    Misc
    Unwanted non-tradable items can now be disposed of by selling them to the Trade Terminal for zero PED.
    New Space Creatures
    Several new entities have been detected in local space sectors. Pilots are strongly advised to use caution when travelling between planets.

    • Locusta
    • Skyflail
    • Dymlek
    • Hermit
    • Dropship
    Deposits
    Initial deposit limit for all new accounts has been increased to 50 USD.
    Users who make their first deposit via 3Dsecure have their deposit limit increased to 3000 USD.
    Arrival Areas & Mentors
    Mentors with at least one graduated disciple can now teleport directly to the new player arrival areas from any teleporter, with the following conditions and limitations:

    • The mentor will be able to choose from either the Genesis new arrival area or an arrival area connected to the planet where the mentor is currently located (if applicable).
    • The mentor will be placed in the new arrivals instance with the highest population.
    • The mentor will not be able to bring any items into new arrivals area; the new arrivals default inventory will be loaded instead.
    • The mentor will have the ability to recruit new disciples while in the new arrivals area.
    • To exit the new arrivals area the mentor should use the teleporter in the new arrivals area, which will return the mentor to the same teleporter that was used to enter the new arrivals area.
    • When exiting the new arrivals area, the original avatar inventory will be reloaded.
    Creature Upgrades
    The following creatures have been upgraded with new models, textures and animations:

    • Osseocollum

    When joining a team, the private team channel is now activated by default, in place of the proximity voice channel. Users still have the ability to use the proximity channel by making use of the proximity chat button.
    Team voice and proximity voice channels no longer interfere with one another, and it is no longer possible to transmit to both channels simultaneously.

    • Motherships no longer become invulnerable for 5 minutes after aborting warp sequence.
    • It is no longer possible for two avatars to enter the Feffoid cave simultaneously.
    • An issue that caused avatars piloting vehicles to take damage when the vehicle was fired upon has been corrected.
    • An issue causing flickering animations when firing weapons in certain situations has been corrected.
    • An issue causing inadvertent teleportation to incorrect locations when using mindforce teleport chips has been corrected.
    • Coordinates in the radar HUD now display correctly.
    • An issue related to searches made within the Achievements interface which prevented the opening of other tabs has been corrected.
    • The sound effect heard when an avatar takes damage from a creature has been adjusted.
    • When coloring a vehicle, attached turrets are now also colored.
    • An issue making it possible to equip two armors to a shopkeeper simultaneously has been corrected.
    • The color of the Ninja Hood Jacket Black (M) & (F) items has been corrected.
    • The loading time of the Friend List has been reduced for participants with many friends.
    • Several instability issues causing client crashes in certain situations have been corrected.
    Known issues

    • The Previous Target and Next Target actions are sometimes slow and may freeze the UI in certain situations, especially when many possible targets are present.
    • Camera view can become jerky when using a tool while walking on inclines.

    I have been having issues with the installer as well. I got the message Error starting updater. Cancelled and tried again a few times, then noticed that it was downloading anyway, even though very slowly. The Error message is still there, but I have dragged it to the side.

    Its doing this bizzare thing where it increases the amount to be downloaded, started at 27Mb, now 30 going up and up???? So confused

    Damn, how many inhalers do you have in your inventory, that you can survive so long in space? :)

    But seriously: are there any release notes for Arkadia out yet?

    Have a question.

    okay what can I do about it that I'm stuck in space?

    can anyone help me by picking me up from space?

    Or should I be stuck here until the next update?

    And how long does it take to become free?

    Maybe I'll go and play another game right now are tired of sitting up here.

    You should have sent a support ticket right after you were stuck, they might have sent you back already if you are lucky.

    I don't own a quad wing, so I can't really help, but maybe you can ask a MS owner for a rescue mission?

    To add personal thoughts on this update, I am not happy myself with all of the new mentor situation. Using a tp to get to whatever is the NAZ on the planet you are on is fine (our devs did not add a tp to our NPE for a good reason, assume that has not changed but not logged in yet), but to allow ANY player such access to Genesis doesn't sit well with me really. Genesis is the all universe start area, and where newcomers first choose which planet to be 'born' on, and once that choice is made, you may change your planet of play later of course, but the revenue share to the PP you first chose is a done deed from then on. No player, mentor or not, should be there and have the chance to influence the new player about which planet to choose in my own opinion. But then I don't see any NAZ as a place to find a mentor either, but a place to get help in choosing one if you want one, after getting general help and advice getting started.

    Idk, just seems like a field day for disciple farmers to me rather than any real needed help for the newcomers. Rant over :)
