  1. Any ETA on next update?

    I am excite for the next update!
  2. The Winter Festival and Decorating the Tree Art Contest

    So we recently had freezing rain here it covered all the tree branches (and everything else really) in ice. I tried to draw it, but failed. Turns out drawing ice is hard on a smartphone. So here's a festive Ent
  3. Seasonal Badge and a new Community event!

    The leaves of the trees turn from a bright green to shades of orange, yellow and brown, before falling to the ground in nice big piles. The children loved this time of year, playing hide and seek around the village and in the nearby woods. The weather cools after a hot summer and food is plentiful, whats not to like? Elu had just come back from fishing for the day, a good haul slung over her shoulder on her return to camp. On her way back she had noticed something odd. A man was standing at the treeline near the woods. There was nothing particularly scary about this man, in fact she recognized him as Adahy. He worked at the eatery, cooking the fish she brought back. Elu thought he might be foraging for herbs or berries out here, but Adahy just stood there staring into the woods. Elu approached to get his attention and make sure he was alright, but before he could reach him he walked into the trees. That was a weird encounter, to be sure, but Elu wasn't worried. She'll check with him when they return to the village. Further down the road, up a hill that overlooked the lake she was just fishing in, she noticed some people walking out of the treeline towards the lake shore. What could be happening? Her curiosity caught up with her and she stopped to watch them a moment. To her surprise they were walking into the water. Elu grew concerned, as she thought it was a bit late in the day to be going for a swim. She left her fish hanging from a nearby tree to retrieve on her way back and made her way through the woods towards the crowd entering the lake. When she arrived, she found a macabre scene. Nuggets of men and women, and of all ages, were floating along the shoreline. She recognized many of them from the village. Almost all of her friends and family were floating before her, lifeless. At that moment a noise broke her from the scene, leaves crunching in the treeline behind her. She turned quickly to see Adahy exiting the treeline, like the others before. Slowly, Adahy walked, almost as if in a trance. His gaze was fixed on the lake, and before Elu could say anything or attempt to stop him she noticed him mumbling something. Quietly, as if whispered by a dying man, Adahy repeated his phrase as he stepped into the water, "the pat-... commin-... he patch is commin-..." and with that the water overtook him and silence fell around Elu.
  4. Patch Notes: V 0.0.11 (Hudson)

    Jumped in to test the newest patch and I noticed some performance related things. My 6-year-old laptop, m14x r1, the cheapest of the cheap Alienware laptops from 2010, ran the previous patch with ease but now chugs along with this updates. Upon opening Universim on my desktop PC I was met with the sound of my 980ti Strix screaming away with coil whine. It stopped after a couple of minutes so that might be a hardware issue on my end as opposed to the game pushing it or something. As far as the new patch, still playing it as I'm typing this. Fishing boats are awesome, and I love how the small lakes and oceans have merged. Was hoping something like that would happen sooner or later.
  5. Curved Monitors?

    I have a curved monitor. I don't really notice the difference much. Its curved so slightly that it might as well just be a normal monitor. Now, if I had 3 of them lined up in a row I'd definitely notice a difference.
  6. Top 5 Steam Games?

    You mean top 5 most played or just our top 5 favorites - well I guess it might be the same thing huh? 1. Skyrim 2. Borderlands 2 3. Fallout 4 4. Dark Souls III 5. Dragon's Dogma
  7. Let's talk about No Man's Sky!

    Can't say anything that hasn't already been said by a bunch of people. But from my perspective, the game was fun for about 10 hours. I have a total playtime of 18 hours on it. Explored planet after planet, cataloged things, discovered things, good stuff. What bored me was the lack of responses from the wildlife. They either only squeaked at you and ran, or tried to kill you. All alien life might have well been interchangeable, nothing really made them stand out except their appearance. Space battles was fun the first couple times, so maybe space ship battle simulator with exploratory elements would have been a better title. I didn't get too much into the hype before the game came out. Only saw the one trailer and that's about it. It just looked good. Then it came out and it, well, did look good for a bit. It just feels like it's still in alpha. Don't release Universim in alpha or beta please. Full game with tons to do and lots to discover and explore. That's the only beet of feedback I can add to this conversation really.
  8. Actually, come to think of it, yeah I did play the tutorial. I was wondering if it changed how to assign nuggets to jobs since I couldn't find that and thought the tutorial would help me, then I found the issue. Well then, righto. Thank you
  9. Unable to place water pump (ALPHA V 0.0.10) What client version you downloaded: PC Standalone Client What part of the system was the bug/issue encountered in: In game bug. Are you able to replicate the problem: Yes, but not 100% of the time. Detailed description of the problem: Started Universim and placed epicenter in between two water sources. Went to build a water pump right off the bat and was unable to place the pump at either water source. Attempted to circle the source to no avail. Was able to build other buildings, such as a well. Unsure if its a placement bug with the epicenter or the water pump itself. Started up FRAPS and recorded a few seconds to show.
  10. Righto, so I just found this thread on forum badge and I can't actually remember how much I kickstarted for. I know it wasn't mammoth, but... Hold on, let me dig through my emails. AH, it was $100.
