Club NEVERDIE was a nightclub on the Asteroid orbiting Calypso which today is commonly referred to as F.O.M.A. - Fortuna.

General

Club NEVERDIE (or short CND) is an 'asteroid space resort' in the MMOG Planet Calypso on the Entropia Universe platform. CND is named by its owner Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs after himself. Jon Jacobs bought the property in October 2005 for 100000 USD.[1]The Asteroid Space Resort was added to Entropia Universe with Version Update 8.0 on Dec 19, 2005.

With the collection of those taxes Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs claimed break even (=100,000 USD total income) for Club NEVERDIE as of August 18, 2006.
With the collection of those taxes Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs claimed break even (=100,000 USD total income) for Club NEVERDIE as of August 18, 2006.

NEVERDIE claimed to have recouped the original investment of 100,000 USD by a total of 82,270 USD from taxes, 11,340 USD from sales of apartments and 6,340 USD from the sales of shops by August 18, 2006 - not even 8 months after launch.[2]
On from the auction in 2005 Club NEVERDIE held the record for the "most expensive virtual object" until "Buzz Erik Lightyear" bought Crystal Palace Space Station for 330,000 USD in December 2009.[3]

Club NEVERDIE features:

  • 20 large Biodomes for hunting and mining activities
  • a circular shopping area with 66 shops, each capable of holding 220 items
  • 1000 appartments in 3 different sizes located in two 16-storey towers
  • 58 Teleporters to travel between the different properties


The most expensive virtual object

The sum of 100,000 USD was breaking the former record for most expensive virtual object held by Treasure Island which was bought by "Deathifier" for 26,500 USD.[4] Consequently CND was included in the Guiness Book of World Records 2008[5] as well as the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2010.[6] Unfortunately the latter was published in January 2010 when the record for the 'most expensive virtual object' was already broken by the sale of Crystal Palace Space Station to "Buzz Erik Lightyear" for 330,000 USD in December 2009.[3].

With the 2010 sale of the individual domes completed, Club NEVERDIE is now once again the most expensive virtual object in the world, netting a value of 6,350,000 PED ($635,000 USD).

Club NEVERDIE Revenues

The current receipts of Club NEVERDIE are generated by taxation of hunting and mining activities in the BioDomes. There is some misleading or even contradictoy information regarding the numbers of those revenues.

  • An official press release by First Planet Company (the planet partner operating Planet Calypso) mentions that Club NEVERDIE generated over 50,000 USD of income in its first five months.[7]
  • In August 2006 a Miami New Times article based on NEVERDIE's answers mentions a monthly average income of 10,000 USD.[8]
  • Also quite in line with the 10,000 USD monthly income is the press release by NEVERDIE later in August 2006 that claims a total income of 82,270 USD (from taxes) about 8 months after launch.[2]
  • According to Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs the approximate tax revenues of Club NEVERDIE add up to about 64,000 USD for the 1st quarter 2010 :[9]
    • January 2010 - 170k PED (=17,000 USD)
    • Febuary 2010 - 160k PED (=16,000 USD)
    • March 2010 - 170k PED (=17,000 USD)
    • April 2010 - 140k PED (=14,000 USD)
  • Tax revenues of CND Biodomes on daily basis:

The asteroid was bought by Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs for 100,000 USD making use of the buyout option.

The original press release by MindArk about the sale of the virtual asteroid stated the following:

SPACE RESORT SOLD! 24 Oct 2005

The ASTEROID SPACE RESORT was today, 24th of October 2005, bought by avatar "Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs" for a sum of 1,000,000 PED (100,000 US Dollar)!

The public auction offering the Space Resort started Friday 21st of October at a staring price of 1 PED, and with a buyout price of 1,000,000 PED. The response to the news of the Space Resort was immediate – just during the weekend eight parties approached MindArk expressing serious interest in purchasing it. Just three days after the launch, the buyout price was met by Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs, before the competition.

We congratulate him on his purchase and look forward to a grand opening around Christmas time! (ref?)

At the time of the auction, Jacobs lived in Miami, Florida, where Hurricane Wilma was creating havoc. He decided to buy out the asteroid before his power went down. After the purchase, he left a message to the Entropia Universe participants from an Internet Cafe:

. . Hi Everyone,

I haven't been able to log in because hurricane Wilma Knocked out almost the Power in miami. Also 2 huge trees in my yard. It was an auspicious Day! I was actualy standing in the middle of the hurricane recording a special message 2 u all on Video re the Space station when the huge tree in my yard toppled.....! When I get the power back at my house I'll...

. . edit it and post it somewhere.



