Wheres the best place to sell items after a hunt? Auction house, trade terminal?
Yay. Also, I can't stop laughing at the thought of "lost his interceptor to [b]space squids[/b]." Well done Space Squids... Well done.

Holy fucking shit, they're huge. Morelike Space Slugs, amirite? Edit - AND NOTICE IT'S A YOUNG ONE! Fuck space.
[QUOTE=MadPro119;31610069]Wheres the best place to sell items after a hunt? Auction house, trade terminal?[/QUOTE] When you have finished a hunt, right click each individual item and check their base value. This can be found under the "I" icon. Once you see that, go to the market value button which is a small button with a graph on it, and check what todays mark up is on the item. anything over 100% means you can sell it for that much more at the auction. For example, if a looted item is worth 1PED and the markup is 130%, you can sell that item quickly at a trade terminal for its base value for 1PED. But if you save up more of those items over the course of a few hunts, you can sell it in bulk at the auction for 130% of its base value :smile: I hope I explained that well enough.

As soon as I'm able to deposit, I'll invest 10€ and see how this game unfolds, so far it's really interesting, and for the time being I shall sweat in the sweamps
How much is PED in USD? I want to deposit some money but i want to know what I can get first.
[QUOTE=cdr248;31610489]How much is PED in USD? I want to deposit some money but i want to know what I can get first.[/QUOTE] 10$ = 75ped.
100 PED = 10$ 75 only? dang it

But their markup is generally really big, I don't remember the exact prices but it should be something like 1PEC(cent) per sweat. Also there are places called sweating camps, where there's like a 100 people and a few high tier mobs with a lot of sweat, and all the people gather sweat from it. The mobs usually 1-2shot you, but since there's a 100ish people there, chances are low that you get hit, there also tend to be higher lvl players with healing kits who're trying to skill up their healing skills etc. It is quite difficult to get there, by running, but... I might just buy myself a vtol, so I could drive some of you FP guys over there. Also if you buy a gun, and some ammo, and go hunting your profit will average on 85%(low skill) up to 100%(average-high skill) and 110%(high end skill).
[QUOTE=gnisasas;31610702]100 PED = 10$ 75 only? dang it[/QUOTE] Thats when you buy it it takes 1/4 [editline]8th August 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Xavith;31610743] Also if you buy a gun, and some ammo, and go hunting your profit will average on 85%(low skill) up to 100%(average-high skill) and 110%(high end skill).[/QUOTE] What do you mean?
[QUOTE=MadPro119;31610750] What do you mean?[/QUOTE] If you buy a simple starter gun, and spend 1000000ped on ammo, and you go hunting, until you've spent all of that, if you would throw all your loot into the trade terminal(kind of like an npc vendor) he will buy your loot at 100% markup. You would end up with 1000000ped, but because your skill levels are low you would miss a lot, and do less damage per shot etc. You would only have around 85% of that with average skills you'd maintain a rough 90-100%. Though most likely if you start out with 100 ped you'll have an even worse rate, normally you get bad returns for a long time, then boom you hit a jackpot rocking you up quite far. Now if you would sell these items to other players the extra markup the player would pay should normally cover the losses. and if you're high tier, you'll end up making money, though this is very difficult.
I wouldn't mind playing this, but I will get put off, since it seems to be a bit complex than other MMO's. Anyone willing to start a character with me or help me?
I've tried to get into this game a couple times, but it always became a money sink because I couldn't get a good rhythm.
My in-game name is Alexandre Vermette, not sure if i wanna spend real money for in-game money, but i was wondering, what about 20$ a mouth, is that enough? And i dont wanna play alone, never.

Somebody I met in-game told me he deposits $20 a month and he treats it like a monthly fee. He told me that most of the time It's enough to tide him over till next month. But if it doesn't, he does some sweating until the next month rolls around.

Hey, I started playing this a couple of days ago. My in-game name is Nic Wyglef Bremar. So far, I have been off to a rough start, although I have only died once and it was my own stupid fault for traveling out too far. I am enjoying it though, even if it is very difficult to get into. I will probably hop back on here in a bit. Just felt like checking to see if there was a thread yet. I am hanging out in Port Atlantis near Bank Neverdie, if anyone feels like coming by.
I got accepted into that society in the OP :dance:
I spent forever downloading the whole game, and when I started it, everything was invisible except for some strange grassy landscape below. :smith:

[QUOTE=Rellow;31617314]I spent forever downloading the whole game, and when I started it, everything was invisible except for some strange grassy landscape below. :smith:[/QUOTE] What kind of graphics card are you using? Also, I've been reading even more about Entropia and I've spoken to some more seasoned players. A lot of people treat EU as a F2P, except they have to sweat for a few hours to enjoy the game. About 2 hours of sweating with a group of people will get me enough PED's to go on a single hunt, which isnt too bad. Others spend their hard earned PED's on Mining which I've heard is more profitable, but I haven't given that a go yet. The "F2P - sweating" option is kinda like having a job in real life, and then spending your hard earned money on recreational things. I guess it's pretty fair for young players and people without an income in real life. I have a job in real life though, and I like to spend some of my money on games to play on the weekend. So that is what I'm going to do - spend $20 a month on Entropia and get my PED's that way. It wouldn't make any sense for me to sweat. I'd go to work in real life, then come home and work in a game? That just isn't going to happen. So instead I'll deposit. If anyone else out there wants to give the game a go and you have $ to spare, think of depositing as a MMO monthly fee, or even the price for a game purchase :smile:
[QUOTE=Fish_poke;31617411]If you have forced AA and such turned on, shut it off.[/QUOTE] Oh crap, I must've forgotten to turn it off. Thanks.
I was actually sweating with a group of people earlier, and I can safely say it's not as tedius as some people make it out to be. Back in the old days you had to manually aim at a creature and hit the sweating button, and you had to keep your cursor focused on the creature. But now theres an "auto-tool" button. All you have to do is select a creature and click the button and the game aims and collects all the sweat for you. You can literally keep your hands off the controls for about 10 minutes at a time, so I guess most people keep the game in windowed mode as they sweat and they do other things on their computer.

Do you know where any are on Calypso?
