    Good point, it is on her west but your east lol. Not really hard to spot, but there is another blind alley in there that goes nowhere, and I've seen folks wandering around that looking lost (must admit though mostly the older players who are pretty much rushing through it as fast as they can lol).

    I think it's the beer ;) East or west does not depend on the way you're facing. You can have east on your right or your left depending which way you're facing, but east is always east.

    That remark of me was with a very big smile of me. You are completely right.... :) But it still was confusing, hahaha and I wasnt the only one...the tunnel is very easy to spot though...

    That other tunnel was really good for me to mine in :) got 2 IX and an XI running done it dropping probes with my Z5... cave mining is kind of fun but be warned you may need to sometimes do summon claim, the finds are within the walls or in some other place you can't get to.

    Hi.

    I think people in game since some years ago cannot feel starter experience equal a new innocent player, but i test firebase academy missions when Arkadia launch and i can say for sure this new start experience is a lot better.

    Greetings.

    I have now done this mission 6 times once on my own when it was introduced...and with 5 new players ..i have run with them and used my pod when they have got theres basicly as a guide if they got stuck or missed anything .. Its one of the best new player missions ive done ..and i take my Hat off to david and cyrus and the dev team on a awsome new player experiance ..job well done .. all the players ive done it with have said the same thing its the best they have done .. the older players.. and the new players have said it has given then a better insight to the game and whats involved ..plus getting the free stuff is a great bonus


    just my 2p worth

    Like Arkadia very much. Terrain is very nice, doesn't lag at all. You can see that creators knows how to do stuff, and communicate with players. Hope more people will come.

    I would like to see some extra information available during this experience. Right now all the information available to the new player is handed to them on a plate. You could for example add some lore in the equipment stores. Information boards where you can read about different armor types, different weapons, maybe some pictures and stories of how it was in the beginning before the revival network and all that. Perhaps you could also showcase some actual weapons that you can interact with, as in seeing markup, TT and stats etc. because just showing the models of weapons doesn't give much in my opinion.

    Also, most of the characters that you meet tell you to stick around as long as you like, however there's nothing to stick around for. With more superfluous information these invitations from the characters would actually make sense.

    A good newcomer experience show cater to both those who want to get started as soon as humanly possible, but also to those who care about storytelling and lore and prefer to take their time, look around, learn things on their own.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Thanks for feedback Neo,

    I'll make a note to look at Supply Depot and see if we can add some additional info as you suggest. We were a little rushed building the NPE (under 8 weeks) and I agree there is room for improvement in the finer details as you suggest. We also have broader plans for the Supply Depot which will cause players to revisit it more often, so that will add more interest. Swapping the un-clickable models out for clickable (i.e. see item info) is something I'm sure we can do and I agree would add loads more interest for new players.

    Hello everyone!
    I am new to this planet (only 3 days so far) and new to the game too (started on Calypso around 30 days ago) and first I want to say:
    Great Job!!!
    and I want to congratulate The A-Team for making this amazing planet!!!
    Already finished the starter mission, found most of the teleports (in old fashion way, a lot of running and swiming and must say there are a lot of very beautiful views that makes the exploring a pleasure, and thinking that all new players that use some kind of vehicles to get the teleports are missing a lot) and killed some carabocs and halix (must say the return was almost 100%).
    ... so far so good ... but must get back to the topic ... :)
    I like the race track, but wander way is so empty ... hope in the future there will be a lot of races going on and maybe a new profession a "Race Driver" :)
    The landscape is great, but wander is it possible to put some random small "treasures" on some random (or interesting) places on the land or somewhere deep in to the water (just a small containers with a small loot that will disappear when there are found and appear on some other random place)... it will make exploring more fun (and if the trasures are really small they will attract only the new players ... and I think for the older players will be somethink like "cheering up" to find some while hunting or mining)
    .. have some more ideas, but first must chek if they are posted already :)
    so in the end ... I am really happy that I come on Arkadia and hope that the A-Team will keep making this planet better and better.

    Whit best regards
    OLD NICK

    p.s.:btw it will be nice if there was some small reward for "Archaelogical Society Missing Personel" mission ... I know that with all this vehicles is to easy, but any way ... just a small prize ... to be honest when I finished this mission (by running and swiming enjoing the views) I felt a little bit disappoited ... but just a little bit :)

    Arkedia is the first planet in the Entropia Universe that I've started playing on and I'm sure I will visit the other planets someday but for now I am very happy living n Arkedia. there are many things to keep busy. The visuals are first rate for hunting. there is so many resources to mine and I yet to discover every place on Arkedia.

    The only thing I see lack of are Events. been on here almost three weeks now and yet to see anything on the Events page. maybe some more tunes to the playlist as well.

    Overall a big thank you to those that gave us Arkedia !!

    Thanks for the reminder, Bandido... I'm heading over to set up a noobie PVP event at the fort right now. I'll post a thread when I get it set up.
