    ALERT: Oratan have been seen carrying knives!

    Arkadia Update 2012.3 brings you new mobs, new vehicles, new estates!


    New Content


    • Keen-eyed observers have reported a plump, purple presence with a prominent proboscis, roaming various areas of Sentosa. Called “Nusul” by IFN scientists, it may look cute but stay on guard!
    • Colonists who arrived with or after Fleet Arkadia will by now be used to seeing Oratan carrying crossbows. In an intriguing development, some Oratan have now been noticed carrying knives as their primary weapon!

    • A few versions of the Exploration Hoverpod have been developed for colonist use. They are Limited and Craftable, and their production utilises some previously unused Arkadian items.

    • Apartments and shops have had a model update and are being prepared for sale.

    General Changes


    • The in-game map has been enhanced for more convenient use.

    • Due to popular demand, Ky Fung was eventually commissioned to sort out the sun. After an epic voyage and a sword fight of nuclear proportions, the day/night cycle has been adjusted, and night time is now shorter.

    • Terrain textures have been improved.
    • As part of the recently released new colonist experience, further enhancements to the cave systems have been made.


    Issues Fixed


    • Armour values on the Exploration Hoverpod are now set correctly.


    Important Note on the Underground Area


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

    The new sound of LAW-101 is funny, sounds as if I'm tossing chickens at mobs :D. I like it though.

    Thanks for making the new Hovers customizable!

    Nusul sweating groups already forming at Celeste Outpost (27270,10930)

    Great mob for newbies to sweat, at a decent outpost with turret. What else could we need.

    =)

    In his interview with Isclay, Dobson said there's one spawn south of SC... And that the spawn information was being given to Endy to put in Oceanic. :)

    Nice update, I love new hoverpod, it has a great speed would be a good toy for miners.
    But kinda pity that A-team didn't add at least one arkadian vehicle part that uses arkadia minerals, then maybe crafters would buy just buy some arkadia minerals and crafting here instead of importing minerals from Calypso to Arkadia.
    Just my 2 pecs :p

    Vehicle LL bps are always incredibly rare. When I was crafting for them back when quads/sleips were introduced I could go through 20k peds in materials a day and only come out with one or two LL bps.

    oh... thank you :)

    *edit* in my defense it was middle of the night and i was tired out of my brains, i only saw they were south of SC and thought "great, what the heck is SC?" so i checked map and saw "scoria camp" then i stopped looking... ^^ lol

    oh well

    17 k clicks on vehicles and i FINALLY got a hoverpod blueprint :D weeeee!
    was a huge ped waste to get it though... but what the hey, i got it :)

    Are you 100% sure about this? I have it on good authority that the BPs to make the Hoverpods, use Arkadian components, that also require Arkadian ingredients to make them in turn.

    Can we get a confirmation either way from a BP holder please?

    Sorry I got a bad English writing :p, I mean crafters are all crafting shared bluepring like combustor, chair frame etc... to try to loot a hoverpod blueprint now. So I think it would be great to add a basic vehicle part blueprint like combustor but use some arkadia minerals, then some crafters may just buy minerals and craft that bp in arkadia instead of calling a MS and import minerals from caly to craft combustor or chair frame.
