    Zym Village is PvP very soon out of the teleport area, that seems the worse one to spawn the bug too it seems. One thing I wish they'd add all over is an audible warning when you are approaching PvP not just once you entered it. Sometimes you are busy watching mobs or mining and watching maps and don't see the Icon turn yellow then red and oh sh$$% I need to get out of here! Hearing a "Warning, you are approaching a PvP area" would be a nice touch. Possibly a 'click' to turn it off would make it ideal too.

    Just my two PEC's

    Release postponed.

    The release scheduled for tomorrow, tuesday October 14, have been postponed due to issues with the backend distribution.
    (It means that the release is delayed because it took longer than expected to "prepare" the content for deployment to the live servers).
    We are working hard on resolving these issues and will get back to you with a new release date as soon as everything is in place.

    Regards
    /The MindArk development team.

    looks like it may still be this week. hoping :)

    hmmm No disrespect to Cyrene at all. I realize this is out of their hands.

    VU puns or jokes....

    Why did the VU stay in a warm comfortable cage?

    It didn't want to be released.



    What is the difference between a new Michael Jackson song and an MA VU?

    The Michael Jackson song will be released before Christmas.


    Game on.

    Hey non,

    The system that is needed for that mission to be active is not ready for this VU. I'm currently looking at alternatives to expedite this mission.

    Cheers,

    I've been guessing here but need to hear from you and that is are any of your requested systems going to be released with this next update? How is the story line system coming along if you know?

    Hey guys,

    None of the new systems will be introduced in the next (October 2014 VU).

    Are you referring to the faction system? That system ended up being designed with available systems. I hope this answers your question.

    We're also working with MindArk to improve some mob hit boxes for the Mini Patch.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    says upcomimg partner releases but might as well mention it here. just after you guys did a nice job with the balancing of loot ma is going to change the whole system up again... could be nice but also could wreck havoc on cyrene.

    you are probably aware of it but i tend to be a bit pessimistic at times and i could see this really being a pain for a still developing economy.

    hope the vu goes smooth on your end and ours. and looking forward to the cyrene notes as soon as servers go down :)

    So from what it sounds like you will be going ahead with the hard launch manually monitoring the activity? Which ever way you go, it's great to see the planet going forward and I will be happy to visit it this coming week.

    And I hope you reset the mobs back to the original stats. As another one pointed out, kind of funny that you have puny mobs that are almost the same stats as an Calypso Atrax :p

    Hey OZtwo,

    I understand now, you mean the Dynamic Upgrade System for the areas, yes, we will be manually monitoring that through various means =) After the Mini Patch we'll start to show off Dynamic Upgrade Map.

    We do have quite a few mobs that are relatively low level for newer players to hunt =) I don't have the full stats for an Atrox Hatchling off hand but I can say for sure that many our Puny and Weak maturities at least have less HP.

    Puny Pleak - 10 HP
    Puny Crystal Pede, Puny Tree Dragon - 30 HP
    Weak Paneleon - 80 HP
    Weak Dire Weed, Weak Tree Dragon, Weak Scout Bot, Weak Sea Wraith - 100 HP
    Atrox Hatchling - 140 HP

    That being said we're always looking as ways to make Planet Cyrene more balanced and fun. Not to mention that mobs can and will change in future VUs.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    Wow, I am liking this immensely. Please Please Please Please allow the MECHs to be UL and useable anywhere! The HUB had great guns, but you could only use them in the HUB.
    I look forward to the Shops and Apartments.

    So, what's going on here? When can we expect to start seeing stats on the progress of the areas being opened? What is planned for this VU? Yah yah, the new VU but we all know how those tend to work out. Just seems that everyone here of any official status seems to be 404 lately.

    Is Cyrene still on target for it's 'official' rollout before the year ends? Just seems to me that something as huge as making a planet 'officially' open would have a bit more fanfare and advertisement or something.

    Whats the status of shops? You need money to make things happen? Shops will make that happen, both in the initial sale to individuals and residuals from them.
