of the Cinderfall Syndicate. As a member of the Cinderfall Syndicate, we are apart of a coalition of nations and corporations. As such, we have allies we can count on to help us in times of need; be it to complete a difficult research project or to defend our institutions. As members, we offer the same camaraderie to our allies, and we will not tolerate undue hostilities between our members and theirs. JSDF Within the Cinderfall Syndicate is the JSDF; a group of fighters who would come to the aid of any Syndicate asset in need of protection. Any Syndicate member (that means us) can join this defense force; it's a purely voluntary organization. QUESTIONS How will war be handled? Chromion Industrial will allow it's members to participate in wars of other organizations they are apart of. If Chromion Industrial itself goes to war, we will muster up a fleet composed of members from every Division, with the Security Division as our lead. War on other Cinderfall Syndicate members and organizations is prohibited. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I can be a member of a different organization too? Yes! This is not the only organization you are allowed to join. We will not prohibit you from joining or creating another organization, so long as it is not an enemy of either Chromion Industrial or Cinderfall Syndicate, and so long as you fulfill your duties within Chromion Industrial. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The link to our page on the community website~ https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/chromion-industrial You can also find us on Discord, at this link here: https://discord.gg/uckarBz Any further questions can be sent via PM to Halo381 That's all the information you'll need to know. Thank you kindly for taking the time to read this topic! Before you leave, I'd like for you to take these words of inspiration with you: Aspire for greatness. Rise high, and cast your shadow upon the world. Stay frosty, yall
  6. Okay, so this idea hit me the other day and it is not fully fleshed out, but I think it is a good start of something. First, here are a few assumptions: There is a finite amount of each material to be mined in a given system. Systems will be depleted over time. When a ship is destroyed or a person is killed some material is "lost" forever, while some can be salvaged/reclaimed. The economy needs some sinks and faucets in order to prevent excessive inflation or deflation over time. Now, my idea to address some of this. Basically, when ships are destroyed or people are killed and some of the material is "lost" the amount can get added to a system-wide tally. Material sold to the Market Bots that JC mentioned would also get added to this tally. The game could then pull from this tally to generate material asteroids in deserted parts of the system which could be scanned down and mined, thus restoring the resources to circulation and conserving the mass. These materials could then be used or sold to market bots again, bringing currency into the game. In addition to preserving mass and providing a currency faucet, this would provide some basic "PvE" content and help prevent systems from becoming depleted. To provide a currency sink to counter the currency faucet: the market bots could also sell the materials directly from the tally but for a fairly high price relative to what they buy it for.
  7. BOO IS ACTIVELY RECRUITING PLAYERS AND ORGANIZATIONS BOO WEBSITE LINK BAND OF OUTLAWS COMMUNITY PORTAL LINK A WORD FROM OUR FANS (LINK) Discord: https://discord.gg/mhAaKmA ________________________________________________________________________ WHO ARE WE? Band of Outlaws is a growing community of gamer's within Dual Universe. Our goal when the game launches is to provide a community environment for all play styles. While our theme and preference leans towards the renegades and outlaws, we are also happy to accept traders, builders, and anything else in between. We want to encourage everyone in Dual Universe who has a heart for a sense of community and gaming to join us, whether as individuals or with your own group. Either way, we have a growing support network that anyone can benefit from. We understand games can be hard to commit to, and acknowledge the fact that people have lives outside of the internet. We won't force you to do anything, the only thing we want you to do is to have fun and play the game your way, hopefully with us among friends. ________________________________________________________________________ THE PLAN: Band of Outlaws wants to create a community for those who wish to play out their inner rebel, whether that be through pirating, smuggling, being a mercenary, a bounty hunter, and everything else in between. That is just a small portion of what our community is going to accomplish, as we have been steadily growing in several other games such as Battlefield 1, Conan Exiles, and several more. We want members to join a family of fellow, like minded internet nerds than just some faction in a singular game. That said, we certainly plan to have Dual Universe as our focus when the game launches, and we have several projects in our development pipeline for our community to participate in when the time comes. I'll list an example of such below. • Project Tortuga: Band of Outlaws plans to accomplish many tasks within Dual Universe with the help of volunteers within our community. We want to create a safe haven for outlaws like you and I, and are planning to construct a free port away from prying organizations who seek to control everything. Dubbed "Project Tortuga", our free port will be available for anyone to use, not just the Band of Outlaws. This project has also been extended to the greater Dual Universe community, and with the help of the Band of Outlaws, we can all have a place to call home. _________________________________________________________ THE OVERVIEW: • Primary language: English primarily. • Time zone: We accept anyone from around the globe. • Goal: To create a support network for players in DU, providing benefits for mercenaries, bounty hunters, you name it. We plan to have several internal services established to let you play out your character in DU. Also, blow things up and make money. _________________________________________________________ WHAT CAN BAND OF OUTLAWS PROVIDE FOR YOU? • Security in numbers: Our safety network will you keep you and your assets safe. • Community: We have a vast network of players with a wide array of goals in the game, we all support each other in and outside of the game world. • Trade: We plan to have a vast trade network, where you can get the best deals by being in Band of Outlaws. • PVP: BOO will need to protect its assets, and we plan to be very aggressive. We will teach you how to fight, and