Planet Cyrene VU Notes - February 7th 2017

Planet Cyrene VU Notes - February 7th 2017

New Additions


- Lazidol Spawn Area
-- Lazidol now has new spawn area that should allow him to be hunted without any unreachable issues. Both him and the Low Shaman are now on a coastal shelf near the Rookie Training Area.
- Sky Labs has been moved to be more away from Risen Island. This should resolve any mining issues that have occurred on Risen Island.

Changes

- Outdoor Hub Coat
-- This coat should now be able to be registered via the Proving Grounds Entrance.
-- After registration, there is a small chain quest that will award an Achievement and setup players for part two of this series.

- Many areas have had undergone visual changes as well as increased optimization:

-- Risen Island
-- High Desert Wave Event Area
-- A.R.C. Staging Area
-- Duster Hazing Station

- Dire Weed Chain Mission
-- All stages of this mission are now available from the new Kill Point Terminals available across 15 locations on Planet Cyrene.
-- If a player is already on these missions and cannot see their kills or kill points interacting with one these terminals should update the mission information to show them.
-- All stages of this mission will now auto complete as soon as the last creature is killed and you will not be required to return to the terminal, except to pick up the next mission.
-- Provided all these changes work as intended, these changes will be rolled out for every other chain mission on Cyrene, along with the majority of A.R.C. faction missions.

- Rookie Training Area
-- The Mang Changs near Rookie Training Area should no longer be able to be tamed.

- Oil Spawner at Duster Hazing Station PvP
-- We've continued to work with MindArk and make adjustments to get the oil to spawn correctly.

- Getting Battle Ready
-- This mission has been working correctly on the test server, however, it's not active on live and that makes it appear as if this is bugged. This mission will be active again shortly after this VU.

- Sky Lab Platformer
-- The item used to activate this mission has been altered from 1x Imperium Key Cube -> Imperium Cube.

- The map has been updated to accurately reflect all the changes.

Known Issues
- The dialogue for mission: Sky Labs Platformer does not reflect that the currency item has changed, this will be corrected in the Mini Patch.
- Support weapons are not currently working properly, this is a platform issue.
- The Spear MK. III is difficult to maneuver, this is being looked into.
- The Spear destroyed model becomes invisible, this issue is being looked into.
- All Cyrene vehicles (P.I.G.V., Spear, Lancer, Dragonfly) have default sounds, this will be addressed in a future patch.
- Some Quality Ratings information in blueprint book: A.R.C. is incorrect, and this issue is still being looked into.

Further clarification regarding ComPet release schedule

Further clarification regarding ComPet release schedule

We understand that the recent news about delayed Compet Deed payouts was unexpected and that this may have caused a certain amount of inconvenience.


We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we assure Deed Holders that the prioritization of the development of core gameplay systems over non-gameplay systems was considered necessary for the fully-rounded development of ComPet as a competitive and well-crafted product. We are currently working hard to develop these systems so that ComPet Deed Holders may receive payouts as soon as possible. We also want to clarify that the deed revenues are being accumulated and have done so since the launch of the game.

We also appreciate that ComPet Deed Holders wish to receive timely and relevant information regarding ComPet development. Newsletters will therefore be sent on a regular basis to Compet Deed Holders to ensure that you are kept informed of future developments.

Best regards,
Klas Moreau
CEO MindArk PE AB

Hogglo Diablos Return

Hogglo Diablos Return!

There have been confirmed sightings of aggressive Hogglo Diablos in the PVP zone southeast of Fort Argus!


It seems the Diablo-breeding desperado “Gareth Tamer” is back in business. The criminal is widely believed to be responsible for the Diablo attack last year after escaping CDF custody.

Colonists hunting in the PVP zone are advised to come well armed and with supporting mercenaries due to the lawlessness of the area.

Battle Simulator Where All Avatars are Equal

Battle Simulator

#2 Where All Avatars are Equal!

Activities in Entropia Universe usually require a certain amount of planning and preparation. This takes time. Furthermore, it can be difficult for new players to compete with veterans who have accumulated high skill levels and equipment.


The Battle Simulator is for everyone and will be instantly accessible via the Entropia Universe user interface (UI). Avatars will compete under identical conditions: standard ‘simulator’ skill levels and weapons/ammo are applied upon entering the simulator. It’s stripped-down, old-fashioned arcade action where finishing and getting the fastest time is all that counts. Only your reflexes and strategies will determine your place on the leaderboard and the prizes you win.

The Battle Simulator will go platform-wide on the planned version update (VU) on February 28, 2017.

Battle Simulator Instance Coming Soon!


A platform-wide Battle Simulator prototype will be available from your Avatar's UI in the upcoming VU.

We’ll be bringing you more information on a regular basis, so stay tuned for the next update!
