  1. 'Trust is' Trust is specific. Ploys are vague. We are an organisation with deep dreams and vested interests. Premium services are cardinal to our dominance in handpicked sectors. The HTX is committed to exotic industry, a network of effective logistics services, sterling trade hubs and lethal PvP. Through Outpost Zebra, we hope to provide players with prime, objective news coverage online. Trust is finite. Money is printed. Welcome to Dual Universe. We are here to serve you – not the organisation or alliance. We know trust is finite and hard to obtain. That’s why we’re always in for the long haul. Lifelong trust is lifelong gain. The HTX won’t sacrifice long term advantages for short-lived profits. To forfeit integrity is loss; to break neutrality is anathema. Your alignment in Dual Universe is inconsequential: we have a reputation for impartiality. Business with the HTX is Suisse banking. Trust has history. Lies die swiftly. Our arrival in 2016 as The Aether was little more than a whisper. We have since evolved. It’s hard to imagine now, but at one time, The Aether arguably had the largest network of alliances and agreements in Dual Universe. We are not the white knights of old. Alliances and memoranda; been there, done that. Time has shaped the HTX into a focused and observant group. We have shed ghosts to obviate inflating our numbers. We have avoided alliances to spurn partisanship. Join an organisation with an untainted history and famous members. We make only one promise: business is business. Trust is enlightened. Gullibility is uninformed. In 2017, we realised, ‘this isn’t going to work.’ The Aether had goals to offer services to Dual Universe. However, alliances would require compromise, sooner or later. Simultaneously, going solo was to paint a target on our backs. A bulb turned on: neutrality is not isolation; independence is not frailty. The options: stick to The Aether or do better. Two years later, we’ve never been prouder of our decision. Dual Universe is a world that can only grow from here, and along with it, so will we. Trust is industrious. Deception tires quickly. Maximising the minimum gain is a philosophy you will come to understand in the HTX. It is foolhardy to assume an organisation can be the best at everything. We decided instead to be the best at everything we do. Our focus on industry is limited to the dynamic production of high value items. Whether these are transferred to nefarious entities for further use or creative players for protecting themselves is none of our concern. However, we are interested in ensuring the purchased goods are delivered in pristine condition. To that effect, we are developing our haulier services to reach you wherever you might be in a timely fashion. To handle hostile interest in your consignment, the HTX intends to cultivate a small, skilled and specialised group of players. Their purpose is not to harass organisations or individuals. This arm exists to make sure no living being or plan comes between you and your delivery. As a secondary goal, our PvP members must be able to stall companies many times their size, or turn the tide if a delivery so requires it. Lastly, keeping people updated on the events in Dual Universe is important for their safe passage, information and entertainment. We need nothing more than a few objective reporters around the Universe to bring you the news you need to hear. Trust is patient. Failure is restless. Rome wasn’t built in a day. It will take time, careful planning and a long march to achieve our end-goal. The sniper waits for the right moment. The industrialist builds his conglomerate over decades. We are dedicated to achieving what we set out for. Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while waiting. In Dual Universe that means having fun, learning from setbacks and constantly working towards a goal. We short-change ourselves when we give in to impatience and laxity. Dual Universe is fun; we are fun – if you have the mind to welcome it. Trust is decisive. Hope wanders. Are you satisfied? If you think you have found a mutual fit in us, submit an application. We have clearly defined goals for decisive people. If that’s you, you’re more than welcome to join a premier organisation. If we have identified you as a promising candidate, you will hear from us soon. Trust is the HTX. The Heimera Trade Xchange is a unique name, formed from our values and learned members. ‘Heimera’ is a word taken from Icelandic ‘Heimana’ (worlds) and Greek ‘Meraki’ (to do something with soul, creativity or love; leaving a piece of yourself in your work). Together, they signify our dedication to making an impact in the best way we possibly can. Is there a more realistic way to signal commitment to excellence in our activities? Our members shine. The first ever community digest featured Aetherios (now known as Vyz Ejstu). The second one interviewed Falstaf for his excellent work in founding Outpost Zebra and his generally flawless character. Anonymous is an inconspicuous figure almost assuredly behind the largest projects in Dual Universe. Kael often runs both Outpost Zebra and the organisation with mechanical efficiency. We encourage our members to be active and build a respectable image for themselves and the organisation. A star filled night sky is beautiful, but nothing without individually shining stars. What else to expect of an organisation that draws inspiration from the best of history, philosophy and design?

