Is there any future plan to make Entropia Universe for Mobile phones .

If you look at Old School Runescape. That got another 60k players to average player count. its been downloaded 1m times. great success! I think mobile would be good for EU in the short term :yup:

ya MA still doesnt know how big they could be. they need an in house visionary. they do try to bite off more than they can chew but if they had a good long vision they would see the possibilities. there are so many unfilled positions in the dev team that are probably all done with one person. divide up the idea developing into a team. and get a great systems analyst.

one of my wishes has always been to utilize the smartphone in the game. as a tool. hard to explain, really, but imagine a driving game with your smartphone mounted above your monitor acting as a rear view mirror. or a quick connect wiki search that allows, via the smartphone camera and screen to supply instant info. that subject is augmented reality. (wtf i'm already defending my idea from that troll). AI, AR and VR are magic words that sets trolls trolling. ffs.

the smartphone app they got now is pretty lamish. but the potential is wowish to awesomer. invisible qrcodes could make this work.

To whom do you need to defend your idea ? Who attacked it? only you and me here so far , and i didnt say anything bad about it.... and i am far away of beeing a troll...

I would also like to see some expansion options for playing eu on phone too...

Within a ten-year period, the moblie sector has gone from being the smallest gaming segment to the largest. In fact, it is estimated that by the year 2021 the mobile gaming sector will be worth close to $100 billion in annual revenues.
Just this year growth is over 35% compared to 2018. so making Eu on mobile phone whoud be great idea :wise:

Please don't suggest something that MA can never deliver- we saw it already. Even if they would get it done, by the time it will happen the platform would be dead...

Also, apple would never allow real cash casinos to their market- as it is the case with virtual tycoon app. So it would be at least 50% market loss

He means me. He has a tendency to spout off random chains of buzzwords that don't make any sense in the given context and I called him out on it since it's my job to know what those things actually mean. Don't worry, we have a loving relationship. He kinda reminds me of my product manager, tbh. ;)

You do you, my dude. I respect your energy and enthusiasm. :hug:



On another note, it's time for me to speak about something I don't really know anything about: economics. Everyone here is always wanting more players more players. What would that actually do to the economy? Wouldn't that mean that what little MU is left in loot would go to shit due to oversupply? Do y'all think demand for crafted goods would somehow hit a threshold and bring the MU up? In my mind if we flipped a switch and had 1000x more players tomorrow, pretty much everything would be 101% in no time. School me.

There is only one problem!
You cant just compile EU, or any other game to mobile, and it will run. It needs to recreate all Textures and materials, all lightning and alot other stuff too. This is like developing EU from start. If they do so, then they have 2 different Applications to support, code and handle. Not that this is not possible, but it would need a lot of workhours and manpower to get there. Also later it would need more workers to handle 2 different systems.

Play EU trought streaming is also a bad idea, about the lag you would get, especial in PVP. The latency is big problem in streaming games. Maybe if we all get 5G, it would be better for streaming.

I more like, if MA just focus on one thing, but that with 100% quality and bugfree :)

I completely agree with you. The way these systems work in EU wouldnt handle even 50k active players. Economy in EU is worse than Zimbabwe... Only baby steps were taken in the right direction...

More n00bs = more folks willing to overpay on crap because they don't understand different yet... happens a few times in past after things like c.n.d make money back 100%, same with treasure island, etc.. old scammers hope to see history repeat (it won't)

sure they can sell new deeds for the mobile game and everyone will make $ on them and it wil be the biggest thing in the.... oh wait nevermind :)

maybe buy a new sever for the current game and forget expansion as most people would just laugh at this game anyway - I can just picture the chat:

"I pay how much for what and i lose it how fast???" "why is that one guys name always poping up on screen?"
