Industry plunk.

The latest video for Dual Universe should be good news for anyone eagerly anticipating the game’s second alpha test because it confirms that the team is in a good state that the test should be arriving on July 11th as planned. That’s just three days away, and once it arrives players will be able to take part in the glory of industry, which is one of the central improvements for this update. The video explains the industry system extensively, a series of linked inputs and outputs allowing for crafters to build factories for other players to use to build other things.

There are other improvements for the game as well, of course; the game’s water rendering has been significantly improved, for example, and the existing clouds of the game have been replaced with volumetric clouds to make you feel even more immersed in… well, the presence of clouds. Check out the video just below for the overview of what to expect on the 11th.

Still a big NDA in the way of the game. It’s starting to worry me.
Also how is something on track if they delayed it 2 weeks for more testing? Would that not make it 2 weeks behind?

Also do they keep the servers up 24/7 now or is it still like 12/1 per month or something crazy?

You already know the answers to all of these questions, you of all people keep up with the news. It’s like the only reason you commented here is to stir up doubt and spread misinformation to people who otherwise wouldn’t know any better.

The servers are up almost every weekend for 96 hours at a time, which either you already know and are just complaining, or you don’t because your only motivation to play games seems to be to want to live-stream them.

And if you’re really complaining about a 2-week delay, something which any reasonable person would still count as the first half of the year, let me just introduce you to literally any other crowdfunded game ever…

As someone who had access to Alpha 1 and was in no way a die hard fanatic of the game, I would say that the above comment has very little to do with reality.

There are reasons why NDA’s exist, and trolling streamers is not one of them. You can doom a project in its inception if the perception of the public is negative even without anything to back that perception.

I am not sure why the reader above is so upset. If you feel like seeing where the project is at the moment and have extra cash to spend you can do it.If you don’t want to spend money and wait till it becomes a RELEASED GAME, don’t do it.

Please remember, this is an ALPHA, not even beta, and the game is on track based on their schedule made a year ago. Honestly, in game development these days, sadly, that is an achievement.

So Mr. Kane, please practice some patience…
