State-of-the-Universe-Address-2015
Feb 27, 15 - 5:29 PM - by Bertha Bot
State of the Universe Address 2015

Greetings Entropians,

First of all, everyone here at MindArk would like to extend thanks for your participation and support of Entropia Universe throughout the past year. Our plans for 2015, outlined below, have been designed to provide an increasingly exciting and rewarding real-cash economy gaming experience for you. But first I’d like to briefly review some of the improvements to Entropia Universe that were accomplished in 2014.


2014 Highlights
Social Interface Redesign
Early in the year the chat and messaging interfaces were completely redesigned to improve communication and encourage enhanced social interaction between participants. New features included offline messaging, custom chat channels, avatar profiles, and much more. Subsequent version updates refined the new interface and provided additional features.

Infrastructure & Performance
Ongoing improvements were made to the Entropia Universe platform infrastructure, including hardware and software upgrades and enhanced development tools. Starting late in 2014 and continuing early this year, our development team conducted several stress tests in order to profile performance and identify areas for improvement. Valuable data was gathered from those tests, which will help to improve client and server performance moving forward in 2015.

New Player Experience
Ongoing improvements to the New Player Experience were implemented with every Version Update and partner release during 2014. These efforts will continue to be a top priority during 2015 in order to maximize the marketing efforts of MindArk and the planet partners.

Webshop
MindArk implemented a web-based shop available on EntropiaUniverse.com where participants are able to purchase various items and consumables, including special Starter Packs ideally designed for new participants.

Creature Control System
A fun new feature allowing avatars to assume the form of various creatures was implemented in the form of Creature Control Capsules. This system is also available to planet partners to help enhance storyline events with controllable creatures and NPCs. Capsules for additional creatures will continue to be added in future Version Updates.

Taming
The long awaited return of the taming system was unveiled last fall, sporting new features along
with former functionality. Stable estates were also auctioned during 2014, and will soon provide services and enhancements for pets.

Support
With the closing of MindArk’s office in Mexico during 2014, support operations were relocated back to the Gothenburg headquarters. This change has resulted in a better overall support experience for our customers, with faster response times and much improved support ticket satisfaction ratings.

PVP Improvements
Several improvements to PVP interaction were implemented in 2014, including the disabling of auto-arget functionality in PVP areas. Additional tweaks and improvements are planned for mid-2015.

Sounds on Planet Arkadia
Feb 27, 15 - 4:04 PM - by Bertha Bot
Hello everyone!

As some of you already know, I am the dude responsible for the sound on Planet Arkadia. For those who didn’t know; now you know.

With the upcoming Version Update (VU) there will be allot of sounds. Ambient sounds (check out the coast, the desert and the arctic) and almost every mob has sounds (known who doesn’t have it yet is Yrrijak and Wombana). Allot of old sounds that didn’t work before (or ceased to work) will work now. And yes, same...

Introduction:

This is the Cyrene Dynamic Upgrade Map. This will show the progression of the different land areas based on player activity here on Planet Cyrene. As the areas progress through their levels they will undergo upgrades or unlocks based upon their level. If any particular are stagnates or has low progression there will be some side effects in that particular area as well.

So, in short, if you want an area to change:

The Core - Robot Mayhem #3
Feb 25, 15 - 8:30 PM - by Bertha Bot
Recent intelligence indicates that the robots may have located another RX cache on Eudoria. Activity in the Hadesheim Crater indicates that the robots are currently preparing a major excavation, which gives us little time to prepare a proper response.

The teleportation pods used to enter the Core previously have been in secure storage since the last expedition, safely out of range of any potential self-destruct trigger signals. The robots had found ways to circumvent our jammers, but Sgt. Quintana reassures me that his team at Minopolis has been able to upgrade the jamming devices in such a way that they should provide at least a few days of access to the Core once again.

Since time is short, CDF staff will require assistance to accomplish the necessary objectives in time to prevent robot access to the RX caches. Once again, we turn to the brave colonists of Calypso for assistance. Similar to earlier campaigns, rewards are being offered by the CDF for the salvage of Robot Data Storage Units from the Core.

The DSU recovery effort will begin on Friday, February 27. Brave colonists wishing the enlist in the effort should report to Sgt. Quintana’s EST dropship located in Minopolis.

Good luck out there!
/Brig. General de Sousa

Humble Pie – Gold Rush - Hunting Division 2014 – Official Statement​


Firstly, my apologies for the time it’s taken to respond to concerns posted here on Arkadia Forum regarding the keys for the Aakas Instances. Until an investigation was completed I was unable to comment.

I can confirm, and hence eat some humble pie that my advice was wrong. The value of the keys was not passed through into the loot of the instances as it was supposed to do. It was...

CDF News
Feb 20, 15 - 3:14 PM - by Bertha Bot
CDF scientists have released some results from their investigation of the recent Hogglo attacks on several settlements across Calypso. It appears that Gareth's role in the attacks was merely an attempt to achieve notoriety.

Analysis of encrypted information found in Gareth's files points at "failed subjects and mentions "insufficient mass", "anomalous gene code" and that some failed subjects exhibited "inadequate aggression factors". Some of the failed subjects were labeled as "rejected" and "discarded".

CDF considers the investigation concluded in the absence of further information.
