The VR president thing was to try to promote the platform into other areas. Like virtually tycoon casino that never came to fruition or compets that has yet to prove its worth. It's OK MA trying to pass the buck and say it's all was ND idea, but it has MA paw mark all over it. Just like someone another thread it's just long line of disappointed promises from MA. Hangers, space, stables etc etc. ND loves to see his name plastered everywhere, but he is trying hard to promote this game through so many level via twitch (champions league), social media (conscription work) or what he loves the most big shindig so he tell people who he is. I would prefer if he fully put more effort and for MA to put more effort into this game and not keep chasing rainbows.
although the point for ND is not to promote the game. It is to promote himself because he is a big egocentric dick.

I just think it was a PR exercise, a VR president in the run up to the US elections that might get picked up by a news channel who would run with it. Would have allowed ND "airtime" to promote himself, Rocktropia and of course EU overall.

Thats my take on it anyway.

ps Wheres my presidente strongbox


Viva El prezidente!

I guess it failed because of these main points

1) Failure to identify a need - VR doesn't need a president.
2) Failure to execute - a method of voting (probably the most important part of any democratic system) was never implemented.

Involving the community at an early planning/development stage would have helped a great deal, see item 3 below :)

3) Failure to realise that nobody in EU cares about having a president of virtual reality, we care only about EU.

4) Failure to communicate that this was a failure with the community so that we can all move on.
5) Involving Neverdie.

How can you vote differently when there is no other candidates? If you vote for B or C which was no one then the vote didn't count. So he would have still won regardless.

I'm also avoiding his planet because he does not keep his promises. I want my strongbox!
Well you might as well quit the game then. How many times have MA gone back on their word? It is down to MA to give out boxes, ND do not have the power to do it.

And what is that he is doing in particular? I didn't see anything.

You wont, cos I'll give it you back faster than you can write a support case!

:xbiggrin:

Good to hear you got another half bottle to go. Knock yourself out.

I'm getting pretty tired recently of certain loud-mouthed minorities in this game who think that newbies should be encouraged to sell sweat for 2.0 :laugh:, traders shouldn't be allowed to make a profit ("resellers"), and MA has to forcibly protect players from their own mistakes. locking somebody's account because he bought something from the auction is a breach of trust. oh and don't forget the tiresome bitching about every little thing that is done, or is not done.

and let's not forget the atrocious communication from ma's part. tp fee system has been cancelled? and I learn about that a month later?! that is an official decision and has to be communicated accordingly!

maybe the time for a re-evaluation of my ten-year-plan has come. for now I just won't depo anymore.

Do we have a list of things that ND did/will do?
I thought that only was a marketing campaign..

Edit: Except his exceptional devotion to promote EU in the different events
But i mean.. things done IG for the current player base?

They also got the minister election over there on that forum... so maybe the count down thing is til the polls go up? (be funny as hell if they add another month to the counter, which knowing Mindark is likely)

Now if they would just fix the darn POVR posters (currently they sink in to the wall, and you have to turn them sideways and hang them over a corner to see anything but frame)

I thought it was completely new game not involving MA, there's no mention of them on the site or EU.

But then there's very little info on the site anyway, other than crowd funding starts soon so it might be the count down for that.

Maybe it's a new continent on whatever planet that Vegas to Macau, Postmoderna, CRD, Theryon Wars, Planet Michael and Universal Monsters are all continents of... Tried going there but kept getting a message about not being able to enter deep space.

On a more serious note...


Didn't someone already try to do bitcoin to ped conversions?

36 hours to go! so, what can we expect? :scratch2:

snafu? :laugh:

Interesting idea. Personally the name puts me off a little, I have no idea why it needs to be associated with america.

I wish ND well on the concept and I hope it is an extension to EU not a competitor (although I wouldn't blame him if that was the case). Maybe a new player built planet or something :yay:

Maybe ND is sick of having to get approval from MA for all of his crazy ideas??...although creating something that competes with EU would be strange considering he has a hefty investment in EU. Most likely it will be his way of trying to incorporate virtual reality into EU.

But yes the name is off putting as well.

Well now he's invested in the knowledge on how to build things for CE2 and EU he might be looking at the other licensing models for the CE3 / Amazon version instead to cut out the middle man.

Not sure if it all connected, but first government (a group of elected players who will communicate between the RT community and NeverdieStudios on what should be priorty on VU, bug reports, promote RT, organize official events etc etc). ND said he was planning a crowdfund to pay the wages and to pay for events. Not much info on that.

We got some stuff implemented last VU that contained a AI mission, but it still not altogether working yet.

NEVERDIE;n115925 said:
​The Gun should last 2 Days of work minimum. so You need only collect 50 Pec from your 2 days of loot from the AI mobs to cover purchasing a new gun. .. I suspect you will loot more than 50 pec per Day.

​Your revenue from Loot is entire separate from your daily wages... Your Daily Ammo Quota is also entirely seperate from your wages. Your Ammo will basically finance your Weapon.

​So You will find this Mission Will cost the player absolute nothing but time. All loot and Wages are a Bonus. No out of pocket expenses that wont be covered by the Job itself.

In an article I found this
"AmeVRica will be a “cross-platform world spanning such platforms as VR, AR, and mobile” in order to make the world widely accessible, according to Jacobs. This will reduce major logistical and cost barriers to participation in the world, especially given the impact of “smartphone culture,” he notes. Eventually, Jacobs projects the world will draw “a billion users” and generate “a billion dollars” in revenue, considering the high participation rate and high revenue in many MMO’s and virtual worlds."
