$20,000 Loot Found On Arkadia

By | Anouncement | No Comments


Singapore – 8/3/2014 - Planet Arkadia, a virtual treasure hunting themed planet in the Entropia Universe, announced today several players were rewarded with the second largest hunting loot in Entropian history while defending the new Underground region against the threat of the Smuggler movement.

In the game players were introduced to the illegal movement dubbed “The Smugglers” and were requested by the Arkadian Colonial Administration (ACA) to protect the Arkadian Underground from being plundered and pillaged. Colonists from across the Entropia Universe came together as one to stand and fight.  They were greeted with an outstanding loot of $19,473 that will be part of an All Time High (ATH) that is recorded in a database and will be highly visible for all players.  The winner’s names will go down in history as the defenders of Planet Arkadia and as pioneers of Entropia Universe.

Each player walked away with nothing less than $500 of value in loot after they destroyed a “Smuggler Droid MK2″, a nasty form of technology constructed by the Smugglers to gather information and destroy anything with which it comes into contact.

“Planet Arkadia is a vibrant and growing economy within the Entropia Universe and we are pleased to see the rewards earned for players who were having loads of fun as usual in this event” said David Dobson Managing Director of Planet Arkadia Pte Ltd.

On March 26, 2014 Planet Arkadia announced the offering of Arkadia Underground Deeds, which will make up the world’s first $1,000,000 virtual property. Arkadia Underground gives all players a unique opportunity to participate in virtual land investment within Entropia Universe allowing players to share in the revenues of Arkadia Underground and receive dividends on a daily basis.

This innovative offering by Planet Arkadia enables players to participate in up to 200,000 deeds that have been priced at only 50 PED (or $5.00) per deed in direct response to player demand for more opportunities to invest at a lower entry price. The Real Cash Economy has been developed over a 10 year period providing a solid foundation for the virtual economy as all in-game currency ‘PEDs’ are transferable to US$ at a fixed rate of 10 PED for each dollar, unchanged for over 10 years. Importantly, participants are able to withdraw their earnings back to their real life bank accounts at any time.

Desert Island for Sale!

By | Anouncement | No Comments


The Arkadian Colonial Administration (ACA) is proud to present the first two of six private island estates.

The result of substantial land reclamation near to the coast of Sentosa, the first two estates have been constructed with a Desert theme. In due course, the ACA plans to introduce two Arctic islands and two Jungle islands.

Of the two released Desert islands, the first is currently for sale from the Arkoin Broker located at the IFN Supply Depot.

Price: 15,000,000 (fifteen million) Arkoins

The Arkoin Broker is selling a claim which can be redeemed with Community Manager Cyrus Chen for the actual land area deed. Therefore, the first colonist with 15,000,000 Arkoins to purchase the claim from the Arkoin Broker will be able to exchange this claim with Cyrus for the Land Area Deed.

Each island:

  • is located a short distance off-shore, not too far from a mainland Teleporter
  • has an approximate area of 2 square kilometres
  • includes an elegant residence complete with lounge, decking, lower floor bar, spiral staircase and panoramic views from upper floor viewing gallery. The residence comes with a Revival Point and an Estate Terminal, which can be used to claim the estate and set access to the residence.
  • All-in-one “LA Marker” that gives the estate owner access to two interfaces:
  • Land Area Settings – here the estate owner can set:
  • Hunting Tax
  • Mining Tax
  • Whether anyone, or only the owner, can create events on the Land Area
  • Whether or not PvP (Player Vs Player) mode is enabled on the Land Area
  • Whether or not SatNav is enabled on the Land Area
  • Creature Management – from here the estate owner can:
  • Utilise up to 6 (six) creature DNA slots to spawn creatures across the Land Area
  • Purchase Improvement Points by adding Fertilizer
  • Spend Improvement Points to control maturity of DNA spawns

A variety of estate upgrade options are available. Further information is located here.

Remember, whoever gets 15,000,000 Arkoins to the Arkoin Broker first, gets the deed!

Good luck!


GUNNAR Promotion!

By | Anouncement | No Comments

Arkadia Studios today announced a partnership with GUNNAR Optiks to create Virtual Gaming Eyewear.

