Entropia Universe is the largest Real Cash Economy Massively Multiplayer Online Game in the world, offering players the ability to participate in a unique virtual world where they have no monthly costs.

Planet Calypso announced a vast update that encompasses changes to their loot system, missions, and most importantly their crafting.  Players will find their ability to create items has been supercharged through a new interface making the process faster and easier than ever. 

A completely new and improved user interface for crafting will be implemented in Entropia Universe Version Update 12.8, which will dramatically streamline the process of constructing items. The new interface automatically scans the avatar inventory and storage for blueprints, resources and materials, allowing items to be constructed without the need to dig through a player's inventory.  Other exciting features of this new interface include the ability to sell crafted items directly to the Trade Terminal, along with a detailed log of each crafting run. Handy, quick access to auction buy and sell orders are also included.  Additionally the Loot System has seen major improvements in this first phase of a comprehensive overhaul. This overhaul will result in much more interesting and balanced loots for creatures of every level including newly designed items waiting to be discovered. Mission balancing has also been affected with a new Attribute Token system giving partners the ability to award fractional attribute rewards for easier missions, and also allowing participants to decide when to apply earned attribute rewards to their avatar.

Planet Calypso is part of the largest Massively Multiplayer Online Real Cash Economy (MMORCE) game in the world, over $400 million USD per year in user-to-user transactions, where players have no monthly costs, but deposit and withdraw real funds for their adventures in this science-fiction game.
