I know many of you will hate to hear this, but the new map is having to be delayed one last time. The new date will be Sunday morning at 8:00am EST.

I've been putting in a minimum of 6 hours per day working on the new system, but unfortunately Joe has had things going on that has kept him from being able to put in many hours. As of tomorrow his schedule will open up more and we can, together, complete the remaining areas.

To update you on the status, the entire system is laid out and warp lanes are mapped. Over 40 planets are fully completed and ready to go. We are now moving to the orbits and moons. Once those files are done we will load it up and test each area prior to pushing everything to the public server.

Brief mention regarding the new faction planets. Those are created and ready to go, but I have not had time enough to load them in and take screenshots so that you can all finally see them. I plan to finally have that post up tomorrow night or Saturday at the very latest. All faction planet owners will have plenty of time to submit your new request for whichever planet you choose for your faction and all requests will be handled promptly.

I don't have time at the moment for much other than the new system, but if you have something important that you need to know please post below and someone from the admin team will respond as soon as possible.

We were aiming to have the new map ready in time for the November 15th starter planet wipe time, but it is taking a bit longer than expected to get everything right on the new map. We would rather take a little longer and get it right than to push something incomplete and not fully tested.
As of the time of this post, we anticipate being able to implement the new map on Friday morning at 8:00am EST (November 17th).
We will hold off performing the normal starter wipe on the 15th and just have the full wipe on the 17th. At least this will allow you all the weekend to jump in and check out the new map.

Greetings Everyone,

We will be looking to setup our very first EAG Community Meeting! That's right a chance to group up, talk, answer some questions. Currently we don't have a time right now for the meeting, that will come in the next few days.

Each meeting that is announced will have some guidelines attached with it. I'm looking for some folks to make suggestions around what you general things we should cover.

Post your suggestions below, so we can start to shape up how these meetings are going to work.

Thanks,

Stine

Greetings,

I am working on some staff alignments to help in providing better ways to communicate with each aspect of the EAG Staff Teams. Over the next week I will be changing some elements of the site / discord to provide a more streamlined approach. Just a heads up for now as some elements are shaping up, and the discord is updated.

Thanks,

Stine

Greetings Pilots,

We have had our share of bugs, and a whole slew of issues when it comes to the release of 7.0. With the initial release of 7.0, and it's update afterwards 7.1! We did do an initial wipe for 7.0, and then we were forced to do an additional wipe with 7.1. The first wipe 7.0 is usual for us with any major game update, however 7.1 was an unexpected wipe from all aspects. 7.1 was not even playable without a full complete wipe of the systems as the terrain issues prevented any type of play.

We now have 7.2 released and we have yet to work out some bugs and glitches that impact the server on a performance level, that makes the game not enjoyable to an extend. Talking with Elion around the issues that we have experienced, and continue to experience. We are left again with one option from Elion, that is to do a clean install of the server, and a clean game start.

As a team we held meetings around different solutions, and the how to provide the community with the information so that we could all understand together. We also talked about adding full custom planets and a new map so the players felt like they got something out of a complete loss situation. The goal for us was to provide this content, and extend it over time with additional harder (End-Game) style content. So we plotted a course and aimed our sights on 11/15/17 when the starter planet wipe would normally occur. So on 11/15/17 the server will be taken offline, cleaned out complete, and then reinstalled. At that time a new map will arrive, and some very interesting content awaits exploration. With that, the wipe includes Faction Planets, however a new template will be available for VIP Members to pick some nice custom looks that will only be available for Faction Planets.

We talked around different options for modding the game to save information, we talked around adding...
