Hi, my name is Samuel.

As you can see I am pretty much a 'newbie'.

Anyway I will get to the point, being a newbie I know how hard it is to get started and I was just thinking that maybe when people join they could get a little more or maybe a little bit more help. I personally was not going to carry on playing because I thought that everyone is towering over me and that I would have no chance at all in being successful.
And now after playing for almost 200 days I still have nothing, fair enough there is TCbasic for help and I can always ask staff for help but I genuinely didn't/don't get the relevant things I know or need.

I have been playing Torn for roughly a couple months and I struggled a lot, well I am still struggling to be fair. The Torn time says I have been playing for 199 days but I have been inactive due to personal reasons. I logged back onto my account after roughly 3 months and once again it's like starting from all over where I have nothing.

I know when people start they get a couple hounded and that's fair enough for some, but I think us newbies should get a little more help.

I would love to read your feedback and any information I can receive. But I must ask kindly that if you do not have anything nice to say, please do not say nothing at all.

Thank you.

This isn't really a proper suggestion.

I learned everything I needed from the wiki/tcbasic/forum/playing the game.

I feel there is enough help for new players. It is a lot easier for new players now than it was when I joined.
There were no companies you just had the city jobs, and those were different a bit back then as well. In companies you can pay more and get trained. There is more beneficial education courses. There are more ways to make money flower running and drug running, company special. A lot more is known about the game as well as there are a bunch of guides.

I can not remember exactly but it took me about two years to get a ranch.

It seems that now you start with a PI. Practically every new player age 0 lives in a PI :/

First off it took me a while to get a hold of myself financially and only recently (a few months ago) relaxed a bit and started messing around with my cash, so it took me approximately 2 years to do all this. Everything comes in time, just make loads of friends, that helps a lot.

Now theres WikiTorn, to go to. But in the past Just Tcbasic.com, for HELP on this game.

It would be nice if Ched was able to produce a Help file in PDF format, for people to download and read at their leisure.

as for the financial part, well its alot of hard work. I remember selling silver rings for a living and making meager profits from that.

I persoanlly think there should be a TC Welfare Office, for the really poor people. Funny as this may sound, Maybe a weekly or monthy issue is needed. There is, im sure ways to fix this, so theres no multi or regular player abuse.

Anyways good luck.



What time is it boys and girls?? Its Ass kickin' time!!

I was thinking of setting up a welfare office since they would never officially add it... Wanna help?

Well if you feel poor, go on the market.
Buy things like beerbottles at 10$ and sell them for 900.

That is $85000 a day right there. You can sell to those that have bazars, the market place is full of offers.
30 days of that and you can get the PI below. Count down to your own bazar for ease and profit.

Invest in a private island (renting)
It needs the airstrip & pilot. Everything else is optional.
Then import flowers and sell in a bazar.

It shouldn't be too hard to make 15*15.000*5 a day. or 1mil+ Rent can maybe be had for as low as 500ka day.
So anything above 2-3 runs (and they are all free thanks to the airstrip) is plus.


Frankly, noobies never had it this easy before. I was probly still searching for money at that age

Renting a PI is 1.5mill+ a day and nobody rents for less than 7 days so you need 10mill or more really.

10mill / 85k = Around 118 days.

Not that easy.

You get more when you start now than you ever got before. Now you get like 10 free energy/nerve/happy refills. It was never intended that you have everything in the game your first year of playing. If you stick with it in time you will get there, and like it has been said before there are also more and easier ways to make money than ever before you just have to look at all your options and be creative.

I wish you luck! If you ever have any questions there are plenty of people around that are willing to give input.
