    Taking the change to write down that a resource list was added to the forum's section, aswell as an informational thread on the mutated madanas.

    Links:

    The tax is still at 2% and will continue to be so until the beginning of March.

    Also, entropedia's entry on the MuMas has also been updated thanks to Arkadia Officials and Crazy cf Fish, who made the effort to update several of the items on the page. Thank you.

    Informing that the promotional tax of 2% will be applied until February 29th and then the following will be applied:

    Hunting tax - 4%:
    • To accomodate for potential events coming up later on;
    • So that the LA has enough sustainability and room to expand;
    Mining tax: 2.75%;
    • To justify the cost efectiveness of mining in my LA at present;
    • To help sustain the LA and allow for expansion;
    ALA4's Shop:
    It is my intention to populate it with items that will improve everyone's survival throughout the Land Area, however progress has been slow on this matter as I have been pretty busy IRL to manage it all out.
    The shop will also be sporting a beautician studio of my own to provide some lovely looks to all you arkadians! Keep in mind though, it is still in the making and thus looking quite bare at the moment hehe.
    For those who are interested in coming to ALA4, but don't really know what to expect from it, follow the following links:

    In other news, I have been attempting to find a proper name for the LA, and am open to suggestions from the Arkadian community. I have some ideas in mind already after some ingame talks, however more is better as someone told me once, so please direct yourselves to the ALA4 name thread to "throw me some bones".

    Reinforcing the fact that entropedia's entry on the MuMas has also been updated thanks to Arkadia Officials and Crazy cf Fish, who made the effort to update several of the items on the page. With this update people are now able to evaluate what is the best armor suitable to counter the MuMa's damage outputs. Thank you.

    It is now March and the intended regular taxes are now in use:

    Hunting tax - 4%:
    • To accomodate for potential events coming up later on;
    • So that the LA has enough sustainability and room to expand;
    Mining tax: 2.75%;
    • To justify the cost efectiveness of mining in my LA at present;
    • To help sustain the LA and allow for expansion;

    ALA4's Shop:
    I still don't have enough research of feedback to make out what to do with the shop, however Madana texture related goods, as well as other items that may need madana material have come to mind, any feedback on this would be awesome however. The intention of the shop is not to provide huge amounts of profit, but rather to serve those who come to the LA and need a leg up to fend off against the MuMas.


    Progress on the LA's name is going slow, for the most part due to my own fault as I haven't had enough time to ponder over the issue. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, write them down at the ALA4 name thread. Your help is greatly apreciated.


    Reinforcing once more the fact that entropedia's entry on the MuMas has also been updated thanks to Arkadia Officials and Crazy cf Fish, who made the effort to update several of the items on the page. With this update people are now able to evaluate what is the best armor suitable to counter the MuMa's damage outputs. Thank you.

    Fixing the hunting tax a wee bit down to:

    Hunting tax - 3.9%:

    Would love to hear some feedback on maturity changes, I am thinking of lowering them a bit down a bit further to accomodate more types of hunters.

    Taking a chance due to having some free time to make an April's update for the LA:

    Hunting tax - 3.9%:
    • MuMa maturity is at a medium value, making them now easily huntable with medium range gear, such as Viceroy + 5b's;
    • MuMa density is at a maximum with two dna's, so it's plentiful for the hunters interested in hunting them;
    Mining tax: 2.75%;
    • Will be keeping the tax low in order to compensate the miners who wish to get up there to find some high markup ores and enmatters on the LA, and don't want to hunt the MuMas;

    Due to a recent knee injury I was forced to take some time off, in order to keep up with work IRL, I would like to apologise to all those who have been hunting and mining on the LA thus far, supporting it how you can, I really apreciate it, aswell as all the feedback you have been giving me thus far.



    ALA4's events:
    I have been planning some events for the LA of several kinds, and am at this moment planning the rewards of them, in order to balance the reward with its sustainability. I know a lot of people have come to hunt over here and have nothing to be looking up to in terms of rewards on my behalf, ending up feeling bored and move on. That will change soon, however I do hope everyone understands I want it to be rightly balanced, so it's both rewarding and sustainable, and until I find the right tune I won't be going forward with them. This also does not mean that the values of the rewards will be fixed permanenty, they can be adjusted upwards or downwards if required, in case I can sustain higher rewards for example.

    ALA4's Shop:
    I had to put the shop ideas on hiatus at the moment due to no time at all IRL to handle everything. I can barely log in as it stands, but that will be changing soonish. Madana texture related goods seems like the way to go, as well as other items that may need madana material.

    Progress on the LA's name is still a bit slow, however I have been quite inclined on naming the LA Starkiller's/Sentosa's Reach/Niflheim. I created a poll on the ALA4 name thread with the suggestions I found best so far. Your help is greatly apreciated.

