A priority one mission has been issued to all AFS soldiers by General Darkstarr. Bane activity has increased, General British is missing and, we fear, he may be working for them. It will be brutal, and many of you will die, but this is what you trained for Troops. Be sure to have lots of ammo and trauma kits on hand.
We deploy this evening at 19:00 hours BST (EU) / 22:00 hours CST (US).
It's Feedback Friday and today General British talks about the upcoming content package "Operation 0: Fair Trade". This will be the first "Operations" update that should be ready around the launch of the game. Future Operation updates are planned to be released every few months as well as patches between them which will implement other changes, content and fixes.
Operation 0: Fair Trade will introduce a new feature to the game, Military Surplus. These Military Surplus outposts will allow players to buy and sell items in a fully-browsable store which should eventually support auctioning as well as consignment based buying and selling.
Tabula Rasa Lead Developer Paul Sage has today announced some very exciting news on what the developers have planned for the games endgame content.
The features mentioned in the sneak peek include; Personal Armour Units (Available at level 40, think AFS Mechs), Command Opportunity (Command, teach & outfit your own squad of NPCs), Flashpoints (Require multiple squads to conquer) and finally Clan Warfare (Selectable clan buffs, clan controllable control points with bonuses, Capture the flag & hold the location type zones. - These are just a few of the features they are working on!
It has been announced today that the release of Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa has been delayed until the 2nd of November 2007. This is to give the game developers more time to address several issues including stability & balancing as well as giving players more time to continue testing the upcoming content and the continent of Ligo (level 38+). Due to this delay, the Pre-Order head start date is now planned for the 30th of October.
CuppaJo has recently announced on the Official beta forums that their plans for segregating the EU & US communities have now been cancelled. This is fantastic news for the SSX with us having members from all over the world, giving us the opportunity for all of us to play on the same server together if that's what we decide!
"As many of you know, we had planned to segregate the US and EU communities in the near future and going forward for launch. However, after having a worldwide beta that allowed players to play on either server with their friends and guildmates on both sides of the pond, we have decided NOT to segregate players but instead to allow you to login and pick where you want to play - US or EU.
We will still have servers located in both the US and the EU (US servers are West and East Coast - EU servers are in Germany) and events will be run like they have been in beta - US servers have events during US primetime and EU servers will have events in EU primetime.
We have a few support issues to work out - such as /bug working no matter what server you are but we feel this is the right decision for our player community."
I am pleased to announce the launch of our latest group website, for Tabula Rasa!
The site is intended to be used for displaying general Tabula Rasa news as well as any group news that we may have to share, a gallery to show off our screenshots and a page explaining who we are, what we’re about and how to go about joining us.
The site is also intended to be small, so whether we have one or two (EU/US) groups in TR when the game is released, the site should operate just as good for two groups as it would for one, making it a perfect place to introduce our new recruits to. That said, if we need to add an extra page for something in the future that shouldn't be a problem.
I must say I'm very pleased with the site so I can only hope everyone else is too, if you encounter any problems just give me a shout and I'll see what I can do.
Finally I'd just like to say a huge thanks to Anny who has helped me solve several problems that I came across throughout the building process which has been a big help!
