DEVBLOG: THE ALIOTH EXCHANGE


Recommended Posts

Dual Universe is home to a vibrant player-driven economy, with many enterprising Noveans finding creative ways of advertising their wares in-game. With last year's introduction of the parking rules for markets and districts, it became clear to us that we needed to supplement external community tools by creating a dedicated, in-game site for players to buy or sell goods and services.


Catering to the entrepreneurs and shoppers of DU, we are excited to introduce the ‘Alioth Exchange,’ a new megaplex offering an opportunity for players to spend their quanta in shops built and run by their fellow players.


“The goal of the ‘Alioth Exchange,’ is to provide a venue for players to showcase goods and services that cannot be done using the traditional market system. Additionally, serving as a Community Hub for information and social interaction to help better facilitate player connection.”

- NQ-Nicodemus, Keeper of the Exchange


The first Exchange site in Dual Universe is being introduced with the Mercury update and will sit at the heart of a teleportation network between all Pioneer Zone districts and markets.


It will house an eclectic mix of player-built constructs, (limited to an XS core) advertising and selling anything from voxel libraries, ship shops, markets, racetracks, Lua scripting, or anything else players choose to build and offer. Shoppers can navigate the Exchange using a directory that creates waypoints to their preferred shops. While shopping, players can enjoy an internal “Fast-Track” system within the Exchange, that is built out of elevators!
Each of the four halls of the Exchange are also marked with a shape and a color such as a yellow cross or a green circle, which will be rendered from afar to help navigation.

With only sixteen initial slots, space is limited! If you’re interested in joining as a vendor, we’d urge you to start the application process as soon as you can.
Application Process:

  • Step 1: Read this document carefully to learn our rules, guidelines and requirements.
  • Step 2: Build your construct to a completed state, ready for review by NQ.
  • Step 3: With your XS core construct complete, fill and submit your application form.

 

We are excited to bring you this new feature and will be monitoring your usage to decide whether or not to add more similar sites in the future. We look forward to hearing your thoughts in this forum thread.
