    virtual tycoon

    Can someone please explain to me why MA made an Entropia app and called it Virtual Tycoon? For those not in the know, they would search entropia and completely dismiss it , cause of the stupid name

    'cause they're ashamed of how badly it work?
    A man who has looked into an economics textbook and concluded that economics is dull is like a man who has read a primer on logistics and decided that the study of warfare must be dull.

    It does work pretty badly. Every time I search for an auction items, it times out. It is however not bad for crafting while sitting at work or school. But if you hit swirlies, I doubt if you will see it.

    One can only hope that VT isn't the example of how good ComPet will be... VT is a disaster.

    Search etc... really sucks on it.
    But crafting has proven to be really stable even on a poor quality 'edge' network.

    Compet is purely web based i.e. browser hosted (atleast that's the impression) I'm hoping it's html5 as flash will render it unusable on most mobile and tablet devices.

    I really like VT even it is very unstable. Purging there APP from cache is a good workaround if it is "Connecting Server".

    What I really miss at the moment is inter- planet auction function.

    I hope MA gives VT some love soon.

    I agree, VT needs serious overhaul, but if you can figure out the issues (lag out, search don't work - need to search by category, etc), it's functional. I use it all the time. It really needs is an option to purchase TT materials (probes/nanocubes) because they are needed in crafting.
    What it really needs is a functional search and a refresh button (after selling mats, PED card doesn't update unless you sell something on auction for BO, and after buying mats, you they don't show in inventory until relog).

    Actually, if you search "entropia" in google play or app store the first search result is Virtual Tycoon. So, for those that who are not too lazy to check the results, they should be able to find the app. Though i still agree that the app name is pretty stupid...
