- This is a placeholder image for now; the name is subject to change - As previously mentioned in the corporate thread we hereby initiate the 'next phase' of this project. STATUS WORK IN PROGRESS - LONG TERM ASSETS AND UNITSAirwatch (Reserved, ground component -> urban / rural patrol, traffic management duties and highway / speedway patrol) (Reserved, riot component) (Reserved, tactical component) (Reserved, corrections component) CORE INTENTION Vulture Corporation tries to spearhead and / or support a police force for long-term stability of moderate to major urban centres. With low size focus may be on one or two. Focus can include training, tactics and equipment such as vehicles (possibly incl. design) and less-than-lethal and lethal weaponry. Units are deployed after sufficient law and tactical training to work under the regulations and laws set by VPOL and / or any city, faction or alliance officials that have sufficient influence in the according city. There is currently and for the foreseeable future no intention to portray an intergalactic police force - for any security contracting needs we refer to corporations or contractors. As independent player nations and states will likely try to run their own security or police forces, we look for those interested in bolstering their (future) city or larger settlements with a dedicated police force. This means that this project is so far aiming at partners and joint city projects where several parties share tasks and responsibilities. Of course, given demand it is also possible that existing entities bolster their own forces. In a nutshell, picture a dedicated police unit "for hire" without any cliché downsides such as tiered insurance levels per city dweller. CORE VALUES VPOL will so far be inspired and guided by a set of tweaked principles of a constitutional state or a state under the rule of law. German users could surely relate to the word "Rechtsstaat" - details would depend on the other party (the city civil authorities, nation or alliance) but a general approach of de-escalation is favored and encouraged. These will find some specification in basic regulations and guidelines. In a nutshell we don't look for an authoritarian mindset. Q & A (add your own via thread or PM) - Specifics will follow - CAREER - Specifics will follow - We are glad for anyone interested in this project - while this project is initiated and supported by Vulture Corporation, you don't have to become a member of said entity - you can so far become a VPOL member while being part of an existing organization or alliance as long as no conflict of interest with the respective city authorities that we back arises. A clean slate is to be expected, however. LINKS - Specifics will follow - FEEDBACK Your feedback, ideas and support help. Let us know what you think so we can adapt - or consider it, at least.

What tools are going to be available to orgs for enforcing their rules? The idea of this game is emergent gameplay, of building a world and civilisation. Civilisation requires laws, and it requires the ability to enforce those laws. So how is that going to happen? In modern society, the primary means of punishing lawbreakers is incarceration. In a game, that's not really an option - if you lock a character in jail, that's destroying the player's ability to have fun in the game, and will likely just result in them stopping playing - losing a customer. That's bad. So, jail is out. Most forms of punishment available in a game are either trivial (execution doesn't mean much if you just respawn) or equally harmful to the game. But without some way of punishing those who transgress the rules, society doesn't function. How do you enforce law and order in a world without consequences?
Do you want to leave Dual Universe open to piracy and lawlessness? If not, help me out and draft some laws! Together, we can help make Dual Universe a safe place and give players the in game safety they deserve (or help give space pirates have the true piracy experience they deserve...).
