    So I've moved to Arkadia and have been doing the Oro missions. I've killed about 1k oros and three of them have dropped hides.

    Now, being a material designer, I find this a bit silly. The only use for animal hides is to make textures. Textures are used to make things look pretty. It should not cost 1k peds to create a piece of clothing that has oro textures on it, because people do not spend that kind of money on clothes.

    So, all mobs should drop hides like crazy. Instead of those crappy oils, lets drop hides!

    Don't make the same mistakes they are doing on Calypso. :)

    Hi Darkaner,

    I've looted more than 300PED worth of animal specific hides (Oweko, Oturugi etc), maybe the Oro are just a bit slow?
    Haven't tried Oro myself but the other mobs seem to pop quite a bit!

    Some of that hide is 1-2 TT per hide, so might not indicate an overall count of hide loot.

    I have nearly 300 hides from various loots, but have hunted quite a bit. Seems to come and go in spurts though. I've killed (through various means) up to 172/1200 oro through the missions, and have just 21 oro hide (2.1tt). And a short one-time teladon hunt, 17 hide is 34tt.

    I have refined into ~500 leathers so far so that's 1500 hides?

    Maybe it is a balancing issue, I think there is a limited amount of each resource in the system and since this hides can't be used yet most of them stays in storage. So there will be less and less in loot.

    Remember that MA is still balancing loot on Arkadia. It's a new planet; things will take time before they are correct. Also remember that MA is in charge of loot, not the Planet Partner. That being said, hopefully MA takes notice and ensures the proper amount of hides/skins dropping in mobs.

    NOOOOOOoooooooooooo............ There goes any hope of decent balancing. Fuck.

    But it's good news the others are dropping hides. Now all we need are some texture bp's. :)
