User Interface Update Postponed

Due to changing priorities related to the development of the Unreal Engine 5 client, Mindark has determined that it is not practical to implement the previously-announced User Interface update in 2021.

The process of upgrading the current CryEngine 2 client User Interface has been taking a lot of resources and is somewhat risky with regard to the technical aspects, given the complexity of the old UI framework. The decision therefore has been made to focus on implementing significant UI improvements in Unreal Engine 5 instead.

The efforts made thus far on the UI upgrade project have provided many insights and highlighted areas for improvement, which will of course help guide our efforts in crafting the user interface for the Unreal Engine 5 client.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Estate Deeds Acquired in Record Time

Twenty-two minutes. That’s how long it took for all 800,000 deeds of New Treasure Island to be snapped up by eager Entropia Universe participants. The fortunate deed holders will now share in the revenue generated by activity on New Treasure Island, one of the most popular hunting destinations within the vast metaverse of Entropia Universe.

 

New Treasure Island deeds were first listed on the Entropia Exchange on December 1, 2021 at 11:00 UTC, at a price of 10 PED (1 USD) per deed. Within just over twenty minutes, the record-breaking deed offering was fully subscribed.

Our goal is to incorporate as many of those suggestions as possible into the User Interface update. However, because the scope of the project has expanded significantly, it is not feasible to get that update implemented in time for the summer Version Update deadline.

Therefore, the decision has been made to postpone the User Interface up...