  3. Myriad is a social hub and marketplace for Dual Universe Players. At Myriad you can select quests, trade, and form new alliances before exploring the universe. We encourage our members to also join other organisations. Our focus is on creating an economic capital and this means that our owned territory will initially be limited to a single Marketplace/Social Hub Building. This Marketplace Hub will form the epicentre of a collaborative effort by many different organisations to create a hotspot of economic activity revolving around a single marketplace, Ours. When applying please include what you think you can bring to the organisation or why you want to join. Based on free market principles and Austrian economics, Myriad will function via decentralised command with members having extremely high autonomy and will seek to collaborate alongside each other for economic interests. We will not have a military presence, our strength comes from economic inclusion, if you break the non-aggression principle you may be subject to high trading fees or economic isolation. Member Benefits Zero Marketplace fees. Seamless access to marketplace; simply dock your ship, sell your goods, refuel, and leave in a matter of minutes. Non-Member Penalties None Members will be subject to a 10% Trading fee. Phase I - Our initial goal is to create a Home Base for Players, this will be a single Tower Structure forming the foundation of a city. This will be a great place for players to start their adventures in Dual Universe, having everything they need in close proximity. We envision a great tower structure with a Plaza, Ship Hanger, Marketplace, Quest Board, Courier Centre, and more. All completely player driven of course. Phase II - Start expanding outwards from our marketplace eventually creating a city. We will invite other organisations to create their own districts surrounding our marketplace which will be under the complete control of said organisations. Phase III - Franchisee Outposts on other worlds & Trading routes. Phase IV - CLASSIFIED. QUESTS Players will find missions via a Quest Boards and missions may include: Bounty Hunting Cargo Transportation Crafting Any other needs the market generates The users who generate and post missions may be concerned with who will carry out their missions. This is where our ranking system comes in. We will give an example based on cargo transportation missions below. Tier 1 - Player has not completed any cargo haul missions Tier 2 - Player has completed 3 successfully Tier 3 - Player has completed 10 successfully Tier 4 - and so on… If the cargo is particularly valuable the mission creator will have the option to require a pledge which will act as collateral to cover theft or space piracy. Pledge will be released on completion of the task. Each user will have their stats tracked eg. ( 94% mission completion rate, 94 successes, 6 failure to succeed.)

  5. I'm looking forward to this game very much, and instead of picturing myself flying around killing things in a fighter ship, I imagine myself working solo or freelance for other trading groups. I'm concerned with how payment will be reinforced in this game, whether it be used with currency or other trade goods. Let's say I've dropped off some rare minerals and the other party refuses to pay, how would I prevent this? Would I need the support of an organisation that provides security? Is there a contract system in place, and how flexible is it? Should I make the buyer pay a bit first, then collect the rest upon arrival? Can I sue them in-game or place a bounty? I've looked at some other posts related to this, but nothing looks guaranteed so far. I'd like to hear your thoughts, thanks.
  6. Just curious, From release, there is going to be an incredibly competitive market, which will inevitably create a huge demand for service providers. What types of job titles are people thinking of claiming in-game? What kinds of services are people thinking of providing? What would you call it for marketing purposes? Have you pre-established any rates of compensation for your work? Are they in relation to any other game/job outside Dual Universe? Do you have any marketing techniques planned to grow your business? Dual Universe seems to provide some cool opportunities for people with skills and education gained in real life. Do your chosen in-game professions relate to any skills/job titles you have outside the game? (3d modeling, logistics, architects, programmers, etc..) Do your skills outside DU give you a step up in-game? Do you think your expertise will play a part in your in-game status? Do you plan on profitting from your talents, or working on your own masterpiece? If you were going to make a list of in-game professional titles, based off of all available information, what would it contain?
