  1. Net 7 Wiki.

    Well specifically I wanted to fix the reference to the Chili Popper in "New Content" to also mention that Terran Scouts can do the mission line too. But that whole 'new content' section is badly out of date, and there is a fair collection of good suggestions for the main page in its discussion page from people frustrated that the admins have gone absent and nobody active seems to have permissions to make updates. Also there are pages only reachable via searching that nobody would know about, like the 'mechanics' and 'buff stacking mechanics' pages I recently updated. Is there no permission level between site admin and 'everyone else' ? Looking at update history there are a handful of people making regular updates, and but I can see a need to keep just anyone from defacing the main start page.
  2. Rebooting the economy

    The big problem is connecting mineral/ore buyers and sellers. With the current system of Market channel they need to be lucky enough to both be online at the same time and willing to make the trades. The is only exacerbated by lower server populations, or players who play at off-peak hours -- which are often the best times to be mining! Vendors / ripping components are done for convenience because the component vendors are online all the time. It's been suggested to have an Auction House, which would be nice certainly for unique items. Minerals and ores are more of a commodity, and an auction house might work for them, but I think a commodity marketplace might be a better model to use. The Market system of EVE online is a nice model to emulate, but its complexity is way overkill. IT could be as simple as a minerals commodity vendor, where the back-end tracks buys and sells of items from that vendor. If there are more buyers than sellers, prices for that commodity (ore/mineral) go up. If there's more sellers, it goes down. Right now vendors have fixed prices they buy minerals/ores for -- if you force existing vendors to no longer take these commodities, miners making their fortunes on common gasses would crash the prices of those and pricing would encourage the mining of more useful ores.
  3. Net 7 Wiki.

    This thread is nearly 3 years old, and the main page hasn't been updated in quite some time. Is there a way that those of us still actively contributing to it can be added permissions to do things like update it/fix errors in the main page?
  4. This thread really should have been started on April 1.
  5. How do I get the new classes?

    And the latest net-7 patch in Oct 2017 made the new classes available in the normal game client. No need to run external programs to do that now. -Zarg
  6. The problem is that the hull upgrade mission tells all Progen to go to Warship Genesis to pick up their hull upgrade mission. When you get there, the target 'talk bubble', which is usally the obvious way to get missions, brings up talk text to get you the 'What's Happened to Var' mission, which at level 50 is a suicide run to Primus Planet. The actual hull upgrade mission comes from the 'message' icon at the top of the screen next to the emote menu, which is very non-obvious. Prior to the V'rix invasion, the only notice a new Progen would get at genesis was the flashing notice icon, and the observant player would know to click on that. Now the obvious action is the target talk bubble, which sends new progen on the wrong mission. I've updated the wiki page on the progen hull upgrade missions cautioning of this issue. Alas, too few new progen bother to look at that. -Z
  7. TT Raid Setup/Gear

    The original page was just a copy of the Terran Enforcer guide, which I took a first pass through at fixing. Clearly I missed a few! I have gone and fixed the things you pointed out. Thanks for the feedback! -Z
  8. TT Raid Setup/Gear

    I have attempted to copy much of the wisdom in this thread into a Gear Guide on the net7 wiki. https://www.net-7.org/wiki/index.php/Terran_Tradesman_Gear_Guide Feedback and/or updates much appreciated. -Zarg

    End-Game Gear Guide for Jenquai Explorer, I put up on the Wiki. Feel free to update as necessary, or give me feedback to update it with. https://www.net-7.org/wiki/index.php/Jenquai_Explorer_Gear_Guide -Zarg
  10. Jenquai Defender

    End-Game Jenquai Defender Gear Guide -- now updated on the Net-7 Wiki. Check it out, add updates as necessary, or give me feedback and I'll put them in. https://www.net-7.org/wiki/index.php/Jenquai_Defender_Gear_Guide -Zarg
  11. Please bring back Threaded Archos and the machine

    I always thought the threading machine a neat mechanic. If its not too much effort to fix the bugs in it, I'd llove to see it kept in game.
  12. I'm sorry if I'm being too subtle. I did NOT call you a liar, but I did say that you sometimes used lies and distortions to drive home some point. You seem so quick to distort this and take offense that you can't see the subtle difference. I don't have anything more to say when you prove my points for me. -Z
  13. quod erat demonstrandum
  14. Dry Erase Board October 2017

    Yeah, that mining raid sector sounds a lot like Ceres. Nothing in there right now except a lot of nice fields to mine. You do have to be Chavez-friendly to get in though, so that keeps out a lot of the scrubs. I suspect the DEVs intentionally made the project use rare/hard-to-find ores. You'll appreciate the reward more at the end if the challenge was harder. -Zarg
  15. I think Mouli means well, and some of the stuff he has done has been great. The whiteboard posts and communication shared form the DEVs in his updates in this forum have been really great. However, what concerns and disappoints me is he is quick to take offense in discussions, and resorts to namecalling and ad-hominem attacks. This and the distortion and lies I've seen him use to push an agenda really bother me. I really hope he'll take this as constructive criticism, and not yet another attack. The cynic in me says he'll take at as an insult and react with more attacks, only proving my point. With this mixed opinion, I'm abstaining from Thuvia's poll. And Mouli, if you're reading this, don't let the haters get to you. You do great things when you're on an even keel. -Zarg
