    Hi Arkadia team,

    I don't suppose you have a rough ETA of when you hope treasure is going to start to be introduced?

    I presume it will come in stages, as inline with the background story, was just wondering when it will start ;)

    By the way, lovin Arkadia so far, damn good effort :)

    my client loader already includes Arkadia underground and I think it might be related to treasures.

    It's likely arkadia underground and treasures are related. I would guess when mining for treasures if you successfully find one you get an option to go underground into a "dungeon" instance where you'd have to complete a "quest" to collect treasure. So this would mean the reintroduction of the old "beacons" system.

    Doesn't have to be exactly like this could be some variation to this e.g. instead of finding a beacon you find treasure which acts as a beacon i.e. an access to a dungeon...
    or more likely i'm dreaming again :)

    That sounds amazing... If it is that complex, I'm going to love it!


    Some more thinking instead of just auto shooting a mob until it drop dead... loot.. repeat :D

    I'm hoping to find more that just ornaments on old structures/pillars etc.

    I wish they could mean something, like an ancient language that tells something about the place or what it was used to.

    And what comes to old ruins and Treasure Hunting, I'm hoping it would reveal some ancient technology that opens doors to something new to explore... or pieces of an old item/tool that can be repaired back to working condition and see what it does and where can it take us.

    There must be some pretty advanced old technology lying around there, somewhere... I hope. For us to find it! :)

    Not just old ruins with no purpose...

    I suspect these Treasure Items may vary from simple Gems and Gold to Ancient Weapons and Armour. It will be exciting if the items are UL.
    My guess is the 31st as well. With all the mining equipment effected by the Treasure Hunter and Archaeologist skills it will be a welcome patch.

    That could be quite cool. I like how Arkadia Studios says there will eventually be collections to obtain. I may need an apartment to house my valuables :D

    *Also I moved this thread to treasure hunting, seems to fit better here :)*

    I'll write more about Treasure Hunting soon, however I just wanted to clear up a rumour that it will be released on 31st May. I'm not sure how the misunderstanding occurred however I can say that Treasure Hunting will not be implemented on Arkadia on 31st May. For Treasure Hunting to be a fully functioning system it needs to be very complex (ie lots of items and uses for them - BP's). So I'd encourage everyone to get to know the planet and enjoy it for what it is while we firstly resolve a few known bugs and then get busy finishing the Treasure Hunting.

    Perhaps is this a Calypso question, but i am thinking since VU10 hit us, if old Beacons will return to work. I always do click in beacons i have in storage and always check "Show in map" button.

    Once again, Dave comes through for us. I hope everyone gets something out of treasure hunting. I used to get a beacon from time to time, always from killing something in defense, and my soc had a regular team doing the runs. I hope Arkadia has something like that for the beacon guys, but also, other treasures like maybe things that can be repaired to see what they do, or alien technology that could be used or sold, as a professional solo maniac I get left behind a lot since almost every 'reward' in the EU is for hunters and fighters, hope Arkadia spreads rewards out a bit more.
