ROCKTropia is about to have an overhaul, and there are highly skilled semi-benevolent types ready to be around on patch day. Their forum is pretty swish and is nowhere near as disenfranchising as Planet Calypso Forum where the majority of the "main-stay" players that have been there for years take no greater pleasure than getting the guy that's at the start of his/her EU career frustrated.

PCF is one of the biggest troll-fests I've seen in over 10 years of gamin :)

Also, EU might be the high risk casino people make it out to be, but yesterday I got bored and bought 660ped of materials for Simple 1 plastic spring at level 9 crafter, 716 or so rolls @ 90pec per roll every 10 secs.  I ended up with 6 in the 10-35ped range, 2 @ 40-48 and an 8xped global all on Quantity. This doesn't happen at the start of your time in EU so if you are new and start getting buyers remorse or frustrated about the returns slow down and focus on skills. I was expecting 66% return or 240ped loss in exchange for some excitement, ended up 108ped at tt vs mats+MU. Lost 50ped on Basic Coils trying to satisfy a buy order though -.- back to waiting :P 

But check out the ROCKTropia dot com forum! Also, if you are looking for a Society try to find and apply for Motorhead Army.

I am just visiting RT and love it here.
Already met a general of Motorhead Army and also some Motorheads :)

First time I came there, I was like "WTF...?" and I am glad I wasn't born there, not sure if I would handle it and if I would keep playing it more then a week, but as a place to visit when I already know how Calypso looks it is really great. 

Do you have  any tips for newbies? I am stuck there until Sunday/Monday (because sociaty mates are visiting their family and we travel together) and I already managed to lose 60 PEDs there (now I have 1) and I am not very sure how to get them back. Sweating doesn't look like the correct way for RT. 

I am farming the Robot Girls near Lagoone and some thugs, but I have no idea what to do more. Without PEDs etc :)) I have 10 records to sell but no buyer :)

Or it doesn't have to be even newbie tip, just some heads up what to explore before leaving :)

And about crafting - I just did the mission on Mornia, I was very lucky to do it with the resources I get, so now I have mentoring achievment and I know how it looks, but not going this way for some time.

As you said, it can be dangerous and I think the crafting is one of most dangerous ways to go in EU.

I am not going to deposit (because I like pay for games, but digital in-games items... It just seems like weird cheating to me, even if I know the game is based on it. And also I don't have good experiences with casinos:)), and even when I see the PEDs I earned here and with luck in game it hurts!! Crafting seems like biiig wasting :)

(Mostly when you lose your stuffs when DC. I have DC kind of often).

Hope you can recoup some of your losses. But how did you lose 60 peds in such a short time? Hunted something too big?Confused
 
Anyway tips? The first thing that comes to mind is collecting stuff for peds. 
-Go to the Beer Garden (126464,92245,337) and pick up beer kegs. They spawn like oil, and even though it is pvp, it usually is quiet there.
-Or go to the oil rigl. Same deal: also pvp, but most of time quiet enough. Just be careful: there are barrels around that can explode when shot, or walked into.
I experienced both several times.Wink

Oh, and the beer can also be used to get a wild axe:
Mission: The bar Fly
Talk to Alia in the bar in New Harlem, and bring her 30 kegs 
reward: 1 Road Crew Axe (L) 1 ped tt

There is also a mission from the guy at the pawnshop in New Harlem to bring him crude oil, with as reward a Hoverboard Crapster Edition (L). But I don't have the position of the oil rig.
The hoverboard you receive will probably be very low in TT (15 ped full tt), but it's such a cool vehicle to drive. You're essentially flying on a skateboard!Big smile Really fun to do, and surprisingly easy to drive. Even a miserable driver/pilot like me could manage the hoverboard without crashing into anything.
 
It probably wont give as much peds as cf tasks, but still: it's basically picking up free pecs off the floor. And with a whole lot less competition than on Caly. At least when I was there, I saw maximum one other person there. So perfect for a person who is low on peds.

Ah, and of course you already did all 'The Thing' missions, right? There's a separate thread on this forum about it. 

Good luck, and when you leave RT, it might be best to leave storage empty. See the overhaul mentioned in the OP. 
Or stick around to see what it all is about. Wink


Edit: Forgot to put in the link to RT forum that was asked for. 
Well to be honest, I don't really know which thread the OP is talking about. So I took one that talks about the new VU too. Hopefully it gets you at least on the right track.

Thank you very much :)

I hunted only Thugs and then those girls near lagoon for records and other things with good MU.
To be honest I have no idea where I lost all those PEDs. I have almost feeling that someone stealing them when I am off :)
I knew I should have left something in my Caly storage, but I did not expect such lost at all. 

