  1. Ahhhh   Just give my PP combat trance, negotiate to lvl7, An extra gun, but leave the 5th devslot, lvl 9 engines and lvl 7 HDC..   i means its fair in my book ?  :P Seriously tho i have all respect for the trxiy part of rebalancing the game. And i never said i had a solution, just some thoughts. It would be cool if others care to post here if you have your own ideas. I think it needs to be held into the light so at some point we can really make it happen.  It's a good deal for everyone with a more fair game. ^_^   Johnsilver :ph34r:
  2. Hej everyone. I just wanna point this out without pointing any fingers or so. All my problems and what is said to be ISP related issues started after the last patsh that included the "proxy Fix". Game hasent really run smoothly 1 day after that.  I tried every and all diffrent launcher setting ike prototype on/off..  deleted all th6 and so on. I can't land on planets without having to relog. I can't gate propperly and lag goes bananas ever so often.  so... Does this have nothing do with the current problems?  I mean it strikes me as very odd coinsidence that the proxy goes bork exactly the same time as the ISP starts to have more trouble then ever. I hope your right ofc and its all on ISP's end.  And ofc i respect that non be happier then the staff if theres was no issues at all so focus could be all on content. Whatever the cause i wish you best of luck in solving it :)   Johnsilver :ph34r:
  3. Well i have seen an utterly cool looking effect on a pretty low lvl drone in BBW. They shoot at you it first looks like a stream of grey smoke.. but then it starts to like glow and the hole effect is like shooting comets. I wished many times i could have guns looking like that when i fire em..  so just a though..   make thoes little drones pew pew  pew and give there uber cool fire effect to the Omega :)   Johnsilver
  4. Well if you really need to gag someone in your own guild maby its time to send him / her packing. I can understand this feature in like wow or other large guild games. But adding thoes types of guild commands will probably just lead to even more drama Like   [New_playes] Kicked:  Hey guys why did you gag me????m   are you insane??????   oh everyone.. dont join this guild..  there all morons bla bla bla...   Johnsilver
  5. That pretty much explains exactly how it is..  and what i was asking for is a change. We have 9 classes to balance now and this way is still based on the old 6 core classes. It doesent matter how things use to be as the hole game dynamics are now diffrent and we need to start thinking diffrent. Some skills are primaraly based on proffesion, and other skills on race.  Negotiate should be the same for all traders..  its a trader skill more then a perk of terrans.  Yes Progens limitations are speed, i did say so in post.  But we have 3 miners now.. and the PS is left in the dirt.  Why not give him nav to at least lvl5?  Hardly unfair to the other 2 miners.  This is ofc just a few skills and the real problem lies in overall shift of balance after the 3 new classes was introduced. So again all im asking for is a good debate on how we can make the game dynamics fair based on 9 classes.  Its all over the place in some areas right now.   Johnsilver.
  6.     Ahh its solved now..  I pop up some old screenshots in paint..   right before i plan to buff i open the picture and and look at the Chimaer'a.. Close my eyes as i alt+tab.. and press the shortcut.  So its all good now ;) P.S The song works really well for vendor shopping..  maby you can add it to station mix files :)
  7. OMG..  my basilisk and chimarea looks like a lollipop..    ehwww  12 years of seeeing the same icon for thoes items is gonna be hard to break and adapt to. ok ok ..  i get  the color theme and i 100% agree on all chages to avoid good gear beeing misstaken for crap loot.   Just try to keep your heads cool tho guys.  I open up a vendor and all ammo is in damagetype color its gonna look like the rainbow invited my little ponys to a party. Theres a line between of good use..  and change just for change sake. Me i dont like the colors much but mostly couse they dont "feel" enb to me. So if you add colors couldent you at least stick with the original model icon as a base ?   It may be a personal thing is all..  but i like to see the stuff from original game couse thats part of what keeps me nostalgic. From now on its gonna feel like..  ok lollipop debuff time..  And not at all like the Chimaera.   So i guess im just trying to say..   Don't change things if they don't need changing.  Other then that am all for it.   Johnsilver
  8. It would be awesome if you could at least start this line of thinking.  With the addition of the 3 new race/classes the game has become unbalanced and a bit unfair. Take the skills "Negotiate - Scan and Navigate for example...   Negotiate is terran by default so all terrans get it..  but in the Original Live TT was alone in the trade buisness..  a fix of sort is really needed here. Why not give all traders Negotiate to Max skill?  Its after all a Trader skill.  Let TE and TS keep the Nerfed lvl 5 version and terrans still got the upper hand in this as a race.   Scan is obviosly a jenquai skill but tweaks towards explorers. So why not give all explorers the max lvl7 scan skill and let the JD and JS keep the lvl5 beeing jenquai.   Navigate is all over the place. 2 classes got it maxed..  TS and JE.  The abillity to warp fast with little energy use is clearly an explorer skill.  So why not let the PS get at least a lvl5 navigate?  From maxed on 2 explorers to nada on PS seems unfair as they all need this skill to jump between rocks. I do recognize the progens are supose to be limited in speed and hence lvl5 for PS.    Then out of the blue the TT gets navigate.   hmm  ok so this is actually a good skill for a long run class?  They need speed between the gates and not any use of saving energy as they travel.  (yes i know they had it in Live) ..   But if this is actually a Trade / explorer skill shouldent the 2 trader classes PP and JS get at least the lvl5 version as well?....   These are just thoughts and its time to start balancing the game based on 9 classes. We have now 6 classes and 3 out in the cold trying to fit in classes.   Johnsilver.
