    Today in soc chat we were talking about a decent spawn of thorio, and then thorio temple came up, and we all said it's a shame that it was gone. I would really like something like that on Arkadia.

    For those of you unfamiliar with thorio temple, this is how it was (pre vu10).


    The was a temple (first not even on the map), just a few stones and an altar in the beginning where there were spawns of thorio (and their kin). As noobs we went there and felt a sense of achievement getting there (it was pretty hard after all). But the fun part was that when we tried half a year later (too see how much stronger we became). The few stones and the altar got expanded with a row of sacred(?) stones towards the altar. Half a year later the thorio build some buildings/forts nearby.

    I think it was great fun to see the area evolve over time, i guess there was a storyline to it as well, but i completely missed it (and probably so did MA back then :)). I was really excited every few months when i went there to see what and if anything had changed.

    I would really like to see arkadia evolve like that (in some parts) over the years as well, it really makes you feel like something is actually happening on the planet (and makes a whole lot more sense then: hey look there are another 10 million robots sudenly on the planet because we have an event).

    yep other then the Thoria temple I would just like some stuff all over the planet to discover, some with a story and some without one. Just something to run across unexpectedly. We had those on Calypso, but now they are gone and I miss them.

    So, abandoned buildings and towns, caves, weird rocks and trees, bridges, temples, crashed space ships even skeletons of some ancient mobs. And with the story behind Arkadia so far there is a good chance we will get some nice stuff.

    Planet Arkadia is designed to evolve as players get involved with the world. So there's certainly chances to see these kind of development/upgrade.

    P.S: I do miss the Thorio temple too though I used to get my ass kicked very badly. :p

    Yes this is one thing calypso should of kept at any cost but no.
    They took out everything to do with the history and lore of their planet.
    You should definately do something like this David & I'm glad there will be :).

    Last time I was at the temple I got to stand on the altar keeping the area clear so socmates could arrive safely with a little room for tp chip error. The thing I miss not getting to explore was the hole leading under the temple. I was getting excited waiting for them to do something with that.

    Keep following the story because it's really getting interesting now.
    The different groups (Archeology Society, Military, Scientists etc) have their own agendas and will need the players to help them.

    Yes having things like this would be great. Temples that need items to unlock their mysteries :)

    LOL!
    Thought such things like abandoned temples are the main theme of Arkadia.
    Ruins, destroyed factories and fortresses, abandoned settlements and cities, hidden laboratories ... etc.

    I can't wait to explore.

    Here's an idea that I think would be neat. When exploring in the wilderness, there are hidden ruins in some spots on the planet. When the first colonist finds the hidden ruins, a global chat message would announce this. The coordinates would be then given to the authorities and they would set up a new TP and dig site there in the future.

    Shhhh your going to ruin our master plan :)

    See if we play really dumb, maybe the developers of Arkadia will slip up and say/reveal a bit of info ...hehe (worth a shot i guess).

    So just play along....
    ;)

    That is an awesome idea. Could go right into the "HOF new discovery" section. That would be really cool for us explorer types.