provide you with the ships to do so. • PVE: We're not sure how PVE will be in the game, but we certainly plan to be apart of it as we know many players may not want to do PVP. • Exploring: There is a big galaxy out there, so of course we're going to explore it! _________________________________________________________ WHAT OTHER SERVICES DO BAND OF OUTLAWS PROVIDE? • A discord server that is managed 24/7 with hundreds of members playing various games. • Website/Forums to hang out with other BOO members. (WIP) • An actual gaming community of internet nerds, with the number one focus being fun. This family is open to all. • A chance to help create something unique and inspiring. Come make history with us! _________________________________________________________ HOW DO WE OPERATE? Band of Outlaws is not out to be the next mega corporation with an umbrella controlling every sub-organization within our community. We operate under a general community management system with our Managers and Moderators doing all of the admin work so everyone else can enjoy whatever game we are playing. Within the context of Dual Universe, right now our management for this game is open ended until the game launches and we can see where we need certain positions filled. _________________________________________________________ DBAD CLAUSE - RULE: Band of Outlaws will not drag you down with rule after rule. To sum up how we expect members to behave - don’t be a dick. We’re all here to have fun, and there is no reason to be rude to each other. This includes flaming, hate speech, starting drama etc. Let’s act like grown men and women. This also extends to how members are expected to act towards other organizations/communities. Be respectful, regardless of affiliations. _________________________________________________________ INTERESTED? We are always looking to recruit new players, or organizations within the Band of Outlaws. If living the outlaw life is for you, then this is the best alliance to be apart of. We encourage you to apply immediately, and be apart of the greatest organization made for rebels and outlaws like you. Below will list minor details to help you when you apply to Band of Outlaws. • Applying by yourself as a player? Simply head on over to our community portal and submit an application. Your application will be reviewed, and a voice interview with yourself before we finalize your enrollment. This is simply to make sure we can maintain some sense of security within Band of Outlaws, and that we can both get to know each other and be sure that not only you would be a good fit for us, but that we would be a good fit for you. If you are interested, just apply on our community portal - Band of Outlaws Portal Link • Applying as an organization? We are always looking for other player organizations to join the Band of Outlaws alliance. Being a member of our alliance has benefits that are listed in this post above. Among those, you will benefit mainly from a wide market audience and support network. Band of Outlaws members and organizations are forbidden from openly attacking each other. We are all allies here with the same idea, and we want you to be apart of that. Simply send a private message to Cybrex, and negotiations will be made. If you have any questions regarding Band of Outlaws, please contact Cybrex. BAND OF OUTLAWS COMMUNITY PORTAL LINK

Economy The Economy of the Terran Union will mainly be consisting of private ruled companies, but there will also be government ruled facilities, such as shipyards and trade posts. Companies Be a Company in the Union (means the headquarters will be on TU territory) Your Company will be part of the Union and it would be gladly seen if your employees would also be Citizens of the Union. The Company will follow the law, pay taxes and sometimes the company will be offered contracts by the government (conditions in Gameplay/PvE/Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering). Military contracts are mostly given to companies that are within the Union. Your company will be allowed to have contracts with other factions and even branches in other faction’s territory, you can also call for help by the TU, be it diplomatically help to establish trade routes or military help to defend your property. Companies in the Union: Be a Company that works with the Union (means the headquarters will not be on TU territory) You will be an independent company and the company and their employees can make whatever they want. If you want to work with us you can ask for a contract or we offer you one, we will also search for friendly relations and offer to establish branches or mining rights in our territory. You will have no rights to call for help by the TU, but any kind of help can be part of a contract. Companies with a friendly relation to the Union: (having a branch/multiple branches in TU territory) SilverLight Industries Chromion Industrial Companies that are currently working with the Union: Vulture Corporation (Relation will probably change with time) National Bank Banks are important facilities in the economy, so the Union will provide a National Bank, that will offer following services: Rentable Safes The protection of your valuables is an important task, so the National bank is offering safes for a small fee. Here you can store whatever you want and it will be under the protection of the government. Loans The National Bank will offer loans for Citizens and Companies in the Union. Markets Basic Markets An item market for the everyday needs. Established in cities exceeding 50 Citizens. Advanced Markets An item market for advanced elements and materials. Established in cities exceeding 200 Citizens. Capital Markets A market for everything your heart desires. Only established in planetary and regional capitals. Ship market included. Will have Government Trader. Orbital Markets A market for everything and in huge amounts. One per planet. Ship market included. Will have Government Trader. Society Libraries Public Libraries We will have public libraries, where all the unclassified knowledge, exploration data and recipes, that are gathered by the Union, will be stored for the access of the Citizens. Government Library This Library will be containing all the information that are be considered as classified by the government. Including recipes/blueprints for weapons of mass destruction, blueprints for military ships, locations of important/very valuable resources and so on. Access to this information’s are only granted to employees of the government with corresponding release level. Schools Public Schools We will have public schools accessible by Citizens of the Union. Here you can learn a profession of your choice. Experienced players will teach you what is important for your chosen