Forum Update, Badges, Other Things

Hi folks!

Forum Update

We’ve updated the forum layout to be much more in keeping with the game’s design, and to better match the blog too. Stereo has worked very hard on it and done an excellent job (I helped by pointing out pixels), so show her some love. We’ve got built-in avatars now, so you can choose one of the starting race emblems too, if you like. If there are any problems or glitches with the new layout, let us know on the Site and Forum Support subforum.

You may also notice I’m sporting a new Staff badge and a couple of ribbons for Artist and Writer on the forums. The first step is to make sure we can present all the badges nicely, so I think that can be considered done. We’ll be working on a way to get you all hooked up with your appropriate Indiegogo backer badges sometime in the near future. (I have the ribbons just for display purposes).

Forum avatars have been bumped to 130px for the new layout, so some of you may need to reupload yours to get them to display correctly and use the new pixels.

More stuff after the break!

Homemaking

Hi folks,

We have a forum now! It’s very basic at the moment but we’ve got lots of plans for it. Stereo’s working hard on making it all pretty and adding cool stuff, and we’ll be adding more subforums later once we get around to bringing moderators on board. There may be some teething problems with it as we work to get everything working 100%. If you have problems with the forum, tell us here.

We’ll still post updates here as well as the forums, but bug reports and problems should all go in the bug reports forum. Ideally we’d like all your feedback there where we can easily read through them. Please have a look at the rules (link at the top left of the forums) before posting, too.

We’ve also launched our Patreon page. We’re not offering any rewards (yet), as I’d rather be committed to making the game than producing exclusive content. The Patreon is, after all, to fund the game. Hopefully it shouldn’t be too long before we can offer Backer tiers to patrons, though it’s impossible to say when at the moment. Have a look at the Patreon for more information.

Our next update will be on the parser system, which I’m pretty excited to work on. In the mean time, feel free to start some discussions here on the game and talk about what you like, what you dislike, and anything you’re excited for!

Until next time!

PSA: The site and forum may be down around the 9th-10th. Our host is undergoing migration at that time.