So i come to you from an intenet cafe in South beach.

I've read some of the fun threads on Entropia forum, thanks for the support. Here's a quick summary of my intentions for the Space Station. However i'm having so many ideas, i think this will just scratch the surface. Gotta start somewhere though.

I see the Space Station "CLUB NEVERDIE" as a venue for Music and film in virtual Reality. I believe that beyond the existing community, there are millions of people that will LOVE PE once they discover there is a little more content available, not just the typical gamer stuff, but pop culture stuff.

I think that if CLUB NEVERDIE can draw more people to PE to listen to thier favorite DJ's or meet thier favorite artists in a virtual enviroment, they are going to discover the EXTRAORDINARY social and economic aspects of PE and our beloved virtual universe is going to grow.

Obviously the Space Station is gonna be a New fun place to play for the existing PE community, it will stimulate the existing economy because of its impact on space travel and space shipping among other things. (it is also my hope that the Space Resort will be a retail enviroment geared toward Shopkeepers and stores rather than one to revolve around the auctions)

But first and foremost, this is something that can be marketed to the outside world to bring more people to PE. I plan to invest considerably in marketing it to the outside world. As some of you know I'm already working with some of the most famous DJ's in the world on my Movie HEY DJ, including Junior Jack, Ferry Corsten, Carl Cox, Tiesto, Judge Jules, Pete Tong, marco V, Bob Sinclar, Spankox and more...... I hope to have one or more of these guys Spin live at the launch party... They have fans all over the World who I hope will make CLUB NEVERDIE thier primary destination for Virtual Entertainment... (As soon as they see you all, they're gonna want to buy cool clothes, guns and other stuff, they're gonna learn from you.) If I'm successful in my efforts then, we will all reap the benefits...

In my mind the importance of the tagged Client will be that, say someone discovers while visiting thier favorite artists website that they can get a sneek preview of their new music Video in CLUB NEVERDIE and that they can maybe win a copy of their l;atest CD - they will click on a link and download the CLUB NEVERDIE client and when they first arrive in PE, they will already be at the CLUB , not stumbling around in Port Atlantis...

I think this is incredibly exciting for the existing community, because these are people who have come for the music... They may not venture to the planet for a while, But you can come to Space and trade with them, supply them...

This is gonna be a huge amount of work, to brand CLUB NEVERDIE as the primary virtual destination for live entertainment, but that's my goal.

My personal hope is that one day in the near future, many people will be able to make a living in PE, inventing extraordinary professions for themselves Hunters, Designers, Space pilots, Asteroid Miners, etc - By investing in the Space Station, I take one more step to making that dream come true for myself.....

(I anticipate that CLUB NEVERDIE will eventually have a number of full time employees, more on that in the coming months......)

CLUB NEVERDIE where the party never dies...


PS. Sorry I couldn't post this at EntropiaForum... couldn't find my password in the dark... If someone would like to copy this to a thread over there I would be grateful.


Controversial discussion within the EU community

Due to the relation of Jon Jacobs and MindArk -the developer of Entropia Universe- and the order of specific events (like for instance news articles where Jon Jacobs identified himself as a spokesperson or ambassador for MindArk) the purchase was considered to be controversial by the Entropia Universe community. Adding fuel to the fire was that several other parties were close to get their bank transfers finalized which would have allowed them to place a bid at the buyout price, when suddenly the Project Entropia servers went down. When the game came up again, the estate deed for the Asteroid was gone from the auction and Jacobs was announced as the winner. Below is a timeline of the earlier articles, identifying the titles Jacobs used to identify himself with during interviews, and some of the statements he made in there.

  • 29 Sept 2004 Jon Jacobs appeared as "US Spokesman" of Entropia Universe at a panel on Digital Hollywood conference. [11]
  • 30 Dec 2004 Jacobs is referenced in an (French) article discussing the Treasure Island sale. In it, he is identified as "Jon Jacobs, qui officie aussi comme porte-parole de Mindark", which translated into English means as much as "Jon Jacobs, who also officiates as spokesman for Mindark". [12]
  • 09 Jan 2005 - Article published on telegraph.co.uk where Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs is cited: "I'm negotiating with the developers to build the greatest virtual nightclub ever". [13]
  • 08 Feb 2005 - Article in gamespot.com where Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs is referred to as "Jon Jacobs, US 'ambassador' for Project Entropia". [14]


  • September 2005 - Mortgage Documents
  • 11 Oct 2005 - Domain clubneverdie.com was created. [15]
  • 21 Oct 2005 - Mindark announced the sale of the Asteroid Space Resort. [16]
  • 24 Oct 2005 - Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs appears on a radioshow as "Jon Jacobs of MindArk". The interview is no longer available, but during the interview Jacobs never got a chance to say anything, due to the hurricane disabling the power. It is therefore possible the DJ and the article misunderstood the role of Jacobs in this. [18][19]
  • NEVERDIE commented on the discussion as follows:
. . NEVERDIE's last word on the subject!

