News Radio/T.V. station?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm Quite new to these forums and to Dual Universe but have been learning a lot over the last few weeks. I hope I put this in the right are as well..

 

I'm curious to see if someone is considering/ ever thought about doing a news style radio station for DU. Ive seen the radio station posts on here about playing music and having DJ's for all of us on here, but no one is talking about doing information/news broadcast's. soon after the game launches, maybe a week to a month, there will most likely be major factions/empires/federations etc.. and it would be nice for the little guys out there to get an update on whats going on in the universe/world that your on. I imagined segments on markets, current price on goods/where to get good prices, local issues with government's, and of course ad's for jobs, or recruitment for federations and such. Again very new to a lot of this so just throwing an idea out there, I would like to possibly work with someone on this if they would like to try to take this on as well. I just want to see as much immersion as possible with this game.

The community already made a Radio channel for DU. It´s called DUFM ^^ 

 

Here the link in the forums: 

 

 

He knows about this though, he says in his second paragraph that he is looking for something different from this radio station.

 

As for that specifically, a news station with live news broadcasts and information... Yeah, that'd be awesome! I'm sure people will pick it up in due time, when it becomes applicable. There are a lot of people with ideas to document and observe DU society as it progresses. The issue is that right now, the actual game is under NDA so no one can talk about it.

 

Right now you CAN talk about what different organizations are doing and how they're progressing, and people are doing that currently. When the time comes to do that for the actual game, there will be many active journalists.

We actually have a few news outlets at the moment.

 

The main 2 that come to mind is Ark Central (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKgKgHeCRixJcX-Lj2107Hw) which features a roundup of the last month (or 2) or DU information by @FancyVader and also Community news by @VVV_GLORY_VVV

 

There is also Outpost Zebra (https://www.outpostzebra.com/) which had articles by members of the community on a variety of subjects from Scripting/Design to General News and organisation interviews. This is run and moderated by @Falstaf, there are many other members that also have articles posted too which you should check out!

 

We also have DUFM (http://du-radio.com/) which is setup and run by @yamamushi (also has an Android and iOS App!) and the newly formed Silverlight Radio (http://silverlightradio.dx.am/). Amazing contributions from these guys setting up radio stations and asking nothing of anyone!

 

That's just a selection of news outlets, check them out :)

I'm not alone in doing this and I'm always looking for content and people to work with.
