  2. There they go again punishing the non-rich and LYING about their plans! When will MA wake up and realize the game is DYING and is in such a POOR STATE!

    Ever since (insert bizarre, random complaint) in (insert random VU) I have lost all faith in MA!!!

    They DID realize the poor state - at least partwise. You may see it by watching all this browsergame activities. But we've all learned from the past that MA's biggest problem has ever been to develop a consistent plan and follow it consequently. So this announcement isn't really surprizingly but persumambly a dead-end street again. Like the shop contest once.

    If you make the map based on EP wiki we will add a few PED as a prize :)

    Hey, what if we make this a co-op project? Some work was done already: http://www.entropiaplanets.com/wiki/Planet_Calypso_maps_and_locations

    But the thing is... someone with the skills required to create such a map would make multiple times the value of those EU items when utilize those skills in the 'real word'.

    It seems they are expecting an image as your entry, which would be outdated the moment you send it in I guess, so this is again a useless event (if you can call it that).

    Also none of the data available out there right now is up-to-date, so this would mean you go out there and find every creature on the planet and log it on your map. Or are they looking for the best 'base' map without the actual creatures on there. All a bit confusing to me.

    But, I must say it is a nice change pf the usual events, but done wrong if you ask me.

    Feel free to use the map I have of Eudoria as a starting point. Can provide it in AutoCAD (easier to add stuff at the right coordinates that way) if needed.

    Now that the we've switched servers how about we look into mapping? Creating the "Creature Location Map of Eudoria on Planet Calypso" as a community project? Maybe even a dynamic map? :)

    CRT had a member who started a project a little while back to make a high res map. I think I spoke to their leader a little while back though and he said she hadn't been around in ages (I was interested in helping/knowing how they did it). I have a copy of the first section of the map somewhere (and I think it wasn't full res either!) it looked really ace!

    I just tried to upload it for you to see but security error....

    I got all sorts of high res data from Stave, just before he quit. If only I could remember where I put it.

    [edit] Found it

    That sounds right, was it Stave who produced the original then? Didn't know they quit
