    At the dawn of a new era there were always going to be plenty of questions.
    It comes with the territory when you're trying to work things out!

    Some questions require some good old fashioned Treasure Hunting, while some questions require answers.

    I'll keep this post updated with both. Each time I update it, I'll post to say so.

    If you have any more questions, here's the place to ask!


    QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS




    • Where is the Arkoin Broker?
    Treasure Hunting time!



    • I want to buy more things with my Arkoins! I'm no reseller!
    First, people who buy and sell items for different prices are an important part of the economy, and you will never see us getting upset about colonists who do it with good manners. For someone trying to collect 15,000,000 Arkoins to buy a LA for example, trying to loot them all probably won't be the fastest way, so they might be quite happy to buy them from you!

    Second, this is only the first update in which Arkoin Brokers have existed. It's great to see you want more, and we certainly plan to offer more in future. So there's no harm in holding on to your Arkoins to see what's next, if that's what you'd prefer to do.



    • Arkadia announced three new mining amps - levels I, IV and VI with names like Terra Amp [level] 'Athena' (L). But I just saw a discovery for a Level VII Finder Amplifier 'Athena' (L) Blueprint (L). What's going on?
    'Athena' (the Greek goddess of knowledge and quite a few other things) is the name given to a range of mining amplifiers all over Entropia Universe. Those with 'Terra Amp' in their name (levels I, IV and VI) are exclusive to Arkadia, mainly using Arkadia-specific resources. All required resources for these three amps can be found on Arkadia.



    • If I save up 14 million Arkoins and then somebody buys the LA, what do I do?
    All six of the Land Areas will be eventually sold for Arkoins, so maybe you can buy the next one! Additionally, Arkadia Studios plans to continue to offer an exciting range of items that can be purchased with Arkoins, so even after the last Land Area is gone, there will probably be something else!​



    • There seems to be a limited quantity of each item in the Arkoin Brokers. What happens when they run out?
    Most items in Arkoin brokers will be automatically replenished. However, items being offered will change overtime.​



    • 15 million Arkoins is how many ped?
    We know, it gets confusing sometimes to work things out. So when doing the maths, we like to think of an Arkoin as a really awesome PEC with markup. A couple of months ago someone in the office said we need to sticky it, so we did and it's still on the whiteboard to this day:

    • Where are the five new event areas?
    Treasure Hunting time!




    • What do the new LAs look like?
    Here's a really good look at them by Larkin.

    hehehe

    Question: There was mention of a PvP fort area and also "missions involving the racetrack" on Entropiaplanets.com.

    I missed the mission broker whilst checking out the racetrack again last night, were there plans to implement these features that were hindered or did I look in the wrong place?

    Also: There is a hill on the racetrack that the (noob)Valkyrie struggles to climb (it stopped and I had to jump out), is this thanks to the new engine power settings? Are there any plans to ensure terrain can be traversed in all vehicles

    Thanks for the info, Cyrus. I was pretty confused about the Athena amps. I think it's brilliant to have the land areas purchased with Arkoins. Great move...

    Hi BB.

    The PVP event area has been added with this patch but it is not a conventional fort as on calypso. This is more a firebase converted to be usable for PVP.

    The Racetrack missions is something new we are working on and still in development.

    As for the one hill on the racetrack It is quite steep running it in one of the directions. Some of the faster and bigger land vehicles can do the track in that direction.
