Server Downtime (21st of August 2011 @ 10:00am ET)

  1. It's time for server updates. The server will be down for about 30 minutes Sunday August 20th at 10:00am ET (14:00 GMT).

    The biggest change is a complete overhaul of the store system. Unfortunately we are not going to have the fancy floating items in the store any more. But the good news is that all players will now be able to create their own stores. I will be adding a guide on how this will work before the release (in the server guide).

    Other changes:
    • The /town commands will now work in ANY world spawn (so in the Wasteland you just have to make it to the protected spawn and you can then use any /town command such as /home)
    • "Shortcut to your residence" teleporters in the world spawns have been removed, see the change above.
    • Added several new mod and hack checks, will now catch more cheaters.
    • Fixed the error shown when you try and build in the Town spawn.
    • Admins will now have colored names in chat.

  2. Awesomeeee. I like these new changes =D
  3. Aweh. I always liked the little safe buildings and the town main building. now they're useless.
  4. They are not useless, when like when you go from Town to the Wasteland you will always start in the spawn building. Additionally I think many new players will tend to use the teleporters until they catch on to the chat commands.
  5. I'm still going to use them =]
