    In this thread I want to collect some 'facts' about this game and its developer that a lot of people and especially new people will not know. I will start with one and I hope people will follow.


    ... MindArk went bankrupt in 2003 just before the game went gold

    ...the BSA raided the MindArk Offices on behalf of Microsoft and Adobe, quoting licensing issues, but was forced to reveal later on these allegations were false?

    ... in the beginning of the game there was just ONE planet.
     
  4. ....that there was a bug where men wore women's clothing which would then cause the server to crash.

    ....that a Falx can fit in the Trade Center.

    ....that avatars once were able to fly, skate, and slide on their butts. Oh and sit or lay down where ever they wanted too.

    .....avatars could jump down a hill with out damage. We even jumped off buildings without dying!

    Well a long long time ago in a game far far away avatars could gain skills fapping themselves in acid pools!

    (at least that's what I hear on forums it's before I joined)

    .... a long time ago you used to be able to trade with some feffoids (who wore clothes)

    True enough. I saw many avatars either hopping into those and fapping away, or grabbing a horde of snables and fapping away in those.

    Did you know Shadow was at some point so common that people used to TT it?

    No! Really? Seriously???
     
  10. ...there used to be a vision of the future and a plan to get there that was later sold off and reposesed, Now they have no idea what it used to be and simply pump in random stuff.

    ... Kim does not know about the book of the macheen and that storyline is dead.

    ... There used to be Robot wars and that story line is dead
    ... There used to be black orbs related to a story that is now dead
    ... There used to be Karbarok that now shares the look of another mob and is the only excuse for not bringing the mob back.
    ... There used to be naked disfugured women in PVP1.

    ... there is no reason for Radar not working in space considering you can anyway spot other ships with its triangle

    ... Kim has a god complex.

    Let's try and keep things civil in here. There's no need to turn this into a thread that attacks people.

    ... that it was once possible to slip into the houses in Minopolis? Some were meant to be somewhat explored, others weren't, but with persistence, one would be able to enter.

    Hehe harsh but true!

    Nor do I, whassathen?

    There used to be umbranoids... and umbranoid villages.

    hmmm.... not a massive issue really?

    PS I don't think this was meant as a complaints thread

    To expand:

    Following the initial power station detonations brought about by the Base Matrix attack from Akbal/Cimi. Not everyone could be rescued. The fall out killed hundreds however those that survived mutated. Eventually there were two main groups of mutants. The Umbranoids and the Calumasoids. The Calu were more far gone with grotesque spike-like protrusions and deformities. These poor souls inhabited the radioactive wastelands of pvp 3. The Umbras still maintained some level of civilisation living in small villages with rudimentary wood huts, towers and fortifications. While remaining largely humanoid the Umbra developed a hard calloused skin and are bald. Initially they wore clothes but then abandoned these as their paranoia/hatred of humankind advanced. Umbras carried small energy blades in the early days but then one day the Umbranoids were no more.

    Speculation ran wild as to why or what had happened to them. Suspicion falling largely on the large black orbs that appeared all across Calypso at the time. They eventually returned however although this time sporting rudimentary rags to cover their reproductive organs as well as being armed with firearms and utilising harness's.

    The Umbranoid's days were later numbered once again when they mysteriously vanished along with their villages and any sign of their existence during the time of the War Typhon impact. They have yet to be seen since with the only word from authorities being that "they are missing a code". This fate has also befallen the unfortunate Calu additionally.

    ooops I was wrong about the Cala.

    From entropedia

    Can't believe I forgot that. I used to have a cool (disturbing?) picture of what a Cala might have looked like in captivity

    .. Atrax (and other mobs) fit in your storage terminal

    .. there was a time when using a TP would give you a free flight over Calypso

    .. with some messing around a group of people could fly up in the air without vehicles
