  1. I am in the middle of Raising a new PW and I have been doing the Agrippa Missions. I think that we are missing out on build-able high level weapon choices. The Bile Weapons make up the majority of our weapons. I have an idea of combining some real world weapon concepts to E&B. To give an example of this I am going to use the AR-15 platform. The AR-15 is a modular design that has two major components. There is the "lower" which has the stock, pistol grip, magazine well, and fire control group. The second major component is the "upper" which is the barrel, hand guard, and bolt carrier group. You can stick many different caliber uppers on an AR-15 lower. I personally own a few uppers in .22 LR, 5.56x45 (the most common), and 300 AAC "Blackout". You can also get uppers chambered in very large calibers like the 450 Bushmaster or .458 SOCOM. One thing to note here, all of these calibers with the exception to the .22 LR use standard AR-15 magazines. You might have to change the magazine follower out, but the magazines can accept all of these different calibers. There are also many firearms that fire the same calibers. An example of this would be the standard AR-15 and M249 SAW. They both are chambered in 5.56x45 NATO. The AR-10 and the M1A are both chambered in the 7.62x51 NATO. Why not apply these concepts to E&B? I would like to see more lvl 9 weapons that use lvl 9 ammo. We could maybe combine Agrippa and Diopogee technologies. I would love to have Impact Missile Launchers besides the Ballistic Sniper and player made explosive projectile launchers. Maybe we can have a mission for the lvl 9 weapon builders allow them to take PM weapons and modify them into different weapons that use a better ammo. i.e. Modify a Bile Cannon at the build terminal that combines a lvl 9 Flechette, lvl 9 Bile Cannon and another random part into a weapon with the buffs of the components that fires Diopogee ammunition. I would then add more ammo flavors that are given as a mission reward. You could extend this to the terrans as well. i.e. combine a lvl 9 Bile Weapon and Zet ML into something that uses lvl 9 Diopogee ammunition. Please! Give us some more high end weapons because bile weapons are bland.
  2. Special exp weekends

    I have seen 30% XP boosts during the Christmas festivities. I am not sure if this is going to continue in the future. Show up for the Christmas stuff for the Polar Express even if the XP boost is not present.
  3. Please bring back Threaded Archos and the machine

    I agree with Thuvia. Maybe give it the same buffs as the DEA but available to all classes? I have to say that the reinforcer device awesome!

    I thought of another item of interest. Is there a plan to release "production" versions of the prototype equipment? I would be interested in using the explosive projectiles on a PS or PW (grav link debuffs explosive).
  5. I recently worked for many hours to get the ores together to obtain 5 passes for the Mars Mission. I was planning on buying the Archos Threading Machine because I had seen it as an option when I bought the Bile Threading Machine. I pointed out to a dev that the part used to feed the machine was not sold at a vendor and that about 10 people on the serve (including my main TT) have the ability to make the part used to feed the machine. I also told them that the ammo was non-trade. The part can also be used by many of my warriors to make the ammo at a terminal and I can fire them in my Archos cannons. I can not however trade them to my PS to use. That machine was my only hope of getting the ammo on my PS. The Archos Threading Machine is no longer available from the Mars Project. A GM informed me that the ammo was now considered obsolete. While I agree that there were a few things to fix with the machine and the ammo, it was not broken to the point that it needed to be removed from the game. The people that wanted to use it would just have to catch one of the part builders online to feed the machine. With the /craft command, it would be very easy to crank out a stack in a few minutes. I was working towards getting this machine all day on Thursday 11/2 because I don't have the pattern for the ammo on my PS. Finding enough of the ores to make a stack of refined alloys is not easy and takes a lot of time. I was hoping to get the archos threading machine and then crank out the ammo in space for my PS to use. With the threading device, the pattern for the ammo would not matter. I now have 5 passes on my PS that I had obtained with the purpose of buying the Archos Threading device. Please bring the ammo back. It was not easy to work with, but it was still usable and worked. It is not obsolete.

