29th october simuland news

Work on the backend script is delayed, both the commerce and res simulation's are done and hopefully working correctly but i still have the industry section to do. Once that is done and work on the employment section is done then i'll make a sign up script and a warehouse script. A new world which will run 24/7 will be set up. This new world called 'new earth' will at first have very little working on it due to the lack of building's and product's in the database. This release will be version b0.4 and will be released as a patch to the previous version. Please note this will remove all data from current database's.... read more

Also a warehouse system was added though there is no front end where player's can buy in stuff, this will be created shortly.... read more

The documentation is just a rough over view of how things work and is reasonably small and is aimed at those wanting to help develop the game. The biggest help they have is an explaination of the current database structure which can be valuable to php coders.... read more
