Kim|Calypso Interview with DJ Bonnie 2013!

Discussion in 'Entropia News' started by Alainax, Apr 23, 2013.

  1. UPDATE: Interview is done, here is the recording:

    It’s with great excitement that I announce our next live interview!


    Tuesday 30th April 1900 in game time​

    The interview will be held live on air, on Atlas Haven Radio . We will also do a written transcript for those of you not fluent in Glaswegian ;) and a MP3 version if possible.

    We will be covering a huge range of topics including discussing the current hot issues to the latest releases and plans for the future.

    Last time it was really great to put forward questions to Kim on what the community wanted to know, and it seems again there is so much out there to be asked!

    So this year I will open it up to you again – I would love for you to post questions below on what you would like to be discussed in the interview. To find answers to those burning questions im sure so many of you have!

    I will filter through these and hopefully find out as much information as possible :D

    You can post here, or PM me if you like and I will do my best to cover as wide a range of topics as we can :)

    I'm really looking forward to it, and hope you will enjoy it as much as I'm sure I will.

    Thanks in advance to Kim and Atlas Haven Radio for making this possible – and to the community for what I'm sure is going to be an interesting array of questions to follow!

    1. more info about the moon as well as the location of the wormhole in local space.

    2. will drop rate of the parts to make adj/imp/mod armor platings remain constant, or will they become more rare over time?

    3. how much longer will the Egg storyline be drawn out now that it is in the news again?

    4. Are there any plans for future development or sale of NI? (I know its not a calypso question, but it is a huge question concerning the game and the health of the universe)

    5. People are always speculating on the current population of Entropia, what are his thoughts on the population size and changes to it since VU9 as well as his 3-5yr projection and expectations.


    I am sure there are others, ill post them when/if i think of them.

    Have fun with the interview :)


    ps. would love to see a mp3 download since that's about the only way I can listen to interviews

    Good question, number of active players is a hot topic ever since.

    Klas Moreau said: "My goal is for Entropia Universe to double its number of participants by the end of 2013", any progress? Does the Emissary program have the anticipated impact? Does the new Calypso Gateway/Thule have the desired impact on new player conversion?

    Maybe something more Kim|Calypso related: Who's Kim's employer, MindArk PE AB, Entropia Universe AB, Planet Calypso AB? How many employees has Planet Calypso AB? The CEO, Lars Sandberg, does he just have the position to meet formal requirements or is he really working fulltime on Planet Calypso?

    Who's involved in a regular Planet Calypso content release to what extent? MindArk, EU AB, PC AB, Ilunova? What exactly are the responibilities?
  6. When will all the clothing bugs due to the avi update going to be fixed?

  8. One day to go :D

    Narfi - I will make the mp3 available as soon as possible. It should record the entire show there and then ( if I don't break it), so It will be just a case of when I have had the stiff drink afterwards and upload it :p

    It has been a while since I really played on Calypso, so to be honest nothing comes to mind right now.

    Well maybe these:

    - MindArk and Calypso mostly relies on word of mouth advertisement from big sales. You are again doing the same thing with the Moon. Are you not afraid that the hype about these big sales is over and that it will not attract the players it used to, or are you doing this purely to gain money and not to gain new players?

    - What have you done advertisment wise with the money you colledted by selling the CLD. We know from David Dobson that they are planning a big add campaign, what is Calypso planning to do?
  10. *raises hand*

    They plan on not spending any money on advertising and rely on the PP to advertise for them.
  11. "Hi Kim, thank for taking my question. Your last comment about hangars sent hangar owners into a pit of despair. In your opinion will a ray of sunshine ever reach these hangar owners? Any comment other then "I can't comment will be sufficient." "
  12. Hello Kim,

    Very off topic, but one that needs to be addressed. Last night I noted a big update was given to Next Island. Is there anyway that we will be able to know what changes are made to Next Island?

  13. Unfortunately the interview as been postponed.

    Kim has come down with bronchitis. As much as he would love to do the interview tonight, its just not going to be possible with his throat. He has sent his apologies, but unfortunately its completely out of either of our control.

    The show must go on however, so as soon as Kim can speak on air - we will get the interview done! This I promise you :)

    I really feel awful for all those who were excited, as I'm sure we all were - and to those who made special arrangements to tune in, to you I send my heart felt apologies. :(:hug:

    I can assure you if there was anything that I could have done to avoid this happening I would have ( Heck I still might fly over with some throat soother and chicken soup and see if it works :laugh:)

    As it is just now, I have many pages worth of important and challenging questions made up of a wide range of the issues and topics effecting the community- questions created by the community! Questions that I'm sure we all cant wait to hear the answers to.

    As soon as Kim is better, and we get a new date - I will let you know :)

    In the lights of the recent press release:

    What's the difference between MindArk PE AB and Entropia Universe AB? Who's responsible for what?

    What exactly is Planet Calypso AB doing?

    Are Planet Calypso AB employees working on Planet Calypso content?
    Are MindArk PE AB employees working on Planet Calyspo content?
    Are Ilunova S.A. de C.V. employees working on Planet Calyspo content?
    Are Entropia Universe AB employees working on Planet Calyspo content?

    If so, is Planet Calypso AB paying MindArk PE AB/Ilunova S.A. de C.V./Entropia Universe AB for working on Planet Calypso content? If not, who's paying for them? Planet Partners collectively via MA's share of Planet revenues?

    Is the regular confusion of company entities, company employees and their roles on purpose or just sloppy work? Why is that?

    And some more:

    How much of Calypso's revenue is actually used for Calypso development (incl. advertising, management etc.)? If not all of it, why not and where does it go to?

    The mission system, instances system, token system... were these originally driven by the needs of new Planet Partners or original ideas and designs by MindArk? What about other systems? Is it allowed to say which was driven by whom?

    Besides the Mech system, what other systems or major changes to existing systems can we expect? About when?

    From merely a game designer's perspective, do you think the planet partner concept was a good idea? What would you like to be different?

    Very nice questions Tass!! I like the last one in particular! ;)
  17. All great questions, but remember we do not want to scare Kim away. He will most likely want to talk only about Calypso ingame items and most likely the Moon. If we ask him these must needed questions, he will just cut is short and take my Opalo TEN Edition away forever.

    In the future, if you have any questions like this, please do not post them. PM to Alainax. it's better if Kim knows not what he will be asked. :sneaky:

    Don't worry Kim doesn't even know this forum exists, or he's pretty good in hiding it :)
