    • Update 0.2.0

      Dear Community,

      Version 0.2.0 takes place now - have fun while playing ;)

      • Feature - Introduction of action points: each transport or military action as of now requires an action point from the town of origin. Each player´s town has two action points available from its inception. Every five town hall stages this number is increased by one (meaning that a town with a town hall level of ten has a total of four action points available).
      • Feature - Buying research with crystals: when researching ´Glass´ it is now possible to complete researches by adding a certain amount of crystals. The amount of crystals is dependent on the research and from the amount of research already completed by the researchers. The amount of crystals traded in hitherto is not applicable to this.
      • Feature - New building: Governor´s Residence. All palaces in towns which are not the home town will be converted to this building. The function of this building: Please see next feature
      • Feature - Introduction of corruption in the colonies: in all towns aside from the home town corruption is as of now present. This has a negative impact on the production of resources, research and satisfaction. By expanding the governor´s residence the amount of corruption is reduced. As soon as you have reached an expansion stage in your town that is one below the amount of towns possessed, there will be no more corruption in your town. Corruption will be increased step-wise with the upcoming releases to its full strength. The current and actual corruption (in brackets) will be displayed in the town hall.
      • Feature - Messages to the diplomat are now specially marked
      • Feature - Treaty offers can now be managed at the Diplomacy Advisor
      • Bugfix - Messages to the diplomat from users without an alliance are now correctly displayed
      • Bugfix - Messages to the diplomat from users with an alliance are now correctly displayed

      best regards

      Because I've gotten a lot of PMs from people worried that the new update isn't going to fix the research bug, I'm guessing that a lot of people didn't see this line or didn't fully understand what it meant. Soo, just to make sure you all see it:

    • A mini silent update you should know about: has only small changes in it, the most noticeable being that new e mail adresses need to be activated. This means that everybody that changed the mail adress in the past weeks or months needs to reactivate it in order to be able to play the game. Furthermore, any mail change now has to be confirmed by typing in the accounts password (this to avoid account theft by session stealing)

    • RE: New Version: 0.2.8

      At this time things are a little confused as you can probably tell. Because of all the feedback about the planned noob protection system, we've been told that they are going to make some changes to it.

      I'll keep you informed when I get more information.
