    I smell a massive rat. This (combined with what everyone else said) sound like an absolute nail in the coffin. Reading between the lines it's sounding like they are getting rid of all the awesome custom keyboard mapping, and making everyone click on icons on the screen.

    All in the name of throwing away code they don't want to fix by the sounds of it.

    Honestly, if it was good they wouldn't:

    a) be getting people in to sing it's praises in such a weird (fake sounding) way
    b) have people finding it takes time to get used to (read "stop hating")
    c) be making stuff up about how changing the camera should impact server performance by "reducing scripts"

    If it was good they would

    a) not be keeping it a secret (it isn't connected to economy)
    b) be posting videos

    I don't take my laptop home at night anymore. The only games I play are mobile, and there are some fun mobile games out there.....
    I would probably play Entropia more again if it was tapping on icons and less need for a keyboard........ Either easy natural setup for remote access with mobile, or if they had big plans and actually got it ported running on mobile.(obviously still on same servers)

    Nope. I was actually serious. Out of the others mentioned in Jak's post, I met at least David Westmoreland in person a while ago. He didn't strike me as a major fanboi either, but things could have changed over the years.

    Who is the paid staff? I'd assume Nighthawk or the guy nowadays parroting MA in a community-manager like tone is one of them, but I wouldn't know any others. Unless that new mod on EF is considered "paid staff"? I at least noticed he was one of the guys I quoted.
     
  7. sir as you know/shuld know PCF as a subsidary of Mindark . So de facto PCF moderators ARE MA employees. MANY posts on your forum about htat shir - its beyond argument. Yes darkonia. An MA employee going to met his employer.....^.^. Enough said
     
  8. Darkonia the MA forum mod for 1. Read posts here (not made by my) to know about at least 1 oher offial MA employee who went. Maybe was 1-2 civilians. Brainwashed fanbois lol. 100% at least 2 of ''the invited'' where already MA employees ehhehe rofl (is no point saying PCF mods are not MA - that argument was fought and won a long time ago ON THIS VERY FORUM ;) ))
     
  9. Darkuriki is a player and a mod on pcf. You could technically say he works for Mindark if he actually gets payed. He is basically a player from Canada. I don't know if he payed for the trip to Gotheborg. If he got the tickets for free, then I guess his opinion has been payed for.
    If all the ifs are not true, then he's simply a player and a mod on a forum.

    I'm with Spawn on this one. To the very best of my knowledge, moderating on PCF is voluntarily, and unpaid. I'm quite sure it comes with certain perks, but calling someone a paid employee seems like a stretch to me.

    Ludwig most likely is getting paid for things (hence the MindArk tag). 711 is most likely getting paid for hosting stuff, though most likely everyone involved will claim it is as an external consultant (whom MA apparently push onto planet partners, as is the case with Toulan).

    And I don't doubt that the majority of those who were invited are/were fanbois. Heck, I'd certainly not pay a flight to Sweden just to snuggle up with MA for a few hours of unpaid work, even if it did mean a free diner and drinks.

    However, I did a bit of checking, and slupor hardly seems like a fanboy to me. He might not complain as much as some of us on this forum, but he's certainly not blowing smoke up MAs ass either. That's why I picked his post as the example. If MA managed to give someone who regularly complains a good impression, it might mean that they're not as bad as I thought.

    I'll still remain skeptical, but at least that bit made me move a wee bit towards MA. With that said, I'm a long long way from being convinced they actually give a toss. That'll completely be up to their actions. Pretending to care for a few hours can be undone within minutes when the next VU is another bugfest or nerf party ;)

    Sure ADD a new mobile friendly UI - but keep the old stuff for the rest of us who like to use a PC and keyboard

    Well just been over to the other forum to leave a few comments. The thread seemed to have gone strangely quiet. BTW did the Gold cards actually go yet? or have they given up on removing that one?

    I'm starting to think the camera system changes may be end for me and Entropia. So I'm readying myself for the very real possibility that it may all be over soon. I'll be keeping an eye open for a potential new home. Jamira, if I go, we'll talk.
     
  13. Dont forget me, I still try to get myself into the closed beta of "generation zero".

    But in the end I want to play "Tabula Rasa" again...fuck you Garriott !

    I know of oldtimers that still use their goldcard...

    oh yeh... I remember that trailer (generation zero) . Maybe I go look...

    Oh wow just looked up Tabula Rasa while I was there... NOW I properly understand you McCormick. It looks like what Project Entropia should have been! Hell even that preview screenshot speaks volumes of a story unto itself

  15. Sadly all of those videos are so blurry... :'(

    The official trailer shows and explains best...why I went there :'D




    These gamepaly videos cant really catch the atmosphere you had, while actually exploring the world.
    The little details...suddenly, a shuttle with enemies landed next to you...the faune, the towns...the love...what a world.

    Glitches and bugs close to non existant. Which was good.

    "Enjoy" the day, when the servers shut down...in HD ! :'D *sniff*

    You're welcome.

    My GC still works (today). Logged in for a scan to make a statue of theProphet. But this was definitely one of last times I logged in. I will deinstall Entropia Universe soon. Final cut even.

  19. A silent thread on the other forum ? No communication you mean ?
    You must be kidding ! The CEO himself has spoken ! How dare you !? x'D

    The camera system should/will/might arrive shortly...after intensive beta testing ofc...and it should/will/might be flawless...
    we all must get used to it anyway, so no need to discuss improvements or dislikes yet (or even afterwards),
    as the family said, it is too awesome to describe !

    What if it should never arrive, one might ask ? Why would you even think that ?
    The CEO himself has spoken ! x'D

    Dont forget, he even plans to host an AMAgeddon...sOoOOooOOoooOn...
    Until then, lets wait and SEE, like always.

    I really really hope it doesn't... along with the scrapping of the Goldcards. I would like to see this particular "content" end up on your blog and no where else. Certainly nowhere near the game.

    I ask you... who ever heard of a developer who tried to improve performance by restricting the view area of the game and locking people into a fixed uncontrollable camera? What's the fucking point of a sandbox MMO if you can't properly look all around you?
