Making Money Playing Video Games

     Now this one is cool.  I've been at this one for quite a while now off and on.  Well, more on than off here lately.  Entropia Universe is pretty fun.  Just the idea that everything done inside the game universe has the potential of earning money in the real world is so exciting.  For example, you could start out with nothing and spend like an entire 24 hours sweating non-stop and possibly walk away with 10$ USD.  Sure, in order to do this you would have to get really luck and find all of the right sweating spots and buyers, but the potential is amazing.  I assume that the players who admit to being able to make a profit now hunting on this game say they have 'invested' thousands of dollars to get where they are at now, but I think that they are just the games promoters.  That saying, I don't know if I'll ever get any profit out of this game, but you can be sure I'm trying.

     Sweating is pretty boring at times.  It involves standing around one of the monsters in the game and aiming this sweat extracting gun.  You just sit there mis-firing and mis-firing until finally you hit one that actually seams to take, and even then it doesn't always work.  Anyway, you can get 1-4 vibrant sweat bottles at a time like this every time it works.  At the current market values every 50 of these bottles is equal to one cent.  So, as I've calculated, 50,000 of these bottles should be enough to exchange for 10$ and cash out.  It's gonna' take awhile though, I'm about 1/5th of the way there with 10k bottles saved up so far.

     I'm sure that's not what I'm gonna' do though.  I've already committed a few bucks into this game to buy a few weapons to go hunting and it's kind of fun.  I'm still working to figure out the most efficient way to do this but it seams pretty tricky.  I don't quite know the ins and outs of this world quite yet you see.  But I do think that if I can actually get a grip on the values of creature products and decide on the most cost-effective way to kill them, maybe I can actually make some pennies hunting the monsters and taking them down for their loot instead of aiming that boring sweat gun.  As for now though, at least I know I'm building up some more bank in that game so maybe someday when I stumble across the right guide or person, I'll have half a shot at power-fisting some daikabu youngs for their animal oils in order to combine with the sweats and sell the mindforce extracts at a 101% profit margin.
