    Earlier today @Kris - Cyrene announced the start of the long-planned and long-awaited "dynamic upgrades" phase for Planet Cyrene. Here's the original post:

    [​IMG]


    Introduction:

    This is the Cyrene Dynamic Upgrade Map. This will show the progression of the different land areas based on player activity here on Planet Cyrene. As the areas progress through their levels they will undergo upgrades or unlocks based upon their level. If any particular are stagnates or has low progression there will be some side effects in that particular area as well.

    So, in short, if you want an area to change:

    - Complete missions
    - Interact with creatures
    - Mine for resources in it

    The following shows the current available land areas and their level 1 and level 2 available upgrades. Additional upgrades will be available in the future at higher levels.

    Land Areas:
    • Great Plains
      • Level 1 - New Mang Chang & Rhino Beetle maturities.
      • Level 2 - Pet maturities of Mang Chang and Rhino Beetle (although the details are still being hammered out with MindArk)
    • Ice Plateau
      • Level 1 – Zyn’Nix come out of hiding with additional story and daily missions.
      • Level 2 – Summon the lord of the Ice Crystal Golems in a boss summon event.
    • Imperium Fortifications
      • Level 1 – Dedicated Imperium Officer spawn.
      • Level 2 - Imperium Trials wave spawn event.
    • Isle de Zel
      • Level 1 – Additional Zeladoth maturities.
      • Level 2 – Zeladoth wave event and associated with a mission.
    • Mer Beach
      • Level 1 - Additional Merfolken Gladiator maturities.
      • Level 2 - An underwater Mefolken hunting ground.
    • Ngu Volcano
      • Level 1 – A dedicated spawn of Old Jack.
      • Level 2 – A new magma chamber opened to explore.
    • Panton Jungle
      • Level 1 - Paneleon Kill Point mission.
      • Level 2 - A new creature with maturity range and Iron Missions.
    • Robot Base Z.R.Q.
      • Level 1 - Additional Skyshatter maturites.
      • Level 2 - A new creature with maturity range and Iron Missions.
    • Turrelion Desert
      • Level 1 – Additional Living Vortex maturities.
      • Level 2 – Duster Gang Item Spawn PvP Area.
    • Zyn Forest
      • Level 1 - A new scavenger hunt mission unique to the Zyn.
      • Level 2 – Zyn Pyramid Spirit Shaman mission.

    Some areas can only be upgraded through other areas progression; these areas are called Meta Areas. The requirements to upgrade and the level 1 upgrade are listed for the following.

    Meta Areas:
    • A.R.C. Staging
      • 5 Areas are at least level 1.
      • Upgraded staging area and Turrelion Area with additional content.
    • Miner Isles
      • All Areas are at least level 1.
      • Special Mining Zone with Additional Mining Missions.
    • Sky Labs
      • All Areas are at least level 2.
      • Animal Behavior and Modification Laboratory Instance.

    Closing:

    Keep in mind that other changes to the Planet Cyrene will happen that are not part of the dynamic upgrade map. These changes will happen independent of other new things that will come, like missions, items, and events.

    Thanks for reading and thanks for playing on Planet Cyrene.

    I love the base idea and hope it does what I think they want it to do. I love sandboxes that are truly dynamic, not just forced-byhand-dynamic.

    wow thats sounds truely intersting!!!
     
  5. Btw. what has happened to the original ideas from the past ?

    For example "Join different fractions" ?

    What happened to all these "bug-mutants" that stood around doing nothing ? Nothing ?
     

  6. What I'm interested in is if Kris works for the C-Team or is just a forum moderator?

  8. Ok cool. But we have to remember that they are trying as hard as they can to keep afloat so I hope all will work out for them.

    I'm usually around all the Planet forums lurking just hard to make time to post everywhere and respond to everything in a timely fashion.

  13. This universe is evolving so slow...I just accidently walked past it.

    @Kris
    Mind to comment on "joining different races" ?

    Hello!

    Sure, that is the faction system. Gaining reputation with other races to get access to special missions/items/etc.
    Right now we have 3 alien races on the planet that you can interact and do special chain missions for:
    The Zekkonians: A humanoid bee like race that smith weapons made of crystal and amber.
    The Zyn: A shamanist race of beetle humanoids that can feel the energy of the planet itself.
    The Turrelions: The masters of PvP and are willing to help for the right price. No one has seen them without their full armor.

    I hope that answered your question!

    Cheers,
    Kris

  15. Not above your bed i hope? joke :wink:
     
  16. Dont get me wrong, I still have Cyrene in my heart,
    but with "joining a race" I expected something more like :
    "Click Zekkonian/Zyn/Turellion - Get quest - Gather items - Click Zekkonian/Zyn/Turellion - Change landscape / Amount of mobs"

    But ya, the prepared "background info" for each race already sounds creative.
    So it might be indeed a "MA happened".

    Again, I like your approach of "meta areas". MA had planned that for many many years by now.
    "kill many robots = area will change" "dont kill robots = area will change as well".
    MA failed.

    The MMO called "Tabula Rasa" by Richard Garriott made a great approach with such things
    already back in 2007. Now I neither like Mr. Garriott, nor do I like NCSoft. But Tabula Rasa I felt in love with. Too bad it went offline in early 2009 already. My 1st attempt, to escape Entropia.

    I felt in love with Entropia in 2004. But its coldhearted attempts sometimes really scare me...