  7. ABOUT THE INTERGALACTIC TRADE FEDERATION The Intergalactic Trade Federation (ITF) was founded by KittyKhatt and MinerMax555 (no longer with us), with the idea of creating a safe and peaceful trade federation for any org that wants to be a part of it. We provide our member orgs with trading posts/stations, Stargates, safezones, and possibly other things that will be decided after Alpha/Beta releases. ITF also offers protection/defense services, if you opt to pay the defense taxes (which will be tailored to your org depending on many factors). KHATT'S GOAL My goal for ITF in Dual Universe is to be a safe and peaceful place for anyone interested in trade to go to, without having to worry about wars or defense. I wont be happy until i can create such a place in DU, and so I created ITF just for that purpose. We plan on offering many services in ITF, and they are all designed to make everything safer and easier to trade between member orgs. OUR FOREIGN POLICY We will accept any org in ITF, except a few, like TVR, we even accept and encourage military-based orgs to join. The benefits of joining as a military org are free and open trading to get your supplies, along with all of the benefits of a normal trade-based org, such as access to trade posts, stargates, safezones, ect... But you are required to help with the defense and protection of other member orgs. HIRING EMPLOYEES/MEMBERS ITf is hiring! we need independent members to do stuff like deliveries, organisational work, management, and help in protection/defense. (An independent members means a member that works only for ITF directly, and not through a member org.) The requirements are the same as the ones listed below, as well as the reasons for joining. The only difference is we expect all independent members to be active regularly and work hard on whatever we need done, because we are in charge of protecting our members as best as we possibly can. REQUIREMENTS FOR ACCEPTANCE AS AN ORG/COMPANY - You must comply with all ITF rules and are expected to report to ITF officials when needed, if needed. - You must not dehumanize or humiliate any other ITF member, no matter what happens. - You must treat everyone else equally and with respect, regardless of member status. - Please listen to ITF officials and adhere to our advice. We do everything we do to protect our member orgs and reduce their risk and danger as much as possible. - Lastly, if you wish to join the ITF please join our discord, and send KittyKhatt an application for your org to join. *** (its not a requirement, but asking your own org's members to also join ITF's community page will greatly help us broaden your trade opportunities by allowing ITF to expand on the community site.) *** REASONS FOR JOINING ITF - All member orgs will be offered protection/defense services and item delivery services. - You and your org will be granted access to all of ITF's trade posts, stargates, safezones, outposts, ect... - By joining, you will greatly broaden your trading possibilities, from selling common wares, to buying that rare part you need. - You will join a semi-democratic federation, we vote on everything we see fit, from an outpost's name, to important financial deals and even taxes. CURRENT MEMBER ORGS IN ITF - Khatt Mining Co. - The Axius Empire - Tania Prospecting and Exploration Company - Unity of Ignis - Vanguard Industries - Hexix ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS CAN BE ASKED VIA OUR DISCORD, CONTACT KITTYKHATT FOR QUESTIONS.

  9. Kraken Industries (Logo by Alethion) Do you use money? Do you sell or buy items? Are you a member of BOO? If the answer to any of those questions is yes, you will probably end up doing business with us. Kraken Industries is a group dedicated to meeting the needs of Band of Outlaws and other groups. We specialize in markets, infrastructure and manufacturing. We hope be the leading supplier for all of our customers' needs. We are here to get the economy working, for you! How are we structured? We have three departments: Infrastructure, Trading, and Manufacturing. Each department has a Director, and the Directors answer to the CEO. Infrastructure - This department is responsible for building and maintaining physical assets such as mines, market units, stargates, factories, and so on. It is also responsible for making these available to the wider community for a fair price. Joining this department will provide many opportunities in construction, exploration, and negotiation. Trading - This department is in charge of all market and broker services. This includes serving as market makers, brokers, commodity exchanges, bulk trades, consumer markets, and logistics. This group is in charge of making sure you have someone to sell your goods to, or buy goods from, and that other groups are able to get the resources they need at the prices they want. Joining this department provides ample opportunities to practice your spreadsheet skills and rake in the big bucks! Manufacturing - This department is tasked with building things, with turning raw lumps of rock into the products that consumers want, and materials that industries need. This ranges from refining minerals, to building intermediary parts, to constructing finished ships. This department takes advantage of Kraken's Trading and Infrastructure resources to deliver goods at competitive prices. Joining this department The departments structure themselves as needed. What sets us apart? We are a Special Interest Group of Band of Outlaws, meaning that we get all of the benefits of being BOO members. This also means we have a good base of people to do business with. Not only do members get paid for the work they do, but every member also recieves dividends of the groups overall profits. This means you aren't working to make some elusive shareholders or absentee robber baron rich, you are working to make yourself rich! Our shares system means that profits are divided pretty equitably, so even the CEO doesn't make an obscene amount more than an average member. (more detail on this to come) Vertical Integration. By combining and controlling multiple stages of production and service, all the way from manufacturing to distribution we can lower our costs, generating higher profits and saving our customers money. Driven by Data. We believe in innovation and in understanding the markets on a deeper level. That's why we are driven to analyze the markets with everything from Big Data to statistical modeling. Our tools allow us to spot trends and gain insights that can shape our business practices. Want to apply? Join our Discord server ( https://discord.gg/eHdEhBz ) or contact @Lord_Void!

