    I second that. Spent a few hours today sweating and mining in the area, haven't seen a single item on the ground. If they are there, they are impossible to find.

    exactly =) i dont hid things in grass unless its highly visible like the white rockripper 1 which is extrmely visible in grass. everything else is placed in areas they do not blend in, and stick out. I WANT these items found, it defeats purpose of the event if they are not found. =/

    Beachs, Patches of Grassless areas, Walkways, around corners, behind Terminals, etc are just small collection of areas things are dropped. they are not hard, by all means most are easiest as can be =). there are lots of items being dropped, and enough are being spread out by 3 players dropping at different times of the day to ensure there is ALWAYS items on the ground.

    And besides, i have doubled the value of each days item drop values, so there are twice as many items on the ground. =) please dont diss the event by hinting nothing is there.....that is a stab in the back when u see the true value of items that are now coming out of my pocket, as we have passed up event fund, just to please everyone. Be positive, dont overlook, think, easy not hard areas and u will find them.

    Announcement: Day 30 has increased in value, the true main event is on last day (Sept 08th) Dont miss it, it will be an explosive finale!!!

    Well, I gave it another try today, spent two hours running around, this time specifically looking for items, with exactly same result - not a single item spotted on the ground.

    And believe me, I'm good at finding things.

    So, all these items either picked up quickly after the drop or they are not in obvious spots, at least not those you can think of in a space of two hours.

    I'm not trying to "diss" the event and I also would like items to be there, but they are not, at least not at "all times".

    Just providing my feedback and a fair warning to everyone - items are NOT easy to find, if they are there at all, you might waste hours and hours of your time and you might not see a single item on the ground.

    im sorry you feel that way, but i will disagree, items are there, i know because ive dropped them and ive made the spots easier then first half with half the running and half the looking, i want these items found, just happens u may be looking after they are all found, or just before more are dropped, etc theres many explanations, u are not only one looking, so my guesses are that they have been found already. what makes it harder in your eyes it seems is im not announcing the drops before like i use to, if i did than you would be all over them and no one else get any. that can be said for anyone wishing id announce drops again, try standing in other peoples shoes at that time. I do feel bad u cant find anything, but the items are there....and have become far easier to find, this may result in them being found faster =/

    oh for those that keep doubting, this is a message seen many times throughout the day!!!

    I just registered on here today, I figured it might be worth while. I started on Calypso, found a good soc, and got talked into coming here. I've been searching for days and haven't had luck, who knows, maybe one day i'll be on at an opportune time and find some items i'm in need of. This is NOT the place for a noober :p. Well, at least in my opinion it isn't, Ark hasn't treated me very well, but I'll keep my chin up and keep truckin through the life of an Arkadian non-depo noob :D. Good Luck to my brother and sister noobs out there during the scavenger hunt, hopefully we can find the stuff before the "people that don't need it at all" *cough* sleipnir *cough*

    DAY29, Sept 7th currently active, lots of stuff on the ground and ill be adding ALL REMAINING ITEMS in storage to the drops today, DONT MISS OUT, last chance to catch an item or 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Day 29/30 = 30+ MAKO TRAINERS || FULL Musca ARMOR sets || Weapons Galore

    DAY 30 (September 8th) @ 13:00 MA time
    IFN announces the last of the ships known cargo was located around Quarry Peninsola, It must be found at all costs. IFN also gathered the information from the Ships logs, showing the Treasure Hold is lost as well. The Database shows the contents (Diamonds/Emeralds/Garnets/Amethysts) are all missing. These precious Stones must be found to prevent Oratan from claiming the treasure!!!

    It is vital that Colonist find these items we must not allow the foul oratan to gain an upper hand. IFN is allowing colonist to keep what ever they find to inspire the finding of these items.

    GOOD LUCK EVERYONE AND SEE YOU ON DAY 30!!!!!!
