    It being featured so much in the story and being the capital city, is there a reason it is not available by default?

    Really! Seems wrong. I'm betting they will fix that if they want people to spend time there, gather etc.

    That's a fair point; maybe one that could be answered by 'A Team'.


    *Btw I've moved this thread to the correct section (geography) to continue this discussion*

    It should be where everyone lands when they come from another planet, but not the new players.

    It would be nice to have it added as a discovered TP, since it's such a big complex!

    Yes but it would be like discovering Hades all those years ago and the disappointment of roaming those empty streets. It needs something to bring us there. How would you have reacted to a thriving Hades?

    I personally would like the main tp there to be a default as well, because it is such a central point in the storyline, and is actually the only real city at this point. Newcomers could have fun finding the rest of the city and the three other tps around it, and yes, it would then have a better chance of getting more busy for traders etc. No idea if this was choice for a specific reason, or an oversight that may get fixed tomorrow, guess we will have an answer soon though.

    Celeste Harbour was deliberately left off the default TP list for launch to encourage exploration of the planet. All of you who have been to Celeste Harbour know it will be extremely busy once things settle down, especially once the shops and apartments are operational.

    Celeste Harbour will now be added as a default TP.

    Not much of an explorer (anymore) and mostly busy shooting stuff instead of enjoying the game environment. But on my third Arkadia trip i thought i must get those Celeste TP's before heading down to Caly again. So took the time and drove all north to south east collecting some TP's on the way.

    Comming from north east over an hill those bridges showed up and that was a really cool and enjoyable moment. Really like the design of those and the town as well. Thankfull for getting a bit of that "explorer feeling" back.

    I apreciate the exploration too, but what I even more apreciate is to see an official answer, fast, precise. And in many threads. Gives me the will to stay here forever tbh ,-)

    I don't know I remember trying to get to had's when I first started, and when I did it I remember it was kinda like finding the oil rig. When you see a huge city on the map and you want nothing more then to get their to see it in all its glory it makes the trip all worth while.

    Man was I fooled by that ghost town.

    I really appreciate that Celeste Harbour was not on the default TP list, even though I was suprised about it.

    Had no idea how to find it until I re-read the back story and found enough clues to pinpoint where it was and then I were able to reach it at the first try.

    Gave me a "feeling clever" moment when I found it using the clues that were given out. Well done.

    And yes, it really is a nice place.

    I didn't see much of it as I was travelling in the dark. :(

    I think this is similar to Twin Peaks on Calypso. That isn't a default TP either, but it's well worth getting and that encourages travelling. Although it seems that it isn't much of a trading hub yet; 8 Coins seems to be that