  10. The Spacing Guild We have a saying which we found very suitable: Growth + Profit = GROFIT The GROFIT must flow....Do you enjoy GROFIT? Calling all the shiny object, resource hoarding, merchants who like prospecting to carve out a wealthy pieces of real estate out of DU for yourself. Come be apart of the Spacing Guild. We as an Organization specialize in the Mining, trading and exploration are the main focus, where making money is just a given. Must have some interest in one or more of the following roles: Mining, Trading, Resource surveying, Exploration, or Construction. Protection is assisted with by other organizations we have agreements with, however, nothing prevents us from blowing shit up as well...gotta protect the assets and members. Whilst there is are no hard fast rules that say "you must do this" and "you must do that" within the guild, those that wish to do more get more. Come on over and see a bit more about our Organization. https://community.dualthegame.com/organization/the-spacing-guild#tab-description PS: those that wish to shoot shit are also very welcome.....as we expect that you will have a lot to shoot the more the game ramps up :-)
  11. This thread is to discuss the methods of transporting things to and from a market by someone who is not the owner of said object. We know that certain objects and small-ish constructs can be kept in storage units, but constructs of a certain size will not fit, and therefore must be shipped differently. The questions I have regard how I as a transporter/market owner have to operate. 1. Will there be some kind of "permission code" that will allow me to remove items from a storage unit, but not use them? 2. If so, do I have to place the item in my inventory, and then transfer it to my cargo ship's storage unit? Or will there be a way to move it directly from the static storage unit to the ship, and vice-versa? 3. If there is a way to do that, does the ship have to be in close proximity to the storage unit? If it does, then I think this will create endless headache for markets, since they would have to build all of their storage units next to the ship landing pads. Plus, if more than one item from a particular container needs to be transported, and two different people have to access the unit, it could bottleneck since only one could be on that landing pad at one time. Or if someone bought items from two seperate units, they would have to run around to different landing pads. What would work out best would be some kind of physical "pipeline" that ships can connect to. When an item is transferred to a ship, it is sent down the pipeline to the intended vessel, and into it's on-board storage unit. The ship could be parked quite a distance from the market storage unit and still have access to the storage. 4. What about ships? How will a ship be delivered unless the transporter is given essentially owner-level control in order to fly it to the purchaser? What I would like to see for this one is some kind of "lifter drones" made up of boosters and a power source that attach to various locations on the ship to be transported, then you attach the pilot craft on top. The drones all sync with the pilot craft, and actually transport the ship without ever having access to the ship's systems. Once the ship is safely delivered, the drones attach to the pilot craft, kind of a "modular" spaceship in a way. Yes, this could be used to steal ships too, but maybe there will have to be some kind of "docking permissions code" that is enforced by the ship shields. That way only authorized vessels could dock with the ship. (hypothetically) So, what do you think? How should/will NQ deal with these obstacles for transporting goods? If this has been covered already, please just point me in the right direction, but I couldn't seem to find anything about this specifically.
