  1. I like that, If you enter a PvP zone you have to "fee up front" before you enter. To cover my eventual death(s), say anywhere from non-refundable 500,000 to 2 million credits (Player level dependent), with a per incapacitate/Death cost of $100,000 to $500,000 .

    Psionics is a broad category of alleged psychic abilities that includes telepathy, psychokinesis, pyrokinesis, and others.[1][not in citation given] The term comes from psi ('psyche') and the -onics from electronics (machine).[1][2]Parapsychology is a pseudoscience that began around 1889 and aims to study psionics and other supernatural claims.[3][page needed] There is no scientific evidence that psionic abilities exist.[4]

    Psionic abilities appear frequently in science fiction and provide characters with supernatural abilities.[5]John W. Campbell, an editor of a science fiction magazine, became excited about fringe science,[6] and went on to define psionics as "engineering applied to the mind".[7] His encouragement of psionics led author Murray Leinster and others to write stories such as The Psionic Mousetrap.[6]

  4. Wookie. His intelligence gives him the upper hand.
  5. Oh man I hate to see someone leave out of frustration.

    It really pains me that a guild couldn't do more for a low level toon.

     

    There are a few, very few, that are trying to NOT multi-box, and want to group with you.

    But you have to make it known ask "LFG JD L99, Currently in Grissom".

    While in group If you have trouble typing or communication I'll get on the EMU Team speak with you.

     

    We'll "Make It So" we'll make it fun. Please forget about how the game use to be.

    Look at it like a game that you never played before, totally new.

    There are so many things that are working than ever before. And some new challenges.

    Don't give up! Adapt.  I and my guild are patiently leveling our toons and gathering information on how to defeat the new aggression system. And you know what ? its completely different from what was done in the past. Lets say the NPC have gotten smarter over night !

    It is human nature to frown on change and some just CAN'T DO IT.

     

    I really really do hate to see someone leave a game out of frustration and because there is no one to play with.

    That's not right and has to change. I would hate to be in a guild that didn't feel the need or the reason to help and educate our future warriors, Builders and Healers.

  6. True. If there were loot tables and equipped item damage. Stage one PvP First set of code: Shoot player Second set of code: Debuff player. (Skills and item debuff) We could have a lot of fun with just this above. Below is where the largest amount of code would come. Stage two PvP. Third set of code: Loot player. Server would have to search for the dead players race, profession, items in cargo hold, and available credits -%lootcredits If a player has nothing in their hold a default loot drop table for common and semi-rare (MAYBE !) items. Stage three PvP: equipped Item % damage. Server would have to look at dead players items and calculate damage percentage based on damage received and type. All of this including the PvE code ?? But hey, what do I know.
  7. Turning on PvP IIRC, wouldn't, couldn't or shouldn't be hard, But I honestly don't know. Guide lines for the PvP have to be set first, this includes: Damage, reward, loss and gains, and/or new sector(s) or server. Some time ago the DEVs did a Vrix raid in the Jupiter sector, where the DEVs were flying Vrix ship(s). This was in Stress Test #1 of 3. Its been so long ago that I don't remember if my equipment sustained % damage. But I do know there were casualties. The issue with PvPvE is: 1) The current game environment, balance and code has never been programed for sector (ONLY) PvP. PvP server wide IS OUT OF THE QUESTION. That is one thing the entire EMU community agrees on. 2) A lot of the Emulator community can not stand the possibility of a EVE like scenario, with childish bolstering and head hunting. (I have painted a large target on my ship.) 3) A majority of the EMU community want to see the original Earth and Beyond content restored to it's former glory, before ANY PvP content is worked on or implemented. 4) Real life cost. Having a new server for PvP players for only half of the player base doesn't, in some eyes, this doesn't make economical sense. I don't know if you played Earth and Beyond in EA live Novaflare. The Arena, when there was a battle ready to start there was IIRC a count down, just before the challengers 1 on 1 or group challenges entered the arena. Again, I don't know how Westwood or Electronic Arts had the Arena set up, meaning, was the Arena on a different server or on a separate partition or separate drive on the same PvE server. There are probably 2-3 DEVs that could answer that question more accurately than I. I have just answered what the EMU community has said. I have on paper what and how the "Joint Maneuvers" or "War Games" or PvP would start, (Game content mission chain). The Orion sector I have here in this thread will always be the preferred (By me and some others) PvPvE battle ground. Small enough to get around, large enough to get lost and not seen and a Race starting sector safe zones for leveling and practice. (Should a PvP character be born in PvP).
  8. I was just thinking about PvP again, every time that the constellation of Orion comes to view in the winter sky. To add to your Jenquai's doing Pvp a cartoon.
  9. You should of heard what they said when I suggested renaming Uranus to Urectum. j/k.

  11. I'm afraid I have to disagree with you. Ask just about anyone, I am the Jenquai. Ask yourself, What roll will my character play today? Then equip your Jenquai accordingly. DON'T equip your Jenquai for any combination of trade, mining, support, energy and combat. You heard the saying "Go big or go home". deck out your Jenquai fully for the task at hand. The Jenquai Explorer has the biggest array of equip-able devices in the game. No other mining class has the survive-ability of the Explorer in an hostile environment, while mining. With the addition of the additional wormholes, choosing a place to mine and fight with a "Improved Wormhole" device, make playing a JE much more fun. Make sure you have a Coma device installed if your in a combat scenario, it should (soontm) negate the "See Cloak" of some mobs. The Jenquai Seeker, IMO is one of the best healers in terms of survive-ability. Add some the Jenquai only, Trader "only" equipment like the Chimaera's AND the Manticore's you have a very versatile Character. The Jenquai Seeker can heal-cloak-heal-cloak works the same way as the way Fire-cloak-fire-cloak in that it wipes aggro just long enough for your Warrior or the main group healer to grab back the mobs aggression. The Jenquai Defender has the highest BURST DPS in the game. The Jenquai Defender has nearly an infinite amount of energy while in combat. A Jenquai Defender can steal (If need be) the Aggession from ANY character class in the game. The Defender can supply EVERY players character in group with energy simultaneously within a 5k range of the Defenders target. The Defender uses the Energy Drain-Cloak like they would Fire-cloak. I'm going to provide you two links for your next Jenquai that your working on (Jenquai Defender). The second link will help you equip your character for the task at hand. Defenders Guide This next link you have to log on to the site with the same information you use to enter the forums. https://www.net-7.org Click on the character you want to equip or test and then click on the weapon, engine, reactor, device or shield then replace the item with something from your wish list. You'll have to play around with the app until you get use to it's use. This is fun in itself.
  12. Until then.
  13. Filled with sorrow and dismay to loose such a creative and satirical mind, he will be missed. My sincere heart felt condolences to the DEV team, families and players that knew him well. We all knew someone that has passes while working on or playing the EMU. I agree with an in-game memorial or structure (Mausoleum space landing base). "I don't want you to worry, Because life up here is great. I really miss you guys, But I know you'll be just fine. You know I can see you right, So please stop shedding tears. You guys, I'm perfectly fine,So conquer all your fears. I'll be watching your every move. Relax! I won't spill your beans. But stop all those naughty things you do, Because you know there's nothing I can’t see. I need you to come here to meet me, But not if you misbehave, Hey guys I know you miss me. It's really hard not to. But please, please stop grieving, Because you're making me sad too. You guys have been a great family, And I am truly blessed."
