    will be able to drive and fly in Underworld

    Caves
    8 coins to have more Caves and missions

    Blue Prints
    Local Blue Prints hope to be more likely to drop in the future MA hoping to resolve "sooner rather than later"
    over 800 Blue prints so far

    40 new swords on Tuesdays VU able to be looted

    New BLP long range weapons in January

    new weapons to come when treasure hunting starts

    Smuggler Unlimited versions looted only items March VU

    New FAPs soon maybe Tuesday (dependent on MA approval)

    Single seater hoverpod Vehicles with a reasonable TT possible release in January, texture and colouring also customisation bumpers etc

    4 wheel drive vehicle, maybe!

    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

    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 [​IMG]

    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
