Omw, just in case
Looking forward to cheese mining...!
downloading the moon!
oooh, can't wait to get home
Already liking the Stargate teleporters Will take some time to explore...
At first, a big THANK YOU to the team -- and hats off for delivery ahead of schedule!
Watch out for pirates & griefers when you go there thou
Looks great, im thrilled, cant wait to go explore this
No new items, BPs, ores discovered yet. Is this update just the moon and the interesting stuff comes in next update?
for 5% tax there has to be some mu in loot to offset it,but that isnt the case and the "high level "mobs are quite lowlevel in reality,
will there be any mobupgrades ?
I love that the Kill missions on the Moon gives you maturity options and then marks that maturity locations on the map for you !
Hope this is a future feature for all planet missions.
Seems that the only way off is to leave by quad right into PVP and a mess of pirates. No TP directly to Ark, can't be summoned to MS (or so I'm told) and probably can't TP onto a MS either though I've not tested that. The Auction is Ark auction so loot could be listed there for sale but as for taking loot to any other planet, forget it.
No its not, it Arkadia Moon Auction.
In addition, when you leave Arkadia, you are now also put into lootable space at the moon. I contacted live support and was told that the PP had set it that way. Dylan, can you confirm this was your intention to put anyone leaving BOTH Arkadia and the moon to be in lootable space???
Certainly feels nice to have some more open space to explore than the domes or AU.
Mountains can be a bit of a pain on foot though. Having said that it does feel like there's almost always some sort of foot path somewhere cutting through a mountain range.
Mobs have been easy to avoid while mining. For the most part anyway. May actually take a few shots at some of the critters out there later. Pretty low agro range and at least some of them are pretty slow as well. Even the low maturities can hit you for a bit when naked. Kinda like AU mobs in that regard.
Not blown away but mildly interested to see some more.
Oh and thanks for the welcome hof...
You sure about that? I got Ark auction when I clicked on AH terminal on the moon
Moon looks interesting it seems just a bit like Monria but actually much better - I will enjoy exploring it.
When I flew up from Ark ended straight away into PVP space in the middle of a battle between a Starfinder and two quads.
I flew straight to Ark SS which seemed a long way away - I did not feel confident about approaching the moon as I could see several red triangles.
I thought I had to fly to space so map would reload & moon would appear.
When I flew back to Ark & was chased down & killed by a pirate - bad luck Morgoth, I don't carry loot into space I am sure you felt all your wasted ammo was in a good cause.
Maybe you felt it was - I know of 3 players who were also attacked. The moon is wonderful opportunity to loot & grief it seems.
I just realised, I had a heap of shrapnel not yet converted to ammp - so you did loot me. Nothing worse than be looted by a pirate who pretends he is not. A pirate I would put it down to my lack of care - but a hypocrite, who steals the equivalent of RL funds while pretending he is a "good guy" that is a different thing altogether
Just getting to a mothership to get safe passage is going 2 be a bit problematical at present
Yup you leave Ark or the moon you end up in pvp at moon with pirates all over you. You can't be summoned from ark to a mothership anymore. You can't safely move loot from the moon to Ark or from Ark to anywhere else.
I just TTed everything and left. I won't be back to either Ark or the moon until they fix this.
Farewell to my favourite planet. I hope they get this sorted soon.
I attempted to fly back to Arkadia was destroyed three times - reviving on Varyag, in the end Disi moved her into the problematical area & placed a mob ball between me and a pirate, enabled me to get back to Ark. Thanks Disi
Maybe actions of this nature are something other MS owners should consider - I saw 2 quads leave Kronan heading for the moon, they did not make it. Free warps to the moon are just bringing food to a pirate feast at present.
I think all players who want the moon to succeed should come together and work out some strategies to protect & help players.
Just a small clarification here, quads seen leaving the Kronan that were shot down, were those of her crew trying to help defend the spawn point from pirates and give folks time to get away.
All of our free warp customers were delivered safely.
They may have had problems leaving later, but when we started these warps we had no more idea than you of the difficulties that would be encountered, namely absence of an SS for ships to dock and therefore enable summoning, and use of TP, as well as the single spawn point for both planet and moon, instead of safe space at planet SS, like any other planet. I would be very surprised if this was the intention of the Ark Devs, when entry to the moon was a full 360 degrees.
That said Kronan and Normandie spent 12 hours yesterday doing free warps alternately. As soon as the severity of the risk caused by the single spawn point was realised they spent their rest hour between warps trying to defend the spawn point from pirates, with help from a few brave quad and equus owners. Sorry guys I did not think to write down names in all that chaos, but your help was appreciated.
I've also seen a report that its no longer possible to summon from Ark if the ship is in the SS safe zone. Is this true?
