Today we proudly present the new planet ROCKtropia! That means that currently two planetary systems are available to you, consisting of two planets, one asteroid and one space station; ROCKtropia, Planet Calypso, Club NEVERDIE and Crystal Palace.
Entropia Universe is growing and ROCKtropia is set to be the first of many new and different planets that will be forming Entropia Universe. “Diversity is as important in the virtual world as it is in the real world,” said MindArk founder and CEO Jan Welter Timkrans. “We are thrilled to see the excitement generated by ROCKtropia and the other planets coming online soon.”
Space travel is possible both between and within planetary systems. For example, you can travel directly between Crystal Palace and ROCKtropia or, within a planetary system, between Crystal Palace and Planet Calypso.
Tip! When traveling through space make sure to pack the items you want to bring in your carried Inventory. Storage facilities are specific for the planet (space station, etc.) you are currently at, meaning that if you store items on one planet and travel to another one, you cannot access those items at your new destination.
