David Post :Next Island MMO is relaunching

    Next Island is frustrating. And removing the restrictions in Greece is wrong. It was the whole fucking point of having time travel in that you can't just turn up with a laser gun if a laser gun isn't invented. I would accept some sort of "only if you can get away with it" system like with NPCs roaming the area and anyone who gets spotted with wrong clothes or gear gets TP'ed (knocked out and wakes up in) to Jail. That would be kinda fun but such customisations would never be allowed.

    Would love to be a consultant on NI and be able to input into it but again. Never gonna happen with the way MA work.

  3. Do the sandals and clothes still cost as much as they used to when the restrictions were in place... 5 peds or so for a pair of sandals I think...

    NI clothing was cheap. Certainly cheapest dress like thing in game for sure
     
  5. And once again, nothing is happening or getting updated anymore regarding Next Island,
    except for old screenshots getting reposted on facebook for the gazzillionth time.

    Official forum dead, no word of David Post anymore and soon 1 year anniversary of "We have/had plans".
    Post and BIG got infected with the MA virus ?

    Ahh thanks for the update... Poor old Nesoi Makeron

  7. Other than thebes, if things have not changed Greece is empty space like rt was pre apocalypse etc... I did climb highest mountain there when I went but it was boring and dull

    No content really

    Same, some good views but there was very little content in the landscape of AG. Such a waste, it could have easily been so good. Imagine missions where you have to hide something in the past to retrieve it in the future. So much potential.... sigh...
     
  9. -The relaunch of Next Island got announced in Oct. 2016

    -Old screenshots got advertised as brandnew content by BIG Industries on facebook (Oct. 2017)

    -The mobile version never got mentioned again (you could apply for the beta more then 1 year ago)

    While the "creator" of the mobile version of Next Island has quite a lot of clients he did work for...

    ...there is no sign of "Next Island" and his youtube account died 1 year ago:

    Another one bites the dust ?

    Sounds like it. I had some convos with folks on FB about it but yeh, whoever I was talking to was clearly just a player. (I'd offered writing services should the planet re-launch but all they could offer was that it was players making support cases in the hopes of fixing bugs).

    I'd say dead.
     
  11. I got so bored one weekend...I offered to make free video ads for NI...but because there is nothing new to SEE, they (the facebook guy) told me they would inform me "right on time". Which never happened.

  13. McCormick was that your trailer?

    It seemed to be too ‘straight’ to be yours but you might have been showcasing your ‘non-sardonic’ video talents? ;)

    I sort of liked that video apart from the fact that NI was mega-boring hence it misrepresents the actual game experience.

    I like the music... and the trailer starts well with the space stuff (space does look good - even if it isn't really). There are quite a few shots I'd have not included because they look really lame. No mention of Time travel (it's only the USP/only original thing about the planet). A lot of the captions I wouldn't have included either. Like someone had their mind in the 10 years ago to think these are good ideas for advertising now.

    At least the PC adverts were actually appealing in the right way. I do think the "older than average" player base is actually a good selling point for Entropia. I've heard bad things about MMOs populated by kids.

    Conclusion: I wish people would hire a programmer for a bit to fix one or two bugs rather than endless PR exercises that flog a dead horse. Fix the horse, the horse can be fixed.

    edit: it isn't too hard to pick good scenes/shots to use to make the game look good. This is a really old one even (of RT but you know)

  15. Wistrel, your screenshot alone would have been a great NI ad...with the word Next Island on it.

    The video has no love, no details...just epic overkill music and a decent beginning...

    Well, once far in the past NI was a real hope for me. Sis Kristin already inspected homes for us to settle in Ancient Greece (like she did when Arkadia popped up). Alas ... just another unfullfilled dream. I think we both will have a look for NI/AG next days again. Good old times even ... And for Toulan probably ... depends to the mood.

    P.S. Harrrrr! Kristin asks Wistrel to meet at Ancient Greece! LOL! The skirt!

    Skirt?

    I'll let you know when next I return there. I really should get off Calypso some day... but actually I keep finding interesting missions to do...

    I guess I shouldn't complain about that really.

    I actually interrupted my holiday on NI just this morning to catch some Steelbirds. Sure will be back. There is a small but really nice resident community on the island now and they're trying to make the best of what they're given. If you need an occasion to give yourself a push for the long flight, maybe here is one:

  19. It was always the player(events), that tried to make this dull world become alive (again). Not MindArk.
    Which is ofc very sad.

    Yeh, my best memories are stuff like Ms Coach's 12 man opalo hunts. One of birthday soc hunts where we teamed opalos on spiders and, by far the best was the race around the space port. The Atlas Haven Radio commentary made that awesome. Oh and AHR's Apocalypto event was also great awesome!
