    wow mate, + rep that is most generous of you. Myself and I know i speak for the new players here as well thank you for that. This event is quickly becoming one of my all time favorites. People like yourselves taking the initiative and getting involved to help out the players that need it most are what is making this planet so much better. The community here is unlike any other =) and im proud to call myself an Arkadian as well.

    And again for the announcement people love to hear.

    NEWS FLASH!

    In breaking news today it appears another container was deployed just before the IFN equipment supply ship carrying Trade Terminal supplies was attacked. The crew being aware that mining equipment was desperately needed to aid the mining industry on Arkadia jettisoned an Imperial Class XXVI container into orbit to avoid the attackers.

    It has come to light that the container re-entered the atmosphere overnight and broke up littering the Celeste area with TerraMasters and Rock Rippers. The Oratan are trying to gather them to stall the Arkadian mining effort.

    You are ordered to seek out the mining equipment and start mining to boost the Arkadian mineral and energy matter economy, good luck to all. If senior members of the community find the two piece sets, please distribute to the rookie miners!

    Very nice initiative, Few Scars, errr General Longstaff!
    (This is what I love so much about Arkadia's community. I see sharing and kindness vs. greed and egoism all over this lovely planet. *thumbs up*!)
    Hurry up, you novice miners, I just scouted the area wanting to find some hides of the new Osteloks (do they even drop any?)and saw at least two sets of fine mining equipment on the way. I'm sure still lots more to find for you.

    Reports have come in from high command on numerous crates that were thought to have vanished in the ocean have washed up on shore, FIND THESE Weapons before the Oratan do!!!

    If you find the crates, please be generous and dont take all the weapons, leave some for your fellow arkadians.

    Reports also indicate the sudden location of many weapons scattered around Celeste Harbour. AGAIN LETS NOT ALLOW THE ORATAN A VICTORY!!!

    simple Plea to all those players out there.

    this is designed as a new player event, please if you don't NEED the item, leave it for new players. And if you do find items, please try and be considerate to others, as there are only a certain number of items, and the variety is different everyday. Try not to hog the items.

    Lots of new players are getting frustrated because they are not finding anything due to slightly better players with vehicles hogging the items. I know its a free for all event, and all i can ask is please be considerate and not greedy.

    several players in several days in a row have found over half the items and claimed them all due to finding them, specially with vehicles. As i said, if you DONT need an item, please dont take it, if you find a Gyro, use it till its gone, then look again, this IS a 30day event. too many people are hoarding these items when they dont need them.

    so again i ask the community to be righteous and be considerate of your fellow new players. Greed is not the answer, Compassion is, and compassion will bring you a long way, this event is designed to lift up the new player a bit and provide a boost to create future longterm Entropians.

    mmm... it's not my business but it's better not to advertise the beginning of this events like you did on the day 11 and not to post screenshots.

    newcomers can't outrun vehicles and VTOLs, and I bet my VSE Mk 1, all your items are gone by now.

    ... or maybe it'd be better to drop certain random amount of bullets on the ground and then give items to those who give you the ammo, location info plus good old agi below 30 check.

    sorry for the off topic but I recalled an event where newcomers with agi <30 run from old PA to another TP thru some spawns and there were some prizes for those who came first, that was fun

    That was The March on Troy!!!!!! my greatest event hehe also probably one of the biggest new player event in history of Entropia Universe (Well only first one can claim that)

    Back back on topic, Day 16-24 will all go unadvertised, i will post each day to bump the threat, however no official start time will be given!!! have to look for them, will be constant supply on the ground

    ok Day 13 till go on, however, i will start earlier on the low end advertising from now on, i will not post starts, clues, etc here UNLESS its necessary for that day. i WILL bump the thread daily, and direct players to the thread, this event has gotten outta hand, and im tired of explaining to new players why people with vehicles are not letting them find anything.

    I have pleaded with the general public too many times and its gone unanswered, im sorry but this is only way left to guarantee fair event, i want to help new players, not greedy players creating second avas, and people dressing as new players for a quick free buck.

    i didn't want to do this, but it seems i have no other choice, so expect bumps daily, but no more advertised start times. I will drop items through the day, every day. and will advertise only ingame to new players, i will advise Advisers to do the same, thanks for all your support guys, was hoping to make this fun event but many have ruined it for others. Day 13 starts today, so no tricks no gimmicks, NOTHING is dropped in water, or areas not accessible by foot, i do tend to avoid top of buildings on most cases. and event area remains the same.

    If you have questions ill be at Celeste Quarry. Happy Hunting!
