    New Planets - A Little Info

    David Simmons called me last week about my interest in developing a new planet for Entropia. I don't have much information I'm allowed to give here due to an NDA, but I thought I would let everyone know that what you can expect to see on new planets is basically anything someone can dream up.

    My understanding is that anything you want to do can be done with your planet so long as it falls in line with the general basis of Entropia.

    They are selecting planet owners that will cater to specific niches. I personally was interested in establishing a planet focused around sports, music and mystery inside a violent world. However, I've decided to begin development on my own RCE game called Zempa Universe of which a team is being put together.

    There is a chance down the line that I will take Mindark up on establishing a planet as it seems like a fair enough deal, however, I would like to get a bit more into the fabric of MMORPG and the associated economics and establish my own RCE world prior to engaging in a planet in EU.

    In any case, those of you looking to work together on your own planet or something should start with 2 million in funding in the least for development costs over the first couple of years.

    I wont go into the specifics due to the NDA but if you have the money, I can see how this kind of partnership could be beneficial. Just dont expect to develop a planet and suck the life out of Calypso as MA only wants developers capable of marketing their planet as a stand alone product with little mention of EU. The idea is to cater to niches and draw new people in, not recycle current players.

    Hope this helps anyone interested.

    So is Mindark asking you to be a spokesperson for their product , seems a bit odd you are advertising your own product while posting about theirs.

    No, he just wants to advertize his product and posts some info from MA while he's at it... although there is almost nothing we didn't already know...

    And about the things we did not really know, I am more concerned about the subject "did he really have permission to post that?"

    Oh well

    It certainly does help, although most of it is old news. Good luck with 'Zempa Universe' it certainly sounds....full. The '2 million' is that dollars or PED?

    'Recycling' 40k active Calypsians is not a Marketing Strategy I can see bearing fruit, it would certainly be worsened by looking for a niche in an environment with increasing competition. - Thanks for your efforts though.

    2M PED or USD?
    Anyway, from what I've read about you, and your willingness/ability to invest in EU, it seems way out of your league.

    I think you made a very good point there .

    Good luck with your new game. If i ever hear of that game in the future through some friends, the internet or some sort of advertisement, I may come try it. Sounds like a very big project to undertake!
