    Heya,

    I visited the Desert Oil Rig today and was looking for free oil...too bad it did not spawn any oil.

    Does it spawn around this...gigantic something driller ? How much does it spawn ? How often ?

    And most important...why doesnt it spawn any oil ? ;(

    Would be very easy to catch oil..as noone is there...except for some lvl6, lvl10 and lvl21 oratans.

    Why is noone there ? Why is there no oil ? grrrrr

    Yes, MA forgot to turn it on this last update for the A-Team. From what I have heard, MA may remember to turn it on this next update which will be in September.

    hmmm

    Yeah I was very disapointed today as well standing there for over an hour wondering why nothing would happen in this PVP zone.. I arrived from calypso to explore and see this flying over so thought it looked cool, it's just a shame that they don't think to give you an in game message whilst in that area that it's not working yet rather than wasting an hour of my life just standing there :-( little things like this could improve this game loads.

    But rather than making a new thread, are them oratan mobs sorry if spelled incorrect available on an iron mission ? I am new to arkadia so not sure and if so can you please post a location, im not lazy and will start checking the forum now but i only just joined here as wel so might as well ask.

    And Im Gavin nice to meet you all.

    The oil rig is on manual operation only, which means players have to drop oil there. :)

    You can find IFN missions at any IFN terminal, located outside command posts at firebases and at various other places like the quarry.

    Also worth mentioning, I think, that the oratan missions include all three types (original, slasher and miner) and work on a point system; i.e. bigger oratan are worth more. I think this is a very interesting development that ought to be followed up; I like the idea of being able to select bigger mobs and not having to sit for hours plinking away at bottom-level versions of the relevant mob if you want to be economical in your mission running.

    The same applies to ostelok, BTW, except that in this case the mutated ones don't count.

    since the Partner Update been delayed I doubt it's fixed so you need to wait until the Planet Partner update.

    Not that I'm aware of. As I understood it, it has to wait till the Planet Partner update, sometime this month, to be switched on.

    "Sometime this month"

    Gotta love MA. They could turn this on with one of the mini-patches that they are so proud of being able to do, yet they never have.

    They can't do them yet. It'll be next year when they get that capability.

    An official already answered the question a couple of posts up, but I can tell you this, a lot of thieves and thugs are anxiously waiting around the rig poised if you will.