profession, providing recipes and blueprints and will help you to increase your skills to a certain degree. Government Schools We will have schools accessible only by employees of the government. Here is the choice of profession more specific and more challenging. Experienced employees will teach you what is important for your chosen profession, providing recipes, blueprints and resources and will help you to increase your skills to a degree of your liking. New Employees of the Administration will be also trained here. They are taught how the government works, what their duties and if necessary the handling of tools outside of the game, for example Excel. Military Academy Here will be trained the military personal in courses such as, basic training, advanced tactics, fleet maneuver or advanced officer training. News Public Service Announcements We will provide Public Service Announcements for each administrative level, in our forum (once it is released) and on in game bulletin-boards. Newspaper We will provide a nation-wide newspaper, published by opinion independent journalists (I hope this makes sense, what I mean is that they will get a salary from the government, but they will be free to write whatever they want, would I write “opinion-free” it would probably indicate the exact opposite. Terminology is really difficult please help me someone with this). About what the newspaper will report, will depend on the news priority for the nation. It is also possible that there will be more local-oriented newspapers. Newscast We will provide a Newscast with the most important news regarding the Union and the galaxy, such as wars, peace treaties, politics (mostly TU but also galaxy), government decisions, new colonies and sometimes a bit propaganda for example the completion of a new TU Capital ship. The newscast will be provided via YouTube and in game functions. Gameplay PvE Exploration We will finance exploration missions of different sizes, reaching from single ship missions, to long journey convoys with multiple ships. The only we are asking for is, to share your data and discoveries first with us, before you sell it to others. Mining We will offer regular trips to different mining locations, including a military escort. Depending on where the location is, how valuable are the mineable resources and how often the trip is made, the size of the convoy will reach from just a few, to dozens of ships with hundreds of players. But we require for the protection we provide 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of the resources which you have mined. We will also have continuous mining missions with Motherships or Stations, of course also under the protection of our Military. If you're a freelancer, you can mine in the region where the mission is and give us 10% (5% for citizens of the TU) of your mined resources or we could buy the resources but for a slightly cheaper price as on the free market. If you're a Newbie or just need some cash, we offer salaries to mine for us and you can decide if you prefer your own ship to mine with or if you want to borrow a ship from us for free. (this will probably be limited due to the limited space on board the motherships and stations) Building | Designing | Scripting | Engineering We will offer different contracts to make something for us, that could be a Script, a Design Concept, a Mechanical Contraption, a Ship, a Building, a Megaproject or just a simple beautification of a city. The contracts are split in 3 main categories: 1. Employee-Contract: We'll pay you a salary and providing the resources for the work, to which we assign you. 2. Freelancer-Contract: We'll pay you a fixed amount and provide or pay for the used materials. 3. Company-Contract: These contracts are awarded only to companies and will be negotiated. After the completion of the contracts, the created blueprints are passed to the Terran Union. Trade | Transportation We will regular offer escorts to trade posts that are far away from the TU Territory. To participate, a fixed price is estimated, depending on the duration and dangerousness of the journey. We will also offer missions and long-term contracts, to transport goods and people for us. Science We will offer positions in our research facilities for scientists and engineers who are more in development than maintenance. As an employed researcher you are free in your choice of research, but sometimes you will get requests, which you can reject, but consider your reputation. In case of war, a rejected request can lead to a dismissal, depending on the importance of the request and your current research. This will be an employment; you will get a salary but your discoveries will belong to the Union. We will also offer Freelancer and Company-Contracts, if we need some specific tech to be researched fast. Maintenance We will have a lot of civilian buildings, ships and stations and they must be maintained. If you considering such work, we will offer you an employment and a salary. Other As the development of the game is progressing, there will be probably other career branches and as soon as we know it we will offer employments, contracts and missions. PvP Mercenaries We will offer missions and contracts to people who don't want to join the military, but be prepared this work will be dirty and probably more on the unofficial side of things. Events We will organize different kinds of competitions, for example building competitions in various classes reaching from art, to fighters, and we will probably have dog fights. We are open for suggestions. Interplanetary Tournaments Once a year we will organize a great national tournament, where every citizen of the Union can show his skills. The participants will compete in various disciplines, such as building, dog fight, racing, strategy, and so on. The tournament will start in the cities and every citizen can register there. The winner on city level will then compete on the regional level, the winner of this are going on the planetary level and after this we will have the grand final on the national level. General/Social/RP Holiday Events We will try to organize Events timed and themed to real-life holidays and we will try to get other factions and maybe even the devs on board for this. Roleplaying RP is welcome but not necessary. We will try to create events and special areas for roleplaying and we look forward to receive ideas and suggestions from you. Joining the Union Warning If you want a position as high ranking official (Minister, Parliament representative, General and Admiral) you should be aware that this means a lot of work for you and you will probably receive phone calls in the middle of the night, because of some catastrophe or enemy attack. If you want to be a member of the administration, you should