@Jascha is at the moment in vacation and coming back at ~friday and I am driving with my motorcycle now to my family and stay there until monday. You can imagine that in that time not the full support can be given and hopefully you let @DeeExpus, @Starglade and @Apona alive!
HWS NPC Trader
I updated almost every HWS NPC Trader and also redesigned the information page about them:
I wanted to simplify things and hope it’s a lot better this way. The prices are now merged together. Some too expensive, some too cheap.
The idea of that is
a) RP costs and daily limits can catch the ball
b) The Delivery System has its price
c) RP will be even more valuable soon again
New OP rule
At the moment the PvP community are discussing heavily the Anti Grief and Offline Protection topic. We all know it is not perfect yet.
To have at least a temporary “solution” we don’t allow private bases anymore with Offline Protection! Offline Protection devices MUST be set to faction!
If we get reports or find private OP bases (the well known “OP Towers”) we will destroy them without warning.
My todo list is very long and after recent days, trying to calm down from the Alpha 7 patch a bit a lot will be coming as soon as I am back (and hopefully refreshed). SORRY you have to wait so long but THANKS for any patience you can show:
Regeneration of ALL POIs. Some cool new methods are available for us now
Adjustment of resources around the universe. Giving new player a better chance to gather rare resource while giving veterans more reasons to spread out
Finalization of my started “EGS Resource Depot Hunt” PDA mission
HWS NPC Trader Delivery System
Overall HWS Connect boost
New and a lot more donation options with quite unique mechanics
Stay tuned please. It’s really nice to see that so many players are playing again on HWS and the feedback of HWS 7 is quite good so far. We can now improve all what we have instead of reinventing stuff.
HWS Personal Assistant Program
Last but not least I want to bring up one quite cool topic and see how it envolved when I’m back.
It’s called HWS “Personal Assistant” Program and is different to the HWS Police or HWS Watcher program which is coming also when I am back.
As a “PA”
- you are counted as internal HWS tester
- you can get sneak previews of upcoming features, universes etc. before the others
- you have a vote to change features or other things
- you are basically involved in many “hidden” things behind the scence
- you have to contribute actively to the HWS Community such as helping new people
- you have to be active and work a bit like a “Community Manager”, being present on forums, Discord etc.
- you are not new to HWS. Either your playhours decide or your overall attitude towards HWS
I think we tried already a lot in the past to get the Community involved as good as possible while still giving sometimes the special “surprise” moment when releasing new stuff. I think this is and will be always important.
But more brains can do more things. And if the spirit to improve HWS is split along more people better things can happen overall.
What do you think?
Thanks again for all your support!
Stay strong. Fly safe.
Your HWS Team