Arkadia Studios and GUNNAR Optiks have joined forces to bring a real world piece of gaming equipment to life in the virtual world. A 3D version of GUNNAR’s Vayper Onyx will be available to colonists on Planet Arkadia from today, after the release of Planet Arkadia Update 2013.1.1. Additionally, colonists will be able to purchase a certificate for the real life version directly from the Arkoin Broker.

GUNNARs are high tech computer eyewear, designed to protect, enhance and optimise your vision. They use a number of specific technologies to reduce the stress on your eyes, including FRACTYL lens geometry, DIAMIX lens material, IONIK lens tints and iFi lens coatings.

The full press release can be read here.

Part of the recently announced Arkadia Sunrise era is about promoting Planet Arkadia globally. The GUNNAR promotion represents an opportunity to do so. As such, we have created which we encourage colonists to take a look at.

How to get virtual GUNNARs

Random hunting loots across the planet will drop a limited number of virtual GUNNARs glasses over approximately the next three months, in both Male and Female versions.

How to get real life GUNNARs

A limited number of certificates will be available to purchase from the Arkoin Broker with today’s patch (Planet Arkadia Update 2013.1.1). Each certificate needs to be validated with Cyrus | Arkadia either here at Planet Arkadia Forum or in-game, contacting the avatar “Cyrus Arkadia Community Manager”.

The specific real life item is the onyx coloured model detailed here.

Happy hunting!

Additional Information from GUNNAR Optiks

  • Increases CONTRAST for greater visual accuracy and efficiency
  • Enhances DETAIL for sharper, clearer vision
  • Helps REDUCE GLARE and improves focus
  • Improves visual ENDURANCE for extended gaming sessions
  • DECREASES eye FATIGUE and dry eyes

The Reality:
You spend most of your waking hours glued to your computer screen, smart phone, tablet, or TV monitor. As the hours go by, you subject your eyes to the harsh, high intensity blue light and glare from your screen. This constant viewing of digital screens can create visual stress, eye fatigue, dry eyes, irritation, and even headaches — leading to an obvious conclusion.

Staring at a computer for long hours takes its toll on your eyes.
Add the standard 2-4+ hours a day gaming and your reality is complete and total visual burnout.

The Solution:
GUNNAR Optiks Advanced Gaming Eyewear is a technical eyewear solution that helps protect, enhance, and optimize your vision.
Whether you are gaming for long hours or working on the computer, GUNNAR eyewear helps minimize eye fatigue and visual stress while improving contrast, comfort, and focus.
GUNNAR Advanced Gaming Eyewear also creates a more comfortable and rich visual experience for the avid gamer, improving visual efficiency, endurance, and recovery.

GUNNARS Are Prescription Compatible:

Herman Industries – New and Renamed Weapons

By | Anouncement | No Comments

In the light of recent adjustments to the skill requirements for each of its ARK, ASI, CAP and LAW firearms, Herman Industries has taken the time to reassess how its range of equipment fits with the playing styles and skill levels of the colonists of Arkadia.

Historically, Herman has endeavoured to make the task of choosing the right weapon as simple as can be for its customers. For this reason, Herman has always included a number in its weapon naming that reflects the minimum required skill level.

Swift and constructive colonist feedback has brought two issues to Herman’s attention after the recent changes to minimum skill requirements for the various firearms:

  1. “Gaps” have emerged between skill requirements for the various weapons as a result of “stretching” them across a wider skill range.
  2. The numbers in the weapon names can now be somewhat confusing, particularly for a colonist new to Herman and/or Arkadia.

After considering the above issues, Herman has decided to make a number of additions and adjustments to the ARK, ASI, CAP, LAW range of weapons.

Note that no weapon stats will change. Changes to existing weapons are cosmetic only.

