    Developer Notes #10 - 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.

    This is actually amazing. Will allow smaller planets to have an economy, will make space more interesting.

    Great job!

    HAHA! SO AWESOME!

    See, people, MA DOES fn listen.

    This is so exciting...I am so glad I haven't (permanently) rage quit this game.

    Yes I am sure there will be issues at first, but this is a great and massive step, and I love you MA for it! (now fix the hitboxes)

    AND TY MOST OF ALL TO THE PLAYERS LIKE ME THAT ALWAYS ASKED FOR IT AND THE TONS OF THREADS WE MADE ABOUT IT AND THE SUPPORT CASES! THIS WAS BECAUSE WE ASKED FOR IT!.

    Don't ever forget that the next time you see us asking for change and you feel like belittling us because "ma will never read it"

    Hah! How come every time they respond to what we say or ask for, I'm amazed?!
    That sounds a lot of fun too.
    I hope with this they fix the reported "loopholes" of pirates and other exploits.

    I would be much more apt to stay on a planet if I can get a weapon I need delivered, even if the fee is the same or slightly more than it would be to travel to get it and back. Time, as they say, is also money.
    I also like the sound of them using this extra fees and "returning" it to the player base and not just something they pocket out right.

    Thanks for the Dev Notes also!

    I would assume you can still log out/crash/disconnect/etc.... but your stackable will be in a cargo box on the ship. (much like the auction mission cargo boxes except personal)