  12. Trade is often beneficial to everyone involved. However, unless they want to limit themselves to tossing goods across the border, it means an organization must allow outsiders into their territory. Some organizations may be reluctant to open their territory to everyone without restriction, so the Blue Moon Crew would like to introduce a concept we call the transient license for trade and transport. We are not talking about a trade organization or either organization becoming a member of the other. The license is simply an agreement between two organizations that allows one to conduct a trade and transport business in territory that belongs to the other. Since this is a transient license, their presence for that business would only be temporary. Both to illustrate our idea and to serve as a first step toward what we hope will become a common practice, the Blue Moon Crew proposes the following agreement to any organization that would like to grant us such a license. Of course, we are willing to consider any modifications to the terms of this agreement that the licensing organization suggests. For now these will only be verbal agreements, but we hope to use the RDMS as much as possible to implement them when it becomes available. Please, contact us if your organization would like to grant the Blue Moon Crew a license. We hope to post a list in the Community Portal of organizations that do. ---Transient License for Trade and Transport--- This is an agreement between the Blue Moon Crew (BMC) and the __________ organization (ORG). The ORG agrees to allow the BMC, their ship and any support vehicles to enter and travel through their territory. The ORG agrees that none of their members will attack any member of the BMC, nor will they damage or steal their property or any goods they are transporting. The ORG agrees to allow the BMC to sell goods and provide transport services to members of the ORG and any other individuals permitted in the ORG's territory. This does not obligate the BMC to provide any specific goods or services. The ORG agrees to allow the BMC to purchase goods or services offered by members of the ORG and any other individuals permitted in the ORG's territory. This does not obligate the ORG to provide any specific goods or services. The ORG agrees to allow the BMC to leave their territory whenever the BMC chooses to. The BMC agrees to remain in those areas of ORG's territory that the ORG designates as accessible and stay out of those areas the ORG designates as restricted. The ORG must inform the BMC of these designations before the BMC enters the ORG's territory. The BMC agrees its members will not attack any members of the ORG or any other individuals the ORG permits in their territory, nor will the BMC members damage or steal their property or any goods they are transporting. The BMC agrees to pay any fees the ORG has established for entering, travelling through or remaining in their territory, for transporting goods in or out of their territory and for buying or selling goods or services within their territory. The ORG must inform the BMC of these fees before the BMC enters the ORG's territory. The BMC agrees to not transport any goods in or out of the ORG's territory that the ORG has forbidden. The ORG must inform the BMC what goods are forbidden before the BMC enters the ORG's territory. The BMC agrees to not buy or sell any goods or services in the ORG's territory that the ORG has forbidden. The ORG must inform the BMC what goods and services are forbidden before the BMC enters the ORG's territory. The BMC agrees to leave the ORG's territory whenever the ORG requests them to. The ORG must allow the BMC to leave peacefully if BMC does so within a reasonable time. The BMC agrees to follow any other regulations the ORG has established for individuals in their territory. The ORG must inform the BMC of these regulations before the BMC enters the ORG's territory. The BMC may benefit from the ORG's efforts to protect their territory while the BMC is in that territory, but the ORG is not obligated to specifically protect the BMC from outsiders, nor will the ORG be responsible for any damage done by individuals who are not members of the ORG to members of the BMC, their property or goods they are transporting while the BMC is in the ORG's territory. The ORG may provide protection services if they choose, but they are not required by this license. The BMC is not required to participate in any efforts to protect the ORG or its territory from any attack. Either BMC or the ORG may end this agreement at any time by informing the other party. If the BMC is in the ORG's territory when the agreement ends, the ORG must allow the BMC to leave peacefully if the BMC does so within a reasonable time. This license is a non-exclusive agreement. Both the BMC and ORG are free to establish similar agreements with any other organizations.
  13. So as some people may or may not know, EVE Online just announced some changes to its long held PLEX system, which the DU DAC system is heavily based off of. Based on the reactions of people, I thought it might be worth discussing that here and what people do and don't like about the changes they made. First off: what was the old system? The traditional system goes like this: Player A buys a PLEX from CCP for real money and then receives the PLEX in their character's inventory. Player A can then redeem the PLEX for one month of subscription time or sell that PLEX to Player B for ingame money/items. It's an elegant system that let's people play for free or gather more currency, depending on their circumstances without making the game be pay-to-win. DU's DAC system will function a lot like this. Today, they announced several changes: They split each PLEX into 500 pieces. They created a "PLEX Vault" which allows players to keep their PLEX safe. They merged PLEX with their other currency for buying cosmetic items. The idea behind this seems to be to make PLEX more accessible and easier to deal with, as well as reducing the need to have multiple ways to buy cosmetic items since they are all now going to be using the same currency. Not to mention trying to entice more people to buy it. However, there are some common criticisms I noticed. 500 is not a very good number to divide a month into; it would be much better to divide it into something like 720 so that each piece would be worth an hour. You still need to gather one month's worth of PLEX to actually redeem it, so cutting it down into smaller increments is rather pointless. The PLEX Vault is poorly explained so it may provide a way of eliminating the risk of transporting PLEX. Dividing it into more items might cause the overall price to rise. I do like the idea of having it in slightly smaller increments, like perhaps each DAC represents a week of game time, and could be redeemed as such. What does everyone else think?
