    Angry First Impressions by Tina

    Looks good, Cool creatures, TERRIBLE LOOT, Waste of PEDs, Don't hunt don't fly don't Dream of toulan... You will have nightmares I promise.

    4 Different Loots
    No Mob specifics
    No Change in Loots per Creature.
    No Breaking even, Always a 20% Return.
    Creatures have retarded amounts of health for the amount of loot they drop.
    Garbage mining 20% Returns as well.

    I am not trying to hate on Toulan, But there have been lies told about mob specific loots. You added residue.

    Waste of Oil to fly here even though it looks Cool.. Looks won't get you everywhere..


    Best regards.. Good Luck.. Good luck with Toulan.

    I don't get how people can be so negative about a planet that is here now about 6 days and is still in Beta (yes I know many feel the entire universe still is). People just don't see what else there is to do other then just hunt stuff and make money. Explore the planet walk around discover weather types that we have not seen before, see creatures doing all sorts of different moves (Teenage Mutant Ninja Tabtab for example). To be honest this planet feels great to me and brings back memories of a long time ago. The fact that little diversity in loot is a problem these days is what is the problem with the game not the fact that there is little diversity.

    The focus is to much on making money (or trying to do so) and to little about enjoying a planet and that is both the case for players and planet partners. In this case Toulan is doing the opposite for me, making a beautiful planet first and putting in the other stuff second.

    I would say the post is bout bad loot in general not Toulan specifik . However its a valid point bout only 4 types. Its hurting Toulan. I dont get that MA that knows how this works dosent put up a basic valid strukture for new planets. Basicly a basic eco for a starter planet. As is now U explore and enjoy for a few days then U leave.
    Its not about money for us but it SHOULD be for Toulan. Wanting to keep us here should be a prio. And without loot there will be no crafting, without crafting no reason for mining. So basicly it stops the economy of a new planet.

    Toulan has been great for me. Interesting mining, even though it is mostly Oil and lyst it has been a project for me to map it out and now I am only missing Youd in my collection .

    I really like the planet, the creatures, the lore and I throroughly look forward to the future of Toulan. IT IS STILL IN BETA...... so give it some time before you put it down.

    So you broke even with 4 different loot types that have a 1-3% markup on Calypso and you profited. Not only are you lying but I am pretty positive you are an affiliate for the owner of Toulan.

    As said the current issues is not the planet itself. The planet LOOKS AMAZING cool feel cool sounds, different architecture involved in many different ways to enjoy the walk around.

    The issues are the 4 loot types, Oil and Lyst for mining as said, No planet specific items and there is no planet specific mob drops. Regardless if Toulan is a BETA PLANET, It is a joke how there is no other loots besides the 4 main loots I have stated above and others have stated in other posts.

    Don't get me wrong I like Toulan I think the planet and creatures look cool and have a great feel too them. Its the Economic problems that make Toulan a bad place to be right now, Not only me but PLENTY of others feel the same way.

    If I were to buy a planet make a deal with MA, I would want to keep some players on my planet having them create their new home on my planet.. That will not happen with Toulan sitting the way it is, And people will not risk it.

    Toulan is a Great looking planet, The Architecture work the sounds, creatures and feel of the planet are very unique and worth the trip to experience, But hunting and mining on Toulan is not worth 1 shot with an opallo.

    I didn't call you a liar for your supposed "20% Return" even though I can't imagine how's that possible, especially since shooting in the air doesn't consume ammo anymore; or how < 50% return is possible, for that matter. I just accepted that you had an extremely unlucky experience and shared mine. Note that I didn't say a word about anything but loot, because I see the current planet's state as a too early draft to make any appraisals yet. They haven't even had a chance to do any fixes after the launch.

    Yeah, an affiliate, right. They pay me by putting 80% bonus in my loot

    Unhappy

    mrs cool fire and I have been here since the second day at least I think it was the second day, may have been the first. We have had a nice time, lots of places where the loot was not so good, but have found a few spots where could actually say have seen a tt profit on a few hunts.

    Only oil and lyst on my mining attempts but that should change soon

    Now if I crafted all the oil then it would be even better, sadly I left my books on caly : anyone want to bring me a bp so I can craft my oil
    the one on auction was way to high priced

    I haven't visited Toulan as yet, but Obie and I are planning an adventure when we can fit it into our schedule, and are looking forward to it. We love exploring, and we've both been more social-focused over the years rather than hardcore gamers from a "play" perspective. However, the first 3 of my almost 9 yrs in EU (Apr 2nd) were definitely as a player with the social aspect being a part of it until things started changing.

    I have followed the player progress since Toulan launched, from watching live streams, to other videos, data collected and presented, and personal (subjective) accounting of experiences, and it has all been very mixed to say the least.

    I like the theme of Toulan, and enjoyed the cartoon storyline they presented in PDF format prior to launch, as well as think there is potential for where they want to go with their development, but there are also a great number of variables to consider as well.

    I agree with RAZER that there's more to our universe than making money, and have spent the majority of my time the last 6 years of 9 exploring and writing about our universe only. I can appreciate the graphical visions of the PPs, and really love taking in all there is to visually enjoy, as well as the social environment.

    However, I can also agree with Ridan and some things that Tina has mentioned with regard to the potential success of a planet right out the gate. Many of us have been around long enough to know that having the basics in place to start building on an economy is crucial, and that even a week's delay in doing so can have negative effects. We've seen it happen before, and it then becomes a "catch up" game.

    Resources and blueprints should be in place at a minimum so that hunters, miners and crafters have a means to facilitate movement with the economy. Whether a planet in EU is in Beta or not, it just makes logical sense to make sure that what is present out the gate at launch will not only draw "new players" and give existing players an opportunity to help build the economy, but that basic features are in place to "retain" players that have their first experiences.

    If a planet isn't prepared with the basics to give themselves half a chance at launch, then it shouldn't happen until they're ready. That said, I am absolutely looking forward to exploring Toulan and the addition of a more diverse culture within our universe.

    I wish them every success.

    I agree with the Above post 100% And that really is clearly the basics of what I am saying.

    Yes its in beta but beta is not even the word to use for toulan. Toulan is in a state as a game tester for the past 10 years Pre-Alpha is the correct term. Beta is close to a final release Toulan is far from that.

    How ever. The planet should not be played on unless you want to help ALPHA test the planet or pay the ped to fly there for a soul purpose of a new Visual experience.
