    Dev Notes #20 - Mission System

    Hunting Mission System

    Since the Entropia Universe mission system was introduced in VU 10.8.0, there have been continuous updates to the system to increase usability, improve features and expand into new areas of gameplay.

    With the original introduction of the mission system, there were only five missions available; this number has grown over the years to more than 4000 missions currently available in Entropia Universe. In this Dev Notes article we’d like to inform you of our plans for the most significant overhaul of the mission system to date, which is planned for release in the third quarter (Q3) of 2019.

    Planet Calypso will be the first planet to introduce the new mission system. The other Planet Partners will transition to the new system soon afterwards, once any issues are resolved and any necessary tweaks and adjustments are implemented.

    Main Features
    • Hunting within a team or participating in a Shared Loot event will now reward all contributing participants relevant progression in their missions based on relative contribution (whether the contribution is made by damage dealing, healing, or scanning).
    • Missions requiring kills of a specific creature will automatically begin whenever a qualifying creature is killed, removing the need to first interact with an NPC or mission terminal.
    • Once a mission stage is completed, an interface will appear with reward(s). The next mission stage will automatically begin, even if you decide to choose rewards for the preceding stage at a later time.


    Bestiary
    The Bestiary is where you will find all relevant information regarding your avatar’s current progression in Hunting Challenge missions.

    Implementation
    As this is a completely new system that will replace the current mission system, progress in existing missions unfortunately cannot be carried over into the new system. Therefore, we are taking this opportunity to give all participants an alert to the upcoming changes several months in advance so that they have time to complete any active missions.

    There will also be a grace period where both the new and old systems will work in tandem, during which time kills on qualifying creatures will result in progress on both the old and new versions of the Hunting Challenge missions. This grace period will extend approximately one month from the implementation of the new mission system.

    Example
    You have the current “Iron Atrox IV” mission active. After the implementation of the new mission system, for each kill of a qualifying Atrox creature, you will receive progress on the new Atrox Hunting Challenge mission as well as on the legacy "Iron Atrox IV" mission. If you fulfill the requirements for the Iron Atrox IV mission during the grace period, you will receive the usual reward, but you will not be able to begin the legacy Iron Atrox V mission. Instead, you will automatically receive the next stage of the (new system) Atrox Hunting Challenge mission.

    When the one month grace period has elapsed, all missions from the old system will be disabled for all participants. Progress will no longer be possible for the deprecated missions, and uncompleted missions will not provide any rewards.

    There will be a similar grace period of one month from the implementation of the new mission system for Planet Partners. More info and specific dates will be provided as the Planet Partner implementation draws nearer.

    Finaly shared killpoints for teamhunts, this has been asked for so many times
    Also nice to fuck up my progress on missions...

    Edit: If it's true that all mission progress is gone, that means over 9 years of grinding missions for nothing. It will be the final step to the EXIT door for me.

    This is a fantastic change that many of us have been asking for, for quite a long time. Thank you!


    Edit: Alright now that I've had my cup of coffee I just realized how stupid it is for us to lose our current progress. Why do we need to lose it anyways? Surely the points could get converted over?

    UMM how about FINALLY MA HAS DONE IT. So almost every mission I'm in I'm like half done. I'll have 3 months or less to kill like 1000000 creatrues or loose my progress??

    Silver Longtooth?
    Bronze Atrox?
    Supreme Rexexlum and Leviathan?
    Iron Argonaut V

    For me those are some of the worst losses. I cannot do all of them in 3 months. Probably not even before 2020.

    this is a huge spit in the face. This grace period is not enough time. Either give us MUCH longer or go shove this game up your @ss. You will loose many players mark my words. This is a huge insult to Planet Partners as well, their missions are already more "current" than the old ones.

    GIVE US GRACE OR CHIP ME OUT

    Looks like it's the 2012's pre-overhaul of the mission system grinding frenzy all over again

    People shuld get emails about this... im small player, hunter only and i have a about 5 big missions in the middle.

    Cant imagine big players doing hunting+mining...

    Perhaps button "finish the mission now" and taking % of progress as a reward could work?
