    So my PC is now approaching upgrade time (I upgrade every 5 years). (Keep in mind that I am not a PC techie person)

    Currently I have an Alienware X51, though instead of upgrading in 2018, I started thinking of just upgrading certain components i.e. the graphics card.

    Then while looking at Cards I noticed that many of then now support 3D and VR, this raised the question:

    Is anyone out there using VR in Entropia ?
    is it currently supported ? i.e PvP or Space etc ?
    Is VR planned for the near future ? (I am referring to near future here in EU time/concept, thus next 3 and half years ?)

    If not VR would wait for my 2023 upgrade.

    There are ways to do VR with Entropia but they are a little jank. Official and proper VR support has been promised by MA, but that wont happen till the DirectX 11 overhaul at a minimum: https://www.entropiauniverse.com/bu...ia-Universe-Ending-Support-for-Windows-XP.xml

    For now my best advice is to wait on a upgrade. Some areas of Entropia will require a strong setup to reach high framerates at vr ready resolutions, Celeste Habour comes to mind as one area. When the VR update does come out the next gen of cards will no doubt be out, and the current generation big boy cards will be much cheaper.
