  • Version Update 11.6

    MindArk Version 11.6 were released today with the much sought after step 2 of the Dynamic Content distribution. You should now have a much smoother download experience, with prioritized downloading and manual handling of what planetary systems you want installed. You're now able to log in while the rest of the game downloads and you can pause and start the download at your will.

    Logging in for the first time should be a little easier for newcomers now. Account creation have been simplified and integrated in the download process. And Genesis have been introduced. Genesis is Entropia Universes' new start room; this is where all newcomers will pass through before moving on to another planet. Character customization is now done in this area, and there are some small tutorial-quests which can be done here while the planet of choice downloads in the background. The new account holders can also try different garments on and chat with other avatars.

    Following are some pictures of Genesis:



    We ask you kindly not to make new accounts in order to just see the start room.

      Why not leave it open for everyone so that we can check it out?

      Also, are there transportation fees to leave this place (since it's not on a specific planet by the looks of it)

      It is not on a specific planet no. This is a platform Entropia area - a place you go before you hop on to the planet of choice. No transportation fees of course.

      So, when a potential new Calypso colonist starts he or she will visit this place first and then Calypso Gateway?

      Yes, on the road to Calypso you will go Genesis -> Gateway -> Calypso.
      Afaik, the Genesis quests is not profession related, so there is no newcomer hunting, mining or crafting quests there.

      So the new people visit here first and then what? they chose which planet to go to when they are ready? Makes it hard to know what planet partner attracted them to the game if that is the case, id be royally pissed off if i did advertising and lots of new people came then saw a different planet and decided to go there instead.

      It does look good though, let's hope it doesn't look so empty.

      I really would love to see Genesis... but I understand why you ask not to create new accounts. Would be nice to make another 2 hour visit time as you did with gateway a while ago.

      When Planet-Planet TP's are removed, you really should make this so you have to travel through Genesis to get anywhere.

      It would create an inter-planet hub, which would be good for interplanet trade and travel.
