State of the Universe Address 2015

Greetings Entropians,

First of all, everyone here at MindArk would like to extend thanks for your participation and support of Entropia Universe throughout the past year. Our plans for 2015, outlined below, have been designed to provide an increasingly exciting and rewarding real-cash economy gaming experience for you. But first I’d like to briefly review some of the improvements to Entropia Universe that were accomplished in 2014.

Firstly, my apologies for the time it’s taken to respond to concerns posted here on Arkadia Forum regarding the keys for the Aakas Instances. Until an investigation was completed I was unable to comment.

I can confirm, and hence eat some humble pie that my advice was wrong. The value of the keys was not passed through into the loot of the instances as it was supposed to do. It was certainly going to the loot (I knew 100% it wasn’t coming through as earnings), however it wasn’t paying out as it was supposed to. Mindark and Arkadia Studios have worked together to confirm what was happening and agree upon what shall be done about it.

  1. All participants will be fully refunded the TT value of the keys used since the last update...
Changes

  • Universal ammo can no longer be discarded in the Trade Terminal.

Bug Fixes

  • An issue preventing the rejoining of instance areas in some situations after a client crash has been corrected.
  • An issue causing ambient occlusion (SSAO) to render a halo around objects has been corrected.
  • An issue preventing The Entropian issues 2-4 from being placeable in estates has been corrected.
Entropia Support News: Longtooth performance test event
During the last Longtooth event two weeks ago we gathered a lot of information that has shown truly helpfull in analyzing bottlenecks and performance issues inside Entropia.

In order to further investigate some of the bottlenecks in the system we have installed additional log and measurement equipment in areas primarily related to network connections and server redundancy. To test these areas of the system we will launch another event similar to the one held on January 13 tomorrow, January 27 2015.

Longtooths will spawn in Port Atlantis and near Camp Icarus at the following locations:

Longtooths with shared loot:
