How to Earn PEDs by Sweating (Gathering Sweat) in Entropia Universe
Basic Info About Sweating
Sweating is process of gathering Vibrant Sweat from wild animals in Entropia Universe.
Sweating can not be performed on robots, other players or tamed pets owned by other players.
Sweating is one of the few activities in Entropia Universe that require absolutely no investments, skills of experience.
Player can start with gathering sweat immediately after joining Entropia Universe.
All you need is to use "VSE Mk1" tool that can be found in your inventory.
On average, player can gather up to 400-500 Vibrant Sweat in 1 Hour.
Every successful sweating attempt will add 1-4 bottles of Vibrant Sweat into your inventory.

Unfortunately, increasing level of your Sweat Gathering Skill (or Sweat Gatherer Profession) will not increase amount of Vibrant Sweat gathered per successful attempt.

*** Entropia Revival Project Event is INACTIVE ***
After few attempts to contact people who were organizers of this event (from January - February 2016.) and getting no replies I can say this event is not active anymore.
- Entropia Revival Project Event was big gathering of players at Camp Icarus (planet Calypso)...
During whole event every player could sell up to 2.000 Vibrant Sweat for 8 PEDs (4 PEDs / 1.000 Sweat) to event host...
At the end of event, event host asked a question and the first player who gave correct answer to host's question won all Sweat that host has bought during event (usually few 10.000s of Vibrant Sweat)...
Also, there were other mini-questions and small giveaways during event to make it all a bit more interesting...

Popular Sweating Locations
Planet Calypso: Most popular sweating locations on planet Calypso are: OLA 42, Royal Club and Boreas... Nea's Place used to be popular sweating location in past but now (August 2019.) it is pretty much deserted.
Planet Arkadia: Since I am not at Arkadia, I honestly don't know popular sweating locations there... The only one I am aware of is 8 Coins...
My Personal Opinion About Earning PEDs by Sweating
Earning PEDs by sweating is probably the most boring way to earn PEDs in Entropia Universe.
Making PEDs by sweating used to be much easier in past, especially because sweat was easier to sell.
Today (August 2019.) sweat market is over-saturated with offers while there is no much demand for sweat...
This creates constant drop of sweat price and constant increase of time required to sell gathered sweat to other players.
Just in the last 4 years (Dec 2015 - Aug 2019) price of sweat dropped from 1.7 - 1.9 PED / 1k Sweat to 1 - 1.1 Ped / 1k Sweat...
And there are no indications this trend will stop in future.
One bright thing for sweaters in 2017. was the new RCESS daily event that started at January 2nd.
This event didn't make wonders and brought sweat price back to 2 PED / 1k like it was before, but at least it slowed down a bit rate at which price of sweat is dropping.
Sweating was pretty good way to earn some starting PEDs in game - PEDs that can be invested into something better later. But today it is not the case...
With current state of Sweat market, you can earn 2-3 PEDs in 5-6 hours of sweating... Of course, IF you manage to find buyer - which can take more then a week sometimes...
The only way to earn good amounts of PEDs from sweating today is to use advantages of BIG Industries SSI Event, RCESS Event, or to find mentor/society/player who will buy your Sweat at price higher then in market.
