    Hi all.

    I am the fortunate "winner" of a deal with David Dobson to do a live interview on Atlas Haven Radio with the man himself, sometime after the update . No date has been set yet, but will be as we get closer..

    For that, we of course need some good questions that he can answer, and we need help from the community for that.. I am therefore asking you - the community - What do you want to ask David Dobson??

    Post your questions here, and we will compile the best ones (not sure how many questions will be picked yet) into the most awesome interview in the history of AHR (imo)..

    I just want you all to bear in mind that the interview will be after the big update, so some of your questions will be answered by the update, and you might get some new questions coming with the update, so therefore i will of course let this thread run till a day or 2 (or more depending on what date we choose) after the update, so that everyone has a chance of letting the update sink in and think about/post new questions.. I will of course credit all questions to the original asker on air.. :)

    I hope you will all post some awesome questions so that it will be an outstanding interview with the best Planet Partner CEO in the history of Entropia Universe.. (no im not overdoing, i honestly believe so)..

    The interview will be recorded, and uploaded to the forum afterwards, so that those who cannot listen to the show has a chance to listen too..

    Greetings from Zume - DJ at AHR..

    PS: For the site admins: if you find that this thread suits better somewhere else on forum, feel free to move it.. And if possible i would love a sticky on it.. :)

    For now.

    Are getting Arkadia (space) vehicles pretty soon?
    And are there any previews of them?

    Is the A-Team open for a "design your vehicle" contest?

    This post is subject to changes related to the upcoming VU :D

    Regards,
    Ion

    Mr. Dobson,

    Besides standard Land Area purchasing and simple housing aquisition, what types of plans do you and your creative team have for player integrated development of the various areas on Planet Arkadia in the future, to set your project apart from generic Entropia?

    Dear Mr dobson
    Will Arkadia get its own set of Hangars? If so, will they be generated by looted parts being combined?

    Cheers
    Bjorn

    More to come as I think of them...

    • Is research continuing into Dr. Lee's alternative fuel cells for vehicles?
    • Will the series of caves scanned by IFN Newton ever be reachable?
    • Are the smugglers, ie: missing militiamen, going to have more presence in storyline?

    Just wanna add that you are more than welcome to ask more than one question.. The more the better.. And i understand those who wish to wait till the update has been here..

    And i would like if ppl could be specific and write their questions as direct questions.. its kinda hard going by "something about treasure hunting" and stuff like that..

    What ingame plans does arkadia have in the short term (6 months), to make their planet different from the other planets. What is Arkadia's Unique Selling Point (treasure hunting, doesn't count as an answer :))

    EDIT:

    Ok i want to change my question to: Why do you put a lot of effort into make clothes for Arkadia, sure they seem nice, but tailoring is really a dead-end crafting profession since clothes don't decay. So it will give a short boost to the economy, but nothing lasting. Why not focus on a whole lot of newbee missions with storyline instead?

    Is there a possibility of having the community assist in the creation of Arkadia missions? Like holding a contest to create the best mission storylines?

    IMO, missions are one of the best parts of the game for noobs, but only if they're creative and interesting. Not so much the "kill x000 oros", but complicated missions that take some thought, maybe even teamwork, and give new players a chance to experience some of the awesome places on Arkadia, as well as find new TPs. The current archeology mission is a nice start, btw (even tho there's no skill reward, at least players get to explore different areas of the map).

    Along the lines of missions... is it possible to make a white stag mission? What I mean by that is a mission to find and hunt a mob which is mixed in among other mobs of the same sort, but this one is a different color (or other visible characteristic) and it's so rare that it takes a lot of searching to find just one. Reward might be some skill like health, stamina, perception, psyche, etc. Would be nice if noobs could hunt it, either solo or with a small group. But it'd be interesting for big mobs too...

    Preserved for the time when I formulated my question properly, but I guess you all know what it will be about already ;)


    EDIT: quick question if you make it before I got the real one :D

    When can we expect the Arkadia brawler weapons to be available and why is it not higher up on the "to do" list?

    I know several people I sold Calypso TT fists too asking for the next brawler weapon once they max it and I have to explain we dont have it on Arkadia and thats feels kinda wrong to tell new people that so please speed it up as everyone I sold the fists too love them so we really need Arkadian once soon!

    With the new update coming, and the new and much needed Arkadia bps to give us all things to make and resources to sell, are you giving up on interplanetary trade in exchange for a sealed planetary system that's safer?


    If not, what things besides finished weapons or cloths made on other worlds, are there going to be that the traders can shuttle from planet to planet. We understand that space and pirates can be dangerous but I've sen many people who liked that, something new and exciting, and doing away with trade between worlds will take that away.

    Next, the story said that the Oran had taken over the planet from the Arkadians some time ago, that means they had to have a space fleet to travel here and do the job.Are there any times in the future when some of the Oran space fleet might be discovered crashed on the planet for salvage, or in space to be fought and either destroyed or captured? It would add more special adventures to the planet and be something unique to Arkadia, since they have no reason to attack Caly, since they were never there.

    I fought drones on Caly and brought one down some time ago, I walked over and looked it over carefully, it was a delta design and good looking, I seldom deposit unless its an emergency, but to be honest, I'd pay a few hundred ped to fix that up and use it..just to have a more special vehicle that not everyone has, or can just go out and buy.

    Hope I'm not out of line to add a comment :)

    Stackable resources make up only a small portion of the things we currently transport through space (passengers, vehicles, weapons, tools, bp books, crafted items). The thing that drives trade is price difference between one planet and another, and there's no reason to believe that prices of any given resource will be the same on different planets, even if those resources are mined/hunted on all planets. For example, take frigulite which someone mentioned in another thread. Maybe it will be a bit rare on Arkadia, or maybe there will be a rush on an arkadian bp that uses frig, resulting in a high demand (and therefore, a high MU) on Arkadia. If it's cheaper on Calypso, people will move it through space as long as there's a chance to profit by the trade. So I wouldn't say this update "does away" with trade between worlds. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this update spurs even more interplanetary trade than we see now, since it will help Arkadia's economy function more smoothly and give it the ability to grow.
