Possible OE return

Post  Ambrose Foxx on Sun Mar 25, 2012 8:45 am

For all those who do not use Mogwee, Paul has suggested he may be able to get OE back online, as he has found Servers that run at 20% of the old cost... More news to come

Hehe well that is good news, I hope he's looking at Android as well. I have missed OE greatly as I'm sure we all have. Hello Mylo et al.

Ya, I've been playing Vendetta with Gunnar MG.....Traveller AR doesn't work...end off.
It'll be good if it comes back but Paul needs to look at Android as Apple are way to restrictive. Did Paul save the game data or will we be starting from scratch? Gotta go work. Hope me dodgy deep cruisers still safe. Can somebody get a hold of Oldwick as he is really missing OE..

Hello everyone, as Thoth says, we have been playing Vendetta for some time although I go by the name Gunnar MG on there (which I like more than Ole Gunnar so if OE is resurrected I will change to that). If we get back on OE I really hope we keep all the 'grinding' we already did as I wouldn't relish the thought of months (for me) of working back up to Heavy class. Anyway, here's hoping we can all fly together again soon cheers

Lol, like you I changed names as I moved games, I changed to Aurora Lantean when I moved to Astro Empires, think I'll keep that if OE returns... and Prot, OJ is in the Mogwee chat....

Are we on Palringo still, I just loaded it and can't remember f all.
This news better be accurate as my current game isn't playing on my phone, and I'm getting the OE twitch. If anybody has a means of contacting Paul tell him we will pay $9.99 a month.. whatever it takes.

Paul saved the code so it will be starting off right where we left off. That includes crashes and all. However, there's a caveat on that. He is considering wiping the slate clean. Fresh start for all. All colonies wiped, credits etc. he is considering letting xp remain.

He will not have the development team like before, but possibly some might come back. It will be about a month or so before he starts it if he decides to definitely do it. He expressed that he'd like to see as many of the old players back as possible.

I don't mind starting from scratch money and colony wise, but it would be good to have those returning players keep their xp. It would help the game immensely for noobs to see the bigger ships, and have us give advice etc, with the possible exception of Dr Whitface. If Paul perhaps could resurrect the website first so that people can get together and contribute. He needs to know we are willing to keep OE going and pay for it, if he's willing to set it up. Plus perhaps an OE Facebook page...

I think this is an excellent idea. Credits and colonies scrubbed but XP remaining will encourage vets to return and, as Thoth says, guide noobs and give them status to aim for. That certainly worked for me when i started. Removing all the colonies will make it all a bit like frontier country but that is good as at least great tracts of space and resources won't be controlled by the few...at the outset anyway.
I also think a subscription could be paid although I know many who don't like the idea. Like Thoth I'm paying $9.99 (whatever that is in GBP anyway) for Vendetta which I think is a little steep so perhaps subscribers could get a month free then something like £4 a month?
Finally, does Paul visit this forum? If not, could someone suggest to him that he does?

revive the forum and wiki page before OE re-launch would be a great idea, so we can see hoe player community react about this, and figure out the best approach.

as far as the player stats concern, I am sure no matter what is the decision Paul is going to make, someone will not be happy. Paul just need to make sure he is doing the right thing for the game. however, one thing to keep in mind is that lots of stuff was purchased by real money, and some of them were not cheap (i.e. blueprint can go as much as $50 USD), for those players who spent real money might not be too happy that a game reset wipe out all the spending. (unless, I assume that they can get some credit back for future in game spending)

that's just my 2 pennies. Smile

Don't think we will get any refunds at this late date, its more a case I think of getting players on with ships flying rather than going back to how it was. What is done is done, so I think if we got the xp back and perhaps a half decent ship perhaps that wouldn't be that bad. We all bought expensive kit from IWS and aim sure we will again, but giving back all our old kit is just inviting trouble.

I hope a credit reset wouldn't necessarily wipe out my Rapier chassis I have in storage. Chasing that down took a while and I never got to finish retrofitting it. It's going to be hard enough just remembering where I left.
