Great initiative. :yay:

Might be fun to chat or hunt with you guys, if I'm welcome.
I'm not online that much, but I really miss the team hunts from the old days of PE. Nearly no teams these days.


PS.
I have to disagree with the nostalgia though: Entropia is a waaaay better game today than it was as PE. But sadly it's much harder to get good items or make money.

The group hunt idea sounds fun, but the only thing I hear at the times I login is the sound of crickets chirping. :laugh:

I believe most gripes are about content, not technology. It is most certainly a much better program now. As for content, many new additions are awesome, some are destructive and hurtful to those grown attached to this or that thing, and some are giving the whole picture a direction certain dinosaurs tend to dislike. Making money is always easier in the heydays of something, and gets harder when crowds of me-toos pour in. Many items are better than their former counterparts, at the price of them being ephemeral (limited). That, too, goes against certain dispositions. This group is a sinkhole for such characters, but this doesn't mean we're against anyone who has something positive to say. After all, we're still here because the addiction is stronger than all the grumblings. Be welcome and make yourself at home.

-you always had someone at ring in twin before CE

-rig oil was also so much fun i used to relog to lose the agro of atrox in 2004 ( https://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/gallery/showimage.php?i=128242 )

- i remember the hit rate on avatars was very bad so you had to shoot a lot to kill someone

- my first hunting experience was on umbra/cornunda so i miss those a lot

- sweat camp north of camp phonix on diripi

Heehoo
you can join the groups here or ingame chat group anytime if you like.

Ofc, I know that many things have improved and that it is necessary to go on and add new content, enhance graphics , engine etc. but the feeling and atmosphere back then - that is what I am missing.

Yes, everything was new and shiny, and we were on the frontier of gaming in many ways.

Good times. :)

I miss the the old times when looting 5000 ammo was amazing :D

I still get really excited when i see so much ammo in the loot window and then remember it is worth 100 times less now lol

I still have no idea why this was changed... What type of gun uses 900 ammo a shot :rolleyes:

If I understand your question correctly, ammo change occured around the time 0.001 Pec items could be looted (Blazar and Nova) for the first time.

Before that, the smallest item that could be looted was 1 Pec (eg 1 animal oil residue).

There have been compensations, all ammo is weightless now, and the green ammo can be used by all weapon types - with a recent VU I think you can go mining with it (not tried it personally)

The community was a lot more cohesive and more laid back. I find it hard to believe something like the full moon parties could be organised now or be as much fun.

4 or 5 hours of just dancing about in TI castle or at the beach huts, playing name that tune while hanging out in the jacuzzi and I still think those were the best times I've had in EU, if there wasn't a mission involved some wouldn't even acknowledge something like that now ;)

The same it happens to all or both (to be more accurate) pioneer virtual worlds (Second Life is the other one for me).
I remember 2006-2007, parties around the fire or dancing all night with good friends who met each other inWorld and realy made bonds among us due those wonderfull days.
It was the feeling of the new unexplored world, the pioneers of virtual reality.
Now the younger people doesn't feel like this anymore.
10 years in technology are centuries behind.
Also RL changed alot, isn't?

It's unfortunate we don't have hardly any members who are online during typical gaming hours, North American time (Mountain Standard/Eastern/Pacific time). Except for San, I'm usually the only cricket chirping when I login. :)

Haven't got word of any obstacles, so I assume today's Oldie hunt is back to its originally agreed schedule at 17:00 EUT. Looking forward to meeting everybody! :)

Ah the good old days... back when entropia had that extra excitement and desire to play..

Not sure what it is, the game just doesn't seem anything like it used to.

Interesting society idea, may need to pop back on and have another crack haha

Heya all

I Joined January 8th 2006, so more than 10 years ago. wow, cannot really imagine.
Played a lot, played less, again a lot. Now from time to time to meet old mates ingame.
Won not a fortune, but sure lost one :)
I am without a soc since some time. I did not find something suitable which I may call "home" in our virtual universe.

OldTimers look like it could be something. Do you mind if I apply?

cheerio

Welcome all, of course we don't mind!! :yay:

The good news for Oldtimers: In Entropia, life is reversed! You're never too old to rock'n'roll, and never too young to die :laugh:
