New Rocktropia Robot Pets - Hacked K-1, K-2, K-3 & K-4

New pets have been discovered on Rocktropia.



They have been spotted at the Steampunk mob spawn near the Tangerine shopping District (Ballistair Apartments TP is closest).

There are 4 known of so far.
The Hacked K-2 is level 17 (common) and the Hacked K-1 is level 18 (rare) so keep this in mind if you plan to tame one for yourself.
Another thing is that the K-1 will take 40ped TT of ped food, so its a very hungry little robot !

L27 Steampunk are the mobs you need to kill apparently to spawn them up, they dont seem very hard to kill at all for L27 plus the loot was very nice for a change :laugh:

Ill add another photo of the unlocks, the Hacked K-1 is Skill Gain - Pet and Taming
so nothing too exciting there unfortunately.

They dont seem Ultra rare, probably as rare as the vixens in Hell. I know at least 4 have spawned in the last 24 hours, im sure many more have also.

Anyway enjoy and happy taming ! :whip:

Edit:
K-1 is rare
K-2 is common
K-3 is common
K-4 is common

That's some advanced robotic technology here, if Akbal-Cimi toasters adopt this design we won't have a chance :)

Irony detected! :laugh:

Well quite obviously not a coincidence. I don't care if there could be any copyright problems or not, copying someone else's design instead of creating your own is a cheap and lazy way of doing things.

Besides, every step towards rubber-toy-world-for-6yr-old-kids gets -10 points from me. Yea I get it, they're prolly trying to be funny in a weird steampunk style way but the result is just stupid, IMO.

It's a Hi-Tech Sci-Fi themed game FFS! Or should I say, it was once... :duh:

Might be neither coincidence nor copying. I doubt that ND is acquainted with JJ Abrams but some secondary connections are possible and RT is known to promote cinema industry's stuff for mutual benefits.

Only the featureless rectangular slightly drooped head shape matches - but is not unique. The curvature on it however could be the only actual infringement ( yes that barely obvious element of it).

On the face of it and without access to the extended or additional variations in the filing description itself ( which may go beyond what is seen) there are not enough similarities to cause concern. A broken antenna is also quite different from a bulb - so no dice there either.

Long story short, after the Earth's exploration probe discovered Calypso and created there a robotic network ("base matrix") which purpose was to prepare the planet for colonists and build the infrastructure, it continued its journey to the next destination, the system of 2 giant planets, Akbal and Cimi. There it built a similar base matrix, but apparently went haywire in process (no doubt it was programmed by swedish coders who don't believe in testing), because later a signal from Akbal-Cimi to the Calypso's base matrix turned its robots against the first colonists.

The once Eden-like planet became an irradiated mess, filled with weird fauna and savage descendants of former humans (all those feffoids, thorifoids, mulmuns and other humanoid mutants). Survived humans eventually eliminated the local robot threat and repopulated the planet, but the hostile AI at Akbal-Cimi keeps trying to retake Calypso, sending the swarms of toasters for our amusement.

In fact, I suspect that so called Rocktropia is actually either Akbal or Cimi, because only a sick mind of the defective exploration probe could create all those lecherous robot hookers. Hundreds of years of lone wandering in space, you know. And those "rocktropians" are probably androids, trying to infiltrate our society, our government, to destroy us from within. One of them one day may even become our president... wait, oh shit...