  9. The costs of going through backdoor can be cut down by knowing the items required in advance. I did reactor line with no info so it cost me an arm and a leg to build mutiple lvl8 reactors only to find it wasent the right sort. I have a thread called "fire fer kenlz" if you wanna look it up. But it is a spoiler..  You wanna cut down costs its great.  But you will loose the challamge of figuring the quest out for yourself.     Johnsilver
  10. Gold Token Fire Fer Kenlz  [Final.Post]   "Fire Fer Kenlz starts from the gear vendor at Fenris station.  (Piq Ki) It is from all the info i managed to gather the backdoor quest to open stage 1 of agrippa builds after you have done final 135 HU.   I finished. :) So here's the full mission in review .. [spoiler] Giz IX selfgrown crystals to Growlz..  = 15 refined Tiberium Giz 3 (Pirate) selfmade silvr urn wiz red an not privtr to kenlz  = Tang's Vigor L8 Giz 3 (Sparta) selfmade silvr urn wiz red an not privtr to kenlz = Warrior's Pride L8 Giz 3 (Mordana) selfmade silver urn wiz red (Dinna stands this un way) = Juggernaut L8 [/spoiler] I can confirm this opened up stage 1 reactor build for me and i was able to continue to L9 agrippa build :) I can't say for sure if this is the only Gold Token mission out there..  Like if you need Shields or Devices and so on..  There is another mission for ammo building called "ammo fer kenlz" that you should be able to pick up from weapon vendor at OMP.   Enjoy   Johnsilver.
  11. Success :)) The second reactor he asks is Warrior's Pride L8 :)   So on to final step..  Vulture or Juggernaut.   Johnsilver.
  12. Just as i thought its not the easy vendor reactors .  so Theodosius - Augustus and Julius is a no go.. Leaves both warriors reactors and i still need the prints before i can go check. On a side note i saw the the text for the next step says (Dinna stands this way).. My orginal thought was warrior's Pride..  as the saying goes "Stand Proud".. but that part is for Mordanan so not sure what to make of it. She stands like a "Vulture or Juggernaut" ?  lol..   time will tell.   Johnsilver.
  13. Tested the Theodosius no luck..  im gonna try Julius and Augustus next but i have a hunch Mr B won't make it as simple as that. Now i realized i don't actually have the prints for WH and WP..   so i need help on drop locations. All info out there is old and thoes i asked says i think its here, or there..  no confirmed drop location on either yet. You know please help me out :)   Ill keep posting.   Johnsilver
  14. TADA OOOOOOOOO ..... Ok i went back to Growlz after tuesday patsh...     had my 3 Silver Urn Shiny Pirate drop Tang's Vigor x3 in hold and ...... YEEEESSSSS!!     he wanted them :) Thanks again Stanig.  Now for next step.    Step 4. Giz three selfmade VIII Sprta silvr urn wiz red an not privtr to Kenlz.   I'll report when i figure this part out..  my original idea on reactors that contained the brimstone fire cell isent gonna fly here. No such reactor by sparta... so its prolly trial and error at this point. Augustus - Julius Tria - Theodosius - Warriors heart gamma - Warrior's Pride.   Johnsilver
  15. Every planet causes that bug for me..  I unchecked the protype reorder and its fixed.
  16. Takes notes..  quickly adds Stanig to my will ..   and the house goes to Stanig..  no not my greedy ass brother..  the Dev who helped me with agrippa saved me millions and that low life scum of a brother only cost me greef...   Seriously thanks a mill Stanig :)  Just beeing able to continue and see that all my works isent a complete loss means a lot to me.  I can always make more money and level new characters.. But had this gone unsolved i would never have touched agrippa again.   And this is good news for all..  now finally theres a light in the tunnel for future Agrippa builders after hu 135 :))   Respecfully Johnsilver.
