    [h=3]Controlled Mobs[/h]In the last release, a new feature was introduced which allows MindArk and planet partner official avatars to morph into one of the many creatures found in Entropia Universe and interact with participants. This new system creates possibilities for interesting events and unique content. In the patch deployed on Wednesday, support for shared loot was also added so that participants of all levels can take part when controlled mobs are used in special events.
    MindArk has provided strict guidelines for the use of these special controlled mobs to ensure that our participants’ enjoyment of Entropia Universe is not affected in a negative way. This includes avoiding interfering with participants located in shop containers or revival areas, or who are crafting or interacting with auctioneers or terminals.
    Please note that officials have no control over the loot received when controlled mobs are defeated; the normal loot calculation for the mob is performed in all cases. In future partner releases, mobs created especially for this new system will be introduced and may include special event-oriented items in their loot. The distribution of such items would also be handled by the usual loot algorithm, not by officials.
    We hope you enjoy this fun new feature of Entropia Universe and look forward to our partners employing it the create more engrossing and exciting events. Ultimately we plan to extend a skill-based version of the controlled mobs system to participants which could also be very interesting.

    Didn't Arkadia staff use the controlled mobs too after the last VU when they were introduced (not mentioned in the VU notes from MA or any PP, but just showing up in the game like on Calypso when Kim was operating a Warrior Bot - or something like that)? I thought I saw it mentioned in a post somewhere, but don't recall whether it was here or at another forum.

    I'm interested in knowing which controlled mob(s) were used ... please say it wasn't the cute purple Nusul. :p

    Haven't seen controlled mobs here yet. In the oratan events, Ark devs have been able to manually spawn the bosses.

    Yes controlled mobs have been seen on Caly.

    Thank you KJ ... I kinda think now that something was said at another forum, but I'm also thinking too that the controlled mobs haven't shown up on Arkadia as yet either. I saw where it was mentioned that they were on ROCKtropia too, so I really don't know what the extent of this is at the moment, other than what was shown in videos regarding those on Calypso that showed up 4 days (Feb 22nd) before MA announced them yesterday
    Feb 26th).

    EDIT:

    I found this post in the User Controlled Mobs thread started by a player on the 22nd at the Calypso Forum where Neil Stockton said that he saw user controlled mobs on Arkadia, so I will ask Neil to report here what he saw so that we know what mobs were used ... just curious, and I didn't see anyone posting about it here, unless I missed it.

    Oh wait ... LOL ... just saw another post by Neil on the 23rd in the Calypso Forum thread where he said that he was playing with an Aakas controlled Statue. Why aren't there any threads or posts about all that here at the Arkadia Forum?

    Yes the A-team did some controlled mobs this past weekend. I saw an oratan miner and an Aakas statue at the drill rig and an oratan at the quarry. It was just a little demo, not an event or anything. The Aakas statue gave 19 ped Arkoins.

    I simply hope, that Arkadia Devs use that nice tool how it should be and do awesome events.

    Especially with the announced implementation for special mobs only for this.

    Would love to see like a 30 meters Dehera Statue to enrage close to Aaakas controlled by a Dev and stuff like this.

    Thanks for the info Neil, and I have no doubts whatsoever that the Arkadia devs will utilize this new feature in a good way, and look forward to seeing some of these user controlled mobs in the future.
