    Attention Arkadian Colonists:


    ORATAN ALERT!!!



    The IFN has received reports of the sudden appearance of several Oratan camps in remote areas of the continent of Sentosa. According to Commodore Toan Harvir, “This sudden desire by the enemy to occupy territory marks the first change in strategy that we have seen”. More insight into the situation can be found in story instalment 4.1.


    ECONOMIC AND RESOURCE OVERHAULS


    At the request of the IFN, PTech has made major overhauls to its resource detection software. Miners can now expect a completely different distribution and availability of resources across the entire continent of Sentosa.

    The PTech upgrades, made with the knowledge gained from the first months of Arkadian mining, are part of the IFN’s aim to ensure Arkadia is able to sustain itself without the need of Imperial Federal aid. In accordance with this policy, the IFN has directed Arkadia’s technology suppliers to reconfigure their product blueprints to more effectively utilise locally available resources.


    NEWS FROM THE ACA

    Under direction from the IFN, the Arkadian Colonial Administration (ACA) has been active in recruiting Arkadia Advisers, as part of its drive to welcome new colonists and help them through the early stages of life on their new home planet. To make these personnel easier to find, at places such as the new Celeste Quarry area, the ACA will be presenting the Arkadia Advisers with a special high-visibility vest.

    The ACA has recently completed construction of a new roadway from Celeste Harbour to Celeste Quarry as well as some additional infrastructure upgrades to the Quarry itself. During the final stages of construction, the ACA reported the sudden appearance of a previously unknown flightless bird, which has been named “Ostelok”, near the Quarry.

    Scientists are currently puzzling over the reason for this, and the fact that it seems to have coincided with reported sightings of another bird species spreading further up the east coast. Classified as “Feran”, this flight capable creature has been sighted to the north near Ocean Lookout and Taipan Digsite.

    The two species don’t seem to be related but several in the scientific groups are querying whether it is a coincidence that they have appeared at the same time as the Oratan Camps were discovered…


    SCAVENGER HUNT!

    An arriving equipment supply ship carrying Trade Terminal supplies was recently attacked over the Celeste Harbour area, and its cargo has been scattered across the landscape. For more information, please read the Scavenger Hunt event thread at Planet Arkadia Forum, as well as instalment 4.1 of the story!

    Great update. looking forward (sort of) to finding out where the resources are.

    However, when I see this....

    I notice some of these Known issues are the same as the last update.
    Please do not fall into the MA/FPC/SDS way of doing things buy ignoring known bugs patch after patch.

    We all love the work you're doing and you guys are great.

    I didn't say new BP's would be in, I said the BP's were getting a rework. However, I can say there are still many blueprints that have been in game since launch that are yet to be discovered. I have no doubt that crafters on Arkadia will really like the changes made with this VU.

    Thanks for the fast response and sorry if I misunderstood. Can you tell me if amp BPs higher than level 1 are in? I have spots in my book for up to tier 5, but after hundreds of attempts, no BPs. Thanks again.

    If a BP has a slot in the Arkadia Books it means the blueprint is in game, doesn't mean it's been discovered yet though. Well worth re-looking at the recipes of your BP's after the update.

    Edit: It's been pointed out correctly that the texture BP slots are in game but the BP's are not yet in game. My apologies for the error. I'm hopeful to have some good news regarding texture BP's very soon. Dave

    Have a quick watch of the video again you'll see clothes are coming in 4th Quarter. The Arkadian Advisers vest (non craftable) has been added with this VU. Clothes take a lot of time to develop but will be worth the wait, check out the details on the Advisers Vest when you see one in game and you'll have an idea of the way the Arkadian clothes are being developed (lots of detail).
