Once you reach level 15 you are able to travel overseas by visiting the Travel agency in the City Center. While traveling, you will have limited access to some Torn features if you own either an in-game laptop or pc. See Laptop section below. Each destination has a unique set of items that cannot be found in Torn City.

  • Please note that items abroad have limited stocks which are restocked regularly, it is also hinted that there will be some items stocked irregularly in the future [1].
  • Other players may see where you are traveling to on your profile page. But if you are in a 10* theater, then your traveling status and location will be hidden.
  • There is a variance of 3% on flight times, this explains small discrepancies in the flight times you might notice.
  • A flight time can be extended by someone in a Detective Agency using the 'Watchlist' job special. The delay will increase the user's personal & faction stats for travel time.
  • Players whose last action is greater than 24 hours ago cannot be attacked while they are in another country unless required by a mission.

Laptop

Note: Due to the Laptop no longer being available for purchase in the Points Building, it is possible to use the Personal Computer to access any of the same features. However, this does require you to own a Personal Computer.

A Laptop allows you to:

  • Check your Mail.
  • Check the current Stock Market and Your Portfolio.
  • View Newspaper articles (including the Archives), Freebies, Classified Ads, Personals, Bounties, Comics, and Chronicles.
  • View and post in the Forums
    • While the Laptop does allow you to view the Forums, it is also possible to do this as normal, by using the 'Forums' link on the top header.
  • View player profiles, display case, and personal stats.
  • Program a Virus.

Some features listed above may not require a Laptop or Personal Computer to view.

While using the Laptop, you cannot:

  • Check Faction or Company profiles, or apply to them.
  • Check player Bazaars.

Historical Notes

With the travel update on 02/03/12, the names of several flight destinations were changed to different cities within the same country. This was presumably due to the new travel times they calculated to these locations [2]. The old city names and travel times may be seen in the history of this page [3].

With the same 02/03/12 update to travel, flight times with a property Airstrip were increased slightly from 2/3rds to 70% of Standard (in addition to the adjustments to Standard flight times to all destinations). Also, prior to the update the WLT benefit only gave the 50% reduction to flight time; there was no +10 item carrying bonus.

Prior to the 02/03/12 update, a Laptop had additional functions allowing you to also:

  • check the Lowest Auction Bids for each Drug.
  • check the Cheapest and Most Expensive Market Prices for each Drug.
  • check the Lowest Auction Bids for each Item.
  • check the Cheapest and Most Expensive Market Prices for each Item.

16/04/13 Flight times have changed slightly, this was due to a repositioning of the physical location of Torn City in the world in preparation of a future update.

Previously, player images could not be viewed through laptop (though could have when logged off).
