It's true. He got my nudes and then sent me a bunch of his. At least he was willing to be fair about it. Anyway he's a fun guy to play with. Always preaching the ways of goonunism. He even had us make fort goondoor on The Forest.

As far as the learning curve goes though, they have stuff in place to help with that. Plus everyone is pretty helpful and knowledgeable too. Or at least we are getting there as we figure it out.

I think this game has potential, but it needs a ton of work before release. If it's not a long beta it'll flop.

i mean its very early in the beta process right now... the game is a ton of fun... we spent a good amount of time this weekend mining and made over 25 million in the game's currency... not saying the game is perfect and polished, but the fun mechanic is in there...

IMO it's a bit broken ATM and they are making a ton of knee jerk changes. Will be fun to talk more when the NDA lifts. I didn't play hard this weekend but did around ~15mil.

There are some server issues, and some instability on the planets as well as some issues with mining especially when going in groups... I mean there are a lot of things that are yanky... but the game is fun... things are ramping up at an elevated rate...

This was posted on the Dual Universe forums https://board.dualthegame.com/index...friend-program/:

NEW RECRUIT-A-FRIEND PROGRAM

We’re pleased to announce that our new Recruit-a-Friend program, which will arrive at the start of Beta on August 27th, will allow players to earn great in-game rewards every time one of their friends' purchases game time. The program is built to reward the total game time purchased by recruits and not just the total number of players who were recruited.

As a Dual Universe player, you will be able to get a unique Recruiter link from the new Dual Universe website: when the new website is live on August 27, login in the header and select the Recruit A Friend sub-page of My account, where your unique link will be available. You can send it directly to your friends, or use the website’s built-in system.

Once you or your friend creates an account using this unique link, both of your accounts will be linked automatically! However, beware that once an account is linked to a recruiter, this action cannot be undone. Whenever your recruited player purchases game time for the first time, they will receive a special jump-start booster, which includes the following perks:
  • 1 Static core unit size XS
  • 1 Cockpit SKIN
  • 1 Container Hub
  • 2 Container size S
  • A two-seater speeder blueprint to venture in
  • A one-time teleporter for your friend to join you
  • 1 week's worth of talent points to freely distribute

--

Unfortunately, we won't have codes until the new website goes live the same day though... There is a good number of us that will have a lot of invite codes, as well as free beta keys... Feel free to hop on our discord to ask about the game and sign up for keys: https://discord.gg/MAA8nTD

That static core is pretty underwhelming but a week's worth of talent points is very nice. Container hub is very nice as well.

e: misread that as a month's worth of talent points at first, doh.

It may not be interracial, but it is black and white.

Okay, so the current plan is for servers to go down at 8am ET this morning and then the game will be launching into beta officially at 10am ET (2pm UTC). If everything goes to plan then we should be able to start sending beta invites out somewhere between those times.

Get hyped, but expect jankiness with a fresh patch and lots of new people joining up at all once. Also know that your initial load time will likely be really long. The game will be building a database of all the voxels and constructs near you and the starting districts tend to have a lot of them. Follow the tutorials when you start and they will quickly take you off planet and away from the laggiest areas. After that it should be quite a bit better for you.

As soon as the NDA is lifted at 10am, I'll be posting some new player tips and a starter guide from Tempus Thales and crew right below the OP. Wyldly Inappropriate is the main goon guild so check out their discord if you want to get in on it.

NEW RECRUIT-A-FRIEND PROGRAM

Aaaand delayed a month. Apparently they never made sure it actually worked with their code redemption system when designing and building it. Amazing. Oh, and it won't be retroactively fixed, so any friends who join the first month won't count.

I really wish there was a parking garage or something at the starter bases that would despawn your constructs into "parking" after a few minutes. It would help a lot.

quote:

If you are separated from a dynamic construct by less than 125km, you can fetch it to you by opening your map (F4) then clicking Constructs in the top left and right clicking that construct in the list and selecting Fetch. This is a debug feature that will eventually be removed from the game, but is great if your vehicle is stuck in the air or underground. You can also exploit this feature a bit by putting a large container on a XS dynamic core and fetching it around the planet as you mine so you put the resources directly into the container as you mine.

So with that, they didn't clear out the user database from the stress test like they said they were going to and the beta invites don't work with the existing stress test accounts. To get around that, you just need to create a new account with the beta key. However, we are still waiting for them to get their act together with the new website so we can start sending out invites.

People have had success subbing to the game and starting to play instead of using beta invites, but if you have an invite coming your way, I'd hold off for a bit to save some money.

I like it but all I've been doing is mining and building up my production line. The building tools are excellent and you can tell they put a ton of thought and effort into making building as flexible and easy as possible.

The long load time is just for the initial login where it's downloading a ton of in-game constructs to cache on your machine.

Beta invites are very janky, but working at the moment. I've sent out mine and my friends are able to log in and start playing.

To send an invite visit dualuniverse.game, login in the top right corner, then click Products. You then enter your friend's email address to send them an invite.

When you sign up with a beta invite, you need to use a different email address than you used for the stress test if you participated. Then on the account creation page it will give an internal server error, but it sends a confirmation email. Validate email address and you are good to play.

I bought a starter orbital ship from a guy and then added some extra stuff to it. Anybody in WIDOT can give it a whirl if you want some practice going to space. I did a test flight from Sanctuary up into orbit, over to Alioth, landed, and then circled back. I didn't do too much in the way of orbital or aerial maneuvers but it's got enough fuel to mess around with that if you want to. Worst case, it's a cheap ship to repair or rebuild.

I sent an invite out yesterday and it worked. According to discord though it's hit or miss right now.

I hear most of the ones that don't work are for folks with existing accounts, stress test/backer whatever, if it is registered with DU already it probably won't work right now.
