before I to vacation from tomorrow until Sunday I want to give you an update / teaser about HWS!
(for all requests etc. please contact @Jascha)
A very very old and long requested wish from the Community finally come true with the big help of @Schleicher! Thank you so much!
He has set not only all Doors to public so you can enter the Garage ships and check them out but also provided Statistic Screenshots for all ships!
- Enter the “HWS Showroom” Stargate from either EGS HQ or Garage HQ on ECC
- You can freely walk into each ship and see what they offer before buying them in ECC Garage HQ
- Additionally you can also check out the HWS Penthouses nearby to see if you like them (read below more about the Penthouse Donation)
- The Statistic Screenshots per ship are located HERE
- The HWS Showroom will be additionally the place where we show new Garage ships in advance before they will be available for sale, so you can give feedback on them (request a test flight) or get teasered before
The next bigger HWS Garage update will be implementing the “Contract” versions again for new player to enjoy for less credits. Stay tuned for that!
The HWS Showroom is available after the 5PM restart today!
Ninja Mission Teaser
The new Penthouse (Japanese Residence) you see below is available in 2 versions so to speak.
One version is available as a Penthouse but another is one of the biggest and hardest HWS Mission you can soon play! It will be available in the EGS Flying City via the Stargate.
Your goal as a Ninja will be to NOT cause any alerts to the Guards, steal a hot air balloon and fly with that up in a cloud to find a hidden treasure there.
The difficulty depends if you follow the true path of a Ninja and claim then a reward for Emperors.
The HWS Ninja Mission will be available to play after I’m back from Vacation
With the great help and Skill of @Jascha we improved the Tax system further more to close one missing gap: fairness.
It (could) happened that after someone built a Base since Day 1 on Eden and after 200+ Cores got reached this poor guy got Taxed because others didn’t care about the warnings. So either he moved away with sadness or got taxed not really fair.
That is the reason why we enhanced the system to ONLY tax those players who caused the 200+ Core breach.
Everyone who was on the planet already before the 200+ limit break through don’t get taxed.
This should prevent unfair play - intentionally or unintentionally ( which can always prevented by checking the Core count with fa:scan + HWS Connect)
Same as the Ninja Mission, @Ju built this outstanding Japanese Residence for HWS. It will be available as Penthouse to rent similar to the other two Penthouse versions you can check in the coming HWS Showroom.
However, because I know some player complained or worse about the pay wall for Penthouses we will implement some Penthouses on some no-tax planets as option to buy with ingame credits.
By no means do Penthouses give you any advantage over others, no matter what the haters and liars telling you. But I agree that such awesome buildings should be available for everyone who appreciate the work we do for you - with a donation or ingame credits!
A more in depth change to some Donation options will come as soon as we start the Patreon idea.
I know very well that HWS has here and there the image of a “Pay to Win” server. Especially because other Server owners spreading this lie over and over again to their playerbase.
They ignoring the facts and feeling better by doing so. So be it.
But because especially you should feel comfortable on HWS we will implement couple of ways how your ingame progress can give you also the Donation options to unlock.
For example unlocking 1 Faction Planet with ingame credits + RP instead of donating.
That will be the last step to crush any Pay to Win hater out there - just in case they care about it, what I doubt.
Anyways, more about Donations, Patreon and the financial aspect of HWS will be coming later.
For now I hope you will enjoy the HWS Showroom, got teasered and don’t kill @Jascha too much with requests while I’m away
P.S.: To calm down the burning torches I got already about “stop adding shit and fix lag and PvE places”, I can only say that we work hard with Eleon together for a solution regarding lag / disconnects and regarding PvE places: there is a lot of room left still and maybe you start spreading out equally already by start using fa:scan
