    Virtual Reality Public Transport IPO - Discussion

    The VR Public Transport IPO is conceived as the Vehicle to interconnect Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Worlds, MMO's, Games, Apps and experiences, while also generating revenue to underwrite a large variety of gamified VR Jobs.

    The funding of the VR Public Transport IPO will be positioned as a widely accessible global Virtual Reality investment opportunity, that will provide as many people as possible with the opportunity to invest in core infrastructure that will support the expansion of VR across multiple platfroms. In addition to providing an investment opportunity, it will also serve to provide non MMO Gamers or VR users with a means to participate in a Real Cash Economy Virtual Universe, without needing to create an avatar, thereby bringing Real cash simulated economics and gameplay to the widest possible audience.

    The goal of The VR Public Transport IPO is to secure significant investment from outside Entropia Universe to fund the process of interconnecting Virtual Reality via Teleportation so that either avatars, items, skills or virtual currency can become interoperable, which will in turn fuel exponential growth of monetized avatar skill development and truly solidify virtual and augmented worlds as a new frontier for users, creating immense investment and job opportunities for the future.

    The initial announcement of the Virtual Reality Public Transport IPO was geared toward the general public and not specifically to the existing users of the Teleportation system in Entropia Universe. As a result, the monetization of the system is being viewed by many as a tax added to the current cost of gameplay in entropia Universe as opposed to a means to stimulate the exsiting economy and provide unlimited funding potential for the growth of the platform, while also providing an exciting new investment, gameplay and job opportunities for current users.

    This thread is for the discussion of the VR Public Transport IPO.

    Can you advise what other VR Games are we trying to work with? Do any of them have an RCE?

    Seen as a tax on Entropia Universe?!?!... of course it would be, I'm fairly sure using a teleporter in say.. a bethesda game, or other MMO's don't require real income to activate. Just how do you plan to interconnect various company's games to a teleport system? Would one company competing with another company actually pay to store info of the competing company on servers for their avatars? Even further, is this suggesting I could hop from EU to another game and have my armor, weapons, tools and such? wouldn't the other game need to have all of that coded and accepted into the system? If its just hopping from game to game, and If someone wanted to switch over from game to game... Who really had an issue with logging out of one and into another?

    I wonder why you would choose as a president to make your first action one that upsets so many people? There are dozens of possiblities to increase income for both MA and yourself that will actually be liked by the player base.
    Why not investigate and promote that instead?


    Sure you might get some internet articles about this stuff, but as far as i can tell there is no intrest for both the presidency and this crazy idea you have? Why not focus on EU if your the EU president, or why not leave EU alone when your the president of all of virtual reality?

    First thing needed for connecting 2 different games is agreement between the owners to do this.
    This would give us access to the technical specs needed to create the link between them (after solving gazillion related problems).

    There is no such agreements, otherwise we would already have huge news about that. Right?
    If you never get any agreements the whole project will die.
    Yet you're already advertising investment opportunities for it.

    Let's first collect the money? We can add the placeholder for the stable.. er I mean, inter-game TP, later?
    How MA is that?

    Dear Neverdie,

    You are a charismatic person and are very good with words. You manage to get people's attention and hype them. The people that react to emotional arguments will always follow you.
    However, there are some who do not react to emotional arguments but to rational ones. These are the ones you need to win, me being one of them.

    Here is my take on your statement:

    The VR Public Transport IPO is conceived as the Vehicle to interconnect Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Worlds, MMO's, Games, Apps and experiences, while also generating revenue to underwrite a large variety of gamified VR Jobs.
    First of all apps and experiences must also me related to gaming. It makes no sense otherwise like teleporting to word to write a document or to calendar to set a meeting. I don't see this happening in the near future. Back to gaming, why would a developer/publisher be willing to allow a person that was once hooked on he's platform/service to easily move to another provider and take with him virtual currency? From a business point of view, isn't it better to hook a customer, make him buy some virtual currency and when he's done playing (i believe 6 month is the expected player retention for mobile games), the currency unused remains.

    In your proposed case when the player moves, he takes away the currency. That means that in RL, the old service provider must transfer to the new provider the equivalent in RL money of the virtual currency being transferred.

    The funding of the VR Public Transport IPO will be positioned as a widely accessible global Virtual Reality investment opportunity, that will provide as many people as possible with the opportunity to invest in core infrastructure that will support the expansion of VR across multiple platforms.
    As Faith mentioned, agreements and NDAs (Non Disclosure Agreements) must be signed between entities before information is being transferred. After that, a mediation layer (platform) must be established between each game/platform. This is because different games have different technical and logical architecture. In order for me to move from Call of Duty to Battlefield for example, even thou both are same gender, a platform must translate all my avatar related stuff from CoD "language" to Battlefield "language".

    The initial announcement of the Virtual Reality Public Transport IPO was geared toward the general public and not specifically to the existing users of the Teleportation system in Entropia Universe. As a result, the monetization of the system is being viewed by many as a tax added to the current cost of gameplay in entropia Universe as opposed to a means to stimulate the exsiting economy and provide unlimited funding potential for the growth of the platform, while also providing an exciting new investment, gameplay and job opportunities for current users.
    If this IPO was geared toward travel between planets in EU, this would have been a different story with a different reaction from the community.

    However, as it is presented now, i see it as a dream of yours that will deliver in the end only a TP TAX for EU community.

    If you want to prove me wrong, and i think the community will also be interested in this, please state at least ONE company/publisher outside of EU platform, that is interested in integrating with us at the level you describe. By that i mean that will be able to teleport with my avatar against a 1 ped fee to the other game.
    (The casino does not count since they acquired the rights to use EU platform in their development.)


    Cheers,
    Rodian

    Very little out there has RCE at this time, but I think this business model will be the wave of the future, even if only on a small level for most games... Currently players spend billions on Micro-transactions and get nothing back... The TP system can be a device for introducing rewards to all kinds of games.. Only some may actually include your avatar hoping back and forward.

    As I build traction for my plan outside of Entropia Universe, then that will help in partnering with existing games, but also it might be the next wave of worlds and games that are more important and realistic to partner with.
