Hi, i know my account on this forum is fairly new, but i feel compelled to provide some feedback on the riptor spawns. i dont think i have to explain how important the mining resources are to keep the economy going, and when two highly respected and active miners in the entropia community like mayana and pigbenis (ok i had to cough a little, pig) "feel cramped" http://arkadiaforum.com/showthread.php?4321-Miner-feeling-very-cramped-by-new-mob i think it is wise to take note of this. In case that thread went unnoticed by the devs i thought i would revisit the subject here. For a miner it is important to be able to mine with as little distraction as possible, and placing highly aggressive mobs on good mining locations that contain resources valuable to the community is about as distracting as it gets. In the thread i referred to people suggested wearing armour or asking for hunters to escort them but these suggestions are not really practical, there just aren't enough hunters hanging around waiting at all hours with enough ammo to make this feasible, and wearing the right armour while being swarmed by riptors while trying to extract a claim would cause a level of decay that no miner is looking for, especially since none of this decay is returned through the claims, we already have extractor decay, refiner decay, finder decay, fuel use for our vehicles etc. to contend with. I dont know if the devs have tried aiming a extractor at a claim while a swarm of mobs is bouncing you around so i hope you will take my word for it when i say that calling it distracting does not cover the experience. I have noticed that the arkadia devs are willing to listen to feedback from the community so i hope you will take into account the resources under the ground when placing aggressive high decaying mobs on top of them, both for this case and in future.
