an entire persistent virtual environment - in outer space. Players
may choose to join a clan, join game sanctioned guilds or travel
as a single player. As well, each player begins the game with a
personal space ship and will be allowed to war enemy guilds, trade
between space stations, form strategic alliances, explore the universe
or spend their days socializing with other players. Most game interaction
will take place in space vs. land and there will be no NPCs in Destiny-Online.
Three races will exist: male and female Elorians, the Artanians
consist of only females and S'zazaks are all males. Characters are
fully customizable and will gain ranks depending on their race.
Destiny-Online, being developed by Mathias Muller, is in Alpha
stages and is projected to release early 2001. Currently the development
team is in the process of rewriting some of Destiny-Online's server
code and working on the game's video trailer. Following are some
frequently asked questions:
What makes Destiny-Online different from other online and
First of all, Destiny-Online is a mixture of two different genres,
namely massively multiplayer role playing games and space combat
simulations. There are also some elements of trading in the game.
Destiny-Online incorporates a completely new game structure. We
have programmed our own engine in order to support all of the functions
we needed. Destiny-Online is designed to be remotely patchable.
Every time you launch Destiny-Online, updates and patches will be
downloaded to your computer and installed automatically. That way
you will not have to worry about downloading patches. We will be
constantly adding new features to the game.
When will Destiny-Online be released to the public?
Destiny-Online is still being developed. In a few weeks from now
you will find a beta application on our web page.
How big is Destiny-Online's universe?
It is very big. It would take you some thousand years to cross the
entire universe in a fast ship. In fact: Warp is a joke - it doesn't
get you anywhere.
What if my friend is on the other side of the universe...
How will I get to her/him?
Right now the universe consists of three solar systems, a pulsar
which is used as a reference point for pilots and some other stellar
bodies. The universe itself is much bigger though, so alliances
can have their own space stations outside of those solar systems.
When you play Destiny-Online for the first time, you can choose
your starting position from one of those solar systems.
How many players will be allowed to occupy the universe?
There is no limit to how many people will be allowed in our universe
simultaneously. (There is no limit to the "real" universe either.)
How will the world support an unlimited amount of players?
New space stations and solar systems will be discovered in order
to account for the amount of people playing.
Will I have a hero? A main character that I create and choose
stats for? Will this character grow and gain stats?
Every player will have one character that can be customized. You
can choose between three different races. And for every race there
will be several different bodies to choose from. Every character
also has a rank.
Will I own ships or a ship?
Every character will own one spaceship. You will be able to use
it to fly to different space stations or planets in order to communicate
with other players.
How will I see? First person or 3rd person?
When you walk around with your character, you will see the world
in a 3rd person perspective. When you fly your space ship, it will
be first person.
Will my rank increase?
Depending on what civilization you choose, your rank will increase
either by fighting or by trading.
