MindArk: Fishing System & New Render Trailer

Discussion in 'MindArk' started by McCormick, Apr 20, 2013.

  1. As I dont want to bother the high court of "Planet Calypso Forum" anymore, Im going to post this here.

    a.) In mid 2012 Kim Timkrans said, the fishing system is ready and it will be somewhat different. It is nearly mid 2013 now and again I realized, how much and how fast time passes between MindArk announcements.

    b.) 1st announced to be ready in november 2012, the new render trailer with a human actor as Sayah King, didnt yet make it to the public. Daivd Dobson just told me (14th april of 2013), that they are still working on it and that it will hopefully not take any longer.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, place your bets !

  4. Yes, from what understand it's going to be released very soon. From what I understand is that they first will be releasing Pets and then soon after Fishing.

    Well one thing impacts another in this case. Certain stuff just wasn't worth implementing without new avas. For example clothes armour etc for the PP's too much work to create for a system that is out of date. They did anyhow but I imagine they were not happy about it. This is probably why most of the ND stuff is just re-texturing of the old models from caly.

    So yeh the video needed the new avas which were delayed. Pets need the new avatars so are delayed. Fishing probably similar. Mechs need them too I'd imagine. One of the new planets needs the pets so that will be delayed.

    The other one was I think they were talking of the CLD's being banded together into 3x3 grids so we could build on them? Wasn't that early 2013?

    MA never change. "If there is hope, it lies in the Proles" ;)

  8. Fishing system? Does this mean there will be fishing rods to catch them with?

    Personal opinion:

    No fishing system please! Most planets have a sci-fi/high-tech setting. While fishing might be an enjoyable extracurricular activity it's not really fitting.

    If you want to play fishing you might want to try

    There are for sure other missing or existing systems that should have a higher priority. For example the whole society system is really undeveloped and outdated.

    So no fishing, golfing, knitting, gardening, etc etc etc please.
  10. I hate the idea of fishing so much I had to pause it after 40 seonds ;)

    I see where you are coming from but actually I'd say its fine. Your argument is akin to saying in a high tech world people only do hi tech things. In our current world we have plains trains and automobiles.... but we still skate, ride horses, cycle or walk.

    People still knit and home bake/cook too. They still read books in the age of TV.

    from some radio interview with Kim the other day where he speaks about taming and fishing.

    "Kim: yeah.. its pretty much in the same state as fishing actually, for the moment. It only exists on paper. Simply because it’s a massive system, we want to do it right this time. But then the health maturities you saw the last time around with the taming system, and no I can’t give dates because we done it so many times in the past and schedules tend to change."

    I wouldn't believe Kim as far as i could throw him to be honest, In mid 2012 fishing is ready and now it's on paper. It's embarrassing to watch the same shit every time "we want to do it right" why do they want to do this right but everything else they are more than happy to do a half arsed and buggy? boggles the mind, must actually think were morons and believe them each time.

    And to those who don't care for taming or fishing... plenty do, i personally don't care for fishing but if it makes the game more enjoyable for someone and attracts people then good, guess I'm not selfish.

  13. Maybe fishing/taming will be the new "Pen & Paper" part of Entropia. SEE, we got the awesome android one-armed-bandit "crafting app"...so why not pen and paper...

    I'm running a sort of crafting newbie experiment at the mo. Basically SEEing how long I can cycle for and does it make any difference to skills etc. or even how high I can get my carpet tiles (aka basic filter bp)

    using the android slot machine means I can do craft runs at work which passes the time I guess...
