    this game has a lot of good ways to make money - but right now they all suck ass and need some changes a lot of things need buffs so that flying isn't  100% needed

    the mugging update was great because it let noobs mug 1m easy - if it hasn't dried up by now.

    Bounties -
    compared to mugging it's shit i dont know why anyone does it... doubling the cost of bounties and increasing the amount of hospital time - though a new tactic for factions to abuse bountying themselves to get chained less would occur but this ideas on the right path. bounties cant compete with mugging.

    Bazaars -
    bazaars also need a buff - the enemies list thing was stupid just change it so whenever someone buys from your bazaar your marked at having reduced mugs by 75% or something like that - take the clothing store 10 star idea and f**king use it somewhere better.


    Reviving -
    I see a lot of people complain of revive scammers if that's true then revives should be tradable / have a bounty list type deal where you can put a revive on yours or someones 'head' that people can claim. that is if revives are even alive after meds 2.0 - i stopped buying them that's for sure. if they are dead they need a buff for more appeal again.

    Maybe these would be alright as suggestions!

    Travel to Japan and play "Shogi"

    Travel to China and play "Mahjong"


    (You know like an illegal underground gambling club)

    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:
    http://www.torn.com/forums.php#/p=threads&f=61&t=15927411&b=0&a=0
    This is Exactly what i do, when your on torn and want to fly, fly to places that don't take too long, Canada, Cayman or Mexico, anything that takes longer, should happen when your really busy, and always keep a reminder on your phone  so you know when you land, and when you can, try to log and purchase and fly back (only takes 2 minutes), when you get home or you finish your tasks, you'll be back in torn with your items.

    Because sometimes you have to log out for awhile. You can't play 24/7.

    ConmanTrump [443688]

    We should be able access the casino on our laptop

    Chan-Bam [1861464]

    At least poker.

    Ozz [1536895]

    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.
    Since torn isn't ad based income, the number of page clicks and time spent online isn't exactly a key factor unlike other internet sites.

    I think there should be an OC for highjacking planes and when enacted, a random plane of passengers currently headed to a random place (or back to Torn) gets highjacked, the players on that plane (random players headed to said destination) get mugged and or hospitalized, or the plane crashes in a different destination hosping everyone there. To make it interesting for the players in flight, if they are online they could get an event option to try to stop the highjackers by fighting them. If they succeed, the OC fails but they get a reward from the "authorities." 


    PS. Ched will never waste his time in this.

    The best option allowed by Torn, which is not nearly enforced enough, and is never mentioned.

    Step 1: Hit the lower left button on your keyboard to the right of the CRTL button, and to the left of the ALT button.
    Step 2: Type out the letters "sol"
    Step 3: Hit your Enter key.

    ^ I don't think I'm doing it right on my android. I pushed the smiley face and typed in ðð¯ð´ but it just gave me these emoticons. 

    Should I try smashing it with a hammer?

    I hope I never fly with you in rl if all you're going to do is 'hoke' around and steal stuff.

    There should be more things on the laptop, being able to access the estate agents, item markets and auction house should be a definite. This is the 21st century and this is RESPO we are living in the future lets get some more functionality to these laptops!

    I also think added some things from the Casino should defiantly be added, if there is something to know about flower runners its that most of them have money! Let us gamble it all away so we can't afford the flowers by the time we arrive.

    But I think allowing us to make trades and what not on the laptop would defiantly help because it means I could make a bit of money on the side by selling things on the plane.

    that's a great idea - i love cocks.  but maybe mexico would be more likely to have lots of nice cock fights around though.

    if each little travel area had a thing you could do it in then traveling would suck - and since dogs wont be addeed in they wont add in cocks but they could have a little betting on cock fights that are taking place in mexico every few hours with a 50/50 chance you win or lose. sorta like RR but playing with our cocks instead.

    I like this suggestion too.  Betting on our cocks seems like a fun thing to do while traveling.

    I think more destination specific activities would be nice. You can bank in Caymans, rehab in Switz, check exp in China, and hunt in Africa. That's only 4/11 travel destinations though.

    Maybe yonder down to suggestions and see some that are already posted. I suggested flash games at one point.
    To be fair there are a ton of things I'd rather do than watch youtube vids or play some flash game...my main issue as part of torn is that while I travel, my game here is very limited, which is the part I find sucky.
