Chip Shortages rock Virtua

Chips have recently become scarce throughout Virtua. Electronic traders everywhere have been hit hard, and PCs are becoming a rarer and rarer export for mayors to get hold of. It appears that the Gold in Nasdaqar has all but run out due to large amounts of digging by NSQ residents and some foreign MVs, leading to chip makers not having the materials to create this vital product.

Some traders have gone so far as to buy FES chips until a source of chips can be found in order to keep with demand, and the FES stores have begun to drain empty of chips because of this. If the shortages continue, traders may have to source chips from other countries and lose profits, and increases in electronics prices will be likely, which creates a new set of problems in itself, especially with tourists, which are often the biggest customers of electronic traders.

Our resident chip seller, Gean Starwind, has filled his stores with trees to replace his chips, which is at least good for mayors who were looking for trees to be exported, especially in Cashington, where lot condition is a constant problem and rarely stays over 93. However, hopefully a source of gold will be found soon, whether it be a player or an MV, which will allow Gean Starwind to once again sell the chips which many traders rely on for their products. Until then however, electronics are going to be a difficult set of products to get hold of.

Virtua General(Short) R111 Day 12/21

The life in Virtua have been going on since Naters disappearance. Some problems have been solved, other problems is still a big question.

A lot of cases have been running in Virtua Court, one of the most ‘spectacular’ cases is Bleech accusing Andoversr of hiring him, a criminal, as judge in the court which is NOT allowed. Andoversr is keep saying that he was making a typo-mistake, but was it just that? Also Minimized(A Digitalian) is accused in our court, as on of MoonPoker’s Bylaws have disabled our law saying that only Virtuans can sue other Virtuans in our Virtua Court.

Virtua have also been lacking in the amount of available chips the last days(Chech the Article by Forsties for more information).

Lastest news have been that Andoversr have been requesting some discussion about Rokta’s job as Mayor of Nasdaqar, as he according to Andoversr have not been doing his job according to the Mayor Manual.

What has become of Nater?

During the middle of this week, people began asking questions as to the supposed disappearance of our beloved Vice President and Consul of Finance, Nater. But what has happened to him?

Many of the citizens of Virtua have attempted to make contact with him, with Dj Ricky going as far as to email him (no reply as of the time this was written), and some have seen him in other online games, but so far nobody has managed to hear his story behind his absence. Many citizens have wondered why Nater would leave Miniconomy without notice, but some of our more experienced players have noted that something similar happened in round 104, with Nater returning midway through round 108 (only to be bankrupted shortly after). Others have suggested real life problems affecting Nater, but nobody can be sure.

The repercussions of Nater’s absence were felt most strongly by traders at first, as there was little gas to be found in Virtua for most of Tuesday, but also by the Mayors of Virtua, as no budgets could be given out, leading to a nationwide shortage of exports and buildings. Lot conditions became a worry, especially in Cashington and Centropolis, as these cities have the most resident resource diggers. It is likely other areas will be obstructed by Nater’s absence, notably the International court, as Nater is the Chairman there, as well as our National Archives, and also Nater’s own project, the “Case Records Office.”

Multiple gas traders have come forward since Nater’s disappearance, as well as a Monument in memorial of our Vice President erected by Mystq, the mayor of Centropolis, and Refund has been reassigned as the temporary Consul of Finance, sparking some controversy, so all of the most pressing problems for Virtua have been solved, and life seems to be returning to normal for its citizens. One question remains though; Will we be seeing Nater return to Virtua soon, if at all?

Virtua General R111 5/21

Welcome to another round in Virtua.

The first day started out a bit slow, since we did not have a wood trader the first hour, but the new player Twistedmaniac had talked about doing wood, and he did when he came online.

The first two days went fast but there was wood problems sometimes, but most of the time Virtua was well supplied with all resources.

However everything went wrong after Nater left and we was missing Gas for several hours, not only was he the only gas trader, but he was also the Vice President, CoF and the IC Chairman.

We had cities without budget for for more then 24 hours and it left a few scares on our economy.

Our trade went back to normal after Twistedmaniac made a gas mv, which could fill the gap after Nater left us.

Bleech was fired doing the first day for having overlook a part of our lawbook, which didn’t allow him to perform crimes, sadly he learned it the hard way and was fired for hitting someone with a plank.

Cyberians has been invading Virtua with MV’s based in Nasdaqar & Cashington, Bleech said in chat that it was to get the trade going in NSQ, however many seems to think otherwise.

Our own President MoonPoker came in troubles after missing a new addition to our law book, since only allowed either the President or Vice-President to have another Council title, that meant he have been breaking the law since day 1 without even noticing it himself…

 

Virtua court has been busy with 6 cases, which meant that Forsties, Dj Ricky and Refund have been working 24/7 to make verdicts.

 

 

To sum up, our VP left without notice, Trade had a few problems but overcame them, Cyberians invading Virtua with MVs.
