    As a flower runner i spend alot of my time watching my little plane flying through the clouds. those clouds are boring....

    What can Chedburn do to make it better?

    I recommend in-flight movies, just embed a random youtube video or something...

    Anyone else have ideas?

    Open another tab in your browser and watch Youtube videos.

    I agree though, I despise traveling in Torn. Just because not being able to do almost anything.

    Also, it's not only about the flights. Nothing really interesting to do abroad, there's only "Hunting" in Africa, and Switz for the rehab and that's about it.
    Would be interesting if they add some activity that you can do in every country.

    And if you fly to Japan or China, the plane faces the wrong way.

    Just sayin' ha. Would like an in-flight movie as well and maybe a cocktail or two.

    Ugh it is sooooo boring. I like the idea of more activities abroad but it increases your chances of being mugged or hosped there. Planes these days offer wifi at a cost - i'd happily pay for plane wifi on torn so that i could have access to more things on my laptop whilst flying.

    i totally agree on how boring it is and would love some sort of access to the casino through the laptop, but i don't think ched is gonna do anything about it. why should he make something so profitable more rewarding than it already is.

    Flower running isn't overly profitable and it takes money out of the game. But I agree it shouldn't be improved or nerfed. it's at a decent level.

    Note to self: copy paste more flowers.

    and Dudley, you make some money, but you lose out on other things like energy and nerve, you sometimes get stuck there for ages when hosped, and there are ways to make money without travelling.

    i'm soooooooo for an improvement to travelling.

    Put it this way, if the casino was able to be accessible through the laptop then everyone would just use it to hide money away making it safe to travel.

    If you want to do something while travelling, learn stocks :P

    Flower running has trade offs and being limited on what you can do is one of them.  I R+ every suggestion on asking for things like poker on the laptop, but in reality they are most likely not going to get implemented.

    My biggest tip for "Flying is Boring" is to work your RL around it. Only flower run during times you won't be at your PC or more importantly shouldn't be at your PC. Flying really helps on work days when I have deadlines and need to minimize those tempting Torn distractions.

    Things to do:
    - Faction Chat
    - Post in forums and I'm NOT talking about the lame flower thread (TravelRun is much more efficient)
    - Interact with people in real life

    I have more tips in my guide:

    Maybe yonder down to suggestions and see some that are already posted.  I suggested flash games at one point.

    Plan the day around it so you don't sit and wait around or only fly when your friends are on to chat with.

    But then you would get mugged the second you arrive because you are playing with a fortune and then there will be the inevitable "Omg I got mugged while purposefully carrying 2b, pls halp chad" and chad will happily oblige by federal jailing the muggers and torn will be a better place.

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

    At least poker.
    Maybe not Russian roulette but all the others.

    Also why can't we manage bazaars, if they were like eBay shops it would keep us interested.

    I've always thought stopping people playing the game (while flying/in Hosp/jail) is a bad idea, we just go to different sites and wait for our alarm.
    Like chaining on your mobile?