    Here comes the first update of the year:

    Hunting tax - 3.9%:
    • MuMa maturity is between Dominant and Old Alpha, with the occasional yet avoidable Prowler, easily huntable with medium range gear, such as Viceroy + 5b's;
    • MuMa density is at a maximum with two dna's, so it's plentiful for the hunters interested in hunting them;
    Mining tax: 2.75%;
    • Will be keeping the tax low in order to compensate the miners who wish to get up there to find some high markup ores and enmatters on the LA, and don't want to hunt the MuMas;

    Finaly some holidays! I am still quite busy at work with many responsibilities being handed to me at this moment, however been talking to Atomicstorm and have great news in the events section!
    The maturity was adjusted a wee bit more, and now you will be seeing lots more Dominants and Old Alphas! Good to go for those good MU weapons to drop properly :) You might see the occasional Prowler aswell, but can't have it all my way I am afraid, further tweaking will need to happen to see if I can manage to not have the spawning every now and then.Either way, they will not interfere with your regular hunting, as they are quite scarce in number.


    ALA4's events:
    I am very proud to say that we are now working with Atomicstorm (owner of Songkra Valley and Khorum Coast) and thus we are actively participating in the Arkadian Alliance - Go Swirl Yourself Monthly Competition (2017) which is currently underway already! You can check the leaderboard here. We are slowly reworking the graphical aspects of the competition with new banners and minor adjustments to the layouts, so stay tuned.
    A grinder reward is in the works to be implemented aswell, as soon as I get some free time from work to implement it properly, to reward all the faithful hunters that decide to dare and face the MuMas.

    ALA4's Shop:
    The shop is still on hiatus, being mostly used for my beautician services. No planning as of yet in terms of service expansions.

    February's update is here (a bit late I know):

    Hunting tax - 4%:
    • Tax has been changed from 3.9% to 4% to be on par with Songkra Valley and Khorum Coast's taxes;
    • MuMa maturity is between Dominant and Old Alpha, with the occasional yet avoidable Prowler, easily huntable with medium range gear, such as Viceroy + 5b's;
    • MuMa density is at a maximum with two dna's, so it's plentiful for the hunters interested in hunting them;
    Mining tax: 2.75%;
    • Will be keeping the tax low in order to compensate the miners who wish to get up there to find some high markup ores and enmatters on the LA, and don't want to hunt the MuMas;


    Sentosa's Reach (ALA4) events:
    • The Arkadian Alliance - Go Swirl Yourself Monthly Competition (2017) which is currently underway! You can check the leaderboard here.
    • I am focusing on updating the leaderboard graphics as of this moment, aswell as an Arkadian Alliance logo for general usage. After that I will focus attention on new mob information panels for each land area and some advertisement maps for them aswell. The current maps have already been updated and are standing by to be implemented on them as we speak.
    • A grinder reward is in the works to be implemented aswell, as soon as I get some free time from work to implement it properly, to reward all the faithful hunters that decide to dare and face the MuMas.


    Sentosa's Reach (ALA4) Shop:
    • The lighting for the beautician studio has been greatly improved upon.
    • No planning as of yet in terms of service expansions.

    March's update:

    Hunting tax - 4%:
    • MuMa maturity is currently between Dominant and Old Alpha, with the occasional yet avoidable Prowler, easily huntable with medium range gear, such as Viceroy + 5b's;
    • MuMa density is at a maximum with two dna's, so it's plentiful for the hunters interested in hunting them;
    • I am making an active attempt at adding new DNA to the mix, such as Mutated Owekos and Mutated Kianas into the mix, in order to provide some much needed diversity to the Land Area, and further density. You can read up on the thread I created to this end, here;
    Mining tax: 2.50%;
    • Lowered the tax from 2.75% to 2.50% to be in tune with Longtime's Land Areas taxes on the activity;
    • Will be keeping the tax low in order to compensate the miners who wish to get up there to find some high markup ores and enmatters on the LA, and don't want to hunt the MuMas;


    Sentosa's Reach (ALA4) events:
    • The Arkadian Alliance - Go Swirl Yourself Monthly Competition (2017) is currently in it's third part! So far it has been growing steadily in popularity and the prizes keep evolving aswell. You can check the leaderboard here. For more information on the event, check my signature or click here.
    • I am finishing work on the learboard graphics, and have finished a first version of the Arkadian Alliance logo. Will be keeping it from the public eye for now until we establish it as our official option. After that I will focus attention on new mob information panels for each land area and some advertisement maps for them aswell. The current maps have already been updated and are standing by to be implemented on them as we speak.
    • A grinder reward is in the works to be implemented aswell, as soon as I get some free time from work to implement it properly, to reward all the faithful hunters that decide to dare and face the MuMas.


    Sentosa's Reach (ALA4) Shop:
    • I made a decoration overhaul on the beautician studio section, and would like feedback on how it looks. If people pass by, let me know what you thought of it either through PM or through the forums.
    • No planning as of yet in terms of service expansions.
