    Hey everyone,

    We have focused content surrounding the moon, we have introduced quite a few extra hunting missions including a small expansion pack to the smuggler story line.

    The most important of them all is that We have activated a direct TP from the Moon to Arkadia for the price of 7PED.

    Now let me give a breakdown of the content being released in this update.

    Missions

    New Level 4 & 5 Iron Missions

    Creatures
    • Oompa Warhounds
    • GMC_03_Gammas
    • Oompas
    • Sicarius Brutes
    • Sicarius Commands
    • Sicarius Workers

    Please also note that spawns have changed a bit. Happy hunting...

    There is new story driven content for Smugglers and for PTECH Industries. Keeping in mind these are hidden, so you will have to look for them, but the reward is worth it. This is only part 1 of 4, so many more missions are coming in the next update.

    Smuggler Missions

    The smugglers have now opened one of their HQ's to members who joined their ranks and proved themselves. You will be required to discover an agent that is watching the movements of the cities but is hidden somewhere on the moon. They will tell you what you need to do get your access pass to enter HQ. Keeping in mind that this HQ is well hidden, only those who are worthy will be able to enter.

    Once you gain access to the smugglers, you will be able to see the start of a complete new story line that will hint what they have been up to and require you to obtain a certain series items to be able to get the Smuggler Hazmat suit. This suit will be required for a deep undercover mission. Discover it and find out what lays ahead. There might be a backpack hidden in there somewhere, but it depends... if you answer correctly... Ned will be watching.

    Civilian Missions

    The communications on the moon have had some serious issues of tampering and weathering. PTECH needs your help in repairing the connection and discovering the issues. You will be required to report to the PTECH engineer located at the communication center in assisting them at discovering what might be the problem.

    PTECH will also require you to assist in helping the repairs of the extractors but be warned, it might be a bit radio active but hey, nobody complains about extra body parts right?


    Rewards

    There are a good collection of rewards to be obtain when you complete the missions.



    Events

    Oratan Attacks are back
    Intel has shown that the Oratan have started to move around the bases and plan attacks that will happen randomly, so be prepared, their attacks are as savage as their nature


    ALERT - Smugglers have moved from the Underground to the Moon.

    The smugglers have started showing attention to the PTECH Industries, they need your help.


    Whats coming in the next VU...


    Firstly, we want the members of the IFN to know that we will be working on the expansion of your story line including missions that will take you to new locations and start working to smite the Smugglers. This will require you advance in your PVP skills.

    Secondly, after countless requests, we are working to bring Gold Rush 2019 later this year. We are working on a new set of prizes as well as new ways of engaging this content.

    We have are currently working on a complete series of events that will be player driven and controlled. These events will include hidden passages, new lairs and new creatures.

    We hope you enjoy this update and we look forward to having you on the moon. Exciting times ahead.

    Catch you online

    Please clarify:

    Does this mean the opening is delayed as in it needs patch, or it takes time to open ? (been waiting 10 min for it to open, not sure if i did something wrong).

    I am also not able to get the door to open. I've tried relogging a few times and going back to it later but no luck.

    ya IFN needs a serious boost, I gave up on that mission chain for the most part because ANUBUS upgrades statistically aren't worth it, and the dropship is just a fancier helicopter that I can buy for 30'ish peds instead of doing a year+ worth of dailies.

    Since ArMatrix stuff came out all the PP weapons/weapon amps became rather obsolete if you want high efficiency for supposedly better item drops. So unless arkadia gets a really nice boost to their PP crafted items, and good ANUBUS upgrades the current IFN content is fluff or just not useful in general.

    So aside from more content for IFN, they also need reworking on existing content because aside from the dropship they got nothin, and the dropship is token at best considering there are other transport vehicles ingame that provide the same function.


    As a note... pvp gear is specific, and most players that have it are very high investment players... ie; more likely to be smugglers... and if people can switch sides between smuggler and IFN if they buy the smuggler gear... idk, interested to see what idea's you guys have on it, but I smell disaster for the IFN if their new content is based on "pvp" rather then bonuses for completing more stages of the dailies.

    Most players in the game aren't RPG types, they are utilitarian types that base choices on potential benefit rather then storyline pursuits. If it's a land grab kind of thing for bases, those that can switch sides will go for the "winning" side, which if this type of pvp is anything like normal land grab pvp on caly, is almost solely based on player investment which smugglers on average are going to beat out IFN in spades.

    Smugglers have moved from the Underground to the Moon? Why? I have think you guys make new stuff for the Moon and take not away something from underground, what the underground needs? I have invest a lot of money in underground deeds, what happens now? This sounds not good for me.....

    I wouldn't worry about it, anything on the moon that promotes smugglers will only draw more folks to underground as well since it has smuggler missions to unlock instances and such.

    The mechs were always a temporary thing in my opinion, was a nice boost for a bit. Keep your deeds, I am sure they will continue building ark underground and tie existing area's with new area's via mission chains. And once gold rush gets it's mining event back... oh boy your gunna love that time period :D

    Smugglers was a / also a reason that people goes to the underground and now watch, the moon preforms well becouse smugglers goes from underground to moon. This is not just a nice boost. This upset me, it is talked about the whole time that the moon gets new content, etc. and now something is just stolen from the underground. The players will be missing in the underground. That we can not trust MA i now. But until now I thought you could trust Planet Arkadia, but I realize, even with caution.

    ----> DEV´s what we get for the smugglers now in the underground? How you guys fill the empty space?

    Moon is performing atm because people are trying to grind the buggy new missions, not just because of the mech spawn. UG is still going to be a popular spot for anyone that wants to loot MU, grind the WH unlock missions, grind the Viceroy upgrades, and mine for igni.

    Does this mean you have to have bought the smuggler clothes on Arkadia to do this?