Guys and Girls, You all want to know NEVERDIE’s secrets, some of you are angry and demand an explanation… You want an official explanation. Why did NEVERDIE buy club NEVERDIE.com on OCT 11th? How Did NEVERDIE succeed in using the Buyout feature one hour before Deathifier?

. . Well you have to look back in time for the answers… You have to look back to the time that I wrote I song called Gamer Chick and sent it to Mindark… who could have hated it and thrown it in the trash, but instead they liked it… At the time I sent it to

them, they were not hosting competitions offering thousands of dollars worth of Equipment for a player made movie to promote PE, nope they were doing none of that, yet here I was making music to celebrate virtual life and project Entropia….

When I sent them the song I included with it an Idea, “hey guys you could make the Juke Box cost a few pec to use and I could make money every time people listen to my song…” nothing wrong with that idea, that’s how juke boxes work in Reality….

Unfortunately Paying Juke Boxes was not very High up on their list of development priorities and they declined… I said hey what the Heck, you can just put my song in there anyway if you like it. Maybe later I could buy a night club or something….(lets not forget this was the early days, No land ownership, no taxes, Bars were empty, the most valuable items were mod faps… What the hell would be the point of a virtual Night Club?

Well some of you may know, I was producing and starring in a movie called HEY DJ! Featuring cameo appearances from many world famous DJ’s and I thought there might be a market for a virtual Night Club… Anyway that was that… I did however ask for permission to use a clip from Project Entropia in my movie HEY DJ!... Why? coz I love it, Coz I play it all friggin day and Coz my girlfriend loved it too…. So I put a scene of Tina and I playing project-Entropia in my movie… Hey and you know what else… I was distributing a lot of my own movies on DVD as well and I thought it would be cool to have the PE Movie on my DVD’s as extra content in the special features sections. Mindark had no problem with it… Free Publicity for them and I liked it too, I thought it was Cool and Hey after all MA was just a small company and an indie game developer, and I’m an indie Filmmaker…

I also offered to appear at a couple of conventions in Los Angeles, since MA had no one in the USA to represent them… By this time they knew I loved PE and I loved the whole concept of a Real Cash Economy, so they approved… Of course I had to provide some details to the people who ran the convention for their brochure so I said I was the US spokesman and people could ask me questions about marketing and business development, of course I would be referring interested parties to MA…. Was I paid by MA to do this ? No? was I employed by MA? Nope…


I Spent many years in Hollywood working on all kinds of stuff that I was passionate about for nothing… I am a person who pursues their dreams. I have a career of low budget art movies to prove it… Labours of Love, that I rarely got paid to do… Why did I do them, because I believed in them and I believed in myself… I believed that somehow my destiny lay in following my heart…. I often starved, I worked at starbucks… I even wrote a book About my journey……

So how does this tie in with Club NEVERDIE? Well when Treasure Island was added to the auction, I thought cool I will buy it and turn the castle into a Night Club…. I sold My mod fap, my shadow armor an imp fap, almost everything to the point that I no longer had the tools to Play PE…. I amassed a warchest of $20,000+ largely from in game profits… still concerned it wouldn’t be enough I started pre-selling housing lots on the forums….. I wanted to take money out of my Real World House But Tina Was fragile and I felt it would be too much of a risk…

Well I thought I would win Treasure Island, I was already planning my Club NEVERDIE, I told many other gamers that I would like to have a club… I even mentioned it to MA That I would want them to make some changes to the castle If I got it, so I could make a nightclub…

Anyway Auction time came around I had $26,000 in PEd, I thought I was going to get it for $10k, almost everyone else thought it was mine… And Whaddya know? Deathifier appears with a formidable war chest put together from a group of private investors outside of PE and he wins the Island….

Do you think anyone else in PE was as affected by that more than me? I was the sole underbidder? I had sold the rarest, coolest equipment to buy this place, I had all kinds of plans that were now put on hold…

What you think the first thing I did was? I asked MA to put something else in the auction, I’ll buy it? C’mon, I got $20,000 in cash here?

Did they? NO!!! it wasn’t on the agenda… not a priority…I watched like everyone else as the Treasure Island generated lots of publicity and I knew that I had helped make that happen if it were not for both Deathifier and I fighting for Treasure Island It would have sold for maybe $5k and the world might never have noticed….

