  1. Happy June! We have a lot of exciting news to cover, so let's dive into the newsletter! :D

    Developer Updates
    • We are happy to announce that the Empires Update was officially released last month! This new update is jam-packed with new commands that allow you to start your own Empire! Check out the Empires Update thread and the Empires wiki pages to get started.
    • Since the release of Empires, chickeneer has been hard at work fixing bugs. If you come across something that isn't working correctly, please send a message to pmdev.emc.gs to report it!
    • The developers will be starting work on 1.20 soon, as well as some of the future updates mentioned in the Empires update thread.
    Staff Updates
    • Waste reset incoming! The waste will reset with the release of 1.20 on EMC, which likely will not occur before June 22nd. Make sure to get your stuff out of the wastes before that date!
    • The new tutorial is still in progress! The tutorial will be making use of the Text Display feature that was made available for Senior Staff alongside the Empires Update.
    • Progress has also been made on splitting the New Player Guide into two pages to make it less overwhelming to new players. If you have feedback or suggestions for the new guide or tutorial, feel free to post it here!

  9. My internship ends in two weeks, but I'm not sure what my Saturday schedule will look like after that. I'm returning to ballet and a lot of rehearsals tend to fall on Saturday during that time. I will update you all as soon as I know!
