  4. For those keeping a eye on "Project Ion" trough the Entropia Planets forum i would like to share the release-notes from the new update.

    Took the post from the official website.

    Hello Everyone,

    Before dumping the official 0.5.9. release notes, I'd like to thank all of our regular suspects for their patience while we were finishing this new VU. It took us a while to overcome the erratic fps behavior after the engine update, but things are running very smoothly now. From observations (after silent launch yesterday) the server actually consumes 50% less resources and almost no increase in CPU consumption with a bunch of players hunting (each other [​IMG])

    Alright, and now on to the official introduction. The most noticeable additions in this update are the new PvP areas, one of which is shown on the map. Be careful in this area, even though it appears to contain a lot of valuable resources, you will lose all your raw materials upon death. The resources will be contained in a bag and can be picked up by anyone. The other PvP area is a small cage in Zion where players can conveniently challenge each other and practice their twitch skills risk free.

    We hope you enjoy the new update and report any bugs potentially still lurking under the hood somewhere. There are also some nice surprises left to find out for yourselves and perhaps you might even find some clues in the following release notes.

    release notes 0.5.9

  8. I actually managed to spend a few hours today without interuption...I like it. It's early of course..but it really had the PE feeling to it.
    I spent the time exploring looking for Hemp and wood...but it really had a nice feeling. I'll be spending some time there I think :)

    Thanks for pointing it out guys...nice project!

    Yes, I actually just watched that video on FB and it looked like fun for sure. Obie and I are going to see if we can manage to have a go with it just for the experience, but not exactly sure when yet. We'll let Leo know on FB when we can fit the time in. :thumbsup:
  11. Very awesome! Just watching that video brought back such great feelings. maybe there;s a home for some of us old cranky farts yet! :D

    But maybe i'm the only one that got that weird feeling like I was on a real adventure when I ran up that ramp in the old matter if it was my first or 100'

    I honestly thought the spirit of PE was dead....glad it's still alive.! This video clealy show's it's not the graphics but the feeling ;) Really loving project ion. :)

    Looking good... the landscape could do with prettying up some but I guess that is low priority behind basic systems