  17. I appolgise to all who may be trying this mission my last post aired a lot of hosstilety.  Its all just very frustrating.    I wish you all the best of luck in the future to solve this mess.  I have had it myself. I wont get a penny back for all thoes lost failed items and time spent. Quick recap incase you still have the patience to even try...   Step 1.  Mine or rip yourself 15 Tiberium.  (refined tiberium crystals x75) Step 2.  -- now i want some "Gud Shiny Fire --   VIII. Prate. Silvr urn wiz red an not privtr. I wanna 3. VIII. Sprta. Silvr urn wiz red an not privtr. I wanna 3. VIII. Mrdna. Silvr urn wiz red. Dinna stand diz way. I wanna 3.   Step 3. Giz three self made VIII prate silvr urn wiz red an not privtr to Kenlz.   I tried to give him 3 Tang's Vigor reactor.  no luck. There are no other pirate made reactor that looks like a silver urn with red. Sentinels Dynamo would work but doesent drop. I thought i had it figured..  Tangs vigor (pirate)   Thodosius (sparta)   and vulture or juggernaut (mordana) All these are silver urns with red and all of them got a comp called fire cell.  But no luck.  The trick lies in figuring out "Silvr urn wiz red an not privtr"   If its not a reactor but guns i did look into guns with silver and red on them. I couldent find a pattern that would work for all 3 manufactors so it led me nowhere. I don't think red means RD's because all 3 parts are made by diffrent manufactors.   Its gonna be a faster path to succses making an alt PP and making sure i don't miss any step or hu block at this point.  (yeah thats tragic)   Johnsilver
  18. Hmmm   Tang's Vigor was mentioned here by Hobbs and i kinda almost forgot that..    Pirate drop..  silver urn with red and has the magic fire cell comp.. Sounds to good to be true..  almost like i had a good vibe here..    Off to see the Growlzard ..   Just came back. Tang's Vigor is silver urn with red.. its pirate drop, has a fire cell comp.   But i built 3 and was given the finger by Growlz..  (no talk bubble)...   Well im out of money ideas and even the will to go on now.  I cant afford this crap.  no other reactor even drops that fit the description nore any gun or device or item.  This is soo over the top insane im seriosly loosing all will to go on with EnB at this point.   This comes from the fact that i have now spent 400+ million credits and likely 130+ hours on Agrippa. This mission is about getting back and repair a misstake i made month back when i dident even have a damn clue i was making a misstake.   Wish only the other Devs would actually read the boards and look at all the posts about agrippa..  1 dev versus every Progen who plays..  When 300 people tell 1 guy hes wrong its usually because..   hes wrong.  So many Progens are dying for a change.   " I did edit this mesage and deleted some original frustration and rage. (incase you saw the original post) I belive the Agrippa desperatly needs a change but in this case it was a drop item that was not dropping and stopping me from progress..  So my original frustration was based on somewhat false information. Rather focus ahead  now "    Johnsilver.
  19. Hmmm "and not privtr"  Well it may be then a warrior only or explorer only item. Will look into that.  The sentinels dynamo reactor is out for now due to beeing uinique.. and not dropping i guess couse there is no builders listed.   I still look at the pretext of this part,   "Gud Shiny Fire"..  I dont see how this could relate to devices, reactors or shields.    'Un wiz red' may be a refrence to fire itself. If i had cash dropping out my ears i would build every item ingame till i got it right..  but as this costs an arm and a leg everytime you guess wrong i wanna feel a good vibe before i waist another 20-30 mill on beeing wrong.   Johnsilver.
  20. Hmm Hmm   Hit a snag..   or more like a complete meltdown :( Reactors isent working well..  some dont drop and the manufactors doesent really fit after all. the pre context for this part is "  Gud Shiny Fire "..   The wording in the text reads like 'silvr urn wiz red..'    Could be Silver and red,    could be Silver and something with RD.. But since all 3 says silver urn with red its not really logical its Red Dragons..  all have diffrent manufactors.   Gud fire..  shiny..  silver..  red..   Claw of the dragons would fit the first 1 part..  but second is described the same only made by  sparta..  so damn...  arggg     tested Dugran oya but no luck.  Might be the weapons i need are silver and red in color..  a few options there but cant think of anything that mordana drops of that color.   And in the mordana tree its says,  urn wiz red, Dinna stands this way..  prolly an extra clue. Just fails to become obvious to me.   Even if your not on this any crasy ideas you may have pls pls post them :)    maby i can make some pattern out of this if only 1 good hint or lead comes up first..   so so so so stuck here atm :/   Johnsilver  ( 1 card short of a good clue )
  21. Hehe.. yes i concidered like a hudred thousand times by now to just give up... The thing is that i already completed shields to lvl9, Weapons to lvl9, Comps, and on my PW i have all ammo, and on my PS i make devices to lvl9.. The 1 little stupid thing i missed was a tiny part of reactor stage 1..  it locks me out from the final lvl9 print. I can already make the ambush lvl 7-8. So after 300+ mill of waisted credits and over 100+ hours of playtime i kinda like to finish this and get that 1 remaining print.   I can already build the brimstone fire cell and im sorry the reactors i mentioned earlier was wrong..  they are: Juggernaut,  Sentinels dynamo and Vulture...  not theodosius...  my bad. They just fit so well as all of them has the fire comp and they are from the 3 diffrent metioned manufactors the quest asks for. Either way im gonna take the costs and all that shit couse someone has gotta be the first.  Hopefully my work can in the end help others :)   Johnsilver.
