"UM this isnt right. no notice nothing. i lost 80 ped on top of the large key cost. even the lockpicks and instances in Hell are doing it."
"We will arrange for a refund for you Please PM ND inside RT"
"Dungeon Managers will be able to Opt out of this system. The Idea is to actually add value to running Dungeons not to add to the existing cost for the sake of it... Once we get the events started it may work itself out so it might be worth taking a wait and see attitude... We actually were not aware that the Fee was charged to the Ped Card, we were under the impression it was deducted from the TT value of the Key... So we do understand the disappointment here. Which is why Dungeon mangers can opt out if we cant make the system equitable."
"In the Meantime we are hoping to add in world notification ASAP so that you know when Ped Snatcher is at large"
"How many hours have you spent in the sweat circles lately? Looking to create some extra funds for ammo, or to repair your weapons and tools?"
"Earn money through completing tasks on PEDflow.com, or through our mobile apps. Each time you complete a task, you will be rewarded with PED! Infact, singing up today automatically earns your 25PEC!"All items that you wish to trade can also be displayed on the website for other to see, navigating threw what is on the website is easy, and the process of adding, changing and removing is very simple.
"PEDflow brings you a simple to use, free item market to sell any item you might have. Just post what you have, add a price, and wait to get an offer or purchase agreement. It's easy, and waiting for you!"As this is a recently released website, currently there is an advertisement drive to acquire new members, and more features are expected to be implemented in the future.
"This is a good suggestion and something we plan to include in a more general update to the auction interface."
"With the auction system being such a central part to EU what are your plans in modernising it?"
"We do have quite a few plans to implement new features for the Society system, several of which were inspired by suggestions from the community. Unfortunately we cannot give any time projection on when those might be implemented."
"We plan to increase the number of employees at MindArk during 2019. This will allow us to focus on more projects and delivery them more quickly and at a higher quality."
"MindArk has renewed its commitment to focus its resources exclusively on Entropia Universe for the foreseeable future."
"As stated in the message to all ComPet Deed holders, there is no ongoing development with ComPet; any revenue it does generate is being accumulated for a later payout but this is expected to be quite small."
"There are no immediate plans to move Entropia Universe to a new game engine, but we do of course keep ourselves informed of the latest developments in the game engine scene."
"We do indeed intend to put more emphasis on lore and storyline. In fact, we have a dedicated Game Writer and all-around loremaster (James|MindArk) who has been heavily focused on the Calypso storyline for quite some time now."
"Our development team was focused on big structural changes and design for the Mayhem events, as well as the release of Loot 2.0 along with general stability improvement for the client and platform. Now with those projects in place our team will have more time for content development. We have also added more resources to the content team and this is something you will notice in 2019."
"In the past there were technical limitations to shared mission progress when teaming, however this is now possible for new missions with the contribution-based features seen in recent dynamic events and Mayhem quests. Our plan is for new missions to utilise this system. Loot 2.0 also gives us more flexibility with item and creature parameters, so look forward to some exciting new items and content in the future."
"We also later made adjustments to reduce volatility in the crafting and mining systems, but that was not directly related to the Loot 2.0 system. Those adjustments were in general very well received by the community, based on feedback received via support cases and forum discussions. The Crafting and mining systems are constantly being monitored and tweaked."
"We are actually currently working on a mining event that will happen alongside Easter Mayhem, stay tuned for more info soon!"
"Development of space in Entropia Universe has certainly progressed much slower than we have wished or anticipated in the past, which led to premature announcement surrounding potential space features or other design plans. We understand that this has led to frustration within the community, and we apologize for that."
"Our vision for space is one in which there is a healthy and vibrant interplanetary economy between the various planets and space entities. We also envision space-specific content, but we are not prepared to share specific plans at the moment."
"We do plan to ultimately add space ships within different classes and with additional functionality, but that would be part of a larger Space release."
"In the beginning of 2018 I had been thinking about the idea to sell Crystal Palace. It has been a great honor and it has been very exciting, fun and rewarding to have owned it all these years. But it was on my mind that perhaps I needed to move on from Crystal Palace, as owning such a large investment didn't make as much sense anymore for me due to real life issues."
"I asked Mindark again about this issue and what can be done. After these discussions they suggested to me the idea to turn Crystal Palace into a Deed sale. I felt very optimistic about this new idea! A new evolution for Crystal Palace. It was not only a great solution to selling Crystal Palace as I had been thinking about all year... But it really felt like a win-win situation."
"This would give many players, hunters, and investors the opportunity to own a part of Crystal Palace! I love the idea of that. The future of Crystal Palace could be great. Having large amounts of people who invest in it would mean more would want it to be successful. This could bring new opportunities for events or other exciting things that could happen in the future. And all of these positive things would increase the revenue for all of the future deed holders."
"Mindark would be taking care of the deeds, sale and everything they need to do in order to implement and make this a reality. They have valued Crystal Palace and they will share the sale revenue in order to accommodate this change and costs associated with such an endeavour. After the announcement many people have been asking me for more information about it. I hope MA will be able to give some more details for all those who had questions about it all in the near future."
"A few years ago I sold Oil at Camp Icarus when I had a constant supply of it coming in, while I was advertising that I sold Oil, I repaired peoples vehicles for free.
Not only did this help people to continue using their vehicles, consuming more Oil in the process, but also people saw me as a friendly face, and was more likely to return to me for Oil.
The amount of Oil sold covered the cost of repairs and also led many people to return and continue to trade other items with me."
