1st December approaches ….

… and I better get a water bucket to extinguish the servers if they start melting because I screwed up something in the code that gets active soon…

The surprise is approaching …

So one part of the surprise is now available on public worlds. So you might be looking forward to open the doors when it’s time to see the real surprise!

(I just hope we didn’t do any (bad) bugs here, this feature is enabled everywhere at the same time, so it’s … kind of risky. But I hope it’s worth the risk!)

But there’s Read more…

One of quite a few features in 1.30 is going to be an alliance page where you can see the facts of alliances – yours and others. It also sums up a few facts on the members of the alliance. You can reach it via the player’s profile.

It lists all the towns and forts an alliance has and if you move your mouse over the town or fort, it gets highlighted in the map:
