Cyrene:​

New Additions
- The return of the Imperium Armor
– With this return, the Augmented and Perfected versions will also be available. However it seems there were some Imperium moles getting these armors so now Zed Fontaine is personally enforcing stricter controls with players needing increased A.R.C. Badges as well as additional components and plenty of animal oil residue
- Players can locate Zed and see more information about the armor upgrade in A.R.C. HeadQuarters
- A.R.C. Hero Roy Vulker has a statue dedicated to him in this area as well and we encourage everyone to pay their respects, especially if they collected a full set of his armor

- Introducing Utility Faps: players with the Refurbished H.E.A.R.T. Rank VI can now choose one of two utility upgrades. Additionally, players can now downgrade back to Rank V to remove the heal of time component; however this change will be final.
- Players can find these two new Boffins in the Supply Depot

- With the rise of the Manuthale faction coming to the surface, they have overhauled Mer Beach into its original marsh-like ecosystem known as Rana Haven. The change to the island has caught the attention of ARC who are requesting trusted player assistance in aiding our new allies via unique daily missions
– Players with A.R.C. Badges should come to see A.R.C. Envoy Surin and venture further into the cavern found on this island to meet the other Manuthale

- The first original Cyrene music composed and mastered by CKA records, our in-house studio headed by Yui

- Zyn’Dars Hovel has been remodeled to include his new companion Zyn’Tao and his crafting station. With this remodel Zyn’Dars current pet daily mission has been split between low and mid level pets missions. While Zyn’Tao will be offering a weekly crafting mission which will reward Tamer Horns limited blueprint

People are zombified to Claypso cause of the market, hence not incentivizing any further improvements on a Planet that already has 80% of the EU population. Thats the only thing i can think of as an excuse for MA's lack luster attitude towards content on Calypso.

Also add warp pricing being annoying for normal folk, its not much, but if you travel to and from cyrene via warps 3 tiems a week that is suddenly 120 ped out the window unless you subscribe to warp services or something i dunno... yeey i know "space reeee" shoot me. We'll be rid space uber and volt drivers some day and give them better content to do.

Just curious, where are you getting 120 ped from? 10 ped is pretty standard for mothership warps nowadays, so for 3X2 warps a week, that would be 60 ped.

Though when I do take warps, I accumulate a lot more to the point I'd at least spend a week on a planet before going back to Caly, so 10 ped isn't a high percentage at that point, especially when it's only warping one way (no/little lootable stuff when I leave Caly).

Taking a warp cost of 20ped 6 times, 20 times 6 = 120 a quick exacmple of someone going to and from caly 3 times as i said, or going 6 warps wherever.

I haven't paid 10 ped in any bygone times, most standard asking is 20 or 25, 40 (grab any warp service and if you don't have a supreme well known name you get skint i guess) for a pickup from another planet. Prices vary, but its a annoying cost that feels arbitrary and uncessary imo. Be it 60 or 120 ped whichever amount, many pennies small create a dollar fast. And the average player if going by what people deposit 500 - 3500 ped pr month, 60 ped pr week even times 4 is still a fairly big amount of that. Which is what i was getting at.

Who does warps for 10 peds atm though I would love to add them and keep an eye out for when they are on caly and going somewhere, would make it at least a little less annoying to go somewhere else pocket wise :p

You know you can fly yourself to Cyrene in about 15 minutes for like 2.3 ped (probably even less) right?

You can also share warps with others, to lower the cost even more.

Cyrene and monria yeah, but the others not so much, and I think its far less than that cost wise? I fly around a lot (monria every single day) and the 10 ped fuel i stuffed in my quad has lasted a good month now xD to which i should probably check so that i dont run out again halfway somewhere like i usually do because i forget :p

That is true, but traffic at times is not high enough so one might end up waiting a while if so :p

Exactly. Kronan had been going at least as long as I’ve been around, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that 20 ped is not a normal warp price, that’s a premium VIP price.

I find this format terrifying, not because of the conclusion itself, but because of the tacit assumption that number of changes, without any analysis of whether each change is a net benefit or detriment, is a reasonable measure of which planet is "winning." I think this is a dangerous road that can incentivize really lousy development decisions.

As mentioned above Kronan does :) Granny and the crew are lovely.

We also do 10 ped warps every night, or cheaper with multipass. ( Titans of Space Normandie). Just depends whose times suit you best I guess.


Also - I was reading this thread wondering if i missed the caly update 🙃

I shouldn’t have forgotten ToS. You guys work well for those more on Europe time, while Granny’s time fits better for us North America folks. There’s pretty good coverage of available times that way that I wouldn’t really plan to use VIP warp services barring an extreme case of needing to go immediately.

the cynic in me says this is THE reason for no changes or reform on the auction system. they know that fully half the population of caly or more is there only because of its prevalence as the commerce hub and the fear of loss in space. if the auction were made universe-wide they'd most likely have to either invest in development or pay out more to planet partners.

Cyrene is doing what a planet partner should if they want success. More content, and more of what players want.
