Good to see there are fixes for the new content. There are also a few other things that should be fixed, a list I compiled yesterday:

Bugs:
- Team mates entering after the first door is unlocked are unable to see the creatures in the sampling room until the 3 waves are started;
- There is no codex for any of the mobs or bosses in the main room;
- Trade terminal is not working when trying to buy ammo;
- Contract to kill mission can only be done in A1, not in B1;
- The box to unlock the code for the [Unregistered Fiber Composite] is only in A1, not in B1;
- The debuff from survive wave sometimes stays on even after you have left the instance;
- Weight of RDI designs is ridiculous, please adjust this;
- Code sequence unlocked message even after mission completed;
- Sound is often bugged, you can no longer hear the "woman on PA";
- Sound effect for the last wave of calamusoids in the electrification version in 3rd wave is way too loud, it's like 3 times louder than any other sound in the game;
- Reset Nerve Gas terminal can be clicked multiple times, giving damage every time its clicked;
- Very laggy when initially entering the cave before Hypogeum gateway;
- Calamusoids drop some 100% useless materials like [Advanced Adaptive Fuse];
- Tezlapods in sampling room drop only shrapnel.


Nice to have:
- Terminals at entrance or in room. Storage, Auctioneer, could be inside Hypogeum Gateway;
- Or place a teleporter outside;
- Instance accessible from Global Events window.
- PLEASE shorten the survive wave, we sometimes die of BOREDOM!
Thanks

Thanks for the hitbox increase, we still need the burnshield of the space dropship boss either reduced from 100% to less percentage for motherships to do damage or changed to be projected by shielddrones that can be destroyed to bring down the shield.
Furthermore, since the wave spawn is non pvp you put gunners of privateers/motherships in competition to quads - therefor can we please have the efficiency of gun turrets displayed/provided somewhere ?
Could you also please consider introducing a space looter profession for all space mobs to keep this fair for space hunters ? Planetside hunters will have much higher return due to higher looter professions then space hunters and that can have a big impact if everyone is hunting the same mob type in a realtively condensed area with the same weaponry.

Just tested sleipnir with VTOL MMB as-35... now i cant dmg dropships at all.. missles still explode on the outside but do 0 dmg anyway i try it.. up close max range dont matter. need an entirely new primary weapon for sleipnir that does direct damage like kismet not short range aoe like vtol mmb. If anything it looks like they DECREASED the hitbox not increased.

The VTOL MMB AS-35 is pretty useless if the outside of the dropship is more than 5m(mmb dmg radius) from the hitbox

Just gonna park the damn thing till u get it figured out.. tired of pssin ammo away testing.. another 30ped poof =p

It's that and not allow space hunters to unlock ground professions or skills used planet side, like intuition... or not have captain profession related skills provide hp buffs since they dont use hp at all o_O

Stuff like that

If it was as easy and effective to hunt or skill in space, this wouldn’t be an issue.

They need to add a ‘Lock Target’ function for hunting Mobs in space. It should be the same as it is for pvp planetside.

How is it a Human planet side can lock onto a target with precision accuracy, but a highly advanced space ship with onboard computers can not?
This is so outdated and needs to be addressed.

I sure the "F" hope this is not true for the active 5% buffs!!!! If so this definitely needs to be fixed before Halloween Mayhem Event starts!!! PLEASE MindArk make sure to the best of your abilities there are no exploits usable in this event. We don't need any more drama.

Have you tried every gunners seat? Do ALL the guns on MS do same damage? On Privateer different gunners seats do different damage types.

I did a test some time ago on the privateer guns, and eco was about 3 dpp if that helps? :p

Correct. All MS guns do burn, while Privateers have 3 different damage types.
That is the issue when it comes to dps against the boss. The boss has a shield that deflects all burn damage.

There always have been bugs that could be exploited in the game. NOT "F" EXPLOITING them is an easier way of avoiding drama and wrecking the reputation.................

lock target isnt the issue for sleips. the missles explode on contact but whatever its contacting doesnt reach whatever is require to actually register damage

Yes motherships only have one turret type and yes we can test dpp pretty easily since there is no decay(at this point) only ammo consumption but what we cant test is efficiency, thats why we need mindark to provide the info to make hunting more fair.

Aren't the mobs in the space wave Robots? Logically we should use the Robot looter profession.
And the other types of space mobs are Animals/Mutants? Which should use the Animal/Mutant looter professions.

The entire Entropia Universe has hundreds (maybe even 1000) different mobs across the 6 planets, 2 Moons, an Asteroid and a Space Station. All of which fit into the 3 Looter professions.

Adding an entire new profession for 6 space mobs?
