Making Circuits & Factories in ECO Game

Crazy times on the ECO server! We’re making significant progress ramping up the technology side of our city. We now have two factories, two blast furnaces, an oil refinery, two machine shops, an electronics table, and we’re ramping up to add a computer lab.

In the next 2-3 days we’ll be adding electricity to the entire city — a much needed luxury since we’re currently making circuits by candlelight.

I feel like I’ve been saying “electricity is coming” for a week now. That’s mostly due to the complexity and inter-dependencies of the profession system.

EverQuest’s Newest Progression Server: Coirnav

It's that time again! EverQuest recently announced their newest progression server. The details of this progression server are only slightly different from the previous iterations.

  • Content unlocks every 12 weeks until Gates of Discord
  • Post GoD, level cap raising expansions happen every 12 and non cap raising happen every 8 weeks
  • Experience is slower than Ragefire/ Lockjaw / Agnarr and closer to Phinigel post-exp boost. Translation: Decently slow but not painful
  • Raids are instanced
  • One character per physical computer

Now to answer the question many of you have already asked...

I don't know.

I'm debating.

I'd say I'm evenly split 50/50 on whether or not I will play on Coirnav. If I do, I'm playing a Cleric. But I don't know if I have it in me to grind in Unrest and Guk again through the pre-Kunark era. Perhaps not this soon.

I have until March 16, 2018 when Coirnav progression server launches.

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire VR Review

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is a new VR experience located in Downtown Disney. We were able to grab tickets on pre-sale last year before they sold out, and this morning, after months of waiting, was our turn to don the suits, helmets, and blasters and recover the Imperial intelligence.

Here's a quick story synopsis from the official Secrets of the Empire website:

Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion’s survival. Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn. Disguised as stormtroopers, grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill your team's orders.

What Happens When You Let Friends Drive Your Powered Cart in ECO Game

We’re having so much fun playing ECO (if you can’t tell from all of our posts about the game lately).  We’re reaching that points where we’re starting to have more fun and freedom in the game. We’ve progressed beyond simple stone and logs into an era where we can start to build bridges, pour asphalt, and drive powered carts around like something cool out of the 1800’s.

During one of our beautification projects, I let Yotor take a spin in the Keenmobile.

Well, as you can see from the image above, this is why you don’t let just anyone take your powered cart out for a spin.

We ended up having to dig it out, and I tried to pry it up with a shovel when suddenly the whole cart freaked out and launched itself into orbit traveling mach speed. My leg must have gotten stuck in the wheels because I was flailing about until the thing circled the planet three times then crashed in my backyard. I was thrown free of the cart and landed on the roof of a nearby building.

The whole ordeal was hilarious to the point of tears, and a lesson learned… build rails. Lots of rails.

I’d say within a day or two we’ll start to push into electronics and industry. That’ll put us making street lights and running electricity to our homes for 24/7 lighting! Wooho!

ECO Server Log: Enter the Mechanical & Industrial Age

Quick update for February 15th since it’s my birthday today and I’ll be spending most of it offline.

Our ECO server is really humming along! The age of mechanics is in full swing, and we’ve just begun to see the tip of the industrial era iceberg peaking up over the horizon.

I find myself in a raw materials meets machine-creation position. I’m building most of the advanced machines and refining most of the modern or quasi modern materials that will be used in future building.

Our server’s next step will be to step into a full industrial revolution mixed with some electronic developments. Electricity is coming to our world!
