Notice ARX and Frontier Points Conversion

I wonder if the free 400 weekly ARX have to be spent weekly(probably not enough to buy anything so we have to top up with real £££) and if not spent do we lose them or does it just keep rolling over
Was stated in the stream that ARX does not decay.
 
Console will go from this current
142848

Yes any purchase of 1000 at a time is still CHEAPER than PC players have to play for things, Even now with the platforms cut included, if you purchase 1000 points you get a discount over the PC users prices... but you have to pre pay that at a time for console store to be Cheaper than PC store...

So here a mock up of this next week...
Mock up.png

As a conversion rate has been announce Nothing but the numbers actualy had to change... on console there choice to change any thing else is extra...

Hello everyone,

Firstly, thank you for all of the feedback you have shared so far!

We’ve been looking through your comments and wanted to provide some clarity on some topics of discussion:

ARX PACKS

It seems there has been some confusion regarding the number of ARX in a pack, specifically if that bonus is included in or added to the displayed amount.

The bonus is always added on top of the base ARX in a pack. We've added the Total ARX included in each pack for you here:
  • 5000 ARX Pack
  • 8,400 ARX Pack (+420 bonus) = 8,820 total ARX
  • 16,800 ARX Pack (+900 bonus) = 17,700 total ARX
  • 25,500 ARX Pack (+1,300 bonus) = 26,800 total ARX
  • 51,000 ARX Pack (+3,000 bonus) = 54,000 total ARX
  • 85,000 ARX Pack (+15,000 bonus) = 100,000 total ARX

GAME EXTRA PRICES

Some of you have understandably requested some context in the form of prices of Game Extras in ARX, so that you can get an idea of your spending power, and how much your weekly free ARX will net you. We’ve provided a list of item types below and the range of prices they will cost in ARX. There are too many products to give you an exhaustive list of prices here, but to give you some idea, here are some examples of products and price ranges:

You can expect these prices for the following item types:
  • Decals - 50 to 150 ARX
  • Individual Fighter and SRV Paint Jobs - 460 to 3280 ARX
  • Individual Ship Paint Jobs - 620 to 5,520 ARX
  • Individual Bobbleheads – 2,450 to 6,450 ARX
  • COVAS – 8,850 ARX
  • Ship Kits (sold in Bundles) – 11,750 to 13,520 ARX
As mentioned by Executive Producer Adam Woods on the livestream, some Game Extras will only be available in bundles, such as Ship Kits and Holo-Me Customisation items.

EARNING ARX WHILE PLAYING

A key pillar of ARX is the ability to earn Game Extras over time through gameplay, which has previously not been possible. When earning free ARX, every Commander will be able to quickly spend them on a variety of items or save them for later purchases.
  • We don’t want to alter the way you play Elite Dangerous; we’ve looked at common in-game actions across all the main careers or activities (such as Exploration, Trade and Combat) and ensured that those actions provide a number of ARX.
  • By simply engaging with those activities, as you would normally (such as exploring a new system, hauling cargo or destroying other ships), you will receive a number of ARX.
  • Being in-game but inactive will not reward you with ARX. It isn’t based on time spent in-game, but on the actions you take.

FRONTIER STORE DOWNTIME
  • To clarify on the Frontier Store Downtime, cosmetic items and Game Extras will not be available for purchase from 16 September at 07:00 (UTC) and will go live again once the September Update has been deployed.
Please let us know if you have any questions and we’ll do our best to answer where we can!

Um...

So, I would earn no arx when pirating, as I don't destroy ships.

I guess selling the stolen goods would count as "hauling cargo" though.
 
How about let us purchase individual ship kit pieces?

How about let us purchase specific exact amounts of ARX rather than scamming us with packs of preset amounts?

How about ship kits show up in the loading screen and in your HUD rather than being relegated to external camera mode only?

Thanks!

This information is great, thanks! o7
 
But you still have to buy 5000 Arx to get a 50 arx decal.

Not from me. A fool and his money are soon parted, and I'm not a fool.
 
COVAS – 8,850 ARX
These were £5... According to the PC prices they are no longer £5 in Arx.. as you can not buy these with the £5 Arx bundle... so this is a price increase added for the item that did only cost £5...
PC users should by these NOW if they want them as after Arx change over they will increase in price...

Covas currently costs £5 on the FDevStore.
Covas will cost 8850 Arx from next Wednesday.
The 8820 Arx costs £4.99 -- 8,400 ARX Pack (+420 bonus) = 8,820 total ARX
Earn the extra 30 Arx required by playing the game for what... 40 minutes.

That is not a price increase - COVAS has actually become cheaper by a penny ;)
