    'Culling the Oratan's food supply seems to be having minimal impact on their activities' said Commodore Harvir to the leader of his ground forces.

    'Maybe so, but it's certainly allowing our scientists to gather some good data' replied Captain Chiharo.

    'True enough. Alright, we'll give the colonists a system to keep a proper count of their kills and reward them for their ongoing efforts.'

    Satisfied with progress on the colony's main threat, Harvir had been able to put some more time into economic matters. He wanted to be out there with the troops, building the colony, but some things needed to come first.
    Important Note on the Underground Area

    The underground area is not yet available, we strongly recommend not downloading it as there is no advantage doing so prior to its release - you will still need to download the final content when it is released at a later date.


    New Content
    • New Creature
      • A new Creature called the Scoria has been found roaming around in the northern areas of 8 Coins.
    • New Missions
      • IFN Challenges added for Otorugi, Kiana, Oweko, Kadra, Madana, Huon, Beladoth, Teladon, Korwil, Kamaldon, Yuka, and Scoria.
      • Achievements added for the new IFN Challenges.
      • Trophy Heads have been added for creatures featured in an IFN Challenge.
      • Oro IFN Challenge updated to include new Trophy Head reward in Stage 4. If you have previously completed this stage the reward will be delivered to your inventory.
    • Other New Content
      • 6 Shop Stalls at Celeste Quarry which will be sold via auction.
      • New destinations, including Teleporters, on 8 Coins and Sanctuary Cove.
      • An incident of Oratan theft, discovered on 18th Feb 3008 at Steadfast Firebase may be related to the more recent news that a wide variety of longblades and shortblades that went missing, have begun turning up in various types of creature carcasses. Blueprints for these weapons remain classified by the IFN and are unavailable at present.

    Balance Changes

    • Improved availability of Muscle Oil.

    Issues Fixed

    • Floating crates and Teleporters have been re-gravitated. Halloween tricksters will be located and dealt with. We are not amused.
    • Carabok texture Blueprint is in the correct category in the Technician.
    • Terrain fixes on 8 Coins.

    General Changes
    • All new colonists will now land exclusively at Resolute Firebase Academy.
    • New login screen.
    • General updates to Celeste Harbour and Quarry.

    Known Issues
    • Estate Terminals show a different colour when set to private.
    • Some categories in the Trade and Technician Terminals are missing text.
    • Weapon sounds can vary from shot to shot on some weapons.
    • Limited Blueprint Book cannot be coloured or textured.
    • Some types of eyewear can appear outside or on top of the Armour Helmet.
    • Skin from some face/head shapes can be seen when wearing Armour Helmet.
    • Televators in buildings may link to the building next door in rare cases.
    • Feran are afraid of getting too close to the ground.

    Don't know what others are thinking about, but personally quite unimpressed on the new IFN challenge mobs, just from oOo jump to Madana, HP from 50 >420, it is a very very big gap if you ask me, there should be at least one new IFN challenge between Oro and Madana, hope a-team just reserved newbie mob IFN challenge for January new player experience update

    Not disagreeing with you but just wanted to say, every mob on this planet, with exception of Yuka maybe, can be taken down with a team of 12 noobs with tt weapons. Even be easier if the team of 12 had healers with the group. I think here they are promoting team work instead of solo play for IFN challenges. Team play is also much more fun doing grinder missions anyways, griding alone is so boring.

    Can definitely agree with you there.. Which is probably why I haven't actually finished any IFN/Iron Challenges :p On Calypso I get to about 1k or 5k.. Still got a few at 500.. on Oro I'm on the 4800, I think... :p

    Would have been nice with a Karabook mission, since when gathering resources for crafting we kill a lot of them.

    Good content for Ark, but MA systems are all screwed up. Team chat doesn't work right, FL are messed up.... any info on when these will be working again?

    I think a carabok mission would defeat the pourpose of giving the newcomers a mob that is not intensly hunted and gives loot with good MU. If everybody hunted caraboks for the mission rewards pretty soon the MU on the skins would be 101%.

    But a halix or zadul mission could be nice.

    I am satisfied with the missions a good range, but yes one between Oro and Madana for newer players would be good as well

    Hi Tomas,

    They will be delivered automatically by MA. Might take a few days.

    Dont worry about those IFN hunts ... Just accept them all, and someday you will get them completed as you play. Instead of taking them as the focus, just take them as a bonus, since you will hunt them sooner or later ... lol

    ROFL.Are you fricken serious your bitching like a couple hours after servers are up? Give it a day at least lol. Although it does seem that bitching has lead to looting in the past so i'll bet you loot one soon. Have fun!

    i'll be waiting to hunt until later tonight to have a better chance.

    Platform update: http://www.entropiaforum.com/forum/...1-entropia-universe-12-3-0-release-notes.html

    Friends List
    • Friend lists are now unlimited.
    • All friend connections are now bidirectional. All existing friendships have been converted to the new bidirectional.
    Could be the fact some people have you on their list and you removed them. I see several people I didn't know had me on their list.
