Well we're now just over one solid month into Alpha 2. I think it's high time to do a quick recap on how things are going with Eyes & Ears.
Starting out as a mere idea in Pre-Alpha and fleshing out in mid-2018, the idea of a rescue focused organization was something I never thought I'd find myself doing in Dual Universe.
In the early days of Alpha 1, Eyes & Ears made it's first official Alpha-1 rescue, Glavies. Throughout Alpha 1, the organization would answer a handful of distress calls from solo players that crashed their ships and were unable to repair or had simply run out of fuel.
The highlight of Alpha 1 would turn out to be the Ministry organizations craft The Rex Liberata having run out of fuel with Bramse, PirateTrader, and WhiteMEat on board. Their anti-gravity craft was brought to a stop a little over 50 SU from Alioth and while a flight to them would have been easy enough, NovaQuark was intent on having them rolling ASAP. With Stormeyes assistance and some fancy teleportation, The Rex Liberata was refueled and it's crew were once more on their way.
Further rescues would be performed in the lead up to Alpha 2. The week after Alpha 2's launch, two back to back rescues would be performed.
The first rescue was simply returning a grounded tester to a construct they respawned from in Alioths orbit.
After some time spent debugging their craft, a second call came in from a tester flying to another planet. Unfortunately due to problems out of their control, they were unable to make it all the way with the fuel they had on hand so more was flown out to them and they were able to safely land.
Through these activities during tests, Eyes & Ears - Search And Rescue has successfully run 14 rescues in Alpha 1, and thus far, two rescues in Alpha 2. Our membership has also ticked up to eight members. Additionally, two organizations, Vulture Cooperation, and DYNAMIC AEROSPACE INDUSTRIES have formed partnerships while Albatross Inc in discussion with us. Eyes & Ears has also tentatively acquired a launching platform in Tortuga City. Details haven't been ironed out but we hope this location will make a great first location off Alioth from which we can launch rescue operations.
If your organization would like to form a partnership with us, feel free to get in touch with me privately and we can discuss things.
Alpha 2 is looking bright so far even though I've been personally hampered with hardware issues and have been unable to participate in recent testing. Just because I am down, however, does not mean the rest of the team is out! If you ever find yourself in trouble on the test server, feel free to enter the '911' channel. Since it's hard to see if anyone's actually listening, another option would be to head over to our Discord. Friendly chat is also always welcome so stop by and say hi, we don't bite!
Outside of testing, things have been quite mild. Earlier this summer, the Eyes & Ears website has seen a minor facelift in its design and a few things like parallax backgrounds were removed to simplify the design. The 'Our History' and 'Media' pages (with signs by @Geo, and an inspired logo by @Spiridon, thanks again both of you!) are both fairly new so check them out!
'Stats & Stories' has been filled out with 12 separate pieces of feedback by those who have used our service, check that out as well.
That about wraps things up.
All great things start small, and today Eyes & Ears accepts its fifth member, Dread Reaper!
This also marks our third rescue during the Alpha 1 phase. Yes, we are accepting rescue requests.
Also, during the alpha tests, players are free to view the ships flown by Eyes & Ears at District 1.
The small version is a dual environment, dual-purpose personnel transport and fuel resupplier that can be stowed in it's medium sided counterpart.
Its medium mothership is currently under construction, but the external hull and pilots room are already designed.
Eyes & Ears has partnered with DYNAMIC AEROSPACE INDUSTRIES to provide both our customers, and ourselves with quality craft, in addition to a launch point for Eyes & Ears to coordinate its rescues from. Additionally, they have opted to allow their customers to take advantage of our Emergency Pass subscription service which lets their customers rest assured that if trouble ever finds them, that we are never far behind.
Not to be outdone by our first affiliate Vulture Corp!
While the precise details of both are still contested given the lengthy timeframe leading to release, Eyes & Ears considers these very important steps in our role of rescuing stranded or wayward Noveans!
We are pleased to have both by our side and are eager to work with more.

Open Positions: https://eyesandearsrescue.org/join.html#table1-1z
A vast empires scout crashes on a moon. A trader runs out of gas in the middle of space. A miner needs a few more engines for a safe landing. A bounty hunter that got more than he bargained for. A pirate floating alone in space after an unfortunate encounter.
Who are you going to call? Your friends are too far away and no one nearby seems to want to help. Wouldn't it be nice if someone would respond to your call for repairing, refueling, refitting, or rescuing?
Luckily such an organization does exist.
Eyes & Ears: Search And Rescue is purpose made to deal with these problems and more. As long as you're not the worst that's out there, we'll come help; and yes, we'll even help a pirate. If you love helping others out in a sticky situation and want to get around others who enjoy the same, we might just have what you're looking for. Serious when we need to be, and laid back when we aren't, Eyes & Ears seeks to promote fun gameplay and a memorable experience in Dual Universe for us and all those we come in contact with.