be aware that this means work and you should have some skills in office software. Even after you finished your work you will be a contact person for the citizens of the TU. If you want a position in the military, you should be aware that this means discipline and to follow orders. If an officer ordering you to jump, you will jump and not ask why. You will us also tell fixed times in which you are online and at least half this time you are on duty; in the other half you can do what you want. Next topic is that you've committed yourself, just leaving is desert and will have consequences, but you aren't bound forever. The Contract will have a runtime of 3 months, 10 deaths on duty or 50 dead enemies. I know this whole thing sounds not really good, but here is the good part, you will get a very generous salary and we will take good care of you. The above mentioned jobs are 18+ exceptions considered on case by case basis. Ranks (currently available. with time it will be more | To pay taxes and to follow the law, are duties for all ranks) Citizen: Your only duties are to pay taxes and to follow the law, otherwise your freedom is boundless and well protected by military and law enforcement. Government employed: You are an employee of the faction and as such you get a salary and you have in some cases access to the resources of the faction, but your work will belong to the faction. Soldier: Pretty good description above in the warning. Who we accept We are a Nation we accept all as long as they follow the law. How to join If you want to join, simply leave a post that says that you wanna join and we will contact you. (this method will probably change later) At the moment we are searching for a capable artist for emblems and pictures for the description, if someone feels like "I want to help" please send a PM to Darius Sanguna !ATTENTION! This Site awaits further refinement in the future. All numbers mentioned here are subjects to changes, till the Union is fully established.

    Rogue AI

    I would definitely like to see some kind of AI enemy that shares the universe with us. The "AIs" could be player designed ships or bases that have been abandoned for a long period of time driving the ship's AI to malfunction with catastrophic consequences. They would be hostile to everything organic and squishy so it gives the players that want to be moral a way to experience combat and boarding without needing to harm other players. Eventually there could even be fleets of these ship traveling through the universe like some kind of cosmic natural disaster to anyone that can't properly defend themselves. To stop this force of nature a military Org with sufficient firepower could be hired to deal with them, in other words a Raid created by players and destroyed by players. The frequency of these raids will be rare due to the method in which they are created, but if this process is too slow the Devs could implement the ability for AIs to capture the ships of their fallen enemies. I know the Machine vs Creator card isn't the most original concept in Sci-fi, but I really think that this could be a good fit i Dual Universe since it would all be player-made, it gives purpose to an Org's military that isn't the small threat of pirate attacks or the full-scale Org v Org war. Let me know what you think about this topic, I'd love to flesh this out a bit more.
  10. Shadow Corporation: Overview: Welcome Shadow Corporation. We are private contractor company that provides quality service that is fast, reliable, and trustworthy. Our goal is to fulfill a custom's expectations, needs, and wants while still providing service as cheap as possible. Additionally, the corporation has its own product line of ships, and building designs and offers a variety of training. If you wish to learn more then read on and if you have any questions or are interested in joining then please contact me. Details: Colors: Black and Red Language: English Communication: Discord (Others may open up in the future) Services: What kind of contracts will we accept? The answer to that is practically anything. You require a ship build? We have that covered. Need a mining operation set up? We can do that. Maybe its something a little more sensitive, like spying on someone or tracking down a person of interest. We can most defiantly handle that. If you need it done than we most likely can get it done. Now you might be asking, why would I chose Shadow Corporation when I can just do it myself? Well that's easy, we are here to save you both time, and money while providing a service that is top of the line. Instead of doing it yourself and having to spend your precious time doing something why not just have us do it and then you have more time to do other things. Thus meaning double the productivity. But why Shadow Corporation and not the competition? First off, we are not going to rip you off. Gaining boat loads of money is not the goal. The goal is to provide you with the best price possible and to give options, like providing materials in order to further reduce cost on your side. Secondly, Shadow Corporation will ensure that all your expectations, and desires are meet or are above and beyond. We will ensure detail in everything and will inspect all work done before presenting it to the customer. if we miss something then we will fix it at no additional cost. We strive to provide the best customer service and products around. Product Line: We possess a small product line of ship, buildings, and training Ships: Our mass produced ships are primarily fighter class. Ranging form light, and highly maneuverable, to heavier, and overwhelming firepower. If we don't have what your looking for then we will happily custom build one for you. Buildings: Our building designs range from small houses, to large sky scrapers, to production plants. This product line is present so that we can quickly and easily proved services when the customer doesn't want something unique but purely something that works. These designs help us reduce prices because we have ensured that we only include the necessities while keeping it looking nice. Additionally, we know exactly what materials we require, how much man power we need, and how much time it will take to complete. Thus allowing us to accurately tell the customer what to expect. Training: We provide a variety of trainings. From a beginner class to help teach new players the basics. To more advanced classes, like learning how to program basic AI or learning how to best fly a fighter in a dog fight to gain the best odds of survival. If we happen to not offer training in something that you are interested then let us know and we will happily find someone for you that can tutor you. Security: Many customers might be concerned about the security of both their