MindArk is very excited to announce that Virtual Tycoon, the very first Entropia Universe mobile application, has been released on the Google Play app store today.

Virtual Tycoon gives players full access to the Construction system, the Auction system, Storage, Accounting, Avatar Skills and Professions, and Hall of Fame information. One of the most exciting features is the ability to craft and auction items from your Android mobile device. With full access to storage and all the details of the items contained therein, colonists always know what they have to sell and what they need. This amazing overview includes all blueprints, and even has a helpful sorting functionality to assist players in finding the blueprints most suitable to craft at the moment.

"We are in a world where people are constantly on the go and they always have mobile devices with them," said David Simmonds, CEO of MindArk. “Since Entropia Universe is non-stop as well, players need access to their characters and accounts whenever and wherever. In short, this is the first step in making the Entropia Universe experience available when away from the computer.”

To download Virtual Tycoon directly, visit the Google Play App store on your Android mobile device at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mindark.eu.virtualtycoon

The Apple iOS version of Virtual Tycoon will also be released very soon, stay tuned!

If this can be used to also chat with people on friends list or in chat channels around your avatar then a lot of people will log in just to chat.

If when using this you can't chat then there will be a lot of Zombie avatars blocking auction houses.:dunce:

You don't need to search for it there, link in the first post:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mindark.eu.virtualtycoon
Yeah, I know. But the "install" link won't work for me. Probably because I run hacked crap. :) But normally anything on play.google.com can be found in the Play Store app.

Edit: Even if you search Virtual Tycoon on play.google.com, you still get no results. I'm going to try going to this post on my mobile browser and see if I can click through the link that way.

2nd edit: Okay, that worked. But it would be good to be able to search for it.

Just downloaded it and I love it! :yay:
Just means I have to carry the damn Gold card reader everywhere..

Now only if they could add chatting the packet would be perfect, I like the way you can check on auction house on the go and it all works very, very smoothly.

Two questions:
1) Does it support "double login"? (In other words could you Hunting/Mining in game and login from Android at the same time, Crafting/Browsing Auction?
2) If answer to first question - yes, maybe it's finally time to release ingame "communcator" that will allow doing same, that will not required wasting time to break run, to make Bid or Craft etc. And will have one unified interface (and it would be good replacement for countless numbers of BP's books).

P.S. Chat must have IMHO, hope it will be added soon.

OK, installed on my Xoom but it doesn't respect the orientation of the tablet. I tend to use it upside down because of it's external case and this forces it to single orientation.

Nice to see a text based storage, we just need it in game though ;) but it also needs the TT value of the individual items and stacks to be displayed. At the moment on L and repairable items you get a bar graph of the current TT/Max tt rather than the ped value.

The only other issue is the name, if it's for EU then shouldn't that be in the name. Virtual Tycoon sounds like one of many other free games trying not to look like monopoly.
