    Universal auction and galactic transport

    In the upcoming Entropia Universe Version Update 15.1 (currently scheduled for early December), planet-specific auction sections will be removed. This change will result in a single unified auction, something that many participants have requested and something that MindArk believes will result in a more efficient and dynamic interplanetary economy.

    After VU 15.1, buyers will have three options when winning an auction that was listed from a planet that differs from that of the buyer:
    1. Pickup at Origin - Items won from auction will be placed into the buyer’s inventory on the planet of origin (the planet where the auction was created). Buyer must then travel to the planet of origin to retrieve the items from storage.
    2. Normal Delivery - Items won from auction will be transported to the buyer’s storage at the buyer’s current location after a specified period of time (TBD, approximately 1-4 hours). This option will incur a small transport fee, based on the weight of the items to be transported.
    3. Instant Delivery - Items won from auction will be transported immediately to the buyer’s storage at the buyer’s current location. This option will incur the same transport fee as Normal Delivery, along with an extra convenience fee.
    The transport fees collected for the Normal and Instant Delivery options will be held in a special transport fee pool. In a subsequent Version Update, transport missions will be made available that can be claimed by spaceship pilots via a queue system that incorporates the available transport fee pool, pilot skills, time limitations, and ship cargo capacities.

    Those missions will take the form of cargo boxes which must be delivered to a destination in return for a PED reward funded by the transport fee pool. Cargo boxes are at risk of being looted by other participants in cases where the transporting ship is defeated in space combat; the looted cargo boxes can then be delivered to the assigned destination by the looter to claim the original transport mission reward. Note that the cargo boxes will correspond to the value of the transport mission reward rather than the actual items traded via auction sales. In this way piracy of cargo boxes will not negatively impact interplanetary trade.

    It will still be possible to transport goods and resources through space in the current manner, though changes will be made in upcoming Version Updates to address currently existing issues and loopholes that allow for risk-free transport of goods and materials through space.

    MindArk believes that this new Galactic Transport system will result in increased activity and efficiency in the interplanetary market for goods and materials, along with more accurate and informative market history data that will benefit participants on all planets. It will also make for a much more exciting and engaging gameplay experience in space and pave the way for further development of space systems including combat, hunting, transport and resource gathering.

    Alpha Core Trading Card Collection

    [​IMG]

    This is the first edition of a growing cards collection. More will be added in the future.

    These card are a collectible, there will be rewards if you collect them all.

    At some point certain cards and finding the right combination and handing them in might give a special item or the opportunity to participate in something.

    In general cards (Alpha Core being first series) will be around for a season. Once the season is finished, trade for prizes type promotions will finish (a new season will begin). At that time the cards are a collectible and you will be given an opportunity to complete your set (details to come later on how). Much of the events around the cards will be focused on who can get the collections first, there will also be mini events where a recipe of cards might win a prize.

    Some card are rare, discovering them will trigger a 'rare item' message. The stars on the cards are to indicate how rare a card is. 1 star being common and 6 stars being rare.

    These cards will be tradable, stackable, and lootable.

    There will be real life sets available.

    In game:

    Is it me or is a pet buff counter productive. Reasoning is that the pet will level fast if you train it for the first time in a while. The attention will soon lower and further training past this provides less benefit. I assume this was put in to encourage slow burn training unless you really wanted to work fast and inefficient.

    Wouldn't it be better though, rather than use a pet buff, to simply wait until tomorrow before training your pet again?

    MindStar9 Floating in Space

    Is the taming system mechanics basically the same as before, but with a pet stables NPC that gives pet buffs that continue to time-out even if you're offline?

    If not, what is different, other than a larger array of mobs that can be tamed, and ... does anyone know where they're going with this to make it a more viable profession?
