My question is "will you listen to what your community is telling you?"

Seems to me from what I have seen in this post is that the community living on your planet wants bugs fixxed, previous systems brought back and to have this planet developed to it's potential before another planet is developed. Will you listen to them ??

I am thrilled that SEE Virtual Worlds (SEE VW) have gained the rights to Planet Calypso. First Planet Company has been rebranded as SEE Digital Studios and is now the development leg of SEE WV. SEE Digital Studios will be in charge of maintaining and developing Planet Calypso, as well as the development of Planet Michael.

As Managing Director for SEE Digital Studios,
So what's your favorite Michael Jackson song?

Aside from Planet Michael can we expect to see:

Planet Twilight?

Planet Britney?

Lady Gaga Land?

I'm going to stop now. But the ridiculousness of this all is just too much. A sci-fi game being run by the same team that is doing Planet Michael. Ugh.

1. Will there be any develop of the oceans within the next 2 years?
I.E. EU Oceans & Fishing

2. Will there ever be the development of an official secondary economy that is not completely reliant on Ped? Perhaps for storyline purposes or for future socializing actions. I.E. Drinks,Food, Drugs tied to Sweating or whatever minimal wage job is on a planet.

3. I'm with several other forum posters in the need for a road map. For a very good example of Development updates that would do very well to satisfy the user base can be found here because dwarf fortress has always done an awesome job of providing a road map.

4. Any chance of that Planet Michael will have a name change? It understandable that the planet is inspired by Michael Jackson but... it almost has the same ring as Club NEVERDIE... No realistic storyline can be wrought from such names.. well, unless of course Michael Jackson of the future decided to purchase a planet and name it after himself...

When will SEE have a comment about Calypso and what their plans are to continue the story line and development of 'our' planet? (I say our because I didn't want to say mine, although I will always reside on Calypso!!)
Thanks! :]
good question....

I'm a bit leery that the purchase was more for the development team than the game we like...

I hope that we're not just gonna be a beta test for bigger and better things..

This is called abouse of a system.
Freedom of speech should be linked to some sort of rules of engagement and responsibilty....otherwise it can bring chaos. and or lose its value
I hope this deluge of questions is temporary!:scratch2:
I'd just simply say...before asking anymore questions....please think about the resources FPC has, and at least initially to stick with the most burning issues in your mind.

I would like to invite you all to post your questions in the official Q&A thread that has been set up. The thread will be open for two days, after which we will compile the questions and publish information as quickly as possible.

Rules of engagement and its temporary status is already stated.. perhaps you should have read the original post.

Sorry, my mistake :(

.......and you are right....I didn't read the other thread .....

However, I do think a lot of questions are really not that important IMHO to spend time on!

After a week of having this thread open and having all people post all question, one person can HONESTLY answer all of those question in less than 8 hours. One day of work. We are the customers and we deserve that once in a while. They should not select whatever they feel like answering, but answer ALL questions. No matter how stupid or idiotic they may seem or may be.

No one said "do that by that time". But answering??? too much time to spend to satisfy your client base?

In reality they will select few questions and they will spend maximum 20 minutes answering that. So where did that come from? They are supposed to have a person that has that for a job. To keep public relations or communicate with the client base.

For you the thread may seem too long. Some questions may seem unimportant for you. But you are not payed by anyone to read. So just skip and ask if is anything you need to know.

#1: Why do we need a Q&A Thread when you have an official forum that is full of questions
#2: I'm assuming MA got the 6million for the purchase of FPC, Can you suggest ways that we can get them to spend some of that money on a COMMUNITY INTERACTION SPECIALIST so we can get answers to real questions that we have.
#3: With new Staff can we get weekly updates about what is happening both IN GAME and DEVELOPMENT STATUS?
#4: Player Retention... Word of mouth is the best advertisement, and it is free, How do you plan on making me suggestion this "game" to my friends instead of telling them to not waste their time/money.
#5: Why do we (the players) get our news about Entropia Universe from 3rd party sites instead of Official EU related Sites?
#6: What will Change about these forums with this take over?
#7: What percentage of these questions will you reply with "Only Mindark knows the answer to that"

That is all for now. I'll think of more when I'm at work tomorrow.

just a couple of questions:

1. Will there be any answers to all these questions?
2. Does this mean that planet MJ wasn't a joke after all?

1: What will be done to the Planet Calypso economy to ensure better return rates?
2: What is Calypsos survival plan for the large amount of exiting new planets coming out?
3: What will be done to the current sweat crisis as there is only one use for ME on this planet and that is Teleport Chips?
4: Will PA be remade to be Trader friendly again as in the old days?
5: What happened to the so called steps you took to remove the "creature did not cary any loot" ?
6: The new MJ planet said something about caring for animals, How hapy will MJ fans bee having to wipp mobs to tame them, or will there be an alterative way?
7: When will we be able to sit down and lay down again?
8: Where is our hover bikes ? (as far as I know the only vehicle FPC has made sofar is the Pitbull)

When is the taming system coming back?

