    Thanks for the update

    Are there any plans to implement a tp from Moon to Ark?

    Is it now possible to claim the Ark mining mission reward from the moon quest terminal?

    Will there be another patch in the very near future that implements land plots? (Somehow remember the ETA was sept 2018)

    If it still isn't possible to move from the Moon to the space station or planet without going through PvP, all of this is worthless.

    It is just like any other planet now. When lifting off from the moon, you spawn in the moon's safe zone where you can fly to the station or the planet (both are the same distance away). If you have loot, get summoned to a mothership or privateer and have your loot safely transported. Lifting off from Ark now lands you in the station safe zone just like always.

    There was one report of a player spawning in PVP today, but it may have been due to too many ships in the zone at the time (a bug we've seen before at Calypso). The moon's safe zone is small, and i think it will need to be enlarged in a future update to avoid this problem. If it happens to you, submit a support case with your spawn coordinates.

    And they have removed the 2 ped landing fee from all planets too.

    Am I missing the way to summon from the moon? I did log out in the moon safe zone today and respawn inside Ark SS so there's that.

    Also the new spawn point on the moon is over the Southeast dome I wonder if this will be IFN HQ.

    Also the moon safe zone touches the moon after spawning upp I was able to fly back to the moon without entering PVP.

    There are still some differences from how most planets work but it looks like if you're willing to jump through some hoops you can get from moon to planet without entering PVP.

    Definitely file a ticket. Here's my redundant link to a support ticket of MA compensating me for this. It takes time but you shouldn't have to lose your PED for it.

    So nice to be able to move around with only thruster decay. It's embarrassing the number of times I've forgotten to have 2 PED on card leaving a planet after a hunting or crafting run.

    Oh you guys.

    It's only been a few minutes but I'm double posting to separate this:

    I just found out that the safe zone includes THE ENTIRE MOON.

    I went under the atmo dome in space and declined the entry to the moon. I was then able to fly around the entire moon completely inside non PVP. I went below the dome, but I rose above it in a couple of spots and was still in safe zone. I didn't explore yet (going back after I post this) how far it extends above the surface of the moon but no problems under the dome.

    Oh this is great. It's the next best thing to random spawn coords, maybe. In my few optimistic moments here I'm going to hope they're working towards that.


    Awwwww yeah you can make them chase you around the entire planet lol. Campers will still be on your tail if there's not much traffic but this is much less like being a fish in a barrel.


    :astronaut:

    EDIT: Confirmed complete circumnavigation outside the dome in 2 axes.

    EDIT 2: I'm not good at surveying this but it looks like it might be almost .2 AU from the moon in a full sphere.

    AWESOME :banana:

    EDIT3: A good half dozen pirates up here checking things out, too ;)

    So if I want to keep my generic loot that I've already paid 5% tax on, I need to wait for a mothership, pay for a mothership, possibly pay a fee to TP down to the planet (depending on where the mothership goes) just to avoid a trip that should take 30 seconds but which will be impossible to traverse in a quad without getting killed by pirates.

    Or they could just put in a TP to the planet like a CP, but apparently they're not interested on that.

    Or I can not bother with the moon.

    Or I can not bother with the moon, leave Arkadia tonight, feeling more disappointed than ever with Arkadia and its developers, and with less will than ever to come back in the future.

    Yep, that's the one. Goodbye.

    So you could lift off from the moon with loot and log out to be safely tp'd to the SS and avoid the pirates camping the moon.

    Or to a mothership whose guest list you're on, if it's closer to you than the station revive.

    Thanks for that report, I hadn't read it before.

    Space can be buggy in ways we don't expect. I also relog after I land on a planet. There were instances where a player landed on a planet but a copy of their avatar is left hanging in space, lootable. If this happens you might see doubled HOF messages in your system chat. Relogging removes the old copy of you. I haven't heard of this bug in a while but I usually have to relog to get my mission tracker working anyway.

    I've also had cases where my loot stacks have become invisible. So if I'm heading to space, I'll usually relog, then go through both panes of lootables, hitting the compact button (not the equipped button!) and then scrolling up to make sure there are no resources that might have been at the bottom. I also note my item count and weight (minus quad) so I can tell if I get looted of anything, even from inside a container (and 1 kg or more).

    So the devs/MA may as well install a 7 ped TP from Moon to Ark since it actually exists in a round about way.

    If you can get them chasing you all around you can take them out past where they can even see the spawn and still be in safe zone.

    I was digging around in some old screenshots today and I just have to say, that's how you deliver a dung (or whatever speck of trash I took up that day).

    Not sure which Warhounds were named incorrectly or which level name succession is supposed to be correct, since deviation from the usual was obviously intended. I noticed Warhound Dominant and Stalker had their labels swapped, but it was and still is inconsistent with the Oompas (cf. creature survey). Will there be more changes?
