    Garbage stats but I got the pack for the skill boosts and the armor has run speed boost useful for mining.

    Looks like you can get a different gun though. I had the barberela... might be tied to your highest gun profession which is laser for me.

    Sally are you blp?

    Think I will wait until they do some packs for veteran players, such as a platinum account. The Harrier Armour looks great however. Nice replacement for some older looking noob armour. Adjusted Miscarriage still rocks though.

    So... if I understood right, u depo 50$ which means ~480 PED and u get 341.40 TT in items+PED ?! Kinda feels like MA learned the meaning of MU :D
    Those noob gunz are UL - right ? and is anything tradeable/sellable from the pack ? except the H-DNA which is useless being one time use only device as I've read ...

    It looks ok. You depo $40 and get 386 ped worth of items because of 3,5% standard deposit fee.

    EDIT: I've overlooked that its 341,4 and that looks weird. So standard fee is bigger than with regular depo?

    The skill boosters are worth far more than their TT value...

    Yes to veterans, but basically 0 value to newbies. Most of them just eat whatever they can eat and.... die. then revive with the freaking H-DNA and repeat.
    The way I see it is there are 45.3 ped(guns, fap and armors) permanently locked ingame, as they can't be refund from TT. That's 5 dollars that already made by Mindark from this transaction. I think the starter pack would be much more attractive to newbies if Mindark gives the full value of deposit to players, make it more like incentive for your first deposit. Just like Neteller or Ukash does. Especially the ammo you get from the pack can't even be TTed, no one would quit before they spent it all. It can increase the trial time for newbies, let them have abit more patient to the game. Even people are really hate the game for now, they know they have a set of armor and gun waiting for them ingame whenever they want to come back, they got something to play with.

    But anyway it is a good direction to go, at least mindark is trying to do something right. Just hope they can do better next time.

    I think the starter pack is a good idea, but including the skill boosters and the H-DNA was a mistake. Not needed for newbies and the H-DNA will just confuse them.

    Yeh looking forward to premium accounts and what ever is in them.

    you also get 3 h-dna that revive on spot ( resurrection solo ) and there good.

    for the new players this pack used wisley and with a good mentor is really good.
    I have had a lot of fun with this and still am ;) was going to depo any way but wanted
    to see what was actually in it and the ped values.

    Also In the new starter area I think you get some nicer options as well and so this might be where the missing ped value is and as an old account wont see these.

    NOTE 1 - Some of the stuff ( booster ) wont work on Arkadia and has a red X in the Inventory.

    NOTE 2 - You have to have all Armour pieces on to get the boost with the Armour

    NOTE 3 - The Amp that you get for the weapon appears to fit on to the TT Version of weapons as well not sure if this is a bug or will change later but tried it on a few and fits lower lazer models cant test higher ones as use BLP Primarily.

    NOTE 4 - You get 100 Oil as well for the 4X4 as a separate item ( another ped accounted for )

    NOTE 5 - Universal Ammo can we not have this in loot rather than BLP / Lazer cells with universal its easy to switch between weapons.
    with this in the loot rather than BLP / Lazer might also help reduce some of the loot lag we see.

    Think this is a nice little pack and looks like there might be some more fun stuff as and when they decide what to put in premium accounts and what they charge.

    Lets put it this way I can normally go through 400 + Peds a night. ( thats cycled )

    Last night i was playing with this lot and only went through 40 peds and still had a massive amount of fun,
    I am waiting for items to sell in auction to restore ped balance and so was looking to do a small depo, also
    waiting for my next pay day and so for £24 / $40 then this was a fun option.

    Just testing it all out ;) yeh i know thats kinda sad but from the old opalo and a101 days this is nice
    and looks cooler than settler and has the boosts ;) yeh the stats might not be cool but as a starter armour I think its nice

    Also Most of the Items are UL so you have them for your time ingame I think thats nice as you can then look back and think wow I have progressed to XX Armour and XX weapons I personally arnt the worlds biggest fan of L stuff all the time.

    a 17 ped value car is going to last a while as well and so not just like the valk or hoverpod that don't really last that long
    and are not high TT value its a little nippy car as well.

    Right Of to Buildup the tier Levels on the weapon and Armour ;)

    It sounds like the speed boost on the adjusted harrier is currently not working. I hope this is a bug... and that the boost will be enabled next VU... rather than a display bug and the armor not meant to have any speed boost at all.

    The skill pills don't display correctly in inventory or storage (the old red X which most experienced players will recognise), but they can still be used. It's not an Arkadia problem, it's a universal one, at least for certain people.

    I also notice that they don't appear in your loot list in the screenshot, and I don't think the one I won from the Oratan event appeared in my loot window either, so I guess there's something wrong with their icon.

    That amp works magic on low level guns both eco- and dps-wise, so totally worth it for newbies and later on finishers.