Hello there Marco,

Congratulations on your new job!

I just have a few questions, first of all: when is the taming system coming back?

Before you answer that, I have another: why should we believe it this time?

Taming and Mindforce is for 2010. As to no performance optimizations, I have to disagree. Several big steps has been taken during the fall for increasing performance, especially for lower settings, and even more optimizations will come next year.
Taming will come during 2010. It is one of those systems that probably isn't just converted, but rather evolved, when it is released.
And... a bit less important, but still I wonder: why are you ignoring this thread for more than a year now? Don't give me that Mindark had to do that, they promised, but didn't deliver... :dunno:

You made those posts. You implied that it would come in 2010. I trusted your words. I counted down the days. Every day. I can't help it. It just makes me angry and sad. What can I do? I'm just waiting... and waiting... and waiting.

When Chellie and I found out about this wonderful universe in June 2006, I knew I would be playing this for a long time. When we made a visit to you guys in Gothenburg in August 2008, I knew for sure I would be playing this for many, many years to come. I just love it! But why, why don't you keep your promises?

Think again before you answer the first question. If you don't know or can't influence it anymore: tell us! At least it will be an honest answer.

Don't get me wrong. I love this universe, but I just really miss my main profession.

RobVee :whip:

For this to be a successfull year for calypso all the missing system needs to come back, otherwise it will be an epic fail.

Edit:
Got more questions.

  • When will Umbranoids, Calamusoids and Kerbys be back?
  • Why did you cut off Borum Males private parts? :eek:
  • Will beacon still be lootable throu mining?
  • Will a mod fap ever drop again? :confused:
  • Will we ever see x2 skill bonus again?
  • What will the next Mayhem armor part be?
  • Do you think 1k Nova is a good reward for 5000 killed Araneatroxs?
  • Will the inactive societys holding the top biggest soc ever be disband?
  • What is Force Chat?
  • What about the LAs, DNAs and item held hostage at banned avatars?
  • Where did the loot go?
  • Will The Egg ever hatch?
  • Will ask again, where is my missing stamina points? :scratch2:
Thats all for this edit, might do another one later :laugh:

does a raised budget also means raised costs to play?
i think we reached the maximum consumption, which is acceptable some time ago :mad:

Two questions:

1. Where's the loot gone and why does the game cost 5 times as much to play these days?

2. How long before this latest spurt of interest in the playerbase wanes and it's back to normal wall of silence and no communication from anyone other than Hanne?

Sounds a bit over critical but both are pretty essential for player retention at all levels.

Well as others posted before, what concerns me most is why are lootswings that high, so you need to keep 4 digit amounts of peds on it even for low level activities ?
When is MA planning to lower the swings ?

Hmm I would think that the raised budget wouldn't really mean a raised cost of play as they will also have more planets to go with it, and it is MindArk deciding the loot balance :dunno: so I guess we will see...

Are you seriously actually going to be making a planet about Michael Jackson?!?!
YES THEY ARE they even have a facebook page and a website for it... :eyecrazy:



And then, on to the Questions:
- Is MindForce going to be Calypso-exclusive or are we going to SEE that on other planets as well? Like... Moonwalk Chip II (L)? :laugh:

Nice to see SDS is making an effort to communicate with us,
I hope to see this much more in the future. ;)

Now that Planet Calypso is run by an independent company, at least that’s how I understand it is now.

Is Mindark still allowed to make changes to the loot and/or skill system, and introduce their own new items,
like most vehicles, without the permission of SDS ?


Next question I have is,

Will unique rare BP's be allowed to leave their planet of origin ?

First off, congrats!

Questions?

1. Is the melee profession going to get a make over?
2. Are you going to introduce melee amps?

3. This is a monumental occasion, quite a big deal. Will we be seeing a TGA (Third Golden Age) to celebrate this major event???

Will SEE finally treat us as a "CUSTOMER BASE" as we deserve or just a "PLAYER BASE" as we've see so far?
