    New Content


    Aakas Chambers
    Aakas_Small_Treasure_Chest.jpg
    • Chests are back - Aakas Doors work as previously, you will need a team to enter these just as before, and the chests are put back into this team based version.
      (for now only Aakas 1-5 and the Golden Door are open, Aakas 6-10 will be activated with the patch next week)
    • Arkadian Keys can now be converted to Arkadian Mini Keys without delay
    Oratan Activity
    • Secret Oratan Camp - Rumors are that the Smugglers have found a secret Oratan Camp
      (this will be activated in the patch next week, so you got a week to find the location)

    • Recent events in Arkadia Underground seem to have been a warning about the Oratan Wave Attacks that are happening down there now, head for Limbo Firebase to help protect Arkadias' Underground.
    New Trophies added
    • Trophies for stage 4 completion of IFN Challenge Monura Female, Monura Male, Dromia, Arkadian Hornet and Pandi are now available, if you have completed stage 4 of any these creatures previously all you have to do is activate the IFN terminal and you will receive your trophy.

    (We're working on fixing this issue so that people who finished already will be able to collect your Trophy as soon as possible)​

    General fixes
    • Pet icons have been corrected to display the pet
    • Pandi pup has lost its fear of humans so is no longer hiding underground, special thanks to IFN that kept the island safe from poachers
    • Aakas televators are now visible even on Safe Mode settings

    Additional Information
    • 8 coins is now one big landarea instead of several smaller areas.
    • Oratan Lancer Notable, Eminent, Glorious, Illustrious and Immortal have increased their range of attack (to prevent them going into unreachable state)
    • General improvements to the New Player Experience have been made as well.
    • ACA relocated the fashion runway that was previously located at Celeste Harbour Military HQ to a more suitable location near the racetrack up north on the continent (21211, 25452)
    • Various bug fixes and improvements have been made.
    Known Issues
    • Some Particle effects might display incorrectly
    • Players who previously completed stage 4 of IFN Challenge Monura Female, Monura Male, Dromia, Arkadian Hornet and Pandi currently can't collect their trophy head.

    Wooot. Monura trophies!! I'm 1k males away from this and was wondering if it would be a "disappointment" or not.

    Thumbs up on the chests. Those have been greatly missed (by others).

    Entropia Universe 15.3.0 Release Notes
    15 Jun 2015

    Features

    Mission Galactica
    A new universe-wide mission has been added and can be accessed via the Action Library. Full details of this exciting new mission will be posted on the Entropia Universe Buzz page very soon.

    Harvesting
    A new resource gathering system has been introduced allowing participants to harvest natural resources. The first phase of this system features wood harvesting. Resource nodes can be found near appropriate terrain object, so knowledge of the local environment will allow one to locate valuable resource nodes more easily.

    A new Resource Gatherer profession has been created, along with its related primary skill Resource Gathering. The TerraTech PH-1, a basic wood harvesting tool, can be purchased at Trade Terminals on all planets. Higher level harvesting tools can be manufactured with the required blueprints.

    When a harvesting tool is equipped, the resource node that the tool can extract will show up in the world when within range. Using the tool on such a resource will extract natural material. There are different resource tiers, and harvesting tools have a rating indicating the highest resource tier that can be harvested (along with any lower tiers). Each resource node can only be harvested a limited number times, and each has a short timer after which the node will disappear. Faster and more powerful harvesting tools are thus required to extract the maximum amount of resources before a node is exhausted.

    Taming

    • Two new passive pet buffs have been implemented: Decrease Critical Damage & Loot Collection.
    • Several new creatures are available to be tamed across various planets.
    Changes

    • Footstep sounds have been improved.
    • Improvements to draw distance and particle effects have been implemented to improve graphics performance.
    Fixed Issues

    • An issue causing missing footstep sounds in certain areas has been corrected.
    Known Issues

    • An issue has been identified related to the Mission Tracker interface causing client crashes when travelling between planets. This issue will be corrected in the patch scheduled for June 23. Until then, untrack missions during interplanetary travel to avoid client crashes.
    • When accessing the Pet Center Manager terminal there is an internal error dialogue, this can be ignored as everything is working as normal. This is due to the new plot system.
    MindArk and the Planet Partners strive to ensure a smooth and problem-free Version Update. Nevertheless, even after extensive testing some issues may arise after release. Such issues are often addressed via mini-patches directly after a release and in subsequent patches. If you feel that the possibility of encountering minor issues or bugs directly after a Version Update affects your gameplay to an extent that Entropia Universe is not enjoyable, please wait until the mini-patches have been released and any last minute issues have been resolved.

    We knew resource gathering will come... which is great! I wonder if looting various timber from mobs remained the same.

    Pictures of the new woodcutting prof.

    1 : See distance you have with avatar and tree for the glow to show up (taken at max distance)
    Wood 0.png
    2 : Trees can be close together.
    Wood 1.png
    3 : Tree looks like any other tree (tree level 2 in this case)
    Wood 3.png
    4 : Tool can be used multiple times on tree.
    Wood 4.png
    5 : Small tree is level 1, looks the same as tree level 2.
    Wood 5.png
    6 : See the loot, you can get more than 1 pec.
    Wood 6.png

    Additional information:
    You need to have the tool equipped at all times to see the glowy things for the trees.
    You don't have to walk to find trees, you can be running.
    The trees are already there, you just need to get close enough to see if they are harvestable or not.

    Not true, as you seen Arkadian Hornet Trophy been discovered today.
    Also on update days please give it some time for everything to be checked and turned on.

    We're working on fixing this issue so that people like you who finished already will be able to collect your Trophy as well.

    You know, I really really wanted to discover the trophy's, but those that are going to finish the 5k today will get it before me - while I worked hard to get all those missions finished (not pandi, but the puny missions).

    I agree Lizzy, I was the first to complete all stages of Pandi and now I'm in the same boat as you are, someone else that will prolly finish stage 4 will get it.
