Ok, it's day 4. I'm back on the ark forum after a couple of years because what's happened at the launch of the new moon is a mess that shouldn't be discussed only at PCF. Still nothing on this mess. Two/three days after the release a nod to the fact that leaving the planet is broken. Conflicting statements regarding what "ark devs" have been saying in chats. Direct questions completely unacknowledged, much less answered. Some people are holding on to the idea that this is a mistake. Let's be clear. This moon was built and released with no provision for safe exit. It's the first space location without a space station of some sort, and it's so close to Arkadia Space Station that a normal safe zone would ALMOST overlap. The ONLY official statement or reference to this is a statement that you are not supposed to be spawned into PVP when you are leaving Planet Arkadia. And a whole lot of people are so eager for something positive they're trying to assume that this includes the moon and that there is a safe moon exit and a TP to the planet coming. Folks that's not what was said. For those who don't see it, no safe exit from the moon will really bring to the fore the auction transport fees. I almost want to see this as a good sign, he planet partner being on the path to the platform owner's ultimate goal of transport missions and other things to force money into space. I am not ok with them forcing it directly into other players pockets. I've also posted in the past that I would be interested in a system where you entered space at a random point somewhere around a planet. Maybe or maybe not actually according to where you left it, but not at a single "spawn point" every time. What I'm pointing out is anything's possible. I'm a fan of arkadia and I'll try new things. But it's going to change a lot of things. And how that goes depends on you, Dylan|Arkadia. You and your team. Get out here and live up to your rep as communicative developers. Work with your players and investors to make this a smooth and supported transition. You made a HUGE mess here. Get your heads out of whatever orifices you have collectively stuck them in and front up. There are three problems here. You have addressed one (several days late) and continue to ignore the others. This is very straightforward: Was a safe exit from the moon originally planned for this release, or not? Was a TP to planet supposed to be provided for this release? Whether safe exit from the planet was planned has already been addressed. I realize that you may not WANT to answer these questions, but that's awfully nasty of you to think that the negative feelings will go away if you continually ignore the question. Based on what's happened, and the rumored statement from an "Ark dev" in game it seems clear that you guys put it out this way and are 'hiding' (refusing to interact or acknowledge questions and issues) while you guage the backlash. If you need to hide and plan out an "after the fact statement", well come on. It's pretty clear and supposedly stated by your own team that you stuck it to us on this one. On purpose. Would you care to address this issue? OR the other claims from a player who says they have (but so far won't link to) video of an "ark dev" stating that this is all a big mistake and next VU we'll have safe zones everywhere and TP to planet. Also I'd like to say that while I made a brief comment in that other thread I was VERY disappointed to find it locked. I don't know your history here but if you like to clamp down or block what you call "space drama" then you need to chill out fast. This IS arkadian drama. You HAVE invited this. I want that drama on the forum because it's now become important to know who is who in space just to move around between the arkadian planetary system. The crunch is on, it's all cute that you like to hang out with fanbois when things are good but man, one speck of trouble and you guys start vanishing into the woodwork and suppressing player conversations? Good morning wtf planet is this?
