Good evening Skyrates,

On behalf of the developers, I apologize for the apparent cone of silence about reset news. A large amount of work has been going on, and as such we have not been doing a good job of keeping you all informed.

We are late.

I am sure this comes as no surprise to a great number of you, seeing as we have gone past our intended deadline. As per an earlier discussion, at some point we decided to be ambitious for this reset and try to get in a number of new features and upgrades. While we have been doing this, the game has had to be down for longer than we anticipated.

So when will the game be back up?

At this time, there are a number of final checks that must be passed before we will open the game back up to you all. As for the specific date, I do not expect it to take longer than two weeks from this date. We do not want it to take that long, and will endeavor to have it back up before that date, but two weeks hence is at about the time where we simply *can not* and *should not* have it down any longer. It *will* be up by then.

Once again, I apologize for the prolonged delay. I thank you for your patience, and I hope we are able to maintain your good will.

In an effort to keep you all informed, I am looking to have this post be a final tallying of our tasks that must be done before the game is released. They are in no particular order, and will be marked off as they are completed.

Reset Status - Complete, Ready for Release.

1. Finalized plane stats - Complete
2. Integration of new skyland type - Complete
3. Finalized world layout - Complete
4. Economy testing. - Complete
5. Combat testing. - Complete
6. Combat Information testing - Complete
7. Craft Weapon screen UI - Complete
8. Website Updates. - Complete
9. Crew Changes - Complete.
10. Internal testing Start - Complete
11. Internal testing Finish - Complete

We all know that Captain Mullet will be the most honorable among everyone!

Thanks for the update, Lord Gilbert, I'm sure I'm not the only one that really appreciates all of the effort that the developer team puts in on the game.

Does the Sky-rating affect any aspect of the game or is it just a way to take a tiny satisfaction in marking someone as infamous? My guess is no in-game effect but wanted to make sure.

Wow! Lots of new features coming in. I'm excited; I'll definitely make time to play again this round.

Could you insert a Chaotic button between Honorable and Infamous please? Or more preciously use: Honorable to Chaotic Good to Chaotic to Chaotic Bad to Infamous. Things aren't just black and white anymore, we need more definition.

[Edit: Forgot to mention about the new reset date...so much to do and so little time...I think the devs need more life time during the holidays and should take the reset past January 2nd at least!]

Well Captain Mullet will say this...

If Axel ever gets above Captain Mullet in the infamous... Captain Mullet will have to step up Captain Mullet's game...

Just wondering if the devs were planning on a back-up server for when the game is actually re-released. Just for the flood of skyrates that want to try out the new features.

Just a thought...

Much as it pains me to say this, I agree with Lomondra. I want the game back as soon as possible but I also want the developers to enjoy the holidays.