    Another idea. I was thinking that maybe we could release a PS only PL that is made in the refine terminal by the PS. You could have a simple Archos cannon be refined with a part that you get from the mars mission by turning in a few stacks of ore. Make the PL non-trade. The specs would be as follows; Fires either the normal archos or the threaded archos ammo. 0.9 sec reload time and the same amount of energy use as a normal archos - +150% Hull Damage Control -Improved Grav Link by 3.33 levels -Improved Powerdown by 3.33 levels -debuffs target with a -63.9% on impact

    I recently mined enough Mars Mission ores to get the Ten-gu Bile Threading machines. I had no issues refining the parts used by the machine to make the ammo and was pleased that I could make bile ammo in space with one of my Terran Scouts. I have not bought the Archos Threading machine yet but it is next on my list. I assume that it will make the "Threaded Archos rounds". Can you please get clarification on this before I buy the machines? This ammo is not tradeable. Can we modify this ammo and make it tradeable? The ammo stack sizes of Threaded Archos are fantastic at 1600. I would also recommend that the DPS of the Threaded Archos ammo be raised to be slightly higher than the bile cannons. The Zet ML has a slightly higher DPS than the bile ML, why not make the Archos have a slightly higher DPS? The higher DPS would be offset by the smaller stack size. You could turn this around and keep the Threaded Archos as non-trade and make the DPS and stack sizes higher than the Bile Cannons. This would give incentive for people to play the PS more often. The part used to feed the machine is a big question for me as well. I was able to refine the parts needed for the Bile Threading machine. When I put the parts in my hold for making the Sparta Machined Archos round, it did not appear on my refine list. I do have the ability to make the Sparta Machined Plasma round part. I think that this is what the Archos Threading machine is fed to make the ammo but I was not sure. How do I obtain the parts to feed the Archos threader? Are they refined by an explorer or manufactured by a trader? One last thing. Are there plans to introduce chemical threading machines?

    It is now November but I can't find a November dry erase board topic. I recently mined enough Mars Mission ores to get the Ten-gu Bile Threading machines. I had no issues refining the parts used by the machine to make the ammo and was pleased that I could make bile ammo for use by other players in space. I have not bought the Archos Threading machine yet but it is next on my list. I assume that it will make the "Threaded Archos rounds". This ammo is not tradeable. Can we modify this ammo and make it tradeable? The ammo stack sizes of Threaded Archos are fantastic.

You could turn this around and keep the Threaded Archos as non-trade and make the DPS and stack sizes higher than the Bile Cannons too. This would give incentive for people to play the PS. One last thing. Are there plans to introduce chemical threading machines?

    The Mars Missions have been a bit frustrating due to the hard to find ores. Could we maybe tweak the turn ins? 150 Tantalum ores are more difficult to get than 30 platinum ores but they both get you 1 pass. I have been thinking about how it would be cool to have a "mining raid" sector where you can pay to get in and have 30 minutes of mining time in the sector. You could even toss a random AA in the sector for extra fun.
  10. This Morning 5/26/17. Daughter Graduated

    Congrats on your daughter's graduation. Good luck with getting better. Keep an eye out for abnormal pains etc. My wife's uncle got kidney cancer and it spread to his bones. He ignored the pain way too long and he had to have bone removed.
  11. Offended

    The guy making the complaint has an racist avatar picture of an Asian with "ROR" on it. That is just pure awesome hypocracy!

    Ok you won't sell us the "whine". You can at least tease us a bit with a free sample in a thimble.

    Ask the devs when Ardus will open up. If they remain tight lipped about it, perform Chinese nipple torture on them until they talk.
  14. The Dry Erase Board For June 2016

    I would really like to see the Progen Privateer get their missing skill. I personally think it should be a Hull Damage Control charging skill (HDC) that would raise the HDC for group members. This makes sense because Terran traders get the shield charging which boosts shields and the Jenquai Seekers get the Reactor Optimization which boosts the reactor.
  15. Raid Rotation Discussion Time For A Change?

    I agree with this.  Leave the current agreement alone.  I initially pushed for an Epic spot and was not happy about passing the tests and still being denied a spot.  Despite my original feelings about it, I am glad things turned out the way they did.  I am happy with how well the public raids have worked for the last 2 years.
