  1. Next Island Content Release


    May 1, 2012 / EU Release 12.6


    Today’s content release introduces Dark Lysterium, offers new missions, and introduces new blueprints, including the Hoplite Gloves and the long-awaited tropical clothes!
    New Mineral

    Dark Lysterium Common mineral lysterium, in the alternate dimensional reality of Next Island, sometimes takes on strange properties.
    Missions

    Axonic Diodes At the end of Samuel’s mission, he says he’s still missing a small but vital piece of his logical circuits, so Crystal Center’s crafter Malcolm Campbell has decided to make a workaround for the very last part Samuel needs.
    Arthur’s Secret Crush Arthur, the Official Island Greeter reveals a not-so-secret crush on a special lady.
    Helen’s Super Epic Hunting Adventure! Huntress Helen Venture sends the player on a super epic, very dangerous hunting mission!
    Beachside Fashion Sara Murray is showing off a cute new tropical shirt down at the Crystal Bay tiki bar. Do a favor for her, and she’ll show you how to make one too.
    Blueprints

    Lesser Elysia The Elysians developed this synthetic fabric to stay cool in the jungle and stay warm on cold island nights. You can purchase this blueprint from a technician to get started crafting clothes.
    Island Shirt
    Elysian’s Tropical Top
    Hoplite Gloves
    Many new components like Campbell’s Basic Framework, Helen Venture’s Walking Stick and Chrysoberyl Fasteners.
    Fixes / Modifications

    To Infinity and Beyond! For new arrivals to the island, we’ve changed Mary’s challenge to unlock Greece. Instead of choosing the correct argument in favor of time travel, 1314-Mary now wants players to prove themselves in the Elysian virtues before she’ll judge them worthy of the secrets of time travel. This introduces more of the Elysian backstory, and makes travel to Greece more epic and exciting. Don’t worry, existing time-travel crystals and the existing cave location have not been changed, so existing player won’t be forced to re-run this mission.
    Loot Revisions We have made some changes to the locations and frequency of island loot. We plan these revisions to make sure items are dropping as designed, and specifically to make starter missions and blueprints easier to complete.
    Shepherd’s Beach Tom Shepherd’s mission, Inventing A Color, and Bess Mackenzie’s first mission, Genetic Research 1, are now daily repeatable missions.
    Enchanted Village These scenic spot is no longer home to a backwards, flying river. We built a dam. Just kidding, we remodeled the river.
    Upcoming

    We have one more piece of island clothing on the way, but we encountered last-minute difficulties. We expect this to be available in a patch next week.

  4. Is anybody able to get the mission from Helen?
     
  5. Actually, I can't seem to get any new missions. Sara doesn't speak and none of the others seem to be offering missions.

    Friends, we're not sure what's happened with today's content, but we seem to encountered some issues in the publishing process. We're working with Mindark right now to diagnose what could have happened, and then to solve it. I'll let you know as soon as I know.

    We apologize for the delay and inconvenience, we are all really looking forward to this release.

    Things seem to be fixed now, just got the mission from Sara and got the BP then made the Island Shirts!

    Also saw that someone discovered the basic framework, so that mission must be up now too. Will keep exploring.
     
  12. Axonic Diodes, Arthur’s Secret Crush and Helen’s Super Epic Hunting Adventure! are all working now, though Helen is the only one of the three with a '!' above her head.

    Seems that some of the mission givers with more than one mission are weird about these ! and ? signs. When in doubt, start a dialogue and check for missions that way!