products and contracts. We understand that many customers expect secretiveness so do not fear. We provide on-site-security, ensure contract information is kept secret, and keep things on a need to know basis. On-site-security: Shadow Corporation provides minimal security, free of charge, on all building projects. This is to both protect the project and the employees working. Additionally, if a customer feels that they want more security then that is an option provided. Additionally, depending on the project, we can build items off world and transport it in order to provide both additionally security and secretiveness about the recipient. Contracts: All of our contracts are between the customer and company. We make sure that all information is kept secret in order to protect both the customer and the company form threats. Need to know: All employees are on a need to know basis regarding any business. This is to both continue to prevent information form spreading and to protect the customer. Plans for the Future: There are three phases planed for Shadow Corporation. Each phase is based off how many employees the company possess and allows for additionally expansion. These are subject to change/modification. Phase One: This phase is the begging state of Shadow Corporation. The minimum of the corporation will be an HQ, some outposts, and a small team. Phase one will end when there are enough employees and contracts to need expansion. Phase Two: This phase is a middle phase and will most likely be the longest phase. This phase will be a time when Shadow Corporation will grow quite a bit and hopefully have good standings with many customers. This phase will be one of growth and refinement. Phase Three: This phase is the ultimate phase. This is when Shadow Corporation reaches a point where it almost runs itself. There are plenty of employees, contacts, customers, and outposts to properly support everything. Joining: If you are interested in joining Shadow Corporation then you have two options: Member or Employee. Member: If you choose to join as a member then it means that you can not join other organizations (This helps to ensure trustworthiness). Members will be the core of the company and will help keep everything running. Additionally, because they are the core this means they will be the candidates for higher jobs. Employee: As an employee, you are welcome to be apart of other organizations. However this primarily means you will not have as high of a job. Do not take that in a bad way though as there will be more than enough job options that will fit you just fine. It just means that if your wanting to be a top guy then you wont be able to. If you are wanting to join then message me and we can talk. Thank You: Thank you for taking the time to read through this description and overview of Shadow Corporation. If you have any questions, or wish to discuss anything then please message me. With eyes on the future, -Shadow
  11. Any chance you can make a video on how combat actualy works and looks like? I mean sure you vaguly described it BUT Id like to see some actualy fight action of fighter vs fighter and at least small cruiser vs a cruiser are there hitpoints on the ship? or is it like space engeneers where bits and pieces fall apart? How does it go with loot after ship explodes.... repairs? Do you repair your ship manualy or is there a shipyard.
  12. I'm sure there have been previous posts about PvE, but I want to share some of my ideas as to how PvE could work in Dual Universe. So in one of the early Dev Blogs, JC mentions NPCs in this quote: " At this stage, it is not clear if we will have enough time until the alpha to implement NPC animals to come and bother you during the night, as well as serve as hunting preys. But that’s the idea, because you will need to feed yourself, and the nanoformer cannot make wood-based lunch for you!" So based on this, it's clear that JC plans on the game to have a survival aspect to the game at some point, where hostile creatures will bother you in the night, like in Minecraft. I thought about how the PvE system would work if it was the same as it is in Minecraft, but the system of monsters spawning anywhere the light level is low wouldn't fit well with Dual Universe at all. Having monsters spawn in your skyscraper just because it's a little dark would be a huge annoyance, and would ruin the immersion that Dual Universe creates. So instead, I was thinking that hostile creatures could instead only be spawned in certain locations where a specific monster spawning block is generated. For example, this could be a giant nest that spawns a wasp-like creature that attacks players if they get too close to the nest. I think it would be interesting if these creatures behavior varied based on the species. For example you could have creatures that are extremely territorial, but are neutral otherwise. For other creatures, they could roam in packs like wolves, and attack anything they find. I think hostile creatures could become pretty important in various aspects of the game. For example, it creates an incentive to build shelters to survive the night, to build cities with walls protecting it, to create turrets to defend from monsters. It could also create a whole new profession, monster hunters. Maybe the game could spawn a nest of hostile monsters every couple weeks that creates a problem for a vulnerable settlement. These settlers don't have a group of powerful soldiers to eradicate the monster nest, so they hire a group to hunt these monsters and destroy them. (It could also create situations where you find abandoned towns due to monster infestation, which I think is pretty cool.) Also monster nests could be used as a rare material that's desirable, so monster hunter groups could also just hunt monster nests for the sake of getting the rare resource from it. (And of course the monster themselves could drop something somewhat useful, like food to help sustain the hunt.) Of course, many issues arise from this system. For example, there needs to be a system that prevents a planet from being covered in monster-spawning nests, so maybe it could be limited to spawning within a certain radius of players. Maybe the higher the density of players in an area, the more powerful of a monster spawn-nest is created. Another issue is making sure there isn't too many monsters, so you obviously don't want the monster nest to continually spawn monsters that flood up the game, so as long as the monsters despawn when players aren't around, it should be fine. So what are your guys thought? Assuming there will be monsters eventually, what kind of system for monsters do you want Dual Universe to have? Also, what kind of hostile creatures do you want to see that would fit well with the lore of Dual Universe?

