nDreams latest news letter is out and with it comes a lot of info for the upcoming aurora update.
Whats New?It’s been a little while since Aurora’s last update but that hasn’t been down to sheer laziness though! With Blueprint: Home, F.U.B.A.R and other projects going on there has been a lot to do here at nDreams. There have been a couple of additions to Aurora 1.6 as well as some movement of existing Aurora favourites so watch the video below to get a quick overview of where you want to head when you set foot in Aurora.Blimps
Those little things flying high above Aurora, those are Blimps and for the first time you can take to the skies of Aurora with your friends. Blimps see’s you playing a game of tag with 32 people. When you first play Blimps you are given a free blimp but you are able to purchase new blimps with different designs and better manoeuvrability to help you avoid being tagged! If you do purchase a new blimp you will be rewarded with Aurora XP as well to help you level up and reach Level 100 and obtain the Aurora Champion Apartment.
The great thing about Blimps is that this is just the start. We want to hear from you and allow our community to help shape how Blimps evolves over time. We are looking for you to feedback with what you think should be next for Blimps. You can feedback via Twitter, Facebook or by replying to this e-mail.Layout
The most noticeable thing about Aurora 1.6 is the removal of dedicated islands for both Los Penguini Brothers and Espionage 9. These two have been brought together on one island along with the Blueprint: Home table. Replacing the Espionage 9 island we have a dedicated island to another nDreams game F.U.B.A.R which includes a relocator that will take you directly into F.U.B.A.R when it is released. The Collect-o-Rama is bidding farewell, so if you want to obtain the limited edition rewards I would make sure you finish the objectives sooner rather than later.Future Updates
We are keen to keep the wait down for the next iteration of Aurora and will be keeping you up to date with the progress on 1.7. A little hint of what possibly could make it into the next update how about some new trap-o-matic rewards? Or maybe just maybe, the chance to smash beyond level 100…

Hmm, I see where FUBAR, los penguin Bros and Espionage 9 are, and even where the Blimps pad is. The Trap-o-matic doesn't seem to have moved much though it's now in a little paddock of its own and the Orb Runner hasn't moved.
Big question though; Where's the Xi museum island gone, and what's with the Japanese inspired mansion/blocks of grey where it was?

Jesus H Christ - No! Just, no! It's asking a LOT for people to get to level 100 to start with but going beyond that is just ridiculous in my opinion considering the amount of XP needed to level up when you get that high.
Apart from that though - I like the rest of the new stuff!
