will there be an answer as to how and why ressource locations were altered and some added?
Probably because there was more land, and it needed to be redistributed to make it more fairly.
I don't understand all the fuss though, it's not with just this update, it has happened a few months ago also (some ores that were not found on ark before were introduced).
True it changed at one point in my mining zone. One ore I never found popped up and i started to get it regularly. Though now its not only 1 but like 4-5 different ores/enmatters I never got before in my zone. Thats not only some minor change, but a big one. This should result in a big market manipulation too, as i get less Arkadian ressources but lotsa different stuff. I allready sold some veda for 10% more then before the VU because of that. And imo any changes that result in a market manipulation and a change of prices should be in the changelog, or one could think of foul play.
I'm pretty sure veda rose because people were crafting more guns. I don't think the A-team had anything to do with the mining changes other than adding resources to the islands. It's the balancing manager and whoever else on Mindark's side that's changing the universal ores location and their drop rates. At least that's what I believe.
If you guys aren't happy with your current "areas"... try something new. I wander all over the planet, I can't imagine being tied to a small piece of ground.
Edit: after mining over the planet, I've found a ton of changes in the ore maps. Notably, the windy isles are now full of other materials, and angelic grit is now the most abundant resource on the planet, yay! (not).
Overall, mining return was good but a lot of universal ores and not very many ark ores, unfortunately.
Guys, can someone please give me coords of these new areas for events? trying to find them, here in update info, there is only text "treasure hunting time"
Hi Baba, you can find the locations of the event areas by rt clicking on screen > system > event list. Navigate to arkadia, and the 5 new event areas are titled
IFN commando training grounds
And then there are 4 "Event Area"s
Select one, then click the little "track" icon at the right. This will show a map of the area with the market at the terminal. It also gives coords.
now we need them slim high heel leather boots as you know it =)