SO I just lost the greatest PVP event in PE, and what did I do? Quit? Well Nearly…. I mean Tina died soon after, MA built a memorial, for the beautiful Gamer Chick, some players bitched and cried favoritism, I ran into financial difficulties, sold my pre-gold IMP MK II, etc etc… People flamed me for using Island girls Avatar to buy out one of NEVERDIE items… Heck I even warned people on the forums I was withdrawing the item, before I did it… Yes I thought about quitting, but I’m a passionate Person and I wasn’t going to let anyone… ruin my plans…. Nope I knew Mindark was gonna need to make another splash, sell off some wonderful virtual Real estate and this time, I had nothing to Lose, my life was already in ruins, girlfriend dead, Income dried up, resources tied up in a friggin DJ Movie… Hell this time I would sell the House IF I had to….

I was ready to pounce, and while you all were busy hunting and crafting I was refinancing, I was plotting, I was buying Web Domains, I was telling everybody in the Dance scene that I was gonna start a virtual night club and I would want them to spin there…

I was actually getting ready to buy the piece of land above memorial Island, lots of people knew that I wanted it… It was gonna be a virtual Ibiza, it was only slightly smaller than Treasure Island… But then Mindark decided it was time to show the world once again the Value of Virtual Real estate and they chose to create a space resort with a nightclub, Of course they knew I wanted a nightclub, maybe they had me in mind, they knew I was hungry to get back into the game after my defeat at the hands of Deathifier And Hey guess what, they knew it would generate a #%$^@ boat load of publicity if it sold for $100,000, maybe they figured If someone were to really put that kind of money together, they would need a buy out feature to keep the transaction clean…

Nevertheless they timed the auction to end, December 19th around the same time Treasure Island ended a year before… that’s a sure sign they thought it was gonna be a long and fun affair…

They added the Resort News to the main page the day before Memorial Island N LA auction was due to end…of course I decided not bid for it… Jenna Star Mercury Spent a lot of time on that Friday trying to talk me and Deathifier into joining a consortium to buy the resort… He told me that Deathifier wouldn’t join the consortium,,, What did that tell me???? Deathifier was going to go Solo, he already recouped most of his dough from TI! Jenna wanted it because he knew it would make History… …

I had a friggin Hurricane Bearing down On me in MIAMI!!!!!! I was already READY, this thing had my name written all over it… Do you think I was gonna get my ass Whooped Again???

Come On People are you NUTZ??????

Deathifier was thinking the same Thing.. HE moved Money from down under like a friggin magician!!! HE was ready too!!! His investors were ready!!!!

The same two People who duked it out the year before already had their fingers on the Button!!!!

That aint Rocket Science!!!

And whatdya know there was a few other smart folks breathin down our necks, but lets face it, they weren’t nearly as ready, they hadn’t already paid in blood Sweat and tears!!!

So What happened??????? NEVERDIE came back from the dead, of course he never really died after all, he was just licking his wounds…

And you know what Else NEVERDIE had his shit together, his domain names, his business plan…. And what happened… The Story Landed on the Front Page of the BBC News 3 times in 10 days… “Virtual Night Club to Rock pop Culture!!!!”

I haven’t stopped working since the auction ended, just telling the world how incredible Project Entropia is and how Virtual reality is the future…. I just had a TV crew in my house for 2 days and I bared my soul to share with the world my virtual dreams…

I’ve been bleeding cash for a while now, web design, mortgages, domain names, I got it all riding on Club NEVERDIE.

And many of you may think well man that’s insane, you can’t do any better than that… Well think again… Did you watch the VGA (video game Awards) there were a million Stars there… all the great games… any mention of PE? Nope. Was Deathifier there? NO? Was NEVERDIE invited? NO! You wanna know why I called my club NEVERDIE? Because if you wanna really crack the mainstream… you gotta Brand your ass… You wanna get on Oprah, you gotta make a million bucks in virtual Reality not Spend $100k….

That’s where my head is at everyone! Im going for Oprah, Im going for the front cover of Rolling Stone. Im going for the front Cover of Time Magazine… Coz that’s when people are really going to take notice, that’s when our little virtual universe is gonna Explode that’s how high the stakes are…

And that’s all your gettin’ from me on this subject, I got a shit load to do, I got a bunch of crappy mobs to exterminate off the face of my Space Station… I got a 6 year old boy with no mamma, that needs to be read a bed time story and I got a party to start at the greatest virtual Night Club in the Universe!!!
