MindArk and the Planet Partners strive to ensure a smooth and problem-free Version Update. Nevertheless, even after extensive testing some issues may arise after release. Such issues are often addressed via mini-patches directly after a release and in subsequent patches. If you feel that the possibility of encountering minor issues or bugs directly after a Version Update affects your gameplay to an extent that Entropia Universe is not enjoyable, please wait until the mini-patches have been released and any last minute issues have been resolved.

Looking forward to test this :D

Why is this 180m range in place ? There is weapons that can shoot over 240ish metres.

I am still waiting for my pizza for testing 16.0.0 and 16.0.1 and you guys deliver 16.0.2 already?

Keep an eye on "no looters" bug. It's not very damaging but very frustrating as we had a deal to get rid of "no looters" in Loot 2.0.

If this works as intended and requested by ppl in this forum, I want David Simmonds salary to be reduced by 90% and those assets should be moved to Dennis and other bug fixers. "Board of directors" knows shit about this game and 99% of their ideas are failure.

Vox populi, vox Dei. Listen to our feedback, communicate, deliver promises and it will be fine.

[*]Reduced camera rotation speed for lock target.
I wish you guys could keep some of the new additions in the camera update as options because some of these were really nice and I personally liked very much the speed of the camera during hunts.

Later Edit:current speed is fine and also it can be adjusted. Perfect!

Any chance we could get protection info on plates' tooltip?
[*]Looting now has a higher priority for Interact.
Please also add priority to taming attempts - mobs loose focus when ready for taming (will have to check, might be fixed too...)

2 minutes to pop in from works and found -

Honestly, some improvement.

Camera option can change distances of scroll out etc and alignments.

•Far Vertical Offset
•Near Vertical Offset
•Maximum Distance
•Locked Horizontal Speed
•Locked Vertical Speed
•Mouse Sensitivity
•Distance Sensitivity

All there and appear to work.

But a very Long way short of what was expected / hoped for by myself as Still cannot interact with half the stuff in my estate to remove / pick up as still missing.

may the bugfest begin...

:popcorn:

Yes! This is everything asked for including the cream and the cherry on top...

One question, the looting action priority works only in aim mode, not in cursor mode. Is this intended? I am usually more often in cursor mode to be ready to pick up fruits or perform a pet action.

And possibly a bug, not sure if this is the way to always reproduce it but how it occurred for me just now: After hunting a bit I entered a VTOL to fly to another spawn, and upon landing and equipping my weapon again and targeting the first mob it would not shoot. Tried unequipping, re-targeting, nothing worked. Only after relogging it worked again.

can we please bring back when selecting auto run it relaxes weapon? All other games do this and before this camera update it did it. Annoying to have to press yet another key...
Thanks.

I thought it doesn't work as I use cursor mode too. But in aim mode it works as expected (most of the time) :yay: There are still cases when I attack new mob instead of looting dead one in dense spawn - but way less annoying than before.

This is much better :) I'd still like to see some more zoom on the 'maximum distance' though.

Tooltip info does now include attachments which is good.
But the damage per second calculation does still not include amps,crit modifiers,enhancers and therefor is no accurate comparison.
Should efficiency maybe be part of the comparison ?


Vain arm guard item graphics used to kill entropia application when viewed, now the graphic in inventory is removed, i guess this is a fix-in-progress ?

Trade interaction since switch to new camera system seems to require both participants to be within interaction range, this causes passengers who accept a summon to a spaceship often to fail on trade until both participants to the trade have moved around and both clients involved come to the conclusion that interaction range is sufficient.
It is not sufficient if interaction range is valid just for the side starting the trade the other party tradet with needs to also have the info that interaction range is sufficent in the new system.
Maybe sync/update position info between avatars as part of a trade initiation and automove the initiating party in trade distance should the update drop them out of it. (Let their avatar walk up to the avatar in updated position till range is sufficient for both)
