Planet Cyrene News: Planet Cyrene March 2nd 2021 VU Notes

Discussion in 'Planet Cyrene' started by EP-Newsbot, Mar 2, 2021.

  1. New Additions:
    Hazard Zone Mech

    - The Hazard Zone Mech has invaded Carnap's Landing!
    -- This new creature can be found exclusively in the Carnap's Landing LA with a variety of levels.
    -- This humanoid mech is a close combat damage dealer with a focus on physical and burn damage.

    Cyrene Officer Armor Plating (stage 1)
    -- While we are still discussing with MindArk the entire situation of the Imperium Armor Upgrade missions, in the interim, we're introducing a series of missions to create Imeprium Armor Platings.
    -- The 1st stages have been approved already, allowing Imperium Armor Plating I to be upgraded into Imperium Officer Plates by Mathaius the Boffin.
    -- Developer's Note, This is elaborated more on this posting:

    - It is our understanding from MindArk that the CODEX is not yet coming to Cyrene. This is something that only MindArk can do, and we're eagerly waiting to hear more information about the ETA for this to be available on Cyrene.

    - A.R.C. Badges should not be kept in the currency tab of inventory.
    - Carnap's Landing has undergone some adjustments specifically due to the invasion of these Hazard Zone Mechs.
    - Fixed various typographical and grammatical errors in items and missions.
    - Adjusted several mineral spawns to improve useful minerals on Cyrene.
    - Tweaked several loot items to assist in drop rate and be available to hunters.
    - Added several player requests and additional creature spawns around Cyrene to reduce mixed spawns.
    - General and varied enhancements to Cyrene have been done as well as changes can and do come periodically to Cyrene, including but not limited to buildings, vegetation, water, map and others.

    Known Issues:
    - The culmination for the chain mission for the Ryvox the Cypher is currently not implemented.
    - Support weapons are not currently working properly, this is a platform issue.
    - All Cyrene vehicles (P.I.G.V., Spear, Lancer, Dragonfly) have default sounds, this will be addressed in a future patch.
    - Some Quality Ratings information in blueprint book: A.R.C. is incorrect, and this issue is still being looked into.
    - A supplementary mission for Rank 5 of Brown Beetles to give proper mission rewards is not working correctly and will be fixed in a future VU.
    - Currently, there is an issue with the Cyrene Graduation armor where the disciple will not receive the correct armor, we're trying to resolve this issue with MindArk.

    Please give RNGesus some time to ensure all items reach their intended recipients and MindArk time to make sure that all missions are activated.

    HOLY SHIT! Mechs are finally here? That only took what? 10 years? In MA time, that's blazing fast.

    Invasion though... that doesn't sound like anything more than a mech mob? I don't get why we couldn't have had mech avatars though years back... after all they did creature control pills...

    Hey hey!

    Unfortunately, it's not those mechs ><

    Yeah, this is correct, mech mobs.

    This was something that we looked at as well once the creature control capsules we introduced, however that system and the pvp system don't work well together.

  5. I just started enjoying Cyrene and their content and I think is wonderful.
    I love the communication to community from Kris and staff.

    I feel awful how MA has treated them..truly. :frown:

    Cyrene is in a unique position among Entropia's planet partners in that it, theoretically, could just stuff HQ into their pocket and change its politics. Theoretically, whether it's worth the investment is a different topic. I'm keeping the popcorn ready just in case. One of the funniest things on earth is watching managers being caught on the wrong foot while basking in their glory.
  7. Your url don't work you linked to kris

    I think it was still my fault, I changed it on the Cyreneforum but not the launcher.
    Here's the link anyhow:

    I'll x-post my quote as well:

    Thanks for the info there Kris, I've got to say, that is a the most direct and informative response I think I've ever seen from anyone involved in Entropia, haha and I wasn't even fishing for one. Glad to know that avenue was looked at though, it's a shame the way it was implemented wasn't more generic/compatible. It feels like it should have been a good start or at least a step in the right direction. I guess though there could be a million nuances or plans you had in mind that maybe wouldn't have made it a good place to start, if something isn't workable to your aims ultimate aims. It would be bad to only be able to half or even quarter implement something then be stuck in a hole you can't get out of, or would have to begin from scratch with.

    Real shame though. I do sometimes think of that lovely calendar I had with all the Cyrene art on and think about what a shame it is that Cyrene didn't quite work out as originally intended.