  14. Hello, Humans! Since I've been away from the forum recently the community has grown substantially. Being slightly OCD, I thought it would be a good idea to chart the "state of affairs" of DU's organizations. I may periodically update the chart so current, and new, members can stay informed about the "big picture" of org development. Due to the rapid creation and abandonment of smaller orgs, I've only picked those with at least 30 members (smaller orgs will be considered upon request). As smaller orgs grow to that size and interact with others, I can add them too. Numbers beneath the org names approximate the number of members. Green lines represent alliances between orgs. Blue lines represent trade agreements between orgs. Grey curved lines represent membership between orgs. I'd love some feedback and/or recommendations on the following post(s):
  15. Idea: Please provide read-only game data APIs for user info (level, orgs joined, current planet, etc.) and market info (price, quantity, orders list, etc.) Reason: I want to build a trade platform and a credit platform with some advanced features. That requires to fetch some in-game data. PS. All trade will happen in-game, so the API could be read-only. The relationship between the game and the plat is the relationship between Steam and SteamDB. (At the level of information provision) Pros: - The platform is independent from the game. So some updates will not affect each other. - I will make a mobile app for the platform in the future. Where the main game cannot run on. - A off-game platform can promote the in-game economy. - The platform provides some advanced features, some of which may not appear in the game. - It's a third-party project, which means that the project is self-financing. - The platform also has a publicity effect on the game. - A senior financial markets can help stimulate the player's vitality. - The existence of credit platform can indirectly help maintain the order of the game. - The platform will not pose a hazard to the game mechanism. - The platform can promote the development of the gaming community. Cons: - Game developers have to maintain a set of read-only APIs. Promises: - I will not abuse the APIs and provide necessary protections to the data obtained. - Fully respect the views of game developers. - I will try to eliminate the competition between the platform and the game. - We will help counteract the behavior that undermines in-game economy. - The platform will not provide any transaction function which could bypass the game. ------------------------------------------ADDITIONAL---------------------------------------------- 1. To be clear. Here I say "trade platform" is a one with ADVANCED ECONOMICAL FEATURES (AEF). Which means auction, mortgage, futures, blockage (blacklist) and other things. It's not simply a data aggregation site nor a trade market, it will be a universal trade platform. Also, real-time data are needed for make those AEFs come true. 2. Everything in the platform involved NO REAL MONEY. RMT is dangerous. 3. When I say "need API", yes, without API access we can also build a platform. But not a convenient one. Also, ability management is a cool idea. So if NQ allowed, please provide skill API. (This is a separate request from the above one) 4. The in-game one is only a list of buy and sell orders and have some simple filter. That's why I want to make a platform with many other features. 5. When we say "first person". Our starting point is always our own rather than the character in game. You HAVE to decide whether b/s or not. You HAVE to make your own decision. And you HAVE to trade them with your in-game character. The platform, just like UI of the game, is for convenience and be concise. If we pursue the first person experience, please turn off UI components first. 6. The most important: When you leave the game. The in-game time will NOT freeze! That's different from non-Online games. We need a platform to track market when we are not online. Imagine that you are hiking now, suddenly you see some one said in the Discord "Metal prices are soaring", would you like to check by yourself or say "hey, give me a screenshot"? 7. We cannot run and understand the market in our mind. But charts and indexes can help us. We need data collected from APIs to draw charts and indexes. Also, charts and indexes are helpful to brokers and analyzers. 8. DU has no bot station but we have DIFFERENT PLANETS. Price may be varied by planets (even locations). So we still need a platform. 9. Black / Hidden market. I said in 1: "blockage (blacklist)". It will perform the function. And it can also be used in the event of war or even you just hate someone. But, if one could find the hidden market in the in-game trade system. It's not hidden any more. Therefore, confidentiality should be the player, not the API thing. Because the APIs will only provide public information. It just make the whole thing more simple. HimeIX, A member of Alpha Academy.

