    Over the years you have enjoyed various vases and pots, paintings and interesting materials.
    The question I put to you is, what treasures would you think appropriate to be made into a reality?
    Suggested treasures must be thought about carefully, including comments on the use of the treasure and any potential effects on the economy.

    I will start;
    I would like to see whole mob skeletons in treasure loot. These can be mounted as statues or as an ingredient for crafting.

    Treasure chests! Wouldn't it be great to loot a treasure chest which has two purposes.
    1. A cool new container
    2. A rare treasure item inside.

    Artifacts: The collection of rare artifacts. Once these puzzle pieces are pieced together, a reward can be gained from an NPC.

    Keep those ideas coming!

    Cheers
    Bjorn

    How about pieces of a skeleton as well, so you will have to collect them all before you can mount them. Like how it's done in alot of museums, etc (since it's rare to find a full set of skeletons for the bigger dinos). 7 pieces, similar to how our armor pieces work out.

    Then someone can craft a base for display, and then it can be mounted. Imagine a big mounted dino skeleton in one of the LAs.

    ;)

    Word is that mechs and pets are coming... maybe these ancient technologies can be brought back to life when someone digs up the remnants of the old world technology?... mech parts that can be assembled in to a fully working transformer/gobot style robot vehicle might be interesting... oops, wrong planet... ok, pets... hmmm... necromancy comes to mind with digging up all them bones.

    What about actually useful stuff? Neverdie had to find that old school radio playing thingy in the Port Atlantis bank somewhere in the virtual universe?... perhaps treasure parts can be assembled using old resistor, wires and tubes to assemble something like that since no one in their right mind would actually pay the amount MA wants them to to copy Neverdie's little stunt there... so why not have Mindark Give it away via little treasures that can be combined through systems like the treasure hunting...

    Same goes for other 'useful' stuff in game... still a lot of possibilities.

    I like your enthusiasm but Arkadia team has a very limited capacity, they should focus on making treasure hunting actually a viable mining profession - have actual usage for the materials. There is no point in talking about these special loots before treasure hunting materials are actually needed and have some balance.

    There is some use for most of the treasures atm, now virtually all of them have a use and aren't really TT food anymore. If we can increase the amount of resonation amp bps that drop it would increase the volume and improve the demand. So yes, I agree that maintaining treasure MU is important.

    Other than that tho I would like to see:

    UL mining amps (though maybe it would be better to find these in the underground)
    UL gun amps, UL melee amps

    UL armor platings

    UL Ark flying vehicles

    I also like the idea of turning in multiple parts to a NPC in order to get a certain item, anything to give people achievable goals that take a good amount of work is great. I think this suggestion was the most popular before treasure mining came out and people were just speculating what it would be like.

    Well, they might be in some recipes, but looking at prices and sales volumes - clearly A LOT more should be done about it.

    I and II. Don't recall prices but SB was lowish and BO was in line with MU history.

    Technically everything should be found mining or treasure hunting. By the time this stuff goes thru a mobs ass Im pretty sure its in a non usable let alone salvageable state. Miners should be finding armor with body parts still in them where they were dismembered by a mob but not eaten. Piles of gear where a hunter dropped his pack so he could maneuver better to try and stay alive or run away faster screamin like a lil gurl on halloween. About the most you should be getting out of a mob is some guys bent up weapon IF you got to it before the animal puked it back up or it was digested to the point beyond use.

    Hunters should be out there skinning mobs and hackin body parts for salvageable dna.