  14. After watching the kickstarter video I have to admit that I´m impressed. I´m sure Dual Universe will be the better game compared to the direct rival Star Citizen. But there is one thing I miss deeply and that is PVE Content! Are you planning to add some kind of enemy races or mean spirited aliens? I mean the game looks awesome but exploring the universe without any risk is not very thrilling. Okay you got the other players who might troll you, but I think some PVE content and a pinch of mystery would make the game perfect. I think there are lots of ohter (not PVP) players out there thinking the same way. But I hope the kickstarter will be a success and wish you guys from Novaquark all the best! Otherwise if you plan to keep the alien races a secret until the first player gets in contact with them I have to admit you guys are brilliant!
  15. I m opening this topic to share a global game structure point of view that i think will make the difference with other similar games, going point by point through the different game mechanics. First of all this game appear to be the greatest of all, maybe because its unfinished yet and not full of promisses, that allow us to still make dreams about it, far from founded and unfounded critics. (I think we all waited No Mans Sky and been extremly disapointed) - First point will be the "sandbox" term i would like to review: As few of us might probably know and played, but one, and probably the first sandbox game (if we can call it a game), that still exist, is "Second Life". A infinite flat world in a free to play game, divided into square regions that are subdivided and sold by parcels for real money. It has its own ingame building and scripting system (with a language simplified from c++), and possibilities are absolutly endless. The only problem is that graphics are not good looking, its not really a game, it is ful of greifers and everything ingame cost real money, but in the creation part, there isnt any game, sandbox like game that can do better in terms of freedom. - I ll continue then on the "ingame building" and "objects creations" mechanics: To talk again about Second Life, because i think its viewer should be considered as an inspiration source, i m not sure how Voxel works properly yet. But as simple as is it, having a third person view, as a 3d modeling software, and few editable prims, such as cube, sphere, cone, tube, pyramids etc... as base objects, allow an infinite possibility of creations and isnt ressource demanding for the future servers. Objects would have a tree structure, with a main prim and sub prims. Server side, and gameplay side, the freedom of Second Life, makes it not be a game with any goal, I ll refere to Antoine de Lavoisier who said: "Nothing can be lost, nothing is created, but everything can be transformed" In that way the ressource gathering and creation part can take its sens, and significantly limit the memory usage of servers: to be more concrete, the volume of what ever you would wanna build/shape, you will have to gather it. you wanna make a spaceship, you ll have to gather meter cubes of iron to build it (and not stacks of 64 irons as in Minecraft...). Each planet will have a certain volume of each ressources that can be gathered, and players will team up to gather faster and more. Beside that is also the texturing of those creations, and the uploading of any images onto the server could be a payable service, so one of the source of revenue for the developers, for the case of a buy to play service and spend a bit more to customize it a lot better. I think aswell the crafting system must be forgotten (unless its for a device that will let you fusion 2 materials together, but this can be integrated into the UI), and let any created objects, fully designed and built by players themselves, and have a kind of dematerialisation device, that will let you pick up your creation, store it in your inventory, and drop it somewhere else (like Bulma and her capsules in DBZ) Material creation volume limitation might aswell propbably limit greifing, since as any sandbox open world games, griefe is a serious issue - Next i ll talk about "scripting" and animating created objects and give interaction with players: A script doesnt take much space on a server, since it is only a text file, but beeing able to script our own creations, adding movement, functions, interaction, particules etc... would trully give life to your creation and not having them just standing motionless in the air. Second Life as this system too, and that give a greater value to your creations, aswell will start to engage relationship between players and for some will push them to regroup for beeing stronger. The roleplay will be at the rendez-vous, some will be helping for building, some for coding, some for gathering, some for exploring, some for fighting etc... and the community will become more dependant and stronger. Some people dont like to travel but will be impatiently waiting for the scout teams bringing back goods for the community. Here are some example functions that could be available for script creation: /say /tell /wisper /shout /moveto /follow /rotate /lookat /particules /light /sensor /detector /rez /unrez /timer /onpress /onchatcommand etc... not limited to only those, but will need a little work on a simple and proper coding language to make this all work Would open possibility to build and script defens turrets, following bots, UI huds and mods, automation houses, cars, other kind of vehicules etc... And wikis will appear on the web to share all this knowledge about scripting in Dual Univers - Now some other ideas about "trading" and "interaction betwen players": Gathered ressources, created objects all could be a money change through a trading menu, and gold maybe or any other valuable extraterian material could be used as a global univers market money, since