    is it better to fight on and get maybe get 1000s more civilans killed, more cities destoyed and still loose or give up?

    I mean, what's point to go on figthing if you know you will loose and no one will come and help you? It would be a difference if you know maybe Nato would come with help ("No fly zone" or troops).

    The best way is to say to Ukraine to give up.... honestly. Maybe sound harsh, but In the long run they will not have a chance to win against russia. So when they reach the point it clear they will be military defeated the world should say "Let's end this and give up". It's no point to go on...

    I really don't like this punishment of ordinary citizen. It's bit funny collective punishment suddenly seams okay around the world. The best must be Lego stopping it's business to Russia. Like they need to punish the evil russian children ......

    VU updates

    Yeah, read the Unreal Engine 5 news, sounds interesting, but I guess that is maybe two years away. I was more thinking on updates connected to the gaming mechanism, new features and development of systems. New stuff from the planet partners always come out a regular pace, but are more or less...

    Info: MindArk Annual Report 2020

    A bit impressed with the increase in revenue and profit. Still would preferd they had a bigger share of the unconsumed ped holdings as debt and less revenue. Maybe 50 % instead of just 33 %. They have a good cashflow now, so they should have muscles to improve the concepts. If not the pre-Covid...

    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.

    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?

    Mindark Annual Report 2019

    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...

    6/44 for is a "normal" ratio for the gaming industry, it's not a huge secret that gaming and computers have been mainly a men business, even if it have change a lot the last ten years or so. But change take time.

    As I mentioned earlier 1/3 of all unconsumed tt/peds are now in the balance sheet as an liability, it's the item called "Avsättningar för oförbrukade användarmedel 29 459 145", so it's not a fixed assets. But they have the value of EU plattform as a fixed assets now, "Entropia Platform och...

    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.
