3 main ruin sites to become fully functional city's
Dig sites to be transformed next year
new forts

New RL items will come
Arkadia Caps and T-shirt hope to be massed made.


LOT of marketing to follow the January VU especially for new players and the newbie system update.

New mob on Tuesday VU will be North of 8 coins, Medium level Mob Scarrya (not sure of spelling)


Forum Questions

DNA use maybe later next year but need to have private areas of land
will see new mobs available in new land areas.

More planets next year will give the players the best

Most current new development is on new player missions

Robots will come

Economy struggling but in time it will grow especially with each new VU

Expect as new planets come online for there to be players that move from planet to planet for events.

player numbers are key and we need more marketing

"Next year will be a land mark year for Entropia" "Bright future"

David's comments
Address new player issues
Q1-Q2 treasure hunting
Updates to townships

new weapon coming
combat FAPs
mixed spawns will come
No plans to make space vehicles MA own space

No new plans for Mind Force, but some more MF chips will drop in loot
Team MF Chips would be nice.

Chinese New year Gifts possible

David CEO Arcadia Interview Final Part 4

Sea Port would be a good idea, Q3-Q4 2012
and water based areas

Motor bikes, hover boards would be cool
Hover Pods will be fun and low cost great for racing

Loot is more spread out than on Calypso.
The RL loots like laptops are big loots but not shown in the HoF

Separate Auction history for each planet to see the local Mark Up, would be good.

Go Read the Background story


Looking forward to the VU


GREAT INTERVIEW

THANK YOU
DAVID
and Atlas Haven Radio

Really good interview, and very candid and open responses to the questions asked. Very informative and i was greatly impressed by the "straight up" nature of answers - it was a breath of fresh air .


Just a big thankyou to Ark Team, Dave Dobson and ofc Zume for this meeting at the quarry.

Very impressed

Thanks for this, no one has yet had the time or patience to post a similiar highlights thread on the Ark forum. Zume, who did the interview, has put up an edited version (with the music etc cut out leaving just the interview) to be downloaded HERE if anyone is interested in hearing it. The full show (a long one as David is a big talker ) is also online to just listen HERE.

Exciting times ahead on Arkadia