gold doesnt have much use in construction, and would be great for making coins right? But i m not sure if a local money proper to the game is a good idea. Once more, let the players decide the way they wanna trade. This super Stark signed lazer gun or this premade space house for 100kg of gold and 10kg of titaprominium etc... Or maybe why not an online market displaying ingame players creation that could be purchassed with real money Aswell i think PVP combat, hunting, flight chassing... should be always enable outside safe areas. A previoulsy saved location would teleport the died player and his spawned objects such as spacecraft, dematerialized and returned back to inventory, maybe with dammages that will need material to be fixed and reused. Traveling in the unknow will become exiting and scary, as it should be! Maybe a player age system (ingame days/years age without dieing) could be integrated for some popularity and community recognition. And the counter would reset on death, unless a freindly player revive before respawn. - Ideas about how could be the environment and terra forming: Inspiration isnt far, but "Minecraft" did it well. days and nights times, each planets with its own type of weather, planets with none, few or only hostile mobs... we want all. It should be for example impossible to build anything night time without a proper lighting. Exploration could still be continued, with stress, with a portable torch light. Terraforming and mining, should be smooth, and not make huge perfectly spheric holes in the ground and not as simple as just pointing a gun here and there and making everything flat. For preservation of randomly generated beauties and strong limitation of griefs. Can check on the "Minecraft" like "7 Days to Die", that have done it well but still very buggy. - To finish, the subscription fee! Developpers might only like this part but we also need to like it to start and continue playing I personnally dont mind paying for it, as long as it stays at a reasonnable price and not become a fiasco full of promisses. Better do it well and take time than beeing in a hurry to make money. As any multiplayers open world games, developpers are looking for long term revenues to reward their years of labor and incoming years of updates. There is no center in this dual univers, but the developpers. They wont sell us one of their planet but here are few points i would personnally agree to buy after purchassing the game: 1- An additionnal configurable device that once put on a land will secure it, from grieifing, from pvp, entering. With different prices, and different size of secured volume, from 100m radius to the planet size (communities might collect donation for buying bigger devices), and would look like a giant spheric force field. 2- Additionnal engines, turbos, guns part, equipments pieces, unscriptable by players essential parts for builds 3- Online offgame univers market objects selling commisions 4- Materials/ressources packs (for the lazier) 5- Textures uploading fee 6- Premade by developpers, objects, buildings, scripts... Didnt talk about travelling, flying system, it might be too early, but of what i have seen, there is nothing to add, looks great! Now i just hope some of those would be criticized and taken in consideration! Cheers!

  18. So in the lore we see two different kinds of AI. The AI that commands the Arkship and a personal AI. I assume that these are different kinds with the Ark AI being more akin to an A[g]I or Artificial General Intelligence though not fully one and the personal AI being more of the Interface your suit uses to give you information on whats in your Kadpak and possibly news from other players and such along with any other general information that the player may need. That first part basically outlines what I think the person AI should be. Not a full AI but the suit interface with different functions. The reason for it being an AI and not just some text on screen would be to help keep the person sane as long periods with no interaction with others can cause a person to go insane. Here are some things the AI could do/help with though this is mostly game fluff and ways to explain things the game does with lore. Display whats currently in the Kadpak Show a news-feed from other players around the galaxy Alert the player to different environmental things such as new ores or another player entering the immediate area. Connect to a ship and help provide basic support for things like control, targeting, navigation, and repair. Scripts would augment or replace this. Alert the player to ship conditions like hull integrity or atmosphere Alert the player to blueprint problems Be nameable with (modifiable?) voice packs (possibly a cash shop / tradeable item created by users for ingame money) Now for the more "fun" part. When reading the lore and some of the parts of the ship AI I was somehow reminded of Fallout and the different vaults in that game as well as several other sci-fi things with AI in them. We know that our own Arkship landed and is at least somewhat sane but what about the others? A number of Arkships never made it off Earth but its assumed that at least some others did and they have probably been traveling almost as long or longer so where are they? These are some ideas for a few of the other Arkships however these should be later in the game after people start to explore out and such. Rouge AI: This Arkship AI has gone rouge and has begun using the Arkships guns to kill off everything around it though it appears to have gone rouge after/before landing (two ideas here) Offline AI: The Arkship continues to function for the most part autonomously however with the AI offline it is unable to land and release the humans inside. Mad AI: The AI has gone mad and has used its influence on the humans inside driving them all mad and begin to hunt anyone and anything not part of their Arkship. Because the AI is still online the Arkship managed to land though it would most likely not be a nice landing (crooked/ fallen over) and the uniforms of these others should be different in some way (maybe colors or design) Aka: space pirates Functional AI: The AI is fully functional however the Arkship took damage from an unknown source and most of the humans were "lost" and the ship is drifting. The AI is working on a way to allow the Arkship to land. DisFunctional AI: Similar to the Functional AI however this AI has woken up the brains of the remaining crew to assist it figuring a way to land the ship properly by utilizing their brains. Hive AI: think star trek borg but humans less covered in tech Mostly just some random ideas I came up to allow for more PvE and interesting exploration
