After doing a fair amount of treasure hunting (enough to get to about level 10 if I had used a new avatar) I find that the main problem is that for 99.99% of it there is no difference to mining for ores and energy. In all the T-hunting i've done i've only managed to get a single SOOTO. I keep at it hoping to get a piece of the new armour, but I know that in a few thousand drops when I finaly get another SOOTO I am most likely to get a vase, and instead of being pleased with this i'll be totaly pissed off that after so long all I got was a minor treasure and i'll have to drop another 10k or so probes in hope of getting another treasure. In order to keep treasure hunting interesting and different to the other mining we really need to be getting more SOOTO. I don't expect to get one every run or even every day, I also don't expect to be getting great armour tresure all the time, I just need something to hold my interest. So can the ark team please try to figure out a way to increase the number of SOOTO and make treasure hunting fun. We could have a couple of rare 'ores' drop (like handsidian and angel on caly) or you could create a load more treasures (a lot of work) but It seems the easiest and most interesting way would be to let use find parts or fragments of treasure. Maybe we find a fragment of pottery and have to put it together with 5 or 10 more pieces in a refiner to create a vase, or we find a strap, metal shielding, padding etc to put together to make a complete piece of armour. I think this would be especialy good if these fragements could not be sold on auction so that treasure hunters would have to seek the parts from other T-hunters to complete something, maybe having weekly swap meets ATM treasure hunting is very little different to mining for ore, when just a little more thought and work could turn it into the fun and exciting proffesion it should be.
