Was talking to a friend about Dual Universe and pondering some possibilities, and for some reason the idea of pets popped into my head. I wonder if pets would be a possibility in DU. Maybe ones we can make ourselves from blueprints and using scripting, and/or even maybe alien animals from planets which we can tame and capture and bring back to our homes/spaceships.
Just a random idea I'm throwing out there.
Lots of interesting points raised in this topic
Here's an update on the Pets that might be included in Dual Universe.
1) It's important to make the distinction between "Pets" and "Mechanical Workers".
a ) By definition, Mechanical Workers will be craftable helpers for a player wanting to delve into industrial activity. But it won't be a Pet.
- have a precise activity pattern, defined by an AI script.
- have a real practical usefulness in-game.