  19. My name is Trihxeen. I am from Texas in the United States. I am 27 soon to be 28! MMOs have been a big part of my gaming life since I was 14(playing RuneScape) and I plan on playing them til the day I die. I have played: RuneScape, EVE(not too much though), Star Wars: The Old Republic, Blade & Soul, and Everquest Next Landmark just to name a few. I have played around with some game creation tools, but I have no degree. I can find my way around a 3D modeling program and I have down SOME modeling myself. The only one I have left from moving and changing PCs over the years is a model for a game I am currently writing a story for. I am about to start classes in game design, and hopefully one day be making my own games! I am the first member of NinjaClanFu to join this forum! So, lets talk about some of the history of NinjaClanFu! We started out as a group of three playing Minecraft together, and from there we have played/experienced many different types of games together! We came together as NinjaClanFu with 6 people when Ark: Survival Evolved was released in Early Access on Steam. We slowly grew in number from there because of some mishaps with a couple of people we added. But, we are always looking for more members in the future! NinjaClanFu won't be any type of corporation, but we will be looking to build a community to thrive and prosper. This includes everything that the game will have to offer from miners to pvp to any sort of administration we might develop! We are currently planning on being explorers for a while, and hopefully finding a nice place to set up camp and get started on growing! We currently aren't recruiting, but that can change soon! When we do start recruiting(if you would like to join us), we will likely have an application with MMO history and would like to know your experience in building, mining, PVP, and so forth. Additionally, we would prefer to meet will people in TS, Discord or something similar. Maybe even play some games together to see how we click! Play styles won't have to be exactly the same, but we would like to add people who have a similar, if not the same vision. Anything else you would like to know about NinjaClanFu or myself, don't be afraid to ask! I will try to be as active on the forums as possible, but it might be minimal throughout the week since I work 4(days), 10 hour shifts each day. Thank You for taking the time to read this! I look forward to meeting everyone! -Trihxeen
  20. In Pvp and Pve and everything in between, players find interesting ways to win, gain an advantage, or prevent their loss in an impending demise. This concept is an attempt to bridge many styles into a coherent method. Simply : When you click logout and are flagged in combat, you logout, but your body remains in the game. functionality, people might be able to move your body into a jail cell. People could steal your non cosmetic clothes - Armor and Weapons. Hack into your Calabai-Yau Space Nano Pack and take your 50 bananas. When you log back in, and -wake up-. You find you have been put in a jail cell and are wearing inmate clothes. You could always suicide, with your nanoformer thats built into your body's cellular structure. Or you can negotiate with your captors. Maybe they have a robot, or a terminal where its all set up to let you go, if you accept the demand to pay them 100,000 credits. and they give your stuff back. Maybe theyre just bad pirates and stole your stuff and wanna see you go crazy, and or kill self. --- For PVE, when you are fist fighting a bear, and you suddenly disconect. Your body goes limp, you are still in combat though. The bear might kill you. Or, it could even be coded so when a player is in blackout state, the bear loses interest and walks away. This would need some testing or check though to prevent abuse. Like if Bear is at 80% health or more, it will, drop combat with player and move away from them. If at less than 80% it will stay in combat until you are dead, or a certain distance away. Your friends could drag your body away from combat? --- On ships, this gives you a chance to log back in, in the same spot and not far away on a resurrection node - or something else. It could even tie into a medical profession ?? skills to keep blackout patients in combat or alive longer? --- In general, player bodies shouldn't be persistent things. or we might end up with piles of player bodies, and mass graves or something crazy. Players could keep other players, bodies in game. By keeping them in combat. A stun gun turret or something, shooting them every few minutes, in the jail cell. Or, Mad scientist Doctors keeping them on some kind of life support --- I pose this idea half based on the quantum immortality, pretty much we are interfacing heavily from our dimension, with the Dual Universe Dimension. Even if the characters die, we their consciousness are still alive. When we go to log back in and force an argument with the dimension of Dual Universe that we are alive. Its forced to create us if we died. Its a little blurry on when you aren't dead though.
