So, another LU ‘remake’. . . (Or emulator)
This is Safe right? No hacking/Malware or that kind of stuff?
Aronwk here with some very exciting news! I’m sure alot of you know of the numerous projects that were made in order revive LEGO Universe.
Well the wait is no more! Darkflame Universe is here!
Darkflame Universe is an emulator for the popular LEGO MMOG, LEGO Universe, that closed in 2012. We strive to make this emulator as accurate as possible to how the game was during live, meaning we want all the features that the game had then to be working in this.
Because of that scope, we don’t have everything working just yet. You can currently play on the Venture Explorer and Avant Gardens, but no other worlds are available just yet. This means you can still smash Stromlings and other Maelstrom enemies, build quickbuilds, earn loot, complete achievements, socialize or just hang out like when the game was Live!
Alpha will start January 31st,2017. It…

Hmm, this looks very promising! 😀 Pretty dang cool that they have missions, npcs, and badguys! I wanted to try luni, but I thought that it looked like it wasn’t very good aside from the physics and online aspects.. I must try this when it’s out!
Server emulator. A lot of the guys making this are the people from the LUNI community who actually know how to code and didn’t want to put up with the drama. I’ve interacted with most (if not all) of those on the DLU team, and they’re all good people from my experience. So, yeah, no malware.
There’s no single up to date reference, so I’ll link a few of different things for those interested in reading about the rather painful history of LUNI and by extension DLU (note, this still isn’t 100% complete, but hopefully enough for reference):
That’s Good. . . Though just in case people should scan things as much as they can before installation. Hope they succeed! (And it would be nice to get Official LEGO group permission :P)
Having a good anti-malware tool is always a good idea.
As far as permissions go, that was one of those things in this whole debacle where “I think that happened, but I’m not really sure”. At any rate, there’s virtually no chance of going any further than that unless either: a) It gains traction and TLG sees it as a liability and sends a cease and desist or b) It gains traction and TLG sees it as a liability/opportunity and sends some guidelines, a rep, and a pat on the back or something (a la Online LUG but not really).
