The economy on Arkadia is not doing well. Most everything a miner or hunter comes across go straight to the TT which = big losses = people leaving. Here are the things I believe are wrong and need to be fixed ASAP to get Arkadia moving, that have not been discussed in other threads. 1. BPs need to get out. No BPs = worthless mining finds and animal oils, etc. BAD for crafters, bad for hunters, and bad for miners. Everyone loses PED. 2. I ve only found TWO mobs that drop any armor, and it is lowbie stuff. On other planets, virtually all mobs drop some armor sometimes. This is a good thing, as it sells at a markup, instead of the crap dropped by Arkadia mobs that goes straight to the tt. I ve hunted virtually everything from lvl 20-40, and have got 0 armor pieces after thousands of kills. 3. No unique draw. Yeah, I know, treasure hunting, but we are told that is a looooonnng way off. Calypso has big population, migration, tp from FOMA. Rocktropia has lots of loot dropping, tons of clothing BPs, and HELL. We need something to draw people too... 4. No big HOFs ever. It seems Calypso and Rocktropia are part of one loot pool, and we are in a different one. Few people = small loot pool = small HOFs. Not good 5. No shops. We have 0 land areas (besides the 2 presold ones), 0 malls, 0 shops. 6. Distance. Everything else that is popular is close together. (Calypso, FOMA and Rocktropia) People visit these places with relative ease. We are far far far away. Can t we at least be able to get MA to allow us to TP to one of the neutral stations or something to cut down on travel time? What do other people think? Am I wrong? Have other solutions? Lets see if we cant make things better.
