    Arkadia VU Release Notes 19th September 2023.


    8 Coins
    As "Roar of the 8 Coins" has evolved, accompanied by a significant drop in tax rates to 0%, we've witnessed an overwhelmingly positive response from the Arkadians engaged in hunting and mining within the 8 Coins region.

    In light of this resounding approval and the newfound enthusiasm it has generated, we have made the decision to eliminate all taxes within the entire area. Furthermore, we intend to phase out the landareas, as they have become obsolete in the wake of this exciting new era of tax-free hunting and mining at 8 Coins.

    "When I returned to Arkadia and witnessed the remarkable success of the Wrath Unleashed - Roar of the 8 Coins event, skillfully executed by our team, and the enthusiastic response from our fellow Arkadians, I realized that the path forward was clear: removing taxes from 8 coins and revitalizing the historic mining grounds that 8 Coins was originally" expressed Mathias, CEO of Arkadia.


    8 Coins HQ Town

    [​IMG]
    We thought the 8 Coins headquarters area lacked substance with only a single teleporter and an empty building. To address this, we expanded it into a complete town featuring residences and parks.

    The estates will become accessible in the near future, rolled out in batches.


    Creature Spawns Adjustments

    Creatures spawns on all Arkadia territories were adjusted.

    Adjustments made where needed:
    • Reduced respawn time on some spawns
    • Added some clustered spawns inside or near the existing spawns (high density lower respawn times)
    We will continue to adjust the creatures spawns based on players feedback so don’t hesitate to send us suggestions on that matter.

    A good VU for Ark and love the development and ideas for the old 8 coins areas.
    But sadly disappointed with the updates to the dailies. Was hoping for something different for the crafting, as the current crafting dailies have no interest for most crafters, but we are forced to do them if we wish to do the weekly etc. Waste of time and ped.

    Do you get the mining missions from the same NPC, I don't seem to be able to get the AU and AM mining missions only the crafting and hunting?

    Is it possible there is a bug with these mining missions.

    I had one running on Ark Planet for Ospra, then the mission name switched to ark moon and any further Ark Planet deposits I get no longer seem to count toward the mission. I have never been offered the mining mission on Ark Moon or Underground. Am I missing something?

    THis is the same for me, I have a mining mission open from before the VU so is it possible that is why we can't see the AU and AM mining missions?

    Managed to fix it by simply cancelling the mission then they all appear. Bit tedious to lose my progress on that daily - free insignia for my troubles Zeph? ^^

    Hi.
    You moved a building from the arrival area to 8 Coin Headquarters and added Some buildings with stores and apartments. But you didn't do it very neatly. Some road signs were moved as is and now point in the wrong direction. At Resolute Firebase, some lampposts (?) are hanging in the air above the ground.

    Earlier, after getting a passport, the Arrival Officer gave a mission, which was a mini-story and in the course of its fulfillment awarded some equipment and things, including a Hoverpod. Now this officer is silent (perhaps this bug is inherent in a particular player avatar). I couldn't find some of the NPCs who participated in this scenario. For example, the NPCs who gave out the hoverpod and helmet have disappeared. Did you turn off this mission and now newcomers can't get these things?

    Previously, to join the IFN it was enough to finish this introductory story and talk to the recruiter to get the corresponding mission. Now you have to talk to the guide NPCs in the building you moved to and only then will the recruiter talk to you. There are no instructions for this and the player can only randomly discover this mission. You have completely redesigned and ruined the introductory missions. There is no need for a new recruit to go to the new HQ, which means they won't soon find an opportunity to join IFN, if at all, over the years of playing the game. In my opinion these changes should have been reflected in the patch log, for this devaluation of Arkadia citizenship is no less important a change than, for example, changes in mob spawns.

    I don't understand what's going on. During this update you apparently broke the citizenship newbie mission.

    A two week report on this has been waiting for a response. Is it hard to go and check that key NPCs just disappeared? And answer us at least something. Zephyrus was visiting the forum during this time. Or is he only posting but not reading?