Effective with the next Planet Partner Update 2013.1, the following changes will occur:

  • Twenty (20) new firearms will be introduced to Arkadia:
    • 4 x ARK
    • 6 x ASI
    • 5 x CAP
    • 5 x LAW
  • Unlike the existing Herman weapons, these new weapons will be manufactured only.
  • Each of the four unlimited Herman weapons currently available at the Trade Terminal will have their “8 R” or “99 R” suffix changed to “TT R”, to signify “Trade Terminal” and “Repairable”.
  • Every other ARK, ASI, CAP, LAW weapon will have the number in its name changed to the minimum skill requirement number. For example, the Herman ASI-40 Desert (L) now has a minimum skill requirement of level 42, so its new name is Herman ASI-42 Desert (L).
  • Item Descriptions for all ARK, ASI, CAP, LAW models will be updated to reflect the changes.
  • All relevant Blueprints will also have their names and Item Descriptions adjusted according to the changes.

Please note:

  • No existing weapon stats will change. Changes to existing weapons are cosmetic only.
  • The standard, Desert, Arctic and Jungle namings and conventions have been retained, and applied to the new weapons as well. As before, “Desert” is given to weapons with a longer range, “Arctic” is for those with a higher damage per shot, and “Jungle” is for more rapid fire, closer range combat. This continues to be reflected in the Item Descriptions.
  • Item Descriptions will still show the next and preceding weapon in the relevant class, but the text has been given more clarity. For example, in the case of an ASI Arctic weapon, “Next Model:” now says “Next ASI Arctic Model:”.

Following is a list of the entire ARK, ASI, CAP and LAW ranges as of the next Planet Partner Update 2013.1, showing the existing and new names.

All NEW weapons are listed in bold.

Curb the Oratan Food Supply

By | Anouncement, Events | No Comments



Leaderboard now available!

Date: 1st September 3008Dear Arkadians,


On August 9th, the IFN began discussing reports of a variety of disturbing changes on the continent of Sentosa. Two new creatures, the Feran and the Ostelok, suddenly appeared in healthy numbers on the eastern side of the continent, and multiple Oratan camps were suddenly noticed in a variety of locations.

It is the appearance of these camps which concerns me the most. I believe they represent a threat, and the first real change in Oratan strategy that the IFN has seen to date.


Thus far, no significant force of Oratan has revealed itself from the camps, however I remain concerned that they may be somehow aiding the vast populations of Oratan that we already share Arkadia with. It is still uncertain as to whether or not their numbers are indeed “unlimited” as the ancient Arkadians warned us in The Signal, and I am very wary that we have been surprised by the Oratan before.

Our scientific community has made a small amount of progress in studying the two creatures to appear recently, establishing that the Feran is not a bird, but most likely a mammal. This unfortunately does not appear to be leading us any closer to solving the mysteries at hand.


I have decided, with full support from my scientists, to test whether we can have an indirect influence on the numbers of Oratan by affecting their food supply. We’re not sure exactly what that food supply is, but we need to find out if we are to make any headway against the Oratan. That’s why we’re going to cast a wide net.

Colonists, we need your help to cull the booming native populations of all creatures that have been discovered on Arkadia.

We have therefore created a new hunting competition with some very impressive prizes.


The IFN is offering a variety of Unlimited Smuggler equipment that was recently confiscated from Sanctuary Cove.

In addition to these Smuggler weapons, full value suits of Limited armour from Lorika Tek will be available as prizes.

The competition will last for approximately six weeks. More specific details are included below.

Thank you for your attention, and for your ongoing service to the future of Arkadia!

  • Each Category has a set of 2 mobs (creatures). Each global on either of the mobs in a Category will earn a point. You can choose to hunt both mobs or concentrate on one mob in each category.
  • In the event that there is a tie for any of the prizes, the first player to have achieved the points in that category placing will win the prize, and the other will take the next prize, if any. For example, if two players each achieve 20 globals in their category, and this is the higest result so they appear to have tied for first place. The first player to have reached 20 globals wins first prize, and the other player wins second prize.
  • Final call on prize winners will be decided by Arkadia Studios.
  • Top 3 Prizes for each category will be ready for collection from Cyrus right after the event. Bonus prizes will be given one week later, after gender of the avatars have been confirmed.
  • Arkadia Studios takes a strong stand against foul play. Anyone found trying or caught cheating will be given a direct ban both on the forum and in-game for life.
