    Hi Dev team

    The banning of vehicles from Celeste Quarry is a pleasant move. However, many used to spawn their QUADs there and take off. The Quarry being such a busy place, could I suggest sticking two large landing pads nearby for players to spawn their QUADs on. Take note that the landing pad has to be big enough to allow the QUAD to spawn. Both Cyrene and Calypso have tiny landing pads that QUADs cant spawn on.

    Actually, see Kittens idea below.

    Cheers
    Bjorn

    That will cause same lag as before I fear, because ppl will not use it as landing/starting platform, they will use it as presentation area if it is too close to Quarry. And if it is not close to Quarry -> We have enough start and landing pads at the firebases. By example, I always use the one at dauntless when going up to space.

    The current change with removing vehicles from Quarry was long awaited from most ppl. Good move from A-team, thx.

    I think they should add in a mothership in the sky just under the entry point with a landing pad on it and a televator to ground at the quary XD

    then ppl can televator up to the mothership spawn quad and launch quickly and when landing same thing fast landing and BOOM into quary

    Thats a bloody great idea! A symbolic MS near the Quarry with a Teleport inside. Essentially the Main Hangar of the MS is active, like on the real ones. Players can Teleport from Quarry to the Main Hangar of the Mothership, then fly out and you are just below the space boundary! Thats brilliant Kitten! It would be easy to do as all the work is already done! The MS Main hangar is already designed, the teleport can be activated. The shell of the MS can be placed in the appropriate spot way above the quarry. We dont need a landing pad, it solves all the issues. Chris, please make this happen!

    Sounds great, but would't you rather see what Ark Studios comes up with themselves instead of just reusing generic EU stuff?

    Well we already have landing pads at celeste south I think, why don't the taxi service just operate from there. There is so much real-estate in this game... why must everything be situated at the quarry??

    There we go :D, I would rather suggest taxi service use this location ...

    Could rather make this location as part of the starter quests to tell new ppl where to go if and when they require a taxi to different planets.

    Well they can use the Arkadian Mothership shells already hovering above the Firebase academies. They are unique to Arkadia.

    Hi Guys

    I have added some notes to the whiteboard in the office :)

    Regards,

    I don't see why they could not have just moved the parameters for the quads etc to land out on the dirt and just stay out of the center of the quarry. Seems since you cannot land/spawn anywhere near quarry has become somewhat desolete. People used to hang out there to sell as in Twin Peaks. Now it just seems a little too quiet, Unless of course it's because the holidays are approaching. And yes as far as landing and launching pads. the ones on cyrene are find to land on but you cannot spawn your vehicle on there. There look nice but they just don't work. Guess the designers didn't TEST that out.......... grrrrrr

    Hmm I would be severely disappointed if this came to pass, we will end up with the same situation as you have in caly where everything happens in Twin Peaks. It used to be that Twin Peaks was where miners sold ore/enmat and also where you went for flights, to sell your loot you would go to Port Atlantis.

    I guess you mean the landing pads and celeste?? ... it is possible to spawn your quad on them. But I have to agree its not easy, took me two tries to get mine spawned properly.

    I reiterate, please stop adding more stuff to the quarry. Lets use some of the multitude of great other locations in Ark, rather then having everyone focussed in one area. This is 90% up to the community but also if new players are tought the specific locations in the menu and some issues like the extreme lag in celeste harbour is addressed ppl will use these locations more often.

    At the end of the day its up to us to decide what locations we want to use and those we don't. Please fellow Arkadians wake up and lets not spoil Ark as we did calypso.