  21. Novacore Creating Paths for Mankind What do we hope to achieve? We hope to be the first to explore the unexplored. We achieve this by combining the skills of skilled engineers and talented designers to craft a highly technological spacecraft to survey and study the undiscovered pockets of space. When we manage to discover these new pockets of space we immediately setup beacons and allow our Far-Worlds division to start construction of our Stargates to open up that sector of space to every civilian. What does the organization focus on? - Opening new trade routes - - Spaceship development - - Industry trade - - Contracting services - - Technology advancement - Diplomacy We don't want to have any strict laws that bide you from having fun whilst a member of Novacore but we will have some rules(list coming soon) to create a safe and respectful environment for all its members.

This role involves surveying each system entered, from planets, moons, sun size, any life sustaining planets, identifying warp points around celestial bodies and placing Stargate beacons to await the arrival of our Far-Worlds construction division to construct the Stargate. Far-Worlds Construction - The purpose of this crew is to use large industrial jump carriers to bring supplies and workers to distant worlds were no civilisation has been established.

Whenever an exploration expedition is planned to commence we will send a defence squad with them to make sure no entities attack the vessel.

Would the offense cost us a loss of any kind, we do retains the rights to prosecute you by hiring public or private law enforcement and/or juridical systems to make you pay for our loss. Membership The STAR Society is organized by a vertical hierarchy guarded by the founders with the role to oversee all activities and protect the organization from internal and external coup trying to divert us from our true mission (see our Role Play). The Council is a group of 10 members (of whom 2 are the founders) sitting at the top of STARS’ hierarchy. All members of the council, apart from the leaders, are elected by their peers for a mandate of 3 months. The Council takes all the decisions and set the objectives of each Division for the mandate toward our global objectives. Divisions represent the interest of STARS for particular activities. There are 7 Divisions : The Banking Division in charge of setting and maintaining resource banks for our customers. First objective is to build a Bank in the headquarter. The Trading Division in charge of setting and maintaining open markets for our customers. First objective is to build a market place in the headquarter. The Transport Division offering transport (of people or goods) for customers and for the Divisions, racing on STARS behalf and testing the ships of the Research Division. First objective is to develop a customer base and to train as soon as the first ships are ready. The Entertainment Division in charge of setting up the casino and gambling system, running races, showcasing live streams and all entertainment-related activities. First objective is to design and market the casino and the racing bet system. The Research Division, focusing on designing blueprints for all other Divisions and for defense. First objective is to start building the design of the headquarter, designing the first transport ship and the first defense mechanism. The Construction Division in charge of building the headquarter and any building necessary to the other Divisions. First objective is to secure and start building in the safe-zone a low quality version of the headquarter to host the bank, market place, research center, transport halls, casino and conference hall. The Security Division whose job is to protect the other Divisions during their activities. First objective is to make STARS famous by exploring outside the safe-zone, cooperating with the community, talking about us, train in fighting skills and address the griefs of the other Division. All members must choose up to three Divisions, they are free to work in any of these and must choose one to be primary for each month : the one they will spend the most time in. The Council will adapt monthly objectives according to the pool of members in each Division and the one they set as primary for the month. STARS strongly recommend to choose 3 Divisions and rotate between them because the skill system of Dual is set so that you won’t be able to be good at everything so favoring a few and becoming an expert in them seems better to us than favoring none and be average in everything. Favored trios for now The Fighter : Defense, Transport and Research Division The Merchant : Banking, Trading, Research Division The Builder : Construction, Defense, Research Division The Dealer : Entertainment, Transport, Research Division Yes we do value researchers, because all the blueprint we develop will be saved from alpha to beta to official release. However we don't force nor coerce anyone so you are free to do choose any other trios. NB: There may be basic skills needed for particular activities that we may favor in Alpha.
