Executive Summary (aka tl;dr) :

Ad Astra (Latin: To the stars) is a construct/spaceship brand that brings designers and retailers together, to allow you to zoom around with a quality set of (rocket) engines. Anybody should be able design or sell Ad Astra Constructs, and you can still be a member of any other organization: Just apply Here. Feel free to flick me a PM as well. 

Also Feedback is appreciated. Thanks : )

 

 

 

The Idea:

 

Let's say your a spaceship designer, and you have just build an amazing ship. You will probably want to sell it (well, the blueprint), in order to make cash and build even more amazing and bigger things. Also, wouldn't it be great if hundreds of people flew in your creation... So you set up a shop. You sell a couple ships. Time passes by. You start thinking: What if there was a better way? What if I could make a lot more money? What if a lot more people could enjoy my amazing ship?

 

This is where Ad Astra comes in: After a quality check we buy your blueprint and distribute it to our retailers across the galaxy. Whenever a ship is sold, you get a percentage of the price. This way you can sell your ship to a lot more people then you could have done before, and make more money.

 

Let's say your a salesman, a miner. You have the machinery, you have the resources. All you need to do, is make the max profit out of them. It did not take you long to figure out that constructs are a lot more valuable than raw resources, and so you set up a shop. You sell a couple ships. Time passes by. You start thinking: What if there was a better way? What if I could make a lot more money? How do my customers know that they can rely on my ships?

 

This is where Ad Astra comes in: Just become a member (you are still free to be part of any other organization) and you are granted the license to sell Ad Astra brand ships. Now your customers know that they can rely on the quality of your builds, and you are able to sell ships that you could not have build yourself, under a known brand. Do you hear that? That's the sound of profit.

 

Let's say your an Explorer, Fighter, or just having fun (You should. Otherwise you would be wasting your time). Personally, you have a certain interest in staying alive. Also in quality ships. Good looking ships.

 

So guess what: You go to your local Ad Astra salesperson. You buy an amazing design. You take off and blow stuff up. Now you can say to your friends: “I'm flying a double A.” Or “I'm flying an Astra.” Or whatever you want to say.

 

 

What to do? Join Us.

 

So what the fu... fudge is Ad Astra?

We are a brand. That means that any member can sell our approved ship models. I expect there to be more brands, and I expect every brand to have a unique look and selling point.

 

But Astralator, I hear you saying : That's not quite how a brand works in real life.

Well my fellow Forum member: it actually kind of is. Also this is Dual Universe, and I have just decided that this is a brand in Dual Universe.

 

The detailed Stuff:

So how is this entire thing going to work in detail? Well the game is sort of kind of not quite ready yet, and when I know more I might decide to give specific policies. I do already have several solutions for issues like: Intellectual property, paying everybody and ensuring that no money gets “lost”, quality control, distribution. If you think that there is an issue I have not thought about, feel free to comment, I am happy to discuss.

 

I also created a YouTube channel where I will release promotional videos once Ad Astra has created and sells their first ship models.

So this is sort of a ship showroom/sales outlet/franchise/thing?

Looks interesting.

Sort of like Astro Armada in Star Citizen?

 

Yes. All of that.

Thanks.

Kind of, actually. Just far less elaborate... for now.
