    first sorry if i missed thread on this if there is one and posting a new one --but my gripe is the laptop when traveling is way to limited -- if u want to make this game as close to real life as possible then we should be able to access things like any business person should --first i should be able to access my business while traveling to take care of thing there like any business person who travels ---like any business person i should have access to business funds through the net with transfer to do business abroad then i would not have to worry about being mugged when i get there ! thank u for letting me say my piece !!

    I agree that more features would be useful but I can't uprate your suggestion as is:

    For instance, worrying about being mugged is a large feature of travelling. I am not a fan of mugging generally (I only mug abroad, and that is when I know I cannot travel back without wasting energy) but this is the area that I think we have the most control over preventing muggers get the better of us. If I don't know I will be online when you arrive then I don't take much cash and sometimes close my bazaar before travelling.

    When you say 'access your business' do you mean as a company director or your bazaar? I would agree a Company Director should be able to perform actions within their company but I wouldn't want to be allowed to add and remove things from my bazaar. It would be more realistic but it would also make the game too easy to avoid risks.

    I do think it should be possible to put properties up for rent or buy or sell them and to set bounties or buy them off. Also to apply for jobs or factions should be doable while travelling, as should accepting applications if you are a Director or Faction leader.

    It would be helfpful if it was possible to use a DP while travelling to prevent loss of donator status. That and getting another reminder 6 or 12 hours before it lapses.

    So basically a lot of things should be doable but I don't think we should have acces to our Items, our stored cash, our bazaars or detailed information about other players (but we should be able to see our own detailed info). Perhaps detailed info about others might be possible while travelling back to TC but not while on the way there and defintiely not while actually at a destination.

    Yes i meant business not bazaar-- this way could interact with business do trains for the employees and such to keep business going so to speak --- now have another point to bring across to you -organized crime in real world -- don't they use internet to set up some of the crimes they do ?? of course they do so if u allowed us to interact with our faction on the lap top we could organize crimes to be done at later time !

    On the theme of the company trains, I consider it would be unfair if the trains were equally effective if the director is travelling than if he isn't, they should make the company trains be available but make them less effective if the director is travelling than if he isn't. Compare it to real life,if the director trained his employees by a laptop, it wouldn't be as effective if he could see them to make them learn better. I think the basic idea of Torn is to be as closest to real life as possible (with some other factors to make it interesting), so by making this little change among others mentioned above, it would be better.

    Honestly I think some of the computer science courses could be changed to allow you different abilities when traveling. 

    Online gambling - Allows you to take part in PVP casino games(not including russian roulette) could also bring back Chess, I am sure passing 5 minutes of air time with a chess game would make it a bit more popular.

    The work from home and earn thousand from your sofa course - Allows you to change description, prices and open/close your bazaar, adding/removing items I think would be a little too free.

    Internetting for the underground - In modern society the dark web is the criminals safe haven, allowing factions leaders/co leaders and managers to manage OCs, permissions, members and armouries would allow factions that small advantage, it would not directly help our in war but if a member is online and sees they are being chained against they could quickly mail for permission grabbing an xanax and claiming a few delicious retal bonuses.

    I would suggest a few more courses but it is a little late.
