    REMAINING INSTANCE LEVELS RELEASED!



    Since the launch of the Aakas instances and the Arkadia Gold Rush 2012 last week, a number of changes and fixes have now been implemented:



    • After some triple checking of the higher order energy signatures in Arkadian Keys, the IFN has given the green light for colonists to explore what are expected to be even more dangerous parts of the subterranean desert city!
    • Due to numerous reports of Magurg Females eating careless colonists, the Arkadian Colonial Administration has requested greater attention be paid to Treasure Hunter safety. Accordingly, timers have been added to Aakas instances in the hope that colonists will stay focused.
    • A number of enterprising NPCs have started making interesting offers for Arkoins at the IFN Supply Depot:
      • IFN Clothing Store Arkoin Broker is at 30728, 13366.
      • IFN Armoury Arkoin Broker is at 30936, 13414.
      • IFN Weaponry Store Arkoin Broker is at 30974, 13511.
    • Apartment walls now operate as expected, and will tolerate things being hung upon them where previously they would not.
    • The Alloy Plate Blueprint icon should now be showing correctly.
    • The Arkadian Tools Blueprint Book now allows for crafting of the Arkadian Golden Key.
    • The instance areas under Aakas now generate appropriately themed music for Treasure Hunters.
    • Inspired by the appropriately themed music, the creatures under Aakas have now begun making sounds of their own.
    • The new Media Centre's event terminal has been scolded in an open letter from the Trade Terminals union, and has now promised to behave itself.

    is it possible to have treasure chests that contain no loot? i have waited more than 5 minutes after opening 5 of 6 on a lvl5 instance and still nothing :)

    Yes it is possible, it is something with the instance system that some chests contain no loot (similar to a mob containing no loot).

    ty for the quick reply :)
    i also havent had any of the coins yet with the lvl4-5 i have done, is this intentional too or is my sample size just too small?
    personally i dont understand the reasoning behind dropping a load more robot loot without having a actual use for it on arkadia, with a bit of forethought there could already be ark bp's that actually use this junk, from what i see in game having to TT loot with no possible resale value is something that really effects how people feel about their results :)

    arkoin brokers seem to be broken I think...they don't interact with me...the npc next to them does just fine with the noob instructions...

    Hi Nutrageti,

    MA is looking into the Arkoin brokers, They have to be manually enabled by MA. They said some time back it will be online in a few min so there might be something causing a holdup with enabling the brokers.

    The robo-loot is there because the defenders & brutes and other thigies are classified as robots. But I'd agree - give the things a use, ppl will grind instances more.

    i just spoke to 3 other people that have been running the lvl4+ instances and none have received arkoins, it would be nice to know if this is not a bug and they are just more rare now, for example :)

    if they are limited loot amount then they will start looting again once people can spend them in the new arkoin brokers

    Gotta agree to some of this.

    1. Robo parts need a stronger use on Ark or else it will impact economy on other planets in a bad way this need to happen kinda fast imo before the damage is already done.

    2. That a lv 5 or above can drop no loot is something imo the Ateam gotta look closely upon. I lost bout 100 ped on my lv 6 run with al the chests looting. if one of thoose would have been a no looter I would never ever have gone into on of these instanses again.

    3. MA needs to get their shit togheter brokers still not up and running hours after patch is just damn sad. And it makes Ateam look bad when they are truly good.

    4. Arkoins should be rare but not to rare as they are basicly the only way when not looting items to even stand a chance to break even on runs like this.

    5. Have we checked so they acctauly put the key in the loot pool this time? :) sry for beeing sceptik to MA :p.

    Another nice update thou lets hope ark keeps things like this going :D

    which is lame! Ma keeps saying for the last 2 years oh we're gonna get rid of no loots and put things back to the way they used to be. How much longer does MA think they can pull this crap before ppl dont start playing the other free games. David Post said some BS about gambling and MA got all defensive yet that is the only players you want is gamblers willing to loose lots for the chance at hitting it big. What about the persont hat just wants to play a game and have fun not make a living. Guess what we're gonna start playing other games thats what.

    I think A-team feel bad for arkoin broker doesn't work too, but they can only ask mindark to turn it on. They can't do nothing but wait. I feel sad for them too. But if possible I hope A-team can turn off robot junk in instance until new bp uses robot junks come out. It feels really bad when you have to transport your loot to other planets because there's no demand in Arkadia. But if instance's loot is limited by platform tool then we can only accept it and hope A-team can get the bps out ASAP

    Be patient people... we have very fun instances that work, that are dropping nice loot today. Not the robot junk, but they've been dropping a lot of items today. We've seen a lot of SOOTOs today, and MUs are high. So what, the NPCs are going to take a day or two to get active. The A-team is doing their best, and they've done an awesome job so far.

    Arkcoins

    with over 10k in coins, I'd say that are not very rare at all. in fact, everyone I know has around 9k-30k of these things... they drop like mad.

    2 x lvl 6, full - all kills done - all chests looted - ZERO arkcoins - Only robot junk !

    FIX THIS ASAP or don't wonder why ppl can't care less about the instances despite all the effort u put into development. On the launch day chat should be filled with globs from higher lvl instances ... well, is not - guess why ?? ... Also, the big chest giving lower loot than any other chest is something trully new :)

    pfff if the Arkoin traders aren't turned on soon they will just be tt food. Ok maybe if the items are good MU will rise again and the resellers can all be happy but still that is not a good situation. hehe