  22. I tried Brimstone Fire cell lvl 8 component.  No Luck.   Next Im thinking the its about the manufactors.  We have Pirate (Blacksun)   Sprta (Sparta)  Mrdna (Mordana)   And the fire cell component is actually part of 3 diffrent reactors each from 1 of these manufactors.   Juggernaut made by Mordana ..  Sentinels Dynamo made by Black Sun .. Theodosius made by Sparta. So next im off to try and build these reators that all has the firecell brim comp.   Ill keep posting.   Johnsilver
  23. Ok i picked this up couse im stuck at final step of reactors. This is from what i gather the backdoor quest to Agrippa.  Piq Ki NPC at Fenris station give this quest. If im right this is for thoes who passed the 135 HU already and still wanna do Agrippa.. but i can't say for sure. I was pointed to this quest to be able to complete my reactor lvl9 agrippa build.   Now i managed to do the first part where he asks you to get IX. Gem. Self grown un toxic.. The only self grown lvl9 gems are tiberium crystals. So i got me 75 crystals and refined them to 15 Tiberium. Woot.. it worked..   so far so good...  and then..    erhmmm  stuck :/   Next step reads as follows.. Giz three self made VIII prate silvr urn wiz red an not privtr to Kenlz.   i noted all 3 next steps when i first got the quest.. VIII. Prate. Silvr urn wiz red an not privtr. I wanna 3. VIII. Sprta. Silvr urn wiz red an not privtr. I wanna 3. VIII. Mrdna. Silvr urn wiz red. Dinna stand diz way. I wanna 3.   The overall headline to this part of quest is "Gud Fire"..   Im guessing its either guns or ammo i gotta make..  but thats as far as i can go alone. No one has had any leads, tip or info that has progressed me beyond this point.   This is getting so anoying its slowly drains my will to play EnB at this point.  300 mill and 200 hours invsted in agrippa quests and still i cant even reap my final reward.   If anyone has done this, or have any ideas please share them. I promiss ill write a full quest walkthough if I ever figure all this out.   Johnsilver  
  24. I did most of agrippa and still i can't get a straight answer from anyone. I'm sorry if i sound rude Mr Byakhee but i don't understand what your saying when you try to explain this. The ammo is capped at 50hu..  ok so..  erhmm   i must have lvl 50 hu done but im not allowed to do lvl 75 ????  Devices and so on capped at 100..  what does capped even mean ?  Is capped the minimum lvl for each stage ?   This hole quest line is a major big mess and the reason isent the challanging part of doing the quest..   its that no one in this galaxy can get any info on anything reguarding what is required to do it.   Really bad implementation of otherwice very cool content.   Remove any and all connection between progen regualr gameplay and the agrippa quest line.  this has gone on far enuff and its ruined life for so many progens. Non should ever have to play a game and think..  oh i better not do my next uppgrade.. i might mess up a quest.  thats foolish. And to do this you must play your PP extremly unbalanced or fail ..  like at OL 100 the build lines ask for max build.  thats 4 build lines at lvl7.  So to even concider the agrippa content i gotta skipp all forms of regualr gameplay and build the character based only on this quest.   makes no no no sence. (shakes head) ..     sad ..  it could have been super fun to try and figure all this out..  If i could have done it in flow with the normal gameplay.  I already know people out there are dying to yell at me now that this is optional..  Oh yeah... but what if im new to the game and miss this chanse?  or abbandon the quest when i realize its impossible ? (would be for most newbies)    sorry mate you aint gonna get your flechette couse you dident figure out the hardest, wierdest quest the game has ever seen with no info anywhere on how to do it, where to start or anything else. This quest is for experienced EnBer's. Experts and thoes who asks for a challange of this type.   Most players do not, and sertanly not everyone just couse they roll a Progen. Unlik this from hu's and remove the tokens.  It hasent got a place in EnB at all. Let progens get there hu when they need em and not have to worrie about silly quest requirements.    Johnsilver
  25. Yes i agree.. i was just throwing out an idea.. and maby it would be possible to make it so that the mobs 45 second timer starts only after he shoots his first beam at you.  this will be done at close range and from that first shoot you have 45 second to kill it..  or (as botters will)..  die. And i did say spawns like every 15-20 minutes. So if a guard is upp, another wont spawn.
