    EntropiaTransport.com is proud to announce that our Training Period is over.

    We have been working hard over the last month or so to build up a crew and some faithful customers and are working on changing the mindset players have about the universe and space.

    "Space should be available to everyone regardless of their budget or level of play."

    October will be a promotional month for us which means all our current prices used during the Training Period will remain the same.

    Rocktropia <-> Calypso flights scheduled with the Mothership MacReady will have a flight departing every 4 hours from either Rocktropia or Calypso. (schedules are posted on our site)

    Arkadia <-> Calypso flights scheduled with the Starfinder XXIV will have a flight departing every 4 hours from either Arkadia or Calypso. (schedules are posted on our site)


    Scheduled Flights = FREE, anyone is welcome to use our scheduled flights for free, but a donation of 3-5ped is recommended to the Captain of the flight for his/her time and effort helping you out.
    If someone has payed for a warp during out scheduled flight your donations will go towards reducing their warp fees.

    Warps = 25ped per jump, as many people as want for the one low price rather it is during scheduled flights, VIP, or Hunting.


    Pricing starting November 1st will remain mostly the same with just a change in warp costs.

    Scheduled Flights = FREE, anyone is welcome to use our scheduled flights for free, but a donation of 3-5ped is recommended to the Captain of the flight for his/her time and effort helping you out.
    If someone has payed for a warp during out scheduled flight your donations will go towards reducing their warp fees.

    Warps = 30ped per jump, as many people as want for the one low price rather it is during scheduled flights, VIP, or Hunting.

    I am very proud of our Crew and how well they have managed to keep our difficult schedule.

    During our training period we have had 569 flights and 302 warp flights!

    Our Current Goals:

    • SI Upgrades for the MacReady - Thanks to Auktuma these have already been applied, just waiting for the next VU (maybe tomorrow?) for them to take affect.
    • 100 Paid Warps per week (2 full drives) - We opened up our Arkadia Schedule last week and with the two Schedules combined had over 70 warps, so I project that we will accomplish this easily within the next month.
    • Secure contacts with enough hunters to provide the Generic Fuses we will need to sustain this many warps - We are almost there, but are always looking for new sources for Generic Fuses, please contact me (Narfi) or any of our captains if you have any to sell.
    • A full month with 0 missed flights - We have 12 scheduled flights a day around the clock so this is a huge undertaking working with all time zones, we are currently still missing 1-2 flights a week, but with new Captains being trained I don't see this being a problem for us at all.
    • Adding VIP Hunting Packages to our business model/schedule - We have had a few very happy hunters on trips with us, but we need to work on a strong strategy and pricing plan to accommodate this on a regular basis.
    • Become one of the most active Transport Services in the game - I think even with just our training period we have accomplished this and can easily be counted as one of the top 5 most active 'fleets' in the game.
    • Remove the negative stereotypes about space and other Planets that Pirates and greifers have fostered and encourage safe and accessible transport to players of any level or budget. - There is nothing we can do about those who want to harass us or others, but we will continue to do our best to keep our schedules and to help all of our customers to the best of our abilities. Space is a fun place, and space does not have to be dangerous if approached properly. This is something that all the Major Mothership owners are striving to accomplish, and in that we are all working together towards a common goal. We each have different approaches and business models, but each of us is helping players and satisfying our customers needs in our own ways.

    If anyone needs a ride at any time, Contact us on our website at EntropiaTransport.com or PM one of our Captains in game, we can help you arrange for the cheapest or fastest flight possible depending on your needs and budget.

    That is it for this weeks report :)

    Until next week, Good Luck to All and safe travels,

    140 Flights
    70 Warp Flights


    All Time Totals,

    852 Flights
    462 Warp Flights


    This was a rough week with almost a day down for the buggy VU and issues the day after with Captains loosing connection and not being able to log back in for hours at a time.

    Still not too bad considering the issues, and picked up end of the week with new discoveries on the Fringe Planets encouraging travelers to go and get new toys.
    (I looted an SR51, a uber SIB BLP tagger in a crib raid on Rocktropia)

    ps. Please remember our promotional period ends Nov 1st, and warps become 30ped per jump. (still 50 for a double jump though)

    Week ending Oct 20th,

    150 Flights
    88 Warp Flights


    All Time Totals,

    1002 Flights
    550 Warp Flights


    We seem to be settling into a sustainable routine, probably time to start advertizing some, I just need to figure out the best approach to doing that.

    About 10 days left on the promotional pricing until we start charging 30 ped per warp jump.

    gl all :)

    146 Flights
    108 Warp Flights


    All Time Totals,

    1148 Flights
    658 Warp Flights


    Starting the 1st we start charging 30ped per jump.
    (50ped for a double jump if pick up is required or the ship needs to warp back to stay on schedule for its next flight, That is a 10ped discount for 2 jumps over paying for them separately)

    gl and have fun :)

    Week Ending Nov 3rd,
    130 Flights
    83 Warp Flights

    All time totals,
    1278 Flights
    741 Warp Flights

    Fairly uneventful week, switching to full pricing from our promotional pricing doesn't seem to be affecting the traffic on our ships, so that is good.

    Pirates are still clamming an imaginary Benefactor behind their harassment, but since I have received reports from crews on both TOS and EFA that they say the same thing when harassing their ships, I will continue to assume they are just trying to cause dissent amongst the owners. If any Ships need assistance while I am around, please let me know, I will do what I can to help.