This guide for RT would deserve it is own thread. I completly forgot on that oil rig! Need to get there asap, since I am even out of fuel... Horrible trip for me, but I really like RT and love Mornia! Can't wait to get back there and finish those 500 yogs! 
I hope my situation will get better on Cyrene though :))

It is truth with less competition, that is probably the reason only 1 piece is spawned and not 40-60 as on Caly :) 

And when we are on those tips, do you think it is worthy to buy a lot of FAP from the THING event? 
I am probably going to do it, since 9 peds for the classic FAP is sooo much. The .50 doesn't last long, but heal the same.

Even though on Caly there is a lot higher spawn; that doesn't help one bit when you die by pk. 
So even a spawn of one at the time is nice, because you are alive to pick it up. Wink

I don't think it's a good investment to buy the faps from The Thing, at least not for trade. 
If you plan on using them yourself, it might be helpful yeah. 
But for trade, the S.I. Heart from Cyrene, and the Herb Box from Ancient Greece are a better choice. They are the most eco, and are very much in demand on the market.

Ah, I wrote a whole part about Cyrene, but deleted it, since this is a tread about RockTropia.
Have to stay on topic somehow. Oops, focus!

I will be honest, i used to love RT but have been very disgusted with it lately.  Between the patch really screwing the place and the terrible returns on mining / hunting for a few MONTHS i really lost interest in it.


I sure hope they give it a makeover because seriously, a few 'old timers' is not going to keep that rock from dying off like that other one did.  Too many people are tired of the 'same ole' of rocktopia.

Now onto some of the better stuff there.
Sweating I find is pretty much the best place to do it,  goto studio gate south, there typically are groups there sweating and it's very easy.  Go after haters.

You can hunt the mobs there pretty easily as well and move out into the street a bit when you want something a bit bigger.   Again, loot been totally crap on them for a while it seems but once in a very rare while you might get something nice.

Get the police mission too, the start of it is with the cop at the city of dreams teleport.  Once it is completed it opens up some other repeatable missions for you that can give you some decent items to sell, ie rock gold coins.

Mining can be decent on the VERY rare occasions it is.  Just a quick hint, do a teleport run, beam somewhere, drop a mining charge, maybe another if it seems promising, hop to next location etc.  It's not the best 'method' of mining but isn't too bad for a starter.

I am on rock on and off.  Now that I am a pay rep I spend time on ark as well.   When I am there feel free to look me up and I can show you some stuff to do there.

Thank you, Sluggo, I hope I will be on Cyrene at Monday top.

The loosing PEDs on RT is really ugly, didn't see that comming at all, had no idea it is design fault.

Today I read there should be some apokalypse soon, but did not paid too much attention to it, so I hope they will re-do it, so I could return later and get my PEDs back! :)

I will check the sweating place, and mining too, have few last probes, so I could get accidentaly lucky for one time :)
(With my finder everything is lucky!:))

Mmmm, I can't find the police mission. Any idea if I have to complete anything before?
Or what is the NPC called? Sometimes there are bugged invisible ? !, so I maybe just misslooking it.

Got it, it was really invisible !

The apololypse is the thing going away I am pretty sure.

Being out of ped you don't want to hear this I am sure but,  if you can, get a few of those 'thing' rifles and some ammo while you can.  They are very cheap to fire and are Excellent guns for pulling mobs to you from a distance.

That forum works in my preferred method, there are groups and Instant messages :) but that info is in the Group ROCKtropian Economic Jumpstart Committee, apply to join :)

@Kombinacka - it's all pretty much been answered since, but at level 30 Laser Pistoleer and level 27 BLP I was getting consistently good 99% average TT return on Motorhead Royalty (even in Jarhead L)

Werewolves and Vampires are a low cost alternative, but not sure how their loot swings vary as they have a range of level 3-14, instead of a flat 15-17 on Motorhead.

I would have though that standing in CND Lagoon would have identified at least 1 buyer of ROCKTropian Records, and the vixen gears have a buy order that should top up all your hunts on the Vixen SHY.

Have never been to the Rock. Dig motorhead's music just not so sure about the vampires and zombies. Feels like a bit of a genre jump to me.

Would still like to check it out at some point.

Rock is cool, and fun as hell if you enjoy flying or driving the highways around the towns. I love the tps in Rock as they look sweet with phones, movie theaters, and whatnot. I also like the fact that you can go and Hunt the thing from any tp.
