    Post Next Island Paradise Zone Now Open for testing along with Club Neverdie Land Area and Theme Park

    Hello community welcome to this exciting new planet in the Entropia Universe. I am a sort of a community leader for Next Island and greeting to all newcomers to Next Island and hope to help most of you adapt to this wonderful new environment.

    Neverdie Studios decided to open the East Island which is owned by Jon "Neverdie" Jacobs 2 days before public release of Next Island, This island is owned by Neverdie Studios and looks like a gigantic theme park. Eruption Area is covered by Fire Drakes, There is a massive racetrack or roller coaster in the Champions Area , Storm Drakes, Fire Drake, Ice Drakes , Skeletons and various other mobs all occupy the Club Neverdie or Neverdie "Theme Park" with Respects to his former GF Island Girl has been installed as the Healer and known as the Revive Terminal there.

    edit : Due to a synch issue with a few mainland servers the mobs are not spawning - this is the reason why most of the mainland on next island is empty, Neverdie and Enzo are now aware of the situation - hopefully it gets fixed soon

    The Paradise Zone on the mainland is now open for testing The New Player Area consists of Petite Mobs for the new players , as well as monkeys and boars and other exciting little critters, The Mainland Area is open for testing now (Updated : Mobs are suppose to be present on the mainland servers now due to an server issue) . Please note that the mainland has various precious minerals and enmatters (some rare minerals have been found already) it is a great time to get mining on the mainland early, before opening of the mainland.

    Bugs : Currently there are few bugs i have noticed however the Enchanted Waterfall Zone in the north of the mainland has water above the road - it maybe a bug or is a feature purposely who knows - i think its a bug. The revive terminal on the mainland is different like a totem or some sort, Noticed also some floating torches which is definitely a bug.

    There are Shacks with TTs , Repair (both monkeys) and Crafting, Storage and Friends (Soc) Terminals all over the mainland and TPs in all the different Zones, Next Island mobs will be organised into habitats in particular zones, the noob (or New Player) mobs are now spawning in the Paradise Area SE and some to the South of the mainland, Each Zone has a Teleporter, Shack and a Totem Revive. But you have to explore these zones and find the TPs on the mainland they are not given out like on Neverdies "Theme Park" Island. Miners will be given ample areas to mine minerals and enmatters.

    Servers : Next Island Mainland is broken up into 4 Servers and 1 Additional Server for Club Neverdie or Neverdie " Theme " Park, as more islands open in the future they will all be on separate servers.

    I hope this enlightens you on the current situation on Next Island and an explanation of whats happening, and looking forward to the coming months or days.. Thank You

    You would think this would have been mentioned in the releasenotes ...

    However, I feel a lot more happy with this information. NEVERDIE may have taken some crap from various people (including me) today, that he may, or may not, deserve.

    I shall keep my eyes open insted of wideshut when it comes to Next Island.

    Thank you again for posting this information. Next Island did not announce a public launch today, so yes, appropriate info should have been included in the MindArk release notes so that so many misunderstandings could have been avoided. Really a shame this couple of days of testing fun opportunity has been so blasted by some who didn't even know clearly what was going on, or care for that matter it seems, since ND's owning a land area is just not acceptable to them no matter what and a fight is all that really matters.

    Best of luck with Next Island, and thank you guys for joining our 'universe', it isn't always this vicious.

    What are you talking about? This is totally the fault of MA or whoever it is the runs Entropia Universe these days.

    Next Island have been on everyone's head the last few weeks, and with this kind of flop, people have the right to be angry. This should have been mentioned in the releasenotes; that way we would have avoided all this.

    Neverdie "Theme Park" with Respects to his former wife Island Girl
    Unless I'm very much mistaken, (Which I admit is not impossible) Island Girl and NeverDie were never married.

    I agree with you, I think you misunderstood me perhaps. I was saying that the only announcement that Next Island was open today came in the release notes from MA, not from Next Island, and thus more details should have been in those release notes. A bit of a communication breakdown between MA and NI? Agis has now posted on behalf of NI, a bit late but at least it's something.

    I never traveled to NI, but those who did and traveled back should be compensated by MA.

    Perhaps publishing information regarding this staged implementation BEFORE turning on the servers would have helped to limit expectations as to what would be discovered in this brave new world as travellers stepped off the teleporter?

    If it's not a total screwup, it's certainly a NI PR fail.

    Good luck with your planet.

    They may have people in "marketing" working for them but do they have anyone who actually plays the game working for them is the better question...
