    I think we have done 8+ flights already since servers came online?
    You know the website, just ask for a flight :P

    I haven't been yet, but there is one new enmatter that looks like pearls, but it can't be refined and no one knows what it is for yet.
    I heard the mobs were pretty cool and the scenery was great, but been at work so cant even watch the vids.

    no offense but thats not really true, I played my first 6 months without dropping a dime, and I have tons of friends who have done the same.
    Its not a kiddy game that just hands it to you on a platter though, and that is why I love it so much

    Hahaha. Well, each planet is privately owned and developed. But I feel that you do have to pay real money to get anywhere. A blueprint costs $10, crafting supplies cost $90, and then you can start crafting. Reselling on the market costs $30 and can be slow. And if you resell ores then you need to invest a lot because there are so many different ore types. I would say that newbies can run muscle oil and animal oil to the auctionhouse or provide fapping services for hunters (fapping = fast aid pack = healing) but... Unless you find a generous person or hit a global in the tutorial, then you won't get far! Some people find sweating boring. Oh - and - if you want to be a hunter, and nobody is paying you as their personal assistant dps (a.k.a. hunter for hire) then you won't make a dime.

    You can look forward to weeks of sweating (the only true free method to make profit in Entropia, without getting extremely lucky or finding someone that is very nice), just to go on a hunting or mining trip or two.

    You can get off to a nice start if you invest an initial $30 or $60 into the game, however. Just think of it as a buy-to-play game with an optional $10-15 (or $5... whatever you want to/need to put in) a month for premium service to make your game time more enjoyable.

    Personally, I want to go back to the game sometime. Last time I played I had fun with the mining for a bit, but ended up feeling like it's just a glorified slot machine. In fact, the whole game felt like that for me, at least for the most part. The only time I think you can actually get past that feeling is if you enjoy gambling a lot, or if you do one of the few things that isn't really a slot machine in disguise, such as Narfi's mothership transport services (which I think a mothership costs around $10,000? Or more. Other alternatives can be cheaper, such as a VTOL or starfighter, but those will result in hours of spamming in a hub town looking for customers).

    Like I always say in there Entropia threads, I may start playing the game once space gets a bit more love.
