    I noticed i get a fair bit of green paint from the level 1-3 instances. I assume that is because of the loot being tied to robots. I was thinking though, the recommended level of using green paint is level 8, which makes it impossible to use for newer players that do the instances.

    Could you change the paint for a lower level one, or maybe use the paints in an upcoming blueprint?

    Hi Harmony, The green paint is due to the shared loot list being tied into the lootbox system. Unfortunately there is not much we can do about it other then disabling green paint from dropping on the planet completely.

    Hello,

    that is ofc a topic for each PP and their instances.

    The PPs should band together and ask for seperate lootboxes for each PPs instances at Mindark so that the planets can have their own individual story and planet based instances and economies appart from being equal and to avoid handing out loot which has no purpose on the planets.

    Like Mindark currently announced their view of how a planet should be:
    http://www.entropiaforum.com/forum/2589246-post1.html

    The loot distribution of the instances dont match their announcement.

    Mindark cant add different planets loot into one single instance lootbox as alot high end players doing beacons on calypso will not be pleases about e.g. treasure materials after a beacon.

    A hot topic for them.

    Greets,

    Its a little more complicated then you think to do this. I can unfortunately not go into details how the system works.

    Paint is also required on the planet if we want colorers on the planet.

    Can we at least have more various paints in instances not only green?

    There is already some other colors available, they just seem to be a bit more rare then the green on the lower level instances. The higher level ones you should see a shift to other colors becoming more common.

    Yeah some purple dropping as well... I like the large amounts of green tho. I am nearly lvl 8 colourer and green is a nice low mu paint that I use to skill with :)

    i could be ok with that disable all paints on ark we have enough textures and i'm sure it be an overall good thing for the economy and loot

    the less vareity in loot the better for the economy that way we end up with bigger stacks of fewer different items.

    Not really seeing the probelm here. You can skill with any paint, even if your level is not high enough to successfully use. The ideal paint for skilling is low MU so green is good for that.

    If nothing else it has a relatively high TT value and can be TT'ed after you stock enough of it... :p

    Agree completely. These are only the lower level instances, for lower level players effectively. I use all paint to skill with and the lower level paint in lower level instances (and higher level paint in higher ones) makes perfect sense to me.

    Strongly disagree, that is effectively telling those who skill and provide paint services there is no place for them on Arkadia, not really a good economy plan to me :D
