Posted: September 30, 2016, 06:18:08 PMSouth Island Reset

2016-10-07 Update: New characters may now be created on the War Island. Startup mode will cease on Monday.
2016-10-03 Update: Turns are now running, with the island in startup mode (no traveling beyond 1 region outside the realm). Elections will be held for rulers, who will then define their realms' governments, and subsequent elections may then occur for other government members.

New character creation will be enabled on Friday.

Update: The South Island has now been successfully reset. Victor characters with very high gold/bonds have had it reduced. If you detect any particular issues, please do not hesitate to report them, either on the forum or the bugtracker.

Victor characters have the weekend to discuss within their new realms; turns will be restarted after the weekend. New characters will be able to be created after a week. There are a list of changes for this round of War Island and a startup roleplay at the bottom of this announcement.

There will now be a period of conference among the victors, whose privilege it is to set up the governments and themes of the new realms. Once that is over, character creation will be enabled on the island and the regular startup phase will begin.

We on the dev team would like to apologize for keeping those of you playing on (or waiting to play on) the South Island waiting for so long before the reset. Real Life can sometimes be a Real Bitch.

But now we've got the details ironed out, and we're ready to set it all in motion.

That does, unfortunately, have to begin with a complete shutdown of the island, as there are a number of database modifications that will need to be made. That went into effect around the sunset turn today.

We are now working on the reset until it's ready. We expect that to take a few hours, but if we run into any snags, it might take as long as the weekend to sort them out. We thank you for your patience thus far, and ask you to be patient just a little longer, and we will get the next round of the War Island started for you.

The following changes have been made for this War Island:

Posted: September 12, 2016, 11:30:19 AMBlack Forest on Steam & Forum Changes

Hello Everyone!

First and foremost, Black Forest went live on Steam a couple days ago. If you've been holding out, Steam makes it easier than ever to download new builds, and the game is as free as it's always been.

In other news, I'd like to welcome Victor C, and Gabanus family to the forum moderation team. These two individuals have stepped up to keep an eye on the Locals boards, among others, which means I've more time to focus on more administration type things and less moderation type things.

Which brings me to my last point: The "Background" board has been moved to the Community category, all SM3 boards have their own quite place under "Tom's Other Games" now, and the BM Expansions boards are now under the BM category, and, most interestingly, a few new themes have been added. You can suggest more here.

If you've ideas on how we could make things better, as always, feel free to let us know! Thanks! [Read More]
