    The PED-USD connection - will it last?

    Well MA have their debts to players in PED/USD so I guess they should be winners if the dollar got cheaper :silly2::silly2: But they would loosers in the long run if players don't compesate the cheaper dollar with spending more of it.

    Change Calypso Space Port In to Athena (read details)

    I'm a bit confused, don't you enter from space just above to city and can land where you want after that? Or have they change something since I last was landing on the planet?

    The core business is doing okey with an operating profit around 4,5 MSEK, it's their side businesses that they are loosing money on. A lot of cost for write-downs on the values of Compet and receivables conected to their subsidary "Green Fund Finance", never heard about that before, not sure...

    Determinants of supply and demand, economic activity in current state of market and how to improve them.

    I have said it before, the big problem is that to creat a bigger demand we need more decay on everything. Cloth, vehicles and simliar items should decay more. Items should also have "time decay", decaying not only based on how much you use an item but also on the age of the item. Now you can buy...

    Fix space logout exploit

    I have said it before, it's the lack of decay that is the big problem. Items need to have a shorter life time to increase the demand on crafting and the demand in general.

    Mindark Annual report 2018

    Ugly? Every girl and woman in Sweden can get the same education and choice what they want to work with. But they don't want to work with game design. It will change in the future because of mobile gaming is big today and more girls playes games on mobiles compared to girls that played on...

    Mindark Annual report 2018

    At last they put the unconsumed peds as a liability in the balance sheet, as they should have done from the start, but only 1/3 of it and at the same time write up the value of the EU platform, because they would not have any equtiy left if the did not :silly2: Arround 12% of the sales comes...

    Entropia Universe 15.16.0 Release Notes

    I was pretty sure the loot proffesions would only affect the type of loot you got, not the tt value you got. Don't think it's a good thing if it's the value that increase, will have bad effect for new players.

    NEWS: Cryptocurrency. It's coming faster than you think.

    It because it this bitcoin never will be really usefull as a "currency" or payment method. Sure if one or more contries would officially fully support a crypto currency as a offical payment method and currency, the transaction cost of it was low and efficient and the system was under control of...

    NEWS: Cryptocurrency. It's coming faster than you think.

    How do you define "winning"? :silly2: It's obvious to me the hype of bitcoin and similar "cryptocurrencies" it's on it's way to die. It will not go away today, but I would be suprised if the intrest was at the same level a year from now. It's also obvious bitcoin is totally worthless as a...

    Avatar's changing hands.... who are you actually dealing with?

    Can't remeber I have ever showed any copy of any ID. Problem is that you can buy an avatar, make money with it, transfer the money to your real avatar and withdraw the money from that one. But if you do a "yearly" check that an avatar is still controlled by the orginal creator and owner it will...

    Avatar's changing hands.... who are you actually dealing with?

    Could they not just have a 10$ yearly fee that must be payed from a card in the of the orginal owner and if not payed the avatar is locked? The avatar could get the "fee" in peds so it would not be a real fee, just a control function. And yes, still me playing my orginal avatar, even if I...

    Also, the economic system in EU is a bit wrong in my opinion. To work better it would need a bit more decay and consumting on crafted items. But players don't want that so in that regard it's also the players fault :silly2:

    Future of $ withdrawals

    The difference between the amount of PEDs the players have and the amount of money/capital Mindark have been growing the last couple of years. If MA plans to go on with EU for many years to come they will not be able to keep the fixed 10PED=1USD without doing anything about it. I guess...
