Ah, thank you.
Converse with fellow players
Last year, a friend of mines birthday was approaching and as thanks for them helping me get into PSO2 I wanted to get them one of those gifts you can leave in someones quarters.
He said he really wanted an "Oran sticker" which from all the equipment and cosmetics in the game seems weird to ask for such a tiny thing... That's when I found out about Ragol Memories and had no idea how to get them. So I couldn't get my friend the one thing he wanted. It made me wonder what's the point of the Memory Exchange Shop if hardly anyone has memories for it.
I think you can get Ragol Memories by playing the AC tickets but not only does that suck for F2Pers but luck of the draw as well, I think.
@LazerRay I nearly finished it. As for Halpha being a mish-mash of PSO2 planets I'll with-hold that theory until further evident. Naverius was once a forest-dominant planet but oceans are still evident from pictures of the planet. And like most planets may have a volcanic core so volcanoes could of been possible. The thousand-year gap may have had colonies terra-forming Naverius, perhaps inadvertedly by deforestation and mining. If Lillipans show up then their ancestors were maybe colonials but doubt they be the sort to want to leave their world.
Still there's yet confirmation Halpha is Naverius so it's just a theory for now.
@Mystic-Monkey you have a very good theory and I have a theory about the seemingly man made sections of the planet, I think that sometime during the millennium that passed between the end of pso2 and the beginning of ngs one or more of the Oracle ships either landed or crashed on the planet and became partially buried over time
My guess is that it's photoner tech... but it does lack sense why the people of Central City seem to lack interest in it or why it wasn't that much evident on Naverius. I do have theories on why it isn't (simply that the forest of Naverius has no exposed ground of it) but other than that I still stand by my theory.
However, exploring east of Aelios to the inaccessable regions I noticed Vanford Lab Ruins and beyond what appears to be a desert. The thought that Halpha to be a fusion of Navarius, Lillipa and Wopal crossed my mind which would fit with my "The Alpha and the Omega" theory, but I never mentioned this Alpha and Omega theory because I figured it's off-topic and lack basis. But If the desert region turns out to have Lillipans and industrial ruins then it may support my Alpha and Omega theory and will make new thread on it.
I've yet to finish Episode 6 so my thoughts on what Halpha is may change.
I don't think so, the planet seems to be man made with all the mechanical parts within it.
Parts of the planet "appear" to be man made but not all of it. After all the tundra and forest of Naverius in PSO2 was mostly over ground while in PSO2:NG there is only some bare tech, some of it appearing through a layer of rock.. Some think it's an ARKS ship buried under Aelio but I think it's photoners tech which even thousands of years a go still regarded ancient.
In PSO2 while we got to explore "planets", we really just explored small regions of these planets so the geography of some areas maybe different to some. I believe the forest, tundra and ruins of Naverius are near Aelio but an inaccessable region... though it would be cool if the PSO2 area maps for forest, tundra and ruins were brought over to Halpha and aged a thousand years.
The Formers might have just been brought over when the planet was made, since we don't know what is in the three other main sections yet.
I believe that two of these regions will support my theory. The north region obviously looks like Naverius tundra and we may get another region based on the ruins.
This is probably already suggested but... how about the Menacer as a camo for Assault Rifle or Launcher? Maybe a multi-type camo where it turns twin machineguns into the front half of the Menacer. Given the design of the Menacer I believe it will fit well with PSO2's sci-fi aesthetic. As far as I'm aware such a camo is not in the game and would like one.
I did thought of how such guns as the Light Phaser and the Virtua Gun could be made into camo but... I don't really imagine these guns as the twin machineguns sort, and usually the Master System or Sega Saturn came with one of these light guns than two. Maybe they could be gunblade camo's givewn the gunblade is the only single-hand gun in the game but without something to serve as a blade I can't see it happening.
Honestly, would settle for just the option to take off Basewear. PSO2 with a T-rating yet there are players going around with scandalous attire that it makes me wonder why PSO2 hasn't ripped the band-aid off yet... quite literally, there's inner-wear that's nothing but band-aids.
So what's the point of making Basewear unremovable if you can't view innerwear or that other players go around 15% covered?
I'm probably not the only one who has this theory/assumption but to me it's pretty heavy evident that Halpha is actually planet Naverius.
The biggest clue is the fact that Sylvants are native to Aelio. It could be possible that the Sylvants were an introduced organism to the planet at some point in ARKS thousand-year gap but given how ARKS treat sylvants in PSO2 I doubt they would go to the effort to preserve hostile species.
The second clue is that beyond North Aelio appears to be a polar region which doesn't make sense given the climate temperatures and weather of the rest of Aelio. In PSO2 it's been noticed the Tundra region on Naverius baffles most ARKS ops in comparison to the Forest region. The Alphana Wetlands have ruins that also bare resemblence to the sunken Ruins of Naverius which further makes me curious of Halpha's history.
Some would perhaps ask "If Halpha is actually Naverius, why can't I access the PSO2 areas?", well for all we know those areas could be on the other side of the planet and that they may have changed after a thousand years. In PSO2 we only explored small regions of the entire planet so they could be on the other side of the world. It's like how Earth is depicted in PSO2 with just parts of Tokyo and Las Vegas.
So all in all, my guess is somewhen during the thousand-year gap, ARKS decided to colonize Naverius and over the faded history the planet was renamed Halpha.
